Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse - San Antonio Ratings and Reviews

We had to wait at the bar 20 min past our reservation time. Our first server asked us if we needed an overview of how the service worked, which most of us did, but she turned her head while talking, went through the details like she had done it a million times before, thus most of us didn't catch what was said. When asked to say it again, she actually showed exasperation. This server seemed upset and short until the very end of our meal. Another server helped out and was great which made up for the first one pretty well. The food was out of this world, the meat servers were great too. The noise level wasn’t the best.

Very attentive and energetic staff members. Salad/cheese/ham/soup bar complements the main course which is endless amount of proteins. Went for Restaurant Week so menu was limited to selected cuts but still plentiful and delicious. Their 3rd course is either Chocolate Mousse, Key Lime Pie or Strawberry Cheesecake. All three are palate pleasing.

Decided to give the place a try instead of Texas de Brazil for the Restaurant Week. Big mistake. The Restaurant Week menu was a reduced menu and had only very limited selections. I was sat in a corner after informing them that I was there for the Restaurant Week. Service was also very slow. It wasn't until at the end when they were trying to rush me out they asked what they could bring me, which of course was pointless because I was there for the churrascaria experience and wasn't expecting a "just tell us what we need to do to get rid of you" attitude. I've been fortunate enough to have visited many churrascaria restaurants around the country and this was by far the worst experience I've had. Needless to say, I won't be returning, at least to the San Antonio location. I'd suggest that anyone looking for a churrascaria in San Antonio visit Texas de Brazil instead for a much pleasant experience.

There was just way to many people the meats were not coming out fast enough im guessing due to alot of customers but the meats were also tough like the cooks were rushing to prep it I love this place, I go about 3 times a months but I give my birthday experience 3 stars.

Great food and wine list along with a nice romantic ambience. We visited during restaurant week to celebrate a wedding anniversary for the in-laws. Unfortunately, we were disappointed with the service experience from having to ask for side items three times to our waiter strong selling the full menu and not the restaurant week short menu, which we thought was just as sufficient for dinner.

With two other brazilian steakhouses in town of equal food quality, this one would be my last choice due to the service. We did have one server, Mike, who was friendly when present, but the hostess couldn't wait to drop menus and run, as well as the waitress who initially wouldn't even wait for everyone to be seated to speed-read the process of food service and take drink orders. Likewise the food service was extremely slow.

All in all, a good experience...! The variety of meats was excellent and the staff were very attentive. If I had one thing to whine about, it would be the lack of hot vegetables...mashed potato was the only veg on the evening we attended. I understand that it's all about the meat...but, a couple of additional hot vegetables would still have been welcome. Whine over...well worth a visit

For as many servers as we were introduced to, we sure did not have the equating service. It was very inconsistent and there were several times we tried to get someone to help our table and we were not helped. I also ordered a drink I wanted with my dessert and I hadn't received it until well after and basically when we were ready to leave. Disappointing for this type of restaurant in a high tourism area. I hope visitors to our city get better service than what my friends and I had gotten that evening.

Food was on point as always. We did the restaurant week option which I feel was a mistake. The issue wasnt with the selection of meats offered but the service. It was my sister's first time and I was disappointed. My sister asked if we had to ask for service (meat) and I told her the servers come to you. Multiple times we had to ask for a server to come over. I don't want to believe it was because we chose the less exspensive option but I feel it might have been a reason why we were not taken care of as I had experienced before.

Such amazing food and staff they always where checking on us every 5 min. AWESOME TEAM WORK... My family and I just love this place we always enjoy coming here...I have always recommen friends and family to come here for dinner. Thank You we will be back soon 😊

We are frequent Dallas Fogo De chao visitors and are never disappointed like we were here. The portions of the potatos were small and they were runner and wet than very ever seen. The plantains were mashed up for reason pretty much anytime they brought a new set out. We were extremely disappointed here it this location. Felt we wasted 120 dollars.

Went there for a special occasion and the waiter asked if we were there for any special occasion. Why bother noting it on the reservation if they aren't going to read it. I've loved every other Fogo location. This one was just too touristy.

We were seated in an area which had no one else around us so the Gauchos would bring the meat offerings to the tables which were close together and only occasionally came to our table.
When we mentioned it to a server, he acted like we were exaggerating and nothing changed.
Kind of disappointing.

We had a great time as a family with adult children. Not sure I would bring little ones here but noticed other people did and it did not seem to be a problem. Salad bar was outstanding and service was very good on top of the incredible steak & pork loin & lamb chops! Have been to the one in Houston and it seemed a lot more casual in San Antonio. Very good overall experience.

Our lunch was very good. The selections at the salad bar were extensive. Our waiter did an extremely good job of taking care of our group of 10 and making sure our needs were met. The meat servers were a little lax in that the sometimes would serve one side of the table and not the other side, so we had to request meat. All in all, it was a very enjoyable experience.

Had heard good things about this restaurant, was not overly impressed. The good cuts of meat were being brought out kinda late and it seemed like there were not enough waiters to keep up with the flow. You had to wait a long time for them to bring out more meat and it was all the same cuts of meat.

I pick this place for a special occasion celebration of being with my partner for 7 yrs..had a great time service was great, and food was amazing. I would highly recommend this place too all my friends and family, you must try it out..great time looking forward to going back soon.

My mother and I returned to this location because of the service and food we received last year while vacationing in San Antonio. This year was a disappointment. We asked for medium well for our meat selection and we received rare or burnt selections. Every patron around us were receiving refills without asking but we had to ask. I felt that we were being ignored. Our ticket was left on the table but we weren't asked if we wanted dessert, which we did. The waitress stated she thought someone else had asked us and I told her that wasn't the case. I ordered two slices of cheesecake with the strawberry glaze to go. The waitress returned with the cheesecake on dessert plates. I told her that we needed it to go. She got an attitude and walked away with the cheesecake. She returned with the cheesecake in the to go boxes. When we got ready to eat the cheesecake, we noticed that there was hardly and glaze and a small sliver of a strawberry.
Our experience this year was not worth the time or money that was spent.

Amber and Crystal were the ladies constantly checking on us. The service was fantastic, and it was because of these two young women! They need to be given a raise and a large pat on the back. The food was incredible.

It was Sunday evening and not to crowded. I called ahead to see if we could bring a special cake in and it was no problem. Our server was very accommodating. Good place to go for groups. Everyone can eat what they like.
