Excellent food and service. The staff was very attentive. In fact the manager visited our table to check in and confirm we were happy diners.

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.

We have been to restaurants from this chain in 5 US locations, and each one has been very, very good. At our table, three had the full meal, and one (me) just had the Market Table. Overall, this continues to be the best restaurant of this style at which we have ever eaten. While I sometimes do enjoy the meat, too, the Market Table is what a salad bar wants to grow up to be. The wait staff in general were delightful, as were the front desk staff.

Thank you all for your courtesy, your kindness to our friend who needed a walker, and your great good humor. Of course we’ll be back. :-) Or back to the ones in San Antonio, Chicago, Kansas City, or Baltimore, too!

It’s a nice place in a fancy area but not worth the price for our family. It’s was well over $100 per person.

My husband is originally from Rio de Janiero. We have been to many a Brazil restaurant here in the states but this by far was the worst. Service was non unless you complained to a manager. The meat had no garlic no salt and no flavor. When we asked 4x in a hour for some fried Yucca, we got 4 pieces that were still frozen in the middle. The mashed potatoes were like soup and the lettuce in the salad were wilted. We asked for lime for our sodas and never got them. Would not recommend.

Our party of four enjoyed Fogo de Chao for another birthday celebration at lunchtime. Fogo has been our favorite destination for the past two years. Service is attentive. The salad bar is fresh and creative, and the meat is delicious. Love the sides of bananas, mashed potatoes and hot cheese with honey glaze brought to the table.
