Amazing food and fun experience!

I went here with friends, and we had a great time. The food was so good as well as the service. I recommend obviously bringing a big appetite when you go and, yes it's a bit on the pricey side, but what you get is well worth it!

First time at Fogo. Was recommended to us by friends. We had a reservation and were immediately seated. Our waitress was immediately at our table helping with coats and did an excellent job of explaining the experience and different courses. The salad and side bar had a number of options but I did not get too many based on recommendations... More

We went for dinner on a Sunday night and the place was packed! The meat selection was great, the service was great, but it was a bit pricey. Might go back at some point, but not any time real soon.

By far the best of the Brazalian Steakhouse chains. Minneapolis waited a long time for a Fogo de Chao and it was worth the wait. The food, the atmosphere, the wait staff and service are excellent. You can even bring a vegetarian as their large salad bar is the best in the area. The selection of cheeses is superb and... More

You will find a huge salad bar that is really great, however, don't fill yourself up on the salad. You will experience as much as you want to eat of very well cooked cuts of meat. Brought to your table on the skeurs (sp?) that they were grilled on. You will be offerred many different types of meat, cut off... More

I would have giving this 5 stars based on my first experience, but I took a star off for last night. The difference is that the first time I went on a weekend when they were packed. There was so much meat being brought out by so many servers, that you always had a big selection and it was always... More

This was one of the fanciest, most delicious meals I've had (and I've ben to places), an ethnic experience for a white girl like me, and the staff treated my family and I like royalty. The place was immaculately clean, decorated with fresh tropical flowers, and the price was all worth it. Amazing experience, mouth-watering food. You need to go!
