We ate outside in the tented area, and we were the only ones in the tent. It was wonderful! The restaurant was busy, but we felt safer outside. The tent was comfortable, quiet and our server Yvonne was a delight. We’ll be back.

Made reservations for 2 via Open Table for 5:30 on Sat. Jan. 2. We were a bit early and were seated within 5 mins of our arrival. Both the food and service were very good and we had a very good experience.

I have to give a fully negative rating to Fogo de Chao because I cannot give any positive marks to a restaurant that breaks the law. Serving alcohol after 10pm is illegal right now because doing so spreads the COVID19 virus. Fogo de Chao management tells its waiters to serve alcohol after 10pm even though they know it is in violation of State law. I am sure this will make some customers happy but not the ones who obey the law and understand that disobeying it will lead to sickness and possibly death to a few of its customers. The apparent greed of the owners and disregard for science makes this a restaurant that I hope will be forced to shut down until the pandemic is over. If you respect science and understand the gravity of the COVID19 crisis, do not go to this restaurant.

We had a great experience at Fogo to close out 2020 with delicious food and drinks. I am not one to go out on holidays and peak ‘special events’ days, but the end of this year warranted a nice celebration. And the staff at Fogo did not disappoint! Everyone was extremely pleasant though they were clearly very busy. The managers Mary Jane and Celiandro checked in with us and were very welcoming; the servers got us all we asked for and made sure things were going well frequently - ah, and Bruno made some exceptional caipirinhas! As for the food... there are no words to describe the work and love that goes into making each item on the buffet or grill. The Gauchos are incredibly nice and respectful and everything we tasted took me right back to Brazil on a day when I wished I could be there the most! Fogo de Chão is always a 5 star in my books and the Tysons location has a special place in my heart! We appreciate the Fogo team for all their hard work and dedication making us feel at home on New Years Eve!

My good friend had never been and we wanted to do something nice to end the year right. He loved it. We had a great time and SO SO Full! Customer Service - A+. I also want to add that I don't think but I got to have a V-Mojito. Amazing.

We came here to celebrate a birthday and even witnessed an engagement! The food was delicious! The service was prompt! We loved the restaurant setting and ambiance. Bryan S. came by our table a couple times to make sure we were taken care of and provided excellent service. Overall, this has been one of the best experiences I’ve had since coming to Fogo de Chao!!

My husband really enjoyed the food, but I came to the realization that I am not a big fan of Brazilian steakhouse after dining here, but still have a great review because of the waitress. She was absolutely amazing! She made us laugh and smile, and we also shared that our “special occasion” was just being on a date night after not having one in so long because of Covid and also not having childcare. She brought out our dessert and wrote date night, making it feel extra special even though it was just a few hours away from our kids for dinner. The dessert, sides, and appetizers were all really good, but again I myself realized during the night that I just didn’t love the concept of Brazilian steakhouse so didn’t enjoy the meats as much as I would have elsewhere.

This was our first visit to this location. Our server, who directed us to the app version of the menu, pointed out that he was "there all the time" and knew the menu by heart. On his next stop at the table when drinks had not arrived he said "it was his first day". He then proceeded to try to upsell every add-on to the menu from the apps to the most expensive wine to the table-side prepared meats. The meat that made the rounds was a lot of sirloin. Rarely did you see the others. Even though we get the concept that all servers take care of all the guests. The first server literally disappeared from the floor and never said a word. Other servers did pick up the slack and did a better job. There was also inconsistency with drinks. The second time we ordered a round the second drink looked nothing like the first drink of the same name. There seems to be an issue with consistency, service and an over emphasis on upselling. There are other Brazilian steakhouses that do a better job with the concept.

Another fantastic meal at Fogo de Chao. The food was as delicious as it has always been. But they are limiting capacity due to the coronavirus (which is a good thing). And all of the servers who bring the meats were wearing masks and gloves (which is a good thing).

Service started out rough and bad table that was super wobbly until we asked to move. Experience improved when a manager began helping us. Had to ask for a wine menu after 20 minutes of waiting.

Everything was perfect considering the COVID-19 times we find ourselves in. The only complaint I have is with the hostess. When you are wearing a mask you have to speak up if you want people to hear you. I think it is still better than the one in DC and worth the drive to it. We will be back again, I'm sure!
