Highly recommended - the ambiance, the staff was very attentive and engaging, meat options were great and you were able to ask for well-done meat. It was our first time there on a busy Father's Day. My 93-year-old Father, and 72-year-old brother who claimed they won't eat much - let's just say THEY ATE!

Okay food but definitely not worth the price. The quality of the steak wasn’t there and for them to give you a bite size of each and only coming around every 15 is crazy. Took my dad for a Father’s Day gift and there is not a piece of meat the was over medium rare. Good experience and fun. But I don’t think I’ll be back. Need to add that the passion fruit drink was 10/10

Service was OUTSTANDING on this visit and we've been coming to this location since it opened years ago. Waitstaff was continually checking in to make certain that we had everything that we desired and was extremely responsive to everything that we wanted to make the meal perfect. Waitstaff is well trained and knowledgeable, which is saying a lot at this particular point in time when the restaurant/service industry, as are most businesses, struggling with staffing.

Amazing service, hospitality, the food was the best I’ve had at a steak house. I would say be a little more clear on add one, we had the wagyu offered as part of the meal later to find out we had to pay $135 for it. I didn’t mind as I won’t make a fuss over food but please be clear with setting expectations on prices and experiences, felt robbed for a second.

The staff here get 5 stars! Everyone was A+++ especially Chris and Piero!!! What a team! The food was ok- not as flavorful or fresh as I was expecting but it was ok. I appreciated the care they took to keep the salad bar clean by having every guest put on gloves before using. That was a really safe touch. Overall it was an ok experience. The reason I’d visit again is because of the staff though. Truly an incredible team!

My Boyfriend and Friend was happy to tell us to go and try Fogo De Chao. So happily I made reservations and it was horrible. The same 4 meats kept coming by but first nobody stopped at our table. So the bartender went and called people for us. The manager came over and over said we were getting a discount and people would come over. This it was the same thing. I was over the so called experience it was lacking and it was just horrible. I wasn’t even full or anything. The discount was given but we had to speak with the manager twice. I was so annoyed. I will not come to this one ever again.

I am extremely disappointed in my experience yesterday. I paid nearly $1,200, and the service and my experience was absolutely terrible.

I have been to your restaurant many times and have always enjoyed the experience. I have referred many customers and decided to bring my team. I was embarrassed that I had told them how well it was going to be.

I will not return.

When you show up on time for a reserved table and are told to wait when tables are clearly available begins the encounter with an unhappy guest. I had to wait over twenty minutes while the hostess flitted around in a daze. Finally got seated next to the kitchen at what was the worst table in the whole place.

We then got constantly harassed by the server to order drinks, wine, and appetizers, which came out hot rather than cold. They were so overcooked you couldn’t get the lobster out of the shell. A waste of almost $40.

We got two serving of small pieces of meet and some plantains and mashed potatoes. The bread was inedible. During dinner we were harassed by someone selling sangria although we clearly had cocktails and wine.

Overall, a terrible experience. Run away

Felt incredibly neglected the whole entire time. I had to ask several times for my initial drink and that kind of behavior was experienced through out our time at the restaurant. We had a reservation as well and we have 2 kids and they stuffed us at a 2 seat table in a corner. We were pretty much overlooked and underserved the entire night. The food was absolutely mediocre and they only bring out the cheaper meat selections, I didn’t ever get offered a high quality cut of meat the entire meal. Definitely not worth the $200 we spent. Also, usually when we put it is for a birthday there is a special touch usually that the restaurant does to make the experience special. No one even mentioned happy birthday. Such a disappointment.

It was our last night in New Orleans, so we decided to keep it low key for my birthday dinner and dine at Fogo de Chao (9:30 reservation) since we stayed at the JW Marriott. Our table was in the back room and nicely social distanced from the other guests. Our server (Chris) was welcoming and took our orders right away, but then the service declined significantly: 1) the salad bar was pretty scarce (missing smoked salmon and black beans), 2) it took over 10 minutes for my glass of wine to arrive, 3) meat selections were very slow to come out (average 15 minutes) and most red meat was rare, and 4) no salt and pepper shakers upon request.

I asked Chris about the flow of food and he notified his line manager, which still didn't improve matters, so I asked to see the manager of the establishment. He was very apologetic about the service and assigned one server to our table to consistently bring out the meat selections. In addition, my husband ordered the salmon and it took over 20 minutes to arrive.

Again, the manager apologized for the poor service and gave us a $25 Mother's Day gift card which he says hadn't expired. I would've preferred a discount on the meal because we're probably not going to visit any other location in the near future.

Hostess was nice got us in early.
Server was terrible. She stood there staring at us waiting for us to order food I guess, I had to tell her we wanted to do the full experience, she looked surprised as if that’s not what everyone does. She explained nothing to us. We frequent Texas de Brazil so luckily we know the drill. We also know that her waiting until we were DONE eating meat to ask if we wanted any sauces or any complimentary sides is not good service. They’re not complimentary sides we pay for them with our full experience and they should be automatically brought to the table. So we got no bread, bananas or mashed potatoes. Also the meat was crazy salty, some was over cooked, we never got the filet mignon, and the gauchos only came along about every 5-10 minutes. We gave up and stopped eating it was pointless. Texas de Brazil makes this place look like a Golden Corral.

Not sure if the reason why we hardly ever saw the person serving meat was because of the section we were at or by the time it got to us all the meat was gone. The service was ok server asked if we wanted more bread but never brought them. By the time we got the meat selection we water our mash potatoes were cold however the meats and over all food was good. I’m not sure if I go back or go back as hungry as I was.
