Clean professional restaurant but food was mediocre even the meat(and I ordered the top meat they had)was not very good-disappointed and won't go back
I had been to other locations out of state so I should have known better but it was business meeting -and all had the same opinion so we will meet elsewhere next time

I found the restaurant quite expensive and did not get served meat very often, but the meats and the buffet are good quality and the place looks nice.
You need to be very hungry if you want it to be good value.

I’ve been to other Fogos and this is the worst. The don’t always have valet; we were also sat away from the main area and got the scraps of meat that was left from the main area. To say I was disappointed is an understatement.

We love Fogo the Chao in Chicago and we thought we will have the same amazing experience in LA, so we were thrilled to find a Fogo the Chao restaurant close to our hotel.
The restaurant facility in Figueroa St is just average, not impressive at all and the service is not what we are used to. The food and wine were fantastic, as expected.

The Salad Bar was wonderful. The meat was overcooked for my taste and bland. The waiter went beyond the call of duty to bring different cuts for me to try.
The Pineapple ended up being my steak tonight. I was very satisfied. You do not have to be a meat eater yo enjoy this restaurant.

On the other hand my husband was in heaven and loved everything. All of the servers were very attentive

Lots of selections at salad bar. I had the Gaucho lunch with a cut of meat. Both times meat was cut at table it was either too rare or well done. A little frustrating having to wait for the right temp meat. Love the cheese rolls, alway perfect!

we were celebrating a birthday with family and friends our server Rick was amazing, we had a very large party and he was very tentative to all of us as a whole especially explaining the menu and meat selections, very knowledgeable on the menu, will definitely love to dine at this location again

In all fairness, the meat offering amazing and their servers were exceptional.
We decided to splurge on an expensive wine we loved and only one server chose to refresh our glasses as we consumed our wine. We poured the rest ourselves.
No one checked in with us and a meat caballero had to request fresh plates for our second course.
We only recommend this restaurant if you have lots of time and don’t care if you have consistent service.
There was one gal who really stepped in to provide attention. We loved her...
We are generally generous with our gratuity -this time we downgraded our appreciation.
I don’t generally write reviews but this one had to be written.

Must have been an especially busy night...there were large gaps in-between the meats being brought to our table. When a couple of guys in our party looked like they were done eating, the servers seemed to interpret that as the whole table was done too. Not sure what's the point of having the red/green cards in that case.

The salad bar wasn’t kept full, variety was dimmer compared to other Fogo locations and the feijoada tasted old.

My 13 year old graduated from the Explorer Academy. Fogo is his favorite restaurant. Our Server Eric is always awesome as always. Can’t imagine dining without him. Food is great, service is great.

Love Fogo! Best Brazilian BBQ join in town! The DTLA location is particularly good. Service is amazing and the meat is extra good!

The meat servers were so good and fast here, I had to flip my sign to red: "no thanks" which I never do until I'm absolutely done eating (pic attached). This was my first time ever to take a break. (I resumed again of course).

I can't wait to be back!

I brought my girlfriend here for her birthday and the experience was amazing. We were constantly attended to, the manager ever personally visited with us to switch out our “graveyard” plates. At the end of our meal they brought out a complimentary cheese cake on a Happy Birthday plate. Can’t wait to return here, thank you for making our celebrations special.

Sign up for their eclub, they have periodic discounts per email (up to 2 per table). Order the beef ribs, lamb chops, and filet mignon. Ask for the chimichurri to pair with the lamb (if you're into that). Enjoy!

I’ve eaten many times with this establishment. The meal was a disappointment because they did not bring many versions of the meat to the table until very late in the meal after everyone had eaten. We had to request multiple times despite having our card turned over to green.

I love the brand. I've been to many locations but this one is the worst. They shouldn't accept 9pm reservations if they close the kitchen soon after 9pm. We felt rush to finished but we had to pressure them to cook new meat which they did but We had to wait 30 mins in the middle of our meal.
