    Overall it was a good experience not great. We did the full experience since it was our first time and I have to say we were really disappointed with the meat service. We were there for about an hour and hardly got served any meat. We filled up on the salad bar and towards the end of dinner after we mentioned to our server that we weren’t being offer much meat all of a sudden the service we should have received all along started happening. However, by that time we were already full from the salad bar. There was so many cuts we weren’t offered or too full to even try once we were eventually offered. I probably would never go back to be honest. But the meat that I did try was delicious.

    This is a splurge for our family. We enjoyed the salad bar and the meats, although they were too salty for a few of us. We read the other reviews about the meat not coming fast enough to the table. We were satisfied with the selection and speed of service until we were trying to pay. We had to ask another server to bring us our check because our server was MIA for 15 minutes. Other than that, it was a nice but expensive experience. $350 for party of 5

    - Reservation was for 7pm. Didn’t sit until 8pm. - Asked for tap water and waitress said they only do bottled. 20 minutes later a different waiter had tap for his tables. Asked the waitress what that is and she had to back track. I think it’s a lack of training, not her fault directly. - Service was poor only was able to get 1 drink because everything was slow - steaks were great, but there was 20minuted where nobody was walking around with meat to get. - It’s sad because the ambiance and location is really nice but I’d still recommend Chima Steakhouse 2 miles away over this place due to the service.

    The food and drinks were delicious. When we sat down the waitress came over immediately to get our drink order, asked if we wanted sparkling water and I said no thank you but we were charged for 2 bottles of the Sparkling water which I did not order and will make sure if we go back that won't happen again. As for the food all was delicious but they bring around the sirloin steak- Salty, Lamb- Very Salty, chicken didn't have, and pork didn't have either, quite often. I had to ask the servers twice for the Filet mignon and Rib-Eye Steak they finally brought it over but at that point I was pretty full from the salad bar and Sirloin and lamb.

    Not sure of the table arrangement was altered for Valentine’s Day but seating felt cramped. Lot of traffic between close tables by staff and patrons traveling to and from salad bar. This meant being repeatedly bumped into. Since this style of dinning requires extra staff (wait staff and gauchos) the crowded isles and people looming around your table and neighbors detracted from the experience. Wanted to like it, but we don’t expect to return.

    Food was good. Always is. Service was poor on Valentine’s Day. Seated on time, waited for the waitress all night. Drinks not refilled, Anything were asked for she said yes but never came. Cheese bread, specific meats, pineapple….. it took almost three hours from sitting to us leaving and that was when we quit waiting for what we asked for.

    I recently had the pleasure of dining at this steakhouse and I must say, it was an incredible experience. From the moment I walked in, I was greeted with warm hospitality and a lively atmosphere. The restaurant had a beautiful ambiance with elegant decor and comfortable seating. The highlight of the dining experience was the endless selection of mouthwatering meats.

    Little disappointed this time around. Not sure I’ll be going back. Meats took awhile to come around, some were extremely salty and others had no salt. Very inconsistent. Only saw maybe 6 meats in total and some meats kept coming around. Not much variety this time and pineapple doesn’t come around anymore so I had to ask for it…and the slices they brought just weren’t the same as when the full pineapple is freshly grilled and brought around. I don’t think it’s worth the $62.50 price tag anymore. Quality has gone downhill over the last few times we visited.

    they have a special brunch menu on the weekend that includes omelettes and waffles for this $36. For $10 more you get the full experience with all of the meat brought to the table and carved as per your request I think this is an excellent value given the quality of the food, the atmosphere and the location.

    It was overall a terrible experience. Service was incredibly bad, everyone with the exception of the manager seemed annoyed and came around with an attitude. The meats were so salty I could not believe it. It was a mission to get the attention of our server to order drinks and then remind him 20 minutes later about them. I am not the type of person that writes reviews all the time, but the disappointment on this place is huge. I am angry because they do not care.

    Seating was horrible, could hardly get out from the table because they seated us very closely in between two other parties. Gauchos hardly came by. We had to "cat-call" them to our table. Market bar need more hot food options, compared to Texas de Brazil -- they are lacking. Filet mignon never came to our table, medium-well and well-done was somewhat difficult to get to our table with all the vampires in the building. Price and experience just not worth the patronage. I won't be back to this location.

    Best pão de queijo , cheese and honey, spectacular Picanha and lamb chops! To the veggies lovers the buffet needs more variety of salads made with additional fresh vegetables… like radishes and zucchini.

    I have been a fan of Fogo for over 20 years and have eaten at many across the country. That said, Ft Lauderdale Fogo is HANDS DOWN the best!!! Fantastic location, fantastic staff, great open and large restaurant floor. I was extremely impressed even after all I've eaten over the years. Great Job Ft Lauderdale Fogo De Chao. The servers were super attentive and more than willing to help with suggestions and made us feel like friends not just customers.

    It took me some time to write this review because I honestly didn’t know how to since I rarely have unsatisfactory dining experiences. This was my first experience at a Fogo De Chao, or any Brazilian steakhouse for that matter, so I’ll start with the food—amazing! That’s it. Now for the experience: I expected the customary “have you dined with us before?” from my waiter, but was asked about my drink order instead. Totally fine, maybe after we get drinks? We got our drinks, we got our toasting glasses, the ball dropped, meat swords are going around & passing our table, and my husband & i are just sitting at the table because we’re confused. From a chain like fogo de chao, I didn’t think I’d have to ask for an explanation of the process. We didn’t see our waiter often, I had to have the hostess retrieve him just to get the check. It’s the new year, everyone’s celebrating, we can understand you’re caught up in the moment & have other tables, but I can use one finger to count how many times we saw the waiter unprompted (I had to call him back to get the explanation previously mentioned.) When he got to the table he said “last call, what do y’all want?” We were so turned off by that statement we literally wanted nothing but the check at that point. Lastly, we were seated at the end table near the kitchen: that’s such a tight space, my husband was bumped by staff and other diners all night. I was shocked to go around the corner to the bathroom at the beginning of my reservation to see empty tables.
