This was my first time eating here, the food was beyond excellent. The wait staff was courteous, friendly and always there when needed. I had the full experience, based on the reccomendation of our address. This was just great, I was able to taste all of the meat on the menu. This was a very good experience for my first time going there. I will definitely go back.

First half of the meal was great, then the service went downhill. I never got offered another drink. I waited 30 minutes for a server to come by and offer me a drink or dessert, never happened. We asked 3 times for more pork chops they never came. When it came time to pay our bill it took 20 minutes. Over all the food is amazing and you get plenty of it. I didn't get offered everything that I should of been offered (beef ribs). It was very busy glad I had reservations.

Computer was down so they lost our reservation. We were seated in about 20 minutes. Took 40 minutes to get our drinks at the table had to ask threee times. Our waitress disappeared after taking our drink order never saw her again. Not many gauchos serving meat waited a long time with button on green had to stop servers and ask them to get people to come to our table. It was one of my favorites but no longer

Service, food, and drinks were all wonderful!! This restaurant is extremely unique and definitely worth trying. The tables are pretty close to each other though, so don't expect to have a very private date night. Would recommend for any special occasion!

It appears they had brought out many extra tables and all the tables were far too close together. We could easily hear every conversation around us. Beyond that, they were not consistently bringing out meat and the selection was much less than normal. We were offered 8 different cuts of meat through our meal, which is far less than advertised.

The people at fogo made my Valentine’s Day special! They always made sure that meats were fresh and out frequently. I even tried keeping up with the meats as they brought it out but couldn’t lol. I would recommend anyone that loves steaks and meats like I do, to give these guys a visit.

My husband went to the restroom and saw a cook walk out without washing his hands, when my husband talked to a manager they told him "can't do anything about it, we have signs it's up to them to wash their hands not mine" so that seriously makes me never want to eat there again. Food has always been good and great service but now I'm worried I've had food with nasty hands touching it.

Very, very good. Don't be tempted by the Market Table. Fill up on meat and Cheese Bread. And then stuff the cheese bread in your pockets. And your purse. And coat pockets. That stuff is delicious.

It was really just okay for us. We didn't have one dedicated server, which became very confusing. Also, we weren't too crazy about the sides offered at the bar area. The cuts of meats that were offered were very few, compared to what was offered around after our meal, which we were disappointed about. We figured it probably had to do with having lunch there too early?

Every time I have eaten dinner at Fogo it has been absolutely fantastic. This occasion was for a girlfriends birthday, where most times I am with my husband. Management always comes by to check on my dining experience to ensure satisfaction and the wait staff is also perfection! I have and will continue to dine at Fogo and would recommend to anyone.

Valentines date together we are from out of town and drove in for the event. It was great food, and wonderful service. He evening was a little louder than we expected and this was our first time at the Kansas City Fogo De Chau. We were expecting a little more spaced out for the table seating and a more planned way of serving the meats. We received all the red meat and had to request a few times to get Chicken at our table. Food was delicious for sure. My favorite I finally was able to get my hands on was the Chicken Legs and of course the Brazilian Lemonade💕. Hugely recommend this place. Thank you we will be back again.

There was a family of 5 (3 kids 2 parents) sitting one table away. Each of the kids had iPads without headphones. We could hear the, very clearly, the movie the kid closest to us was watching. Not one time did the parents engage with their children but to flip their coast from red to green. We were disappointed a restaurant of this caliber allows the use of iPads without earphones. More disappointed in the parents that gave their kids iPads to keep them occupied instead of talking to them.

We had an excellent experience. We were both extremely full after, and the food was fantastic! The servers would constantly ask if there was anything specific we wanted, and if so, they’d send over the cuts of meat. The salad bar was exceptional, lots of great cheese selections, lighter salads, fruits and veggies. The rolls were so great as well. Will absolutely return...once we become hungry again..

Average experience. Not really worth the extra money and drive from Overland Park. There was food (large chunks) on the floor in front of our table, we were in the very back room in a corner and felt like meat service wasn’t very often (we only tried about 4 diff things). Food was good, but honestly not better than the location of another Brazilian place in OP. Probably won’t return. Nothing more special than our local Brazilian.

We were pleasantly surprised to be seated right away when we arrived, even though we had gotten our reservation time wrong and arrived almost an hour early. Food was excellent - although I would have liked the grilled vegetables more if they were not chilled. Service was great and the atmosphere was lively and cozy.

Waited over half hour before we got served any meat and then it was soo dry and bland, salad bar was so underwhelming. Then served one small plate of potatoes for a table of four that took a long time to come out as well! Went on rw which was probably the reason it was so backed up, but awful for what u pay for, I would recommend going to Em Chamas instead for better quality, ambiance, and service!

We didn't get seated until 30 minutes after our reservation time. When I tried to inquire about how much longer just to have an idea, the hostess was very rude said she couldn't tell me a time and just to wait. I kept trying to ask if it was going to be 5, 10, 15, 60 minutes wait just to know and she just kept giving me the same answer. It took me over five minutes of inquiring to finally learn that we were the next on the list, which is all I wanted to know. After that within five minutes, we were seated. She was very unfriendly and I am not a rude person as I have worked in the business and I know it can be chaotic at times and you get further with honey than vinegar! About a year ago, I went to the restaurant to buy 2 $100.00 gift cards and had to deal with the same hostess and she was just as rude. She certainly shouldn't be the face of the restaurant if she does not like to answer questions. The dining experience was simply awful. We were at our table from around 8:30 to 11:00 pm and we only had four gauchos approached us with meats the entire duration. Even though everyone in our table kept the tokens facing on the green side the entire time, so basically we paid to sample four different types of meat when the server told us we would have 12 different cuts of meats. The meats that we did get to try, were either way too salty or lacked flavor. All we got to try was top sirloin which was very salty, chicken breast which was hard and dry and I couldn't even chew, lamb meat which was ok and some mini chicken drumsticks which lacked flavor. The drinks were nothing special either. I understand it was restaurant week and it was busy but that doesn't mean we should be robbed of the amount of food and service we get. I was quite embarrassed to have suggested this restaurant to my group of friends. I certainly will not be going back.

Food and service were good. Salad bar was not as good as it has been in previous visits. Not sure if the restaurant skimped out because it was during Restaurant Week? Just wasn't as good as we all remembered. Meat selections were tasty and plentiful. Very attentive Gauchos. Wait staff was attentive but seemed stretched a little thin for the crowded restaurant.

Service was horrible for entire time. They did not honor our reservation time. They actually say people who did not have a reservation before they set my party. Once we did get seated, our server only checked on us once. The meat selections didn’t not come to our table often, even after requesting certain meats. Waitress dropped a plate on the customer behind us head so that was distracting for 30 minutes. The way the management handled the accident was less than acceptable. I overheard the conversations and was not pleased with how the handled the injured customer. I have been a long term customer for May years and have eaten there at least once a month. I will not be going back!!!!

We were sat near the kitchen, yet hardly any of the meat guys found our table. For $100, you'd think we could eat all the best meats this place had to offer. Not to mention, we were SUPPOSED to get restaurant week pricing. We come here every year for our anniversary. If this is the kind of service we get, we'll be finding a new restaurant to spend our money.

I made a reservation and the time given was for 10:30pm 1/19/18. Showed up on time and the first gentleman greeted my party and I which was 4 people total so it wasn't a huge party; with "we're closed for the night". We then told him we had a reservation and he proceeds to say he will get his manager. The manager shows up and says the same thing even after we show him the reservation confirmation. The manager then says we are more than welcomed to eat there still but that the meat selection will not be complete, since they have ran out of some meats because they couldn't get a hold of the distributor to order more meat. This is during restaurant week which is not a new thing. He follows it up saying the salad bar is fully stocked. We were not there for salad, we wanted to have meat. The manager did not offer any vouchers or offer to reschedule our party a different day during restaurant week. All that was said was "sorry". It seemed like he and the staff just wanted to go home. I understand that it's restaurant week and it's very busy but why would you not order more than enough food and why would you allow reservations to be made at 10:30pm and not be willing to honor it. Extremely disappointed by how the situation was handled.

Worst experience I have ever had at a restaurant. Do not got to this overrated chain restaurant. Watched a server walk out of the bathroom stall without washing his hands. Wait, it gets worse. He immediately walked to the bar, grabbed two drinks, PLACED STRAWS IN THEM, and yes you guessed it, went and served them to patrons. Enjoy, please don't mind the bacteria. I immediately notified a manager, who advised he "talked" to the waiter. What about the unfortunate folks that are drinking through contaminated straws? Not important I guess.

Reservations were at 8:30, we weren't seated until 9. Asked for our checks after dinner and our waiter literally disappeared for 35 minutes. Went to check in with the host, they were gone too. Finally our waiter showed up at the 40 minute mark so we could pay and leave. Horendous experience. 2 stars because the meat was good and I left full, but was reluctant to even eat there after witnessesing the carelessness with being clean.

I had been to Fogo a couple of times before & this was by far my worst experience there. We went this time because it was rrestaurant week & therefore we could afford another visit. They were extremely busy & very, very understaffed for the night. A couple of the meats that were brought to us were very undercooked & inedible. We saw several meats being served that we never got to try. Was not a pleasant experience, even for the discounted price.
