Everything here is perfection from food to service to atmosphere. Wait staff works as a team and bring various meats to your table to serve. You never wait too long for anything. The salad bar is ample and a true feast for the eyes. Not just lettuce and fixings but tuna salad, shrimp, etc. Don't even attempt to walk in... More

I was taken to Fogo by a business associate. It seemed very hectic for my taste; however, had to wait a long time for several cuts to come around. I don't see myself ever visiting this location again.

This is a great special occasion restaurant. Primarily because the average diner doesn't want to spend $50/person regularly. But, that price gets you the buffet (which is mostly veg/carbs/cheese) and all the meat you want. It's delicia!

The servers works as a team to make sure that you always have any of the meat cuts cooked the way you like them. The meats were delicious but I have to say the steak cuts were my favorite. The salad bar was very fresh with lots of variety and I really enjoyed all the fresh fruit. It was absolutely... More

My husband surprised me with dinner here for my birthday. From the minute we walked in, to the moment we left, everything was amazing. The manager came over several times to see how we were doing. Will definitely go there again!!!

Seldom do you receive such attentive service especially in a busy, bustling restaurant. Our beverages were kept full. Our used plates were removed in a timely manner. Everyone on the support staff was friendly and efficient The food is very good quality.

This was my first visit and it was amazing. The food just kept coming. Varieties and cuts of meat, attractively displayed and presented and always hot and fresh. A word of caution - to do justice to the meat, avoid the temptation of the salad bar and assorted items on the buffet. I would definitely go back for another experience... More
