Owen was our server and was very sweet from the minute we sat down. We were served and it was my husbands birthday and he more than accommodating to us. So sweet.
Honestly the only thing that was bad was that there was such a loud rowdy table behind us full of rude, and inconsiderate guests. Owen h

James did a very great job accommodating us and made our first experience with Fogo De Chao worth while. The food was absolutely delicious. You can tell they care for their customers by making your visit a great experience from when you walk through the door until you leave. My Valentine’s Dinner was definitely the best part of our celebration for the holiday. I will definitely be going back.

All the food was delicious. All you can eat buffet style setting. I feel its a bit over priced but the variety in meat made it worth it.

It was a great experience. The only thing is ...They were circulating the same meats in our area for a while. We didn’t get to taste some of it because we left after 1.5 hours. Maybe circulate different meats more evenly...

I went with my boyfriend for our Valentine’s dinner. Instead of being treated like actual customers, I felt we were neglected throughout our stay by the servers who were mainly tending to larger groups.
They only checked on us about twice throughout the night. And even though I requested beef ribs multiple times since I sat down, it never came.
We appeared to have two servers. One was delightful, but super busy. The other was not as pleasant and had a dismissive attitude towards us.
The place was super crowded and noisy.

We come here every year with a large group of friends and the wait staff was terrible the last two years. Very rude, not helpful and acted as though we were inconveniencing them when we asked for anything. Our drinks took over 40 minutes to be delivered to us and our server was extremely rude when my husband tried to hand him his empty plate. He told my husband "just leave it on the table bro" not very professional for the amount of money we spent on our dinner

Food was terrific!!! The staff delivering all the wonderful types of meats were fast and super friendly. Our server forgot about us for most of the night so it took 45 minutes to get drinks and we had to ask multiple times for the bread and other side dishes that were delivered to others immediately. Then it took 20 minutes to get out check from the time we asked. Despite the bad experience, I would still go back.

Service kinda sucked. The people were nice but the food took so long to come to us. It was Vday so it’s expected to be busy.. the buffet table was underwhelming. I asked for rice about 10 times it was taking so long. Didn’t enjoy my first time. I prefer Texas de Brazil

So we went here on Valentines Day with another couple. Clearly a popular place as it was packed. Had a good selection on the drink menu, Market bar was amazing with that imported cheese and smoked salmon. The meats that came out were great, but lacked in pork options in my opinion. Only issue we ran into was a lack of attention from our server. Yes, it was crowded but we spent 3 hours there due to seeing our waiter only every 20-30 minute intervals. While we didn’t reflect it in the tip it’s something to be mindful of (but it was Valentine’s Day.) Overall, honestly was a great place and food was amazing. Be mindful though, prices are not cheap and got caught off guard after being handed the bill at the end due to the lack of acknowledgement of how we “ordered” something. This is definitely a special occasion place because it was a fun time and great food.

My boyfriend and I went for Valentines. We arrived a bit late to our reservation due to traffic, but the hosts were understanding. We got seated right away.
The salad bar is great, with the charcuterie, dressings, vegetables. The cheesy bread they bring to your table is the best part. I wish that the bread next to the salad bar was warm. The main event, the different meats and cuts they bring to your table are usually perfectly cooked. One downside is that you might have to wait a while for the picanha to come through.

Waiters were very nice and came by to give us clean plates. We received meat on at a good rate. The salad bar was so so delicious and clean and organized at all times.

Absolutely loved celebrating our 2nd Anniversary here! Our server was top-notch and brought us grilled pineapple for dessert for free when we couldn't find anything on the dessert menu that was dairy and gluten-free! An amazing experience!! Thank you!

Incredible experience! Went here to celebrate a friend's birthday and was astounded by the incredible warmth from the staff. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming. Dave was our primary server and he was AMAZING! Super nice and very informative. He has a knack for this. And it shouldn't need to be said that the food was spectacular 😊

Had a late lunch to celebrate my mom’s birthday. The restaurant was quiet and not many people there. But, the staff made us feel very welcome and very special. We did the full lunch with all of the different types of meat that were available. My mom prefers her meat well done. They brought out a number of different cuts of meat, fillet, lamb sirloin and everything was perfect. The staff was friendly, and attentive.

Everything we ate was prepared perfectly -- and we ate a LOT! Superior service & great ambiance. We had a company gathering there and could not have been more pleased. They really went the extra mile with our large group -- many, many thanks to the whole FdC team!

We enjoyed the excellent food and experience at Fogo de Chao! We especially enjoyed the rare and tender flank steak, prime sirloin and luscious Parmesan pork! The Lam hops were also amazing! The leg of lamb was slightly overcooked, unfortunately. The salad bar was delicious as well! We loved the Brazilian soda too. The staff was attentive, and made this a friendly experience. The price was higher than we expected, which makes this a special occasion visit only, unfortunately.

We had a party of six. After the first wave they avoided coming to our table. We asked our server twice for additional rounds, but no one showed up. Subpar service, with empty plays left on the table. At least the three bottles of wine we ordered were great. 🤷‍♀️

Took my wife for a birthday dinner before seeing the Monet exhibition at the Art Museum and we had a wonderful time. Not crowded at all at 4pm, but it filled up while we are a leisurely meal. The food and the service were both absolutely fantastic and I recommend it to anyone looking for a nice meal downtown. Parking can be a problem, but my wife reserved a parking spot in the attached garage with an app when she made dinner reservations and it worked out well for us. Dinner for two including wine and a tip came to $120 - more than we usually spend, but well worth it for the unique experience.

The hostess, busboys and meat servers were very responsive, engaging and polite. Our main waiter was inattentive and took way too much time to greet, deliver drinks (forgotten) and present our bill. He had a large party (20?) next to us and seemed to socialize and enjoy them while forgetting us.

Disappointed!! Way over priced even with the $39 special. Apps are crazy over priced! The food was just ok. Not sure why there isn’t salt and pepper in the tables, but if definitely needed for the mashed potatoes. Fighting off fruit flies in a restaurant the pricy is a real turn off.

I’ve been to several Fogo locations over the years (Houston, Dallas, Vegas). It’s one of my favorite restaurants.

The Denver location, however, is not up to par in food quality. The quality and flavor of the meats and even the cheese bread is not what I’m accustomed to at the other locations. Not sure why, but both my wife and I noticed it separately and left somewhat disappointed.

We have been going here for about 6 years for mine and my husband's birthday and anniversary and normally have an amazing time. We were disappointed this year because it seems like this place is under new management again and normally when you use your birthday coupon you get a birthday dessert which makes the experience so much better! But my husband didn't receive one this year and it was the manager who took the coupon and gave us the bill. (Just a note. It's not the fact that it's complimentary but they wrote happy birthday on the plate and made you feel special on your special day).

If you love meat, Fogo de Chao is for you. I enjoyed lamb and pork, I am not a huge fan of steak/beaf. Overall it is a great experience to try a Brazilian steak house.
