Totally worth the price! There literally were two things I could NOT have! Two! Celiac heaven! I haven’t eaten at a buffet since being diagnosed 6 years ago.

This is the first place I’ve eaten at since my celiac diagnosis that I felt 100% safe eating. They handed me a list of allergens as soon as I said I was celiac so I would know what I could and couldn’t eat. The “couldn’t eat” list was TINY. I would definitely recommend this place.

The staff is incredible. There are only a few gluten containing items. The Brazilian cheese bread bites and mashed potatoes really are amazing!

Always a treat to go to Fogo de Chao! It feels so great to be able to eat off of a buffet and enjoy so many types of their excellent meat without worry! Also amazing service :)

We have multiple food allergies in our family in addition to celiac. The food manager came to our table himself and gave us a highlighted list to make our selections easier. He brought my daughter specific food she could eat so she wouldn't feel left out, and He also came to check on us multiple times thru the meal and happily answered all of our questions with a smile. Amazing service, fabulous food, and completely worth the price!

Definitely celiac friendly. The bread served in the building is naturally gluten free and endless. Such a special treat to have a nice meal without worry. Great service, avoid peak times or be sure to make a reservation.

AMAZING. Only 2 items had gluten. Celiac friendly and knowledgeable staff. One lunch, including tip, was $30. Very well priced for the incredible quality. I highly recommend it!

This place is amazing! It's pricey, so definitely best for special occasions, but almost all of the food is gluten-free and delicious. The manager brought me a detailed allergen guide which was helpful. I tried many different things on the buffet, meats etc. and had no reaction after eating there.

This restaurant was amazing! There is only 3 items that are Not gluten-free. They bring you bread to the table that is Gluten-free. Many meat options and huge buffet. It is most expensive but worth it for any special night out.

This restaurant is a real experience but very expensive. This is fixed price all you can eat concept restaurant. Everything including fresh popovers except three items are gluten free. The salad bar very extensive and outstanding. Every kind of meat is freshly carved at your plate if you want it. I felt many of the meats were tough but some like the roast beef and steak were very good. Best of all I am a very sensitive celiac and did not get sick in spite of the fact I probably ate 20 - 25 different foods. I was wowed by the freshly baked gluten free popovers. I would return to the restaurant just for them.

As said by other reviewers, almost completely GF. Unbelievably excellent service (thanks to head waiter Ben), amazing food, and GF bread that is brought to your table is to die for. YES! I ate bread that tasted good. As a celiac, I was in heaven the entire evening. Can't wait to return.

Knowledgable and attentive staff, unique dining experience, and delicious gluten free food! Almost all food offered is naturally gluten free, the only no-nos are the French bread and 1 or 2 pasta salads on the salad buffet and one of the chicken meats, but with so many other options, you'll be too stuffed with all the tasty sides, meats and salad options, you won't be missing anything!

We came to celebrate a birthday after calling ahead to make sure they have GF options. The waitress was very kind and patient, and double checked the information to make sure she got it right. We were happy to learn almost the entire salad bar was safe, as are all meats except for one kind. There was also a wide variety of deserts that are GF - everything they make in house. Overall we had a great experience and no symptoms.

My daughter and I are celiac. We had a great experience. The food was delicious and the staff was super knowledgeable. They printed a list of gluten free items which was most of the menu. I highly recommend it.

They were very helpful and knew about celiac. They said to stay away from the chicken legs and sausage. Sausage doesn’t have gluten but could be cross contaminated because it touches the chicken. Everything else was gluten free. Very yummy!

Great place! Left stuffed!
