Impeccable!

Each visit is always a new experience - to my palate! It is almost as if you are actually in Brazil. Creme brule and the Lime drink tops off the dinner perfectly.

Typical of Brazilian steakhouses, this one offered a bit of differential to those visited elsewhere. Upscale, rotating service staff (all exceptional) and over-attentiveness to preferences of offerings, Fogo de Chao is the best we have dined with. In a trendy area, front-door valet parking, and exceptional food and staff, don't miss this if the Brazilian style of steakhouse dining is... More

The food and service are amazing and the drinks are good and strong. Make sure you have room because that food just keeps coming and coming. Definitely would eat there again.

Went here for lunch and as we expected, place was full. Fortunately didn't have to wait for long to get a table. Food served is fabulous with a huge salad bar.

we went here for our 20th wedding anniversary and were so impressed. I'm gluten intolerant and the manager took me through the salad bar and the meat to tell me what would be safe for me to eat not only that he discretely shared that with the wait staff and all of them were very mindful of my food allergy....

My boyfriend & I dined at Fogo de Chao for the first time during Kansas City Restaurant Week January 2015. We were seated 5 minutes before our reserved time of 8:30pm which was nice. The salad bar was yummy. I particularly liked the sliced tomatoes & cheese and my boyfriend enjoyed the scalloped potatoes. The bread in the basket was... More

We have wanted to try this place for a while and finally made it. The service was fantastic with the entire staff working together to keep your needs met. The food was delicious! There was a huge salad bar with great selection and good sides to go with the meal. They have a huge meat selection and keep bringing it... More

I'm not a meat-eater. That said, Fogo de Chao is one of my favorite "special" places to go on special occasions. The vegetable & salad bar is the best of its kind in KC, bar none. The variety and uniqueness of its offerings surpasses any arrangement of sides you'll find offered in any other restaurant: fresh mozzarella, proscuitto, chilled grilled... More

We were a party or 10 and we all had a great time, the service was excellent and a very extended wine list. The best steak was the garlic picaña and the beef ribs.

Sat at crowded table; had to lean over when served; my wife consistently received meat with hard outer crust; really dampened our 40th anniversary
