Food was delicious! We enjoyed the many meat options that float around for table service as well as the bread.

We've been to Fogo de Chao many times but this location seems to be a bit skimpy with their meats. There were several times when we sat around waiting and waiting and waiting for someone to bring out some meats. The restaurant was not that busy and they had plenty of servers but did not want to accommodate customers. Not sure what happened but we had to ask for them to bring out some meats for everyone. What a pity!!!! Poor management?

Enjoyed a lovely dinner to celebrate our 6 year dating anniversary. Food was wonderful and service was attentive. Parking in the area is limited but they do have valet.

The service team was excellent, as usual. On this occasion, we were primarily taken care of by Miguel, who really provided superb service.
Thank you so much.

On Wednesday February 19th, 2020, we had a magnificent and extraordinary dining experience and 60th Birthday Celebration for our friend Matt at the Fogo De Chao-Boston-MA restaurant.

When I arrived at the restaurant, I was greeted by our hostess Jessica, who addressed me by my full name. I was so impressed by her warm welcome and hospitality which made me feel like she knew me and that I was family.

Jessica presented our group with the best table in the restaurant complete with a breathtaking and gorgeous view of downtown Boston!

Jessica and her team of servers worked diligently throughout the evening and provided us with outstanding customer service along with a meal that was excellent, delicious, and grilled to perfection!

To top it off, Jessica surprised us with a creative, wonderful, and yummy cake and ice cream dessert for Matt’s Birthday!

We were treated like royalty and would like to send our sincerest thank you to Jessica and her team for going all out to make our time and stay at the Fogo De Chao-Boston-MA restaurant enjoyable, memorable, and special!

Food is always great but the service is lacking. We got inundated with meat options when we first sat but when we decided to take a break, it stopped coming. We waited a while and even asked but still did not get any grill service after that. We were also supposed to get valentines coupons for each couple (we were 3 couples) but did not get any. They will apparently mail them to us, which resulted from me calling the restaurant and explaining the situation. We also had some deals emailed to us that we tried to ask about when paying and were rudely told that we should have asked before sitting down, which we did not know and even so did not need to be scolded for just because we asked. Overall, bad service, very busy, great food though.

Great service and unreal story. Five $20 bills dropped out of my pocket during dinner. I didn’t realize I had lost the money until after we left the restaurant. I called about 20 minutes after we left to ask if anyone had turned in money. Unfortunately nobody had. About 30 minutes later my phone rang and they told me the money was found by a restaurant employee.

So many great people in this world.

Great end to a great night.

Busy valentine's day dinner. I've had a better experience here. 2 of the meats were severely overcooked and dry (parm crusted pork was 1, cant remember the other). The food on the bar was great, it looked and tastes fresh. The cocktails were good as well. We didnt require much but felt I shouldn't have to ask for more sides when ours was gone. We will give it another shot soon and use the b1g1 coupon they handed to diners over this weekend.

They filled the floor with tables to maximize profit on Valentine's Day. It created what I am sure was fire code violation. We finally got the lamb chops to come our way and they were overcooked. Nice for a visit, but they did little to entice us to return

I came with my sister and boyfriend and we all loved the meal! When our cards were flipped to green, we got meat almost immediately. The service was great and the food was delicious. We’re definitely coming back!

The lunch menu must be the best value for excellent food in Boston. They have a magnificent, help yourself buffet and an endless supply of grilled meats. I usually select the buffet plus one meat, fantastic value

This was just an okay experience. The food was good but not great. The meat was just okay and much of it was overcooked. We liked the bacon wrapped chicken the best but the picanha, sirloin, filet mignon were not very flavorful. the sides buffet was fine. Many choices and it was okay but nothing memorable. the dessert - tres leches cake- was way too sweet and the dulce de leche sauce on top was too much. The service was prompt. It feels like a hotel restaurant. For the price, it was not worth it.

Service was terrible, wanted to order a simple ginger ale, the staff proceeded to explain they had ginger in a can ... they had no idea what ginger ale was! Then they charged us for bottle water at 7.50 each ...won’t be back

This was the first time I had been here for their lunch option. We decided to upgrade and have 1 meat option per person. It was MORE than enough food for a lunch during the work day. The service was excellent as always. The food was top notch. I’ll definitely be creating excuses in the future to return for lunch!

Service was bad and the price was way too expensive for the food served. We did not even receive what we asked for and we were charged as if we were. Great environment but overpriced, at least my experience.

This restaurant did not quite measure up to other Brazilian steak house experiences. The service was not good. We had to ask for another glass of water. We had to ask to order wine. Dirty plates were not removed so we went to the salad bar to get clean ones. Part of our group jumped right in to having meat served, and that was done promptly and repeatedly. When the rest of us were ready for meat, the servers were not exactly prompt. Maybe servers were out sick. The salad bar was lovely, but not spectacular like others I've encountered. It's a nice restaurant, don't get me wrong, but the service marred the experience. I will not be in a hurry to return.

When my family in town this has always been one of our favorite places to eat. No complaints about the food still, but service was rather poor. Considering that place was almost empty by the time we came in waiting for water or mashed potatoes for extended periods of time just is not right. I thought you bill yourself as premium restaurant. Service in a need of major improvements.
