The best part of the experience is the way the food moves in the room and the smile on the face of someone trying new dishes and traditional meats. The ambiance is always amazing and the service is what you expect from a night of fine dining.

Mother’s Day was expected to be a crowded day, but we got seated on time, thou it took some time for the meat to start to go around our table, Fogo delivered as always!

I understand that this was an extenuating circumstance, and we intend to dine here again in the future and hope this was a one off occurrence.

We had an 8:30pm reservation, and were not seated until 9:45pm. With the new restrictions, it was outdoor dining only, and it seems they overbooked, but it is ridiculous that we were not allowed water at the very least to be served inside so we had to sit for over an hour waiting before we were seated.

For the amount of money we spent, I expected the dress code to be enforced a bit more. Outfits ranged from business casual / cocktail attire to what someone would wear to the gym. Noise level was loud and tables were very close together in the outdoor seating, as well the tables were fairly small so we felt pretty cramped while dining.

The food was excellent, as to be expected and was certainly the highlight of the dining experience. We had the Churrasco Experience which was a delight, although our waiter rushed through explaining it and rarely stopped by to check on us. By the time we got a chance to try a few of the cuts it was late enough that the kitchen seemed to be closing down so we didn't really get the chance to indulge in our favorites.

All in all, we ended up leaving at 11:30pm, from an 8:30pm reservation. Management never stopped by during or after the meal to apologize for the delay in seating, and while they mentioned taking care of the drinks before we were sat, our bill was full price.

All in all, I truly hope this was a one off experience, and we will certainly be dining again once the restaurant reopens for indoor seating as the food was excellent. I just wish the service matched the price tag.

Historically I did like this place so I wanted to treat my family to a similar experience. However this one fell far short of past dining experiences. The wait staff were generally fine but only one guy really stood out and I wish I got his name to recognize him, the rest seemed annoyed to be having to come around and slice you a portion of your dinner. Water service was always upon request and never simply brought around yet the two booze carts made a combined dozen trips or so past our table. In regard to the meat service, it took the first wait staff member at least 20 minutes to come by, from then on it was still very slow, past experiences were the exact opposite. One waitress came around and we had 4 people at the table, when serving one person she would get ready to run away and ask if "we" wanted any more; as if the 2 oz cut should have been shared. The wait staff were very disorganized. Our initial waiter was not seen until the end. At the end of the meal we had 4 different members ask if we wanted dessert after having ordered some with the very kind gentleman. We were over charged on two occasions, only one I caught. We were billed for items we did not order which were taken care of and appreciated, however, we were dining with two kids under the age of 12 yet charged full price. Not once did the waiter think to ask (maybe they are trained not to) how old the kids are. I think they ate literally two slices of of meat before being full, paying $116 for that and a small trip to the salad bar is absurd. Also, the quality of the meat seems to have degraded, it also seemed to lack much flavor/seasoning on the vast majority of the cuts. I still really enjoy the salad bar, I think that was the highlight for me. We won't be back, there's a lot of options in the area that are better in quality, service and are not only less expensive but better accommodate families without trying to make an extra buck.

Sat us but no one seemed to know who was to take care of us. 30 minutes to get beverages, 1 hour to get my wife’s dinner. Never shown desert tray, had to ask for dessert. We were behind the service station, servers were crowded in and it was not Covid compliant in any way. The people were very nice but no one even noticed how frustrated we were. Only able to order 1 drink and we were there2 1/2 hours. It was our wedding anniversary and this was extremely disappointing. I sent a customer service complaint but no response.

My boyfriend and I have been many times and each visit is always special. We love the meat selections, gourmet salad bar, and the service is exceptional. We always ask for the beef ribs and the staff will bring out a big plate. Management checks in several times throughout your meal to ask how things are going and if you need anything. I love coming here and always walk away very happy and looking forward to the next time.

There is no way they are following public health laws in our area. The place is just as full as pre pandemic. Capacity was just reduced in Washington county to 25 percent today and the whole place is packed at full capacity. I get it places need to make money but how close everyone is during covid is concerning. Food is AMAZING like always. Friendly service but long waits because they have sooo many people. If pre pandemic dining is okay with you it’s a must try! Highly recommend the food just be aware of capacity

We went there on a Wednesday night, I felt they did a great job of keeping everyone safe for covid, you have to wear disposable gloves each time you go to the salad bar. Etc. however their salad bar was willfully inadequate and was running out of food items.. the meats were over cooked and our waiter would take a long time to checking on us. It was basically $80 per person which I don’t mind paying but there was a lack of variety and the quality was not there. Totally disappointed.. we’re Brazilian bbq aficionados too!
