It was quite busy for a Sunday night because of Veteran’s Day and their special! The wait staff was very busy and the meats seemed to be over cooked or not prepared as well because of this! It was like they weren’t prepared for such a busy night!

The restaurant was loud and it took 25 minutes to get our check after asking for it. The food was good but jut meat theme dis not sit well with me. Also when booked I noted that it was for a birthday and no one mentioned or asked about it. The restaurant is nice and fun but the price puts it in comparison with much better options.

We go to Fogo about 2-3 times a year for date nights and such. This was the worst experience we have had. Seating was fine, table location was fine. The big challenge was that not enough of the meat courses came by our table. Often we waited 10 minutes or more between gauchos coming by. This was not just our table but many others around we complaining of the same. It just looked as though they did not have enough staff and too little food for how busy they were.

For desert we ordered creme brûlée’s - it took 30 minutes to get those delivered to our table and the manager had to get involved.

Funny, getting the bill cleared taken care of was top priority for them. That took a few minutes.

Not a good service night at a normally fantastic restaurant, hopefully not a sign of things to come.

Horrible experience with incredibly poor service. Our food (salmon) arrived after the rest of the table was eating dessert. Waiter never came to refill drinks. Waiter never came to give us check. I had to wonder around the restaurant as hostess stand empty, no manager available. Finally got the bartender to give us the check. I should have just walked out but couldn't bring myself to not pay. I will NEVER go back. It used to be a good restaurant but no longer. Go anywhere else. Anywhere.

My boyfriend lives in Madison, WI. He was in town this past weekend and I we had many things scheduled.

We came here after we grabbed dinner at a different restaurant for dessert before a show. We love both Fogo. He loves all the meat options and I (being a vegetarian of 18 years), love the salad bar. We both love the delicious desserts and after meeting some friends for drinks and a quick bite, popped over to Fogo. The service was great and we enjoyed catching up over dessert.

We are big fans of Fogo. It is bit on the higher price for so our visits are limited. The Salad bar was outstanding but we were not happy that the salmon was regularly missing from the table as were some of the meats. Went back more than once to get some. The meat products were fantastic as usual. I am a big fan of their lamb chops and they were outstanding as usual. The bottom sirloin was also cooked to perfections. The food service was very good however the table service could use some work. It took about 10 minutes to get some horse radish sauce and they are regularly coming by trying to get you to buy add ons such as shrimp cocktail.
All in all, it was another good experience and we will be back.

Very expensive for what you get. A person came around asking if we wanted a shrimp cocktail but did not say it was at an extra cost rather deceitful. If I had not read about this in other reviews I would have been tempted to get one. I guess when it is all you can eat meat it is confusing when you are offered one that it would be an additional cost. I think the amount of meat that you get here, a lot of it too rare for our liking, you could go to another steak house and have better quality and quantity for less money. Doubt I will ever return.

We have been other times, but service was horrible today. Kept bypassing our table. We literally sat without anyone coming by for fifteen minutes while the tables around us got served. The waiter helped things get fixed, but this experience sort of soured the restaurant for me for a while

We visited Fogo de Chao before going to the theatre. They seemed to have a few servers (not the gauchos) working the section, which lead to a few mix ups: two issues with our drinks, then our credit card was run on the wrong bill. The food was good. I was underwhelmed by the market bar, but most of the meats were flavorful and cooked well. Overall, I wouldn't return because it didn't seem like a good value, which I find to be common with all-you-can-eat restaurants.

I have been to MANY different Fogo's & other Brazilian steakhouses. This one had by-FAR the best service of any of them. Friendly, prompt, responsive, and personable. When we asked or a specific meat type - they followed up & followed through. They didn't require me to ask over and again like most of these. Drinks stayed full. It was truly the best experience I've ever had at a Fogo.

We had a 5 p.m. reservation Saturday night we arrived five minutes early and checked in we were given a pager and told you it would just be a few minutes after 10 minutes went by and people who have reservations for 5:15 and 530 have been seated ahead of us they finally realize they had made a mistake. Our server continually overlooked our table for beverages or any additional sides. Two of the waiters bumped into each other dropping a plate of potatoes on my shoulder I didn't get any food on me but neither of them said I'm terribly sorry. Full experience is what we had purchased the meats were good the rest of the food and salad bar are well below average. Poor service below-average food and a very busy and noisy environment made this a waste of $200 for a dinner for two
