This time my Full experience option was not perfect. I went to this place before for dinner and lunch with wonderful meat options. This time my lunch was not good.
It was great but only expect one passing of things like the buttered bread and mashed potatoes. I love being able to request certain meats and the degree of what I want it cooked.
Ok, a little over priced for the food quality
We got there and was told that there wud b lots of servers coming to the table and they sure did, so much that u cud not have a conversation. They were the only thing coming to the table, no food was. When some did come there was just a sliver left on the skewer and only enough for 1 of us. We realized there was some big party n the back that was clearly their concentration. At 1 point we noticed most of the servers leave and we sat there for 20 min waiting for someone to clear the table. We had to flag a back waiter down to clear. She asked if we did not want any desert and we replied "No one offered us any, but we wud if offered". Then the backnwaiter just brought the check. We eventually got desert. The manager came to the front to lock the door at 10:15, but paid no attention to the few tables still there not being attended too. Hope they made good money with the private party because ignoring locals is not good for customer retention. Food was good, service was over whelming when there, manager gets a D for sending staff home too early and not paying attention to customer service.
Altogether horrible, my review was deemed too long for this
Great business meal at Fogo in New Orleans. Located right on Canal street in the CBD/French Quarter division at the JW Marriott it’s a great location for people watching. The meals were great, happened to be there on 1/2 price wine night so that was an added plus. Cuts of meat were tasty and the sides were great.
I don’t think this location knows the definition of medium . Every meat brought to us was well done even after telling them Medium cook only. Horrible experience. Would not visit this location again,
Awful experience! Had a reservation and still waited 20 minutes for a table. Hostess would disappear for long periods of time with no explanation. When we finally were seated, waiter comes up, hands us the menu and just assumes we are getting their "whatever meat and market table." Seriously, he JUST handed us the menu and then starts with what do you want to drink...like his hair was on fire or something. Whole experience was like going to a bumped up Golden Coral. NOLA has so many GREAT restaurants but I promise you, this isn't one of them!
Service before and during the meal was impeccable, however, it took 10 minutes to get a check to close out the meal.
Went in for coolinary decided to get the full experience menu instead, other than the lamb, I should’ve just stayed with the coolinary. IMO was not worth the additional money for the regular menu. Several items missing off salad bar, the filet which is not on coolinary was only offered twice the entire time I was there and was no more flavorful than any of the other meats served.
It was a family dinner with our parents. Everything was wonderful. İbrahim, who was serving the lamb, was doing an awesome job. The spice that he was using was going very well with the meat. Not hindering the taste but boosting the flavor. He is definitely master of the lamb meat and doing his good job very well. It was an outstanding experience and we are glad that we made the choice for Fogo de Chao.
Some of the severs would skip our table or would serve one person and leave without asking if someone else.
Great servers..Brandon and Sean were both adorable and so helpful. Dillon was our server and was very nice and made our meal enjoyable. The manager Monica was also very sweet and stopped to talk at our table. What a great staff you have. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience.
The evening was great with the exception of one item. I love pork spare ribs that were on the menu. I asked for pork spare ribs on as many as 6 occasions but never received them until the very end when I was ready to leave.
They were undercooked and very chewy. The worst food that I received that evening.
Beef ribs were great. Pork ribs very disappointing. Garlic mashed potatoes a nice compliment. Would have enjoyed some cooked vegetables but they were apparently not available.
Amazing coolinary menu, value for your money is superb !
Food was fantastic as always, service was great. Was not happy that even with reservations, we still had to wait half an hour for our table.
Our waiter Joshua was very attentive! We really enjoyed all the food. We will definitely be back!!
The goods: No issues with check-in. Waiter staff was cordial and the gents that brought the meats were kind. Food was excellent, at least the ones we got to try.
The others: My wife at some point asked the waitress about grilled pineapple, since that item hadn’t made it through our area. Waitress said she’ll tell them to make sure they swing by... never happened. So we decided instead to order dessert to a waiter this time because our waitress we never saw again. After more than 15 minutes of waiting for our desserts, I asked about it to another waitress, (and the check) who spoke to the waiter, who after 5 more minutes came to our table to apologize, and said our desserts were being now prepared. After an additional 5 minutes of waiting, we lost our appetite and told the waiter we were now leaving (30 minutes since we ordered dessert). He asked if we wanted take home boxes, but who wants to take home dessert in downtown New Orleans, if you are not going home right after?
Oh and it was my birthday which my wife had also mentioned via Open Table; although we were not there expecting nothing special, at least having dessert would have been nice finish. But nope.
Had the service met the standards, I think the price would’ve been reasonable. Not worth paying over $100 while on a date for this.
Birthday lunch. Was an excellent lunch. Only negative was the bill total was wrong and had to be adjusted.
Awesome place with a fine experience
Great Date Night
We dined at Fogo de Chão for my dad’s birthday for the Coolinary menu. I had eaten at the restaurant and had a great experience so I suggested the restaurant. The meat servers were excellent and very friendly. Our waitress asked if we needed a high chair and never brought it until we had to ask for it again. She asked if 2 of us wanted more Coke or tea to drink but no one else was asked. She also disappeared for majority of the time that we were there. We had to try to catch other servers to ask for things level for the check. I’m disappointed in the service and likely won’t be returning. I’ve had a better experience at Texas de Brazil.
We had brunch to celebrate my mom’s 55th birthday while we were in town and everything was great. The way they worked together as a team was just amazing, the food was great, the staff and did I mention the food?? We were stuffed by the time we left. And my mom got a birthday treat. Oh and if you do get a chance to go, make sure you try the Brazilian Gentleman, you won’t regret it 😉
Delicious food and wonderful service!!
It was great. Food was delicious.
I was disappointed in the variety of foods on the bar. Also, the majority of the meat was sirloin. There were other types of meats but in much lower frequency. The servers were very nice, but there should have been more of them.
We went for a birthday dinner for five. It went fairly smooth in the beginning. We waited for our fifth person to arrive for no longer than 20 minutes. While waiting, we started our meal. Water refills were hard to come by, we waited really long our sides to come out (we ended up having to ask someone else to bring it out). Our fifth person came and was not greeted. We had to alert someone that he didn’t have water or sides. The customer service overall was lacking (except for the people who carried the meat to the table because that was the only people we could get to give us water). There was a complaint filed towards the end and the management was very cold and unwavering. We did the coolinary menu to test to see if we would come back during a regular night and was very disappointed.
It was my friends birthday
Ok place if you haven’t been, but not worth the money in my opinion. Service could use some help
Great place to meet with friends. Food and service was great. Appreciate the valet service too.
Our Wedding Anniversary was exciting! Great food! Great service! We celebrate our Wedding Anniversary at this restaurant every year! My wife obtains her meat fix in the Seafood Capital of America, New Orleans!
Amazing steakhouse and great service. Always love the food here
This was my first time at the restaurant and my wife and I was celebrating our 5th Wedding Anniversary and we enjoyed the service from the waiters. The food was outstanding and the atmosphere was fantastic. I would recommend this place to anyone!!! Thank you!!!
Not the first time here. Service was fine in the beginning of the meal but halfway through we sat for over 15 mins without a piece of meat in sight. That was until SEAN, one of the carvers, was the only and first to come by and ask what cut did we prefer. After that he made sure we were in their radar. Thank you Sean.
We were overlooked and the meats came slow. 1 waiter did his best and made things better. Got full sitting waiting. My wife’s favorite place to leaving with a feeling of not caring if we came back.
I enjoyed it a little busy but what kinda upset me was my waitress attitude and how I asked her for something and she just left and clocked out without getting it but the manager I usually see jumped in her spot and made everything good again so thank you to her I been here multiple times but she made my gf first experience iffy
Food was fantastic. Service was really good as well.
Disappointing Experience. Special Coolinary menu, table of 7, Slow service, confused waitress, staff coordination very disjointed. Took 30 mins to get water to half the table. another 15 mins past this to get tokens for Service from servers, Took over 30 mins to get a second cocktail delivered which was incorrect. Meat entrees are brought, offered, sliced tableside but we Could not get entrees to the table on a consistent basis. Entrees seasoned inconstantly leaning toward under seasoned. Filled up on the market table which was also disappointing, gaps in the food especially the bacon and pineapple.
