“Fell at home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

It reminded me when it starded in my hometown (Porto Alegre - Brazil). Waiters are very polite and the meat very good, or excellent. Just like old times home.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

We went for lunch on 3/28/13 and it was an excellent choice. Plenty of good quality food, and the meat to die for. I will be back.

“Wonderful meal and terrific atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

The restaurant is beautiful and everything was perfect, from the apetizers to the end of the meal. The waiters were great, even the restrooms. You start with a beautiful salad bar as apetizers, and a real one, complete with asperagus, smoked salmon, all kinds of salads, cheeses etc. Absolutely delicious.

Then you choose to have different meats, all you can eat, with fried bananas, delicious mashed potatoes and friend polentas, as much as you can eat also. Very good wine list.

Impeccable, we will certainly go back. Their specialty is Picanha, rumsteack marinated and salted, delicious,

“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.
