Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse - Boston Ratings and Reviews
This was my second visit. I was complete ...
This was my second visit. I was completely impressed the first time by the variety in the salad bar, the attentive service and meat variety and service. This time however, the service was less attentive, the meat was seasoned excessively with SALT it was almost inedible. Did the chef roll a thick layer of salt on the meat? Not necessary. The variety of meat was very limited compared to our first visit. The staff kept coming to our table with the same choices. We eventually asked where the filet mignon, lamb, etc was. We also saw a very interesting cut of meat being searched on an attractive board but that was never offered. A little disappointing the second time around.

The food was excellent and everyone enjoyed everything they ate. Compared to other locations my family and I have visited, the service in Boston falls short to the service in Pennsylvania, Indianapolis, and Baltimore, but the food quality remains the same.

Most meats are oversalted. Not as many hot dishes (other than meats) as other Brazilian steakhouses I have visited. Also disappointed in the lack of filet. In more than an hour, only one server came by with a single leftover piece (lukewarm) and not enough for my table. We tried to find another server with filet, but perhaps they didn't make it to our dining area. Overall, an expensive disappointment. I really wanted to like this place, but alas...

We had a great time! It was my daughters 21st Birthday. I mentioned it in the reservation and they brought out a dessert with happy birthday written on the plate! The service was flawless, never wanting for anything. Even our water glasses stayed full. The manager stopped by our table to ensure we were enjoying our selfs. The food/ meats were amazing. I absolutely plan on going back. Also great option for gluten free dinning.

My hesitation about the restaurant is that if you are unaware of the way it works (we were unaware), you will be surprised by the price. We assumed it was a regular "order what you want off the menu," but instead it's a huge buffet of really nice salads and some vegs and then these "gauchos" walk around with these different cuts of meat. And it's expensive. We would not have been bothered by this if we knew the premise, but it was a surprise that we weren't thrilled about. Our servers were lovely and the restaurant is as well.

Fogo de Chao has amazing food and it is all you can eat, but I could not eat there all the time. I prefer to go there for special occasions, as the meal can get expensive, especially with drinks. Their wine list is thorough and they have amazing desserts, but I never have them because I am so stuffed from the great Brazilian food.
This place is for meat lovers only. Although they have a great salad bar, if you are a vegetarian, I would go elsewhere.

Good food at Fogo de Chao! It was my birthday and first time visiting. There is a buffet and also several meat cutters with various meats that will cut to order. I had fantastic lamb, pork tenderloin parmesan, ribs, and sirloin. All were done nicely.

this is not a place for anybody who knows the difference between Prime beef and choice or select, had to try it out, I loved the Salad Bar and the service was really good, but the Quality of the beef was really really bad, less than Choice, my guess is select. because the quality of the beef is so low you must have it cooked at least medium, and I like my beef rare, tried a few of the cuts rare and it was like shoe leather with little or no marbling, only two cuts were passable, the ribeye and the short rib roast, the rest ended up in a pile on a plate. for the quality, the price should be half of what it is. if you don't know better you will love the place.

This restaurant does best with the larger pieces of meat that you can request the way you like it - medium-rare, rare, etc. The smaller pieces of meat seemed to be all overcooked - the lamb chops where well done - but, it was seasoned well, so it wasn't horrible. Other small pieces of meat that they just take off without slicing seemed to be overcooked as well (I prefer my meat medium-rare). Also, I don't know how they decide what tables to come to - there were times some selections of meat never came to our table, and one time the server did come, gave two of us slices, then took off running in the other direction, leaving my friend (who had her card turned to green) with nothing. She tried calling him, but he took off too fast. The food was mostly good and the buffet was good too. But, I just came back from Germany where I ate at a Brazilian steak house, and they did everything perfect, so this one didn't live up to my expectations.

We went with another couple for my wife's birthday. It was a great experience, though it took more than 10 min to be approached by a wait staff member after being seated. Drink refills were slower than desired, but the food was outstanding, and one of the waiters overheard it was my wife's birthday and brought out a desert with a candle for free. They didn't make a big scene which was perfect and appreciated. We will definitely go back when Brazilian BBQ is desired.

Great food and plentiful.
Wonderful salad bar with 101 choices!
The waiters and waitresses were always readily available.
Nice and convenient location.
Easy to walk to, or take public transportation.
Lots of fun for a first time visit to the restaurant.

This our third visit. The food and service were excellent each time we have visited. You want to come here hungry & with an empty stomach. From the wines, cocktails, fresh market table (buffet), meats, & sides, to coffees, desserts, after-dinner drinks, we have no complaints. We especially enjoyed the lamb chops, house special sirloin, key lime pie and Irish coffee.

My 15 year-old son and his friend certainly enjoyed and got their money's worth! They loved being able to select the meats to be carved off for them at the table. The salad bar was fresh & has a very impressive range of items but as it's a set price menu, you really have to go with a hearty appetite to feel you have had good value for money!

I've been to this location a number of times over the years, and we always have a great experience. However, at our last visit, there were several problems with the food and service. The cuts of meat, which usually produce moans of delight around the table, tasted unseasoned and uninspired. Also, the gauchos often chose meat that did not match my request. I always say, "medium rare," but some of my cuts were deep red in the middle while others were cooked through. I would have respected the gaucho saying, "I do not have medium rare right now, but I will be back with some shortly," rather than just cutting off a slice of whatever. Finally, our waiter was very slow to refill our waters and ask if we wanted a second cocktail. By the time the meal had ended, we just asked for the check instead of selecting a dessert or ice wine, as we often do. It was a disappointing experience, especially for $165 (for two people).

Energetic and lively atmosphere, Fogo is a fun place to go with friends. The food is good, but we were really impressed with the service. The restaurant was very busy when we visited, but the staff was very attentive.

We love it here, but the drink prices are outrageous. I got a drink that was mostly ice and it was $16. I find that to be way overpriced. I wouldn't have had AS much of an issue paying $12, but $16 for what it was? That is ridiculous - it was worth MAYBE $10. However, the food was excellent and the ambiance was beautiful.

Everything was great! Staff were on top of everything. Always available, and would ask how everything was going. The manager (tall woman) was super kind and was always around. Overall, my husbands and I had a wonderful date night, and the staff at fogo de chão made it special. Thank you so much you guys! Keep it up!!!

Come hungry because you will leave incredibly full! Fast, polite and attentive service. The most delicious meats I've ever had. We took our time and ate slowly, never once feeling rushed by the staff. Delicious key lime pie for dessert, if you save room!

The only drawbacks to this as a Brazilian restaurant was the lack of some common foods/drinks that you would always see at a barbecue in Brazil such as jello with sweetened condensed milk, Brazilian strawberry moose, Maracuja, and some other side dishes. The deserts were more along the lines of New York style cheesecake and key lime pie; rather American. The rest of the food, however, was more than enough of a departure from standard American fare to prove it was something new and exciting while still maintaining a pleasing set of flavors and textures to most palates.

To start: the food was absolutely delicious! The meat was cooked to anyone's needs. The waiter even brought over a specially cooked meat for one of my fellow patrons. Once you turn over the green card, there is an abundance of protein on your plate. The noise level was moderate-loud but not overbearing. I am excited to eat here again.
As a side note, make sure you do not 'stuff' yourself on the bread and salad, it is a tad tempting
