Beautiful restaurant, but too crowded and noisy.
Interesting items on the salad bar.
Certainly wish people would dress appropriately for an upscale restaurant.
Wrinkled shirts, jeans and sneakers don’t cut it!

Our server must have left during a shift change because we never saw her for an hour and no one helped up. I had to call their main line on my cell phone to get someone to help us and to get our check. So much for a 16th birthday celebration for my son. He wanted to leave because it took so long and skip a birthday dessert. He has asked to go every year for his birthday for the last five years and told me after he wouldn’t ask again

Went for Thanksgiving. Food was good, but no gravy for turkey and stuffing. Variety of meat was not as good as I expected, so value wasn’t very good. Service wasn’t great as server never came back to take my wife’s drink order. Meat servers did not come to our table as much as usual. Also disappointed that had to pay for parking.

The restaurant looked beautiful and clean as always. For some reason, the meats we were offered were fairly dry (most of us ordered medium rare temperatures) and although the flavor was great, we all noticed the meat itself was quite dry and also very chewy. Our past experiences dining here were much better so I’m not sure if there has been a change somewhere that affected the quality of there meat specifically for our dining experience last night. Also, the service was quite slow, the servers may have been overwhelmed but I do want to note this observation, we had to follow up on all of our drinks, and desserts.

This was our first time at this Fogo. We we for there at 330p until about 6p. Most of that time we spent waiting. For meats to come around, for servers to come with the check, for servers to come to bring us the correct check. I'm trying not to punish service but it was t busy the entire time we were there but service was slow the whole time. The food was ok, but not the best that we've come to know from Fogo. And that includes the waygu. And it was colder inside than outside. So it wasn't the best experience.

Quality of food is very good but they don’t have enough servers & they took a long time to go around.
I must say the staff were trying hard but too long a wait before you get what you asked for.

Omelette was well prepared, though the station was often unattended which caused a wait. No bacon today also. As it got busy was difficult to even get hot water for tea. Meat was great, salad bar wonderful. Service was good also . Spanish coffee well prepared.

Usually we go for the full meal but this time, due to a previous engagement, we just did the salad bar. Therefore, my guess, we felt a little abandoned when we had to pile the used plates on the table.
Benefit of the doubt, maybe it was the big party in the private room. Besides that little hiccup, we were into our own world to let it bother us much.

Service was poor. Swarmed by servers a single time at the start of our meal aggressively when we were not ready then very hard to get someone. Ordered a bottle of wine and it took at least 20 mins to arrive, long after we had started to eat. Overall food was OK but service struggled.I am very forgving especially during the shortage of people in hospitality at the moment but a smile and explanation would have gone a long way.

Have had many meals at Foge over the years and have never had a bad experience. Normally service , food and ambiance is 5 stars. Unfortunately not the case at Tyson’s location. I was hosting 3 business associates. We were sat down for our dinner and left with no server. Finally another server came over to get drink orders. He said he wasn’t our server but the one assigned to us was running late … in the time of Covid we are all used to being more patient and understanding so we said it was fine. 20 mins after taking our drink order we still did not get them. I finally tracked the waiter down who took the drink order and he said the waitress assigned to us and would bring them over. 5 mins later we get our drinks. Throughout the meal we had gaps of no service for twenty mins. For those familiar with the green and yellow cards we had our cards flipped to green for 25 mins without and food being brought around. We all were over trying to be patient and asked for our check. We tipped 20 % but it really should have been zero. Not a place we will return to.

I was so disappointed in our initial experience at this location because we were forced to wait 45 minutes after our reservation time before our party of 5 was seated. The hostess kept saying that staff were cleaning tables and the wait wouldn’t be long. That was untrue. For the price, this kind of thing should not happen there. Once seated, the service was very attentive and good. But, we were annoyed and hangry before we were able to eat, and this detracted from the experience. We won’t return to this location on a Saturday night again.
