I’ve noticed when I go that later the meat selection and speed is not good. When this place is busy it’s excellent. Every time I’ve been in there when it’s slow it’s been disappointing. I will absolutely still come back, hope it gets better.
We’ve always had a great experience at this Fogo’s location whenever we come here. The service is impeccable and they make sure you have everything you need to enjoy the experience. Yes it was a little loud, but it was on a Sunday and it was only outdoor seating, but we appreciate that they extended their outdoor seating area to behind the restaurant as well and with canopies for shade. We definitely can’t wait to come back again.
Our server was great and the food is delicious!
I normally have the best service at this restaurant and it’s other locations in SoCal, but on this past visit it was one of the worst restaurant experiences I have had in a long time in any restaurant. My main concern was the hostess was very unprofessional.
We came to celebrate birthday but it was 20 min to be seated, no meats came out for 20 min at a time, and the server kept spilling the tray in his hands on us - salad fell on us and corn fell on my husband. I never got a birthday dessert because we were there already for 2 hours, we needed to leave. The dessert was also not offered.
Great meal. Even with covid restrictions. Service was pretty good. No complaints.
Management was accommodating and thoughtful, table service chefs were prompt and professional, food was delicious and very well seasoned, and overall, we had a lovely experience.
Thank you and keep up the great work!
Birthday overall great
Service was a bit slow. Asked for chimichurri sauce several times & disk t receive it till halfway through our meal. Also asked for the sausage serval times and didn’t get it till the end of the meal, disappointing. The food it self was good.
Celebrated my husband’s birthday here. We had a great time! The service was great. Because of covid, there wasn’t a buffet of the cold food but the servers were pretty good of serving them to you. There wasn’t a lot of meat selection in my opinion. There were times when we had a wait and then they all came altogether. I also thought we were closely seated right next to the other table. But otherwise service was really awesome!
Amazing brunch experience with attentive wait staff.
Excellent food and value for your money! Great service! We’ll be back!
Food was ok, but the service was not there. Took a long time to refill drinks, and a long time to serve the meats
We're sorry to keep you waiting throughout your meal, as this should never be the case. Our team would love a second chance, so please visit us again.
Went here for my birthday. Disappointed as we paid a ton of money for the four of us and the food was just mediocre.
Dyan, we don't take your disappointment lightly. Birthday celebrations should always be memorable, so please allow us the opportunity to make this up to you in the future.
Great food, quick service, professionally kept dinning hall, professional attitude, tender & abundantly premium choices.
Its so good food and customer service special Eva
worst experience ever
We are truly disappointed to read that our team delivered you the worst experience, in your opinion. We hope you award us another chance to earn your satisfaction.
Love the food!!!! Love the Service!!!!! Loved the Garlic Stake and the cheese bread.
Valentine’s Day lunch was phenomenal, the cuts of meat were immaculate. The service provided by everyone was superb, there wasn’t a moment where we felt we needed a refill or a choice of meat. We left with our stomachs full and our hearts happy.
They need to bring back blue cheese, basil dressing and pickled onions ):
Our waitress was amazing and made the experience great!
It was my first time dining at this place and took my family for experience and to be honest I feel like staff were not very attentive. The whole experience was not all experience it felt like we were waiting for a long time for food and we got missed several times.. server would ask what is needed but no one would bring it after a 2nd or 3rd person.
Overall it was good. There is no access to a salad bar because of the situation with covid , and the waiter was bringing the same 4 salads to our table, so the variety of salad bar options were very limited. But the meats were exellent.
Not worth it with the covid restrictions. You are stuck waiting between sides and cuts.i should have waited till after these restrictions.
Abraham, we have tried our best to ensure that our safety protocols do not affect your experiences, so we apologize for missing the mark. We hope this doesn't stop you from a future visit.
Eating inside would have been preferred like others we noticed but since they worried about unacceptable guidelines put more heaters outside.
We always want to impress our guests, so it's disappointing to hear we fell short. It is our hope that you choose to award us another chance in the future.
Valentine’s Dinner with my love
Great dinner date for Valentines day. Very glad we could sit inside.
Great experience and excellent service. Staff are all around ready to provide help it a delicious and safe way.
When it gets too busy the meat stops coming around. So you sit there waiting until they remember for like 15 mins. After about 45 mins they try to kick you out by asking if you want dessert or the check. Food is good. Service sucks.
Enjoyed dinner, service was really as well as the food
Food was delicious, the staff is very friendly and attentive. I will definitely be coming back
Not what I expected. This is nothing in comparison to my experience at the Vegas location. Sub Par Orange County experience. I understand it’s covid, but we were seated outside in the corner of a tent which seemed to be the “kiddie” area. We were a party of two, looks like they seated larger parties inside. No ambiance, my menu was a crumpled up piece of paper. The service was on and off, had to wait for mashed potatoes and bread quite a bit when requested. Meats were so so, but the meal was not worth the price. I can go to Vegas and eat at a 5 star restaurant for less than $62 a person. I won’t be back.
Mitch, we are disappointed to hear we fell below your expectations, as we never want to let our guests down. We truly hope you return in the future.
Everything was outstanding. Without a doubt go for the Churasco experience.
I will definitely be eating here again. Everyone was so nice and the service was amazing.
Service was great! Food was delicious
Felt rushed when salad, potatoes, etc. were brought out all at once. By the time we were ready for the meat entree, the potatoes were cold. The rolls were not hot. The meat selection was wonderful and tasty. We were given a birthday dessert, which was lovely. It made the meal extra special, and that was appreciated.
