Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse - San Antonio Ratings and Reviews
We ordered drinks. I order a red wine and my and date ordered a mixed drink. It took at least half an hour for his drink to arrive. Meal was almost over when the drink arrived. I have been to a few Brazilian steak houses here Vegas. Fogo de Chao for one, hostess doesn’t tell you “your first course will be salad then meat”. Or maybe I just took it the wrong way the she said it. Either way, I found it a little offensive. Normally, they just tell you, if you’re interested some salad in the salad bar or whatever you need. Or you’re ready for your meat just standby or turn your card to green then they come and serve you some meat.
First time in all of trouxe years that there is NO BLACK BEANS (feijoada) !!! and nobody knows why !!! Also, salad bar with less options than usual. No onions.... no vinagrete..... Very disappointed. These use to be one of the best units in US....
why do I have to pay more than lunch to have less ????
I love the food and service at this location. Fernando leads his team providing exceptional service. The food is excellent and I am particularly fond of of the lamb chops, the beef ribs and the market table. The desserts are phenomenal and I really enjoy the flan and tres leches cake. I do wish they had the same paper towels in the restrooms as other locations because I dislike the Dyson air dryers. The restaurant is clean and well kept, the service, impeccable, and the food, delicious! Highly recommend!
As always, this place conitnues to be just like the first time I dined here. This visit was special because it was a first date that left an impression on my date. I want to thank Ms. Abbey in making sure the flowers I ordered for my date were set up at the table I had reserved. Thank you and see you soon!
We had a terrible experience at this location and I would not recommend it to anyone. First, we came in with a reservation and waited about half hour to be seated. I’m not sure what the point of having a reservation system is if you are still going to seat guests with reservations in the same way you seat other guests. Next, The salad bar was gross. I felt like I was eating at Golden Corral. There was food spilled everywhere, the presentation was terrible and the selection was the worst I’ve seen at any of the 8 Fogo locations I’ve been to. We came for my birthday, and in San Antonio, with so many great food options, I fell as though I spent way to much on a less than stellar meal when I could have gotten better food at so may other locations for a fraction of the price. When you pay over $30 for a salad bar, it better be the best salad around. The value isn’t here and I won’t be back. I would not recommend this location to anyone. Do yourself a favor, go to Texas de Brazil or Bohanans if you want a good quality dining experience. This Fogo missed the boat.
Food was excellent except turkey was dry. Lead hostess a bit rough around the edges, and took a bit to get our check but they were serving a huge crowd- stayed packed.
We were overall pretty pleased with the ambience, food and service.
The experience made for a memorable Thanksgiving dinner with family.
I had some trouble making the reservation, I couldn’t make it for 4, so when we got there it was for 2. We waited for about a half hour for our table. The place was crowded, so service was slow and the waiters and servers were all in a rush and you could feel it.
But food was as delicious as always.
It was noise but didn't bother me really. We were sat right behind the fire display which was nice. Waitstafff was rude by rushing through her introduction of herself, kept interrupting our conversation and then it started to bother me because I was on a 1st date in over 5 years. The knives were so dull I had EXTREMEMLY hard time cutting food so I left hungry,went home and cooked. My 1st time there and don't really wanna return and waste money again. We stilled tipped her well though.
Compared to similar Brazilian steakhouses in town, the food here was not impressive. The customer service was not great either. We already had food coming to our table before our drinks or side items arrived. Even trying to pay was a lengthy process because we couldn't get anyone's attention. I will most likely stick with the competition.
We took our daughter for her first time and was sadly disappointed! We had to wait a very long time to get any of the meats, we never got the potatoes or bananas even though I requested them a couple times until we were done eating our meal. I never received my wine I initially ordered and last we were charged double for a child's meal after being told one price.
I personally would rather recommend the Houston location hands down
First time visiting San Antonio. My husband and I were in the mood for steaks and found this restaurant. From the outside, it looked authentic and inviting. The area where they say us was perfect. We can actually have a conversation without raising our voice. Their meats were freshly cooked, tasty. Their buffet area was very good. Full array of salads and tapas. It is expensive but worth it. For a couple, we paid $190.00 with tip. In summary, yes, I will come back to this restaurant.
My new bride and I chose Fogo De Chao for our first meal as husband and wife. We were very happy we did. The fresh market bar, and cuts of freshly grilled meats were amazing. The side of garlic mashed potatoes were very good as well. As a bonus the staff hearing that it was our wedding day presented us with a delicious strawberry cheesecake. We will definitely be returning.
It still amazes me that for a $50 meal that you never get just one wait staff. They tag team your service and frequently have no clue when you need service. This goes for most fogos. I just don't get the philosophy. Makes sense for a $20 meal but $50? I'm going to a real steakhouse next time.
My experience was very poor. This location no longer has valet parking so you have to park in the malls parking lot and walk down to the restaurant. This is in downtown so its inconvenient to not have valet parking. The restaurant was empty and staff was not friendly. I visited for my Mothers birthday and I did not enjoy it. Some meat cuts were bland as if they didn't use salt. Comparing other similar restaurants like Chama Gaucha they have exceeded my expectations for a churrascaria place. I will definitely not come back to Fogo.
I’ve been to several brazilian steakhouses and this one has been the worst I’ve been to. I expected the cost of the meal and the location of the restaurant to reflect in the experience, but unfortunately it didn’t. We were celebrating our anniversary/birthday (same weekend) and they sat us down in the most non romantic table with the busiest foot traffic area. People, including the staff themselves, bumped into our chairs every couple of minutes. 2 out of the 3 waitresses had terrible customer service. I even heard them bad mouthing a table across the floor. I believe someone realized we weren’t having a good time because the manager came in and asked us if we needed anything and sent her star waitress in to save the night and offered us desert on the house.
My husband really enjoyed the restaurant. I'm on the fence about this entire experience. I indicated that the mashed potatoes were a bit bland and very hard and asked that they bring us a new plate and was told they were all the same. The fried plantains were very mushy. We only really enjoyed 2 of all the meat options they provided. Seasoning was an issue with some of the meats. There were also issues with the temperature, some were more on the medium well instead of medium as we requested. The website indicates there is more than the Full Churrasco Experience dinner option but no other options were given to us. Seems like they really just push for the full experience.
I will not be returning to this restaurant. I think I prefer to go to a nice steak restaurant, order an entrée and enjoy my dinner without having so many different options being rushed to my table.
I must say that the dessert was spot on. I enjoyed that the most.
