Brazilian Steakhouse
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 simply 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 Bar, 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.

Food was excellent, good variety and great service. People were friendly and stopped by often to see if we needed anything. Restaurant is beautiful, tall ceilings help to moderate the noise level.

Some of the best service we’ve ever experienced. The staff were so incredibly helpful, fast, and friendly — it really made the experience feel special. The fact that the food was equally incredible didn’t hurt. All the steak cuts were cooked perfectly and packed an insane amount of flavor. Highly recommend.

Good food. I like the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. All the different steaks and lamb chops were very good. The wine was also good for the price. Everyone was very satisfied with the quality of the food. Service was considerate, prompt and friendly, wines were affordable."

Food was super salty. Waiter forgot to bring beer that was ordered. Not much selection in meats and despite having “green” on coasters, we were repeatedly skipped. We will not return.

Food was good. Service on Saturday evening a bit slow. It shouldn’t take 45 minutes from ordering dessert to getting it.

Experience is good as usual the only thing I do not like about this location is the pushing of a la carte items. This makes for an uncomfortable business experience having to explain to staff these items are not part of the meal as the servers do not mention this.

Service was ok. Food was ok. Drink was ok.

Went for their restaurant month special. I believe it was a great deal. But don’t think I would return.

Everything was ok but not great, when I go to a restaurant of this caliber and this price tag my expectations are higher.

Beautiful restaurant with excellent steak. It's not a place to come for other kinds of meat like chicken, but they have it and it is hit or miss. The salad bar area isn't as big or nice as Chima (another similar restaurant nearby). Service was good but not the best. Other tables that came after us were serviced before us.

Anniversary dinner. First waiter was great halfway thru meal we got a new waiter. They seemed to forget about us. Some of the meats were overlooked and dry. Never got the special surprise we were promised by first waiter. Overall would not recommend. Real disappointing.

We LOVE Fogo de Chao. We decided to celebrate two birthdays at Fogo. Everything was perfect, the ambiance, the food, the service. As an appetizer we enjoyed the grilled lobster and shrimp, it was our first time having it, it was cooked perfectly! Our server was Victoria, she was so helpful and professional. We asked for special cocktails that were not on the menu and she agreed to make them. Thank you for a great experience!

Fantastic dinner last night. Bryan and his team provided top notch service during our meal. All different cuts of meat arrived at the table all cooked to perfection. When I was fully satisfied and thought I could not eat another bite lamb steak and lamb ribs arrived. They were exquisite.

The servers bringing meat were wonderful when they visited our table. Unfortunately, we were seated far away from the center area and were accidentally ignored. Our wait staff, on the other hand, were not very attentive, forgot our drinks, and although stated that they'd ask the servers to come to our table, did not follow up. The DC location may be a better experience.

Took a good 15 mins o get first meat. Nobody else comes until the server asked how everything was. Informed the server that nobody is coming to the table. Waited another 15 mins. Lost my appetite from waiting. Would not recommend it here. DC service is much better.

I’m disappointed with my experience at the Tyson’s location. I had been to the DC location twice and enjoyed it. First, I ordered a glass of champagne rose, not available. I ordered a glass of rose, not available. Even though both are on the menu. The server said “ we don’t have any rose” !! . I gave 3 stars because the salad bar is decent, as far as varieties and freshness. The meat is 2 stars. It’s tasteless and they don’t have medium rare . When I asked for medium rare, it’s either rare or medium. I don’t think it’s worth $55 as far as value. I’d rather go to Capital Grill, and order a $60 steak, and finish the whole thing. I used to recommend fogo over Texas de Brazil, but now I’m not sure anymore

Our server forgot to give us the special tokens since we had the restaurant week menu so for 15 minutes we were not given any meat. Then she forgot to give my friend a glass for her wine so one of the meat servers had to get it for her. The service was slow. This isn’t the first time I’ve been there but it was the first time for one of my friends and it didn’t leave a good impression.

I know it was restaurant week so they tend to serve people less food, but we only had 3 guys pass by our table with food. Very disappointed. I will be going to Chima next time.

We very much enjoyed our visit. We loved the decor and the outstanding meal. Each cut of meat had flavor and it was a different flavor for each, I am told. I am a vegetarian and yet I found plenty of wonderful options. Loved the fresh asparagus, tomatoes, and salads. The ambience was very pleasant. The service was superior. We were catered to and made to feel special. It was my husband's birthday and we were pleased to have had a delicious cheescake to with a candle as the "topping on the cake". Very enjoyable and certainly memorable.
