Excellent and interesting food. Friendly staff. The menu item called Experience decribes it well and it was very good. There were some disappointments. I was charged 3 dollars more per person for the Experience menu item than was listed in the menu. I called ahead of the meal to verify that there was not a surcharge on the day we dined. I didn't discover this until the next day when I was figuring out why the bill was so high. The servers were slow to bring refills of drinks and specialty meats. We had to ask twice. The food is heavily salted which is one reason it is tasty. Note that there is a 10 percent tax at this location.

We were celebrating my husband's 55th birthday and were very disappointed about the service. We were told that we will get to try 16 different meats. We only saw 5 out of 16 and had to wait for long time to get a piece. We paid $300 for 4 people for that poor selection and service! Never recommend to anyone!

This is unacceptable, Margot, as you should be served all of the cuts that are part of the experience you choose. When you're ready, visit us in the future.

Went for my Birthday and it was great! Tanner and Celeste were very informative, walked us through the menu and suggested the best drinks. The only thing that "cheapened" the experience was when we asked for salt and pepper, we were given "fast food" packets of salt and pepper so you had to tear them apart individually, which took time as I like a lot of pepper. I will bring my own salt and pepper next time as well as Tabasco sauce, since that came in a small bowl that you had to pour over your food, which can be tricky. Other than that it was fine.

The servers kept running out of food, and said they would return with more, and never did. This left people at our table without food for 15-20 minutes.
When they were serving they asked how we liked our meat, we asked for Medium and received Rare. This was a total bummer experience. Next time we wont be attending with such a large group. I have been here many times but never had an experience like this one.

We should be returning to your table with more options, Brendon, so it's disheartening to hear you were left so long without food. We'll be sure to keep this in mind, and do better in the future.

What started as a rocky anniversary visit ended up being a wonderful experience. When we first got to the restaurant, we were put right next to a very loud group and we asked to be moved because we couldn't hear each other. They accommodated us right away and moved us to a better spot. The waitress took our drink orders and left. We did not see her or our drinks for over 15 minutes. This was a Monday night and the restaurant was not crowded. As we were preparing to leave, a young waiter named John spotted us from across the room and offered to assist. When I tell you this young man was AMAZING. He explained to us how everything worked now with COVID. The food was good, but John's service was above and beyond. When he brought the tab, they had comped our limeades and we were offered a free dessert (which we declined because we were too full). If you're ever lucky enough to have John as a waiter, just know that you'll be in wonderful hands.

This place has a very cool, energetic atmosphere! My friend and I split a wagyu sirloin that was amazing and tender! The Brazilian non-alcoholic drinks are fun as well! And of course, the way they bring the different cuts of meat to you is great. Service is attentive. They work hard to make it a fantastic dining experience!

I'll keep this review short - the Wagyu steak rib eye melts in your mouth like butter and you should request Kyle for your server. He's phenomenal, and the food speaks for itself; you just have to go to experience it.

Not as many offerings of meats. We only had 3 same meats being presented over and over. Only when we kept asking did another option come. Meat was very over cooked and dry.
Maybe it’s time to stop coming to fogo

Fogo de Chao used to be about affordable casual meat fare.
Ok quality, large quantity buffet, decent environment type of deal.
I had sticker shock when Is saw a price tag that was more than double what
we paid in recent past and clearly what
premium 5-star steakhouses charge.

Price / Value ratio has sunk, unfortunately.

PS. Also we had great difficulty getting any meat less than well done
(and with a thick charred layer on the outside)

We eat at this restaurant quite a bit! This is the best place to dine. The meals are of high quality, the staff are so welcoming! We took a friend here for his birthday last night and Shaween our waitress was awesome. She made the birthday boy felt special with a comped dessert and candle. The staff here are very attentive. Great customer service every time.
