Family dinner before moving away. The food was excellent: avocado crab salad was amazing with a lot of chunks of crab, and the sea scallops were very big and perfectly seared with the most delicious sauce. Each of us got a different dessert and although they were all good I liked the molten chocolate cake the best (I am a chocolate girl). You really can’t get a better value meal on Long Island than this outside of restaurant week. Don’t let the location fool you.

Don’t let the outside appearance deter you. This is a small family run restaurant with great staff & excellent food. We enjoyed our dining experience.

We’ve been to Chachama many times....never disappointed. The menu choices and specials were so enticing, we didn’t know what to order. Both of our choices of appetizers, entrees and desserts were absolutely delightful. You would never know what a hidden gem this place is! We’ll be back again soon!

Chachama is, by far, our favorite place to treat ourselves. While it can be pricey, if you go during the prix fixe menu times, you are getting a steal! The food is beyond amazing, we've never ordered anything were we didn't clear our plates! The service is impeccable! I suggest everyone go and give it a try if you haven't already.

Everything was delicious! Shrimp ceviche appetizer was super fresh. The scallops were delicious, and the layered chocolate cake finished the meal off nicely. Service was very friendly and accommodating. Great visit!

Excellent dinner. You must try the artichoke salad, buratta on crispy eggplant, fried oysters for apps. Halibut, duck and braised pork shank for entres and for dessert, the poached pear, and banana tres leeches. There is just something so special about Chachama -- the staff, food is superior and most of all Chef Elmer who has lead his staff to perfection. Thank you for another wonderful evening. See you again soon.

It is very small so on a Saturday night it was somewhat noisy. Service was ok, was surprised when server came to table at 10 to say she was leaving that her shift was over.
Read many reviews about owner walking the room and checking on tables. When I left she was sitting at bar eating and didn’t even acknowledge us as we left.
Food was very well prepared, the desserts were extremely small.

I've eaten at Chachama Grill many times over the past several years with friends and family, and each time was a delightful dining experience. The food was beautifully prepared and displayed, savory and generously proportioned. Service was always attentive and congenial, timed perfectly for a leisurely meal. The ambiance is elegant and relaxing, conducive to conversation. I look forward to future visits, especially for special occasions.

Saturday was my second time at Chachama grill. There were four of us in our party. I was really wowed the first visit. This time the entre"- 3 of us had the lobster was overcooked. Lobster tails overcooked are unpalatable. Appetizers that we all had were great. One other complaint- expand the list of cocktails.

The day we visited was Valentine’s Day. The restaurant had a fixed menu with many choices. The staff seemed overwhelmed and ill prepared for such a usually busy evening, most of the tables including ours table had at least a half hour waits between courses. We were there for three hours with the staff apologizing for the wait. We have been to this restaurant on other occasions and it has been good in the past. We were disappointed on this visit. On a positive note, the restaurant did not charge us for our drinks to make up for the long wait and less than stellar service.

I have been there many times. It is still my favorite restaurant on LI. Everything work and the food is simply the best. It is a good thing I don't live closer as my bank account would be soon depleted.

Pleasant servers. Timing of food and drink service very good.
Food was delicious with lovely presentation. The fish and pork were cooked perfectly! Seating was comfortable but a bit close to others tables. Unpleasant fishy odor upon entering the restaurant but did not detract from the meal.

The service in the restaurant was excellent. Unfortunately the bartender was unfriendly. When your opening comment is “whaddya want?” You are not going to get a good tip. Saying hello should be natural for those serving customers. When I asked for a wine list I received no response but her slapping the list on the bar.
