Felt rushed, was never asked asked about allergies but offered two things my boyfriend is allergic to. Given the wrong drink twice, and took a long time to receive corrections. Very pushy staff.

Unfortunately, there were kids running around everywhere and trying to unlock the restrooms while I was in there. Their parents were walking around posing for pictures without masks while the staff was trying to navigate around them in order to serve the other customers. Terrible experience.

Food was great, not inexpensive but getting all you can eat lamb and ribeye for lunch? What an indulgence! We took it easy this time because it was a first date but I can’t wait to go back and really do it right ! (Wine!)

Great food. Excellent service. I would have preferred the restaurant be set up to be a bit more socially distanced as I found it more crowded than what I was comfortable with but otherwise very good experience.

Service was phenomenal, everyone was very attentive to us. The ambiance was great, noise was a little higher than I imagined but it may be because it was a busy evening. Food was okay for cost of meal, steak cuts are only lightly seasoned, most other meats are seasoned thoroughly. A few times though I was asked what temperature I wanted my meat (medium, rare, well done etc) I would receive just whatever was left instead of what I requested. That’s okay at times but I find well done steak to be sometimes inedible so I wasted those pieces.

I’d definitely come again for a very special occasion in a year or two, but likely won’t frequently come back.

Do you want Fogo to chow across from the Trump Hotel is a fantastic experience. Gillson the manager is a wonderful host. He was very attentive and spent time chatting with us and talking about Brazil and all the different foods. Of course, Fogo De Chao. very top of the Brazilian steakhouse dining experiences. The food was amazing the service was excellent everyone had a great time! Stop in and say hi to Gillson and the team if you’re looking for great food and a great dining experience!

Went here for Valentine’s Day. The place was literally packed to the brim. There was no space to even wait. We had a reservation for 9:00 but were seated at 9:50. Why let us make reservations when they seat us as they please? The whole time we had no place to sit since the room was PACKED and there were at least 3 different people without masks. They even spoke to the host without their mask!!! This is NOT OK. Not ok to do to your customers and NOT OK TO DO TO YOUR STAFF!!! They are people!!!! The market table also had instructions to put on gloves but some people took it as an option and used the market table without gloves. The service was bad too but I don’t blame the server considering he was taking care of maybe 18 tables at the same time in just that room. The tables were maybe 2 feet apart so we were massless, eating and talking, 2 feet from other diners. I honestly had the worst time since the place was so crowded and this ruined my Valentine’s Day completely. We usually go to fogo at tysons for almost every “special event” but decided to try dc for Valentine’s and that is a regret.

What an awesome experience We had at Fogo De chao Washington! All the way since we walked in until the end! The staff was super super super unreal and friendly! All the way from the host to the waiters and management. There’s three people that i’d love to tilt my Sombrero for and those threw folks are Maeve, Edgar Rivera & Armando (manager) They introduce themselves and were super tentative and kind. I’d recommend this place and would definitely come back because of them three.
