This restaurant is one of the best in the city. The locations is great and they also have valet parking. Not only do they do a fantastic job with their food, but they are completely dedicated to providing you with a great experience regardless of the occasion. My husband and I dine here every anniversary. Highly recommended!

A good example of this well-known chain. An elegant space plays host to a fulsome salad bar and an array of delicious meats served on sabres at your table. Bring your appetite.

If you haven't experienced a Brazilian steakhouse, please do so. The market table alone has so much to chose from, but the variety of meats offered tableside, on a skewer, is amazing. Everything was cooked to perfection. Bring an appetite!!!

I travel to Philadelphia, 3 to 4 times a year. I always try to get to this restaurant if at all possible. The salad bar options are so varied, that you have to be careful not to fill up before the rest of you meal. The meats that are offered are great, I prefer the house beef cut along with... More

This was a beautiful place filled with great decor. The walls were stacked with wine bottles and the wait staff was impeccably dressed. They gave us a reservation (for 4 people) during a very busy weekend with less than an hour's notice. We were seated, comfortably, right away, and the waitress was super informative and patient. The food was delicious... More

I am a petite woman so I can't eat a lot of meat at one sitting. However, what I did eat was very good. I am not really well-informed about the various cuts of meat and the relative desirability of each type, but there were so many choices that I am certain every picky carnivore would be quite pleased. Some... More

Salad alone is worth the trip. Philadelphia Fogo has a very nice atmosphere(in an old building. Have also been to DC & Baltimore sites. Meats are rare to medium at all Fogo locations. Sides are always good also. To save money, go for lunch!

A friend took me here for a Birthday Dinner. I LOVED the attentiveness of the servers. I was very impressed with the salad bar, then came the MEAT! It was all very good, but became a bit overwhelming with server after server coming to the table. Thank goodness for the red button! I enjoyed it, but I don't think I'm... More

I haven't gotten there yet. Some friends brag about the hospitality. They shared that when you order you have a card to tell the waiter "more" or N"No more right now.
