Wonderful experience! From the time we got there until our dinner ended the service exceeded our expectations. All of the food that we ate tasted amazing, was at the perfect temperature, and was very well prepared.

Family dinner. Extremely busy place especially for a 5:30pm reservation. During a Pandemic this is not a place I would return to.Extremely close contact and a salad and soup bar with no support from restaurant, just open to grab and serve yourself with a free for all with all guest. I have always enjoyed the chain but I am disappointed in the care free and lack of control for social distance.

We had an awesome experience at Fogo de Chao. The chefs special Wagu was by far my favorite dish, it came out on a hot Himalayan salt rock that allows you to cook the steak to your desired temperatures. The service was great instead of traditional one server per table to staff all work together in sections to ensure tables are serviced in a timely manner. Come hungry because to food is endless.

Service below par compared to previous experience. My guest suggested we go to Texas de Brazil next time. I agreed. Salad bar was ok but meat service extremely slow.

Our server was fantastic, She , the server, found out it was my birthday and suggested other than what we normally have when we visit. Her suggestions were great and resulted in a wonderful birthday meal. MY issue is that there was no comp birthday desert or group sing to make me feel special.

Of the three different restaurants around Jacksonville, I have found that this was the best Brazilian Steak House. It had the absolute best food, the fastest service, and the atmosphere was the best of all three for a nice peaceful date night. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Many meats on the menu, but were only offered a few. Same server repeatedly brought only one type of meat. I believe we were only offered 5 different types of meat total. What they brought was excellent.

Too noisy and crowded inside, not Covid safe.. We sat outside, asked for heater.
Food gauchos didn’t come out often enough outside, I had to ask numerous times. Mashed potatoes were cold! You should serve au gratin instead in a crock to keep warm.
No special recognition of birthday.
Plates should be cleared and changed between market table and meat services.

Christmas Day dinner didn't go as expected. We had reservations outside, I called to confirm earlier in the day and all seemed ok. When we arrived, they said outside was closed, yet people were there. We asked for manager and manager proceeded to seat us. Our waiter didn't do so well, in fact it seems they started working there that day. This is a $55 per plate restaurant... The wine spilled when poured, we didnt get water until after appetizers we're served, and those took a while. Though we know everywhere is short staffed, we still were greatful to sit together and enjoy a meal. When it came to desert, we asked and were told that there's probably one left and it's in a to go box. We then realized that we were close to the last ones to leave the restaurant. Check please!

It was great. The food was awesome. The hot food was hot and the cold food was chilled. Could have had more variety of steak sauces. Only one piece of meat was more rare than I would have liked.

Overall we felt that the whole dining experience was rushed, from the moment we sat at our table the staff started rushing us to make a decision on drinks and food choices. The food was not seasoned and basically did not have and taste. We were very excited to try this establishment but left disappointed. .

First time eating out with family in 2 years. Our first time visit to Fogo. Was excited to treat my 90 year old grandmother to Christmas Eve dinner. Everything started out great. First, those little complimentary appetizer rolls...Amazing. Market table was delicious. The table side meats were incredible. As the waiter was clearing our table I mentioned how much we enjoyed the dinner rolls, and since we had about 6 left, I asked if we could take them home in a bag. Note: We hadn't eaten all of them then asked for more, just didn't finish what we were brought. Our waiter said sure, he would bring us a box. A few minutes later a manager (?) came to our table and told us we could not take those rolls but were welcome to buy a dozen for $7.50. Seriously? We just spent over $300 here in one hour and we can't take the 6 rolls the waiter said we could have? May sound petty, but that alone is the reason why I will not come back here when there are other like options just down the road. Again, it's not like we ate what we were given then asked for more to take home. What was supposed to be a special evening out ended with that bad taste in our mouths. A better way to approach that would have been to inform his server that was not allowed, but that since he offered us a box, make an exception this one time. Hope future guests have a more pleasant experience!

Our waitress took the adults drinks, never asked my son for a drink. We ordered 2 cocktails and my husband Said I’ll have a glass of wine with dinner she said OK I’ll come back, my son ended up drinking water because our waitress never came back somebody else brought us our food and we didn’t see anybody else until the end when we needed a check
