The food was so heavily salted that all you could taste was salt. I unable to eat almost everything I tired due to this. We have been several times before but this was the first time the food was that heavily salted. We will not be returning.

There was a very strong odor of mildew when we were there, almost as if there had been water damage/exposure. I asked what had happened and they said they didn’t smell anything. Surprising as the odor almost hit you when you entered as well as a smell of air fresheners by the door. She said she would try to find out but never returned. Would have just appreciated an answer instead of total denial. After all we still ended up eating there. Meat as always is delicious. Some of the salad bar items did not seem as fresh. Visit at least yearly and first time I was disappointed.

It’s a nice place to try once. The manager was really nice. I wouldn’t go again for the following reasons.
The place need room freshener. I felt a weird smell when got into the restaurant.
The person serving the meet did a poor job explaining what kind of meet it was. After sometime we didn’t know what exactly we where eating.
I had been to Texas de Brazil and I was expecting the food to taste similar. the food wasn’t exceptional but definitely not bad,it is good.

This is the third time I've been to this Fogo location. The service this time was atrocious. It took the better part of fifteen minutes to get a drink order placed and delivered. We saw our waiter once during the two hours we were there between initially sitting down and getting the check. Perhaps it was due to how crowded it was. I had to flag down another waiter to get water refills. The meat faucet was also slower than normal, possibly due to how crowded it was. I will probably not be going back.

Right when we walked in the restaurant smelled like a dirty mop. We ordered an appetizer which came at the end of our meal because the waitress never put our order in . Couldn’t even eat it because we were full. The salad /fruit bar had nothing but fruit flys all over it . The meat coming around to our table was chewy and over cooked. First time here and we will probably never come back. Overall experience was disappointing. I expected so much more.

We were told they would bring us water which is all 4 people in our party were drinking. Other drinks came but not water. Didn’t see anyone to ask. My son went to the bar and got 2 waters for his sons. We asked our waitress about that time and she said she would let them know. Finally water came out.
Sides and popovers were slow to come out but they did come
Didn’t see Gauchos as often as we did in the past. But not a problem the waitress made sure we got what we wanted
The restaurant is very loud
You changed your tabouleh recipe. Go back to cracked wheat not quinoa and lemon not lime. Absolutely loved the old tabouleh. Quinoa is not in tabouleh

Overall I still enjoy your restaurant. This experience was a 4 not a 5. Have been there other times when I haven given a 5

This was not our first visit, however, it may have been our last. We took our two young children to dinner with us, but even they were bothered by the noise level. The meat that I received was mostly fat and took me forever to pick through. We waited over 25 minutes for our dessert to arrive, but I will say that without us asking, they took the dessert off of our check because it took so long. They served us our coffee and espresso without cream or sugar. When they finally came back and we we're able to ask for it,our coffee was ice cold. It took them 30 minutes to bring the check from the time we requested it. 15 minutes went by and they never returned with our cards (we paid with gift cards). I finally flagged another server down and inquired. Our server came over and said "you never got your check back?" We replied no and she walked away. She returned in a few minutes and asked if there was enough our on gift card to cover the cost of dinner, which there was. She asked if we had money left over on the cards that we wanted back. At that point, we said whatever is on there, you can have, we just wanted to leave. Our poor kids had fallen asleep on the table while waiting. Very disappointed with this visit.

The food was very delicious. I had to ask my server to repeat that instructions over again because it was so loud in there. I would definitely go back an a less busier day so I could really enjoy the ambiance. Aside from the loud atmosphere and feeling packed into the space, I had a good time. I even got to pick a dessert for my birthday. The flan was great!

We were very disappointed with our dining experience. Fogo de Choa is simply over rated. When we first entered the restaurant, an awful smell permeated the dining area. It smelled like an old mop or sponge that was dirty. It really turned me off and my appetite. My husband and sons had the full experience and reported that the meat was just okay, nothing special. The market table was okay as well, but for the prices we paid, we expected a higher level of food and dining experience. One of the servers carving the meat splashed meat juice on my sons white shirt. Another server bumped into my husband, spilling beer on him. In addition it was very loud, hard to have a conversation. Not a good time... we will not be returning to this restaurant.

I really used to enjoy this restaurant but I don’t think I’ll be returning. The last few times I’ve been there, and again this time, the restaurant had an awful smell. I mentioned on a past visit that the restaurant smelled as if it was cleaned with a dirty, sour cloth and/or mop. It is noticeable immediately upon entry and doesn’t dissipate. The only place that didn’t smell was the restroom! Also, the beef selections were fattier than they have been in the past. $37+ for lunch is way too much especially when you’re holding your breath most of the time.

The Fogo experience is always a good time. Comparing this visit to the last few it seems service and quality have slipped a bit. But we’ll likely go back.

The whole staff works as a great team to bring you a great experience! The salad bar is super amazing, don't be afraid to bring a vegetarian! But the oh so many perfectly cooked meats brought around to your table and sliced as you want it cooked is incredible. Try everything once, then find your favorites! Don't be afraid to say no thanks for the meat you don't want again. They even check to see if there is something particular you want and find it for you. Love!

Our service was especially bad this time. An inattentive waiter, three times we had to ask for our ginger ale and it finally came at the end of the meal. Couldn't get refills on the potatoes, asked 3 different ppl more than once and 3 times we reminded the server that we were celebrating a birthday...he did not come through. Good was good as always

We had a reservation and were not seated until 45 minutes after our reservation time. Nowhere to wait inside without being walked over. Once seated, we stated we had never been and were told nothing besides to visit the “market table”. There were multiple servers that brought drinks, bread, etc. I had a coupon directly from that restaurant’s Facebook page and was given a problem because it stated that there was no code necessary, however they always use codes. Finally was given the coupon amount off. This restaurant is highly overrated, for the price especially.

Service was incredibly slow. Choice of steak has been reduced significantly. Kept trying push lamb and pork instead of steak. This place is no longer a nice place where you would dress up to go. Guests dress like they’re going to the dive bar down the street. I don’t know what caused this location to decline so much but it’s no longer worth going. They also increased valet to $12 and they just left our car running out front with no one around.
