Though it was super busy and we had to wait for a little over 1/2 hour past our reservation, we had great service from the 2 ladies who waited on our table! Thank you for a wonderful evening and will definitely continue to recommend your establishment to our guests!

The food was excellent! The service was very good. However the wait time (45 minutes) was too long considering we had reservations! The customer service of the hostess staff was disappointing- they were unapologetic about the wait. I realize it may not have been their doing but they should apologize on behalf of the restaurant. Otherwise it was a great meal and I would recommend it and I plan on returning-but probably at an off peak time, and still call ahead to see how far behind they are.

The meat was very good and tasty but they come around so fast before you say you want it they are already gone, need some work on salad bar as far as choices and needs to be monitored more as far as keeping it clean, just very messy and not enough choices as far as the lettuce did not look fresh. We went for Father's Day and was very busy so the waiters with the meat just would fly by and could not really taste what we wanted.

Dissapointing... went on a Friday night and literally there was only Picanha, lamb chops, and chicken. Asked several times for Filet mignon and never showed up. I am used to no need to ask for things at Fogo and was not the case this time (asked for filet mignon, asked for wine, asked for polenta ) since otherwise I will still be waiting. Dissapointing... dissapointing...

This was my first experience and it was okay. I thought there would be more variety with the food. It was mainly steak and more steak, chicken here and there. I really wanted lamb. Lamb never made it to my table. You really don't get to choose what you want, you just kind of get whatever makes it to your table. It was our 10 year anniversary. Not very romantic. Even when I turned my card indicating I didn't want more food, staff kept approaching the table while my husband and I were talking trying to sell us drinks. For the price, I think I'd rather just had a nice romantic dinner at a quiet place where I get what I want and can actually spend more time talking to who I'm with instead of staff. The salad bar was simply ok but the steak I did have was pretty good and that is what my overall rating comes from. I would recommend doing it to say you've done it but I probably won't go back.

We were Disappointed. Went for a birthday dinner and was told if we weren’t there on time we wouldn’t be seated for an hour and a half. Got there on time and waited 45 minutes. Food service was sporadic and salad bar was like being on a cruise ship: crowded with aggressive people. Lamb chops that were excellent on a previous visit were subpar. Not what we had in mind for a special birthday.

I had a reservation for 9 people at 8:15pm and were not seated until 9pm (we had even arrived early for our reservation). The manager and hostess kept telling us they were getting the table ready (it does not take 45 minutes to get a table ready). It was especially frustrating since there were a few open tables that we could see that they said they were holding for another reservation after ours. Food was okay but we were so annoyed and hungry by the time they sat us that it was not enjoyable. I won't come here again.

It was my husband’s 50th birthday and we wanted somewhere special that he would enjoy along with our younger children and friends. We hadn’t been to Fogo de Chao in several years, but had always had great service, great food, and an overall, great experience. We had had other celebrations here like my mother’s 60th birthday, Mother’s Day, several Holiday staff lunches, and many, many “just because” dinners and lunches. While the staff was generally pleasant such as the hostess and other management, we didn’t have the same service by the churassco servers. They did not come around frequently, often to the point where we felt slightly ignored. The same servers came around and we had to ask often for servers to give us attention. The “red/green” system was truly not observed through our experience. In addition, we had always grown accustom over the years to being offered/brought a clean plate throughout the meal. We had a larger party of 8 and only two of us received clean plates (and only by our request) throughout our dining experience. After we had clearly finished our meal, our plates sat for a good 15-20 minutes without being removed. It seemed somewhat like an after thought. My husband and our guests all mentioned that the food and the experience had definitely changed since we’d all last been there. The dessert was the one part of the meal that had remained relatively consistent and was really good. While we enjoyed each other’s company as it was a happy occasion, unfortunately, for the money that was spent, we did not enjoy the dining experience as we hoped to for such a special event and evening.

Lots of repeats with the meats, needs more variety and less attitude from the meat runners when we politely say, "No, thank you" for the fifth time with the same meat. A smile would go a long way towards making the evening more enjoyable, especially for the price we paid. We liked the Rosemont location better.

They cater to tables with 4 people or better. They came around with ribs and rib eye and only offered to certain people we had to flag people down to serve us and even then they said they would be back in 5 minutes even though they had meat available to serve. Worse experience ever

The service is amazing, you'll never wait long to be helped. The meat is tender and cooked to perfection. The cocktails are balanced and well crafted. You'll leave feeling full and satisfied. Budget ahead of time, because you will want the full experience and it is well worth the price.

My family went here for Mother's Day Lunch and it was worth every penny! The atmosphere was awesome, the food was amazing, and the sweet lady Vicki even brought me a slice of surprise birthday cheesecake as my birthday was a week before Mother's Day! Everything about this place was great! They even gave all of the Mother's a free lunch/dinner card to come back, and I will definitely be back! This place really made my Mother's Day special! The place was so busy but I still feel like the service was attentive and timely! Awesome! Awesome! Awesome!

We were there to celebrate my daughters college graduation. When our server found out about her graduation, they brought her a special congratulations dessert. Its those little extra details that make you return time & time again. Its one of our favorite restaurants. We always enjoy great service and excellent food.
