“Meat Lovers Delight!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2012

Excellent service from the hostess at the front door, to others wishing us a good evening as we left the restaurant. Excellent wine list, which went perfectly with our meal. Great selection on the salad bar, which is NOT your typical salad bar. Wonderful selections from the cheeses, asparagus, salmon, and tabooley. Meat brought back to our table if we requested a more rare cut that what the server had/ very prompt. Is pricey, but we enjoyed every bite

“Plenty of great meet, very good service...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2012

a bit pricey, but if you like good meat in large quantities you can make this a great deal out of this. Great if you are with a group of people since there is no ordering.

“Meat meat and more meat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2012

A meat lovers paradise. Salad bar was good too. I was there with a large group and the food and wine was great. Didn't have to pay so was even better.

“Celebrating a Special Birthday!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2012

This experience was a real let down. It was not the price ( which is almost $50) a person. It was first the un welcoming personality of the hostess followed by what seemed to be a waiter who had no personality let alone any great service skills. Especially from the moment we did not order alcohol his mood got even worse. So sorry but within our party of 13 ( our bill for the evening was $936.00 including an 18% tip & dessert) we have a recovering alcoholic so of course we would not want to enable or put it in front of them for obvious reasons. The meal was sub par...the only two meats to even speak of that were worth eating were the Parmesan Pork and the house speciality being a top sirloin cut. All other meats were extremely fatty with little to no flavor. And of course that was if you could get it chewed or swallow it down. The desserts ordered were pretty good but nothing to write home about and prices start at $8.00. If we had not been celebrating a special birthday I would have demanded the 18% gratuity adjusted or even taken off the service was so bad. Top it off the server had the audacity to come and pick up the bill off the table after it had been paid to make sure he had the receipt. Really??? Who trained him??? You never pick up the bill off the table till your patrons leave. If you are looking for great steak/meat stick to Ruth Chris or Petersons Restaurant. What you pay for here is the experience of seeing a lot meat being carried around the room! In this economy put your money somewhere else.

What I liked the most about Fogo was that you can just get a bit of everything and try stuff, whatever you like, you just get more! Warning!!! You will need to go home and crawl into bed after Fogo De Chao!!!!
