Food was good. Noisy. We didnt get all the meats offered. We had to wait for the meat to come. Decent but not work the money i paid.

Food and service was good. It took longer to get the meats to come around. Also the wait for desserts took longer than what we expected.

Took my Fiancé for his birthday and it was the first time there for both of us. The look of the restaurant and the set up was beautiful. We had an awesome server. All the food was amazing I’m a big fan of the salmon with cilantro sauce. Will definitely come back again.

This was my first experience at Chima. The table was beautifully set and everything looked very clean. The service was great, our server Brittany was very attentive. She kept up with our drinks and made sure we had everything we needed. The experience and food was amazing. I will be recommending this restaurant to others!!

Dinner was lovely. Service was very good.

My son is a picky eater, but decided to every meat, even the lamb! It was a nice way to celebrate his 18h birthday.

First time trying Chima. Nice environment & setting. Salad bar and drink selection really not my pick. Waitress was wonderful & also guys serving the meats. $200 Bill was a bit expensive for just sampling meats & 4 drinks.

The meat options were so good. I loved the seasoning etc but the salad bar options.... NO. If I am paying 70+ dollars, I would expect more options for the salad bar. A lot of the items were tasteless or just nasty. I would do would just the meat and pineapple all over again. Server Catherine was phenomenal. Thank you so much

The meat was over cooked. We sat by the kitchen and the servers continued to skip our table. We had to continue to stop them to ask for food.

Food was excellent. Salad bar for me was a big attraction. The gauchos were very polite and attentive. I felt that there was a waitress shortage but she was personable and helpful. However, not having a printed menu is not workable. When asked you should be able to produce one. Another major issue was the "bar" appetizers. WHAT?! I can't have them at the table??? Why? And parking is unimaginable. Come on, shell out for valet service. That's the reason we won't be back for another 10 years.

I have been here before and had a wonderful experience. Was in town for Christmas and decided to bring my family here hoping for the same great experience that we had the first time. Unfortunately we didn’t. What food we did have was great but we only had a couple of types of meat when they had said they were making 16 different types this night and so we didn’t get the full experience of their food. I worked in restaurants for 15 years and have a lot of patience but the service was not good at all, no one stopped by after our order was placed initially for almost 35 minutes and then we had to wait almost 25 to get out 2nd round of drinks we ordered, and we had a pile of dirty plates and glassware on our table until the end. They did not appear to be short staffed at all. Overall not a good experience this trip.

Christmas Dinner, I was somewhat disappointed. After 2 hours we finally got to try 50% of the proteins they offer. The second wind was 20 minutes after the first round. Was offered pineapple 8 times, filet once at the end. I love China but they underdelivered this go.

Went to chima’s on Christmas thinking it would be a great first time experience. I was wrong. First of all our server “Chelsea” talked wayyyy too much and never had her mask on. I promise every 5 minutes she was at our table. One time I even made a comment about hot sauce & the server was eavesdropping & thought I asked where she got it from? So she walked over and interrupted our conversation to tell me “oh the hot sauce is at the bar”. I never asked. We could not enjoy each other because of her.

Before booking I looked online at the menu as I always do. I saw lobster tails which is one of the reasons I was excited to come. I was told by Chelsea they no longer have them? Pineapple came around every 10 min never got offered fillet mignon EVER. Shrimp was over cooked. Salmon was gross.

They need to revamp their menu

I have tried to contact the GM everyday after our experience and still no call back and can never reach him. Good luck
