Always a wonderful time has been had at Chima’s! And the food is great! 👍👍👍
Was there for birthday Saturday 11/27 and it was horrible.
Restaurant was horribly overbooked. We waited an hour with a reservation!
Restaurant was packed and we were herded in like cattle.
It was noisy and not worth the money due to horrible ambiance.
Service was great. Our waitress Vivien was great. Buffet was very good. Meet was mainly very much well over done. I like medium rare. Because of that all meet taste the same and to dry.
As always, very good. The food, ambiance, service were all great. The only item i noticed, different from prior visits, was having to call over servers for food. Not a big issue, the place was crowded and everything was good, but it did seem like we had to wait longer than usual for the steaks to come by. No worry, i will still visit for dinner in the future.
Great food and service
Service was okay but that was all. All the apps came out cold which there were some I was looking forward to enjoying again as we lasted visit this place 5 years ago and always brought it up when we would reminisce. That won't be happening again. The meats were either under cooked or over done. I would ask for my preferred cut and they would say this is what I have. Dessert's were decent and was probably what I enjoyed the most and I'm not a dessert eater, I was looking forward to the meats. It also felt we didn't try all the meats. At least the host and waiter mentioned Happy Bday to my wife.
We've eaten here many times and it's always great in every way. This trip was Thanksgiving. Even though we had reservations, we had to wait. They did not know how long we would wait for and said they "overbooked" many people were irate. We had friends in from out of town, we made the best of it. Their were so many people there, kids running around screaming. We waited maybe a half an hour-when we got to our table, the even the servers were running around !
We're still glad we came, but it was not the usual Chima, It was more of a cafeteria ! loud and crazy ! Don't think overbooking served you well. won't come back on a holiday !
Great Venue. Went for Holiday… very busy but extremely organized and the menu was delicious!
I haven’t eaten at Chima’s in a few years. The salad bar was excellent as usual and I usually don’t like to fill up on it but it’s just so darn good. Also love the bread balls, yucca?, and fried bananas they put on the table as well as the seafood dip. I probably could have been satisfied with those and the salad bar, but it’s a Brazilian steak house so when in Brazil…😂
I don’t think the waiters were responsive to our orange disk. We actually asked to have salmon and filet brought by and it took a while and they’d pass us by when the orange was up. The shrimp and chicken were a bit dry.
The espresso martinis were tasty and strong but at $15 a pop they should be. I would have liked the glass to be
rimmed in chocolate. The lamb was very good but I’ll have to remember to get mint jelly from salad bar as well as chimichurri.
I’m a frugal person so I wouldn’t go except for special occasions because $65 pp is $$$ excluding drinks/valet. The valet is $8 plus we tipped. Just a pretty expensive night although tasty and enjoyable overall.
Great time at Chima without family on Thanksgiving. The food was excellent and the wait staff very attentive. We will definitely be coming back.
I have eaten in restaurants thousands of times in my life, other than our waiter the service was very good. The waiter was the worst ever, all he has to do was to fill the water glass and remove the dirty plates. Another food server saw what was going on and she took over and she was excellent. There is plenty to eat, the salad bar was excellent but the meat was tough and of low quality. I couldn't recommend this restaurant, I like TexasdeBrazil must better.
One of the best churrascarias we have been to in the US. Would be considered excellent in Brazil, where we live part-time.
Great thanksgiving dinner. A bit of a wait but worth it. I enjoyed everything and the drinks were mixed strong! 😃 There was a bar outside to order while waiting and musical entertainment .
I have found Chimas to be a high class Brazilian steakhouse and the cost always adequate; I now live in Lauderdale by the Sea but have used them over the last 15 years.
I am a very satisfied customer
The food is always at 10 the service is always great but they were very busy for Thanksgiving and our waitresses were over-the-top excellent
The absolute best dining experience. I had your sliced turkey breast and, for me, was the best turkey I have ever eaten.
Wonderful restaurant, great food and service. Fair price for all the food you received. Only downside is that they had a posted dress requirement which they did NOT follow. Several parties were dressed in shorts, bathing attire t-shirts and overall inappropriate dress for a restaurant of this caliber. I wish this would have been different.
The food was incredible and so worth the price! The service was great, the ambiance was lovely and we will always come back here. We have been here several times now and it never disappoints! Highly recommend Chima!
Lenny and Richard were awesome
Keep up the great service. Thank you
Always in my Top 5 restaurants in South Florida!
Thanks for your review. We appreciate it.
Been coming for years, never disappointed; sustained quality, variety and service,
I love this place for special occasions! The stafff, food, and ambiance is amazing.
Thanks for your review. We appreciate it.
It was nice
Thanks for your review. We appreciate it.
Very crowded and loud restaurant as many large groups celebrating birthdays. The service in the restaurant was superb as was the food. The cipravodka was amazing as was the Brazilian Sundae. Despite the noise we had a good time.
Cant go wrong with the variety of meat you can indulge in. Salad bar quite good, overall better than a traditional steak house.
Outlet server was amazing. However, we didn’t receive enough attention from the rest of the stuff. Every time we were ready for another portion of the meat, we had to wait at least 10 minutes. Another disappointment was the absence of variety of the Thule of meat. We spent 1.5 hours i the restaurant and all we tried beat and chicken, unfortunately, we didn’t get to try lamp or seafood. We have to admit that some of the meat was good, but the most part it was dry. The overall experience was ok, but we will not come back.
This is a beautiful venue with traditional gaucho type service. Wine list is good, cocktails are great. The cheese bread is to die for. Meat is prepared perfectly and well seasoned. I’d say this place is a little elevation over chain churrascarias.
Love the Beef Rib guy!
Outstanding food and service
I don't know if it is because I have eaten here too many times but I am burned out with the whole concept. My bill with 2 rodizio's was a little over $26000, that includes , 4 drinks and 2 coffees, and tip which is automatically added to the check. For that kind of money I would rather eat a the palm, prime 112, Joe's stone crabs or even the capital grille.
Great restaurant, service and ambiance, everything is always top notch
Lovely place nestled away w beautiful entrance way of lights, fountains, and tall trees. Was a bit loud inside w the open floor plan but still a nice experience with plenty to eat. It is a bit pricey but cuts of meats are top of the line and very well seasoned. Service attendants were all very nice. I went on Tuesday evening 8pm and they were very busy. Did take some time to get my alcoholic beverages but other than that amazing experience.
Chima always provides excellent service and cuisine every time we go. The salad bar alone provides a beautiful array of meats and veggies. Everything is high quality. Sunday lunch may become a regular tradition for us.
Amazing experience! Great staff, great food, and valet only $8. Would recommend!
Very flexible to arrange for my wife's surprise birthday dinner. Allowed us to bring our own cake without any plate charge. Held the cake in the kitchen until served. Timely seating for everyone.
Food was amazing. Service was awesome. Will definitely be going back
