Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "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"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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 !!"

  • "Great service. However, we needed to tell our server on more than one occasion to get the "meat" guy to come by. Other than that, it was fantastic!"

  • "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!"

  • "Dined at China's for dinner with spouse. The staff was friendly and attentive. The gaucho's were very attentive to the need for additional meat and the food was delicious and plentiful, including the salad bar. The sides they bring you (hoping to fill you up so that you eat less meat), were delicious and refilled instantly. "

  • "This restaurant seems to be a hot spot in the city. Crowdy the friday we went there, there was groups dining also in a separate room. It's a huge restaurant, and at the rush hour you can't access the buffet without waiting like pinguins ... really not classy ... And the meat wasn't so good : salty, fat, not cooked at order as they say : I like it rare and even when I asked for it, they gave it well done ... some items just never arrived. Price list is amazing, but the prices are just stupid : you pay 60 a bottle you can get for 8 at te supermarket ! For 250 for 2 I could have much better than this !"

Also, please tell the men that serve the drinks and hors d'oeuvre not to pass them over peoples heads. Some of my guests got their heads wet a couple of times. What is that? Really? Chima????!!"

  • "I've eaten here before and this time brought friends. We were so disappointed in the food! The lamb chops tasted fishy. I've never tasted anything worse in my life. I continued to ask for the garlic steak that I've normally had multiple times. By the time it came to me 20 minutes later it was so burned it was inedible. (And I asked for medium). Also it was obvious a manager knew the couple behind us. She was there for 20 minutes talking (very loudly!) and it was really disrupting as she was standing so close to me I bumped her every time I went to cut my food. And not once did a manager as us how everything was. Definitely a letdown. "
