I took a friend who had 4 restaurants (high quality) in New York and he was very impressed & loved it. Nothing like impressing someone in the know!

“One of my favorite restaurants.”
Reviewed March 16, 2014 via mobile

Ive been to this particular restaurant on several occasions. I'm always impressed with the high level of service i have received and my latest visit was no exception. I visited on 3/15 with a group of friends from out of town. The wait staff was fantastic however the gauchos seemed to never make in to the area of the restaurant we were seated it. I spoke to the manager on my way to the restroom. Within seconds we were swarmed by gauchos and the executive chef checking on us periodically throughout our visit. VERY IMPRESSED.

“Fogo de Chao”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

We went there as a group of 7 people to celebrate our twins 18th birthdays. We were a party of 2 seniors, 3 teenagers, mom and dad. This restaurant was amazing.The service was excellent, we didn't have to wait for anything. The salad bar was plentiful and varied, the hot choices were tasty and replenished regularly but the meat courses were to die for, absolutely delicious. Our new favorite place to go. The 18 year olds were presented with beautifully decorated Happy Birthday plates with desert ...A gift from the restaurant, we had not expected this so it was a very welcomed surprise, although I have no idea where they found room for it! 10/10.

“Very nice for Family & Friends”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

Great decor and loads of food for one price. Delicious salads and lots of grilled beef , chicken thighs and roasted pork. A nice touch would be an assortment of sauces like chimichurri or other steak sauce. Service was good but needs to be refined to ask if someone is done before reaching in to take the plates. The cheese bread was really enjoyable , I should say cheese rolls, they are round to oval in shape and very delectable. The desert menu was not an option for us as we were stuffed .

“Unbelievable Experience”
Reviewed March 8, 2014

First time eating at a Brazilian steak house, and what an experience. I was on a business trip, and we booked reservations for over 150 people. They handled our group with grace, and the service was excellent. To say the meal was great would be a disservice to the restaurant. The best steak I have ever eaten.
