Careful clean and safe service during this uncertain time.
Social distancing was adhered to and we felt very safe in our private dining area. Food and service was excellent as always!
Cannot give a better review in a time when we really need some recreation

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, at the salad bar you wait in line for an available server to help you. You walk around the salad bar with the server as you tell them want you want and they will put it on your plate. Everyone wears a mask, as long as you are not eating and drinking. It seems that there are not that many meat servers and you get pretty full waiting on them to come to your table by snacking on the salad bar plate. Meat was tasty. The price is a bit much considering we did not have left overs and got full off of the salad bar. I wish I ate more of the meat than I got to, but it was good considering the changes they have made.

I had reservations at 8:15 I walked in and checked in with the host. They told me to wait off to the side and we did. Over the next few minutes different guest that walked in and checked in after us started being seated. I received a txt asking me to confirm my visit which I did and waited for someone to seat us. After 15 min of waiting i went upfront and was told that they called my name to which i advised them they didn’t i had been standing to the side listening the whole time. I was finally seated, the servers where all great however the lack of food being brought to us was disappointing to say the least we maybe had 5 options of meats when the menu shows so many more. Overall not worth my time or second visit it’s way to chaotic, and the food was lackluster to say the least. I would much rather spend my money at a nice steakhouse where the ambiance is better suited than the chaos that appeared to be Fogo.

Absolutely terrible!!! My husband and I took some guests to this place in hopes of having a great meal and service, but we were very disappointed! It took over 30 minutes to get some meat brought to our table. Once they did come, we asked for well done and we got rare, the meat was pink and there was blood all over my plate! Maybe that’s how some like their meat, but it was definitely not what we asked for. There was barely any meat brought out, again if it did come out it took a very very long time to come out. Also the meat that was served was barely meat, just lots and lots of fat. So overall we were extremely displeased with the service at Fogo and we will never ever go back again!

It was different from the COVID before, and meats just came to your table at the same time. And we barely have time to chat with each other. We hope this could be improved in the future.

It was nice to see they had an open salad bar, where one of the employees was walking with you to get the food. However that was the only good part. As we were eating our salad/ appetizers the servers were constantly asking if we wanted meat.
Once we finished our appetizers, we asked for a new plate so we could begin eating the main course, the various meats. They only came a few times and we got maybe two or three different meats, then we waited almost 20 minutes before any of the servers brought us meat or even came to our table. They came more when we not ready then when we were ready for the meat. Overall, I was not impressed with the service.
In terms of value, it was not worth it. I will not be returning again. Definitely going to another place.

The salad bar was poor in selection and quantity. The service was mia once we were seated, with the exemption of one “meat server” who came by and asked us if we needed any more meats... to which I replied back to him “We haven’t gotten any meats yet”. From that point on he was the only one that was helpful to us.

I came out for dinner with my girlfriend and it was my 30th birthday weekend and she wanted to take me somewhere special and it turned out to be a TERRIBLE night!! The waitress we received didn’t explain the menu to us or give us any real options and couldn’t even give us recommendations or input on what wines go best with our dinner.. so the dinner starts being served and our table is shaking while we eat so they disturbed us in the middle of our meal and moved us to another place in the restaurant.. and it ruined my vibe.. then after another 45 mins the waiter brought us something else we apparently ordered when I told her we came for the all you can eat buffet.. I wasn’t even in the mood to have dessert.. my girlfriend and I probably won’t forget this terrible 30th bday dinner I am very disappointed with the service provided

Went for a birthday lunch as I’ve been doing for years and experience was not too notch as they are usually. Asked for New menu item ( Porter House Steak) was told it would take to long to cook and also asked for Lamb Chops and never received them. I also had a birthday coupon and was told I could either use the coupon or get the free desert. I’ve always was able to use the coupon and get a complementary desert for my birthday. I would overall give this bad experience 2 stars.

Fogo is one of my favorite steak houses!! However tonight’s experience was the worst! All the Meat was very dry, I wanted to take my fiancé here as he has never been! Tonight really made me look as I’d I don’t know a good steakhouse and was quite embarrassing! Hopefully the next tine I bring him he will have a better experience!

We have been in previous years prior to the pandemic, so we were curious to see how things were now with the pandemic. The only differences were that there were no more tokens and the salad bar was no longer open to serve yourself. Overall we enjoyed the experience, however I had noted in my reservation that it was for a birthday and there was no acknowledgement of that. The people at the salad bar also seemed irritated so it wasn’t very enjoyable to get anything from there. Otherwise, the food was great!

It took 20-30 minutes for my HH food to arrive.
I inquired & was told that there was a new Chef & he was alone.
All of my items ordered were prepared less than acceptable:

Burger was well done when ordered med well, served with standard fries instead of customary polenta fries

Empanadas were over cooked

Shrimp scampi had none of the standard accompaniments

I shared my disappointment to the MOD, & he was EXTREMELY accommodating.
Also, other servers took initiative to improve my dining experience.
ALL of my items were redone properly & a server also offered a complimentary desert.

My apologies for not remembering the names of all who helped & corrected the mishaps.
However, I will definitely return due to this stellar staff’s hospitality and list their names!

Obrigada, Fogo Staff
