Diner Reviews
  • "Very very good food, we exagerated on the salad bar of course, the meats came flowing fast, we enjoyed the lamb, the chicken and the ribeye, which came by often and had seconds and thirds. We were stuffed by the end. During dessert I noticed Ribs, veggies, tenderloin wraped in bacon, flank steak..., none of these ever came to our table. Oh well, we were stuffed anyways. We enjoyed it."

  • "We eat at Chima a few times a year and it is always wonderful. The staff is great the food is fabulous and its a fun night out. My husband also brings business associates and clients and its always on the top of the list of places they want to go. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who enjoys beef and lots of it."

  • "Place is nice when u first arrive. Bit pricey for ok meat, nothing special about the place or the food. I know a similar place that charges $20 less per person and is the same, maybe better - they have piña!"

  • " Chima is one of my favorite brazilian steakhouses. Amazing food, Great service, Romantic ambience, but also fit for large groups or parties."

  • "Chima always delivers in terms of food quality, service, great environment and attention to details. We have come to Chima for years, always for special occasions as the food price + deserts + some bottle of mid-range wine drives an average fee of above $80 per person. Now, that great quality has remained constant through the years. So, you will certainly pay for the quality and the great food, but this is a highly recommendable place for those very special occasions."

  • "Chima staff was great and the cuts if meat were always coming out except we had to ask 3 times for lamb chops. Meats weren't as tender or flavorful as other similar restaurants auch as Fago de Chao or Texas De Brazil. Meat was not tender at all. Very disappointed especially for the price."

  • "Although is a little expensive, every penny that you spend in Chima worth it. The personnel and the food is amazing, please try the picanha, really nice meet."

  • "This is one of the best Brazilian steakhouses I have found! I'm so glad we tried this! Even at 9:30 on a Saturday night, this place was packed! The wine list was extensive and the waiter was very knowledgeable. Not usually a fan of salad bars, but theres is was so varied and gourmet, it was great. The meat that came around was just delicious and high quality in every respect."

  • "We were a group of 7, so I guess they just realized the tip would be added to the bill so they didn't have to be nice or pay attention to us. Rude and belittling man who barely spoke English. We will take out $600 bill and go to Texas de Brazil at least they respect their customers there."

Flank steak, sirloin, filet mignion, bacon wrapped chicken, bacon wrapped steak, ribs, short rib, saucisson, fish, you name it, it came, and often! Just be warned, if you can't have too much sodium, don't eat here. Although meat is well seasoned, it is high in salt."

  • "We love Chima, unfortunately our experience was ruined by another guest that dropped a table full of unruly kids off next to us. These kids ran wild literally and we're throwing food and ice water at each other. The parents never once stepped in to stop them or escort them out of the Resturant. Extremely bad parenting. I hope that they were banned from the Resturant."

  • "We went to Chima for my husband's birthday and took our 9 year old daughter who is a filet eater. We had an absolutely terrific time, from start to finish. Everything was perfect. The salad bar was amazing. The meats were fantastic and we were served the cuts exactly as we asked for them. My daughter ate more than my husband. They added a special complimentary dessert and framed photo for my husband's birthday. Friendly and attentive service. We will definitely be going back more often and would highly recommend to those who love to eat good quality meat!"

  • "Haven't been to this restaurant in over 10 years. Pleasantly surprised that it is even better than i remembered. The service was excellent. Our head waiter was very attentive, and the other servers were on the spot when you wanted the next helping of perfectly cooked meats and offerings. The salad bar offered unusual selections like quinoa salad with edamame that was delicious. Larry, the sommelier was knowledgeable and entertaining. He picked the perfect wine to suit all tastes at the perfect price for our table. I would go back again......this time I won't wait 10 years!"

  • "Good atmosphere with a great waiting staff. Chima is always great to have, along with the array of meats available, from the variety of beefs to ham, sausage, lamb, chicken, pork ribs, and caper sauced dipped salmon. Don't forget salads and sides from the buffet; thereafter commences a parade of waiters bearing roasted meats on skewers—often as many as twenty varieties in an evening. This place is amazing! Thank you"
