Let’s see, I was very very disappointed in the service of the waiter. When I set up the reservation I had check in for a birthday celebration. No one asked the occasion. We had a great view the guys with the meat the “churrasqueiro” or “rodízio” are beyond great, always so polite and friendly. One of the waitstaff was so friendly made small chat with us. Then after that we were forgotten, i had asked for lamb chops I took them another half an hour to comeback with it, never got water my husband had to drink mine, then it took about half and hour to ask for the dessert menu at that point my husband was a bit irritated and we decided to leave. When I asked for my check and mention that we had been waiting for a long time it was a very insincere “sorry”. So I paid the bill leaving about 24% tip. We visit the establishment for the food and the service the service that makes you want to come back at least once a month! Im coming back again but im not very sure if is going to be for a special occasion. I’m all about paying for a great service and great food. This time I was just very very disappointed. And to think they where not busy because of the storm. I can see it any other Saturday but this Saturday... it just sticks that it happen on a special birthday celebration.

Service is great. 2 thumbs up for the workers. They're really on top of their game. Although, the food is not what it use to be when i first went. Its.... average at best. But, definately would go there again just for a romantic date getting 5 star services and atmosphere.

Excellent as always for both service and food. If you only want the salad bar and your choice of one meat, ask for this option, which reduces the lunch price by $10.00. We celebrated my daughter’s 30th birthday there and I never have to ask twice to get family to join us. This restaurant is our family favorite!!

Good experience overall, but there were a couple of things that could have made it fantastic. There were a few contributing issues. First, due to traffic/construction, we were 10 min late but I had called and asked they hold out table for us. I don’t know if it was the last table available, if it was punishment for unexpected construction delays, or some other issue but we ended up getting seated in a corner and pretty isolated. Servers had to make an effort to get to us and sometimes missed us with meats. Drinks were empty on multiple occasions because of the length of time between the infrequent trip to our table. There was so much weaving to get to our table, not only making it less desirable for servers to get to us, but going to the salad bar was a real hassle. I have eaten there before and had a table in the large, open dining area where servers were constantly offering meats and where servers were hovering around their area, and not having that prompt service because of our table location was a real disappointment. We even had to wait ages for the check and the busser was cleaning off and stripping our table before we had left. I realize we were 10 min late getting seated, but there was a lot of pressure to leave for turnover. We could have left much earlier if we hadn’t continually been forgotten-even waiting 20 minutes for the check when they were obviously in a hurry to get the next people seated before the busser finally took my card to run it and then returned with the check & pen. We had been ready long before that and could have been out of there much earlier if our server showed up more than the 3 times they did over the course of the meal. We debated grabbing clean plates and refilling water glasses because we were next to them and because we had such infrequent service. With all of those factors bringing the experience down, the food was excellent and I would still call it a good experience-but only because the meats redeemed them!

Service is back up to par at Fogo. Our most recent visits have found the stellar level of attentiveness and service to be slipping, but today’s visit was back. Up to the high level we’ve grown to expect. We were celebrating a birthday and one diner enjoyed the full meal with meats, and one chose the Gaucho lunch of just the Market Table salad bar. Both were extremely satisfied. The Market Table has endless supplies of tasty vegetables, salads and other goodies. My favorites are the chicken salad, arugula salad, quinoa tabouli, and the fresh basil salad dressing. Love the green beans and cucumbers too. My dining companion enjoyed steady and prompt selections of grilled meats, including her favorites, Picanha and garlic beef. Topped off with a complimentary birthday creme brûlée, and we were happy campers! Thanks, Fogo!

It's not what it used to be. We hadn't been there since the remodel, of which I'm not a fan. As others have noted, it is too bright, too crowded, and too loud. The sheer number of additional people makes it more difficult for the servers to make their way around with the meat skewers. It also seemed like this time there weren't as many of the top cuts circulating. Even the offerings on the market bar seemed to have dropped in quality. The asparagus spears are still there, but they were off-color and the quality wasn't as good, and the selections seemed more mundane and limited.

We were seated at a table located next to a wall with white wallpaper. There were drops of what appeared to be blood (I assume juice from the meat) in several spots on the wall. I also observed the market bar attendant tidy up some items that had dropped outside of their containers on the bed of ice. He scooped them up and promptly ate them! To sum it up, Fogo de Chao will no longer be our go-to for special occasions.

This was my fourth experience at Fogo, and by far, my worst. Several items were empty on the salad bar and not refreshed timely. We had extended wait times for the meats. Some upwards of 3-5 minutes without anyone acknowledging us, even though several waiters passed by our table and saw our green coasters. The variety of meats presented was limited and once requested, several meats took a long time to arrive. Several of the cuts were raw - I like rare steak, but raw is too much. Unfortunately, we wasted a lot of the meat. Our server was rushed - spilled water on my son and broke a glass at our table, which took >5 mins to clear, so because we had just paid, we finished our meal and left. The experience was greatly lacking for the amount spent on the meal. Very disappointed.

Was once a year birthday celebration. Was not asked what occasion was. It was on the reservation. Never brought up by server. Horrible service. Have been to Fogo many times, this was worst service ever. Other patrons walked out without paying as it took so long to get service. Had to ask for many of the meats as they walked around with only a few. Sad sad experience. Not what I’m use to with Fogo

As many times as I have been here, this is far most the worst experienced ever! Four people came to the table for the same meats, no waiter or waitress came around to check on us, and I got sick at the end of the night. I'm sure it was something I ate at the salad bar. I always loved the salad bar but each and every time we have been there, the vegetables are becoming less and less fresh. Old and soggy was some of the vegetables. I'm really comtemplating on whether we will return again. It used to be one of my favorite place to dine at, but I probably won't be back for awhile if ever??

Our experience was just OK. We went for a person's birthday, but were seated in a spot that was loud and trafficky. I had to ask the waiter to get the meat people to come to our table. The waiter asked if he could clear the plates several times before we were done. I had to ask for a coffee refills twice. We generally felt neglected.
