Dined here for my husband’s birthday. Servers were very friendly and attentive for the first half of our experience. Continued to be friendly throughout, but it took us over half an hour to get our check. I stated in the reservation that it was my husbands birthday, but was never asked at the location if we were celebrating anything. After the long wait for someone to check on us , we didn’t feel like staying for dessert anyway so just asked for the check. It was fairly busy, and as I said, everyone was very friendly. We just seemed to have been forgotten about for a period of time which made the experience go downhill.

We come every year for our anniversary. The service is usually really good. The only issue is that some of the cuts never make around to us until we ask for it.

Went here to celebrate my birthday Saturday. With all of the hype surrounding this place I had extremely high expectations. The overall experience was extremely disappointing. Our drinks took about 15 minutes before they came to the table and the salad bar was nothing special. The meats were incredible as they should be and the cheese bread was delicious as well. The service was good but not the type of place you wanna come for a nice dinner out with your husband. Disappointed and don’t plan on coming back.

The food was excellent. The issue was that the waiters/waitresses serving the meat would pass by our table until we alerted our main waitresses. There was one individual that walked by us for at least one hour until we were finally able to get her attention.

Excellent service. High quality drinks. And, oh, the meats!! The prime lamb, filet, and top sirloin were all fantastic. An absolute bargain for 35$ during Restaurant Week.

It was the first- time dining at Fogo de Chao, for myself and two friends. Since it was Center City Restaurant week; we were expecting it to be crowded and extremely busy, but the staff made you feel special. Did I mention the food and drinks were delicious? This is definitely a repeat restaurant choice.

Not sure if it was because we came during restaurant week, but the food didn’t seem as fresh in comparison to past visits. We received a shrimp cocktail with shrimp that felt and tasted like it had been sitting out all day.

The service was also subpar. We only saw our server once the entire night and our table never received the side plates that were supposed to come with our meal (e.g. caramelized bananas, mashed potatoes, etc.). Towards the end of our meal, it felt like we were being rushed to leave. It was my boyfriend’s first time at Fogo and I had raved to him about the restaurant, so this experience was a bit disappointing.

Waitor sat us down and never came back. Never took drink orders, cleared our plates, checked in on us, or asked about dessert. We needed to grab a worker ourselves to get all of that done.

For the restaurant week pricing of $35 it was worth it. I think it's around $45 at regular times and I don't know if it's worth it for that unless there are more options. The food was good and it was crowded since it was restaurant week. But I probably won't go back at the regular price.

It took a little while for the meats to start coming but once they did it was very good. The salad bar was fair but I was expecting more after all I had heard. A bit loud but not overly so. Try the lamb it is worth the trip by itself. Pleasant staff. Will come back again!

Food was ok- I guess bc it’s restaurant week. Same cuts of meat the whole time- slow to come out as well.

Service with the meats was very slow. Felt like we were sitting there waiting forever for meats to come by and all we wanted was steak. For a brazilian steakhouse the amount of times they bring steak is very minimal. We had to ask twice for someone to come by and still was very slow. Will not be coming back again

Great food, went during my restaurant week so they were really busy. Unfortunately that meant service was really slow. Make sure younger seated in the main room, the side rooms don't see as much of the servers on busy nights.

The place was especially busy so Food wasn’t always presented hot and the meat was usually out before it got to our table. Water wasn’t always filled but the place was busy.
