And having the variety to sample from is really a great experience. The market table of course has a great variety of side options and the zucchini and eggplant were delicious. This time, the service was not quite up to scratch and drinks and special requests did take a considerable amount of time. It was also very busy and relaxed as opposed to the usual dinner crowd.

I was very surprised because all the meats missing the taste of flavor and it was very dry. Normally with my past experiences in different places, the meat has a really good flavor and it’s very juicy. The other thing that very surprised me is that they were not bringing all types of meats but they would if you request specifically. If you going to come for the first time to Brazilian bbq, you could miss lots of things since you won’t be familiar with the Brazilian BBQ. Employees were trying their best but there was Chaos in the environment. Too many tables for that space.

Great food, great service, very pleasant, enjoyable staff all around. Surprised how quickly we were served as it was the busiest nights I have ever seen for the restaurant. Yes you come here for the main courses,BUT the salad bar is just as fantastic. Noise level was loud, but hey it was graduation night and everyone was having fun…it actually added to the ambiance.

It is loud, chaotic but fun and energetic. The food is tasty and definitely worth a go. It wont be a regular go-to spot for me but I am glad we went and we all enjoyed the experience!

We had Adrian as our server and he was super friendly and made our graduation dinner even more memorable and fun. The food was fast (could be because we were close to the kitchen), we had an issue with the sea bass being too salty so we sent it back but it was no big deal. The drinks are great (get the Brazilian cocktail) and dessert was amazing (def the creme brulee and flan and tres leches) Seating is a little tight. We were 6 on each side and to get out of your seat is hard because the chairs all touch each other making it difficult to get in and out to the buffet. The room between between each other is fine. Its just cause the seat itself lines up with each other.

When we arrived at 4:05pm 10 minutes before our actual reservation, we still ended up waiting for an hour. I don’t know what way of scheduling they do but it is not organized at all. It felt as if I didn’t stand near the hostess desk we were not going to get called. We ordered a seafood tower, which I thought would look like what was shown on the website. It was a special event. And for $106 dollars my expectations were not what I thought it would be. The lobster on the top tier was great. Nice claws and Tails and on the lower tier were muscles and ONE cluster of snow crabs. I just want to reiterate that this tower is over $100! Not only there was just one but it was the smallest one I have ever seen! For the amount of money that I spent, the food should have been full to the brim. Our sever was great, the meats and sides were good aswell. The pineapple lemonade was delicious.

Had to request meat service to be serviced. The second asking for service, my order salmon still had not arrived after 30mins. After 1hr of still waiting for my order I had to call the manager whom was VERY RUDE in his response to my complaint!

The mashed potatoes were runny and tasted straight out of a box. They stayed lukewarm for about 2 minutes and then turned super cold. The meats tasted like they were all boiled in the same pot and were flavorless. The staff was great after we had to tell them that we had been sitting there for 10 or so minutes before anyone visited our table with a meat selection. I was very disappointed and somewhat embarrassed. I had hyped up this visit to my parents prior to our time there and they were really excited. They tried to be nice but I could tell they were unsatisfied. It was definitely not worth the $70/person that they charged.

There were no menus at all to order items like omelettes and waffles from and I’m pretty sure the website said they had crepes, but then when we got there they did not have them. The first server who helped us didn’t even know what the story was with the brunch and had to grab someone else. We also had to wait almost 25 minutes for a table, despite having had a reservation. I realize it said that may happen when we made the reservation, but I guess I still don’t understand the point of taking reservations then...?

Our only other Fogo experience is New Orleans where the tables are at least a bit further apart so you’re not constantly getting hit by other diners + the # of diners is lower, which makes it a bit quieter. (The gauchos were excellent at navigating the tables.) Overall, between the closeness of the tables & the noise level was a bit overwhelming but will try other locations in the future.

We were very well accommodated and I didn’t feel any less attended to than the times I’ve come with a much smaller group. Our waiter was excellent, I regret that I don’t remember his name but I appreciate his service and attentiveness. Our group had various different requests (meat temp, pork/no pork, lamb only, etc.) and everyone was able to enjoy themselves with a reasonable wait time considering the size of the table. My daughter greatly enjoyed her birthday brunch and we will be back soon!
