Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse - San Antonio Ratings and Reviews
My husband really enjoyed the restaurant. I'm on the fence about this entire experience. I indicated that the mashed potatoes were a bit bland and very hard and asked that they bring us a new plate and was told they were all the same. The fried plantains were very mushy. We only really enjoyed 2 of all the meat options they provided. Seasoning was an issue with some of the meats. There were also issues with the temperature, some were more on the medium well instead of medium as we requested. The website indicates there is more than the Full Churrasco Experience dinner option but no other options were given to us. Seems like they really just push for the full experience.
I will not be returning to this restaurant. I think I prefer to go to a nice steak restaurant, order an entrée and enjoy my dinner without having so many different options being rushed to my table.
I must say that the dessert was spot on. I enjoyed that the most.
The service was fast and efficient. The meats were great. The only complaint is that the salad bar didn't have what I wanted, but it did have the best bacon me and my wife ever had! If you go don't eat beforehand because you fill up quickly. I was stuffed about 20 min after we were seated.
Brought my family to San Antonio on a business trip. Decided to do something different for dinner. This was great food with great service. The meats were all tender and flavorful. The wait staff attentive without being annoying. The price is pretty high but for what you get was quite reasonable. Would recommend to anyone looking for good food and something a bit different than your normal fare restaurant.
Every cut of meat was tough and lacked any seasoning. The house special was one of the toughest pieces of beef I have had in some time. If I had to guess I would say they were using select beef and trying to pass it for prime. The chicken was overcooked and dry. Overall the service was good, but the food was lacking. For a Brazilian steakhouse I will stick to Tejas De Brazil.
Food is great and plenty, literally depending on your appetite, or should I say capacity to indulge. Tonight though, the service slacked a bit: we asked one server for the bread, we had to ask two others before it finally got to us. The same with the coffee and the lamb chops and the beef ribs that never came.
They were busy but the service was terrible. I had to asked three times for my drink they always bring a side of mashed potatoes with me all I had to ask twice for that.
I had to asked twice for the check and after asking the second time it still took him 15 minutes to bring to me.
I am clearly in the minority here because the place was PACKED and there were people begging for tables. We were seated in a nice room with only a few tables, so it was quieter than the main dining room. The server was helpful regarding ordering and we opted to go big and do the entire choice of meats. This is where it started falling flat. First off, the meat servers come by and ask how you like your meat cooked and based on what you tell them they slice from different areas. I asked for medium rare across the board and only received one slice that was actually medium rare. Everything else leaned towards medium well which is just no way to serve meat (IMHO). The meat was also bland, it really needed a sauce or something which no one mentioned, but when I asked, was told they have four which we requested. 10 minutes go by, I ask again, 15 minutes, finally we get the sauces. None of them were exceptional and none really helped the flavorless meat. I am bored of continuing to try these flavorless meats after trying around 8, so I ask for a to go container which they do not offer!! Uhm, you charged me $52 for all I can eat, I barely ate anything and now I have to leave all this behind?? I was not planning on eating it, but my dogs or chickens would have loved it. Now I am not at all happy with the price and feel like a jerk for barely eating any of these poor animals which are now going into the TRASH. For the amount of meat being continually sliced off the skewers it starts really sinking in that these are not well-kept, organic animals you are eating, they are (most-likely) crammed into cages and dying horrific deaths only to be thrown in the trash. So, obviously, I did not enjoy this experience at all, I would never return and I would never recommend. And yes, I will continue to eat meat, but I will choose a cut I know I like and have it prepared the way I like and hope it has wonderful flavor for $52.
Sadly, I hoped this review would be written a little differently. We are huge fans of Brazilian Steak Houses and frequent another in town quite often. Because we were staying downtown we decided to give Fogo a try. Years ago it was THE place to go, but service and food quality has truly dropped.
The sides brought to the table were like they had sat around for a while... the mashed potatoes were dried and clumpy... I like rare cuts of meat and when I asked for rare on MULTIPLE occasions, I was given medium to well... the manager (who made amazing drinks) came by and we got 1 small cut that was close to rare and that was it. We asked a few times for raw horseradish and after the 4th try they finally brought the right thing.
We were not impressed with the quality of service either... it was more along the lines of general waiter/waitress... not the norm for sure!
We truly wasted our money on this meal, as we both left looking for something else.
I got there shortly after opening. Cheese bread was not warm and server seamed a little annoyed. Would have been a bad experiance if the other staff didnt pick up slack and warm smile that our server that greated us at the table lacked. My wife and i were out for our 18year anniversary. She eats meat well to med well and they accommodated. I have been to other Brazilian steak houses were i thought i got more for the money. Bottom line i expected to be impressed and i felt so so. Not waste money it was just ok.
