Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse - Minneapolis Ratings and Reviews

They changed my reservation from 7pm to 10pm (they close at 10)
Food seemed to be limited and dry. I did not feel like we got great service like usual. They never asked how our dinner was, felt like we got rushed out.

This was our first experience at Fogo de Chao. We have always heard great things about them so we wanted to see for ourselves. We weren't disappointed, in fact we were very impressed with the service from start to finish. The food was amazing as well as the staff. Our waiter was very attentive. The chicken wrapped in bacon was very tasty.... Mmmmm... Mmmm great as well as the steak. The food was always Delivered HOT, Can you say " mouth watering "!!!! Our first time definitely won't be our last. Thanks staff for making this a great FIRST for us.

Not going to lie, Fogo de Chao is expensive but when you think about everything you're getting, it's worth it. I mean come on, it's ALL YOU CAN EAT MEAT!
I've always come here for Restaurant Week in the past so I wouldn't feel as guilty about how much I was spending. However, I always leave feeling satisfied and deep in a food coma - this night wasn't any different. Everything from the popovers to the salad bar to the meat is amazing. So much flavor! I could easily fill up on the popovers alone, they're THAT good! The meats are so tender and juicy. I'm not a salad person but the salad bar had such a great variety of salad, cheeses, and other vegetables you just can't skip over it! Plus they're good when paired with the meats. My favorites are the rib-eye, garlic sirloin, top/bottom sirloin, and the filet mignon - yummy!
Not to mention the service is fantastic - I don't know how they do it but they fill your water, switch out your plates, and replace your appetizers without you even noticing. Magic!

We took my in laws and their parent's to FOGO during restaurant week. It was their first time and absolutely loved it. They are already asking when the next restaurant week is to make reservations for that one as well.

Went for restaurant week, had reservations for 10 at 930pm. Nephew got there early and was told to take a table in the back before its gone, and that was before 9pm. Food was great but being in the back they hardly came around. When the desserts came, I noticed our desserts were thinly sliced compared to the other customers. Would go again but will make reservations well ahead of time to get in earlier.

Was not what I aspected to spend my birthday dinner. Was seated by the entrance where the waiting chair were and got horrible services. Every time the meats will come to our table, it was the last end of it. Waited 20mins for desserts and had to flagged down a manager after waiting another 20 mins to pay our tab. Didn't even get to order another drink since no one even stop to asks.
Thanks for my birthday dinner, but very disappointed. Wished I had a better experience for my birth day.

We visited Fogo de Chao for my son's 21st birthday. We attended during the lunch service. Our waiter greeted us at our table, explained the process, invited us to start with the salad bar and then we never saw him again.
We had to grab a manager to order beverages and side sauces. The buser/attendant did a great job of refilling waters, removing used plates, etc..
The flow of gauchos with meats was much slower than I have ever encountered. We had to wait several minutes between visits. We also had to specifically ask for filet as it wasn't presented to our table in the first 40 minutes of our visit.
Overall, we felt that Fogo de Chao was a bit of a bust for a birthday lunch. No need to visit again soon.

It was wonderful, our grandaughter had to admit it was better than her favorite restaurant. She loved it. The waitress was wonderful. We have never had the talk before we ate. Great. The gluten free was really gluten free. That is not always true, at other restaurants.

It was restaurant week which is good and bad at the same time. Great deal, free desert with the meal but cuts like rubeye and filet mignon are not served but everything served was still really good, and all you can eat. Not to mention the salad bar.

Came for a family dinner during restaurant week and found out when we arrived the four premium cuts of meat where not included in the restaurant week price so we had to pay full price for our dinner. We did receive a free dessert with our meal but the cheesecake that was served was the smallest piece of cheesecake I have ever been served in a restaurant. Also the quality of the meat was below average to what we have been served in the past. Very disappointing dinner for an above average price.

Service could be much better. At times, requests made were forgotten or took longer than necessary to accommodate. Also, it seems like food runners missed our table a few times as well. Also, when we've previously dined, there would be staff watching to give you a clean plate, or scrape crumbs of your table. We did receive clean plates after some waiting time. Table was never cleaned.
Meats were decent, a tad salty. Chimichurri and other sauces should be more readily available as well.

The food here is amazing. Incredible salad bar selections, side dishes, and all the meat you could possibly want. My favorite is the bacon wrapped chicken. It's pricey, but fun to come a few times a year. Would recommend to anyone.

A birthday meal i will remember. I go here for any special occasion that calls for great food! The service is world class! The food is hot and tasty. They made my birthday very special and memorable. Every staff member had a smile on their face and it appeared they truly loved where they worked. If you come here prepare to feel important and be pampered. It was busy but the service didn't miss a beat. Drinks always full several people checking in on us through out our meal. Worth every penny!

The bacon wrapped chicken and extravagant salad bar was absolutely phenomenal!!! The steak and lamb chops also delicious.
However for $50 a head... it was overpriced.
Even for an expensive restraunt i think that $30-$35 would have made me give additional star rating.
It also was super super loud... so loud we could not hear each other talk at the same table... nor could we hear our servers explanation as first timers how it all worked.
So there were some definite things that could be easily improved on.. also one glass of wine was like $18.
At $50 per person one glass of wine beer or beverage should be included in that high of a price... or drop the meal price...
Perhaps if the noise was reduced.. and it didnt have the buffet feel... the bill for three being well over $200 wouldn't feel like such robbery.
It was good food tho. Very good food.

Service was professional and perfect, the variety and quality of meats blew my carnivore husband's mind! One note: I had the Market Table only, and think I got a touch of food poisoning. That can happen at any salad bar/buffet, but at a restaurant at this level and price, that shouldn't happen. Great experience otherwise.

my friends love coming to Fogo De Chao to catch up and just talk about life while eating great food.
Let me tell you why this is the perfect place to dine with girlfriends and just be able to catch up after not seeing each other for a while.
They have an excellent salad bar, great if you have friends who are vegetarians or who just don't eat enough meat and prefer a good salad or two. There is so many options to their salad bar, the best is their seasonal dishes they have included. Something great for everyone, my favorite is their jalapenos soaking in their juices, this is my favorite. if you love spicy good you will understand why I appreciate their jalapenos.
Not only is the salad bar delicious, the different meats are to die for, this honestly makes it easier to eat and talk to friends because you determine when you want more food. You don't have to worry about someone always coming to bug you. I have never been here for brunch but it will be my next thing to do here.
Our server Rachel Booth was AMAZING, she was attentive and put up with my demands of fresh cheesy bread and more fried bananas! This is a great place to dine at with friends, family, colleagues, boyfriend/girlfriend. One of my all time favorite places and you cannot go wrong with the customer service you receive. Jay Miller is amazing, can't express enough how great he is and the customer service he gives to customers.

I celebrated my birthday at your steakhouse and it was a memorable experience. The service was outstanding and the food was delicious. There wasn't a wait time and we were greeted and treated with the best care. It was our first time but definitely not our last. I will highly recommend this place to everyone. I thank you for the wonderful time.

The house level was not favourable whereas there was a very loud disruptive group which lacked social graces and manners. The content of their conversation was less than appropriate considering the were children within hearing distance.
Our food was fantastic, happy servers bouncing gracefully from table to table. Drips of blood splattered upon the tablecloth, quickly making the table look quite messy however.
After dessert we sat there almost a half hour before finally getting presented with an opportunity to see our check. A manager quickly came to apologize and adjusted or bill for being the forgotten patrons on her own.
This was not our first time here, nor will it be our last. We love Fogo!

This was our first visit, but won't be our last. My teenage son, husband, and I went here to celebrate my husband's birthday. I chose Fogo de Chao because my husband is a big steak fan and I'm a vegetarian. Too often his meals cater to my needs, and this time I wanted a restaurant that would do the opposite! There was a huge variety of meats and it just kept coming. Both my husband and son were in meat-heaven. And I'm happy to say that I had plenty to eat as a vegetarian too. The salad bar had a nice variety of side dishes and salad options.
