Wonderful food served by the most friendly and professional staff. The experience is outstanding every time we visit.

Don’t know which course was best - pure excellence through all three.

I was disappointed with my shrimp dinner. The shrimp was over cooked and rubbery. My husband’s beef dinner and my sons scallop dinner was delicious.

If you’re going for a special occasion it is not an impressive exterior location. The restaurant does a good job of blocking out the “strip mall” exterior once inside.

Service is spot on and it looks like the restaurant has a bunch of regulars which speaks to the consistency. The food was okay but not on par with restaurants in this price category.

Wasn’t a memorable meal but not bad either.

Good example, special of Lobster Pho has what looks like handmade noodles and good chunks of lobster but the broth was acidic and watery.

Completely fabulous as always with professional, efficient but unobtrusive service. We love that the chef is willing to accommodate special requests (within reason), and this is our favorite restaurant as the experience is always entirely delightful.

We have never been disappointed in the food or the service at this restaurant. The food is always delicious and presented beautifully. The wait staff is very attentive and pleasant. It is the type of restaurant where one would go for special occasions but with the reasonably priced menu it can be enjoyed "just because."

Chachama has been a favorite of ours for years. The food is often great, the room is lovely and the help is quietly attentive. My big complaint is a lack of awareness of dietary issues. My husband has celiac and he does better than I do with lactose intolerance. They will make what they can to suit, but it would be nice to have a menu that is aware of diet issues and have menu items that will suit and still be interesting to eat.

My wife and I have been coming here for years, it's a great place with great food and a comfy ambiance that feels very welcoming, which is due in part to the very well trained staff paying attention to your needs. It is like having a Manhattan style restaurant hidden in Long Island....
If you haven't tried it, go and give it a chance, you will be happy you did....

We have been to Chachama Grill many times over the past years. It is consistently excellent and never disappoints. The service is excellent and the food continues to excel. We are always happy with our meal and have brought many friends over the years.
I want to mention the rolls that they distribute which are very tasty and always a welcome beginning.
The prix fixe menu at $40 is a terrific buy and this time I selected one of the special appetizers as did my husband. I had the babaganosh and he had the lobster noodle salad. Both were terrific. For our main courses we each had one of our favorite dishes--he had the pork tenderloin with mashed sweet potatoes and I had the Shrimp with purple potatoes.
Bravo, once again.

Chachama Grill was recommended by a coworker. I was immediately taken by the ambiance and layout of the restaurant. The hostess was friendly and professional as were all of the staff.
The small touches such as the hot out of the oven bread with flavored butter in the table, the staff making sure water glasses were full and the silverware replacement with care and precision almost in ritual fashion.

My bisque was full bodied and just the right texture and temperature, and my scallops were flavorful and served with a fettuccini noodle and a vegetable.

I would have given 5 stars however my fettuccini was a bit bland and the music was not my taste.

Growing up in the restaurant business, small things make a difference....so if you want a memorable meal...and night out ... I would say go for it. Dinner for two with tip with a cocktail each dessert and coffee could be upwards of 200 but you are dining, and no one rushes you out.

It was our first time here and we finally remembered to go to this unassuming strip mall where the Chachama Grill is located. The food and the service was excellent. It is on the pricey end but you get what you pay for! It's a good for a nice quiet, romantic dinner and if you order a bottle of wine but cannot finish it you can take it with you!

This gem is a favorite. Never disappointed with the warm impeccable service...hard to attain, that, nor the delicious, creative food choices. I feel the price, for what you receive, is a bargain!
