What an awesome experience we had at Fogo recently in Miami Beach! We've been to other Fogos but the service here was a cut above the rest! We had fantastic food, drinks, dessert and service! All the servers were so attentive to our needs and requests! You won't regret dining at this Fogo!!

I dined here earlier today, meat was very good, buffet is varied but most of it was not the result of any chef's work. Desserts were ok but very ordinary, we tried 3 at our table. Some uncertainties in the service. The pricey menu should call for higher standards.

This was our 2nd trip to Foga in Miami. The service is excellent from the valet parking at arrival through the meal and returning our car to us at the end. The steak is fantastic, the house speciality a firm favourite and the general variety of meats on offer is great.

We went here for lunch (significantly Chester) while in Miami. There is valet parking (at a charge) at the restaurant. To start with we were invited to go to the buffet - this was fantastic - would have been a great meal on its own. Then it was the main course - the waiters each carry around different cuts of...

If you are carnivorous like me this is the place to visit. A nice clean restaurant with terrific service. You start with the very fresh selections at the salad bar. And then the feast begins. Gauchos continually going around the tables tempting you with delicious cuts of meats. Skirt steak, filet mignon, chicken warped in bacon just to name a... More

We've been in several Fogo de Chao places (Los Angeles, Orlando and Miami), but I must admit that in terms of quality of the meat Miami is the best place. Not when it comes to the service, that one was in both other locations by far better, but it might also be related to the mentality of the city and... More

This place has things more together than at our last visit two years ago, which wasn't that bad. The improvement is that the staff seems less harassed; although the room is busy the servers never seem to busy to discuss whatever meat they're offering is and whether it will be to your liking. The tables are at a comfortable distance,... More

Loads of salad, loads of meat. I got full really easily even after heeding warnings about not overdoing it on the salad. It's grilled meat and nothing to write home about. Just make sure you are confident you are going to get your money's worth at just shy of $50 a go. I couldn't fault the service, everyone was very... More
