    Great food! Service was awesome! Did wait an extra 20 minutes past reservation time for my table for one….but they put me at an even better spot. I might just be a little too small town but I really had hoped for some crackers with my oysters but they did not have any….still really good without, just gotta get past the texture.

    Our server McKenna was outstanding and made some recommendations we thoroughly enjoyed. The Amalfi G m T was s perfect balance is quality gin and specialty tonic. The charred octopus was delicious as was the rest of our meal including the striped bass and the rigatoni Nonna. Lavo never disappoints. Great way to start OSS the new year

    Going to lunch at Fogo de Chao has been a New Years Day tradition for about 10 years now. The Staff is always friendly. They ensure you get the cuts of meat that you like the best. The salad bar alone could be your meal. It has incredible choices and variety. The meat is absolutely the star of the experience. There’s everything you could want, numerous cuts of beef, sausage, ribs, lamb, it is all delicious.
