Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse – Denver Ratings and Reviews
The meat was excellent but we didn’t get much of a variation. They were very accommodating when we had a special request. Service was so so, our server was very slow to ask for deserts and give us the check. Thankfully we became friends with a different server who pretty much took over.
It was birthday and we saw other staff bringing cake to birthday guest and they never brought friend anything. We bought cheesecake after waiting. Coffee was not complimentary and ended up paying for that as well....it was just coffee. At most .30 cents. Wow, can't even get that! Staff is good. Restaurant is extremely overpriced for spilling you up with salad bar. I could've gotten better steak at Columbine's Steak house.
I love this place. Or, I love the food. The restaurant was pretty busy, as expected for a Friday evening. The noise level was pretty high and I wish we had had a better table. However, you don't go to Fogo de Chao for the ambiance. Food is excellent. Pricey but worth it.
New furniture, they had us packed in like sardines. Can’t even walk to the salad bar without bumping into purses and diaper bags, yes, diaper bags. We had to endure 9, no kidding, nine! Small children squawking and screaming and throwing food on the floor toward us! Used to be a classy place with a “ safe” salad bar, it has now become a jeans and hoodie occasion with lots of noise and screaming toddlers. Our server was good but acted irritated that we were angry about all the kids. Really disappointed in this place. Used to love it but no way am I dropping $300 on dinner for a people watching experience.
Have been here before. However the service was really bad the last time. They kept passing us by with the meats, don't know why there was only two of us. The table next to us seemed to know most of the staff and they were getting most of the attention. Not that I mind however 1 hour for lunch and 100 for two people you kind of expect all tables to be treated well. Had four people ask us if we needed anything asked for a few Some came some didn't do we called it a day.
Somewhat disappointing. Salad buffet was out of a number of items that were only resupplied after we had been there 45 minutes. The “gauchos “ were not very knowledgeable on the different meats. Two of the offerings were very over cooked. It took asking three different waiters before we could even get beverages other than water.
Enjoyed very much. Traditional chuhascaria or Brazilian grilled meat restaurant. "Market table"(to call it a salad bar is a great understatement) is a meal unto itself, but you really have to get the whole experience and try the meats served by an endless parade of servers who slice off servings from big skewers right at your table. As is typical of Brazilian cooking, the meat can be a little salty, especially the outside slices, but it is delicious. One member of our party opted for a very nice sea bass instead.
We found the service very good. We were glad we got there early on a Saturday night on our way to the theater, but mostly because you really want to sit and savor and enjoy the food, not because of slow service.
What? I can't hear you!! My girlfriend and I went for what we thought would be a quiet dinner, but found it to be very loud. The open floor plan probably works best for the wait staff, who are constantly moving about the place, but it makes conversation difficult. The meats were very good in most cases, although I had one piece with so much gristle I couldn't chew it. The other odd thing was the "team" wait staff. We never really know who our server was. The service was good, but we had to repeat ourselves a couple times to new servers. Many of the clientele were dressed in jeans and T-shirts, which I found surprising for what appears on the surface to be an upscale steakhouse (at least the prices would indicate that!). It felt more like a cafeteria than a steakhouse!
I have been to this restaurant a few times before. This time we took my parents and they were extremely excited to try it out. Unfortunately the service was extremely slow. We were left waiting for servers to bring by meat several times. Also, each time a piece of beef was offered, my mother asked for a "well done" cut. Each time the server commented he would go back to the kitchen to get a well-done cut for her, but each time he did not return.
For the price we paid it was an extreme let down.
We come here frequently, and it is always delicious! This occasion was no different. In fact, Alvaro made sure to keep my plate filled with lamb the entire dinner as it is my favorite selection at Fogo. He was a superb gaucho and even recognized us from previous visits. Absolutely spectacular.
The service was incredible, and we had cocktails made table side. The food was subpar for the price. All the meat was ok, it wasn't bad but it also wasn't the best. I wish we had gone somewhere else to spend that much money because I know the food would've been better.
Service was nonexistent most of the meal. Had to get up and go ask for the check even. No one refilled our waters. Wine took over 15 minutes to get to us. Only 4 of the cuts came by our table. I've been here and to other locations many times and this time it was obvious none of the staff cared to be there. It was a Sunday evening so maybe that's why this was a poor experience this time but if you're not going to offer the same quality experience just because it's Sunday, then maybe you shouldn't open. Very disappointing.
Fogo is a reliable go-to spot for special occasions involving meat lovers. The salad bar is a meal in itself, the meat reliably tender and tasty, not to mention plentiful. The bar has recently become a favorite for happy hours and the well planned bar menu.
