  • "I hadn't been to ChaChama in awhile, I forgot how wonderful the food, atmosphere and service is. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. I must make it a point to go more often. It is really fine dining, a level above the rest. "

  • "Had dinner the first time saturday night with another couple. 3 of us ordered the marinated skirt steak. It was very good. My other friend ordered the Tuna over wasabi mashed potato. She was extremely happy with her meal. I must say the wasabi mashed potato was excellent. I also ordered the beef empanada. This was my first time having them. They were amazing but the black bean salsa was even more amazing. The only thing I must say is I felt the prices were a tick high compared to comparable restaurants in the area. The drinks were priced very high as well. My husbands shrimp cocktail tasted fresh and delicious, just felt the presentation was mehh and could use improvement. Overall I highly recommend making a reservation."

  • "You don't expect a restaurant of this caliber in a strip mall in East Patchogue. The decor is relaxed, fine restaurant. Music is perfect volume, perfect selections. Service is professional and pleasant. Food is excellent. $38 for the prix fixe menu of appetizer, entree, and dessert (many choices, no beverage) is a bargain. Excellent choices: appetizers: Rubio's oysters, salads, ravioli; entrees:duck, chicken, shrimp, branzino. Decent wine list even by the glass. I'd come just for the rolls!"

  • "A bit pricey but the food and service keeps you coming back in this strip mall restaurant. All diners at the table thought the food was superb. The duck was the " best ever had", and the fish dishes were cooked to perfection. All dishes were beautifully presented. The lowly roll on your bread plate had some flair, beautifully shaped with an upward pointed crunchy tail, crunchy crust and soft deliscious interior. Mmmmmmmmm. Coffee and capuccino served nice and hot. The Napoleon had a woderful light flakey crust but I found the whipped cream was a little to sweet, however the vanilla ice cream was creamy and I wish I had more."

  • "The night started with a wonderful and warm greeting at the door by hostess. She could not of have been nicer. Although it was our first time at the restaurant, she made us feel that we were regulars. The menu was diversified and gave us a lot to choose from. The appetizers were good and came timely. My husband had the steak and I had the scallops and both were excellent. Although the restaurant became busy, we did not feel rushed in anyway. All in all, it was an enjoyable night."

  • "I have always considered Chachama our special place to have a wonderful dinner and get away from the day to day hassle of everyday life. It is a wonderful place to have a romantic dinner. It is also a great place to have a gathering of friends and family celebrating a special event. The food is fabulous ; the price fixed menu is very impressive. The wait staff and Helene make everyone feel at home with their impeccable service. My favorite night is now Steak night, I am still dreaming about the fabulous Cowboy steak I had last week. Chachama will always be number one on my list!"

  • "I've been to Chachama on several occasions and never had been disappointed. Everything is fresh, and very flavorful. Oysters Rubio excellent thought I'd try something new as I do not eat oysters....will order these again. My friends had the foie gras said it was the best and the shrimp cocktail was cooked to perfection. Entries were halibut, filet mignonette on the bone, and roasted duck. Each entre is so flavorful, it's amazing what Rubio creates in his kitchen. Desserts are fabulous...Napoleon is light with fresh berries. Entire staff is friendly and welcoming. This restaurant has class all around. What a treasure!,, my favorite restaurant!"

  • "Lucky to live in a neighborhood that has a special restaurant tucked in a shopping center, with a name nobody recognizes. It is already hard to reserve a table, so I don't want to tout Chacham's too loudly or I may not get a seat next time I want quality food, ambiance, and professional service. Elmer Rubio has created the perfect spot for top notch dishes prepared with pride. Oysters Rubio appetizer, followed by a rack of pork over Tahitian vanilla sweet potatoes, and for desert, a Napoleon to die for. No, I'm not related."

  • "What a treat it was to dine at Chachama Grill. The wait service was wonderful, the food better. Thursday night is Latin night with something for everyone. I'm a picky eater and I had many choices. It's not the least expensive place to dine, but it was worth every penny."
    Dined on 1/23/2014
  • "The food is excellent and well presented.The service is excellent and very professional: it's so refreshing to find a restaurant where the waitstaff doesn't introduce themselves by saying "HI , I'm so and so, and I'll be your server tonight". The waitstaff are attentive, but not interruptive. The dining experience at Chachama makes one feel welcome,pampered,and important."

  • "Small, classic decor, warm and friendly service, and really good food. A small selection of dishes in each category, but everything excellently prepared and served. A real treasure in the vastness of Long Island dining. The location in a strip mall is deceiving, everything about Cachama was first rate."

  • "There is a reason my wife and I and some close friends have been to Chachama repeatedly on New Year's Eve - they always provide the best food, the best service, and the best, fun time. This year was no exception. The eight-course menu was typically wonderful. No let down in quality or service for an "event" night at Chachama! Iam sure we will be back to welcome in 2015. You should go, too, but please wait until I get my reservation."

  • "Don't let the name cause you to pass this restaurant by as we did for years. The menu is diverse enough to satisfy anybody's palate. Chef Rubio creates incredible dishes fusing Modern American with Latin and Asian influences. My wife and I dined at Chachama Grill for the first time recently to celebrate my birthday and we are hooked. The Oysters Rubio and Calamari Endive appetizers were absolutely delicious. Looking forward to our next visit."

  • "Another great dining experience in Long Island. Being Californians we always have our guard up when out of our territory. The family that owns the restaurant was there and treated us like royalty. We have a mostly well behaved 14 year-old son with autism. The staff was very pleasant and accommodating. The food was well prepared and the menu was creative and met our expectations and beyond."

  • "We are never disappointed when we dine at Chachama Grill. The bartender was knowledgeable and friendly but knew when to step away. Our meals were outstanding but they always are at Chachama Grill. The menu has meals that you would see perhaps on other restaurants' menus but with a twist. Love it and will definitely go back."
