First of all the receptionist was not the best which was actually a reflection of the whole experience
Food quality was poor. Selection was limited
Looks like they are pushing for the salad bar
Meat was hard and the rounds were very spaced
Will not recommend or go again to this location
It was great. Would definitely go again. Great place for a date night
Always a great experience with yummy food! Obviously, the meat selection is on point, but I also love the salad bar too.
Food was excellent just a little noisy due to a birthday party which was next to us and our server was more focused on the bigger party but over all 4/5 stars
The service was so beyond atrocious. Our waiter introduced himself when we sat down, and then never spoke to us again for the rest of the night. We both asked for waters that we didn’t receive until the end of the meal, when we asked a different waiter instead (we were so incredibly thirsty by then, and losing our appetite quickly). I had also ordered a cocktail that never arrived, but still showed up on the original bill (brought over by another waitress). The service was pure chaos, as our actual waiter spent most of our meal hiding behind a pole and bizarrely peeking at another table.
Perhaps the biggest tragedy was that the food was incredible, but our date night was marred by this horrendous experience with the service. A meal that should have lasted an hour lasted nearly three hours. We would probably visit another Fogo de Chao, but would never come to this one again.
The waiter was attendance at first then took 40 mins to bring out one wine and one non alcoholic drink. Once desert came I felt the need to rush out cause I didn’t know if he was going to be around.
Don't bother if you don't eat meat. But, if you do, make a reservation. Salads are numerous and high quality with everything imaginable on the salad bar. The meats are exceptional. Prices are reasonable if you can eat a lot but even if you don't eat like a pig this is a very lovely restaurant with excellent service.
Meets are NOT distributed fairly/evenly. My son sat and watched with Yes side up as meat servers went to adjacent tables time and time again. Specifically lamb chops kept going to same 2 or 3 tables. One guy was served and ate 6 lamb chops with zero coming even near our table. Yes 6 lamb chops!! And this even after telling our server wanted lamb chops next time out. We waited and eventually departed without ever receiving
We are very sorry to hear about this visit, as you and your son should have received consistent cuts. We will be speaking with our team to ensure your next experience meets your every expectation. Thank you.
We have been to other Fogo locations but this was our first visit to Tyson’s. The food is always excellent and the variety of sides was diverse. The meat is divine and the service was beyond compare. We will definitely come again!!
My husband 50th birthday
Thank you so much for celebrating with us! We greatly appreciate the review!
Great service and quality of food and cocktails were great
On a very special occasion which was my father’s 80th bday we decided to make it special. Ambience is excellent and decor impressive. From there it quickly went downhill. It was very early in the evening around 4pm with not many diners but yet our waitress barely acknowledged our presence with us having to frequently ask for attention. She was yawning in the background and leaning against walls. Very ambivalent customer service attitude. Three entrees were over an hour late into service with most of us finished with the meat servings and only after my wife alerted them did she barely acknowledge the issue with no explanation. Nor did a manager come to explain or either apologize. Only saving grace was a fellow waiter named Tariq who was awesome. Very attentive, pleasant mannered, and totally made up for the lacking of service. He was the one who actually explained the issue and made sure we weren’t charged for the error. Watch out as the more pricier meat servings never rotate often as the cheaper meats. The plates were never cleared to the very end and overall terrible and frustrating with the lack of attention. Much better dining experiences in the NoVa area to go to.
Your feedback is valued, Jacky, and please know that we apologize for such an experience Our team will be reviewing this and working hard to ensure your next visit is top-notch. Best.
Experienced Fogo de Chao for the first time with my boyfriend for his birthday. It was very nice, loved the ambience. The experience overall was well. We’ve been to other Brazilian Steakhouses & have been pleased so we finally wanted to give here a try! Our server was efficient & friendly! They came around often with some of the options of meat. We had our “cards” flipped to green while we were there for about an hour & a half & unfortunately were never offered the lamb chops though (which we were really looking forward to, since we’ve heard great things about them). Also, some of the cuts of meat were over salted, almost in-edible honestly. But we still enjoyed ourselves. We may give it a try again & try requesting the lamb chops specifically at some point (if that’s something you’re able to do). If you’ve never been, it’s definitely worth a try for the experience!
I love going Fogo de Chao! The meats are always to perfection and I don't know what it is about their potato salad but it's the best.
Overall very accommodating for my party, food was flavorful however my guest complained that although the table had their cards flipped to green, the servers didn’t come around as often as they would have liked which had them questioning the value for the price.
But i would still recommend Fogo de Chao to family and friends.
Made my dads birthday very special. Our server was the manager who also worked in D.C and he really made sure all of us were well taken care of. During check out they made sure my dad selected his complimentary cake, which was very kind since we did not know they had that option.
Thank you for this feedback, Roha! We are thrilled to hear your visit was so fantastic. We can't wait to have you back in. Cheers!
It was my wife’s birthday. TJ did a upstanding job!
Went for New Years and had a good experience. The service was a little slow. Will go back again
Meat was over cooked or over seasoned. Not all the menu items were being offered. It took a while to receive service.
We always want our cuts to be seasoned and cooked to your satisfaction, and we apologize for letting you down. We hope you will not allow this to keep you away, as we would love another chance to earn your satisfaction.
I called to inform the host that I was running a little late for my reservation.
We were sat shortly after we checked in for our reservation. We sat and wait at our table for over 10 minutes before our server realized we had been waiting. It took 15 minutes for our waters to be delivered and another 10 for our actual drinks. I noticed that a few of the guests that came in after us received prompt service and was eating before we even got our waters.
Our server never came back to the table to see if we needed anything, in which we did. I had to flag another server down for assistance.
Our reservation was reserved for 2:15pm and it wasn’t very busy so I’m not sure why we received the service that we did. It definitely ruined our special occasion.
It’s unfortunate that I had to leave this review because out of the numerous times I’ve been to FoGo de Chao, this was by far the worst it’s ever been.
We cherish your continued business and truly apologize for falling short of your satisfaction this time around. Our team strives to ensure that our guests enjoy every aspect of their visits, so we will review this information carefully. We hope you'll consider returning.
The food was great. The service was terrible. I don’t even know what to say about the service.. JUST GO TO THE DC LOCATION!!
Regardless of which location you visit, our teams strive to deliver attentive and incredible service, and it troubles us to read your remarks. We will review your feedback with our team and make every effort to ensure your next visit is worthy of five stars.
Great food and service. It’s expensive, but you get what you pay for.
Husbands 40th birthday
I’m not sure what was happening but no meats were circulating for a good 20-30mins. Then, only one server would come out with meat at a time (rare to medium temp only so makes you think maybe they were rushing the cooking due to short staff?). Eventually it increased but by then an hour had gone by and your desire to want to eat was gone. It was very disappointing for it to be Christmas Day, paying that much, and your food service was trash. We normally have a great time here, maybe it was just an off day. It’ll be a while before we return.
We're very sorry your experience wasn't in line with your expectations. It's important to us that our guests enjoy their visits, so we appreciate you bringing your concerns to our attention. We will be sure to review this with our team.
The food was delicious, the waiters and waitresses were accommodating, and the ambience was excellent. We look forward to returning in the future.
Unforgettable birthday dinner @ Fogo de Chao. You need to eat meat quickly before it gets cold. Pumpkin soup is the best. Desert is complimentary for birthday person. There is a wide selection of desserts.
better than expected .. the food was excellent and professional
Lots of food, very attentive service, some interesting meats
Been to several Fogo de Chao’s and this was an atypical experience. The service was very bad. Our drink orders were incorrect, we were not offered water, our server came by twice during the entire meal. We intimately had to ask a different server for another drink and water refills.
I’ll definitely go back to Fogo because it’s a really great value and is delicious but I will not be going back to the Tyson’s location.
Our team is saddened to read of your disappointment. We work hard to offer five-star experiences, so we will be sure to review this carefully. It's our sincere hope that you'll give us another chance to fully impress you. Thank you.
Everything we ate was over-cooked and dried out. Literally everything that was brought by the table. Even the sides were cold…. I would not go back again (we have always had a great experience at Chima and we thought we’d give FdC a try after a long respite).
We don't take your disappointment lightly, as the satisfaction of our guests means everything to us. Please consider returning, as we would love to have another opportunity to provide you with the unique experience Fogo de Chão is known for. Kind Regards.
It took us 20 min to check in as no one was at the front counter. The table wasn’t set appropriately as we were missing tongs for 3 of the 5 settings. The food was mediocre at best…salad bar was missing many items as they continued to run short on food. We ordered dessert and it took 35 minutes just to receive the dessert. Long breaks in between meat servings. Very loud in the restaurant. For $400.00 for 5 people it was a bit disappointing. We will definitely not return.
We are disappointed to hear about your experience. It is our goal to always exceed the expectations of our guests and we are sorry that we failed you. We want to make this right, so when you are ready, please join us again so that we can give you the experience you deserve. Kind regards.
My girlfriend and I had a lovely late lunch at Fogo de Chao, Tyson's location. It was everything I expected! Great atmosphere, great food, and outstanding service. I especially want to thank Natalie for taking such great care of us. She was awesome, and really exemplified what customer service is all about. We really appreciated her! Thank you Natalie for making our dining experience!
Staff was super friendly and helpful. We went during the holiday season and they were having a (corporate?) private event. Everything was good until they needed to open the partition wall, it got noisy after that. We asked to move tables away from the noise and F de C staff was happy to accommodate; no fuss.
Our first time at FdC and all four of us were delighted—our elderly mom, our teenage son, my picky-eater husband and foodie me. Our waitress went out of her way to accommodate our various needs. We’re definitely going back for the next family celebration! Keep up the outstanding food, good value, great service.
Outstanding across the board…. Food, atmosphere, and service…. All OUTSTANDING !!
We did not receive very great service, but the food was phenomenal. I would’ve liked a better experience overall though, especially because we were there for my Dad’s birthday.
Although you received phenomenal food, we're sorry the service wasn't on the same level. We will review this carefully and work hard to ensure that your next visit is excellent in every way. Thank you for your feedback.
Service was slow and had to ask for things multiple times.
We go here every year for my team's holiday luncheon, and this is the first time I can say we ere disappointed. The service was outstanding and the taste of the food was excellent. However we were told the $40 full experience included 16 different meats. Well, we actually saw the same three or four meats over and over again. In past years, there was a constant stream of meat being brought to the table. This time there was sometimes a 10 or 15 minute wait to get anything.
Mike, while we are happy to hear that you received excellent service and that you enjoyed the food, we are disappointed to hear that you were not able to try all of the meats. We hope that you will give us another chance in the future to earn your full satisfaction. Thank you.
Casual event with former colleague first time visit. The atmosphere was absolutely fantastic. The service staff was very attentive and responsive to our requests. The lunch experience was idea and food selection, as always, was outstanding. Will definitely visit again.
