We came in for lunch. Salad bar was excellent. We started with some shrimp cocktail. Shrimp were huge and delicious. The parade of meats was excellent, as usual. No room for dessert, but the Brazilian lemonade was outstanding.

We came here with our eleven year old as a special treat. We were seated in a back room, kind of crammed at the end near a birthday party and when we asked to be moved, they moved us to a back corner empty room, like we were in time out. It was really quiet and kind of weird. Next... More

On our vacations, we always choose one high end exceptional dining experience to enjoy. Fogo de Chao seemed like a great opportunity to try something new... So much meat and plenty of time. We were greeted and taken to our reserved table promptly. Our server recommended a limeaid for our 12 year old daughter and she jumped at it.. you... More

We were visiting and celebrating a special occasion. We typically eat at the Fogo near our home at least 4 times a year. We know the process, the cuisine and the price. We love eating at Fogo, but this time we were quite dissatisfied. Multiple times we had to ask for refills of bread, polenta, potatoes etc. We even had... More

First and foremost please be aware how much money you will spend for dinner here. If you just eat dinner and drink nothing but water and order nothing else, you will spend a minimum of $60 per person. Add some wine or a cocktail or a dessert and you will end up like us, spending $280 for dinner for two.... More

I am a HUGE fan of the churrascaria -- how can a never-ending parade of succulent, freshly grilled meats be wrong? It simply cannot. That said, I have eaten at several other churrascarias and this was definitely my least favorite. It was still a really delicious dinner, but I would not visit this place again. I guess I have been... More

I love tender steak and tasty chicken. This place has it all. I went here with a group of work colleagues for a fantastic night. Open salad bar with lots of options. Seafood for pescatarians. But lots of meat cooked to perfection for all of those meat eaters out there. Walking distance to monuments etc for an after dinner stroll.

The wait staff are very friendly. The salad bar is exotic and the meat is always delicious. Just remember to turn your coaster to red when you're done or you will be in a meat coma. The polenta is so yummy and the plantains add a sweet mix to the meats. I only each Chicken and I was fulfilled and... More

Fogo de ChaoR (fo-go dee shoun), is an authentic Southern Brazilian steakhouse. In 1979, FogoR began sharing the gaucho way of preparing meat in Porto Alegre, Brazil. Today, our gaucho chefs still expertly grill each of our 16 cuts of meat and offer you continuous tableside service.

We invite you to enjoy the delicious preparations of our gaucho chefs along with our gourmet salad bar, authentic Brazilian side dishes, and award-winning wine list.
