I went here for a company function and had resigned myself to getting sick. I was pleasantly surprised that the buffet had the cheese and meats on the totally opposite side from the bread, which was by the salads. At the buffet I chanced tiny pieces of the prosciutto, papaya and star fruit. The tropical fruits weren’t ripe so I didn’t end up finishing these.

I signaled the waitress of my allergy and she brought out a detailed allergen list. This list showed most of the meats as having soy, which I worried was soy sauce. Though overwhelmed by our party of 16, the waitress eventually brought me the manager who took a trip to consult the chef who told me most meats were simply rubbed in lemon pepper and no soy sauce was involved.

Based on the advice of the waitress and manager, I tried several types of lamb and beef and did not get sick. For drinks I had Caipirinhas. Though they were listed as wheat free I did not try the Pão de queijo, which were prepared in a kitchen that also prepared bread. For dessert I wanted to try the flan, but they were “out” (I saw it being served to other tables, so they must have just run out) and was given vanilla ice cream.

Overall this restaurant did a great job taking care of me and keeping me safe on a very busy night.

So much food, we had great time here and left sooo full. A fun spot for the family, endless cuts of meat and salad bar. The rolls are safe, meats are safe, a few items on salad bar that we were warned of ( bread items). We had no reactions, nice lunch here.

Great experience here, told them of my allergy and they brought me a list of everything and their allergens: gluten was only in a few things! Safe buffet, all the meats except the tofu but I didn’t even see that. Highly recommended. All you can eat is $66 which seems like a great deal!

Mostly everything here was gluten free. I was hesitant at first and took some precautions, but everything was great. If you haven’t eaten this style before, they come around to your table with a slab of meat and slice off a portion if you want to try it. There are several meats that are not gluten free, but there were more than enough options without it. I was skeptical of the buffet, but [at least on the night I was there] almost everything on the table was gluten free. I stood there and watched it for 5 minutes before deciding it was worth it to check out a couple items. Taking off a star for safety due to the waitstaff; somewhat knowledgeable, but also apathetic and not willing to get answers very quickly (like 30 minutes into the meal when everyone else was already eating). My primary complaint was the servers — one was a little weird encouraging us to drink and drive (we did not, of course), and one just did not help at all. We went somewhat close to the opening and seemed like a decent amount of turnover with the waitstaff, so perhaps it was a logistical issue and has since improved. I had a vegetarian friend who went and found plenty to eat to hang with her family, but I’m not sure I would recommend that for the price point. I did not get sick, and was very full :)

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

After reading the reviews here, I was a bit concerned but I had a great experience! The waiter immediately brought me a menu with all allergens when I mentioned I had celiac. There were only 2 things being served in the entire buffet that had gluten. Very few things I had to avoid. The little bread they put on the table are also gluten free and delicious! I ate a lot and had no reaction.

This was a great experience. So often restaurants with a particular ‘experience’ to them (ex. Hibachi, hot pot, etc) are not GF safe, so it was really fun to eat here.

All of the proteins are gf. The only non-gf menu items are the baguette style bread at the salad bar and one of the salads had croutons. The cheesy bread that is brought to the table is GF. There is a large dessert menu, but I did not ask if any are gluten free.

The wait staff is very knowledgeable and kind. I would definitely go back!

I went here for my boyfriend’s birthday and talked with the waiters about what would be safe for me. They assured me that there were only 2 items that had gluten, pointed them out, and provided me a list of items that could be cross contaminated. I was very impressed and felt extremely safe dining here! Delicious food as well- bottomless gluten free bread rolls for each table!

When the server told us they updated their menu and practices such that the entire menu (including buffet, cheese poofs and all meat) were GF (with exception of Italian bread that is sequestered), we were blown away! Had an incredible time and ate so so much food. We freaked out that our celiac could actually eat at and enjoy a buffet—so cool! Everything was delicious — especially loved the corn salad, potato salad, cheese poofs and strip steak! Highly recommend! (PS Desserts are prepared outside facility and do contain gluten —but you’ll be so full from dinner that dessert is not even possible!)

Another Fogo de Chao location in OC! We went and it was just as delicious as the other locations. All but a couple of chicken dishes are gf from the churasco menu, the hot sides that come with it are all gf (mashed potatoes, Yuka fries, fried plantains) and the bread is gf brazi bites. The market table is all gf accept the beans and wheat bread.

Almost everything (other than a handful of obvious items) is gluten free. Rolls at the table are tapioca (like Brazi bites) and gluten free. Love the fact that you can basically eat everything at the all you can eat buffet and it is gluten free. You can pick and choose and eat as much as you like and eat all the different meats they bring to your table (chicken, steak, pork, sausage, etc.) and they are all gluten free.

To start off - I have a gluten detection service dog, I read reviews on other chain locations in the GF app. We went for an event in our own room so I’m unsure if a normal experience would be the same.

I would NOT recommend this for celiacs. When I stated I had an allergy, the guy went to grab me a “menu” which was just a VERY intense list to cross reference. They continuously brought food and just dropped it off without any explanation of what the heck was being put in front of me. When I would ask what things were or if they were gluten free the waiter just told me “what does it say in the menu” which was incredibly dismissive but aside from that NOT HELPFUL. If I didn’t have my service dog I never would have felt comfortable eating anything here and tbh it’s a crap ton of money if you can’t eat anything.

The skewered they thought around consistently touched everyone’s plates - some of which / most of which were from the salad bar which had a ton of bread on the plates. It’s like 60 dollars per person, I’d never recommend this as a safe location. My service dog cleared most of the meats but he also alerted to several, without him I wouldn’t touch this

The “bread” mentioned in another post is actually gluten free cheesy Brazilian rolls. Almost everything with a few exceptions, is gluten free. They have a book containing all allergens, it’s not hard to navigate. The food is amazing. Another post is inaccurate about gluten filled deserts, as they are not prepared in the same kitchen. It’s one of my favorite places.

We went here for dinner on September 16, 2023, and I can’t say enough good things about it. I made a reservation through OpenTable and noted my gluten and lemon allergies. The host greeted us and gave me a list of items containing gluten. Then a manager walked me around the “marketplace” bar of sides to tell me what would work for me. They also brought some GF mini rolls made of cassava flour, and noted that the fried polenta was made in a separate fryer.

As a celiac, I would be very careful of this restaurant. The staff is NOT knowledgeable about what is in the food. However there is a giant book of allergens you can ask for. I did my best, but it is hard to consult the book with everything in real time and there is gluten bread made on site as well as almost all of the desserts which have gluten. Additionally, almost all of the bar food contains gluten. Be wary of anything fried.

Awful experience. I spoke to both managers and a head chef and was given conflicting information on what is gluten free and cross contamination. The worst part is I was the one who organized a 40 person baseball team dinner here because I was assured it was mainly GF and my son wouldn’t have to be singled out and could eat like everyone else. Every part of this experience was a nightmare. Most of the kids were done eating by the time it was determined what my son could eat. He was starving after this very expensive and awful experience.

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!

The best salad bar ever! Only a few items have gluten and they are all in one area. Fantastic GF Bread and sides ( polenta, mashed potates, and baked banannas). 10 GF meats. My favorite place to eat GF, but $$$$.

This was more informal than I would hope for the price. I think I did get cross contaminated, although I’d also been traveling for a week already, so that might have been the issue.

They were wonderfully helpful as I went with friends for their Market table brunch. This meal does not include the meats, just an omelet station and the full salad bar. I called before we made reservations and was told the ONLY thing with gluten was the French bread on the salad bar. I suspected that was t right but went in person to check it out. After i explained that malt vinegar is NOT gluten free nor is flour used as a thickener, 85% of the food was eliminated for me to eat. All of the side dishes/salads aside from the steamed broccoli had vinegar, the soup had flour, the entire antipasto selection aside from sliced cheese had vinegar and on and on. I had lettuce with the creamy dressing and raw fruits and veggies. That was all i could eat for $40.

I am updated my review from a few years ago. This place is much better than the other Brazilian steakhouse down the road!

They gave me a laminated allergy table that showed what had gluten. Overall a really good experience. Come prepared to stuff your face if you select the all you can eat option.
