We felt rushed from the second we got there and it wasn't busy at all. We had five different waiters come to our table at a time. The food was good but there was no variety, the same kinds of meats kept coming out. It was way too expensive for the experience we had.

Great food! The food bar is fantastic and you could make a whole meal of just that. Add the meats and you will be more than sated. The papaya dessert was so good! And you can get just the food bar for $15 at lunchtime. Can’t beat it!

This is the first time I was disappointed with the service, had to keep waiting for the servers to come by with the meats! At one point they walked right by our table at least three times before someone stopped and asked if I’d like some picahna! Overall was very disappointed

Poor selection of meats. Very basic. The restaurant was freezing cold. Felt like they kept the door open during a -10 night. The service was very good and I appreciated the manager coming to our table to check on us. I wouldn't go back if I had the choice.

The guys annual holiday lunch, an events that has happened here for the past 5 years. The food is always great and the service impeccable. We did notice a slight change in the salad bar and skewers from previous years, slightly less offerings. They also offer different options for lunch, the full menu or a reduced menu. Don’t know why but we always opt for the full Monty.

This is a great choice if you like meat and can't decide what cut to order. Bring your appetite, but prepare to be overwhelmed by the choices.

It is an especially good restaurant if you are taking your hungry college student for a meal not prepared in a dining hall.

It's also a good choice for brunch.

We are very disappointed about the restaurant we went with you along time ago then we return back for birthday party. Overall there were only five different meat came and repeated all the time. our server was not friendly at all, he even didn’t want to recommend additional drinks that they couldn’t make war provide me a list of more than 2 tequila selection. I won’t go back and I will tell my friends is not worth for your money that you paid.

The service was excellent. Loved the quality of the meat. It was my daughter’s birthday and I had noted it on the reservation. I also mentioned it to the hostess when we arrived. I had expected that the restaurant would have acknowledged the birthday. Nothing was said. When I had done the same thing at another high end steak house, there was a single rose given to the birthday girl, a birthday card and a glass of champagne offered. I was surprised that nothing was done. Also, many other Brazilian steakhouses have a desert buffet. There was nothing here.

We were celebrating our son’s birthday. Food, service, atmosphere all very good. At the end, they surprised us with a molten chocolate cake with a candle & sang. We did not expect that! It was very thoughtful. The Market Table (buffet) was outstanding. The continuous selection of carved meats freshly sliced & served at our table were tasty and cooked very well. For small eaters (or non-meat eaters) the Market Table is perfectly satisfying. We would recommend and we would return to Fogo de Chao.

Overall okay but the full experience is expensive if you are not a big eater and there isn’t really many other options.
The service was fine but the sides arrived late.

We have been coming there for years and in fact had a very large celebration a few years ago because the food and service were always 5 star. The service still is BUT the food especially the meat is not. sadly another restaurant that has lost their way on quality.

The food is really good, especially the beef is of very high quality. However, the service of the waiter (not the server of meat) was poor. It was our first time visiting this restaurant, so we didn't know how the service usually goes. The waiter was talking so fast and so unclear that we couldn't understand even after she explained the rule. The plates supposed to be changed regularly, but we couldn't find our waiter when we needed her; after she finally took away the dirty plates, she needed an additional reminder from us to give us a new plate. A restaurant serving such quality food should pair with thoughtful service.

Great service and food! Salad bar had a good variety, however I wish there were more options for fruit. Also dessert isn’t included in the buffet portion and is a separate charge. Overall, beautiful space and exceptional dinner.

Enjoyed the great service as well as the food. The varied meats were all uniquely flavored and seasoned to perfection. Just enough vegetables at the buffet to create a well rounded healthy lunch. The candied bacon alone was worth the trip!

We were there on Christmas Day, it was pretty busy at 2pm. However, it had nice flow. The food was great, we enjoyed the leg of lamb, beef and some pork. Every cut was perfect. Service was attentive. We will be back.
