LOVED!! Everything about this place, just sad because I always got end pieces when I asked for a cut of steak. But otherwise it was so good and the service was excellent

Disappointed in my experience there. Couldn't hardly understand my waiter and almost impossible to get a refill on drinks. However, the guys that brought out the meat were prompt and extremley efficient. In addition when you ask if they have dessert you shouldn't have to scan a bar code on your phone for it

Overall an Ok experience, the salad bar had a lot of good options to try however most of the meat ad a very similar taste, some of the lamb had a slightly fishy taste and the mashed potatoes were more of a thick soup. We were not overly impressed, worth going once for the experience but not great enough to spend $200 again.

Food was great as always, picanha and other cuts were delicious. The only problem was to get the food to the table. We had to remind staff about appetizers a few times and tell them which ones were missing. It was also challenging to get gauchos to our table. Chima used to be my favorite restaurant, I hope this kind of a service was a one-time mishap.

This was our 2nd visit. We highly recommend visiting and dining at Chima in Charlotte, NC. The food and service is outstanding. We will be back! And we purchased gift cards for our family so they can enjoy dining there as well. It’s worth the trip!

Patricia was our waitress last night (10/11/21) and she was FANTASTIC!!! She was so kind!! She made sure we got the ultimate Brazilian experience and her drink recommendations exceeded my expectations. The food was amazing and the salad bar was beautiful!! So much to choose from!! This was our first time and we will definitely be going back!

Food was VERY very good! We were very full after eating all we could. It was our first time there. The waitress was aggressive which turnt us off , she was nice but aggressive. She recommended us some drinks but we decide we weren’t drinking and kept telling us try and we insisted that we would not be drinking tonight, she backed off. Then when it was time for check ..she explained to me that a tip wasn’t included and told me “Don’t forget to do your part”, which turnt me off even more. I understood but that’s not how it works. She even walked me down after not getting the tip she thought she deserved which was verrrry uncalled for. We’ll be back but she won’t be our server next time. But Again great dining for a date and a lot of food for your buck!

Greeter was not enthusiastic, seater was very nice, server who explained the procedure was too fast to explain and was it was hard to understand. We waited for the appetizers they came at the end when we were almost done eating. Several sauces were empty and were not replenished until we left. I asked for soup spoon and no one brought one and neither they were replenished at the bar I did not eat my soup.
Seafood salad was very good. Lamb chops were delicious. Nicest person was the lady bar tender who took our pictures in front of the ring.
It was my friends birthday and no one asked what were we celebrating so overall experience was fair.

Those that came around with all the wonderful meat, and AMAZING PINEAPPLE, were extremely nice and on point!

**please remember to flip your card over to “no thank you”, when you want them to stop coming over with meat. OTHERWISE, they WILL keep coming 😂😂! Wonderful experience for my son’s 16th birthday!

Adult child visiting Charlotte and wanted a special destination dinner for son and daughter-in-law. Server was exceptional, food service was on par as before. All 7 of our dinner party concurred with my sentiment.
Always leaving us with a happy experience, looking forward for a future return.

My family and I had a wonderful time at Chima. The food was amazing and they staff very attentive to our table. The manager, Doug, was great and kept checking in on us. Rogerio greeted us and he was very kind. Our server, Chong, was amazing. The guashas always brought our meat requests. The whole staff made the experience 10 times better and I’ll definitely be returning!

We love coming to Chima for a great night out. We had a delicious Mule drink upstairs at the bar. Then came downstairs for a fantastic dinner. The salad/side bar is always excellent. Loved the shrimp salad, squash soup and cheese selections. Our server Clark was busy but attentive. We ate every beef selection that came around and they were all super tasty. Our favorites were the fillet wrapped in bacon, garlic steak and the jalapeño steak. Also the lamb chop and shrimp were on point. We finished off with a fancy coffee drink for desert with Bailey’s and Frangelico.

Ok place to go for big parties but not for small, big parties get all the attention when it comes to service and getting food. Not worth the money.

This was our first time dining at Chima and we would certainly come back again. Our waitress Patricia was extremely pleasant and was great at explaining everything. The Brazilian limeade was sooo very good. I don’t believe we were offered a variety of 16 different things, but the things that they did bring out were very good.
