We had high expectations for the restaurant. Unfortunately, we found it way over priced and the food was like eating at a low priced banquet. The service was friendly.

Food is always excellent. Fresh and well seasoned. Having been to many Fogo restaurants in other cities. I am least fond of Boston. Strange seating layout that always feels cramped. Service better in the other Fogos that I have been to.

I used to frequent this place before COVID and now that’s its fully back up and running, I returned only to be disappointed. All the meat was over cooked and grey. It was my daughter’s first time there and the waiter suggested a drink that she didn’t like. She took one sip and drank the water for the rest of the mea. I told the waiter she didn’t like it and they just shrugged their shoulders. I waited until the dinner service to get the pork chops. I asked my sever and multiple gauchos for the pork chop only to be told to ask someone else. In the end I was told they ran out. I went at 230 when the dinner service begins at 2pm. There is normally a manager or two walking around but I did not encounter one til after I paid the bill and asked for one on the way out.

I have been to Fogo a number of times- mostly in Boston, but also in other cities. I took a friend for his "wedding dinner" and found myself disappointed. The selection of the salad bar was much smaller, the number and selection of meat that came through was very limited. I received one particular steak that was raw, not rare- but raw. I put it on my side plate- but it was inedible.

The wait staff was friendly.

I wish they have beef ribs circulating more often. Every time I come here asking for beef ribs I would have to wait a long time for it. Today we ask for beef ribs and waited 30 plus minutes and in the end we didn't wait anymore and left disappointed 😞

Always a good choice in Boston. Salad bar was a little underwhelming on this very busy Sat evening during college graduation season, but it didn't take away from the great steak, lamb and chicken. And the creme brulee!

Nice to see that experience is pretty close to pre-pandemic, with carving again done table side, and self-serving (with precaution) at the salad bar. Makes the experience that much better. Good food. Great service. Always a nice place to treat the family.

It’s been a pretty long time since my friends and I have dined together during this whole pandemic. My friend is getting married next week and we had never dined at Fogo de Chao before. From the salad bar to the fire roasted meats to the cocktails and service, everything was OUTSTANDING. The cheese bread rolls were super delicious as well as the plantains, salads, potato salad, picanha, caipirinha, and so on. My girlfriends and I had an awesome time. What made it super special were the staff. They were super duper attentive, friendly, on top of everything and made sure everyone had what they needed. I will absolutely return!

I had chosen this restaurant for my boyfriend's birthday dinner as I had seen MANY people going there along with the fact that my boyfriend's mother use to work in one of their restaurant located in Portugal. When I made the reservation I asked to be seated in a private location, when I got to the restaurant they brought me to a table which was located RIGHT at the door. Then asked for a more private table and got a table by the kitchen which was not private at all. That was my only problem, however, you can get the same exact thing at Brazilian Grill for $50 rather than $200. The staff were SUPER nice and helpful. Would definingly go back but for a more casual date rather than what I had originally planned.

The meat was blah, they kept bringing the same rare sirloin, the salad buffet was not impressive. They bring you mash potatoes, sweet plantains and some sort of cassava, the cassava was so hard and tasteless, the sweet plantains were old! A table of 3 and they brought us 2 tiny pieces, the mash potatoes was the only descent thing and they brought enough for one person, and they forgot to bring the cheese bread, i mentioned it to the waiter probably 30 minutes into our meal and she did apologized and brought us some. For $300 dollar tap the food was horrible!

Have been there many times before and to other locations. By far the worst experience.

Service - fair

Market table (salad bar) - missing a lot of usual higher end items. Salmon was present but on verge of spoiled.

Skewers - many usual items missing replaced with lower end items. Steak all seemed of lower quality. Filet Mignon was mostly fat. I didn’t even know that could happen. My piece of garlic sirloin couldn’t even be cut with the steak knife. Most items cooked to well done.

Went for mother’s day and had an overall awful experience. While there was one server that was exceptionally kind, our main waitress simply was not a good server. The guests that accompanied me told me the meat was very chewy and the rotation was poor (only served lamb once and mainly chicken + pork was brought out). I personally took the vegetarian dish (cauliflower steak) and it was nothing more than a large and slightly undercooked cauliflower with a little spice on top. While I am sure that the restaurant was extra busy because of the holiday, overall it was not an enjoyable experience. Side note, while this is not the fault of the restaurant it is extremely noisy and not a call or relaxing eating environment.

I had a 7:15 reservations and was on time but my table for 6 was given to a couple “by mistake”. After waiting 20 minutes for a new table we were placed in front of an event area that began halfway through our meal and then we’re told we could move to a different table across the restaurant. Our waitress did a fine job but management dropped the ball hard which was extremely disappointing because we were celebrating a birthday and we loved the food but most likely will never return to the Boston location after our night was ruined.
