Fogo used to be our favorite restaurant but after tonight’s visit it’s on our do not return list. The service was aweful and we and I barely had any meats at our table. This is not the Fogo of past. If you want good service and a great meal look elsewhere. We will not be returning.

The food selection was exceptional. My advice to new customer would be to try and pace yourself. Also, definitely make room for the lamb chops.

Service was slow. Made reservations and still waited 20 minutes. Asked for our bill and had to wait another 30 for that. Then they forgot our card and waited another 30 minutes for that. Was our first time there and it’s not a place I’d go back to simply because of the service I got.

Normally a great restaurant but this time, not so much. Limited selections of meat. We asked for medium filet mignon and told they only had rare or well done. Staff seemed overwhelmed with number of guests/tables, and we did not get any personal attention.

We had the most excellent service! All of the waiters were so incredibly nice and helpful and contributed greatly to the whole experience! I actually left my wallet on the table and our waitress ran out of the restaurant to return it to me! She honestly deserves a raise (brunette female with large black glasses). Will definitely be coming back again!

A wonderful experience was had by all at Fogo today. My clients were very impressed by their service, variety of offerings and quality of food.

I love their bottom sirloin with chilies and their variety of salad offerings. There is something for every client and they are always impressed.

The manager came by and visited out table just to make sure everything was great. Cannot day enough good things.

I keep coming back for the delicious chicken breast & the secret spice they use to cook it. Brought an old friend here for his first time, he was impressed at how fast meat service was. Can’t wait to come back for more chicken & a Brazilian cocktail. You rock Fogo!

I took my spouse for his birthday and he was woow for the quite environment. He enjoyed the fresh salad bar and I enjoyed the side dished. The fry banana was my best, I recommended!

We tasted each meat and it was delicious. We wanted to stay there for more than 2 hours and continue eating. I would give a Shout-Out to all the people that made my spouse's birthday an amazing day.
Thank you;

Overall good. Salads and sides okay. Meats were okay. Some not so flavorful. Chicken thighs were delish! Wish there were more hot side options. Nice atmosphere and great service. Wasn't super fantastic but I would still go again.

The food was delicious but I was not happy about the variety. There was rarely any well done meats which caused me to not eat as much and they told me they would come back around and never did. Occasionally, the servers skipped right over us as well which was upsetting.

Have dined here since they opened in early 2000's.

Overall the place seems to have declined. The top notch service they were always known for is in serious need of rehab. Bar service prior to seating and was very slow even though we were only one of three parties at the bar.

Witnessed a drug deal go down in the men's room.

They've added warm items including soup (did not try) to the salad bar. They appear to be offering an add-on to the menu in the form of a shrimp cocktail carried throughout the dining room. Food was great, gauchos were as prompt and attentive as usual.

Missed the typical manager stop-by to ask how things were.

I had a large business meeting of 13 people and nobody made dinner reservations. So I opened up my Open Table app and got a table on a very busy night and looked like a hero. Food was awesome and everyone left stuffed. Great app and an excellent place to eat when in Chicago.
