Everything was cooked perfectly and the only problem is neither of us could eat enough to get our money's worth. Gabby was an excellent server as was each and every person that came to our table. Make sure you reserve a table.

By the time said beverage was delivered, we were already halfway through our meal. The exotic accents off the servers and management added to the allure and charm of what should be a standard Fugo. However, it was very difficult to understand them, especially above the noise of a crowded afternoon. Tables so close that I could clearly hear the convo of the next table. Also, had to ask for one of our side dishes THREE times. It seems as if this particular Fugo is grossly disorganized. Called the day after to complain to the manager and was put on hold for 10 minutes. Hung up and called back and was then told the manager was in an "important meeting"......meaning, me, a customer, am not important. Whzat happened to the Fugo I once enjoyed across the country??

It was also our 1st time at the Bethsda location and was a bit disappointed at the fact that it was super crowded. Not enough room to move around especially because I had requested a table that was wheelchair accessible. The tables were stacked to close for comfort. We were seated in between a large party and a pillar and some customers had to get up and move there chairs so that we could pass. The waitress only came to check on us twice and then we had to call another waiter to get more coffee and have some plates removed from the table. The gauchos were very attentive to the green signs on the table and friendly. And again the food was great wish we had more time for the waffle and omelette bar.

Also the staff/Managers were very friendly. The waitress was good at first, but hen she went MIA. Food was way too salty, prices were very high! If you are going more for quantity vs quality this is the place for you. The area of the restaurant was also adorable. Reminded me a bit like historic Frederick or National Harbor. Not rushing back anytime soon, but again thanks to the staff for their efforts.

It was too crowded and the staff struggled to provide timely service as a consequence. The salad bar was not restocked in a timely manner, so we were unable to enjoy many of the foods that were supposed to be provided (no charcuterie or cheese). Many of the meats themselves were good, but not great. It was great to try the churrasco experience once, but I would not go back. I prefer to eat good meat at a restaurant where I can select an excellent cut and enjoy what I have ordered.

That’s why I made our reservation on April 8 - a month before Mother’s Day. That’s why I found the 40 minute wait for our table - and the ten minutes after we were seated when we couldn’t even get a server’s attention to get water for the table - unpleasant and unacceptable, even for a holiday. We’ve done special occasions at Fogo before - in DC and in different cities. We’ve done Mother’s Day in downtown DC, graduations in Minneapolis and Chicago, celebrations in New York City, and plenty of birthdays everywhere. We all know the attraction - you don’t have to wait to get food (great for children and elderly people), wide variety so everyone can find something they like, generally good quality of the food. A very good special occasion restaurant, particularly for multigenerational celebrations. Except yesterday. The 3 year old’s milk never appeared (nor did the booster seat.). We had to ask to get the polenta, bananas, and mashed potatoes - all of which arrived near the end of dinner. Just the fact that I had to flag someone down to get water for the table - 50 minutes after our 5:30 reservation - speaks to the general level of disorganization. Now I am very sympathetic to restaurants and to those who work in them coming out of the pandemic. And we tipped well, for a pretty lousy experience, although the food was fine as always. But we would not come back to this Rockville branch and would not recommend it.

We had to call out for people to bring us items or they would walk right by us. We did ask the mgr for help and got it for 30 seconds then forgotten again. I get it was busy for Mother’s Day but terrible place to spend $400 and have a terrible experience.

Then the server left our table and left the rest of us just hanging..bewildered.. Tough as rubber steaks.. Party of 6… one of whom was a PGA tour player in town from Australia to compete in the PGA Wells Fargo Gold Championship Championship. This was an Embarrassment for us that the experience was so poor after having talked up how good this chain was. Try and find a Texas de Brazil for a far far better Brazilian Steakhouses experience. Finished was Fogo for good.

But the compliments stop there. - Expect to wait quite long to be seated even if you have a reservation. - My order for a beer came 30 minutes after I ordered. When I reminded the server that I ordered a beer, they brought a second beer 2 minutes after the first, which I sent back. They charged me for both. - The tables are packed in the and noise level is extremely loud. If you want a romantic dinner - not here. - When you order the all inclusive meal for $59 each, servers bring all sorts of food to your table and you take as much as you want. But some items are not included in the price. We took a shrimp cocktail and were surprised with an extra $25 charge. - The food is excellent - delicious. But it's hard to stop and both of us left feeling sick from eating too much. One visit here is good. Quality food, poor service, TOO LOUD.

Our main server who gave us his card what does Guillermo Ulloa. He was the best part about this meal he gets 5 stars. He checked on us regularly. He made sure my drinks were full. He even asked what kind of meats we wanted…Even though we never got meatloaf like we wanted to. The problem with the meal was is the lack of gauchos coming around serving meat. I definitely don’t believe I got my moneys worth at almost $60 a person. I left hungry and not satisfied. I noticed it wasn’t just our table. It was most tables. Disappointed I really look forward to Brazilian steakhouse food and experience.

The open air style seating does not provide for a semi-private dining experience. The noise level can be a little distracting. The service was excellent. The server(s) were constantly checking whether we needed anything. Not only our primary server, but other servers as they passed our table. Overall, excellent experience, and would recommend.

They texted and I confirmed, they called that morning and I told them we were excited , get there and the young lady was bit rude, gave us the table for 6pp right next to the kitchen door, no place to put 2 kids high chairs and the most uncomfortable table, definitively not for 7 of us. Asked her for a different table and she started gossiping with other waitresses telling me it was not possible, manager showed up and gave us a table, we were happy!. Sat now and got no service for 20 min, no drinks, no nothing as everybody around us was being served. I finally complained and they said that is because our discs were in red. We did not even have waters!!!! I was so upset that the meat server made sure everybody came to our table (only meat serves) had to beg for the side dishes, drinks took over 20 minutes. Horrible experience!!! I wanted this to be a treat for my daughter and it was the opposite.
