We were just two, table was booked well in advance, it was my husband’s birthday. We wanted a nice cozy time, but unfortunately the table we got was next to the entrance, people coming and leaving, cold when the door opens. I wasn’t happy about it, asked for another seating position, but it wasn’t available even without checking. I think when you have a special occasion specified and booked in advance more should be done!!! The food was very nice service other than that as well.

Overall GREAT EXPERIENCE! Attentive and friendly staff! The food at the salad bar was fresh and good variety! My side dishes were brought to the table right before the churrasco experience and replaced when needed it., Our server was very friendly and the gauchos too also attentive and helpful! We had creme brûlée and chocolate cake, they were absolutely amazing! We truly enjoyed our experience! Bathrooms were cleaned and neat, we’ll definitely go back again!

We took 3 hungry 10 year olds for a special birthday dinner. First Brazilian Steakhouse experience for all three and they were in awe of the never-ending meat :) Such a fun night. Our server was wonderful and even tracked down 2nd and 3rd helpings of everyone's favorite meats before all cards were finally flipped to red. They also enjoyed the serve yourself salad bar. Discounted prices for children made it worth our while.

Waitress was stone faced and never came back. Another waitress brought us the check. Asked to see a fish menu since I don't eat meat and never got it so I paid $50 for the salad bar. Waste of money for those not eating meat and absolutely awful service.

I've eaten at a few Brazilian BBQ places before but Fogo De Chao by far was the best. The cuts of meats were certainly above what I've had before as was the seasoning. The servers were very attentive finding the cuts and temperatures of meats that we requested. The offerings from the Market Table were also a step above the standard salad bar with a kale salad and apple salad that stood out for me. Plus the cheesy bread! OMG! There are no words to describe how wonderful that was! Though the food was plentiful I found it easy to keep to my basic meal plan (protein and veg) so most with dietary concerns shouldn't have a problem here (except if you are Vegan - this is NOT the place for you). This was also my boyfriend's first time at Brazilian BBQ and boy did it blow his mind! He's declared he wants to come back for any and all "man occasions".

Food was great, but service was rude. Server literally tried to rush us out of there, handing us dessert menus before anyone was clearly done with their meal.

It ruined an otherwise good meal as the service really put a sour note on a New Years Eve dinner event for our party of 6.

An excellent dining experience with sumptuous meats and a vibrant salad bar. Very good for you paleo and primal types, or people with a big appetite. Nice thing is that you regulate what you want and portion sizes. Waiters with personality bring a variety of beautifully prepared meats to the table and carve to order., Brazilian style - a must if you have yet to try that style, and a place you will return to if you have! Food is plentiful with concessions for kids dining with adults. We have dined as a family and with friends on a number of occasions, and never been disappointed. Highly recommended..

Terrible! Been to many locations and this was the worst by far! A whole different restaurant. Was shocked! It was like eating cold shoe leather. Service was very sub par. Lack of management. Ruined our Christmas dinner and trip to Boston. My wife was sick for two days after. Never again! Stay away

The meat quality is not great and they push the lower quality meats. The overall cost end up higher than the $55 when beverages and desert is included. It is not a great value.

Christmas Eve 2018 visit.
They began bringing the meat while we still had our dirty salad plates in front of us—so they served the meat on our dirty salad plates and our bread plates!!! It took a few rounds before they brought us clean dinner plates (we all piled our dirty salad plates in the middle of the table). We had already been eating for about 10 minutes when a waiter asked if we wanted the side dishes. Really? Why would we not want the side dishes?? I thought this would include the mini popovers. We had to request that they serve us the mini popovers, which were finally brought out more than mid-way through our meal.

The meat was good, but the slices were too thick in my opinion.

One of our guests asked for coffee after all the dishes were cleared, and it took more than 10 minutes—and the guest had to ask again if he could have his coffee.

This location can’t hold a candle to the Houston, Texas location. My family has gone to that location every year on Christmas Eve for probably 10 years. What a huge disappointment this was. Now I know why the place wasn’t crowded. In Houston you can barely walk through the door on Christmas Eve.

Great environment, amazing food! I love how you can request any type of meat that you want and they will go get it for you. Friendly staff, great for special events and groups. Loud environment, would not recommend for young kids. Great drinks! I was upset that I had made a reservation for a birthday and we did not get the birthday song sang to us or a dessert for the special day. That was devastating.. But overall a good experience. Come hungry!

My friend told me that this restaurant was great, so I went here with my girlfriend. It turned out that this restaurant is indeed great! And even more than great. The meat here is fresh and perfectly roasted, and you can choose medium, medium well or other options as you want. As for the salad and marketing bar, although the dishes are not so plenty, they are of good quality. Overall, a wonderful dining experience.

This place was fantastic. I had my birthday here with two of my friends and it was a good suprise of an experience. It seemed a bit high in price but then after you pay and you set ur cards to green the meat never ends. The waitress was very nice and extremely friendly. She made us feel welcome and took my birthday picture! I had garlic steak, bacon streak and prime rib as well as roasted chicken.

A friend recommended this and another Brazilian Steak House in Somerville, recommending it for its ambience. My wife and I felt that the service was very good and speedy, but that the salad bar, food and ambience only about average. Moreover, the drinks were too pricy for the selections available. Finally, we both had an upset stomach, my wife also experiencing stomach pain.

While we would not go as far as discouraging people to try the restaurant, we would not be revisiting again.
