My only problem was that fogo's business was too good, there were so many people that it was often hard to get meat because it was often gone by the time they got to our table. We had to ask specifically for cuts since it took so long to get anything.

It was the first time for most of our table and we enjoyed our meal very much. The waiters kept offering the meats to two people at our table who did not order the full experience, so it became a bit of a chore each time having to tell them no thank you, despite not having a red/green coaster in front of them. But other than that, our experience was great.

Too expensive for what it is! They mostly serve beef! Used to be way better and diversified meat!

Service was okay, but left something to be desired. It was hard to find and flag down servers.

In terms of ambience, the Fogo in New York was far better. The Boston location felt like an Olive Garden. Children were running around everywhere and touching items on the salad bar.

The meat was okay but the cuts were inconsistent in terms of doneness.

Overall, the experience was not worth the value.

Ho mangiato tantissimo concentratevi sulla carne e non mangiate quasi niente al buffet. Così assaggiate tutti i tipi di carne alcuni pezzi sono particolari. I contorni li portano al tavolo quindi lasciate stare il buffet

The market table (salad bar) is amazing and the meats are all delicious. Service is fantastic. Awesome place to celebrate a special occasion, but it's great anytime. I started going to Fogo with a friend who was gluten sensitive and she was wowed by all the gluten free items they offered. Since then, I'm a regular. I love to eat at Fogo!

I was a little wary because of the price (I don't usually spend a lot of money at nice restaurants!), but we went with the Full Churrasco Experience for $57.95 and let me say... it was MORE than worth it! The Feijoada Bar and Market Table alone were great, but the cuts of meat brought by the servers were delicious. The amount of delicious food that we ate was worth probably triple the price. It still isn't in my budget to make this a regular restaurant, but it'll be my new go-to for a nice meal!

Absolutely awful. We had to flag down someone after about 20 minutes to order cocktails. 30 minutes later cocktails finally arrived. Waited another 25 minutes and still no food despite asking no less than 4 servers to have the meat servers come to our table. We finally left to heat up leftovers at home. Worst restaurant experience ever. Will never go back! Ruined my husband’s birthday!

If there is a discount going on, please let the server / host know before you start dining. Otherwise the discount is invalid if you mention it after dining. They do this because the discount does not include premium cuts of meat. We wish we had known this prior to dining, but unfortunately the advertisements we saw did not include this vital piece of information.

Service: A span of 20 minutes would go by without a server to come offer us more cuts of meat. We also were unable to get seated unless we had the majority of the party present. We had 4 out of 7 people present initially, so I’m not sure why they still were unable to seat us.

A very interesting & worthwhile dining experience! Best of its' type around. Not a great value for money -- though food is delicious and very well-prepared. Suggest that staff could provide a lot of value to the overall experience through much more energetic & theatrical service.

Service at Fogo is always amazing attentive, food quality exceptional and festively served and always very tasty, the choices are seemingly endless and satisfying. Wine & drinks that we had were all on the mark and a good value. We've found that being seated by 6 PM helped a lot since once it gets into peak dinner time the noise gets high and conversations for a group can be a challenge. Would of course use any excuse to go to Fogo.

After looking at our options, we opted to eat at 2pm on Sunday for "dinner" to take advantage of the restaurant month offer and not be too stuffed to sleep at night. Unfortunately, we may have been at one of the last tables to be seated for the section we were in. Meats did not make many rounds and there were instances where we were waiting for them to come around. Not that we needed to be checked on frequently, but our waitress never came around to see how we were doing and we had to get her attention to order a soda and ask for the check. Maybe we just came at an odd time, but maybe it's because we were getting the cheaper offer.

We love Fogo de Chao generally, but the Boston experience was very much below expectations. The service was quite bad and the quality of the food below Fogo’s standard.
We have been as a family many many times in Baltimore, Washington DC, Miami and Las Vegas and always loved it.
The Boston location needs improvements.

We knew about the restaurant as we ate at the D.C. site. It was everything we expected. Lots of meat that was delicious and well prepared.
The service is great as they work as a team. We never had to wait for a server, and they were all quite gracious.

Food was nice but pretty expensive for the ambiance. Although there is a menu, the staff led us for the fixed menu which we were not able to understand and differentiate from the regular menu. Staff was very friendly.

The food never disappoints. It really is worth it to just get the "salad bar," but how can one say no to the amazingly flavorful meats? Personally, I had the sea bass this time. Not as impressive as the meat options would have been. The tres leches dessert was a huge hit. Everyone left dinner quite happy, including the teen.
