Amazing!! The managers, Neto and Doug, were very welcoming and our server, Sammy, made sure to check on us often. The gauchos were attentive and friendly. The food was wonderful, we really enjoyed our dining experience, 11/10 recommend.

The food was absolutely delicious and I definitely got my money’s worth. The steak melted in my mouth like butter. The salads were very tasty. The rice & beans reminded me of how my great grandmother would make them. So delicious, can’t wait to come back again.

Not sure if it where we were sitting or if this is just the way it is here, but we had issues with servers walking pass our table not asking if we wanted anything even with our paper coasters turned over to signify we wanted more food. I even asked our waitress to send the servers with certain meats over and that took forever. I also did not care to try at least 90% of the options in the salad bar. The drinks tasted like pure sugar. There were 4 of us in my family m and 2 of us couldn’t even finish our drinks because of how sweet they were. It also seemed to take forever for our waitress to clear off plates at our table or just come around at all. We had to keep flagging her down whenever we would see her at another table, which is something we shouldn’t have to do constantly. Eventually we just gave up and we were ready to go. Our bill was way over $300.00, which I don’t mind if the food and service is good (I did like the filet mignon, mash potatoes, asparagus, and grilled pineapple but for that amount, I expect to like a lot more than that). I do not plan on going back.

for slightly less $, I have had a much better salad bar, atmosphere, and steak flavors, for instance, Rio's in Columbia, SC. The truth is, these places are good for the experience of getting the "unlimited" steaks, but they wait so long to go to your table (all of them, not just Chima), than you get full on salad bar stuff and then it's a waste of $. much rather pay $60 for a tomahawk steak served at once at Ruth's or another steakhouse.

I was very disappointed that I had to pay full price on Thanksgiving even though I am a vegetarian. I always come only for the salad bar but for some reason Thanksgiving they charged full price.

Went on Thanksgiving, very busy, had to keep asking for meat to be served. They would bring out but would skip table and run out before they got to us. Had to ask over and over for meat to be served, finely gave up. For the price, not worth it if they never come around with the meat.

It seemed like a lot of the normal salad dishes were missing, only ceasar salad was available. Everything had a great taste especially the cranberry stuffing! My seafoood arrived later than I expected but overall our waitress was very accomodating. I am thankful that you were open on Thanksgiving day so that us families without other family members nearby have an alternative place to visit!:)

The waitress was not attentive at all. We have been to Chima numerous times and our waitress did not pay much attention to us as we are use to. No dark turkey meat, was available at the salad bar. Stuffing was dried out before it was changed out. Dishes were not changed out often enough. The only positive things were all of the meat choices were very soft and the salad bar was outstanding as usual

The service was HORRIBLE! Our waitress never picked up our dirty plates, never refilled our drinks, and we waited over 20 minutes for the check after watching her go to every other table. When we were first sat, the hostess even came over & told her she needed to wait on us because we had reservations & were sat first, but she went to a different table that was a walk-in & was sat after us. Also, all the food on the buffet was ice cold. NOT worth the money!!!! Will NEVER go back! Brazz is SO much better!

Dinner was awesome. The vibe was great! There were small children there that I was not expecting. Crying baby and a stroller. But, my table was coo. The food was amongst the best I ever had! It was our 14yr anniversary. They brought out a cake that said happy anniversary 😍

We’ve dined here many times before and always had excellent food, service and overall experience; unfortunately not last night. Usually you are overwhelmed with the frequency and the choices of meats that come to you at your table; last night there were unusually long periods before a single server would stop and inquire if you would care for the meat/seafood option they offered? Many/majority of the beef products contained so much fat they we literally had a side plate 3/4 full by the end our dining. Our waitress sat us and forgot us, only to return to refill our glasses once as we asked for our check. The noise level made it nearly impossible to talk to one another across the table further detracting from the overall special experience.
Not sure if we will return again to see if this has become the new norm? We live nearly an hour away and usually include this restaurant when we have a special night and event in Charlotte.

I was not impressed with the food. The chicken was dry at times, and the steaks were all very similar. Also the salad bar was sub par, I can see they are trying to be authentic but I believe better sides dishes and better finesse on the meat could elevate this place.

Jasmine was amazing. We have never been here before, she explained how it worked and kept checking back with us. The drinks were great, the food was more than enough. 16 different choices of meat! Worth every penny spent. They even surprised my husband for his birthday with a small cheesecake. (which was delicious)
