    The food was delicious, the setting was beautiful with the warm lighting and decor, the service we had was pretty horrible, though. Definitely took away from the whole experience. Our server started out by saying "I'm supposed to have someone helping me but he doesn't seem to want to help with smaller tables" When it has been a while we were waiting for drinks and starters she came over and said "you don't have your drinks? Why didn't you come get me? (...Excuse me? Lol) While I understand they may have been short staffed- we had to recruit someone else to help us as our original server didn't seem to want to serve us throughout the 2 1/2 hours we were there. Would still go back in hopes of better service.

    Birthday celebration was a success. Food was great. Steaks, lambs, chicken, etc all tasted great. My only issue was the service. With the price you paid - $100+ per person - I expect awesome service. Great food isn't enough. Ordered cocktails at the beginning of the meal, but got them 30 min into the meal. Ordered another round, but that was delayed by 20 min. Greeted by the server at the beginning, and said that some of us had never been. The server actually lamented that she had to do her speech. Sorry to bother you.... There were several meat guys that would just show up at the table, slam down the meat, and stare at us if we wanted "it." Had to draw out of them what was the cut of meat. They had no enthusiasm. Sausage guy was the worst. Maybe because he had to carry around meat no one wanted. And for the most part, they didn't come around too frequently. A couple of meat guys were engaging, but for the price, all of them need to be professional. And no one came and bussed the table until we were at the end. Small issue. I liked it. I would probably go to another location - but not El Segundo.

    We wanted to return to this Fogo and give it a second chance from an earlier ho-hum visit. And we were thrilled that dining at this location improved so much. We love the downtown location and had wanted a Fogos closer on the westside. The staff was A+ friendly bringing around more delicious meat choices non-stop. The manager was a sweetheart and friendly. Their buffet is an amazing variety of salads, cheeses, meats, and side dishes more than we can count. I do recommend going with their house Malbec red wine by the glass which is better than most mid level brand reds. All in all, top honors and we will be back soon.

    Great experience parents loved it. At times the meat took long periods of time to come out and sometimes and sometimes it was on the more well done side but overall great experience.

    Lunch experience at 1:30 was mediocre. The service wasn’t all that great if I’m being honest, our waiter came over three times while we were there. 1 to take our drinks 2 to give us our drinks 3 to give us the check. Would have been nice to have someone check on us since we waited for the check for 20 min cause no one was coming by. Not to mention refills would have been nice and napkins, but how would they know they never came by. The amount of meat offered was also disappointing. They came back 3 times and shut down after those 3 times. We wanted more meat but we waited, and waited, and waited WITH OUR GREEN button mind you, and no one came. So we just waited the additional 20 min until our waiter realized we existed and brought the check

    The service was not good last night. The meat servers were fine but the rest of the wait staff never came to check on us or forgot to give us our appetizers. I have frequent other locations and they always had excellent service. I’m afraid I’ll hesitate coming back to this location.

    For starters. Our reservation was at 10. We arrived and checked in about 20 minutes before 10 and were not seated until after 1130 which is ridiculous considering we made a reservation to avoid the latter. Our food took over 40 minutes to be brought to us which I would have been okay with had I been provided with constant drinks while we waited but our waiter shined with his absence. When I finally managed to get a hold of him to request a second drink. He informed me that bar was now close and could only offer me with beverages from the kitchen. Did it ever occur you guys to notify consumers of last call for the bar or at the very least check up on how things are going. Definitely a memorable experience but for all the wrong reasons. Please do better!

    Was waiting outside over an hour AFTER reservation time (it was Valentine's day so it was busy but....) While waiting outside it was cold and not 1 of their heaters worked. Once seated ot took forever to get a waitress and a glass of water. Something happened with my card and was nolonger at the table (idk if it was stuck to the bottom of the meat pan or what) a couple of times I wanted meat but the guy zoomed by too quick before I could get his attention. Once we did get a waitress she was awesome. The food was good.

    Went on Valentine’s Day but wasn’t expecting the wait to be as long as it was.. reservation was at 9:30 didn’t get seated until 10:10 - by luck because a lot of people left .. purchased the full experience for $67 but wasn’t pleased by the “salad bar” the fruit was alright and as far as the meats they were bringing out everything wasn’t cooked to my liking .. (too much blood) I requested to have my meats cooked medium well and no one came back to my table for over 20 minutes.. I paid 67$ to try 4 out of the 16 meat choices and that was only because I took meat that wasn’t to my liking Seasoning was alright but it depended on where u grabbed your meat from .. Servers weren’t coming to my table especially not my server that was originally helping us being there for over an hour my waiter came 3 times never came back to take our drink order or anything.. 1.5-2/5 rating. Wouldn’t be coming back

    We never had a set waitor. We were never served our meat. If I could give a zero I would. I saw the meats were not being cooked to my liking so I order the speciality select cuts. Took a waiter 25 mins just to bring us water after the hostess had us wait 35 mins due to them being behind schedule. That’s a whole hour of no food/beverage for a person with a reservation. They came around with little bread that everybody was touching while we waited for our table. They finally brought us our complementary appetizer after asking the fourth waiter where is it. We ordered our food soon as we sat down. It took an additional 35 mins and after getting ready to walk out the door, the table side meat comes. At this point we had enough and did not want to stay any longer in this Valentine’s Day restaurant disaster. We never knew who our waiter was. We have to stop random waitresses to get service on the smallest things. The salad bar was basic and unsatisfactory. Going here with/without a reservation means nothing. The service was comical to be called a restaurant.

    We went on Valentines day so we expected a bit of a delay, but our reservation was pushed back almost an hour. Once we were seated, we were off to the side of the restaurant on an outdoor patio, pretty much forgotten, and the meat only came by MAYBE 4 times.

    I made reservations for Valentine’s Day almost 2 weeks prior to the actual date of valentine's. I arrive 10 minutes early to my reservation just to be told they are backed up by 35 minutes I have already valeted the car and cannot request to retrieve it back to sit in it. It’s 50 degrees in Southern California I’m in a dress with limited options to turn to last minute given it’s Valentine’s Day so I essentially am stuck with the option to just wait it out so no money is wasted or time driving here. I was not told prior that check in would be this long, or that something I made reservations for 2 weeks ago would still have me sitting here forced to wait around for 35+. What a way to remember a anniversary with my loved one the irony we never do reservations in time we do it ahead of time and still are stuck waiting. UPDATE reservation was for 8:30 I wasn’t seated till 9:30. We sat no one tended to us for 30 minutes. When someone finally came over, instead of asking us did we need anything she starts putting food on the table we didn’t order and we tell her we didn’t even get water we had to ASK for it. No server introduced themselves to us after we got one glass of water and our first round of drinks no server came still to check on us or ask us did we want to order anything else for over a HOUR. The worst service I get it was busy due to Valentine’s Day which I excused for waiting that long for my table but with the service I also received was outrageous never dining here again save your money if you want to be treated like a ghost. Shout out to the young African American gentleman with the braids and glasses who came whenever we flagged him down in between him waiting his tables

    I got to the restaurant 10 minutes earlier than my reservation. when I got there, there was a huge line at the door to get in and talk to the hostess. People kept cutting and going up to her, but she still would sign them in before everyone else in line. We finally got up the front 15 minutes later and she told us they were running behind and it would be an extra 35 minutes past our appointment time before we could be seated. There were over 20 other couples waiting as well and absolutely no seating or anywhere to wait because it was so busy. We ended up waiting outside in the cold for a little and then in the car, but went somewhere else to eat because we were tired of waiting. We ended up getting a text over an hour later that our table was “ready”. Not sure if this place is worth it tbh. Also when we left it didn’t look like anyone had food on their plate at all, so I’m glad we left😬

    Despite reservation for 7:15 had to wait about 30minutes extra before we were seated. As expected busy during Valentine’s Day but it seems like the quality of certain food items was lacking and getting service took awhile, but again it was busy Meat offerings were excellent though.

    2nd time giving this restaurant a chance. Thought maybe a different location would be yield different results. Nope. Same BS. Food, drinks and salad bar are just okay. I see the appeal for some. It’s an upscale all you can eat buffet. Try it out if you’re super hungry, but you risk getting treated like trash by some employees.

    We did not enjoy our experience at all. Upon arrival no one greeted us. I had to walk up to the counter to check in. Once we got seated, I asked for the overhead heater to be turned down, which did not happen. Throughout the time we were eating, they filled up our water once and that was when we were finished eating. I understand they were busy but that is poor service, water should be a thing that comes around every so often. We waited almost an hour for our check and after the waiter said good night, I went to the front counter and they sent me back to the waitress to pay the bill, once I was paying with another waiter, our waiter ran up and said “that’s her!” She thought I left without paying. We went to celebrate my moms birthday and they said they would bring her a complimentary cake and they did not bring anything at all. It was a poor experience! I will not be coming to this location ever!

    The food is okay, but our server disappeared and we never saw her again. Other servers were kind enough to help us out, but still it was an inconvenience. As soon as we walked into the restaurant we perceived a bad odor (like the tables were cleaned with dirty or smelly rags). Also, It is a very noisy place, so if u want to have a conversation with the people at your table you will have a difficult time.

    Waited 20 min after reservation time to be seated. Salad/Charcuterie bar lacked items. Staff was great, came by with every cut of meat regularly.

    Food was excellent! Service was horrible. We were at an inner table and sat for 20 minutes and I had to speak with a manager before any meat carver came around . Then it was another lengthy wait for dessert, and a third lengthy wait for the check. A 2 1/2 hour pricey experience. The manager was apologetic and took measures to correct issues. We will give it another try. Not the experience we were hoping for on our first visit to celebrate a birthday.

    Was very disappointed in the fact I had a reservation at 10pm and once we got there they refused to sit us because of the rain without calling and letting us know.

    Meat was cooked perfectly but it came out slow and not often enough. It seemed the evening was understaffed.

Each cut was perfectly seasoned and cooked to perfection, showcasing the rich flavors and tenderness that Fogo de Chao is renowned for. The selection was extensive, ranging from the mouthwatering picanha to the tender filet mignon, ensuring that every meat lover's cravings were more than satisfied. The salad bar was a vibrant and bountiful display of fresh vegetables, cheeses, charcuterie, and more. It was a perfect complement to the meats, offering a variety of flavors and textures that elevated the entire dining experience.

    We were sadly underwhelmed with our recent experience at this location. I've been a Fogo diner at the Beverly Hills location for many years. The standard that has been set in BH, sadly, did not make it to the El Segundo location. We had a reservation for 5 on a Saturday night to celebrate my daughter's 14th birthday. We arrive to a full, very lively dining room. Upon check in (10 min before our reservation time,) we were told it would be 15-20 minutes before our table would be ready. No problem. It's Saturday. It's a busy dining evening. The adults went to the bar and grabbed cocktails while we waited. 30 minutes later, we were taken to our table, which was nestled in the corner of the patio. Fortunately, the heaters were on - it was cold, windy and the rain was just starting. Our server was friendly and attentive. She took our drink orders, and we began our experience. The patio was filled with a few large 8+ guest tables, which decimated the gauchos' skewers. Unfortunately for us, that left us with few visits to our lonely corner for meat. Any time a gaucho would come by, we would ask for them to please send certain cuts our way. We were still looked over. While we did have a couple of different cuts brought over to us, it seemed that the majority of gauchos who stopped by our table were offering picanha, sausage and lamb. We were only offered garlic steak and filet twice, despite asking for those cuts multiple times. Halfway through our meal, our server disappeared so drinks and sides were not replenished. The floor manager stopped by to check on us and we asked for filet and garlic steak. She said she would send them over, and we also ordered drink refills - both requests took 15 minutes to arrive. By the time our server resurfaced, we were done with the meal and were ready to settle. Overall disappointed with the level of service in El Segundo. On a $600+ tab, I expect a higher level of attention than what was given. Please raise the service bar!!

    Quality food and atmosphere! Only criticism we would say is that it took a longer time for servers to return to us when we had questions or needed the bill. Otherwise, a lovely experience! Always a good time at Fogo de Chão. Thanks!
