Although food was excellent, we felt that service was not as we had experienced before! The restaurant was not that busy, but they kept pressuring us by asking if they could take away our plates!! We were there just for over an hour, but felt the pressure from them to leave. Further, at times, it took a long time for... More

Went to have a good time with my friends and to try some thing new. I am not usually a fan of anything except chicken but I really enjoyed everything they had to offer. I got to try new things I never had to opportunities to try. I had great service from friendly and helpful servers and it has a... More

Lucky for us, we arrived in Minneapolis with reservations already in place for this beautifully appointed Brazilian steakhouse. We had exceptional service for our group of 10 for drinks and other requests. I had never been to this specific chain, and was very pleased with their service of meats and wonderful salad bar. The meats were well prepared and varied,... More

We went out for a get together the restaurant/bathrooms were spotless. Servers were outstanding got what I needed. I asked for a special cut and was given it. I felt like they went above and beyond what was expected or even necessary. The salad bar had a variety of options. I left wanting more and will definitely be back

The only time I've ever see that many people and that much food in the same room was Vegas. This place has the process down pat. That being said the food lacked nothing.

I am from out state and finally visited Fogo after all the hype. Waited an hour to get in. Once seated the food is all over. But it seemed it was quantity over quality. Too many things were overdone and some of the steak tasted off. I had a few tasty bites, but overall was underwhelmed and was a bit... More

We had a group of four on a Saturday night - it is highly recommended to get a reservation a week in advance as that is their busiest time. Food and service is always great. They had a slight issue with one of the chicken breast preparations - a little overdone and dry. The lamb chops were as good as... More

while they do try to make this a classic brazilian churasscaria, they seem to focus on the quantity rather than the quality of the meats. while the meat and other dishes (salads and sides) are not bad, they don't justify the price. sure, it's cool to have the red and green signs on your table to get essentially unlimited meat,...
