One of my favorite restaurants of all time. If you are a carnivore you will love this place. Come hungry since there is an overabundance of food and each selection is better then the previous one. Pace yourself so you can enjoy the experience.

Amazing. Food was insane. Great experience. I've had Fogo de Chão in IL, AZ and CA along with other Brazilian Restaurants. This tops it.

Really great experience - the dining process is a bit different than what you may be accustomed to - and the explanation given of a rodizio was brief and probably not enough if you are unfamiliar. Basically, you pay a fixed price for a combination self-serve buffet (largely seafood and salads), followed by table service of a bevy of meat varieties. Note - it should be clearly labeled, but again, most drinks, desserts, and a la carte side dishes are added as a premium and not included in the fixed price. Now, moving on to the ambiance and atmosphere - there is a certain hustle and bustle, that makes is more familiar and genial, and the entire wait staff was courteous and efficient in making sure we were properly served. Finally, and most importantly, the food was really good - the most important part is timing the buffet, and choosing little pieces as a taste rather than large filling portions - by the time you make it to the meat it already begins to feel a bit like a challenge, so be forewarned. Great experience overall, really enjoyed the food and the experience, would highly recommend.

This Brazilian steakhouse is without a doubt the best in the city. The quality of the food is outstanding. Variety of meats run the gamut of tasty offerings. The trick to eating at one of these restaurants is pacing yourself so as not to fall in to a meat coma. The servers will stop by with whichever type of meat they are carrying - there are usually 4-5 different meats - different cuts of beef, sausages, pork etc - on the floor at any given time and are rotated through as the chefs finish preparing the next one. The servers come around with the meat on long skewers and carve on to your plate - allowing you to pick the temperature - so if you like rare or well done, or the skin or center cuts you can instruct and receive. Eat a good amount then flip the little green coaster to red and take your time. The buffet that is included has all sorts of other things including sushi, variety of salads, soups and vegetables. A meal here should be an adventure - try everything and go back for the ones you really enjoy. And don't forget to try the mojitos.

My family and I initially started going to a related restaurant on Long Island but found out about this location after the other closed. With a great decor and atmosphere, you can enjoy the large salad bar as well as the endless types of meat served at your table. The sides included are equally delicious, especially the fried banana. For the meat, choose rarer pieces as the ends tend to be well cooked. Also, don't be afraid to ask for a certain type of meat as they'll bring it to your table (Note: Ask for the bacon wrapped filet mignon!). To accompany the meal, their red sangria is strong and just the right amount of sweet. Be prepared for a pricey meal as the cost is $60+ per person, which excludes drinks and dessert.
