Fogo de Chão is a leading Brazilian steakhouse, or churrascaria, which has specialized in fire-roasting high-quality meats since 1979 utilizing the centuries-old Southern Brazilian cooking technique of churrasco. Fogo offers guests a wide variety of simply seasoned meats, that are carefully fire-roasted to expose their natural flavors, including the house specialty picanha sirloin, filet mignon, ribeye, and lamb chops to name a few. Additionally, Fogo offers a gourmet Market Table & Feijoada Bar, which includes seasonal salads, soup, fresh vegetables, feijoada (traditional black bean stew with rice, fresh orange and yuca flour), and much more. Southern Brazilian side dishes such as pão de queijo (warm cheese bread), crispy hot polenta, and caramelized bananas are served family style. To further complement the dining experience, the restaurant offers an award-winning wine list, creative and classic cocktails, and a tempting dessert menu.

The service is generally impeccable; however, the service from drinks, rolls, etc. was hard to get required lots of requests, highly unusual.

We waited for over 30 mins for our reservation. When we were sat ..... we sat there for about 10 mins before someone came over. She said “has anyone been by yet?” We said no, she said we will be back in a few. It took her a bit to come back for the wine order. Then during dinner the bacon wrapped filet only came by 1 time, it was literally almost raw. I will eat rare but my wife was discussed at it. We asked one of the servers for another one, he said ok. We never got it. I asked for the bacon filet or the bacon wrapped chicken the guy came by the second time, was out of filet and we got the last two. I also asked for more sausage which also never came. Bottom Serloin came by about 20 times. Was really disappointed with the entire experience. It’s been awhile since we have been, don’t know if we will come back.

Great food and service!!! Management was very good about making sure that the staff kept a variety if meats coming around and kept a close eye on the market table to make sure nothing was ever empty. We never had to ask for anything because the wait staff stayed on top of it!! Everyone was super friendly and accommodating.

We were celebrating our anniversary and they even gave us a complimentary dessert to celebrate.

Loved it!! We will definitely be back!

Food was not up to par
They waited 1 hour before bringing the tenderloin and we asked repeatedly. Instead they kept giving us $5 sirloin that was overdone

They have gone downhill
Not worth $60

Our visit overall was good with exception to the service at the beginning of the evening. We were not able t get plates cleared, could not get a wine ordered in a timely manner, were not able to get sides refreshed as they were depleted, etc. The good news is that I think the team realized what was happening (and realized my husband's growing ire) and things improved throughout the evening. The food was good, once we finally got wine it was a great choice and the cocktails this visit were exceptional. A bumpy start to the evening, but all worked out in the end.

Waitress was very inattentive, she hardly went to ask if we needed anything, meat was not being offered as much, at one point we were there sitting for about 7-10 minutes without anyone going to ask if we needed anything else. There was not even a lot of people and the waitress kept running around like if she was super busy , this was the first time visiting this location and we won’t be going back, we will definitely stick to Addison location their service is always 100 on point.

Food was fantastic as was the wait staff. It is a pricey place to eat! Over $200 for 3 with a drink and desert added. The biggest negative was the parking-horrible.

Everything was exceptional with our experience. The only complaint I have is that they accept an 8:45P reservation and they close at 9:00P. We still received good service and were given a warning that the salad bar was about to close, allowing for a final opportunity to make a few quick selections. We however were not afforded the same courtesy about the bar closing. No one ever informed us of a final opportunity to order another round of alcoholic drinks and when we attempted to do so, the staff told us that the bar had closed and bartender had left for the night. It just would have been an added plus to the evening .

Fogo de Chao is my favorite churrascaria in Dallas, and I've been to almost all of them. The service is outstanding, and the variety and quality of meats are delicious.

We ate here on Christmas Eve. The meat was overcooked. We had to ask numerous times to have the meat brought to us. It was very disappointing considering the cost of dinner. I have been to other restaurants similar to this and never received poor service, meat would be brought as soon as you turned over your card. Highly suggest trying a different Brazilian Steakhouse. I will say we had one server (female), who finally realized our waiter had deserted us, and she tried to make sure we were taken care of.

The service was terrible, I live in uptown and frequent restaurant often and I must state this was poor service. My daughters were here from Washington DC (lawyer) and Houston ( architect) and both agreed. It took over 40 minutes to get our drinks, we kept getting looked over for meat/cheese.

Awesome Christmas Dinner! However, I wish they had included a free dessert like Texas De Brasil has on Christmas Eve. After waiting a very long time for the lamb chops to come around they were overcooked and had a “gamey” taste. Overall a good dinner with a few disappointments.

Upon arrival, we were greeted by a friendly hostess who was able to quickly find our reservation and soon get us seated. The food was great including the salad from the self service salad bar. We chose a house selection Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio which were also excellent. Finally, for dessert, we chose the cheesecake which was the perfect conclusion to a great meal.

I’d like to start by saying this is my favorite restaurant. Service was awful. Could hear wait staff complaining behind us. Told us there were no cheese balls left after 15 minutes of being there. Been there a thousand times, by far the worst experience. Got maybe 6 meats brought to the table. Asked continuously for ones I wanted and was ignored. Food was good if it ever was actually brought to me. Not in a hurry to go back. Cannot believe I payed $130 for that meal.

It was crowded, the beef was tough, the chicken and sausage were pretty good

Even though I had a reservation, there was a wait. After dinner, I had to locate someone to pay the check.

My experiences in the past were excellent but this time the atmosphere was chaotic

The people were nice and the food ok. But it seems like you had to work really hard to find somebody to bring you the better cuts of meat. For example we had to ask repeatedly before someone came over with the filet. As well, the other than the top and bottom sirloin , the beef cuts were dry and low on flavor. Lamb was good.

Overall disappointing experience. Their main competitor, Texas de Brazil has far better food and service.

We had a party of 10 so we were seated in a back room. It was very quiet and easy to have conversation even at the other end of the table. The staff took excellent care of us and were so attentive. Thanks for a great dining experience. We will be back!

Terrible service. It was a nightmare trying to get our waiter’s attention. As well, the people circling our table with the meats would not come often, at all. During our entire 90 minutes there, we probably had 6 or 7 meats brought to our table in total. Will not be returning.

I came here for my birthday and had a great time! The food was good but what stood out to me was the service. The waiters and waitresses were very prompt and diligent and we’re constantly refilling drinks cleaning plates and asking if there was anything else I needed or if there was a particular cut of meat I would like to have brought to the table which they would make sure would happen promptly. At the end of the night they also brought me a complementary crème brûlée that said happy birthday that no one had even had to ask for. Overall a great time!
