Salad bar is mediocre and prices are high

Delicious food and plenty of the meats going around. Favorite place to get Brazilian steak. The cheesy bread and mashed potatoes are top notch. Also a great selection from the cold bar. Highly recommend especially when they have a deal to receive a complimentary lunch/dinner.

This spot was PERFECT for my meat-loving carnivore of a husband to celebrate our anniversary!

We went to this place for happy hour and really enjoyed it. I have wanted to dine at this restaurant for some time. Now, having gone to Fogo de Chao for dinner, I found it not worth the wait. The food was fair, the service was less than average. Part of the problem was my fault - I should never have booked a seat on Valentine's day. They advertised Chicken (was not offered), lamb (was not offered), sausage (was not offered), and beef (excellent). So if you are in the mood to be ignored, eat from an average salad bar, be served less than half the menu, barely warm mashed potatoes and polenta fries - this is the place for you. Not for me.

1st time here at Fogo and I had an amazing time. I didn’t not know the pricing before dinner, but it was definitely worth the price. There were a lot of flavorful meat options and the bar was great as well. I will definitely be coming back here in the future.

Great food! Service was on the downside and at one point a waiter dropped all his plates on our table. Had to ask for the check 3 times. I think most of this was due to a busy Valentine’s Day but overall not bad.

The food was amazing like always but I guess where my family and i were sitting we were skipped over a lot by the waiters. It took me two times to tell the staff about it but afterwards the waiters finally came and served us food.
