I believe the charge was overly priced for what all that I and my partner ate. This was excluding seafood. Also there wasn’t much steak coming to our table, mostly dried chicken.

We had to ask so many times for the filet mignon. It was taking up to 10 min before they were showing up. On the other hand, They kept coming with the chicken and pork.
Also very few selections of meat. Overall quite a disappointment. I am used to Texas de Brazil which offer 15 different meat selections.

When we were first seated and placed our drink orders everyone’s drink as well as our entree’s came before my cocktail I then expressed to the waitress that I still didn’t have my drink and I no longer wanted it. The food where do I start completely subpar not fresh and quite frankly disgusting we will NEVER go back here and will spread the word.

Once again, Fogo de Chao does not disappoint. We arrived a couple of minutes before they start seating and we were given the option of waiting at the bar or sitting in the reception area. We were seated immediately at 5:30 and even though they filled up quickly we were served promptly and courteously. Even with dessert, we were out by 6:30 - plenty of time to get to the next stop on our evening's plans.

Good place to try at least once,and for special events . A meat eaters delight, also all cuts are heavily seasoned., served and carved tableside, all you can eat. The market table( Salad Bar) is a good option for non meat eaters, many tasty side dishes, and a couple fish options. The service was sort of Blah... We did not feel special, like some other places make us feel. The cocktail choices are tasty! The Flan and tres leches was very good! We probably wont be back unless we have guests that want to try the unique Churrasco experience!

The service was poor, it took 15 to 20 minutes for meat carvers to come to our table with something other than chicken or pork; items we don’t consume. Further, the quality of the available meats has diminished from previous experiences, or the establishment was holding the better quality meats from hitting the floor. The establishment has become too casual, there is no etiquette. The carpets are dirty and warned-out. This establishment requieres better management and an upgrade. Will not return.

Service was lacking. Inattentive server. Had to ask for dessert and again for check. It's too pricey a place for that! Meat gauchos very nice but tried to ply us with chicken, pork and other cheap meat. Had to ask for beef and lamb. Lamb guy came once. Seriously?

This was my first time at this restaurant and we came with a large group. They have a very nice salad bar and the rolls at the table are amazing but I would not fill up on that. The meats started coming around and we started out strong with some very tasty meats. As our eating went on the quality went down a little and it was hard to locate certain cuts of meat even though I saw the servers on the floor with other tables. I would go during the week where the price is more affordable. At $59 it is a lot not including any drinks

I had thought that prime rib was one of the meats. Apparently not, as we were never offered any. Also, they don't have fountain soda?! Ridiculous. The tres leches cake for dessert is outstanding. The parmesan pork was savory.

Visited Fogo de Chao in Philadelphia. I would recommend to someone who has never experienced this type of meal. Other than that, I found all the beef to be extremely salty. Also, our reservation was at 5:30 on Saturday night, and what I noticed is that they only brought out the lower end meats in the beginning and after having the plates cleared (about an hour later) we did start to see the better meats (lamb, beef rib, filet). You are still able to eat them at this point, you would just need to ask for another plate. Unfortunately, by this time, you are already full from both the Market table and lower end meats.

Although it has an extensive cold food bar (including rare items such as palm hearts), the signature attraction here is the unlimited supply of grilled meats, cut from skewers at tableside. The meat is delicious, but the price is high at $60 per person. The high noise level, including music turned up to headache-inducing volume, detracted significantly from the experience. Bottom line: Good food if you’re fortunate enough that price doesn’t matter. If spending >$300 for dinner for four gives you pause, go elsewhere.
