Outstanding as always. Our server Rodrigo took the experience to the next level. His attention to every detail and his sharing of Brazilian life and culture make him an asset to this restaurant. I cannot praise how much he went out of his way to ensure excellent service and made my sons birthday lunch a memorable one. Keep it up!

Service was very good. Attentive, gracious and helpful. Clientele is falling. Too many people walking in and behaving/dressing like its the Golden Corral. If this keeps up, you are sure to see this place fall to the likes of Olive Garden in Times Square. Shame.

My wife and I wanted to take her brother, who had just flown in from Germany, to a special place since she had not seen him for a while. Fogo de Chao was the perfect choice. We were concerned about COVID 19 but immediately were put at ease by John at the reception desk as he guided us through all the proper protocols that were put in place! In addition, this large airy restaurant was very spacious with tables NOT packed together and placed comfortably apart. They also offered outdoor dining on their patio facing the MoMA museum. Ricardo Oliveira, the GM, was everywhere, from greeting us outside at the front door to “working the room”, paying attention to every detail and making sure we, as well as every table, were having a wonderful dining experience. He was politely engaging accompanied by a touch of Brazilian flare. The meal was exquisite with a mix of Brazilian dishes and a variety of fine quality meats (comparable to any upscale New York Steakhouse). We especially enjoyed the Wagyu beef nicely served on a heated block of rock salt and cooked to perfection while allowing us to further cook each individual carved slice to our liking. The “Tres Leches” dessert was suggested by our attentive waitress and became my favorite. Ricardo and Fogo de Chao turned our apprehension of the evening out into a magical dining experience!! I will definitely be back!

One of the best dinning experience New York has to offer today. I went her yesterday to celebrate my anniversary the wait staff was above and beyond one of the mangers I believe her name was Anna I would literally come back just for her she was amazing she was so sweet and accommodating. Over all if I could rate this place a even higher score I would I don’t know how much these guys get paid but what ever it is needs to be tripled because everyone was amazing

For the most part, my experience was great. Our waiter, Stephanie, was awesome! She was answered all of our questions and was super attentive. The only downside was that it took a significant amount of time for my food to come out. I ordered the lobster and shrimp appetizer. Besides that, everything else was really good.

Crowded and not safe during COVID. Way too many tables close to one another- NOT even close to 6ft apart. Restaurant is not following NYC COVID dining guidelines. They are not capping tables or amount of guests especially on weekend nights.

Jay, we are concerned to hear this, as our team should always be practicing social distancing during these times. Your health and safety mean the world to us, and we hope to prove this to you on another visit.

Service and food is top notch. Ricardo and the team is amazing. Crystal the server makes the best Caipirinhas. Truly the best caip I ever had. Meat serves and salad options was great. The attention to deal during Covid Era was amazing. Made us feel very safe with the procedure they have in place. If you are looking for a great experience I highly recommend Fogo Mid Town NYC.

Not quite what we expected. It was advertised that we would be getting an unlimited experience. That didn’t happen. After each person makes their 2 or 3 passes you need to request with your waiter for them to come back. It’s only about 30 to 45 min of their endless meat experience

Food was delicious, meats are amazing. Drinks were really good and the service on point. The only reason I’m giving this restaurant four stars is because they are not socially distancing the tables properly. We were a small group by the time we got there there wasn’t much people by the time we left it was super crowded and all the tables were extremely close and everyone was on top of each other that made it very uncomfortable.

Everything tasted amazing the only downfall of our experience was we were sat at the table by the door which was pretty cold, our sides and food were cold before we finished our anti pasta. Thankfully mid meal they changed our seats. Other than that was worth the trip to NY.

We're sorry for seating you so close to the door initially, as we never want a guest's meal to grow cold. Thank you for allowing us the chance to address this while you were in, and we hope to earn your 5-stars next time.
