Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse - Dubai
Although the meat is outstanding, we had to ask several times to actually get it served and the market table felt poor with the cheapest ingredients.
Amazing service. On the spot. Good quality of meet. A bit of noise if u have a table by the window because of the music speakers.
I would definitely recommend the food in Fogo de Chao. The ambiance was not what I was expecting as it felt more like a food hall than an upscale restaurant. I have been to other branches before and they are much better. I was surprised at the cost of the wine, even a moderately priced bottle was almost $140USD which is expensive - even when compared to restaurants of a similar standard. I would not usually focus on cost in a review but I think this is worth mentioning. Generally a good experience.
For the price, in comparison to other brunch offers I felt dissatisfied.
The liquor is Normal and limited to basic 5 popular
No Espresso Martinis
Deserts are limited.
I will not go back unless I have too.
Service and staff are great.
Clearly management needs too rethink, as it shows they are cheap.
I recommend the place for any lunch/ dinner occasions. Excellent food, good service and nice staff.
The restaurant needs to up their meat game. Although the service and ambience are really good.
Did the ladies night and it was excellent value. Amazing food and great service.
All meat cuts were at the right temperature, right cooking time. A truly delicious ambience with excellent service. We got to the restaurant 10 min before closing, and allowed us to stay for another hour.
We ordered a churrasco experience with 11 cuts of meat, but there were only 5.
Quality was ok.
Based on my experience, I would never recommend a friend to go.
I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The potato-leek soup was amazing and the lettuce salad was refreshing. The table was split on the monk fish – one person thought it was great, but another felt that the tastes didn't quite mesh. Everyone loved the flat iron steak.
MEAT VERY WEAK, VERY VERY FAR FROM AN AUTHENTIC BRAZILIAN BARBECUE.
The cuts of meat were great, we especially liked the pao de quejo and the fresh market area. Great service too, they made the birthday celebration extra special
We went for a late lunch so it wasn't loud or super busy.. I have experienced it late night though and it can get very "loungy" but for lunch it was just a super classy atmosphere!! Always my favourite restaurant
It was a special occasion snd zi have been to this restaurant in many different countries but this was the worst experience. I asked for a table with a view and we were seated by entrance door. It was cold with air vent blowing straight down at me. Waiter gsve me a tablecloth for a shawl. Gauchos kept passing us by to go to tables in room behind us leaving us with empty plates. Drinks were not refilled till i complained to manager. We were literally ignored sitting there with empty plates and empty glasses and for that experience i paid $600.
A great location for a celebration meal.
We were most pleased overall for the quality of service, food and ambiance.
It did seem loud but it was to be expected has they had live entertainment in the venue.
We were waited on my Leandro who could do enough for us. Relaxed and efficient he made pir evening perfect.
We were sat between large groups. Hard to have a conversation. Service was great.
Good quality of meat buffet , the ambience is ok but not super. I found a bit expensive.
Amazing place! The service was excellent, the staff is really nice and friendly, the food is outstanding and the ambiance is perfect with the live band. Absolutely the best brunch I have been in Dubai.
Place is worth what we paid for. Just wanted to commend Ryan, the gentleman who served us. He was pretty amazing. Would definitely love to come back.
Is was nice but it would be better if the people severing the meat would also give meat to the people outside
Our experience at Fogo the Chao has been a crescendo.
Reservation system on their website is quick and efficient. Made a booking for 3 (mum, dad and I)politely asking for a nice table as it was my parents anniversary and wanted to treat them with an iftar dinner out.
We were greeted with a big smile and escorted to a cozy table next to the window with a stunning view of the Burj Khalifa..Loved it!
Service was prompt and impeccable: the employees know how to take care of their customers. Astonishing level of professionalism and dedication.
As it was our first time there, we were explained how the churrascaria concept works and we then started our meat feast.
Food was delicious.. And the meat cuts are the real deal! Everything was very well cooked and presented (ofc we liked some cuts more than others, but I honestly think that this is related to one's personal taste). The salads bar has an incredible variety of items (veggies, fruits, appetiser, fish, cheeses, mezze, etc).
Done with the meal, they came to take our desserts order.. But few minutes later, rather than receiving our order, we were presented with a beautiful small cake with a candle on top and the "Happy Anniversary" inscription - which got my mum in tears!!!
The staff at the venue went really above and beyond, making their day truly special and can't really thank them enough.
I'm deeply impressed!
Despite this random act of kindness, I absolutely recommend to go there as it's truly worth the experience.
This was a bit disappointing. I had been planning to go for a while, but saved it for my Husband’s birthday. The meat was all over cooked for our taste and the variety was less than I hoped. This is probably the worst of this type of Brazilian steakhouse that I’ve been to.
The staff were very nice and the atmosphere was good. The salad bar looked quite good, but for people who prioritize the meat I wouldn’t recommend.
I tried the iftar but I thought you have some spécial meat and desert for this special occasion
Meat selection during Ramadan was just about ok and I didn't particularly enjoy more than half the cuts. Service was also just about ok- but I guess a full restaurant during Iftar can test the best staff.
Great food and good value for money. Staff is very friendly.
Good choice for business lunch/dinner, friends night out.
Hands down the Best Brazilian Churrasco meats and caipirinhas in Dubai! Keep up the good work.
I think that was the most expensive Brazilian BBQ restaurant I ever have been. I have traveled the world and I never paid more than £35 for the bbq experience. At Fogo de chão it was nearly £64. The buffet had nothing extraordinary and they try to push you to add a shisha with the meal. I don’t smoke and I repeated that few times and they kept saying it. I don’t think is worth the money sorry.
Good was great, meat is excellent quality and service was very good. Can't think of anything to fault it. Was an enjoyable meal.
A wonderful restaurant. If you're into a full brazilian experience, this is the place. The meat were cut perfectly. The cutmans really knew how to treat their custermers. 10/10. Only problem is the price. It is fair but only on special occasion.
Very bad Ramadan menu I don’t know why they are selected this items
- Took a long time to be serviced
- Not too many varieties of meat
- salad bar very basic for Fogo de Chao standards
What i did not like was watching clients with a very different treatment than me.
First i had my reservation at 3.30 , when I arrived they told me that the restaurant will close at 4 and we ahould leave at 4.15 !! Why did you have this reservation time when you are closing in about 30 min ??
Every body was staring at us like they are telling us to eat and leave , the food was good but the waiter should ask us if we like our meat well done or not ! They served us well done meat so we orderd medium and that took our time ! The salad bar was delicious, but the did not explain the whole experience to us and also the waitress served ur the wrong type of wine and had to change it !
Food was rubbish and expensive restaurant looks dated
Food was very good.
Meat especially was fantastic.
The selection at the buffet can compliment the meat quite lovely.
On the downside, the service could be better.
Very aggressive pushing in order to upsell.
From which package to select to wine, coffees etc.
And some little mistakes like while being served desert table wasn't proper clear by sides like mashed potatoes etc.
Food was really good, prime meat cuts,.. whenever they were served,.. the service was too slow, leaving long gaps between each meat cut service,.. we ordered sparkling water and they bring us still, we ordered a fried bananas service, and they brought after remind them twice,... definitely bad service experience,..not worth to return.
I'd like to say thanks a lot for the excellent service that I have got this night with you, the food, services, quality and staff were very fantastic and thanks a lot for staff "Lillian" the one who offer to me and my wife the complementary dessert cake for our anniversary many thanks to you and I appreciate. It was my first time but won't be the last I'll be back again and I'll highly recommend Foto De CHAO to all my friends, relatives and my colleagues as well.

In the U.S. we dine at Fogo on average 2 times per month. Our favorite dish is the Cheesecake. The Dubai location do not have Cheesecake and their menus was missing a few other items that we usually like. Above all, my birthday discount code was not honored in Dubai. Overall, the service was okay, not as good as in the states. I almost felt as if we were treated as if we did not belong by the stares...maybe it was due to the language barrier. However, Dubai is a place with hundreds of other cultures and languages visiting and living here, so the reaction from us being Americans sort of threw me off. Then the other reactions when I responded to the waiters question as to if we had ever had the Fogo experience, I told them that we eat at Fogo very often in the US and our city has at least 3 locations with way more items on the menu. The staff was a kind as they knew how and they even brought out a birthday treat. They were very nice, their was just a weird disconnect somewhere.
The experience was excellent the waitress Daniela she did a very good job and Suellen the manager was amazingly friendly and caring not just for my table for every one on the restaurant, thank you and definitely will come back.
Feel like I am in home when I go there.
