  • Shopping Center Surprise

    Dined on 10/23/2014
    Located in a shopping mall I had low expectations, but to my surprise the food was very good. An menu which has a Latin feel with fish and meats supported by an extensive wine menu, which includes a 90 point white Burgandy and a semisweet from Alsace. Service was also timely and friendly. My only complaint was the decor which reminded me of a Pottery Barn catalogue -- so not nearly as inspiring as the food. Try the sword fish and flan.

    This is one of the top rated restaurants on the South Shore of LI…It is our go to restaurant for special events. We aways walk out feeling so satisfied for many reasons. Not only is the food outstanding but the service is so well done…No constant interruptions, and removing food before everyone is done…The staff is so well trained. This makes the whole dining experience a 10 plus… Thanks again to Elmer and the whole Chachama staff.

    Chachama Grill has an exceptional menu and the food is cooked to perfection using the freshest ingredients. We dined there recently on a Wednesday night and selected from their Weds. Steak Night menu. They had a full house as its' reputation for fine food is no secret.

    Chachama Grill is tucked into a strip mall. No the kind of place you would find unless you were looking for it. Go look for it! Its worth the trip. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The décor is very nice. The food is outstanding.

    Classy restaurant, wonderful ambience, excellent food, great service. The noise level was meant to be quiet, however the party next to us didn't get the memo. Would have given five stars but unfortunately we didn't get dessert because of a freezer problem.

    From the moment we walked in the door the evening was an absolute pleasure starting with the attentive manager, knowledgeable server and the entire staff. Every single food item we ordered from appetizers to main dishes was superb. My husband had the duck and I had the seared tuna with wasabi mashed potatoes. My desert of the warm rice pudding was one of the best deserts I have ever had! I eat out quite frequently and I am extremely critical of little details (napkins, cleanliness of my table while and after eating, server attentiveness) Chachama Grill exceeded all of my expectations and I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a superb dining experience. You will not be disappointed!

    Needed to help a decidedly sophisticated friend celebrate her birthday and used Zagat to help me find this gem. Food and service were excellent and prepared in an outstanding manner. Each item appetizer, entrée, dessert had an extraordinary preparation. Room was tastefully decorated. Service was attentive and thoughtful. Would have given everything 5 stars if I had not had to exchange a poor lobster bisque for a fantastic fried oyster appetizer; if there were a little more separation from the bar, and if the charming host had not seated one couple right next to us in an otherwise open dining room. However, 99% of restaurants on Long Island would not have come close to this otherwise superior restaurant in taste, presentation, or service.

    A very enjoyable dinner . The lobster Bisque was great as was the Seafood Risotto. Everyone liked there food from Steak to chicken and Seafood. One minor thing I found the Oyster Appetizer was very bland needs more seasoning. It would have been perfect but they did not have the NA beer that was on the menu or the Warres Port. Hope when we go back they will have them.

    I had wanted to try Chachama Grill for a while as I had heard great things about it. I went there for my birthday dinner this past weekend and was extremely impressed. From the moment we walked in to the moment we left we experienced impeccable service from each member of the staff. Our appetizers, entrees, drinks were all outstanding, perfectly cooked and plated beautifully. I will definitely be back. If you haven't been this is a must try!
