They make you think you have many choices but that’s not the case. Mostly they bring by sausages and tough cuts of meat. We got the churasco and thought we’d get various cuts of beef, lamb, and chicken but we didn’t.

It was very casual but cramped. The food was good the staff was great. The servers where excellent and the manager came around often to check on us. They weren’t that friendly At bar but everything else was cool. I think next time I will get an entree instead of the full experience because the selection was limited compared to neighboring Brazilian restaurants. But I had a great time.

The regular female waiters were great. In 90 minutes we had 4 stops for sliced meat!!!!! Twice chicken. We had to ask for service more then once. Also had to ask repeatedly for the better cuts such as filet and lamb chops. It was early so uncrowded there’s for no excite. However we were told twice the meat was cooking?!!? Shouldn’t it be ready we your reserved tables arrive? Not the time to be cutting corners. 6th visit, 2nd bad visit, 1st post pandemic closure. 278.00 with a drink a gratuity for 3 people! Not worth it. Very disappointing.

This Fogo is by far the best. We come here to celebrate all of our special occasions and it always has incredible service and staff. The only thing is that the restaurant was VERY crowded and the tables were packed very close together. Aside from that it was great!

Food was very good. The problem was the place was packed, and they did not appear to have enough employees to handle the crowd. Had to wait long times for various items which were ordered, such as tea and coffee. We have been to the Fogo de Chao in King of Prussia. With a totally different experience. KOP was quiet and the staff was extremely attentive.

Our server was very nice and proficient. The food was delicious. Everything had so much flavor! My only complaint is that when you sit down they come over with the two best cuts of meat and then you don’t see the red meat again. I flagged down “the sirloin” guy toward the end because we wanted more steak. He was happy to oblige but I think they only hit each table once.

We have dined at Fogo many times, though this was the first time since before the pandemic started. To be perfectly honest, it was a disappointing experience. It took forever and a day to get our drink order (which arrived well after we started eating). And, the servers continually brought the cheapest meat cuts, over and over. We had to ask in order to get the good stuff.... and for $62 a piece, that should not have been necessary. Ordered a glass of red wine and it came warm AND served with a wine glass that had just came out of the dishwasher. Ridiculous, especially at this price point. So, I think Fogo needs to step up its game. We'll hit Chima or Picanha Grill next time around (and spend a lot less money!)

Service has definitely changed there. Waited 25-30 minutes for our ordered drinks. Had to order the same drink 3 times before they even got it in to the bar. Just not the same place as it once was. Charged us for things we didn’t order then seemed a little salty that we questioned it. Pretty much a shame of what we’ve come to with employment opportunities.

One of my favorite restaurants. This time felt that meat selection was lacking a bit. Gauchos we’re not the traditional Brazilian staff, left us wondering where did they go?
Still an excellent choice but could sense them still trying to recover from pandemic.

The ambiance is what makes this a nice spot to visit, the food is kinda of over priced for what they have to offer which is basically tons of meat. I wouldn’t go back again but it was a good experience.

We ordered drinks. The water came but the soda never came. When the first meat option came around the man dumped the water all over the table. They came and cleaned it up and we asked for a soda again. I would say it took from the time we arrive until we got the soda about 30 minutes if not more. Before our table was soaked with water we only had one medallion with red and green to request or deny food. The girl said she would bring another. It wasn’t until our table was cleaned up that we got a second one when we asked for it again. The meat options were slim. The same two options of meat kept coming out. Lamp chops, and steak or chicken wrapped in bacon. Once in a great while a different meat would come around. Other people sitting near us were also complaining asking for different meats to come over in that area. Too many people were eating there I felt also. There were carts trying to get through and everything else. It just felt tight. This was not our first time here. We have been here many times but I just feel like the service and the selections offered have fallen off.

I would never recommend this restaurant to anyone. I eat at many Fogo de Chao and this by far was the worst in service I would never recommend anyone here.
1. Never saw the person that said her name was eve and she would be at our service. We sat like dummies.
2. When we flipped our cards to green no one came I had to waive them down if they even saw me or get up and walk over and ask for help.
3. If I was able to not pay the bill I would have chosen to do that.
4. This was the worst we were celebrating a special occasion and was ruined.
5. I will never recommend this restaurant to anyone in Philadelphia.

I've eaten at a number of Fogo de Chao restaurants across the US, and quite a few similar places throughout Brazil. This is one of the better ones. The servers were very attentive, the meal was excellent, and I was even impressed with the martini I ordered -- I'm very finnicky about martinis. Highly recommend this restaurant.

I did not realize that this was a "buffet" style restaurant when I made reservations. We we disappointed that you could not just order a Filet, but must order the entire tasting experience. The Market Table food was just so so. There is NO childrens menu. They literally just have french fries for kids, which my child does not eat... so she left hungry because the market table selections were not kid friendly either. We will not be going back.
