Outstanding per usual! I love this place. I come at least once a year and I had my wedding reception here in Jan 2012 so it's almost like a tradition to come back every year. I was glad to see they had good practices with the whole COVID situation going on, such as the salad bar where they fix your plates for you and keeping people safe. Also, I love the DC location better than the one in Baltimore simply because they have way better customer service and tableside service!

The food and service was excellent. They also have a great selection of seafood options. My only concern is they need to space the seating better. I don’t believe tables are six feet apart and they are seating all tables. We went early (4:30 pm) and it was still more crowded then I expected.

have no qualms at expressing my displeasure. As usual, my dining experience at Fogo de Chao was on point. The food tasted great, the service was friendly, and the overall experience was awesome. Adding fries to the list of provided warm sides was a nice addition, as the kids loved them!

This is the second time my wife and I have been to this restaurant. It’s been outstanding both times. The service is excellent and the food is even better. We’ve had the same waiter both times and he was exceptional both times. This really made my wife’s birthday special. Thank you

Watched a meat server completely skip every table with african americans. He had several meats we wanted to try. Would look right through us and only stop at tables with non poc. I am really disturbed and will never eat here again!

We booked outdoor dining, but were told upon arrival that they were not serving outside. The food was ok, expensive for a plate of salad bar fare and a few pieces of meat. Good experience, one and done.

Service was solid and friendly but most of the food (including the meat) was lukewarm and did not taste fresh. I’ve been going to Fogo for about 10 years in multiple cities, but I don’t think I’ll be back.

A great, later evening treat. Salad bar is fantastic but you fill up pretty quick. Meat cuts are excellent. Great staff and service. And everything is socially distanced and safe. Very enjoyable.

Staff was fantastic, lobster was awful (let me repeat awful). Think it was cooked, frozen and heated up. Was mealy with freezer burnt taste. Plus very small portion for $40.
Meat parade flavor was a bit lackluster but popover appetizers and chocolate molten cake was fantastic.
Kudos for the Tabboulah!
For 2 people our $300 bill was extremely overpriced.
