“Outstanding Meat and Salad Spread”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

A brazilian churrascaria with outstanding flavors. Unlimited tasty steaks and the salad spread makes it worth several visit. We tried these with white wine. Definitely the place to be.

“Continue one of the best Rodizios here in the US and in Sao Paulo”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

Sorry Fogo de Chao, I kind of cheated on you and went to Chima to try it out, BUT...... I am back
I had to try what other people were saying about the other restaurant, but I find your meats, more tasty, more cook to perfection and exactly as you can eat it in Brazil
Just one recommendation, I liked the Costela de Boi at Chima, so watch out
Other than that I will remain your fan, I hope you forgive me...... see you soon

“Awesome Meat Fest 2012!”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

I went here with my husband, and my best friend and her boyfriend who were visiting all the way from Amsterdam. My husband and her boyfriend are HUGE carnivors and she is a vegetarian. The meat was delicious, I have never tasted anything like this in my life! Dessert is amazing, even my friend who was vegetarian who had the salad bar thought it was amazing. The service was awesome and you are catered to at such a level that you almost dont know what meat to eat first. $50 per person for all you can eat meat fest with all different kinds of meat. The servers wait for you to turn your coaster to "green" (meaning you are accepting food) then they swarm youo with different cuts and preps of meat...AMAZING! then you turn your coaster to "red" when you are finished, taking a break or eating. Best ever in South Beach, just make sure your hotel is close by for a nap after dinner. Also valet parking is necessary unless you want to risk getting towed in South Beach.

“Use to be brilliant and now no more”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

It's sad when you see a place that use to have outstanding meat, good service, and reasonable rate get worst and worst and worst. Every time we get back in this place trying to give them another chance it's worst that the previous time. Meat tasteless or having a taste of dirty grill. Waiter wondering around not knowing what to do. Table let dirty and not redone. Buffet not so fresh and appealing. The waiter were going around with the same three cuts of meats we had to wait more than an hour to see something different and all the range of cuts have been presented. The place have a sad atmosphere of a dying restaurant, little dirty. It seems to be the destiny of most of the restaurant in this city to became dull and unpleasant after a shinning start. This place used to be brilliant, with excellent meat and a very,very good service... What a pity!

I'm from brazil so used to churrascarias and all their pitfalls (bringing around all the cheap cuts and none of the more expensive ones, stuffing you with a massive random buffet of lasagne and sushi etc.)

Fogo de chao does none of these tricks-- it has a comprehensive salad bar and thats it. They also give you some hot accompaniments at your table like mashed potatoes. Then all the delicious meats start doing the round... We were offered all sorts of meats constantly, non-stop, and the one that came around the most was actually the filet mignonette, the most expensive cut. All the meat was cooked to absolute perfection. The service was formal but friendly and excellent. There were maybe 3 servers per table! My husband and I really enjoyed our experience there and still talk about it all the time, really really worth going
