Went for daughter's birthday - we have been to several of these restaurants over the years and this one is our favorite - ambiance is better than most; better wine list and staff is always attentive Only complaint is that it is downtown next to the mall on the river walk - parking is difficult - they have always offered valet and now they don't - we ended up having to park in the mall parking garage - in the future I would recommend über ride and being dropped at the front

Steak was mediocre. Roasted asparagus/split pea soup was phenomenal. Would go again for the soup and salad, which seems strange. However, certain members of our party were able to get a discounted price for just doing the soup and salad, which should be called soup and appetizer bar.

I'm originally from Chicago and Fogo has always been a favorite of mine. The food was just as good as I remembered but the service was sub par. I couldn't even tell you who our waitress was. All in all it was still a great experience. Huge bonus that small children eat free!

We went for Father's Day. Most of the meat was comparable to Chama Gaucha and other Brazilian steakhouses I've been to. Parking is non-existent so we used the Rivercenter Mall parking lot and walked over. Our server was very nice and the service was good for such a busy day. Some of the meats were not flavored well. The lamb chop was tasteless and disgusting and some of the chicken was very plain. All of the beef was very good and very well seasoned.

Wife and I went here to celebrate her birthday and our anniversary. Great service and great food. We arrived 30 minutes early and we only waited a few minutes and they had a table ready. There was plenty of room, we did not feel like we were packed in there as many other restaurants. Highly recommend.

For our Family's first time, we had a great experience which enabled us to return back in the future for sure! The Waitress we had throughout our dinner was just superb. Please recognize her efforts. The meat guys which I call them were very polite and attentive. The food was very tasteful and delicious.

The valet is no more, this would have been good to know since the DNC was in town when we went. Service and food were vey good as usual but thet struggle a bit when the restaurant was as busy as it was during our visist. Excellent choice for 19 year olds birthday dinner.

No set parking nor do they validate parking. Parking was a hassle. I requested certain meats cooked with little or no salt in my reservation. Nothing was prepared for me but when I finally did get my message through 1 chef did then take care of me. The only other complaint was that 2 out of 3 meats were overcooked. I don't think I will go back to the San Antonio location which is a let down because I work 5 days a week South of San Antonio.

We had a good time! It was a little bit pricey, but everything tastes wonderful. I was really excited about the lamb, and it was brought out last (after I asked several times). But everything else was delicious! I also tried the Lavender Southside drink and it was great.

This was extremely underwhelming. The dining room was half full yet it took over 30 minutes to have drink orders taken.

We requested and sat in Michael's section. This was the third time we've sat in his section,and we will request it again on our next visit. The level of his service is always above excellent. In observing him with other guest his level of service is the rule not the exception. The food as always was excellent and we are looking forward to our next visit.

We waited for an hour after our plates were cleared before we got our check to pay. It was very disappointing and no one ever came back to see if we wanted our drinks refilled while we were eating. We told them separate checks and they ended up still bringing one check refusing to fix it after we mentioned it. And to make it better, they said their was a birthday at our table even though there was not and brought us a dessert. I was not pleased at all.

Always good food. Service took a while at times. They NO LONGER have valet parking and THEY DON'T validate parking. So you have to park in the garage if you can find a spot and walk to the restaurant.

Dining at Fogo is always a pleasure. The attention to detail from beginning to end is outstanding. The meats offered were all cooked to perfection. We especially enjoyed the bacon wrapped filet mignon. We can't say enough about the wonderful service we received from the moment we entered the restuarant until we left. Thank you for making our 30th anniversary so memorable!
Great for Special Occasions
We have eaten at Fogo in San Antonio many times and this time it seemed just a little bit off. The salad bar was a bit different - not as many selections. The meats were all excellent, as usual, but the portions were tightly controlled (thin slivers). I'm sure we could have asked for more, but it was just different than previous experiences. We will continue to go to Fogo and will absolutely recommend them to friends and family (and complete strangers!) who visit San Antonio. We just hope it was an "off night" for them.
The food was great, some of the meat was too red, but good.
It was an awesome experience!
I would love to here over an over again! Really experience for all!
Go late, get bad food...always wonderful service.
My husband and I visited the restaurant around 9pm. For the first time, the food was bland and the biscuits were hard and cold. Every time I told them about the biscuits they apologized and brought out more cold and hard biscuits. After a few times, we finally got warm biscuits but they were still hard. When we were leaving I told one of the waitresses about it. She said they had to sent the head chefs home because there were there since the morning and the backup chefs may have been over cooking the biscuits. My advice would be to never go to the restaurant late or you will get bad food.
Best in town!
This place was amazing! They were very flexible with our reservation and seated us right away. I knew right from the get go that we were in for a treat. The staff was outstanding and the food was even better. From the salad bar to the main entrees everything was perfect. Even the drinks were great!!!
Went as a little couple thing for a downtown staycation. Nice little buffet style but can be up there in price. The cost is worth it if you plan to stay and eat a lot. Salad bar is absolutely amazing.
We love it!! Always a wonderful experience when we eat here.

I have eaten quite frequently at a Brazilian-style restaurant in Albuquerque, NM called Tucano's. I think your chain designer might be well served to check it out... The atmosphere there is very pleasant, yours, not so much... The Salad Bar there is more than fantastic, yours, mundane and unexciting to say the least. While the food on the salad bar was very good, the presentation of the food was 'standard' at best and could have been seen at a cafeteria anywhere! Nothing special. I suggest you make a statement with you salad bar and Go Tropical in that statement. If you would like me to help you, I would be glad to. I used to run a five star in another life time when I was young... Sincerely in health, Jim Brown 575-973-1743
Benefit of the doubt
I have never been to the San Antonio location and will say I was quite disappointed. 4 weeks prior I visited the Fogo de Chao in Washington. The experience there was so much fun and very gratifying. I was very excited to take visitors to have the same dining experience I had but was very disappointed at the result. We were seated in the back and were told by our waitress that there were 16 different meat selections and she explained the process, we never saw that waitress again. The salad bar was scarce as there were many people and the selections were not being replaced in a timely fashion. Now to our meat experience...There were times when our cards were turned to green and no one came by and when they finally did, they had very little left on the skewer. The selection was always sirloin that came by. We had to ask for the chicken selection and had to tell a few servers no one was coming by our table. About 45 minutes after we were seated they sat a table next to us of approximately 25 people. We were astonished at the selections of meat they started to receive. We heard, ribeye, beef ribs, filet mignon and Parmesan lamb...what??? By this time we were full of sirloin and bacon wrapped beef and chicken. I am hoping the experience we had was maybe because we were the first to be seated in the back. Nonetheless, I think every paying customer should receive the same dining experience if you're expected to pay the same price for a meal.

The only thing I had a problem with was trying to get a refill on tea. When I finally did get someone to refill my drink, the waiter put a picture of tea on the counter next to me and said I could refill it whenever I needed to. To me, that shows laziness and inattention to customer service.
What an amazing birthday treat!! I loved every bit of food I tried although I was to full to try everything. We had the full dinner experience and it was worth every penny! The staff was wonderful and the environment was beautiful, I would definitely recommend Fogo de Chao to my friends!
