  • "This restaurant was the best restaurant I have ever been to they made my 18th wedding anniversary very special. Our waiter was CARLOS and he done a fantastic job. The food was so tasty and was the perfect temperature."

  • "We arrived with 8 oclock reservations, it was so loud that we couldn't even hear the girls at the front or the waiter, we kept having him repeat himself, the salad bar was ok, but did notice gnats were on a hunk of cheese, just sitting there and flying around. The meat was good, nothing spectacular, and I noticed more than a few bottles of wine on the menu that I have seen in grocery stores that were triple the price.The service was great, the food fair, but definitely not worth the price, two dinners, one glass of wine, water, and a tip was 155.00, too much for a noisy not so special dinner."

  • "We had reservations for a Saturday night...walked in and they sat us immediately. Servers were very attentive and helpful with the wine list. Food selection was vast and tasty. Definitely suited for a more sophisticated palate. Here is the bad part where I had to ding them on the star rating. Bugs...there were little gnats or fruit flies flying around our table and even got in my food a couple times. Yuck. Fortunately, I could have gotten more if I chose to. Also, restaurant itself felt too warm in the section we were sitting (table 11). I think I would give it one more try and hope they have those issues fixed."

  • "It was a fantastic first time experience. The service was spectacular and very attentive. I would definitely come back again and recommend Chimes to others."

  • "My husband & I went last Sunday night. Service was terrible. We are both thin people and don't eat much, but we left Chima hungry. The green card means bring food ~ it was totally ignored. We eat Brazilian food quite often, normally at Fogo de Chao in Atlanta, but this place was terrible. And if you are wondering what I did eat, 1 pork sausage, 1 bacon wrapped chicken, 1 small filet piece, & 3 slices of the top sirloin ~ that was all I could get them to bring to me. Although, they did suggest we purchase a dessert. We will never go back."
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "Food is always high quality, but they constantly bring out the cheap meat (sausage and chicken) to fill you up, and I had to ask about 5 times for the filet, ribeye, and top sirloin before they finally brought it out. Whenever we needed the waiter to do something, it took forever."

  • "This was my first time at a Brazilian Steakhouse. Chima has a beautiful atmosphere and is great for a special night out. Definitely great food with lots of variety. Very much enjoyed the salad bar and the ambiance. Highly recommend!"

  • "My husband and I went to diner here for our first year anniversary. We had never been here before and were kind of skeptical however we were greeted well and the ambience was overall great!! We would definitely dine here again."

  • "We took a party of 10 with several new to the concept in our party. This evening was a going away celebration for our sons who are going back to and/or starting college. The service at Chima is OUTSTANDING. Everyone was impressed with food, food quality, good humor and overall ambience. This is an excellent concept for large parties as there is no waiting to order, waiting for food, etc. You sit down and ready, set, go! Everyone is treated to a meal of their own making. We left full and happy! We will definitely visit again for special occasions."

  • "We have been to Chima many times and love it. The food is fantastic and service is typically attentive and wonderful. We go with groups of friends or for business dinners and are never disappointed. I think with restaurant week they were overwhelmed and therefore service suffered and they were out of some items. But, I would still high recommend Chima as I know this was an unusual visit. Definitely try all of the cuts of meat and don't skip the fish. It is excellent."
    Dined on 7/28/2014
  • "Eating here is more of an experience. Trying all the different meats was fun. The salad bar was interesting. It was not your typical lettuce and toppings. We had a great time, but probably wouldn't go back for a while. It's more of a one time thing because of the experience and the cost."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "The food is wonderful and the choices are varied, but it was the service that truly stood out. Really pleased with our experience."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "This was a little different from what I am used to, but it was not bad at all! The salad bar was a little too exotic for my tasting, but the 8 different meat selections were such a delight. All the meat was prepared well and very tasteful! Considering this being a Brazilian steakhouse it was a great experience with a great atmosphere!"
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "This was our first time at Chima.We enjoyed it very much but would probably not go back any time soon.The food was excellent and plentiful; the all-you-can-eat salad bar was like no other salad bar we had ever seen.It had literally everything from soup to nuts. Every single item was fresh and delicious. The meats were wonderful with our favorite being the parmesan crusted pork. With that being said, it is much too loud. It's a fun restaurant but it was hard to talk to each.If you are looking for a nice, quiet peaceful dinner this is not the restaurant for you. We did have a few concerns but our waiter dealt with them quickly and to our satisfaction.I would not go to this type of restaurant more than once a year."

  • "I visit Chima's often and have always loved it. However, I decided to visit during Queen's Feast and it appears since they were offering the meal at a much lesser price, the quality of meats seemed to match. The ribs and lamb were not in its normal abundance."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "Went to chima over the weekend and I must say from the moment we walked the courteous staff was amazing. The food was awesome and I walked out stuffed. This is a great addition to charlotte. Love the rodizio style serving!!"

  • "Not happy about the extra charge for the full selection of meats"
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "I have been to Chima's several times. I would rate my last experience as average. We were seated upstairs and it was uncomfortably hot during the entire dining experience. In addition, the lamb chops which are my favorite was only average. Not as delicious as I remembered. Not sure if this was because it was during restaurant week but I was somewhat disappointed but willing to give them another try."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "I have absolutely no complaints about the my experience at Chima. My parents raved about a Brazilian restaurant that they visited while on vacation so I thought that it would be a great idea to take them to Chima. They're already planning a trip back down to visit! The food, service, and ambience were all outstanding. Thank you for such a great experience. This is the way that dining should be."

  • "Enjoyed the experience behind the whole meat to the table concept."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Customer service was great from wait staff. After explaining our first time they explained to us the menu, how to received carved meat and about salad bar. We were visiting Charlotte and someone recommened this restaurant. I enjoyed the experience and the salad bar was great. Maybe because our reservation was at 8:45 that it seemed that meat selections were the same items not the variety we paid for. Our waiter did let the staff know we were requesting salmon;however, only swordfish was left we he came to our table. Unfortunate since he pasted our tables to go to the front of restuarant first. I only saw the fish item once. My husband never received the salmon. The meat was okay, I guess my expectations on taste were greater."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "I heard so many good things about this place, but it was such a dissapointment. The wait even with a reservation was sorta long, we weren't offred the wines that were are on promotion for the night. The servers lacked in bringing the food around and instead of bring more bread like we asked they brought other items all together. It was a place that I can I've tried but will not eat at again, and when I saw my bill was a little upset about. If I was going with a group of people and they suggested this resturant I would try for a different place or meet up with them at a different time."

  • "It was great but would not want to pay regular price."

  • "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
  • "The food is always amazing but service can make or break a place. Our server (Lander??) was just not on his game at all. He never smiled- not once. He just seemed preoccupied and it was just a blah experience in regards to the service. It took me over 20 minutes to get sausage to our table. I had to ask 3 people."

  • "Overall great experience. Food was excellent and service was great. Restaurant was very loud though due to restaurant week in Charlotte."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Chima's was a great experience. We arrived 1/2 hour ahead of our reservation. The Hostess seated us at least 15 minutes ahead of our reservation. The waiter came over, explained the serving choices, the way food is served in a Brazilian dining establishment, what was on the salad bar, and then took our drink orders. We were kept topped off on tea. Water glasses never were allowed below the half empty level. Food was excellent and plentiful. It had a unique combination of spices and cooking time. It was flavorful, what was supposed to be spicy was, what was mild was just right. This is a restaurant that is casual PRESENTABLE dress. Wait staff was excellent, always on top of everything without being overcrowding. A fine experience."

  • "If you love meat then this restaurant is for you! Personally I'm not a huge meat person. Sure I love my 6 ounces of filet occasionally, but a whole meal of meat really isn't for me."

  • "Everyone was so helpful and the food was fantastic. Probably one of the best restaurants I have been to in charlotte."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "I've to Chima several times & this is the 1st time this happened. We invited a friend her 1st time, she ordered A bottle of wine for the table, the wine was served, no problem, but what I didn't like, the waiter kept bringing & opening bottles without asking her if she wanted another bottle. Finally I noticed what he was doing & told him please NO MORE wine. It was a party of 9, everyone was talking/laughing & having a good time and wasnt noticing what was going on, but I did. And the same thing happened with the filtered bottle water and only 1 person ordered this. When we mentioned this the waiters/servers act like they couldnt hear or didnt understand what we were saying. I felt like we were being hustled. Bad impression for me."

  • "We eat there during restaurant week and also during the year. My husband loves meat so this is right up his alley! Great service, great food...it's a win/win. Thanks for being a feature Queen Feast restaurant."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "The food was good but the service was not. I know it is Restaurant Week and very busy, by now Chimaz should expect the craziness after spending years doing restaurant week. We had to ask 3 times for lamb, they never provided BBQ ribs, and all they kept bringing was chicken. The menu stated they had about 8 different meats available but about 80% of the time they only offered us chicken. I don't think I will be going back because it's not worth the money."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "I love Chimas..and I go during restaurant week in addition to other occasions several times a year. This time the chicken was very dry!.. I tried it twice just in case I got a bad batch. Also the waiters forgot to bring food to the table I had to ask.. The whipped potatoes and one other side"
