Diner Reviews
  • "For my husbands birthday, we had an outstanding experience at Chima's. I had just noted on the reservation it was his birthday and all the staff wished him a happy birthday, we received a slice of tiramisu with a candle and a they took a picture of us- printed it and put it in a frame as a keepsake. I also mentioned to one of our waitstaff that I was 6 months pregnant and needed to have my meat at least medium. She alerted all the meat servers and they would return to the kitchen to specifically cook my pieces to adequate temperature. The salad bar is also phenomenal. Lots of different options- not your typical salad bar. Great experience! "

  • "We went here for a special birthday celebration . The service was stellar , everyone was very friendly And attentive. I felt that it was way overpriced . The Food was good but we could have gone to a Nice steakhouse And gotten a great meal for half The price. I guess you pay for the sampling experience? I would not recommend bringing children to a place Like this unless price is not an issue. You def Need to come with a hearty appetite I don't think I would ever go back again"

  • "From the large and varied salad bar to the non-stop meats, drinks and desserts, you will definitely not leave hungry. There is nothing lacking in the food, and the desserts are exceptional."

  • "We went with my family to celebrate my dad's birthday. The food was very good, I would choose this restaurant over a traditional steak house. My father as well as my kids loved it, we will defiantly be returning."

  • "I love going here for a special occasion. The food service is always excellent, and they will accommodate any special requests you might have. We took advantage of half-price bottles of wine on Mondays, and were very satisfied with the meal."

  • "Loved it but I say after the dining experience I would only go once a year. It was a lot of meat and I'm kinda a health nut"
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "Meats were fatty and chewy, most cooked to well done. Fish tasted fishy and had bones throughout. Same meats came around all the time, had to wait for ribs and then they never came out. Service was slow and they forgot our bar drinks one time even though the restaurant was not busy. Salad bar was good but nothing new and they didn't even acknowledge my husbands birthday. Will not be returning in the near future."

  • "I had looked forward to going to Chima Charlotte since it opened. I kept trying to get my husband to take us and finally we went. The drinks upstairs were delicious. Our servers were awesome and so attentive ( Charlie and Sera) but the food was a lil disappointing. All of the steaks were very fatty. They were over cooked as well. I looked forward to the filet mignon so much but it was rather dry. My husband who usually is a pretty hearty eater stopped eating because the red meat choices were so fatty. We tried chicken wrapped on bacon too but the bacon taste was so strong you couldn't taste the chicken. Sad because I looked forward to trying Chima for a long time and was disappointed."

  • "I took one of my best friends here for her bday (because we had both been wanting to try it), and it didn't disappoint. The service was impeccable and the food was delicious!! Deoana & Reed took care of us and did an excellent job at explaining how everything worked for us newbies :) We will definitely return someday and soon. Thanks again Chima's!"

  • "I've wanted to go to a Brazilian steakhouse since I saw one profiled on the Food Network. I lucked into a 75% discount, so my husband I took our 3 year old for an early dinner. The salad bar included items I have never heard of, as well as excellent versions of items of which I am familiar. I only nibbled on the salad bar to make room for the entrees - and am very glad I did. I tried nearly all of the meats that were offered to me, and only had to use their horseradish sauce to improve the flavor of the lamb, which was surprisingly bland. I was too full by the time the swordfish came around, so I missed out on that. My only complaint was that I got a bit overwhelmed by the very thing I loved about it: the constant flow of gauchos."

  • "Wonderful experience that everyone should try at least once. Food was good and hot and you definitely got your money's worth. Overall it was a bit overwhelming for me, every minute you where being offered more and more food."

  • "My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves from the time we entered this restaurant and were promptly seated. The wait staff was quite attentive to our needs and took very good care of us and our table to make sure we were happy. Very positive energy throughout the evening. Delicious variety of foods, outstanding service, and a special ambiance that seemed to flow the whole time we were there. Made for a very interesting experience."
    Dined on 3/31/2014
  • "Both the Dinner and Salad Bar were excellent. However, for light to medium consumption diners, such as my wife and many females in general, would appreciate if you could include a choice of a limited meat or fish selection in the salad bar menu, in lieu of just a fish selection."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "This was the fourth time I've been here, and by far the worst. The food was outstanding as usual. What made this type so disappointing was the service. Every table is assigned 2 waiters. We didn't meet our second waiter until after we had been there for at least half an hour. They were slow to refill/reorder our drinks. Worst of all, at the end of the night, we had to wait forever to get our checks and receipts after paying. I will go back just because I love the food so much. However, if the service is as bad the next time we go there, it will be my last."

  • "As Brazilian steakhouse this was one of the better dinning experiences I've been to. The Salad Bar and the Choice Cuts of meats and seafood was superior and cooked to perfection. If you want to experience some of the best selection of the main event (the MEATS) and superb service come here. But come here hungry! This was truly an experience, even if you just want to enjoy a salad bar Chima is the place to come to. The selections for the salad bar was amazing. The only trouble as you enjoy the meal, superb service and the Gauchos roaming around, you may miss the huge selection of deserts, which looked wonderful, was no room after this wonderful meal Your in the Queen City you must experience Chima, don't leave without trying it."

  • "All of the meats were absolutely wonderful, but the top sirloin stole the show. I have eaten a lot of steak all over the world and the Chima top sirloin ranks in the top 5 I have ever eaten. Also, our service was first class. Whenever we wanted a particular type of meat, they were very attentive to our wants. The restaurant is a little pricey at about $50 per person, but if you are looking for a first class experience for a special occasion this is the place to go."

  • "I recommend this restaurant to everybody I have seen in the past couple days. I had an memorable experience down to the food, the service, the ambiance of the restaurant will make the grumpiest person smile from ear to ear!!!"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "The only drawback to this restaurant is that they have a relatively lax dress code. We were sat next to a table of diners dressed in gym clothing (shorts and tee shirts). At another table near us was a man and child (8 or 9 years old) dressed in their soccer gear. This does diminish the fine dining experience. The clientèle should be required to participate in the experience and should dress properly in doing so. I know this seems a bit snobbish. However, if you are trying to take your significant other out for a special evening you do not want a Chuckie Cheese crowd in a Chima Steakhouse."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "The food was good and the waitstaff is very attentive. The drinks from the bar where well poured! I would recommend this place for couples all the way to large groups. They have large circular tables that can accomodate large parties."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Unlimited trips to the elaborate salad bar and hot bar, which features a variety of salads, cheeses, vegetables, etc. and when the time is just right, the waitstaff bring never-ending rounds of succulent meats right up to your table! The best value for quality and quantity. A great experience that can be enjoyed as a romantic dinner for two or with a group of coworkers!"

  • "My husband and I went to Chima for our wedding anniversary. We were not impressed. Lamb was excellent; however, nothing else was on par with a typical restaurant in this price-point. Overall, it was a disappointment."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "We were celebrating a birthday, overall experience was nice. We had a few occasions where we were offered meat however our chips were turned to "no". Had some trouble in getting the proper temperature of beef however staff saw that it was taken care of quickly. I would recommend this venue for large groups, no ordering off menu and service begins fairly quickly after seated."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "My wife and I have decided to give new restaurants a shot in every price point. It was an intriguing idea, but the quality of the meat choices was fair, and the side dishes were lacking a certain special quality that one normally expects at this price point. The cuts all seemed similar in preparation and taste. The quality of the cuts seemed fair as well. Even the filet did not hit the mark of tenderness - and I truly like my filet rare and tender. While this place was interesting because they bring the cuts of meet to the table on skewers, it simply did not measure up the the quality one expects. Novelty does not equal quality."

  • "I decided to take my fiance here for her birthday. This was both our first time, an it was amazing. We heared from friends it was pricey but delicious. At first when we got our meat offered to us, I was confused because they only dropped one piece of chicken off. Before I finished that one piece my plate was filled with all types of meat before the chicken hit my stomach. The ribs, parmasean porkchops,chicken wrapped in bacon where my favorites. I would definitely come again, but going to have to save up because this is a hit on the pockets but wortb the hit. Who knows my birthday is coming up maybe she'll treat me."

  • "This was the first time I'd ever eaten here. I took my husband for his birthday. We also had our children with us. The food was amazing! The food selection isn't really kid-friendly, but we did find a few things that they would eat. As for Hubby and I, we very much enjoyed Chima. It's pricey, but worth it for rare treat. I wouldn't be able to go for a random date night because of the cost but definitely for a special occasion. I have already recommended Chima to several friends. And I intend to go again!"

  • "You don't clean up your restaurant or remove the food from the salad bar when your customers are still eating. That's like telling your customers WE WANT YOU TO LEAVE! This was a disappointment. The service in general was good, except when you do something like this. . I think that was rude and inappropriate, especially in a restaurant like Chima."
