Service was sub par. Had reservations but they didn't seat us for 15 min, even though the place was not even half way full. The service started off fine, but eventually no one was around and we had to request things multiple times before anyone showed up or brought it out. Even to get the check took 10 minutes of flagging someone down. It was so annoying trying to get anything or get refills. Won't be going back.

I have been here before and never had an experience like this one. The food was great, but the buffet table had a poor selection compared to prior visits. They came around often with meats for the first few minutes and then we noticed they frequently passed us even though we had green up. A lot of time sitting, waiting with an empty plate. We also had an issue getting drinks and our check at the end. When we received our check it had items that were not ours. It took greater than 20 minutes to resolve this while we waited. overall, I hate to give up on this place, but it’s just not the same.

We had a reservation for 730, but had to wait about an hour after. The staff was very apologetic and treated us wonderfully once we were seated. The food was superb and the desserts were complimentary for our wait. We enjoyed ourselves!

When I came in here I knew I was going to be spending a pretty penny. But I must say 400$ later, it was so worth it!!! It's a special occasion type of place for the most part (unless u have large pockets). The service I recieved was THE BEST service I've ever recieved at any place I've ever been!! I wish I remembered my waiters name because he made this an incredible dining experience for my birthday and for all who joined me! I would deff recommend!!

This was my first experience at this restaurant. It was amazing!!!. We made reservations and they seated us right away. The food selection at the fresh market bar was excellent. There was a lot to choose from at salad bar. Everything was fresh!!! The meat selection was the ultimate in Brazilian cuisine. I really enjoyed the lamb chops and the sirloin steak. The meat was very flavorful and tender. The drink selection was outstanding. Our wait staff was on point with everything. I will come back again to this restaurant. Kudos!!! We were celebrating my birthday!!!

The service was pretty bad at this visit. The meat servers kept going around our table and not coming to us. The food was a bit disappointing too. I remembered the quality being much better than this experience. I got sick from dinner the next day. Not sure if it was the salad bar or meat but its likely the salad bar because people from my table had meat and they were fine.

Not only is it UNLIMITED MEAT, its tasty meat, too. The wait staff went the extra mile and made my daughter's birthday lunch amazing. Dinner prices are more expensive so skip breakfast and go have lunch here.

The food was great. Our table setting was bad and the lighting was not great. We didn't have any of the gauchos come with meats until way after. They kept walking away after I requested a sampling.
It was a bad experience. We came a few minutes late and didn't get seated until after our party was complete. We didn't even get the beeper! Another party, with the same scenario came after us, and the did receive the beeper. I get that the restaurant was busy from the Veteran's day celebration, but our experience for first time at that location was not a good one. The drinks were great and the salad bar choices were delicious and everything was clean...to include the bathroom!!! I just think our table location was not a good one because we were all the way in the corner. We may try again, when it's not so busy.

Booking ahead is pointless. You still check in and get in line reservations don’t help. Food wasn’t even good. No choice on sides. This place would have been ok if it was 55 or 60 for two but not 160z

I have eaten at Fogo de Chao locations in Sao Paulo and Boston, which were both great experiences. My recent visit to the Chicago location was disappointing for two reason. First I had 8:15 PM reservation which I arrived for at 8pm, but didn't get seated until close to 9pm. The reception area was very chaotic and not something I had experienced at other Fogo locations. The waitstaff seemed a bit overwhelmed and I had make several requests to get meat servers to stop back by my table. The food itself was very good and certianly on par with their other locations

Even though we had a reservation for 7:45 PM, they made us wait for an hour on Saturday night. There was huge crowd and they obviously lost control. The wait and delay was very poorly handled by the rude host and manager. They essentially ruined our Saturday night plans.

The people serving the food should also ask the other person in the table if they also want to have the food. most of them just serve food to one person and left fast as if there's no other people in the table.

I made a reservation but was running late. When I called the restaurant to tell them that I shall be 5 minutes late past the reservation time, the hostess informed me that she can only hold the table for 15 minutes. I asked her if the restaurant was busy and she said no. So I asked her why was it important for her to tell me that when I just told her I am running 5 minutes behind.

When my group of 7 showed up within 3 minutes of the call, the restaurant had 4 tables, and we were asked to wait at the bar, which made no sense when we had a reservation and clearly she made no effort to have a table made ready. Anyways we ordered drinks at the bar and as we were served, we were told the table was ready.

The hostess literally sat us right at the entrance of the dining room beside the hostess stand with an entirely empty dining room. The hostess completely failed to be warm, welcoming and genuine to welcome anyone in our group, but rather someone that that lacks proper training and positive leadership to display a warm and genuine first point of contact with guests. I didn't say anything as I was entertaining guests, and not just that, but she told one of my guests that the table was ready when I made the reservation and introduced myself by the name which the reservation was made when I first walked in. Very poor service on her part, but then again, you have to train people at the door much better.

A few friends and myself were celebrating our birthday. The service was good but the food wasn’t the best. I know they went through a renovation but there was less food than previously served. There use to be way more options for a few dollars less. Not impressed or to satisfied with their food. I’m going to go back to Texas de Brazil for a better variety.
