I had to travel to SP for work and had the opportunity to eat at Fogo with a customer. I've eaten at the Fogo de Chao restaurants in other cities/countries and the quality is always (at least in my experience) excellent. If you love meat and enjoy trying different types of cuts and types of meats then this is a... More

This is a good restaurant and you will get good food and a nice ambiance, but in a city like SP with tens of better choices I recommend doing your research and keeping this as plan B.

Great Place to have dinner with Friends or collegues, pricy but good buffett and Great meat.

A significantly down scaled Fogo. DON'T waste your money, you'll be disappointed. The food was good, but the salad bar was barely worth visiting.

Classic Brazilian dinner of meat, meat, meat. Very large restaurant that was full by 9pm. Excellent service from start to finish. Fantastic choice of wine to suit all tastes and pockets. The salad bar is extensive and well presented. The choice of meat is excellent I doubt anybody leaves here without eating too much

It is indeed an Experience. Great meat, attentive waiters and elegant space. But for foreigners, watch out!! Nothing is courtesy. I went there with german friends and they didn't ask for Port wine, but they came to the table and served a glass each. As my friends thought it was courtesy, and don't understand portuguese, they accepted. All in all,... More

It had been a while since my last visit to São Paulo and I was looking forward to eat at this restaurant. Overall, I found the experience to meet my expectations. Great atmosphere, dedicated service, great salad bar, good wine choices and above all the great choice of Brazilian meats. Enjoyable evening.

We have always looked up to this place as a superior experience when looking for a Churrascaria. We were very disappointed at the quality of the rodízio. Food was less than average. My wife was disappointed that only "standard" meats made it to our table. The exceptional cuts never made it to our table. I am a vegetarian, and only... More

Me and my family went to fogo de chao steakhouse at Bandeirantes Ave a couple of weeks ago. That was by far the best meat we had lately. Also, the service was first class, and the price was fair, as we could eat as much as we liked. I will get back as soon as I can!

For the price per person that Fogo de Chão charges it is not a place worth going. Meat is ok. Nowadays, there are many specialty meat restaurants that are much better. When they serve you the rodizio and you wish to eat it with a side order, it takes forever to come. Extremeley expensive for what you get.

Thank Christina R
