Went during restaurant week. The meat selection is unbeatable. The servers are busy but still trying to be attentive. I like the dessert menu too.

Fogo is always a good bang for your buck, but Restaurant Week is an extra savings. For only $38, they serve you the whole menu of meat (minus a few specialty cuts), plus the salad/cheese bar and hot sides like pao de queijo, plantains, polenta fries, and mashed potatoes. You also get a half serving of dessert! The food is always so tasty and service is always fast. One thing to note is that the “brigadeiro” is actually a chocolate mouse/gelatin cake and not traditional brigadeiro. Slightly disappointing. Overall I had a great time and enjoyed introducing my BF to the magic that is Brazilian steakhouses i.e. unlimited steak, pork, and chicken served table side from a sword.

Everything was amazing about the experience except for the hostess who was extremely unprofessional to my friend about the high chair/child situation. We had mentioned that our reservation changed to add a child and she disregarded the information at the host stand when we told her and proceeded to bring us to the table which 6 chairs were. When we informed her that we needed a high chair she said " for who?" and we stated we had a child with us and she then responded with "oh she's tall enough she'll be fine". My friend at that point told her that she would still like a high chair so the child could be more restricted and not run around while we had dinner and then the hostesses still at this time didn't listen to anything and try to take a chair away in which we had to explain to her again that we needed the 6 chairs but just simply wanted a high chair for the child. Besides the unprofessional hostess, the food was amazing, the service was very good and we enjoyed our time. However, the beginning was a little upsetting because of the hostess.

Even with Reservation there was about a 10min wait, due to it being restaurant week I believe. Servers and management were polite, food came around every couple minutes. The lamb or fillet didn’t come around as often.

Horrible experience. They didn’t care about serving us. They only got our drinks order in the beginning. We had to hunt our server down to order our meal. And waited 1hour and 30 min to then realize they were never going to bring our order. Never came by again to refill our drinks or anything. Will never return and I highly do not recommend this location.

Went during restaurant week which lets you dine from the full menu (with some minor exceptions) for almost half the regular price including dessert, making for a great value. As always the food here is great and the service outstanding. Eat as much as you’d like from the wonderful market table, and receive continuous table-side service of sides and meats. One of my favorite spots in Boston!

Disappointing brunch. All I saw was a omelet station and ready waffles.
Although the meat is Brazilian style, every other selection is not Brazilian. Their cheese rolls are not the Brazilian way either.
Overall, the value is not there.

We have been going to Fogo for years; this was our last meal at this restaurant. The service was awful; we were ignored throughout the entire meal; and, the food was overcooked. I am upset that we had such a bad experience because we always look forward to eating here. No one even mentioned that this was our anniversary...

Took 20 minutes to be seated. Food was great- wish that we knew all the options that were coming- some we got twice and some new ones turned up just as we were feeling full but those were some of our favorites, just wish we had had more room for them. Servers were very attentive with sides and clean plates.

I had higher expectation coming from previous visits to this restaurant. The food was downgraded (not a lot of options as before) and the meat tasted like rubber. The service was extremely bad as far as the people who I interacted with. Gentlemen who worked there were nice. Will I come back? No way!!

We've been to Fogo de Chao many times but this location seems to be a bit skimpy with their meats. There were several times when we sat around waiting and waiting and waiting for someone to bring out some meats. The restaurant was not that busy and they had plenty of servers but did not want to accommodate customers. Not sure what happened but we had to ask for them to bring out some meats for everyone. What a pity!!!! Poor management?

On Wednesday February 19th, 2020, we had a magnificent and extraordinary dining experience and 60th Birthday Celebration for our friend Matt at the Fogo De Chao-Boston-MA restaurant.

When I arrived at the restaurant, I was greeted by our hostess Jessica, who addressed me by my full name. I was so impressed by her warm welcome and hospitality which made me feel like she knew me and that I was family.

Jessica presented our group with the best table in the restaurant complete with a breathtaking and gorgeous view of downtown Boston!

Jessica and her team of servers worked diligently throughout the evening and provided us with outstanding customer service along with a meal that was excellent, delicious, and grilled to perfection!

To top it off, Jessica surprised us with a creative, wonderful, and yummy cake and ice cream dessert for Matt’s Birthday!

We were treated like royalty and would like to send our sincerest thank you to Jessica and her team for going all out to make our time and stay at the Fogo De Chao-Boston-MA restaurant enjoyable, memorable, and special!

Food is always great but the service is lacking. We got inundated with meat options when we first sat but when we decided to take a break, it stopped coming. We waited a while and even asked but still did not get any grill service after that. We were also supposed to get valentines coupons for each couple (we were 3 couples) but did not get any. They will apparently mail them to us, which resulted from me calling the restaurant and explaining the situation. We also had some deals emailed to us that we tried to ask about when paying and were rudely told that we should have asked before sitting down, which we did not know and even so did not need to be scolded for just because we asked. Overall, bad service, very busy, great food though.

Great service and unreal story. Five $20 bills dropped out of my pocket during dinner. I didn’t realize I had lost the money until after we left the restaurant. I called about 20 minutes after we left to ask if anyone had turned in money. Unfortunately nobody had. About 30 minutes later my phone rang and they told me the money was found by a restaurant employee.

So many great people in this world.

Great end to a great night.
