Consistently the best tasting food anywhere. This is hands down my favorite place to dine. The service is by far the best. Working as a team to meet the needs of your guest is far and away the best concept in dining customer service.

I loved everything about the place. The Food was very good and I was very please with the service.
It is definitely not a date place if you are trying to get to know each other as you will probably be screaming since it is very loud in this location but that's okay. At least kids are welcomed.
The side or salad bar was very clean and everything I tasted was excellent.
You get so much food that I don't care if you don't eat for a week you will fill up fast.
The price was a little bit high but you know that going in so if that is an issue go for the more regular experience at a cheaper off brand version if you dare!!

Would be more romantic if we could sit together instead of across from each other. The seating is too close to the other people. Price too high...we went there thinking it was $31.00 each instead of $50.00 (pricey). Food was good.

We were seated promptly at our reservation time. As always, the staff was very attentive. There was always someone checking in on us making sure everything was going well, the food was to our liking and that we were getting to try the cuts of meat that we wanted, which I really appreciated. Everything tasted delicious. The cuts are prime choice. It's about the 5th time we've been and we are never disappointed. Oh, and the market table alone is enough to leave you satisfied, and pairs perfectly with the meat and poultry.

Nice steakhouse however this comes at a price. It's a shame the choice meats seems rarely served. They do accommodate your requests and would recommend that if your looking for value, eat a small salad, stay away from bread and other teasers in front of you and request the fillet and ribeye cuts. Overall, we had a nice evening. Also recommend making a reservation.

We had a great birthday dinner! The staff was very friendly and attentive. The service was probably one of the best experiences I've had a restuarant in a long time. They knew it was my husbands birthday and offered a complimentary dessert, when we told them we were too full they came out with a plate of whipped cream and strawberries that read 'Happy Birthday' and a cheesecake to take home.

Superb service, great food and friendly staff. Will definitely go back. Everything is fresh and tasty, great meat and side selection. The restaurant is very clean. The food keeps on coming, we did not have to wait or ask for anything.

This was my boyfriend's first experience at a Brazilian steakhouse, and he was not disappointed. We dined with friends, another couple. We both loved the variety of steak selections offered as well as the wonderful salad bar. I absolutely loved the chicken salad. Although my female friend does not eat much meat, she said she was really full due to the salad bar options. I knocked off a point for service because we asked for more cheese bread, and it never came. Also, the meat is serve so quickly that it's hard to really appreciate what you're being offered. I felt a little rushed in having to decide if I wanted that cut of meat or not. Nonetheless, for at about $50 per person, I feel this was money well spent and we look forward to coming back.

If you are BIG on meat this is the place to be. The Meat selection 's where hot, plentiful, and we'll seasoned. The service was top notch. It was kind of noisy, and busy. I would say not the place for a romantic dinner, but a big appetite would be right at home ;)

Great food but they don't tell you the prices or give you a menu so you have no idea how much the food is until you get the bill. If you look at their website they have different price points for different dining experiences. Once you get there they don't give you a choice. I would have liked to pick a lower priced meal but they didn't give me the option.

This place is amazing. Don't over indulge at the salad bar, as you will want to save plenty of room for all the meats that will present themselves! Servers appear with filet, sirloin, bacon wrapped chicken, more chicken, sausages, lamb chops, and leg of lamb! I'm sure I missed something.

Another great dining experience. The meat treats come fast and furious. Everyone's favorites are different which is one reason F d C is good. As much as you want of whatever you like. My favorites are the pork sausage, beef ribs, and lamb. If you haven't seen the one you want lately just ask and it will be on its way. Started the evening in the bar, where a friendly and helpful Oscar kept us 'liquefied'. Manager always stops by to see if everything is going well. Some servers seemed to recognize us, hope for good reasons. Also, like those little biscuits. The salad bar fixings are fresh and nice variety. The spicy bacon is delicious, but caution it is spicy.

Amazing food..the best flank steak..my husband and I love this place. Service is simply amazing. We have eaten here many times mothers day, fathers day, anniversary, bdays, etc we have had our baby and kids with us and we have eaten here just as a couple and never had any issues with service, food or anything else.

Simply delicious. Service is prompt and invisible at the same time. All the meats were fantastic and the Beef Ribs were out of this world! Hidden menu item Hard that has a cruchy edged with a buttery fall apart meat. Order it right when you sit down as it takes 20 minutes.
Love this place!

Celebrating my daughters birthday arrived early to enjoy a drink before dinner. Stood at the bar for 10 minutes and no one acknowledged us...one bartender waiting on four men at the bar (they were the only other patrons in the bar) and the other filling glasses with fruit and herbs ignored us, we were never greeted. Happy hour drinks at the bar were $7. Got called to our table before anyone waited on us. Ordered our drinks at the table, they were $14 in the dining room, explained that we waited and no one acknowledged us in the bar, would they honor the happy hour price, they said no. The market table was not what I expected, thought there would be more traditional Brazilian salads, but was Americanized with Caesar salad, fruits, cheese and toss salad makings. We did like the black rice mango salad, that was unique. Meats were delicious and plentiful. My daughter did get a complimentary dessert with a candle for her birthday. Dining room staff was helpful and attentive, an overall ok experience, but not what I expected from the other reviews and the price point.

This place might be a little pricey but it was well worth it. I ate until my stomach couldn't take no more and then some but not because it is an all you can eat restaurant but because this place had the best food that I have ever tasted. All of the meat was juicy and cooked exactly how you liked it. The margaritas were so good. I loved the mango margarita especially. I would recommend this place to everyone that I know for any special occasion.

This was our second experience dining at Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse. The first was with a huge party exceeding 20 family and friends last December. The second was very recently with three family members. Both experiences were equally extraordinary with regard to quality of the meal, service and ambiance. We highly recommend this restaurant!

It was my husband's 50th birthday and we wanted a quiet nice place to go eat that was romantic. This restaurant meet all of our needs and some! The staff was very attentive and the food was excellent. They even gave him a LARGE piece of cheesecake for his birthday! We will for sure be returning again!

The food was really good. My girlfriend and I are not the biggest meat eaters so we can not comment on that, but the vegetables and everything else was really good. We got the Marketplace option and that left us plenty filled up, so don't think that just because you will not be eating meat, that this restaurant is not worth your time and money.

Fogo is well-known for its services and food. I think Fogo San Diego have excellent services, but the food quality is not as good as the one i tried in Houston. The selection is good, but it takes a while to serve to us. desert for our birthday friend is taking even longer. I will recommend this restaurant but i will tell them serving might take a while.
