"friendly warm atmosphere & amazing service. Our menu is diverse focusing on freshness and simplicity .Featuring an extensive selection of wines by the glass & bottles & our superb cocktails .
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.
Holy crap.. unexpectedly good.. give it a shot
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.
Outstanding food and service...u can't tell from outside but inside is very nice.
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.
This is my favorite restaurant in New York State! You must try it!
Excellent every time!!!
Everything was perfect. Thank you
Great food, ambiance and value. I’d highly recommend.
I have been to Chachama Grill three time so far and each and every time the food is delicious! The ambiance is perfect. It's the perfect place for a date or a small intimate party. I cannot wait to go back!
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.
Love this restaurant: near; great service and food. 5 star restaurant! Can’t find too many in the area; but glad to found this one!
We usually go for dinner, but this time it was for lunch. We were offered both menus! It was a delicious meal with fantastic service. It’s nice to have a restaurant open for lunch on Mondays.
WE returned to Chachama for another wonderful meal. A little busier and louder than usual, but the experience was well worth it. A great place - impeccable service and wonderful food.
First time at Chachama and we will definitely be going back. My husband and i were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary and once the staff got wind of it they went all out to make it extra special with champagne, candles in our dessert ,music and singing!!! It was so unexpected and really made our night so special!!!! Food and service were all outstanding!! Cant wait to go back on a Thursday to try the latim menu 😀
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.
Incredible food and service . Chef is a master at his craft. We loved it
Great experience, rack of lamb was great and the scallops were really good. Service was outstanding!
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.
Such a nice night ! Greeted, coats taken, and sat in a timely manner. service was excellent. The food was delicious from the bread all the way to the desert.
The service was excellent. Food was delicious. Making reservations was easy and we didn’t wait when we got there. The waiters were respectful and attentive. The food came hot and quickly. The margaritas were great. I can’t wait to go next time.
Simply fantastic. The service was spot on and the food cannot be beat.
Excellent food and service. Surprising gem in a strip mall!
Always a great meal here. The roasted meats are excellent, all the fish dishes are great. The service is outstanding, everyone treats you like family.
This is one of the best restaurants in New York!
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.
We went during restaurant week. The selections were for restaurant week were excellent and the portions generous. The service is superb. This was our first visit but we will definitely return.
Great food and service
I’ve been here a few times, always great food excellent service
Average. Didn't seem to match what people are saying about the place. Just average.
A hidden Gem!
This is one of my very favorite restaurants. The food is well prepared, a bit different from the usual, and the service is always excellent. I have been there many times and have never been disappointed.
Awesome dining experience as usual!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Excellent food, friendly service quiet environment beautiful atmosphere
First time there for party of 4. The only time that worked happened to be early, during the Saturday night price fixe, which actually worked out great since that kicks the value way up. All courses were really quite good, and each were interesting in their own way. (Main courses were duck, pork, tuna and salmon) I would certainly recommend going there and we will be going back again.
