    Due to conflicting schedules, my family could not meet on Thanksgiving day. The staff accommodated my party of 10 and did so with smiles on their face. Three of us are vegetarian, and the salad and side dish table kept them quite happy. Some had eaten in the churrascaria style, but most hadn't. They all raved about the experience. Well done!

    My group of 7 went to our brunch time reservation and we thought the food and ambiance was really good. Unfortunately, we had a terrible time with our server and one of the managers. We had to send someone to the front desk to get our bill because our server disappeared halfway through brunch. To make matters worse when we received the bill we were being charged for 8 people despite the server counting us and our reservation mentioning 7 people. It turned out that the male manager on duty was insistent our group was to be charged for 8 people. To get this corrected they called a female manager who then called the server to clear this up. This manager was nice throughout and even asked what the occasion for eating out was and offered a dessert. She was amazing and compliment her to the highest regard. The male manager though was terrible and was still saying we had 8 people in our group as we were leaving. This left a very bad impression of the restaurant on what otherwise would have been a great one.

    My problem with Fogo de Chao is the constant up selling that they do. Always a guy coming by with a bottle of something trying to get you to buy and add to an already pricey bill. And their corkage fee is $35! Highest I’ve ever seen. Food is great but the steady show of salesmen is annoying.

    The Thanksgiving food was delicious, but all of the meats and the bar area were so-so. Lacking in flavor. Waiters were confused, ppl cutting off the meat didn’t pay attention to the green/red signs, so loud, and very high priced for what we thought it would be. It was a gloried buffet.

    The meats were good. The salad bar was okay and didn’t have too much variety. The service was sub-par. I requested extra fried bananas which never came. My daughter’s salmon came when we were almost done with our churasco experience. We had to ask about it 3 times and our waiter never even noticed that she hadn’t received her food yet. Disappointed in the service.

    Fogo de Chao - San JoseResponded on November 23, 2022While we are glad you enjoyed our quality cuts, Trang, we are saddened our market table was lacking in variety.

We celebrated my husbands 40th birthday and she went above and beyond to make sure my husbands special day was even more special! I will definitely go back there again and highly recommend everyone to go

    Took my family here for anniversary dinner . Wasn’t happy with the food . All the meats tasted over cooked and dry. Some of the steak we tried was burnt . The lamb was plain and simple gross.lWas very disappointed in the quality of the food and the refill on the salad bar was slow we went around 615 they were busy but I would think they would do a better job. From this experience I would not come back especially for the $$ not worth it I don’t recommend this place if you have large family way to expansive all the meats are over cooked .

    Fogo de Chao - San JoseResponded on November 10, 2022Sukh, thank you for joining us for this special occasion.

    Service was subpar. After checkin in, we were told to go to our table at the back of the restaurant instead of walking us there. After sitting down, we kept on waiting and had to flag down someone to take our orders. In the meantime, many employees walked passed us. After order, food was O.K but was very rushed. Overall, for a $500 tab for four adults and one child, we won’t be returning mostly due to poor customer service.

    Food was good. Service from our waiter was absolutely horrible when we declined the appetizer and meat upsets. Listen I respect the justly but don’t completely disappear when we decline the upsell. And when we orders a bottle Of wine he pushed the most expensive bottles. When we declined this we never saw him again. We were a party of six and we’re going to spend the money here, just without the upsell.

It far exceeded our expectations and is a great value. The servers all went over and above to make sure we had everything we needed.

    We wasn't sure how things went as far as who serves what and how to get started eating. We sat there maybe about 15 - 20 mins when a waiter came by an ask if we had been served. We did have our waiter come and introduce his self and brought us wine but that was it. So when this young man came walking by he explain to us how it works and from then on our dining experience was fabulous. Once you flip the card on your table all kinds of meat come flowing to your table. There is a wonderful salad bar as well. They also offer smaller plates for those who are not that hungry. I would suggest if it's your very first time to come hungry, come with a big appetite to really enjoy the experience.

    This was for a wine pairing dinner. Liked that the courses were discussed, and then the wines. Plenty of food, and all was cooked perfectly. You get a lot of food with the four courses. Have done this three times and each one is better than last.
