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.

We had such a wonderful evening. The service was fantastic. When we requested a certain type of meat, they immediately brought it. Our server Curtis was exceptional. He went above and beyond to make sure my family was happy. Even the manager came and checked up on us. We felt like VIP. Thank you for making our night such a memorable and delicious one.

The staff, the ambiance and the food made this dining experience memorable. I enjoy the ribs and the rib eye steak. It was cooked and seasoned perfectly. The food was so fresh. The overall experience was superb.

Meat was extremely salty. Rice was very salty. Are they getting salt free? Salad bar was mediocre. Overall bad experience for a $300 dinner. Never again.

First time back since the new addition to our family. Quickly sat, drinks came almost immediately. Excellent service end-to-end. Perfectly prepared meats. Will be back I the future. Alejandra is an asset to this location. She always provides my family and I with world class customer service, and is one of the reasons why we drive past three other locations in order to come to this one. Won’t regret the trip here.

My go-to fine dining establishment. Server Jimmy Romero is always accommodating, attentive, and Johnny-(Jimmy)-on-the-Spot with whatever you need to make your dining experience the best it can be. All servers/employees make it a delight to dine. Thanks Tysons Team!

Our experience was great as usual but this time we had the pleasure of meeting an employee named Mary Jane Murray. She spent time with our family and conversed for awhile. She was very helpful with our young son Roman and her service was exceptional. When we return then we will definitely ask for Mary Jane Murray. She was awesome!!!

This is the 2nd time we've been here & it was another good experience. The service was excellent. For meats, the filet mignon, the sausage & one of the seasoned pork meats were out favorite. We had our meal with a bottle of the Fogo Malbec. It was perfect with the food.

As always, excellent food. My daughter is allergic to many things. This restaurant is one of few ones where she can go. ( not much processed, not spicy, not over dressed with sauces) Veggies so i can taste the genuine flavor of each ingredient. Keep up the great work!

The quality of the food was wonderful however it was a bit disappointing. 1st the table we were sat at was dirty. stained tablecloth. after 15 minutes or so, after the market bar, we were asked to move to another table to accommodate a group next to us that had extra folks. we were offered a 2nd round of drinks but when we expressed not wanting to have another round we were not offered perhaps dessert or a discount on our meal. The food came fast and furious. It was delicious however it made us feel rushed. also the potatoes and plantains were cold. Overall for the $ of the meal I would likely pass up a chance to return. My expectations were not met

The Tysons Fogo was very good food (I probably would've been fine with just the salad bar) and the service was exceptional.

I like very rare meat, and they went and got some for me especially. They even decorated our dessert plate for a special occasion.

The waitress, Kimberly was the worst waitress I have ever had in my life! Two in our party had health restrictions preventing them from getting the full experience and when we ordered she immediately got upset and ignored us for the rest of the time. Never brought anyone plates. She only came and asked the individual that got the full experience if they needed anything. She acted like the people physically were not present at the table and did not exist that did not get the full experience. Then she came and literally threw the check down with her back turned while ignoring the person paying. Incredibly insulting and dehumanising experience for having health issues and made everyone feel bad and ruined our experience! We spoke to the manager who apologised about her behaviour, but did nothing. We will never come back, the food was good but certainly not worth being treated this way! The one in DC is much better in terms of service. If you come here make sure you do NOT get Kimberly if you want to be treated like a human being.

I dine at Fogo de Chao in Tyson’s for several times now. This time, most of the meat was dry and we didn’t enjoy the food. It was embarrassing that I recommended this place to my friend and told her how good the food was and we both decided to leave early because it was terrible and did not enjoy it at all. Very disappointed.

We went on Monday at 6. The restaurant is beautiful. The servers are incredible. All of the food was very good. There were a couple of dry pieces of meat but overall everything we had was moist and flavorful. The ribs are outstanding. By far the best on the menu. Its been years since we went to Fogo always beacuse of the amount of food and I feel that I should be indulging more. I will try the menu next time when I come with a group. The top shelf caipirinha is perfect.

We had the worst service. We were never offered the shrimp appetizer. I only knew about it when it was offered to the table next to us. So I essentially ordered it for dessert at the end of the meal because that's when we became aware of it. My parents wanted salmon. I was told by 2 servers that it wasn't available rather than the fact that it's available a la carte. So I ordered 2 of those half way through the meal after explaining to the server that I knew that "a la carte" meant it wasn't included in the buffet and that I'd have to pay extra for it. It literally took 30 min to get refills on drinks. I've been to other Fogos and to this one in particular twice before. This time is was just an awful experience. Dr. Dima

I love the food here and its a fun experience, but the service was atrocious. First, they didn't get take our drink order until we requested to order drinks. My wife's drink was way too potent and my drink was all ice and limes, maybe two sips. Then they disappeared after we got our salads - we had to flag someone down for bread. Ultimately, we had to take placecards off another table so the servers would bring us food. We literally did not see our waitress for over an hour. We were asking other servers for help. Then we had to ask for the dessert menu. No one said "sorry" or offered an explanation. It was real bad.

Fogo has definitely gone down in quality and service. The meats were either extremely well done or extremely rare. Chima steakhouse next door is a better option - especially with paying the hefty price. The salad bar was good and they definitely offer a great variety of veggies and cheeses but not $60 worth.
