It was restaurant week so it was to be expected it was busy. The workers seemed to be working there tails off. I thought there could have been better organization of the wait staff. They had so many servers running around we couldent figure out which one was ours. We waited quite a extended period of time for our plates to get cleared off and to order dessert. Also waited a long time for our bill. It was a nice deal to come in on restaurant week but would definitely be irritated if this is normally how the service is. Not sure I will dine again at fogo de Chao in the near future.
It was my first time there. The food was excellent. The service was good for the most part. Asked quite a few times for extra dinner plate, and salt and pepper. I didn't let the minor things ruin my experience there though.
My party and I went on Restaurant week. Our host was very knowledgeable about everything and was able to convince us to have the full service. Although we did, we didn't get very much variety in the meats that were going around even though we asked multiple times for different kinds of meat. Also, at the very end, we had to ask 3 different people to bring us our tab. I've heard many great things about this place, but our experience this time around has left me thinking that this may be my first and last time.
Should not have gone during restaurant week. Servers were very slow and had to flag down waiters to bring meet. Too many people and not enough meet.
We have eaten at Fogo during past restaurant weeks and non-restaurant weeks and had a wonderful experience, but last night was truly awful. We brought 3 friends who had never been and we wantes them to enjoy it like we have in the past. After last night, none of us will be going back. With the expansion of the dining room, it doesn't appear they added extra gauchos or wait staff. It took 20min for water, 30 min for drinks, and 45 min before our first piece of mutton (not eve lamb, it was so tough). Then another 30 min before any other meat was offered. We never saw our waiter during this time period, and we had to flag down another one, who ROCKED and is the only reason the review got 2 stars, and he was able to let gauchos know we were there and waiting. Sad, very sad. Rodizio will be getting our business from now when we want to experience a Brazilian steakhouse.
I have been to Fogo numerous times. We got seated by the window which was fine but we were never introduced to our waiter. The buser end up getting us water, plates, potatoes and fried plantains. We never were asked for our drink order so we ended up with just water. I don't think I have ever had such lack of service. The table next to us was constantly serviced by our same waiter but he never came to us. Just kept saying he would be right back but never came. It was really odd. Last time we were there we actually had the SAME waiter and he serviced us better, we were in a group of 7, so maybe that mattered compared to just 2 people.. Maybe larger table is a bigger tip I suppose but I am was annoyed to say the least.
Party of 8. Seated in way back corner by the windows. Only had about 5 cuts of meat come though us the whole time we were there. Waiter was not attentive. Took 20 minutes to get us water and 30 minutes to get side dishes out to us. Was not refilling water. Did not switch out plates. Bad seating so the meats did not get to us at all. We have been there before with better services. Brought along 4 first timers and they were not impress. I was also not impress by the lack of attentiveness and service that night. Would like a refund or credit for next time.
I mixed up the reservation for restaurant week but they were kind enough to honor it even though we were a half hour too early. Except splitting the check caused a whole fiasco where some people were charged more than they were supposed to and some weren't charged enough. Just divide the check by 5. It shouldn't be that difficult. Caused absolute chaos to split a check. And we never saw our waiter. Had to get other people to help us. He finally came by to try to clear up the check issue which he only made worse.
We made a reservation online for 10:00 PM. We enjoyed the amazing meat and salad bar and began the main course close to 10:30. We noticed however that the Gauchos started thinning out close to 11:00. The cuts of meat started to dry out as well, which interrupted our fabulous meal. One of the Gaucho's noticed that we were still eating and started bringing us personalized service. This is a top tier venue and in the end, they took care of us. I highly recommend Fogo De Chao. It's a fantastic place for adults and I love that people also bring their children. I would recommend making a reservation before 9:00. You will not be disappointed.
It was great and easy to reserve a table through the Opentable app. My complaints were for the service. Our server did not come back after providing us with water glasses to ask if we wanted to order any other drinks. He also did not come back to take our empty salad bar plate/discard plate for almost the entire time of eating. It wasn't until I left to use the restroom towards the end of our meal that he came back to take our plates, even then he only took my fiane's plate and not mine! He then proceeded to ask if we were ready for the bill which my fiance answered that he was done but I was not. Even though I was not done eating, he brought the bill anyways. this is annoying because it made it look like we were done and when I had my card flipped green for "Go" I didn't get served with any meat options for 15 minutes! To add, the restaurant was doing a voucher for "buy 2 dinners, get a voucher for 1 free dinner for next visit" and our bill book did not have the voucher inside. We saw that the couple next to us clearly had the voucher when they got their bill... when someone came to run our card (which wasn't even our server), we had to then ask him for the voucher. So you can understand our frustration for feeling shorted when that voucher is worth an entire meal!
