This was an “off” night for them. Normally the food is well seasoned and we get a nice variety. This weekend it didn’t meet our expectations as they are normally on point. The variety was poor and the servers seemed to miss our table

Took family out for a nice dinner after the TSO concert. Had reservation and was seated right away, on a Saturday evening! Waiter Chris was nice and attentive, it did take a bit to get the hot sides to the table and we had several of the main dishes pass us by a few times. Never saw the Salmon! The Cinnamon Pineapple was the absolute best thing! Amazing! It is a bit expensive, the meal pricing does not include any beverage at all, except tap water. Bottled water (expensive) and tea etc all have added charges. So beware. It had been awhile since the last time we were here and it has changed a little, but basically a carnivore’s delight! Definitely recommend making a reservation here!

Chima Steakhouse is a perfect example of what fine dining represents. The servers, hosts, and all the other employees represented class and professionalism. The food was beyond wonderful and plentiful. Bite after bite, I could not get enough until I was truly full. Overall, I would recommend this restaurant to a friend who loves delicious meals with excellent service.

We had a large group on a Sunday night, which included 4 kids between the age of 2-11 and it was a great time. We were a bit worried that it wouldn’t be kid friendly but the staff was absolutely amazing. The food was superb and atmosphere was great. Will definitely be going back.

We went to China’s to celebrate the upcoming arrival of my friend’s granbaby. We wanted to do something special and this was perfect. The food, service and atmosphere were very good. My only complaint was that it was loud in there. I guess you can’t tell the many guests not to talk so loud.

We have come here for Thanksgiving the last three years and it is absolutely the best way to do it. Food is always great and the best part... no cleaning up for Thanksgiving. Highly recommend for the holiday or any special occasion.

I took my daughter and her boyfriend to dinner on Thanksgiving. It was one of the best experiences I have had at a restaurant in a very long time. We were greeted by our server, he introduced himself and his assistant, Carl was our main server and Lucio was his assist. He explained how the service worked and was very attentive. The Groucho’s never let us wait more than a few seconds for another serving. The meats were amazing. The salad bar, the cheese selection, the traditional turkey, I could go on endlessly with accolades for the choice and quality of the food. I was most impressed with the manager visiting tables and asking how everyone was enjoying their meal as he himself pitched in and helped clear tables and filled beverages. Superior!

The Thanksgiving spread was good and getting there before the dinner rush was a big help. Food and drinks were good. Drinks were very pricey and double what you pay in a bar. I would go back.

Chima Brazilian steakhouse has easily turned into my favorite restaurant. The food was beyond delicious with all the varieties you could imagine and the host for the night went out of his way to make sure we were having a wonderful experience. I would recommend this place for any special occasion!

Always love coming here. Chong or Chang I think served us. As always service is wonderful and made sure we got what we needed and kept changing out our plates when we needed. Water was always full. And since I’m pregnant, they made sure to get me sirloin that was well done.

The food was amazing! The only reason I gave 4 stars is that we went for my boyfriends birthday and I kind of thought they would do something nice for him. I told them it was his birthday but they didn’t do anything to help us celebrate.

It was our first time there and I can say that please don't waste your money going to that place, sanitation rating is 92. Food is average and being our first time the Waiter want to make sure you spend more money than the spected.

I am Brazilian and Gaucho.

Very poor service. Polenta and Bananas were rubber. Meats would come every 5 - 10 minutes with repeat cuts. When asked for specific cuts it would take over 20 minutes or not brought over at all.

Skip this place. If you are looking for a real churrascaria then head to Matthews for Rios or go to Estampa Gaucha.

Last time I was there it was the same poor bad experience but I wanted to give them another chance. Terrible mistake!! Service was the worst... even the gauchos had an attitude. Save your money and go to a really nice steakhouse like Frisco (same price!) or wait to go to NYC or Vegas and have a Fogo de Chao experience!!

Not as good as the DC location, but was pretty good. Service by Dani was wonderful. Tabbouleh at the salad bar could use some major help. Chorizos were charred hard beyond edible belief, couldn't bite into it. Most meats were fine and the gauchos were genuine in their efforts to get the right meats to you.

We went during the Fall Special that they had for $35. Took nearly an hour and a talk with management to get meat brought to our table. Seems like they we catering mostly to diners that that purchased the full dinner. I will say that after speaking to management we didn’t have anymore issues with meat rotation and they even sent over a few items that weren’t originally included in our special.

We were moved to a different table due to our first table being under the air conditioning vent, but our waiter didn’t move with us and the waiter in the new section didn’t take over our service so we had no one waiting on us for our meal. Finally we had to hunt someone down to bring us a bill.
