Service was great, just had a hard time hearing but that’s expected due to mask wearing. Food was great!

The food and the service was amazing. I love how they have a person making cocktails table side. My only ding is that there is no way to signal the food to stop, so conversations are often interrupted (politely) by someone asking if you want more meat.

This is my favorite location. The staff makes every effort to provide an unforgettable experience every time.
The food is perfectly cooked and seasoned. The drinks ( specially Caphirina) are perfectly crafted.
I can’t say enough about this place. It’s a joy to dine here.

As someone who has frequently dined at Fogo de Choa locations all over the country, there appears to be some changes in their business practices that have really resulted in a very bad drop in the overall experience. I am not sure this is isolated to the Tyson’s Corner location or not, but we were really let down.

While the food remains of a high quality and most of it tastes great, the change in service methods seriously took away from the experience. Fogo is no longer using the “stop/go” coasters for signaling your desire for more cuts of meat. The rather dubious excuse was that it was done because of COVID - but that is doubtful since they have always used paper coasters that are easily thrown away and replaced.

Since we had no way of signaling the staff we were ready for the meat course, we hadn’t even gotten our salads before we started getting bombarded by the staff serving the meat courses. It got to the point that I mentioned something to the staff about not having the stop/go coasters because my wife and I couldn’t even engage in coming. The result of that was then I had to then ask for meat service. Feast or famine, indeed.

The additional changes also noted were less beef options circulating the restaurant unless specifically ordered. I only saw the traditional and still excellent picahna, and the rather dry and cheap bottom sirloin. I only received service of a New York cut one time during the whole dinner. Additionally, several times I asked the servers for more rare cuts and he cut off whatever was available despite my request.

Overall, this was a terribly mediocre and disappointing experience, and not at all what I was accustomed to with a Fogo de Chao location. I highly doubt we will eat there again.

The meat was just ok and that’s what we came for. The fillet took a long long time to come out after asking for it twice and it was a poor cut of meat. So I filled up on the salad bar.

We ate outside in the tented area, and we were the only ones in the tent. It was wonderful! The restaurant was busy, but we felt safer outside. The tent was comfortable, quiet and our server Yvonne was a delight. We’ll be back.

I have to give a fully negative rating to Fogo de Chao because I cannot give any positive marks to a restaurant that breaks the law. Serving alcohol after 10pm is illegal right now because doing so spreads the COVID19 virus. Fogo de Chao management tells its waiters to serve alcohol after 10pm even though they know it is in violation of State law. I am sure this will make some customers happy but not the ones who obey the law and understand that disobeying it will lead to sickness and possibly death to a few of its customers. The apparent greed of the owners and disregard for science makes this a restaurant that I hope will be forced to shut down until the pandemic is over. If you respect science and understand the gravity of the COVID19 crisis, do not go to this restaurant.

We had a great experience at Fogo to close out 2020 with delicious food and drinks. I am not one to go out on holidays and peak ‘special events’ days, but the end of this year warranted a nice celebration. And the staff at Fogo did not disappoint! Everyone was extremely pleasant though they were clearly very busy. The managers Mary Jane and Celiandro checked in with us and were very welcoming; the servers got us all we asked for and made sure things were going well frequently - ah, and Bruno made some exceptional caipirinhas! As for the food... there are no words to describe the work and love that goes into making each item on the buffet or grill. The Gauchos are incredibly nice and respectful and everything we tasted took me right back to Brazil on a day when I wished I could be there the most! Fogo de Chão is always a 5 star in my books and the Tysons location has a special place in my heart! We appreciate the Fogo team for all their hard work and dedication making us feel at home on New Years Eve!

My husband really enjoyed the food, but I came to the realization that I am not a big fan of Brazilian steakhouse after dining here, but still have a great review because of the waitress. She was absolutely amazing! She made us laugh and smile, and we also shared that our “special occasion” was just being on a date night after not having one in so long because of Covid and also not having childcare. She brought out our dessert and wrote date night, making it feel extra special even though it was just a few hours away from our kids for dinner. The dessert, sides, and appetizers were all really good, but again I myself realized during the night that I just didn’t love the concept of Brazilian steakhouse so didn’t enjoy the meats as much as I would have elsewhere.
