Delicious. Entertaining. Wonderful service. If you can go for lunch you'll save a lot of money. They had just opened up Sunday lunch when we made our reservations. Saved $20 per person, and that was considerable with 10 people in our party. Our table was ready when we got there and we were... read more

Made a reservation for 7:30pm and did not get sat for over 40 minutes. My party of 4 left fearing a longer wait. Took off work early to be on time and the management clearly does not know their own capacity as to make reservations appropriately. A fine dining place should know better. Management needs to review their and or... More

My daughter has wanted to go here for a long time so we took her on her birthday. We did the full Market Table experience. This involves a salad bar with a wide variety of foods that are typical Brazilian foods and some were originally borrowed from other cultures. It could have been filling in itself and is available that... More

This has to be one of my favorite restaurants to visit in the Indianapolis area. The service is always awesome and the food is outstanding.

Decide to splurge here on a one-night business trip in downtown Indianapolis and this was walking distance from my hotel. For the record, I have been to Brasil 3 times (in 2008 I lived there for 6 months) so I know my way around a churrascaria. This place was awesome. The caipirinha I ordered at the bar was superb...$13 but... More

The service is wonderful. It is really a good deal if you can check them out during "Devour Indy". Don't fill up on the salad bar, you want to leave plenty of room for all of the meat selections. Bacon wrapped chicken, bacon wrapped filet....you name it they have it. You won't have room for dessert so just get it... More

Really good service. Salad bar was great. Make sure you eat light all day long to take full advantage of this gem. Creme brulee was amazing.

Having never been to a Brazilian steakhouse, I was excited. Everything was delicious. I was a bit overwhelmed with the red and green cards as servers were bring meat even when our cards were on red. Other than feeling a little rushed the food was great, the wait staff were attentive. The manager help select a great wine.

I visit Fogo De Chao in Indy once per year while attending Gen Con. Great food and good service. A bit expensive but well worth it.

While the atmosphere was nice, as well as the restrooms, our server and steak were not. When we told the server we wanted the Rodizio, he gave us a blank stare and said "I don't think we have that here". The rodizio is the meats going around to the different tables, which is what Brazilian steakhouses commonly have. He also... More
