I wouldn’t recommend going here for the salad bar dining experience as it hardly rates paying $30.00 for a salad bar. The feijoada was overly salted and inedible. No seafood or fruits with the exception of pineapple. For someone who enjoys drinking coke, they charge for every serving without first telling you. It’s a very nice dining room but it was extremely noisy. Parking is $5 to the valet which I suppose is reasonable but parking used to be free. The Pao de queso was passable. I wouldn’t return.

First time eating at one of these after hearing about it for so long, and came away quite disappointed. The service was glacial except for a brief burst in mid meal - on a night it was maybe 2/3 full- and our server disappeared when we stopped taking additional meat, forcing us to flag down a manager to get our check. The meat itself was inconsistent; some quite flavorful and tender, some very fatty and close to inedible. Even by DC standards it is pricey. You can do far better for the money.

Celebrated spouses birthday on July 9. Overall it was great. Our initial waitress wasn’t good. She didn’t take our drink orders and took awhile to return to our table. Another came by and made everything great! She gave us small plates for our appetizers and ordered a special birthday dessert for the birthday girl. She was great!

While the service was great and the food was good, the value did not match the amount of the bill. I believe I would have seen better value going to a regular steakhouse. Probably won't return for that reason.

Might I say Beef ribs? The service was terrible. I have been at this location before so I know its big and busy. So when we ordered I told every server my only 2 requests Beef ribs and medium rare lamb crops. Well after 50 minutes finally the gaucho brings lamb chops which you guessed it were cooked well done. 1 hour to get 2 slices of beef rib. And by2 slices thats it tqo pieces that were inch wide and 1/4 inch thick by maybe 3 in long. So for $59 I got a salad over down lamb chop and the magnanimous 2 slices of beef rib. When I repeatedly asked the staff were rude and said "They take a long time to cook" it was 6pm at night I think they had time to prep for dinner. So with a $15 shot of Crown Royal and our whopping bill of $155 with tip I'd call this an epic failure.

Chicken was as dry as sand and none of the meats were juicy or tasty. Sad about that as I heard good things. Nowhere near the same amount of food as Texas de Brazil. Not even close and people flocked into this place like it was food Mecca. Good thing I had good company because I drove all the way from Richmond There won’t be a second chance

I’ll start with the one thing I believe needs improvement, we sat outside by choice, only a table of 2, and asked for lamb. We were offered several meats when we flipped our cards but it took almost our entire night sitting and telling 3 ppl that we wanted lamb, one lady waiter finally contacted the manager and all to ensure we got our lamb, the one meat we requested. The lamb was delicious when it came. We tried a couple of the meats and they were all pretty good, just wish the one we requested came faster. Nice ambience and staff, overall nice place. Only place with a open reservation on fathers day, too, which was great.

On this day, for many people this was a joyful occasion. Father’s Day. The food was excellent. But for 4 people and a $300 dollars later, I wanted the experience they couldn’t deliver. I barely had any meat because they didn’t come around a lot. So I felt I had to eat a big plate of the buffet. The staff was nice.

The food was a bit pricey. I would have like if the Waitress sang Happy Bday or acknowledged that there was a birthday at the table since I did put that as a special occasion when I made reservations. I only saw our waitress twice and had several other patient waiters and waitresses so I hope the tip was spread to everyone and not just our original waitress.

Was a disappointing visit. Started out waiting twenty minutes for my glass of wine while those around me who ordered full bottles were served. Then it seemed when folks did notice our table-- the offerings were all well done (my son and I prefer medium rare). Servers would all say they'd be back... but never were. I was asked what we might specifically like-- provided the info but no one came back. Not what I'd remembered pre-pandemic....

You get what you expect at Fogo, and that’s why we keep coming back. Food was incredible as always. Meat service becomes overwhelming if you don’t quickly switch your call card to red (stop), the wine prices were reasonable and wine was delicious. This will continue to be a place we go as a family of minor and major celebrations.

I’ve been several time to Fogo de Chao, to Penn location and Tysons Corner. The quality of the meat was not good as it used to be and there were not many cuts, I’ve always ordered the brazilian lemonade, but this time the lemonade was completely bitter, our server was so nice, she asked the bartender to fix it but it was too sweet then. I don’t know what happened, were very disappointed and we said we don’t we are going to come back, is just not worth it anymore. Most of our reservationss have been made through Opentable m, if not by phone. Thanks.
