We really enjoyed the food and the service provided. It was very busy and too crowded. The waitress was carry to many plates that can hurt her back. Many people walking fast for pickup trays or serving the meats. Its not a relaxing place.

Haven’t been here in awhile, and the full experience isn’t what it once was. The cheese puffs, huge air pockets and all the cheese sank to the the bottom. The cuts of meat brought out are extremely limited. We already had top sirloin but that seemed to be the best cut they were bringing around, were offered it at least 5 times. We were asked if everything was good but I mentioned they weren’t bringing out any pork, lamb, filet, prime top. They brought some of those around once. The pork and lamb chops were actually really good, but overall, need more medium rare choices for what they were offering beef-wise. Lastly, bacon wrapped steak, not a fan, was cooked well done.

Value for the price point needs to be adjusted.

I always go with my family to Fogo de chao, but this time was not pleasant. Restaurant bathroom dirty, not well maintained.
Waiters don’t understand what we order, and don’t have knowledge of the full menu. If you work in a “niche” place, you should understand the basic words and food. Order Brazilian lemonade, and waiter brings a juice with pineapple and mint. Today the food was also flavorless. Steaks, black beans with no salt at all. Definitely will take some time before going back there.

First it was my girlfriend and I birthday yesterday. She’s been there before but I have not. We were seated. The food was terrible. The rice was hard. We ordered the variety meats out of 8 we only received 3 my friend only had one piece of chicken because the meats were cold with no flavoring. I made eye contact with five servers and they continued to walk passed us. We had the green tabs upright and visible! No one asked us if we needed anything we only seen our server once just for our soda. She never returned. It was not crowded at all so service should’ve been superb for the amount of money we spent. This was very sad especially for my birthday and my experience. But I ended the night with pizza near by but my party did not come to seat at a table to have half cooked mashed potatoes.

I enjoyed the restaurant’s food, wine 🍷 and staff. Areas of improvement are ambience (consider having a light sound of Brazilian must), I have the primary dinner that featured various meats to taste, I prefer beef 🥩 and we did not have enough options to eat beef.

All the 🥩 were tender and juicy! I just don’t understand why there’s no seasoning (or even salt at all) - that’s not how gauchos / Brazilians do.
Service was bad. They were too fast. We couldn’t let our hands out of the glasses that they would very abruptly pour more drink and ask if we wanted more. The servers with the meat were not careful, we had several drops in our clothes.
And it is VERY expensive. So 3/5 stars.

My first time back since the pandemic was declared, so it's been a while. When I made the reservation on Monday, the price for dinner per person online was $60: By Tuesday, it jumped to $61.95, which I think is worth a mention. The food and the service aren't what they used to be. The market table lacked selection and many diners went up without masks on. The hand sanitizer dispenser near the market table was empty. I had to ask several times for the cuts of meat I wanted because I was tired of seeing a rotation of lower-priced meats. The next time I want a steak dinner, I would just go to a traditional steak house and get a nice ribeye or tenderloin for comparable price.

The server we had was exterely miserable. It was my friends birthday that is why we went and I told the server, she basically threw his desert in front of him, said Happy Birthday real quick amd threw us out! Also for almost $70 a person, we did not get a quarter of the meats listed on the menu that they say you are going to get to try. In fact we received the same meats over and over. Never got to try the lamb chops which my friend was looking forward to trying. We asked several times to try and was told don't worry they will come over to you. I was very disappointed with the whole experience.

Server didn't know the answer to any questions we had. Given the current status of this country I was understanding of that. We were sat in the back room and barely had anybody come to our table there was a woman walking around asking if we wanted anything else but nobody knew the table numbers so every time she kept asking someone to come our way with food they would go to the surrounding tables and not directly to us we had to constantly wave people down to try to get something to eat until we got frustrated and just gave up. The food that we did have was OK not as good as it used to be. Walking around trying to upsell things was slightly annoying. Eventually we gave in and agreed to the "Brazilian rum" it basically tasted like Jose Cuervo tequila with a little bit of spice in it it was absolutely disgusting. The King of Prussia location is slightly better but still not worth the price.

My girls love Fogo de Chao and this was our 3-4th time going over the last 5 months. The issue this time is we were seated in the back, the restaurant hosted the Temple football team and very much neglected our table. Nobody stopped by to offer us meats. Time and time again, the gauchos walked right past us (and other tables) to go to the back room. Only after I said something did they finally start to serve our table again. But before that the manager came over and tried to blame us for having our card on red which we only turned over as we were going to pay and leave. So this was just wrong.

I am generally a fan, but will second guess whether we go back...which is sad as my daughters really enjoyed it and we were there to celebrate my daughters birthday.

It was okay. Had to let them know to bring the meats often. They put us party of 7 in the corner and kind of forgot about us. Luckily we order extra entrees. Drink wasn’t replenished as often . Plates were not cleared off the table as needed. Honestly the experience could have been wait better with the amount of money we spent!! Not sure if I’m coming back anytime soon.

Ordered two dirty martinis, waited 20 minutes for them to come out. When they finally did, they weren’t even dirty martinis. So we sent them back. They came back wrong the second time, tasting like vodka and soda with a splash of olive juice. The third time around we finally got our correct drinks. We were already done dinner by the time we had our first drink. It was sub par service, but the food was really good.
