We were there for Pittsburgh Restaurant Week. Our service was very slow and we felt like we were being ignored by the entire team of servers, it was almost 15 minutes before we received glasses of water, the bartender was unfriendly and unpleasant, almost all of the meat was way over cooked, it took more than 30 minutes for us to get our desserts to go and our checks, and the bathrooms were awful. One of the two sinks was broken, neither soap dispenser worked and there were no paper towels. This was not worth the $35 I paid during Restaurant Week. It definitely wouldn't be worth the normal menu prices.

Service was friendly but extremely slow. Took more than 40 minutes to get a drink. Food was ok. Since it was restaurant week menu the Top Sirloin was much more abundant than the other cuts of meat. The bacon wrapped chicken and Parmesan Pork were the best what we had.

We went in hopes of getting the Fogo Month deal, but were slightly surprised to find out it excluded many of the gaucho items. We had looked online, heard commercials, etc. and there was no mention of this. Even outside on the large sign promoting the deal it was extremely small print. I would recommend including more information for people who are unlikely to ask about the promotion before ordering and then are unhappy with the meal or unable to pay the bill. We ended up with the standard selection and the food was delicious. Servers were excellent and timely.

My husband and I celebrated our birthdays. It was a Tuesday night, so i was a little worried the service would be less when compared to the weekend. However, the service was the same if not better than a typical busy weekend. I especially like their lamb, and the guy made sure he brought me plenty. They even had lamb steak in addition to the normal leg of lamb and lamb chops. It was all perfectly cooked. Also loved the molten lava cake for dessert. You will not be disappointed! They also give you validation for the parking behind the restaurant (there is a sign for fogo parking). Just get the ticket on the way out.

We have dined at this location over 30 times since opening. Most of the regular gauchos were off and the others working seemed to treat us well. The team service aspect didn't seem to work this time around (and even our previous visit.) Our lead server didn't bring water over until after we started eating, and then our cocktails arrived after that. 4 of us had the Restaurant Month deal and I ordered the full experience since I had a birthday email. The chimichurri and horseradish cream didnt arrive until we were close to being done. When the bill was presented we were given a single tab with the option of separating it ourselves. Easy enough to do with the exception of not being able to apply a discount code ourselves and when you use a credit card, it prompts a gratuity of the original total bill..not cool. That is an easy slip up of adding an extra huge gratuity. I enjoy using the tablet to pay so we don't have to wait for the server to pay, but maybe separate tablets would be faster.

Food was delicious excellent. Seating was slow despite reservations. There was essentially no server tending the table. The “gauchos” serving the meat were great. But they kept bringing the lowest quality meats over and over and you had to ask for the better cuts as they would never show up. They need real servers tending tables in addition to those serving meats. If you want a drink or desert you might as well forget it. Been here four times now and it is always the same. Great meat and literally no service. You have to beg to get your check. The new electronic payment system is great

It was great but believe it or not a little too much service.
We were interrupted all the time when we were having conversation. Not with the meat but ever server that passed by. It became a bit much. Although everyone was wonderful it was just over the top and became annoying
Other than that we were very pleased.

We were celebrating a family reunion and Fogo was a great place to meet. The food is amazing and everyone found a favorite cut ( eve little picky eaters). Luis and Nicolas were very attentive and made sure everyone was having a good time and even brought some strawberries to our kid so she could have dessert ( all the tasty desserts have milk and she is allergic). Thank you!

Our waitress was not responsive to any of our needs. She failed to bring water to us for several minutes. After taking our order, her responsibility seemed to end. She never brought us mashed potatoes. A different gentleman dropped off a bowl of potatoes but we had to ask for it. When it came time to pay the bill she brought us the wrong one which I should of taken since it was about $150 less than my actual bill. We had to reach out to the hostess as our server was no where to be seen after she dropped off the wrong ticket. I do commend the various gentlemen serving us the cut meats. Once I asked for well done they instantly started to bring me that temperature of cooked meat. They were polite and engaging.

I love this place, truly a fun experience, plan to eat nothing all day and take your time dining. Don’t be afraid to tell the staff what you are hoping to sample they are very friendly but if you are not willing to communicate your cut of meat might not come out for over an hour

Well the "buffet" part was very empty and only had rice beans in the hot section cold stuff was very picked over and for it being a sat it should not have been. The waitress explained our order and never came back we had to ask multiple ppl to bring meats to our table cause they were not serving alot we did do the 49 person and hardly hot meat at our table. The water guy spilled water on my plate and said opps and walked away left it there horrible finally someone got our waitress to give us the check as she could see we didnt eat didnt seem to care gave us the tablet to pay waited over my husband's shoulder and said ya there is were u put the tip um he being him gave her a tip but as soon as he put it in she walked away we had to ask the busser to get us a receipt she just left the tablet and that was it she got her money and was out over all bad experiences and I see why texas de Brazil is always packed very good food and very personable I spent 200 here and ruined my bday dinner I will make sure no one I know eats here

Had Sunday brunch with a group of friends. All loved the experience. All of us partook of the $28.95 Market Table Brunch which was recently upgraded to include a made-to-order omelet station and mini Belgian waffles. If you've not experienced the Market Table which is available during every meal time, it includes offerings you wouldn't believe featuring seasonal salads, soups, exotic vegetables, smoked salmon, imported cheese and more. All high quality ingredients...this ain't no Holiday Inn salad bar! :)

I eat here at least once a month and the place always seems to improve! Although I didn't care for the "extra" ingredients in the chicken salad, the place still hit the spot!

We arrived and told the hostess our name. She looked at her list and said "oh, hang on" and left to find a table.

The lights are way too bright for any soft ambience--thought the cleaning crew might be coming in. Service very uneven. The waiter was new, so some can be forgiven. Drinks were forgotten. Was on main course when my preprandial finally arrived. There are no aperitifs--none! We got all the way through dinner with only one glass of wine; never offered another.

We went up to the charcuterie island and someone who didn't know what caper berries are, planted the sign far over next to the wrong item. I fixed that. Then we saw soup, which unlike other things, one cannot identify by sight, but there was no sign. It was ginger-carrot soup--great, but there were no bowls. And none appeared when I checked back. Finally, I grabbed a waiter who said "we're working on that".

The Gauchos who deliver the various main course meats attempted to service it on the, now dirty, plates from the charcuterie island. We had to ask for clean plates.

We got mashed potatoes, polenta, and fried bananas long before main course. I thought it strange there were no fried plantains. Then after eating these and before the main courses arrived, we were asked if we wanted dessert. But after eating the main courses, we were told that the kitchen staff was gone and there was no dessert. There were people who had arrived after us still eating. Luckly two managers overheard and were astounded. They got us deserts.

At least no one asked us if we were "still working on that?"

Luckily we were in a good mood and were laughing. We felt sorry for the waiter who was very nice. It seems that two extra tables got assigned to him and he is new. Guess they were short of waiters and that's why we got the greeting at the door like deer in the headlights.

The food is good and we enjoyed it. Some of the other things are like the Three Stooges. No my first or last visit
