This restaurant is excellent. The food is high quality, fresh, and delicious. The service is impeccable; in fact, second to none. The personnel is courteous, professional, and very attentive. You truly feel pampered!

My partner and I visited for Valentine's Day and were not quite as impressed as we thought we'd be after all of the reviews we found online. We wanted a romantic setting with great service and we got the opposite. We sipped our wine (which was one of the 3 good things there) and had to listen to a crying baby and a toddler crawling under the table next to us. The cold bar was lackluster and bland. The buffet style of cold items was classless in a restaurant that shockingly made Minneapolis list of top 10 most romantic places to dine. They pride themselves on meat but ours was either way too well done or very rare when we asked twice for medium well. Service was slow and the men serving the meats would constantly walk by our table and other around us ignoring our green cards indicating we wanted more meat on our bare plates. Its as of they picked who they wanted to serve and who they didn't want to. We only got served when we waved at or shouted to a server speeding past us. We were lucky if they noticed us. Over all our first and last visit was mediocre at best. A $130 dollar bill is not worth what we recvied and especially on Valentine's day. I would not recommended this place to any couples or anyone looking for romantic settings and professional service.

Love this restaurant. Hate the location. Almost got mugged walking less than a block from the parking garage in broad daylight. Thanks to the intervention of a stranger, we made it ok, but will not go back. Horrible neighborhood for such a great restaurant.

I say this every time I go here, YOU ARE TREATED like you are the only customer. They are always at your beck and call. Who could ask for anything more. Then the food is exceptional as always. Told co workers about it and everyone is excited to try it. I may need to ask for a referral bonus :) If I could I would go here at least once a week.

It's a great environment - it's just very packed in, many tables are very close together and if you partake in the Marketplace then you do have to weave in an out of tables a bit. It's a bit loud but worth doing at least once

We have been here a few times now and they never disappoint! The food is amazing! The service is the best we have ever had. Our water glasses never got less than half full and they were always picking up plates and bringing new sides. We will continue to be loyal costumers here.

Our family of five adults went here to celebrate a bday. The food was good, but not for the price charged. We all had one beverage(2alcohol, 3sodas) and at the end, split 3 deserts among us. The meat and salad bar options were great.
Our bill, with tip, was $420. So be prepared to spend A LOT of cash if you go. The other suggestion I would give a potential customer would be to get your meat all at once. We were interrupted no fewer than 25 times to get more meat, then another 20 times to ask if we wanted more drinks, desert, could they remove our plate, etc. I found it almost impossible to carry on any sort of conversation without the interruption of wait staff. Since the room is large and open, noise carries, so anyone with hearing issues would be at a disadvantage also.

One of my favorite restaurants here in Minneapolis, Fogo de Chao always brings out the excellent quality of food and exceptional service to all its guests. The salad bar alone is amazing and their roasted meats are always exceptional. You can always request the particular cut you like and how well its done and they will always serve it to you no matter how busy they get.
I love this place and hope to come here again soon...Thank you Fogo

This place has really fallen from what it once was. Every table in the bar area had been moved by a prior group, but when they left the employees did not bother to put them back where they belonged. The bar itself was dirty, covered in sticky drink residue and scattered menus. The bartenders, two younger guys were terse and un-professional, especially given the cost of drinks. The drinks themselves were sloppily made, slow in coming and poorly mixed.
The salad bar seemed to have less selections than I remember, but that could be me. The meat was about as good as it always was. Our waitress was friendly and mostly attentive, but again, unprofessional for the amount of money we were spending.
It's truly unfortunate as this WAS one of our favorite places for a nice date night and it's sad how lousy it was. Even the clientele seems to have changed, lots of ball caps, dirty t-shirts and little kids at 10pm. My wife suggested that we try one more time over the lunch hour but we both agree that we will NEVER go back for dinner...there are a lot better places to spend that kind of money.

If I hadn't done my homework on the restaurant prior to going, I probably would have left without eating. The restaurant is very loud and crowded, and I couldn't hear half of what our waiter said. The meat is amazing, but I was put off by not having a menu, standing in a long line for the 1st course, and not ever feeling like I had any of the waiters' full attention.

Come hungry because you won't leave that way.
Great variety of meats to choose from. Salad bar had very wide choices of 'cold' houses - and those we tried were very tasty. Some spicing might be unusual but still very enjoyable.
We arrived at lunch opening and the noise level increased in steps as the room filled. Still, very reasonable even when we were leaving.

Don't go with guests if you know they like medium well steaks not with the wait. Long line waiting to get cars super noisy. Made many requests before they actually brought out meal. Felt like cattle in a high end place.
Server spilled blood all over my shirt from the plate and was
Lucky to get a re fill on the water.
