Brazilian Steakhouse
Fogo de Chão is a leading Brazilian steakhouse, or churrascaria, which has specialized in fire-roasting high-quality meats since 1979 utilizing the centuries-old Southern Brazilian cooking technique of churrasco. Fogo offers guests a wide variety of simply seasoned meats, that are carefully fire-roasted to expose their natural flavors, including the house specialty picanha sirloin, filet mignon, ribeye, and lamb chops to name a few. Additionally, Fogo offers a gourmet Market Table & Feijoada Bar, which includes seasonal salads, soup, fresh vegetables, feijoada (traditional black bean stew with rice, fresh orange and yuca flour), and much more. Southern Brazilian side dishes such as pão de queijo (warm cheese bread), crispy hot polenta, and caramelized bananas are served family style. To further complement the dining experience, the restaurant offers an award-winning wine list, creative and classic cocktails, and a tempting dessert menu.

We come here at 4 of 5 times a year, the service varies from visit to visit. Sometimes they are on and friendly, sometimes they are off and not so friendly...honestly for the price they really should be on every visit.

Truly disappointing. It started out quite nice when Fogo first opened here, but has slowly started to deteriorate on service. I’ve been to almost every Fogo de Chao across the country and this might be the one I’ll avoid.

Enjoyed this place. Loved all the yummy meat carved at your table. Staff was excellent and friendly. It was a little loud and tables were close together so if you are looking for a quiet romantic experience I'd pass on this place. Good for families and celebrations of larger groups.

The meats were a bit too salty - would’ve preferred less seasoning, so I can taste the meat itself! A pasta bowl at the salad bar wouldn’t be amiss either.

Good experience overall - Meats are good, frequency of servings good, friendly staff, Salad Bar OK but not great...Cocktails and Wine prices are a bit on the high side, not always justified - biggest issue is that the place - when full - is pretty packed - means it's hard to get to the salad bar, lots of folks running through tiny aisles and noise level is high so conversations at larger tables are kind of hard....

Legitimately not good. Our servers had some serious BO happening and the food was very underwhelming. Especially given the price. I would much rather go to Morton’s and spend $100 more to get food that is 1000 times better.

Meats were all over cooked and chewy. Did not get much service from servers, only when we were close to being done. Mentioned in the reservation that it was our anniversary but server never asked us about it. The tables next to us were all asked by their servers if celebrating any occasions. Another table had a couple dirty plates that needed to be taken away and the customer had to look for a server to help remove the plates.

We've been to many Fogo's over the years and have always loved them. This one, however, was a bit disappointing. The salad bar seemed smaller than usual and the seating was cramped (we were pushed up very close to the salad bar). The meat was fine, although I never once saw any lamb chops (my favorite) come near. The service was great, but overall, the experience didn't really live up to the price tag.

The food and wine were both great. But we were seated at the very far end corner at a long table because we were a large party. It was hard for the servers to get to the guests who sat inside. I think a round table setting would have been better. Or if the servers can approach from both ends of the table would have been better, too.

Food was good but the wait staff was not listening to how you like your meat cooked. Ask for medium and the guy planted an almost rare piece on the plate. Manager or who I thought was the manager looked at it and asked if it was what I wanted. I kindly said it wasn’t and I asked for medium. She even agreed that the meat was still raw. Took it back to the kitchen and showed her workers but nothing else was said, not even an apology. A piece of dessert would have a been nice for a better review.

not sure it was with the money...great setting but we were there for our anniversary and got sat right next to the salad buffet ....i cant tell you how many times the back of my chair was bumped because tue wait staff needed to get by...that was annoying. Great place to go for high end dining...not great for an anniversary...wont make that mistake again.

My first time experiencing Fogo de Chao and it was a lot of fun. The service was impeccable and the food was fantastic! There were so many different choices and all of it was great. The group we were seated next to was obnoxious and probably should have been cut off from alcohol but other than that it was a fun time.

I love this restaurant. I recommend fasting a day or two before hand so you can just keep eating. You'll get the meat sweats. It's worth it. I chose this place for my birthday because it's where you can eat alllll your feelings away about getting older and no one will judge you for it. Keep the green side up!!

We had been here previously and had a fabulous experience so when my son was turning 18 this is where he wanted to go. I was slightly disappointed. It was a big chaotic. Never once was the special occasion mentioned. Our waiter was wonderful and friendly but the service overall was really slow, there weren't enough men serving meat, they would go to the big parties and then be out and go back to get more meat and we would just sit there waiting...it was frustrating. Drinks weren't refreshed unless we flagged someone down. Overall it wasn't as fabulous as the time before and I'm not sure I would plan to come back based on how much we spent and really didn't get that much food.

Overall my experience was very good. There were a few issues: we were seated far away from the kitchen, and sometimes the meat would run out by the time the server was in our area; the food list that detailed ingredients for allergy issues wasn't 100% accurate and the server had to inform me of dairy ingredients not listed; the chicken legs tended to get overcooked because of the hot skewers.
I would go to this restaurant again for a special occasion. Free birthday desserts was a nice extra. All wait staff were amazing and very experienced.
Happy hour in the bar was fun - beautiful, more intimate tables; very good food and drink selections.
