Always a phenomenal experience at Chima. You simply cannot go wrong here; meat lover or not, even the salad bar is a work of art.

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 !

Good We made a reservation but we had to wait 1 hour for a table. Maybe it's the only thing they should improve

Table reserved for 8:30pm but we had to wait for 45 minutes more !
Too noisy - bad service : need to ask several times to get some meat
And finally very expensive !

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.

Great place to take visitors. Compared to other all you can eat steak places Chima is a step above. The outdoor patio is gorgeous for drinks, they even had live music this past Weds. The dining room is beautiful with real tablecloths. The salad bar is the best and for those who don't eat meat a full meal including one entre of fish, chicken or meat. The food was overall good. Some cuts of meat I didn't like, but others loved. So everyone will be happy. Also celebrated a birthday and the desserts were in-house made and delicious.

I’ve eaten at many places with a very similar business model under various names and the food here wasn’t worth the price point. $165 for two people buffet style was way higher than any other I have visited.

A lot of hype but was let down. The AC needs to be turned on as well it was way too hot to even really keep an appetite.

Everything was great. The server was Dani he was very attentive and very helpful. It was both my boyfriend and my first time here. The food was outstanding. We will never go to Texas de Brazil again. Dani brought a birthday treat for my boyfriend and it was a nice surprise and a great way to end our meal. Thanks to all the great staff, we left with happy full bellies!!

The overall experience was wonderful along with great food and service. It was a celebration of 2 birthdays and a recent wedding. The only problem I had was that I reserved our table a while ago and mentioned both my husband and I had birthdays and were going to use the discount code. I again repeated it to the hostess when we arrived who said yes, I see your discount codes right here. Yet, when I received the bill? There was no discount and I was told by the server that we needed to do that prior to coming. Once I pointed out that we DID set this up ahead of time, he had the discounts applied BUT? added gratuity to our 5 people table. I actually would have left more than 18%, but since it seemed as if this was done because I insisted on the birthday comps? I did not feel the need to add to that tip.

It was our anniversary and my mother in law called to pick up the tap as a surprise for us. They never made us aware of that. When she called the next day, management said that we were 1.30 hr late and that they canceled the reservation because of it. We were there on time and they just failed to follow the instructions. Disappointing!
