We went on Thanksgiving and enjoyed the extended menu that included turkey. Thank goodness we did as all the other meats presented were nothing special. I always asked for medium rare and received meat cuts that ranged from shoe leather burnt to cold and purple raw. I visited the ladies room during our visit and was very disturbed to find... More

Classy atmosphere and well priced Every single steak cut was delicious, the buffet one of the best in the twin cities! There is no buffet like this one anywhere here. All kept clean. A must have is the caipirinha! The service was magnificient. It was not my first time, everytime I go I bring new friends.

Recently stopped for dinner- this was my first time in the resteraunt, but have had dinner several times in a Texas de Brazil in Memphis. Texas de Brazil's salad bar is much more extensive with soups and more variety, such that often I would just have the salad bar. At Fogo I was in the odd situation that the salad... More

This is usually my favorite restaurant when I come to St Paul, with great service and food. What a disappointing visit! The service was slow and the meats we selected were dry. We requested lamb and had to wait over 40 minutes for it. I guess they were having a bad night. Will not be returning.

Always great service by the team of gauchos and servers at FC! This is a meat lovers paradise! My favorite is the beef ancho! Rib eye, seasoned to perfection! Whether you go for lunch or dinner, you will get a great meal, with excellent table service by the staff at FC. By the way, I have enjoyed FC in Chicago,... More

We only go here during restaurant week ($30 meal + dessert) or during lunch for cost savings. Salad bar has plenty of options and a great selection of quality cheeses, greens and veggies. Be careful though, and don't fill up too much before taking part in the meat feast to follow! Great place for a date or family meal. You... More
