Fogo de Chão is a leading Brazilian steakhouse, or churrascaria, which has specialized in fire-roasting high-quality meats since 1979 utilizing the centuries-old Southern Brazilian cooking technique of churrasco. Fogo offers guests a wide variety of premium seasoned meats, that are carefully fire-roasted to expose their natural flavors, including the house specialty picanha sirloin, filet mignon, ribeye, and lamb chops to name a few. Additionally, Fogo offers a gourmet Market Table & Feijoada Station, which includes seasonal salads, soup, fresh vegetables, feijoada (traditional black bean stew with rice, fresh orange and yuca flour), and much more. Southern Brazilian side dishes such as pão de queijo (warm cheese bread), crispy hot polenta, and caramelized bananas are served family style. To further complement the dining experience, the restaurant offers an award-winning wine list, creative and classic cocktails, and a tempting dessert menu.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

Friendly staff and nice view, from the outside the view was not that great from the inside during to reflection from the windows. Food was ok, not impressed. Only one cut of the beef was truly tender. Majority of the meats (excluding chicken) were tough. Even the prime rib cut was "messed" up!Flavour wise was ok. Full experience not worth it. The cheaper cuts of meat keeps coming out and when requested for the more expensive cuts like filet mignon, it took forever. Even beef ribs took a long time to come. I was quite annoyed sitting there and waiting.
