The remodel was nice. Restaurant opens at 11:30am arrived & seated by 11:40am salad bar was not set up, no serving tongs. Meat is very red if you order medium/medium well you get the burnt crust, unless you get the cubed filet Minjion. Plates were taken away at the end of the meal & waited 20 minutes for the check making me late for my next meeting.

Been here at least 5 times over the past few years. You come here for the steak and meats. Excellent as always. But this time it was slow in coming. Maybe it's due to the crowded dining room. Very difficult to move about. $150 for two with a glass of wine each didn't seam worth the experience this time.

I’m thinking the expansion may have been a little over whelming for the staff. Service wasn’t great and the food didn’t come out as fast or as common. It was my first negative experience there! Very unfortunate.

I took my father to dinner for what thought would be nice and comforting but was very disappointed. The customer service was terrible. We waited over 20 mins for anyone to come to our table and even acknowledge us. When the waiter did finally come he was rude and acted like he didnt want to assist us. He brought out 1 side dish for 4 people and it was cold. My bill was $191 and it was definitely not worth it for the crazy service and cold food. I must say I'm very disappointed and would never reccomend this establishment.

The manager (Matt) is awesome and his staff is polite and efficient. The salad bar is amazing and probably the best I have had in the Twin Cities. The Brazilian BBQ is authentic and very plentiful! We usually go with a big group and always have a great time. The recent remodel has really brightened up the dining area--love it!!

Went for birthday/Father’s Day. Waiter told us it was dead but the food/service/noise when ‘dead’ makes me not want to go back.. the food was ok. The whole atmosphere now reminds me of OCB.. it is not fancy dining and the constant traffic circling the tables from patrons and staff, kill any mood. For two buffet meals and two drinks each we paid $200 w/ 20% tip. With hundreds of other choices downtown for that cost we won’t be back or recommend it to anyone.. I ve been here over 10 times since they opened but not in the past two years, it has gone downhill!! Most meat was over cooked we are not asked how we’d like it cooked when they slice as well. Churn and burn mentalities appear to be the norm.

Amazing as always! The market table & feijoada bar offers a delicious selection covering a wide range of tastes. Then there's the meat!!! Nothing better than having multiple cuts/types of meat to choose from...YUM!

Generally we were offered beef. Not the house special or anything different than top sirloin. I asked for the house special as well as chicken and sausage, but just got bottom sirloin

This place used to be absolutely amazing. The salad bar is no longer as top notch as it use to be, and the new lamb seasoning recipe that is used is the most disgusting thing I have ever put in my mouth. I don’t know what happened to you Fogo, but I’m definitely never coming back.

Absolutely wonderful
Since I don't have the use of my right hand, the Mgr saw me struggling to cut my meat...He came over and offered to cut my meat for me each and every time
The servers also did there best to make sure I had portions that could be cut up easy due to my handicap
WOW is all I have to say 😀😀😀😀

This is indeed service WAYYYYY above I've ever had !!!!!!

Lunch -used the $25 off deal during lunch and it was still over $100 with two drinks. Very expensive but fresh meat, which I love. The service is good; consistent stops by the table. Nothing overly delicious but a great concept and especially satisfying if you live near.

It was our first in the restaurant, the wait staff walked us through the dinning experience with a smile and energy.
The service was attentive and pleasant without being over bearing. Always close by if needed.
The food was on point. Even the salad bar would've been enough.

The service and the food were excellent. For me, the steaks were seasoned perfectly. The salad bar is ample, and offers plenty of variety. The price was quite fair. The wait staff are eager to meet your needs. From an economic standpoint, it just made a lot more sense to go here, versus to a steakhouse. You can have as much as you want of whatever cut of steak you want for a reasonable price. How easy is that?

Expensive for what you get. Just not worth it. You need to plan on eating a lot of meat! Not many options for those that are not big meat eaters. Other food was pretty basic, felt like I was at an all inclusive resort that was trying too hard.

Disappointing experience. Salad bar was out of food. Mashed potatoes were not available, table bread was not available. Servers were few and far between. One server was awesome, the rest were non attentive or over worked. Not worth $52 per person. Took over 30 minutes to bring one desert. Meat was just "OK". Not worth the money spent. Really disappointing!

They need to figure out payment process. There are too many people involved and it takes forever to get credit card back. It usually takes at least 20 min to get check and credit card to sign. It is chain-wide problem, not specific to Minneapolis location.

Overpriced and under served. Our waiter was never around. Waited 30 min for drinks. Did not have the wine I ordered twice- then brought me a glass of something of poorer quality and tried to claim it was the same.
Never had some of the meats come to our table, and we asked for them.
Unlikely we will be back- too bad, as the food we had was good
