Absolutely awful. We had to flag down someone after about 20 minutes to order cocktails. 30 minutes later cocktails finally arrived. Waited another 25 minutes and still no food despite asking no less than 4 servers to have the meat servers come to our table. We finally left to heat up leftovers at home. Worst restaurant experience ever. Will never go back! Ruined my husband’s birthday!

Service at Fogo is always amazing attentive, food quality exceptional and festively served and always very tasty, the choices are seemingly endless and satisfying. Wine & drinks that we had were all on the mark and a good value. We've found that being seated by 6 PM helped a lot since once it gets into peak dinner time the noise gets high and conversations for a group can be a challenge. Would of course use any excuse to go to Fogo.

After looking at our options, we opted to eat at 2pm on Sunday for "dinner" to take advantage of the restaurant month offer and not be too stuffed to sleep at night. Unfortunately, we may have been at one of the last tables to be seated for the section we were in. Meats did not make many rounds and there were instances where we were waiting for them to come around. Not that we needed to be checked on frequently, but our waitress never came around to see how we were doing and we had to get her attention to order a soda and ask for the check. Maybe we just came at an odd time, but maybe it's because we were getting the cheaper offer.

We love Fogo de Chao generally, but the Boston experience was very much below expectations. The service was quite bad and the quality of the food below Fogo’s standard.
We have been as a family many many times in Baltimore, Washington DC, Miami and Las Vegas and always loved it.
The Boston location needs improvements.

We knew about the restaurant as we ate at the D.C. site. It was everything we expected. Lots of meat that was delicious and well prepared.
The service is great as they work as a team. We never had to wait for a server, and they were all quite gracious.

Food was nice but pretty expensive for the ambiance. Although there is a menu, the staff led us for the fixed menu which we were not able to understand and differentiate from the regular menu. Staff was very friendly.

The food never disappoints. It really is worth it to just get the "salad bar," but how can one say no to the amazingly flavorful meats? Personally, I had the sea bass this time. Not as impressive as the meat options would have been. The tres leches dessert was a huge hit. Everyone left dinner quite happy, including the teen.

Where to start. The food was a good choice but we were overcharged and when we brought it up to the manager she said she had made the charges void and then had us pay another price, but when we got our credit card bill she had not made our first payment void but had ended up charging double. This has been a pain to get our credit card company to figure out. What a pain.

Food and service were good. My problem came with the settling off the bill. I had the email that designated me for a $30.00 discount. The waiter cam back an said that it was expired. When I checked the email again, it reads the $30.00 promotion was extended through June 30th, 2019. It would be nice to get that rebated back to me in some way shaper or form. Obviously, the wait staff was made aware of the extension. I have my dinner receipt form Sunday afternoon and I still have the promo email in my inbox showing the extension. Hopefully, Fago de Chao could find a way in rebating me the $30.00 or the form of a future gift card would be nice. It was the primary reasons for dinning there this past Sunday and is quite discouraging to get this discount applied to my dining check!! Otherwise, it will be my last time dining there!!

Do not book your table after 8pm. Your meet servers will stop coming to your table after just a half an hour since your seating. Not worth ordering your $59 Brazilian meet experience because you will not be served after 9pm. Waiter disappeared with our wine order. Never came back. Other waiters were busy chatting with each other rather then seeing customers. We went to the same place in Philadelphia a few months ago. Incomparable!!!! Food is great but service is very poor in Boston.

Fogo de Chao always guarantees that you go home full and happy with your meal. I always have a good experience once I'm seated, although the hostess is always slow to get our table ready even with a reservation. But once at our table, it's always a good time.

The specialty alcoholic drinks were less than remarkable. The Bloody Mary was thin and pale. Looked like watermelon juice.

Did not appreciate a dinner only menu. Have had better choices during the week. Would not go back on a weekend again.

Excellent place for special occasion. Go hungry! The salad bar is outstanding and that alone can be your (excellent and filling) meal. The meat selection brought to the table is very good depending on the cut offered. Lamb was overcooked unfortunately. Attentive service. Will go again.

I've been to a couple Fogo de Chão locations and Boston is unfortunately the most disappointing. Today's lunch hit a low even accounting for that. No meat service for over half an hour, despite asking the gaucho, meat was way undercooked, never cleared plates... I've been here 4-5 times, just because I like the concept, but I think this was definitely the last time. Do yourself a favor and go to one of the other meat places in the area and go to a Fogo location in another city.

All of the meats were too heavily salted. The salad bar was plentiful and beautiful but many items had no flavor; ie the broccoli, prosciutto and the tomatoes and mozzarella. I enjoyed the side dishes served at the table. The fried bananas were delicious. The service was very good. We just were not Wowed by the food.
