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.

Me and my fiancé have been very busy with work lately and don’t get to enjoy a nice night out very often, but we decided to make an exception for our anniversary and try this place out. Our dining experience went from great to awful throughout the night, we arrived around seven as we like to have a few glasses of wine before our dinner and not feel rushed, we were seated and coerced into the “full dining experience” without knowing it would be the opposite, we ordered a bottle of wine and some drinks and explained to one of our waitresses that we’d like to finish our drinks before receiving any food, she said that was perfectly fine and provided our bottle. After some wine and drinks we decided we wanted to have some cheese and salad from the market salad bar (the salad bar is literally the only thing that saves this place from a one star rating) and ordered a chilled shrimp cocktail appetizer, this is when things started going south, all of a sudden we are delivered sides of food that we didn’t request yet and our chilled shrimp cocktail was delivered to our table sautéed and with lobster for some reason. We asked to have it corrected and were told it would be about fifteen minutes, we then started feeling rushed, we finish our wine, drinks and cheese and are hungry by this point, so we decide to allow meat to be brought to the table, much to our dismay all of the meats served were medium well to well done even after we requested multiple times for rarer cuts we were still brought burnt slivers/tiny pieces of meat and by the time we received any meat our sides we didn’t ask for were cold, we tried to make the most of it and keep our heads up but we were becoming extremely upset, I decided to tell our waitress we would like a rare ribeye and spicy sausage, our spicy sausage never arrived and our ribeye was given to us medium well in a to go box with the check, this is an extremely rude gesture and inexcusable, we then payed and left hungry and appalled.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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 😉

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.

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.

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.

We felt we didn’t get the full experience as previous visits to other Fogo de Chao Locations. They didn’t come to our table with the meats in a timely manner, therefore we didn’t get to try all the different selections of meat. We felt that we were often missed.

I’ve dined at several locations and always enjoyed my experience but this was honestly one of my worse dining experiences ever in general. The service was very slow, and on top of that all of the meat was mediocre and over cooked. I’ve never had a problem getting meat cooked rare or medium rare but it was as if all of the meat was medium well to well done. Just not the experience I expect from a restaurant I normally love.
