We had reservations for 6:30 and we didn’t get seated until at least 7:15. We had 2 infants with us and we were seated at a high traffic area right next to the salad bar. When we got to the table we had to stand around and wait while them to set it. Not ideal at all. The fact that we had to wait so long past reservation wouldn’t of been an issue if it would of been communicated at the time of check in. Wait time for drinks and the meat to come around was a little long. The food was great but overall experience and what was paid for that was disappointing.

We had to ask for things at least three times. Servers were very slow to respond. We saw other tables get helped before ours was. We were very disappointed in our visit. We shouldn’t have to ask more than once to get drinks, chimichurri sauce, straws.

We dined here to celebrate our 19th anniversary as I had been planning on sampling this restaurant since the last Brazilian restaurant we went to. While not perfect, (some selections were slightly overcooked) the flavor was excellent! The filet mignon was excellent and the top sirloin flavor was superb! We chose the New York style cheesecake for dessert and had them split the topping 1/2 raspberry and 1/2 caramel. The caramel was quite good, but the raspberry topping was phenomenally good! Overall excellent dining experience!

Initial server forgot our drinks and wine and it was still on the bill after we asked 20 minutes later. The manager did recommend an amazing wine so I guess that’s better that he forgot. Never saw that server again but the asst waiters that kept checking were amazing.

Food was overly salty today. I used to eat here at lease once every 3-4 months and first time since Covid so not sure if they just have been staff or what.

Very crowded. There were so many people dining that we had trouble navigating from our table to the salad bar. No COVID precautions at all except some wait staff wore masks. Food was bland- no seasoning, tasted like fuel. We let the floor manager know that they weren’t seasoning the meats and we have been there several times. Definitely not our best experience. She kindly brought us a key lime pie desert, which was very nice of her. The wait staff was working very hard to keep diners happy and keep up with the many tables of diners.

Lunch was good. Most of the meats were perfect, few over done. Buffet was excellent. Birthday girl enjoyed it. They were playing some very odd music, pieces where it sounded like a horror movie playing. Not too loud but in a sparsely populated restaurant it was jarringly odd.

Food was good. Service was horrible. We reserved and got there a little early. We were sat down, given water, went to the salad bar and a server didn’t come back to our table until 25 mins later. Then they didn’t take our drink order until another 15 mins later and that was only because I asked who our waiter/waitress was and told them no one has taken our drink order. The waiter/waitress was attending all other tables and people who got there after us were getting drink orders and clean plates. Even the servers would go to al the other tables and ours was skipped several times even though we had the card with the green side up. Texas de Brazil is way better than here.

We tried out Fogo de Chao for the first time last night. After waiting for at least 10 minutes to be acknowledged after my husband joined me and waiting almost 20 minutes to get drinks we should have taken that as a warning sign. My husband and I are understanding that many restaurants are struggling post COVID, especially with help. Finally one server went to check on our drinks and I believe a manager came by and apologized for the delay due to a large table ordering drinks. Understood but that should have been communicated much sooner that it was. We were served mashed potatoes while we were having salad so by the time we were ready to eat the potatoes they were already cold. We were brought another "fresh" one but it was still cold. The meat was disappointing. Medium rare meats like ribeyes should not be difficult to cut. We did like the top sirloin and the pork ribs. My husband specifically asked for lamb and said it didn't even taste like lamb and was also tough. The amount of money we spent could have gotten us a significantly better meal anywhere else. Maybe it they were having an off night and it isn't usually like this. However, it is extremely unlikely we will ever return to find out.

I have been a fan of FOGO for many years.... This was the first time back to one since the pandemic. The experience was awful. From the service to the food not the same any more. Save your money and go to any of the other Brazil type steak house. They now have an upcharge menu... spend more money and you can get better meats... Service was horrible as well. It will be a long time before I even think about going to a FOGO again.
