  • "It was great but would not want to pay regular price."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "This is our fourth visit. It is the first time we sat upstairs in a the far right corner. At first I was not happy with the seat but after being there a few minutes I realized it was a great location. We were able to hear ourselves and have almost what felt like a private meal."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Overall great experience. Food was excellent and service was great. Restaurant was very loud though due to restaurant week in Charlotte."

  • "Enjoyed a wonderful dinner with my husband. Elegant evening with wonderful food."

  • "decided to go with the full selection and im VERY happy that i did! all the beef cuts were amazing, fish was perfect, and the lamb chops were some of my favorite ever"
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "No other restaurant has such consistently good food, every dish, whether it is a meat carved at your table or the varied salad bar. We love it, especially during restaurant weeks. However, it is so very noisy that conversation is all but impossible. We wish they would give some attention to sound attenuation; it would make them much more appealing and higher quality… and then qualify them too on the list above as "romantic"!"

  • "the food was just ok been to better maybe it was because it was a specials night and they were cooking to fast"
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "From the moment I entered until I left it was a fantastic experience. The food was well prepared and the staff was amazing attentive without being overly obtrusive. I can't say enough about the service."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "I have never been to such an outstanding restaurant. Everything was outstanding, especially the food and the amount that you can get for the price. The service was very friendly, kind and makes sure that you have everything you want if not more."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "I overall really enjoyed our night at Chima's, but the greeters are very rude and inconsiderate. I was taking my 75 year old grandparents out to celebrate and valet parking was not yet available so my husband had to find parking. There were 6 in my party and 5 of us where there. My husband was the 6th person and was trying to find parking in a very crowded area. They refused to seat us until he came in. They could see that the restaurant was crowded and there was no where for my grandparents to sit and they still made them stand in the lobby waiting. The greeters talk to you like you are beneath them and are overall just RUDE.Once we made it past them things were better. My waiter "Joseph" was one of the best ever and the food was great!"

  • "Went with my boyfriend for the first time after hearing from all our friends how amazing it was, and they were right! The food was amazing, everything was beautiful on the salad bar and the meats were cooked to perfection. The only complaint I have is they sat us alllll the way in the back of the house right near the kitchen entrance so we were in a "high traffic" area which was a little annoying and once we didn't order anything other than water to drink, our server wasn't really on top of us. We had to ask for plates a few times and tried to find him when we needed something."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "Great service and food!! We had a great time. I would definitely come back again."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "We went for Restaurant week, and when we arrived they informed us that the grill was broken. We made a reservation for the next week. That was an hour drive for nothing. I know they can't control those type of things."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "Major problem with grill. Closed unexpectedly. Compensate next visit there."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "Unfortunately, there was a problem with the grill when we were there and they had to close the restaurant. The management stepped up and provided an exceptional benefit to make sure we were happy. They gave us a managers card and told us we could use it in the future to participate in the "restaurant week" pricing. They also did not charge us for anything we ate or drank that night. They certainly have my business in the future!! I wish other businesses were as customer service oriented. The food we did have was excellent and the service was very good."

  • "Waiter spilled water over me, didnt appologize, just took a napkin and threw it at me. All the waiters were stuck up and just unfriendly."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "Enjoyed the service and the food. I think this restaurant has the best meal for your money during restaurant week."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "Charlotte's queens feast restaurant week - and Chima offered a significant discounted price - and everyone in Charlotte was there. It was packed and busy, Chima even opened the upstairs dining room. We've been there many times but were disappointed with the food and service during restaurant week. Some meats were dry and over cooked. Service was lacking because the waiters and servers were very very busy. I think Chima exceeded their capacity and it's hard to maintain quality while serving such a high volume. We will return but not during restaurant week."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "I have gone several times. During Charlotte Restaurant week it gets very busy, but, most of the time it is very busy. This last time I went in the service a little bit below par, but understandable due to event. I highly recommend this place. Wear elastic pants."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "We dined at Chima with friends this week taking advantage of Restaurant Week while trying somewhere we had not previously dined. The place was packed as to be expected and we were seated a few minutes earlier than our 7:15 reservation. The service was attentive and very good. The "salad bar" was excellent and offered many choices not commonly found in many restaurants. I applaud Chima for offering regular items on their restaurant week menu as so many of the restaurants feature items to meet the required price points and may not be otherwise on their standard menu when you return. The gauchos frequently came to the table with the various meats. All were very good but the Parmesan Pork was awesome! Definitely will be going back again."

  • "The food was great, atmosphere was inviting. Excellent Service! My plate was never free of meat and the servers were nice enough to pose for pictures while carving. Free Valet parking-- overall great experience!"

  • "It was my wife's birthday and we had a great time. We will be back again."

  • "We recently dined here during Queen's Feast and were not sure how crazy crowded it would be.The staff was SUPER attentive, meats were constantly being brought by the table and were cooked perfectly . Salad bar was amazing ! It is well worth the splurge to try this place out. We have been to other Brazilian steakhouses and none have came close to Chima .We love it!"
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "The server was not polite. The night was horrible there, I've dined there several times & this is the first time I've experienced this. Not happy with this result for a high cost restaurant."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "Enjoyed experience with my daughter and her boyfriend. Good value as it was restaurant week."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • " The food was great if you could ever get the servers to come near your table. I sat for 15 min. with nothing on my plate."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "So much wonderful meat, Chima is a fabulous Brazilian steakhouse. It's a little expensive for a dinner unless it's a date or a special occasion."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "My fiancé and I went for restaurant week because we heard it was pricy. The salad bar was great and they had very unique items such as hearts of palm. The selection of meat was great and there was no waiting for the selections to make it to your table. The fried bananas were amazing."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "Buffet was great: plenty of delicious selections, but a lot ran out quickly (beef tartare) and was extremely slow to be replaced. Service was a mix: the waitstaff was on top of it, refilling glasses and asking us if we wanted any meat in particular, but then it seems like it just never arrived. We waited 10 full minutes for anyone to come to our party of six with anything, and I found that unacceptable with the speed at which fresh foods were flying by us. In terms of food quality, I was EXTREMELY disappointed with the meats. Every single "premium" meat I paid to upgrade to was majorly overcooked- dry fish, grey steak, inedibly hard chicken and pork. Plain gross. An entertaining experience, but never going back."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "First we were sited immediately on a nice two persons table, the waiter was very nice, the buffet excellent with special items you do not find on ordinary buffet (heart of palm, fresh asparagus, smoked salmon etc..) then the meats were very good and cooked to order. Thank you very much."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "Wonderful dining experience. Food was delicious, full of flavor and continuous. The chefs prepare and serve the food which was amazing. The entire staff was very helpful and attentive."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Good food, lacking slightly on customer service during restaurant week. Staff seemed quite overwhelmed and it definitely showed."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "This is not dining, this is a food EXPERIENCE. Your palate is continuously treated to new, exciting tastes. Every cut of beef is exquisite yet different. It was a pleasure to dine here and I look forward to a return visit."

  • "Great food, drinks, service, and atmosphere. A place that everyone should try at least once."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "I took my son, his wife and my two grandkids (ages 2 and 4) to CHIMA for restaurant week and it was fabulous. There was NO CHARGE for the kids and they ate off of our plates but, with so much food, there was not a problem. The salad bar is out of this world and everything you can imagine and more is on it. The meats were delicious and the service was outstanding. No sooner did we flip our coin to YES and the waiters were at our table. Would recommend this restaurant to everyone, for every occasion!"
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "After hearing so many people rave about Chima, I was so excited to try it out. Although the extensive salad bar and table appetizers (various breads and spreads) were excellent, the meat (the focal point of Chima) was a huge disappointment. The flank steak was tough and had so many nerves in it that it was almost impossible to chew. The pork tenderloin was dry and tough. The ribs were absolutely terrible...you couldn't even get the meat off the bone. I cannot believe how disappointing this meal was and, needless to say, I will not return. The experience and atmosphere was nice but the food just is not worth any amount of money."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "We had a lovely dinner Sunday afternoon. I was seated promptly & the wait staff & servers explained the menu & dining options. The service was excellent & the food was Fabulous! Touché & thank you for making our family dinner a huge success! We will be back again!"
