We came for a birthday party and the waiters were very accommodating of that
Wonderful time, great food as always.
From the time we walked in the staff was attentive and catered to us. We had a great time.
It was date night for my husband and me. We rarely get out without our sons and the grandson. I had a really good meal. The Wagyu was cooked to perfection. The service team was attentive and so was the manager who stopped by serveral times to make sure our meal was going well. The Market Place bar was fresh and stock as usual. We will always want to return on special occassions as well as a good casual meal.
We love Fogo and will always eat there, but I guess during restaurant week the Meats disappear. We had a nice table away from the kitchen and the Gauchos could never make it over to our side of the room. After pointing that out to the wait staff, The meats started showing up and then the dinner was on! As always the food is spectacular and delicious and the staff on point. Everyone should try them at least once and after the first time, will always come back for more.
Thank you Fogo de Chao, see you soon.
It was great
Amazing. I went for restaurant week and the service was exceptional; however, I’ve been on a regular day and felt like servers were more attentive + there were more options available.
Customer service was great. The food was okay.
Hi recommend, but meat service was slow and not consistent.
Food was excellent. Goat was a little gamey but aside from that all the meat I had was excellent. Service was amazing as they were very attentive making sure our waters were always topped off and that we had anything we needed or asked for. Would definitely go ahead. Valet parking is $10/hr which is very reasonable and well worth not walking or trying to find parking.
Our waitress service was very good, she was making sure everything was good with our table.
Great food, exemplary customer service with very friendly staff!
It was amazing! The food on my plate was never ending: servers and staff were extremely attentive, polite, and professional. The meat had INCREDIBLE quality. Will come back again.
Why would I recommend a place that serves rather bland tasting only OK meats, instant mashed potatoes, and a run of the mill salad bar? The options available for various cuts of meat is nice but the execution is lacking in quality and taste. The service was the only thing to shine. Even the deserts were just OK.
We ate here after hearing about it from a co-worker and were curious. For a similar experience try dining on a second rate cruise ship. That was the vibe. Check it off the list - no need to ever visit again.
Excellent service. We never had to wait for anything.
Fogo de chão is always a go to and you will never walk out of there disappointed or hungry. Service is amazing and they’re often checking on you to make sure your needs are being met. Staff is friendly and courteous and I need to give a shout out to Gilson, the manager. He always make my experience even better by ensuring everything is going perfectly! He is polite and so efficient with any additional requests you may have. I can’t say enough good things about this place and the scrumptious food!!
Top spot....................................................................Top Top..........
Be prepared for a boisterous environment at lunch. Plus, the tables are practically on top of one another that servers have to squeeze in between restaurant patrons.
Great customer service. Food was great. Amazing value. Came for restaurant week. Very satisfied.
Pretty crowded but to be expected during Restaurant Week. Every other aspect was excellent, per usual.
It was great
Fogo is Awesome! Always an amazing meal but really a great value during Restaurant Week or when they have the $39 special and especially on Wednesdays when South American wines are 50% off by the bottle!
Great food, great service, wonderful dining experience.
Great place! The service staff were so professional and a delight especially for a busy night
The food and service were outstanding. We were seated promptly. Drinks arrived quite quick and were excellent. Would definitely return the next time I am in town.
The food and service were phenomenal! Absolutely loved everything from start to finish and will definitely go back!
Waiter spilled chicken all over my boyfriends jacket/ pants and miscommunicated what he would do to handle the situation.
Buffet options were wide ranging and impressively prepared. The wide range of meats were delicious, prepared excellently. The service attended to each and every one of our requests in a timely fashion. We left stuffed, but very happily so.
some meats were very hard like the picanha.
I come to this location monthly and normally my experience is stellar. However, yesterday my friend and I had a lunch date at the restaurant at 12:00. We showed up for our reservation and was seated immediately. We both got the full experience, however our server didn’t offer us the sides that are included with the meal until 40 minutes into our food service. We were eating and asked several times were we finished yet, as if they wanted us to get up and leave. Finally when we were done, they took our plates and the waiter brought the bill over. Never offered any dessert options like normal. He also didn’t offer any after meal beverages. So I had to ask another server and they brought my tea. Upon giving him the money for the bill, I told him to keep the change and he walked away without saying a word. He didn’t thank us (not for the tip or dining with them) or give us any farewell of any kind. I will never come back to this location. I will have to make the hike to Bethesda.
I am disabled. Your restraint is not easy to access.
Outstanding food and service. Would highly recommend and would visit again!
Excellent service. Yummy meats. Amazing salad bar.
Often skipped over with meat selections for other tables.
Best rack lamb ever ! 🔝👍🏻
Always a good time. Never rushed and the staff is always looking to please.
Beautiful place to take my date, with wonderful service. Will definitely be returning for seconds and more!
