It’s only worth it if you can eat any meet presented. The quality was below par and the salad item choices were too less compared to other FOGOs I have been

Fogo is great. In fact, we have been here once a week for a month straight. Service was not great in our past experience and we never get the Filet brought to our table. I would recommend this establishment just not this particular location.

Love this place, the host at the door and the waiters were all very nice and very good at their jobs. The food is always very good, so many options it's impossible not to find something or several things that you will enjoy eating.

The food was good. But the wait staff unfortunately did a terrible job. They didn't have the desert that we wanted. And they really didn't do much to make up for everything that went wrong.

We were seated right next to a table full of very intoxicated, very loud men. They had obviously been served a ton of alcohol by the restaurant. To make matters worse, the table was butted against the wall, leaving almost no room between the wall and table for a chair. The drunk guests were spawled out, taking up an enormous amount of room, and were seated in such close proximity, there was so space to move. It was very uncomfortable and very unpleasant. I had made a reservation earlier in the day and found it amazing my party was seated at the worst table in the restaurant. For the amount of money I spent on dinner, I expect a far more professional experience. Pizza Hut has better etiquette than this restaurant. The food was good. The experience was terrible.

I would give this location at least 1.5 stars. Only because the chefs came around. I made a reservation on 1/18 for 8pm. Not quite sure what triggered the server (Marcela) but my service was terrible. It's pretty upsetting to go to an upscale restaurant and receive terrible service. We had 4 people with us and went for the full churrasco experience with an expensive bottle of wine, one persons first time, ever. I've been to quite a few locations within the U.S. and never had to deal with anyone ruining my night when visiting a city I actually enjoy. The place was not huge, nor busy enough for her to not check in on us or ask if we needed anything. I asked for a side of their garlic mashed potatoes.. waited at least 30min and still not there. I had to mention it a second time for her to finally bring it out. No apologies or acknowledgement when it would come out either. Someone must've known that we were upset because at least 5 people checked up on us within the next 10 minutes , but the one job she could've done was apparently too hard. She cleared out and cleaned a table next to us but never checked up on us. We had to ask for certain sides, meats, and refills on our own. We were there for 2 hours. She ended up leaving before asking if we wanted our check. The next waiter (Nick) ended up giving us our check. I would not recommend this location to any of our friends or family.

It was an overall great experience for our anniversary. The only advice I can give is go on a very empty stomach. There is so much food. That’s not a bad thing.

The salad bar was varied and well ordered. I had no problem selecting low carb dishes. The selection was fresh but I had arrived just when the restaurant opened. The meats were mostly of a cheap variety with only one offering worthy of eating. I left most of my samplings on the plate.

Super disappointing. We have come before and had a great experience. However, despite having a reservation asking for a quiet table off to the side they put us next to the kitchen. We asked to be moved and she gave us the next table past the kitchen. Oh well. However, we never had a waiter. The hostess served us here and there and just directed us to the buffet. All was fine for the first half of the dinner until the servers quit coming to our table despite our green cards exposed. We asked for more food and 1-2 servers would come but then nothing. Someone even came by to give us a check when we still wanted to keep eating. Very strange. We finally gave up on more food but then couldn’t get our bill or credit card run. Finally someone came to take it and as we left we found out hostess/waiter sitting at the bar relaxing while we had waited for so long. Very strange dinner for a place that prides itself on the meat and service we left wanting more but joked that we must have been cut off or just wanted us out. Restaurant wasn’t that busy either. Weird experience for sure

Cannot day enough great things about our dinner at Fogo de Chao this evening. The food was great, as usual. Especially thankful for meeting Customer Service Rep. Anthony Garmoe. Once he found out we were from Texas and frequent the Houston Westheimer location, things went from good to fantastic! We appreciate his superior customer service skills, friendly conversation and complimentary desserts! Highly recommend the Fogo in Denver.

the evening started with us being a few minutes early for our reservation, but having to wait more than 15 minutes before being seating ~ but people after us (same size party) without reservations were seating ahead of us. when I pointed this out to the hostess she said we would be seated next. true to her word our pager went off. unfortunately as we stepped up to the hostess stand she was talking rudely about us to a coworker, saw us and very rudely said "merry Christmas" to us. really????

the food was great, the servers were wonderful ~ but your hostess might stop us from making our next reservation with you ~ you are NOT the only Brazilian steakhouse in town and you are NOT the only restaurant in town. you might want to work on the first person your customer meet especially since you just had a table of 5 very annoyed and you know that all of us will share our experience with friends and family.

My family and I were quite excited to take our Christmas dinner at Fogo, but the experience was quite disappointing. I have dined at Fogo 20-25 times over the past 20 years mostly in Sao Paulo and DC and this is the first time or service was actually below par. We had a reservation and were asked to wait a few minutes. No big deal, but my wife noticed they were seating two tops and for tops without reservations while we waited. My wife inquired with the hostess and it was clear that she forgot us. Okay, no big deal. After we were seated the initial service was good, but went downhill from there. For some reason even though our coasters were on green the servers were not coming to us. After 10-15 minutes someone came over and asked how we were doing and I told him no one had come over in at least ten minutes and he apologized and sent some servers over. The lasted a few minutes, then we were left alone again. Servers were literally serving all the tables around us and we pass right by. I couldn't even make eye contact. I asked one of the staff to have servers come over again and once again this lasted a few minutes, then no servers again. A third time someone asked if we needed something and I him (a different person) that we were not being served. Repeat the same situation and eventually we have up and ordered dessert.

We really love Fogo. I don't know what happened on Christmas, they seemed to have plenty of servers, we were just ignored. I'm not sure if this is the way Denver operates, but I have never received suck poor service from Fogo.

We went here for my birthday. We were sat at a table next to two very large parties (30+ people each) a one with multiple children under the age of 6 and one very loud company party. The service wasn’t great, the people weren’t especially friendly and everything seemed very hectic. The meat was luke warm and fatty. We left after eating very little due to the poor experience, and no one seemed concerned, just wanted the $120. I will never be returning or recommending this establishment to anyone.

Our reservation time was not met, my drink was not what was explained to me after one taste, I called one of the waiters over to explain that I did not like the drink may I order something else, he said yes and did not come back, after 20 minutes a blonde haired female manager came over and asked me why I didn't like the drink, I said the taste was not what I expected, could I order a different drink, she said yes took the drink and still left it on the bill. I asked numerous times for more meat, after 30 minutes the waiter came by and asked if I was served, both of us looked down at the clean plate he had given me 30 minutes prior, he said guess not! Managers need to do less pointing to get things done, jump in and help your staff, be a leader by doing more so the customer has the best dining experience!

We took our 3 grandkids for a Xmas dinner. The waiter seemed disinterested in us, ran through the instructions quickly while looking around - he did not make eye contact with us once, did not take drink orders and walked away. We waited and waited and finally a hostess came by, we explained we needed to see our waiter and then a new guy shows up. Other than the crappy waiter the food was good, the kids loved that they could anything they wanted and they loved the salad bar. We got the bill and since no one had asked us what we wanted they just charged everyone the $53 a plate fee. I only had salad bar and one grandson was only 8. After explanation the hostess took off the extra charge. I probably won’t go back anytime soon.

Been here numerous times. Typically impeccable. This time wait staff was a bit lost and behind as other staff worked to correct the service oversight.

Specifically, server didn’t have any knowledge of available beer selection, no drink menu, kept bringing water when we were obviously ready to vacate, plates left on table throughout meal.

Friendly as always. However, this time fell short of value offered.
