This was by far the best Brazilian Steakhouse that I have been to. We splurged and got the wagyu ribeye and it was definitely worth it! I suggest anyone that goes there should absolutely try that cut of meat cooked on the salt slab.

Although I had a reservation we still had to wait 30 minutes for them to set up. We did not receive a variety of meats and the server stayed confused. It took a while to get drinks and food in general. Most items at our table were not refilled although we asked countless times. We were also overcharged for our drinks and it wasn’t taken off our bill.

Yasmeen, our team understands your frustration, as you should never be kept waiting for so long, especially with a reservation. We hope you allow us the chance to regain your trust and support in the future.

The food was not bad but I was disappointed with it still. Most all of the meats came out very dry and were lacking flavor. The first time I went here it was amazing but this time it was not even close compared to last time. Not much waiter interaction either. I would go back but if the food comes out like this again then I wouldn’t return.

We went On Valentine’s Day the waiting was 30 minutes with reservation! Temperature outside was less than 32F We were sit in the first table where everybody pass by (no social distance, table were with exactly the same configuration as always). Lobby was packed full and the door was left open for big periods of time and all the wind blow in our direction, it took several minutes to find a manager to complain and more minutes for him to find us another table. Food was good as always I just don’t recommend for you to go on a holiday like this, they simply don’t have idea how to handle big crowds or to respect reservation times

Felt like I was on a discount cruise waiting in the buffet line. Food tasted like lighter fluid and only received 5 cuts of meat. Table was 15 minutes behind reservation. Had option to sit outside in tent which I thought was tacky and although I understand the reason to keep revenues up during COVID The food being walked in and out the front door exposed to elements not very smart. We will not be back.

Fogo has definitely gone down. The salad bar that once reigned supreme is a shadow of what it was. This was pre -COVID so, no excuses.
Ambiance wise - it felt like a Luby’s. The saving Grace of our visit were the lamb chops which were deliciously seasoned and not overcooked and our waiter.

Not the same quality of meat that I have had in the past. Also the salad bar choices were not as good as the past. We had to continually ask for different cuts of meat because they came around with the same ones every time. Too many Brazilian Steakhouse choices in town to eat here after this experience. So sad to write this review because this used to be an amazing place to dine.

My spouse and I had 9 o’clock reservations on New Years Eve. We arrived and were told there would be a short wait. We were given a buzzer. We waited near the bar for about 15 minutes before our table was ready. We were given a small table near the entrance. We asked if we could have a different table which was not on the main aisle and were told that it would be a while. We decided to take the table that we were given. The waitress who helped us was nice and attentive. She explained how everything worked and took our drink order. I proceeded to go to the salad bar. When I got back to the table, the waiters began bringing the meats by. This is when it got super annoying. The meat was coming by constantly. We hadn’t even had a chance to finish our salad before our meat plates was full. Our drinks hadn’t even arrived at the table. It felt rushed. It felt as if they were throwing food at us so that we could hurry and finish with the table. From sit down to finish, we were done within 30 minutes. Also, the ambience was poor. The restaurant was very lit and there was no candle on our table. It didn’t feel like a romantic dinner at all. For a $180 meal, I expected it to be a much nicer experience. I was disappointed that we chose this restaurant for our last dinner of 2020.
