An awesome experience one more time. This place is a favorite to us! But aside of the great food I want to point out at the outstanding attention of the staff... always friendly, always on time! Special mention to Jonathan, he does an amazing job 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

We are definitely coming back! The buffet appetizers/salad bar were delicious. But of course the best part was the meat. The waiters were very attentive and made sure we had clean dishes, ample wine, and anything else we needed. They even decorated our plate for my boyfriend's birthday. Thanks for a great night!

We made reservations for 7 with a high chair and booster seat. We were celebrating my oldest daughter 21st birthday. They had us seated and as requested right on time. Server was right with us to explain how things worked and offer drinks etc. First round of food was great and the guys with skewers came around very frequently. Unfortunately, after about 15 minutes the skewer guys kept going past us and eventually they stopped coming by despite the fact three of us had green coasters showing. The server did bring a complimentary cake with icecream to the table and told her Happy Birthday, that was nice. Overall good experience, could have been great if they kept bringing the meat. For $60 a person, the meat should never stop.

My bf and I came here for Thanksgiving. All staff was gracious, efficient, and helpful. The meals were, as always, outstanding. Everything, from the strawberry-hibiscus caiphairinha to the key lime pie, was absolutely on-point. Thank you for helping us embrace a new tradition!

It was loud and busy. The whole “experience” was an hour and the bill was $106.00 per person. Felt rushed and spent way too much money for the amount of time and food. The market table had great choices, but everything is served cold. The meats were tasty, especially the lamb. The dessert was very good (cost extra) and the drinks came during the meal after several reminders. At $16 each, I expected more to the drink. Outside of the drinks (which came from the bar), the wait staff was outstanding. Tried it, don’t think I’d go back. We had a party of 8, half enjoyed it the other half felt as I did. Basically, really not worth the money, especially in the city.

The food was good but the service was bad. The hostesses were extremely rude and we weren’t sat until almost 30 minutes past our reservation time. Our waitress had our dishes removed before even asking if we were finished and essentially they were trying to push us out the door because they just wanted the table. For the price it costs to eat there, the whole experience was very disappointing to our group.

My husband and I came here on Veterans Day!
The food was absolutely delicious and the service was on point. I really wish I came with a bigger appetite!
They also honor a super great discount for Veterans and even for up to 3 guests.
I wish I could give it more stars and other restaurants should really follow this lead! So appreciated and will definitely go back soon!!!!

Great selection of meats. While the salad bar is amazing, don't get sucked into a big plate. Save the room for more slices of meat!

I asked my the server for a napkin for my gum. He stated that he had to go to the bar to get it as if it was going to be a struggle., but I was the only person in the back dining area at the time. Fifteen min later, I saw a second server and asked, and she brought them quickly. Because I didn’t want to put my gum on a plate, I just sat there most of the time, not enjoying my food, but waiting on a napkin.

The main server was not focused and was frequently sidetracked from the service by trying to up-sell special offerings (Wagyu steak, large format wine, aged whiskeys). It was clear that his main focus was the bottom line of the check and not providing the best service possible. The only saving grace was the impeccable food and wine that Fogo is known for. Great spot, needs better servers.

Have dined here before, and it is always very good. The salad bar is amazing-very fresh, great variety. The wait staff put in a lot of effort bringing a candle for the birthday we were celebrating-and that was special. The staff was pleasant and friendly, but service also seemed rushed and a bit disorganized at times. It seemed they were not communicating with each other about our table. Our table was seated right next to the employee cash register and glass station-which was noisy and it meant servers were over there our whole meal. Just a few minor issues-nothing serious, and we will definitely go back.

Was not impressed with the Boston location. The chicken was overcooked and dry while the “caramelized” bananas were barely cooked. They were firm and barely sweet, had the texture of plantains. Also was charged $3.75 for a tiny bottle of coke which the servers kept trying to pour into a glass with iced despite me saying I did not want ice. Eventually they took away the glass of ice....with 1/2 my coke they already poured in it. So I paid $3.75 for about 4 sips that were left in the bottle.

Good quality meats and selection of salads etc.
Having been several times to the San Diego Fogo de Chao, I was expecting to see more of the seafood selection that was amazing in San Diego - so that was a little disappointing in the Boston restaurant. Also service was not as friendly as San Diego (hence 4 star, with San Diego being 5 star).

They have changed the lunchtime menu system, you now get their wonderful buffet and a choice of one meant. It is excellent value and their cold buffet has everything that I like. Smoked salmon, ham,etc.

Our waitress was wonderful but the hosts were absolutely horrible and rude which is upsetting because we do tend to go here a lot and the table are so crammed together and only say some meats come to the table once

Poor reception area. Bartenders need to smile more. They looked angry.
I ordered a beer while i was waiting for my table and never got it.
I also understand they were very busy making cocktails for the servers.

The restaurant design is one of the beautiful among The Fogo’s restaurants in other location that I have been. The service was spectacular and we have been checked numerous times to see that we have everything and we were offered to replace the plates and get fresh new one instead to enjoy the various meets and salads that we took from the salad bar. It is a good culinary experience with many options

Llevo muchos años de ir a Fogo de Chao. Esta ultima vez fue muy decepcionante. El servicio muy malo, tardaron mucho en traer el vino. La Picaña que supuestamente es la especialidad solo nos la ofrecieron dos veces. Le pedimos Picaña al mesero y nos mando una Picaña que eran las sobras toda quemada con un sabor feo. Depspues pedi mas banano, le dije al mesero dos veces y nunca me lo mandaron. Esto deja mucho que desear de este restaurante. Especialmente por que antes era muy bueno y la calidad de la carne era mucho mejor. Es un restaurante caro y uno como consumidor espera por lo menos mejor servicio y mejor calidad de carne.

Great place to eat,food is A+ but a little to salty on some meats,salad bar is top notch and I love the bacon. The price is definitely higher then most,but they send out a lot of discounts through email. It would of been a 5 all the way around but I feel like they slam you with food then you never see the waiters again. I'm usually there with atleast 4 or 5 people, so I would love to enjoy all the meat they bring while I enjoy the people I'm with. Instead it's almost like a meat eating marathon no time to chat....lol And if you don't pile up the meat on your plate then you'll never see it again. I understand that its busy on the weekends but you have to also worry about people enjoying themselves not just taking the money and NEXT!!!

I'd advise not to go to this place within an hour before closing. If you're going to spend all this money for sub par service and a sub par meal just because the employees are ready to go home and ready to get you out as soon as possible, then don't give customers the option to make a reservation so close to closing. It's unfair to customer experience. Most of my meat was medium well and under because there was no "well done" meats prepared. I felt that we didn't get our moneys worth when it came to the meat selections and felt like we just got whatever was left. It was the worst experience that we've had by far and I'm chalking it up to it being a late evening.
