Busy and fun atmosphere. Made a last minute reservation as we were in the area and wanted a good meal. 3rd time I have dined at this location and have had a good experience all 3 times. The meat selection was delicious as was the salad bar. Service was very good, attentive staff. I don't know why they tried to seat us all the way in the back and immediately next to a serving station but, in my opinion, that is for for kids and unkept guests. We requested to be moved before we sat and they took us all the way across the restaurant and gave us a better seating situation.

It's all about the meat! But they also have a great salad bar and it's always a pleasure to return here.

We had a Friday evening 6:15p rsv. Although many were waiting, we were seated within 5 minutes. The place was packed and a bit noisy, but the service was exquisite and the food so delicious! We loved it and noticed many large parties there. We were amazed at the attention we received, even though the restaurant was so crowded. Go! Enjoy! It's a fun experience.

I took my son to Fogo de Chao Portland for a Saturday night dinner for his first experience. Overall, the experience was great and we were very pleased with the quality of the food and the friendliness of the staff. The only negative was that we were seated right next to the market table, on a corner table right in the main walkway. There was a great deal of foot traffic from servers and patrons. Also, with our location, we had to ask for certain cuts of meat. The servers were typically out of the premium cuts when they walked by.
I've been to Fogo de Chao several times before and this was the first time we've had to ask. We had to ask for the Filet at least twice before we got it and were only offered the Ribeye once throughout our visit. We will be back, but hope to be seated at a more quiet, relaxing and better serviced table.

Most unique restaurant I have ever visited. Truly authentic cuisine and atmosphere. The aroma of grilled beef greeted me as we entered along with the pleasant staff. The salad bar presented true South American flavor and variety, from the cured meats to the spicy peppers. Gauchos delivered a steady stream of juicy grilled meats that were cooked to perfection. The wine selection is excellent. We were both well fed and entertained. Such a casual and satisfying experience! Bravo!

Best steak we have had in many years!! Delicious rib eye, their lamb steak is amazing, the pork with cheese is juicy! For drinks, I recommend their capirina, the coconut is the best. Desserts, I like the key lime pie, best I have ever had! Their shrimp is also a 10

Great night at Fogo. Justin did an excellent job making wine recommendations! He also saved us from consuming dairy in one of the cocktails that were offered table side. Very attentive server and the food was great as always.

Arrived early, gave two different hosts our name. Waited 30 minutes to be seated: reason, no servers available yet. None of the meats presented were cooked-nearly raw: reason, wasn't prepared for 5:00 guests, salad bar was set up. Then I get an email from open table that I didn't show up for my reservation. This place is too risky for a nice dinner experience.

With my second visit to Fogo de Chao within a year I can say that, sadly, it is going downhill.
The restaurant is crowded, packed too close together, and extremely loud. The food is pretty good, although we did encounter some cuts of steak that were filled with sinews. However, the signature drinks (caiparinha) are watered down, so the overall value for money does not translate very well. The service is mostly good, but some of the servers are pretty rude when saying no to a cut of meat while the sign is green; green means it's OK to offer food, but that doesn't mean that the customer must have it!
It was a nice gesture that two desserts were comped because of a 54th wedding anniversary in our party.

We loved it! And you can easily over eat here, so be aware! Service was amazing, and the grilled meats, and salad bar were great! Love that you can get smoked salmon and beets (two of my favorites) at the salad bar. A really fun experience!

The meat is amazing and service was very good. They need more room. With everyone walking around there’s not enough space. They should also tell you if there is an extra charge for anything they are handing out (the pineapple drink was almost $12 for a small glass we thought was a tasting and don’t even finish)

If ambiance and a relaxing dinner is what your seeking, Fogo de Chau isn’t the place.

If a continuing selection of steaks and meat is all you want this is your place.

Great service and delicious food. It was difficult not to get full off of the cheesy bread and buffet bar. And the bacon at the buffet was to die for. I wanted to eat the entire vat. Thank you Steve, the server with many musical talents. You were wonderful.

This was our third time at Fogo de Chao. The first time our experience was great. Good service, the unique food. We had fun. The second time was lunch. The meat choices were not great and we kept getting missed by the servers. This time we weren’t offered meat sauces which would have helped significantly with the salty meat and we noticed meat - like ribs- running around but we never were offered them. I know it was crazy busy but they need a better system. The experience, for the price, was subpar and has lost its uniqueness. Not recommended.

We always love Fogo! There are so many foods to choose from even if you don't get the meat added option to the Market Table. Great place for groups or a special date with your special someone.

Dinner can be quite expensive. Bartender suggested we come back for lunch since you can get the same prime cuts for a lower price. Wasn’t impressed with the bottle of Colomé Merlot we ordered. Always ask the server to bring you a specific cut that your party wants and they’ll bring it over to you happily. Overall, not bad but not great either. Services was fabulous, but the food and price point left something more to be desire....

The food was really good, and overall a pretty nice service. I just have a complain.. I really liked the grill cheese and the cheese bread and I asked for more several times and they came to me when we were almost ready to go. At the beginning they were really attentive but after a round they forgot about us... overall the taste of everything was delightful

Far from a relaxing meal. I never mind paying for good food and good service but next time I want a steak, I’m going back to Morton’s or Ruth Chris. Better steaks, better service and I’m not interrupted every 3 minutes.

It is a fun place to eat. The atmosphere is lively and relaxed. The service by Sylvie save the day. We started with someone who was clearly new. Sylvie took over and then got much better. The cuts of meat are wonderful and lots of variety.
We finished off with the lava cake. Yum!

Kept us waiting 20 minutes after we arrived even with a reservation. Wine list is an abomination with ridiculously overpriced wines - $12 retail wines going fir over $50. Very difficult to find anything worth buying on the wine list. Food was great as is expected from Fago. Overall a 4 star experience, but overpriced. Better value for money elsewhere.
