Probably not going back. Food used to be better. It was $350 for 4 people. Not worth the high cost.

I went for lunch with my sister to celebrate her birthday. We had a fantastic meal and the service was great. At one point, someone noticed we had been waiting for meat to come around for a while and asked what we wanted so he could send it to our table. Will definitely be back for another special occasion.

We met a couple new waiters tonight, big Nick and little Nick. Both were amazing and had a great sense of humor. Big Nick (who was actually the smaller of the two) completely changed the way I want to eat bananas at Fogo. Matt took care of my whole group and went above and beyond what he should have done, but that’s why we eat here so often. The food is great, but the people are better.

We have been here several times and have been very happy, however this past Sunday was not the case. We were there for my husband's and the best part was the very nice lady at check in and coat check, she was fantastic. When we were ready for our meat, there was plenty of ribs, pork and chicken, but very limited steak. As I was waiting for some form of steak a worker asked how it was going and I asked if we could get steak, as we have done before. He was not very pleasant and wanted to know what kind and how we wanted it. I said filet would be nice, I would like mine well and everyone else would like rare. When we did get it, they only had rare and said he would return will well, and never did. The rest of the experience was just ok, not what we are used to here. I actually left not very full. As I said before, we love coming here, but after this past Sunday, not sure if we will return. Not the experience we have been used to. Very disappointed.

Sincerely,
Holly Cole

Fogo de Chao is a great restaurant to try several items and to get totally filled up! Great food! My husband had the full experience. Having dined here before, I knew the Market Table was sufficient for me.

My only concern was that we were tucked away in a corner table and sometimes forgotten while the next table a little closer to the hustle and bustle were never left waiting.

Love Fogo, but they have some work to do. Was there a month ago, seated near salad bar and a huge fruit fly problem. Back last week, seated quite away from tbe salad bar, still disturbed by fruit fly's.

Service and food were excellent as always

It’s a meat lovers paradise but my favorite this time was the salad bar. No where else can you indulge on delicious chicken salad and nova salmon in large quantities without any limits. You can truly indulge in what you like best. My only problem with the whole dinner was that I felt rushed. The dinner conversation was frequently interrupted with questions from the staff. I know it is the nature of this place and you can turn your coaster from green to red but the cadence was much to fast. They must like to turn the tables as quickly as possible to maximize their revenue. I felt like we were pushed to eat dinner way to fast. At these prices you shouldn’t have to worry about that. My adult children like the food but I am not sure I will be back soon. I dine out frequently and prefer to savor and enjoy my food and the experience.

Surprised to see the remodel. Stark and institutional. Tight tables and packed in diners. The old Fogo model was cozy and a great place for an upscale dinner. After learning that the company had been purchased and revamped(doubt that it was done from a customer experience as everything was perfect), it's easy to see where their going with the new ownership- more volume = profits. What once was a unique experience has been turned into an expensive Old Country Buffet. The staff was professional and the service was excellent but Fogo has lost special place with us. We're moving on.

Surprisingly disappointing this visit. We were over-approached at the beginning of meal with servers. 4 stopping in to get drink orders. And under-approached at the end of the meal - having to finally flag down a manager for the bill. After the first 1/2 hour of sitting down we were abandoned by servers. It was not busy, and there was plenty of staff. Meat was disappointing as well - kept getting the same 3 meats offered over & over. When we asked for specific cuts, they brought two of the 3 we asked for - after we asked a 2nd time. However, one server found out my favorite cut & brought it often, which was much appreciated! Some of the meat was dry and not seasoned right. The salad bar had a lot of sad looking fruit. All and all a disappointing trip to Fogo. We go often in multiple cities and this was our worst experience to-date. Just an off-night, maybe?

my service is just really disappointing I know Halloween was a school night but it just was really awful at the end of our meal it took forever to clear one plate for my table as everybody else in my family had been cleared up I also was offered a free dessert for my birthday but they didn't even bring me a dessert menu so I could buy dessert for the rest of my family if I had so chosen to and it took an extraordinary amount of time for someone to get my credit card and then return it all in all I was just absolute is appointed and I'm a fairly regular customer we come in to celebrate birthdays and fun things 4 or 5 times a year but I definitely think I'm going to rethink that now

Maybe because I've been to some pretty spectacular Brazilian steakhouses my standards are a little higher - but the ambience is that of a huge communal cafeteria. No separation, everyone too close, too bright, high ceilings make it lack intimacy. For the price, the cost of their rent in their location Espetus Churrascaria runs circles around Fogo de Chao.

I did it - but wouldn't again when I return to Mpls.

Overall, we had a lovely time! High quality food at a fairly reasonable price if you're going to eat quite a bit. The only bummer was that we went for my fiance's birthday, and they don't acknowledge birthdays! We found this to be odd considering this is a place we would recommend for special occasions primarily.

We came with two other couples to celebrate my husbands birthday. Food was served quickly and continuously. Everything was delicious! Their salad bar is great and expansive with a variety of delicious veggies, cheeses and salads. We came during Restaurant Week so had special pricing! We were all very impressed (and full!). They also have great desserts! Highly recommend this place!

I love the new remodel of the restautant. I love that salad bar too!
Service was okay. I felt a bit ignored compared to the other table that was beside us. It was very obvious that they were 'regulars' and we were not. They were given many extras including an extra dessert, made me sad. i wanted to be special too!
Loved that the manager Nate (?) had time to swing by and hang out with us for a bit. That made up for my sadness. He is a good guy!

Honestly, This experience was a great one. I was in Minneapolis for the weekend and luckily I picked restaurant week to go! The service was utterly amazing, if the waiters could give me more oxygen, i'm sure they would. They constantly asked how me and my friend were doing and if we needed anything at all. The food was amazing too. Some of the most tender and juicy cuts of meat i've had. Great overall experience. I would go again.
