Steak wasn’t good compared to other places I’ve been
Service left and didn’t notify anyone; our table sat clueless for 30min

Manager came and made us the most amazing sangria I’ve ever had

Our new server was just the best

All in all the food was just bit good for the price
Wouldn’t recommend

Fleming’s or Texas de Brazil are better

Valet parking was #5, which I would suggest since you will park in the same garage anyway for probably more. We made a reservation and only had to wait a few minutes since we arrived early. Jaime took care of and provided exceptional service, and even suggested some good drinks to try. All the food was really good, but the price was about $50 a person. I would have liked it to be a little cheaper of course, but it was really good, flavorful, all kinds of cuts of meats, and I was full when I left. Will be back.

The salad bar was awesome. Nice selection and great choices. We had to keep our server Daniel, track down the meat servers to come to our table as we were seated in a corner. The wait made me lose my appetite. Overall, we managed to enjoy our evening as it was my son’s birthday. We would come back again.

In terms of quality of the proteins, I'd still say go to EddieV's or Morton's, but the service and ambience more than made up for it. Great time.

The service was extremely sub par, several of my friends and I were skipped regardless of having our coaster on green, took over 10 minutes to get drinks and some were forgotten and the food was extremely subpar compared to the last few times i was there. in addition to this, we did not get most cuts of meat to our table which was incredibly disappointing.

We’ve been there several times with my friends usually about once a month, but this recent experience unfortunately didn’t live up to our previous ones. One thing to point out the first thing we asked for when we sat down was to please get some of the beef ribs and they actually were the last things to come out right as we were having our dessert, so needless to say we didn’t enjoy it because we were already full by the time they came out, and we had to keep reminding the servers constantly about it

Fogo had great meats and an extensive salad bar as always! Service was so-so though. Asked our waiter and the servers 5-6 times over the course of the meal for the filet mignon. Never got it. It was always "going to be a few more minutes." Also, our server put two bottles of someone else's wine on our tab in addition to the bottle we had. Should have been an easy catch before bringing us the bill.

Not recommended for Brazilian steakhouse experience. Waiters are inexperienced, intrusive, lack a knack for service. Plates, glasses and dishes cleared off unfinished and left us feeling as if we were being rushed out. The waiter serving our wine broke the cork, and he was chewing gum...?!
Food is fatty, oversalted and cheap cuts of meat. Salad bar is filled with cucumber slices and canned veggies - very low quality and highly oversalted.
GM didn't come by once. A floor manager with stains on her shift and ill-fitting clothes (way too small) checked in on us as she was walking past.
They need serious direction and help on elevated the customer experience, and not close to being worth $57/pp.

I love Brazilian steakhouses and have always been very happy with Fogo de Chao's downtown Washington DC location. This was my first visit to the new location in Tysons Corner. The new restaurant is beautifully decorated, open, and airy. The food was very good, as usual. The service was lacking however. The staff were perfectly pleasant but there were not enough of them. At the price charged by Fogo, service ought to be top notch. This was not the case for our visit. It may well be that the company is struggling to find workers so our visit may have been an anomaly. I will also mention that after a time it seemed as though the gauchos carrying the meats decided we had had enough and all but stopped coming by. Again, considering the price charged, I find that totally unacceptable. I will go back again -- no question about it. Hopefully next visit will be up to par.

I wouldn’t recommend going here for the salad bar dining experience as it hardly rates paying $30.00 for a salad bar. The feijoada was overly salted and inedible. No seafood or fruits with the exception of pineapple. For someone who enjoys drinking coke, they charge for every serving without first telling you. It’s a very nice dining room but it was extremely noisy. Parking is $5 to the valet which I suppose is reasonable but parking used to be free. The Pao de queso was passable. I wouldn’t return.
