Excellent food as always. I just can’t eat enough to make it worthwhile. But I’ll go back again and again. Miguel was a fantastic server. He took excellent care of us. As always we ate too much but enjoyed every bite!

5 star experience at Fogo de Chao! Matt and his entire team cater to you to make sure that everything is perfect. The salad bar had so much variety and everything was so delicious, we went back for seconds. The meats were the star. They sizzle as they come to your table on skewers and the gaucho chefs carve you a perfectly prepared selection of meat. The chefs are great about asking if you have any requests and bring them over quickly. The best part of the entire meal is the service. You can tell the staff wants to be sure that you have a great experience and makes you feel like you are the only customers there despite having a full restaurant. We cannot wait to go back!

I was sooo disappointed n this place. Super loud, chaotic, food mediocre at best. I don’t want to serve myself at a buffet when I’m paying $100 per meal. Ugh Taje my advice avoid this restaurant! Not classy.

Family get-together after a long a time here at the Fogo De Chao Minneapolis was totally worth it. The food, ambiance, service, people everything was great. We were celebrating two of the family members' birthday. And they were so kind to offer us dessert on them to celebrate the occasion. Special thanks to Tony and Miguel for their wonderful services. They were very friendly and nice to us to make the experience even more worthy.

Horrible service. Staff was not knowledgeable of the menu and there seemed to be great confusion amongst staff of who was to do what. We kept getting asked the same thing by multiple servers but none of which would follow through with accommodating our requests. Very disappointing.

It’s definitely a once in a year sort of indulgence (otherwise I think my body just couldn’t handle all the rich foods they bring you!), but my friends and I always have a great time at Fogo. Had a particularly lovely time last night chatting a bit with our server, Ben. It was a wonderful way to celebrate with my parents during their visit from out of state.

The food was exceptional, but the experience lacked a bit. It took a long time for the different selections to circulate to us. A long time for the valet to take our car and then bring it back. A long time for the server to circle back to us for a drink order. I recommend finding out the least busy time and going then. We went on a Thursday evening.

We had a great time, food was good but don't seem like a lot variety of meats and it was not the same in the salad area I still like the old way better, wait services was excellent and the manager Matt was very helpful with our party of 14 and was on top of everything.

From the greeting at the front door from the beautiful hostess Pyri to the most accommodating bartender Sheldon 🍸 to the delightful dining experience provided by the great Mr Tanner and the handsome Mr Isaac I was thoroughly impressed by the service and the food. The two together made our night out worth it and certainly makes me look forward to my next visit 😊

Overall OK. Tables are set way to close together in the dining room. Chair bumped into multiple times by waiters, mobile bartenders, other patrons. Just a sea of humanity. Felt more like a Vegas buffet than fine dining. Food is good, variety is great. Ok for family dining, pretty lame for a date night.

We were taking our son to a play and dinner. We decided to have dinner in the bar area. The bartenders were very disappointing. They poured us wine without asking that we did not order. They traded out two wines that we ordered for other flavors and at a $8 per glass cost increase. They confused our food order with another table delaying our food service. They were less than friendly or appreciative that we were there as customers. Unsure if it is ever worth trying again. Unfortunate to see three bartenders when not fulfilling servers orders standing around and ignoring paying customers.

We Had to move tables due to a party expanding and it was really intrusive and too close to our table. We asked to move which the server helped us move but the new table was extremely wobbly. There was puke in the men’s restroom sink. Yuck.

It's always hard to match the food quality of Fogo de Chao as it is always good. The thing that always set them apart is service and this time was no different. Our server was knowledgeable, attentive, and whimsical. He made my wife's Birthday dinner really enjoyable. Thank you.

We have been to Fogo many times and have always had a great experience. Last night was the only exception. Our table was forgotten until Paige came to our rescue at the end. She is awesome and did her best to turn things around for us. I can not complement her enough. To Fogo’s credit of being a quality place though. I talked with the manager and he took care of our meals and sent us home with complementary desserts.

We turned the green for the meat, but they didn't show up, which made the situation difficult. We informed our waiter, but the other people were not interested in coming to us and their friends were eating next to us so they were too busy with them.
