The bar and different meats are always delicious!
Fogo still hold their badge as top tier restaurant with great foods. Hands down holding its rank as one of the best! Those new places are hip and cute but does not stand a chance when it comes to service and food taste and quality!
Fabulous food and service !
Although a bit pricey, it was worth every penny. By far, the best Brazilian steakhouse experience we had. None of the meat selections was disappointing. Highlights were the lamb, filet, and ribeye. There are also so many items on the sides/appetizer bar, that you really can enjoy a wealth of flavors and textures. Completely excellent from start to finish!
Me and my wife were celebrating our first anniversary and it was a wonderful experience. Everyone was so kind and very interactive with the customer.
Took my wife for a Bday celebration. She had a great time . The meats kept coming all fresh and even well doe just for her. The lamb chops were delicious.
I love this place and the food. Unfortunately on this visit everyone at my table got sick that night and the next couple days after. I called the manager and he was very understanding and accommodating. He even refunded me and I asked him to please keep the tip for the waitress.
My only concern was with the other patrons who didn’t adhere to the mask mandate when going to the buffet booth. I will be back soon.
I enjoyed the enormous salad bar with so many other items on it. Very nice selection.
All in all, we enjoyed this place a lot. My wife wanted steak and this seemed like fun. I got a same day reservation, but when we got there right on time, we still had to wait 25 minutes to be seated. You start out at the lavish salad bar, which in itself was a treat. I tried not to fill up on veggies as we were there for MEAT, but I was sorely tempted. I ended up with tomato and mozzarella, blanched asparagus, and assorted peppers. I wish I had tried the black beans, but, another time. The servers come to your table with huge skewers of beef, pork, lamb and chicken which you can have served or not. I have to say that the beef outshone the pork ribs or the lamb, which we both found to be very greasy and not as flavorful. Beef was definitely the star. We tried the house special beef, which I believe was ribeye, the filet minion, and sirloin, all of which were perfection. There were many other choices, but did I mention we were there for steak? We will have to try again very soon.
Great! Very fine restaurant.
I been there before but this time I wasn't impressed with the Service or the food. I had to ask so many times to try some of the meat and I just get tired of asking the Service was ok.
Our team is saddened that you weren't impressed with your recent visit. We will be sure to address these concerns, and we look forward to ensuring that future visits are excellent in every way.
An uncomfortable experience.
On Sunday, Oct 10, 2021, a friend of mine who lives in DC invited us for Lunch at Fogo De Chao. The appointment was at 2:00 pm. We arrived at 1:40 PM approximately. The server located a table for us provided the menu and a courtesy plate with 4 small pastry items. Between 5-10 after seated she arrived at to table and asked for the menu, she said sorry I gave the lunch menu but we are serving dinner right now (1:55 PM), and it implied a rise in the cost of about $25 dollars more than lunch regular price. We were so mad with her behavior, that we stood, thanked her for the lack of courtesy, and left the rest. It was so obvious that we were the only Hispanics in the dining room.
We were visiting DC for a weekend short trip. The only bad experience in the City. Was sad to see the disappointed face on the friend who invited us and has the place as one of its favorites. For me "a small sample will suffice", this motivated me to share the experience with reviews readers.
P.S. I provide my Open Table confirmation number, 1000051595.

If you are alone in DC and still want to eat meat this is truly an alone people friendly restaurant.
Thank you for this recommendation, Juan! We truly appreciate your kind words and support. We look forward to serving you again!
The service was incredible, the food was great, but the noise level was way too high to talk easily.
The food was DELICIOUS. The service was AMAZING. I have been to many restaurants and none of my experiences come close to the 5 star service at this location. I DEFINITELY RECOMMEND!! Worth every dollar.
Excellent food an service. Totally recommended. Reasonable prices.
Celebrating my wife’s birthday and this location undoubtedly exceeded our expectations! 10/10
Servers were very friendly and hospitable. Meat selections tasty and flavorful. Thank you for being open during these covid days. Much appreciated for all the hard work that goes unseen. We will be back.
Dinning price starts at 3:15pm!!
We apologize for any inconvenience, as we always want to accommodate our guests to the best of our abilities. Please give us another try, as we'd love the opportunity to earn your trust and support. Thank you.
Pretty good food for the value. Good ambiance and service.
You can never go wrong with Fogo- great value and something for everyone!
Have been going to Fogo for years. I guess because of the pandemic they are short on staff. I had to ask 3 times for them to bring filet mignon by our table. Just not up to the normal standards of service they used to provide.
Attentive service is what you deserve, Markie, so we apologize for delivering anything less. Please visit us again, as we will be sure to make this right.
This restaurant NEVER disappoints when it comes to taste, quality, and appearance of the food, which is probably why the restaurant was crowded. I mean it was so full, they had to be at their maximum capacity. I truly hope nobody in there had covid19 because one person could have easily infected dozens of people.
Had a good time, place was packed and I was worried about self-serve at the salad bar, but they had Purell. Service was not as good as usual. Took a long time to get drinks and waited over 20 minutes for the check. Was very crowded. Also took a while to get some of the meats. Service was not as good as usual, but still a good choice.
Excellent food and service! Wonderful experience leading to a self-induced food coma. Love everything about this restaurant. Valet car parking is a great amenity.
I enjoyed the Overall Experience. This wasn't just good food but an Outstanding Experience. Thanks to the Outstanding Staff - Great Job Staff. Sending my love and appreciation for providing the wonderful atmosphere for my son's birthday.
It was a pleasant experience
Fantastic food and Service. The waitress was very attentive and very good customer service. she made our visit very remarkable. Fantastic place to eat. My husband took me there for my birthday and I loved the experience.
Everything was wonderful, but the grilled cheese! The grilled pineapple! And the pineapple mint lemonade! All so good! The market table and the full churrasco experience I was awesome. We will be back!
We made 7:15pm reservations for my daughter’s birthday. The hostess informed us there would be a 15-20 minute wait for our table because they accepted 900 reservations that day. We waited 50 minutes to be seated. The restaurant was extremely crowded and tables were very closely placed. Staff was extremely busy and it took a long time to be served with our dessert or check. We would not attend again.
Sabrina, we should always be respecting your reservation time, so we apologize for the wait you experienced. We always want our guests to leave satisfied, so please know that we value your feedback. We hope to welcome you back and work to better meet your expectations.
It was awesome. Though lots of people.
Fatime was an EXCELLENT manager. The staff were hospitable. The food at Fogo is always amazing, especially the Filet mignon. My friend and I also loved the grilled cheese special. That honey sauce is delicious! Will absolutely come here again!
My husband and I enjoyed ourselves so much last night. So much so that we are returning for brunch.
Enjoyed every bit of our time there and the waiters and managers were always making sure you were enjoying your time!!! My only complain is that the food was so good I over ate. I can’t wait for next time!
terrible quality of meat
Our team is committed to delivering high-quality dining experiences, with flavorful cuts and side dishes, so it's disappointing to hear we fell short. We hope you choose to return, so we can provide you with a visit that's terrific in every way. Thank you.
Our service was the best! The food was great, plenty of options, always fresh out of the kitchen! One of the best Brazilian steak houses I have been to on the east coast!
