Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse - Houston Ratings and Reviews

Employees were great. Was too noisy for like date night in my opinion but I went for lunch for my mother's birthday so maybe dinner is different. As mentioned staff were great. Food was ok. Felt like you were paying more for the experience than the actual food. I have to mention though dessert looked beautiful and my mother loved it.

the food was good but the meats were not very consistent in taste some was very salty and some had no salt on it, the server was average, i had requested some special cuts to be sent to the table but it took for ever and by the time the server came back and was notified he took care of it but we had our fill from other less desirable cuts that was below my expectation, we also ordered fresh bread and fried banana which also didn't make it until after we were full from the salad bar. overall i have been to fogo before and had better experiences.

my wife and I went to fogo for our annual anniversary, this year we took our adult children who really enjoyed the experience. the service was excellent, waiter very attentive without being overbearing or distracting. my requests were immediately seen to and he remembered what I had asked for so second rounds were made to see if we needed more, very nice touch. upon hearing we were there for a anniversary we were immediately sent a lovely cheeses cake declaring " happy anniversary" another nice touch. the food was excellent as usual. a great experience with one caveat, made a 7 pm reservation several weeks in advance, arrived couple minutes before 7 and got our table at 7:35 kinda wondered why I made a reservation in advance, it was a Saturday night but no overly busy.

Going back for my second time was extremely disappointing. The food was okay, not great as I remembered it. The service ended up being atrocious.
The valet service was the best experience out of the entire evening. They parked my car right in front and retrieved it within minutes.
Unfortunate experience as I felt I let my part down, specially because this most recent experience did not live up to the expectation set by my prior visit.

We have been to this location 3-4 times a year, and looked forward to our anniversary dinner there last week. The food is always excellent and the dining area is well laid out with a good overall feel. The service has always been very good in the past, but this time was not the case. Our service disappeared halfway through the meal! No more drinks, no checking for coffee or dessert, not even an offer for the check, just ... nothing! I even made eye contact with the waiter who quickly ducked his head and took off?!?
I flagged down another wait staff, and a new waitress was sent to our table. I asked what was going on and 10 minutes later the original waiter came back to say he had been re-assigned to cover another area on the other side of the dining room. We had a new waitress cover the rest of our dinner. The service was extremely subpar, enough so that despite good experiences in the past this one removes this location from consideration for future dining experiences. There are far too many other excellent options in Houston.

Took my husband here for his birthday and it was insane amounts of fun! I was a little nervous to try all these different foods at the market table that I had no clue what was but everything we tried was amazing, and just an overall fun experience!

I was very disappointed with the meat. There was no flavor at all and they served us mashed potatoes from a box. All that money for instant potatoes. I was very unhappy and would love my money back. The salad was great. I had 2 plates of it. The bananas were horrible and old. Very disappointed with this experience. I will never go back. Rather take my money to Texas de Brazil. The service was nice at least.

This was my fourth time here, and like always the experience was excellent, our server Anthony, great guy! To be honest this is my first time having a server very communicative, we talked about everything pretty much, even tho he was with more tables on top. Food! Always delicious! Keep it going!

My husband and I love Fogo. It's a bit pricey, but the value you get for your money is outstanding, especially if you're able to use one or more of their coupons. The gaucho experience is fantastic, allowing an excellent variety of food and the fun of having it brought to your table until you've had enough. Their salad bar has many delicious options (I love the potato salad and bacon!) and their cheesy biscuit/popovers are my absolute favorite thing on the menu (which is funny considering it's a carnivore's paradise). The texture of the interior of those little cheesy rolls is out of this world and unlike anything else. I eat them non-stop throughout the meal and always wish I could take some home with me! Aside from the food, the staff at Fogo is truly exceptional. The waitstaff is friendly and attentive (I don't think I've ever emptied a glass there) and at least twice during the meal someone checks in with us to make sure there isn't anything we would like to eat that hasn't been already brought around to us. Fogo is a fun dining experience and I highly recommend it.

Terrible experience. We had a party of 10 and we were celebrating a wedding. From start to finish the experience was horrible. The hostess was rude and not helpful. He sat another large party before us even though our entire party was there first. Once we were seated it only got worst. The waiter was no where to be found most of the time. Drinks were not refilled. Plates were taken away but we never got new plates. The meat would be at the table but we did not have plates to eat on, so we were forced to get up ourselves to get our plates while the server stood there with the meat at the table. The servers were also not friendly, I felt like I was being treated as if I was not paying for my meal there. Initially when we first got back from the salad bar we were swarmed by 5 guys trying to serve us meat, no one at the table was even on the green side yet each person was constantly asked if we wanted meat. Additionally we didnt even have plates to eat off of so those that did feel the need to get meat at that time were having to put the meat on their already full salad plate. I was not ready for meat the first time but when I was I had to wait for a very long time before anyone came by the table again. After the initial swarm of meat, they stopped coming to the table, we had to constantly ask for what we wanted and then wait at least 7 minutes before getting to eat.I know this because I timed them after having waited so long. Overall terrible experience, no one in our party had a good time and needless to say we will not be returning. Especially when Chama is right down the street and a much better experience. This was suppose to be a joyous occasion and it was ruined by Fogo's service. They didnt just lose 1 customer, theyve lost 10 for life.

This restaurant is always a great place to come when in Houston. We love meeting our friends here for an exceptional outing. Whether celebrating birthdays, anniversaries, or just getting together.The service is great, food is to die for, and you won't leave hungry. They have specialty drinks and great desserts. We rate this restaurant 5 Huge Stars!!!

A little bit outdated format. The meat selection is always the same. Too salty most of the cases. Very noisy ambience. The salad bar has a very ample selection. However you cannot eat everything. And even if you want thee the waiter comes to ask if you are waiting something in particular. All of this quite pricey

We just loved our night out for our anniversary. We went to this Fogo because this one was recommended over the Woodlands location. I came in with high expectations because I have been to a few places in Brazil.
From the moment we walked in the service was perfect. We were seated right away in a great location. The waiter mentioned our anniversary and that was a great touch. We started with the market salad bar. There were many fresh items and some of the same choices as in São Paulo. The only thing it was missing was more seafood choices. I just saw smoked salmon.
It was time to bring on the meat. My favorite was the top sirloin and my wife loved the chicken. The sides were plentiful and tasty, but I did not partake much in the sides. I waited a long time for the lamb to come around. When it finally arrived, it was disappointing because it was over cooked. I do understand it's all about the beef.
When it came to dessert, it was complimentary because I mentioned our anniversary in my reservation. All in all, it was a great experience and we will be back. I give it a 4.7 out of 5. Bon Dia!

I have to say my husband and I were a little disappointed. The salad bar didn't look as appetizing as it usually does. Also the wait staff wasn't friendly at all. I almost felt like we weren't welcome. Last year we were there for 28th anniversary and had a much better experience. We thought maybe because it was a Sunday as apposed to a Saturday evening.

Fogo De Chao was amazing!!! This was my first time visiting this restaurant & I loved every moment! The open salad bar was great. Everything looked so fresh! As soon as I turned my little round piece over multiple meats were brought to the table! Chicken, steak, etc! It was all great! The brownie & ice cream for dessert was excellent! The service was amazing! Everyone was prompt, nice, assisted with anything we needed! Will definitely be making a second visit. This place is a tad expensive but worth every penny!

After reading other reviews and seeing pictures I was excited to surprise my husband with dinner here for his birthday. Honestly we were very disappointed and underwhelmed with the experience. The meat was ok, most of it was dry; we enjoyed the 'market place' bar more than the meat. It was worth going to have the experience of the guys coming to the table and eat as much as you like, but we were expecting a more Brazilian experience and it was more of get people in and get people out feeling. Our server was great and he did bring my husband a great cheesecake for his birthday, but Sad to say I don't think we will be going back.
