Food was great. Host wasn’t helpful in getting a table with some privacy for our Anniversary dinner. Also there isn’t one server assigned to you. Gets confusing on who to ask what.

They literally ruined our date night. Inconsistent service, for the amount you pay to dine there you shouldn’t have to wait 30 mins + for someone to even acknowledge that there’s no food on your table!! Never again. Very very dissatisfied overall.

Service was deplorable. We had to stop random servers for little things like clean plates and water and extra side dishes. The only one that noticed we were out of water was the manager… Twice! We have been there before but the last couple of times Service has been going downhill.Not sure we will be going back anytime soon!

The initial server we had was cold, rude and in a hurry to not serve us. But as soon as the food starting coming everything got better. The food carvers were super, we were able to get a good selection of meats while they were hot and delicious (which is the first time this has happened in at least a dozen visits). Our initial server was nowhere to be found which is odd since the place had just opened, but good for us. Our customer service ladies who took over were terrific and saw to our needs. Overall, this visit would have been 5 stars if the initial server was not assigned to our table. But Kudos to everyone else for a job well done.

The food quality was surprisingly not good. Our waitress disappeared and the seating area we were at was next to the buffet so a lot of traffic of people going back and forth next to our table. Table was wobbly. Took forever to get our bill. We will never come back.

Food quality has gone way down after they changed their menu. Salad bar is too small compared to the other Fogos around the country. No asparagus in the salad bar.

They try to upsell their drinks in the cart and the meats have lost all their flavor and quality.

Service was Top Notch, hence the rating.

I went with a friend for their Sunday lunch special and I wasn't overly impressed.
Some of the meat was completely over cooked and over salted.

Good wine selection.

It was also far too expensive for what it was :(
If you were a big eater there is an endless salad bar and meat available. With that in mind I would say you could get your value for money but if you are not massive eaters then this is very expensive and a bit of a waste.

This was the best restaurant I ever went to. I took a couple friends here and the service was outstanding!! I love the high quality choices of meat that is sliced at your table. It was also awesome to see that they were serving Louis XIII table side!!!! The best experience ever! You better try this place. You'll love it! The staff is very friendly with a great sense of humor and the food is the best ever!!

The only problem we had, is that we had to keep waiting for ever for someone to come and give us a desert menu, we had to stop someone that was just passing by to ask him for one, and the same thing to finally order, the person serving our table never came by, we kept looking around to find her, with no luck. At least they were fast to bring the check as i would have hated to wait in order to be able to even pay.

Celebrated Father’s Day. This was the second time I have been to this restaurant. Both times have been fantastic. The meats are cooked to perfection and the salad options are all tasty. On Father’s Day they gave gift cards to the Father’s for a free dinner or lunch, which was a nice touch.

The dinner was amazing. The service was great. My only concern was work gossip. As a customer, I don’t want to hear individual problems and/or negative remarks about other workers. There’s definitely a place and time for these types of things but it should never be in an area full of customers who can hear you.

I would highly recommend Fogo de Chao. Great place for a date night, family event or large gathering. Food was fantastic and I recommend going with a large appetite as there is plenty of food to explore and taste. The wine selection was very nice too and craft cocktails. I loved the mint cucumber cocktail very refreshing. It was very relaxed atmosphere, the staff and service was exceptional. I like the fact that they do not rush you so you can truly enjoy the experience.

We were seated in an odd spot so the meat servers rarely came around, and the good meats never came to us at all. It was very disappointing to see them come close but never serve us.

It was my first time there and in a Brazilian steak house. And it was an experience that I won't forget. Great food and service all night. It was great, just flip your card over to green and they kept coming with all the different kinds of meat done perfectly for how anyone would like it and the salad bar is impressive. We had a vegetarian in our party and she was really happy with the choices she had.

This was maybe out 4-5 time eating here. It was the first time we felt pressure by the wait staff to upgrade our meal package - he basically acted as if the $135 steak add on was way better in comparison to the crappy steak they come around with. Not a great way to sell and upcharge! Then he would come by refilling our wine glasses every two seconds and when the bottle was empty preemptively placed an unopened bottle on the table “just in case”. We felt like he rushed pouring the first bottle just to try and sell the second. Overall we felt rushed but he never came by to offer the sides that come with the meal or ask how things were or if we were waiting on any meat in particular. We always had to grab someone and ask. Not the best experience and it will make me think of coming back as the waiter was very pushy.

Visiting Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse is always a pleasant experience. The service has always been extraordinary even on high volume days. I am always impressed by the professionalism and etiquette the entire staff displays, and I admire how hard the staff work. There are some days where I feel as it is understaffed as checking in can take more than 20 minutes even with a reservation, but I wouldn't necessarily consider that a negative thing especially on busy days. The wait is worth it regardless. I perhaps suggest two hostesses for the restaurant during peak hours as we had someone besides the hostess seat us.

The food and the salad bar are fantastic. The pickle selection was excellent, and I hope they continue it. There are times when the signs at the salad bar are either missing or misplaced, but again, a minor issue that does not hinder my experience.

My only suggestion I have is to work on the cocktails for the bar. The wine selection is great, and we had a lovely wine paired for our meal that night. Furthermore, the beer as well was a decent selection. However, every cocktail thus far has been somewhat mediocre. They sound amazing on paper, but once you receive the drink, it's not bad but not great.

Overall, I believe there are only minor things that can be improved upon. Otherwise, I recommend visiting Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse always. The food and service will surely never disappoint newcomers and returnees.
