The food was delicious. Biggest issue is that because we were seated at the back, near the restroom, there were long spans of time where there were no servers coming round with skewers. We had to wait quite a long time between servers.

I have to say that my family and I are thoroughly impressed with the great service the staff provided on Thanksgiving dinner. They were attentive to the needs and one glance around to see where the meat was, and someone shows up and asks if there was something I needed. Wow!! This is the 3rd time that we are at this restaurant and will be our go-to for when we are in need of meats.

I think to net it all out, it’s very expensive the salad bar terrific, the meat they serve (where they bring out 1 at a time continual until you turn the card over to red) ok. There’s a system that appears, lowest grade meat first, better stuff later on (when your somewhat full). It’s also highly salted (to me anyway) which makes you thirstier.

great service great food but when I requested wheelchair accessible table we were kind of stuck on the side and had to request that servers with steak etc come to our table...it was our 14th wedding anniversary so they treated us to a desert. nice..

The food was amazing per usual. The service could’ve been a little better. Previously going there the service was outstanding, when the manager from Santa Monica was there, but tonight was more just fair. Food is amazing though I guess it may be a toss up when it comes to service.

Overall it was a pleasant experience, but I noticed after the table behind me was seated I stopped being visited by the staff that dispenses the meat. I spent a 15 min stretch with no one stopping by while the table behind me got served. I tried to get there attention without success.

Everything was excellent. Me and my boyfriend have been here a few times before and have done the $59 dinner that they have. We decided to go in this past weekend for their “Best of Brazil” promo at a special price of $39.50 plus tax. And I have to say even though it excludes some of the meats, it was still EXCEPTIONALLY delicious!

I was disappointed because I have been here before and there are usually a lot of different options brought out but this time they just kept bringing the same couple of options and did not come around a lot. The place was not crowded that night and not all of our orders were correct.

Though reservations are made well in advance, this is my fifth visit where I've had to wait for a minimum of 20 minutes until seated.

The staff presenting the meats have always been curt, inattentive or outright rude.

Our first experience at this particular Fogo de Chao was terrible. But we were nearby and I decided to give it a second chance....and it was great! Tonight's meats were good, service was good, nothing I can really complain about. Well, maybe the buffet table's offerings can have more selections, but with all those delicious meats properly cooked to different temperatures for the different preferences between my wife and I, not having more sides didn't bother me at all.

Really glad we went back. This location is now ranked higher in my list than the one in San Francisco, and its closer to where I live, and has a nearby free public parking lot.

Over all it’s over priced for what it is ! The meat was ok but super salty for me. I’d skip the cocktails and order wine In my opinion , other then that I wouldn’t go out of my way to come here again .

I would have given a full 5-Stars, but our waiter mixed up our check with another party's and charged my card for more than what I was supposed to be charged. He then proceeded in charging my card the correct amount, but the original charge was never reversed. Very disappointing because I love this place!

We always enjoy this Fogo de Chao - always nicely busy, attentive service and great meat. This visit we thought the meat was particularly great - right off the grill, and nicely rare selections.

poor service. Very hard to get waiter to table. Towards end of lunch, took over 20 min to flag someone down for desert menu. By that time we didn’t want our second drink, nor desert anymore. Don’t think we will be back.

My husband loves to take me on a date here. We both love the Pincanha. I personally like the cheese bread by a lot.
The service is great! We always pick this place whenever we’re craving good quality meats and even whenever there’s somebody’s birthday!
Nice ambiance.
Food is amazing.
