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.

We had to change out reseravtion from 5:30pm in Tysons and was able to fet a reservation at 8pm in DC. It was really surprising that they had reservations and we were grateful.
The food was great, the vibe was high and we had a really good time.

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.

I was trying to get a bit more romance that what we received on Valentine’s Day. Asked to upgrade packages before my reservation, confirmed the upgrade ahead of the reservation, and was still not recognized upon arrival (had to ask the waiter after being seated).

We were a group of four couples. 3 of the 4 husbands had birthdays on top of it being Valentine’s Day weekend. The service was excellent. The wait staff was polite and professional and also had a sense of humor. I would definitely recommend for date night or a night out with friends.

My husband and I decided to celebrate Valentine’s Day at Fogo. The service was 10/10! We loved Edgar, very personable and made sure we got what we wanted in a timely manner. The ambiance was nice, however it was a bit over crowded I would say, but that’s expected during a holiday. The food was a 8/10. A few of the meats had no flavor (our favorites were the sausage, garlic steak, lamb, lamb chops, beef rib, the cheese and honey, and the beef wrapped in bacon). Everything was clean & organized well. We definitely enjoyed our time.

Experience was great service was outstanding only thing I do not like is they give you a very small slice of steak then leave and come back until you get down to the last part something like bird feeding I like to eat personally and I ordered steak not all you can eat so maybe I was expecting to get all my food at once but over all great food good price 👍🏼

Fogo de Chao was an excellent choice for Valentine’s weekend. The tables were nicely spaced which allowed the servers to more easily bring the delicious meats to tables. As always the food was succulent, flavorful, and filling. In addition, they have figured out the buffet salad bar for those who want it: one way entry, disposal gloves, and social distancing. You can just as easily skip the salad bar though because they provide a side dish of masked potatoes, fried plantains and yuca. The staff was extremely friendly and attentive. I have always had a great experience but this time was even better. Highly recommend.
