    It was a great experience, definitely get your bang for your buck with all of the meat options and availability offered (...if you eat your meats at a true medium doneness). The issue our party ran into was the lack of options/service for meats cooked at a more medium well (despite our server assuring us we could get any of the meats at any doneness). By the time they brought out ONE well cooked tenderloin option it was well into the end of our meal and the person in our party who required this accommodation did not get more than that one meat option the entire night (for the price of the several meat experience he ordered and paid for).

    Food was really good and the variety was great. Service was okay as it could have been improved. It was our first time and our host made it seem like it was a hassle to explain the way the place worked. Also it was a special occasion but they never really bothered to ask. Service could be greatly improved for the price of the place.

    Honestly not great food didn’t seem to be the same quality of experience as we’ve experienced in the past - service was trying to do a good job but didn’t have very good communication skills when talking to tables.

    What an amazing experience! We were served a variety of BBQ steaks and they were just cooked to perfection. It wasn’t a busy night. I see them cooking meats like 5 steaks a rod but ending up not fully served to guests since there were only 2-3 tables dining last night so then the unconsumed food needs to go back to their kitchen. That said, It was so nice of them to still cook what we requested(herbed chicken breast and lamb chops). Milton Gaucho was the rockstar of the team. He was so nice and so welcoming. The server/backwaiter who’s unsure of what wine I ordered came back to ask me and double checked. That’s a plus! The salads, fruits, etc. at the buffet are fresh and was presentable. The host/cashier did a good job too but I don’t know if she missed to read that it was my birthday celebration on the notes I made with my reservation(or maybe they just don’t do any birthday special treatment like putting a candle on our dessert or just by being greeted is something nice atleast) But overall, It was a nice dinner experience. Still 5 stars!!!

    We had such an amazing experience. It was my boyfriend and I's anniversary, it was first time and it was such a great experience. We had an amazing and attentive waitress, Romina. She was so helpful and exciting to have during our dining experience. The quality of food, service, and atmosphere was fantastic. If you ever visit this location, ask for her and she will take care of you during your visit. Fogo De Chao has never disappointed hence why I come to this location often and will continue to do so. 5 star experience and service as always.

    5 stars all around ! Our server was AMAZING. I wish I could remember her name. We came for a friends birthday. We were a group of 9 guys. The staff kept the food coming. Which is impressive considering every single guy in my party is a total carnivore. I opted for the salad bar since I’m not a big meat person. But I did enjoy their cocktails. Would definitely recommend. This location has outdoor seating as well. Would definitely come back to this specific location.

    As visitors to San Fran, we chose an exotic type dinner at Fogo in the financial district. The Brazilian meat dinner setting is always quite dramatic, in terms of the meat displays brought to your table and is usually quite a delight. The buffet salads were extensive and enjoyable. We did, however, find this particular style of meat, in particular the steaks, were very extremely salty. The chicken pieces was often dry and hard, once it came around to our table. The wine selection was outstanding. No pork review as we skipped that. Overall, for the price, we were disappointed, but the dinner still had a great international flare to it. Would I repeat? No… so much selection to choose from in this beautiful city.

    We had a reservation on Saturday at 8pm and the restaurant was not busy at all. Definitely a red flag in San Francisco on a Saturday night. The restaurant itself is nice, and the staff was friendly, but the food was just not worth the price. Most of the meats were severely overcooked or undercooked and had no flavor. As someone who loves rare meat, some of the pieces were inedible. We had to ask for salt and pepper to try and make the meal more palatable; Unfortunately that did not help much. For those that aren't aware, it's a cold food bar (think charcuterie board items) and was mediocre besides the potato salad. We came for a birthday celebration, but after 2 cuts of meat we realized that this place was not worth the $75 per person, but we were already stuck with the bill. The waiter asked if we were celebrating anything, but we said no so we could leave as soon as possible and end our disappointment. We were looking forward to going to this restaurant for a long time, but we definitely will not be coming back.

    Food: outstanding as always. The picanha was medium rare to perfection, the alcatra was so tasteful and the fraldinha was tender and juicy. Queijo coalho with honey was also amazing. Service: I have no words for how amazingly well we were treated. Willian was so sweet, and introduce us to the options, to the buffet, he was the best waiter we could have asked for. We’re so thankful for this amazing service. Ambiance: the Brazilian songs as background are a plus to the visit! We loved it.

    No one acknowledged the special occasion despite having made reservations. The only steaks that came around were top and bottom skirt steak. No ribeye was even offered and we got filet minon ONCE in the 1.5 hours we were there. VERY disappointing. Also, the sides were not very good. I will not dine here again.

    Out of our party of nine, it was the first time eight of us ate at a Brazilian steakhouse. Everyone absolutely loved it at Fogo de Chao. Six of us are going back to Japan to spread the news about how lovely the food, ambience and service is. Special thanks to our server, Camila, who crossed all language barriers to ensure everyone was more than happy. I am especially grateful for this feat, as we had a couple negative experiences in the city that day. It wasn’t until we sat down at Fogo and Camila spoke with us that everyone’s mood shifted dramatically positive. And of course, the meal was fantastic. Thank you so much!!!

    Kids under 12 eat for free! My favorite was the Paremesan Pork, fried cheese and honey, New York steak and cheesecake! We were hesitant to bring our kids since they barely eat anything and not worth the normal adult pricing for all you can eat....but kids under 12 eat free so we didnt have to worry...

    I love all you can eat Brazilian steakhouses but Fogo de Chao is by far hands down the best of the best. From the meats to the sides and even the salad bar no other Brazilian restaurant comes close to this one. The staff is also amazing, everybody there is trying to make your experience better. Amazing establishment.

    The food was not what I remember. The meat tasted very odd - like it was old or it was cleaned with chemicals. The service was fine but we were not happy with the food at all. The cheese bread was the only thing we consistently enjoyed. Unfortunately, we will not return in the future.
