Sadly this experience was just ok. We ordered wagyu ribeye and got the NY strip. Obviously this was not my first steak but the staff swore it was ribeye. I would have rather they just admitted the mistake and moved on instead of lying to my face. We accepted the NY strip and the steak lacked season but was other wise cooked appropriately. The potatoes were good too. Our server didn’t speak English too well but she was delightful and tried her best. The lady manager was nice but the male manager was a hot mess. Overall a nice place with good ambience but the food was just ok, sadly.

Wonderful food and love the concept. The carmelized bananas were a perfect sweetness in between the savory bits of meat. The only thing weird was having to wear gloves when at the buffet. But of course that is COVID.

Had not been in a long time! We really enjoyed ourselves! The staff was very attentive. Just not the usual experience with these damn masks-have to ask the meat servers to repeat themselves almost every time. Cannot be helped I know it’s a pandemic. I also could’ve used another glass of wine-not sure why this seems to be another Covid practice? One round of drinks & done. Yet if you’re drinking soft drinks or tea, they’re pouring! Notice it every where I go…

Great food and service. However, none of the managers visited my table of 9 guests and one manager kept pointing to my table while speaking to some of the server as if we were taking too long to finish our experience. He did this on three occasions that I saw; it was very frustrating and unprofessional. But, I can’t be sure of his conversation but his body gestures suggested he was asking something of the sort.

I made reservations for the birthday guest but no one acknowledged it. I told the hostess and she said she will tell the waiter or waitress. Without making it obvious, I waited awhile and no one said anything. I told the hostess again and she said oh she forgot. But again no one said anything. Not even after I paid the bill. I was expecting something more than ok. But hey, I guess I can ask for anything but the meat I'm served.

I’m not trying to be picky however when paying $56 plus a person I should not have to ask 4 times for limes. Also there was 3 different times either one or two of us at the table did not have a plate. The people going around with the meat had to tell the servers to get us plates. This does make for a unpleasant experience for that issue. However like I said the meat was hot, tasty and cooked perfect. When we ask the server to a certain type of meat the table received it with a proper amount of time.
We have ate at this restaurant many of times and do plan on going back. But just the little things need some polishing. Please feel free to contact me 330-268-6355 Ken.

Everything was overcooked. I mean well done. I asked for medium to medium rare temperature, but everything came out well done, and tough as a boot! I told my server, but he did nothing about it. The food came out extremely slow. I wish I had a do over, I would have gone elsewhere!

Your cuts should always be cooked and prepared to your specifications, so it's disappointing to hear you kept receiving what you didn't order. Please allow us the chance to work towards your complete satisfaction, as we hope you decide to visit us again.

First time guest to Fogo. Service was over the top - meaning we were approached numerous times by staff if we needed anything, however they were respectful but not intrusive. It appeared to be a “training day” with corporate visiting. Excellent selection at the Market Table. As a first time guest I felt a bit rushed because my dinner entree was brought to the table so quickly. Will know better next time. Overall - very good.

I went here with a group for my birthday and the food was great. But the service was HORRENDOUS. Our server had absolutely no idea what was going on. It took him forever to even just come take our order. Once we got our food, we didn’t see him again. On top of that, we all had the full experience and they only were bringing 3 different cuts and at a very very slow pace. When another server came to ask if we needed anything and we let him know we were still wanting cuts (mind you, this was 2 hours before the closed. not at the end). He went and told the manager, who came to talk to us. When we told him we hadn’t seen our server, his response was “Well he’s doing side work.” 2 hours before closing and this server had multiple big tables still there. When we asked for the check, it took an additional 25 minutes when it’s just done on a little table side device. Most of us work in the service industry so we are very patient and understanding, but it was ridiculously awful service. I feel bad even about writing this review but I was just so disappointed.

Highly recommend getting the experience ($55) which is all you can eat. They were practically attacking us with food and my entire party was completely satisfied at the end of our meal. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The food was delicious. I would definitely come back if I were to visit New Orleans again.

Lamb and sirloin were all fantastic, as were the mashed potatoes. Service was great in terms of the guys bringing meat but I had an empty drink for nearly 20 minutes which I found disappointing. I felt the chicken options were a bit dry and it was a shame the filet didn't come out until we were nearly stuffed but all in all it was a good night. My recommendation is to tell them early if there's a cut you're especially looking forward to.
