“Expensive as in Brazil”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

If you want a nice steak house like in Brazil, itis the place, but the prices are even higher than in Brazil. If you are coming to Brazil save your money to spend here.

“Amazing, wonderful, excellent! One of our best meals in the USA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

I've been to many authentic Brazilian churrascarias when in Brazil, and others in Europe that I've been to have lacked. However I wanted to take my boyfriend to experience one as I've always said about how fab the ones in Brazil I went to were. Whilst staying in SoBe we noticed that this was rated as number 2 on Trip Advisor so decided to have a meal there.

It was one of the best two meals we had in the USA during our 3 week trip. The service was second to none and blew me away with the attentiveness and authenticity of the staff. The food was phenomenal, my boyfriend was so blown away he said that he wanted to stand up and applaud the chefs he was that amazed. He's never said such a thing before! We can personally recommend the lamb chops, oh to be able to have one of those during a meal in the UK I can only wish!

My boyfriend is going to go to the Vegas Fogo de Chao when he goes back in March and we intend to visit the NYC location in April, as we hope they are as wonderful as the SoBe restaurant.

I'd like to encourage the company directors of Fogo de Chao to open a site in London ASAP, I would happily ensure you would have many British customers to fill your restaurant for many months!

Thank you to all of the staff at South Beach Fogo de Chao, you're fabulous!
