we wanted to try this restaurant because we heard is was better than Chima Brazilian Restaurant. The atmosphere was very comparable, however, the salad bar was limiting and the meats were not as plentiful. However,, it was a very nice dining experience. The wait staff were very attentive and the meats were cooked to perfection. However, they did not have... More

Had graduation dinner for 25 people and the meal was pricey but great. Service also very good. Manager came over to ensure we were satisfied.

I had heard good things about this place so my fiancé and I decided to give it a try on our anniversary. From the minute we arrived until the moment we left the staff was attentive and helpful. Hands down the best customer service that we have encountered in a very long time. The food, if u love meat (... More

I must preface my review by stating that I do eat red meat, but not very frequently. When my youngest son, who turned 23 yesterday wanted to celebrate his birthday by going to Fogo De Chao I was indeed a bit apprehensive. "Do they have Chilean Sea Bass...is there chicken on the menu?" Our oldest son took the train down... More

My daughter just graduated high school and instead of having a big party she wanted to go to dinner. This trip included 7 of us. We had a great time and the waiter even brought out her dessert with a candle and "Congratulations!" written around the edge of the plate. Everyone loved the food - the meat was a little... More

Fogo de Chao is one of those special places we like to go to once or twice a year. The food is excellent and I don't think I have ever been at a place with better service. The waiters and gauchos will go out of their way to ensure that you have the best dining experience. The varieties of meats... More

I took three clients to this restaurant. I am not much of a "meat" person but they are. They had never experienced Fogo de Chao even though there is one in our state. They loved it. The meat was excellent, the price expensive but worth it. You can really just eat out of the wonderful salad bar they have.

I have been to my share of these kind of places, but this one takes the cake. I will start by saying, we passed on the salad bar altogether. It looked amazing, but this was a guys weekend and we didn't want to waste any room with salad. The meat was amazing. We all started with some drinks, they have... More

Spoiler alert: this is not a find dining experience. More about loading up on food until you burst. Start with the salad bar. Not a meat eater,there is an abundance of items to satisfy for your meatless meal. Nothing extraordinary; food was fresh and good. The meat service, my husband said, made him feel rushed, agitated and uncomfortable even though... More

Our first trip to Fogo De Chao in Phila, As with all restaurant in the city parking is at a premium and harder with my F250. Salad Bar was very good and you can really fill up on that. The waiters are all over the place and very good at keeping your plate full. Good system with flip cards to... More
