Steak are really good... staff are attentive... salad station is not as much as what they have in Las Vegas and LA branches... I will still go back though just because of the steak and staff 😂

I felt that this was way too much food. It forces a guest to eat more than they need to eat which causes food to be wasted. I would rather have had the great ambiance and quality of food, but less food and less expensive so I could enjoy this restaurant more often. Petite filet was quite tender, but other cuts of beef tended to be a little less tender.

It truly was a wonderful first time experience, from the moment we walked in we were taken care of. The food was amazing I couldn't believe I waited so long to go. The creme brulee was incredibly delicious. Thank you for such great service.

The cuts of meat and the side dishes were fantastic. There was a wide variety and many of the options came around 2-3 times. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The seating is quite snug, but overall a great dinner and amazing food.

The cost was eye watering compared to the quality of the food. The service was poor. I blame myself, it was like that the last time. I think I will remember this time.

I guess I can’t really complain about the food - fresh salads and well cooked meat. But the whole thing is pretty trashy. And people where suits to this like it’s fancy. I wish the meat would have had some sauces - I know you don’t need them if it’s cooked well but I still want one. And the meat was cooked well but every meat was cooked the same way - stuck on a stick and fire grilled or something. That’s fine but it made all the meat taste the same. And each meat demands a different cooking method anyway. This worked well for the Chicken where it imparted lots of good smoked flavour but not so well for the filet which in my mind was treated poorly just being grilled and not cared for like the cut demands. But whatever it was still cooked well.

The real spit in the the face was the dessert (and yes it was so bad I liken it to a put in the face ) it was like something from Denny’s or something. Firstly the menu they showed me to pick a dessert had some dessert which want even offered anymore and I don’t know why you would show me the menu then. Then after that he says “oh we have a new chocolate dessert like that “ and I said “I’ll take of it those then.” Then he comes back and says they’re out but they have molten chocolate cake. I usually don’t order molten cakes because it’s not 1995 but I got one because it was the only thing chocolate. So anyway it comes out like I’m at a cheap diner with chocolate syrup on it (they would have written happy birthday if it was my birthday) and a limp strawberry for no good reason. And to add insult to injury they microwaved the thing before sending it out. I mean come on.

And to top it off, all this was 90 dollars per person. I’ve had michelin star meals for a few dollars more.

We got a reservation early as we had two young kids. It seemed as if the good cuts of meat didn’t start making rounds until the place starting filling up. That’s not fair, should be for all at all times.

First time ate there. Food was very good and service was very good. Make sure if you never ate there before that you ask your waitress how your meal is served.

Didn’t know they have the dinner menu prices on NYE
Apparently it’s always that way on holidays which means lunch was double the price. Oh well
Used my rewards points fir the $10 off so that helped.
Food and service here is superb

I’ve been to FDC before and the service was better than my most recent visit. It was loud and very crowded making the experience less than fully enjoyable. Had to ask waitstaff for drinks and our requests were forgotten. Rarely saw our primary waitperson. Won’t be returning during the holidays

We have been going to brazillian steakhouses for special events for several years. The last time we were at this Fogo De Chao was back in 2015. We were excited to return as last time it was excellent.
When preparing for this visit I read the reviews from the past several weeks and was shocked at the poor reviews. After our visit, we agree entirely with the reviews.
The sirloin, all 3 types, were so tough and gristled to the point of being inedible. The other cuts came around rarely as there were many large groups so all cuts would be gone before getting to our table. The service wasn't terrible but it was slow. We had to ask 3 separate servers for drink refills.
After that the dessert that we seriously crave because it's usually so amazing, was awful! They changed the recipe and/or chef and it really shows.
We will sadly not be back and instead go to another steakhouse in Scottsdale.

it was an overcrowded zoo.

fire marshal would have shut it down
10 deep line for salad bar...f that.
we arrived on time for our reservation yet we weren’t going to be seated for 30 to 45+ minutes after our on-time arrival. ya no. we left and went somewhere else and had a fantastic meal and experience not sure I’m going back there- ever

My husband and I finally tried Fogo de Chao and we were not disappointed! The food was fresh and tasty and the employees were very pleasant and helpful. However, what really made the night shine was the outstanding customer service from Norma Iniquez! She was very professional and made sure that we were receiving the cuts of meat we were looking for.

Since our visit to the restaurant was so close to Christmas, the restaurant was packed and there were many large parties. Norma made sure that all of the customers received equal and outstanding service. We will definitely dine at Fogo de Chao again
