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
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!
The overall experience was just ok. Things were sufficient but not great to garner the 60+ dollar fare per patron. Beef ribs which are a consummate favorite didn’t hit the floor and circulate as often as the other meat selections which was a bummer. And the salad bar was not impressive either. Unsure why there seems to be a cult-like following with glowing reviews for it.. there were numbered, minimaI selections and the options are limited in my opinion. It is not an enormous, bountiful and varied selection at all. Also, we were served a drink (scotch) with a cracked glass. Summarily, had it not been for the wonderful FATIMA (management), we would have left not long after being seated. She consistently came by our table, attended to any unpleasantries as quickly as they arose, and did it all with a smile! The three stars are for her and the beef ribs only - not the restaurant. We won’t be back.
All food & service was great. Bar was a little off. One drink too strong and martini seemed weak.
Nice restaurant to try
The experience in the restaurant was great, but the value disclosed by the open table and the value charged in the restaurant are in doubt.
Service was attentive, especially for New Year's morning. However, we were disappointed that there were no holiday specials or special brunch times, just the holiday rate which was higher than usual. The food was great as always, but not likely to return for such an occasion.
Armando is an amazing person and treated us so well. He is an outstanding example of what it means to work at Fogo de Chão! Thanks so much for making my birthday and our New Year spectacular!
New Years Eve
Absolutely amazing quality
Crazy amount of food Don’t eat for a week before you go there!!
Everything prepared amazingly well
$60 pre fox is a bargain
Give yourself 2 to 3 hrs for the feast !
Overall the meat was just okay, on numerous occasions arrived cold. Service was subpar at best. We waited over 30 min just to be able to order a glass of wine.
Love this place. We have been coming to this restaurant for years now. It’s my favorite to indulge in great meats. The salad bar is amazing too!
New Years Eve
Súper!!!! La atención fue fantástica!!
La comida súper!!! Gracias! Feliz 2020!!!!
FDC is always a reliable venue for an event. The food is ok and the service is great. I know the price is right, but it is a little expensive .
TRIPLET NEPHEWS ARE IN TOWN AT THIS WAS PERFECT. A GOOD TIME WAS HAD BY ALL. MY ONLY NEGATIVE COMMENT IS THAT WE WERE ON THE 2ND FLOOR. OTHERWISE ALL WAS WELL.
Enjoyed a great birthday meal tonight. Armando was amazing and took great care of us!
Everyone was willing to help and checked on us several times making sure we had everything we needed or wanted.
So-so food, exorbitant price. Salad bar was an unappetizing mess. 8 of 13 of us could not sleep - food just did not sit well. And we did not overeat. 4 of us ate only salad bar and with 1.5 drink per person, our bill was over $1400 for 13 people.
Christmas night was extremely busy
