  • "All Around A Great Dining Experience. We are "Food Snobs" who Dine in Manhattan often and it was a pleasure to find a neighborhood restaurant without the hype and foo-foo she-she that sometimes goes with eating in the "Big City""

  • "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!"

  • "We have been to Chachama Grill 3 times in the past two months. That alone tells you that this place has excellent, creative food. Don't let its location in a strip mall put you off. The food is first class and reasonably priced. The wait staff is attentive. I can't wait to try out their Steak Night and their Latin Night specials."

  • "Had a good experience at Chachama Grill. Entree of grilled shrimp was perhaps the best shrimp dish I have ever enjoyed. Combination of the shrimp and sauce was delicious. Nothing remarkable about the spinach salad .. somewhat bland. Service very good and we enjoyed a leisurely dinner. Had creme brulee for desert and it was as expected. In total would recommend this restaurant. I did find it a little pricey."

  • "We spent our 30th anniversary at Chachama last evening, enjoying the summer lobster bake. As always, the food and service were exemplary. We also enjoyed the "anniversary waltz" with our dessert. Chachama never fails to meet the highest standards!!"

  • "Outstanding and creative menu with a wonderful prix fixe with lots of choices. The quail appetizer was perfectly prepared and the prawns were excellent and huge. All sauces are classic yet each is very different. Save room for the delicious desserts. This is my absolute favorite restaurant on Long Island."

  • "We're not chefs, just good home cooks with 4 kids. Hard to find a place we feel monies been well spent. This is one of those places. We were treated like gold and the food is superb. WELL worth the money spent. This was our second visit and again it was absolutely superb!"

  • "We have been going to Chachama for over 10 years, but our dinner Sunday night was the best meal I have ever eaten, anywhere, EVER! The Tuna carpaccio appetizer was out of this world. From the citrusy bite, to the red sea salt and truffle oil, it was beyond wonderful. Followed up by bacon wrapped monk fish, with a chorizo hash, again beyond wonderful. Finally the hot rice pudding for dessert. OMG, what can I say? The creamy texture and flavors were so well blended, it was the perfect ending to a perfect meal."

  • "We have been dinning at Chachama Grill for many years now. We especially enjoy being there to celebrate special occasions because you can engage in conversations comfortably without needing to raise your voice to be heard. In addition, the dining room size is small. The service is always superb. "

  • "I was looking for something different from the same places we usually go to celebrate mother's day with my Mom. This place lived up to the reviews. Very nice , the staff was very attentive,and the food was amazing. Very unexpected to find such a nice place in a shopping center. When I booked the reservation I was expecting it to be on main street! "

  • "My husband and I absolutely love this restaurant. The staff is always friendly and professional. The ambiance is calm and slightly upscale. The food is SUPERB!!! We have been there for steak night, Latin night and regular menu nights and have never been disappointed with the quality and tastiness of their food. From start to finish, every mouthful is a taste bud's dream. This is by far our favorite restaurant. "

  • "I have been to the restaurant many times, mostly for lunch, and the food is excellent. The evening we went, there was a wine party going on so part (actually, most) of the restaurant was cordoned off. The space we were left with was very crowded and the waiter seemed a bit overwhelmed. I suggest people be told ahead of time if there is another party going on. This was a business dinner and because of the wine party and the closeness of the other diners, it was not always easy to hear."

  • "Chachama Grill remains a real pleasure. So many places on Long Island think that they know what they are doing, but are totally pretentious, amateurish, and clueless. THIS restaurant, however, with a simply decorated room and very professional waitstaff, serves deliciously prepared meals with a tiny Latin accent. Their early week prix fixe is a bargain. Dining out should always be this enjoyable!"

  • "This restaurant is a neighborhood gem. The food was very flavorful and vibrant. A variety of ingredients were utilized by the chef. Every detail was handled explicitly, from the spinach ravioli in beurre blanc to the fresh pasta and meatballs, the food will not disappoint. "

  • "While expensive, except for the fact that it was Restaurant Week, the Grill in worth every cent. Each plate arrived exactly as requested. The service was top line and the food wonderful. Great place to stop at after seeing a show at Gateway."

  • "We have been going to Chachama since it opened, on a regular basis, and have always been very pleased. Elmer and his staff are terrific. The food is always delicious, presented and served beautifully. Their various "special" nights, such as steak, latin, lobster, etc. are always a treat. The people who work there, many since the early days, are very professional and genuinely concerned that you have a wonderful dining experience. It is truly a local gem, for a special occasion or just to treat yourself to a lovely dinner."

  • "I had the price fixe option which was a great deal and the flavors of the food was excellent. I especially liked the flavor and texture of the chilean sea bass. I would go to this restaurant again but I would try it during the warmer months to experience the outdoor patio."

  • "Good service, nice atmosphere, average fare. Got to get back to see if it was really that mediocre."
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "For a setting which I would not call optimum, the food here is what shines, and yes, as it should;BUT, this level of food in a different setting would be what the chef (and owner) deserves to maximize what he is creating; it seems they have a very loyal, local (which I am not) following which is completely satisfied with the surroundings because of the food; but for a wider audience who might have to travel, maybe not so much.Go and enjoy!"
