Always warm and welcoming...food always delicious. We didn't feel our waiter was the best. My friend wanted him to ask the chef to make an dinner portion instead of appetizer size. He just went right over it....kind of strange. Then my other friend and I split a salad. It was unusually small. The women at the table next to us ordered the same salad and it was significantly bigger????? Not sure what that was about. Husband martini was perfect..Lemon Drop was good but had very little alcohol.

Returned again to Chachama. Specials of Peconic bay scallops and venison chop were outstanding. Great service as usual. We drive more than 30 minutes to eat here and it is worth it.

I've been here a few times on special occasions and it has always been top-notch: the food , the service and the ambiance are all worth the little extra cost. The hostess, Kim, is so pleasant and friendly. The food and drink presentation could not be better. Definitely a place for that special date or special occasion!

The food was more than excellent! The service was pleasant, respectful and friendly from the moment we walked in to when we left. Tables a bit too close together because the dining room was small and intimate. Prices a bit higher than I am used to, but quality food made it worth the money.

Pleasant environment, creative cuisine very well prepared and presented.outstanding selection of appetizers including squash soup, shrimp cerviche, oysters Rubio. Hard to choose. Also nice selection of mains. Eaten there on multiple occasions and always enjoyed it. They have a prix fixe menu which includes any of the appetizers, any main course, and any dessert for $40 (except for a surcharge on a few main courses), which is an outstanding bargain. Also a nice selection of wines by the glass. Highly recommended.

We arrived early for our dinner reservation and they graciously accommodated our party of four early even though they seemed full on a Saturday night. It seems like a family affair and everyone from the hostess to the table waiter was very attentive . The pace was perfect and the waiter seemed to immediately recognize when we were ready for another round of drinks. The food was excellent. We all ordered different appetizers and entrees and there were no complaints. Don't forget dessert- they were special also. I will definitely go there on our next special occasion.

this happens to be my favorite restaurant on Long Island. It starts with the Maitre De (not sure on my spelling) who makes this entire restaurant what it is. She came over to us and treats us like we are old friends. The service was spot on and the food was amazing. The chocolate cake desert is a must. Cant wait to go back.

This is a very good restaurant tucked away in a small strip mall. The ambience at night is cozy and intimate and the food is extremely good. The menu is interesting and offers a good variety of choices. It is well worth finding because it is definitely one of the top restaurants on Long Island but keeps a very low profile. Reservations are strongly suggested.

Chachama Grill is my new favorite restaurant for special occasions and date nights. Food is amazing, wait staff is wonderful, and they carry a Finger Lakes Riesling that I love! Have been four times now, and each time was a terrific dining experience. I recommend Chachama to everyone!

This was my second time eating at Chachama Grill and like the last time I was very impressed with the entire experience. The food is excellent, and the weekday price fix option is worth getting. My fried oysters and duck breast were just delicious. Adding a warm chocolate cake with ice cream was just the right touch and not excessively sweet. The wait staff is polite, helpful and allows you to enjoy your meal without being intrusive. I will definitely go back.

This lovely, elegant restaurant, unexpected in a mall in East Patchogue (easy parking!) has creative and delicious food. The service finds exactly the right balance between concern for your satisfaction and respect for your privacy. And from Sunday through Thursday there is a price fixe that is generous. Don’t miss the desserts!

Chachama never fails to please, impress, satisfy. When the craving strikes for a warm welcome, impeccable service, and excellent/creative food, Chachama Grill is where we go. A thousand kudos to all involved in the dining room as well as the kitchen! The food is why we come, and the experience is why we return.

Third visit and consistently an excellent experience. Upscale atmosphere, service and cuisine at reasonable prices. Gratis fresh baked roll, crispy outside, warm inside, with brown sugar/ garlic butter when we sat down. Special of quail served over a mini pumpkin stuffed with creamy porcini risotto was a facebook worthy presentation. Rack of pork off regular menu was a huge pork chop on the bone, cooked perfectly and not dry even though ordered medium well. The special dessert of pumpkin creme caramel was not too sweet and had lots of pumpkin flavor. It was served with fresh cinnamon whipped cream and a cranberry biscotti.

Great food and presentation. Small local neighborhood restaurant tucked away in a strip mall in East. Patchogue. Varied menu with something for everyone. The only issue I had was the gentleman who took our drink order was annoyed my husband asked for a drink that was not on their cocktail menu (Sweet Dewars Rob Roy with a twist). Told him he should order what was on the drink menu. My husband has been ordering this drink for years, and never has any restaurant ever once had any problem. Drink came, no twist. When we asked for the twist, we just got lemon. My cocktail was way too sweet. Aside from drinks, the food was very good and I would highly recommend it. I had the porkchop was moist and delicious and my husband's steak was perfect. Our waitress was very sweet and attentive. At the end of dinner, they put a candle in our dessert to celebrate our anniversary. Nice touch. I especially liked their tea presentation in the little tea pot. no Lipton here!
