This was our first time there and everything was very good. The only complaint I have is that the waiter took my silverware before I was finished. When I pointed this out he brought more.

Once again a wonderful meal and experience!! Strong drinks, gourmet salad bar, and perfect meats! The service was helpful and friendly!! Thanks for a great night Fogo! Will be back soon!!!:)
Amazing meats! Great cocktails!
Went here for our Anniversary. While it was a little hectic with people it was a very festive atmosphere. The meat selection was great and I felt all the meats made there way around to our table within a reasonable time. The food was excellent meats cooked to perfection. Ribeye was a favorite but even the chicken was grilled perfect.

Great food and ambiance but we were seated 30 minutes after our reservation.
Meat Eater's Paradise
We had a very short wait before we were seated. The wait staff was exceptional. While the focus is on meat, the salad bar was exceptional as well. The atmosphere was comfortable. While it is not a restaurant we will frequent, a bit outside our normal budget for dining out, it was a great place for celebrating a special occasion. The food was great!

Fogo de Chao is a great place to spend you and your significant other's special day. Great food (all you can eat!), great wines, and great service. I would definitely recommend Fogo to any and all of my friends.

We waited 50 min with a reservation but customer service manager did a great job making it right. I would go back anytime. The food and service was out of this world.

I celebrated my Birthday at Fogo De Chao Minneapolis last May 21st and It was Excellent. From the items at the salad bar to the Excellent cuts of different meats it was truly superb. This was even my 3rd visit here but I get always impressed. Service was excellent, they are all friendly and very accommodating. Overall this is a special place for occasional dinner as it is a pricey restaurant but its worth it...definitely coming back again with any sort of event worth celebrating. PS..I got a complimentary dessert chocolate cake which was truly amazing for my birthday without the singing

The quality and cuts of steak, lamb, chicken and pork are outstanding. You couldn't possibly ask for a better selection of meat. If you are a meatatarian, this is definitely the place to go. The drinks a little bit on the expensive side, but the meal was decently priced for the Minneapolis area.

Great spot!! I travel to Brazil every quarter and assumed Fogo de Chao would not measure up, I was wrong....great spot, rivals the Fogo de Chao in São Paulo!!

Good choice even for vegetarians. Our carnivore daughter enjoyed the meat choices and my husband and I, who don't eat meat, enjoyed the salad bar immensely. There was more than enough there to eat!

I always love Fogo De Chão very great restaurant to go too if you've never been .
Offers quite the dining experience
This place was amazing....the service was impeccable, the food...delicious. There was not one complaint. The salad bar is full of Brazilian delicacies and the tableside meat carving is entertaining and cooked to your perfection. I would definitely return and have already told many friends about this gem! Its a place you must visit!

Booked a special graduation dinner for 15 months ago specifically asking for a quiet, private area. Instead we were placed smack in the middle of a very noisy main room. That was disappointing as a number of the party were older, several had hearing issues, and many had traveled from out of state. The salad bar was fabulous; the meat good with portions that could be as large as one desired. But the experience overall did not merit the VERY expensive tab in my opinion. When the contract had been arranged, it promised a $150 voucher at the end of the meal. The server and the evening manager both told me they could not provide that voucher and were unsure if it applied to our party. Instead I had to call to speak with the events supervisor the next day. She was very apologetic and immediately offered to send it. And she added in an extra gift card. Very nice!

Visited on a Thursday night. We were seated right on time but the waitstaff was a bit slow throughout the meal - I don't think the team-service approach works as well for Fogo as they would like it to. Overall, delicious food and fun way to celebrate a birthday. I will return and would recommend.

Fogo de Chao was wonderful as usual. The restaurant was able to accommodate our large group and explained how the dining experience works to new patrons. There is a wide array of options to cater to everyone's taste.

As always, delicious food, superb services, and enough meat to put you in a coma.

Meal is pretty much 'all-you-can-eat' which is usually a bad sign, but this was very good. We self served our 'sides' from a buffet line (veggies, rice and beans, salad, etc.) then flip a cardboard marker by our plate and the chefs will come by with their skewer to slice you off whatever meat they had just prepared (beef, chicken, pork, lamb, each in several different preparations, some better than others, you are very likely to find several you love, we did.) Dessert was also delicious, but not as good as the meats. Very pricey, but worth it for special occasion. We would have no hesitation of eating here again.
Turning vegetarian, only kidding!
"It will definitely be a while before I need a big steak or other meat item from any other restaurant for a while" said my husband who wants meat at every meal. I personally think next time I need to remember to alter meat selections with my salad buffet offerings. The service and desserts were also amazing.

Very good service and food, but very noisy. Went here to celebrate my 3 year aniversary with my boyfriend, but found it very hard to talk because of loud people.
It is a great place but do not go if you want it quiet!
Made my parents feel special
I took my parents out to celebrate a birthday and Mother's Day. The service was great and the food was wonderful. My parents had never been and often feel awkward in places that cost as much as Fogo. However, the hostess and all of the servers were able to make them feel at ease. The quality of the food was great. My dad had never had a piece of cheesecake that tasty.

The food was really good, but I would have really loved to get a sauce to dip the meat in. For the money you pay, it seems like you should have some condiments for the meat.

My only comment. We had a group of 8 seated very close to the table behind us. I am of average weight. It was very hard to squeeze through chairs to get to Salad bar.. I really liked the apple salad. I am a vegetarian and was able to have a very satisfying meal.

Food was great as usual, but we were seated next to the dishes in the dining room. This was a little annoying. The server was polite but we were asked every 5 minutes if everything was fine, this became irritating.

Always a wonderful place to eat and enjoy dinner
Hostess was not aware of those coming in and out. We had a reservation for two, a couple came shortly after us without a reservation and were seated before us. How rude!
We have been to this restaurant many times and have always had great food and great service . The salad bar is by far the best in town and you won't be disappointed by their meat selections.
