I have been to Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse on several occasions for group meals. The first thing I would say is the salad bar is the best I've ever experienced. So many fresh choices that is hard not to try every thing. I would encourage anyone to go lite on the salad bar otherwise you won't have any room for the meet that is served afterwards. For the meat, it seems like the servers are pushing the less expensive cuts. You can request your preferred choice and not settle for what they happen to be offering. It seems like the desirable meats are selectively served.

Me and a couple colleagues were in Santa Clara this week and happened to stop by LUNA at 1495 THE ALAMEDA, SAN JOSE, CA, not once but twice. This is a hidden gem for visitors, but not for the locals as they know how good it is and it is crowded.The Margarita's are excellent, the chips and dips are great and tasty. We had the ceviche, a member of our party said "it was the best ceviche they've had", and one of the reasons we came back. I had the carne asada tacos and they were very good. I was a spectator, but the dessert was very good.Kevin was our great server and he was very polite and offered us options.The atmosphere is awesome, the service is outstanding. Make sure to stop by LUNA if you're near the area.

Zona Rosa

Reviewed By maggieatsfood

My favorite dish was ... the dessert. Bunuelos = small pumpkin fritters with horchata ice cream. It was seriously one of the most satisfying dessert I've had this year. 5 stars! Can't wait to try all the other desserts.Food was average. We got ·guacamole $8 (add bacon and pistachio for $9.50)·chorizo y mole negro tacos $12.50 (2 tacos, each with ground chorizo, black mole sauce, and pureed sweet potato - good flavor combo, nice texture contrast too)·elote (grilled corn cut off the cob, small portion, good as a side dish to add variety)·Pasilla Chile Relleno $18 -reasonable portion, good size to share; as for taste, I was disappointed that it doesn't have more flavors. I didn't know what I was getting in a bite sometimes. Don't recommend :(There are some interesting cocktails as well. We tried watermelon mojito and the strawberry basil margarita. Both drinks were too strong for my taste. Overall, we had a decent experience. The space inside is small, my chair was almost touching another person's chair. So it's smart to make a reservation, especially since you can do it directly on Yelp. Yes, this app you are using right now can save you time. Make a reservation for Friday and Saturday evening. Service was alright. My friend spilled her water (and didn't even break the glass). Though 2 or 3 waiters came to help clean up, somehow we were left feeling like we were stupid/did something wrong. Try a dessert!
