We went to Fogo Uptown for our anniversary. Food was good, to be expected, however the wait staff was not to the quality of the restaurant, and neither was the host staff. We made reservations for 7:30, we got there at 7:25, the hostess was on the phone which is fine, but she did not signal us to hold on or just one moment or even acknowledge our presence in any way. Once she did get off the phone she was unable to find our reservation, but once she did she explained the table wasn’t ready. Ok, fine. She gave us a table at pager and we proceeded to wait 20 minutes until our table was ready.....not a good start.

This ended up being the theme for the entire evening.

I eat in Fogo De Chai’s all over the US. I was disappointed in the service considering we came in early and was one of a few tables.

The other Dallas locations were much better and like so many I visit including the WASHINGTON DC location that I eat in once a week.

Drinks, sauces, meat types, etc.... just took forever to arrive after asking several times.

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.
