“Save yourself for dinner it will be worth it!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013 via mobile

Lots of great cuts of meat, all rare to medium and rightly so. It would be wrong to cook these gorgeous pieces of meat well done. Tip, although the salad is lovely, fresh and much variety do not eat too much, wait for your mains. There are so many delicious pieces of meat to try along with the yummy fresh mash potatoes with cheese on top! Service was very good abc the concept of the green/red cards works very well. When you want more flip your card to green, when you are ready to stop and tuck in to what is on your plate flip your card over to red!! Overall a great dining experience :-)

“Fantastic place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

This is a great place for an upmarket meal out. The salad bar is huge and extremely varied. The service is impeccable and the meat delicious. Also the cheese bread is to die for-I will be looking up the recipe for that! Personally I think that $48.50 per head for all you can eat is good value but the cost can spiral out of control with wine,dessert,digestifs etc. If you're wanting to splash out this place is well worth a visit!

“Fantastic meat and great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013 via mobile

If you like brasilian churasco, Fogo de Chao is a sure choice. Meat was greatly prepared and the overall experience during the lunch was excellent. It might come a little pricey for a group of people, but it is really worth the money. Drinks are not included in the price of churasco menu.

“Lots of rare meat”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

Attended for business lunch. The salad bar is full with assorted Side dishes. Enough for a complete meal. The entree was assortment of beef, all rare and cut or placed on your plate from large sequer

Fine but price if you don't enjoy the meat

“Fogo de chao cannot maintain a consistent level across their chain”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

I have eaten at Fog De Chao for the first time in Austin Texas, and was blown away!
Then I have tried out several other restaurants of the chain, but failed to relive my first experience.
I have tries Washington DC, Baltimore, and they were mediocre a best.
This week I have tried South beach Miami, and boy was that a disappointment.
The pork chops were horrible . The lamb was pretty bad as well. All meats extra salty, and dry. It was impossible to get a medium portion, let alone rare.
There wasn't a cut of meat I liked.
A horrible experience overall.
Service was good, but cannot make up for the horrible food.
