Excellent place if you are a meat eater. One of the best "rodisios" in Brazil. The variety of meat is amazing as well as the side dish options. Even if you are vegetarian there is plenty for you to eat. I have been on it in Washington and it is very similar. Highly recommended if you want to taste... read more

Based on the experience I had with other restaurants of the same chain Fogo de Chão (Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Washington DC, Las Vegas), I never thought I would have to review one as borderline average. Actually, I am classifying it as average only because the setting is nice, it is clean, food is decent (but not even close to the... More

From the outset the venue is chaotic, the waiters are running around like mad which doesn't make you feel relaxed at all. They are friendly but just racing around which doesn't seem overly necessary. Beer is expensive, we went for a bottle of Brazilian Cab Sav, which was very nice. However the meat, which I assume is the main reason... More

My 3rd visit to Fogo de Chao in 4 years and it always hits the spot. Awesome meat, great drinks, decent salad bar (but who goes to a churrascaria to eat salad?!) A bit on the pricey side, compared to competitors, but at today's advantageous exchange rates even that's not a big deal. Highly recommended

The place is a paradise for carnivores. They serve 16 different grilled meats and steaks and offer a good salad bar too. The quality and atmosphere of the place is great but I feel it a bit overpriced. I did enjoy my time there.

If you like meat -Brazilian style - I recommend Fogo de Chao in Brasilia where the service is excellent and the variety of dishes can satisfy a demanding taste. Well situated in the federal capital this restaurant is busy at lunch time with a crowd of elegant office staff and business men. Salad bar and wine list are good.

I went to the restaurant with a work colleague. The vegetable and salad selection was dismal. I balanced my meal with tomatoes and olives primarily. The salad leaves weren't too appetizing. The staff were good, quite prompt. The meat was good but not the best I've ever had in Brazil. I'm sure you can find better Picanha for cheaper elsewhere... More

I have visited this chain in other cities and based on the fact that it is a Brazilian restaurant in Brazil,I really expected to be over the top.. Unfortunately I was disappointed. In my opinion a step below other Fogo De Chaos I had visited.. You can find better Rodizzios in Brazil for less money.

The service at this restaurant was excellent. The food was very good offering a wide variety of meats. At first I wasn't eating very much because the meats were a little under cooked for my taste. I asked a waiter if they could possibly make some closer to well for me and they were very polite and made a wide... More
