“Food is excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

I have been several times over the last couple years and have had a fantastic experience each time. The service is always great. The food variety and taste is superb. I prefer the food at Fogo to most higher end steakhouses where I have eaten. Excellent wine selection. The price is steep at ~$50/person, but if you go at lunch it is the exact same offerings at 1/2 price, which makes it reasonable. Unfortunately, lunch is only Monday-Friday. Devour Downtown is a great time to go, with lunch prices for dinner and it includes dessert, but reservations go fast and walk-in waits can be 2+ hours at peak times. If you compare the cost to other high end restaurants I think it is a fair value with more variety.

“If they had 6 stars...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

...I would give it to them. This is my new most absolutely favorite place to eat! It is a carnivore's delight! Sullivan's used to be my fave but move over here comes Fogo! Always order a Caparainja (sp?) and then move on the the freshest most interesting salad bar. They have hearts of palm which you never see and the basil sauce is to die for! Of course what is better than cute guys in gauchos bringing sizzling perfectly seasoned meat on a skewer to your table and slicing a piece off to your liking? My mouth is watering just thinking about it. The service is excellent! If you like meat...GO! You won't regret it!

“Expensive but tasty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

The food at Fogo is amazing! This is the place to go if you have a taste for meat! The food is good, but it is not a cheap date so check the website to get an idea of the prices before you go if you are questioning the value of the meal.

“LOVE IT!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

We only go once or twice a year as a treat to ourselves. We have never had a bad experience and the staff are always very informative! If you like fresh and delicious and have the $ to splurge...I highly recommend this place to eat! Word of warning! COME HUNGRY! Tons of fresh items on the salad bar and a ridiculous amount of meat to choose from, you wil NOT be disappointed! Enjoy!

“Well worth the $$”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

My husband and I went here for our one year wedding anniversary and while it was expensive it is definitely worth the money. The service was great and the food was absolutely amazing. While we wouldn't be able to go all the time, it is definitely on our list of places to go for special occasions and a much needed romantic date night. Can't wait to go back! :D
