I don't think there is a better restaurant I have ever eaten at in my entire life. The experience is one I will never forget. The service was outstanding. All of the meat selections were outstanding and well worth the price you pay. The salad bar had excellent choices! You definitely need to try this restaurant once in your lifetime.

Great meat selection. Everything was delicious. You are served small serving of different types of meat. Service was excellent. Every time you run out of sides, there is someone that magically brings you another plate. My baby loved the crispy polenta, they definitely kept it coming and placed it in front of my baby as she is the one mainly... More

A carnivores paradise. Took my office staff there when we were in Philly at a conference. Amazing selection of meats and a salad bar that really shouldnt be called a "salad bar" because it was so much more than that. Friendly and attentive service. HUGE wine list- try one of the Spanish riojas. Plan on going to the one in... More

This is a great upscale Brazilian style steakhouse that delivers consistently excellent food and service. It is a good choice for special occasions or for a group of people who are meat lovers. The salad bar has many varied selections, the meat choices are many and the desserts are decadent. Give yourself plenty of time for dinner and go hungry... More

Not kid friendly! But that's ok! This kind of classy establishment is not for kids! Amazing food prepared by the BEST chefs on the planet! Make reservations way in advance and prepare for a night of tantalizing food! Salad bar is amazing but don't fill up on that! What I want to know is how their meat is of such... More

Meat, meat, and more meat. Whenever there is a special occasion, I book at Fogo. The selection and quality of their meat is astounding. And although the major attraction is the all you can eat meat selections, served by Brazilian attired gauchos, their salad bar is also top quality with a great selection of salads, cheeses, and other gourmet items....

If you like to eat, you will LOVE Fogo. Come hungry, and pace yourself. Don't go all-in on the salad bar - it is tempting because there are many great choices. Treat the salad bar as your "side dishes" and then have a seat. Then give the "green light" for the meat ballet to start. Once it begins, your table... More

My husband wanted to eat meat, so we selected this popular restaurant. The location is very beautiful, apparently an old bank building, and service was pleasant though there seems to be a tendency to upsell. Right before we were set to dine, the waitress offered a "special" shrimp cocktail that we declined. The salad bar was average, but the meat... More
