Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse - Boston Ratings and Reviews
The Market Table (salad bar) has a great ...
The Market Table (salad bar) has a great selection of vegetables, fruit, smoked salmon, cheese and charcuterie. The staff were keeping it regularly topped up and clean.
The meats being brought round the table were rather variable. I thought the short rib and lamb chops were awesome, but several of the steak cuts and the leg of lamb were rather tough and/or tasteless. Also, if you get the outside slice of meat, it's very salty. But overall, it's decent value and a fun place to go for something different.

I have been here several times and the food and service are also beyond excellent. This time had a great waiter name was Odrigo (don't know if I spelled that right). He always checked up on us to make sure everything was okay and I remember went out of his way to explain and grab me one of the special Brazilian sodas. Working at Apple, customer service is the most important thing for me and Odrigo went up and beyond to take care of our table and hopefully he can get recognized for his great work especially after only working there 3 months. Will ask for him next time I come back in!

Not the first time here. But tonight, thanksgiving night, they claim they would close at 10:30pm as normal. But the stuffs were started to clean up the place while customers are still eating at 9:30pm. And the buffet bar was closed at 9:50pm

Given that they advertised that thee would be a Thanksgiving part of their usual Brazilian grill menu, I wasn't impressed, with the Turkey etc. I have been here before and the grilled meats are outstanding. I was just looking forward to Turkey, stuffing, potatoes and cranberry sauce. I wont be going her for Thanksgiving in the future.

Fogo Boston has never been up to par of majority of Fogo's we have been to. But it is still a Fogo and is the closest one to us.
Yet again my lamb chops never arrived despite multiple requests. This has happened the previous few visits. And they seem to only bring 4-5 cuts over and over while the rest of the 16 cuts need to be requested. This visit noticed all the meets were not salted.
Overall not as good as Other fogo's but still a good place to go.

Food was good. Service not that good. Our waitress was fine, disappointed with the selection. Seemed like same people were coming to our table with sam meats, maybe 5 options. Had to request few time for certain meats to be brought to our table. Otherwise good experience.

We reserved a table for Thanksgiving and arrived early. We were seated promptly. We were told the staff works "as a team" which led to a lot of confusion as to who was taking our drink order or who to ask for a refill. We had at least 6 different people wait on us. The salad bar was disappointing as it was mainly "brunch" items and no real Brazilian food was on it. There was a lot of fruits, meats and cheeses but not very many Brazilian dishes at all. The meat service was prompt, which made my husband very happy. This was a so so first time here until I took my daughter to the restroom. Then it got ugly. In the larger stall there was a pair of ladies underwear and a bottle of lotion on the floor and one of the other stalls was covered in toilet paper. I really had expected something more, I suppose. After we got back to the table, I really just wanted to leave and we had to ask several people for our check. When we received it, I had been charged for the meat service, which I did not get and there was vodka on it that we hadn't ordered.
Pros- the host staff was pleasant and on point.
Cons- pretty much everything else.

Le principe est assez particulier. Vous avez un buffet de salade et garnitures diverses peu en rapport avec la cuisine brésilienne : saumon !!!
Pas de plats brésiliens pour accompagner la viande qui va être proposée.
Le plus fort est que vous ne choisissez pas une viande comme dans un restaurant classique, là des serveurs viennent vous proposer differents choix de viandes que vous acceptez ou refusez. Jusque là super, sauf que par un calcul que je n'ai pas compris ils évaluent la quantité de viande que vous avez mangé et fixe le prix entre 22 et 50$. Autant vous dire que l'évaluation n'a pas été à mon avantage et que je me suis retrouvé avec une facture de 130$ sans avoir eu l'impression d'avoir dinner pour un tel coût. Peu importe c'était les vacances mais quand même cela frise l'arnaque!!!!

I reserved a table for 7 for 6 p.m. My friends (six black females) arrived before me and was told our reservations was for 7 p.m. not 6 p.m. Although we were seated at 6 PM, in the center of the room, we were ignored most of the time. The waiter did not explain the difference in the menus and prices nor give us drink menus. My friend did not know she could have ordered salmon. He did not explain that dessert was not included. We were in the middle of dinner before we were able to get a cocktail. The waiter never came back to ask if we wanted another drink. We had to ask waiters to have the servers come over with meats. Most of the time they walked right pass our table with meats. For the cost of dinner, it was a very bad experience. Will never go back.

Fogo never disappoints.
Excellent service and superb food. Friendly atmosphere and great place to celebrate a birthday.
My only negative is the valet parking. Remove all valuable s from your vehicle. It is an independent company I believe but we have had issues more than once. Don't let that deter you from this great restaurant though

While the concept is interesting, the food and service were lackluster. Our server who greeted us sounded completely unenthused to be there, which leaves any diner unenthused to enjoy their experience. The meat was decent, but often too salty or tough. It felt like a corporate restaurant with no soul, and clinging onto the only decent part of the experience, which is the gentlemen slicing hot steak at the table.

My waiter was not attentive. We had to asks for stuff with many other staffs walking by and waited long to get simple things like a glass of juice or our side dishes with no cheese. I could hardly understand what the guys carrying the diff type of meat were saying but that is ok. I was more concern with I had to wait long for anything I'd asked for when this place is fast pace, in the city, huge area with plenty of staffs. I would asks if all waiters could check in with their table more which means, if I asks for juice or whatever it is, that u don't have me waiting 5-10 mins for it. I hope the next time I come in I can leave happy.

Great upbeat atmosphere with a casual and fun feel. Salad bar has a ton a variety and is authentic brasilian but the meat is what it is all about and it's a carnivores' delight. The coolest thing however, is that they make authentic caipirinhas which is the best party drink ever! If you to take a group for a fun social event with really good food and great brasilian drinks this is the place.

It was our second time there and was perfect again, all the servers were very attentive to us,
We were celebrating our anniversary and Ana our server make sure that we were having a great time ... she was awesome... we love everything from the beginning to end.

I been to other chain Brazilian steakhouse and they were less in price and more in selection.
We also had a table next door where the lady was very loud I guess she was a public speaker and forgot she was in a restaurant.
So for my experience it was the most expensive loud restaurant ive ever experienced.

I absolutely love this restaurant! My fiance and I went here for our two year anniversary and we ended up getting a complimentary dessert with a candle to celebrate (so cute)! As always, the meat was fantastic and the market table (salad/cheese/fruit/etc bar) was incredible! Prepare to fill your plates and stomachs at this delicious restaurant (and wear a loose dress or pants that expand to handle your inevitable food-baby haha). Fully expect to pass out due to a food coma as soon as you get home :)

We were seated promptly and service was generally decent, though it did take a few requests to order drinks. The seating was OK but somewhat cramped. The market table buffet offered a wide range of vegetable, meat, and cheese options (including some excellent lox!), all of which were very good quality. The side dishes and rolls baked with cheese were great also. The weak point was definitely the meat; multiple variations of beef were fairly tough and stringy and did not seem to be particularly prime cuts. The lamb chops were good. All in all a decent dining experience, but if I were to return I'd probably skip the passed meats if possible.

Not sure who the server was but he was excellent it was my husband birthday and he helped make it special by bringing out flan with writing words happy birthday with a candle . Made the exsperience all the much better.

A good friend is getting married so six of us met at Fogo De Chao for dinner as a last supper for our good bachelor friend. In a thank you email to all of us the groom to be said, "... and what a fantastic choice of a restaurant".

I had the wrong expectations here. You help yourself to the salad bar to start off. Everyone has their own coaster on the table that you flip to green if you want the waiters to bring meat, and red if you want them to stop bringing meat. For those of you that have been here you know this, but I had not and did not. Not quite the upscale steak experience I was expecting, but a fun place if you know what you are getting into.

Fogo de Chao has been my favorite restaurant for years, and every year, my boyfriend takes me there for my birthday. The food is always top-notch: best buffet I've ever had with a wide selection of vegetables and salads, and, of course, an exquisite and delicious meat selection. This most recent meal at Fogo de Chao reminded me that one of my favorite things about the place is the zero wait once you sit down, since you can just go up to the buffet as soon as you put your drink order in. This is great if you have kids, and also means you can eat an A+ dinner in a short amount of time if you need to, as you don't have to wait for food prep. Finally, what stuck out to me in particular this time was the exceptional service from the hostess and staff. The hostess came by several times to ask us how we were doing and how our meals were, and our waitress was also very attentive. I can't wait to come back.

Second time to this place. First time we like it a lot, now not so much..We felt rushed the entire time, we had to ask for the guys with the meats to stop by, the servers was on top of asking to clean our plates no stop. On top of all, while my friend was enjoying her desert, the bus was standing by our table holding a tray of dirty plates, watching her constantly. We felt so uncomfortable. More so, when you spend almost $500 for a dinner, you hope for a better treatment. I counted about 3 managers on the floor that night, but not one stop by our table to check on us. Second time will be last time for us.

This Was an amazing experience to say the least! I would highly recommended eating here. The atmosphere was great, the food was amazing! The wine list was supurb as well as specialty cocktails! I enjoyed myself so much....the butternut soup was my favorite side dish...mashed potato as well of course! The meat......omg... was out of this world. .top sirloin melts in your mouth parmesan crusted pork...ribs...pork sausage. ...and the servers were so nice! I can't to go back and experience this wonderful restaurant again!

Everything was great beaside the table. I called days before our arrival date saying I want to reserve a table in a good spot as it was my husbands birthday. When we arrived there was no table ready for us. We had to walk around with the lady to find a table for ourselves. And found a table that I really didn't like the location. We had to sit there. It wasn't very nice to experience but beside everything was great.
