Wait staff was incredible and saved our visit. The “manager” on duty left much to be desired. We had a 6:45 reservation and didn’t get seated until 8:00 with 2 young children. At 45 minutes into our wait my husband asked what was taking so long and they told us we were 5 mins late. I had called ahead to let them know our Uber was lost. I would never go back simply because of the way the “manager” treated us, but everyone else was amazing.

Overall a poor experience. For starters the air was broken and we had to wait 40 minutes to be seated (8PM reservation).The dining room was muggy and over crowded. We were seated in the back room excluded from the main dining area and it really felt that way. The food inconsistently came out (we did the experience) barely any sides were served and we only received 7 of the 16 meats we were supposed to get. The service was really the issue for us as people had either empty plates or empty drinks. We pretty much ordered a round of drinks every time a server appeared but still had to wait a long time for them to come. The bill was fairly cheap but with that being said the majority of the trip wasn’t enjoyable. No AC (in July) and when I approached the manger she responded that “it was on but there are just a lot of people inside” Not the answer I was looking for as my party of 13 were in reality sweating with either no cocktail or food.

Got seated right on time with our reservation but there were too few staff to handle the crowd. It made for a poor experience. Food was good but it wasn’t the usual Fogo experience I’ve had at other locations.

So let’s start with the good:
1. the food - this was good.
2. at the end of the meal a very helpful manager asked if there was anything in particular we wanted them to bring - she was amazing & almost made up for the rest of the problems

The bad:
1. our waiter was so quiet that we struggled to hear anything he said (and we are in our mid-40’s so no age comments please 😊) and he just loitered when we said we needed a few minutes to decide (very off putting)
2. The place was so rammed with people that even the waiting staff struggled to get around … had to keep shuffling my chair for them to get around. Please space out the tables a LOT more

We dined in celebration of my girlfriend's birthday, and the restaurant far exceeded our expectations. We opted for the Churrasco experience which was nothing short of excellent! The food was phenomenal, the staff was exceptional, and the overall experience was wonderful. We will definitely be back!

p.s. - management, if you're seeing this, Eric was the first server who waited on us and he was amazing! He simply explained how the entire experience worked, and his energy was infectious!

This was my first time and what fun! I was in town helping my son and his best friend get settled into their new apartment and we loved our meal last night. The meats were seasoned and cooked perfectly, the service was attentive and the manager (a lovely young lady whose name I never got!) came to our table twice to assist us asking if there was a particular meat my sons would like to end with (yes, lamb!) and the lamb appeared within seconds! Class act all the way!

I think our waiter was the worst experience of the whole dinner. We were seated and within 1 minute he was at the table asking for all of our orders, drinks, appetizers, and food. We didn't even get a chance to scan the QR code. He kept pushing these appetizers- there were 8 of us- and turned out that his instance added another $60 to our bill. And it really was because he wouldn't take no that we needed more time as an answer. No sides were placed until I asked the manager who was walking by & extremely nice, we wished that he was the person that helped us from the start. I never write bad reviews, but I thought this was needed so that others don't have the same experience. Really the food was delicious & the experience is so fun.

Gave the restaurant another try after an unpleasant experience for our daughter’s graduation. It is safe to say we never will go back. They didn’t have the wine that was on the menu so the server (an adorable young man who wasn’t actually our server) brought me an alternative, which was $9 more per glass than the one I had ordered. When I asked him about it he said “I guess I forgot to tell you about that part”. I ordered a cafe cocktail but requested it with a cappuccino instead of coffee, which didn’t come out correctly. Rather than fix it, the same young man joked about them not getting it right, but made zero attempt to perhaps get me what I had ordered.
We had purchased gift cards for Christmas, which meant we got a gift card to use throughout the year. We spent $400 and got a gift card for $100. We intended to use it last night, but found out that we were not able to use it on alcohol. I feel as though the marketing is extremely misleading and dishonest to the clientele, and to be honest shows the intent and lack of integrity of the restaurant. We ended up just applying our almost $90 gift card to another tables tab.
Sadly, for a restaurant that charges what they do for each person walking through their door it is apparent their goal is not to provide positive experiences for their guests. It’s a shame.

Very interesting idea for a restaurant and has a unique vibe that is different than any restaurant I have been to. There’s a market buffet but also expensive meats that they bring around to each table and cut a piece off for you if your table coaster is green. Lots of Brazilian appetizers served throughout the experience as well. The food was delicious!

Ah man I was looking forward to this one, made reservations a week before for Father’s Day. Reservations were an hour behind. Crazy packed we had to wait out side mid summer in Phoenix! Once we were seated all we wanted was cold water, that took a while. However the food and the service was amazing! If y’all are going to have that many people inside there needs to be some fans on the ceiling or better AC because man it was also hot AF inside. I don’t think I’ll be back but food was delicious and our server was on point.
