“Great Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

We visited Fogo De Chao in Monneapolis for our anniversary. I was blown away by the service and great food. A little spendy but definitely worth the price. We were complimented with an anniversary dessert at the end of our meal. The wait staff was absolutely top notch. Can't wait to go again sometime.

“What a treat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Stopped in here thinking there was no way we could get a table without reservations on a Friday night. But we were able to get a table in the back. This was almost a problem because the guys didn't come around often with the different types of meat, but our waiter was AWESOME - he would come by, ask us what we wanted next, and then send one of the guys our way. I have been to Brazil and this is genuine food.

“Meat meat meat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013 via mobile

We tried this place during restaurant week so the cost was much lower for the normal experience...and it is. An experience! I'm not much of a steak person but the filet was to die for! Good salad bar but next time I wouldn't waste as much stomach room. :). Had key lime pie for dessert and that was a perfect finish to a great meal.

“Way over rated and not worth the price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

I went to Fogo de Chao in Minneapolis expecting a wonderful meal. I have to admit, I am a meat lover so this seemed like the place for me! Sadly, the restaurant did even come close to meeting expecatations. A Lackluster interior, strange salad bar and over cooked meat, ho hum service was what we got for a hefty price! All the meat basically tasted exactly the same - much was over cooked for my tastes. The salad bar which admittedly some love, left me underwhelmed. I have no idea what the buzz is about this restaurant - perhaps we got there on a bad night - I don't think so as I have heard others share my sentiments! Go at your own peril and expect to pay dearly!
