Food was excellent. The attention the management and staff gave to all 6 members of our dining party was exemplary. Have had Thanksgiving dinner at other Brazilian steakhouses in the past and there was no comparison to tonight's meal.

Came to Fogo de Chao in Jax with a buddy for thanksgiving. Service was absolutely top notch at the bar and on the floor, food was fantastic. I’ve been to this Fogo 3 times now and they’ve all been amazing experiences. I’ll definitely be back before too long

This was by far my best restaurant experience, for us both. We literally looked at each other and said we haven’t yet been to a place that can top Fogo De Chão & I’m not sure we ever will. The experience & ambiance combined with the service make such an impression.

It.was.terrible. From walking in the door and being taken to our “reserved” table that I specified I did not want to be in the middle of the walk way, yet the table was dead center of the walkway, to being asked if we wanted to sit outside due to the wait bc we didn’t want the table in the walkway. We declined and then immediately taken to a table near the edge of the back. Our server greeted us and took our drink orders. Brought them fairly quickly and my glass was dirty. He brought another and then offered us a Wagyu steak. My husband ordered the steak. An hour into the meal and the steak still hadn’t arrived and our server had not come back to check on us at all in that time . Anytime any of the members of the party asked for well done meat, they would shave the crust off and leave. One dropped meat inside a member of our party’s purse. The steak finally arrived and the person serving it spilled extremely hot grease on a member of our party’s arm and dress. No apology. Our server never returned. We asked a manager for our check. He sends a different server over. Our server walks by and talks to all other tables except ours. Finally comes over and asks if someone brought our check. Nope. A different server brings the check and asks how our experience was. He listened and then asked for a military ID so they discounted our meal and we paid. Experience was absolutely TERRIBLE!!!

We have been to Fogo at least once a month since it opened. We have always had stellar service. However, we brought a group of friends and family with us the other night and the service was horrible. We ordered a pitcher of sangria and other cocktails that were not cheap, but our server forgot to put them in. We easily missed out on $100 worth of drinks. One of our placesettings was missing a set of tongs. We requested them several times but our server kept forgetting to bring us tongs so we had to share making it very awkward each time a gaucho came around. When asked if we would like anything else we requested a certain item. After 20 minutes of waiting on the item we requested it again. An additional 10 minutes later we found a different server and requested that item, and even asked if that server would please ensure that it came to our table. We ended up getting the item after we paid and we’re getting up to leave. It was more than 40 minutes and at least three requests for that item before it actually came. Additionally, we we’re constantly running out of ice water and had to make multiple requests to remind our server that she was supposed to be getting ice water. She kept responding, “I’m sorry, I just keep forgetting. “ that’s definitely not what we’ve ever experienced at Fogo before. Cause and what made it disheartening was that we brought eight of our friends with us to share how much we love this place.

​After hearing all the hype about Brazilian steakhouses, I knew I had to judge it myself. Red meat is my favorite food to eat because not only is it delicious, it’s also high in creatine and vitamins. Located in the St. Johns Town Center, Fogo De Chão is a short ride for a taste of Brazil. I made my reservation through the “Fogo De Chão” app, which made booking a reservation effortless and let me view the full menu, and even pick what I wanted to eat. I pulled up to the restaurant and was greeted by a very friendly man offering complementary valet service. Subsequently, the door was held wide open as the hostesses greeted me with kindness and showed me to my seat. The setting of the restaurant was elegant with a mix of Brazilian culture which really elevated my dining experience. At Fogo, the servers give each person green and red paddles, with the green paddle letting servers know that you would like more meat. I started my feast at the salad bar, which included every possible topping I could think of. The crisp romaine lettuce topped with thick dollops of mozzarella and balsamic dressing was absolutely delectable. Before I could even finish half of my salad, a waiter approached my table holding a gigantic skewer of lamb chops.

Out waiter literally argued with us about ordering and availability of add on crab legs, then when delivering the $40 cluster of legs, no butter, no utensils, no wipes.

The meat, which is the staying point was good, even above average with the right cut. But the right cut was 1 out of 7 or 8 cuts of meat.

Food was great! I do personally think it is over priced for what you are getting but a good meal for sure. Meat carvers were a little pushy even if you had the card flipped to red. Overall a great meal and fun experience. But be prepared to cough up some big change for decent steak.

Great food. Got the Wagu on a salt block and it was amazing. The salad bar/hot bar was very good also and well taken care of. There was a VERY loud group next to use that ruined the experience a little, but that had nothing to do with the restaurant.

Meat delivery was sparse. Had to ask several times for additional food. Seems that the quality of the meat has declined over the last several months. Cheaper cuts?

Spent $400 on two bottles of wine for 4 people, you would think that with a high dollar table you would get service that is at least on or with chili’s.

Very disappointed.

Disappointed on food, steak that served are all about sirloin and lambs.

I don’t like the way they do the bill also. We ask for separate check and told us that you can split the check. How about if we did not order same thing which we did not.

My husband did not even get the Birthday cake.

I don’t think I will go back again.

We went out on a date night. The staff was friendly and everyone was wearing protective gear. There was a cocktail island that floated around the room serving drinks at preference. There was hand sanitizer and social distancing practiced. The salad bar was delicious and was not overcrowded. I felt comfortable being out and enjoying dinner. Everything was delicious and the experience was great as expected. I would return - this time I might sit outside since the weather has cooled down. Beautiful location, friendly staff, and delicious food!

We've been going back to Fogo de Chao because of the cleanliness, the service and the food. I even brought 3 friends of mine 2 weeks ago over there. It became my husband and my fav place to eat. I love the salad bar the most because of the apple salad my fav and the bread. Foods are excellent. 5 stars from me. Keep up the good work.

Very crowded and definitely no social distancing. We sat waiting for meat to be brought around to our table for 20 mins before we called a server to ask. They also failed to give any of the side dishes until before we were done with the meal. Only 4 different types of meat came around to us while we were there.

Fogo de Chao is a wonderful experience, overall.

The food is delicious and the service is outstanding - and one expects to pay for all of it.

However, when our waiter offered the nightly "special" of a table-side New York Strip, cooked/served on a 500-degree (?) stone, it would have been nice if I had been told that adding the table-side New York Strip would tack on an additional $120 to my bill.

This seemed a bit misleading - if not dishonest.

The normal selections of meat, including New York Strip, which are served by the "gauchos" are all outstanding, and more than enough for anyone.

A simple, "Of course, Sir, adding the table-side New York Strip will add to tonight's bill" would have been sufficient.

At that point, I could have followed up with another question, and then made an informed decision about whether to add the table-side New York Strip or not.

Then, at least, I wouldn't have been surprised at the end of an otherwise very enjoyable evening when a (much) larger than expected bill was delivered.

It will probably be a while before my next visit.
