The OpenTable website says "Waitstaff wear masks" but they were not wearing masks. It also says "Limited number of seated diners, Distancing maintained in common areas, Extra space between tables" but I didn't see any evidence of that, especially with a shared salad bar! So we left and went to a nearby restaurant which was far more covid-safe. No hard feelings - it's their right to run the business as they wish, but it would be useful if the OpenTable listing reflected reality.

We arrived 10 min prior to our Reservation. Flew down from Seattle to visit our son. We were told to wait in line to check in for reservation and the line went all through the lounge to the bathrooms. The people in front of is had a reservation for more than an hour earlier, and they had been waiting an hour. We stayed in line and when we finally got to the hostess, many other people coming through the door that were too entitled to wait in line just walked up in front of me and demanded to be seated. They were politely addressed and seated! I think I may have the wrong gender part to eat at this place! Anyways, I am celiac and specifically picked this place because it is said to have a good deal of items I can eat, including the Brazilian cheese bread and creme brûlée. All of this food was gone, the buffet was so cross contaminated I basically just ate meat. The lamb chops were overdone, very dry. The wait staff tried to help but it was so loud I don’t think they could understand. I would NEVER eat here again.

The food and our waiter were totally great. However the restaurant was totally overbooked so the place was crowded everywhere and the one of the people in charge of assigning the tables was rude and even was making grimaces while I was complaining for the delay to get our table, that was disrespectful and disgusting because we were not asking for favors we paid for an expensive service

The lobby was packed. Like a mosh pit. Made a reservation for 6:30pm on Thanksgiving. Showed up 10 early. Was told 30 min. Waited, then told another 30 min.

I asked if I could wait outside and still hear our name called. I expressed my concern about the 100+ people and COVID. Was told no, they wouldn’t come find me.

I expressed my concern about what the Fire Marshal would say about this crowd. Her whole demeanor changed. Was seated immediately.

I overheard a manager tell a customer average number of reservations on a Thursday is 200-300. On thanksgiving they took 1900 reservations.

Not an enjoyable dining experience. They continued to serve a very loud drunk couple seated next to us. Won’t be back.

Disaster Will not be back, this ruined our past positive experiences. Overbooked. Out of their famous bread. Multiple meats extremely over salted- we have been to Fogo de Chao multiple times this was a definite changes. The salad bar had some item changes and the selection and flavors were bad. The Tres Leche cake was changed and not for the better. A huge disappointment the general food quality was terrible Service was good

We had to wait an hour after our reservation, way too crowded during a pandemic.

Hosts and servers were not wearing masks despite a mask mandate being in effect.

Guests not wearing masks at open salad bar.

Disgusting.

Although the website indicated traditional Thanks Giving offerings, the selection was very meager often running out. Thanks giving food selections mediocre at best. Soggy stuffing, bland turkey. The butter squash soup was inedible. Desert offered as a separate paid option. Disappointing experience all around. If you are not able to offer a decent Thanksgiving experience, do bother trying or advertising this.

We went for their Thanksgiving feast. Our reservation was for 1p. We were seated immediately but then no one ever came to the table (10 mins or so). We had to stop the hostess to ask how it all worked, she offered to get a waiter to explain. Once the waitress came she explained and took our drink orders, they brought half the drinks but forgot my childrens sodas which did come half way through the meal after I asked. There wasn’t always food on the buffet but we chalked it up to it being busy. We always had to stop the meat servers, it wasn’t like they just came and offered us meat. I guess it was because we had children but I do not know. I’m not sure I will be returning to Fogo De Chao as I do not feel like I had a $425 experience or service.

The food was good...at least of what we had. The meat servers were great and attentive but was bringing out the same cuts of meat all the time. If you were new to fogo you wouldn't know what else to ask for because it's your first time! Our table server was horrible, took forever to greet us at the table and it wasn't even that busy. He never checked on us throughout the meal.I would understand if the place was full but it wasn't. We had to keep asking for the side dishes because he only brought out the pao de quiejo. We asked about the grilled cheese if they served it and that took a long time too. We eventually just asked for the check because our toddler was already getting restless. I noticed that the other servers were attentive to their tables. I would expect a better service for the amount you pay at this place. We used to come here all the time but the Lone tree location has better service.

Service was extremely slow. Nor the usual and expected attention to detail.
Our party was crammed into quite a small space. No cheese bread delivered until halfway through our meal. Took one of our servers 30 minutes to locate the bottle of wine that we ordered. No one said when water was ordered for the table we would be charged.

This visit just wasn’t up to par. It won’t keep us from future visits. Was just a disappointing visit while entertaining out of town guests.

Booked our reservation for 7:45 pm and showed up on time. We were not seated until 8:45 pm. Having been to other Fogo’s, the food here was lack luster at best. Meat had very little flavor. We had a loud table behind us that were obviously drunk. Service was not met unless we flagged somebody down. One of our guests wanted well done meat and the most done that was offered was medium. For a $500 meal, I was disappointed.

Before we even sat, a waiter came up and asked about water, forcing us into paying for bottled water. Then we got a hard sell on appetizers. It was extremely loud. I did love that they have reasonably priced wine. The service from the gauchos was very good, but I would have liked additional sides offered. We didn't see our waiter again so we couldn't ask for them. We were finished with our meal for about 15 minutes before we finally were able to flag down our waiter to ask for our bill.

Honestly, it was packed, so I would give another chance, but I wasn't thrilled.

I can’t recommend it. The service was slow and inattentive. The food was mediocre. The pao de queijo was made from a mix and baked in a small muffin tin. I’ve been to Brazil 14 times. My wife is Brazilian. This expensive restaurant can’t compete with the cheapest one in Brazil!
