Fogo de Chão Brazilian Steakhouse | Back Bay | Boston, MA

i jus wanted to do a quick pictureless review on Fogo de Chão. i didnt bring my camera and my phone died on me. yea one of those days. sorry guys!

anyway, i went to fogo de chão for dinner. its a brazilian steakhouse in back bay. they have locations across the nation. very professional staff and very well organized restaurant. i was pretty impressed by how good the service was. very attentive, professional, and accommodating. the restaurant is very well organized. everything is well designed for a smooth/pleasure dinning experience. everything is sparkling clean. i rarely see wine glasses this sparkling clean at restaurants.

the food was not bad per se. im not a red meat person, so i probably couldnt appreciate the meat as much. plus, i was hungover with the worst headache ever, had no sleep the night before. they do have a variety of meat to choose from. like most brazilian bbq places, the gauchos come around to your table and slice the meat for you right at your table. nothing really interested me at the salad bar. none of the meat i had was spectacular tho especially for the price. i think i liked the lamb better than the steaks. its probably just my personal preferences. i couldnt get enough of the caramelized plantains and cheese bread tho. it’s all you can eat meat, but they charge extra for desserts and drinks. they also have a pretty extensive selection of wine. i forgot which wine we got, but i really didnt like it.

bottom line:
great for groups and a pleasant dining experience, but the food itself is underwhelming for the price you pay. maybe lunch would be a better deal. i dont think i will return tho.

  1. I’ve gone to the one in Minnesota a couple times, and personally I love it! I don’t know if the quality of the Boston Fogo is lower or if it’s just a preference thing, but I’ve enjoyed myself every time. As for price, I think one just needs to make sure they go DURING LUNCH; prices is high enough as it is there, let alone the dinner mark-up.
    But yeah, keep getting nicely-cooked meat, pile on the plantains and polenta, and get some nice chunks of parmesan and cured meat from the Salad Bar (only good thing about it, but it works). Ends up quite the experience.

  2. Can a non-meat eater really do justice to menu side of a restaurant that is especially known for serving various meets? But one can and you did on the atmosphere, professionalism side. I love Brazil, and their food. So thank you for this review.

  3. My wife and I went to a Brazilian meat place once.
    It may have been the most expensive dinner I have ever had.
    I thought that it was a pretty good dinner and think that I would like to try another one.
    A funny thing was my wife didn’t flip her meat card over fast enough and she ended up with about five pounds of meat on her plate !!
