The service was great. The meats were very bland no seasonings. Been to many Brazilian Steak houses over the years including other Fogo locations this was the worst I’ve had.

Friendly staff. Needed to ask multiple times for specific cuts. And then never got the filet after numerous requests. Service was very slow and very long waits. More so than typical. Very dissatisfactory experience.

They offer complimentary valet parking, which was nice. The service from arrival to departure was really good. However, a worker exited the men’s bathroom without washing his hands. I found this to be very disturbing. I did share with the restaurant manager, who is very help and very apologetic.
This Fogo de Chao lacks ambience. I have not been to one where the patrons are wearing baseball caps.
Nonetheless, service and food were good.

Not worth the money. We were a table for 8. The steaks were cold and lean. They keep coming to our table with the same lean cut of meat at least 5x. When we refused to eat the same cut of meat, they stop coming by our table. We had to call them over to ask for a different cut and even then they forgot about us. Salad bar is average at best. Wait staff seems unorganized and not service friendly. I would not recommend this place. Way too pricey for this type of service and food. Very disappointed.

We went because there was a coupon on Facebook for $39.99 per person. We were unaware that you had to let them know beforehand that you were using a coupon. When I got my bill and noticed the price difference, I mentioned it to the server who then got a manager. It almost seemed as if the manager was reprimanded me for not reading the small print. I showed her the screen print from my phone that did not mention what meats were no included as well. After going back and forth a few minutes, she finally agreed to honor the price from the coupon. Although we've been before, I was completely appalled at the level of service provided by the manager. As a result I will not be attending that location again. Very unhappy customer. On another note, the food is okay but nothing spectacular. The salad bar could also use a update. Not enough options and variety. Not everyone wants to eat cold food.

I requested a round table and I very much appreciated that being honored. It was an exceptional table, secluded, and next to the salad bar.
We celebrated 2 birthdays. The service was wonderful. Several people ( other than waiters) came by to check on us.
It was a perfect evening.

It is definitely overrated. We had to wait for more than half an hour just to try the filet mignon. It seemed like we had to wait for a long time to try the meats that we wanted. It was not worth it.

Still a great experience and delicious meats. However we noticed servers came by less frequently with cuts of meat than in the past possibly because of staff cutbacks? Several managers checked on us but fewer servers and selections. What we had was still good as always.

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...

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.

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.
