The location where we were sat was very distracting and loud. The quality of meat was lacking as compared to some other Brazilian Steakhouses we have visited. The variety was good and the salad bar was excellent.

The service this Saturday was subpar, not to mention the aggressive valet parking, who literally started “shoving” an F150 against my sports car, making repeated-aggressive-stop-and-go movements while I was just fastening my 4 year old son’s seatbelt... and he even had the nerve to say “I have a job to do"...

Its sad, because my kids love this place, and we used to go about once a week; I dont feel like returning after such bad experience...

Very nice place, took my gf for her birth day. She also thot it was very nice, classy. Service was gr8, food was gr8, salad bar was gr8. Flow of how to eat was different, not bad just different, like no menu, sides were limited to mashed potatos, fried banana and polenta....all kinds of meat, cut for u at ur command, meats were outstanding flavor wise....very enjoyable evening

My daughter wanted to try a new Brazilian restaurant for her birthday this year. We actually frequent another one down the street at least 3 times a month. We all were in agreement that we like the food and service better at the other one. You can’t beat their service. We felt we had to look for servers several times when needed. At the other one they are ready and we never had to ask for a thing. They watch their customers and know just from experience what they need. I’m glad we tried it out but we will continue to dine at Chama Gaucha. My daughter did enjoy her complimentary dessert.

Food was not as good as usual. Variety offered was less (or brought by less or not at all even after requesting it). Disappointed.

We had reservation at 630 and we showed up on time. We checked in and were given a pager being told we would be paged when our table was ready. We were seated 25 minutes later. A reservation doesn't mean you are reserved a table at this restaurant. I asked them what a reservation actually means and they said they were busy.

Food quality has gone downhill over the past year. Salad bar was decent, but several items were out and not restocked quickly. Bread served tableside was room temp and hard. Went on a Saturday night during rush hour, so expected everything to be hot and fresh...that was not the case. We were sat in a back corner where none of the meat guys came to, and when we questioned if we were going to receive better service, the server acted as if we were an inconvenience. We did request more fried bananas and received those very quickly. Would much rather visit Texas de Brazille where we know we will have great quality food and service!

We were seated in a corner with 2 adults and 2 child. Sometimes they would serve me but neglected my kids and my kids were looking at me as to why they kept passing in them.

Other times, they would neglect me altogether and never came to our table. Was it because we had kids with us at the table?

After dining at Fogo de Chao for years, I think that this is going to be my last time.

Took the family for my wife’s birthday. Everyone loved the food, even the baby. The lamb was crazy good. It’s two days later and I still have a meat baby Brewing. So good.

Redeemed! We used to come to this location all the time years ago and it seemed as though the meat quality started to fall. So we tried other Brazilian restaurants for a while. We finally came back to Fogo de Chau a couple days ago and it was fantastic! The lamb chops were probably the best I've ever had, full of flavor at medium-rare temp. Sadly, there just not enough of them to go around (they did take a little longer to circulate than the steak cuts). The filet mignon was fantastic too, melt-in-your-mouth good. We will be back! The price always hurts the pocket book, but you know that going there. Definitely recommend!

All of our party enjoyed the brunch at Fogo de Chao. I really feel this is the best time to go, value wise. The filet and ribeye were exceptional! Everyone liked every meat they ate, including the 5 and 6 year olds. The market table was not as extensive as I had remembered. The only thing that we did not like was the coconut crème dessert. It was dry and we weren't really sure where the crème part came in. However, this was for an anniversary celebration and the coconut crème was comped. Otherwise, we will definitely come back.

Worst Fogo de Chau experience ever! Service was terrible! Usually it’s spot on but today was completely off! We sat for 15 minutes with clean plates and no meat rotation, no refills, no bread! At one point we began to question if we actually had a server!

I am really disappointed in this recent dining experience! For someone who loves Fogo...today was a major letdown!

We’ve dined at several other Brazilian Steakhouses and always imagined Fogo de Chão was something spectacular due to the higher price and reputation. I’m sad to say we were sorely disappointed.
Everything about our experience was average... the food, the service, our entire experience.
We won’t waste our time and money on just another chain again.
My advice - skip the chain and high prices - go local.

We decided to try this Brazilian steakhouse again after we heard they were running a special for Aug/Sept for $39. It was worth it even if ribeye, filet mignon, and lamb chops were excluded. I'm not much of a meat eater but I had a pleasant experience. The only con would be that the A/C in the back side of the restaurant was not working properly. It was too warm compared to the front dining area.

1. Valet left the drivers door of our car open and engine running for 30 minutes in the rain.
2. We had to beg to get food to come to our table
3. Server rolled her eyes at us when we complained that no one was bringing meat to our table.
4. Had to ask several times for basic things like bread, fried banana’s and yuca.
5. Had to bus our own table. No one was removing the dirty plates and brining fresh clean plates.
6. The best thing about this place was leaving.
