    Second time dining at Fogo De Chão and it was great! My brothers and I enjoyed our time and they had a first great experience as well. Food was fresh and the salad bar items were delicious as well. Definitely planning to visit again.

    We were celebrating a birthday here and both had the market table salad bar. The food was plenty full, fresh and delicious. The service from waitress Dominique was very upbeat and attentive. I would definitely recommend the market table, and would get the meat dishes only if you are very hungry, and in the mood for meat. The discounted cocktails are a real treat. Very refreshing.

    Service was terrible! Been to other Fogo’s before on a busy day and their service is not terrible. They still attend your table very often. We had to ask for the same thing over and over and over and it took them anywhere between 15 to 30 minutes to get to our table every time we needed something.

    We arrived on time for our resv. We seated and gathered food for more than 10 mins with no server on sight. I have to get the manager to give us water. You can see a lot of workers just talking, eating, drinking in the bar, very unprofessional. At one point we witness a worker walking from kitchen with Starbucks drink, drinking while walking. Lots of food passed our table that we cannot understand why. No manager touches our table that we have to call a server to replenish the water (again). We tried to bring to the server's attention (I believe her name is Denise). She rudely answered back that it is Mother's Day, and we should be understanding. I will call the manager if you want! I brought my family on this special occasion so that they will have the Fogo de chao experience. We pay the same rate just like anyone else to get the experience and this is not what we are expecting from this establishment. Definitely will not go back to this branch and will tell my friends and family about the experience. We paid our check and give her the appropriate tip even with bad service. I will stay away from this restaurant!

    We had a large party of 15 and we brought tons of flowers that didn’t fit in our table. The staff and the manager were so gracious and helped hold all of our floral arrangements in the back until we were finished with dinner. It was a great experience.

    We celebrated my birthday at Fogo de Chao in Pasadena with a party of 8. Unfortunately, we were seated right by the kitchen door, so there was a lot of traffic. Despite being there for almost 25 minutes, we weren't served any meat. We had to ask our waiter, who was helpful, multiple times before any meat was brought out. Given that it's a Brazilian meat restaurant, this was disappointing. Even when they did start serving, they skipped one or two people at our table each time. I had booked the table with a special deal for $49, but we ended up paying full price and receiving minimal service. To top it off, one of the waiters spilled water on our table. We had to speak to the restaurant manager about all these issues, and thankfully, she offered us free dessert to compensate. Overall, despite it being my second time there, it was not a pleasant experience at all.

    Worst experience we’ve had at a Fogo restaurant. It was supposed to be a birthday celebration. Hostess had a frown on her face when we first walked in and was not the most friendly. Once we got seated, we’ve waited more than 10 mins and finally had to ask who our server was. The selection of meat was very few and we’ve requested the lamb chop 3 separate times with 2 different servers and nothing for over 45 mins. We were told it was coming multiple times and finally had to ask from a manager before we got the lamb chop 15 mins later. Lastly, the meat server was not very nice. I’ve had to request 2nd slice of meat multiple times before he would allow it. I will never go back to the Fogo in Pasadena.

    we’ve been here so many times and love it but the sunday night staff seemed on edge and as much as i understand upselling the gm was kinda pushy, they had way less of a selection walking around than usual and you really seemed to have to flag down waiters so while it was weird vibes well for sure come back- tried the brûlée cheesecake for the first time though and it was amazing

    Even with a reservation on a Saturday at 7:00pm our group waited over an hour. They kept telling us we are next. We could’ve decided to go to another restaurant but they weren’t honest about what time we’d be seated. Sadly, they didn’t honor our reservation and took them over an hour to finally seat us. They overbook, entrance is super crowded with customers upset with waiting time. I won’t be coming back. Be careful with your bill, might be overcharging you. We did and we said something. I’m disappointed.

    “All you can eat” but was only served meat 3 times.. they claim they have 15 different types but you can’t get anyone to bring you any food.. everything in the buffet was disgusting. Inedible and half the trays were empty even after asking the staff to replenish them. The tomato soup was freezing cold. Way over priced. Poor quality food and bad experience. Will never go back

    Made reservations for my father‘s birthday. It was His 1st time there. Checked in 530pm for his 545pm reservation didn’t get a table till 6:15pm. We were the last to be seated from everyone that was waiting at the same time. We got our table. Our server forgot to bring our drinks for the whole party. About 30 minutes before all of our drinks were brought. Restrooms were dirty, with no toilet paper in the stall that I went into. There was slippery floors in the restroom and throughout the restaurant. Don’t wear heels. Took a while for our plates to be cleared and waited another 15 minutes for our desserts to be served. I spoke highly of this restaurant to my father, who is a fan of Brazilian food and all it was a big disappointment for him on his birthday, overall will not be going back. I will take my $500 elsewhere for our next special occasion.

    overall the food was good, you definitely have to come hungry BUT the reservations are useless. they give out so many that when you get there you still have a 30-60 minute wait. the staff is rude and watching boxing instead of doing their job. worth trying but make sure to come prepared.

    My wife and I went to the Pasadena location for our anniversary dinner. We used a promotion FOGO $44 (they asked us to reference that when we made the reservation). I love the concept of getting to try a selection of different meats so I was really looking forward to the meal. The $44 option is limited to the lower tier cuts of meat, and we were offered the option to upgrade to the higher tier for an additional $20, which we declined, but it felt like we were also relegated to a second tier of service. The salad bar was great but after we finished our salad we waited for about 10 minutes and none of the servers had come to our table. Servers would continually pass by and offer food to tables around us, but they ignored us. Perhaps those customers had paid for the upgrade and were getting the higher grades of meat. It was a Sunday night and the restaurant appeared moderately busy but far from packed. Eventually, our primary waiter came back to check on us and we mentioned that we had not been served yet. He sent someone to our table and we enjoyed our first cut of meat. After that, it was back to hurry up and wait for another serving. About 10 minutes later, another server did bring us a second option and we enjoyed that. I mentioned that I really was looking forward to the lamb. He told me that the lamb was only for the higher tier (when our original server told us that there was a cut of lamb included). I asked him to check and he did correct himself and finally the lamb server came to our table. Unfortunately, the whole game of "how do we get served/when are we getting served" occupied the entire focus of our meal, completely negating any enjoyment or romantic ambiance. When we got the check, it turned out the $44 option that we had to specifically mention at the time of the reservation, was actually $49 per person in Pasadena -- due to higher costs, no doubt, which I understand -- but it was a bit of sticker shock.

    We're disheartened to learn that your anniversary dinner didn’t live up to your expectations.

Kindly call our Pasadena team so we can better understand your visit and take steps to ensure a truly celebratory experience in the future. Thank you.

    Well, per my reservation, this is to celebrate my son’s 10th birthday. This is one of his favorite restaurants. We’ve been here few times before with other groups. This time, we were excited for this experience and birthday memory. We came on a rainy evening. The restaurant wasn’t that busy. We thought we’re going to get better service. From the get go, they sat us at a dark corner far from the buffet & main dining area. We had to flag down our server who took about 30 mins to bring our drinks. She complained that she’s busy when we joked that she forgot about us. We’re looking forward to our favorite meat cuts but unfortunately, all they kept offering was the bacon wrapped chicken & beef. One gaucho had leg of lamb came by. Then that’s it. We had to flag another server down to ask for cheese rolls & sides & ask for more meat. None still came. Some gauchos would walk around our table & not stop to offer what they had. I got up & spoke to the hostess for help. All she asked was, did I notify our server? How can I ? We can’t see her. I told her I asked someone else. I don’t think she bothered to follow up. Eventually, more meats came, closer to night’s end. They were unapologetic. The staff wasn’t attentive to our needs. It was difficult getting any side or drink refills. When we ordered dessert, that too took a long while. My son ordered molten cake. A server awkwardly served a plate with melted ice cream cause it probably sat out too long before it was taken to us. There was a droopy happy birthday scribble on the plate and not one of the many staff even wished him a happy birthday. We are very disappointed. If I had known service quality deteriorated this much, we would have visited Brea instead. Horrible experience overall from the cold hostesses , absent servers and gauchos. The food may have been good, but the service left an unforgettable and maybe unforgivable impression. I don’t think we are coming back here

    Honestly has been the worst experience ever I came in with a reservation and waited over 45 minutes and that was no fun with two toddlers when we finally got to the table they took forever to bring meats around and even trying to get a hold of our server was a mission definitely not a good experience I would avoid coming to this Fogo de Chão location honestly wasn’t happy at all.

    It was a very busy night at the restaurant, but the overall experience was amazing. The food was delicious and plentiful. They brought around as many serving as desired. The service was excellent although the house was crowded. We are very pleased with the dinner and I highly recommend coming here.

    The food was good, but the service was poor. We sat for a half hour without any meat brought to our table. Took over an hour to get any steak picanha. Our server seem disinterested and would disappear for long periods of time.

    Attended the Bar Fogo event and really enjoyed it. Our service was fantastic. Jennifer, Dominique and Michelle really took great care of us. The food was delicious and that bacon is out of this world. The cocktails were good too. Highly recommend attending their events.

    Salad bar was great , but 95% of meat too salty need to drink a lot of water . Hope next time come to restaurant can enjoy more without too salty 😅

    Market table selection was nice. Atmosphere was nice. Cons: very hard to get a piece of meat cooked to our liking (med rare); poor service tied in with that - when asked what we needed, request was not fulfilled in time manner. Our rez was for 11:30 and we didn’t leave until 2:45, mostly due to a lot of waiting around for our server and the right cut of meat.

    The experience here at the Pasadena,CA location was a huge miss for me. We had a reservation at 7PM and did not get seated until approximately 8PM. Tables were turning very slowly, tables not being bussed quickly enough, cleanliness was extremely poor. This seemed like an experience at a HomeTown Buffet of some sort. The Huntington Beach, CA location has a far much more sophisticated ambience then this location. In hopes to have a semi casual celebration dinner experience turned out to be a very casual dining experience that I would not return back to this location. The Hostess at this location was very disorganized and was incorrectly quoting wait times. She quoted us 15 min for our RESERVATION when it was actually 1HR. The demeanor that she carried without a friendly smile should tell you it was not going to be the best experience. First impression is everything and that begins with your staff, honoring your consumers reserved times, clutter of entry way (I.e. desk and boxes), close proximity from wait lobby to seated guests, etc. The restaurant seemed to be very short staffed or maybe that’s how it operates regularly. I would avoid this location as other locations you are guaranteed to have a far more better experience and more sophisticated dining experience.

    My 11 year old and I enjoyed the ultimate experience menu. All you can eat mixed salad/food bar and tasty portions of beef, lamb and chicken. Different servers come with different meats cooked at varying temperatures based on your taste. We are like the carnivorous beasts that we are and walked out with a great taste still in our mouths. The ambience of the place is amazing with what looks like 40 feet + ceiling meticulously detailed with beautiful art which staring up at seemed to help me with my digestion as I waited for the next round to come around. In the end, we ultimately gave up and turned over our circular green and red sided cards to red. They should give up surrender flags to make it more entertaining. Just saying.

    I’ve been so many times in this location had very good experience previously but this time the service was very bad, servers you had to ask more than once, I had to ask exactly six times for a cheese bread and he kept forgetting, meat distribution was not fast. The only fast service was when I asked for the bill it took him not even one second.

    I was very disappointed by our visit. It took a really long time from when we were seated for the meat to start coming. The servers were no where to be found. The bread ran out at the buffet and there was no one checking to see if the food needed to be replenished. The floor by the buffet was dirty with food on the floor and no one came to clean. I have been to other locations and got way better service.

    Although we’ve dined at this location a few times, our Easter lunch was a bit disappointing. The salad bar was great and our initial server was attentive. The issue was no one stopped consistently at our table with the meat selections. They would walk past us even with our green indicator clearly displayed. Our server did stop and ask us what cuts we were waiting for but they didn’t stop for more than 20 minutes. We finally asked one of the servers with the meat to send someone and they did. I love this restaurant and I usually find it to be a good deal but we didn’t have enough meat to offset the cost this time.

    Nicole, we're sorry to hear that your Easter lunch did not live up to previous experiences. Consistent and attentive service is key to our dining concept. Please call so we can make necessary improvements to ensure your next visit is completely satisfying. Thank you.
