Our server didn't seem interested in helping us much. The servers that brought the meat around were all very courteous and friendly. It seemed like our server decided we were done despite the fact that we asked for more meat to be brought to the table. We sat waiting for quite a while before anyone came around. When paying our bill, we didn't get back the correct change but by that time we were pretty much over our experience there and just left.

Food was awesome, my only regret is that I didn't have enough stomach space to try everything. Great service, Austin explained everything and made sure my daughter and I had a great experience. Will be going back to try what I couldn't get to this time.

We have been here 4 or 5 times since opened at Tacoma location. So we made reservations to bring my dad. We were seated in the middle of the dining room. And the meat servers, never came around. I had to ask our waiter to see what was going on. I have been raving how awesome this place is and we bring him and it was mediocre. I understand things happen, and we have had many great experiences. It was just disappointing to bring some one and have a so so experience.

We are regulars at the Las Vegas location. It's wonderful. The Tacoma location is much smaller, however the crew is much friendlier and the food is getting better, It started off good and now is better. By the way, I've found that you don't need to save room for desert. Just order it, you'll find room.

Excellent food and friendly service! This style of dining is great because you don’t have to order and wait on food, it’s constantly coming around. Really all you could eat. Nobody will leave here hungry!

Our server was great - very attentive! Sooo much meat! Wow!! All of the types of beef were amazing, pork loin seemed dry (could have just been that particular roast). Lamb chops were okay - just not a favorite kind of meat, for me. Nice salad bar. Great experience, over all. Would enjoy a return visit sometime.

Our waiter wasn't that attentive to us. He forgot out bread, plantains, and potatoes. We had to ask somebody else to get them for us. We didnt get them until the end of the meal. He also didn't ask us if we wanted icecream with our pie. It doesn't come with it and we got charged for it. Otherwise the food is amazing here. And because of that we will be back.

The food and staff were all 5 stars! It seems the tables are too close together and loud conversations make this 5 star restaurant drop ratings. I understand wanting to cram in as many people as possible (more $) but it's not great for dates.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our date night! The staff were so helpful and attentive! Oh and their sangrias were AMAZING! We were seated prior to our scheduled reservation time which was a surprise since they were packed! The food was exceptionally seasoned and the staff even recommended the sauces that went well with the various meats. Oh and did I say the sangrias were AMAZING 😉

Service and food were great but it is so loud here! And there isn’t a ton of walking room, so getting from table to salad bar was a pain! If someone was carving meats, it was really tight to move around them. Overall we had a great time! The meat was cooked perfectly, salad bar was fresh and delicious and our service was esculent!

The food and service were good. If you have not been there before they do not explain how it works so we were a bit lost. Tables are pretty close together and it is rather noisy not the intimate dinner we thought it might be. Fun birthday experience for my son turning 21.

The atmosphere was perfect. I liked how open and airy the room was when you walked into the place. The salad bar was perfect, but was lacking in fruit. That would be my only complaint. The meat selection was delicious, there was quite a bit of variety.

I would recommend trying this place at least once. I won't be back due to the high price tag and not really being worth that price tag. The food was delicious. The tables are way too crowded! Felt like we were stuffed together like sardines. One of my friends got sick from being served some very raw lamb and being told it was ok to eat it like that. Drinks were strong and delicious.

First I must say we are fans of Fogo de Chao and am comparing Texas de Brazil. The salad bar was very good and is what would bring us back. The cod and shrimp were delicious.
The mashed potatoes tasted like they were instant and the rolls did not begin to compare to the one at Fogo. They tasted like they were from a mix. Some corners can not be cut.
The meats we were served were good but would not bring us back to eat again.

Great food and service. The ambiance is horrible. No booths- just tables all crammed in close together. So close together that when you get up you hit the person behind you. For the price I expected more of a "date" atmosphere and you'd think dessert would come with it.

The food at the buffet was very good but it took them quite a while to refill once it was emptied, such as the cod & scalloped potatoes. The table was very small so it was hard to fit our meat plates, buffet plates, glasses of water & our bar drinks & then still have room for the gauchos to slice our meats. The staff was all very nice & made every attempt at making you feel special.

Amazing. Absolutely amazing. This was our first time trying the restaurant. Several people had previously told us how good it was but it far exceeded our expectations. The salad bar is by far the most options i've ever seen on a salad bar and everything I tried from it was delicious (and I tried pretty much everything). The meats were so SO good. Neither my husband nor I really liked any of the lamb options as they were pretty bland compared to the other meat choices but considering there were about 6-7 different choices, one bad one ain't too shabby.

My only complaint is that I got full and couldn't keep going. Oh, and also that the servers don't really check to see if your card is red or green. They kind of just keep coming and asking if you'd like to try whatever meat they have. It made for a difficult time to try and have an uninterrupted conversation but it wasn't unbearable and eventually they slowed down and stopped coming altogether.
