I’m not one that writes reviews often.
We ordered water to start. Didn’t get there for 10 minutes.
The side started dishes came and the market table happened while waiting for water.
There were a few large parties so it would be 5-10 minutes between when food was brought around to our table.
The communication between the servers seems very little.
In all of the times I have dined with Fogo, I haven’t had a disappointing experience until now.

The only negatives are the amount of food that you want to eat and being asked constantly to order another cocktail. The variety and amount of food is awesome. We were there at what seemed to be the perfect time. The meats were abundant, fresh and most of the different types came out at least 3 times in the 90 minutes we were there. The best was the filet, but that only came out once. Therefore, we asked to have another helping and were served within minutes. The market table has a nice variety of fresh interesting choices, but it takes away from the meat experience. We will definitely be back to enjoy another experience on our next special occasion.

Several years ago we ate at the Fogo de Chao in Minneapolis and we had a wonderful and romantic dinner. We ate at the Scottsdale location for the first time on 11/30/18. This location was like eating at a cafeteria (for those of you who don't remember cafeterias this is not a compliment). Rather than servers, there are "guides". Our guide rushed us to order a drink and an appetizer, brought our drinks and then we never saw him the rest of the evening (anywhere in the restaurant). After waiting over 30 minutes for the cold seafood platter we ordered, my husband flagged down another "guide" as he rushed past us and ask him to check on it. Someone brought it out to us right away. When I asked for cocktail forks, we were told that they don't have them. The food was mediocre at best. We flipped our coasters to green when we wanted meat but the selection was very limited (I'm not sure where all the other meats were that they listed on the menu). Any service we received the entire evening was only because we would ask someone as they walked by our table (we were never approached). We were celebrating our anniversary. While I was in the restroom, a "guide" brought a complementary desert to our table. I asked my husband what it was and he said he didn't know because it was tossed on to the table without even asking if we would like coffee or an after dinner drink. We frequently dine at Flemings and for the same price of our dinner at Fogo we could have eaten at Flemings and enjoyed a leisurely dinner, with good food and professional service. I take full responsibility because I was the one that suggested we eat there. I hope others don't make the same mistake.

Overall, all four of us enjoyed the dining experience. The service was very good except they asked numerous times if we wanted to order before we were ready to order. We wanted to finish our cocktails. It felt like they were pushing us to order.

My family & I have been here multiple times, but we were totally disappointed with our last visit. The meats & service are not what they use to be. Things have changed, seems like its been management & its been for the worse. I will need to rethink my next visit here for a Brazilian steakhouse.

Brought out of town family here for celebration. Unfortunately, not as good as what has been in the past. Two waiters took our drink orders and no one brought the drinks. I had to ask the Manager to bring. Usually when you sit down server brings polenta, friend bananas, mashed potatoes and cheese rolls. We did NOT get any and again, I had to ask the Manager for them. Our plates piled on the table and I got up to bring my family clean plates and had to flag someone down to discard dirty ones. We found it odd that we had to ask for service that is usually done and the restaurant wasn't even crowded. This is a restaurant we go to for special occasions but may need to rethink.

We love Brazilian restaurants and we are very excited to go to this place for the untraditional Thanksgiving dinner because for us it was all about having not turkey on this day. It was packed. We fortunately made reservations a week in advance and it turned out that was a great idea.

The salad bar was good but they did run out of a few things, I guess that it was hard to keep up.

We only had a choice of four meat that kept coming around. I did finally have to ask for the other meat selection. We also had to ask at least four times to three different people to get extra sides we wanted. All in all I WOULD probably go back but I do think I’ve to better Brazilian steakhouses.

We used to live in dallas and enjoyed going there. It was 430pm on thanksgiving so we expected larger crowds. We were sat in back conference room area so noise was less but also much further from salad bar. First thing we noticed was the usual large asparagus was missing during our visit but we did see it replenished later. There was usually nice large mozzarella balls but not today and the tomato slices were iffy. We assume since we were in the back room, we were never offered pork or beef ribs. The waiter told us later we could ask for them but by then we were full. Service was good until our waiter left off his shift. Will definitely go back on a regular night rather than holiday.

We eat at Fogo quite often throughout the year. Service and food are typically outstanding! However, this was our second year eating Thanksgiving Dinner here and it was just meh.... Service was quite spotty, refills were hard to come by and we weren’t exactly sure who was our server? We had at least 5 different people come by in the 2 hours. So getting refills were hard because we would ask one person and then that one would disappear . We also waited over 20 mins to get the check... our table had been completely cleared and still no check. I will definitely eat here again during regular times but unfortunately we won’t be eating another Holiday meal here again.

We walked in behind/seated by someone who was dining there that also worked there and received poor services because of it. Our table was neglected and we received very limited selection of meats. The salad bar was very limited as well, with bits of salami and very minimal filling sides.

Enjoy Fogo experience, food etc... I wish Fogo would do a better job caring for the customers. Opening welcome is very pleasant but tapers off after awhile and the last two visits the waiters are non-existent or you get someone new. Took my daughter for her birthday and she didn't get the birthday experience - had to remind latest waitress it was her birthday. Love the food, just wish Fogo could stay on course with customers all the way through their dinner experience - this would add alot to your reviews.

An impressive selection for just the Market Table (salad bar) for lunch and a great value. A nice selection of cheese and charcuterie, a variety of rice and grain salads and fresh veggies. The Autumn Lentil soup is my new favorite - so flavorful!

I have been here a few times and this was definitely the worst experience I've had. The lead waitress, was very pushy in suggesting menu items as if they were included in the price, when in fact, it was an additional $89 for one particular item. When I inquired about the price and then declined, she kept on insisting that I order it, making me feel less than comfortable. She then offered water to start, thinking it was included in the $55 per person charge (we were a group of 8), we agreed. Later found out the sparkling water was almost $7 a bottle. This went on and on throughout the night. Not to mention the ladies restroom was a mess as if it hadn't been cleaned at all that day. To top it all off, when we got the bill, they over charged us for some drinks and added something we didn't even have. I brought my family here for my son's 21st birthday and was ready to splurge and pay more than we would normally spend for a night out to dinner, but did not feel like the money was worth the experience. The food was good, not great. With all that said, there were some wait staff that we're very attentive and courteous. Don't think it's worth the dinner price, but might go for lunch sometime in the not so near future.

We love Fogo and dined at several locations.. but this visit to this location was a little disappointing. We had to ask several times for the cuts of meat we wanted as only same cut (house special) of meat were repeated offered. They also were out of two white wines we originally ordered from the wine list and they wanted to sell us way more expensive wines as recommended as “similar” wines. May not try this location again in the future.
