Description: 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.

“Flawless Wedding Reception”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

My husband and I chose Fogo de Chao in Baltimore to host our small wedding reception in one of their private back rooms. We chose Fogo for a few reasons. One we have always received exceptional service and delicious food at every visit and two it's where my husband had taken me to dinner the night he proposed.

Jair the manager and all the staff at Fogo were in constant communication with us prior to our reception date. We were able to choose our wines that we wanted to serve to our guests, and decided on two reds and one white. We weren't sure as to the number of bottles but chose a number of 12. We were never charged for any bottles that were unopened.

The room was decorated with beautiful flowers provided by Fogo at no charge, the room in the back is no charge. Plus there was PA equipment that we could use as well as a television if we had wanted to use it. Unfortunately we didn't have a particular cord with us to utilize the big pa speakers because we were using our cell phone to stream pandora during our reception, but luckily we had brought a small set of speakers that worked just great. They also provided us with microphones that was such a nice touch during out toasts.

Our baker had no problem with cake delivery and Fogo made a beautiful table to display the cake on.

The food was once again amazing! Anything we wanted meat wise they went out of their way to bring to us. Our wedding party wanted for nothing! We had several members of the family who had not been to Fogo and they just raved about the food and the service and understand why we love it so much.

If you are looking for an intimate wedding reception venue please don't check Fogo of your list. Call and speak to Jair the manager, he is wonderful kind and courteous and I never worried about anything.

Our reception was beautiful, atmosphere was great, food was awesome, we felt like kings and queens holding court.

Thank you to Jair and all the staff at Fogo for making our dreams come true! You truly understand the meaning of customer service.

“First time going, it was an experience!”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

It was a great experience, I really did enjoy my dinner there. There is a lot to get used to because waiters are constantly coming to the table. But, once you get used to the system, it gets better. I love how they have the salad bar set up and when they bring the sides to the table. Go there if you are extremely hungry, you will get full easily and soon. I love the bacon wrapped chicken!!

The salad bar offers a great selection of meats and cheese. A friendly atmosphere with endless amounts of steak cooked to perfection... Just go.

“First Time- Last Time-Ticket Punched....”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

So after reading mixed reviews, I took the challenge. Here goes:

The valet parking has a smooth operation. Upon entering, the overall ambiance was reminiscent of a school cafeteria so forget a "quiet" dinner if that is your intent. Our server did not seem motiviated but rather flustered by being overwhelmed. We had to ask for things instead of having the server proactively check on us. The salad bar was exquisite and the meats were good. It was pricey and I'll admit, the service nor ambiance merited the price of the meal (looking at the whole picture). In truth? we did not have a good dining experience. Hence, for now we punched our "been there-done that" ticket and probably will not return.

“Limited selection and overcooked meat”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

Been to several Fogo de Chao before. This one was a bit disappointing because both the salad bar and the barbecue selection seemed a bit limited. Plus, no seafood in baltimore on the grill is also disappointing. Some of the meat that was served rare was overcooked and dried out. I did get some rare cuts of the fillet and leg of lamb.

They do however, serve a fantastic caipirinha!
