Description: Fogo de ChaoR (fo-go dee shoun), is an authentic Southern Brazilian steakhouse. In 1979, FogoR began sharing the gaucho way of preparing meat in Porto Alegre, Brazil. Today, our gaucho chefs still expertly grill each of our 16 cuts of meat and offer you continuous tableside service. We invite you to enjoy the delicious preparations of our gaucho chefs along with our gourmet salad bar, authentic Brazilian side dishes, and award-winning wine list.

My husband and I chose Fogo de Chao in Baltimore to host our small wedding reception in one of their private back rooms. We chose Fogo for a few reasons. One we have always received exceptional service and delicious food at every visit and two it's where my husband had taken me to dinner the night he proposed. Jair the... More

It was a great experience, I really did enjoy my dinner there. There is a lot to get used to because waiters are constantly coming to the table. But, once you get used to the system, it gets better. I love how they have the salad bar set up and when they bring the sides to the table. Go there... More

The salad bar offers a great selection of meats and cheese. A friendly atmosphere with endless amounts of steak cooked to perfection... Just go.

So after reading mixed reviews, I took the challenge. Here goes: The valet parking has a smooth operation. Upon entering, the overall ambiance was reminiscent of a school cafeteria so forget a "quiet" dinner if that is your intent. Our server did not seem motiviated but rather flustered by being overwhelmed. We had to ask for things instead of having... More

Been to several Fogo de Chao before. This one was a bit disappointing because both the salad bar and the barbecue selection seemed a bit limited. Plus, no seafood in baltimore on the grill is also disappointing. Some of the meat that was served rare was overcooked and dried out. I did get some rare cuts of the fillet and... More

Although I do not eat red meat,the restaurant has added a seafood entree and appetizer to the menu and the salad bar satisfies the needs of a true vegan. The sea bass was wonderful and the service and knowledge of the servers regarding the wine list was commendable. I've been here twice over the last 2 months for work functions... More

We had to return for another go at the fantastic salad bar and endless skewers of grilled meats. If it's possible, we had an even better time than our last visit. The salad bar has more varieties of salad, veggies, meats and cheese and smoked salmon than we've ever seen anywhere else. And then there are the waiters bringing around... More

So, we showed up at 4:30, and having been to several Fogo De Chao locations before, we were sorely disappointed. The meat was medium to well done, with nothing rare in site. Then 5 o'clock hit.. the crowds came and the selection became the awesome variety we were used too! The fraldinha that we hadn't seen showed up, and we... More

My husband has been telling me about Fogo de Chao since he ate there in Atlanta. For my birthday he planned a nice day at the Baltimore Inner Harbor and he took me to Lunch at Fogo. First, the salad bar, fresh and fantastic. Prosciutto and fresh mozzarella AMAZING. Then on to sides served table-side and the perfectly cooked skewers... More

It lived up to our meat expectations. Come with the knowledge that you will eat a lot of great cuts of steak. Stay away from the salad bar. It looked great and I did do a small sample. But I know I wanted to leave room for the awesome meats. All you can eat is the only way to go... More
