We went there to celebrate a couple of folks' birthdays and had a blast. Food and service were excellent. We even got to watch a jazz parade for a wedding that was occurring in the hotel.

What food we got was delicious; we just didn’t get very much and the wait staff were very poor. No drink refills were, no side dish refills when we requested them. We purchased the “Full” experience (times 5!) but no filet mignon or other prime cuts showed up. All we were offered was mostly Sirloin and chicken varieties. No sausages, etc
The Chophouse and Desi Vegas both blew them away for both service and food. This is my first negative review of any Open Table restaurant but my first experience with Fogo was terrible.

Celebrated another birthday, this time for a nephew. Everything was wonderful- as usual- cocktails, succulent meats, fresh abundant items on the salad bar, and of course, those addictive cheese breads!

Yes, but I would caution a friend to check on valet parking. We have been to the Canal Street location several times and valet parking was always provided in the front of the restaurant - not on Common Street. There were 3 cars waiting for valet service. Finally, my husband who was walking w/o cane for the first time in months, went into the restaurant and then thru the hotel to learn that we had to pull the car around. He then had to trudge back. The following day, he was back to a cane. Sadly, the reason we chose the restaurant is because of the front door valet. I was quite outspoken about my disappointment and no apology was offered. Not a complimentary cocktail, dessert or too bad lady! Not the Fogo de Chao I remember.

The food was wonderful. A variety of cuts of meat was continuously brought around. If the cook style of the meat was not available, the gaucho would go back to the kitchen for that style.

Been to Brazilian Steakhouse in Nashville and Austin, they were great. In NOLA we had to continually ask for more meat etc.. The food quality wasn’t that great, poor variety. Won’t go back.

Vickie, we are shocked to hear this, as our team should consistently be offering our variety of cuts. We hope you don't allow this one instance to detour you from giving us second chances in the future.

This was my 10th or 11th time here and the past two experiences have been the same... very bad. When you pay over 50$ just to start and your server never comes back with water or to take a wine order, well it would make most upset. I even tried to locate a manager and no one could seem to find one. Probably will not be returning after this.

Was not greeted upon initially entering restaurant. But once seated the service was excellent. Brunch did not include everything advertised like waffles and omelettes. But overall the food was delicious. Service at table was superb.

Good food. However, if your reservation is closer to closing, you probably won’t get to sample all of the meats. We were looking forward to the lamb, and it was never brought to us- even after requesting it from our waiter. Disappointing, but what we did have, was great.

Our table was not ready. They told us to go sit at the bar. Then asked if we wanted to stay at the bar. We said no. Then were put at a table in the corner next to the kitchen. They were out of menus and it took 3 attempts to get the wine list and my date did not get her glass till we were finished eating. I asked for the check early as we had other plans after dinner. It took 3 attempts to get the check and we still ended up having to wait. It was very upsetting for the price of 170$ for 2.

Everyone seemed confused on who was helping. Our main waitress rarely came by. I believe 4 or 5 different people came by to check on us. We never knew who was waiting on us.

We had a great dinner. The service was fantastic, staff are excellent. They closed the restaurant around us whilst we ordered more wine and we finally noticed it was time to go. Place is very clean. Food was great, the salad bar had so many good choices, the pepper brown sugar bacon is a must to eat. The meats were plentiful and cooked to perfection and they accommodate to your preference too. Well done to rare.
If you've not been then you need to put this place on your list of places to go.

I wish they would bring more medium rare steak and also more of the parmesan pork. It’s so good!!! And maybe not so cold inside it’s FREEZING but otherwise we really love it.
