We happened upon their Latin Night (Thursdays) and was astonished by the amazing food! The Skirt Steak was a dream! The service is better than 5Stars in Manhattan!
My friend and I were celebrating our birthdays by going out someplace really nice. Neither of us had been to the Chachama Grill before and were extremely happy with our experience. Luckily we had made a reservation because although it was a Thursday the restaurant was crowded. The staff was gracious and helpful. We opted for the price fix dinner. The food was outstanding. We had the fried oysters which were tender, sweet morsels. For dinner we both had seared scallops with spaghetti squash and artichoke hearts...delicious. For dessert she had the warm chocolate cake which she loved and I had the vanilla creme brulle. I would definitely return to the Chachama again.
Ive been to Chachama Grill numerous times and it is always outstanding. This time however, the service was lacking. There was supposedly a "back-up" in the kitchen and we waited a long time for our entrees...a very long time. Also, the waiter failed to tell us that risotto was replacing sweet potato with my wife's entree so when the food finally came out we had to send it back to correct the problem since my wife does not like risotto and it was not mentioned on the menu as part of the dish. One of our desserts was also not up to snuff (frozen in the center) of a tiramisu. Our entrees and appetizers were all excellent as usual, but the poor service and mistakes made this particular visit a bit disappointing. This is not the norm for this restaurant.
food was everything we expected and more!
The service was very good, everyone was friendly and the food was delicious. Would be great if they accepted American Express.
We loved this restaurant. The food was excellent, and the service was very attentive. It was surprising to find such special cuisine in a strip mall, but we quickly adapted and really enjoyed our meal.
Great experience at Chachamas. Visited for the first time and was impressed with the cuisine, excellent service and ambiance conducive to talking and simply relaxing in a quiet environment. Food portions were perfect and so innovative and tasty. Would highly recommend to any one for a special occasion in their lives.
Always a great experience! Food is amazing! The hospitality is welcoming and the rice pudding is to die for!
Excellent meal as always, one of my favorite restaurants! Food is amazing and the staff is so friendly and accommodating. A must!
We've spent many special family occasions at Chachama, including our son's birthday this visit. As always, we were greeted warmly at the door, with our coats quickly taken and hung up. At our table, our waitress, Kim, welcomed us and assisted with our drink selections. Our appetizers and entrees were all amazingly delicious, and every member of the staff was friendly, courteous, and professional. At the end of our meal, Kim surprised my son with a birthday dessert and song! Chachama is number one on our list of favorite places, and we plan to return again soon!
Exceptional food 5 star quality . Drinks made to perfection ,staff was a pleasure Presentation was spot on.
Always the best!!! We go there often and never tired of it, they change the menu occasionally and have great special.
Fabulous! We are never disappointed! The food is creative and delicious. The staff is top notch.
Thai calamari was excellent, duck entree was delicious and tiramisu was a perfect ending to my meal. Our new favorite restaurant!
Fabulous!! Not only was the meal delicious, and the service was perfect, but it’s also a beautiful restaurant. We also enjoyed the wonderful rolls! The entire evening was GREAT!!!
A wonderful atmosphere, a diamond in the rough in East Patchogue. A family feel, with a classy environment, outstanding service, and the food reflects that of an upscale NYC venue tucked away in your local shopping center.
Kudos to the chef for his choice of flavors, presentation, and fresh ingredients.
Definitely a must to try.
Sundays prix fix is the way to go, worth every penny.
Always the best
Place is in s strip mall, but it gets tons of good word of mouth. The staff is incredibly nice, and I was told the food was amazing, but maybe I ordered the wrong thing. I got the scallops. They were cooked beautifully. They would have had that beautiful crispy exterior, had they not been drowned in oil, and sitting in a pool of oil. They weren't seasoned at all, and the veggies they were served with might have been good had they not soaked up all that flavorless oil. My dad loved his meal. My mom halfway through hers said it was oily so maybe that's just a thing they do there. Was disappointed. It's also grossly overpriced for what it is.
Love this place. Great food and service and drinks
Chachama Grill is consistently one of the finest restaurants on Long Island. We dine out every week at least 2-3 time at fine restaurants and every visit to Chachama is notable. The food is well prepared and the menu is always updated with lots to choose from. I had the duck and my wife had the chicken and both were perfectly seasoned and prepared. We love this restaurant.
Had another great meal...service was excellent as was the food. Helene is a real gem and treats every guest like family!
My first visit to Chachama. I will definitely be back. Staff is very welcoming and warm. The food is excellent. We had the filet mignon and a short rib special. Both were outstanding. Try the warm rice pudding for dessert, it's delicious. Already planning our next visit.
Amazing food, excellent service. Will be returning very soon.
This is our second time coming to Chachama. Once again, we had a wonderful dinner. The staff was attentive and friendly, also the dinners were delicious and fresh. Looking forward to our next dinner :)
Food was wonderful. While service was good the waiter kept mixing up the orders between my husband and I. Great place to celebrate a special occasion.
The food is very good. We went for restaurant week so I noticed the portions were less.
I cannot say enough good things about my recent dining experience at Chachama Grill. I first visited in 2003 when the restaurant opened and enjoyed it but didn't return for a reason I can't recall. Fast forward 15 years and I returned for restaurant week. The food was amazing and the service was top notch. We especially enjoyed the desert - a napoleon for me and chocolate cake for my boyfriend and mother. We also had a nice glass of Pinot Noir that was extremely reasonably priced . We cannot wait to return!
This restaurant has a nice ambience and delicious food. Every dish has a beautiful presentation and the owner and wait staff are very friendly. In addition, the service is excellent too. I definitely will return to experience another delicious dish.
My husband and I had dinner here for the first time. The service was excellent and the food as well. My husband had the short ribs and I had a shrimp dish with Peruvian mash potatoes which were to die for. We will definitely go back again.
Food was excellent. Service was fair. Atmosphere was stale. Main waiter was nice but very pushy. Everything was rushed from the time you sat down, to ordering, to dessert. We went for restaurant week, maybe thats why. Idk. Pre-fix appetizer, dinner, and dessert choices were very limited. Even when i upgraded to the 38 pre fix dinner, still wasnt the greatest choices. However, from what i did select the food came out delicious. Chef did an amazing job.
Have been there a few time. Always great food and service.
A true gem and possibly the best restaurant in Suffolk County. Don’t let the shopping center location fool you. Once you step through the doorway to Chachama Grill, you’ll be in a different world. Enjoy the surprises to come from the great martinis and expertly prepared food. Start to finish, you’ll have an excellent dining experience.
This place never disappoints! Food is great, fresh, and good portion sizes.
Good for a date night or out with friends who love great food.
The food as always is amazing and the staff is always very attentive.
We went to Chachama for Long Island Restaurant Week The menu was excellent. The food was outstanding, creative and well prepared. Service was very good. Will be back for their regular menu.
Chachama has been a favorite of ours for at least ten years, and it never fails to be wonderful!
From the moment we enter and are greeted by Maria until it is time to leave everyone is out to please. Pablo was an excellent waiter and my favorite dish, the branzino was superb. My husband did not want the meat sauce over pasta so Elmer created a very delicious garlic and oil pasta dish. There is nothing bad about Chachama and so much that is great. Thank you Chachama!!
Always excellent. Dependable great food and good service!
We were expecting exceptional food based on other reviews but would rate it as only good at best. The service is also lacking for a fine dining restaurant with mostly a young and inexperienced staff. Chachama Grill needs to up their game if they want to be considered one of the best dining spots on Long Island.
Once inside the location you forget you are part of a strip mall. Good food / service
We went for restaurant week and basically got what we paid for. We did enjoy our last visit better.
