“Fantastic meal in South Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

The Fogo de Chao experience is a memorable one.
When you arrive and settle into the pleasant surroundings with a drink you are then encouraged to enjoy the great selection from the salad bar. Once you are ready to sample the various meat cuts you flip over the card on the table (like a beer mat) to the green side and the waiters bring you the different meats to enjoy.
The food is excellent (especially the meat) while service is very friendly and courteous.
It;s not cheap (especially after 7% sales tax and 18% service) but I would recommend the restaurant as a novel experience for us carnivores!

“Wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

All you can eat menu! Great Brazilian steakhouse with several kinds of meat. The caipirinha were good, even if I didn't understand the match with the meat.

“Total Perfection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

The whole experience was just perfect; ambiance, service and the food. Definitely a meat lover's heaven. Can't say enough about the food and the service. We had a vegetarian in our group and she thought the salad bar was just as good. Yes, it is expensive, but a great place for special occasions. Key lime pie and strawberry cheesecake is a great way to seal the deal; that's if you have any room for dessert.

“Great as usual”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

We've been here several times and the best way to describe it is "a quality meatfest experience combined with impeccable service". If you like a fantastic range of meats in terms both quality and quantity you cannot go wrong here. Well worth the money and if you have room after all that meat try the key lime pie.

“The Best Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

I had gone to a Brazillian Steak house in Vegas before but this place was even better! My boyfriend is a big carnivore and he was so stuffed we walked back to our hotel. The services was spectacular, the food was impeccable! We had the best servers, lots of laughs were had and not one of us left wanting for anything! Next time I am in Miami Beach, I can be sure I will be going to Fogo De Chao again!
