It was okay. Me & my husband went for our Anniversary during restaurant week. It was a full house. At some moments we were waiting awhile to be served slices of meats. But overall it wasn’t a bad experience. I would go again.

It is a quite nice place where to go to taste some Brazilian meat. Overall it is a bit pricy for the quality of the offer, but I still suggest to try it.

The server was horrible. We had to multiple times request a wine menu (did not bring this automatically nor offer our table this as is normally customary for this restaurant). We we waited for more than 20 minutes for drinks (a bottle of wine) and again more than 25 minutes for the bill. The restaurant was not busy in comparison to the weekend yet the server appeared either nonchalant or just indifferent to us as guests. Very poor experience. Only saving grace was the food itself.

We always love visiting Fogo. The food can’t be beat and this visit did not disappoint. Love the market bar with fresh cheeses, meats, salad and soup. The table side options were delicious. My only wish is that I remembered to bring a sweater this time. It’s always cold in there!

We went for restaurant week, what a bargain for only $35. The salad bar itself was worth it. It was my first time dining here. The servers could not have been more attentive, offering food non-stop. The beef was delicious, not a surprise for a steak house. The chicken and pork were ok. My friends raved about the lamb, but I didn’t try it. I could not eat for almost 24 hours after dining here, as I was stuffed! I would suggest this restaurant for a special occasion or is you like all you can eat restaurants ..and also recommend you save all your calories for your visit!

Not all of the meat that was supposed to be included was served. No pork was brought out while we were there and I kept having to ask if the lamb was going to be brought out anytime soon. The steak was not seasoned at all and tasted like they just through it on the grill. One cut of the steak we tried was tough like shoe leather and the pineapple chicken was very dry. The only thing my boyfriend and I enjoyed was the lemonade drink from the bar and the sausage. Many friends recommended this place so I took my boyfriend for his birthday and I was very embarrassed. I went to a place in Floroda called Texas De Brazil and that was 1000x better. Very disappointed.

The food that is wasted is ridiculous. My party didn’t touch our sides (mashed potatoes and fried polenta) but we weren’t allowed to take them. They prefer to throw the food in the garbage. I was very disappointed.

We were harassed at the end of the night when we left by our server after we paid. She accused us of skipping out on the bill until she realized we left more than enough money including a tip. I was very discussed and saddened that she would accuse of something like that.

Went for the first time during restaurant week and had an amazing time. Although there was a good crowd and close seating the atmosphere was pleasing and there wasn't any problem conversing with my wife in private. Will be back for sure.

The service was outstanding! Between Alvie and Aimee we were made so comfortable and the level of service of unbelievable! The food was absolutely excellent and we left very satisfied (and full!). The meats were tasty, the salad bar was amazing and while it was a bust night, we fully enjoyed the experience.

Service was overwhelming and not in a good way. Everything felt SO rushed and lacked attention to detail. I’ve been here before, and other Brazilian steakhouses, but guests in our party had not and the experience was NOTHING like I remember. No explanation of the food, meats, salad bar, process, etc. lackluster service was disappointing but then the environment was equally as disturbing. We were sat by a door that persistently opened for chairs that were continuously dragged by us and the curtains kept flying up onto the tables. Bathrooms were DISGUSTING! The entire time!! And we got there at the beginning of dinner service at 5:15pm. Way too bright of lighting, cramped tables and even then we didn’t get all we asked for... Servers would literally take plates too quickly putting hands onto eating areas prior to the food being consumed. Sides were burnt. Dessert was dropped in pieces and our ‘birthday’ surprise was made totally awkward when one cake got dropped and then announcing oh yeah, your special piece is coming... all around disappointing service, environment and foods. I could go on and on... it was simply a VERY disappointing experience. Def rethinking FoGo & won’t be recommending anytime soon to anyone.

Too loud on a Saturday night. Too many tables and they are too close to each other. Its impossible to establish a conversation. Would recommend going at another time.

The only problem I had was that I called to change my reservation to 7 instead of 6 and when I actually got there they said it was never put in, the lady told me that it was no problem and we got seated shortly after. And everything was still fast and everyone was really nice, and the food was great.

I have been here a few times and this experience was sub par. The service was great but the meats were not where they usually are. I had to ask for several different kinds of meat. But we were paying top dollar.
