    The food was just "okay". I wasn't sure which cuts of meat were being served (partly because I couldn't understand the meat server, or I couldn't hear them and felt bad asking them constantly to repeat themselves). Some of the meat was really delicious, and some of it was chewy and tough. The cheese bread and the grilled cheese with honey was great. There wasn't anything on the buffet table that really wowed me. The mango habenero cocktail was good. The tres leches cake we had for dessert was scrumptious. The server was VERY attentive. I would give the service 5 stars!! But for the price, and flavor of the food it was just "okay" at best for me.

    I have gone there 3 times. Drinks take 1 hour to come. The meats rarely come by. I asked numerous times for filet and it took 75 minutes. We were done with eating by the time drinks came. This happens every times we have gone. I don't write reviews but upsetting after 3 shots. We don't have this issue at Chimas

    The Las Olas location just opened less than a month ago, so we were expecting some hiccups. Our server was clueless, recommending non-existent menu options (we ordered a la carte), taking our drink order 3x, and asking to clear our side dishes before our meals even came out! Regardless, the market table selections were delicious and the ambiance was both trendy and romantic. Decent (but not great) *date-night* value.

    Food was amazing! They offer 50% off wine bottles from South America. We asked/ordered 5 different bottles they didn’t have in stock. That means the waiter came back and forth 5 times without a bottle of wine or sometimes, the wrong bottle of wine. We went the whole meal with a drink other than water. The manager came around to check on us and we let him know what was going on. He explained they were having “distribution issues” - understood, everyone is. Some tell customers that, update the wine list, have someone come by who knows wine and offer us something comparable. Don’t offer me a Pinot noir if I’m looking for a Cab Franc or Shyrah. I know this sounds bougie, but if I’m spending $400 on dinner, I expect better. Again, food was good.

    The food was absolutely amazing, the overall service was great; unfortunately the waitress was extremely pushy. I don’t partake in alcohol and it became an issue for some reason. Donating to a foundation should be an option, but pushing the table to donate forcefully is just too much. Overall a great experience and I’ll be back, but would like to not deal with the waitress again.

    The cuts of meat was definitely not up to the usual Brazilian steakhouse standard. The fruit weren’t fresh at the salad bar. We waited almost 30 minutes before anyone showed up to our table to serve cuts of meat it was almost as if we were invisible. The server was also very slow. I’ve had better food and service at Texas de Brazil. And so much better everything at Chima. Also the Caipirinha were disgusting. This was a very disappointing visit.

    Fogo is a pretty restaurant and nicely decorated, but it is not warm and fuzzy as we prefer. The salad bar was excellent, especially according to my wife. Our drinks were good and the service was excellent. We never waited for anything. As a matter of fact we had two waiters assigned to our table. Our major complaint was the quality of the meat. The temperature was to our liking. My wife likes medium well and I like medium rare and those tastes were satisfied. But the meat was chewy and not particularly tasty. Of course I'm comparing it to steakhouses, but that was what this was. With $15 parking and a 20% gratuity, this was a very expensive meal.

    Lovely experience. Brand new restaurant built from the scratch. The food amazing as I encounter on the other Fogo’s units. Nice to be in a new building and we can easily self Park and leave the car on a covered garage building. The Papaya cream is a must have dessert.

    The service was terrible with none of the customary appetizers that get served upon arrival being served until we were finished with our meal (after we finally flagged someone down to remind them). Our drink orders didn’t arrive until halfway through our meal. The meat selection was poor and the food quality disgusted the entire family. The last 15 minutes of the meal were spent waiting for the waiter to correct the bill after still charging for the wine that did not arrive in time. We will not be returning.

    The hostess checked us in for our reservation. The next person led us to our table was totally devoid of personality with no smile etc. The initial server greeted us and explained the menu, the actual server was very nice and helpful and performed well. The salad bar was plentiful and stocked and clean. I spoke with a manager and we chatted about staffing issues.

    Meat was coming out raw.. the cuts of meat were low quality and untasty. We had a table of 6 and they kept coming to the table with one single piece of meat???? How are 6 people going to share one lamb chop?? Will not return here.. will go to Chima, much better quality and service.

    Nice ambience but they need to improve the service . They also need more people working at the bar . The drinks take too long to arrive . The waiters need to understand the concept . They don’t look to your card selection and keep offering you meets that you didn’t request .

    The experience was mostly good. Taking a star away due to the fact that anytime we needed anything to be brought out by anyone that was not ourselves or our gauchos, it took at least 10-15 minutes. Even when Mauro the general, manager handled it. if this was not a very large and well organized entity, I'd say the issues were to be expected. But that's not the case. Fogo de Chao is a very large business, with many years of tradition and service. We had issues with drinks and desserts taking too long (even coffee), drinks were also being made with no receipe consistency, plates not being replaced when one got up to go back to the salad bar or were full with meat fat or leftovers(a standard for a Brazilian steakhouse) and we didn't feel our server was trained to handle things they way they happen at a Brazilian type of steakhouse. We all also agreed the Feijoada was not good at all, which was a very unusual item to be served with churrasco to begin with, but it just didn't taste as a regular feijoada at all and we just don't see a future for it in Fogo's menu. The meat quality is I-N-C-R-E-D-I-B-L-E, our favorites were Fraldinha, Cordero and Slow Cooked Ribs! Our papaya dessert was perfectly refreshing and sweet but not overwhelming. Donato was an amazing gaucho and too funny, with soccer team love. Our overall experience was good. We will be back soon.

    We had been to the on in south beach. The food here was about the same. A lot of different kinds of meats. Some are good (pichaña) some really bad (lamb chops). However the server we had was not good at all. Would rarely come around. Plates were stacked up and ready to go but he wouldn’t get the hint the few times he came around. We could have had more adult drinks but again he didn’t bother to see our drinks were empty. Definitely need to work out the kinks. Told the manager but she didn’t really seem to care.

    We had a fabulous lunch there today. Had friends in from out of town who had never been to Fogo so it was a must go. We all had the full lunch with the Market Place salad bar and the Charutso Brazilian meat served my the Gauchos. Everything was delicious. I must say our favorite was the Pork with Garlic and the lamb chops. Those two were exceptional. Everything is was very go but not as good as the pork and the lamb. It was a bit too much for lunch but can’t wait to go back for dinner. Our friends loved it and want to go back next time when their in town.
