Chima Brazilian Steakhouse - Washington
Amazing salad bar and deliciousAmazing salad bar and delicious meats :)
The service was fast and friendly!!
Definitely a must go.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat as always!!!!Always a great meal!!! Service was top notch. Food is delish as always6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently great food!I brought my best friend here for her birthday and even though we are repeat diners, we are always delighted by the food and the service. If you're not much of carnivore, the salad bar doesn't disappoint at all. You honestly can't lose with Chima's.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMEat well but be preparedYou have the option to eat only the salad bar (which includes carpaccio, cheeses, ham, meat-filled fejioda, rice) and the grilled fish. Or you can gorge on all of that AND the grilled meats: pork, beef, chicken, and sausage. If you opt for the latter, i recommend a vegetarian and fiber-rich diet in the days before and after the event at Chima. Even if you have only the smallest piece of half the meats, you will hurt the next day. In a way, you won't care. The meat is PERFECTLY grilled and well-seasoned. It can be noisy when they are busy, so it is not a place for an intimate dinner, but i'm sure you can call and ask for the quietest times/tables if you have something like that in mind. Attentive service!6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMSo much amazing;y tasty proteinsA group of 6 us went to Chima and what we call getting our meat babies on. It's a lot of grill meats. Amazing array of perfectly cook to order meats. Plus some great side dishes and an buffet bar of salads, cheeses, and soups, etc. You can even put in a request for certain meats if the gauchos haven't stopped by your table. The down side was that we had requested the fish to be sent over. We waited for 45+ minutes in order for it to arrive, only for it to be cold. During the 45+ minute wait, the servers would check in on us multiple times, but no fish. It had gotten to be that all our plates were empty, waiting for the fish to arrive. If nothing else, it helped our dinner to settle, but there was no need for us to wait as long as we did.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat in Every Way! Thanks Oz!My brother and roommate came to Chima last Friday and had the best time! the food was amazing and so was the service. Our server, Oz, was AWESOME! Funny, and really made us feel welcome and at home! 10/10 - will definitely pass on Texas De Brazil to go back to Chima!!!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, Great service!Chima was a good find! We found ourselves comparing it to Fogo De Chao in DC. Both places have great food. I did enjoy the ambience of Chima just a tad bit better than Fogo because it's seems to be a little more spacious. The service at Chima though was excellent! Our server Vini was on point from the moment we were seated at his table. The servers who bring out the meats were more friendly and talkative, loved it! We went for my husband's birthday and at the end they came out and song to him and presented him with a birthday cake compliments of Chima. He was embarrassed, but I loved it. The location is nice and they offer complimentary valet parking, loved, loved, loved that! If you like Fogo, you will love Chima as well.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMaswomeLove the steaks. quick on the ball to bring you your favorite steak5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat experienceThis restaurant is great unfortunately pricey but It's worth at least a try. You'll enjoy it. BTW you see meet everywhere :)5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMA little foo noisyThe noise level is high. Add to this the periodic singing of 'happy birthday' by he waiters and it is really too much. For me, this is an American custom promulgated by the worst of the chain restaurants. It has no place where class of service and food is supposed to be top notch.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great time celebratingHad a great time celebrating my daughter's 30th birthday. staff was prompt and courteous.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMReturn BoutOur previous experience prior to our comeback was disappointing because the meats were overly cooked. Our experience this time was a total 180. My daughter & I came for the house specialty, the top sirloin, and the rack of lamb. They were done the way we love it, medium rare. Our meat carver, Atef, was a perfectionist. He came back twice just to make sure he got it right for us. His attention to detail was impeccable. Mary Jane, our waitress was also very attentive. Kudos to the staff for making my birthday a real treat. We will be back.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic AmbienceChima was fantastic, the entire environment is perfectly constructed and the service was top notch. I could have spent hours there letting meat fall onto my plate but my wife finally made me thrown in the towell. The staff was also very accommodating in catering to a special birthday request5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMAll of the waiters were veryAll of the waiters were very attentive. Great atmosphere.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentEverything about this resturant was excellent. My wife is from Brazil and she loved everything. If she says its good then i know i would like it.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I celebrated ourMy wife and I celebrated our 25th anniversary here. Our waiter Oz was fantastic as was the rest of the wait staff. The gouchos were readily there to provide the fantastic meats and the salad bar was awesome. I would recommend Chima to anyone.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMBetter when not a holiday!The hubby & I have gone to this location a couple of other times & when it's not a holiday & during the week it is a whole different experience. A much better experience! Would recommend this place during the week. Made a reservation for 5:30pm, got 1000 points, & went a bit earlier for the happy hour at the bar which was lovely.
We were the first ones seated in the dining area. It was very cool having the meat just circle around us for the first 20min before there were other tables seated. Felt very important & spiffy!
Plan on returning when I get the craving of meat!!!! Yum5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMA Special Place For Special PeopleLove the food and atmosphere. Bring your love one.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMothers DaysChima is wonderful for special occasions. We always enjoy the food and the salad bar is amazing. However, it is very expensive, hence, an annual event.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day DinnerFirst time to dine here and we were not disappointed. Salad bar was out of this world! Plentiful with lots of delicious, fresh choices that you wouldn't normally see on a salad bar.
Wait staff was attentive without hovering. Meat selections were excellent, well cooked and flavorful. Definitely will return, but save for a special occasion, as it is a little pricey, but well worth the money.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMstuffed...The food is Great steak ribs chicken all types cant go wrong with Chima take her there if you want to impress her. It is a little pricey 58$ per person but well worth it 5× better than Feugo de chou except for the salad bar that could be better.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent RestaurantThis was my second time going to Chima Steakhouse, in part because I wanted to ensure that the restaurant was as good as it was the first time. I can honestly say that this is now one of my favorite restaurants! The quality of the cuts of meat they offer are superb. The salad bar is always stocked. The drinks are delicious. The ambiance is excellent.
I will definitely recommend this place to friends and family.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and excellent serviceThis is my second Brazilian steakhouse and Chima is the better one. Food is great and service surpassed expectation. The meat never stopped coming. The waiter got us the meat we wanted when we thought we had to wait. We asked for water, expecting tap water, and was surprised that we were charged $6.50 a bottle (about 1L). Don't remember seeing that on the menu. Otherwise, had a great time. Will definitely go back again.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day DeliteAnother great dining experience--the meats and salad bar par escellance.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFantasticI brought my fiance here for her birthday dinner, among with two very good friends. We were all blown away by the quality of the food. While we are all fans of Texas de Brazil, we do find the meat there oversalted; not the case at Chima. We will definitely be returning.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this place!This year, I chose to go to Chima to celebrate my 30th wedding anniversary. As always, we had great service, great food and a wonderful time. You can never go wrong at this place.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's DayTook the family here for Mother's day. Eating here is more than just going out, it is a great family experience! The food is amazing and plentiful but the bets part is the fantastic service. You don't have a server, you have a team of servers and the meat chefs. The kids loved trying all the meats and found the swordfish to be a real treat.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMimpressed. ..This is my second time at the restaurant, and I still haven't found a dislike with chima!! Great food, drinks, and ambiance. ...5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMMeatlover's paradiseSaw the menue on line and could not resist to give this place a try. In retrospect perhaps not the ideal romantic place for our anniversary , but it was a totally different experience and worth every bite. We will defiantly come back with our kids and a group of friends. Did not care about the large screen TV showing some kind of concert - the volume was turned off and all we saw was skinny women - not something I want to see while eating a month worth of meat! Turn off monitor or have the sound on! The waiters seemed to be frantically roaming around the room - left me wonder a bit about the quality of the food.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent meal and service.Excellent meal and service. Salad bar can be purchased alone or in combination with the meat and fish selections that are brought to your table. The full meal, salad bar and meats is $50. Well worth it. The salad bar is probably 75 linear feet of fresh garden and seafood salads, cheeses, vegetables, soup, beans, beats. Well you get the idea.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesomeI took my fiance here for his birthday and we absolutely loved it! The atmoshpere was so romantic and the service was impeccable! We definitely plan on revisiting very soon!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my wife and my secondThis was my wife and my second time here and we brought two of our children with us. The food was as good as last time but my wife and I felt the service from our waiter and waitress were not as good as last time. We only saw the waitress once maybe twice and felt a little neglected.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMCome Hungry!Service is always good. Everyone is attentive and responsive.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMCustomer serviceOverall experience is great! Only one thing, we felt so embarassed by the receptionist who guided us to our table. She is so tactless when she said I being the female guest should be sitting against the wall and not my husband. But my husband is suffering from back pain. She made my husband look so ungentleman? Why? She should not be suggesting to guests which side of the table should a man or lady sits. Just show the table and let them feel comfotable. And let the guests know that the food server assigned to their table will be available in a few minutes.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner for oneI usually dine at Chima with a group of friends, but this time I went by myself. It was just as great. The staff was very accommodating and I had a delicious virgin caipirinha.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMI love Chima!My boyfriend and I have been to Chima 3 or 4 times this year and it never disappoints! The food is fantastic and the staff is friendly and helpful. Definitely opt for a reservation on the weekends- it gets really crowded- and go with an empty stomach!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThe salad bar alone is enough.The salad bar alone is enough. Everything was fresh. The service was very good.Very nice setting. I would go to this restaurant again and again. This is a great place for a special occasion. Be prepared to eat. The deserts were very good.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingThe food, service, ambiance, and noise level was all perfect. This was my first time their, I was there with my family (a group of 6) and we were attended very well. I will be returning to Chima again.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMI say that this is a goodI say that this is a good place for a special occasion because of the price. Three of us dined for $230 including a tip. It is all you can eat salad bar and carved meats, but just how much carved meat can you justify for everyday dining? The meat tends to be on the salty side. The vegetable rice was flavorless and the black beans were not too great either. The vegetable soup was actually vegetable puree. Texas D Brazil is much better (beans and rice are really good and the Lobster Bisque is outstanding).4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial OccasionService is superb! Selection is spectacular! A great way to celebrate a special occasion!!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food loved the buffetExcellent food loved the buffet style of bringing meats to you. Customer service was great...everyone helpful and attentive...definitely a one team environment and it shows...my boyfriend actually said it was almost way too nice as a joke. We were both impressed and will definitely go back. It was his first time and my third. Outstanding!!!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMhave been coming here forhave been coming here for years now and the service has always been great. The food is excellent, my favorite aside.from.the endless meat is their salad bar. Tried the creamy vegetable soup for the first time, loved it!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMStill good but has become priceyStill great dining experience but a $10 hike in the price is a bit over the top so we now have to think twice before going as we are already light eaters. However, I do still highly recommend dining here as the quality of the food is very good and the servers are very attentive. The salad bar is the best.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMA Job Very Well Done!Our group was thrilled with the quality of the food (including the salad/soup bar) and the outstanding wait staff, which was not only helpful, fun and friendly, but knowledgeable about the food and wines as well. A job very well done. Thank you!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat selection of meats--allGreat selection of meats--all tasted terrific. Waitstaff was attentive, provided terrific recommendations.
