Arrived 10 minutes prior to reservation; seated 30 minutes after reservation.
Waited at the table for 10-15 minutes before someone asked if someone had taken our drink orders, they had, but no one returned with them.
Salad bar was not replenished well. Cheeses were depleted.
We had to ask for the side dishes twice before they brought them, and by then we had almost finished the meal.
Waited 20 minutes to get the bill.
Loved the grilled mozzarella with honey!
Reservations don’t mean anything. Everyone had them and waited just as long or longer!

Made a reservation for 730pm. Waited until 830pm before walking out, having not been seated yet. Used to go at least once per month - will not be back.

I have dined here on many occasions, and have never had anything less than impeccable service and delicious food, until my last visit this past weekend. We hadn’t been in a while so we decided to take my mother for her birthday. We waited on drinks. We waited on plates. We waited on sides. The food was great as usual, but for the price of the meal I shouldn’t have to wait on a

I’ve been coming to Fogo’s since it opened, at least once a month. It’s my go to place for business and personal meetings. However, my last visit was a disaster. Although you can pack the place with paying guests, the quality of service and attention to detail is greatly reminisced. It was entirely too many people seated at one time. Every inch of that place was seated, it was difficult to get around , replenishing food at the bar was not happening timely, we waited in select meats and one meat we never saw at all.

Missed the mark this time for sure!

Our dining experiences was impacted by a large table of diners. The servers and staff catered to their needs and basically left us to forage at the market table .

This is the second time we have been to Fogo. Both times the service was awful. We waited 20 to get an iced tea and my water was constantly empty. Dirty plates weren’t picked up and We had to ask for polenta and potatoes. This is supposed to be an upscale restaurant. For the price I should get way better service

We went to Fogo to celebrate my dad’s birthday. We had a great time, enjoyed the Brazilian meat cuts as well as the market table and feijoada bar. We paired our food with some brazilian lemonade. We had to skip on dessert because we ate too much. Our servers were very attentive and will top off our lemonades continuously, being our brazilian side dishes as well as direct our preferred cuts to us whenever we requested it. Will definitely come back.

Thus is a very well run and managed restaurant. On top of their high quality foods and beverages, everyone on their team is very attentive and efficient. This is our favorite restaurant when we come to downtown Indy for any event.

Our dinner was fine, until the end when the server accused one of the patrons of trying not to pay for a drink ($4) this woman said “I’ll take the soda off but I know you had two.” This was completely unacceptable and frankly ruined our whole dinner experience. We felt like all the servers were looking at us like we were trying to con them, when in reality he had only had one drink. It was a lot of fuss for a $4 soda that was not ordered. It was quite ridiculous.

Not as good as some other Fogo de Chão locations, but solid. Would have rated higher but don’t like the up sell that they do when people are walking around with shrimp cocktail. I understand that people may not want an appetizer, given the great salad bar, and variety of meats, but it’s still a turn off. Other than that the service is always good, and the food speaks for itself.

Overall it was a good experience. The only downfall was that my brother-in-law gave me gift cards to go have a nice lunch with a friend for my birthday. The restaurant would only honor one gift card at a time so even though I had $100 worth of gift cards they only honored $25 at first. They did allow my friend and I to split the check and they did honor another $25, it was just disappointing since there was $100 worth. The food was delicious and the salad bar had many choices. They also gave me a complimentary dessert for my birthday which was very nice.

Been to fogo many times. This time was terrible. Restaurant seemed over booked. Got stuck in back in the corner and had horrible service. Got my first water refill 45 minutes into the food. Didn't see half the cuts despite asking for them. Salad bar line was ridiculous. Don't recommend

The meat was very salty. No refill on drink. Waited almost two hours to be seated from reservation. The buffet didn't have what they advertise in photos. Didn't taste all the meat only 4.

After receiving rave reviews from family and friends, we were mildly disappointed with the food. The chicken offered was very dry, several of the beef options lacked flavor. The atmosphere is fun. The fried mozz cheese with honey was by far the favorite item for both of us dining. I feel like you are essentially "forced" to go through the Market Table prior to receiving any meat. There was a very large party in front of us and they basically wiped out the Market Table and it was slow to be replenished. It was a fun experience but we most likely won't go back.

Been here many times. Service this night was poor to say the least. Waited over 45min for drink order to be delivered. Servers for the most part rushed but came off rude due do zero personality. Even our host for some reason seemed to just not be into his job.

Always awesome no matter the State I have eaten at. I do wish they offered as much beef as they offered chicken legs? I never seen chicken legs offered before. I loved the different cheeses offered at the salad bar. I need to eat less of the wonderful little breads so I can enjoy more meat but they are so addicting.
I will always be a fan of Fogo
