Such an amazing experience, we love coming to this restaurant, it never fails. Service is amazing and the food is delicious. Drinks are great. Must try the shrimp appetizer and the dry aged tomahawk, those are to die for. And the homemade flan is the best I've ever had. Must try in San Juan.
Will recommend for sure.

This is the best meal I’ve had in the many years in San Juan.
After being seated we were greeted by a host of staff, all very friendly and well trained. Manuel Reyes especially made us feel at home and welcomed us by explaining the dining options and menu selection. It was very helpful having an epicurean guide!
The food quality and taste was second to none. The meats sampled we great with our favorites being the lamb chops, ribeye, filet and beef ribs. All the offering at the buffet were amazing and you must taste them all, very delicious.
The Malbec wine I selected complemented the meats perfectly for my taste.
After dinner, a delicious Flan to finish our wonderful experience.
Although the food was wonderful, it was the people there that made the food magic happen, 5 stars from start to bottom. Must visit when in SJ.

The service at this specific Fogo de Chao was incredible. The meats kept flowing and if we preferred a different temperature, they would go back and get it for us immediately (not like other rodizio places that you have to wait like 10 minutes for the next batch to be cooked and maybe they remembered your request). The manager (Bernice) was on top of her thing, changing tablecloths as customers left and cleaning tables, really expediting the service and making sure the experience for the customer was outstanding. She came by asking if we were pleased and if we were waiting on specific cuts. We were not waiting but requested some cuts and out they came. Truly fantastic time with friends, food and drinks.

Went for dinner at Fogo de Chao which is a Brazilian Churrascaria located on the second floor and gives great views of the sea. They offer a range of different flavoured Caipirinhas, we chose traditional caipirinhas with premium cachaca and lime and it was very delicious.
There is an extensive salad bar with the very freshest and extensive salad items, cheeses, fruits, soup etc. beautifully displayed. As is the case with a churrascaria the servers come round the tables with meats, carved at your table. The servers continue offering you different cuts of meat as long as you keep the green (yes) card showing. The meats are perfectly cooked and the chefs are very polite.
The meats and chicken were of the very highest quality including filet mignon and all perfectly cooked.
There is an extensive wine list and we were told that South American wines were 50% off on Wednesdays, good deal for a future visit, wine list was excellent.
The waiting staff were impeccable and knowledgeable. Overall we were delighted with the experience, the view, the food, the service. Everything was of the highest quality and faultless. This has been the best meal that we have had in San Juan. We wish there were a rating that we could give this restaurant that is better than excellent!

If you are visiting San Juan P.R. you must stop by this restaurant. It got such an amazing view, great ambiance and the best thing is the service. All the staff is amazing and very attentive . They got the best meat cuts. You can enjoy a full experience of trying a considerable variety of different types of steaks over and over again. They will bring the whole smokey meat to your table, and they will slice it right on front of you as you ask it: rare, medium rare, medium or well done, its perfect. All this accompanied by a full experience of fresh vegetables and a variety of sides exposed in a beautiful salad buffet. From vegetables and fresh fruits to rice, soups and all kind of hot compliments. They even have 42 days DRY AGED cuts. Royal!!!! Good coctails also. The house drink is very refreshing and super delicious and they have different flavors, mango was amazing. The dessert are out of this world!!! And the service is impeccable. Enjoy!!!

Went there for dinner last night, and everything was amazing. All the meats are well prepared, you request the temperature you want and the chefs bring by your table just the way you asked. Filet and ribeye are my favorites. Very juicy and well cooked. The drinks were fresh and had lots of flavor, I had the Brazilian Gentleman and it was very good. My wife had a wine suggested by one of the servers and she loved it. The wait staff is very friendly and knowledgeable, they are always watching the tables and don't miss anything. You cannot get a better service in the island for sure. Managers came by our table to make sure we were fine, and they are very polite. It's definitely a spot to visit if you're in San Juan. They are very consistent in what they do, must check it out.

It was my one year anniversary (we stated this when we made the rsvp). The food was mediocre, overpriced, and we didn’t even get a free desert or even a congratulations for our special day. I’d definitely go to a more authentic, hole in the wall restaurant with better food any day! It was not worth the hype.

Everything was amazing top to bottom. From the moment we went in till the moment we left everything was 5 stars. The host was very polite and friendly and sat us shortly to our table, which had an amazing view as requested. The servers were very knowledgeable and polite, and explained everything, we order some appetizer to start and some caipirinhas which were amazing. The sommelier came to our table to suggest some wine and he was very right, amazing cabernet!!! The gauchos were very fast and spot on with the meats. By the way, all the cuts were perfectly done, amazing job they did. The buffet was full of options and very fresh, can't beat that. We ended up getting some desserts at the end, the molten and papaya cream were awesome. To finish it off, a gentleman came with the liquor cart to our table, and offered us some amazing cordials nice touch to finish it off. Overall amazing experience. Dont waste your money going to Texas De Brazil, this is the real deal, authentic Brazilian food, just like in Brazil, a must try in San Juan.

The meat was WAY overdone and under seasoned. This was my first experience and it has ultimately negated all of the positive statements I have heard about the food. The servers were consistent and attentive.
My fiancé wound up not feeling so well 40 minutes into our first bite, so we wound up leaving shortly there after. It wasn’t worth the money spent.

So much fun! The salad buffet is full of delicious and varied offerings, and the treats coming around on the meat skewers are a fun surprise. Our server was both entertaining and efficient. Lots of different foods to try, as well as drinks (caipirinhas!) and decadent desserts. It’s pricey, but a fun splurge, especially if you get a table by the window.

We loved the location, ambience, and the food was great. We were staying at the Caribe Hilton and the restaurant is just a five minute walk from the hotel and right on the water. Went there two nights in a row. First night we sat at the bar and ordered off the appetizer and bar specials and had great cocktails, fast service. incredible food and the absolutely wonderful bartenders We loved it so much we made a reservation for the following night via Open Table. We felt very rushed after seating. Food was excellent but they double charged me for a meal. Said it was an error after I called them on it. We also ordered a Grand Marnier from the drink cart when it came by, and the man tried to pour a Louis XIII cognac at $300 (he appeared chagrined when I corrected him). Two serious expensive errors that I’m not sure was honest, and we both left feeling bad energy there; check your bill carefully.

My friends and I went to Fogo de Chao during restaurant week, and we enjoyed the experience immensely. The food was delicious, the waiters were quick, and the staff was accommodating. My only complaints are how long it took to seat us despite our reservation. One member of the party arrive about 10 minutes late, but then we waited at least another 10 minutes and felt somewhat forgotten. The waitstaff also offered us "still or sparkling" water, neglecting to mention that still would cost $6.75 apiece. Waiters reguarly topped off our glasses and quickly brought a second bottle. We finally cut off the bottles and asked for tap water, which came quickly. Unfortunately, we had to ask for refills ourselves and repeatedly, which was a sharp contrast to the treatment when we were paying for water. I would definitely recommend Fogo de Chao, but ask for what you want!

Very disappointed with the service. We were there last year and the service was top notch. This year, there was only 1 guy who went above and beyond. My son only eats the steak and nothing else, so he prefers they come around quite often, but there were huge gaps of time that no one came around.
