Nice atmosphere, way overpriced for the quality of the food! Have dropped over 100.00 at many other restaurants for dinner for two that was head and shoulders above what we got from Chima! It was overall just ok, no wow factor whatsoever. When we return to Charlotte for another night on the town, we will not be returning to Chima....

Food was not great. Filet mignon pieces were overdone and under seasoned, pork loin dry, pork ribs tough to chew and over cooked, salmon dry and overcooked, chicken under seasoned. Sounds great and pictures look great, but food underwhelming for the price. Flank steak was good as well as the pineapple. Overall-Disappointed.

Made a reservation expecting our table to be ready when we arrived. Unfortunately that wasn’t the case. Servers were great to start off but towards the end of our meal they seemed preoccupied with everyone else. They did come to say that they were catering to those guests that were headed to the theater to help get them there on time. Regardless we were all paying customers.

Food was great! Service was great! Wait time for my reserved table was a little long about 30 minutes but other than that you should definitely try this place!

We went to Chima for Valentine’s Day and really enjoyed our experience. The food was great and the service was what we were expecting. The price we paid for the Valentine’s Day special didn’t really equal to what we though the experience should be. We plan to visit Chima again during regular dinner hours, at regular menu price and fully expect that to be worth the price. Overall, I would recommend Chima to friends and family.

We went out for Valentine's Day with our two oldest children and two grandchildren which were 2 and under. The food was absolutely delicious, my favorites were the bacon wrapped chicken, ribeye steak and the seafood salad from the salad bar. I liked that the wait staff were working together to make sure everyone had what they needed. My only issue I noticed, there was gratuity included on the bill, we actually were going to leave a larger tip, but my husband was perplexed on why considering we only had 4 people eating.

The food was great. The main waiter was forgetful. The ladies assisting the dining room were extremely helpful and prompt. The ONLY thing we would suggest is attention to table tops that rock. We thought the whole table was rocking when we cut the steak but it was just the table top. Otherwise, excellent experience!

Booked for Valentines Day, which was fixed price $90 per person before tax/tip so the final charge was around $240. At that price, we were hoping for the best. On the plus side, we were seated close to our reservation time (which usually does not happen there), perhaps because of the early time I selected. I came mainly for 2 things: bacon-wrapped filet and salmon. Astoundingly, after 1.5 HOURS, we saw no trace of either. Instead, we were constantly being offered much cheaper meats, such as sausage, chicken, and the flank steak (4x each). When a staff member asked if we were waiting on something particular, I stated I would like bacon-wrapped filet medium rare. I then excused myself for a moment, returning to find 2 chunks of meat on my plate. It was regular filet (not bacon wrapped) and nowhere near medium rare (closer to well done). So when the server returned, I repeated that I had asked for bacon-wrapped filet medium rare. About 10 min later, someone arrived, saying, "Here is your medium bacon-wrapped filet." I asked if he had medium rare instead. He said he would go cook some. I tried to stop him because at that point I would have taken anything, but he was gone. Finally about 15 min after that, it arrived, but by that time I had lost my appetite. I nevertheless ate what was served, though overcooked--not med rare. Finally, were ready for dessert, which we decided to take to-go. To my amazement, it took half an hour to get the desserts from the time we ordered them. The server said our order had "gotten lost." These are clearly pre-made desserts so I don't know how it could have taken more than a minute, even if they had lost the ticket. Just stick it in a box and go. The sever recognized the repeated problems so did offer an extra glass of champagne while we continued to wait for dessert; I declined but date accepted. He also gave us a bonus $25 gift card for the trouble, which was nice because I never complained or asked for any compensation.

Amazing food, but poor management of neighboring tables. Kids running everywhere and caused waiters to drop trays of food. Kids were also very loud screaming around the restaurant while parents sat back and laughed. Wish management would have intervened, this would have made a much better dinner for many people.

All it was a wonderful experience the service wait staff was very attentive the food was really great! The only knock was the upstairs bar girls were somewhat rude and seemed too ignore patrons wanting to purchase a drink. They quickly looked ones up but once they made eye contact with you they looked the other way.

It was an incredible experience for Valentine’s Day. I wanted to take my girlfriend to the best restaurant in Charlotte and wasn’t let down after we left.
The food was top notch, the service was excellent and the ambiance great.
