“Meat, meat, meat.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013

Laid back atmosphere, very reasonable prices and fantastic cuts of grilled meat. Wash it down with a glass of beer and you have all the ingredients for a guys night out.

“Outclasses Carnivore and any meat eating joint without a doubt!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013

Our family, the company I work for have been to Fogo countless times and we NEVER tire. A large choice of salads to choose from, countless cuts of fresh succulent meat. What more can a carnivore ask for? Topped off by friendly Johnny Zanrosso who makes sure he never forgets his regulars. How many times have we sung "Happy Birthday" at Fogo? How many times have we arrived without a reservation and found a table? Always! That is most endearing. You only have to recommend this restaurant once and the person is hooked. I'm glad that they are growing because they DESERVE it, however with growth something intimate goes and one begins to feel a bit like they are coming through a revolving door...."in and out".. My main concern is the turnover of excellent waiters who have come to know one's favourite cut like the Garlic Beef and the fresh Prawns. Keep your good staff Johnny; they are an asset! Oh and more of the band please :they are very good.

“Great place if you want to turn on the meat faucet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2013

Great variety of meat and I found it to be pretty authentic. The salad bar isn't that good, but who goes to a churrascaria for greens?

They also have a really nice grilled pineapple dessert. Great choice for guys night out.

“2nd visit just as good - great service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013

We went to Fogo Gaucho Steak House again - 5 months after our first visit. The salad bar, meat offering, grilled pineapple for dessert, and the service was all as good as our first visit last November.

The crocodile was particularly good - tender and moist. The prime rib was the clear winner though - for all 4 of us. Excellent!

Really enjoy this place - and if you come early (before 6), there are a few shops next door which have some nice curios at decent prices.

Come hungry!
