As a couple with discerning palates, one especially so given near weekly fine dining patron as a world traveler the food @ Fogo was beyond underwhelming. The regular salad bar and additional Thanksgiving buffet were not impressive...bland potato salad yet the chicken salad was decent, the fruits were of mixed freshness with the rest simply unmentionable. The Braxilian sausage stuffing... More

I have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. The $50+ per person price seems a lot, but since it is all you can eat, it is a value for a family with big appetites. I try to bring my wife and sons here at least once a year. Not recommended for first dates. She'll just be pushing... More

I really like Fogo, however, the grilled meats are all beginning to taste the same, and no, I didn't have a cold. Seems like they threw on the same seasonings on every piece of beef and if they didn't have different textures, you couldn't tell the difference by the flavor. The sausages and the chicken and the parmesan encrusted beef... More

Had a business dinner of 5 on a Tuesday night. None of us had ever been there before. The experience was great. The food was terrific and the service was amazing! Better go hungry because you'll want to try everything!! We will go back.

I have been to several of this type of restaurant and this one did not stand out. The food was good however the service was on the slow side.

My daughter and I went for lunch. We had the salad buffet. It is very impressive. Hugh quality foods. Delicious! Not expensive. Right in the heart of downtown Minneapolis Minnesota. You won't be disappointed.

The concept is okay for an extreme meat eater or for a 'bucket list' experience but I found the continual presentation of meat excessive.

I finally took my meat loving daughter to a Brazilian restaurant! TdB has always been my go-to but being in Minneapolis for the weekend we made reservations at Fogo. This daughter eats gluten free & dairy free... The wait staff, manager & kitchen were AMAZING! They MADE her a batch of dairy free mashed potatoes as soon as the found... More

This restaurant was a real treat and incredibly delicious. A unique experience and highly recommended, however, be sure to save a lot of room before hand because you will be overwhelmed otherwise. They provide a free dessert if it's your birthday as well!

Thank ellyrie
