Host and hostess had trouble finding our reservation. Seated we found the tables crowded and restaurant noisy. Place was dimly lit making menus difficult to read
Servers slow to deliver drinks and never asked about refills until the meal was over
Food was good. Chicken served with great sauce and prawns sweet and tender with flavorful sauce

Food was mostly very good. I had the osso buco, which was excellent. My wife had the halibut that came with, what we believe to be, some sort of eggplant purée. The fish was truly scrumptious but the eggplant was a little weird. Service was polished and attentive, though there were very few patrons present. Ambiance was relaxing and quite pleasant. I would definitely revisit this restaurant again.

Although Chachama is located in a strip mall, once you enter, you find yourself in a lovely, higher-end restaurant. The wait staff is attentive and the food is original, interesting, well-prepared and delicious.
The price-fix menu is a bargain.

The place is small and comfortable a bit pricey. Our server she was inattentive and missing . Had to order drinks from the water and bread guy. Food came and had to wait for server to ask for salt n pepper. Then wait to order a second glass of wine . Then wait for a dessert menu . We were going to order dessert but had to wait so long for her to return after getting dessert menu Just asked for check . Not likely to return food was very good but the lack of service put a damper on the evening .

We really enjoyed the Chachama Grill. We had some delicious appetizers, and entrees were filet mignon, salmon, chicken, and rack of lamb. I thought the rack of lamb was a little light on content for the price, but everybody agreed the food was delicious. Dessert was the creme brulee and chocolate cake, again, delicious. Service was really great, nice little touches that make this restaurant stand out from most Long Island restaurants. We will be back. You should try it !

I went on restaurant week and ate off the price fixe menu - however my friend ate off the regular menu so she and I switched up our appetizers and I got the burrata with the much delicious creamy mozzarella and eggplant - there could have been less cheese and more eggplant but it was delicious - my entree was delectable short ribs and creamy smooth homemade potatoe puree - dessert was coconut flan which was so so so yummy but I would have liked a little more drizzled chocolate on top - overall my dinner was outstanding and will go back for certain

As always, I had the spectacular Duck Breast, medium rare with black rice and chutney; always perfect !

There are no bad choices here and you cannot beat the $45 prix fixe on the days it is available.

Enjoy!

I LOVE Chachama. The staff are friendly yet professional and attentive. The food if amazing. Had the pumpkin with quail appetizer; absolutely delicious. And the pork tenderloin was tender and presentation, as always...hit out of the park. If they have it, try the rice pudding, although it's usually only served on Latin Night ( Thursday)

I always look forward to eating here because the food & service are exceptional. Recently, the restaurant closed for approximately a month or so due to staff shortages. So when I went back after the reopening the service was not up to the level it was at for the past 5 years. This was probably due to new hires. Tonight, we had exceptional service (Marco) and of course the food was outstanding. The prix fixe is obviously a great deal. It was nice to sit outside too. Although heat lamps can be turned on it was warm enough that we didn't need it.

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful!!! We were celebrating a surprise birthday party and it exceeded my expectations. The prix-fixe menu is unbelievable and offered something for everyone--including those who are gluten-free. We all ordered different things and everything was out of this world, from the oysters to the burrata, the salmon to the salad. And those were just the appetizers. The entrees were equally delicious. The halibut, bronzino, pork tenderloin and duck breast were simple terrific. Nothing was left on any of the plates. Napolean, creme brulee and chocolate cake were the perfect ending to a perfect meal. The staff was lovely and accommodating. Dpn't ever hesitate to go to Chachama. It's earned its sterling reputation!!

As always the food was very good. Everyone in our party enjoyed everything they were served. The only Negative was the lack of service. We had to go looking for a server at one point to try and order dessert. Unfortunately there were only two persons waiting all of the tables, and the restaurant was full. I believe that is more of a sign of the times and not as much of a ding against the establishment.

Food was excellent. All folks in our party enjoyed the appetizers, entree and dessert. We ordered two bottles of wine as well. They did not have our first selection of wine so we ordered a second choice. The service was ok but not intentive. Overall a good experience but not great.
