This restaurant is wonderful. The place is small and cozy, yet elegant. The food is gourmet delicious and beautifully presented. Staff and service is impeccable. My favorite restaurant.

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.

Love the food, though the menu is limited. The presentation and taste always far exceed the limited dish choices. I would highly recommend this hidden jewel.

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.

Simply love this place.

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.

There are so many restaurants in Patchogue but when you want the best you head to east Patchogue and go to Chachamas. It’s a hidden gem. Great food, service and atmosphere

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.

Service and food was outstanding. since it is located in a strip mall it is very easy to pass or dismiss.
I learned that would be a big mistake if you are looking for a fine dining experience.

Amazing food and service! Everything we ordered was delicious, unique, and prepared to perfection. We highly recommend the scallops and filet mignon for entrees, and, for dessert, the banana chocolate creme brulee.

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.

Lobster night was excellent. Our first visit since New Year's Eve which was very disappointing. Rushed and overbooked. If I was asked to review that night would have given 2 stars.

This is the best restaurant in Patchogue and its environs. Subtle, well-prepared good, lovely ambiance. The family that runs the restaurant is lovely and devoted to providing excellent service. It's in a shopping center, but once you pass through the door, you forget that. You think you're in New York City.

One of the best restaurants on Long Island having dined here often over the last 14 years. Creative, delicious cuisine at a fair price in a lovely atmosphere.....that's Chachama Grill. Park in the Shopping Center lot, walk through the entrance, and be amazed by the ambiance, food, and service!!!!

I've eaten at Chachama Grill several times and have never been disappointed. We've introduced it to many friends who are also fans now. My favorite? Delectable, crunchy morsels of the Oysters Rubio. The quail is also delicious and fun to eat :)

Chef Rubio is an "American Dream" story, coming here from El Salvador with nothing and now the Chef of his own fine dining restaurant. Don't be put off by its location in a big Shopping Center in East Patchogue. This is white tablecloth, varied American food which is delicious and looks like artwork.

The Duck with black rice is really wonderful and we have never had a bad meal here. They have a $40 prixe fixe during the week and its not a cheap version of their regular menu.

In season (now), there is a Lobster Bake for $40 and on Thursday he has a "Latin" menu, but on both days, you can still order from the regular menu instead.

Whether your dinner is giant shrimp, perfectly cooked pork, lamb or steak, you will be very pleased with the entire experience.

Don't fill up on the rolls and honey butter; they are freshly baked!

Enjoy, Len243

My husband and I had not been to Chachama Grill in a while, and we were pleasantly surprised to see the beautiful renovations. As always, we loved the food, and the service was top-notch as well. Though the tables were full, the restaurant was not at all noisy. It was my birthday, and I could not have asked for a more romantic and delicious dining experience. (And we were lucky enough to be there for the $40 three-course prix fixe menu - you can't beat it!)

Have been to this restaurant many many times and have thoroughly enjoyed it. But one thing has changed on their starters menu. They were known for the generous portion of their delicious Oysters Rubio. Unfortunately I and other diners will not be ordering them any time soon. What used to be full plump oysters are now cut into 6 pieces very small pieces. There is no hint of the briny morsels, and for $14 it’s quite a shame!

Best restaurant on Long Island. Hands down. The chef gets it! Staff was lovely and accommodating. A little pricey for going once a week but the food prep, love and care that went into each morsel of food were worth it. Perfect restaurant to go on payday and special occasions! #simplythebest
