Cuts and options not as many as expected but quality and cook on the beef cuts was good. This is not the best Brazilian churruscaria I've eaten at because of the limited range of cuts but the service was great and the beef well prepared.

My wife and I decided to to an impromptu 'weekend getaway' in Orlando. We usually stay away from Int'l Drive but this time decided to check out Fogo de Chao; what a GREAT decision!\n\nBottom line: MEAT\n\nIf you love meat, you'll LOVE this concept. This was our first time going to a Brazilian steakhouse... we're addicted!\n\nGreat food, great atmosphere... a great experience!\n\nCome prepared (hungry), don't waste too much effort on the Market Table (but it's tough not to), and keep tabs on your 'service card' - it you forget to flip It to red, be ready for rapid-fire meat selections (in a beautifully delicious way). \n\nGo... enjoy...

Drinks at the bar and some snackage there was quite good, and paired with good service. \n\n At dinner, however, service was not very good. It took asking midway through the meal for the side items to be brought out, and only two items were even brought out then ( mashed potatoes and sweet plantains). \n\nThe meat was, as always, good. The salad bar likewise has a tasty selection.\n\nWine choices are fairly extensive and priced in the 'not terribly stupid' range. \n\n We've certainly had better service and experiences other branches of this chain.

Overpriced with very limited salad bar. Most Brazilian restaurants have Schrimp on salad bar. Nothing here. Limited toppings for salads! Mostly cheese toppings and some sliced tomatoes. Wine very overpriced for a glass. Sad place. Seated next to kitchen doors! Traffic was brutal. Felt like we were sitting in the middle of a traffic intersection. Never saw them come around with all the meats they advertise Had much much better at other Brazilian restaurants!!!

Classic older concept, contemporary décor, excellent for meat lovers but the extensive salad and sides are some of my favorite. I've been in several of these and Orlando is only about 5 years old. Good for groups, unhurried, and this particular restaurant has good service and full time attendants to the salads and sides so they always are presentable.

I'm an usual guest of this steakhouse since they open and the service here is the best in Orlando. But today, I don't know what was happen because we had the worst experience ever... Our table was like never been there. The waiters forgot us and the meet when arrived to us, was raw or overcooked. Only 4 types of cuts and meats were serve to us. So, I know that was a sunday but regarding that we spent 400 usd to 8 people, I think that was an experience that probably it's my last time here after almost 5 years in Fogo de Chao Orlando

There are better Brazilian restaurants. Comparing with other chains, salad bar was less stacked, soup was bland, no seafood and fewer choices. Meat was plentiful but lacked seasoning. Beef ribs were charred to a crisp because they brought out the leftovers from the earlier round. All in all, not worth $50 per diner. Quite disappointed.

Simply Wonderful. This will be a different type of review. I brought my family (8 of us) in for dinner on Christmas Eve. We were warmly greeted and made to feel welcome (an oddity in this area). We started off with a caipirinha (get the premium version) and were seated shortly thereafter. The salad bar is a meal by itself, with a wide variety of selections for the appetizer portion of dinner. The food is very good, brought to your table by 'Gouchos' who hold the spit while you carve off what you would like. There are 15 varieties of meat to choose from and it is all you can eat. Midway through dinner, my father-in-law suffered a medical emergency and was rushed to the hospital. The management declined to allow us to pay for our meal. They were concerned for us and called the next day to see how everyone was (It was Christmas Day). The management was more concerned about our welfare than about us than a profit. My family is all OK but we will not forget the management and staff at Fogo De Chao-Orlando. We, as locals, will be returning in the very near future.

Great restaurant for special event or celebration. The server and the guachos were great. The only feed back I have is when I was greeted when I arrived. I had a reservation and the host indicated that I did not and it was not there, she even asked me if I was sure if it was under my name, I'm mean really? I did the reservation!\nAfter about 5min she found it, then tells me oh, you requested a table by the wine cellar, but we don't have a table there. I mean that's the whole point of making the reservation?? A gentleman came over and said, yes we do, so we were taken to the table. After this not so pleasant first 10min. Everything else was great.

My husband and I went for the first time, just the two of us. It was my birthday week and I've always wanted to go. The salad bar situation is lovely. But don't go overboard. You can go back as much as you want, and you'll never eat it all. Promise. The meats they bring around are delicious! We had several, and they were all good. Ask for some chimichurri! The service was also spot on. We had a main waiter, but also servers coming by every few minutes to fill our water glasses. Bar service was super speedy. We had no room for dessert, but maybe if we pace ourselves we can fit it in next time. I highly recommend this place for a nice date or a special occasion.

We arrived to Fogo de Chao for a business dinner with foreign guests that requested tequila and the waiter said that the bar only had two tequilas which did not go over well. Paulo Santos, I believe who was the manager that evening ended up bringing to the table at least 10 other tequilas which more than satisfied my guests and treated us through out with suggestions of wine and special cuts of meat.

Not worth it at all.\nWhat a difference compare to Texas de Brazil.

Compared to other Brazilian-style steakhouse, Fogo de Chao stands out. It has a more pleasing decor, the noise level is subdued and the food is fresh, perfectly cooked and abundant.

As usual for Fogo the food, service, and atmosphere was excellent. What truly made the day was the outstanding job done by one server. Paulo Dearaujo was the most enthusiastic and professional waiter that I've seen in a long time. He was always ahead of any situation and had a very positive and friendly attitude. He obviously enjoys his job. He covered his tables and assisted others with theirs. I suspect he has a good future in the restaurant industry. The hiring and training practices of Fogo de Chao should be commended. Enjoy the experience.

I was there with some co-worker for a get together and we had a great time. Food was really good. You may choose from the Salad bar and also get the meats of if you have a vegetarian on the group like we did they can just pay for the salad bar which has plenty of alternatives for them. Overall great experience! I will be returning soon.

Salad bar was OK, I liked the unusual choices: pineapple, papaya, orange slices. Meats are delivered and sliced at the table. Meats are cooked to perfection - juicy on the inside and crusty on the outside, but flavorless, barely salt is added. If this would be organic or wild meat, it would be fine, but for regular farming meats - there was no flavor, only calories. Price $60 per person, even for kids there is no discount. For beverages, dessert - extra pay. At the end we did not eat better or more than in regular restaurant,but payed double what it would cost. The interior though is awesome. I would bring there some fancy or foreign friends, but for good food I know better places.

This was our second visit for brunch and it did not disappoint. The service is excellent and the food is delicious. I love coming for brunch because there are some extra menu items available that we love - the roast and egg bake & my daughter loves the Greek yogurt parfait. It's also nice to eat earlier and have a chance to walk off the big meal during the day! Kids under 12 are half-price and both of mine, girls ages 8 and 10, loved it.

I have eaten at several Fogos. Usually first rate. Best has been Las Vegas and Atlanta. At this one the salad bar was inadequately stocked. Missing items I normally see or not fully plated. The parmesian cheese wheel had only fragments of cheese as an example. No bread at the salad bar either.\nThe meat servers did not present all the options on the menu. We never saw several of the cuts offered. Had to ask for some cuts. Never offered the filet.\nIn that respect it was disappointing because I know how good other locations have been.

The service is top notch, as it seemed like we had 6 waiters instead of one. The food was fabulous starting with the amazing salad bar, and then the presentation of the variety of meats.

It was raining a lot in Orlando, but really a lot we arrived, and had no idea where was the main entrance as it was no sign behind in the parking area we enter in a covered porch with the kids while my husband was looking for a spot to park my car... we tried to open the back door but it was in the dining area and it was closed .\nThere was another single door, but was no sign if it was just for the staff team or exit .... so my kids tried to open as it was raining a lot and the waiters could see us but ,nobody took action to go there and try to help us, even if it's just to say ...\n- ....... look that door is not available or to give my kids an umbrella! \nYou know that extra care when you arrive at a dining place with a weather condition like that, you just expect this type of fair treatment ! \nWe manage to run in the rain to the main entrance but that experience was not nice at all! Once we entered the churrascaria was ok the service could be better, once you arrive until you get your table ready, the bartender was very busy serving just the people that was seating crowded around the bar there is no other person to serve or to guide so if there is a table in the waiting place for you to seat or even standing have a drink if someone would come and ask ... for me this is a lack of training for the employees !!! \nThe meat was delicious and once we were being served at the table it was very good! \n The beef ribs was to die for ... and picanha those are my favorites and it was really good!

We went on a Saturday night and the restaurant was packed. The food is excellent especially the cuts of meat that are brought around to your table. The salad bar area was also great with lots of premium ingredients. However, the service was not very attentive probably in part due to the extremely full house. We have been before on a nearly as busy of a night and had very good service. The only time we had attentive service was when it was time to pick up our payment for the check. It seemed like they wanted to get us to leave so they could seat someone else at our table. The desserts were at best very average. I know this is not the kind of place you go for a great dessert but it was shameful compared to the quality of the other food. We only got desserts because it was included in the magical dining month menu.

My husband and our four friends drove two hours to enjoy the food at Fogo de Chao of Orlando. We visited this location about three years ago, and had the best dining experience of our lives, but this place has changed. We had a reservation for 8:30, and weren't seated until after 9:00. We sat for another 15 minutes with only one plate set on the table. When we asked the waiter to bring plates for the rest of the group, he was very rude. He was overall the most inattentive waiter I've ever had. The guys bringing the steaks around we're just as bad. They all looked miserable. We will not be coming back in the future, nor will we recommend anyone else visit. This place has really gone downhill.

We had a reservation for 2ppl but had to wait almost 15min to be seated. They were very busy so I think they just took people as they arrrived vs hold a table for a person who actually planned for the event. The service was excellent by the server and he was very helpful and attentive. The gauchos were not as helpful. I ordered the full priced dinner since it was my birthday and a magical dining for my wife however the gauchos never came by with the prime cuts. I paid full price and only received house sirloin, other non prime cuts, chicken and pork which was disappointing as my first visit and birthday I was excited to try more cuts that they are known for. I mentioned it to the server once I realized our table was being ignored and he attempted to send people our way but by that time it was so late and I had ate the other cuts that were only part of magical dining. I wish I could have experienced the full price I paid for like the tables next to me who was being offered ribeye, lamb and filet mignon. The gauchos wouldn't even make eye contact so that I could tell them I was NOT with magical dining. Everything I tried was tasty and would not say it's a bad place just that they did not serve me what I paid for on my special day.

Shortly after our arrival we were promptly seated and our server went over the beverage choices, including the wine list, and took our order. The salad bar was very well stocked with a wide variety to chose from but you have to be careful not to fill up on the salad and leave no room for the main course! Then the servers started to bring out the delicious meats and it was heaven from then on! Everything had great flavor and was very tender! The filet was so tender you could practically cut it with your fork! The servers were friendly and took time to answer your questions. The managerial staff were on top of things making sure everything flowed smoothly. The downside is the tables are fairly close together and it was quite noisy from all of the guests talking making it a little difficult to carry on a conversation at your own table. When you make your reservation they periodically run a dining special ($33.00 / plate) but if you decide that is the way you want to go it precludes you from being able to get all of the items on the menu including the filet minion. Overall, I would definitely recommend it to my friends for a wonderful and unique dining experience!

Top quality meats, tasty side dishes, lovely decor, and attentive service made this a very pleasant dining experience. Though it is on the pricey side, it is worth every penny and you will eat your money's worth any way. Just make sure you arrive complelely famished! \n\nAfter we were seated, we were instructed to first go to the Market Table salad bar and get our salads and side dishes. Some of the selections on the salad bar included cold cuts, cheeses, bread, Caesar salad, tossed salad, veggies, potato salad, chicken salad, some sort of fruit salad and a Brazilian dish called farofa which had the texture and taste of sand and was the only thing I did not care for. There was also a station for the hot side items such as mashed potatoes, rice and beans, etc.\n\nOnce we had our side items and salads, we headed back to our tables and flipped our round service cards to the green side, which was a signal to the meat servers to come to the table with large skewers of various grilled meats - prime rib, lamb chops, pork ribs, chicken breast wrapped in bacon, filet mignon, sausages, beef ribs, sirloin, flank steak, leg of lamb, etc. Whenever we needed a break from the meats, we just flipped our server cards over to the red side and they would bypass the table.\n \nAs we were there celebrating my husband's birthday, they let him choose something off the dessert menu (for free) and brought it to him with a lit candle and a 'Happy Birthday' message written on the plate. \n\nI know some reviewers who came here for a romantic dinner were disappointed with the noise level. I am super sensitive to noise and it did not really bother me during our visit.\n\nOverall, I would highly recommend Fogo de Chao for any occasion. If the cost is a concern, go for lunch instead of dinner. You will pay a LOT less and still have the same great experience.

The meat tasted very good, but it was the only thing that was good. Since I have been to Texas de Brazil I can only compare. The salad bar was weak. I didn't have the option to even build my own only choose from pre-made flavored salads. The hot dishes were terrible, rice taste like paper no flavor of even a pinch of salt, and likewise were the beans. Then the other two warm dishes was rolls (bread) and sausage. We receive all the meat we can eat at the table why make that one of the hot sides? Same goes for he bread. and the mash potatoes brought to table were instant mash, and the bananas where burnt and not even sweetened with sugar.\nI wont go back here, I rather pay the same or even less somewhere else.

Stick to Texas De Brazil. The meat was over cooked and under seasoned, out if it was seasoned it was very salty. We went for Magical Dining Month, and for the same price Texas De Brazil is much better. I like to eat pineapple to take a break from all the meat, the pineapple was old and tasteless. Just not up to the same standards.

I've been going to Fogo de Chao since the only US location was in Dallas. I have never been disappointed in any of my meals at Fogo. This location was no different. The service was outstanding and the food was fantastic. I had a couple of items I hadn't had at Fogo before. They had a Pork Chop as well as NY Strip. The Pork Chop had the usual good flavor but was just a bit dry. The NY Strip, one of my favorite cuts, was fantastic. Prepared to perfection as usual.\n\nOne of the group had only been Texas de Brazil and didn't like it at all. Because of that, he had never tried Fogo and was turned off by the whole idea. He had his mind changed very quickly. He noticed right away the difference in the service and the food. He quickly became a fan.\n\nI'll be back to the Orlando Fogo again!

I've been to the Fogo De Chao in Atlanta and loved it. It was quiet and you could visit with friends. It could also be romantic. Servers were great and always checking on you. You could also take your time and slowly move through your meal. Fogo De Chao in Orlando was none of these things. The food was good but I felt like the meat was salty and salad bar was ok. It was loud and very busy in there. I can't say the service was horrible but it was who ever stopped by your table. I swear I had 5-7 different servers or helpers. I think we saw our waiter twice, once when we sat down and once to drop off the bill. The manager is the one who cashed us out. We were in and out of there in less than an hour. I felt rushed and could tell it was more of a move them in, move them out situation. Maybe that's how it is in a tourist town but I won't be back and was disappointed.

Went for magical dining, Fogo did not exceed my expectations. There was no real explanation of who they are, what sets them apart, not even much explanation of the meats (they hand you a chart). They don't even explain the interestingly different, chewy cheese bread (I believe it was made of Yucca flour). You are not an individual table or diner at this place, you are just part of the masses. The long line at the salad bar (it's got beautiful silk flower arrangements - that's what I remembered) reminds you of formal night on a Carnival cruise buffet. All the accoutrements (rice, beans, mashed potatoes, desserts) are sub-par or weird (caramelized bananas at the beginning of the meal?). The signature picahna cut of sirloin was good, but when you get an initial outside slice (beneath that slice it is blue rare), it's a bit over salted. The flank steak was best. The lamb needed more than just salt and pepper (I think that is all they season with, but as I said - the cooking process, history, etc. was not explained as I think it should have been). Shrimp would be a nice addition to all the red meat. This is my first churrascaria, so I can't compare Fogo to Texas de Brazil or others. Overall, it was just fine - glad I went but not something I would bother revisiting or recommending.

This visit was apparently in the middle of some Orlando Magical month special, and they were VERY busy! The salad bar was as versatile as ever, with plenty of choices and the employees ALL were hustling and very efficient! Servers were nice and asked for our requests on what meats and temperature we liked. Only drawback for me and hubby was the meats were basically flavorless for some reason. and hubby complained they were tougher than ever had been. I love their beef rib and lamb chops especially....but both had no usual good taste?? The Chimicurria sauce also was not normal tasting, nor looking for that matter...\nHave to wonder if someone else did the meat and sauce preparations this time or were they not prepared and cooked to the usual manner due to being so busy. Was a let down because we drive almost 2 hours to eat there and I was so looking for the normally scrumptious beef ribs and lamb chops mostly, but, sadly they were lacking this visit. :(

It was good meat for a Churascaria chain though because of the Orlando Magical Dining program they limited the meats for people who bought into the magical dining. We didn't use the magical dining so we were wondering why they never brought the lamb and other meats for us. One of the servers didn't really understand English and gave us the magical dining limited meat sticker. We just found out in the middle of the meal of the mistake. It's a little disappointing.

It was my first time to a Brazilian steakhouse. The have a nice wine menu, both by the bottle and glass. The food is plentiful . The service was very good. Our waiter was attentive and all servers who passed by asked if we were in need of anything. The Market Bar has a very large selection of fruits, cheeses, salads, beans and rice, soup, and cold meats. The cooked meats (top and bottom sirloin, beef ribs, filet, rib eye, pork chops, chicken, leg of lamb, lamb chops, and sausage) and are brought to you in a never-ending style. You call a 'gaucho' to serve meat by changing your table disc from red to green. The meats are grilled. I did expect the meats to have more flavor. Most of it was very tender, even though it was quite bland. With some pieces, however, I found that you only tasted the char. \n\nThe restaurant was very crowded and our local Congressman was seated at the table next to us. The wait without a reservation was over 90 minutes. I would not wait that long to eat there. I would not bother to go again. I think you can find more flavorful food elsewhere.

We brought my son to dinner for his Bday. Overall, we had a good time but felt rushed as we hadn't even received our cocktails yet and the meats bagan to arrive. No one had even turned their discs to green yet and some people felt obligated to take them. Let people enjoy the salad bar first before you start auctioning off the meat. Also seemed to be a bit chaotic with all the gauchos coming around a bit too often and no room to move between the tables around us, it was very cramped. Didn't see a manager on the floor at all for table touch nor did the manager stop by when the waiter refused my online $15.00 coupon that Fogo de Chao sent me for completing a survey.

Fogo continues to get it right and and does a superb job. Others take note.... In an ever changing venue of restaurants, mega restaurants and hidden gems that continiously invent themselves and re-invent themselves to gain your patronage...Fogo not only sets the bar for Brazilian churrascarias, but rather defines what an excellent one should be...always. \nFor Orlando locals and non-locals alike, our metro area has a dining scene that has quickly surpassed many larger cities and continues to set trends that others emulate...we happen to have no less than 18 churrascarias within a quick (I mean few minutes) driving distance from each other. The eagerness to earn your business is strong...the pursuit to keep it for a long time....is where Fogo does it better than all.\nThe food....Traditional cuts of meats, poultry, lamb, sausages that are seasoned and rotiserrie squewerd to your specific liking. Texas de Brazil, Boi, Nelore take note....if its too salty, too bland, too cooked, not cooked enough...they listen to you and prepare it your way...and the best part...they remeber how you like it, bring it back that same way for you every time! \nThe salad bar area is just right. Not over bearing as others and has the right items you'll be glad you tried. \nSides...excellent. From the cheese bread to the fried polenta and sweet plantains. They arw cooked perfectly and never ending.\nThe best part.....SERVICE!!! This group GETS IT!! They wrote the book and are so proud they have the priviledge to serve YOU! They make you feel welcomed and are at your table ensuring you have no need go unfulfilled. Water never goes past half a glass without filling, drinks are promptly replaced or refilled, meat gauchos and servers take care of you weather its their job or not. You are visited by the manager and their staff not once but several times throughout your dining experience. \nThey know how to earn your business for a lifetime and keep you hungry for more. Thank you Fogo...see you soon!!!

You won't roll away bloated if you have a smart plan of attack... limit your trip to the salad bar to a moderate green salad and skip the starches (potatoes, bread, etc.).

The ambiance sets the scene for a romantic dinner and the wait staff dote on us throughout the entire meal. In addition, when we dine for Fathers' Day, Mothers' Day or even Valentine's day we receive gift cards for a free dinner when you buy one at a future date. On this occasion, we were celebrating our 32nd wedding anniversary and we were offered a free dessert of our choice.

The steaks were good. Only thing I was disappointed about was the filet mignon did not make it to our table till my family was full off of the sirloin cuts and chicken. Filet mignon is a popular steak cut, I would suggest having 2 on the floor at a time possibly because I would have liked to enjoyed it at the beginning of my meal.

This was our first experience at any Fogo de Chao, and just our second time to a higher-end Brazilian steakhouse chain like Fogo. We visit Orlando about 3-4 times per year and have talked about trying Fogo in the past. Our visit coincided with Magical Dining Restaurant Month, and we took advantage of the special offer. The food was very good, and the staff seemed to be trying hard to provide good service. On this Saturday evening during restaurant month, the restaurant was packed, the noise volume was loud, and apparently the kitchen and serving staff were having a difficult time keeping the salad and vegetable bars stocked. When we visited the salad bar, there were bowls missing for about 25-30% of the items, and even after waiting for 10 minutes or so, only some of the items were replenished (and by that time others were empty). Overall our experience was a good one, and we will likely come back for another visit ... but perhaps next time just make sure we are not arriving in the middle of dinner hour on a busy weekend day.

Starting from the bar where the word polite and basic modern or contemporary drinks knowledge did not exist, then, once we where on the table I had to get up after 15 minutes in order to ask to be served, ask for drinks and start having some food. The only 'just good' thing was the food, but the overall experience wast not at all worth the high price you have to pay. It is incredible that a Brazilian Churrasqueria has only one type of cachaza and not precisely good ones from Brazil. If you go to Fogo de Chao in Rio de Janeiro you may ask, to a very nice staff that make you feel they are happy to serve you, for a Caipirinha made with different types of cachaza, vodka, sake, fruits, etc. In Orlando if you dear to sit in the bar and ask for a Caipirinha with sake the answer is: 'You are going to have to go to a Japanese Restaurant', and if you breathe after that answer and say, ok, make it with Cachaza (one of the two mediocre ones they have, by the way, one is the 'Fogo de Chao' cachaza) but please put some lychee on it, expect to be asked: 'Say that again? lychee? what is that?'. A restaurant of that size and international reputación should offer the best service including a key point like the bar. Just like they do in other restaurants of the chain where the service is cheerful and impecable.

My family and I vacation in Orlando every April and make it a point to dine here. The food and service are amazing. \nWe particularly noticed the attire on this visit. The majority of patrons were in shorts and tee shirts, some were in bathing suits! We were quite taken back by the fact that this was acceptable in a fine dining restaurant. I think management needs to decide if they want to be fine dining or walk in and price accordingly.

The food was delicious, went during magical dining so the price was reduced - some top steak items not available as a result, but not a big deal. The house special steak and the lamb were fantastic! While equally tasty, don't weigh yourself down with the salad and specialty bar.

I'll start with the good... the servers were awesome. Very attentive, fun and friendly. By the end of the evening, I almost felt as if we were being cared for by old friends. This is a pet peeve of mine as nothing infuriated me more than lackluster customer service. I was not disappointed.\n\nOverall the entire experience was great, but I do have two minor gripes. One was the meats; I expect to be blown away when dining at a Brasilian steakhouse. While not uneatable by any means, for the price I've had better. \n\nThe second issue was the hot-mess that was the host staff. While I understand this is a very busy location and it can be difficult to manage the high traffic of guest. When I have a prior reservation, I expect to be sat in a reasonable amount of time. Lucky, the bar here is a great place escape the crowded front foyer and try to forget you've been waiting for 20 minutes.

The food was delicious and good quality. The service was attentive. The only issue I had was with the price I expected a 'fancier' ambience. The place has the look, food and staff for it, and some people dressed up; however, I guess they aren't going to turn away families in tank tops and flip flops. It is the place to go in jeans and a shirt, not like other Fogo where the dress code is enforced.

Disappointing Christmas dinner. They were out of a lot of things on the salad bar. They could not keep up with replenishing clean plates and bowls and had to keep asking servers to replenish. We did not get to sample several dishes as they were never refilled quickly (or at all). Christmas dinner should have included a small dessert for the price given the holiday and large crowd.\nThis was our first time dining here and think we will stick with Texas de Brazil for future holiday dinners.

Asparagus & Pea was the soup combo, and we both enjoyed the flavor.

We will be back!!\n\nOnly drawback was we had to ask for condiments such as mint jelly, Chimichurri and mustard sauce for salmon etc., they should be on the salad bar and available. Also we missed out on the dessert bread & such because they had already started clearing some food off the salad bar to prepare for dinner. I did ask and the girl checked but said there was no more, sad if they throw it out that fast.

As a long time Texas de Brazil (TdB) fan, I was pleasantly surprised with Fogo de Chao (Fogo). On the whole, I liked the meat better at Fogo, mainly because it was less salty than its I-Drive counterpart. The thick, luscious lamb chops alone were worth the price. They also offered New York strip pieces along with filet mignon. While I missed the lobster bisque from the TDB salad bar, I welcomed the smoked salmon and capers and roasted garlic at Fogo. The problems arose because the fire alarm kept sounding (New Year's Day). Fogo has a nice option for non-meat lovers -- Chilean Sea Bass. However, we could not order this because of problems engendered by the false fire alarms (auto shutdown of electronic ovens, etc.) Apart from this, the ambiance was great and the meat ... superb! They made up for the problems by comping some delicious desserts.

I used to dine at the Fogo de Chao in Beverly Hills, a lot! It was my husband and my favorite restaurant. After moving to Florida we were excited to enjoy it again. Unfortunately, this location was nowhere near as good as Beverly Hills. The service felt rushed from the start. We had no idea who our server was because someone different was always serving us (drink refills, side refills, plate changes). It made it very confusing on who to ask when we needed something. But the most disappointing part was that the meat was very underseasoned. I would be surprised if they used any salt at all. The polenta was cold everytime, which used to be my favorite side dish. The only saving grace were the desserts, the creme brulee and the tres leches were both very good. We will not be going back.

I was born and raised in Brazil and recall eating at Fogo de Chão since I am kid and always loved it.\nMoved to the U.S. decades ago and would always return to Fogo de Chão when back in Brazil and as they started to open in the U.S. always would go whenever in a city they were.\nMoved to Orlando a couple of months ago and finally went to dine there and the place is beautiful, well located, service outstanding, salad buffet awesome but the 'barbecue' very, very different from what a Brazilian barbecue and Fogo de Chão looks like.\nThe sausage was not Brazilian style by no means and it took over 40' before one passed by that I could taste. To be honest I had one after I had finished eating.\nThe famous Picanha and Frandinha were tasteless, no salt (Brazilian barbecue is just seasoned with marine salt).... And not appeal.\nSad to see it.

This didnt affect us being seating at out reserved time which was great.

We couldnt have normal dinner conversation. \n\nNow the most important part. The meat was sub standard. I could get a better meal at the outback and save myself a pretty penny.

This place is expensive, chaotic, noisy, with no customer focus & the food isn't great either. We are so pleased we tried it in Magical Dining month as I would have hated to pay full price for this dinner. We had a reservation but were not seated til 35 mins after that time. They called out your number when the table was ready, in unclear bingo-style- very tacky. The bar could have been so much better but it felt like someone had just thrown some tables & chairs in there as an afterthought. The dining area was large with tables everywhere, & no booths to break up the sound. It was loud & reminiscent of college dining halls. The salad bar was quite good, but you had to dodge the waiters as they flew past you at alarming speed with their skewers of meat to get there. When the meat comes, it comes at a torrential rate, so flip over your disc or you will be bombarded with their offerings & you won't have any peace to shout over the mellee to yell to your fellow diners- no good for date night! The meat service is random so it took us all the time we were there to track down a waiter with some lamb but had been offered the sirloin countless times. The servers had very little personality, and just rushed from table to table, they barely had the time to explain what they were putting on your plate! We opted for Key Lime pie for dessert & it tasted very powderey as if it had come from a packet which hadn't been mixed fully. Then we waited 20 mins to retrieve our car from the valet parking. I guess if you want to pig out on meat like a carnivore & stuff yourself silly its probably a good place to go and you'd get your money's worth, however discerning diners would look elsewhere. Being on I-Drive means that many of the customers are tourists and judging from the wait for our table they are not suffering through lack of business, however, you can only ignore the needs of your customers for so long before they vote with their feet. Save your money for somewhere decent.

The food was tasty, the service was decent, the restaurant was terribly loud. There were two large parties which overtook the entire back area. The hostess originally tried to seat us by these two tables of 20+ but upon my expression of displeasure, we were reseated. Unfortunately the majority of the patrons were horribly dressed and not fit for a fast food restaurant. Might be time for a dress code. Valet service was a highlight.

The food was great. The best part is that there is no waiting, other than to be seated. The food is already hot and prepared...As soon as you are seated you are free to grab a few bites from the bar, including bacon, prosciutto, a variety of salads and cheeses, vegetables prepared in different ways. It was great for me because I like being able to sample different items and styles of cooking and preparing. The meats were hot and flavorful. I was able to have lamb, pork, and steak all on the same plate without being charged extra for getting a variety of meats. The food is flavorful and simple, so you can taste the natural flavor of everything. We also ate during lunchtime, so it was quieter and not crowded.

They noticed from the special request note on our reservation that we were celebrating both our anniversary and my birthday. All the food was perfectly prepared and absolutely delicious. For the occasion, they gave us a complimentary dessert of our choice (tres Leches cake) with 'Happy Anniversary' written in cake decorating pen on the plate. They gave me a 10% military discount.

If you go to Fogo de Chao is because you love meat! Compared to other Brazilian meat chains, this is really good and the quality of meat is excellent, as well as the selection of appetizers and salads they have. Formula is all you can eat, and you just stop having other meat when you put the red sign on the table. Wine list is good but overall a bit expensive.

Thus was our first experience at a Brazillian steakhouse. It was awesome. The wait staff was on top of it so polite and the mist excellent friendly service. We had two managers visit our table throughout our dining experience to check on us. Never felt so pampered in a restaurant. The only negative comment I could give is that we were not offered several of the meat choices including ribeye, chicken wrapped in bacon or the Parmesan crusted pork. We did ask our waiter for ribeye and he immediately sent someone to our table however we never did get to taste other items. Overall our experience was very excellent and we dill definable revommend and visit again in the near future.

We've enjoyed dinner a Fogo de Chao many times, particularly for special occasions and when we need a 'meat fix'. It's a bit pricey and was excited when they recently started offering a a brunch option. It's about $15 less than dinner - however they serve all of the same meets and the salad bar is very similar (more fruit, which is great to end your meal with). We'll definitely be back!

Great service. We were asked several times if there was any specific cut we wanted. We loved the lamb chops and the tender beef rib. Food was delicious. Fogo is the hands down the best Brazilian steakhouse. Only downside is that it is pricey though. I have two young girls and even at half price they don't eat the value's worth. Otherwise I would eat here more often.

My parents first visited Fogo on opening day in Chicago, and they were hooked. We would travel down to Orlando several times a year, and started going to Fogo 2 years ago. After moving down to Florida, we started going for all special occasions. We went for our Anniversary, Valentines, Easter, Mothers day, and we will go for Fathers day. As I write this review, I think about the delicious beef ribs that only are available if requested. The garlic steak is always cooked to perfection, and the bacon at the salad bar is superb. Fogo does a great job at creating loyal customers who want to keep coming back. On all holidays and special occasions, they run promotional offers for x amount off or a free meal on your next visit. My family and I will be going back again tonight to use our mothers day promotion. This is restaurant is a MUST. Make sure to not eat for a few days before coming!

I was visiting Orlando for a few days with my girlfriend and I meant to make a reservation at another well known Brazilian restaurant, but I sleepwalked through the Open Table application and landed here. Seeing my error, I decided to go with it. We were very pleased with the results.\n\nI suppose most of the Brazilian steakhouses I have visited have familiarity to them in their procession of how dinner runs with waiters walking around with meat skewers, but Fogo de Chao presented a different version to me. Their service was impressive and it appeared they leaned into it a bit to make us feel comfortable right away.\n\nI should note the wine steward, Mario, brought us a fantastic Zaccardi Malbec, which we consumed with delight with endless plates of sirloin steak. It did not take a trained Sommelier to tell that he executed the wine service perfectly and it is likely he would have passed any test of service. \n\nWe look forward to returning with friends to experience this kind of dinner again.

Fogo de Chao, brazilian churrasco franchise brought into this country with a special formula that has been tuned now for over a decade, has found merits to a variety of audiences: from the business executive meal, to the kids birthday to the romantic first date to the proposal place, the ambiance caters to all of it, while proposing the highest in quality of food, wine and service.\nThey simply decided to back the motto: you pay what you get for. Its expensive, no hiding it, especially compared to the other many churrasco franchises popping around trying to imitate and ride the wake of this shooting star, but the one thing that puts Fogo ahead of them all, is that they don't compromise: best quality, best fresh food, best service and training, period. \nEvery item in the menu, every choice in the salad bar, every produce and prepared concoction offered at Fogo is top of the line, or it goes away. The entire staff works as a team and is trained to customize the experience to EACH table, committing to memory each preference, each requests and even the cultural differences. Service in this kind of franchise makes often the difference between a repeat return and a leaver. And after a decade and 4 separate locations repeatedly visited during the year for various occasions, Fogo stands as the standard I compare them all to. Oh, its also a lot of fun !!!

I had heard great things about this restaurant and had never had the Brazilian Steakhouse experience.

It was awesome and I think it may stand out from the others but I will have to try them now to see how they compare. I believe the price for dinner is a bit high but the quality of the food was excellent and you never wanted for anything. The staff was friendly and attentive and the cleanliness was superb.

If you have never had Brazilian cuisine and would like to experience an amazing food and dining experience, Fogo de Chao is definitely the place to be! I have been to almost all of churrascarias in Orlando and I must say that this restaurant is my favorite by far. Their food is just absolutely fantastic! They have variety of different meat to choose from. They had some meats that weren't available in other churrascarias. My favorite was costela. It is beef ribs slow cooked for a long time. It literally melts in mouth!!! So delicious! Their salad bar is also very fresh and offers great choices! From the beginning to the end, I felt like I was well taken care. The front and back servers were constantly checking on us to see if we needed more drinks, foods, etc. Whenever we requested certain meats, they had the server bring the meat out right away. Everything was perfect. It is more pricey than other churascarias, but it is definitely money well spent. I would love to visit again.

Food was okay, I feel the meats are better seasoned and the small bananas are 100 times better at Texas. The flavor and substance was just not there when I went. Not to mention it's cheaper at Texas. The server was good and attentive though.

This place is fantastic. The selection, the atmosphere, the staff... I can't get enough of it. I try to go to Fogo at least once a year, but if I could I would go once a month. The meat selection has a little something for everyone. And you are never disappointed. The desserts are just as tasty as the main course, and the salad bar is exquisite as well. I recommend this to anyone looking for a fresh take on steak, and an experience they wont soon forget. Fogo is the place to go, if you love meat, and love food.

Been there before. Notice buffet is less expansive. Came out once with the better cuts of meat, and lots with the chicken, pork, and lesser cuts of beef, like sirloin and flank steak. Service is good. But their competition like Nelore and Texas de Brazil are a step above them in the food offered.

Booked this because a ton of people have always said how great Fogo was so we decided to finally bite the bullet and go. Sure, the price tag is hefty, but for what you get? OH MY GOSH it is SO worth it! Pretty sure my boyfriend ate enough for 4 people. The server(s) were fantastic, the manager even came over at one point and greeted us, the food was amazing and it was certainly well worth the $100 that we spent (with a $25 coupon too)! I loved the little lay out of the market table to try different salads and cheeses and such as well as the soup rice and beans. The fact that they made it simple with the meat and appetizers coming to you plus you could request meats that weren't brought out yet was incredible! I would easily go back in a heartbeat and have already raved to my friends and family about how awesome this place is!

Dinner was going very well, the meat mediums were all fantastic and the cuts were perfectly cooked. The issue came up around half way through our meal as a family came in with two toddlers. One of these toddlers has a penchant for yelling random words as loud as they could and the other toddler did nothing but scream and cry the entire time. The adults' solution at the table was to get up as a group and go to the salad bar to leave the young ones there alone. This obviously did not work and may have even made the situation worse. Unless they're on the menu, leave your children at home.

I loved my first-time experience at Fogo de Chao for many reasons, food and servers tying for first place. Already the vast array of meats and bacon-wrapped meats are astounding, but lamb is my absolute favorite, and they serve it two ways here! Savory thick slices followed by the most tender chops - the server caught on quick and it was hilarious how often he stopped by the table, just for me. And this started thanks to our waiter who took care of us the entire evening, from drinks until dessert, making our dinner feel VIP. With such a friendly, warm, yet elegant atmosphere, I can't wait to go back.

We are very familiar with Brazilian Steakhouses and looked forward to dinner at Fogo De Chao while visiting in Orlando. Instead of a positive experience, we were very disappointed with the food quality. Much of the meat was seared on the outside but RAW in the inside. Lamb Chops and some of the steak slices were absolutely raw. We mentioned this to the wait staff for our table. They brought out other food without cutting into it. Same issue.\n\nI would recommend Texas D'Brazil over this place in Orlando. There are many others in the vicinity that you can enjoy.

Great experience, but the meats do not seem to be aged or have much flavor. We are originally from Texas so we like our steaks aged and full of flavor.

This was probably my 6th or 7th visit to Fogo, so I obviously have liked it enough in the past to go back and spend the 50 bucks to do so. That being said, this experience was less than great. While the service was good, the meats tended to be overdone on most occasions, even when switching from a medium request to medium rare - the meat was still brown in the center. Still flavorful, but overdone. The worst part was the light above our table continued to go out and back on which was very distracting and downright annoying. The server said they couldn't fix it, so we were stuck. Not a huge deal, but when paying 50 bucks a person I would expect the light bulbs to function correctly.

According to online offered 16 meat selections, I did not see or was offered that many choices only about 5. The side dishes that came with included instant garlic mash potatoes which still had flakes in it. The side bar had a nice selection of fruit and variety of salads some I was able to reconize others not so much. I spent around 150.00 bucks for 2 including dessert, tip, and tip for valet.

My first time here was in January with my boyfriend. The food was amazing, service was attentive and fast and the meal was worth the price. Since we were so impressed, we came back for Valentine's Day. I couldn't have been more disappointed. Our reservation was at 7:30pm, so it's not like we were there late. By the time we got there the majority of the salad bar was gone and had not been refilled. Items were completely limited, cold and didn't taste good. At no point during the evening was the salad bar restocked or refilled. It was a huge waste of money. We also only recieved 1 set of sides the entire night. They were never switched out, sat there getting cold and honestly, came out cold to begin with. Our waiter came by our table maybe twice throughout the evening to check on us. That was it. We were there for over 2 hours, got 1 set of sides, barely any salad or other salad bar items and about 5 pieces of meat since the guys with the swords only came by our table maybe 3 times the whole night; and we were located in the center of the restaurant. I couldn't have been more disappointed and don't think I'll consider coming back at this point. The price was worth it the first time but was definitely not worth it at all the second time around. I recommend if you're going to take reservations for a holiday that you still present your restaurant in the same manner you would any other day. To top it all of, both my boyfriend and I got very sick that next night. To be blunt, it was an awful, extremely pricy Valentine's Day dinner.

We were greatly disappointed. Not only do I eat churrascarria type food on my frequent trips to Brazil, we are frequent customers at Texas de Brazil. The latter restaurant has multiple waiters attending customers -- one seemingly just to scrape your tablecloth to keep things tidy. No such service at Fogo de Chao. I went half an hour before nearly tripping a waiter to get a refill of my iced tea. Was difficult getting the friend bananas, which were mushy. The mashed potatoes were poor instant, rather than real fresh potatoes. The meat selection was small, and waiters didn't seem to want to actually stop at tables. The picanha was especially disappointing. We complained to the manager. $200.00 for two adults and a child for a lousy experience. We should've stick with Texas de Brazil. Same money, far better food and service and decor.

The care with which the food is prepared surpasses the tradition in this south brazilian connoisseur recreation. The wine and spices utilized in the marinade are of quality and deprived of sulfites, which i always abhor in lesser standard american restaurant stations.\nThe saucier adopts a dry rub with Mediterranean herbs but finishes the marinade of the chicken by immersion in tangy red wines aromatized in cheiro verde and parsley pimiento.\nThe combination of slow roasting these marinated meats to perfection results in a texture that is not overpowered by spices at the bite, yet release the perfumes and the brazilian nuances with every morsel.

I love Fogo because almost all the food there is not only safe but delicious. The only two off-limits meats are brought out together, making them easy to avoid. Even the croutons in the Caesar salad are safe, being made from the cheese rolls. The glutenous breads are at the end-cap of the salad bar so they're easy to avoid. We found the meats to be slow in coming on Christmas Eve and often over- or undercooked, with a reduced rotation of variety. However, on a normal day, both the service and food are typically impeccable.

Took my family of nine, what a great time we had. Our head waiter was extremely attentive, if we needed anything we just had to ask and it was there. The food was amazing, I think my favorite was the filet and also the leg of lamb. It is cholesterol heaven. Hope we go soon again.

This year My husband and I decided to go off the traditional route and take our parents out to a restaurant as a treat on Christmas Day. No one ever likes the clean up, however I must say although I went with confidence and high hopes- we were disappointed.\n\nI researched our Christmas Day location and came across Fogo de Chao on trip advisor with amazing reviews- I was so confident that this was THE place. We've been to Texas de Brazil and loved the atmosphere so naturally thought that our experience would be the same... And Better yet beautiful for our parents. The reviews did not match our experience I must say. \n\nWe arrived, our hostess seemed to be frazzled. As we stood 3rd in line we could see she was by her left seating and sorting through reservations. She would leave for awhile, come back seat the party, and repeat until we got up front- this after 15 minutes. She was very pleasant don't get me wrong- just overwhelmed and alone. \n\nOur waiter - I don't remember his name, very lifeless no smiles, didn't even acknowledge it was Christmas. Another waitor- I think Alexis came and I was able to order from the wine list and she assisted us with getting the meats and refreshing our plates when needed- we didn't see the other guy again. \n\nThe food display was pathetic! For a Christmas feast, I hope the chef and manager did not feel accomplished at the end of the day. The buffet display were lacking and the meats were sparse- we waited for 20 minutes for leg of lamb when it finally rotated they both came at once. Our waitor also tried to track them down but was unable. \n\nAt the end we felt so embarrassed, but our parents- understanding that we meant well urged us not to make the day be negative. We ate , didn't bother to order dessert. We just paid our bill and left. Very impersonal and unfriendly environment. \n\nThis was a first and last for our family- and a Christmas meal I look forward to forgetting.

We have been to Fogo many times, and never once disappointed. I read some reviews and find it interested that they feel not good cuts of meat or flavor, etc. All one has to do is ask and the staff will be more than happy to accommodate . Cant say enough about wait staff. They work ! Yet always welcoming and go the extra mile to suggest or make the experience one to remember. The salad bar is fresh and stocked. Meats are cooked to order...like I said ASK if you would prefer medium rather than rare, etc. \nPeople complain about the cost, but I would ask if they go to any upscale dining establishment, most are ala carte and will pay more for a complete meal. \nIf you haven't been, give it a try. Go for lunch instead of dinner. Good for families. \nWe love Orlando Fogo and will continue to drive an hour and half to have dinner or lunch there.

I thought there was barely enough room between the tables to walk to get to the salad bar. Our waiter was very kurt and not the least bit personable. We had a reservation and still had to wait. The people waiting next to us on the couch had a reservation and had been waiting over 30 minutes. My favorite cut is sirloin. The guy serving the sirloin kept coming close but kept by passing us. Getting his attention was work. For just my husband and I it was close to 200$ (including drinks and dessert) but for that much we really would like to not stress over service or atmosphere.

We had a wonderful time, the food was simply delicious, the service was outstanding. I was familiar with the token process for the meat at the table, but the other two couples who joined us for lunch were not. Our waiter went out of his way to explain everything, everybody had a great time. At the end, he asked me in Portuguese (I am Brazilian-American) what the occasion was, and it happened to be a reunion of old workmates who hadn't seen each other for many, many years, so at the end we were presented with a table desert (Brazilian Flan) that had the word REUNION written around it on the plate.

We had been to a Fogo de Chao in Texas and had great expectations for Thanksgiving dinner. The salad bar was smaller than expected and did not have as many items as we had previously seen on it. Empty items were slow to be replaced. We had a table right next to the salad bar and noticed on more than several occasions, children alone - no parent anywhere to be found - taking items, putting them on their plate, then putting them back on the salad bar! And also using hands instead of utensils. We did not return to the salad bar after that. The meats were bland and did not really have different flavors for different meats - with the exception of the garlic steak. We did not see any seafood items at all and expected them. Overall, for the price for a family of 4, we were very disappointed. We do not plan to return and have had much better experiences at a competitor Brazilian steakhouse.

Fogo de Chao is simply amazing. As Brazilian steakhouses go, they all share the same principle - rortate as many varities of meat as possible, green is go, red is stop, with a buffet of salad and vegetables (no doubt designed to fill you up early). Fogo is separated from the rest by the excellent flavor in their meats. My favorites being the filet, lamb (sliced and chopped), and pork sausage. Service is excellent with multiple servers keeping an eye on your needs. The bar menu is extensive and they bring around a cordials cart after your meal. Deserts are great, I prefer the papaya cream with the creme de cassis, but the pineapple and ice cream is also a great choice. \n\nFogo is great, just be sure you're hungry!

The only thing I would recommend if it is all possible is to provide another coaster for those that do not eat pork products so that the waiters can automatically avoid the table.

This churrascaria is much more authentic than the other chain churrascaria in Orlando. They don't serve everything that is served in Brazil ( chicken hearts for example ), but they have everything that the average American would be willing to eat. Also, I noted many Brazilians eating there, so it must be good. I rarely see Brazilians eating at Texas de Brazil... They also don't have the entertainment often seen in churrascarias in Brazil, but I consider that a positive attribute because I prefer to focus on my dining companions. Try the Guarana with orange to drink. It is delicious, refreshing, and compliments the meat well. The meat was cooked perfectly and it was delicious.

The receptionist did not speak good English, and said I didn't have a reservation, I think because she couldn't understand me - I had to give the reservation number.

We're big fans of the Garlic Steak, Flank Steak, and Top Sirloin. The filet and ribeye are great too, but with the other choices, we still had a great time.\n\nWe had reservations when they opened on a Saturday night for 5PM, which is when they opened the doors for dinner service. When we left about 6:30, the parking lot was full but the wait at the door didn't seem too long. They do a great job of moving people through and turning over tables. \n\nWe highly recommend Fogo over Texas De Brazil.

This was my fourth visit to Fogo de Chao and I always bring a group of my staff with me. The food was phenomenal as always, however, I was extremely dissatisfied that we had to keep asking for more meat :-( We were seated in the back dining room (off of the bar) and we sat with empty plates for 5 and 10 minutes before meat would come, then when it would come it wouldn't be the correct 'doneness' that we had to previously ask for. We had people in our party of 14 that wanted well done, med, med rare; and it just seemed like each time we got the meat we wanted it took at least 2 times of asking before it came. I just felt a little bit forgotten about throughout the entire experience.

I'm an Orlando local...first time going there this past Saturday and it was great. made a reservation in the morning for that night at 8:30pm. was seated by 8:15pm. meat was so good!! my favorite was the lamb! I'm not too much of a meat expert but I loved it all. I was glad when I realized how they changed the buffet food every so often. very busy though..children running around all over the place while people are holding the meat with knives...risky..tourists don't know how to control their kids lol but really I did enjoy it!!! would love to go again soon!!:)

Husband took the family for my birthday and it was a great experience. We raved about the place to several friends. Took a couple friends out there 'our treat' and it was a totally different dining experience. The Parmesan pork was brought out a couple times and it was so overcooked and dry. Chicken wrapped in bacon was a little overcooked. The beef was fine. Our waiter was great. Poor guy might have been new as we kept asking for Bacon wrapped Filet and he kept saying he's put the request in that it would be coming. This went on for about 20 minutes. Finally manager/supervisor, came over and she said that they no longer served that and sorry for the confusion. Place is very nice & staff really helpful.

We made reservations for 7pm. When we arrived, the dining room was 20% occupied, but that number went up to 80% by the time left . With that many people in the room, it did get much louder. The service staff was attentive and we never waited for drink or food service. Was it good? When we got in the car to leave, we both had the same feeling....our reservation was in September, for Orlando's 'Magical Dining Month' and we went because we had never been to one of these style restaurants. Our friend said the food at this restaurant was better than the other brand that seems to have a larger number of stores....but we were glad we didn't pay for the 'whole experience.' The Magical menu was an offering of serveral meats, but not the filet. Their house sirloin wasn't bad, but the pork wasn't the best and as expected, the flank steak was VERY tough. Overall, the dining room was nicely decorated, the service was attentive, and for $33 dollars, it wasn't bad, but we were glad we didn't pay for the 'Full Experience.' My other half loves too cook, and basically this was a night off for them. We could have made a much better dinner at home for the $75 dollars.

My husband and I went during Magical Dining Month. For $33 a person, it was a good deal compared to the usual $50. My husband opted for the full meal because he wanted the rib eye and lamb chops not included in the MDM special. Honestly, there was so much food that I don't think we are everything that was offered, so not sure the full vs the special was a good idea! \npros: The salad bar was good, no shortness of food there! The meat was amazing! I couldn't tell you 1/2 of what I ate but there was nothing we didn't like. The wait staff is attentive and friendly. Complimentary valet is nice too. Of course you're going to tip the kid, but since it was raining, we didn't mind at all! Plus it's just nice sometimes! :)\nCons: the drinks were super pricey, my super fruit lemonade was $13. It was pretty noisy, but we never had a problem hearing each other or the waiter. Mostly I was disappointed with dessert- after such a great meal, I would have expected an amazing dessert, not a chocolate mousee cake that tasted like it came from Sams Club. \nOverall, a good time though, we can mark it off of our 'restaurant bucket list'. If you want a lot of food, this is the place for you! Please dress appropriate though- there isn't a specific dress code, but you know it's kind of upscale and lots of tourists were dressed like slobs and it was a turn of, when so many couples were dressed up for a nice night out!

Salad bar was lackluster at best. Meats were average. The carpet was filthy. There was zero ambiance. It feels like you are in a hotel banquet hall.

A couple complaints:\nI don't understand the point of having a reservation, then having to wait 20 minutes for a table. Aren't you supposed to 'reserve' a table when a reservation is made. The bottle of wine that we wanted was not available. The salad bar was missing many of the items and were never refilled. \n\nService was amazing, however. Adrian (I think that was his name) did a great job making sure we had what we needed multiple times. Being a busy night makes it more impressive.

We enjoyed a lovely magical dine night to check out this restaurant. Our waiter initially was not very happy with us when I asked if they could advise which items were dairy and gluten free! After waiting...and finally asking another wait staff, we were greeted by Joan, the Customer Service person and she was AMAZING! She was extremely knowledgeable, gave us a chart for food allergens and even took us to the salad bar to advise which items fit my husband's dietary needs! If they didn't have Joan, the night would of not been a pleasant one. I just wish all waiters realized that food allergens are real and that a little knowledge and assistance is all that is required to help out. Fortunately, Fago de Chao has Joan! There are lots of meat my husband could eat and lots of choices at the salad bar too -- and we were impressed with the quality of it all! We'll be back!

A server came by and asked why their plates were empty . They told him what they were waiting on and he immediately had someone bring it to them. The salad bar was divine and had a great selection.

Compared to the other local Brazilian steakhouses, Fogo had better cuts. Salad Bar was fine too, but I would recommend it for the meats. Bartenders at the Bar were not too personal.

This was the third Fogo I have visited and for the most part it was like the others.

Fogo de chao is a great spot. Compared to other Brazilian steakhouses it definitely has the best service. My only comment will be that the food missed the note a few times. We had a few rounds of our sides and some came out hotter then others. A few of my helpings of rice were a little under done and a few cuts of meat were way over salted. Good thing is though being all you can eat you can help yourself to another plate and hope that one will be better. Still some more attention should be given to prevent a less then satisfying plate.

Maybe due to location ( the strip-International Drive, Orlando FL) but this Fago de Chao location appears to attract - cater to a much different clientele than other branches of this chain. The up scale Golden Coral crowd was in attendance when my business dinner took place this past Wednesday evening. Tilted hats, tee shirts, beach cover-ups, gym shoes and bear feet (really)along with kids running around like they were at one of the attractions were in vogue. Management could control the dress situation if they had a dress code policy, no hats, no shoes, no beach wear no service. \nThe salad bar was not stocked and awful dirty with items spilled everywhere. The meat quality was maybe USDA Choice at best. I say this because the 3 beef cuts I tried were all very tough and I could taste the tenderizer. Desert was extra and at best Sara Lee food service quality. Wine selection was not quality and moderately priced per small pour ($8 to $14 per serving).\nOne positive was the service which was good but unfortunately it could not overcome everything else with this forgetable evening.\nIf you are going to spend $50 per person +drinks, +desert + tip you have many other choices in the area for prime steaks and seafood along with superior service for a memorable evening.

The salad bar items were unique and flavorful. They served a chicken salad that was amazing. The olives are fresh and can't be missed. The experience was great--- servers carve you meats at your selection and to your taste. Come hungry. It was a great place to take your time and enjoy culinary wonders.\n\nThe only downside is that this restaurant is located off I-Drive, where many non-locals go. I welcome non-locals, but Fogo is a fine dining experience that is saved for occasions, and people walking in in shorts and t-shirts screaming to their theme-park worn children certainly detracted from our occasion. Fogo dealt with a long wait by having a large seated waiting area where they passed out cheese breads and diners could order from the bar. The wait did not feel long (although we had reservations). The service was outstanding and food was great quality.\n\nWe might not be back because the atmosphere is not suitable for an elegant night out. Not Fogo's fault, it's just part of the Orlando I-Drive scene. Was a memorable and tasty experience I am glad to have had once.

I went here with my girlfriend and we were very pleased. Hands down the best part of Fogo dining was the barbecue itself, we sampled about 5 of the kebabs and we both agreed they were all delicious, my favorites were her least favorites and vice versa, yet again we still found all the meats delicious. The salad bar was also delicious, with such a wide array of choices, you will be sure to fill up your plate at least once. With the salad bar and the BBQ meats, it already makes it worth while, and that is important because both the Chocolate cake and Key Lime Pie we had for dessert were subpar. \nSure it was expensive, but this was a nice treat, and that is what life should be about, the little things. So to recap, stick to what this place is known for, mouth watering meats! Stick with that and you will not be let down, it won't be my last visit to Fogo.

We have been to this restaurant many times. Once again we had an excellent dining experience and wonderful attentive staff. Yes, Fogo is not a place you would hop over for quick meal. It can get pricey but you can never walk away hungry or not satisfied. If you do your own fault. The salad bar is great in itself. The wait staff assigned keeps it fresh and constantly checks for needed items, and cleans the area. We watched as we sat close to it. Our Gaucho's and waiters were and are always great. Just ask and they do whatever you need. Fogo is a place that revolves around a 'dining experience' . I see negative comments, and that is expected. But after being there 5 times in last 6 months, I can only tell you it has been consistent. One other thing we find refreshing is that the manager 'works' along side the staff. Makes a big impression when a boss will do whatever the staff might be doing. I applaud that and think this should be the norm in any good business. And if you do not enjoy 'meat' you can ask for sea bass, or shrimp cocktails or grilled as an option. Can't say enough about this place. For a special occasion, give it a chance, we think you will like it.

We frequent the competitor of this Brazilian Steakhouse. Because Fogo de Chao is so positively reviewed, we decided to give them a try. We were disappointed. While the service was wonderful, we didn't care for about half of the meat that came to our table, finding it under seasoned and rather 'meh'...much more Golden Corral than Brazilian Steakhouse. We actually had to (gasp) add salt to 3 of the meat cuts. The few bright spots were the Bottom sirloin and Ribs. The polenta on the side was also a welcome treat. Normally we would give a restaurant a second try, but at this price point, we'll take a pass on this one and return to the other Brazilian Steakhouse in town.

I had made a reservation on OpenTable for this restaurant, but got stuck in traffic. I called the restaurant before the time of the reservation to tell them and they said they would make a note. I got there around 30 mins late and they had seemingly lost my reservation by that time and stuck me in the queue with everybody else. It was another 30-40 minutes before I got my table. They also recorded me as a no-show on OpenTable which was not accurate.\n\nOnce we finally got in, the meat was up to the usual great standard, although some items seemed to be a bit in short supply (fillet in bacon) even when asked for specifically from the Gauchos.\n\nIt was a shame about the above as this marred what was otherwise a good evening.

Good food and the wait staff/servers/reception is always on point. Whenever we have a special occasion we make a trip to Fogo. There is something for everyone on menu. The salad bar is wonderful. They keep it stocked and clean. With an emphasis on meats there are also seafood offering for those who would rather go meatless. Give it a try if you haven't already!

Having eaten at five other Fogo's, I can authoritatively say that Orlando's is just not up to par. We were very disappointed with our dining experience, and our concerns mirror many that other reviewers have mentioned: tables way too crowded, almost elbow to elbow with the folks next to us; very loud dining room; the smallest salad bar at any Fogo I've seen; and lack of an enforced dress code. We even saw men in cut- off 'wife beater' tee shirts just a few tables from us. But, by far, our biggest complaint was the horrible failure of the Gaucho service. We commented on three different occasions that there wasn't a single meat server in the entire dining room. Where did they all go? What happened to the continuous service that's typical of other Fogo's? We had to wait several times with our green circle showing for service that was not to be had. And, to add insult to injury, we never we were served all of their 14 (?) meats. By our count, we only were given 7 or 8 choices. Overall, it was a train wreck for what used to be our favorite high end restaurant group.

Had reservations at 6pm on a Saturday and the restaurant was pretty full. \nThere are basically two formulas: Meat + Salad Bar (market table) for $49 or just Salad Bar for 1/2 the price... We were not made aware of the prices of each of these formulas (we knew going in) and this wasn't really displayed on any of the menu we were handed (or hidden somewhere?). Basically the server assumption was that the whole party was going for the $49 menu... so had to rectify the check at the end as one of the guest only had Salad Bar...\nOther than that the food is excellent and the meat is great, salad bar has lots of options (but seemed that after 7 wasn't refilled... no more fruits?). Just be sure to know what meat you want and ask your server for it. \nBasically around 7.30pm we were one of the few tables left.... I know it is Orlando but at a $70/head (w/ alcohol) I would expect to be able to take my time and enjoy the food... \nOverall I would still recommend this restaurant just for the food, make sure you have a light lunch before!

I read so many outstanding reviews and I really wanted to love this restaurant. First impressions are great....beautiful restaurant and wonderful salad bar. The presentation was appealing, fresh beautiful salads as well as cheeses, smoked salmon and salad delights like marinated mushrooms and rich red tomatoes. Rolls brought to the table exploded with flavor\n\nThen the meats started coming. It is nice that they offer a guide. The meats were so disappointing and they were supposed to be the star of the restaurant. They were tasteless to me. Salt helped a little but for the big ticket price I have had much better steak and chicken at more modest restaurants.

It is a great place to take ppl who are from out of town for a new and exciting dining experience. I just wish it were alittle closer to us. Doesn't stop us from going :) \nKeep up good work.

The overall experience at Fogo in Orlando was great. Food was plentiful and delicious, there was a lot of side salads, soup and appetizers. The best asset of this restaurant are its staff. All of them were very respectful, attentive, friendly and competent . We'll check out the other Fogo around the country and hope to get the same treatment. We'll definitely recommend to friends visiting Orlando.

As a party of 9, they served us a lot of meat, but waited 2 hours to fill water. Perhaps if we had opted for mineral water we would have been served more. They tried to add on 8 extra beers. They forgot drink orders. It took forever to get the bill. They obviously know that you will not return and do not care how they treat you. Smiles, but very bad service. They were packed, so they can afford to suck in the service department.

Booked reservation for four through OT and waited 50 minutes to be seated. Hostesses were very pleasant but disorganized. It was during a convention and there were many people dining there that night. That said the availability for four, at that time, was unrealistic.

The food was good and the atmosphere was nice. But you have to be careful,there is one waiter who takes drinks orders that will not give you what you ask for but will bring more expensive wines for you. He brought a 90 dollar wine instead of a 40 dollar wine. You will only realise when you have to pay. The manager will make you pay even if you didn't order it. Overall that experience ruined our night.

This was my first time here and I was pleasantly surprised. We went early (6pm). Which turned out to be a great choice because the service was great, but as the crowd grew, the service declined. There were 8-10 meat selections, each served at your preference of temperature. Endless supply of meat, my husband loved it! Their house cocktail is made with sugar cane alcohol. I loved the lime one it was like a very tasty and strong Margarita. Mashed potatoes and plantains were awesome. Expensive but worth the money!

Fogo de chao, I first was there in Sao paolo. It was fantastic. I was warned not to eat too fast and too much but rather take my time and take it slow. And so I did. One of my companions thought other wise. Boy had he ever had a problem the next day.\nThis is an eating experience which you simply should not miss out on. Marvelous.\nI have visited 7 different fogos accrosss the globe. All fantastic. Special about the one in Orlando is that the staff is even more service oriented. 10 out of 10

Hmm. I was expecting to go into a very nice restaurant and somewhat private and romantic. But I went in to a restaurant that, although it may have been a bit busy, there was plenty of other places to be and we had two servers no more than 5 feet away from us talking their day. The food felt cold a lot of times. And the servers overall where either attacking us one by one in less than 5 minutes (after my date was done eating main course but I wasn't and we were looking at the dessert menu) or not passing by at all (the first 20 minutes we were there that I couldn't order a wine). Overall, I have to say their service didn't feel very genuine. Food was okay didn't feel very fresh and the ambience was not very romantic Or personal. I would not recommend. I will not go back. But if a friend is having a gathering there then I'd attend. However, if they asked me.. a person that has gone...if they should have their gathering there I would say no.

The restaurant is in a high volume traffic location, so give yourself time to get there in time. If you have been to other Fogo de Chao restaurants as I have, they might be more of an upscale environment than this location. This location being next to Disney World had much more families with kids and people in flip flops and swim attire for dining. The dress was much more of a relaxed fit. But, the restaurant had the same high level of food and service. The taste and quality of the food was exceptional. There was even beef ribs available as a surprise meat that was not on the menu. Overall, I had a good experience at the restaurant.

I've been to other Brazilian steakhouses but Fogo is absolutely the tops. Best service, best quality, nicest setting, just really awesome all the way around. Yes, it's expensive but it is absolutely worth it.\n\nI started off by making a booking on OpenTable and when I arrived, I was pleasantly asked if I was ready to be seated now or if I preferred to wait in the bar for the rest of my party. When my friend arrived, we were immediately brought to a nice four-top table with a good view of the salad bar and in the middle of the gaucho 'patrol' area.\n\nYou know, they always say to skip the salad bar and save room for the meats. You'll want to ignore that advice. I made a plate of fresh mozzarella balls, steamed asparagus, hearts of palm, beefy red tomatoes and a heavenly quinoa salad. Great way to kick off the meal.\n\nOkay, lets go! Red card flipped over to green. And that's when the meat parade - or as I call them, 'reverse pirhanas' - start to arrive. Sausages, chicken legs, flank steak, sirloin and more. But the best? Lamb chops and leg of lamb. If you ask really nicely, your waiter will bring you a dish of mint jelly which goes Oh So Well with that lamb. I ate a lot but not enough that I got the meat sweats. Yep, that's a real thing.\n\nDessert. Are you kidding?

Carnivores only need apply. Actually that's not completely true since there is an awesome cold salad bar with lots of veggies but you come for the grilled meats, carved to order at your table. I've been to a number of Brazilian restaurants and this was about the best. The various meats (tenderloin, filet, ribeye, pork, chicken, sausages and lamb) were nicely seasoned and perfectly grilled. Excellent!

While waiting in the bar, the noise level was so high that we were about to go outside, when we were called to our table. The food and service were great. We booked Fogo de Chao, and Texas de Brazil on back-to-back nights. We found the food to be comparable, but the service was not nearly as attentive as Fogo de Chao. We had to constantly ask the meat servers for assistance because of the lack of table servers at Texas de Brazil. We will book Fogo after this experience.

We were visiting orlando and had heard about Texas de Brazil, a friend said to us the Fogo de Chao was a thousand times better. And they were right. Service was amazing, you could never want for something. Our wine was being poured as we were drinking it, servers were all very friendly and would explain any and everything you asked. \nThe customer service manager came to our table and spoke with us explaining the difference between Fogo and Texas de Brazil, she was right. Things are just fresher at Fogo and taste much better.
