Upon arrival the lobby was so packed that is reminded me of an old rock concert. Added to that, our reservation was as 545 but they did not seat us until 620. Also beware; everything they carry around the dining room is not included in the meal cost. Waiters offered shrimp cocktails and these little drinks with a strawberry without ever saying it was extra. Upon receipt of the dinner bill, we were billed an additional ~$100 for these items after the fact.

Crowded. Many items on Salad Bar required replenishment. Carvers were slow to approach table; multiple request required to have select meats brought to table. Seafood options results in small one-time portion .

Dined early, restaurant was packed. With full salad bar/buffet areas, little attention paid to Covid safety, let alone Safe Serve. Overcrowded, felt like 110% capacity. Went for Anniversary, but this felt like a Chucky Cheese. Food was cold-warm. Went for Filet primarily and seemed like a challenge to have that brought over to us and served and when asked again, took another 20 minutes. Overall disappointing for price paid, would suggest avoiding the weekend and not being placed around families with many loud small kids.

Super packed, super loud. Not a place to go for a quiet dinner for 2. The meats are unbelievable. If you take any of the extras that waiters are walking around with, be ready to pay an arm and a leg for them (also they don’t tell you which is included and which is not).
The taste of the food diminishes most of the bad.

If I could give this place 0 stars - I would and I used to love Fogo de chao! Yesterday dinner was BAD. Restaurant is overcrowded, our reservation was for 6:45 and we were given a table only by 7:35! Restaurant looks and feels not clean, floor is covered in trash. There are NO MEAT, literally our waitress that was very nice came several time to apologize and saying that she will send gauchos with skewers to our table but they never came. They advertised on the radio about multitude of different meets variety - it’s not true! We were served dried chicken breast top sirloin Picanha and chicken wrapped in bacon. That’s it !! My husband asked for a lamb or ribs - they literally never came to our table! No Ribeye no filet Mignon, nothing ! And the bill for 10 people was almost $900 plus tip !!! I find it absurd and highly overpriced!

Ive always loved Fogo de Chao!! The food has always been great! Just a couple things though. Our reservations were very early so it was not that busy but when we got to the front there was no host to sit us down, had to wave down the bartender to take us to our table. I also feel like how the meat comes out was pretty slow. We’ve been here before and sometimes it is overwhelming on how the meat just keeps coming like my plate will be full of meat but this time we had to wait for a long time. Our server was super nice though, she might be the only great thing on this visit. Also I asked for a well done rib eye to give to our daughter and never got one, just never asked again since that might take another 20 mins. We made the best of it since we went to celebrate a birthday but might rethink coming back next time either check out the Chicago location or a completely different one next time . We were not really asked until an hour into our dining experience on what other meats we would like when we were close to leaving; we did feel rushed because maybe the lunch time is almost over but we still should get equal amount of service as the other people that were there. We got our lamb chops which we took everything from the guy since we might not see it for another couple minutes. Just a little disappointed but didn’t let it ruin our day. It just feels like we didn’t get our money’s worth.

The meats and market table foods were not good and very underwhelming. The meats were either very rare or overcooked. We barely got anybody to come to our table to serve us the good steaks (like filet & picanha). It seems like they were just trying to give us all the sausage and the overcooked & very dry bacon-wrapped chicken. It was horrible food and completely different from Texas de Brazil.

I also wanted to order a couple bottles of wine but never got the chance to do so, because our starter cocktails took forever to get from the bar.

To make it worst, we were there to celebrate a couple of birthdays and your restaurant was supposed to help us make it an extra special experience. But it was the complete opposite. We regretted going there and wasting a lot of money on your restaurant.

If you want to discuss this further, please let me know.

Thanks!
