So we are in a pandemic, and I kept this in mind. we were seated at the back of the restaurant, it was nice and quite.
Our server was very nice, unfortunately we couldnt understand a word she was saying, with or without a mask. Her entire focus for the first 10 minutes was to upsell, even after we politely responded no. She delivered cheese rolls with no plates, utensils or napkins.. We had to ask.

We then found out they work in teams, her teammate was Joey Wow, that's right couldn't make that up. He was great and took over from there. He was spot on with everything.

As for the food, the market buffet offered a nice variety. Now for the meats, what Fogo is known for. They offer 13 different meats, we were offered the following;
cheese 2x, parmesan pork 2x, tenderloin 2x, pork sausage 1x, lamb roast 2x, lamb rib 2x, sirloin 2x and chix wrap in bacon 1x. No beef ribs, pork ribs, rib eye, no regular chicken or picahna. When they arrived to the table there were only small slices of meat and very few of them, as they couldnt even serve everyone at the table. What was happening is they started at the front of the room and worked their way back, which is fine, however those of us sitting in the back got the scraps. I called over a floor manager and he quickly corrected the issue.

Overall we enjoyed the food and the service, its quite clear that covid has changed the way everyone has to operate. We will be back, just wanted to share our experience.

Our waiter Joe-Wow was absolutely amazing. I have never been happier with a server here. My girlfriend and I frequent here often and we came for a friends birthday. I couldn’t have asked for a better waiter for the first time. He was friendly, personable, and very funny. I will specifically be coming back sooner than planned just to visit him.

I don't know if I've had a worse experience at a restaurant in the last 10 years. We foolishly came here for our first wedding anniversary and got ripped off for $200 for a couple of pieces of overcooked, cold beef. The waiters kept coming around and around with their cold, well-done steak and it literally took 35 minutes to fulfill our request for medium rare filet mignon, which came in the form of 2 tiny slices each. The waitress, Bruna, spent the entire evening trying to up-sell us to the seafood tower, the shrimp cocktail, anything to add to our bill instead of inform us of what was already included in the $60/person "experience" we had signed up for. Fogo de Chao should be ASHAMED of themselves for the pathetic, cold, overcooked offering they call dinner, the prices they charge, and the impersonal and pathetic experience they offer their customers. I'm literally at a loss at how they are even still in business. This is one restaurant I really wish had not survived the pandemic because they do not deserve whatever following they have. Having spent $200 on nothing, here's a photo of them misspelling an anniversary greeting as "Happy Firth Anniversary." Thanks so much for ruining our day!

The quality of food was very poor. Service was slow. All out meats came cold to the tabke. Maybe it’s due to Covid-19 new setup but we were very disappointed and will not return for a long time.

Nice job re-adjusting to these circumstances. Each diner going up to the buffet was given wait staff to walk around and serve them. The overall service was very good and the food was as good as ever, including the drinks. I hope they can make it through this time. They are one of our favorite places in Boston.

Went because it was dine out week have been there for the full menu before. I find that the alcohol prices are very high the quality of the food is excellent for the dine out menu it was supposed to include desert and the key lime pie was very very small and skimpy. And my four favorite cuts of meat or Not Included and the special but the food was very good I thought they did a great job with the buffet and handling it but the room that I was in the tables were way too close together they were not 6 feet apart that made me very afraid

For being my first time I will say my friends & I are very pleased at the service we received. The food was delicious and the drinks were fantastic 😉. We are pleased that this establishment followed Covid guidelines, someone to serve us every step of the way. To have a assortment of foods to choose from was amazing, even on the Dine Out Boston menu we had the full experience. Thank you for great customer service
