Delicious, abundant food. Beautiful patio to look out on. Exceptional service. Are way too much, but it was a memorable experience. I'm partial to the yucca rolls and turkey spread.

Food was alright...nothing out of this world. I’d prefer to stick to Fogo or Texas de Brazil. Some of the meats were tasteless and tough. The restaurant has a lovely ambiance on Las Olas Blvd, but that wasn’t enough for me to want to return.

Have been going there several times. Never disappointed. Food is always good, as well as the service. Couple of days ago we were there for the thanksgiving and the turkey was to die for! Definitely coming back :)

The server was annoyed we weren’t ordering alcoholic beverages. You can tell he wanted to upcharge everything. What was confusing was our bill was still high and he received a nice tip. Not sure what he

Everything from the food to the service was impeccable. Might I add, I was there for Thanksgiving and as busy as it was, I did not have to wait for anything and never felt rushed. Great job, Chimas!

Decided to go for Thanksgiving with friends. Was hesitant because prior holiday experiences at other restaurants have been horrible. This was great! Food and service was great. Obviously noisy because it was packed but still festive. May have to make it a tradition when staying home for the holiday. Only suggestion is that they include a dessert in their pricing even if they have to up the cost a few dollars but $10-$13 for a small dessert is a bit much when you’ve got a large crowd. Good thing I made my pumpkin cheesecake and it was waiting for us at home!

This was our first year eating out for thanksgiving, it was a great decision to come here! My family really enjoyed that they had tradition thanksgiving options but then also got to have steak and shrimp. Great choice.

The food here used to be so good. Beef tenderloin and bacon wrapped chicken breast were my favorites. The tenderloin was very tough with gristle this time and the chicken breast has been replaced with low-cost chicken thighs. What happened?

Took my wife and mother to Chima for the first time and we were all totally satisfied with both the food and the service. The salad bar was amazing and the selection of meats and chicken were delicious. I would recommend Chima to anyone who wants to have an outstanding dinner experience.

Normally we have excellent service but today for the first time was very disappointing .
We had to constantly ask other waiters for assistance as our waiter was not around much!
The meats was good but we didn’t get too many servings n again we had to ask for more meat and didn’t get all the cuts that are advertised on the menu.
The same applied to our drinks, we had to wave to someone to come and take our orders.
Even though our lunch celebration was not up to the stands we had previously enjoyed I will go back as I really like this restaurant.

Nice evening and the meat and buffet was really very fine!
The headwaiters were nice but in the end of the evening not really interested in us. Did not get our ordered grilled pineapple what was sad.
The location is good! Outside is a beautiful terrace. Extreme noisy inside!
Valetparking is expensive and there's not really a big chance to park on your own.

Chima never disappoints!! Look out for their specials. Chima honored Veterans with a BOGO night on Veterans Day. On Wednesdays there is a wine special. Currently they have a Fall Special.

It was louder than I expected. We were sat next to a dinner party that had no type of respect for the surrounding tables. They were beyond loud and it became annoying !

Everything was amazing
The only thing is that when we ordered our drinks at the happy hour, the waiter lost his balance and dropped all the champagne and i got champagne on my dress and shoes. I, reacted nice and said that that meant happiness BUT the waiter didnt even brought napkins or considered on giving free champanged, he just dissapeared. I had to remove my shoes later to clean my shoes and feet with one napkin my mom had with her drink while toasting on my dad's 65th bday barefoot. Other than that, our waiter in our table was amazing and super friendly. All the food was good.

It was absolutely Magnificent. I have passed by that restaurant a few times and I finally took my husband for his 30th birthday. It was Godsend of an idea. Every single morsel of food was top of the line in taste, presentation and just flavor. That is rare in a restaurant. Sometimes some of the food is great but not everything. Down to the mash potatoes was exquisite, the salad bar, the desert, and ofcourse all the choicest meats. It was such an experience.

I expected our waiter to be nice but not that nice and genuine in her service to us. She was extremely vigilant to all of her tables and made us feel as if she was friend who was looking out for us in anything we needed and in even getting more of what we wanted and not just what was nearby. She was observant and not hovering but she was present. Not am easy skill to master.

The food was amazing. I loved the Filet Mignon and the Giant Shrimp and the Rodizio. All the meat were cooked so tastefully and let me not forget the Chicken thighs. You wouldn't expect them to make that taste like never before either but they did. I consider myself a genuine foodie and take my food seriously, I am quite impressed. And this will be our new favorite restaurant.

The ambiance is gorgeous and wonderful, the different areas of the restaurant were themed slightly different make every area truly wonderful to be in with the architecture and design (I also care about these things). It was elegant, contemporary and calming and comforting. With a fireplace inside the wall. Live jazz and classical entertainment outside but with beautiful music inside as well.

All the servers were very pleasant and polite and were skilled in how they handled the food and in serving. Every one there was at the top of the line in hospitality. Sometime people luck out and get a good waiter but as we moved through the room we could tell it's just the culture.
