Sent my 16 year old son with 5 of his friends to Fogo de Chao for his birthday. They raved about many of the different meats that were off the charts great! Service was great - even for a bunch of teenagers....

2 of 6 said it was the best dinner they have ever had! and the other 4 said their meals were simply awesome!

Straight in we asked for a wine sample and we didn’t see our server since. We asked a person that looked like a manager and got us our wine and orders in place. After the wine was delivered we waited for another 10 minutes for someone to open a bottle for us (we asked for a fresh cold bottle). We asked for an extra glass for dinner and never received it. Waited for meats for ever. As an apology we were able to order a free dessert to go but the waiter never came. After asking the ‘manager’ we were asked to get a second order of any dessert we want. Overall food was delicious but the service was inconsistent and not what I’m expecting for $50+ meal

We come here almost every Monday, for some reason. This past Monday service seems to be a bit off, and it could be because there was a couple new servers so wasn’t quite impress but other than that everything was great like always. Will be there again this Monday.

The bartender made an amazing pineapple Old Fashioned. It was the most memorable moment from the evening. We had been anticipating this dinner for weeks and it wasn’t bad. It really wasn’t but it wasn’t mind blowing either. The chicken was dry, the steaks weren’t very flavorful....but like I said it wasn’t awful. Just for the reputation I was hoping for something more impressive.

Charles, Patrick, and David provided absolutely outstanding service throughout the evening! We even had the Manager talk to us about the latest item added to the menu, a unique fried cheese with honey. Another outstanding addition to an outstanding menu.

We booked at 7:45 and get our table around 8:45. We didn't get all the meat and were obliged to ask many time for more meat.

Thank you for making our very first full family outing a success. Taking care to meet our request for a wall table for our service dog in training was
met with professionalism and grace and I really appreciate it.

It’s a good place to go if you are looking for a lot of middle of the road meat, in a short period of time. I felt rushed whenever the servers would come by with various meats on various skewers. The service was good, a little delay on some specialty drink orders to start the meal, other than that service was on point.

We did the all you can eat, I would return again to check out maybe ordering off the menu instead of the all you can eat.

Had late brunch for my son's birthday -- it was a great experience! Service was attentive and they were very accommodating (my son really wanted pineapple and they brought a plate to him when we hadn't seen it come around yet.) Thanks for a great birthday meal!

The manager was on point, but the server was very poor. I have been here 5 times and this one was the only bad trip I have made. Only 2 drink refills in 2 hours, and very little attention from our waiter. I understand how Brazillian steakhouses work with all the staff. The Gauchos were great along with the manager, but that is all. This is odd here, but worth the mention.

Great atmosphere and very upscale. We had 2-3 different wiaiters and service was lacking in some areas. Beware they try to charge you if you just want water. Our original never took our order and after 20 minutes another server approached us.

Food was very good, the men bringing the skewered meat were prompt. Otherwise, service was disappointing. Sides were delivered near end of meal. One person in our party ordered fish and never got it. Waited a very long time for our bill. Manager was apologetic - took fish off tab and four free desserts but it was a frustrating experience.

Birthday dinner. The place accommodates large parties well, so we went with Fogo-but regretted. Firstly, they won’t seat you until the entire party arrives. That means large groups are stuck waiting in the lobby. If the bar were capable of serving people in a timely fashion that would be ok, but unfortunately we stood at the bar getting NO service at all for several minutes.

In that time our complete party arrived, at which point we told the hostess we were ready to be seated and she asked us to wait for our table to be ready. Um, isn’t that what we just did??? What is the point of a reservation if the table isn’t ready? After a few minutes the hostess took us back to be seated, and the table is NOT SET. Seriously???

Add to this a 30minute wait for the first round of drinks to arrive... I actually interrogated a manager as to why the service was so bad. Was this an unusual night? Were they slammed? Did they have some excuse for this? She informed me they were not slammed and everything was fine... so that tells me this level of service is standard to them. Well, it was sub-par to our group who expects better for the $50-something per plate (plus drinks and extras) we spent, so we won’t be returning.

I took my girlfriend to dinner right before I proposed. She had never been to a Brazilian steakhouse before, and she absolutely loved it. Everything was excellent. The food, service, ambiance. It was a perfect start to a fantastic date night.

For what you get it is too expensive. Have been going to Brazilian Steakhouses in US for years and also in Brazil. Of course, there is no comparison between what i got in Brazil versus US. Brazil was light years better. However, i lowered my standards for US. But Fogo in Denver, to me, really missed the mark. Especially in the salad bar. Could have been a whole lot better. It was pricey so i expected outstanding everything including ambiance but thought it was good and somewhat ordinary.

I went for a business meeting. The guest and I had a great evening at the Fogo de Chão. Food was very good. A bit noisier for business discussions even though we had a corner seat. Overall pleased with the dining experience.
