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!

I was very impressed with the service and you can tell the chef takes pride in every dish that goes out.
The only thing that was missing was a little background music.

Very disappointing. Made a reservation for my wife's birthday and was looking forward to the evening. Table was fine but downhill from there. Appetizers were tasty but the lobster risotto and grilled shrimp entrees we ordered were without any flavor. Had to ask for salt and pepper to try and salvage it. Waiter never came by while we were eating to inquire so had to ask the hostess for them. While there was a rousing rendition of Happy Birthday for another party we had nothing. Prior to getting the check I let our waiter know what a disappointment the dinner was for us. While he apologized and wound up giving us a 15% discount on our bill I would rather have paid the entire amount and enjoyed it more. I let him know that we wouldn't be returning. Didn't seem to be an issue for him.

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.

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.
