It’s nice to be able to enjoy dining in again. Even when we can’t dine in we try to support with take out as much as we can. We do miss the friendly staff, Danny, Dan and Bianca to be exact. They treat us very well every time we go for Monday night dinner.

Never cheap but always worth it. The steak selections were just outstanding! The service couldn't have been better. They found ways around the distancing and salad bar that seem to work well. We will definitely be back.

Booked reservation on Open Table for same day. When I arrived at 7 PM the restaurant was closed. Drove 1 hour each way for nothing. Is it really too difficult to notify me if you are closing or update your hours? Pathetic.

Was a few minutes late for reservations and tried to call four times. When we arrived our table was given away. Waited 15 minutes then got a table. Sat at the table for over 20 minutes before a waitress got to our table. Ordered drinks that never came for over 15 minutes so we walked out. The tables were not spaced very far apart, which is not COVID safe. Was excited for a great dinner and got poor service and didn’t even get to eat.

Food was great as usual, but the service was poor. We asked for something from the salad bar that only the servers could provide and had to ask three times before we finally were served. It took over 15 minutes for us to finally receive our check. Not sure we will return anytime soon.

I wish Fogo De Chao had made a note in their menu that they weren’t doing Restaurant Week on Fridays or Saturdays. We showed up there this past Saturday and were greeted with a big sign on the door that they weren’t doing Restaurant Week on Friday/Saturday, “No Exceptions.” We still ended up eating there because we had already driven downtown, parked in the garage (flat $10 fee), and everywhere else was booked due to the 25% occupancy restriction in the city of Denver.

My family was visiting from Houston Texas and if I could give this review a negative number, I would.We had a reservation at 5:30pm and waited 15mins for the hostess to seat us. Then we was seated all the way in the back where the food barely came to us. Food was tasteless and horrible all around. Never going back to this location.

The hostess need some help. We walked in and they said we're not taking any walk-ins right now as you can see it's very busy. We open our OpenTable app just to find out there's availability within 15 minutes. We walked back in like "why didn't you just tell us to go book online 2 minutes ago?" lol. Letting them know about her 8:15 table we thought that that would be checking in we ended up sitting off to the side not checked in until I finally walked up at 8:30 and they greeted me like we had not just h had 2 interactions in the last 30 minutes. To management, instead of booking and Turning Tables like most restaurants want to do, you have hostesses turning away business.

Interesting the concept of the Churrasco experience. We weren’t able to order yet when the food runners where jumping to the table offering meats. I’m very thankful with Marcela who saw our faces of “we haven’t ordered yet” and promptly came and explained the full concept to us, even though she wasn’t our waitress. She took the time to explain also every single cut they offer and even asked us our temperature preference for each one of them, then she made sure the food runners understood we were in a misunderstanding before (I hate to say this, but one of them gave us attitude when we told him for second time that we hadn’t ordered yet). Anyways, she also walked with me towards the salad buffet and picked the items I asked for.
She saved the meal. Thanks Marcela, you provided an excellent service.

The restaurant needs some help. Only cheaper cuts of meat were served. Over priced for the food being served. The up selling is out of control and is almost deceptive. You can do better than this.

Not a great visit this time around. Our service was ok at first but after we returned from the market area was when our night turned out extremely poor. We received a total of 6 meats from their full menu of 15 cuts and we had been asked by the same server for Brazilian sausage exactly 6 times within our short hour of eating there. I also specifically asked for filet mignon which, long story short, never found its way to our table and that was when we decided to call it a night. For a 210$ price point for the three of us that dined I feel eating at chili’s would’ve been a better option that night. Thank you for hosting us but my wife and I will not be returning to this location and for her brother whose first time it was going it was pretty embarrassing on our part hyping up this restaurant for him and getting this kind of experience.

The entire buffet thing worked out, but maybe isn't a good idea. Our waitress was both training someone and overtaxed so we needed to find her a few times. The food was good, but not as good as usual. We are going to pass going back to perhaps after COVID. Also there were a LOT of people in there.

Very disappointing; while I’m absolutely appreciative of the challenges related to pandemic -that was not the problem. Waiter took our drink orders and and never came back. He was around we saw him - but never to our table again. No hand off to another waiter. For the next 90 min, we had to flag someone down for everything. After 15 minutes of no food on our table, and waiters enthusiastically offering their carved meets to all the tables around us - it was like we were invisible - we finally flagged someone, and were then swarmed with meat. Some was very good, some ok one was terrible. Fifteen minutes after being served the “main event” side dishes were dropped off on our table - they were good, but WAY to late in the meal. I guess that’s what you get when you don’t have a waiter.
The “Food Bar” was somewhat sparsely populated, and appreciate they have wait staff serving - but understaffed. Waiting ten minutes for two people ahead of us to even start and overall 20 minutes to get to eat a bite. (Staff was very lovely and accommodating, just not set up well).

My “old fashioned” tasted like watered down pineapple juice. No hint of whiskey. My companion asked for a second drink of the same and was provided a totally different drink; never got to ask about it - again - no waiter.

Finally asked for the bill - so ready to get out- and was brought to us incorrectly THREE times. A lovely waitress was pleasant about taking it back over and over, but I guess that’s what you get when you’re on your own at this restaurant.

Have to say that each individual we interacted with was pleasant, but it was rather stunning that we were completely ignored. I certainly expected better for a relatively high end restaurant. To spend $180 for a meal that we had to wrestle for, was definitely not a good experience. It was exhausting and miserable. Some decent food, but definitely not worth the trouble.

We were recently here this past Saturday. Our reservation time was 730pm, but when we arrived they didn’t have our table ready. We were instructed to have a seat at the bar and order drinks/apps while we waited. We ordered 2 drinks and an appetizer. We were finally seated around 750 pm and were told our appetizer would be waiting for us at the table. It took us awhile to get our actual server’s attention in to order the classic “Experience” which was to include the salad bar, meat selection, and Brazilian sides. About 1/3 of the way through our dinner, we asked about our appetizer we ordered from the bar (and already paid for), but hadn’t received. They then rushed it to us and apologized for not having it to us on time. We later ordered another round of drinks. One came, and the other did not. We had to ask about it twice before finally receiving it. As dinner came to a close, we only received 1 of the 4 Brazilian sides that were to be included in our “experience”. Another manager stopped by the table and we asked about the sides, he apologized and offered to bring us them. We were stuffed at this point, and asked if we could take them to go, along with our leftover dinner. He said they don’t normally do to-go orders but would make an exception. All in all, food was 10 out of 10, experience and guest satisfaction was extremely poor.
