Diner Reviews
  • "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!"

  • "This was my first visit to Chima's. My family spoke highly of it and I had to give it a try. I drove from another state to check it out and it was well worth my journey. The food was seasoned to perfection and the eclectic salad bar was tasty as well.. My tablemates and I thoroughly enjoyed the rice pilaf. I will definitely dine here again. The complimentary valet service finished off our visit, not having to worry about finding a parking spot or having to pay college tuition to park in a garage was a definite bonus"

  • "The food was good but service was extremely lacking. My server only came to the table to take initial order. We ordered the premium cuts of meats and a bottle of wine for our table. I had to request to see my server later during dinner to inquire about food selection. None of server brought any premium meat choices to our table and not once did our main server check on us. He only offered to refill my wine glass when he noticed i was upset about the service. Extremely bad first impression."

  • "We have been to Chima Brazilian Steakhouse on two different occasions (1) non-Queens Feast and (1) 2011 Queens Feast. This visit, 2014 Queens Feast was very different. Our group felt as though once they came around with food so many times, they just quit coming. (Our group was not big eaters.) It was almost as though they had a certain amount of food allotted for the customers dining Queens Feast."

  • "The staff was great; lots of food . It was a little loud however i believe it was because everyone was excited to be there."

  • "We always enjoy restaurants and chimas was one of #1 but after our last experience I am not sure if we will be back. #1 issue: once we sat down we found out that kids pay $26, this is just ridiculous! My daughter is 8 and I am sure she does not eat $26 worth of meat...she might have had maybe had 5 bites of meat and paying $26 for a child to eat here is just crazy! But we did...not ever again will we pay this amount. #2 issue: meats took a long time to come by our table, we waited almost 10minutes for the first meat to actually make it to our plates...lots of men passed by our table but never stopped to offer even though all 3 of us had the green signs up. I was very disappointed specially after traveling almost 45 minutes to go here."

  • "I was expecting a meat selection that was exceptional, but it was not. Pork and chicken was over cooked and dry. Flank steak was good. But the salad bar was amazing, if you like a wide variety of things you don't get very often. Appetizers and sides were a little disappointing."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "This was our first and probably last experience at Chima. We have been to other Brazilian steakhouses in the area but never this one. Upon entering the front desk was friendly and quick to seat us for our reservation. Our 2 waiters were polar opposites. One was friendly and nothing but wonderful. The other was friendly until we declined his menu sell up and wine. Then it was like a total different server. He seemed very uninterested in us and more into surrounding tables who ordered those items. Very noisey dinner. The meat itself was wonderful for the most part. Flank steak was the only one we didn't care for. Salad bar was just OK to me. In comparison to some other ones it was disappointing especially considering the cost."

  • "Enjoyed the atmosphere and food to the fullest. Servers need to learn more about bar selections. I'm not a heavy drinker and ask for a sweet mild drink. I was served a drink so strong it'd knock an alcoholic's socks off. Not to mention I paid $12 for a drink I could not enjoy!!"

  • "My husband and I had the pleasure of the "Chima Brazilian steakhouse" experience. We had heard so many wonderful things and weren't disappointed. The meats were flavorful and delicious! I loved the chicken and the top sirloin. The mashed potatoes were tasty also ( a little too mashed though almost baby food consistency). The waiter was advised of my allergies and suggested a cocktail that he thought I would love and he was correct. My eats seafood and lamb but he loved the flank steak and ate more red meat that night than he has in 5 years. We will definitely be back!"

  • "Considering it was Charlotte restaurant week and Fri night, the place was crowded but the service was still excellent. I am not a fan of all you can eat anything, so it's not necessarily my thing, but the salad bar, meats and sangria were very good. High energy, young attentive staff, extensive wine list, better for all you can eat fans."

  • "We arrived 15 minutes prior to our reservation time and checked in but we did not receive a pager to let us know when our table would be available. After waiting for 40 minutes on our table, and seeing groups of the same number as our party be seated much quicker, I asked about our spot on the list. I was told that we were next in line and given a pager at that point. Almost fifteen minutes later, and after several more parties were seated, we were finally shown a table, after waiting almost one hour. The hostess service was definitely not comparable to the food."

  • "This was my second visit within one week. Food quality, service, and especially Caipirinhas just great. I will return as quick as possible!"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "We were seated upstairs for the first time in years and I'm wondering if that's what made the difference in the dining experience. It took more than 30 minutes before we got any cuts of steak, and that was after complaining twice to the waiter. The food was wonderful, when we eventually got it, but we were all disappointed by the wait. The gaucho with sausage came by repeatedly, but no one with steak could be found. The waiter said he notified the manager, but that didn't seem to speed things up. This has never happened when dining on the 1st floor."

  • "we went for queens feast. were told to get the better meat cuts we would need to pay 42 instead of 30. we didn't and the meat was tough. we had a few small bowls of bread, soupy potatoes on the table (which I guess was to replace the dessert we didn't get). we felt rushed and waited for them to open our wine. wish we had gone to del frisco..."

  • "I'd heard nothing but rave reviews, and decided to take a chance and venture out somewhere I'd never been. The hostesses and the wait staff, make you feel like you are almost royalty right from the get go. You start off with the most elegant salad bar I've ever seen, but don't fill up too much. The next course, meat, meat, and more meat. They just don't stop bringing it, well, until you flip your button over. And if you have room for dessert, good on you. Myself and my date did not. Everything was so flavorful and so moist. Even the steak was just about fork tender. All in all, very worth the experience."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Although, my reservation was for 5 pm, it took 20 min. to seat us. Their procedure for seating diners is clumsy and backward. Why do you have diners wait in the lobby until the clock strikes 5 pm when there is no reason not to seat them as they arrive. Watching waiters and hostesses standing around doing nothing until 5 pm is stupid and a real waste of time."

  • "My first visit here was quite amazing! More foods than listed on the website. Could easily filled up on the tasty salad bar. I know how to pace myself now so I really look forward to my next visit. I enjoyed as much of the hot fresh meats as I could . I like the courtesy sign to signal if you were ready for more meats. There's a never ending rotation of meats and if you really like one they make sure to keep it coming. Gourmet flavor from the salad bar, the meats and dessert. Bar drinks had the freshest tasting fruits. Go! but go with a appetite . Well worth the menu price if you really like experiencing great foods."

  • "Thank you for providing an excellent dining experience. I was taken to a similar restaurant in Denver and loved it. I wanted to show my mother a great experience as well, so I took her to a Brazilian steak house close to home and it was horrible! Needless to say this was better then I remember it in Denver."

The food was excellent and there is no waiting for food to be delivered to your table. Great salad bar as well. I have been here several times and it is always excellent."

  • "Chima excels at pleasing a variety of diners. There is a plentiful, fresh salad bar with both traditional and unique delights. The dinner service is plate side as gauchos respectfully travel through the dinning room with fresh meats just prepared in traditional Brazilian style. You can eat as much or as little as you please, but you should try a sampling of each item ranging from steaks, chicken, ribs, lamb and fish. It's an excellent journey. The staff compliment the journey at each step and are very willing to accommodate and tailor anything to your liking. My wife has severe food allergies and the staff made her fresh items from the salad bar and designated different meats only for her. The staff is extremely happy to help."
