Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "Brought my son and his twins here for their birthday. Service was excellent and waiters were very good to my 4 year old grandchildren. 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."

  • "First of all, their LAMB is to DIE FOR! The meat is great, and the side dishes are not your regular mac & cheese. You definitely have to be willing to try different things out. They don't have a great fish selection, my friend, who does not eat chicken, beef or pork did not have an excellent time. There was also a drink spillled on my friend's coat, and the manager gave her a card to get it dry cleaned on them - with no restraint. Every restaurant week, it's my favorite."

  • "The food was just OK. It's sad to say that the Bacon wrapped Chicken was better then the Filet. I probably won't be going back due to the lack of quality in there meats, but the salad bar was very great. There are a handful of places with better food for the $110.00 w/o you'll spend. The sever was great, he was funny, and helped us enjoy our time and I give him a 10."

  • "When you dine at Chima, you are guaranteed an experience. A staggering variety of expertly prepared Brazilian style meats ranging from Top Sirloin and various Filet Mignon to Parmesan encrusted pork and barbecue style short ribs. They also feature amazingly prepared salmon and swordfish. This does not even begin to cover the extent of options that are offered."

  • "Food was excellent and male servers very attentive and particular to detail. Female who seated us and told us about menu was sharp and not really wanting to hear our questions as we mentioned it was our 1st time there. She cut us off in the middle of conversation to get her pitch out and left. Found that unprofessional at a high end restaurant. Will probably never go back to Chima."

  • "I had an amazing experience, tasted food I've never tasted in my life, and legitimately enjoyed myself. It was my wife's birthday, and they did the birthday thing WITHOUT singing, which was great for her. Everyone was pleasant, helpful, and quick to care for every need without being over my shoulder all the time. I loved the pace, the place, the way everything is set up and served, and would hands down visit again! Phenomenal dining experience, the wet bar is outrageous (in a great way) and the meats are just succulent. Not to mention, they'll cook them however you like!! I highly recommend, but be sure you budget really well for it! With all that amazing quality food, be ready to pay for it!"

  • "Hi, I came to Chima for my 24th birthday dinner with friends, and we were handled with excellent care and professionalism. Our waiter Carlos was very warm and knowledgable and made this first time experience one to remember. It all was great ;from the salad bar with so many eclectic and well presented options ,to the different succulent meats brought by the meat man, and finally my surprise birthday desert with the Happy Birthday Chocolate on top and picture souvenir . It was a awesome. Thank you"

  • "I was very pleased with the service and the food we received. When I made it known to our head waiter that we did not drink alcohol the entire serving group knew this and it was taking into consideration throughout our meal. Even the complimentary glasses of champagne for our wedding anniversary were non alcoholic. Thanks you for a great night and memorable experience."

  • "We have gone to Chima several times. This time we were seated upstairs on fathers day. It was very disappointing. I did not have any of the meat or fish and just had the bar, no one noticed, our waiter was hardly around and half the meat did not come to our table. I will not sit upstairs again. I will request to be downstairs. It is a much warmer feeling downstairs and everyone knows what is going on."

  • "I love the food. It was a little too much for me cause I can't eat that much and can't get my money's worth. Service was nice a little too pushy about looking at the wine list after I stated I don't drink but other than that it was a great place to eat. I have tried Brazilian places before but nothing tasted as good as this place!"

  • "Chima is my family's go to for special occasion dining. During prior trips to Chima, we have fallen in love with the leg of lamb, lamb chops, filet mignon, flank steak, garlic steak, & ribeye offered. Most recently, I was absolutely WOWED by the amazingly tender beef ribs offered as one of the night's meats, however ALL of the meats I had were seasoned exquisitely & cooked to perfection. The gorgonzola mousse, calamari salad, & artichoke salad were incredible, as always. The service was also exceptional, as always. We typically find ourselves looking to the calendar once we return home from visiting Chima to determine the next possible event we can celebrate as a reason to return for the experience again. Can't wait until next time..."

  • "We paid $53 per person and we got, maybe 8 cuts of meat at an 8:30 seating. The waiter wasn't paying attention to the drink order, so we ended up paying for an extra ($12) drink. Salad bar is "ok" - nothing special. Only three warm sides served - vegetable rice, white rice and black beans with pork. Need greater variety. Restaurant is banking on service and location."

  • "When my girlfriend and I decided to play dress up and go on a fun date I knew I had to pick out somewhere nice. I am Brazilian and I had always wanted to take her to a true Brazilian steak house, so I chose Chima's. They blew away my expectations! This place was modern, but with classic and flawless service. The salad bar was the best one we have ever seen. The best part however, the seemingly endless amount of delicious steak and fish! The sword fish was impeccable. The overall experience was excellent and when we were done eating we expected it was going to be a little more expensive than we originally thought. "

  • "I had never been to a Brazilian steakhouse before. It was a unique experience the way the food is served. It's called rodizio which translates to rotation and these chefs called gauchos bring different styles meat and seafood all flavored differently. We had a bottle of wine which was recommended by our server that complimented our dinner remarkably. We started out with the salad bar and I was amazed at the selection they had available. I recommend Chima to everyone so you can have the incredible dining experience that we did. "

  • "This was our first time at this restaurant. The experience was great, the meats were tender and mouth watering. The staff explained the process even the children understood. The only advice I would recommend is having prices so people are not surprised when the bill come."
