I am Brazilian and I very disappointed that this restaurant was not up to part. The churrasco coming around did not have enough meat coming around .. I feel like all they had was picanha but not other variety of meats! It's overpriced , and it's not worth paying all this Money for churrasco ! It's overrated !

We visited Fogo for a friend's birthday party and it was a great time. The staff was friendly and generous. Don't be afraid to ask for certain meat if you really enjoy one thing in particular. We requested additional lamb chops and they brought more out right away.

I had heard sooo much about this place. We went the weekend after Valentine's Day so maybe that was the problem. It was so crowed. First we had to wait over an hour for our table, and we had a booking. We were seated towards the very end of a big, dark, noisy restaurant. It was not a nice ambience.... More

Still expensive after the discount but a bit worth it. Fish would be nice here for us vegetarians. Even as a vegetarian you can find something here to eat.

The selection of proteins and the buffet of accompanying dishes were very good. The staff was attentive and attempted to accommodate each diner's requests

We enjoyed a special celebration which suited everyone's taste. Choices galore on the buffet and then the meat in little bits at a time or as many slices as u prefer. Highly recommend but be hungry.

Went for mother's and even though it was busy, the service was excellent. The food is consistently delicious and is similar to other fogo de Chao's. Come hungry!!

If you happen to have visited Brazil and eaten at the Fogo de Chao there you would totally see the difference. Food is good but it is all the rest that doesn't match. If the waiter serving picanha has no idea what it is and what is the difference with fraudinha there's something wrong. Don't get me wrong....food is good... More
