Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse - San Antonio Ratings and Reviews

The food was as expected: great quality and selection. The service was great, maybe too attentive at times. One wait staff member would check on us every 5-10 minutes it seemed like which was becoming a little too excessive; it would interrupt my conversations with my boyfriend. But other than that brunch is the way to go! Same selection and quality, more affordable price.
Oh, the fresh caipirinhas were DELISH!! Very refreshing with a perfect balance of sweet and sour.

Was bad experience, we set for about an hour and we asked for specific meat more than ten 6 times and no one brought it to us. The problem the waitress kept asking us " is every thing ok" and we told her very time we asked for this meat and we didn't get it yet. Also we asked for well done and same thing every time they come they tell us we have medium only and will come back for well done and then they disappear. I wouldn't recommend wasting your money there

Was recommended this place by numerous co-workers for my 7th wedding anniversary. Was pricey, but worth it. My wife loved all the items on the full market bar while I was happy with the different meat choices they offered. Will keep this in mind for special occasions.

We had a coupon and they didn't want to honor it. I received it in email from Fogo de Chao. It was for $39 meals instead of $49.95. She said that it was a separate menu. No rib eye, lamb chop or filet. I told her that I didn't know that a buffet could be limited. What would they do? Put a sign on our table that says "these people are using a coupon, don't offer rib eye, lamb chop etc......? Dumb. And she made us feel so cheap. I had put the coupon in the leather bill sleeve. She brought it back to me at the table and held open the entire email (letter size paper - 2 sheets) and leaned over to tell me that it had restrictions. SO embarrassing and humiliating.

We have been to Fogo de Chao many times, but this was the first time in San Antonio. Compared to other FDC locations, this one was disappointing. There was no one available (at dinnertime) who knew anything about their wine list, the meat servers were very few and far between, and the meat itself seemed to be of a lower grade than we actually buy at the grocery store. The filet and the NY strip in particular were very disappointing. We will not be back to this location. We spent $200 for two people to eat meat, salad bar, a $62 bottle of wine (that we looked up on our wine app that sells for $19 retail. That's a 3X markup for wine!). Not a good value at all, considering the meat quality was below par.

The food was good and 'all you can eat'...but understand the soup/salad/appetizer part of your meal is a buffet. The main dinner is served by roving waiters, each with a single item. Alcoholic drinks and desserts are NOT 'all you can eat' but you can certainly get your fill of everything else!

It was our 1st time although we did enjoy the atmosphere, the food was very bland. We have tried other brazillian restaurants same style and we noticed the meats really didn't have flavor more if a charbroiled taste. We would however recommend others. The service was excellent. The host &staff were very pleasant.

Michael was an excellent server. Not once that we needed something did he allow us to wait before it was right in front of us. Muhammed was also great. Anytime I wanted some of whatever cut he was carrying, he would know what I liked and would always come back with a fresh piece. Over all great experience!

Me parecio un poco feo el lugar, muy buen servicio, la barra de ensaladas no muy buena, pero lo que menos me gusto de todo fue que el restaurante y la distribucion de mesas y hasta la decoracion parecia buffet chino....

The salad bar was great.
The selection of meats were mostly on the medium to well done range. Most Brazilian steakhouses also offer rare also.
At any given point throughout the night, there was only one server going around to tables at a time. They were also not very vigilant about who had cards turned to green. Our table got passed over many times.
We ended up having to speak to the manager to get proper service.
Overall, we would not return to Fogo de Chao, and would rather take our business to Texas de Brazil, or Chama Gaucha.

Dinner was absolutely amazing. This was our first time here we had heard from other friends about this restaurant. They raved about it as a must try. My wife and I decided to go for her birthday. The whole staff was friendly & the atmosphere is great. We got to most of the meats on the menu. Everyone onone of them had a diffrent flavor and were delicious. I say if it is your first time, hold back on the sides and try the meats!! My wife even got a complimentary dessert for her birthday. All the staff was really friendly and worked together as a team I would definitely recommend this restaurant to any family & friends we know. We will be back soon.

I took myself to lunch for my birthday. I was acknowledged and sat immediately. My waiter, John, attended to me very quickly. He explained the food bar, how the meat is brought to your table, and asked if I was celebrating anything. When I told him about my birthday, he provided me with a birthday desert. Cheesecake with raspberry topping. The kitchen even wrote happy birthday on the plate in the syrup and put a candle in the topping. It was an extremely nice gesture. The meat was melt in your mouth delicious, the vegetables on the bar were crisp and fresh. I will be going back and bringing friends in the future.

This is one of our favorite high-end restaurants. It is on the expensive side of pricing for a meal however, the food is worth the price. There wasn't one item we weren't fond of. The service is impeccable and the atmosphere is very clean and orderly. We have only been on weekends so I cannot comment on weeknight dining. We really look forward to eating here and will return as often as we can.

This was our first time at Fogo de Chao and it was a wonderful experience to celebrate my finaces birthday! Our waiter was very attentive and kind, the meat carvers would very nice and would remember what meats we liked. His birthday cake was so delicous and so sweet to have Happy Birthday written on it!

celebrating my 65th birthday with close friends. They had never been before but had heard of Fogo de Chao. we were impressed with the quality of food and the fabulous service we received. Food was delicious and we had a good variety. We did have one complaint but could have just been an over site. they came by with the filet mignon and it wasn't medium like we wanted so they said they would get some more and be right back. They did not return with anymore of the filet mignon and was disappointed. I guess we should have asked but we were full by the time we thought of asking. I was surprised with the birthday cheesecake. It was wonderful.

Food was great, service was excellent right up until the very end. We had been in the restaurant for about 1.5 hours and were finished with our food. It took 15-20 min for our waitress to come over with the check. When she did finally drop off the check it took forever to run our card. My husband finally went to get the manager-- who came over and apologized for a new computer system and lots of people trying to run cards at the same time. She said our card was authorizing and that we could leave without tip because it would eventually go through. We didn't think that was fair so we ended up signing the regular receipt and adding a tip for them to supposedly run later.... The charge is still pending on the card so I hope it went through. In all it took us over 2 hours .....

Everyone who visits Fogo de Chao has a great dining experience and we wanted to taste for ourselves what all the hoopla was about. I had received a gift card to this place for my bday and it sat in my purse for 2 years. After eating there for lunch I cannot believe it took us so long to redeem it. The food is amazing as are the servers. We had a great culinary experience!!!!
