I been going to fogo for years. I owe then a long overdue review. These people are unbelievable. Not just amazing food but I can easily say this is the least they offer to give you a wonderful experience. The customer service is personalized to an extent I rarely ever saw anywhere else. I mainly go back for the service that somehow tops their super tasty food. If you never been to this fogo you are missing out on a loooooot of fun and great food and wonderful time. My God these people are awesome. Thank you sooooo much

I was in a party of 2 and each time a gaucho came to the table they would offer my MALE friend meat and immediately walk away without offering me (female) any. This happened with multiple different gauchos and multiple separate times. They would approach them facing them and offer meat with their back towards me. They would never face me or offer. Each time I would have to yell after them or flag people down for food. It was ridiculous. I shouldn't have to flag people down or yell after people to get food when they were already at my table. I would ask and they would walk away. This was blatant misogynistic behavior and is not acceptable . I couldn't believe how commonplace this behavior was.

Great value for Restaurant Week. Servers kept coming to the table with all varieties of meat. Best pork and chicken I ever had. The sides were not special. The salad bar has extensive types of dishes which were continually restocked. The rest itself is in a gorgeous room

The only reason I’m giving this restaurant 4/5 stars instead of 5 is because the waiter failed to tell us that there would be an extra charge for shrimp. Everything at this restaurant is free flowing, waiters are constantly coming to your table and offering you the different meat options. Being as though I’d never been here before it would have been nice to know that when saying yes to the shrimp that it was going to be an extra $21.50. Other than that the food and attentiveness of the staff was outstanding.

See attached receipts confirming Fogo De Chao's Center City Location overcharged me by $38.07.
I submitted an online request for reimbursement of $42.39, which is the overage of what I paid based on tipping 18% for the CORRECT receipt showing $147.13. I tipped on the incorrect "Signature Receipt" which showed $185.20, i.e., tipping $30.80, for an even payment of $216.00.

I did not realize I had been duped until two days later after the charge hit my debit card account.

Can Fogo De Chao help to expedite this refund request?

I visited Fogo Philadelphia during restaurant week and unfortunately the food was not as good as it usually is. The taste seemed off and the meat was not as well seasoned. The servers were good and friendly overall.

We were sat all the way in the back of the restaurant. So we were waiting long periods of time for the different types of meat to come out. We decided to pay more money for the full meal verses the Restaurant Week deal. They said we would get the best meats. The food was not terrible but was not worth the price at all. And for less money we could have received dessert. They would not give us dessert even though we paid more money. The food, service and ambiance was much better at Chima's and dessert is included in your meal.

The food was excellent and the wait staff was great too but they don’t understand the concept of a reservation. Had an 8:30 reservation and arrived at 8:28. The person ahead of us had just arrived and didn’t have a reservation and they were told about 30 minutes. Then gave our name and they gave us a buzzer and asked us to wait until it went off. Around 9 the group ahead of us was sat. Then around 9:05 our buzzer goes off. Apparently the reservation means nothing it’s first come first serve which was disappointing.

We had a party of 10. They seated us at this very long rectangular table. It was very crowded seating and very hard to get out to get apps or to go to bathroom. Barely any elbow room for anyone. When the guys with meats come around they would have to squeeze between 2 people to cut it for us. We got the seafood tower and the lobster was over cooked so that was a disappointment.

On a positive note the meat and app table is always amazing.

Absolutely top-notch dining experience, from start to finish. Grateful to Open Table for making the reservation process simple and streamlined, and kudos to the restaurant for having our table ready on a busy Saturday night. Stunning dining room, very energetic and lots to look at.

This was my first time at this restaurant, although I'd heard good things. Service was impeccable, managers were very involved, drinks were delish, and the food was worthy of every star. As a chef and a foodie, I was looking for Fogo to live up to the hype, and it did.

Will recommend freely and looking forward to sharing with family and friends.

A+++

Food was a bit disappointing this visit. The salad bar options were not great and we had to ask twice for a specific cut of meat. The servers were coming out with the same two or three meats constantly. I usually love the food at this location but this particular time was sub par.

Saltiest cuts I have ever tasted. No variety, server was aloof even when he came to present birthday cake. Literally dropped it on the table and said the coldest "happy birthday." I understand if he was exhausted, but wish (as a person in the service industry) he would lighten up a little for the sake of good old customer service.

I go to Fogo de Chao for the food. I always recommend skipping the salad bar, as wonderful as it is and going straight to the good stuff. Garlic sirloin, prime rib, he said they serve.
