Chima Brazilian Steakhouse - Fort Lauderdale
Good Choice For A Special EveningVery good food, especially the sirloin, salad bar is loaded with a wide variety of items, service was excellent, desserts are ok but nothing really jumps out as special from that area.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMCarnivore heavenGreat steaks, superb salad bar. Expect $100pp with drinks and wine6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMRed Meat and more RED MEAT!Thank you for the great and friendly service! Colleen in the bar made us feel like regular's and helped us with the menu........food was great and next time I will just skip the food bar and wait on the MEAT! Will make a return, soon!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMNot a Meater OptionI'm not a meat eater, so I only ate off the salad. I've been this Chima a number of times and knew the salad bar was amazing, so this wasn't an issue to me at all. What I didn't know (until a friend told me after the dining experience) was that Chima offers a discounted rate for diners only looking to eat off the salad bar. I wish I had known this before being charged $50 for the everything when I only ate the soup and salad. Our waiter clearly saw that I wasn't eating the meat - it would've been kind for him to note this....6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Place To EatWe had a great time for our wedding anniversary, the food was good, the service was great. Good place to eat, a little pricey but a well worth the treat.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyable Dinner with FriendsWe had such a wonderful dinner with friends. Everyone is so friendly from the walk in the door. I had made special requests when making my reservation and they were addressed without having to repeat it at arrival. Chima is Gluten friendly and made it possible for my friend to enjoy the dinner as much as me. Every meat was cooked how you like it, a favorite was the lamb. We will be returning to try even more dishes.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat PlaceThe food here is always fabulous and delicious. The meat cuts are superb and taste wonderful. Just be sure to drink plenty of water after!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best dinner.We only liked the whole salad bar, which has about 50+ items

Looking forward to many more dining experiences.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Time At ChimaFood was great. Service was fantastic. I booked our reservation over the net thru open table. I mentioned my son's birthday. Without having to ask when we got there, at the end of the meal the staff came out with a cake and sang happy birthday to my son. It was great. They really pay attention to detail. I would go back again and again and of course I would recommend Chima to all my friends.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great ambiance!Beautiful setting to match great food and great wine list! Service was exceptional!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMNice place.This was not our first time going here. The last few times we had much better service but I know people have their off days. As soon as we made a complaint to our waiter they corrected everything pretty quickly. The food was good just not amazing. We will go back and would suggest it to a friend although I wasn't thrilled with my experience this time we have gone before and everything was on point!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always this restaurantAs always this restaurant is superb! The salad bar is great and the food is always perfect!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMdinning experiencedisappointed by the quality of the food; also too noisy to be romantic; outdoor space great but only able to have drinks and apps outside. Would go back to sit outside and listen to the band, which was quite good (female vocalist and a guitarist) and enjoy a drink and an appitizer.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a good time and reallyWe had a good time and really enjoyed The food and service was excellent my server was giordano he is excellent5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent for a special night outOverall awesome restaurant. Delicious food (and lots of it), personable and attentive wait staff, beautifully designed, and something for everyone. I took my boyfriend here for his 25th birthday dinner, although it was an expensive meal for two it was well worth it. I could not believe how great the service was and how unbelievable the food was (seriously, to die for!). I would absolutely go back again, but surely not on an average Saturday night out, as I previously mentioned it was quiet the steep bill.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome @ Chima'sVery elegant and awesome. The food kept coming and coming. Meats were outstanding. Definitely would go back. Price wasn't so bad. My fiance loved it.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperb!We had a wonderful dining experience.

GreatBeautiful dining room. Great salad bar,well made and quality ingredients. Fresh and juicy meat. Desserts a little overpricy but worthy specially the tiramisu. Resuming if you are looking for good food and you are ready to spend between 70-100 bucks per person this is a very good place to go. I definitely will come back again.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappointingThe food, service and caipirinhas at Chima are the best in town. Can't compare to Texas de Brazil. The salad bar has better variety, the rice and beans are better and the caipirinhas are made with real fruit. We will keep coming back!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had excellent experience.We had excellent experience. David was very nice.

We had an excellent server - Eduardo - who was attentive, friendly and not over bearing. He didn't rush us through our meal and made us feel that we were his most important table! We love the food (especially the lamb chops) and always have had a great meal when we go. We like bringing out of town guest to Chima for the experience! Thank you!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and vibeThis was my second vista to Chima. Both times the food and service was great. Especially notable was the salad bar.

The food was absolutely amazing5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMNice placeHave dined there many times and a favorite in Fort Lauderdale. Salad bar is very nice. Some of the meats were inconsistent in quality (tough) but overall a good dining experience. Good variety of meats and seafood. Mashed potatoes very runny. VERY expensive at $49.00 per person, cocktails also on the high price end. If you go to their web site and register, they send you a $20.00 discount coupon.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome! must try!It was my first time and I thoroughly enjoyed Chima! I was an amazing experience!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentExcellent Brazilian restaurant. Amazing steak and salad bar5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dining experience...Upon arriving at Chima, we were greeted cheerfully and quickly
and escorted to our table. Our servers Sula and
Eddie explained the concept to us and were outstanding in
their attentiveness and demeanor throughout the evening, as were
the rest of the staff we encountered, despite the fact
that the restaurant was full and they were all very busy.
We had a great time and a wonderful meal!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingA crew member recommended Chima. I always wanted to try the Brazilian style dinning. I love meats and the cuts are all prime.
It's was a magnificent experience, I enjoyed it so much I took my boyfriend a day later. He said we're coming back here, he loves it.
Dawn was just amazing and on top of everything. You can tell she enjoys what she does. I can go on but now I have to het my family to come here for a group dinner. Yeah. Sharing the love.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMChima's experiencewhen we were first seated it took a while for someone to come around but once we informed the waitress we wanted lamb, she put the order into a handheld gadget and the servers stopped by continually. Great food but a little salty.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBoth the food and the serviceBoth the food and the service were excellent. The noise level was very high maing it difficult to talk at the table and to understand the servers when they came to the table. A really good choice for big appetites as there was a lot of food.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food, beautifulExcellent food, beautiful entrance, and we had a quiet space in the front of the restaurant for an intimate and quiet dinner. Our reservation was late (9:45pm) because we decided to come at the last minute and it worked out beautifully.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic!!This was my third time at Chima's. I brought two friends who were visiting me from Sao Paolo who had never been to Chima's... they loved it. One commented to me that it was as good as any Churaskariah (?) in Brazil.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome experience!Chima was an awesome experience. The selection at the salad bar was amazing and the service was outstanding. The only wrinkle to our evening out was a couple cuts of meat were a little greasy. I would recommend Chima to anyone who enjoys fine dining and is adventurous. When I come back to Ft Lauderdale I will be sure to visit Chima again.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMMust try in Ft. LauderdaleWe were thoroughly impressed by the selection of meats and grand salad bar. Everything was fresh and delicious. The technology used by the servers ensured that our plates were never empty. The outdoor decor welcomed us as soon as we stepped thru the gates. We dined and imbibed for hours and never felt rushed. This dining experience was truly unparalleled.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe restaurant's food andThe restaurant's food and service are very good. One area for improvement is the reservation pontuality, I made a reservation for Saturday night at 8 PM and I was there 5 minutes before and the table was occupied. I was called at 8:25 PM and seated at 8:30PM. This is the third time that I used Open Table to make a reservation at Chima and the third time that happen, I believe it is a disrespect of my family's time.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was great. Ambiance isFood was great. Ambiance is great. Love the outside. The TV's outside are a nice touch. Live music was good. Our waiter was a little pushy. He made us try some things that we really didn't care for instead of getting us what we asked for. Every other server that stopped at the table was excellent. Overall good experience.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMthis was my second trip tothis was my second trip to Chima and i must say it was as memorable as he first time. i made a & oclock reservation and when i arrived i was seated immediately, greeted immediately by the wait staff and made to feel very very welcome. Food was amazing, as always. I have already begun recommending to my friends and look forward to going back again.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThis place has a the bestThis place has a the best meats!!! fresh and tasty, the salad bar is very good!! a must try!! great for a special ocacion!!!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMLucyGreat unlimited food! The salad bar was amazing. The meat delicious. Great place to go for special occasions.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were on our honeymoon andWe were on our honeymoon and wanted a nice dinner out. This was the perfect place.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMBe Selective about your meats.Brazilian steak house. Some meats were off the charts great, others were just average. Be sure to get very small portions on the first round so you know which ones you really want to dig in to. The creamed potatoes are great and don't be afraid to ask for more cheesy biscuits.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Brazilean Steakhouse in FLLthis is one or maybe the best Rodizios or "churrasquerias" in South Florida. They close at 9pm in Sunday, my reservation was at 7.45 and I got my table on time, the place was at 75% full at that moment, however after 8pm we start seeing most of the tables checking out and the service slow down a little, anyway a really good place and I'll go back anytime soon. My favorite, the picanha, the sirloin and the Filet Mignon; the salad bar was awesome. Valet Parking rate $5 (reasonable). Very nice experience overall.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
