Very good food and staff was very friendly. I wasn't expecting a more "self-serve" style with the market/food bar. It was very expensive for the type of atmosphere. I think I had different expectation (I thought it would be more formal). Overall the food was great. Very expensive however.

I was underwhelmed. I am not a steak eater, so I ate chicken. The chicken was very dry and the salad bar options were not that tasty. I did enjoy the lobster and shrimp appetizer.

Dinner to celebrate 30 y.o. grand's birthday on a Sunday! She enjoyed it very much! Service was outstanding - example - we felt that the tableside meat carvers were not circulating enough at our table with the meats, and informed our main server - she took care of it, and boy, did they come! Also, grand wanted well done beef and chicken - and was served exactly as she requested! Staff very friendly and accommodating!

Our experience started with the cheese bread (pão de queijo in Portuguese )! As a Brazilian I could not even figure out what that was and had to ask the server! As I headed to the buffet for the feijoada, I found the black beans with no meats in it, which makes it NOT a feijoada, just black beans! The salad bar was also very disappointing :) options weren’t there anymore :meat selection were very poor( overall experience was terrible and our family will not be coming back to this churrascaria ever again! Especially when you choose the place to celebrate your 50th birthday.

I have been to Fogo de Chao plenty of times and had an amazing dinner. This time was absolutely horrible. I am not the type to complain but the service was terrible at best. The food was not up to par how it usually is. The same three servers kept coming over with the same meat. We asked numerous times to send a particular meat over and was told numerous times they would be right over and of course no one ever came. When spending $200.00 for a anniversary dinner and then to get subpar service and food it is completely ridiculous and pretty annoying. Don’t think we will be coming back for dinner anytime soon. Rather spend my money somewhere else.

Had a lot of fun with our dinner. Our server was attentive in getting us the food choices we wanted and directing us regarding COVID protocols and the experience in general. There was a seemingly unending amount of choices of meats rotating around constantly which was perfect when combined with the salad bar for our family. The kids found a lot they liked and it was nice they got to sample tasting so many different foods. And for my wife and I we ate and enjoyed pretty much everything until we were stuffed. If you just want a "steak" you can get one from one of the other local steakhouses and maybe even a better one, but this is a cool place to not just get "food" but rather an experience.

The meat is incredible! I wish they brought it around a little slower so that we could enjoy the piece while its hot before getting a new piece. Other than that, everything was delicious! The soup was amazing and the salad bar was also very good! The best part is DESSERT! Get the flan, it will not disappoint!

Fantastic. From the floor manager (ponytail, white top) down to every gentleman carving the meat, they were friendly, funny, courteous. We had a number of laughs with the staff and it felt great to be out and about and safe and having fun with everyone. The only service close to what is offered here is on a cruise ship in their finest dining rooms. Unparalleled. Oh and the wine specials and recommendations were spot on!
If I had to nitpick-where are the flip cards?! I felt so bad having to refuse a meat carver (Instead of being able to flip to red) because they were all so great remembering what we liked and at what temp!! Please bring back the flip cards! Less pressure lol

Don’t ever go to place I thought highly of it for being our first time and how it was in the city I expected this place to be nice. The manager didn’t resolve our problem once we told him why our server didn’t checked on us if we needed anything let alone clear our table. Once we saw a bug on our desert he just laughed and said oh hahahaha I can get you another like no sir we need to speak with the owner. This the second time we came to you and you flagged us off as if it’s a joke. My husband almost punched on this disrespectful manager luckily I stopped it from happening. The manager is Ricardo something like that low curly hair a tad tanned. Super rude. The area they sat us was dusty not good at all. I definitely don’t recommend and wouldn’t visit again

We’ve been waiting to go back here since covid started last year. They taking all precautions to keep their customers safe. They have disposable gloves and hand sanitizer sitting at the entrance of the salad bar. Food was great and service is top notch. Come hungry because their steak is delicious.

Service was A1, very attentive. Meats were ok. I eat medium well and my wife eats well done. When we asked for well done, they wouldn’t show back up. (Server kind of fixed it when we addressed it). We also had the shrimp margarita. The shrimps came in 6 pcs, we had four and continued to finish the last 2... it was absolutely disgusting, they were so soft and mushy, we had to spit them out after a bite. Pineapple mint lemonade was delicious. Creme brûlée and molten lava cake was soooo good. I’ve enjoyed fogo more the last time I’ve been here.
