“Excellent meal as long as you know what to expect”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Having been fortunate enough to eat at FDC in Brazil, I wanted to treat my family to the same Brazilian BBQ experience. Yes:it's not cheap (as a family of 2 adults/2 kids, we spent $300+) & No: it's not your typical steak house experience but as long as you know it's a fixed price menu & how the meats are served, you're in for a treat with the BBQ experience.

We all loved the buffet (you could eat enough there alone) but my kid's really enjoyed the red/green light meat serving system & the fact they could keep on eating the various cuts that they liked again & again. My wife enjoyed the complimentary sides especially the caramelised banana. I did notice that after a few rounds, you have to encourage the severs to come over to you but most of them were very friendly & helpful. What with an expensive bottle of red; deserts; & the obligatory service charge on top, it was our biggest splurge on holiday but a lot more satisfying than eg a dinner show.

“Melt in your mouth beef”
Reviewed July 27, 2013 via mobile

Based on TripAdvisor reviews we gave this restaraunt a visit last night. As per reviews the place was fantastic. All meat cuts were medium- rare as requested and the flavour and taste was delicious and tender. Only the wrapped chicken was a little dry. Salad bar was sufficient as sides for the meat dishes but could be slim picking if you had a non-meat lover in your group. What set this restaraunt apart is the service level from Zack and his co-workers. From pulling out chairs to reviewing the menus and processes, everything was done with gusto and total professionalism. With wine and desert the bill was a little above an average dining experience especially if you cannot eat your fill of meat. That said quality often takes a back seat to quantity in many restaraunts nowadays. Not so here. For a restaraunt that you know is looking to turn tables I never once felt rushed and even overheard the floor manager tell patrons to just rest between entree and desert. Their whole floor service is a smooth and efficient operation. Floor manager and multiple wait staff asked repeatedly as to our satisfaction and enquired as to our needs. Only one - more service level like this restored to the industry.

“Excellent experience! Celebration of meat!”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

Read the review on trip advisor and decided to try Fogo! The experience was fantastic! My husband was very impressed with the food, service and quality! The ticket was $200 for 4 but well worth it. Come expecting to eat until you can't eat anymore! Loved it! Will frequent again in Atlanta (closer to our home) and when we return to Orlando!!!
