Extremely busy. Waited 15 minutes past reservation time to be seated. People packed together literally like sardines. Extremely uncomfortable, no room to move. The service was slow as molasses and unresponsive. Had to ask for meats several times, even water and drink refills. Was almost impossible to get a piece of meat. Not even close to the experience I’ve come to expect from FOGO. Lots of different steak houses in DT these days. Time to explore something new. Disappointed that FOGO has become what I experienced above.

Celebrated my birthday here, Saturday night was very crowded, waiters are very welcoming but you have to wait too long to get enough meat for larger parties. Overall it was good but would not recommend it for large parties given there is not enough meat on one skewer for everyone at the table. The desserts were amazing!

Tried to seat us in the back when I specifically said in the reservation requests in the front. They dropped a knife on me while bussing tables & we found a file in our beverage. The same cuts of meat kept coming to the table & we had to request other meats instead. I’ve had better experiences. What a shame since we were celebrating mine and my brother’s birthday.

I had such an amazing experience at Fogo de Chao with my family! My sister and I were celebrating my mom’s birthday. My mom has been trying to come to this restaurant since we were kids, and I was finally able to bring her wish to life on her birthday. Anyway, we get there and the host and every single person working there gave this welcoming and positive energy. We got seated and our waiter Diego was great at breaking down the typical program at the restaurant. The buffet ranged from fruit and salads I was shocked I didn’t know what to choose! Then the steak and pork was being presented to the table and you just couldn’t say no! The steaks and pork were juicy with the perfect amount of salt. Moises was giving the upmost customer service I have ever experienced at a restaurant. He asked what my mother liked for dessert and I told him tres leches cake is her favorite. Let me tell you.. that slice of cake was delicious!!! I have never tried anything like it!! All in all Fogo de Chao is the spot for a date, special occasion, or even just a night out. Definitely recommend and I will be back. Thank you Diego and Moises for everything!!!

There weren’t many options at the salad bar. The beans and rice station was unkept and messy. For the price, I would expect much more. All of the meats were very salty and there wasn’t a big variety of meats. We have visited a different location and were expecting the same quality as the
San Diego location. Clearly it wasn’t even close!

Haven’t been to the LA location in many years. I was at the Irvine location few months ago and have a great time. When I got to this location I was slightly disappointed at how crowded everything was. The Irvine location is very spaced out with plenty of room. We had to wait few mins for our table to be ready. We grab drinks at the bar which was very fairly priced. The host called my name for us to be seated. We got full experience as we normally do. We had more selection of meats then I remember having at the Irvine location. Which was a surprise to me, cause I asked the servers and they said all locations have the same selection. I didn’t have the Parmesan pork last time nor did we have the fried cheese with honey. Both were spectacular. We order few more drinks and had a great meal. We got 4 creme brûlée and one was on the house since it was a birthday. I am a big creme brûlée fan and Fogo has the best I have ever had. I first tried it at the Irvine location and this location didn’t disappoint.

The quality of meat is not good, meat is doesn’t have flavor, Very few selection of meat, worst skirt steak, meat were poor quality, very tough meat. Serving of meat is very slow. Worst churrascaria steak I ever had. Wasted my money. Greenfield is way better and less expensive.

Food was great. Service was mediocre, considering we were paying for all you can eat. We must have asked 10 times for a particular food item and waited over and over. On the whole, staff not very attentive even though we were there early in the evening when they were not crowded. Frustratingly, several of the servers breezed past our table with food without stopping even though all of our cards were green-side up.

Overall not a bad experience, but considering the cost I would have expected more attentive service.

The offered meats in the Churrasco Experience were delicious! While our waiter was nice, my brother and I were not serviced for over 20 mins regarding refills of water or replacement Guarana. When a separate waiter was flagged down, he then advised there wasn’t a specific waiter as the area is serviced by all waiters and waitresses, although not one stopped at our table. All this aside, it was good food and worth the price. Will likely visit the one in Beverly Hills going forward due to lack of service.

Not sure what was going on, but I had an awful time last night. Seemed like the restaurant purposely over booked themselves and could not keep up with the capacity. I had a reservation for 6 set at 9 pm, checked in and saw that there was at least 10 parties of people waiting. We were finally sat at 9:30, quickly ordered wine with the waitress (as I assumed we wouldn’t see her again), then waited another 15-20 minutes before any of the servers came by with a skewer. It seemed as though the same tables were getting served while we sat and waited. By the time the skewers got to us there wouldn’t be enough to go around the table of 6. We only got to try 4 of the different meats as the servers were struggling to feed the entire restaurant. For the type of money I spent ($680), the service was just plain awful. You get better service at Golden Corral (and that’s saying something). Will never dine here again and I’m disappointed, because I have had great experiences in the past.

The food was basic. They say 16 different cuts of meat but we never saw that many. The desserts are terrible, plz don’t get the lava cake it’s awful. The Brazilian alcoholic drink was really good and that’s it. Will never go back.

We enjoyed it immensely. However open table where the reservation was made had the price from $31-50. Actually 2 sites had that price. I believe the price for each person would be $50.00, before beverages and taxes. However, to my dismay the meal for 2 was $127.90, not $100.00. Not a problem, but surprised base on what was listed on a credible website. I will return with family, now I know what price to expect.
