Visited Fogo de Chao on Wynkoop during a recent business trip and had a wonderful experience. Everyone was kind, the atmosphere and energy were positive, and the food options were endless. While the staff did not have readily available knowledge about what may or may not contain gluten, Renato F. (one of our servers), was very quick to obtain an allergen menu and speak with the chef about each dish that came into question. I felt very safe and walked away with a full happy tummy! They even had GF Brazilian cheese bread, caramelized bananas & polenta as an appetizer, GF sides (garlic mashed potatoes), and a very delicious GF dessert, Papaya Cream (a house specialty apparently). I would definitely visit again and eat with confidence. I highly recommend!

This restaurant mainly serves buffet style. MOST of the items on the buffet are gluten free, but they include regular French Bread which creates cross contamination potential for the entire food bar. Some desserts have gluten. The items on the food bar are not labeled for ingredients or allergens.

I asked if anything was not gluten free, and told 2 waiters I had celiac. I was served the chicken which apparently is marinated in regular beer. No serious reaction but that is abysmal.

The food was very good, overall.

As far as service, we had a remarkably terrible experience given that this is a fancy restaurant. We were given no direction his to start the meat ‘experience’ and 2 of us sat while one ate her fish. 3/4 of the sides simply ever came out, which we only realized when someone brought a plate of mashed potatoes after we were 90% done. Server kept assuming guest, who we were treating for a special occasion, was getting the bill, and addressed him about wine cost 2-3 times. The server blamed the kitchen and argued with us when we said we had issues with never getting our sides. It was so bad I think I forgot a flaw or two. Oh, and we waited so long for the bill our guest had to leave from the table.

The combination of high prices, awful service, and being served food with gluten means I am highly unlikely to return to this location. The fact that it’s 95% gf means I’ll probably try another location some day.

Staff is knowledgeable about gluten items and will prepare gluten free if requested

One of the only places I can go for some fantastic table breads. Their bread is made from rice and tapioca flour and is amazing.

Awesome salad bar!

There are only two things in the restaurant with gluten: beer marinated chicken, and bread they don’t bring to your table and keep segregated from the veggie/salad bar. You’d think that would be enough, but they also have warm cassava flour and cheese rolls that are simply. AMAZING. The only downside? $$$$$

The food was great. But as in all you can eat establishment, it's quite expensive unless you come with a huge appetite. They have an extensive allergen menu that they can bring to the table, and my server seem to be pretty knowledgeable about what has gluten. I ate here without any issues.

My favorite restaurant! I have celiac disease and it is extremely safe. Everything is gluten free except for one bread & perhaps one or two salads. I go for lunch and have the Market Table filled with a wide variety of salads, fresh fruits and veggies, hummus, cheeses, cured meats & salmon. There's also rice, beans with sausage, and seasonal soup. They also bring garlic mashed potatoes, caramelized bananas, crispy polenta, and Brazilian cheese bread to your table. You can also add the table service of the continuously served fire roasted meats.

Everything is gluten free except for the black bean soup and the Italian bread. The self serve market bar is all gluten free. Their cheese bread which is brought to the table is delicious and gluten free. I ordered sea bass which was soft and buttery. My wife ordered salmon which was slightly overcooked. The roasted broccoli was undercooked and we sent it back. Everything else was good. My grandson ordered meat which he enjoyed.

My mom and I went here during our NYC trip. We both were pretty hungry and wanted meat and salad. I was blown away at the salad bar- so many fresh and clean options! They also bring out little cheese breads to the table that are GF as well as fried polenta which is GF. Then you can have as much meat as you’d like which was all GF. I think there was maybe only one thing on the whole food bar that wasn’t GF. Waiter was knowledgeable and I didn’t get sick! Wonderful variety
