Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse - Rosemont
Asked for iced tea and water with meal. Was trying to explain to waiter that I wanted simple ice water with lemon. Was brought mineral water and charged $5. Was not pleased.
Overall, our party of 4 had a nice time celebrating my daughter's 21st birthday. The staff was very courteous and friendly from beginning to end. They have a large selection of fine wines and other alcoholic beverages. There was also a nice spread of salad bar items to choose from. The only issue we had was that most the meat they brought to you was way too fatty and grisly for our liking.
Great dinning and great food !
Horrible experience. I've been to Fogo many times before and I've never had horrible service like I did tonight. We asked for sides and certain cuts of meat multiple times and were left waiting long times. Asked for Ribeye midway through our meal and it came while we were paying our tab. I let the manager know about the horrible service but by then it was too late and his attitude seemed like he didn't really care. Definitely won't be back to this location. 0 stars
We did the Brazilian special and it was delicious. More than enough food at the salad bar, and we do wish that there were more choices of meat. I know that the ribeye was not included and I feel that it should’ve been.
Overall the food is decent. The problem is that although you pay for prime cuts of meat (ribeye and filet), there are only a few people that actually serve these cuts. I literally waited for an hour to get one serving of the ribeye (which is my favorite), but was too full to actually enjoy it. While waiting for the best cuts to come around, I thought I would try small samples of the other offerings. This will make you full very quickly and honestly the lower cuts of meat aren't that great. Plus, as the people serving each cut of meat walk around, the meat cools off. It's still warm, but a medium rare cut is not served at the best tempature to enjoy it. Lastly, my wife and I weren't drinking, but instead of the typical fountain soda that you get in most restaurants with free refills, they serve 8 ounce glass bottles of diet coke for 3.75 each. So to get roughly the same amount of a single soft drink at a typical restaurant (not including the typical free refills), you're paying $7.50. I hate restaurants that do this. It's price gouging for no reason. I won't go back. I would much prefer to pay for a prime steak perfectly cooked and hot at a steak house than to visit here again.
Disappointed as we asked for specific meats repeatedly and it didn’t come out until one server at the end brought it out for us. It was as at the end of the meal. I pay more to have certain cuts and expect that at the least. The answer I got is it’s busy. Really!!!!
It was okay. I have seen and had better experience at different location.
Great mostly gluten free dining
In general everything was okay. It was not great or exceptional, though. We ordered the regular dinner, not the discount. I asked to have medium-well filet mignon and NY strip steak. It took at least 15min maybe longer. When I finally received it, it was so well done it was terrible. This experience makes me hesitant to return.
It was a holiday however reservations were for 5pm for 4 ppl. We weren’t seated until 5:30 and we arrived early. Once finally seated it took too long for our cocktail order as well as receiving them. A lady going around with colossal shrimp cocktail and aggressively placed one on our table even though we said no! We had to have it removed so we wouldn’t be charged for it! Geezp
My family and I had a wonderful Thanksgiving 2019 feast.
Celebrating 3 birthdays but disappointed by food and mostly by long hair wrapped around a chicken leg!
We dined here for the Taste of Brazil special which was $39 rather than full price. It was definitely worth it! I wouldn't pay the full price but with this deal I'd go again. The food is delicious and it is a lot of fun!
We were celebrating my son’s birthday! The staff was friendly and accommodating. The food was amazing, we love the variety and quality,
Tables are packed together. The salad bar was a mess with many items picked over. Service was marginal at best. Steaks were tasty though.
It was overcrowded, too bright, we were sat a half hour after our reservation. The shrimp they passed around and encouraged you to purchase was translucsent, only two of the meats I tried were actually good. Had a hard time finding the plates for the salad bar. The place is ridiculously expensive for what you get including the price of the drinks. Disaster!!! Never again!
This was one of the worst experiences ever! We were seated in a back corner which normally would be fine and great, but the selection of meets barely made it back to us. We asked multiple times for other cuts to be brought over eventually they made it. The meat was mostly overcooked. We had to ask 4 times for the bread and sides that normally come to the table to be brought to us. At the end the manager came by and apologized and gave us some extra things on them but at that point we were over it. It was a nice thought but we will not ever be back. Also, the bathroom was beyond disgusting. The floor in the restaurant also looked dirty. They had a carpet that was shedding all over. Very gross. The restaurant is also extremely loud. We have been to other locations and have never had this experience. We will never be back to this location.
Awful, uncoordinated and organized check in area. Just bad. They really should get a hostess stand and actually have hostesses greeting people. I understand it’s overwhelming, but customers need to be greeted and guided.
Great atmosphere, with amazing amounts of delicious meats. Can’t wait for the next time I visit.
Very busy on a Friday night. Meat was a bit slow coming to tables and I think there was meats we never saw. I didn’t care but many of the meats were rare which my friends didn’t like. We all still managed to get our meat fill so it worked out.
Our server Angel was awesome!! Very attentive, very professional.
We had a great experience. Staff was very attentive and very quick with bringing the meat by. The meats that we had were great. The only reason I didn’t give five stars to the food and value was that it didn’t seem like there was as much selection as usual, there was a lot of repeat of the meats that came. After we were full we saw about four different kinds of meats go to other tables that had never come by and we were disappointed we didn’t get to try them.
Great food with great friends. Amazing restaurant with great staff. The renovations are beautiful. Meat heaven, fantastic cocktail and wine selections. Really special place to spend time with friends and family.
Had a very good selection of meats, would come again! The environment was a bit crazy as there were hoards of people due to a convention going on, but still got my fair share of cuts
My partner and I have our monthly date at Fogo De Chao at Rosemont. This time, our dinner was nothing short of amazing. The service was phenomenal! While we have attended other Fogo De Chaos, Rosemont is by far our favorite. Matt, Ting, and Frank were very attentive and made our monthly date, perfect. We cannot wait for our dinner date in December! I am hoping Matt, Ting, and Frank are working the night we have our date night. Thank you!!
We waited almost an hour to get our sides after asking.
Most of the meats were way too salty, some gauchos seemed annoyed to be working. Overall I did not have a good experience
Great service wonderful experience
food was just ok.. seemed like a glamorous salad bar with a large selection of protein. some of the meat was outstanding, but I'd much rather go to a steak house. Just seemed kinda weird to us.
Fogo is a favorite! We come whenever we are in the area!
Always a great meal at Fogo, good for when traveling.
The food was excellent, but the staff seemed overwhelmed and overworked without a lot of focus. Considering what we were paying, I’m not sure we got our money’s worth.
Some things were very very good ! Try the polenta, cheese bread and fried cheese. I think the fried cheese could be a hit as a desert treat.
Our server Kiersten was great. The meats that came around always seemed the same. Your place was busy it didn’t seem u could keep up. Kiersten was great and accommodating. Make sure to have all the meats hit the table. Half the times they kept on passing by walking to other tables. I come here several times a year and also refer business. So I hope this isn’t the norm moving forward
The staff is really friendly and personnel come by really often with different selections of food.
The food is very good here. The service is excellent. My only complaint is that although the caipirinh's are very good, they charge $15 each. That's a little high for a cocktail that has a lot of ice. One of the gauchos, Frankie, was particularly very friendly and very good at his job.
The food was so fresh and offered many options. The service was attentive and friendly. The wine selection was fantastic. The cake I had was so good. My overall dining experience was very pleasant!
