I was borne in Brazil and I've been to many Brazilian steakhouses and can state with confidence that Fogo is the best. They have the best salad bar, best meat quality/selection, great service, great wine list and great drinks. The wine selection is really on par with a nice steakhouse with a strong focus on South America as it should... More

I have been to these Brazillian 'meat fests' before and knew what was about to happen. However, It's the peripherals that make this restaurant so special. I have not seen such an extensive salad bar and the side dishes were a constant stream to the table. As you'd expect the wine list was eclectic and have a fine selection worldwide.The... More

Top class services married with good food. One of the few restaurants in Miami where I was happy to pay 18% gratuity. Wine reasonably priced and food very good value. Don't go to Texas de Brazilar come here it's ten times better.

As all Fogo de Chao, the Miami beach location is excellent. Great service, wine selection, drinks & the best beef in Miami. Would be best to make a reservation as it become very busy on weekends.

If you know your Brazilian steak house - Churrascaria - you will like this place. It has everything your Churrascaria in Brazil would have. Service is great and choice of salads is as good as the meat. So even the vegiterian among us was happy, not bad for a steak house. Take your time and don't rush it here. Enjoy.

What a memorable experience !!! Wow, I have never seen anything like this before. You sit down they provide you with two-sided coasters. One side is a "good to go- bring on the meat" & the other one is "I am currently indulging in your amazing food- please come back later with more". All the waiters are very professional &... More

The quality of the meat served here is very good. What I didn't like is the 18% gratuity added automatically to our bill especially 'cause the service was average and surely not the best we've experienced in Florida (I.e. we've had to ask for more water as no refill was offered!). The buffet costs $48.50 per adult and 1/2 price... More

First things first, I'm the realest. But seriously - stay away from the salad bar. It's tempting, and that why it's there. When you come to Fogo de Chao you're not coming for the salad bar, you're coming for the meat. You pay a (reasonable) set fee, and then waiters come round throughout the evening with different cuts of meat... More

I have been here many many times and I have always loved it! You need to be hungry and a beef lover, of course. The wine list is great and service always on top of everything. It could be a little expensive but every $$$ is deserved!
