    Arrived from my reservation and was seated at a table in the bar. The bar? There are plenty of tables available, so I’m not sure why they chose to seat us in the bar. Young inexperienced host staff. Asked to be moved to a different table, so we were walked all the way to the back of the restaurant to a large empty room that was not yet being used for the evening and sat at a table in the far corner. Literally completely alone in a room that was set for at least 100 or more people. No music. Dark and quiet. Again, why? Asked for another table and was finally seated in the main dining room with other guests. overall, the food is mediocre. All the cut we were served were extremely undercooked. I would confidently put them in the “rare“ category. Had to set a lot of the meats aside and not eat them. There were 12 different meats on the menu and we were served 4 in rotation during our meal. where are the other meets? Sat and waited and waited and waited for more food to come and didn’t get anything else. So the variety is just not there. Overall way overpriced for what you get. This is not a very good value restaurant. Giving you plenty of starchy fillers like bread and mashed potatoes and someone walking around with a cart trying to sell overpriced drinks. But where is the actual meat? This restaurant is just going downhill.

    Great evening of cocktails and food. Came here for a bourbon paring event and we really enjoyed ourselves. Service was great, cocktails were strong and the food was good. I really enjoy the ambience and atmosphere at this restaurant.

    We are regulars at Fogo, but this was not a great visit. Service was off and the food seemed to take forever to come out .

    I have gone to this Fogo location many times with my family and is normally a stellar experience. This last time was just bad overall. We had a reservation for 6:45PM and it was chaos at the front with people trying to check in and be seated. While we were standing there we had several groups get called for seating that had reservations after our time and I had to remind the front staff that we were waiting which caused them to finally get us sat. The waiter didn’t bring out the traditional bread, fried bananas or other items until I asked near the end of the meal. Huge gaps in meat service. Overall just a frantic feel. Not worth it last night. I will be returning as everyone has off nights. Hopefully next time will be more pleasant.

    Saturday at 7pm. even with a reservation, i still had to wait 30 minutes before seating. my table was meant for 4, but the cramped the 5 of us on it in the corner due to a full restaurant. because of how crowded, it was VERY loud. also, the self serve bar was always out of items. the staff couldn’t keep up with the demand. the meats coming out were fine, tasted ok and timely for more servings. it just seemed there wasn’t any tlc, just a rush to get food out in any capacity. overall, for $100 per person, i wasn’t happy with the experience. pro tip: they are open till 10:30pm… come at 8:30 or 9:00. there was half the amount of patrons witch could lead to a much quicker and better experience.

    Attentive servers, never waited to be offered entrees. Reservations highly recommended for seating. Noise level high, tablets close to another. Great dining experience.

    As good as any steakhouse I’ve tried in Brazil. My wife got upset with the tango music because it’s more Argentinian - just kidding. We would go here with more frequency if it were closer to where we live.
