Food needed more flavor

I absolutely love dining at Fogo de Chao! I took friends there when I celebrated going from walker to cane. They fashioned a dessert for us to share with CONGRATULATIONS written upon it. Such a nice gesture. If I could afford it, I'd dine there every day. The food is earthy. You don't dare ruin it with salt! Can't wait to return.

We expected more, felt like a Vegas all you can eat, really. Some people there seemingly to take advantage of the all you can eat environment, sadly, which seems perverted these days. The food was good, but as I mentioned.. cruise ship buffet or something. We also saw only a few meats overall, nothing close to what is advertised and no menu for guidance. Would be more enjoyable if there was a dress code and more of a personal service and presentation.

I haven’t been to this location in about a year, and it seems like it maybe going downhill. The tables on the first floor are way too close together, making it difficult to move around to the buffet. The food was good, but the service was not great. It was difficult to get a waiters attention and even once we did, they seemed overwhelmed with the abundance of tables. For the price, the service and ambience need to be greatly improved.

My wife and I do not have much time to get out, especially with a newborn baby. We took a chance to get out and have been talking about it for 2 days now. The food was amazing and the service was fantastic. They were so accommodating and professional, plus they made sure that my wife was happy which made me and the baby happy. Gotta take care of Momma right? Thank you Fogo de Chao D.C.

We love Fogo de Chao. It is expensive for us so we save it for a special occasion and go for lunch but you get your money's worth. The food is wonderful, the service is outstanding.

Seated promptly. The special attention to customer service was very noticeable to me and my wife. Everything was amazing.
