    Went to celebrate a colleague's 25 year anniversary with the company. Food, as usual, was very generous. Only issue was slos delivery of selected wines after ordering. After ordering the wine, we had to wait 15 minutes for the wine to be delivered, and then one of the wines was wrong. The delay got us off to a slow start. If not for this, the service was impeccable.

    If you like Brazilian Steakhouse food, I think this is the best in the area. I still miss Greenfeild's in Rockville and Fogo de Cho is WAY over priced, so best value in the area. Chima has upped there prices a bit, $165 for two persons with two drinks is on the high side, but still log it!

    If one leaves hungry, there's a problem. With an endless array of savory cuts of beef, moist chicken wrapped in bacon, and delicately prepared fishes streaming to your table while all being paired with the Mother Theresa of all salad bars, consider wearing pants that have an elastic waistline. On a more serious note, please arrive hungry, don't over-do-it at the salad bar, and pace yourself for the 16 cuts of meat that await you after the appetizer. The staff was on-point though my iced tea ran dry way to many times, I still give this establishment the highest endorsement among my carnivorous friends. Eat Well, my friends!

    The Salad Bar was rich & offers a good variety specially if you a Vegetarian in the group. The place was like a bee hive, waiters kept coming with skewers & every one in the group got the meat cooked to order. The Manager & supervisor asked if we needed anything. Dinner was a Delight.

    I went with my family - husband, two teen boys and my 11 year old daughter. It was my 14 year old son's birthday. We were given a little information from a friend on what to expect. The food was beyond our expectations! We were seated at the back of the restaurant and thought for sure we would be forgotten but so not the case!! The server was attentitive and we never felt like we were lost in the corner. I am vegetarian - I eat fish but not meat. I asked for a piece very rare and got the best piece of salmon. We were so happily surprised at this restaurant. The meat selections were marinated, cooked to perfection and varied. It wouldn't be our weekly pick but definitely our choice to celebrate an event.

    This restaurant provided a very fun experience. The lovely appetizers were delicious. The waiters were always on top of things and very accommodating. Sometimes the meat which is the main attraction was not as tender as I would have expected and some was absolutely delicious. It is pricey so if you can't eat half a cow, just go for the entertainment aspect.

    This place has a really nice atmosphere and has the freshest tasting food anyone could ever eat. They have a nice all-you-can-eat buffet with foods like specialty pastas, gourmet salads, soup, and more. At Chima, people will also come around and cut as much steak, salmon, or chicken as you like for you and your desired cooking level (i.e. medium-rare). Overall this is a fantastic place to eat.

    We went there for son's bday. We made the reservation and I noted in my reservation that I wanted the night to be a memorable night. Once we got there, they hostesses looked confused and didn't know where we were going to sit. One hostess that didn't seem to be quite professional and fit for the position took us to our table which was in a very dark area and at the end of the restaurant. The kids at the tables were out of control. They splashed drinks without any concern by the parents and they ran around (multiple tables) and cried. No waiter said anything to the families. This place was like a high end chuck e cheese. WE WON'T GO BACK THERE! It is not worth the money at all... The need to have separate place for family with young kids.

    Took the husband here for his birthday after not having been there for several years. The meat options are pretty ridiculous -- too many to count, so you can easily get your fill. Even if meat isn't your thing, the salad/sides bar is also easy to fill up on. I was pretty disappointed in the wine list however, especially per glass. Estancia for $10 a glass, J. Lohr for $12. Really nothing to write home about -- and they charged me an extra $3 on the Chima Cosmo for Grey Goose -- which I didn't ask for and isn't noted on the menu. Not that much, but certainly not cool.

    Very disappointing to see one of my favorite places not deliver so well this past weekend. Service right off the bat was lackluster with the waiter "German" simply not there to wait tables or be bothered in earning a tip. Kept us waiting for every part of the service, from wine and drink orders to other sides, and finally to even the bill, which he reluctantly brought over. Talk about a major disconnect! The meats, usually are the best around in the DC area, were dry/cold, even after repeat requests for certain cuts, we were presented with very tired cuts. This was peak time, we just don't get it. It felt like they had taken their success for granted. Hope the mgr sees this and shakes up the house a bit. We do want a reason to return!

    It was outstanding. I already passed this restaurant address and the best information to the teachers I work with and all my friends. I live in Stafford , VA but every time I have a chance, I will go back to Chimas. Originally, I'm from Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, where all the best Brazilian steakhouses are located and Chimas is, without no doubt, the best steakhouse(churrascaria). Thanks for the wonderful time. My family enjoyed Chimas in the same way I did.

    Dined on 8/21/2014
    Myself and three (3) friend took advantage of the Restaurant Week Promotion which was $35.11 assuming that it would be the same menu as their regular $50.00 price. To my surprise, after starting my meal I was told by the waiter that this promotion did not include lamb meats or several steaks. Which would have been acceptable had it been noted in the promotional ad that was emailed to me. We drove an hour that Thursday evening for dinner because we were expecting the same meal that we have gotten in the past for full price. Additionally we were not offered the salmon or sword fish until the very end of the meal even though I had mentioned it to the waiter. All that been said, the meal and service and food was outstanding as always.

Had to constantly request delivery of specific items. This establishment is very expensive .. needs to provide top shelf food and service all the time. If I return I would go early in the eve.

    It was Restaurant Week (08/20) during the time we came in and we had been here several times before. Service was awful- the rodizio servers were coming by every 10-15 minutes. We asked our server (Derek-team06) for specific seafood to be brought to us, they never did. It was extremely loud and the overall experience was sloppy and not efficient. The server disappeared several times and we did not see him frequently when we needed additional beverages. The lack of communication was awful that we could not wait to leave.We were there for 4 hours and needless to say, we will not be back anytime soon.
