The staff of this restaurant has verbally confirmed halal status. Only the lamb is Halal, coming from certified Halal providers in Australia. If you ask the staff about Halal meat, they will have no idea. Fogo de Chao headquarters has confirmed that all the lamb chops are only brushed with salt and are entirely halal. The lamb shank is basted with white wine BUT if you tell them you do not want wine they will prepare an entirely separate leg for you.
★★ Went here for the first time and was not satisfied.
This is an expensive restaurant! They do have halal meat and it is only lamb. You can either pick full experience which will cost you $51+ per person for an unlimited lamb steak and/or lamb chop. You can also order à la carte of lamb steak for $33+ per person which will be a total of 8-10 oz only. They don't have lamb chop as à la carte. Full experience and à la carte does come with unlimited salad bar trip.
Since this location is in downtown free parking is tough. They do have complimentary valet parking next door only in the evening. Don't forget to validate your parking ticket with the server.
I found steak to be tasteless and very bland. Not sure what the fuss is all about as I have definitely ate better steak in the past.
Based upon my experience I will probably go somewhere else next time. Posted on November 1, 2018
