Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse - Scottsdale Ratings and Reviews
This is one great place to have a Sunday Brunch. My husband loves their Market Table, and I come for their Lamb Chops. We always have very good service, thanks to Marco, Chris and Carina. They know what we like, and our drinks and Lamb Chops are on the table promptly. It is a joy to come here hungry and leave satiated and feeling cared for. Thank you guys.
We are regulars! This place has great food and service. Marco is amazing as he ensures each table is having an awesome experience. We will continue to celebrate special occasions here with friends and family . Good food and Good service are hard to find and we found it at Fogo De Chao Scottsdale.
I have been to many Brazilian steak houses and unfortunately this was the worst. Overly bright lights, rushed and confused service, compounded with sound so loud you couldn’t hear the person next to you.
Here were my observations
While salad bars are pretty common with Brazilian steak houses, this one was disappointing. Caesar salad was bad. I have seen grocery store salad bars that were better.
We started off with one waiter, then an expediter moved him to a different section and awkwardly tried to transition to another. He was abrasive and not concerned about the customer. We were happy with the original person and communicated as much, but still ended up with someone else. Not good. It felt like buying a set of tires and being switched to a different brand.
The noise level was incredibly loud and the entire place felt like dining in a cafeteria. Banging plates constantly.
Lighting was way too much. Too bright, too cafeteria.
We were constantly asked how is everything. Not once, not twice, but every interaction. It seemed like the manager was trying to keep his job, as this was multiple servers, multiple times
The price. Dear Lord...for the price you pay, you could go to Ruth’s Chris Steak House and get so much better. Way overpriced. Lamb was ok, filet was awful, chicken was dry , and the sausage simply wasn’t very good.
Damage for this experience was over 230 dollars for two people, not including tip. Seriously . For this amount of money, go a few doors down to Paul Martin’s for a nice meal, attentive service and a price far below this tourist trap.
Amazing food! Amazing service! Would go back again. It is expensive, but worth the price. Only negative is they could lose a few tables to make the experiance more enjoyable. Very cramped. You can hear neighbors talk. Not a first date place due to the lack of intimacy.
Went for Thanksgiving. The atmosphere felt kinda like a Scottsdale Golden Corral . Very busy (that could be due to the holiday) bright lighting. Don't expect romantic. The food overall was good. Wonderful selection at the market table (buffet). I guess I was expecting better meat . They really pushed the sirloin. I was interested in the beef ribs (awesome, if you could get it) and the lamb ( asked 4 times and never got the lamb chop), i did have some leg of lamb that my husband and I couldn't t tell if it was lamb it was so mild. The lamb loin at least tasted like lamb, but was overcooked. Parmesan crusted pork was dry as sawdust. Sausage links were good. basically, you have to ask (and ask) for the good stuff. If you have the stamina to wait for the less popular meat and don't stuff yourself on the market table, it could possibly be a good deal. Otherwise get ready to empty your wallet.
Set your expectations accordingly if you visit on Thanksgiving or Christmas day. Staff doesn't want to be there, service is lackluster at very best. I sat at the table after the meal for 30 minutes waiting to get my credit card back. They gave me a 25$ gift card. It was a 300$ bill with the 20% tip because I always make sure the servers are taken care of. Management at this location should pay attention.
This place is excellent if you know how to eat at a churrasco. Skip the salad bar unless there are some specific items that you want like artichoke hearts or olives. Trust me when I tell you the prosciutto and the smoked salmon are not what you think they are... Perhaps a 3 on a 10 point scale. Skip all chicken, dry and not worth what you pay. Go easy on the instant mashed potatoes and the cheesy bread. And keep asking for them to bring you the filet mignon. They will nod their heads and proceed to bring 7 other heavily salted meats but never the filet. Ask again. And again. Until they bring it. And then ask them to bring it again. Yes it's pretty good as is the sirloin.
Skip dessert. Another previously frozen boxed specialty of the house. And beware the $16 mixed drinks and glasses of mediocre wine.
In summary, if you want all-you-can-eat filet and sirloin and are disciplined, it might be worth your trip. Otherwise consider the supermarket.
I love the food everytime i go its a great experience unfortunately not this time service was not good.. i waited for long time for the meats to come . We were celebrating my wifes birthday. Wanted her to feel special i told our server that it was her birthday inknow you do something special for birthdays.. it was disappointing to vet my ticket , they had forgoten us .. it took them 20 minutes more for them to get my debit card .. its was just everything a disaster i paid 140 dollars for a special dinner i wanted my wife to had and it turn out to be a really bad experience !!!!!
Had a great birthday experience celebrating a surprise for my wife, but the wait staff at this particular location barely attended to our table. They sat us at a new table when they discovered my party had joined a few members but barely came back to ask for drink requests, refill water nor ask if any special occasion was being celebrated. I had to inform them towards the end that it was a birthday we were celebrating, for which they suggested the delicious chocolate cake dessert. The food is always amazing here, but for the price, the service level is just not there. I will go back to Fogo de Chao, but probably not to this location.
If you are into bulk eating and you are a dedicated carnivore this is your spot, but you'll pay for it. If price is not a concern, don't bother, otherwise sign up for their emails at the web site. They offer frequent deals and discounts.
The staff is as attentive as you will find anywhere. You will be tempted to fill up at the 'Market Table' (salads, veggies, cured meats and other stuff) but hold back. The attraction here are skewers of grilled meat brought to your table. Keep in mind, since they are not cooked to order you may not get the exact 'doneness' you prefer. Again, the staff is very eager to please, so don't hesitate to request something a little more well done or rare, and if something you want isn't coming around to your table, grab one of the staff and tell them.
High expectaions not met. Less than courteous bartender started birthday celebration, which the hostess noted but no mention by waiter to our honored guest. For the price tag, too many cheap sirloin offerings, only once was ribeye offered, which was not the case at Fogo in Minneapolis or San Diego. Salad bar could be better managed by bringing out fresh bowl of Caesar to replace almost empty, rather than take bowls to leave bare ice. (Restaurant management 101). Had to ask staff from next section to bus our table, as ours basically disappeared. Our out of town guests were gracious but this location didn’t live up to our hype for this special occasion.
I would love to think that our visit to Fogo de Chao was just an off night for the restaurant. The evening started out OK, we ordered drinks in the bar and then were seated promptly. We do give a thumbs up for the specialty cocktails. Our waiter, Phil, introduced himself & explained the process. We served ourselves at the market bar (there were many items - charcuterie, smoked salmon, salads, cheese), it was fine, nothing to shout about. Then, we turned our medallions over to green, showing that we were ready for the meat. After twenty minutes, our question was - "Where's the meat?" We saw no gauchos anywhere. Finally, the gauchos began dribbling out of the kitchen. In several cases the meat was sadly overcooked, and we wanted RARE! There was also a definite odd after taste with the meat selections, this includes the sirloin, filet mignon and the lamb. The one meat item that was a hit was the little sausages. Unfortunately, they only came around one time. The pork was incredibly dry, as were the ribs. Phil, our waiter, pretty much disappeared for the evening. It was an expensive and underwhelming experience.
