I’ve been to a couple different Brazilian steak houses and this has a smaller variety at the salad bar. Fruit, veggies, and cheese. We had to ask the waiter to bring us the finer cuts of steak - top sirloin and filet mignon, as they kept bringing the chicken and sausage to the table.

Meat is delicious, waiter and staff are all very kind and responsive! We celebrated a birthday with a party of 10 and they were very accommodating of the two kids!

Just a tip- no strollers allowed on the floor. You have to leave it by the door. The restaurant is packed so it’s hard to maneuver between tables, let alone push a stroller to your table.

Our server left, or something happened. Never saw her again mid-point through our meal. We waited over half an hour for our check.

We asked for lamb cuts about 3 times and it never came. I was expecting more from the service.

the meat offers various cuts of pork, beef, lamb, and chicken, with fish and shrimp on the buffett. The chef knows what he is doing. The side table and deserts are fresh and tempting. There are some unusual offerings among the many standbys that most people find tempting. One feels healthy the next day, too.

Love the salad bar and the different options you can select (full experience, salad bar, sirloin steak only). The one thing I did notice was that a lot of times the sirloin steak comes out a bit salty. I find myself eating really salty bites at times. Not sure if this is done intentionally, but wanted to share for your reference.

Amazing service! We went to Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse for a birthday celebration. They made it so special by adding some candles to the dessert for our birthday girl. The food is awesome but it's the service that I am impressed with.

The food and service do not worth the price.
The price is too expensive for the buffet.
The service is not corresponding to the place like Santana Row.
It is OK for regular eatery

I've eaten at this Fogo de Chau several times and really like the meats, salad bar, and desserts. Each time except for this last one was a great experience. This last time I found the service to be lacking in attention and the people serving the meats to be unconcerned with whatever cut they served us. None of them asked how we like ours cooked. I'm hoping the next time is better than this last one.

Fogo De Chao never disappoints. The selection of meats was wide, and the meats were very well seasoned. Unfortunately, much of the meat was also well done. The restaurant was somewhat crowded, so other patrons got all the best meat before we could. The selection of accoutrements was comprehensive, and the ambience is good consistently across all fogo properties. The salad bar had some welcome surprises, such as marinated mushrooms or French cheese, but lagged behind competitors in selection of vegetables and availability.

Great selection of meats and always great service. We had a reservation and had to wait almost 20 minutes even with it, which was not ideal. We almost went to another restaurant!

I had the reservation set for 8:30 for a birthday dinner for a friend, but they didnt seat us until 8:50. The hostess was a little rude also, then not 1 person told my friend happy birthday. It was in the reservation... oh well, food was great and the servers were awesome.

This may sound counterintuitive BUT they've jammed so many tables so close together it's hard to get around or be seated without bumping into someone and, when you're carrying a plate between point "A" and point "B", that's not fun. It's busy, loud and the service was just so-so. We made a reservation, it was honored LATE and once we were seated and near done, the staff started aggressively clearing the table around/under us. Aggressive is the best word for it, they were asking us to pass plates to them and it was, to say the least, a distraction. I've been to other Fogo restaurants, and enjoyed my time there, but this one was seriously UNDERwhelming and would not be one I would go back to.
