Went there with group of friends. Service was good, food was delicious, women’s bathroom leaking. Overall good place to celebrate special occasion. A bit pricey but once in a while worth it. Enjoy!

Fabulous dinner with friends. Comfortable seating, low noise level allowed for conversation. We started with cocktails, very well made. I had the oysters Rubio and scallops with homemade fettuccine, my friends had duck breast and jumbo shrimp with risotto. Food was excellent and well presented. Deserts
peach cobbler and flan with coconut and mango sauce were superb. Great place for special occasion dinner, we had price fixe menu, a little expensive but worth it. We shall return.

This is a very good restaurant for this part of Long Island. It is not cheap. The food and wine is outstanding. The environment is quiet. It is excellent for dinner. The wait staff is knowledgeable. It is worth going to this restaurant.

Excellent. We were a table for four and everyone loved their apps and though their entrees were exceptional. We have been coming here a lot this summer and decided to introduce our friends to the restaurant. Device is professional and the pace was wonderful. We had a bottle of Spanish Tempranillo which you can also order by the glass. Delicious and a great compliment to the meal. Their standard menu has 3 or 4 entrees and apps that my wife and I love. They also have a special menu which changes the options. To top it off they have a price fix that gives you a NYC dining experience at a reasonable price. Our friends were thrilled. So were we,again.

Chachama Grill is one of our favorite restaurants and we go here for many special occasions as well as a regular meal with friends. The staff is attentive and the decor is much nicer than anyone would expect in this shopping center restaurant. The 3 course prix fix menu Sunday - Thursday(also early on Friday and Saturday) is a wonderful opportunity to select almost anything on the menu (some things have a small upcharge). I particularly recommend the Oysters Rubio as an appetizer and the pork with Tahitian vanilla sweet potatoes. Also, the salmon is terrific as is the crab and avocado appetizer.

This restaurant has had a recent renovation and looks clean and fresh. It's a pleasant surprise in a shopping center. Service was attentive and food really good. I had a lobster special price fixed meal that included lobster bisque, rich and delicious, a salad, a 2-pound steamed lobster, and sorbet for dessert, all for $55. An excellent value for a very nice meal! The restaurant was full by 7 PM, so make a reservation!

The restaurant is tucked away in a small nondescript shopping center. It has to be a destination location and a very pleasant surprise once you arrive inside. Our visit was very pleasant We were greeted very warmly and promptly seated. Appetizers were interesting. We shared a beets salad with goat cheese and it was not a favorite. Plenty of beet cubes very little goat cheese. The entrees were very nice; seafood, chicken, duck, steak and lamb. The entrees coming out of the kitchen were plated beautifully. We ordered lamb chops that were delicious. It was served with a square of potato and cheese and a little asparagus. The potato was not a favorite and was swapped out for mashed potatoes however they were very buttery, rich and soupy.
We were there celebrating a birthday and the staff made a beautiful birthday celebration.
Prices are not inexpensive howeve, the food is very good. The patrons looked like local residents or people who patronize this restaurant because of the food and make it a destination dining experience.

Chachama Grill was very nice. The food was excellent. My wife got the free range chicken and I got the rack of pork. We got the beef empanadas for appetizer. We split the Pineapple upside down cake for dessert. We were greeted warmly upon arrival and upon leaving. The staff was attentive, and efficient. The only small complaint is the menu could be more expansive. Although everything about the meal was very good I don't really have anything I would rush back to try.

We were seated in time for the Price Fixed 5:40 pm on a Saturday. Only a couple of tables were occupied.
I was excited to see a 2 pound lobster. I ordered the dish, only to be disappointed that they were already out of it! The lobster bisque was plentiful, except for the pieces of lobster.
My first experience there will probably be my last. It is also located in a run down shopping center.

Perfect. This time, each time and every time.
A gem hidden in a strip mall.
First time it will be unexpectedly good.
Each time after, Chachama performs food magic and exceeds expectations.

Service was friendly, professional, and attentive.

My husband chose this restaurant for his birthday after reviewing the website and reading the reviews. None of us had heard of it but decided to give it a try. All of the dinners were excellent. Small dining room and bar area but we had a reservation so it wasn't a problem. The table was ready within a few minutes of our arrival. We ordered a drink at the bar while we waited for those few minutes. The hostess was very kind and attentive throughout the night. Give it a try.

Great restaurant. Had the oysters and eggplant as an appetizer. Had the seafood risotto (ran out of the lamb) and duck as our entrees. Food and service were excellent. Overall. Very impressed with this restaurant and will come back again. My only pet peeve is that they should fix the sign in front of the restaurant.

Yes, the prices are a bit high, but everything is worth it. The service was a little slow this time, but it's the first time this has happened in more than 10 years of going there, so I'll cut them some slack. Everything on the menu is excellent. The Prix Fixe is a good way to go if you want to save a little, and you get just what you need.
