Still waited 20 minutes for a seat despite arriving on time for our reservation. It's a pretty busy restaurant so it is to be expected. Food was amazing and the server was very helpful for selecting wine.

Not happy with the quality of the meat. It was over priced. I had a much better experience at Texas de Brazil 2 nights before. Not sure if I will ever visit again.

We were at Fogo de Chao in San Diego, 2 years ago and we had a number of different kind of meat and we were were very good impressed .
Our experience in Chicago has been less positive.
They served us few kind of meat and always the same.
The Price was too high for what we ate.

I have to say that we were disappointed with this restaurant. We have been to similar restaurants in the UK and Las Vegas that were much better. There wasn't much choice in the meat, mainly beef with some chicken and the salad bar was very small. It was expensive for what we had and the restaurant looked like it had been put together at the last minute!

Fogo was not the same I remember from last year. A lot of changes inside exterior, but more importantly the food and overall experience has diminished. Our server did a great job, but this was not the typical family outing to Fogo where there is wide variety of brazilian meats (and other food), great atmosphere, and overall great eating experience. It was very low energy and not the usual selection of meats. Some of the meats were not even cooked as well. the only thing I could think is because it was Labor day maybe they planned for a low turnout . Either way, sharp contrast from when we went to Texas de Brazil a month ago. Texas de Brazil was amazing.

My family and I chose to dine at your location to celebrate my birthday. We arrived early and enjoyed the newly renovated bar, our reservation was for 715 but we were not seated until 730. We were starving and were looking forward to the warm delicious cheesy bread but we did not receive it right away so after 20 minutes we asked for some. We were told it was in the oven and would be out in 2 minutes. 10 minutes went by and still no bread was brought over but tables around us were receiving it. We stopped asking and finely received some. My husband asked for a specific cut of meat and it never arrived. One of the men that brings the meat began arguing with us over what he considered rare/raw. The lamb was pink, cold and definitely not cooked but he left it with us to consume anyways. The restaurant did offer dessert on the house to make up for the issues- a kind gesture that we did not expect.

The service was exceptional! The staff was friendly and accommodating. The salad bar was wonderful and of course the meat selections were exemplary.

The atmosphere was vibrant so it may not be the best place for a quiet evening.

Excellent service! Quality is on a whole new level! The staff is extremely courteous and helpful. Had a conversation with our server and told me he has been with the restaurant for 14 years, let's just say you don't stick around a job for that long if you dont enjoy it or at the very least get treated with respect.

Highly recommend this restaurant!

Delicious meal! Loved the feijoada bar and the non-stop meat. The staff was very friendly and accommodating (special mention to Alfredo and Mauricio) and made sure we got our favorite cuts of meat (picanha and fraldinha). I left just enough space for my favorite dessert, Creme de Papaya. I’ll surely return and highly recommend it. PS. I’m Brazilian and this is as close to home as it gets!

Just a little disappointed that the special of $39.00 that was for dinner did not include several prime meats. My guests came with me because of the prime meats as we have been to this restaurant on several occasions - lunch or dinner, special occasions birthday or even just get together with several people. Was looking forward to something that was not available and was not asked if we wanted to skip the $39.00 special go for the regular price for dinner.

For the price, there are other Brazilian steakhouses in the area that offer better quality, tastier meat offerings and more side bar options. The Medium-Rare beef options were flat-out Rare and the ribs were so over cooked they were dry. Spices seem d limited to red pepper and black pepper. The chicken and lamb were the most acceptable. The sausage was very dry. We had a vegetarian diner with us who found no good options and was limited to the meager salad bar, which also wasn’t worth the price.

We were sat right by the service station which made our special occasion less special when dirty dishes keep walking right past you.
It took asking 3 servers to finally get a coke, well a sprite because they ran out of coke(how is that even possible)
Other than that food is amazing, love the Lamb options
