Our server, Miguel, was awesome. Laughed at our bad jokes and kept close watch on us to make sure our needs were met. 10/10. We’ll definitely be back.

I have been here several times before and it was always amazing. This time it was not. Bacon wrapped beef were hockey pucks. Filet Mignon was tender but had a weird taste to it. Cheap meats were offered numerous times but had to ask for more expensive cuts such as filet and New York strip several times. Lastly we ordered desert. Creme Brûlée. It is normal super. This time it was just ok. Sugar glaze was not even and was burnt on one side. Strawberries on top were not ripe

It's disheartening to hear that we fell short of your expectations this time around, as we always want to maintain our top-notch service. We hope you give us another shot, as we'd love to earn your 5-stars.

Fabulous food. The filet mignon steak was so delicious. Also loved the lamb chops! This place is a meat eaters delight with so much to choose from and all prepared with excellence. If you have never been here, you have to try it out. The service is also excellent and the servers of the meat ask you to select exactly how you want your steaks prepared. This is a top notch restaurant!!

Even though we had reservations, we had to wait 15-20 for a table. The place was a zoo. It took 10 min to get a drink at the bar. Then when we were seated, the tables were so crowded together it was like a mouse maze and difficult to get between tables. The meat, bread and potatoes didn’t come around by us frequently enough. But when we did get it, it was fresh and delicious. The salad bar needs more attention. It was always out of 3-4 items.

Started off with a 25-minute wait after our reservation time because the host said they were behind. Ok, fine. So my fiancé and I went to the bar for drinks to kill time. I got an old fashioned (which was not made like an old fashioned should be) and she got an amaretto sour. Finally got to be seated and made our way to the salad bar, which was awesome as always. Loved the selection up there. Our server got us fresh plates and we flipped our cards to start having the various meats make their way to us. This is where things slowed down, we saw only 3 make their way to us in probably 15 minutes. Usually doesn’t take long for them to rush on over with almost everything. I think it was a floor manager who came to check on things and I told him we hadn’t seen much come over and he said he’d get that fixed. Sure enough, things picked up, so that was much better. Dessert was delicious as well, we had the Tres Leches Cake and a great way to cap off our anniversary dinner. Overall, good experience, will still keep coming back.

Too crowd and even if you make reservation a couple of week in advance, you need to wait too much, make it made reservations is worthless. The person before me didn't have any reservation and even though they sit him before us.
Food and service is really good as always.

Terrible experience. Waited for 50 minutes AFTER reservation time, bad service, pushing sirloin (offered at least 9 times, and hardly anything else). A complete joke. Why do people enjoy this? Never going back

Over priced, very busy and disingenuous servers that seemed liked they cared more about racking up a bill for tip money than making sure you had a nice dining experience.

Was excited to try Fogo at a discount due to restaurant week. We checked in and confirmed our reservation, then waited about 15 minutes to be seated. Waiter asked if we had been there before and we said no. Then he rushed through the process, leaving out that there were extra upcharges for certain things. We were disappointed to find out that the restaurant week "special" did not include their top of the line cuts that normally are included. I was even more upset to find that we were charged $7.00 for water when we got the bill - this was never disclosed to us. They came by with shrimp and other "upcharge items" trying to increase an already expensive experience. The restaurant was very busy, almost chaotic, and as a result, the noise level was too high to be able to have a nice conversation with my wife sitting directly across from me. The food was good, but not what I would've expected for the price. There are many other steakhouses that offer better cuts of meat at a lower price. After hearing such great things about Fogo, my wife and I were severely disappointed. We will not be back.

We went for reataurant week. I know they cut the menu down by 4 or 5 items but we where only offered 2 meats and pineapple. Sirloin and chicken leg. I dont enjoy dark chicken meat so I was stuck eatting just the sirloin. VERY disappointed. We even sat around waiting for more more meat options to come around amd we got nothing.

This was a diner out with my nephew and wife during restaurant week, I didn’t know that when I booked. We paid full price for the upgraded meat sections and they didn’t get brought passed our table. I have since learned that you need to ask for something of it wasn’t offered. I ordered the sea bass since I’m not a huge meat eater and it wasn’t anything special.
The staff was extremely friendly and valet service made parking easy.

We had to constantly remind the waiters around us for sides. We didn’t get bread despite asking multiple times until an hour into our dinner. It’s like they didn’t notice. Cuts of meat were dry and difficult to chew on. We had to ask for Cuts of steaks as it seemed like only chicken, pork and lamb were going around. Disappointed in my experience. Not worth it

Been to Fogo several times, this time the salad bar was better than usual, LOVED the fresh berries (strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and blueberries) also glad to see the Sundried tomato's back, they were gone last time I was there. We were a table of six and placed in a corner to the right. Didn't seem like we had many meat choices come our way. They were turn and service a large table that was before us and be out of meat by the time they finished that table. We did request a couple of times for different meats to be sent but it still didn't seem that many came our way. The restaurant week value for Fogo is awesome so I still be back.
