Scamm ALERT!!Check your bill at this place they overcharged and I had to call them on it. They charged me for a shrimp cocktail which is over $20 that I didn't purchase very deceptive (FRAUD)practice.

Worst visit ever. All meat was burnt. We barely had a gaucho at our table. Waited 15 minuts for bread, had to ask four times. Left restaurant hungry.

Didn’t even get seated. It was a mess from the start. Why take reservations when you can’t even accommodate them?

We were on time for our reservation but had to wait almost an hour to be seated. We waited 30-45 minutes between each carving for a few scraps of unseasoned meat. We asked our waitress, others carvers, a manager, and other staff to send send them our way and it wasn't until we asked for the check and complained about the service that our needs seemed important. Needless to say we left starving and had to settle for fast food in Valentine's Day.

Filet mignon was amazing. Make sure you tell them how you like your meat cooked so that they can cut off the correct piece for you. Do not skip the market table. Cheeses fruits and veggies are great.
It was somewhat loud and the drinks took way too long to come out. It could’ve been just because it was so busy.

We love Fogo but going on Valentine's day was the wrong choice. The quality service that is usually given was not because it was overly crowded. If you have a bad table spot like we did, the meats will run out by the time they would have reached your table. Took 10-15 on drink refills and had to stop waiters for requests rather than being checked in on. They also "forgot" to distribute the complimentary gift cards, unless you request it. Definitely going back, just avoid holiday weekends.

Excellent service from start to finish ! Alana , our server was SUPERB!!!! She made sure there was nothing we needed, and all wishes were meet swiftly. Alana had our glasses filled , she cleared old and provided new plates without us saying a word.
My husband ( a first timer) loved all the different cuts of meat served.
We were checked on by all levels of staff , asking how was the meal and if they could bring us anything else.
The highlight of the evening was when Alana brought us an Anniversary Cheesecake , beautifully decorated !!!!!!!
This dining experience at Fogo capped off our 34 th Wedding Anniversary Beautifully !!!!
PS- loved the live guitar music as well.

With deep appreciation and gratitude,
Michael and Rene Williams , North Carolina

This restaurant was ideal to celebrate my grand-nephew's birthday. He is a meat-lover and this was our first visit to a Brazilian steakhouse; it did not disappoint. The options for those with not such a hardy appetite were rewarding. I did very well with some excellent sea bass and added the Market and local Brazilian dishes.

Always a great time at Fogo. The salad bar is one of the best around, and you can never go wrong with an endless supply of delicious meats. Desserts are awesome as well. Leave a note with your reservation if you're out for a special occasion and they will take very good care of you.

We had to wait forever to get the meats or ask a manager for meats. We had to ask for water refill also and overall it is very slow even after you request. Food was ok. It was fully packed and waiters are running all around. For the food & service provided it is pricey.

Amazing service, friendly and efficient staff, and very delicious food! We initially went for restaurant week but we did not want to miss out on everything made available when choosing the full experience so we went for the full experience and it did not disappoint! We will definitely go back again!

Very average food. Didn't meet expectations. Tasted just like a franchise chain restaurant... I would consider it a combination of Golden Corral meets Cheesecake factory

It is a great restaurant. They renovated the facility so it has a very modern look to it. The food and service is excellent. I live getting food from the salad bar and then flipping over my card to green and eating everything together. I have gone with family, friends and clients. I’ve celebrated birthdays and negotiated contracts. It’s a good place for the whole spectrum.
