    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!

    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.

    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 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.
