Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse - Philadelphia
Fogo de Chão is an authentic Brazilian Steakhouse (Churrascaria) that has been setting the standard in Brazil for the past 36 years. Today, our gaucho chefs still expertly grill and carve tableside each of our cuts of meat like Picanha (signature sirloin), Filet Mignon, Ribeye, Fraldinha (Brazilian sirloin) Cordeiro (lamb) and more. In addition to the main dishes, enjoy our gourmet Market Table, authentic Brazilian side dishes, and award-winning wine list. Guests can also choose to enjoy lighter seafood selections or enjoy the gourmet Market Table only option.
We also offer semiprivate and private areas that can accommodate parties up to 120.
We arrived before the first seating at 5:30. While we were waiting I took my children to the restroom. It was filthy! One of the toilet seats was broken off in a stall, it didn't appear as though it had been cleaned recently and the downstairs overall had a funky smell. The market table was ok. I have had better selection at other similar restaurants. The meats, in particular the beef, were the highlight of the meal. The chicken was average. For what they charge I doubt I ate my money's worth. The servers were also excellent with my children, which was good since it's not necessarily a "kid place". They were kind and attentive to what they liked. Even still, I highly doubt I will be back when I can get a similar, if not better meal for a better price elsewhere.
Dinner is always good there. The meats are fantastic and so is the salad bar. Service this time wasn't what it usually is, but that happens. We'll be going back.
Always a favorite of mine. Great drinks excellent service and delicious food
Me and my partner loved it and enjoyed it
Been here many times. Always a great place!
There for my boyfriends birthday which was never acknowledged by any of the staff. The service was not good. We ordered the shrimp and lobster appetizer the shrimp where good but the lobster tail had nothing in them. There were also claws and the server said I will be right back with crochets and butter for you. 30 min later still no crackers or butter. I didn’t even eat it. It was not a very good experience.
Great food, great service, continued high quality. Highly recommend.
Food was excellent. Our server disappeared for long periods of time. Other servers had to bring us our sides and check. Our pitchers of sangria came out warm. These little things annoyed us but all in all, still a good night. I understand it was a busy night.
Great food. Great service, but very loud. I would not recommend this place for a romantic evening. I strongly suggest you make a reservation because this place is extremely busy and even with a reservation there is a little bit of a wait. But overall i love the food, it is great quality.
Great food as usual, but the service wasn’t as good as it normally is.
It was my moms birthday and they brought her the biggest piece of cake that was a surprise to us all.
Everything was very nice. But when I did my reservation online I asked for a birthday dessert to come out to the table, but nothing came.
The food was amazing! The service was fast and very considerate. Definitely will be returning!
The food was good but the service from the people other than the meet servers was not. We waited for a while before our drink order was taken, and later again to order a second, only one side came near our table (when we asked for the bananas at the end of our meal we waited about 10 minutes for a plate to arrive), and we waited a long time for our check.
Good we liked it
Food was outstanding as always. The waitstaff was less attentive but expected as much due to the Valentine’s Day weekend.
This is our favorite restaurant! Best food with even better service. This place is such a fun experience.
We had an amazing experience here for our Valentine’s Day dinner. The market table had a wonderful selection, staff was very attentive and personable, and all of our food was fantastic. My personal favorites were the parmesean-crusted pork and caramelized bananas. Definitely will be coming back for our next special occasion!
Valet took way too long, 25 minutes to get my car is crazy.
The experience was great. Everyone was willing to satisfy your needs. I requested a certain type of meat in less than 5 minutes the gentleman showed up. I will definitely go back.
Came here for Valentine’s Day. They took us back immediately and they were very quick to get us the drinks we wanted and even help us pick. The meats came as fast or as slow as you wanted and the salad bar was delicious!
It was great!
Busy Valentine’s Day dinner, it was crazy busy with people everywhere, but overall it was a wonderful date night.
Food experience was exquisite. Very fresh and tasty. Service was excellent. The price was extravagant. At that price, would only visit once in a great while. Other than the price, would recommend to others.
Outstanding. Been hearing about this place forever, and it was even better than expected. The filet mignon and the bacon wrapped filet were especially to die for. The salad bar was amazing and beautiful as well. Kind and swift service. Looking forward to the next special occasion for this! :)
My family loves Brazilian steakhouses. We usually go to Chima and Nabrasa. The reason we went to Fogo de Chao was bowling across the street. My 17 year old son had a birthday that day. We paid for valet parking and decided to go to Fogo.
Both Salad bar and meat selection were limited. The quality of food was also poor. Meat had no good flavor.
We did not like any food but the wine was good. Our waiter was ok but 2 managers were awesome trying to assist and asking our opinion about experience.
What can say?! I will not spend more than $400 for 5 people for this food and experience. Go to Chima!!!
A good place to go once in a while. This particular Fogo was worse than the one in Boston, in my opinion
Have been there a couple of times and the food never disappoints. Our service Olti was amazingly attentive to all our needs.
Took our father for his birthday and he’s still talking about it! Great experience! Loved the selection on the salad bar. The lamb and ribeye were my favorite cuts of meat! Loved my cocktail grapefruit crush. At the end they brought out a cheesecake with the plated decorated for my dads bday! Great customer service.
Great meat choices ...
It was the first time for all of us to eat at a Brazilian steakhouse and it was definitely an experience. The meats were all delicious and it was neat how you flipped the coaster to let them know if you wanted more meat or not. I wasn't blown away by the market table but it was still good. I had read about it ahead online so I think that had my hopes very high. The meat is very filling so I'm not sure it was worth the money for me but I'm sure for some people it's a deal! I'd definitely recommend it to friends to try but I'm not sure I'd go back.
One of our favorite places! Started with drinks at the bar which were great. Seated right away and then enjoyed our dinner. Waitress was very attentive. Food was delicious & very fresh. We will definitely be back!
Other than having to request a certain cut of meat several times, the experience was okay until we had to wait 40+ minutes for the check to arrive. When we finally received our check, we were informed that the bill could not be split amongst more than two credit cards (we had a party of five). Never have my friends experienced this check splitting issue before. We routinely split dining checks 4-6 ways with different cards. Lastly, the whole payment process was very disjointed. Our waitress was not able to run our check, instead it had to go through a separate cashier. My credit card was out of my possession for quite a lengthy period which was a bit unsettling. We even overheard cashiers asking other patrons by if it was indeed their credit card when the check was returned for signature. Empower your wait staff for a seamless customer experience!
Service was absolutely HORRIBLE. We asked for our bill 4x and it took 37 minutes for us to get it. Food was just ok. Would never go back
The food was excellent as always however the service was not and so colored our overall experience. We left disappointed and frustrated.
I did love love the ambience but the welcoming wasn’t what I expected. My husband order a rodizio and He ask if you have rodizio that we can share since I don’t like meat but chicken and right away the young man who was introducing the menu for us instead of a suggestion he threat us that if he coat us sharing a piece o me eating a piece from his plate he will charge us $50 extra. We were ready to leave but since was my wedding anniversary my husband didn’t want to take me out of your place and ruin my special day. You have to be carful when you address to your Costumer your policies or rules.
What can I say. This is probably our favorite place to eat. The "meat" is fantastic and the service people are well trained and attentive. Try it out and be sure to sign up for their emails. Bargains come often.
The friendliest servers I have ever had! Amazing experience!
Good experience. Would prefer a little more quiet next time I visit
Great experience - too much food. I enjoyed the service and quality of food but it was just too much. But what do you expect when you're going to a Brazilian Steak House? Will defiantly visit again.
