Service was great. However the meat wasn’t good. It felt the meat had been frozen, it wasn’t fresh. Most of the meat was done or well done. Even when we asked for medium or medium rare, it was still more like frozen meat cooked.

Food was prepared very well, however less than half the meat menu was available or served. I asked and the lamb and lamb chops were not available, neither was the coupim.
Also the music was far too loud, making conversation difficult.
For the price, I would expect to have more if the meat menu available than it was. However what I was given was very good.

I would recommend for the food taste and value, the location is good and food is tasty but the staff seems they were having hard time as none of them was smiling and approaching the tables with attitude. I understand they might be tired since the place was fully booked on 14th night. It’s worth giving them a second chance.

Food was good, the restaurant has a decent selection of cuts for their churrascaria experience. The slow-cooked ribs were juicy and tasty, the lamb chops were amazing as well. We did find that the chicken options were a bit dry and not very flavorful.
The best part was the service, all the staff were extremely helpful and nice. We particularly enjoyed the conversation with one of the team members (Unfortunately, I did not catch his name, but I do remember he mentioned being from the South part of Brazil), he took great care of us and was always smiling and happy to interact.

Hi there We are sorry that you feel the pricing is expensive. Clearly we did not deliver to you a great experience that would make you feel differently. For that we are sorry. I don't know if you have gone to other fine dining places in Dubai or DIFC. Had you done that I think you would have found our pricing competitive for the area. Regardless - we hear your point and will work to improve the experience. Thank you for the review.

First thing to share would be that Fogo de Chao is our MOST favorite restaurant in the world. We have been to at least 15 different Fogo locations across three different countries. And multiple times. Every time I land in Chicago from Abu Dhabi, for example, I first go to the Fogo location close to ORD. Everytime. So when I say or write something about Fogo, I do it from my heart.

After waiting for a long time, when Fogo opened in Dubai, my wife and I were very excited about it. Then we found out Fogo Dubai charges virtually double the price of Fogo in USA! What on earth!! How unfair is that?

We eventually managed to go there on December 8, 2019.

The food was just okay. The taste was NOT the same for most of the meats we received when compared with the US locations. For example, my most favorite item, the lamb chops, tasted like I was eating cilantro paste! The service seemed very slow even though the restaurant was virtually empty for a Sunday lunch time. We got served perhaps six kinds of meats/cuts. Not sure what happened to the rest, even though we did order the full experience. The servers were nice people though.

Unlike the US locations, here they charge you for water - 24 AED for an apparently large bottle - although that bottle seemed like a 330ml one.

Obviously, after about 30 minutes or so of slow service, and repeat meat cuts, we had enough. We thanked the servers, paid the bill, and left. Lucky for us, we had an Entertainer coupon that helped us with our bill. Otherwise we would have paid roughly $150 for lunch for two of us, as compared to roughly $60 in the U.S.

We always get many offers for our loyalty (e.g., $35 off for dinner) from the US Fogo, but none of them work in the ME locations.

So what is our sad conclusion? If you are Fogo fan, then do NOT go to this location in Dubai. And if you are new to Fogo, then sure, go there as you would have nothing to compare it with.

We are very saddened by our poor experience here.

Hi Raihan Thank you for the feedback. We are especially sorry for the quality and slow service you experienced - neither is acceptable to us and we are addressing with the team in the store. Regarding your comments on pricing and coupons. Prices are different in different location including in the US. Dallas is 199AED and New York is 272AED (with tax) Our taxes are double theirs and the meat costs more than 60% to import than the US. We are sorry for the experience and will do better.

We are sorry that you found us to be expensive. Unfortunately Dubai is expensive for goods and rents and unfortunately that is reflected in pricing. The bigger issue for us is we did not perform in such way that would impress you. For that we apologize. Thank you for the review

Was disappointing because when made reservation for 17:15 I believed I was making reservation to be seated in the restaurant. Did not or was not made aware that the restaurant did not open until 19:00. So we sat in the lounge with a bar type menu. Was very disappointed. So beware when making reservations.

It is a very good Brazilian steakhouse, if you consider that all meet is imported from far away. I can recommend pichania and fraodzinha, and slow cooked ribs are also very good. Service is excellent for Dubai standards. View to Downtown Dubai and Burj Kalifa is outstanding, and you should go for short walk at the great terrace in front of the main entrance to the restaurant to make some very interesting selfies, especially in the dark hours.

I would definitely recommend the food in Fogo de Chao. The ambiance was not what I was expecting as it felt more like a food hall than an upscale restaurant. I have been to other branches before and they are much better. I was surprised at the cost of the wine, even a moderately priced bottle was almost $140USD which is expensive - even when compared to restaurants of a similar standard. I would not usually focus on cost in a review but I think this is worth mentioning. Generally a good experience.

For the price, in comparison to other brunch offers I felt dissatisfied.
The liquor is Normal and limited to basic 5 popular
No Espresso Martinis
Deserts are limited.
I will not go back unless I have too.
Service and staff are great.
Clearly management needs too rethink, as it shows they are cheap.
