We’ve been waiting to go back here since covid started last year. They taking all precautions to keep their customers safe. They have disposable gloves and hand sanitizer sitting at the entrance of the salad bar. Food was great and service is top notch. Come hungry because their steak is delicious.

Service was A1, very attentive. Meats were ok. I eat medium well and my wife eats well done. When we asked for well done, they wouldn’t show back up. (Server kind of fixed it when we addressed it). We also had the shrimp margarita. The shrimps came in 6 pcs, we had four and continued to finish the last 2... it was absolutely disgusting, they were so soft and mushy, we had to spit them out after a bite. Pineapple mint lemonade was delicious. Creme brûlée and molten lava cake was soooo good. I’ve enjoyed fogo more the last time I’ve been here.

The service and hospitality did not meet our expectations, especially since previous visits to Fogo were great. It was my birthday too, so a bit disappointed by the lack of hospitality and manners of the staff.

The experience was not desirable to say the least . We were seated in the corner away from the active servers , we were only served if the server made his way to the “birthday party” that was next to us. Speaking of which also added to the unpleasant experience, the “party” was extremely loud , while interrupting our experience by taking pictures and speaking at high tones abruptly. Now to the food experience , for some reason the cuts of meat that I asked for during the “full experience “ I asked for medium well or medium and it ALL came out to be “done” no juices from the cut of meat or the cut that I asked for . I truly don’t like to leave reviews like this but this experience was underwhelming for the prices that were paid for a “experience”.

This place is great. I love their covid19 safety precautions in place at the buffet. We were celebrating our 10 year anniversary and ordered the creme brulee to share and they gave it complimentary. That was freakin awesome. The food is always excellent here. This is not a romantic spot, way too much noise for that. But it's still an excellent spot to eat.

So the salad bar was great but I came for the Churrasco experience and only got to try 3 different meats. It was as if they forgot we were sitting in the corner. Other than that, the drink service and everything else was great...but I can’t say I got my money’s worth for the food. Such a shame...

You should've been able to try all of the cuts that come with that experience, so we're troubled to hear otherwise. We hope you visit us again, as we are sure to exceed your expectations.

Over all everything was good. There was a crowd of people hanging out in the front and we walked passed the place and doubled back, the people standing in the front did not initially move when we were trying to get in.

I have been here previously but since they have reopened since the covid shutdown the experience feels a but rushed. You are not given a card or any sort of device to show you are ready for the gauchos to serve you. We barely get to sit down with our items from the salad bar before they are coming around with the various meets. The food quality is always good. However I did not think the filet mignon was very tender this time around, other than that we enjoyed our meal. I just did not feel as a whole it was a very relaxing experience.

We did the Fogo buffet and they kept bringing different kinds of meat to our table. We got a good variety but they did have more chicken and pork come around compared to beef or lamb. There wasn't a whole lot of spices or seasoning, so I guess your supposed to add it yourself. The buffet did have a lot of mild or spicy peppers.

The service here is consistently excellent. We’re a visually impaired couple and they’ve always been very helpful if we needed a hand with the salad bar

The salad items are yummy, especially palm hearts and artichokes, salami, feijoada, bacon and cheeses, and we really enjoyed the caprinha cocktails. There’s a wide variety of steak options that are all good, but regrettably they no longer carry the Brazilian sausage at this location on
