While I have nothing negative to say about my overall experience, I just cannot bring myself to recommend this restaurant. I must confess the format is not my favorite. I'd rather have a small filet or tender loin and a good bottle of wine for the same price. I guess I'm getting old!

We were given a gift certificate from family and love meat in general so tried it out. Very attentive serving staff. The salad area is not your average, lots of delicious options and good cheeses. And the meats were all amazing as suspected.

I enjoyed every moment and it was a special occasion for my lovely daughter, The family enjoyed and embraced the moment well spent. We will be back!

Great restaurant. Asked for an obscure request and arrived to find it was met. Amazing service, never waited more than 3 minutes for more food to be brought around. All the meat was amazing, particularly the top sirloin. Highly recommended.

We came for Father's Day. We had to wait about 20 minutes beyond or reservation time. The table waiter spoke very softly and was hard to hear over the very loud restaurant. We had visited 2 or 3 years previous, but this time the food was not nearly as good. Maybe we had gotten seated in a bad spot, but it seemed like the servers never wanted to stop at our table. We asked twice for more of the bananas but ended up just paying the check and leaving without ever getting any. For the cost, it will probably be another 5 years before I forget this occasion to want to try it again.

If we are forced to pay dinner prices on special occasions during lunch time then I feel the dessert should be included in the price.

We were put in a corner table. Only a few servers went to our table. Had several times we had to wait for at least 15 minutes to get the meat over to our table. We were skipped several times. Our last visit for fathers day was not enjoyable...very disappointed. Would not recommend at this time.

Food was ok, servers very good but serving the dishes were a bit slow. We had to ask many times for the dishes. Too noisy and chaotic like. Our reservation is 11:00 am , lunch hour, but we were charged dinner price. I only realized that we were overcharged a couple of days after.

Third Fogo we've been to and by FAR the best experience we've had (and we loved DC & NYC Fogo). Seated exactly at our reserved time even on a busy night, drinks were great, food was spectacular (Parmesan pork was a treat and not available at every Fogo), service was amazing. My only issue is with the highly unprofessional valets, but I would never knock this restaurant for that.

My wife and I have been her numerous times and have never received such poor service. We were regular customers who will now not be coming back and will instead go to the other numerous Brazilian steakhouses in the area. Very disappointed.

had a reservation for 8:30. wasnt seated until 9. reservations apparently have no value to the fogo staff. also, the meat was not consistent. i fell in love with the first piece of the top sirloin. amazing. after that, the second piece just wasn't the same. the meat improved with the third piece, but the inconsistent cycle went on. overall, fogo de chao is over-rated. the service was excellent, but the ambience was lacking. the cliental was not as i would have expected for the price point. needless to say, i left disappointed. i definitely suggest going with pappas over fogo. same price, better experience.

I have been curious about this place for years and I must say that it was totally worth the wait! Excellent food and service! Can't wait to go back. I arrived at 5:00 pm on a Friday; glad I did because there was a long line on my way out. Staff was great; very attentive! I had visited a poor imitation of this place a year ago and was so disappointed! No one ever came to our table and we were so hungry when we left we had to go have dinner somewhere else. So happy I got to try the real deal; this is the best! Love it; I'm a customer for life!!!!

We were looking forward to this special occasion. Service was ok, however we were in a corner where the meat waiters didn't come to often to check if we wanted more meat. Even after asking other waiters to send them (the meat providers) to our table, we still didn't get the service / attention we expected. It was like begging for more food. For the price we expected better service.

service was terrible, the people who brought out the different meats barely spoke English and the ones who did, kept saying its coming but after 20 mins of waiting and getting full on the bread and mash potatoes, we barely ate the meat. but the meat that we did eat tasted amazing.

Fogo de Chao is always a special treat. My Wife treated me here for my Birthday, and we really enjoyed the vibrant atmosphere. FDC has an excellent salad bar. Once you finish with your salad, you turn your token over to "green", and the parade of gaucho's come to your table with various meats. You are also served fried plantain bananas, polenta and mashed potatoes at your table. Believe me, you do not leave hungry from FDC! My one "con" to mention is that they really need to enforce some sort of dress code. We saw people walk in wearing shorts, sandals, tank tops, t-shirts.......you name it. This is an upscale restaurant, and this should not be allowed.

The buffet spread and BBQ meats were impressive, but we were most delighted by the service which was excellent, caring and so attentive, including our server Taimur who was great!
Great Food, Yummy
This was my first time eating here, and it was everything I thought it would be. The service was great and the food was so fresh and taste delicious. I would definitely be returning soon and recommending people to try it.
