Were in town with brother for Vikings/Pats game. Much better than any Brazilian restaurant in Winnipeg. Salad bar and sides are amazing with favourites which included beets, smoked salmon, great cheeses, caesar salad, scalloped potatoes and black beans. Meats are exceptional, hot & cooked to your liking (rare - well done). Highlights are lamb, chicken wrapped in bacon, garlic sirloin... More

Fogo de chao is simply an amazing restaurant. The cuts of meat are delicious. The service is impeccable. The servers were extremely attentive. My glass was never empty. They kept bringing extra cheese bread. The salad bar had plenty of items. I am never disappointed whenever I go to Fogo. I would not hesitate to go back to this restaurant... More

We recently had one of the Best restaurant experiences downtown Minneapolis, Sept 14th, starting with the valet parking, fast service, one of the best salad bars downtown, to the endless supply of perfectly cooked steaks, (beef/lamb/chicken/pork/ and sausages). The wait staff was excellent and every entree was presented to us with full explanation of our choice. The meat came out... More

We celebrated by son's 25th birthday by dining here recently. He is an extreme carnivore so I could think of nowhere better to take him. F de C did not disappoint! The meat was delicious, plentiful and always served hot. The sides were nothing special but who comes here for the sides? The staff were always attentive and pleasant. They... More

It was our first time here so we didn't know what to expect. The waiters go over everything and are so nice! If there isn't a meat you've tried yet all you have to do is request it. I didn't think the sides that were offered were that spectacular and the buffet was mediocre. But all the meat was SO... More

Not much to say other than I came I saw I ate more food then I thought possible and it was delicious. The lamb is my favorite but there are so many good choices you can't go wrong. The price is a little bit much but for a special treat it is worth it.

Some of the best meat you'll eat. Fun setting.. You receive a peice of card board in the shape of a circle and on one side it's red and the otherside is green. They're guys that walk around with the meat on the stick and if the circle is showing green they will stop by can give you cut of... More

I was nervous to go here as I knew the dining style was unique, but due to a friend's birthday, we went. It was fantastic! I'd definitely recommend to anyone.

Love the salad bar, so many choices! The meat is all delicious, sides wonderful, and my birthday cheesecake was excellent, the piece was big enough for two.
