Atlanta >Fogo De Chao Churrascaria
“One thing though if you are looking for a quiet romantic spot that is where it is lacking.”
“ended my meal with a slice of key lime pie so rich and decadent, I told my girlfriend that I needed a minute to compose myself.”
“Authentic food and service (although having to traipse to a salad bar is a very American alteration; in Brazil, they typically bring it all to your table on a million little plates.)”
“recommend that if you have a group of 5 or more that you will definitely enjoy your meal here.”
“There is a good variety of meats and the stop and go signs are unique.”
“If you have ever been to a really nice restaurant, then stared unknowingly at the menu, then this place is for you.”
“Great food, atmosphere, but bad service.”
“Excellent value for the money.”
“The food was excellent, the service was quick and fast”
Great place for lunch!!! The lamb was perfect!
We wanted to try something different for a special occasion, and we weren't let down. Yes, this is on the expensive side, but it was well worth it. Come with a big appetite.
Good but expensvie. This place is really good, but it's pretty expensive and you only get your money's worth if you are a really big eater.
Good Food. The food was very good but I found this place to be a bit on the expensive side
To quote my girlfriend when we sat down: "Ew. Let's leave."
I admit at first, I was worried too. It smelled like Chinese food in this place - yes, Chinese food. The waitresses were eating their lunch at the front of the restaurant when we walked in. Without standing up, one of them smiled and pointed to a table at the back.
The restaurant was empty, despite a handmade sign that said: "Line moves quickly!" Perhaps we mistimed our meal, showing up for breakfast at noon. Either way, the menu offers mostly breakfast foods including omelets, bacon, pancakes, and my favorite: eggs benedict.
I ordered the California eggs benedict and my girlfriend got the Crab eggs benedict. Within ten minutes our waitress delivered our meal. We were happily surprised. The plate was nicely made up. My eggs benedict had large, fresh slices of avocado and fresh grilled turkey. My girlfriend's eggs benedict had heaps of real crab meat, topped with capers.
The hollandaise sauce was buttery and rich and the eggs perfectly cooked. We noticed that my plate was garnished with a lemon wedge while my girlfriend's came with an orange slice. It was a small detail, but showed that they actually care about how they present their dishes here.
We repeatedly noted how tasty the food was, and how wrong we were to prejudge the experience.
Having said this, the place would probably have netted a higher score had the ambiance been nicer. Still, who am I - a tourist - to waltz into a place that is clearly liked by the locals and ask that place to change? If you are a tourist like me, you should be happy that a place like this exists at all. Two blocks from the Prescott Hotel on Post St. sits a great little place for breakfast.
Delicious but Bustling.
The food was delicious, but the bustle around the table made it impossible to relax. I felt that I constantly had to be responding to the waiters who were almost too attentive and would come over whenever my plate was empty, regardless of whether I had the red or the green side of my disc showing.
I did enjoy every piece of meat I tried and though the side plates were limited, they were very tasty. I especially liked the mashed potatoes. The highlight of the meal for my boyfriend was the bowl of bacon on the salad bar.
I'm not sure I would go back because though the food was good, there are other delicious places for much less expense which are much more relaxing.
Very Disappointed. Based on the reviews, I felt we would have a wonderful family celebration dinner - but I was sadly disappointed in the flavor and tenderness of the meats. The ribs had the consistency of dry sawdust, the sirloin was so tough we could not chew it. we asked the servers for more tender slices, but we got the same awful selections. Maybe we had a cook in training that Saturday night. It certainly was not worth the $575 + $81 automatically billed gratuity. I wish I had asked for a refund, but did not want to make a scene and ruin the end of a wonderful day for my family.
Great Place to take a male friend. This restaurant has a fantastic salad bar and the meat is always exceptional. I enjoy eating here with friends who have a large appetite, that way they can really get their moneys worth! Love the atmosphere and the staff, who are always on top of their game
AWESOME BRAZILLIAN FOOD. This was great .. a little expensive for family.. but if you want a great date night take a $100 with you and enjoy the best Brazilian food in Atlanta worth every cent, this is not a bring your kids kind of restaurant, so leave the whiny babies at home.. the rest of us on our nights off do not want screaming and yelling and acting out when we are paying this kind of money.
Stuffed To The Brim!. I just went there last night, and I still feel full from the meal. The best steak I think I've ever eaten and it just keeps coming out of there kitchen. I had heard about this place for a while, but going to experience the true Gacho, as awesome, I'll definitely be going back there.
