Have eaten at this restaurant 3 times in a two month period, usually service and experience have been top notch this time it was not. I understand I was here for Thanksgiving but I’m not sure what was going on. I had a table to myself and maybe that was the issue although I would’ve thought that would’ve been easier. My reservation was for 4:15 I got there early but was sat around that time no issues. I was sat and it took about 10 minutes for someone to come and greet me. As usual you get your salad and when you’re ready for the meat to start coming you turn your card over. I’d say it was about 15-20 min before any meat started to come and then when my waiter came they asked on three different occasions if there was something particular I would like I told each of them the top sirloin and they all said we would get someone over. I looked at my watch and the first time I got that particular cut was at 5:45. Getting a refill of water was an issue. I had warm feelings when staff was coming over to see if I needed anything but it’s like they forget and never returned. All and all the food I did receive was ok but I didn’t feel like for what I paid I got the experience I’m used too. I definitely didn’t get all cuts of meet this time. Ended up leaving not by choice at 6:05 that is not a two hour experience.

Buffet counters were repeatedly empty. Very few servers with food. We were there 2.5 hours with 2 hours of that spent waiting on staff, waitress, and any other employee to be in range of our sight. This was not the experience we were familiar with as the Atlanta location is always on point. No idea what happened in New Orleans

Went for my birthday again. It was wonderful at first. We were seated at 7:30 finished eating at 9. People stopped coming around to us with food at 8:30. Took forever to get sides and we were only served them once. At 9 we were done eating and it took until 9:45 to get the check which totally ruined my birthday night cause we were 45 minutes behind for the next event. I think I’ll pass on this for my birthday next year.

Don’t let them sit you in the far back! We waited for over 45 mins to experience the chefs bring the meat out. It wasn’t until I asked to speak to the manager that they started bringing the meats. This was after I’d ask the waiter several times to remind the chefs that we were there for the experiences

The manager (I’m guessing that was him) thought that providing two complimentary cocktails, valued at $16 dollars would suffice. Smh I happily paid my 195 bill, and left. Will not be returning.

I remember Fogo de Chao in Brazil…this is a subdued versions. It is not bad…but buffet was scarce( not replenished), meat was good …but little variety…and the polenta, based potatoes they brought ( with the fried bananas )was “ minimal”. On the plus side: staff was very attentive, dessert( flan) was superb and it was quiet

Fogo de Chao was a good experience. We got the option to try different meats and sides. I would have liked my waitress to check in on me more. Another waitress took the time to tend to my needs. It took almost an hour for us to get our check and leave when we were done eating.

The first waiter we had was a rockstar. Unfortunately whoever took over basically ignored us and made us wait for drinks. We waited 40 minutes for the waiter to tell us they didn't have our drinks. Then we were given watered down drinks and lukewarm coffee. Not a good experience for the cost paid.

The service here is absolutely atrocious! The hostess has an nasty attitude and does not greet any customer. She keeps her head down the entire time and does not acknowledge anyone. When seated you sit for 45 minutes and food never comes. It’s unfortunate in such a city where so many love it that the customer service has really gone downhill so much. They want to charge you high prices But provide terrible service and cannot produce food that they advertise.

We waited 30 min for drinks after arrival-one was completely wrong when it arrived. Waited another 20 min for a different drink, ordered a diet coke that never arrived

Never was offered another drink nor a refill at any time during the meal

Was never offered a clean plate after my salad, ended up using my small plate to eat off of for all meats.

Waited another 20 min AFTER i asked for check for it to be brought to me.

Not sure if it was understaffing or incompetence. Never had this experience at what i thought was a fine dining establishment before.

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.
