Went for a friend’s birthday and I told them in the reservation and also when we got there. Nothing special was done for my friend. Won’t have birthdays here anymore.

The food is very good. The reason for the low rating is the service. Not this time but earlier in the month we were charged 3 times for a 200 dollar bill because the internet wasn’t working properly. Then management couldn’t get the issue resolved so we had to do quite a bit of work on our end to get this resolved. Went back for this visit and service was not very attentive. We were trying for about 20 minutes to get the check. Thought we would give it one more chance but yea, my mistake. Go to Beverly Hills.

Excellent quality of service and the food was outstanding. Just one negative point, the air conditioning was way too high. If I’d had my coat with me, I would gladly have put it on.

We dined here last month and decided to do so again this month.
The enjoyment was even more as everything came out hot. The meat skewers served were not overcooked, as it was in some cases last time. Both my wife and I like our meat cooked no more than medium. We will be back again.

The customer service was impeccable. We came here for a birthday and the $39 Restaurant Month deal. Food was good for the $39 but I wouldn’t pay regular price.

We started off great food was amazing table service was amazing. We told our host that seated us that we were there for the restaurant month special. They would stop by our table with meat even if we had the marker on red. But once we spoke to whom I believe was a manager we told him what we were there for the special and he brought us a special menu placed them on all the table and that’s were things seem to stop. We weren’t getting the attention with meat. We asked the same manager to bring us out certain dishes and it never happened for 45 minutes until we were done with our meal. Don’t get me wrong food was amazing service was great. But seemed like having the special menus on the table took away some attention from us.

Our waitress whose name started with a V - I believe it was Veronica was very attentive and kind. She made sure we had everything we requested and the staff who served the meat brought us the food we desired to our liking. Having visited other Fago’s - we weren’t at all disappointed.

First time at this location I usually go to the one in Beverly hills, but I can say all the meat seemed very over cooked, very fatty and slightly salty, a bright spot was definitely the service very attentive, great attitudes, and very fast

Fogo is a very reputable restaurant and I have been to many locations across the States. Unfortunately our experience at this downtown location is a let down. The service was not very attentive. Asked for medium rare meat and got medium or well done. The carvers didn’t seem to care what they gave you. Our entire party (along with other patrons around us) had no food on the plates for at least 10-15 minutes. We had to repeatedly asked for food to be sent. The manager did stop by to say hello. When the bill came, it already had a huge 20% tip sign on it. Very distasteful.

Definitely do not recommend this place.

I went for a dinner with my husband at Fogo de Chão to commemorate our anniversary and it was good, for a dinner on a Saturday night I was expecting more variety of meats. And also, we never got chicken served. That's why I did not give 4/5 for everything. I am a brazilian and I have been to other Brazilian steakhouses, unfortunately I am not able to say that Fogo de Chão is my favorite so far. The restaurant was pretty busy and I have to say that the situation was handled very well. The cheesebread (Pao de queijo) was amazing. I hope if I come back in the future, I will have a better experience.

Dine in LA experience. Meats needed more seasoning. Several pieces lacked flavor, otherwise, the salad bar, appetizers, dessert and Caipirinha were very good. Service was also great.

We went for our anniversary during Dine LA week, it was really good. The salad / market bar was really fresh and good. The sides were good and the meat was fantastic. We also split a bottle of wine which was good as well. The service was great.

We came for my wife’s birthday and also for the dine la special but we opted for the regular menu as we wanted the other steak options. When the staff came to serve the meats the slices of picana was so paper thin which is fine if they came often but I was literally raising my hand for a server to come. Many tables around us seemed to get proper treatment but for some reason ours was not. I even had one server say to me he would be back and never came. After a while we became tired of waiting and left. Not coming back to this location. Disappointed.

We made a reservation for 7:30 but were not seated until 7:55. Our server was not particularly competent - we had to ask for water with no ice four times. The server was not particularly attentive - plates were left on our table until we signaled any passing staff to remove them. Food was delicious and there was a steady rotation of churrascaria options available. But I can get that at other Brazilian steakhouses.

Biggest thing about Fogo de Chao Downtown was the parking. It was the most difficult to maneuver through the city and find a parking. The atmosphere was ok but not outstanding. Food was good and the service was ok.

Not even equivalent to the Beverly Hills location.
If I would of know it would be that bad I would of gone to our usual Beverly Hills fogo de chaos.
Meats take forever to come around. And they don’t even have Cesar salad. When I asked I was told “it’s all there so you can do it yourself.” It’s cramped and there barely space. I get it’s down town but come on. You charge enough
