My husband and I are first responders that have been dealing with the Covid crisis for one entire year nonstop. We decided to plan a getaway to San Antonio and enjoy our Labor Day weekend., as we desperately needed a break from a horrific year. We have been frequent guests at Fogo for the last 20 years, but this last visit sealed the deal and we will no longer patronize them. They allowed a lot of panhandlers in their bar area which they were well aware of and yet did nothing to dissuade them to leave the restaurant. Once inside everyone had to be allowed a wait time to enter the salad bar to which we were not allowed to touch anything and the disinfectant spray that they bathe our hands with prior to them handing us our salad plate, was all over the salad. No longer have the multiple choices of cheeses, they did not have croutons, they did not have ranch dressing, They did not have the majority of the normal fixings that they had previously offered at the salad bar. once at our table we had to wait 8 to 20 minutes just for bread, and croutons for our salad. At that point you’re frustrated and unable to relax. We were sat next to a table that had three Very rowdy children. They were dressed in swimsuits and flip-flops as their parents were too. Extremely disappointing. This is the second time we received less than satisfied service. For what this restaurant charges we will no longer be going back. It was frustrating that they use the pandemic as an excuse to limit seating, or services, or products yet they charge full price for everything

Fogo is fine, but the meat quality and overall value are not up the same level as their competitors located in San Antonio Texas. Brasao and Chama Gaucha are both superior in food quality and level of service, as is Texas de Brazil.

Always great food but one of our favorite meats.didnt make its rounds
It's all table service including the salad bar for sanitary reasons so salad/fruit portions were small. Got lots of bread refills though. Staff was very attentive and even offered to make fries for my picky special needs son.

Steak was awesome as usual. Perfect salt balance and flavor. Sadly tho, the market table /salad options were a joke due to how this restaurant chose to respond to covid guidelines. Once the salad person finally came by, they would offer maybe 3-4 pieces of lettuce on whatever salad you chose, enough for maybe 2 forkfuls. They had the steak process down perfectly as usual tho.

Horrible service by far
Staff seemed more worried about getting more tables than taking care of tables which I get I work on the river walk but damn all we needed were basics you know refills plates cleared and someone to acknowledge us the only thing they kept up with was bread but not once was it served warm we got cold bread rolls
I was trying to celebrate my birthday and have a wonderful time all I got was annoyed with service and watching what looked like managers texting on their phones
Worst experience by far we didn’t even stay for dessert which is complementary on your birthday I opted out and went somewhere else

They are receiving large parties which I think they should avoid for health purposes. They had a table of 10 people very close to where I was sitting, which worried me and made me uncomfortable.
It took 3 times for me to orders my drink so they waitress actually brought it to me. For their fees and overall prices, they should have better service.

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful evening at Fogo de Chão. All of the servers went above and beyond taking care of each guest. Holden and Joshua had the restaurant running perfectly. Everything was very well organized in accordance with CDC guidelines, and it was still a very relaxing and wonderful setting. We had an experience we’ll remember for a very long time and we intend to come back as soon as we are able to.

The food was not like it always is. It was still very good. But not as good as it has been in the past. We went right when they open so I guess I could say that they just weren’t ready yet.. But like I said it was still very good and definitely not affect me not wanting to go back in the future. Literally the best restaurant, the best staff and the best experience possible!!!!!

They was no order it seemed like everyone wats just winging it and there for the money. It was our first time here and instead of telling us how everything worked and especially during this time, the server just kept asking if we wanted to add food to our experience and never gave prices. So we knew it was going to be expensive. We did decide to add the seafood tower to whatever experience we were going to get, and it took them 20 minutes to bring it out. The tower is all served cold, which we weren’t told and it had no seasoning at all on it. When we complained they offered to sauté it to go. Why charge $100 for flavorless, and fishy smelling food. Then due to COVID they bring the salad bar to you, but they kept bringing the same chicken salad, Caesar salad, candied bacon, and something else that I can’t remember. Like that was the only thing on the salad bar, and when I asked for some fruit the lady gave an irritated sigh because I wanted more than the strawberries she offered. The meat was mediocre and the service was atrocious. I’ve never wasted $250/$300 with tip at what was suppose to be a fine dining establishment. The only thing we had there that was good was the candied bacon. If they’re going to charge these prices they can certainly make sure it’s worth it. The only thing that came in under 15 minutes was the check. Also, if you’re charging $100 you can at least clean the shrimp! 🤮

We had my birthday lunch here during covid. Everything was safely handled - made people wear masks when not eating at their tables, no one getting in the lines for salad/fruits, servers would bring salads to the table and were also all masked.
There was one server in particular who really dropped the ball. We asked for a dessert menu-never brought it. We put in two orders of coffee-waited about 10 minutes and never brought it. We had to ask another server to check on it. Although it was around noon, it was not busy at all so we didn’t understand the long wait for something like coffee.

I thought customers could’ve also been more spread out during this time. They sat a group right next to us while there were many tables open a bit further away.

Overall, food was good and we had a good time.

It was a last minute reservation, just before the Covid peak. Waiters were already very careful about their service, masks were worn consistently, tables were amply separated. Food was excellently prepared, I have not eaten so much meat in my life and they showed how it should be cooked. Quite expensive so trying to impress your date would be a reason to go.

The buffet was closed and they delivered it table side. The salad was soggy and even asking for new ones they came the same way. The selection of items brought to the table was very slim and we had a large group. Several meats came cold to our table. For amount of this service even with the restrictions of Covid I would expect good food and service. We went for my sons graduation celebration and no one left satisfied.

Great experience for our first time. A different way to dine for sure, they slice delicious meat and served grilled cheese right from the skewer. Definatly a learning curve for these first timers. To flip your card or not...that is the question.

We were so caught up in the excitement of it all embarrassingly I forgot to mention at the beginning that we wanted to partake in the deal "4 course for $40". The management team was very understanding and adjusted the bill even though I was prepared to pay full price since it was my fault. We will definitely be back. Thank you for the amazingly fun dining experience.
