Maybe was just my luck but our table was not that clean when they gave it, incomplete cutlery and our drinks took more than 25 min to arrive. So, service in general for that day sucked. The rest was fine

Would not come here again. I am not sure if it is due to lack of staffing or untrained staff, but the service was horrible. The first half of our meal we were only offered the same 3 meats (wrapped in beacon variety). We asked for beef options and they didn't come to our table until we were mostly full. It took them a good 20 minutes to bring out out desserts and we had to ask 2 different waiters, twice, for our check. Another 25 minute wait. The location is beautiful but the staff made our first experience at Fogo de Chao our last one.

Didn’t have a good experience at all. Me and my wife dine at all the Brazilian restaurants in town and this was our first time dining here. Was not impressed.

Was like being stuck on a Sales floor. I was constantly worried about who I mad eye contact with in fear of them coming over trying to sell me something. If I wanted expensive shots, I would ask for one, not have to say no three times.

Our waiter basically forgot about us for the whole time except to tell us the wine we wanted wasn’t available, and then brought me the wrong beer.

Whole evening was ruined and for the price we paid, I was not happy.

Water never got refilled. Didn’t bring my mashed potatoes until reminded that she offered them. They were all out of plantain. Waitress was polite though. They were busy so I give her the benefit of the doubt. I’d come back because the few other times I was there it was spot on.

The food was amazing like always but the service was lacking a bit this time. Since it was a busy day I felt like my table was almost forgotten about, but it’s understandable since everyone seemed in a rush since there was so many people. Although we did get what we wanted when we asked the waiter.

Had reservations and was sat at table back in corner and out of the main flow of traffic. Seems like a good place but not so. Servers seldom made it back there. Had to continually ask for service. Only saw about 2/3 of the meat selections after 2 hours.
Also, on wine list be sure they bring out what you order. In my case they substituted a different vintage that should be cheaper yet were charging the same price. Not cool in my opinion. If you’re out post the new year and price on your wine selection.
Overall waiter was very good and tried his best. Not one of my best experiences for sure.

It was a busy night with lots of big tables. We were sat at a table right behind a column in between two big tables. I don’t think a waiter was assigned to that table because one of the waiters came by and asked if someone had attended us already. He took our drink order brought them out and rarely saw him again since he was attending three big tables. We had to ask for our sides since they were never brought out. A manager walked by and noticed we weren’t being attended so she sent the gauchos our way. At the end of our meal we ordered desert and coffee. Our dessert came out but we were never brought my coffee. No one ever came by to ask if we needed anything or if we were doing ok. I did have them take off the coffee charge. Overall I’d say it was an ok experience but we will probably not be going back anytime soon.

we really missed the old days of fogo do chao.. looks service has dropped dramatically, everybody asks what you want and what you need but no one provides...
long time waiting for drinks, couple of drinks never were served but were in the bill, etc...
Meat is reasonable.
people are more interested in selling all that is not included: appetizers, coktails, etc..

It was our first time and the server barely explained the process. She was more interested in up selling us appetizers. She never returned to the table unless flagged down. The meat took ten minutes to come to the table and the next one took ten more minutes. We had to ask for meat servers to come to our table. I was seated next to the window which had window blinds. Both the blinds and the window frame were covered in dust. The waitress finally cleared off our table but we had to flag her down again to get the check. Very disappointed in the whole experience, especially for the price.

Do not waste your time or money here. You barely get 1 slice of the best cuts of meat. You have to ask 3 times with 3 different people to get extra sides. The bread is disgusting & the salad bar is no better than Jason’s Deli. Servers aren’t very friendly. I do not recommend this place.

Father’s Day Brunch. We are African Americans. The receptionist tried to seat us in the back room when there were plenty of tables in the main room. We insisted on a table in the main room and were able to get it. It seemed though that the African American families who came in after us were all seated in the back room as we sat there. We did not like the perception this gave as we sat there. We probably won’t go back to this location.
