Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse - Boston Ratings and Reviews
Been to this restaurant three times. First time was wonderful (a graduation), second time was a business affair (very nice too). These two prior times there seemed like there was more of a selection of meats. The third time not as impressed. It's very expensive and you need to love meat.
It was ok. I had told the restaurant that it was a birthday in the reservation but no mentioned was made about it. The other thing I really thought it was ridiculous is that e even though they have a price with meet or without for adults - they don't have this for kids so kids pay 1/2 price but of the full amount even if they don't eat any meat.
Utter disappointment. This is our third try in as many years and it will be the last. While the Fogo de Chao in Dallas was great every single time (and we went pretty frequently) the Boston location has never measured up. Our server was inattentive at best and there were long stretches of time between gaucho's coming to the table, even with all cards turned to green. At one point we waited more than 15 minutes for someone to pass by with food, but even the meats were largely uninspiring. Considering the cost, I would expect the service and the food to be much better.
Food great, love the idea
Service was sub par, probably cuz of the numbers
We had a waitress with curly hair that probably didn't want to be their, it's hard to have a good time when someone who doesn't at least act that they r happy they r waiting on u, serves u
I'm sure it was a single incident, as I have went to them multiple times b4 and the service was superb
It felt like being on a cruise ship as opposed to a nice steak house. Long lines around the "market table" and tables are packed very close together. Sides were eh, salad bar was eh, if you are someone that enjoys all cuts of meat and wants to eat $60 worth that is the only appeal to this place. They did offer a nice complimentary dessert because we were celebrating a birthday and overall service was very good.
My girlfriend and I went during restaurant week and were extremely disappointed. Right off the bat we asked the waitress to repeat the directions about how Fogo worked and when to turn over the coaster(Yes, it was our first time). Our waitress was both extremely quiet and it was obvious English was not her first language.
My girlfriend told the waitress she was allergic to tree nuts. She responded with "I will go get" at which point we looked at each other with a confused look, go get what? The head waitress came over to explain which options were gluten free at which point my girlfriend explained again she was allergic to tree nuts, not gluten.
The salad bar was nothing special however the meat was great, when they came by with the good stuff. We felt like it was hard to get what you asked for. I had asked for more of a specific meat which was right next to us at the time and the gentlemen took the meat and walked away.
We had also ordered drinks and finished them midway through our meal. We were never asked if we wanted another round(which we did). After a few minutes we decided we would finish up and go somewhere else for a drink after.
We were extremely unimpressed. When you price your restaurant at $50+ a person expectations are higher than normal. I would have preferred to spend more on a nicer restaurant on Boylston or less for a better atmosphere on Newbury. Especially considering Fogo looks out towards the fairmont Copley plaza but they has the curtain pulled shut and it felt like a banquet hall. Won't be back. Won't be recommending it.
We visited Fogo during Boston's most recent restaurant week, which might easily explain the OUTSTANDING value rating. Unlimited meat service, a freshly stocked and rotating salad bar, dessert, and amazing service to boot... for only $38 a piece! Very impressed
We ordered from the regular menu. All of the food was great quality. Delicious. Marketside bar was outstanding and many delicious choices. Black bean stew was fabulous!
All of the meats were flavorful, tender and served so beautifully. We liked the red and green circles which indicated to serve meat or not. The sides at the table were beyond great. The cheesy rolls, carmelized bananas and polenta really made the meal. We were continually impressed.
Waitstaff was always available and attentive.
4 of us were there for the restaurant week. I moved here from Denver and wanted our friends from Boston to try it, so the restaurant week was a perfect opportunity, but the selection was not like what I had expected. Denver has a better selections and service was faster and better in Denver.
This was my first stop for Boston's Dine-Out during the month of August. I initially thought it would be a sit down service, but found out that it was more like a buffet, which I didn't mind. We were seated quickly and was told everything we needed to know for the restaurant week menu. We were constantly asked if we wanted some type of meat when our signal coasters were flipped to "Yes"; our plates were never empty. I had a bit of the veggies and fruit -- I liked how fresh the pineapple was. Most of the cuts of meat were too fatty and/or large for my liking. My favorite cut was the prime top sirloin, which was cut thinly and had the most flavor. The meats were seasoned alright and we were finished eating after 30 minutes. The Pao de Queijo (cheese bread) had me grabbing seconds and the crispy polenta was delicious. We waited for a while for anyone to acknowledge that we were done... I got the chocolate mousse cake and my boyfriend got the key lime pie for dessert, and they were the thinnest slices of pie and cake I have ever been served... They were only centimeters wide, but I guess it's okay because we were super full already? Not sure if that was because we were ordering from the Dine Out Boston menu or not, but it left a pretty bad impression.
Speaking of bad impressions, I felt like I was going to get stepped on / walked into heading to the washroom... and unfortunately, I did. A server rushing to get somewhere stepped on my foot and the side of my shoe while I was going back to my seat. He looked apologetic but continued on his way. I looked down and I noticed that the side of my shoes were totally scuffed with black marks (the bottom of my shoe is white) and some parts of it were scrapped off... I used a magic eraser to try to clean it off, but my shoe is still damaged. All in all, an okay experience. I don't think I will be coming back here again. It's a great novelty restaurant though if you've never gone to a Brazilian steakhouse.
Not the best Brazilian steakhouse I've been to but it was a good meal none the less. Only thing with this spot and most other places like this is that you can sit with an empty glass for an hour. These places would make so much more money if they keep glasses full. Maybe employe a few more bartenders.
