We love Fogo! A large organization had booked the back area, so we sat in a different room than we usually do. There was a large party next to us, so our server was more focused on them, but the great part about Fogo is every person who works there is attentive to your needs. You can ask anyone to help, and they are so nice! The manager, Ana, is fabulous! The food was delicious - the filet was absolutely amazing! We always have a great experience at Fogo.

It was my first time. I came with my family for a birthday. As we were seated I went to use the restroom. 1 stall was out of order, another did not lock and was dirty. When I returned to the table the server had come already. I was never introduced to the restaurant and how it worked. My menu was taken from my hand as I was first looking at it. We spent $350 for 4 people. We were seated in an extremely busy corner with patrons coming and going on their cell phones. I did not enjoy it at all.

The meal was great. Wished the filet server came around more as that was the best piece of meat. Loved the plantains and asked for more plantains without polenta was told yes but they never came. Was surprised and disappointed they didn’t have grilled pineapple for dessert.

We love Fogo, but this time we were not happy at all. During the whole time at the restaurant, only 4 kinds of meat came and it took forever between the meats. We filled ourselves with the food from the buffet. Quantity and quality have changed. Very disappointed!

This is a wild place! The sheer quantity of food is overwhelming--so come here HUNGRY! The meat comes fast a the options to turn over the round disc to rest for a bit is super fun. We had a great great time here and I would definitely recommend it. Just isn't a place I'd come here very often as it is too much food and too much meat for my taste. Perhaps on a fish night (?)

The food was delicious and hot. We enjoyed the gents coming through with the different meats- made the experience memorable and the different meats were cooked perfectly. Service was awful from the start. Had no idea who the server was- he or she never made it clear, didn’t introduce themselves and never checked on the meal. Not once. Nor did a manager for that matter- in fact there seemed to be no manager presence in the room. It made service look chaotic and rushed. I left a small tip on a large check because in this industry of which I am a part, good service reaps good tip. I’d come back for the food but might think twice because the service is really really lacking.

The environment is good. They even made a dessert for our anniversary, which did not taste good. I didn't like the food there, too much steak, lamb, chicken legs and so on. Btu the salad tasted good.

It was my birthday dinner and I was just unsatisfied with the lack of side options but the parm pork , the chicken and steak wrapped in bacon was better without the bacon tbh , the lamb and the pepper beef i think it was , was yummy. The drinks were perfect as well as the service. However, I most likely won’t be back and that’s okay but thank you for such phenomenal service from jessica and lisa!

They came out like initially with the food then we never saw them again -we had to ask the servers to send the people back with the steak and it took 15- 20 minutes. A 3rd time we had to requested them to come back which took another 15 minutes, just awful. Once we got coffee and dessert left at the table they dropped the check off at the same time and never asked if We would like another refill of coffee. It was all about how quick they could get us out of there and turn the table over. From the time we sat down till the time we walked out the door we were in and out of there in an hour and 15 minutes.

I am quite disappointed at the service level provided by Fogo de Chao this time. I came here two years ago during the same Restaurant Week, their service level was phenomenal, therefore I came back again this year. However, the server did not give us any greetings and even though my friend told him it was his first visit, no help was offered. We were sitting there for 10 minutes until another server stopped by to ask us if we needed anything. Restaurant Week should be a good platform for restaurants to show their best to the public, not to discount their services provided.

Went during dine out boston and it definitely worth it! Usually it is 56 dollars per person with full menu choice. Dine out boston menu is limited but trust me, it was enough, especially for a 5 foot 2 girl like me. The server kept coming and serving meat with many different choices of cut, and the buffet table was wonderful with various veggies, cheese, and fruits. I had my cactus fruit (dont know the exact name) for the first time. It was fun. But speaking of the taste of the meat. To be honest, I can’t remember. The server served the food nonstop and I was busy cutting the meat and putting the meat into my mouth non stop. But i was sooooo full at the end. No wonder! Cuz i didnt have time kept my mouth shut!
The dessert was okay quality. Traditional American dessert.
But our waitress forgot to bring one of my friends’s dessert. We asked twice then she brought over. And she even gave us a wrong check. Thank my friend who checked the bill.
Overall, it was a nice experience. The price (for dine out boston) was acceptable, and the food was nice (in terms of quality and choices)

I keep returning because the food, service, and ambiance are so outstanding. From the prompt seating to the almost immediate service to take our drinks order, to the clear explanation of the Dine-Out Boston menu, we had constant but non-intrusive attention.
The salad bar (Market Table) has to be seen and sampled to be believed. Prosciutto, smoked salmon, salami's, cheeses, asparagus, palmitos (hearts of palm), artichokes, plus a wide assortment of vegetables and fruit.
The Fraldinha (Flank Steak) was exquisite - tender and medium rare as requested. The Picanha and Alcatra (top sirloin cuts) were also delicious, tender and juicy.
I cannot fail to mention the scrumptious cheese bread - warm, light and cheesy.
I have been recommending Fogo to my friends and family for more than 15 years

Fogo de Chao is a casual all you can eat Brazilian Steakhouse. I went there for dinner on a Sunday and it was quite busy. The meat was not bad but it wasn't 'wow' either. If you really want to see what all you can eat steakhouse looks like I recommend Fogo de Chao for a casual lunch instead.

Never disappoints. Service is as good as anywhere. Take a sip of water, and it’s immediately refilled. Meats come out more than often enough. Food always good. The beef was very good, not great, as it’s been in the past. All of the chickens were outstanding. Fogo de Chao is always a great spot to spend a nice meal, with good food.
