Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse - Boston Ratings and Reviews
Fogo de Chao has been my favorite restau ...
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.

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.

We went there for our dad's 70th birthday dinner. We had reservations and were seated promptly upon our arrival. The food was fantastic. The meat servers were wonderful and did not miss a beat to serve us. The drink server, however, did not bring our drinks to us in a timely fashion. So much that we received the bill before our second drinks were served. Had we known we would not have ordered a second round. We should have known as the first round he took the drink order for half the table and then walked away. We called him back to finish the drink order. When he brought the table (table of 8)the drinks he only brought 6 of them and we had to ask a few times before the others were brought to the table. Would I go back there, absolutely.

If you like to eat dead animals, this is your spot. The Meats are all great cuts, cooked fantastically, brought to your table. The best part is the variety; Gauchos walk around with various meats cooked various ways and you can try a little of this and a little of that and everything is offered at all cook lengths (rare, medium rare, medium ,medium well etc.).
The food bar/salad bar has a lot of options. I went for the meat so the only thing that we got from the salad bar was smoked salmon, some sun dried tomatoes and some cheeses (to eat with the meat).
It's on the pricier side, but for Boston it's not even that badly priced (prices here are ridiculous). for about $50 each, you'll be stuffed to the brim and will have fully enjoyed yourself up to that point.

We informed that we are celebrating a birthday. They brought cake/ice cream with a lit candle and a HappyBirthday garnish after we were done with the food and drinks. Our server checked on us regularly. The meat servers showed up very quickly and regularly as well. The restaurant is pretty spacious and great for big family get-togethers. It is a full bar. The meat was a little over-seasoned, but overall pretty tasty.

Authentic meat fest. Service was fantastic . The Round table we were sat at made this business dinner meeting perfect for 9 of us. There were times when the delivery of meat was delayed and times when there was too much delivery.

Meats weren't very flavorful and were too salty. Mashed potatoes tasted fake. Way too pricey for "lunch" and definitely NOT a date pace due to the constant interruptions. Will stick to a traditional steak house next time.

Was surprised about the lack of customer service, in a setting where your staff is the focal point along with the food, of course. Our initial waiter was informative and courteous but that was the last we saw of him. A number of other staff people descended upon our table at various times, the serving staff was exceptional and the highlight of the night. Waited for coffee and dessert for over 20 mins...and another 20 minutes for the bill. Would say that they either need re-training or bring on additional help.

The last time I had eaten in a restaurant such as this I was in Brazil. Fogo de Chao's food was fun and good. The salad bar had several typically Brazilian items. The meats were cooked perfectly. The wait staff was helpful, friendly, and made dining a real pleasure.

I loved the ambiance and the waiters were very friendly. The food was delicious and fulfilling. Only issue was my family and I were sitting next to the door which made us cold. Besides that it was a nice night out celebrating my sisters birthday! :)

We love this place we come once or twice a year for birthdays. Normally the service is great but the main waiter seemed overwhelmed from the time we sat down till the time we left. their was also a large party of at least 20-30 people preparing to sit next to us and I felt that we were forgotten a little bit in the process only being a table of 5. The food was good but we were in the corner and a lot of the options did not make it to us. But I must say one of the waitresses came over and we asked( after we asked our waiter) for lamb chops, this is one of my boyfriends favorite items , as we had not seen them at all and she made sure that they came to the table and even followed up when they did not arrive right away. Overall still a happy meal as the food as always made up for the slow service.

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.
