Meat variety was rather small. Frequency of the staff coming with meat was very low. Servers rarely came over to check on us. We’ve been wanting to order another bottle of wine for about 20 min. It’s clear they were understaffed, which I understand, but our experience was unpleasant overall on this visit. And the meat was not that good. The lamb especially. It had a strong smell and taste of lamb, which is a turnoff. Place became very touristic and lost its quality.

We are big fans of Fogo de chao ( my husband is brazilian) and we’ve gone many times in Brazil as well as in Atlanta where we live. This Boston location is disappointing all around - the meat was not the usual Fogo standard. The service was poor - no ownership. The atmosphere is dated and dull, the salad bar a lot less impressive than what we were expecting. The cheese bread was cold as was another side dish. The drinks took a long time to arrive - half the drink order never arrived.

Maybe my opinion was influenced by the greatness of Texas de Brazil, but….The Churrasco experience was not great. The meats were tough and dry. Maybe it was a Monday night thing, but I would never go again. They can around often with meat offerings, but after trying once, you would never want again. Go buy yourself a nice steak at Ruth Chris’ for way less money

Didn’t have all of cuts listed in menu (Costello and bacon wrapped anything). We had to repeatedly ask for lamb before getting enough to serve our table. Pork ribs came only once and were insufficient for the entire table of 6. Otherwise service was good. Food quality and taste was excellent, especially cheese bread and beef cuts.

It was awful! Sat late, more expensive, didn’t receive everything promised for the “whole experience” . Never saw filet and other various meats. We asked repeatedly for items promised to the table and got them at the END of our meal. Got drinks wrong and then was over charged for drinks we never received. Shortage on supply and help! Don’t go… over priced and over crowded and they can’t meet supply and demand and it is way too expensive at $60 plus a head. Sad we use to love it here!

This place is extremely loud/busy/hectic. The food wasn't bad but a lot of the meat we received was fatty. One of us ordered the salmon instead of doing the "experience" w/tableside meat service and it was way overcooked and dry. The waitstaff was very nice but one of us never received the drink we ordered. Then there is the amount of food that this place wastes that we even spoke to a manager about it as we couldn't believe it.
We will never go back there or to any Fogo de Chao. More of a personal/moral preference than anything else.

All of the food at Fogo de Chao was delicious (how could it not be?)

If you have not been here, do not eat too much when you start your meal with the extravagant selection at The Market buffet with picks from your typical salad offerings to tasty dried salamis to hot peppers to smoked salmon to papaya and more. Before the main event, the waiter will also bring you the daintiest popovers, delicious mashed potatoes, corn rectangles (you can't eat just one!) and caramelized bananas (can I take those to go??? please???)... but remember you have to save room for all the meat on a stick.

Our favorite cut of deliciousness for this trip (to my surprise) was the parmesan pork (from past visits, it is usually something covered in bacon or one of the sirloin cuts), but for this beast I had to have seconds... maybe it was the cheese. The chicken drumsticks (did I taste soy?) were also quite noteworthy and insanely plump (mutant chickens?)

Thank you to all of the staff who made this a wonderful birthday experience for my mother (I put a note in the reservation). They were very attentive and when noticing her dismay, made sure her favorite creature (lamb chops), appeared! For the finale, after insisting she try the delicious cheese & honey bread, they surprised her by decorating her dessert with a Happy Birthday.

If you are looking for an over the top, all you can eat, meat-a-thon (not a good place for vegetarians), with top notch staff, and a classy atmosphere (the silverware weighs at least 2,000 pounds), stop by Fogo de Chao.

Too pricy for the food that we got. We paid $254 for the two of. I got one drink and we both got desert. For a buffer of only three meat it is not worth it. It was only steak, bacon wrap chicken and sausage. I wouldn’t recommend this place. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was really nice. So I gave them that. But they need to lower their price. Or add more variety.

Honestly, really crowded and hard to get served. Often times the meat people would miss our table or not come into our room. The salad bar, it was pretty empty/sparse and they weren’t in a rush to replenish. We had to ask for assistance! Honestly. Not good. Phillys was a 5/5, this 2/5 for sure.

I've been taking my kids to better restaurants and this was their first trip to a Brazilian Steakhouse. It was the perfect meal for them. The salad bar is fresh and well prepared food that work for all ages and palates. The meat is perfectly cooked and well circulated so you're not waiting around. We were dressed casually and it wasn't at all an issue although this was weekend lunch.

We decided to go for dessert and it did not disappoint. The flan and lava cake were as perfect as I would have ever imagined.

If you're looking for a social dining experience in a quiet and refined setting with amazing food I'd recommend visiting here. If you need to walk some of it off after you're done the botanical gardens are right across so you'll have a great way to remember a wonderful dining experience.

My experience here was alright. It was my first time and I was really looking forward to trying the filet, lamb, and ribs. Neither made it to my table. The only people that came to my table were the same 3 meats (garlic steak, chicken, and sirloin). It seemed like they only wanted my table to have the cheapest cuts. Buffet was good however.

I'm glad to see Fogo de Chao back to its crowded self. It's a welcome sight. Service is always terrific. The one issue that I have when it's crowded is that the variety of food doesn't always make its way around the dining room. We never saw a couple of items, until a manager asked how everything was, and we mentioned something. Those options came out shortly thereafter. I do wish they'd put the candied bacon back out with the salad bar. It was brought to us when we asked, but it just seems easier to have out already. We always view this place as a special occasion place, and overall it's lived up to its billing.
