Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse - Boston Ratings and Reviews

Good and service were good. Perhaps not amazing. For the price it should be amazing. One of my kids got his money's worth. My husband enjoyed the meat but probably didn't quite eat enough. My other son only eats chicken and there was only one chicken option , which he enjoyed but still I'm a vegetarian and I knew this wouldn't be vegetarian heaven but anticipated the salad bar with rice and beans. Only problem the beans had meat in it. Isn't there already plenty of meat? A vegetarian option for beans would be an inexpensive nice touch Overall nice meal but I think there are better places to get Brazilian food

Great quality and dependable business meal. It's slightly less expensive for lunch- but there are fewer available meat options. It's still an embarrassment of riches and very impressive. The room is nicely appointed and the wait staff is very helpful and gracious. Surprisingly great for vegetarians with lots of interesting non-meat choices.

I've been to quite a few steakhouses and not one comes close to Fogo de Chao. Fogo de Chao knows how to serve well done meat so that it's still tender, no blood and flavorful. My favorite are the lamb chops because it's hard to find lamb chops on other menus. No need to add sauce(s) or ketchup to the meats.

We have dined here before and thought the salad bar was less varied and interesting than what we remember. The salad bar was a main feature in the past but it was disappointing this time. Food was fine but not outstanding as was service. First round of coffees was luke warm. Found the ambiance a little too noisy, but acceptable. Overall, not at all good value considering the price and would not recommend.

Great service. Went for a 30th birthday date with my wife, and the service was great! They took great care of us, and made sure we got to try everything! They even brought out a special birthday dessert for my wife, without even asking!
The food was amazing, but very filling! Make sure to come here on an empty stomach if you want to try all the different meats!

Compared to the location in Chicago, I was disappointed in the meat. For me, Brazilian meat is synonymous with wonderful flavor and seasoning, a very distinct taste, which this location did not have. I found the meat rather bland and much to rare for my liking. Since the meat is the star of this type of eatery, I left rather disappointed.

This was one of the best Brazilian steak house restaurants we've been to in a while. The service was great, although it wasn't very busy at the time. I don't know how it would be if the place was full.
The quality of the meats was great other than the chicken wrapped in bacon which was quite dry and the salad bar had decent selection, not as varied as some Brazilian steak houses we've been to but it was good.
I look forward to visiting this restaurant again.

The service and ambience at Fogo were great. My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary, and the staff made us feel welcome and special. We also thoroughly enjoyed the complimentary creme brulee for dessert.

We celebrated a family birthday and this is the restaurant our son picked. He adores beef and he was not disappointed. The carnivores in our party had a wonderful time trying the various offerings. The beef was superb and the offerings kept on coming. We enjoyed the various salads and the little cheesy rolls. We wanted to save room for the meat so we didn't try the soup. Watching the various meats proffered from the sword was a lot of fun. We loved it and will be back.

Once again, Fogo proved to be impressive!
The quality of the food - both at the Market Place salad bar and the meats served Rodizio-style at our table - were fresh, beautifully presented, and, in the case of the meats, prepared to order. The attention from the waitstaff was constant without being intrusive.
Fogo continues to justify traveling 45 miles for lunch!

Service was mediocre, going through the motions. Food was average. Price was high. No menu - you get the choice of 3 options: the "salad bar", the bar with sea bass entre, or bar with the endless meat that is carved at your table. Cool and novel experience, but only if you're a big eater would it be worthwhile. And don't be enticed into ordering apps - the endless parade of meats and the "bar" is just that, endless... all you can possibly eat. So for someone who can take advantage of that, this is a place for you.

The place is fantastic! Took my familty there to celebrate my mom's birthday in March (although she passed away in January) went back and took my dad to celebrate his birthday. We all enjoyed it very much. Ana who is now manager is the BEST!!!

Service good despite being very busy. Meat was well cooked but sides were cold. Our young son had an unfortunate experience while visiting the restroom. A very drunk man had wandered in off the street and our son was too scared to come out of the stall. Luckily my husband checked on him, removed him from the rest room and told a staff member what was going on. No follow up with us to see if everything was ok.

First and foremost the service was excellent. Top notch. The servers were always there to refill your plate with great selections of mouth watering barbecue. The salad bar was always clean, tidy and over abundant with delicious choices. An excellent dining experience overall. I will be back again.

Exactly the experience you would expect from a Fogo de Chao. Food was fresh and delicious. The cheese buns didn't disappoint, the salad bar was varied and fantastic, and the meats - oh the meats! Delicious!
Service was prompt and courteous.

Totally worth the hype. Incredible quality meats in a fun and interactive way! Come hungry -- prepare yourself all day for this experience. Try not to fill up on sides before you see how much meat you're going to get! Our server Catherine was wonderful, would definitely go back and request her!

keep going, you are different 😘😘😘

I have been a customer for years, we started with the Atlanta location. Our Father's Day dinner in Boston was incredibly disappointing. The service was terrible. They forgot my drink, did not refill our cheesy bread not one time, and when they partially refilled our appetizers we were already done with dinner. We used to love this place, they would bring our our refills as soon as they disappeared. We had 3 main servers and the only 1 was on point. I hope this was a one-off situation and that this restaurants service isnt falling off.

Fogo is one of our favorite restaurants, but the service tonight was unusually off. The meat either came out all at once or not at all. The filet was not as good as it usually is. My husband likes rare, but everything was medium. The servers are very attentive when you bring issues to them, which is nice.

It was fathers day and the service appeared that they were understaffed. Asked for, butter, water , the check . All above had us waiting @ 15 min. Each time.Potatoes etc came out late well after we were eating meat. Sometimes needed to be reminded twice. For things requested. We there before on mothers day and service was significantly better.sorry for the negative review but it was a negative experience.
Definitely the go-to spot for meat lover ...
Definitely the go-to spot for meat lovers! You have to starve yourself for days in preparation for this endless feast. The parade of well seasoned and grilled meats of every variety never stops. And for those who are not big meat eaters, one can opt for the Market Place only meal for ~$25, which includes a delicious soup, rice and beans, as well as a huge variety of cheeses, cold meats, and salads, including my favorite - the Brazilian potato salad!
While the food offerings were very good, ...
While the food offerings were very good, I was disappointed that all the possible meat choices were not readily available by the waiters walking around with the meats. For example, they walked around with certain cuts of meats, and for others, you had to specifically request it. We asked our waiter for a list of the meat offerings but it never came.
If I recommend Fogo to my friends I would tell them to ask for the meats they want instead of waiting in the hopes that the waiters will bring it around.

I took my boyfriend here for his birthday because what guy isn't a fan of steak? The selection was incredible, especially the items in the Market (salad bar). It was really fun to see the servers carrying around huge skewers of meat and carve it in front of you. Personally, this was a one time experience for me because as fun as it was, it's not really worth the price. Service was friendly but really slow when we went, and we even had a reservation too!

I think you should cook with charcoal wood chips instead of gas. I also asked my drink when I first sat down I got my drink 25 minutes later to a half an hour after I talk the general manager who was really awesome about it. The guys who serve the food are wonderful.

We have had dinner at Fogo a number of times. I was a bit disappointed in the quality of the meat during a visit last week. It was tough and generally overcooked. In particular, the lamb chops had little flavor, and the filets were not of restaurant quality. The salad bar was top notch as always. Not sure if we will go back given all of the excellent steakhouses in the city.

Late Business dinner, food was excellent, selection was superb, had 1 vegetarian with us and even he ate very well.
We were the last table of the night and someone wanted to still eat. the staff went out of their way to keep us happy. Added more ribeye to the grill just for our group and would have done more had we requested it. Customer focus was top focus. Only regret was we didn't save room for dessert. ;-)
Not a good value!!!
So you get a ton of meat for $40 for lunch and $50 for dinner. It is cool that they come around and cut it in front of you but not for that price. You have a salad bar which requires no service. Then there are overpriced cocktails...$15. This was my daughter's choice for her birthday. I would have paid less or the same at the Capital Grille or another well known steak house but we would have had service.
