The waitstaff needed to coordinate better, the timing of food was inconsistent ranging from pushy to apathetic. I did like the single glove for people to use at the buffet but the person handing out the gloves went MIA for a bit and patrons were digging into the glove basket defeating the purpose. The hostess at the bottom of the stairs was aloof and blocking the stair case. The meats were a bit saltier than usual. The polenta sicks and amuse bouche cheese fried cheese and cheese bread were excellent. I think a dim sum approach to the buffet may have been better given the current covid health theater. I was left unaware of dessert options.

If you love meat, this is the place to visit!! We visited with our children and had a wonderful experience. We opted for the full experience and it was great. Meat was plentiful and there was something for everyone. Some cuts of meat were offered more frequently than others - it would be nice if it was more evenly offered. Other than that we will be back!

Food was excellent as usual. If you could get it. Service was not horrible, acceptable. I had to engage the manager in order to get the food. I had to engage the manager in order to get the table cleared and get the check. I’m a regular at Fogo. This was the worst experience I ever had at fogo. They were severely understaffed. It’s unacceptable and very very disappointing. This is hard to believe for fogo. What a disappointment.

It was good. Wish they had more side options that reflected Brazilian culture. There was one kind of rice and it was kinda hard. The selection of meats were amazing.

My friend and I had an amazing time!

A group of us came in, one of our guests was running really late but the staff was extremely accommodating and let us sit and start ordering drinks. Douglas and Rodrigo were our primary servers. They both provided excellent service and recommendations. The gentlemen walking around with the meat were also extremely polite and respectful when we said yes or no to the food they were offering. We already want to plan another outing to Fogo! Thanks to the kitchen for a wonderful meal and to the front of house for a great experience.

Everything about this experience was a 12/10. All the staff members are super friendly and personable, the food was delicious, the restaurant itself was great. We celebrated our anniversary and they went above and beyond to make it special for us, with champagne and strawberries and a dessert with “Happy Anniversary “ written on it.

Waited 20 mins to be seated, the place was very packed, I think it was over booked because I didn’t see much tables for the people who were waiting. The meat was good and the guys who brought it out were very nice and pleasant. Buffet because of Covid took over 10 mins to get some food so that was a one time trip. Overall it needs to be more organized and there wasn’t much options in the buffet

Been to fogo de chao once before and it was a great experience!

This time around was not great at all. I know there is still pandemic rules in affect but that should not be the reason why the food made me sick and the staff was so rude.

We had 3 different waiters try to push us to buy the seafood platter and they were visually insulted that I did not want to buy that. We bought the full experience already and did not want to buy more unnecessary food.

The food made me run to the bathroom twice during the night and it was unfortunate that I had this bad experience.

I hope this is just a pandemic flaw and once things are back to normal, so will fogo
