Great place to eat,food is A+ but a little to salty on some meats,salad bar is top notch and I love the bacon. The price is definitely higher then most,but they send out a lot of discounts through email. It would of been a 5 all the way around but I feel like they slam you with food then you never see the waiters again. I'm usually there with atleast 4 or 5 people, so I would love to enjoy all the meat they bring while I enjoy the people I'm with. Instead it's almost like a meat eating marathon no time to chat....lol And if you don't pile up the meat on your plate then you'll never see it again. I understand that its busy on the weekends but you have to also worry about people enjoying themselves not just taking the money and NEXT!!!

I'd advise not to go to this place within an hour before closing. If you're going to spend all this money for sub par service and a sub par meal just because the employees are ready to go home and ready to get you out as soon as possible, then don't give customers the option to make a reservation so close to closing. It's unfair to customer experience. Most of my meat was medium well and under because there was no "well done" meats prepared. I felt that we didn't get our moneys worth when it came to the meat selections and felt like we just got whatever was left. It was the worst experience that we've had by far and I'm chalking it up to it being a late evening.

Horrible experience celebrating friends bday. Asked waitresses for wine menu, then asked if you have certain type of wine got a response I do not know then walked away. The amount of money spent no service.

Great value for the money. The salad bar is outstanding, and the variety of meat is well worth the cost of $39.

Great service and environment. The food is fresh and high quality. I just wish they offer parking for lunch since parking on weekend near that area is mission impossible. That would be my only complaint.

We love this restaurant. We took our niece/goddaughter here for her birthday. Everything was delicious and the special soft drinks they make were a nice surprise. As usual, the meats are all prepared perfectly and they are so tasty. The lamb chops and the rib-eye steaks are my favorites but everything is excellent. The service is always great. When I asked for rib-eye and it hadn’t come, they checked with me about it. They even brought my niece a piece of cake and wrote “happy 16th birthday”. Everyone is so nice and the food is so good. It is worth the price.

Slightly disappointing. I’m a regular at Fogo however recently they have resorted to frequent rounds of cheaper meats like top and bottom sirloin, pork, and chicken legs and will not bring any of the more expensive meats like filet mignon, lamb chops, rib eye or NY strip unless you ask for it. They created the best of Brazil cheaper version yet even if you’re willing to avoid that and pay the full $57 for a regular menu they will keep bringing the cheap meats 10x until you get full. We had to specifically ask for lamb chops, rib eye, and filet mignon every time. Multiple diners around us had voiced similar complaints. Bottom line - don’t charge full amount if you’re going to resort to cheaper meats! Will take a long break from Fogo...

I have been going to this restaurant over 4 years and every year it is worse. Quality has changed and prices have gone up considerably. Not sure it is worth the money anymore.

- Feijao very watery
- Filet Mignon passed by once and we had to asked for.
- Cheese Balls much more grease than before.
- salad was ok, but not great.
- farofa cold and only with bacon (nothing for vegetarians)
- Feijao no longer as an option for vegetarians

This is one of my family favorite places in Boston. If you like to eat, and you want to try number of different cuts, I can't think of the better place then this in Boston.

I was quite underwhelmed by Fogo De Chao. I think the experience is overrated and overpriced. On my opinion this a fancy overpriced buffet where you get a bunch of meat options constantly in your face interrupting your experience.

It was not a fine dining experience at all. The host seemed like she had not even looked at the reservation request. She just gave us a random table for 2. I had requested a table near the window. The food was ok but not that great for the amount charged. The salad bar was good. The servers were nice. It just felt like going to a fancy not your average Joe's. It was a special occasion but we did not enjoy our experience as much. will not be returning here

The atmosphere is very upscale, yet comfortable. The service was impeccable - we never went thirstier hungry during our 2 hour dining experience. Every meat presented had the cooked option we wanted (rare, medium, etc) so we all enjoyed everything even though we have different palettes. This was a real treat, and though it was expense, it was worth every dollar.

I had put in the reservation that it was my boyfriends birthday but they forgot i guess. which wouldn’t be a problem but the table next to us did get the birthday experience so it was kind of embarrassing since we were there to celebrate a birthday as well. the service was ok. i felt like no one really paid attention until we were toward the end of our dinner

We’ve been here dozens of times, but the night we went for my birthday was an off night. The food was great as usual, but the service was very off. We were not attended to often. My wife got served about 3 times as she had to wait as long as 30 minutes on her end of the table, along with her friend, who like their meat on the medium-well side. Our host/waiter wasn’t attentive. It took forever for anyone to come for our desert order or for our check.

However, the GM was fantastic. She made sure we were taken care of once she was given feedback.

Regardless, this will not deter us from coming back, again, and again, and again!

The food was really terrific, but the servers were not so great, and kept trying to push us out. At three or for time a waitress would grab a plate or glass and then ask "Are you done with this?" Most of them said it in a friendly manner, one did it quite rudely, and I replied sternly that I was not done.

I do like the decor - the salad bar and meat all were delicious. The noise level is pretty high, but (just) bearable. Mostly the hustle and bustle of the place, which one can't really do much about.

They also stuck us in a corner table when clearly other tables were available. In fact, one of our waitresses ( the good one) had a small argument with the hostess about it. I give her props for trying.

I would - and will - definitely go again.

Food was fantastic as always! Our main server made the experience slightly unpleasant though. A lemonade took over 10 minutes to come to the table and it was about 25 minutes before any sides were delivered. We checked with our server several times regarding the items and was told they were coming. We even asked someone bringing sides to another table and was told ours weren't ready yet. Also disappointed that the server didn't clear the crumbs off the table before serving dessert. The meat servers were terrific and promptly responded to food requests.

Complete mess with reservations. People that had 730 reservations were still waiting at 830. We had to wait 45 mins to be seated even though we had a reservation. Will most likely not come again as a result of this even though we did enjoy the food once we finally sat down.
