This experience took me back to happier times in my childhood where we would go out on Sunday after church to the smorgasbord with choice of all types of meats, poultry and fish and of course sides to go with them and others to season and add flavors without using sauces (hot, bbq, etc.).
I thoroughly enjoyed all of your red meat selections and ate these every time they came around. Also the 2 types of lamb had me bleating like a well fed sheep. 😉
Look forward to many returns to this restaurant and will venture out to others on my travels.
Exceptionally friendly staff, great service and food.
A wonderful family Easter dinner.
Amazing experience, our waiter went above and beyond to assure we were enjoying ourselves through the night. His attention to detail made it possible for us to enjoy ourselves up until the time we left, we will definitely go back and ask for him.
We knew we liked the restaurant but he made it a great experience!
The food was ok but the service was horrendous! I thought (based on several reviews) that Fogo de Chao would be the ultimate Brazilian BBQ experience. Unfortunately, the service was horrible. I have been to several different Brazilian BBQ restaurants and have always enjoyed the quantity and quality of the meats they offered. However, at Fogo de Chao the meat servers rarely came by our table to give us any meat. We had requested (several times) a specific meat and it took them forever to get it to us. This was the first time I had been to a Brazilian BBQ restaurant and left hungry! Additionally, our waitress was initially very polite and helpful but after a while she was nowhere to be found. She had told us that the wait staff was "team oriented" and any of the servers would assist if we needed anything. However, on TWO different occasions we tried to flag down another server (since our waitress had gone AWOL) and we were completely ignored. We had to complain to the manager about the service. Although he did comp our meal, we still spent WAY more money than we would have and was extremely dissatisfied with our experience. We will NEVER patron another Fogo de Chao based on this experience.
Meat was melt in your mouth worthy. I took my boyfriend (his 1st time) for his birthday and he is already , ready to go back.
Had fun and tried lots of steaks. It’s my second time there in one month. Highly suggested for anyone who wants to get together with friends and enjoy prime steaks and drinks.
All the meat contained way too much salt.
Love this place! the staff are great, the food is fantastic.
I have eaten at Fogo many times. This was the worst service I have ever seen. They smashed our table next to another where the meat servers could barely get to us. I had six servings of meat the whole time. Very bad
Incredibly slow service. Not all the meats came by, I had to ask for meat. The types of meat for a Brazilian steakhouse wasn’t that great either. A true Brazilian steakhouse brings food a lot more frequently. Bill came in incorrectly by over $100
the waiters were not professional. e.g. one steak dropped to the floor and i asked 3 times to remove it. after 30 min it was still there. they had no clue how to present a bottle of wine - no tasting sip, but immediately the glasses were pured, etc.
I have been to a lot of Fogo’s. This location was the worst of them all. We had to wait 15 minutes to be seated. The service was absolutely horrible. We had to ask for drinks, replacement plates and the check. Was there on business and was terribly embarrassed!!!!
The food was good but the meats were too heavily salted.
Fogo’s Is fun but not great value for money.
This was an amazing experience! The waiters were professional and well dressed, the ambiance was spot on and the food let’s not forget the amazing delicious grilled meats! Well seasoned and cooked to perfection! Thank you for this experience
I love it thanks
Outstanding food, service and atmosphere! Please open a restaurant in the Inland empire!
Service was ok but not stellar
Rotation of waiters with various cuts of meat was happazard that evening
Maybe better next time!
Staff and food were great, as always. We went for a group birthday celebration and the staff was very accommodating and attentive
Excellent salad bar with one meat dish added. Food was outstanding and service as well.
All of the food was fresh and delicious. We sampled several cuts of beef, as well as lamb. The flank steak was unexpectedly tender and flavorful for the particular cut - we asked for a second helping! The famous cheese balls were more like mini popovers - I could have eaten a dozen (but didn’t).
Service was excellent all the way around.
Hostess warned short staffed. Half of restaurant closed. Rest jammed with too close tables resulting in collisions of servers. Had to complain to get a single offer of meat after 20 minutes and cards green. Over 60% offerings never arrived. Two special orders never appeared. I was a regular for years so I knew what to expect. Twice had to pile and clear our own dishes. Silverware missing and when taken never replaced. For the price this was a disaster. Would never attempt a special occasion again at this location.
Date night! Was good! Busy but decent service!
Service is not as great as what it was before. We had to ask multiple times and multiple people for simple requests. The wait staff kept forgetting our orders or requests and flagging down a server was a feat as well. Complaining does no good as the staff seems entitled to their positions and dont really care about giving guests a good experience. Not sure what happened to this Fogo, but pretty disappointing. Not coming here again.
Had a great anniversary dinner. Thank you!
made our anniversary a great ending. thanks to all the staff.
Service was amazing. Loved when multiple servers/workers asked specifically what we wanted and how we wanted our meat cooked.
Fogo has become mediocre. This was our first time visiting the downtown LA location and it really wasn’t worth it. The service especially was horrible. The wait staff was seen chatting amongst theirselves while dirty plates sat at our table, our water needed to be filled. We ordered a bottle of wine and had to fill our glasses the entire time. When I go to a fine dining place that charges $62 per dinner, I expect exceptional attention even if the food is mediocre. I definitely won’t return. There’s a new Brazilian steakhouse opening downtown and I hope that their service, food and value exceed this. I don’t know if it’s because we are people of color but the wait staff (with the exception of one person) did not really seem interested in offering good service. Also, they need to revamp their sides options.
The service was excellent. The waiter was very nice and courteous.
Loved the experience and ate a lot of meat that was perfectly cooked!
A must go to place. Meat lover paradise. Good atmosphere. I have never had a bad experience at this place. Salad bar is good as well. Wine and liquor variety is top notch. I do consider this place high end, so go on a special occasion. What I like about this place is that even though it's a great place to eat a variety of meats and vegetables, the staff is friendly and they dont make you feel intimidated. It's a casual setting, and it feels that way when you're there. So please do yourself a favor an treat yourself to this great eatery. You wont regret it.
From the beginning it was excellent. Made reservation and ended up getting sooner. They were able to accommodate us. Bar drinks were good for the price. The food was so flavorful. One our guest only eats well done meat and they would come back with meat just how she likes it. I will come back whenever I’m in town again.
Tasty food with good service. Love the cheese bread and lamb.
My Mom’s Birthday was a complete success. We loved the food and the service. My Mom is still talking about it. We will definitely come again.
It was our first time at Fogo de Chao, never going back. After being shown to our table and heading to the bar to pick up some sides, my lady and I waited over 15 minutes after being seated for a churrasquero to pass by and offer any kind of meat (yes, we had the chip flipped over to the green side the entire time). Then another 15 minutes (of flagging someone down) passed before anyone asked if we needed anything, plus a few more 10-minute intervals waiting for more meat offerings. Most of the staff seemed very low energy during our visit. Even though the quality of the food is excellent, my lady and I could not wait to get up and leave the restaurant due the lack of proper service. For $166 USD on a dinner for two, I could've brought my business elsewhere. So much for a special romantic occasion, what an embarrassment...
It smells like a gym locker room in the dining area for some reason. I don’t have that experience at the La Cienega location. 🤷♂️
Their customer service is very nice and organized. The server of meat was very friendly and his service was very customized based on the requests.
For many years we have visited several Fogo de Chao locations but this one is not at the standard level of the company. As a matter of fact, it’s the worst. They didn’t offer the usual variety of steaks and when we asked for something specific (for example picanha), they didn’t bring it. Service very poor. I’ll start trying other Brazilian restaurants.
The food was outstanding as well as the service. Lots of choices at the salad bar and the hand cut chicken was delicious.
Manager was outstanding kept checking on us the chefs where on point with the food.
