Excellent service and amazing food. Very helpful for our first experience and an amazing anniversary dessert of choice completely on the house! Will return very soon.

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.

We had a great time. The meats could have come around a few minutes faster, there were a couple of times we waited a little while for new meats to come around.

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.

We go to Fogo de Chão frequently, and always have such an amazing time. Tonight, Nick really came through for us and showed us the phenomenal customer service that he always does. Additionally, the gauchos are always superb and get it right every single time. Thanks so much for making our friends’ get-together such a wonderful experience tonight.

Fogo d Chao is a great choice for a relaxed time out with friends. Friendly staff were attentive, but not interruptive. I would recommend it to anyone who wants an experience out of the ordinary.

It was Father's Day so they were busy, but the waiter NEVER cleared the used salad plates or brought us plates for entrees. We had to use the bread plates that were already on the table. We have been there many times and this wa the first time the service wasn't attentive.

Fogo de Chao is always a reliable restaurant for a great meal with an excellent salad bar. They took great care of us, paying attention to the reservation note I had made regarding our 1 year wedding anniversary. They let us even pick out our dessert.

The customer service is off the charts. We have never had this level of service anywhere. Not sure what training program you implemented but WOW!!! A visit from all three managers and you never wanted for anything. And, it was obnoxious, it was perfect. Food was unbelievable as well but the service will be remembered! Thank you so much for making my night!!

Went to celebrate my 12 year olds birthday. Staff was great, we only got to see about 6 of the meats they had on the menu... we waited hoping to see more (like the Rib Eye) but it never came. At one point we were waiting with clean plates hoping some new meats would come out and they cleared the table. We asked if we could keep the small plate just in case and they seemed surprised. Not sure it was with the $53 per person we paid.
