The food was fantastic and Ismar treated us like royalty, checking on us consistently and making sure our table was having a good time and even better food. I love Fogo and will be back for the amazing experience!

Went there because all the reviews were great. Was not disappointed. Meat lovers dream. I was however disappointed with the service for a few reasons. Took a very long time to get our checks and we never got asked if we wanted any cocktail or wine by the waiter, so we only had water with dinner. Also, we went for the experience of them bringing all the meat to your table, which was a great all you can eat dinner. However, they also bring around $20 plates of shrimp and make it seem like its all part of the dinner. But they don't tell you it's an extra $20 for 6 pieces of shrimp, they just ask if you want any just like the rest of the food they bring to the table. I felt a little swindled by it. So anyone wanting to go there for the first time, just be aware of that.

While we initially were attended to, there were significant periods of time where we waited without attention: 10 minutes for water, no one came by with food (our green cards were face up), and after we were finished our plates were not cleared for at least 10 minutes. When present, the servers were pleasant, but they were absent more than they were present. I think a manager noted the problem because he cleared our plates, but it was most unfortunate given the cost of the meal. It will likely keep us from returning.

The experience is always enjoyable but for the third visit in a row we weren’t offered a variety of meats. Basically only 3-4 cuts over and over again. It just isn’t worth it for chicken and pork. No lamb, no sirloin, no ribeye.....we have given it three try’s so I doubt we will be back.

I have had the opportunity to visit Fogo De Chao several times and usually receive the best service. However, this last time was an exception. A friend and I were seated seemingly far away from the other guests in the restaurant most likely do to our age. We both visited the market table and then turned over the cards provided. Several minutes passed before we were offered any meats which was nothing major to us. Eventually they started coming out in strange spurts and then seemingly not at all for a little while. The servers were not very friendly, and did not bring our sides out even after they said they would. The quality of food was good, service not so much.

Usually i don’t give a bad review, but this time needs thinks to be addressed, first we ordered a bottle of wine, we usually do to enhance our meat experience, it took to long to arrive, second they offered a lot of chicken and pork, even when they are delicious, for the price you pay, they should be offering more prime cut before you get full. Not a great experience

Absolutely amazing. Food was over the top. Servers were very polite, friendly and made our dining experience one not to forget. Plenty of variety and the items on the salad bar was fresh. The maple-candied bacon was fabulous! The assortment of meats was way beyond anything I could imagine.

This was our first time dining. We will certainly go back soon.

Run from this place!

Absolute, hands-down worst dining experience I’ve had. I made a reservation through open table several days earlier and ensured we were on time. When we got to the restaurant we were made to wait 15 minutes until everyone else in the lobby was seated. The hostess was extremely rude to us.

We were seated at a table at the back of the restaurant in an area that was so loud we had to yell to hear each other as well as our server.

Due to dietary restrictions I requested the salad bar which was out of several foods including mozzarella cheese. One of the items the guys being around is a mozzarella cheese so I asked if I could have one small piece since it was out at the salad bar. The guy very flippantly told me no I needed to have a card for it ($59 as opposed to $29 for the salad bar).

The manager was near our table the whole time but quite oblivious to how awful everything was. Our drink requests went unfulfilled and we requested refills on the cheese bread a few times but didn’t get it until we were just about to leave.

The worst part of the entire experience was getting run into by a gaucho with a knife and hot meat as he callously turned a corner from the kitchen not paying attention. I’m 7 months pregnant so that was scary to me.

$300 for 5 people for the worst dining experience of my life. I can’t say enough bad things about this place. They’ve lost five potential future customers.

We came for a special anniversary, but I believe we were lost in the crowd. We barely saw our server after being brought our drinks. Took 30 minutes and us asking to get the side items. The food was delicious, but they didn’t seem to come around often (we were towards the back). Only time we had prompt service was giving us our bill. We were charged the dinner fee, not the lunch fee. We typically try to come every anniversary at the least, but this was a very disappointing meal for a 15th wedding anniversary. I’m not sure if we will continue our Fogo tradition.

We visited with a party of 9 for a birthday dinner. Our party included two young children. We felt a little crowded at our table and felt rushed and bombarded early on, but everything calmed considerably by dessert. Overall we enjoyed the visit. The total bill was pricey but expected. Birthday boy enjoyed the meal very much.

Food and service were great as usual. Our son was a first time diner and he wanted to try the leg of lamb, our reservation was close to closing time, but they put a fresh piece of meat on just for him! He loved it, we’ll be back soon!

Usually like the place, this one was not good. Tough, less than warm meat. Lower end selection it seemed. Salad bar had voids for 5+ minutes. Swing and a miss on the mgmt of that particular day.

Fogo de Chão is always an ok experience for the price that they charge. Not great. I will say that this time I had a dinner which did not include the ‘choice meats’ with a coupon. Both my kids had the full service including all meats. I noticed when the person bringing the ‘choice meats’ would occasionally come to table.. not really very often, they would cut very small pieces on my kids plates. I even commented to them how stingy Fogo was when it came to the choice meats. Make sure you always ask for more when they bring those out because they are trying to fill you up on their cheaper cuts.

Everything was very good and the server did a great job. My only complaint was we had to ask five times for the better meats. The cheaper meats were brought to the table many times but the fillet only was even though we asked several times. The lamb was only offered once.
