“Go Hungry ....So much food, it's easy to overdo it.”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

Amazing food,
With 17 different cuts of meat and scrumptious brazilian side dishes, this is one meaty paradise

1. Go hungry, you will eat a lot!
2. Don't fill up on the salad bar, its amazing, but the meat is what you came for.
3. Be prepared for the best service you will ever get at a restaurant, teamwork at its best.
4. Pace yourself, you will be getting a rapid fire pace of delicious food thrown at you
5. Its worth the money, don't let the price get you....ENJOY!!!

“Not as expected ......”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

We went there for a special anniversary dinner. But this place was not for us. The room is big and stuffed with tables without any separation. The atmosphere is loud and hectic. We were not able to carry out a conversation between the 4 of us. The waiters with the meet are almost running around which creates even more hectic. We had 3 or 4 different servers and felt rather disturbed and somewhat pressured to order drinks. Beer was pored all at once into the glass perhaps to avoid sharing. The food was not at all as expected for the price tag. The buffet was ok, the shrimp and mango salad tasted like chlorine. The meat was either charcoal on the outside or raw inside. Certainly never medium as I had asked for. The bottom line is that this was not or us - too loud, overpriced food. Interestingly, I posted a similar review at the restaurant ' website and received an e-mail to discuss. Not sure what we have to discuss as this was our very personal opinion. Seems they want only those " Oh we loved it....." comments on their website.

“There are better places in the area”
Reviewed September 15, 2013 via mobile

We had a very nice meal here tonight but I think there are better places in the area for the amount you're paying...
The staff was friendly but not special. The meat was nice and the salad bar was very good, great fresh veggies! You could get meat from the guys that walk around with fresh grilled meat, I liked that they give you small portions, giving you the chance to taste different grilled meats. Or you could rder a special cut and they bring it to your able, no need to ask twice, they'll shw up with your cut.
Wine is definately overpriced!!!

Now for the better place in the same area, go to FireLake in the Radisson. The food is absolutely fantastic there, service is better and wine is cheaper ;)
Bottle of Catena Malbec was $58 at Fogo de Chao and $32 at FireLake, just saying....

“Everyone should experience this at least once.”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

The service was fantastic! But I found the food to be ordinary. There was a great variety of pork, lamb, and steak, along with a beautiful salad bar, but....two couples, dinner and a couple cocktails, $400. I would rather good to Ruth's Chris.
