Today, our gaucho chefs still expertly grill each of our 16 cuts of meat and offer you continuous tableside service.

“Great Brazilian ambience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

You get a coin shaped object that is green on one side and red on the other side. As long as the green side is facing up waiters come by with a rich variety of meat. a great salad bar is also available for those so inclined. But it's the beef, lamb, ckicken sausage that has my mouth watering even now.

“Never ending meat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

If you are a connoisseur of meat than this is the place for you located right in the heart of the Inner Harbor entertainment area. If you have been to the DC location than this one is slightly smaller inside and at time especially during Restaurant week they pack the dining room with too many people making it seem a little cramp.... Tip Restaurant week the price is slashed in 1/2 once again the crowd maybe a turnoff but unlike other restaurants you have access to thier regular array of meats brought to your table.

“Can any place be better?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

This place is all you can eat for 50 dollars. Salad bar is very complete and lots of good things. You get all you can eat meat here and it is cooked perfect. You get as much as you want and it is all prime cut. I love this place and it is my new favorite place.

“A really cool place and I am a vegetarian!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

So, went here for a business dinner with my husbands company. I eat no meat. This place is all about meat. BUT I loved it. I had the salad bar-really a bad name for it-amazing selections and plenty to choose from-
The sides are also fantastic-the little cheese popover rolls are a mouthful of wow and the polenta sticks are amazing- The place is really busy- lots of staff flying around and all the guys carrying the meat around on skewers- It is really cool. I did see kids there- and plan on taking our daughter there- BUT do not take kids there if they can't stay in their seats- this is NOT the place for kids to be running around (is any restaurant???) at all. They will get run over. If kids can sit they they will love it too. I highly recommend.

“If you get to choose your last meal on Earth.. Make it at Fogo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

I'm going to skip the reason I went there... Eat at this restaurant period... Wow.... Wow... Wow! Let's start from the top, everything is at the peak of freshness, and the staff is so attentive it's scary. The food taste as if they prepped for you 48 hours in advance, the taste of the meat ... Seasoned to the bone... Chicken, Lamb, Beef... Wow.... Again, for those that are bucket list foodies that say Screw my doctor, I'm eating what I want... Make this your #1 spot... Trust me!
