    Good experience. Wasn’t offered all of the meats from the selection, they kept coming around with the same ones over and over again so unfortunately we weren’t able to try a few. At least 5 or 6 kinds. Drinks took a long time and were never correct. But overall it was a good time. The food was tasty. A bit too salty. Overall had a good time. Something to do every few years

    Thank you for sharing your experience. We apologize for the repetition in meat selection and any issues with the drinks. Your feedback helps us do better. Please call the restaurant to discuss further. We're glad you enjoyed the food and had a good time overall.

    Our first time here and went for a wine dinner. Beautiful place, food, and excellent service thanks to head server Eric and Chris - both attentive and very pleasant. Also generous pours. The Daou Wine Dinner presentation was in a private room. A beautiful table setup including printed menus with wines listed for each course. Also printed under wine glasses the grape varietal for each wine. The Daou Rep, Dan, was very informative and not boring. We also met the General Manager ( sorry I forgot her name) who was enthusiastic about overseeing this dinner and in general the restaurant. Dinner was well run under her direction. The food was excellent, creative and the wines were expertly suited for each course. We signed up for future events and look forward to returning.

    Very loud and busy but great staff and service. Food was good, some meats were better than others. I wasn’t the biggest fan of the cold salad bar; there were lots of options and the selections were good but I’d rather have more hot side selections. Dessert was absolutely amazing tho! I’d also much rather be in a quieter restaurant but that’s just personal preference!

    We have been to the Fogo de Chao in Burlington and Boston multiple times and we have always been big fans. We were excited to try the Providence location last Friday and were extremely disappointed. Our bar drinks took at least 30 minutes and then the soda came 10 minutes after that. We waited 20 minutes for a glass of ice. We asked for more mashed potato’s and bananas that never came. The market table seemed light and we had to wait for certain things that we wanted. We felt that most times the gauchos came in our section, they had just ran out of stuff and this would happen constantly. We sat there for a good 25-30 minutes with the green side up and nobody came to our table that whole time. We did do the Fogo $44 deal but that just limits higher end selections so the service should not have been impacted. We still paid $70 pp. It was our friend’s first time and she was very disappointed, especially for the higher-end expectation. It was a busy Friday night but I still expect way more, especially after having had multiple fantastic experiences at other locations.

    We're truly sorry to learn about your letdown, particularly as you've enjoyed our other locations. We would like to discuss these concerns in detail. Please call the Providence restaurant, so we can make amends. Thank you.

    The waitress seemed to have forgotten about us, but it was not on purpose. She was just trying to balance too much on her plate. She greeted us and then we didn't see her again. We had to ask for plates and we didn't receive any sides until 47 minutes later, when we asked for them. When the sides finally arrived, they consisted of only half a serving of cold mashed potatoes, one plantain, and two pieces of cornbread.

    Good food, but service was lacking. The people serving the meats and other items were great, but drinks took waaaay too long time to come out, water glasses not refilled, took forever to pay the bill. Servers float all around the restaurant but I don't think any of them take ownership of any one particular table.

    I’ve been to Fogo several times but this specific time was HORRENDOUS. I asked the server twice for a side of chimi sauce and never got it. Asked another server and again didn’t get it. Asked a third server and finally got it. The rotation of steaks were non existent, the steaks barely came to the table. I was appalled and honestly didn’t even want to pay the bill. The waitress stood around half the time so it wasn’t that she was overwhelmed. I will not return .

    First time here wasn’t sure what to expect. Served meat tasted good and they were able to accommodate asking for some cuts more well done if needed. We did have to wait quite a long time between some of the cuts and in order to try everything. I think the waiter noticed we were just hanging around and asked if we needed anything specific. When we said we were waiting to try a few more cuts, he was able to have them sent over.

    We love Brazilian steakhouses and have been to many but this one was the most expensive and the biggest disappointment. As we stood waiting to be seated, we were ignored by one Maître d' and when a second came she needed to power up her iPad then checked us in and went down the line checking in others instead of seating us. Waitstaff at first seemed attentive but then once drinks were ordered it was difficult to get attention. We were served cold mashed potatoes and when we asked if we could get some that were hot, we were again served another plate of cold potatoes. Multiple types of sausages were offered to us along with pork & chicken (dry) before any of the beef came along. The lamb chop we were served was well done and difficult to eat. Abandoned after one bite. We finally had to ask for the prime rib as it never came. It seems they are trying to push the lesser cuts of meat and although they came quite often with those versus the better beef options for the amount they charge they should not be so skimpy. I'm not sure I would return to this chain even in another location after the disappointing meal and mediocre service.

I felt bad for the host we waited 40 minutes to get a table our reservation was at 5:45 pm and we didn’t get a table till 6:30 pm and the host was trying her best to calm people down, I would like for next time to be more organized with the tables and having less people wait specially if the person has a reservation, I saw people disrespecting her and many languages, the host takes all the beat up… she made our wait better, she did a wonderful job as well

    Honestly I been here twice and I really wanted to love it! The servers were okay but the sides aren’t good everything they bring to the table is cold the bread the mash and the fries all would be better hot and some of the meat cuts taste undistinguishable like the garlic steak wasn’t sure if it was liver or not. I will not be back!

    To start, we were seated at our reservation time. My partner and I thought that was a good sign. When we ordered, we were told about where to get our sides while we waited for out entrees. My partner ordered “the tour” to try all that was being offered, and I ordered “picanha.” By the time the first meat came around, my partner only received a piece that was consumed in two bites. A few minutes later, a new meat to try, and same small portion. While this was going on, I ordered a drink from the bar. I flagged down our server, who took the order again. It took 2 atonal waiters and a manager to get a drink. I asked a total of four times. Back to dinner… my partner got rightly 4 oz of various meats over 40 minutes. My entree was not in sight. We flag down our waiter, who rudely said, “I just take orders, I don’t bring meat” and walked away. He had tossed a bowl of Brazilian tapioca rolls onto the table without a word, but loudly still. We were able to get the attention of another manager, Crystal P, who apologized for the lack of service and meal. She gave her best effort to try to salvage the experience and honestly, she should be commended for her quick intervention from the waiter’s statement. She assisted to the best of her ability, and we appreciate her for it. My feeling is that this place is just an overpriced salad bar, with staff that likes to ignore their guests.

    I have been to Fogo’s all over the country- 5 or so times a year for the last ten years. This was sadly my worst experience. I booked for a very special Birthday celebration - we arrived 5 minutes prior to our reservation and it was chaos in the waiting area. We were told people were taking longer to eat than expected so it would be a bit. It was a 35 minute wait past our reservation time . We were seated and ordered drinks and went up to marketplace - there was soup but no bowls or spoons and several dishes were near empty. None of my beloved signature favs like an apple salad…. Went back to table and we were brought overcooked polenta and undercooked plantains…round 2 at marketplace….. bowls, but no soup….. sigh. Back at table order drinks - 30 mins later we get 3 of 4 ordered….. another 15 mins to get the 4th….. round 3 at marketplace….. soup! Yay! We get some, so much black pepper in the butternut squash soup no one can eat it …. Order third round of drinks….. never comes…… twiddling thumbs at table waiting…… 45 mins later a lady asks us if we are waiting for something….. we all say yes simultaneously…… she checks out drinks - we get 3 of 4 AGAIN….. we don’t touch them…. Waiting in the 4th…. Another 20 mins….. we already had the check and had paid by then…… the drinks were totally wrong and we took one sip and said no…… but no one ever came back….. we just left ….. oh! And the special birthday celebration was an afterthought because we ordered and paid for dessert- were full and we were given a birthday dessert as we were leaving ( and of course didn’t ask why no one was touching their drinks) absolutely awful experience and we will not be dining at the Providence Fogo again.

    We were sat 20 minutes after our reservation time. That wouldn’t be a problem but our party was going to an event we then had to rush through dinner to get to on time. At the table, the service was subpar. We had to ask anyone who would listen for drinks and when we did get a chance to order, they took more than 20 minutes to arrive, plus one was forgotten. Probably won’t be back and will find and other place in the area.

    Took over 30 minutes for my salmon. Received it and it was chewy and overcooked. Took over 15 minutes for someone to realize I had a barely untouched fish in front of me that no one was eating. They offered a free dessert. I ended up waiting long for that too. The tableside meats were good though. I’m tired of giving this place any extra chances. Evenings have ended much worse than they started coming here the last few times. At least this time, they gave us the correct check at the end of the night.

    Have been many times… this time the people coming to the table were not on there game. Chicken came three times to the table and pork before any other meat came. We had to ask for it to come to the table. When we asked they flooded the table of five… and then slowed to non existent again… Just not our usual experience.

    The lamb chops were never brought the table until the end of our visit and even then they only brought 2 to the table. They messed up the check and charged the opposite bill to each card so we had to wait for refunds and left being double charged. After being refunded I was still overcharged. Left a message to have the charge removed and never received a return phone call. Had to dispute the bill the my credit card company. If you want the lamb chops you’re better off just ordering the meal instead of waiting for them to bring it to the table when they have it available. Also they should think about having some type of sauces for all the meat as some of it was dry. The waiters were very nice other than one of them screwing up the bill. For a new restaurant the manager should make herself more visible and check in with the guest. Management still checks in with the guests at The Capital Grill which more expensive than this place and they have been there forever yet still top service.

    Fogo de Chão is not a Brazilian steakhouse house. They do serve the steak Brazilian style and have a good caipirinha (a Brazilian cocktail), but that’s it. The restaurant has lost its identity years ago and it keeps getting worse. Food quality and variety was below average. Very few cuts of meat which was hard to get - we had to ask multiple times for the “gauchos” to stop by our table. Desserts were not good. Espresso coffee was huge and meh. Prices were high and the experience was very disappointing - we were a party of 11 (a mix of Brazilians and Americans and everyone left with the same impression). We won’t be back. Friendly staff, however they seemed flustered and/or understaffed.
