Seasoned with rock salt and fire-roasted to tender.
Alot of the meats were cold upon arriving to the table. Assuming this is due to the new guidelines around Covid-19 and not being allowed to carve table side. But need to do a better job getting meats out hot. Very disappointed in the over all food service around the tableside meats.
James, this should never be the case, as all of your cuts should be hot and fresh. We're sorry to have disappointed you and we hope you award us a second chance in the future.
Went there all the meats they brought out were over cooked a lot and were Bailey edible I was very unimpressed
Impressing every guest is our mission, as we never want you to be left underwhelmed. Please visit us again, as we are sure we can earn your complete satisfaction.
I think they lost their touch, food was nothing special but they still charge their premium price. Hopefully they will hire the old staff that this place great. Can’t blame poor service and food on covid.
We're sorry to hear you feel such a way, as we can assure you, our team has not lost their touch. Please visit us in the future, as we'd love to make your visit memorable.
Really enjoyed our date to Fogo! The caipirinha server was very nice and our server was fantastic. Will be back again in the future.
Food and service always excellent. Getting used to Covid process, though miss the days of meats being carved at the table. Restaurant was pretty empty. Hoping that all of this ends soon. It's more fun to patronize when restaurant is crowded. Feels more energetic. Until then will continue to patronize on a periodic basis.
Due to the pandemic they made our side plates, it was nice but I still wish I could make my own. There was other changes they had to make of course but it’s understandable. There was no mashed potatoes served new years eve night that is usually served with the entrees which was disappointing so I only had the choice of rice and beans. Service was good however. Mixed Drinks were not strong I could not taste the alcohol in them at all only juice. Ambience was good as usual. Valet parking was still up and running and very fast and convenient.
Great place especially during pandemic. The staff made you feel welcome! Especially Camilo the bartender (cart).
Food was amazing and kids loved the lava cake.
Fantastic service, and delicious food! Thanks
We had reservations for my fiancé’s 36th birthday. Everything was amazing from the from the food to the customer service. We will definitely be back soon.
Great and safe beginning to end.
It is not inexpensive but worth the price. The churrasco with chimichurri and vinaigrette and the caipirinhas are excellent.
A disappointing end to many years at this restaurant.
We are troubled to hear this, as we never want you to leave unsatisfied. When you are ready to award us a second chance, please visit us again.
Tables are too close to each other. Someone sneezed at our direction and we felt so disgusted, also scared since it’s still coronavirus time. Not going back there.
We're sorry to hear this, as you should never feel uncomfortable when dining here. Your safety is of the utmost importance, so please allow us the chance to show this to you.
I would not recommend, except you are not hungry..
Emmanuel, this is saddening to hear, as we love to earn our guest's recommendations. Thank you for your feedback.
The atmosphere is very different under COVID. A server will bring salad bar items into your plate. You pick which meat choices a d they bring small, precut portions to you. It’s still all you can eat, food quality seems the same as before. But the whole feel is very different and less special.
Meat is not good. Food doesn’t taste as good. Paid 90$/ person for a not good food. Doesn’t worth the money.
We always want to be worth a visit, so we're disappointed to hear we fell short. It is our hope that you visit us in the future, as we're sure we can make this right.
We love Fogo. The service and staff are always wonderful. They are really trying hard to make the best out of the covid situation and restrictions. We’ve spent more than a handful of holiday meals here. The tables felt a little cramped this time, which I was surprised by. The food was great. Will return again.
Despite the recent reviews I saw on google, the food was great. Everything at the salad bar was great, I think my favorite was the chickpea salad. What I was disappointed about is though, after maybe 4-5 times they weren’t stopping by our table for the meat service. It wasn’t like there weren’t enough servers, they just kept walking by us without asking if we wanted some. I was waiting for about 20 minutes without anything to eat before I decided to go back to the salad bar. Servers and bussers kept asking if we were finished with our food because our plates were empty for so long. It was bit disappointing but the food itself was very nice!
We're sorry to hear that our service wasn't what you expected it to be. Our team hopes that our delicious meals are enough to earn us another visit in the future.
I always feel rushed by the staff, it seems like they don’t want to be there. The steak portions were definitely smaller of what we used to. When we first arrived there was a congregation of staff members at the front desk (not safe at this covid crisis) the. We preceded to be seated at a table away from the beautiful view of the window, they said that section was closed. They handed out a piece of paper to be filled out by us we had to specify what kind of meats we wanted, it was pointless because they brought the opposite of what we wanted. We had a bacon allergy and that they brought us chicken wrapped in bacon. More than once. During lunch they kept offering some grilled pineapple that we didn’t want it at all. The picahna was burnt on the outside and cut very very thin and too much fat. Overall experience was disappointing, our side dishes were cold and never refreshed or served hot. I don’t think we’ll be back again
Phenomenal meal and service. Adapted well to covid rules.
This restaurant was really good! I would just say that I feel like the restaurant did not do good with COVID! tables were too close and there were so many people
Had a party of 8. Food was delicious but service slowed down after only a few plates of food. Overall still a good experience
Jordan, our service should never slow down when it comes to serving, so we apologize for falling short. We hope you visit us in the future.
Very good, tasty food, nice atmoshere, but also very expensive.
Staff was informative and attentive
Fogo is always a great place for meat lovers, I’ve always enjoyed my visit to other locations and now this one as well. I wish their cuts were more tender, as it’s usually my experience, I do however understand that we are under a pandemic and it is challenging to procure ingredients with the still-in-business purveyors and that represents a though situation for everybody involved, nevertheless the staff managed to more than make up for that little detail, thank you
Good concept, maybe better value without a pandemic. Tables are quite close, salad bar is not accessible without waiter assistance. Meats do come quite regularly but you want to be careful not to say yes to all of them, otherwise you get full quickly.
We know the pandemic has made our experience a bit different however, we are trying our best to continue to deliver wonderful experiences. We hope you visit us again, as we know we can earn your 5-stars.
The experience has deteriorated significantly from the last time I went to dine there. It doesn’t warrant the $60 per person price tag. Out dated and the salad bar was reduced to greens and some cheese with very limited options. Very disappointed.
We never want to hear that our experiences have deteriorated, so lease know, this is concerning. We'd like to invite you back, as our team would love the chance to regain your satisfaction.
Service was good, though adjusted given the pandemic, guests are still seated too close to each other.
Good meat selection but mostly medium rare and even well done. Salad selection is really good.
They gave us desserts for the anniversary & birthday we were celebrating - very nice gesture! Much appreciated!
Food shmacks servers awesome social distancing prime
Service was perfect, and the COVID-19 safety precautions were Both effective and non-disruptive to our dining experience.
This was our second visit to Fogo de Chao and the food was excellent once again! Waitstaff were kind and very attentive.
Birthday date. Nice time
Covid procedures for Buffet were very well done. Might even consider keeping the look and ask, but server touches model going forward. I did miss the table-side carvings and green/red cards. Just not the same taking pre-sliced meat from a plate. Servers were very attentive, and caring.
I Am always happy with my experience!! Never disappointed!! Thank you
Awesome experiance! My recommendation is to skip lunch and bring your appetite to Fogo de Chao and you wont be disappointed!
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.
We appreciate you sharing the details of your experience, as we always want to know how our guest's visits were. We look forward to serving you in the future, as we are sure we can earn your complete satisfaction.
The restaurant is only worth it if you are going to stuff yourself.
We always want to our guests to leave satisfied, so we're disappointed to hear we fell short. Our team hopes this doesn't keep you from visiting us in the future.
excellent service, excellent food, over all a great choice !
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.
