Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse - San Diego Ratings and Reviews
We have been hear before, it is consistent. It is clean and the service is good. The only issue this time was that I wanted to order an ice wine after lunch and the server did not know anything about ice wine or to bring me a wine menu. She kept saying that the menu in front of me was the one for the ice wine, when in fact there is a separate wine menu.
Excellent dining experience! Our waiter and the rest of the staff were so attentive. They fill our water glass long before we knew it was needed to be refilled. The parade of different meats were delicious. The lamb was the favorite. It was cooked just right and seasoned just right. It was a delightful dining experience.
I have been traveling and tried out most Fogo de Chao locations around the states and never seen such fail in food tasting and service like this location. The meat tastes different and the cheesy bread was awful unlike other locations. The ambience was too loud and discomforting. The staff were rushing and frustrated for some reason. As customer didn't feel good or even enjoyed my $60 meal. Unfortunately, for the first time Fogo de Chao embarrassed me with my guests and friends
I was always a big fan of this restaurant. I don't know if they were having an "off" night or what but, the service was so slow. Normally, the Gaucho's are overwhelming you with meat offerings and this time you couldn't even see them on the floor. I don't know if there was a problem in the kitchen or a shortage of beef...(LOl) but, it wasn't a great experience and frankly, the meat didn't taste as good as usual.
The service at this location was unenjoyable. The restaurant was not full and they still made me wait 10 mins for a table even though I made reservations on Open Table. Never got a menu and was simply cast to the side and forgotten. Meats offered regularly was top or bottom sirloin. Had to ask for over premium cuts. Felt like I was constantly having to ask for service/assistance from various staff. Really disappointed.
In addition Valet parking is $18 with validation...???
I traveled to Brazil frequently on business for years, and became fond of the Churrascaria style restaurants. I even ate at the Fogo de Chao restaurant in Sao Paulo. I went to their San Diego location to celebrate my 75th birthday with wife and friends. It was great - as I expected. My guests also enjoyed it, greatly.
Food is fabulous! Service was top notch! It is spendy for what we normally do for eating out but it is a great special occasion restaurant. Celebrated our son's birthday there and had a great time. The food kept coming the whole time we were there. Loved their appetizer buffet too.
As always, our dining experience at Fogo de Chao was amazing. The manager took great care for a member of our dining party with a food alergy and setup a wonderful birthday cake surprise for our party. We will be back and highly recommend this brazilian dining experience to everyone!
We were in San Diego for the PCBC Show last week. I was recommended Fogo De Chao Brazilian Steakhouse as a great restaurant to visit in the area. We entertained one of our key customers for dinner and we had a great time and a wonderful experience. The food was delicious, the service was great, the ambiance was lively and the drinks were amazing. I would definitely visit again and would highly recommend.
It was the best experience ever.. great food, the staff were fast on bringing well-done meat, which was great. The salad bar was great too. We celebrated my friend's birthday as surprise to her. She loved it and loved their complimentary desert too with one candle. They made her day.
Came here to celebrate my girlfriend's dad's birthday. We were seated promptly close to the feijolada bar as I had requested. we had gone to the Beverly Hills location before but the service here was even better. The food was all delicious and their cuts were cooked to perfection.
I have been here several times , but the last few times the quality and service has been so bad . We literally sat there and waited for meat to come out for over 20 mins . It wasn't until we asked did they walk over with the meat we wanted and it was cold !!!! The place is not cheap and so it's disappointing to spend over 150 dollars and barely get your miners worth . The only service person that was good was the man bringing over the drinks and checking up on us . I had bad service last time and complained , but management at fogo doesn't really care . I decided to go one more time , and I promised myself I would never step into that place again . I can go somewhere else and get more bang for my buck with better service .
We were seated on the back part of the restaurant, we were served 3 different types of meat within our 30 min being seated. I had to ask for service since we've been ignored and the meat servers doesn't get in our area since we're seated too far. We paid full price but never got the full experience.
