Overall great experience but we made reservations and was told by a young host that we had to wait for unknown time either outside in the rain or at the overcrowded bar. According to Young curly brownish colored hostess said the manager doesn’t allow them to close reservations when they have reached their maximum capacity. Spoke to manger explained I had seniors with our party and choices to wait either place wasn’t an option. Mngr set us at our reservation time which was appreciated. Gauchos we’re slow to respond when they said they would return but in all fairness the restaurant was overcrowded. Table service slow number of people come to table to check on you but no one return with your request. We were a party of 4 and we had to constantly ask for more potatoes. Experience was palpable but for price the restaurant should have been more organized.

It had been a great place to eat out.

However, the experience this time was not the best as the floor stuff were not educated about their food, lacking the knowledge. There were not enough signs for the food on their buffet to describe what they were such as a creamy looking stuff, dressing and soup etc.
A floor stuff was transferring the buffet cut vegetables to a new buffet plate with his bare hand was unappetizing. (Is it normal??)

Their selection for the buffet seemed to be a lot lighter than ever and same thing to their signature of meat.

Very disappointed unfortunately.

We might give it a shot one more time one day, but not anytime soon.
We hope they will go back to what they were.

Our first experience a month ago at Fogo left a bit to be desired, but Alex the GM reached out and convinced us to give it a second try. And I have to say, I'm very glad we did. Both times the food was excellent, I mean how can you not enjoy fresh cuts of meat carved off right at your table, but the service this time was stellar as well. We never felt like we were looking around to be helped, the staff were on top of their game, even in a fully packed restaurant on a Saturday night.

We were seated right near the kitchen entrance, so the noise level was quite loud (to be expected), but we had the benefit of getting first pass at the cuts as they left the kitchen, straight from grill to our table, so it was well worth it.

We will certainly be back, and are very happy we were convinced to give it a second try.

Well done Fogo!

Our experience wasn’t good. We made the mistake of making reservations 45 minutes before closing time. There was one server who was hustling and kept coming around, but everyone else was taking it easy. Because it was so near to closing time there were no new meats coming off, and everything we were served was over cooked. Lots of meat was unavailable. They started cleaning up and stacking tables and chairs while we were still waiting for more food. We finally took the hint and realized that things weren’t going to get better and left.

Memorial Day Holiday-my bf is an active duty for the army, so we couldn’t resist the promo at Fogo. It was way busier than usual-the most busiest we had seen during Covid. But the lead host, his name is Robert? We instantly recognized the Naruto cap my bf was wearing (which I got for my bf’s bday) and got along really well and he started us on our drinks while our server was elsewhere. Cool dude!

Honestly not worth the money, take your business to ringside instead .This place used to be such a great experience but not anymore. We were sat by a window to watch the homeless and drug users walk by and right next to a server station. Employees and service was unprofessional. Drinks were so sugary and gross. The buffet area definitely isn’t what it used to be I’m assuming due to covid but for the price it was over picked and looked un-appetizing. Would not recommend this place.

Waiter was inexperienced and ignored us 80% of the time. We had to ask for things several times. At one point we asked for desert menu and waiter came around with it for the table next to us, but ignored my table. They almost lost or shopping bag and staff shrugged their shoulders at an attempt to avoid responsibility. Never going back!!!! Don’t recommend.

Food was great as always, but they did not serve Brazilian side dishes with the full experience this time (we used to get stuff before and after the meal like mashed potatoes, caramelized bananas, crispy polenta, etc. but somehow none of that served this time). If you get no side dishes, we highly recommend the Chocolate Brigadeiro as a dessert (a delicious beast that should be shared by two people).

This is a fixed price menu with add-ons for water, wine, desert, etc. Two main courses: The first is a salad bar with some enhancements but many to most items what one would expect from a "family" restaurant. The second course features different selections of meats brought to your table and carved for you there. It's really a quite nice and unusual idea. A few problems here, as well, though. They did not provide fresh service, so we ate off our salad plates. Many of the meat items were well done, but they were more than willing to help us get the medium-rare we wanted. Unfortunately, they brought the side dishes (mashed potatoes, polenta, and fried bananas-not plantains) while we were still eating our salad bar course, so those were cold by the time the meat came around. The service was really good, though.

We’ve been to Fogo de Chao many times but this experience was awful. We were seated 45 min late and though we asked for menus and prices several times, the waiter would only recite options verbally and said he couldn’t recall the prices. We had to remind a waitress three times that we had ordered drinks, and they took a very long time to come. A gal in our party ordered salmon, and we also had to remind the waitress several times that we’d ordered it. By the time it came, everybody else was finished eating and she felt pressured to eat it in a rush. Overall, it was a terrible experience that cost a fortune.
