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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Thank you.

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.

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.
