Overall good experience. It seems to be a situation where the servers all tend to all tables - One of the servers took our drink order and never brought one of our beverages (sweet tea) We made do with just water. The same server stated that they would replenish the garlic mashed potatoes and never did. Also, the garlic mashed potatoes were the only side that we received after being told that there would be two (the second one was some type of bananas, I believe). The atmosphere is brighter and louder than most traditional steakhouses, but the interactive experience does encourage more communication. Overall, we enjoyed our meal, just a few oversights put a small damper on a significantly priced meal. However, we will be back!

It was my birthday! It was a late reservation and I guess the restaurant wanted to close early so they tried to discourage me from coming at first. Once I hit there though, the staff was nice and did their best to cater to me.

The food was good but it was better the first time I went. Some of the meat was a little dry and the sides got cold really fast.

The food as always was great but the service was not good at all... My waitress made a mistake in telling me about the wagu beef by making it seem like it was included in the cuts of meat.. when I went back and asked her about it again she said it was separate. I informed her I didn't want it. I was directed to someone else who basically told me I couldn't resend the order. So I was forced to pay for something I didn't what I'm which I stated to 2 people.. I won't return to this place because of this...

Experience was awesome. Food was great!! Sadly our waitress service wasn’t to good. We had a party of 6, and after receiving our first cocktail we never seen our waitress again. We asked several servers, bus boys to call our waitress. Other than being parched it was great!

Nola downtown parking is free on Sundays, bonus!

However, on the last day of restaurant week I had a 2pm reservation with Fogo only to learn the restaurant week deal didn't begin until dinner at 5pm! Whoops. Fair enough, explored downtown and at 5pm began the massive eating experience.

Lots to like at the salad bar, the greens and cheese really compliment the meats that arrive periodically. Everything was good, meats are high quality. Staff was super attentive and polite. COVID response was thoughtful as they filled the salad plates without any need to touch them (servers can juggle multiple plates too - quite impressively). Dessert was fantastic, trying the key lime and chocolate cake. Both were very rich and strong flavors, one chocolate and one fruity is a great flavor mix to share with a date. A super deal, I just need to use more restraint and not overeat next time so I can enjoy the desert more!

There were some kids running around and it was a little loud at times but I'd still recommend the 5pm start time. Skipping lunch and doing an early dinner works well, come hungry and the value is incredible.

This place is amazing. I love everything about it. You definitely get your money worth. My advice is to go on a empty stomach. I have eaten there twice now in the last couple of weeks. Unfortunately, I taped out early both times only after two servings.

The vegetarian options for warm or hot foods are horrible, but everything else was superb. The upstairs and outside seating was closed which was sad, but I think I understand why . The service was pretty awesome though.

I’ve been to a few Fogos around the country and this one has the worst service. They forgot to give us the sides that come with our meal after we asked twice and failed to being other items to us. The meat was super over cooked and dry but i think is because that had us sitting in the upstairs area. Terrible service but beautiful restaurant.

Always a wonderful meal. Glad the salad bar is back, with them serving your plate as you tell them what to add. The meats are delish, and a wide variety to pick from. One of my favorite restaurants in the big easy

As usual Fogo de Chao was a great dining experience.
The restaurant adapted well to COVID restrictions. The staff is always very welcoming and attentive to patrons.
The food is great and diverse. We of course go over there for their grilled meat, which is excellent.
The salad/appetizer bar seems to have fewer options, but still a lot of good things to chose from.

So we were under the impression that fogo de chao was still doing COOLinary and that’s why we decided to go. Even though we have a fogo de chao in Orlando Florida as well but we love Brazilian Steak houses. We asked who we thought our server was about it and she never heard of it then we asked someone else who paused and then told us that they aren’t doing that anymore. They’ve stopped a week ago even though it clearly says on the website that it’s over September 13...


Long story short, they were clearly understaffed, and they didn’t bring everything to the table. For ex, they were out of those sweet plantains that we love but we had to ask for them and that’s when we learned that they were out. There was clearly a lack of communication with our server to us.
