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

I loved the large salad bar and all the meat options. The house special sirloin was my favorite! The service was wonderful, and they even offered us dessert on the house since it was our anniversary. Hope to come back soon!

Like always Fogo de Choa does not disappoint. The food and service are impeccable! We love the Parmesan crusted pork, filet, bottom sirloin, and the lamb.

This place is really all about the meat and for the most part the offerings were good. The self service sides are ok but nothing special and pretty limited. The service is odd. We had maybe 4 different servers who seemed like maybe they were our server but couldn’t commit. The one who ultimately was the most frequent took our drink orders (which came wrong) continually tried to give us bread after we told him we did not want bread. I mean like maybe eight attempts and half prompted by him. At the end this same server came by asking if we wanted dessert we said no and he left. Fifteen minutes went by and no check so I flagged him down and asked for the check. Twenty minutes later still no check. I took my son to the bathroom and came back. My wife then said a different server came by and brought the check and my wife paid. We were finally walking to the exit and my wife questioned the amount we were charged. So I asked at the front desk how much we should have been charged and she said we were over charged. So we waited some more till a manager adjusted the check. I can’t imagine coming here again.

Loved the experience. Food was amazing. Great for special occasion. The Market Table to begin with is the best. The amount and variety of meat is mind boggling. The only thing that left me somewhat disappointed is paying an adult full price for my 13 yr old daughter who barely ate a tiny fraction of an adult. Definitely would go back but probably not as a family.

Went to Fogo for my husband's birthday. We were sat promptly as we had a reservation. The meat, at first, came out right away. A larger table came in not too long after we did and that table along with several other bigger tables were clearly being favored. It worked out for us though cause then we took our time eating. The house special steak was the best!!

Typical Brazilian steakhouse. All the food was very good. Tables are a bit close together and when full was on the noisy side. Not the best for a romantic or business dinner. Was disappointed that they didn’t have the grilled pineapple with cinnamon, which I thought was a staple, but I highly recommend the pineapple with ice cream dessert as a replacement.

Wonderful food and the service was off the charts! The fact we needed a quiet area for the business meeting and the offering of the private room made the whole affair a special occasion. Thank you for setting the high bar of customer service!

Staff service is amazing. You literally cannot run out of anything, whether it be food or drink, until you are so full all you can do to recover from the food baby is to take a nap.

The meat experience was exceptional and the service was attentive without being bothersome. The salad bar selection was excellent and overall it was a wonderful evening. The date I was with likely escalated the overview of the evening, but I would still recommend this restaurant highly.

The food was of abundance and it keeps coming. The market place was over flowing with options. The meat was good with many varieties however it seemed the same varieties came to our table and when we were full new varies arrived.
We shared the molten cake and the flan which was the perfect to share at the end. Staff was friendly and fun.

The Market Table offers a nice selection of items for those not looking for the full Castro experience which includes a great variety of flavorful meats served tableside and as fast as you can devour it. A nice selection of wines and spirits are available along with a tasty dessert menu.

Service during the lunch hour was wonderful and friendly.

Initially, we were pleased with how the evening was going. Although our table wasn't ready at our reserved time and others were seated before us as the host station was a bit confused, they quickly recovered. Our server was pleasant. 3
of our 4 ordered drinks arrived timely; soda and a beer, the glass of wine was forgotten, however after asking, it was delivered. The food quality was very good. The meat severs were timely and very cheerful until about halfway through the meal. They did not return, the green cards made no difference. No one asked about a 2nd drink, nor did they refill sodas. We would've ordered dessert, again no one asked. Finally, getting our ticket was a challenge. A missed opportunity and left us with a bad feeling, after what could've been a great evening. They did give us a gift card for 2 dinners, very nice but we live 4 hours away, so unlikely to use them.

We have been to Fogo several times. Each one of those times was to give it another chance because our experiences had always been more on the negative side. We have quite a few friends who have enjoyed it for years. We just find the environment very loud and very confusing. We seem to leave feeling anxiety and that we had paid quite a bit of money for a minimal experience. We went tonight and decided on our way home that we would never again go to Fogo.
I am sure there are lots of Fogo fans, but we are not.

We are frequent diners of Fogo, and have always enjoyed our experiences. Our most recent date wasn’t up to par with other times we have gone. We had two consistent waiters and between the two of them, it took a while to get clean plates, they asked us 5-6 times what specific cuts of meats we wanted over a 60 minute period, and finally after 1.5 hours, we were given the one we were asking for. Having to remind them half a dozen times seems a little ridiculous. We asked for the bill three times, as neither waiter communicated with each other. It took OVER 30 MINUTES to get our bill. The waiter explained drinks were accidentally added, and for some reason, half an hour was the length of time it took to fix that issue. It felt unprofessional and chaotic. We love Fogo and will be coming back, and hopefully we will have a better experience.

Staff was super friendly. Everyone, not just our server, checked on us and answered questions. It was my mom's birthday and the staff made her feel really special with free dessert to boot. The appetizer/side dish buffet had a lot of variety and kept fresh. The meat courses are very good - juicy, with just the right amount of flavor. It was my first time going there. I will definitely go back again.
