    I went there for a regular date night and I really enjoyed it. The food was really good. Our server was really kind and attentive and helpful since it was our first time there. We received an enjoyable service and had a great time. Will definitely be back.

    Food was good, just wish we could understand our waitress, her accent was so heavy we could hardly understand her. Also, I really don't think she understood our requests. We repeated a request for a specific item 3 times and she never got it right, we finally gave up.

    As a whole was great experience. My only issue was I never received all the meat options or even the raved about pineapple. They would walk by with the ribs for instance and pay me “0” attention. I have been to many Brazilian Steakhouses and never had this happen

    Food was amazing and so was our server Valentina. We were seated near the hostess station where they were loud and inappropriate (among one another, not to guests) next time would just ask to be seated away from there.

    I look forward to my valentines bday at Chima every year. I make sure I book weeks ahead and show up at least 30 mins early. Last night I arrived at 8:30 for a 9pm reservation. We waited and waited and waited. As I kindly approached the hostess (they both were not welcoming and had a bit of sass) understandable that working a hostess position on such a busy night can be frustrating so I again kindly approached the hostess at 9 PM and asked for an update. She said that all her tables were set up for only two people and my tables was for three and I had to wait to be able to sit where I requested for my birthday or just be able to be sat at all I said OK I came back again at 9:30 I was then greeted by the second hostess telling me that she’s just a hostess and all she does is sit people so she doesn’t know anything I quote””I said, why did you take reservations at 9 PM? I’ve been here over an hour waiting, and you’re telling me that the reason that I continue to see people that showed up after me be sad is because my party is a table of three and not 2? I said it’s my birthday. I would really like to just at this point sit at any table that comes available. My preference obviously is not gonna happen in the back room where I always sit in a four top. after 9:45PM rolled around I went up yet again, and was greeted with an attitude a third time I proceeded to find a manager who I did not recall his name, but he was the only individual in that restaurant that was running around, trying to make everybody happy and comfortable. He proceeded to makeshift a table right at the entrance right next to the hostess stand for myself and my party and insisted that we have a seat,he was very kind. I’m very disappointed because not only that I go home on an empty stomach on Valentine’s Day and my birthday, but my favorite Restaurant highly disappointed me with terrible terrible service. I hope to come back again and have a better experience because this was just very disappointing.

    There was a 30 min wait even with our reservation. The high end scotch I ordered was watered down with small ice and when I asked for a large cube drink, they took the watered down drink and poured it in a new cup with the large ice instead of pouring a fresh drink on the large cube. The end result was a very watered down high end scotch that could have been a well drink. The creme brulee was too soft on top and not properly bruleed. The rest of the food was delicious and the atmosphere was sublime.

    Amazing food, service and staff as always! Only disappointment was it was Valentine’s Day, and the reservation was delayed 30min, and we got sat next to a LARGE 50+ person corporate event, so it was very loud. Horrible ambience for a Valentine’s Day dinner for two, and a shame management did this on a night they charged a premium on. Won’t ever go back for 2/14.

    We’ve been here numerous times, including 3 previous Valentines, and this was probably the worst experience we’ve had here. Had a reservation but still had to wait 25 minutes. Chicken was way overcooked. Beef rib wasn’t tender. Lamb Chops were rare instead of the requested medium well. Didn’t allow the option to be charged non alcohol fee like they did all previous times, seeing as we don’t drink for religious religions. Service was extremely terrible this time. It’s always been excellent in the past, but this time for example I finished my water within 15 minutes and the server passed by with the water pitcher numerous times refilling other glasses and she didn’t refill mine until she took the dessert order- 2 hours later. Like I’ve mentioned, we have been here many times, and the service has always been outstanding, but this time was definitely a let down.

    This was my second time at Chima as I live in CT. I loved it so much the first time I wanted to bring my youngest daughter there to experience dinner. Of course Chima did not disappoint-hostess’s to servers,our waiter Vinnie who made it so pleasurable and was so attentive to us and especially my daughter who he kidded with, made sure she was comfortable and gave us that extra Chima charm that makes every other eating experience seem rushed and certainly mediocre in comparison. Management checked in on us while we dined and the servers are always gracious and friendly. Food is exceptional from beginning to end. I would like to also note something and I hope management does read this : On the way over to the restaurant,I had a very scary experience in a Lyft. Our driver was very clearly under the influence of a narcotic. It was a situation where I felt the two of us were in danger and if we didn’t arrive at our destination soon,I would have had him pull right over,get out and run. I was extremely weary of getting back into another Lyft to go back to our hotel. Please - please - I want the staff to know how unbelievably amazing the valet guys were - they had no idea what had happened on the way over,I don’t know if they were trained or it was intuition on their part , They stopped my Lyft, made sure it was my correct driver, asked for his name,made sure it matched the one on my app. Then proceeded to make sure we safely got inside the car. THAT impressed me so much - I called my husband later that night in tears because that extra little step made ALL the difference. They didn’t HAVE to do that at all,but they did and THAT meant the world to me,they made us feel safe and secure. Again,they didn’t have to,but they did. So please commend them - they deserve every accolade I can think to give. It was a taller young man with a light beard, and a shorter built gentleman with tattoos working on Tuesday the 13th - They are HEROES in my eyes. Thank you

    Poor salad bar, a few and regular options. Rodizio also just a few options, also overgrilled. Never seen this place like that. It didn't worth it. I'm gonna think twice on coming back again.
