Servers were amazing. Would recommend anyone who goes. The price is well worth what you get 140 plus tip. Ask for James and grace they are actually from San Antonio so after you eat they could tell you where is a good tourist location

A bit disappointed. For a Brazilian steakhouse the food and service was mediocre. I ordered the shrimp and lobster appetizer. It was supposed to be sautéed. It came out sautéed and cold. The salad bar is acceptable. The meats were a bit too salty. The managers did come by frequently to ask if we needed anything. Even when we requested service the service was very delayed. We began to joke about it. Also the same 3 meats kept coming by. Bacon wrapped chicken, sirloin and lamb loin were roaming around us. Basically this location is a Brazilian tourist trap. That’s the ambiance. The other Brazilian steakhouses in San Antonio are better. I cannot recommend.

The food and drinks were delicious, however, the servers passed our table several times, although our table cards were GREEN. We often had to ask a wait staff member to get the attention of one of the servers so we could be served

Me and my fiance enjoy having a nice Friday night date night every once in a whole; Fogo made this one to remember. Great service, amazing food, and don't get us started on the bacon. Can't complain just had a couple kids crying that threw off the date night at the start but in the end did not effect it overall.

The food is always OUTSTANDING at Fogo de Chao regardless of the location. I've had the pleasure of eating at several around the world including in Sao Paulo. If you love meat, this is the place for you. If you do not like meat, the salad bar and availability of non-meat options are there for you. I highly recommend eating here and this particular location is well-placed right next to the Marriott Rivercenter and Riverwalk. The servers were all great with enthusiastic demeanor which enhanced the dining experience.

We frequently eat at Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse - San Antonio and have an excellent experience. Today, they seemed a little under staffed and service was not at the level it usually is, but that may have been because it was 3:30 p.m. on Sunday afternoon. It appeared a number of people we going on break. Ashley makes the BEST Caipirinha. You should ask for her specifically!

This place used to be my go-to for special occasions and client dinners.
Major let down. They sat us in the very corner of the restaurant. We had to keep begging servers to send the meat servers around. We waited an hour and 15 min for a ribeye to come around. Every temp was wrong. Medium rare was brown all the way through, pichana wasn’t seasoned at all. It was also annoying that they charged dinner prices all day on Father’s Day.
I won’t be going back. Ever.

This place was not what I expected it to be. It didn’t feel as ‘fancy’ as other brazilian steakhouses I’ve been to. The service was poor and staff anything but attentive. If we didn’t ask for refills we didn't get any, and we had to hunt down a staff member just to get fresh plates or dirty plates removed from the table. The meat was overcooked and extremely salty. The salad bar was sad and missing a lot of key things. I also wish they had coat racks to hang belongings. The dessert was delicious and came out fairly quickly. The bathrooms were nice. The waitress we had in the beginning was rather dull. My mom asked for a specific wine and instead of acknowledging her request, she just turned away, leaving my mom to later find out from another waiter they didn’t have that wine, all while she was waiting for it to arrive to the table. So far both this place and Texas de Brazil are trash, I definitely recommend Chama Gaucha 100% or even Brasão! Don’t come here unless you want bad service and highly mediocre food. It is not worth the price since half of the meat selection is too salty/overcooked!

We eat at Fogo de Chao frequently and one of my favorite drinks is the Caipirinha. Kat make the best Caipirinhas and she makes them "old school" with just the Cachaça, limes, and sugar. She does not, like some cocktail artist (bar tenders), add Sprite to the drink. What I get is a pure, delicious, Brazilian national cocktail. Keep it up Kat and DON'T CHANGE THE RECIPE! Twice in two week? Yes, excellent for us! And the lamb chops are THE BEST!

We frequent Fogo often, usually in Austin, but sometimes in San Antonio. THIS was the best experience we have had at a Fogo de Chao. Amber was managing the dining room, the Gauchos were friendly, energetic, and remembered our preferred cuts and temperatures. The waiters were friendly, helpful, courteous and frequently making sure we had anything we needed. We will be returning to San Antonio's Fogo de Chao much more often.
