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!!!!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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. 🤷‍♂️

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.

This is one of our favorite restaurants. The staff recognizes our family every visit, which makes the experience more enjoyable. I have a couple of suggestions. First Adding carpet to around the bar because It can become very slippery and is a liability. Second offer a variety of breads to accompany the spreads and cheeses. Lastely I would recommend changing the soup variety more often. It's been lentil or bisque for a few years.
We have experienced many celebrations at Fogo and we continue to make this a family favorite . Thank You for the hospitality. We love Jimena and all the STAFF in LA.

Nice decor and good location close to L.A Live. We didn’t get a first good impression as we were greeted by the hostesses. Not friendly at all. It definitely seem they didn’t enjoy their job. We saw them criticizing a couple of clients that came in. Very unprofessional but again they are very young. However after we sat down out server Jimena did make it worthwhile. Very friendly attitude and made very good recommendations about the menu. Might come back some day.

Our group visited Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse prior to watching the Kings vs Bruins game. There were six of us and the wait staff were very attentive to each persons needs. We were at the restaurant for about 2 hours and never felt rushed. The food was very good and the wine list was on par with the food. I will make this one of my go to places prior to any function in the downtown area.
