Manager came out and talked to us about what we can and cannot have. Could eat pretty much everything except for the chicken thighs. Manager told the staff when cutting the meat for us to bring a clean knife to cut with. We could even eat the Cheese bread! One of the places where I feel I don’t need to worry about what I’m eating!

Most meats are gluten free except for some chicken which is marinated in beer. Brazilian cheese bread is delicious and gluten free (made with cassava flour). Some locations have an allergy menu that is very detailed. Mashed potatoes and rice is also gluten free. Almost everything is gluten free. Great experience, but a little pricy

I'm giving this a 4 because they did a great job gluten free wise. Paul, the manager, was fantastic - he understood allergies and ensured we were taken care of. For the restaurant overall I'd give the restaurant a 3. We were at Fogo de Chao in Washington DC 6 months ago and their restaurant was much better. I felt like the restaurant in Chicago skimped a bit - the meat didn't come to our table as frequently and we ordered Caipirinha and we were asked if we wanted the premium / smoother version and we said no - just regular. There was not much alcohol in the ones we received. One of us lived in Brazil and knows how they should taste. They were perfect in Washington. For a $200 meal for 4, it should be perfect,

This is probably my favorite restaurant. My husband and I always take a trip downtown for my birthday so we can have dinner here. Even before I went GF. It is a meat-lover's paradise. They are incredibly accommodating. Just notify your server that you need to eat GF and they send the manager over to let you know what very few things you should not eat. When I went, the only things I couldn't eat were the salad dressings (because they are not made in house and therefore they cannot guarantee their safety), a pasta salad on the salad bar, and chicken that is marinated in beer. EVERYTHING else is safe to eat: HUGE and delicious salad bar (I use balsamic vinegar in place of the dressing), endless amounts of meats, fried polenta, caramelized bananas, mashed potatoes, and best of all the Brazilian cheese bread. In my opinion, this place is simply the best.

Amazing place! Almost entire menu is truly GF even the rolls. Tell your waitstaff that you are GF and they will send the manager over. He explained all the ingredients and food prep. So knowledgeable and friendly. The food was amazing and the service outstanding.

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!

Called in an order and was told it would be ready in 5-10 minutes. Arrived 15-20 minutes later and it still wasn’t ready. Had to wait 15 minutes and the hostess was not helpful at all. Manager finally came out since I communicated to everyone I was in a rush and a car was waiting for me outside. He offered a promo for their mistakes. Disappointed with their service.

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!
