ABSOLUTELY SKIP THIS PLACE... The issue is not cost even though it is over priced for what your actually receiving but the dismal food. The food is tasteless, bland and genuinely unappealing much like their service from the moment you step out of your car. A Tysons TV dinner from a microwave would be considerable step up from this. They might as well add the Burger King value menu so that guests will have a better choice of food. The service was awful (Wasn't sure who my even server was) it could've been the gentlemen that filled our water 3 times prior to even being greeted or the woman named leticia that took our first drink order, lets just say that was the only time we interacted with this one server. It took close to 40 minutes to receive our drink order and we never received our second round of beverages that we order and payed for. We chose this location to celebrate valentines dinner and I will never go back. The experience at Fogo de Chao was a complete waste, loss of a night time and money. The menu and process of the restaurant was never fully explained to my table or the others around us. Then when asked for a check it took another 30 minute wait amongst requesting to speak to a manager I had no type of management to speak to. Then to pay for Valet was a mess lost my keys for over an hour. I will never return to this so called Brazilian steak house.

An upscale Brazilian Rodizio Steak House. High-quality meats with fresh salad and produce bar. Great variety matched with excellent quality. Attentive service in a fun atmosphere. It should definitely be on your list for a terrific restaurant experience.

We sat and wanted to order drinks and catch up. We had a reservation for 6 and they stuck us in a corner next to kitchen. So we were bombarded by meat. It was fresh and hot though! Table should not be for six in that location. Waiter was fine it was the other helper people who rushed us. Like go to salad bar now! Give us a minute please. But they kept at it despite red cards still came over. We went to salad bar and it was ok. The candied bacon is amazing but here it’s tiny bacon pieces. Other locations it’s full pieces.
I’m good to not return to this location. Much more elegant in San Diego and in New Orleans. This location wasn’t as clean and open. Very crowded tables. We spent 1.5 hrs and arrived after and left before other tables because we felt so rushed. Also it’s confusing where to park. They wouldn’t validate our parking so it was $40 in garage so we went into mall to buy something to get validated.

Fogo de Chão is always amazing. The food is delicious with tons of options, even if you don’t want/like meat. But this time the service was incredible. We had our 7 month old baby girl with us for the first time and asked for “any type of meat they could make without any salt”. They brought to our table, exclusively for her: chicken hearts (a Brazilian tradition), picanha and filet mignon. If we hadn’t told them it was enough, they would’ve kept bringing more and more. Oh, and all that while the restaurant was packed. If that isn’t outstanding service, I don’t know what is.

Great place and great food. Obviously, not much options for a vegetarian but salad bar was fine. Hefty price for just salad bar at $39.99. Atmosphere is nice but somewhat loud. Better for group dinners not so much for date night.

Reward Program has took a turn for the worst, ask people to sign up for rewards program but does not want you to eat with other people who sign up for rewards program. Would rather have your whole party not sit together, just so you can use the rewards program they want you to sign up for. Manager would not accommodate. Very frustrating after being a patron for many years.

Loved the Market Table (salad bar). You can easily make a whole meal just from that. Pricing for full experience is far too high for lunch-seems more like a dinner pricing, imo. And they have no child/senior pricing (I asked) which makes it tough at lunch. We went with my 81 y.o. mil and $37.95 is ridiculous for most people, let alone an older person. She only eats a small amount unless it’s salad so doing anything besides MarketTable is a waste. Same goes for children. The chicken was dry, per usual, but the meats were all very tasty.

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".
