The food was good, but a bit on the salty side. Their brunch is smaller than before, so don't expect soup or omelets.

Another phenomenal experience at Fogo Chicago. Took a friend for his birthday and it was amazing. The food is always fantastic. They have this new shredded beef the Gauchos bring by an it is mouthwatering amazing. Our server Carlitos was friendly, engaging and added so much personality to the evening. Thank you Carlitos and Fogo for creating memorable evenings.

It was a magical experience, the staff treated my like royalty. They made my birthday, a night to remember. In specific, I want to say thank you to Carlos my server, who did a fantastic job and Edgar and management, who went above and beyond to make my experience unforgettable.

I can’t wait to go back and tell all of my friends about Fogo de Chao!

My husband and I went on Easter Sunday for our anniversary. It was clean, well organized, and the service was superb. The meat was hot, fresh, and the lamb was the most delicious. They even gave us a dessert - creme brûlée. This is one of our favorite places and have been loyal customers for almost 5 years - we will be back!

Some to most of the beef meat was either burnt, fatty, or bleeding. Salad bar was good but to many hands touching the Salad bar at the same time. Overall ok for first experience but will not go back.

We came to Fogo for Easter with our children and immediately regretted it. We were placed in a back room table far away from everyone and basically forgotten. We waited over 15 min for someone to come and greet us. We had to ask for plates. We had to ask for the items they bring to the table that are included with the meal (mashed potatoes, etc) Then, we literally only were offered chicken legs at least 5 times. When the server came by we informed them that we had been waiting for more options and nothing happened. We spent over 20 min waiting for additional meat options to come to our table and they would literally walk and stop at every table except ours. By far the worst experience at Fogo and we will not be back ever. You would think customer service would improve as restaurants open up, unfortunately Fogo didn’t get the memo.

The food was excellent and the servers were super nice. On the downside, since we were in a side room, the servers with the meat selections did not come super often. Also, the biggest disappointment was that our party of 7 could not be seated together and we were not informed of that until we were already at the restaurant. Since it was Easter, it’s not like we could go somewhere else. So, it wasn’t the best that’s whole party of 7 couldn’t enjoy the special day together

The food is simply delectable. Meat just perfect. Great service. The front desk people are friendly. They reminded me of the Covid 19 mandate.To wear mask the moment I am walking around.

It was a busy night and the servers weren’t as attentive. However, we do understand that staffing levels are lower due to Covid. In any case, it just wasn’t as enjoyable as it used to be, especially if the service just isn’t sufficient.

Happy to be back after COVID. Tables are spaced out 6 feet apart and there are hand sanitizer stations when entering. Salad bar hasn’t changed & endless meat service was amazing. Can’t wait to come back soon with the family.

I am thankful to be back to a "normal" business meeting at my favorite place. Fogo staff always exceed my expectations. Lunch environment is quite enough to have my meetings. I have been missing them for a whole year, and I couldn't wait any longer to have their tasty meats and salad bar. Because of Covid19 now going to the salad bar is little bit different but still enjoyable since one of their staff pick the items for you. And lets not forget dessert, always keep space for their delicious dessert menu.
