Food was tasty, but only saw 7 cuts of meat in total. Server never came back after we were seated (Table 19). We wanted to order drinks but never got the chance to. The service standards have gone way down. Even a manager didn’t check on us one time. Not happy with our experience for my graduation brunch!!

It was graduation weekend and I certainly understand that you cannot predict how long people will take to eat. HOWEVER, service was running over an hour behind. By the time we were seated, we could find no wait staff. We had to flag someone down for water. No one explained much at all to us and we finally just handed our payment to the hostess because it was a wait for everything. We were not the only people waiting. There had been people waiting over an hour and a half for a table. Our reservations were made several weeks in advance and I feel that maybe better preparations could have been taken considering it was a special weekend. This certainly did not feel like the celebratory dinner for my friends graduation that I had anticipated. I ALWAYS recommend you for special occasions and will probably be finding an alternate for the future. Food was delicious. Bar staff was super nice.

Very disappointed that our reservation to celebrate our son's medical school graduation on 5/15 was for 6:30 pm and when we arrived we were told they were 45 minutes behind reservation time. It was actually 70 minutes post reservation time before we were seated. Services was slow when seated and we waited at least 15 minutes after asking for our check to get it. I think they were way understaffed for the amount of reservations they had which made for a stressful dining experience for all, including the staff.

If you leave this place hungry, it is your fault. Great variety of meats on a spit that is cooked and seasoned to perfection. The buffet bar by itself has enough to satisfy your appetite.

This was our first time at a restaurant. My son chose this spot as part of a graduation from college dinner with his parents. We immensely enjoyed the food, the ambience, the selection and variety of all the meats and how they were expertly served. This is a real treat so come and enjoy and come hungry!

It was embarrassing. I brought someone here to enjoy a birthday lunch and the restaurant didn’t seem to want to serve us. Instead of bringing the food like they normally do. They expected us to know everything on the menu to know what to bring out. It was super confusing the salad bar. It was nothing pile I am used to at my weekend lunch spot Fogo - Scottsdale. It was not a Brazilian experience......

This was for my daughter’s 21st birthday...party of 7.

I have visited a number of Fogo de Chão restaurants around the world...including São Paulo, Lisbon, Dallas, and this one in Kansas City. All previous experiences were fantastic.

However, on this particular visit (10 Apr 2021 in Kansas City), I was very disappointed.

Food was great, but frequency of table servers was very low and sporadic...sometimes up to 15 minutes between visits. My wife and I both politely noted our disappointment to our waiter. It did improve briefly, but was not sustained.

We spent a fair amount on this visit ($600), while the experience was far below our expectations.

We have always enjoyed this restaurant, but based upon this experience, we do not intend to go back...nor will we recommend this restaurant to others.

Feel free to suggest the restaurant to contact me to discuss, if desired.

I was pretty disappointed to make a reservation and have to wait 45 minutes still...sort of defeats the purpose of the reservation. So by the time we sat down it was 8:30...the food bar had a lot gone and wasn't replacing very fast. We never got any of the cheese biscuit things. Took a long time to get our check. Just pretty expensive to eat to have all of that happen that way.

Reservations mean nothing here. You'll still wait an hour on a table. Then, unless you're a total Karen and demand so to the wait staff, you'll never see the good cuts of beef. Expect to see chicken, pork and sausage repeatedly, though. Just go to a decent steakhouse.

My first time after covid, salad bar there's a lady who gives you gloves to wear that way no one is touching the utensils with their bare hands, the food was amazing, the only thing I missed was the apple and chicken salad which was my favorite, other than that the food was amazing, I'd highly recommend it.

Made reservation well in advance of arrival time. We were at least 30 minutes past our reservation time when seated. Food was average and not of value vs money paid. Ambiance was above average. You are paying more for the experience of a Brazilian steakhouse than you are for food quality.
