    Food was beyond delicious. If I had one complaint it would be the servers brought the food too fast and it was difficult to keep up. But that’s minor.

    This is my 4th visit to this San Francisco branch of Fogo de Chao. With a reservation of 2 We were seated promptly after checking in at 1pm. Waiting for around 5-7 minutes, there was still no staff approaching us. I decided to call the attention of one staff and she apologized about the wait. Her name is Marcella. I only requested for a chimichurri but as expected we were served with enough small side dish plates that we barely touched. Marcella was generous enough to serve us. Salad bar has many choices to choose from. I just didn’t like the texture of the eggplants, for me they came out too dry and slightly burnt. I also noticed that there are only few staffs going around serving these fire roasted meats. I was waiting for more but we didn’t get much choices. I assumed maybe because we were seated on the other end of the dining area. Marcella also recommended a dessert which we enjoyed.

    It was good food was. When you walked in you expect a very welcoming front end associate but she was lacking customer service skills and she even speaks so low you can't hear anything especially she's also wearing her mask. She's not very friendly or accommodating. I asked her for another chair since there's 6 people since there was a high chair in replacement she then removes the high chair and gets another chair. All she had to do was add a chair and it'll still fit. Anyway, just a very inconsistent customer service and I know it's so hard to find

    We were there for new year’s eve and I had an 8:15pm reservation, I know it would be a bit of a wait since it a bussy day but after 1:20min asking the “manager” if I’ll have a table soon and the answer was always (you are next), I was really upset and this “manager” font even look at you when he is telling you that you have to wait a couple more min. He sat some other people several times even without reservation just because it was a party of 2 and makes wait almost 1.5 hrs. Other than that, the food is always good and the servers are really nice.

    Horrible first time experience. Went here for my birthday and they sent majority of the workers home because it was slow. Meat servers were walking past us with the meats to start from the back and work their way to the front and by the time they got to us they were out of meat. This happened for a good 15 minutes we couldn’t take it anymore so we just paid our bill and left.

    It was Christmas night, and in a touristy part of town, so I lowered my expectations, but IT WAS GREAT! We waited 15 minutes to be seated - but there was mulled wine and flavored water and cheese puffs - so no problem. Lovely wait staff, who explained the churrasco experience to us so we understood. Then it was meat meat meat! Delicious and delightful experience...

    Das Ambiente war sehr schön, das Vorspeisen-/Salatbuffet war sehr gut. Allerdings war die Qualität des Fleisches nur mittelmäßig: das Flanksteak und das Sirloin waren zäh, das Picanha mal sehr gut, mal weniger gut. Meine Bekannte hatte Lachs (à la carte) bestellt, der viel zu durch gebraten wurde und super trocken war. Enttäuscht waren wir von dem Service: die Fleischspieße kamen nur sehr selten an den Tisch.

    The food was what we expected. I’ve been there before, however, the waiter, Rudolpho, was rude and overwhelmed. He asked me what type of water I wanted. I asked what kind of water does he serve? He replied, you can have sparkly water or San Francisco tap water. When I asked what kind of Chardonnay they had, he replied, read the menu.

    Steaks were rare; cook appeared annoyed that we wanted our steak well done. For $80 per person, buffet option and variety were lacking. Sodas are not refil, meat servers were scarce. Out 30+ Brazilian steak houses this was by far the worse. I left unsatisfied and annoyed. We proceeded to go to midnight mass, and I regretted not having chosen Italian vs Fogo de Chao, and I am Brazilian and from Porto Alegre. If I could give 0 starts I would have.

    Fogo de Chao - San FranciscoResponded on December 27, 2022Graziella, we take a great deal of pride in the cuts we serve, and they should always be cooked to our guest's preferences.

    The food was amazing and the meat was very flavorful. Everything was amazing perfect for Christmas Eve dinner to celebrate. I enjoyed myself and the service was great. The only complaint was that we had to ask for the sides potatoes and the fried bananas. The patio was set up with the heaters and mule wine for the guests to wait for their table.

    Were seated rather quickly upon arrival despite it being super busy and arriving 8mins late for our reservation. Our server explained to us how everything worked since it was our first time there. Food was very good but got a couple dry pieces of chicken. Everything else was cooked to perfection. Dessert was good, I had a creme brulee and molten chocolate cake. Will def go again!
