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.

Sadly one of the worst dining experiences I’ve had at any Fogo-de-Chao! We went for my birthday & I even put that in my reservation but was never acknowledged. The meats were all so flavorless & TOUGH!! I was so disappointed in the lack of quality or seasoning and the service. The waiters were very unwelcoming & my dinner experience was very unpleasant. I also asked for the restaurant week special because I thought it was AYCE. We were charged the regular price and it was NOT WORTH IT!! Very disappointed & will not come back to this location.

I had a great time, the host and servers were very friendly. I felt that the filet mignon was a little dry, most of the beef cuts were a tad bit under seasoned, but all of the lamb we had especially the lamb chops were definitely the best dish of the night.

I took a colleague to Fogo de Chao two weeks ago, and it was great to be back. Just got a new colleague, so I brought him, as well. I am impressed that the quality of the food and of the service are still superior. Fogo de Chao delivers a wonderful experience. The reason I deducted one star from the Ambience rating is that Washington still hasn't discovered that it's perfectly safe to go out to eat. Get back out there Washingtonians! Your favorite restaurants need you.

Fogo has adapted excellently to the pandemic. The food and service are as great as ever. They have the advantage of having a very large space, so distances between tables and people in general are more than sufficient. Salad bar servings are brought to your table now, and the meats maintain the same (great) system as before

My husband and I are on a fitness plan, so that leaves date nights and eating out very limited. It was great food, the veggies and salads had a crunch to them so they were fresh. There were great drinks and reasonably priced considering the location. The servers always made sure our plates were never empty and checked on us often.
