My husband and I went to celebrate both of our birthdays and our anniversary. We were very impressed and truly enjoyed our meal. The ambience is beautiful and romantic. The food is mouthwateringly delicious. The meats are superb. The quality of our service staff was great. They were very attentive. We were greeted by the owner of the restaurant and he was very gracious and hospitable. This is a special restaurant and perfect for a special night. One of the best dining establishments we have experienced. We will celebrate many more occasions at Chima in the future.

Made a last minute booking for dinner with family based on the reviews we had read while we were staying in Fort Lauderdale.

The service was excellent all night from all of the staff.

The choice of salad and vegetables was very good and had everything that you could wish for.

The meat was superb and as plentiful aps you want.

Wine list was good and not overly expensive.

We had a great night and would definitely visit again in the future.

Overall it was good. A lit too expensive. In my opinion, Kids that barely eat should not be charge $30. The waiting time for the meat was kind of long and the dessert was more than 20 minutes.

I can go over and over, but words cannot describe how amazing was my experience with Chima.
We’ve stopped at their outside patio to have some drinks and enjoy a delightful live music.
Ordered the second drink and made our way to our reserved table.
Our server Adin was phenomenon, always on top of our needs with a big smile and positive attitude.
Managers stopped by many time to ensure that everything was great.
Wonder why Chima is one of the best restaurants in South Florida.

Thank you guys!

We enjoyed our time and loved the food. The noise level was a little louder than I remember but it did not stop us from having our conversation. The service in the restaurant was excellent and friendly. We were celebrating our 10 year anniversary be cause our wedding reception was host by Chima's so the cost is bit more than we remember. The valet used to be included in the cost of the meal but now it not.

I've been to other Brazilian Steak Houses and without question, Chima is the very best. From the salad bar to the meats to the deserts, the entire meal was excellent. The grilled shrimp and salmon were also very tasty. Great service and nice abidance as well. Can't wait to dine there again.

We went with a party of 8 and got a fun, large table. The little starters are delicious, and the salad bar could be a meal in itself, but of course the meat is the main event. Several were excellent, in particular the “house special” top sirloin, the garlic shrimp, and the Parmesan pork. A few were disappointing, especially the tough, salty bacon wrapped filet, but we certainly Had enough choices that no one went hungry. Desserts are an afterthought, with the chocolate cake actually on the dry side. But after gorging on so much meat, who cares!

The restaurant itself is fantastic and is probably one of the better churrascarias in south Florida. It’s pricey and I think if you’re on a date you can appreciate something like this. The food is delicious and I wouldn’t recommend going there for a late dinner because of the type of food. We were there for CRAVE GFL and during restaurant month we like to try all of the different restaurants on the list. Great for a nice date, great if you want to have a more upscale dining experience but make sure you come prepared to eat. :)

I am deeply disappointed, I took a business associate and wife and had recommended Chima as the best Brazilian rodizio in South Florida, but the service was not consistent and the quality of food, the waiters keep coming around with the lowest quality offering rather than picanha, filet mignon, fraldinha, instead they kept insisting on chicken, sausage, pineapple, etc.
