“This place is a 10!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

This was mine an my fiancés first time dining at this location, & let me tell you it was absolutely amazing! The place is beautiful & the staff was wonderful! We originally made reservations for 10pm, but somehow they didn't have it in their system. (I let my fiancé make the reservation & I think he may have done something wrong lol) although they didn't have our reservation we waited no more then 5 min. We were seated & right away son came over to our table & greeted us. He even helped recommend a martini for my fiancé. He was funny & very helpful. Everyone we came in contact with during our night out was extremely friendly. The salad bar was great. Lots of different lunch meats, cheeses, pasta salads etc. The meat selection was to die for. I read some of the other reviews & complaints about the food & salad bar & I was shocked to hear such negative reviews. We will defiantly be back to Fogo! Thanks again to the great staff who made our dinner so enjoyable!

“Excellent Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014

Come hungry. I've been to a couple of their other locations but this one stands above the rest. The service was phenomenal. The food is always top notch but the attention to detail by the staff was remarkable.

“you want beef?”

consistent "what you see is what you get" restaurant. salad bar is fantastic, but you really need an appetite to feel you capitalised on the experience.
