I love the food and that is why I keep coming back but I think the service could improve. Almost every time I come I have to ask for another drink and it takes a long time to come. This last time, our side dishes (mashed potatoes and bananas) came when we were almost done.
I also would recommend they improve their feijoada. As a Brazilian, I know it can be much better than what they are currently serving - the liquid part needs to be ticker and more variety of smoked meats inside which will give it more flavor.

It was my friends 30th birthday and this was his first time going to Fogo De Chao. He was so happy with all the meats and the quality in which it was presented and how it tasted. It was a great evening for dinner!

This restaurant has a classy feel and the Gaucho’s add to the experience but the wait staff leave a lot to be desired. You think you’re headed to a nice steakhouse but you leave feeling like you’ve been to more of an upscale buffet.

Not only would I recommend it to a friend, I did so while I was still there. I kept going between 4 and 5 stars on value. I thought it was a bit expensive for how much I ate. However, I enjoyed all of it. I didn't understand the food is delivered by whomever happens to be walking by with meat. I did make a request for a specific cut and it was delicious when it was delivered. Now that I understand how it works I WILL return again.

The staff was not very attentive to my sister and I. They were very attentive to the tables around us however. We had to ask several times for fresh plates and I order a sprite and it hadn’t come after about 25 minutes I had to ask for it again. When I asked for a straw I was told that I could have one but had to wait for the lady with the straws to come by the table. Again, waited a while and asked again. A few moments later someone emerged with an open straw(no paper or napkin covering it) in their hand. I’ve dined at Fogo several times over the past years and never haven’t experienced this level of poor service in a long time.

Was given our menus by one server, our drinks ordered by another server, and then no one came back with drinks or to take our order. We started serving ourselves. We were told multiple times that "everyone is our server" but then told by 3 different servers that "they weren't officially our server...our server was someone else that hadn't even come over. We love the food but the service has been like this the past 2 times we have come to this restaurant. We only come for special occasions so this really ruined it for me. If I'm paying $150 for our food and drinks the service should be better up to par. We will be taking our money and special occasion celebrations elsewhere.

My husband and I were pretty excited to try Fogo as we’ve heard good things about it from others. The service was excellent however it was super busy and loud. The meats were good but not seasoned as much as I would like. Overall it was a good experience but given the price I wouldn’t go again.

I've been to a few Brazilian steakhouses and Fogo does it best so far. They are the first to get the leg of lamb right and wow did they ever nail it. It's perfect. The seasoning was ideal, there's an excellent crust/sear, and the perfect cook temp. The beef offerings were all out of this world good and a medium rare piece was always available every time they came around...YUM.

The market table was great. We found some great cheeses and salads to accompany the meats. Also, the cheesy bread puffs (Pao de Queijo) , polenta sticks, and bananas were fantastic too. Everyone goes in with the plan of only stuffing their face with meats, but all the sides are so good it's impossible to resist.

If forced to find something small to whine about it'd be the parm crusted pork. It tasted great, but was a bit dry. In their defence, it's hard to keep pork from drying out without undercooking it.

Overall, I wish I could trade our local Brazilian steak house for a Fogo de Chao.

Seemed like staff wasn’t ready to open and food was not what is usually is. Service was amazing!!!! Filet was crunchy on entire side and hard to chew and that’s not how we remembered filet to be. The wait time for filet exceeded expectations.

Overall this was a good experience. I did feel as if the wait staff were not as attentive to our table. There was another table of men who looked to be recording for a show and the wait staff appeared to be huddled around their table. That would've been fine as long as my service was not neglected in favor of that table. I did not feel that way. As well, it took quite a few minutes (15-20) before any meat other than pork/chicken was brought out. I understand this could be due to cooking times, it is just an observation. I would return, but maybe for a lunch portion to bypass the hefty price tag.

My boyfriend went for brunch on a Saturday @ 11:30 am. It wasn't crowded at all, and felt like that was an IDEAL time to go. If you can skip the dessert bar, (some items for bruch; but not really needed with all the other food), we recommend going at this time. Very enjoyable and quiet.

The restaurant was extremely loud - we could hardly hear each other talking from across the table. The food was sub-par - although the price wasn't unreasonable. The service was not up to par, either. All in all, this restaurant does not live up to its' reputation.

Service was great, we made reservations and I felt we was seated in a timely manner. The waitress did a good job at explaining what to expect (this was my first time). The meats came out hot and fresh. The only complaint is, the higher grade meats wasn't available for everyone. For instance, the beef short ribs and ribeye, even after making several requests for beef short ribs I still was never served them.
