What a horrible experience. I made a 530 reservation for 3, two adults and a toddler We sat down and were greeted nicely. They put bread, bananas and potatoes on the table. I asked for a wine list and they brought it over. I ordered a bottle and got up for the salad bar. The salad bar looked as if things were old and been there for a while. The cheese was hard ect. I got back to the table and the waitress came back and told me they were out of the wine I ordered, so I picked another bottle, and began to eat. I finished half my plate and the waitress came back and told me they were out of that bottle as well, so I ordered another. By the time the bottle finally got there, I was ready to eat the meat, but the meat never came. Every ten minutes someone would give us something. But the majority of the night I sat there with an empty plate. The wine came at least, so I had that. A nice waitress noticed we were sitting with no service so she tried her best to help. She even brought the manager over. After about an hour and 15 minutes I told my wife let's get out of this place. So I paid over $200 for a bottle of wine, a sorry salad bar, and a few pieces of beef that sucked. The manager didn't even care, no wonder the place was so bad. Lead by example and ur example was pitiful just like ur restaurant.

We come in often. We like your restaurant. Last night was actually quite compared to when we usually go.
One of us ordered vodka w/cranberry. It came back seltzer water and cranberry. No big deal, things happen. We asked to send it back for the correct one and our server said she couldn’t bring it back. Kinda a principle thing. Why not? It wasn’t right. We ordered at least 6 more cocktails. We weren’t trying to cheap out.
So we paid for it anyway.
We were sitting towards the back of the restaurant so the servers didn’t come back often. Only occasionally. We spent a lot of time waiting for the meat.
Several times we asked out server to send the guys out.
The meat servers were all very polite.
I know the pandemic has hurt the restaurant business more than most but it definitely was not your standard.
We still ordered after dinner cocktails and dessert
We will be coming back soon anyway

To preface, I have been to Brazilian restaurants like this but they are more casual dining. So, I expected a more elevated experience here in terms of food quality and customer service but it fell short. For one, while the restaurant is spacious, they cram in too many tables close to one another. Secondly, they start out with the cheaper cuts of meat such as bacon wrapped chicken. I didn't get to try the rib eye until the end and that was because I requested it, on that note, a lot of the red meats were fatty. The buffet selection wasn't expansive either: mostly salads, different veggies and fruits, cheeses, salami, potato and chicken salad And 1 white rice with black bean sauce. Keep in mind, at the casual Brazilian restaurants I've been to, they tend to have a variety of rice dishes, pasta dishes and even various meats stewed in sauces. Also the wait staff were nice but nothing special. However the manager was walking around checking on people which was nice. Overall, the food is good but nothing you can't get at a casual Brazilian restaurant. Wouldn't go out of my way to come back.

Most likely would not attend again exactly at dinner opening time. Seemed like market table items were not as fresh as they usually are in previous experiences. Not all items were placed on the table until more than an hour after opening. During the meal, staff rarely asked what cooking temperature I preferred on my meat. Lots of cuts were more on the well done side when I typically go for medium/medium rare. I have also dined at Fogo back in PA for many special occasions and always received a free dessert. Last night, I was never asked if we were celebrating a special occasion, which normally they always ask so that was odd to me. I showed the waitress my birthday coupon which I thought would also imply we were here for my birthday but still no asking. We decided to order dessert, which was great but we still got charged! I am not sure if I would go to this location again, especially since the full experience price is more than the full experience price back in PA.

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.
