Food was not only exceptionally delicious but the service was super outstanding. Manager asked twice how we were which was great and our waters were always refilled. Not once did we need to get attention from someone for anything because they'd come over to us.
First time coming wasn’t what I expected as far as the food
Definitely going back!! staff nice an friendly an food was GREAT!!
Valentine’s Day was SUPER BUSY, but Fogo de chão de a great job making sure we were taken care of. One of my best experiences at Fogo!
I had a reservation for two at 4:15 pm. Arrived at 4:20 pm. Told hostess the second person would arrive later. Received pager. Very crowded lobby. Finally checked with Hostess to ask why I hadn’t been paged. She told me they were expecting me to first tell them the second person had arrived. That wasn’t mentioned when I received the pager. Was seated within a few minutes after that. When I made the reservation on Open Table, I added a note requesting a quiet table. We were seated at a table next to the kitchen entrance and directly in front of the location where the tableware was stored and the wine rack. When I went upstairs, I noticed it was much quieter and there were numerous vacant tables for two. We had not been offered seating there. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. So, I still plan to return. But, I’ll be more proactive about seating.
Food was great overall. Service was not as great as normal but maybe it was due to how busy the restaurant was. But the food was incredible, as it is consistently.
Great time and excellent food
This place never fails. I live 5 minutes from the Tyson's location. I rather take the drove into the city. That explains everything.
Perfect and exactly what we expected
Went on a Sunday at 11:30am, for brunch. Brunch is about $20 cheaper then dinner. Had all the meat we could eat...chicken, steak, pork, lamb and mignon. Each meat was well seasoned and juicy. Had NO issues with how the meat was prepared...some I got well done and others medium well. Great seats. We were seated between the kitchen and buffet so all the meat coming out hit our table first. Salad and fruit bar had fresh, big beautiful fruit and veggies. For brunch, there is an omelett and waffle station. For dessert, i had them do a waffle, and put ice cream and chocolate syrup on it. soooo good. Worth the price, at least to celebrate an occassion, and i will definitely go again.
First time here, great service, lots of food. Walking distance to Warner. Highly recommend.
Everything tasted wonderful. The service was great. A little expensive if you can’t eat a whole lot, though. I expected the price and was ok paying that for a great meal/experience.
Great place. Come here often and its highly recommendable. Great meat and exellent service.
From the moment we walked in to the very last moment, everything went well. My wife I and celebrated our one year anniversary of marriage with fashion. Thank you to the staff that made our night special.
The buffet was delicious and their choices were so extensive. The service was wonderful and meticulous.
We had a great time out for our anniversary. The food and service was impeccable!
Great place, amazing staff and food. Will keep in kind for future meetings.
The food meat was tasty and the salad bar had so many selections. The waiter was very helpful in making selections. We were celebrating a birthday and they brought a wonderful dessert to share. However, he didn't come back to check on any needs. I had to ask another employee to bring me something and a manager to actually take the money at the end.
Been to this restaurant several times. Very nice to go for a casual dinner
Phenomenal everything but the price was not right. Too expensive. Phenomenal service, quality, and choices!
Amazing!!!!!!!! Just go!
I use Fogo de Chao when I hold welcome interviews with new colleagues. The restaurant never fails to give them a great first DC experience. The food is always excellent, the staff always act like they like working there, and the prices are doable at my pay level. I look forward to every opportunity I get to show this restaurant off.
Great as usual!
It was both me and my wife’s first time and it was a amazing first time experience, we had a problem with the rice being over cooked but the manager immediately addressed the issue and brought out fresh rice which was cooked perfectly and the meats were seasoned perfectly honestly it was a perfect evening and I highly recommended it to my co workers and friends.
Amazing! Staff made our anniversary that much more special! Thanks!!!
Great food and service as always.
This was disappointing. It was so loud I couldn’t hear the person sitting across from me. I had to wait a few minutes for someone to come around with the meat selection each time (this doesn’t happen at any other fogo de chao). There were multiple people that were dressed inappropriately for this type of restaurant. I asked for medium rare and about 75% of the time it was overcooked.
I was with my family and overall it was a great experience. There were times when we had to request certain items multiple times but maybe we weren’t asking the specific person we should’ve been asking. Other than that, I should’ve probably had more fried polenta. Very clean, staff was very polite and the food was delicious.
I loved Fogo. Would frequent this Fogo nearly every other Friday and every other special occasion or just because. I used to know the staff and greeted at the door with smiles and warmth. That’s all gone. I’ve been going to this Fogo for 9 years, 4 of which I have had parties of 20 to 35 people. This will most likely be my last Fogo. Charging people for items and then not explaining and then catching an attitude when someone questions the nearly 1 grand food bill, is beyond me. Service from the actual staff was subpar and I can see why none of the people I have grown fond of are not there. At the end we are told that 27.50 is still owned but can’t be explained. I have dined with this place enough to know this is not the Fogo experience. I was embarrassed.
I always enjoy the food. Unfortunately, this visit the service was very slow.
Always a solid offering when you want to splurge your diet and wallet. Can’t wait to go back next week.
Wonderful service, great food, the entire experience was incredible. I came to celebrate my birthday with my mom. I knew about the Brazilian style service and was looking forward to that, but the service was just outstanding. We were greeted when we walked in, sat immediately and our waiter was there to explain our experience and get our drink orders. Bread was served shortly after, along with polenta and mashed potatoes. One of the managers ensured we were having a great time. The gauchos were so accommodating, my mom really enjoyed the lamb and wanted it rare and they continued to check on her to offer her more. Overall excellent!
Excellent as always and we especially love the Manager and how he always has his team working in harmony and efficiency.
If I’m spending over $100 on a meal for two people, my server shouldn’t roll her eyes and make a nasty face when she thinks we aren’t looking, all because I asked for a new pair of tongs after one fell on the floor. Unbelievably unprofessional.
Amazing prime cuts of lamb! The lunch salad bar is plenty with one meat. Make sure to find the parmigiano reggiano and smoked salmon
We came for a birthday party and the waiters were very accommodating of that
Wonderful time, great food as always.
