We had a reservation at 9pm. I received a call at 8:37pm asking if my party could be there at that instant because they close at 9pm. We got there and things went well but at the end the waiter put too much on her tray and a knife fell and cut my leg. That was not a fun way to end dinner but the food tasted great and the servers that were serving the meats were very accommodating and polite.

The food was ok but the meat service was slow (it appeared intentionally so) and the portions were extremely small so it wasn’t worth the money. Also- most of the beef was well done. We had to ask for medium rare and it took a long time. The staff was very, very hospitable but I won’t go back.

My daughter and I have been to Fogo de Chão New Orleans many times. Although we throughly enjoy the experience, I found that the meat was just not up to their usual excellence. Some of the meats were very fatty or had quite a bit of grissle and was just not very good. Also, they didn’t come around as often with the different choices of the meats as they usually do.

Because it was my daughter’s birthday and she loves the grilled cheese and honey they pass around, I asked if they could do something instead of a desert (weird, I know). They originally were going to put a cheese plate together with a “Happy Birthday” written somehow with the honey. Unfortunately, they didn’t do that but want out of their way to come around VERY often throughout the dinner to accommodate. Although she didn’t know that I made this request, she did notice that they were coming around MUCH more often with the cheese.

Great meat options, like always. A few hiccups with service, but nothing too bad. Right off Canal St., the dining room could have smelled better and facilities (like the bathroom) could have been cleaner. Not quite the experience as other Fogo de Chao locations I’ve visited, but this one certainly delivered a good meal.

The atmosphere was pleasant. I received a free dessert of my choice for my birthday. I will recommend this restaurant to family and friends.

My wife and I went to this restaurant to celebrate a special occasion and we had a decent experience. We observed that there were staff members who were really trying to fulfill their duties and others were not. The individuals who served the meat were really on top of their game and constantly came around. However, we noticed one staff member (wait staff or bus boy) having an extended conversation with a patron when there wasn't hand sanitizer or soap in the women's restroom. In addition, one of the wait staff seemed to really try, but another was not really engaged. Overall, I feel there were several good things that this establishment has to offer, but there is definitely a need to focus on details that one would expect when frequenting a restaurant of this caliber. Patrons are paying not only for good food, but for an experience as well.

I will recommend this restaurant in hopes that management will address the above items so this establishment can reach its potential.

Food was pretty good, but not great. Service was unbelievably slow. Our waitress completely forgot our drink order and had to be reminded of it, and then we had to tell her again what we wanted. We've eaten at Brazilian steak houses before, and usually they just assault you with round after round of a wide variety of meats. Not here, folks. They only seemed to have 2 guys bringing the meats around, despite the fact that the restaurant was completely full of guests. The wait in between rounds of meat was ridiculous. On top of that, in the entire time we were there, I only counted 7 different types of meat that they offered us, and 3 of them were chicken or pork! NOBODY GOES TO A BRAZILIAN STEAKHOUSE FOR CHICKEN AND PORK! Even so, I wouldn't have been so dissatisfied if they had at least had the proper level of service, but to make us wait 5+ minutes in between servings (especially when those servings of meat are only 3-5 bites) was really annoying. It made me think they were doing it on purpose, to make sure we filled up on the cheap sides from the salad bar, so we wouldn't want any more meat. Oh, I almost forgot, the mashed potatoes they brought out were cold. Even better, our original waitress just left for the night before we even finished, which only cemented the distinct impression we got that she really didn't care about us in any way. Definitely don't go here if you're used to good service, or if you've been to a REAL Brazilian Rodizio/steak house, where they do it right. The only thing I can guess, as to why this place has better reviews, is that maybe those customers who were impressed are used to places like Sizzler, or Golden Corral.

The salad bar was out of almost everything and not very appealing. The black beans were out, we asked for them to replenish and ended up with cold beans that had just been placed on the Shaffer. The meet was either really salty or really bland. The service was moderate with no dedicated server. I’ve been to Fogo many times before; just not this location and I have never had the low class experience that I received at this location. I’m guessing it’s because most of the staff are teenagers. If I ever visit NOLA again, I will steer clear of this place.

Omg! I have been hearing to try this steakhouse experience! Let’s just say they went over and beyond for my party. We had a party of 15 women. We all did the Fogo Churassco experience. It was amazing. We had every cut of steak you can think of and they kept it coming. The cheese bread was delicious as well. The salad, fruit, etc was delicious. The ambiance, customer service was top notch. Thank you Fogo De Chao for a wonderful experience. We will definitely be back.

We have been to this restaurant many times. Saturday night we took new guests and we’re disappointed at the service and the amount of times we were offered food or drink or pretty much anything. Also we ordered a bottle of wine that we were told was 50% off and were charged full price. Our waiter disappeared after 10 minutes and we only saw him one other time for the night. He isn’t listed our our receipt as our waiter bc we had to get most of the stuff ourselves such as wine menus from the hostess and silverware from other tables. We may not be returning for a while. Tried to call and explain and left a message with staff twice and received no return phone call.
