Reservation for 6:45 wasn’t seated until nearly 7:30. Waiter forgot to bring us plates so we couldn’t be served after being seated. Food was delicious but we had to flag someone down everytime we wanted to be served.

They completely overbooked for February 15th. We have been many times, but this was absolutely the worst service we have ever had. They had over seated walk-ins and were running more than 20 minutes past reservation times. Once seated, we waited 35 minutes for cheese bread, 20 minutes for a single person to come by with any meat - the manager finally came by and asked if we needed anything so we explained the situation and he looked at us as if we were crazy and still no one came. Even the waiters were discussing how horrible the situation was. The waiters in our area really did try, but other than drinks, the whole situation was terrible. Management totally over committed and then did not have the necessary food/staff ready to handle the crowd. Very disappointed!

We had a 6:00 reservation. We all arrived by 5:55. We weren't seated until 6:20. The resturant appeared to be very understaffed. The waiter hardly ever came by. We got about 4 rounds of meat and then the food stopped, we had to flag someone down to get chicken and filet. Our drinks ran out several times, the dirty plates sat on the table for over 30 minutes, and then when it was time to go, we had to flag someone down again and wait 20 minutes for the check. On top of that, the dress code has become very casual, shorts, jeans, club clothes, etc.

They definitely need more guys serving meat! We had our card on green but you would’ve of thought we had it red because of how few times the guys came by our table. We did not leave full.

A pre-Valentine's dinner. The dining area is large and pretty, but feels cramped, barely enough room to walk between tables & feels like you're intruding into other tables's conversations. Food was excellent, service was superb. Price sets this as a very special occasions only place to eat, but worth it.

We came here for our 8th anniversary. While I had expected a fine dining experience from the stories friends had relayed about Fogo de Chao, I was unprepared for the peerless service and food at the height of culinary mastery. I rarely have encountered a meal so exquisitely executed, waiters so attentive, and an ambience that matched the meal perfectly. While the price was steep, I would happily pay it again for what is sincerely one of the top restaurants in Houston. Fogo de Chao certainly holds a well deserved spot as a paradigm of dining.

Prompt service and the staff made sure we got value out of our visit. The South American wines were half off and when we tried to order a different wine, they made a great recommendation to save us some money.

Overall it was good. Food very good. Overall service a bit slow. Had to repeatedly ask for certain cuts of meat. Chicken and pork were plentiful but finding a filet or lamb chops was difficult. Appeared to be understaffed.

Today was disappointing. The service was poor apart from a few people. We waited 5 mins after flipping the discs to green and then has to ask someone to help us. The woman at the next table had to get her own water from the waiters station. We had to ask for everything at least 2-3 times. A floor manager came past us while we were waiting, looked at our empty table and walked off. Meat was asked for MR and got well done. Prices at 2:30 were full dinner prices.

The food exceeded our expectations. The servers made their rounds quite often. The managers also checked on us multiple times to see if we needed anything in particular.

There was a table right behind us that had a customer watching a movie on an iPad. It was very disruptive and did not make my time with my wife a good experience. I tried to get them to turn it down or use earbuds but it didnt happen. I tried to get the staff to intervene but nothing happened. Spending $200 for a meal should also include at least a semi-quiet and to not have a loud disruptive table near myself and wife.

The ambiance was too noisy. My husband and I prefer a more quiet ambiance. The seating was to congested. I would also like to see some seafood options included as oppose to having to pay for it separately.

We loved the food, everything was hot and perfectly cooked, the only thing that was a bummer was our supposed waiter, he presented himself as Jose and said he will be taking care of us tonight and if we needed anything to let him know, very polite at first. At one point my mom asked him for a spoon which he never brought he never once visited our table during the two hours we were there until we were ready for the check. We noticed we weren’t the only table that was being disregarded. It seems like all the side tables are frequently ignored as multiple times we found ourselves and those next us trying to get someone’s attention. I understand it was a busy Saturday night but a waiter should still check in on his tables every so often. I still tipped him but man I wish I hadn’t

We made a reservation based on an email advertising FOGO Restaurant Month $39 per person dinner.
Upon arrival there was a sign at the Reception desk stating Dinner $55.95. I inquired and was told that it was for "limited selection and did not include lamb, pork, filet or prime beef". I showed the employee my email and she replied, "You should have read the fine print on page two". We had guests with us and asked to be seated for the "normal price" dinner. I thought bait and switch tactics went out with Sears Roebuck, but apparently not.
