Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse - Portland Ratings and Reviews
Good food, lots of good food! Buffet style except for the meat. Salad bar/ side dishes were very good in addition to the meats carved at your table. Somewhat Expensive unless you’re a big eater. Reasonably priced wine options as well as expensive wine options. We will go back! I guess that’s the ultimate review!
The restaurant was very busy, typical for a Saturday night. However, service was somewhat slow throughout the evening. I had to ask several times for refills on beverages and table condiments. In the past, servers would automatically refill beverages or table condiments without asking. Meat service came around but rotation of meats were limited. It was a birthday celebration, and server did comp one of the ordered desserts.
We always enjoy Fogo - the guys go for the full meat option and I really like the Market Table selections. Tonight there were 8 of us & I was disappointed in the wines the sommelier recommended. And our server seemed undertrained. A big slip in service since the last time we were in. But, we still love the food!
We went late and weren’t offered as much meat at we expected. You should go early if you want to eat well otherwise it seems like they are willing to close and don’t have variety of meet to offer. I was laughing because I keept my card in green and they never came
I’m very disappointed, we were seated in an out of the way location where the guys who bring around the meets were ignoring. We had to ask three different wait staff to get them to bring us any meat. We would watch them go around and just ignore the area. I’ve been here twice before and been happy. At this point I won’t go back as the amount of money spent to just get ignored means they will now be ignored by me.
My husband, cousin and son made reservations here for dinner. They wanted to try it because of the great reviews from other friends and family. They all absolutely loved it. The price we paid was worth the food -quality, quantity, everything. The only unfortunate thing for me is that I'm not a huge meat eater and you would love the experience if you were. But thats on me, everything I tasted was fine, just not a huge fan of that much meat. The service, atmosphere and location was excellent.
Very well prepared food. Professional wait-staff, and excellent service. A little on the pricey side, but worth it for a special occasion. Definitely a place for meat lovers. Would be a very expensive salad bar if you did not come for the steak or the bacon-wrapped sausage.
We made a reservation for 930 not knowing you closed at 10pm, as soon as we sat down we were reminded that they will be visit and felt very rushed the entire time.
If you plan on closing at 10 please don't allow 930 reservations. This is a place of time and unfortunately we didn't have any. I would recommend taking 930 reservations off line. On a good note our server was really great .
Please also have a slippery when wet sign by entrance, I slipped and being 4 months pregnant that could have been bad if my husband didn't have my arm.
Went for Christmas dinner. Three of the four of us were veggie, not a problem per se we knew what the deal was. But couldn't even get side dishes very much. I being the only meat eater rarely saw the cowboys with the meat sticks. Finally got to try the chorizo, it was good. The salad station was fairly theadbare as well. Kinda disappointing for a two hundred dollar bill.
I only have two comments/suggestion to make.
My parents and I were sitting at a table next to the parking garage entrance and the cold winds would come through every time someone came in the door. I know it's not preventable but I think a heater pointing down inside/outside the door would prevent or redirect the chill in the colder months.
Because of the location of the table we were only greeted by one gaucho during the first 30 minutes of our dinner. My observation was that the gauchos were going directly towards the larger tables in front of us and then dispersed towards the rest of the restaurant. I had to mention to our table server that we've paid the same amount for dinner and would like similar options specifically stating the cuts of meat we'd like to enjoy.
I will say that our table service was wonderful after that and we did have a better variety from the gauchos after something was said. My thought is that I or anyone else should not have to ask for this service. Maybe a better plan of covering all patrons would be better.
There are good items at the "salad bar", but only use them to accentuate the meat. Not worth bringing vegetarians here, and vegans should not pay this much for salad bar. When the gauchos come around with meat skewers, they come in a herd, so eat slower and expect lulls. Each gaucho has a different way of working his skewers, so be ready with the little meat tongs in case they want you to assist in getting the meat to your plate, but don't act until they direct you to do so. When the gauchos ask how you like your meat just politely say "i would like two slices of this piece, please", etc, and point. Everyone has a slightly different idea of the line between rare and medium, etc., so pointing saves awkwardness and prevents getting some cut you didn't want.
Chicken was the surprise hit, both the bacon-wrapped and the drumsticks. We got a flank-like cut of steak towards the end of the meal and it wasn't as good as the other cuts, so we were disappointed when the ribeye went past and we were too full. Before you go, look at the meat menu and think about what you really want. Say yes to those skewers first befire accepting something you don't want. We'll probably come for brunch again (cheaper than dinner and they make ribeye hash), but, like The Melting Pot, this is a nicer interactive-dinner chain with a classier feel and it's too expensive for the food value to justify eating there more than once a year... I can get 2lbs prime wagyu steak for the cost of one person's meal at Fogo (not including an alcoholic beverage) and grill that to perfection at home. Fogo is just for the experience, and it can be fun. Staff were very nice.
Food was good. Tables and chair spacing were a little too close. Chair was constantly getting bumped as people were passing in between tables. Server could’ve checked in a little more. We found ourselves looking to other servers for drink refills and table food refills after waiting quite some time for our server. All in all, it was okay. The best thing about our night was the food and company.
Great service. If you are on "go" they will bring the meat and keep it coming. Their salad bar is the best in the city. Great value too. Meat is good... but don't expect true steak house flavor or tenderness. Only advice is if anyone gets only the market table salad bar, chances are very high you'll get charged the full price so you have to review your itemized closely.
Our reservation was for 5:30 on a Monday night and it took 2.5 hours to have dinner. I think their biggest mistake is that because it’s a buffet and meat comes to your table once in awhile, the servers only check on you a few times. Our water was filled once. It took an hour for each cocktail. We were told we could request specific types of meat which didn’t really work even though we told the waiter. For $400 for 4 people, I expect even mediocre service. Not going back.
