The night we went, it was rather busy. The food was decent, but, unfortunately, I was not terribly impressed. There's a similar-style restaurant nearby that I prefer. When you pay the amount this restaurant charges, you expect top-notch taste and offerings. The meat was not offered as frequently as I would have liked. I found myself looking for the servers...

A grand experience for the meat lover! Dined with a large group, so we had a private room and dedicated servers, who were attentive and friendly. Started with the market bar, which was impressively diverse--everything from sliced salmon to Brazilian stew, and just about any vegetable one could imagine. On return to the table, the parade of meats began. I... More

Excellent food! Even the buffet area features exotics, from mushroom medleys, hearth of palms, aged cheese's, fruits, and other goodies. The wine selections is awesome other than the local American wines it also has emphasis on Europeans and South Americans selection. The atmosphere is well appointed and the service is excellent. The best part of the dining experience is the... More

Fogo De Chao, while a chain restaurant, has a uniqueness not only due to their food, but also how much each one varies from location to location. The one is DC is unique- a beautiful corner building a few blocks from the White House. Very stately, with a warmth and classy touch. The food is truly special. The "Market" table... More

This was not my first Fogo experience. My boyfriend has worked at the Orlando location for 4 years, so I well know what a Fogo experience should be like. This was different. We were introduced by Felipe who mentioned he would be taking care of us. Did not see him once throughout the whole lunch, the icing on the cake... More

Well, this was our third visit to this location. Our 8 year old daughter rounded out our party of three. The salad bar was fantastic! Just a very diverse mix of fruits and vegetables. Of course the meat was prime! We ate until our hearts content.

I'd always wanted to try a Brazilian steakhouse and my husband finally relented on this DC trip. The service was absolutely great. When you turned your card to green, several guys would run over with all different options of delicious meat. You do not leave this place hungry. They also have an incredible salad bar with cheeses and very nice... More

Went here with husband & 3 very hungry teenagers. Unbelievable! Unlimited delicious salad to start and then men come round with great big joints of meat (Sirloin, lamb, pork, chicken) Children thought they had died & gone to heaven! A must go.

We invite you to enjoy the delicious preparations of our gaucho chefs along with our gourmet salad bar, authentic Brazilian side dishes, and award-winning wine list.
