I wrote in the notes for the reservation that it was my birthday- no one wished me a happy birthday. When we got there, my mom had apparently spoken off to the side with the hostess to ask for a birthday dessert for me- they never did anything. We got sat way in the back, and they kept serving meats to all the tables before us, so we never got anything but the sirloin options. Even when my husband specifically asked for the filet mignon and lamb, when they finally came to us about 15 minutes later, there was only one piece left on the skewer (though there were 4 of us who wanted some). So we had to wait another 15 minutes for the lamb. I never got a water refill. The customer service was just awful compared to my husband’s and my last visit. They must have new management (that is doing a poor job).
took forever to start the food, get our drinks, and bread. they always say the bread is in the oven.
Had a great dinner staff and atmosphere were amazing
My husband and I we had a great experience it was the first time there the food was great prices ok the service wans wonderful defenely we are coming back with all the family thank you
It’s a true gimmick, the meat was way over cooked and dry most of the time, the buffet looked sloppy and not really fresh. The potatoes, seemed to me to be half powedered half true potatoes. The wall next to where we were sitting was splattered with old food. Not worth the 57 a person, if you want good grilled meat go somewhere else.
The waiting team was spectacular, everybody was super friendly and accommodating!
Worst Fogo de Chao experience ever
They forgot to bring us some items well over 20 times that we had asked for
And the food did not taste good this evening
Over $300 for four people
We know that going in however it was not worth 20 bucks in total
Beverly Hills Fogo to ciao good
San Diego really bad
An honest review. $57 just doesn’t meet my threshold of worth. And that price point is without any types of drinks. To me it just isn’t worth the price. It’s good but not worth 65 to 85 dollars per person with drinks on the low end. I could get better meat choices at Cowboy Star for the same price with much better quality.
We took our son for his 21st birthday, with some friends. They of course LOVED the bottomless meat, and I was thrilled with the extensive delicious salads and the VERY delicious (and perfectly cooked) sea bass. It's not inexpensive by any stretch, but if you have big eaters (4 x 21 yr old guys?!?), it's great. A bit noisy but ok.
Underwhelmed by all of it. The tables are so close to each other that I had to squeeze sideways in between tables to get to the salad bar. The beef we were served was way overcooked. At no point did anyone ask us how we would like our beef served. All meats tasted the same. Way too salty. And then sticker shock when I saw the bill. We will not be going back.
I am surprised that every kind of meat could tastes so good!
I loved the service but the food was Good but pricy!
The environment was not great. We got seated in the back of the restaurant, like an overflow area. The people that were seated next to us were so loud and obnoxious it made the rest of our night miserable. The food was good but not great, but the servers were great. They were very attentive and very sweet! I probably won’t suffer this restaurant to anyone. I will add that we had a drink at the bar beforehand and the drink and bartender were fabulous!
Had a friend in from New York and she wanted something different. I can’t even express how delicious the food was and the service was beyond amazing
This was my first visit to Fogo de Chao and it was great. Highly recommend it....
I must say this place is amazing!
I’m from OC and this is my second time coming to this location and I love it. The food is outstanding and the service is just perfect! Very attentive staff and very helpful. Our waiter was amazing and brought of food on time. I wish I could remember his name to give him a A+ but overall it was an amazing experience
We went here for our anniversary dinner and it was AMAZING. It was hands down the BEST meat I have ever had. We also enjoyed the most delectable Tres Leche Cake! We will definitely be returning during our next trip to San Diego!
We were celebrating a birthday. The salad bar was good but the rice and beans were terrible. Some of the cuts of meat had a lot of fat. Also the better cuts of meat such as the lamb chops, ribs and sirloin came only once. Overall not worth the “Full Churrasco Experience” for the price.
It was a great experience. We were placed in a area where we did not have access to a lot of the meat selection. It was as though they forgot about us and it took almost 20 minutes to get a drink. The salad bar did not have a large selection.
We love you’re resturant!
Probably the best steakhouse I have been to. The overall quality, experience, and environment were spot on . The service was amazing as well as the food . Will definitely go back and reccomend.
The service was impeccable, I am not a big meat lover, but it was for my husband's birthday and he thought that it was outstanding..maybe let people know when they sit down that you have a meat alternative menu, found out at the END of dinner :(
Great experience. Food was great.
The service was fantastic and the food delicious. I would definitely recommend for any occasion.
We had a great time and received great service.
Always so much fun !
This place is chaotic and loud. The meat is not good quality, the salad bar has random stuff in it and the worst part is that it is a rip off. You’ll pay the same to go to a nice steak restaurant with prime beef, tasty sides and a great ambiance. Hard pass. I won’t be back.
This was our first time here and the experience was amazing! The staff was super attentive and food blew us away. Can't wait to go back!
Usually love, love, love this restaurant so I don’t know what happened. Meat terribly undercooked (and I like mine rare) including raw leg of lamb. The gauchos were rarely around. Took time to get anyone’s attention for request of sauces, certain meats and even the check. As my fiancée said, if this was the first time there we’d be in no hurry to go back. It was very busy and they clearly couldn’t rise to the occasion which was surprising.
My reservation was 9pm and there wasn't that much food going around. It was basically 4 items rotating. The server, I had to physically go up to and tell her I wanted a bottle of wine and then didn't see her again till the end. It was very poor service. I haven't been to the restaurant in a while and I'm not sure I'll be back.
The most amazing dining experience I've had so far. The food was soooooo good! Definitely found my new favorite spot!
This location has great services overall, the waitress were great! They were all very helpful and the service was fast and consistent for Valentine’s Day. The one complaint I could have is the tables being too close to each other but I know the restaurant is trying to get everyone in for the day. There was also a fly that got in the restaurant which was kinda annoying.
Only for the food. Staff seemed overwhelmed and at times made us feel that we were in their way. Some stood around chatting in direct line to the food bar, as we attempted to get to the food they seemed not the least bit interested in moving to the side. As we were getting ready to leave we noticed at least 3 meats that never made their way to our table.
That being said, the food overall was spectacular and it was Valentines evening. I would still go back.
Great! Always great service and great food. One of my BF and I’s top spot when we want to splurge a bit on date night
Everything was beyond amazing! So much better than I expected. And so many choices to choose from at the salad bar. I think the meat choice came by our table about every two minutes. I couldn’t even keep up! We went on Valentine’s Day, however it was still the same everyday menu. I cannot wait to go back! DELICIOUS!
👍👍 endless meat... yes please
Really nice place, great salad bar and great quality meat.
Outstanding service from the moment we walked thru the door to the moment we left. The waitstaff was incredibly friendly, the solid bar amazing and the meat was out of this world!!
My boyfriend and I ate here for an early V-Day dinner and we were pleasantly surprised. Food was delicious, we loved their black beans and salad. Also, the bread was out of this world. Steak was top of the line and boy were we pleased. Will definitely come back!!! Also, we made reservations and we were seated right away, which is always a plus.
