We had a party of 8 I took my wife all for her anniversary dinner and we got bombarded by the waiters. dripping dare bloody meat all over our clothes and making it a very uncomfortable atmosphere.. on a couple occasion's one of the servers had a knife inches away for 1 of my guest is face..
For the life of me I can't understand why would he put a party of 8 against the wall so the service had a difficult time getting behind us serving us..

They spill food over my shoes and jeans the manager came out and offered to pay my cleaning bill which I thought was insulting.

To make the night worst outside the restaurant there was a flood of homeless people asking donations and really getting in our personal space ,
We felt like we was going to get it attack and our lifes were in danger

Our total bill for restaurant was $600 I wish they would a set us up at a better table and systematically have the waiters come one at a time instead of 4 at a time causing confusion.
Very dissatisfied

Fogo de Chao seems to excel in the Brazilian steakhouse category. Chima trails far behind in fourth or fifth place. Food was OK but not over-the-top; service was incredibly spotty; overly attentive at first and nohere to be found during the second part of the meal. For the cost [$200 for 2], I'm not anxious to return soon, if ever.

We completely enjoyed our experience at Chima tonight, it was two of our friends’ first time and it was on point as usual. All of the cuts of meat were delicious and the wine was a perfect pair.

Quality has been in a slow decline for a while now and continues to decline. Inconsistent seasoning and over cooking seemed to be a theme this night.

We came to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday at his favorite restaurant. We had an amazing experience. The wait staff led by Kimberly went above and beyond the normal outstanding Chima experience. We felt like a VIP table. I've dined many places in my life and have grown up in the restaurant business, but this was by far the best service I've ever witnessed or received at a restaurant! Chimas is like the Disney of the restaurant world! Thank you for everything! We'll definitely be back on many occasions.

We wanted to celebrate a special milestone for one of our children. We chose Chima Steakhouse because we had been to another restaurant of this type in a different state. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal here. The service was excellent and everything tasted great!

I woke up and I was craving a lot of meats so I decided to go to Chima Brazilian steakhouse with a friend of mine he has never been there before. I made a reservation for 6:15 and we got there around 6:05. The manager John greeted me and my friend and proceed to sit us down. From the moment we sat down till the moment we left it was absolutely perfect service. I knew what the experience was all about but my friend kept telling me they really are detailed and friendly here I told him it’s all about the Chima experience. Keep in mind we are in this diet called Keto so we can’t eat certain stuff/dressings/possible spices or marinates on food. The head gaucho and the gauchos we asked them questions as we went and they accommodated our needs to make sure we got the meats the wanted the perfect way and which ones we could and not have. I have dined out in other places uptown since I do live In uptown myself but Chima has never ever dissapointed with their detail to service and their meats are off the chain! My server Robert was amazing as well he explained the meat service to my friend, explained the drink options and the desserts in full detail.

Will definitely be coming back to Chima of charlotte

Have been numerous times here and sadly the sirloin house special was not cooked well. It was really chewy and the fat was not cooked and did not have it’s normal seasoning. Not sure if they have a new recipe or cooking method, but very disappointed. Server was also a bit slow, not sure if he had too many tables, but it took a long time to get refills on our drinks and our dirty plates were not taken off the table until we paid the check.
