  • "While some of the salad bar items were wonderful, the carved meat was universally fatty, and mostly over cooked or nearly raw. We kept asking for lean and medium or medium rare. They simply couldn't provide such a thing. Service ignored our empty cocktail/wine glasses despite our desire to reorder. Was able to get a manager's attention who brought us new drinks. We left the restaurant laughing at how poor the experience was. Better than crying."

Superb service and amazing food. I highly recommend Chima to anyone wanting an unforgettable dining experience."

  • "My father took my husband and I out for our first wedding anniversary and we could not have chosen a better location to celebrate! We have been here before so knew to pace ourselves but be mindful because its quick to lose track of that! The salad bar is to die for, everything was amazing! Do not miss out on the grilled artichokes, delicious soup, or the gigantic asparagus!! The presentation was fresh and appealing. The meat does not stop when your button is up. Don't miss out on the swordfish! The waiter was quick to recommend a wine near our budget. A bit high but we had zero complaints on our Merlot choice. The new sommelier recommended a fabulous dessert wine as well! we had a wonderful experience at Chima! Definitely recommended!"

  • "We always enjoy Chima, but it had been a several months since we had been there. We took some friends visiting from France and were pleased to find that Chima has added a sommelier, Larry, since we last visited. He recommended a similar wine (an Australian Shiraz) which was only $10 more than the wine we had chosen, but was at least 10x better. For our second bottle, we just went with his suggestion and were pleasantly surprised by an excellent Washington state Cabernet. Larry is exactly the type of sommelier that I appreciate. He listened to our preferences and recommended similar wines at a similar price points which were better quality wine. He made our dinner more enjoyable. Highly recommended!"

  • "We are a couple from Granby Québec, we come down for 2 months and never miss going to the CHIMA we love the food and the outstanding service. We always bring guests but we go to as a romantic dinner but a little bit Noisy. Should have a section of table or two to make it a romantic evening... But over all everything is just WOW... Thank you CHIMA and all the personnels, Lisa & Robet"

  • "Dinner at a chimas can described as an experience I won't soon forget and can't wait to get back too. All around it was awesome!"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Based on other reviews, I was expecting Chima to be better than other similar style restaurants. Unfortunately it was not. The only thing outstanding was the Sirloin, which was the best tasting item they had. Even better than the Filet and Ribeye. The Salad Bar was ok, and the sides were average. Like I said, I was expecting this to be better, but in fact, I was left unimpressed. It was good, just not up to the reviews I had read."

  • "For the most part the food was amazing, there were a couple steaks that were tough and I was very disappointed that they discontinued the Creme Brulee desert."

  • "Dinner was wonderful, the staff was very friendly, and the food was out of this world! My first time and I hope it not to be my last. Great ambiance even though it was a little loud at the start of the meal, after a few tables finished it became quieter again. Overall everything was perfect!"

  • "I came here with my wife while staying nearby during our honeymoon. The food was excellent and was very comparable to other Brazilian steakhouses. We were given large portions of each of the meats that came around to our table - because of this, we didn't even get to try everything! The highlight of the evening, however, was the service. Our waitress was top-notch, and was outrageously attentive to us. When we left, we were informed that someone had pulled into the valet parking lot and scratched our rental car. While inconvenient, the valet manager and the restaurant manager went above and beyond to make sure everything was taken care of."

  • "This was my wife and my third time to Chima which should show that we have had positive experiences in the past. This time when we were seated, I had to get up from the table and go to the hostess stand to ask for a waiter to visit our table after seeing two tables seated after us get their drink order taken before a waiter even brought us water. When the waiter finally did arrive, I was asked if I wanted to see the wine list which I did. He placed an electronic tablet in front of me and never made a recommendation or even told me how to navigate the list. Enough about the service which was poor at best from then on. Not only was the service poor, but the food was not up to standard. Will not be back again."

    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "The patio entrance to the restaurant is beautiful. It sets a great ambiance. Inside was full of diners and very loud. The service is excellent, however. The salad bar is a meal in itself. The meat was well prepared and there was a good variety. We were celebrating a birthday, and had an excellent special meal."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "I've never been a huge fan of Brazilian steakhouses until I found this one. Salad bar that will put any others you've tried before completely to shame. Great wine list and excellent meat choices. Filet, lamb and flank steak (believe it or not) were my favorites. Very nicely appointed and a beautiful outdoor area to enjoy an after dinner drink while listening to some acoustic guitar music. Younger crowds might not enjoy it as much as we did."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "This restaurant had great food and entertainment. I have never felt so excited about a Steakhouse before until Chima. The food was delicious and the service was spectacular. I would recommend this for a romantic night out with your significant other. The ambiance is perfect for that special occasion, what ever it may be."

  • "The food and service was amazing. We also had a special request that was given to us with courteous consideration. The courtyard area was a great place for drinks and enjoying the entertainment. It was definitely a 10+ evening."

  • "My girlfriend and I were referred to Chima, by a poor review of Brazavida on sunrise, and we are so glad! This is the place to go! The service was impeccable, the food exquisite and the wine excellent. Isadora, our waitress, was attentive, informative, friendly. Larry helped us pick the right wine for our taste and budget and we were not disappointed. The place is friendly, family style atmosphere which was great and our dinner was excellent. The meats are delicious and the salad bar ample. This will be a place we will visit frequently! I will recommend this place to all my friends and family!"

  • "Everything about Chima is wonderful. The "house" sits back from the street in a wonderful courtyard under a tremendous tree. The dining room itself whether by day or by night is formally attractive and at its center is a salad bar although one of my dinner companions said a new word had to be found for the one at Chima. The foods on it were not only fresh and/ or tasty but beautiful to the eye. And unlike many Brazilian restaurants of this type one could eat salmon and sword fish and not only cuts of tasty roasted meats. The desserts maintained the same high level of preparation. We had a ball.."

  • "I am a 'regular' in this style of restaurants and go to Chima whenever there is an excuse to do so (and it doesn't take many to make me go..). However, this time it was somewhat lackluster, compared to previous times I was there. This time it was way too busy and perhaps it's part of the reason why the service was lacking and so was the food. Waiter is trying to attend too many tables at once, forgetting our special orders, sometimes getting cold meet (that's been running around the tables and by the time it's gotten to our table, it got cold).. sometimes meat is charred as opposed to my specific requests of medium... And of course, the best Top Sirloin (the famous Picanha)? Well you have to ask for it..."

  • "This was our second time here....we brought our two boys with us this time....and some friends to celebrate our son's graduation. We had a great time....they couldn't believe all of the food that was brought out! Everything was delicious and the staff is as friendly and helpful as they can be. We have to save this restaurant for special occasions because it is expensive...but we'll definitely save up for this treat again!"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Fast all day to gorge on this awesome delight...all you can eat meat! And even though the salad bar has amazing choices...don't fill up on the non-essentials...cause it's not cheap! Sign up for their newsletters and get a coupon but not it's not good for the weekend including Fridays."

  • "Good food, great service, nice ambience! Overall a good place to visit for a normal (more expensive) dinner or a special occasion. You will definitely enjoy this place, just make sure you reserve a table ahead of time."

  • "My husband decided to surprise me on a date night. As we drove up, I was a little baffled as to the surroundings. It was not in Las Olas, and seemed to be a regular area. Once the valet took our car and he turns me around, my mouth dropped. It was a hidden gem!! As we walked towards the entrance, i honestly did not know if i wanted to eat outside or indoors, both seemed welcoming, even in this hot Florida sun. The food was amazing, the service i cannot explain. Every few minutes, my server and the water boy were around giving suggestions or just taking care of us."

  • "We went for a birthday and had a wonderful time. The food and wine were great. Our server and the hostess could've paid more attention to the fact that I mentioned more than once we had a birthday and would've liked a dessert or what they offered to celebrate. Other than the oversight, it was a lovely evening."

  • "I have tried many Brazilian Rodizio steakhouses, and this is at the top of the list. Not only were the meats extremely tast but the swordfish and salmon were equally as good. The appetizers, including plantations, cheese bread and yuca, were an extra added attraction. The salad bar was only adequate, but you shouldn't waste your time as everything else was wonderful. Can't wait to make another trip."

  • "My wife and I had a very good time. The only negative was a group at the next table that was extremely loud and annoying. We should have been seated at another location if the restaurant knew these individuals were coming."
