My most recent visit was underwhelming. The red meats were all cooked "done" and tasted dry and hard. There was very little variety. I came in at 1:30pm for lunch. I assume it was too closed to the restaurant's break, and they didn't to bring out more meats. The servers were inattentive, except for 1 person that helped me at the end. Some servers did not know the restaurant's carry out policy and asked to buy something to take home. Overall, not tye typical experience I'm used to, and I have been to this location 5 times.

We had a great experience at the Sunday Brunch. Wasn't overly crowded the noise level was fine, EXCELLENT SERVICE by Tommy, and we sat right by the food bar and it was kept very clean and full. Night times when we have gone is much louder, so we may be back for brunch !!

I have been to this location in the past and had no issues whatsoever, but this time around I'm not sure if it was the return from COVID, or it just being busy, but the meat variety was VERY poor. We were offered the same cut of meat over and over again, and never saw other cuts of meat, even after asking our server to ensure they were sent over our way. The meats we did get was very good, but we were looking for some variety, not just the same offerings over and over again. All other aspects of the meal were fine, and other than not being able to wrangle us some other cuts of meat the servers were attentive and friendly. I would still return to this location, but the outing was disappointing, and considering it was to celebrate a 50th birthday I was expecting more.

Food was just ok, service was terrible. We waited 45 minutes without getting a refill on our drink as servers kept passing our table and then we had to flag someone down just to get our check. We told the manager about the experience and she was not apologetic at all, just gave excuses and attitude. You would expect with the amount of money you pay that you would get better service. You can go anywhere else and pay a lot less with better food and service.

This was our last nice dinner of our vacation. Since our reservation was later in the evening, I assumed it would be a little quieter. Nope! It was post pandemic mayhem! The place was absolutely packed and loud! Although we had a reservation, we still had to wait 30 minutes for our table. The table was not ready when we were seated and the server verbally scolded the young man in front of us for not having the table set. It wasn’t a big deal, but we just kept running into issues after that. It took a while to get our drinks - understandable with the business levels. Water was served after the drinks. Waited in a line at the market table. We were served raw sirloin. It looked fresh when she brought it to our table, then when she actually cut into it and served it, it was not rare, it was raw! Red and cold in the middle. Gross! Our worst part was the water. Half way through the glass, my son noticed something at the bottom that appeared to be sand. My daughter and I noticed the same in ours. We brought it to the attention of the server, and she explained it off as ‘Parmesan cheese’ that may have come off our lips and gotten into the glass. Hmmm, we are all adults and understand what floaties are, this was not the case. She said she would get us new glasses. We waited…. another gentleman cleared the plates off our table and said they were backed up and didn’t have any clean glasses. This is something that could be happening at an Applebee’s, but should not be happening at a higher class restaurant such as Fogo. When we finally got our water, we drank a little, and noticed it again. You could not explain this as food this time since our table was now cleaned of plates. I had 2 of your signature drinks, and, honestly, since I am not a drinker, I should have been a little tipsy and was not. There was nothing spectacular about any of the food this time either. Just all around disappointing. Definitely not worth our money.

My family and I have enjoyed going to Fogo for many years. While the full Churrasco experience is always a good time and the food is usually delicious, the service continues to be a mixed bag. Upon arriving at our table, the gentleman who first served us was friendly and attentive. However, as is often the case at Fogo, the service goes from being very good, to being noticeably absent for long periods at a stretch. Particularly frustrating this last visit was the dirty dishes situation. Despite there seeming to be a full compliment of bus staff, no one ever came to clear our used plates or glasses. At one point, my wife simply took it upon herself to go get fresh plates and we had to ask a couple of times to have our dirty plates and glasses away. Also, there was a complete lack of the best cuts of beef until we specifically asked for them to come. The Picanha, the Fraldinha, and the Alcatra are among our favorite cuts, yet none was offered until we flagged down a server and specifically requested it. To be fair, once we asked, the good stuff came quickly and the quality was excellent. We will continue to come to Fogo and it’s always a fun night out, but it seems that inconsistent service continues to be the norm here.

Servers were nice but service was slow: slow to bring the meats, slow to bring sides, slow to refill salad bar — yet it was the middle of the afternoon and restaurant was about 1/3 full. Beef and lamb good; pork over cooked; chicken never came by. Would not return.

Food was ok some of the meat was very dry. Our problem was with the service. At first we thought the waiter was new, but during dinner we discovered he wasn't. He was not very attentive, very slow to remove dirty plates and when we asked for anything we waited forever. I have been to this restaurant several times and by far this was my worse experience. For the price this was unacceptable!

When we first arrived, We got seated and the host left and we waited about 10 min till we got waited. Ended up choosing the full churascao experience, went to the salad bar, and got our food. Waited for another 15 min to get the side dishes (beans, rice, polenta, etc) from the waiter. During this time a lot of cuts were not being cycled through. Had to do a few special requests that took awhile to prepare, which is understandable. The beef ancho came out on a plate and was way under seasoned. Every chicken item was extremely dry. Overall the experience did not feel fullfilling as it typically is at Fogo. Not too welcoming after returning from a pandemic.

Where do I begin. The best part of my dinner last night was surprisingly the dessert. I expected so much more from a Brazilian steak house. The food was sub-par, lacking flavor, of course besides the flavor of just meat. I expected a marvelous meal and received something far less then Imaginable from a “top of the line steak house.” Hopefully it was just an off night but I can sure tell you this...I WILL not be back any time soon.

We had a very nice time celebrating my girlfriends birthday. The food was above par. There was more than enough meats to choose from so even some of the fatty cuts didn’t phase us because we left those cuts on our plate. The dessert at the end was delic. You can’t go wrong with the cheesecake or the Keylime pie. The only knock against our evening was the fact they didn’t go out of their way to mention happy birthday to my girlfriend even though I mentioned it to them all in the beginning of our dining experience. Even when booking the reservation on open table I mentioned that we’re going there in celebration of my girlfriends birthday. But overall, the servers were great.

I'm trying to be gracious as the place is understaffed and has new staff.
BUT
What's the point of a 7pm reservation if we're not seated for almost half an hour? Had I known that, I would have made the reservation for 6:30.
Longer than usual wait for server greeting/drink order.
Longer than usual wait for gauchos to come by with additional meat offerings.
Extremely long wait for our to-go desserts to arrive, after confirming the order three times.
