We (party of 12) went to Fogo de Chao for restaurant week. It was the first time for most of us. For such a big party they were so accommodating and were swift with our orders. The food was delicious and the service was fantastic. The entire culture was very warm and inviting. Definitely recommend and will be returning!

The salmon was flavorful, the chicken salad is my absolute favorite, and the service was excellent. Wynam (spelling) was professional, knowledgeable of the offerings, and attentive, as well as her colleagues.

It was pretty busy when we went probably because of restaurant week. Service was solid. The meats weren’t exactly what I was expecting, some weren’t that good but it was solid enough.

Fogo is one of my favorite restaurants and special event venues, from holiday parties to outings with family. My most recent visit was the absolute best. The food was spectacular - even if you don't go for the full experience, the market table alone is worth the visit. All of the staff are amazing, attentive, and knowledgeable. Chef Michael came out personally to visit the tables and let patrons sample his incredible new dish, a grilled mozzarella with honey. When we asked if there was any more parmesan pork left, he sent out another round of the most delicious parmesan pork I've ever tasted. It was heavenly. A visit to Fogo is guaranteed to be a real treat, and with a team including Chef Michael, this Philadelphia location is one of my all time favorites. I can't wait to visit again.

It is not as good as it use to be....the salad bar is still very good. It was restaurant week...and the 35.00 doesn't include filet or the lamb chops...too confusing for the gentleman serving the meats....potatoes were cold...second order just as cold. Note parking is now 24.00 not the 21.00 posted on web site.

Amazing meats. Everything they put onto my plate was delicious. Truly the best meat I've had in a long, long time. Restaurant Week is a superb deal. Ultimately about $45 for all-you-can-eat, fantastic steaks, sausages, and sides. Would go again at full price.

Overpriced. Every piece of meat was extremely salty. I’d rather go to a real steakhouse. There is only so much one can eat... the salad bar was good.

Fogo de Chao never disappoints! The salad bar is amazing and full of unique dishes and the meats are decadent! This is the first time we saved room for dessert; we got the chocolate molten cake...amazing!

The service this time was not as dedicated to our experience as in the past. We had to wait extended times for new plates and water refills. Historically, service has been top notch.

I took my two teen daughters there to experience a Brazilian Steakhouse. They were beyond happy. The wait staff was great. Chef Michael was extremely friendly and made us all feel very welcome and special. There was also a Gentleman who was in charge of Customer Service who was very attentive as well. It was a great night out with my daughters.

Service was not to the level we usually experience. Very slow service getting drinks for the table. Food was excellent as always. This is the first time I've been there where the service was not 5/5.

Wouldn’t recommend now. This place used to
Be a go to for my annual business dinner event. Although waiter / waitress were very pleasant and accommodating we waited 20 minutes before anyone came to see if we needed anything. Had to continue to ask to be served. As soon as you walk through the front door , the building smelled like a old dive bar. Lysol and moldy rags. The speed of service and ambiance not what it used to be.

I and the others at my table were passed over several times by the gauchos. We were seated in the back room so their circulation was limited; and then, for them to not even look at our table before rushing out of the room with half a spit was rather frustrating. I had to get our server's attention and get her to round up the gauchos (cuts of meat) I was interested in. In the future, I would refuse a table in that back room.

Went to Fogo de Chao for a birthday dinner. Generally good experience. The food was all delicious. The steaks and gaucho-carved meats were all tender and flavorful. The fresh food bar had delicious salads and side items. Had a great cocktail and enjoyed the lovely ambiance in the restaurant as well. My only two complaints are that our main waiter seemed to be stretched a bit thin with too many tables and wasn’t super attentive when it came to clearing used plates and for whatever reason it was EXTREMELY warm in the restaurant which made it a bit uncomfortable at times. Thankfully we were near the main entrance and would occasionally get a nice gust of cold exterior air to cool the area down.

It was a great experience and really good food. Overall I was happy with the food. I was a bit put off from requesting an certain meat category and we didn’t receive it sooner if not at all till the end of our experience. Chef Michaels pork ribs were very delicious and his overall presentation and explanation of how he cooked them was overall just mouth watering as well as the taste of the meat.

Disappointing. Service was lousy and food off the mark. Informed hostess but little changed and no real apology.
Got iced tea and begged for sweetener. Took 20 minutes to place drink order and 10 minutes to then get. Never brought sides. Had to ask for clean plates between salad and meat service. Too expensive for this level attention and quality.
Too unapologetic when concerns were politely raised. And too many other options.

There was not anywhere near the variety of meat choices they advertise- don’t be fooled- no ribs of any kind, only one type of chicken on the bone only seen walking around one time in two hours- I had to ask the server walking around with lamb every 3 minutes to please bring me some chicken. It was basically four choices with the pork sausage being constantly at the table. Not happy for the price you pay for the “total experience”
