    Truly a disappointing brunch. We love Fogo at dinner time but the brunch is sort of a weird mix and breakfast and lunch and not as good as either. The brunch includes the market table which is basically a nice salad bar. You can order an omelette and they have small waffles as well as very tasty bacon but other than that and some fruit it was really a lunch spread with various salads. Other than the cheesy role and some Italian bread there really were no bread options available which would have been more appropriate for a breakfast. What was truly most disappointing was that the meat options that are carved tableside throughout the meals at dinner time are not available for brunch. We had assumed that there would be a more typical Fogo experience at brunch but our assumption was incorrect so be forewarned - if you go to Fogo for the meats - skip their brunch and wait for dinner. For $35 it was still not a bad deal to get an omelette, some waffles and their salad bar but we all left a bit hungry as we thought we would also have access to some meat, chicken, lamb or other similar options. The service was fair at best - drinks never refilled and given that the main protein was omelettes it took a while to order them. The net is that I would skip Fogo for brunch and stick to their strength which is lunch and dinner. Other than bacon and some meat hash it is neither a good brunch (little bread options, no cooked sausage or ham, no potatoes) nor a good lunch (no Brazilian steakhouse meat options).

    THE WORST experience ever! First lets start by the lack of meat! We had 3 served meats of the same meat, asked for lamb chops waited 45 minutes and was later told "sorry it went to a larger table" I feel robbed! For $700 for a table of 7 for barely any service this was highway robbery! This is Not What a Brazilian rodizio is! Save your money, go elsewhere!

    Very disappointed in our experience last night. Meat, Chicken, Salmon all dry. In addition, don’t recommend the full churrasco experience for the money. Full selection of meats not offered. Filet only brought by once and it was the last piece. Requested more but never delivered. Found out afterward by other locals that they had the same poor experience. That said, highly recommend the salad buffet bar for taste and value. Especially for lunch. The whole point of the churrasco experience is to say no more meat, instead for us it’s never again at Fogo de Chao.

    Great and upscale restaurant with the best service we have had. Victor was so nice and always came to our table to make sure we were doing ok and bring us some special meats for us to have. Also, Omar was service oriented and made us feel like special customers, even though we just met, we felt like family. We will definitely come back.

    Service was bad. Server only came once to take our initial drinks, we were so thirsty we ended up ordering a bottle of wine with dessert so we could just serve ourselves. They don’t pay attention to the red/green buttons because they skipped our table - only had 3 cuts of meat, not sure where the rest where but not worth the value of the full experience. The warm sides are only enough to feed 3-4 people, we were a party of 5 and since the server never came back, we didn’t have enough sides for the table. Don’t bother putting notes on the reservation, it was a birthday dinner and they didn’t acknowledge. We were also sat 20 minutes after our reservation. Never again.

    It was our first time at Fogo de Chão to celebrate a birthday. We really liked the atmosphere, the decor, the vibe. The service is very different from what you would get at a regular restaurant meaning that you don’t have a dedicated waiter. This resulted for us as having very poor service and having to grab many different people to repeatedly ask for things. We started with cocktails and these were very disappointing. We had both an alcoholic cocktail- which tasted horrible, and a non alcoholic cocktail which was made with 70% of ice. One you get the ice out, you are basically left with 2 sips to drink. We had the continued meat service at the table along with the buffet. We have to say the buffet was the best part, it was very fresh and very tasty. There was a huge selection and variety of items. It was definitely the highlight of our meal. The meat in the other hand was very disappointing as it was very very salty. We couldn’t taste the meat but only the salt. And finally, we had the chocolate lava cake as birthday dessert and it was disappointing too. It really tasted like a cheap boxed cake that you can find at a supermarket.

    Have been going to Fogos around the US snd always enjoyed. Came here for the opening week snd it was fine. But on this visit we had the worst server. Complaining about too many tables and then completely disappeared for an hour only to reappear. Never brought the promised complimentary dessert and never got the second martini order. Super terrible service overall. Will be going back to Chima or Lasso if management doesn’t reach out.

    Server was over extended. Needed to wait him to take the dessert order and to grab the card/check. We were likely there an extra 30 minutes due to that. Not faulting him, he was stretched across the entire floor. The carvers brought varied meats and regular intervals. The dessert was really good.

    I can say we are sort of Brazilian steakhouse experts with my husband being from Brazil and frequenting Brazilian steakhouses for over 15 years. Chima’s ‘s used to be our favorite until all the good people left. Some of the best people went to open Pampa Gaucho in lighthouse point which is our favorite for the quality of meat and service. We had been to Fogo de Chão in South Beach and Atlanta and found it to be quite good. So we ventured to experience Fort Lauderdale location and were severely disappointed. Pros are the salad bar and the butternut squash soup on the salad bar. The service was the worst we’ve ever had. My husband got up eight times to look for a waiter, to look for the garçon who cut the meat, to request meat that they never brought out even after requesting. For the amount of meat that we were served we should’ve never been charged for and just been charged for the salad bar. It might be a better experience if you order all the cart but overall we will probably not ever go back. It’s quite unfortunate because we usually go to a Brazilian steakhouse at least once a month.

    Beautiful restaurant, friendly service. The salad bar is outstanding. However skimpy with the filet, had to keep asking to have some. They brought the same sirloin and chicken over and over. It’s a high price point to have limited offerings. The meat however was delicious when we finally got it.

    I mistakenly made a reservation for 8, instead of for 9. When we arrived, a gentleman named Omar took care of my party and provided us with superb customer service. Throughout dinner, even though Omar was not our server, he constantly came back to check on our table to ensure that everything was okay. I would 100% come back to this restaurant simply because of the amazing service and respect that Omar provided my family.

    We were very disappointed. We are familiar with Brazilian BBQ and specially familiar with Fogo de Chão - I am Brazilian. This was way below our expectations. We were offered a table for 6 although we have made a reservation for 7 ppl. Instead of adding a chair they moved us to a table on the “limbo”. It took way too long to get someone to take our drink orders and even longer to get the drinks. When we got our drinks one of our guests got the wrong one. The selection of meets was very limited. They advertise valet parking but there was no valet to be found. The server was cordial, polite but a little lost. She definitely need more training. I wanted to get my American family a Brazilian experience but was extremely embarrassed.

    I celebrated my birthday yesterday at Fogo de Chão Ft Lauderdale, and the overall experience was extremely disappointing. First, upon entry, the host/hostess was not welcoming at all. As members of the party arrived, the hostess did not even care to show their guests to their table. They simply stated its in the private room, and the guests were left to find it n their own. There was a total lack of interest and pride in their work. Next, the entire dinning experience was terrible. In fact, a waste of money. The server was just ok. As a party of 11, we would have expected a little more “attentiveness” from him. Patrons had to go to the bar to order drinks because he was largely absent, or just forgot to take drink orders and refills from half the guests. The gauchos were even worse. They brought mostly chicken and pork…we had to ask where the beef was after numerous rounds of them bringing chicken, chicken, and more chicken. Also, they completely forgot to bring almost half of the meat menu. We missed out of several cuts of meat that were advertised in the menu. Not only did they forgot to bring out half of the section, when they arrived at the table, they would forget to serve half the table despite the green chips clearly flipped up. The meat was flavorless, unsalted, and over cooked. Lastly, the gauchos just stopped coming. After 30 minutes or so, the server started clearing plates. I guess we were done? Not really, but I guess the restaurant decided that one for us. It comes as a great regret to have celebrated my birthday at this restaurant. I wanted to try something new. Please save your money, and take your business down the street to Chima’s. Maybe Fogo should take some notes from the competition down the road.

    It’s a decent restaurant but the quality and choices of meats are not many. And for the side items the bananas/plantains were way too soft, almost like a purée. I’ve dined at Chima and Fogo in Coral Gables and the quality was much better

    Pretty terrible. A bunch of staff didn’t show up so we tried to be understanding, but they handled it so poorly. We had a 530 res and weren’t even able to find a hostess to check in until 5:50, and we were seated around 6:10. There were no apologies, no gestures like money off the bill / comp’d appetizer…literally anything for the 40 min delay in being seated with a reservation. We were at a table in the corner and had to ask our waiter to remind the meat servers that we were there because they never came to our table (which is the whole experience for the restaurant).

    We researched the menu before making our reservations. We aren’t big eaters so we didn’t want the all you can eat selections. They did have other plates on the menu that weren’t quite as large portions. We asked about these only to be told they didn’t offer them on holidays. We ordered an appetizer and the salad bar. Both were underwhelming. We will not be returning.
