We normally go to Texas de Brazil, but decided to try this place for our anniversary due to its higher priced menu and location. We figured it's got to be better, right? Sadly, most of the meat was too salty and tasted the same. And service was again, average. It took a while to even get our order taken. In fact, it took so long, we just decided to go to the salad bar before ordering. For how much we paid, it was not worth it for a mediocre meal and experience.

Made reservation and I had to wait for a table which didn’t make any sense, what was the point of making reservations for? The market table hardly had any fruits or side dishes when we got there. And to top it off my mother found a hair inside of there chicken salad. There meat were really cold whenever they came to our table. Last but not least they over charged me for an extra person. That really blew me off that they did that.I’m glad to know this is my first and last time, I will never come back!!

We had long long gaps with no meat and then three turned up all at once. That’s ok if you just want a plate of meat but if you want to eat some meat with your sides it requires a little better flow.

Can you please wait until he shows up with them after that time? Then we asked for cheese bread, which took him over 50 minutes to bring four small pieces of bread, not even two pieces of bread each. The Meat was so bloody and red most of the time that we couldn't eat most of it. Then we ordered desserts and got no spoon for the desserts and still waiting to get spoons; after at least 15 minutes of waiting for a spoon, we decided to get up and start looking for utensils ourselves till we found some. We have been to other locations and have never been as bad as the service at this Irvine location. Not worth the money!

Once inside, they took forever to bring out first round of drinks out and our waiter never came back to check on us. Another young lady helping out clean up was very helpful in getting us drinks and any other items we were missing. Lastly, the meat rotation was horrible. They came only 7 times to our table in a 2 hour span and 3 out of those 7 was the same meat we had already had. This was the worst experience I have had at fogo de chao and I’m been a huge fan and patron of this establishment but after this past visit I was very disappointed.

To say we made a mistake is an understatement, I should have taken the reviews of this location much more seriously. We were seated promptly after arriving for our 4:30 reservation and it was all downhill from there. The service is terrible, we left hungry as the meat was just not brought to the table. We saw four of the fourteen supposed selections in 2.5 hours and you get one little slice. My thought is I just paid 66.95 a person for a salad bar. Would have been better off at Golden Corral. We kept asking for meat to be brought to the table but it never showed. They sent the manager over and still no meat she asked if we were ready for dessert I said what would I want dessert, I haven’t even got to eat dinner yet, but she did give us a $33.00 discount that paid for Del Taco on the way home as everyone was still hungry. Fogo De Chao I don’t think I will ever come back. This experience left such a bad taste in my mouth. And I am sure I will get the lip service response to this review that they seem to post to all of their reviews, “we never want a guest to leave feeling disappointed, so we are saddened by your feedback “ blah blah, blah fix the problem Fogo De Chao your ripping off your customers and you all need some serious customer service training. I am quite sure this will fall on deaf ears at Fogo De Chao and they will post to contact the restaurant to discuss further why on earth should I do that, I talked to the on staff manager while at the table in the restaurant and they didn’t care then so why would they care during another phone call? If your thinking about eating here don’t, you work too hard for your money to let this greedy chain take it from you and toss you to the curb hungry and with less cash then when you walked in. Utterly Disgusted!

Their house drink was expensive and we thought was part of their package. The host was never mentioned that was a charge. We probably won't come back for a while, unless they change the quality of their meat grade.

They look dismayed/disinterested as well. Meat didn’t arrive as prompt/consistent. Food kept running out at the salad bar area (fruits like cantaloupe and the parfaits). We constantly had to kept asking for food and meat requests. The guy making the waffles burned every single waffles he made (they were black or a shade of black). Some of the servers were nice and helpful enough. Overall, our experience didn’t meet my expectations. I’ll give a benefit of a doubt and still give Fogo de Chao a chance in the future.

Definitetly disappointed compared to the general churrascaria service in Brazil and the standard of the chaine.

The meats come out quickly and there is plenty so I recommend to just take your time because they rotate frequently. The market salad/buffet had a wonderful selection. Not sure what was going on with the server for the table for drinks, but we had three different ones come over, but spaced very far apart to check on us. It took a while to get a second round of drinks. I’d go again but maybe for the lunch price since they have all the same options but less $$.

It was tooo long of gap between items. The salad bar was good. But location was odd and difficult to navigate to. There were tables blocking the way. Overall not a good experience and it was way too expensive and not good value.
