  • "The restaurant is very nice although the table that the gave us was at the entrance so there was a lot of traffic all the time and we had made reservations....very good food, romantic ambiance, service, music but very pricey for it so it's not to go frequently ...Also they close very early...."

  • "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."

  • "I took my wife here for her 34th birthday and she loved it! We actually also took my 2 yr-old son and he sat through a large part of the dinner (btw he loves steak). We all had a wonderful time as a family. Definitely recomend. P.S. the Caiprinhas are great!"

  • "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!"

I had mentioned when I made reservations that we would be celebrating our friend's birthday and that she had drive 7 hours specifically to have birthday dinner at Chima's - her favorite restaurant. While we were enjoying our after dinner coffee they brought her a dessert with candle and wished her happy birthday. Very appreciated!"

  • "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"

  • "We visited the restuarant during our one night stopover in Fort Lauderdale before joining a cruise next day. It was also to celebrate my wife's Birthday. It was our first Brazillian steak house experience and all I can say is Wow, wow, wow! Yes it's expensive (about $50 a head) but for a special occasion it's perfect. The amount of meat provided and more importantly the quality of meat provided is just outstanding. You also get access to a very large sald bar, which is also unlimited. We also purchased a very special bottle of wine which complimented the meal perfectly. We were a family of 4 including 2 teenage sons and we were all taken aback at the overall experience. The service was second to none."

  • "I have eaten at plenty of Brazilian Steakhouses and this one impressed me up until their menu(the actual little piece of paper, and the meat list). No sides on the bar, some very basic potatoes, and not very high end meat cuts for the price. I normally eat a lot of food when I eat, and at only made one pass to the salad bar, and one round of meats and I was done. Sommelier was great though, awesome wine choices made things a bit better. Would go back with a group, just not on a birthday dinner. Nice overall restaurant though."

  • "Diego and his team provided excellent service. Truly made the dining experience above and beyond"
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "The ambiance, decor, and salad bar were excellent, the service was superb. There was one important problem, however. All of the meats, with the kind of obvious exception of the chicken and the sausages, was tough, terribly chewy. We have grown accustomed to, and expected, the high quality of soft meats we have found as any number of Brazilian steakhouses."
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "My wife and son took me for father's day and it was a unique experience. Very professionally run, really great service, great wine list, and great food. A beautiful salad bar and endless meat courses. The filet Mignon was wonderful as was everything else we tried. The pork ribs were OK but not the fall off the bone kind. We saved room for dessert, the molten lava cake, and the cappuccino was the best we both ever had. Will go back soon to try more meats."
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "Our first time together at Brazilian steakhouse and the food, ambience and service was the best! Enjoyed the variety at the salad bar --would have preferred some times hot to go with the steak... could have added these two vegetables (broccoli and asparagus) would have made perfect! The staff were impeccable from beginning to end. Congrats to them will definitely recommend to our many friends/family that come to Fort Lauderdale every year !!"

    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "After reading all positive reviews, went there to celebrate Father's day, When we got there they took us to the back of a very dark, low ceiling room . We requested to change the table. We have been to Texas De Brazil in many different locations, and I have to say their interior and service much, much upscale . This place looks more like a fast food chain, the tables without linens. If you don't care about ambience and service you may enjoy this place, otherwise I would not recommend it. The meat was just the same as other places, but service was slow. Definitely not worth the price. Usually I don't leave negative reviews, but I hope this will help somebody not to go there for a special occasion."

  • "I took my husband for Father's Day. Fantastic experience - the wine, the buffet, the gauchos and their various cuts of meat, dessert and everything! To my delight they offered not only meats but also fish and chicken for us non-meat eaters. Everything was excellent. I would give them five stars except for one thing: all their menu and drink items are on tablets which each server controls. Since I could not see prices, that element of choice was removed from me. I neglected to verify what was included in the brunch and what was not. Not doing that let me in for a surprise when the bill came. Still it was a great experience."

  • "Went to Chima's to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday.(I wrote this on the reservation notes.)The food was awesome and the service was amazing. We were stuffed but still made room for the tiramisu that they brought to the table as a surprise. We were not charged for the dessert and they took a picture, printed it and placed in a frame. Nice touch! Pricey but well worth it!"
