This was by far, the absolute worst Father’s Day my husband has ever had. The service was terrible and the flavor was bland. We barely got any meat and had to ask several times if the boards would make it over to our section and most times, by the time they did, there was barely any meat left. After awhile, we just gave up and asked for the bill. We paid over $350 for our family of four and had to end up stopping and picking up fast food on our way home. We’ll never be back.

The food service was slow and many times the gauchos just skipped our table or ran out of food before making it to us. Not pleased with this experience.

The restaurant was beautiful. We had a 7:45 reservation but we were not seated until 8:15. When we pulled up to be valet parking we were told they were full and they would not park us but they parked the car that was behind us and continued parking other cars. The meats were very slow coming around and our waitress had an attitude when we asked for more rolls or something other then water to drink. They did not have a large selection of sides at all so that part sucked and the beef ribs had no taste at all. Overall right now I feel it’s overpriced for what we experienced.

Our server Jonathan was great. Lots of side options ( veggie, protein, starch) as well as meat ( beef, pork, lamb, poultry, seafood) options cooked however you like. All the food was prepared wonderfully. The wine recommended by our server was so delicious. The cheesecake was great too. We had a wonderful time. Valet was 10 dollars and traffic was crazy but we had a 15 min grace period. The wait to be seated wasn’t long at all. Everyone was really nice overall

Took my son here for his 21st birthday. Stephanie was our waitress and she was amazing. The beef ribs, flank steak and roasted lamb were our favorites. The bacon wrapped filet were over cooked and tough, my only issue with the meats. I do think they can do better on their salad bar though. They had potato salad with chicken in it, a meat board with prosciutto, salami and carpaccio? We are getting like16 different meats with table service. I would add a few more different kinds of green salad, the potato salad without the chicken, and maybe a couple hot vegetables and potatoes. I did see rice and beans were up there. And maybe in the summertime do away with the soup. We will definitely come back, just making some suggestions!

My only complaint would be that I had called at 5pm to ask if I can add two additional guests to my reservation. The employee who answered the phone asked a manager if they were able to accomodate my request. However, the employee came back to the phone and advised I wasn't able to update my reservation as they were fully booked. I asked if I can still stop by on my reservation time to see if there was a table available to accomodate my party before we decide to go elsewhere for dinner. I was told no. I understand sometimes employees aren't fully trained and that's ok. However, I do believe I should have been given the option and opportunity to check in as I did instead of just being shut down. I love chima and I was bringing 3 guests who has never been or experienced a steakhouse as such. I was pleased that the front desk gentleman (older gentleman) was able to accomodate us when I showed up for my reservation. Needless to say it was an amazing dinner and unforgettable experience for myself and my guests.

If you are a meat lover, this is the best bargain you can get. If you do the complete rodizio, you will be offered all the meat cuts plus shrimps, salmon, sausage, chicken, grilled pineapple and the salad buffet. They still have one of the best salad buffet. Service was okay but we had better experience with our previous visits. Our server was just taking care of more tables that she can handle to give more attentive service.

This is a kind of restaurant that you may want to visit once or twice a year to satisfy your meat craving.

It was our wedding anniversay so they gave us free cheese cake with a Happy Anniversary greeting. Nice personal touch.

Fair Brazilian steakhouse, I did expect a little bit more for the price they charge. The meats they serve was really good, but the gaucho service needs improvement. I don’t know if we were positioned in a bad spot, but for example the picanha, pineapple and shrimp never made it to our table within an hour or so. I had to ask them to send the picanha and pineapple to our table. I think that’s a no go for a dinner in that price range!
