It was my husbands choice to dine at Fogo de Chao and I wasn't sure I would like this type of dining. What an amazing experience. The service was exceptional and the manager came to our table as well to see how we were enjoying our meal. All of the staff were very attentive and the bartender even allowed us... More

We came here on 10/15/14 for a little over indulging date night. We had heard a lot about this place and thought it would be a fun and different experience. We reserved a table online on their website because from what weve heard thats the way to do it. We valet our car (10$) right at the front door and... More

If you love me this is a place to go, and the salad bar isn't too shabby either. The only bad thing about this restaurant is that the tables are far too close together especially with the wandering servers. Even though the salad bar is still quite nice they have changed it from the original and removed the shrimp; now... More

I think the reason that the meat tastes so good at Fogo De Chao is that they cook the meat on skewers and serve it one slice at a time. They aren't cooking the whole slab of meat all the way through, just enough to cook the outer layer, which means that each bite you get is seasoned and has... More

On a positive note the food was good and the company enjoyable. Service was not good. Waiters forgot several requests, waitress need two prompts and 15 minutes to bring an after dinner drink menu, deserts took over 20 minutes to arrive and this was when the restaurant was less than half full and winding down for the night. Another disappointment... More

First off, I want to say how impressed I was that I snagged a 7pm Friday reservation the day before we dined here. I booked through opentable.com (which I highly recommend based on ease and rewards). This place is huge and busy, but the workers know there way around and the style of service is perfectly suited. The wait staff... More
