The bathrooms were the worst I’ve ever seen. Also, I was calling to say I was going to be a little late and valet my car, but the girl failed to say that valet started at 3:30. So we parked at the Wanamaker. Service was slower than usual.

The staff was very attentive. We were asked multiple times if we wanted a specific cut of meat & it was brought shortly. The salad bar had a lot of delicious fresh options. I recommend the pineapple old fashioned cocktail.

Overcrowded buffet. Not taking any precautions for Covid. The meat had one flavor - salt. Bad food, bad service, but at least it was expensive. Started with waiting for table with a reservation and sarcastic hostess. It was like Disney, but not happy.

Food was great, service was very pleasant and attentive. However, we were over-billed for the drinks: we ordered $6 glasses of Malbec, and had several. When the bill came, we were charged $14 per glass, more than twice as much as we were expecting to pay. When we asked, we were told that "the restaurant was out of all the wines, so they found this substitution". It would be nice to know ahead of time and we, very unfortunately, felt we were cheated. We could have ordered a bottle, or at least another selection based on our means, or maybe we could have selected exactly what we were given, but it would be a knowledgeable choice. It was not honest.

Every Thanksgiving for the past three years, my best friend and I come to Fogo de Chao for dinner and it is always amazing. The CHURRASCO EXPERIENCE is the best for your buck. Come with a huge appetite and enjoy some of the most flavorful meats you can find. From chicken to sausage to steak and my favorite lamb. It is so damn good and to top it off we had dessert and great wine. Needless to say we returned to the hotel and crashed. Thanks again Fogo de Chao for never disappointing!

Not nearly as great as I remembered it to be. This place has gone downhill a bit. My biggest complaint is that the meat was overcooked. And the waiters who bring around the roasted meats were too often bringing chicken legs and sausages. Had to ask for lamb and filet mignon and they were both disappointing. Salad bar is still excellent - truly a cut above. But I'll go to a different steakhouse next time.

We were pretty neglected as far as meat service also asked server and manager but I realized our table was by door and they barely go there. We were given that table cz we had a wheelchair chair . Staff was very attentive and friendly. Meats were either raw or completely over done . Definitely was not a good experience.

It was my son’s birthday and although the service was good, the experience overall was just ok. It was various foods that are advertised that almost never make it to your plate. Having to constantly ask for certain meats to come to your table is annoying. I will probably be taking my future business to Chima.

Was here for an evening with friends. Haven’t been here in quite a long time. Overall service was excellent. As far as food. The bacon wrapped steak and chicken, lamb, top sirloin, and filet mignon were fantastic. I found the other meats to be either a bit dry. For the sides I only enjoyed the caramel bananas. I did not enjoy the garlic mash.

The Philadelphia location skewered meat was as expected. The ordered side dishes and drinks were at least 25-30 minutes later or more every time. Old fashioned came out watery with melted cubes. Wine after we wanted the bill already. Just abysmal on ordered items. Told me they didn’t have what we ordered for dessert so we said forget it - we just want the bill. Then desert showed up anyway! And they charged for it!

We always loved this place (in the past this was our go to for special occasion dining with friends and family),but I think we are done. Food and service was always good in the past, however the last 3 times we have dined we have been underwhelmed and last nights dinner took the cake. While the food was ok, some of the meats were bland and the mashed potatoes were literally drowning in butter.
As for the service, we felt that was lacking the most. I understand that we are in “COvid” times however Just to get a simple soda it took at least 30 minutes and asking 4 different employees. They would all seem to forget and never come back. At one point a sever finally came with my iced tea (forgetting the sweetener I asked for) and a glass of ice for my husband lol ( she remembered the glass but not the soda) We were told she would be right back and again didn’t return although he did finally got his soda at the end of our meal( the only one he ordered to drink that night) We ordered dessert and that also took forever. We eventually had them box it to go….we had a show to get to and could no longer wait. It’s a shame because it seems that the standards and attention to detail are what we loved this place for (along with the yummy food) and it hasn’t been there the last 3 times we have dined.

While the food was excellent, the service was terrible. Our waiter had no experience or training. He told us that we couldn’t order just the Market Table entree because it was only available at lunch, although it was clearly included on the dinner menu. We waited forever for our drinks (my caipirinha finally arrived an hour late). My sons both ordered the Full Churrasco Experience. While the meats they did get were great, the meat servers stopped coming around after about an hour. Because our waiter never came back to check on us, we were unable to get more meat after that. Not exactly the deal we thought we were getting for $60 pp. Sadly, we won’t be going back.

I will not being going back this this place. We received an extremely rude call before our reservation basically threatening us that if we dont get to the restaurant exactly on time that dont bother coming in. That set the mood, and if it was not for my son wanting to go I would have just walked after that. Food service was quick and the quality of foot was fine. Waiting staff was non-existent all together.

I was very excited to give this location a second chance, but it once again did not live up to the expectations. Here's the gist of my experience:

Service was exceptionally slow and horrible. The servers were upset when we politely addressed them that we weren't being served and told us that "Many guests have similar complaints right now but food hasn't been coming out of the kitchen."

I give the food a one star rating, but in truth I don't know what the food tastes like because the servers barely came to the table. We were seated around 7pm, ended up staying past their 10pm close and still left hungry. This is the last place I ever expect to leave hungry.

My experience was frustrating at Fogo for every imaginable reason. The biggest sting after this huge disappointment was having to pay an outrageously high tab, but somehow I found it in me to still leave a very generous tip. Needless to say, that was the last tip those folks will ever get out of my wallet.

We were a party of eight and ignored most of the meal. Our table was shoehorned together between other big parties. There was no passing room to walk between the tables. And my seat was on the end right next to a pillar so I had to sit in an awkward position.

The waiters and waitresses passed in and out the room without even checking on us or bringing us food to eat. We complained three times about being ignored. The facility was unkept. The bathrooms were filthy- stalls unattended, toilet paper and debris all over the floor and trash cans overflowing. And the carpets were dirty and disgusting.

Considering our meal was more than $100/person, I feel this mistreatment was an insult. This was not worth the value. We will not return.

How they have fallen…. About 3 or 4 years ago, this was one of my favorites restaurants. I came here OFTEN, bringing business guests. I loved it.
Sadly, service has fallen considerably! I can no longer recommend it. Servers are inexperienced and standing around rather than seeing if you need anything. Food is slow to be delivered - which is kind of the point. Feels like it’s intentional.
