    Food is decent, but nothing special for the price point. They didn't bring out the entire variety of meats advertised on their menu. Wouldn't go again since this is expensive and felt like I didn't get my money's worth in regard to quality. Service was lacking.

    The food, and service were up to Fogo's usual excellent standards. The only BIG negative was the table towards the back of the restaurant (we were in the middle) letting their 4 kids run around, play tag. This was okay, it was their screaming that was loud and shrill for a hour. I understand kids to be kids, but at least they could have kept the noise down and no let their kids scream at the top of their lungs. This ruined an otherwise great lunch between friends.

    Saturday lunch time has the brunch option with limited A-la-carte option. There is no option for the salad bar + meat option of choice as we had seen on the online menu. Being a non beef eater we had to go for the churrasco experience knowing most of the items we won't be eating. Lamb made one round in 1 hour. That too 3 out of the four in the group got small pieces. Never saw the the sausage reach our table. Chicken and bacon wrapped chicken keeps making rounds. Beef did show up. In short a forgettable experience. Felt like an overpriced salad bar.

    There’s no need to remove the little plates that is already on the table. Those side plates are good for the customers to place their bread on. Why must the employees remove them???

    Great brunch spot. Market table has improved since the beginning of the year. Meats were cooked to temp (Med rare for beef), and very tasty—though some slices were a little on the salty side. The bone in rib-eye and double cut pork chops stood out. Beef ribs were great as usual. Attentive service, even though we were the only people seated outside.

    The service was impeccable. Near the end of our meal, a manager came by and asked if there was anything we missed from the gauchos. I let them know that lamb chops never came around and the manager brought cooked to order chops to our table straight from the grill.

    Experience was just okay, certain meats took awhile to come by, had to request twice/three times for the ones we actually did like. Not worth the price we paid. Kids pricing is a joke, they don’t eat that much to be paying such price especially for the quality. I do want to call out my surprise as the broccoli was OLD, as in discoloring and they still chose to serve it. I also ordered a glass of wine and they were trying to charge me a bottle, if I hadn’t been adamant about checking my receipts, I would have paid a bottle. Tsk tsk. Would I go back? Nope. Is it worth the price? Nope. Save your money and go to a great quality steakhouse.

    Great steaks as always. Nice hot and juicy all the time. The variety was a bit less than before but nevertheless still a lot to chose from.. And they didn’t raise their prices like all those other post pandemic silly restaurant. Even though meat prices have gone through the roof. Well done guys. Well done.

    While it was churrasco experience they brought only limited selection of meat cuts. Last time I visited they brought twice or three times as much variety. Also some meats were too rare and some too fatty.

    James was our stellar waiter. I arrived early to increase odds of outside seating and pre-check staff let me know I would get the seating I needed. When my party arrived, we were seated immediately. Unfortunately, there were no interesting beverages I could order as I don’t drink alcohol and mock tails were ginger or citrus-based. James made sure I had plenty of water though. I ordered the salmon and for the price was less than thrilled. It was too crispy and relatively dry on the inside. The asparagus was super thin and there were like 5 spears. Uninspiring. The market table was deep inside the restaurant and I didn’t visit it. Grateful James brought some bread. The Brazilian flan was thick and too rich for me. Expensive dinner not worth the price.

    Servers continually passed by our table with cuts of meat we specifically asked for without offering to us. This happened about 5-6 times before we just gave up and left before getting a few things we were very excited to try. Another party was being extremely loud, singing with volume enough to drown out the entire dining room. This was my second time here and a vast disappointment compared to the first. Don’t go on a busy night like this one, you will get nowhere near the best possible experience at this restaurant. Sadly a disappointment
