Delicious food, with sizzling meat brought and carved tableside how can you go wrong?! Fresh assortment of cheeses, veggies, fruits and salads at the salad bar... hot fresh popover style bread and carmelized plantains, garlic mashed potatoes and other tasty treats. Desserts are delivered with the most precise flavor and their appearance is perfection. Highly recommend.
My husband and I love Fogo SOOO much! We don't live very close to one, so we can only get there once every other month or else we would be there way more often! We have brought many people to experience the amazing service and food! Definitely something EVERYONE should experience in their life!
Delicious food, per usual! Super sexy staff! Wonderful all around!
While the food was very good, the service was not. We ordered a bottle of wine. Waiter spilled some twice on our table. No compensation. One person ordered a drink and took forever after asking a second time to get it (waiter unfamiliar with drinks).
Busy restaurant was noisy and long lines for salad bar.
Glad the food was good for the price!
Food was great
Service was incredible
We definitely keep coming back.
Wonderful experience and great place for a celebratory event.
Only "negative" would be: The tables are definitely packed in there which can be a bit uncomfortable walking back and forth to the buffet table.
Dinner was absolutely fantastic. It has become our favorite place to celebrate big occasions!
Excellent time, Excellent food, Excellent service! If you are like us and want to enjoy with loved ones, especially for a special occasion, this is the place--wow! Server Nick and company took good care of us during our birthday celebration. It was worth the $$$plurge! Thank you Fogo.
Heard great things, meat quality was average at best. Great wait staff though.
Love everything about this restaurant and everyone was marvelous
What an experience, Fogo never disappoint. Great concept! I love that there isn't any waiting for anything you need. I went with my husband and two kids and the boys were so excited that they started with meat right away. My husband and I visited their amazing market table. They had imported meats, cheeses and vegetables. Something to try is their delicious heart of palms and also the seasonal salads are super good. Very impressive! I couldn't get enough of their watermelon feta cheese salad! I told the manager how much I loved it. Giant beans salad was pretty good as well, very unique. Some hot dishes were really impressive as well, loved the soup and the beans.
The service is the best I have ever seen. The servers were so great with my boys, engaging with them, made them feel very special. Everyone looked happy to be there, especially the gaucho chefs, very busy night and They were very attentive and engaging. They come to the table and offer you a cut a meat with the biggest smile. The parmesan pork was a favorite of the kids, had a chance to try some new items, pork belly and grilled cheese, what a great addition. My husband feel in love with lamb chops again, super hard to say no to those, Super good. My favorite was a cut they call the house special, picanha. It was thinly sliced and it had a little fat around the outside, it was absolute perfection. Filet mignon was also a big hit of course!
The entire staff was very friendly, we felt very special , very accommodating restaurant and hospitality is top notch. Can't wait to go back!!
Food was great, the atmosphere did feel a bit too crowded. Otherwise, service was top tier.
We celebrated our son’s graduation and birthday with dinner here. Even though we arrived early, we were seated immediately. All of the staff were very accommodating, and informative, but Konor stood out. Thanks for making our dinner fun! The food was excellent.
My boyfriend's birthday
Fago de Chao was very clean and the service was consistent and high quality. The food was all very fresh, the selection was amazing and there’s more items I’d like to go back and try!
Wonderful place to eat
We enjoyed ourselves for a combo Mother’s Day & Anniversary celebration! It was busy for the holiday, but they are able to handle a big crowd. Love how to staff truly work together for a great customer experience!
We have been to other Fogo's in other cities, first time in Minneapolis. We were very disappointed - after being there an hour and asking many times, the lamb chops finally made it to us. The sirloin had no salt and the lamb chops were so salty they were inedible. We also had to ask multiple times and wait quite a while for the filet and rib eye. While the service was friendly the place was clearly chaotic, eventually I ate salad. Also surprised that salmon was an additional entree, first time I have seen that. The best part was the chunks of meat on the floor next to the table when we arrived - no one ever picked them up and finally right before we left my husband leaned down and picked them up with a napkin and placed them on the table. Seriously it was so disappointing that we even left the coupon for an free lunch/dinner on the table.
Most definitely will come again.. food was amazing
We had a great time! The food was great and the service wonderful! My husband loved the lamb chops! I love the "salad" bar!! So FRESH and delicious! We will be back!
I have been going to your establishment in the Minneapolis location for many years. I brought my mother on Mother's Day. We only received only 4 cuts of meat, I had a server spill a plate of mashed potatoes on me - didn't receive any kind of compensation etc. it was a very poor experience since we were paying the Dinner prices but were there for brunch - of which the buffet always seemed to be empty. Not a good experience.
I've been many times & I usually really love it. I'm unsure if it was due to Mother's Day that the service was poor or what...
I asked for sauces for the table they never came out I asked again and they only brought them for me, I requested the lamb-chops for my son they took over 30min to come to our table, another guest & I had our coaster on green and received no meat for a LONG time, the parmesan pork never came to our table at all, and it took almost 35min to receive more biscuits. I really felt like I did not get my money's worth at all and it was not up to par especially for trying to celebrate a special holiday. I'm sure I will go back because my family likes the food but not for some time.
We went for the 2019 Mother's Day Brunch.
1. The varied "meatsa" selection and quality was great, however, we definitely had lonnnnggggg waits for some foods such as the beef ribs and the lamb chops.
2. Would recommend the Brazilian Steakhouse for someone who was going ONLY for the meatsa, however, the Value was not there for most people, as offerings such as the Shrimp cocktail and all of the desserts were only available ala carte.
3. No complimentary appreciation/recognition to the Mothers was included in the brunch price, either, such as Champagne or Mimosa. The previous appreciation/recognition is a rather typical offerings at other high-end establishments that have Mother's Day brunches.
The Net: The Value was not met.
Outstanding mothers day food experience. Fresh salmon was the best I have ever had
Lex and Jordan took great care of my family and friends. We wanted for nothing! The whole experience went above and beyond what I had hoped. Our 5 and 7 year old were happy enough that we could all relax - and that is priceless.
Had a wonderful dinner last night due to the staff. Our server Miguel was outstanding and so accommodating.
The waitress wasnt too friendly and seemed to be very rushed. The lemon pepper was very dry. The salad bar, desserts and drinks were the best part.
Service good, meat not 5 star but good salad bar best ever. Overall I really think that you are very overpriced. I had a salad and a couple of cuts of beef. 50 plus dollars and no dessert. I would say $35 would be more appropriate.
First time visitors and horrible experience . Would never recommend to anyone !!!!!
Miguel our server was great! Great service and answered to our needs perfectly. He made that personal connection with the table giving a few laughs. Such a fun night! He even made my sisters graduation special with a dessert on the house!
Seating request honored - corner table for 7 for a Birthday celebration.. great salad bat and meats! Recommend Parmesan pork tenderloin and house special steaks. Allowed to linger over dessert. Pricey— and hard not to over eat!
I think a dessert bar should be included in the price
We visited with friends who were on the keto diet. They really enjoyed the food and appreciated how well they were able to follow their meal plan. The waiters are very attentive and eager to get the right cut of meat to ur table. It’s a great experience.
I have been to Fogo with my family many times and have had great experiences. Our last visit, celebrating my daughter's birthday, was less than satisfactory. One waitress introduced herself and took our drink order, then another waiter stopped by to check on us and give us water and that was the last time any wait staff stopped by to check in. Our plates were picked up and we were offered meat per usual, but no wait staff until we flagged a random server down at the end for our bills, which we then had to wait quite awhile for. Very disappointing visit, especially considering it was not busy the day we visited.
The food was excellent as always. We were able to request particular cuts of meat from the menu without much difficulty. The salad bar has changed with some excellent options and fresh produce. Worth the money.
We went there to celebrate mother's day and the staff was amazing. Great food and we went early so there wasn't a crowd. We would definitely recommend this location.
Likely a fluke (3 stars), place was jam packed, probably prom and nice weather triggered too many people out and about, a loud ambience, where lines to buffet were long, variety of meat just ok. And servers were trying to keep up.
Had not been here since the remodel, very nice lunch, we had a wonderful meal, thanks!
