Business dinner. The service was excellent. Food quality was also excellent with top quality cuts of beef. The buffet table had a nice variety of fresh sides. My colleagues enjoyed their cheesecake but was not fond of the Brazilian themed 3 poudings. All in all, great ambience and a worthwhile restaurant to visit.

Went on a Sunday. All the pork items were very dry and none of the meat was medium rare. All the meats just seemed to be recycled and not cooked fresh. Probably very good on a busy night, but horrible on Sunday.

The food was delicious and the waiters were amazing to deal with. Alot of the meat was being served medium rare, and I guess I mentioned it once or twice.. Then a few of the carvers had the meat cooked longer and specifically brought it back to me.. It definitely made me feel like they cared.. Great experience and I will be going back soon. They made my birthday memorable!

Salad bar is fantastic and unrivaled. Service is very efficient and cordial. Unbelievable amount of meats to choose from. Only one sirloin was slightly overcooked. The rest was delicious.

We came to Chima for my husband’s birthday. Our reservation was for 8 PM and we arrived at 7:30 and they seated us right away. After getting drinks, the food was immediately brought around. Through the course of the night, 4 different employees including the manager stopped by our table to make sure everything was OK and asked if we needed anything. The Brazilian rum cocktail is amazing and comes in a lot of flavors. The meat is to die for- always perfectly cooked and if you especially like one cut, you can have them bring it back around. At the end of dinner, they even brought out a little cheesecake that said Happy Birthday. My husband was blown away. Thank you Chima staff!!

My wife and were visiting from Connecticut and took our daughter to Chimas for her 23rd Birthday. We loved the ambiance and the food. ( an there was plenty of it! 😋) Our server was very polite and mostly attentive to our service needs. We would definitely visit again when in Charlotte NC!

The overall experience was great. My best advise to everyone; sit upstairs where it is less noisy. Seemed as if more families with kids where seated downstairs. Lighting upstairs was great for a romantic feel.

We had a great dining experience. It is a beautiful place and the service is exceptional. We had the salad/food bar which comes with salmon and chicken served at the table. The food is exceptional with several interesting, unique dishes. We had two minor issues.
1) Being seniors the valet parking is important. The place opened at 5 PM and our reservation was for 5 PM. Unfortunately, the valet does not set up until 5 PM. We had to circle the block a few times until they were ready.
2) The salmon was a little too dry for our taste. That was not a problem as the chicken and everything else was exceptional. However, the waiter passed my comment on to the manager and she came to apologize and offer to have some prepared to our liking. Just the right way to handle this!

Valet parking is provided for free, however allow extra time to get that accomplished both before and after the meal. The food was yummy with several gluten free options on the salad bar and even delicious gluten free parmesan dinner rolls.The selection on the salad bar was extensive. The meat selections were varied and most were well done. It is a steak house so we were not surprised when the chicken was dry and the salmon was bland. Everything else was fantastic, including the tiramisu for dessert.My son thoroughly enjoyed his 16th birthday celebration.

We had an excellent experience from the time we were seated until the time we left. Our servers were exceptional and the food came frequently. The food was excellent as well. To end the evening, my daughter left her purse on her chair and they chased us down to return it to us. Doesn’t get much better than that.

My boyfriend and I brought in my parents for their first Chima experience and the entire night was simply perfect. From the food to the service my parents loved absolutely everything. Their only issue was the noise level. My father is hard of hearing so it was sometimes difficult for him to here, but other than that they thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
