I had an pleasant experience even with the Covid-19 outside dinning restrictions. The management and staff made sure I was comfortable with consistently checking in to see how things was going and able to provide immediate assistance for the small things. I really did enjoy myself, and I do like the salad bar being bought to the table idea.

No comment. Please take your funds elsewhere. They will force you to get the experience which is very expensive. If this is a 5-star restaurant I should have options not be forced to eat 13 meats that I won't finish. Also, they are not offering Valet parking which they list on their website so you have to walk 2-3 blocks away to park your car in 20-30 degree wrea

Due to Covid we had to eat outside in a tent type environment. It was so cold. For a Christmas lunch/dinner you want to go to this restaurant on normal terms, not in a tent in the freezing cold. The heater worked but it was either burning you or you froze. They should get more heater lamps instead of blowing air like a military tent. Other than being outside in the cold everything was great. Great food and staff.

Food was great. Service was subpar. I’ve definitely received better service from restaurants that are not of this caliber.

We apologize for delivering subpar service, Chick, as this should never be the case. We're disheartened we delivered anything less, and we hope you don't allow this to keep you away.

Good place for celebration. The experience will cost you about 61 dollars per person, it’s all u can eat salad bar and meats. The waiters will come to your table offering different types of meat. The grilled cheese and lamb was good. Service is on point

What an exquisite dinner experience every time we dine in here at DC locations. This is one of our favorites restaurants in the city that we always try to dine in every few months. The service was very impeccable, all the staff always making sure we are having a wonderful time and get whatever we need. Can’t thank you enough for everything every one provided for us, this place have a great team and we cant wait to re visit this location again. What an outstanding time we had when we had dinner one day after thanksgiving day. Great laugh with great people, great food, great wines, great staff, everything was phenomenal. Thank You so much!!

Each Thanksgiving, my wife and I dine out. This year, Fogo de Chao far exceeded our expectations. The full churrasco experience is always amazing but the Thanksgiving touches to many dishes were also exceptional. We enjoyed the Trilogy Wine Flight, which is a treat and must-do. The experience that really had us talking long after dinner was our amazing waiter, Ermias-Alem. He was courteous, professional, friendly and patient. Ermias-Alem is the number one reason why we will make Fogo a routine dining experience moving forward.

Awesome food service. Everything taste amazing; all the meats were well seasoned and the salad bar attendant was so friendly. The manager was very nice; came to greet us and the birthday dessert was on the house. It is not cheap but a great value for a special celebration. I left very full.
