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.

Our reservation was at 4:00 pm. The food was tasty but the variety of meat at that time was much less than what they said it would be. We had to ask numerous times for pork and finally received pork ribs just before leaving.

Brought my family to San Antonio on a business trip. Decided to do something different for dinner. This was great food with great service. The meats were all tender and flavorful. The wait staff attentive without being annoying. The price is pretty high but for what you get was quite reasonable. Would recommend to anyone looking for good food and something a bit different than your normal fare restaurant.

Every cut of meat was tough and lacked any seasoning. The house special was one of the toughest pieces of beef I have had in some time. If I had to guess I would say they were using select beef and trying to pass it for prime. The chicken was overcooked and dry. Overall the service was good, but the food was lacking. For a Brazilian steakhouse I will stick to Tejas De Brazil.

Food is great and plenty, literally depending on your appetite, or should I say capacity to indulge. Tonight though, the service slacked a bit: we asked one server for the bread, we had to ask two others before it finally got to us. The same with the coffee and the lamb chops and the beef ribs that never came.

I am clearly in the minority here because the place was PACKED and there were people begging for tables. We were seated in a nice room with only a few tables, so it was quieter than the main dining room. The server was helpful regarding ordering and we opted to go big and do the entire choice of meats. This is where it started falling flat. First off, the meat servers come by and ask how you like your meat cooked and based on what you tell them they slice from different areas. I asked for medium rare across the board and only received one slice that was actually medium rare. Everything else leaned towards medium well which is just no way to serve meat (IMHO). The meat was also bland, it really needed a sauce or something which no one mentioned, but when I asked, was told they have four which we requested. 10 minutes go by, I ask again, 15 minutes, finally we get the sauces. None of them were exceptional and none really helped the flavorless meat. I am bored of continuing to try these flavorless meats after trying around 8, so I ask for a to go container which they do not offer!! Uhm, you charged me $52 for all I can eat, I barely ate anything and now I have to leave all this behind?? I was not planning on eating it, but my dogs or chickens would have loved it. Now I am not at all happy with the price and feel like a jerk for barely eating any of these poor animals which are now going into the TRASH. For the amount of meat being continually sliced off the skewers it starts really sinking in that these are not well-kept, organic animals you are eating, they are (most-likely) crammed into cages and dying horrific deaths only to be thrown in the trash. So, obviously, I did not enjoy this experience at all, I would never return and I would never recommend. And yes, I will continue to eat meat, but I will choose a cut I know I like and have it prepared the way I like and hope it has wonderful flavor for $52.
