The food was fantastic, waiters brought fresh off the grill meat very frequently. The atmosphere was very relaxing and the side dishes were plentiful.

The food is better than most of that kind of restaurants I know. Picanha and ribs are amazing, also potatoes puree and turkey small side and bread with cheese. Wine selection is great. The two bad things that I notice, there’s a funny smell when you entered the restaurant, not terrible but we all noticed that, the other is that the wine was served when we all almost have finished. Other than that, food is great, and the servers come with food very fast.

The waiter was nice but obviously frazzled due to the limited staff. It took at least 1/2 hour to get our drinks and our dessert but they were surprising quick in getting us the check when we asked. The food was decent but the environment was “ratchet” for lack of better words. It was not worth the $200+ bill.

The place has gone down over the years and as of last night we've had enough of it. The salad bar offers less and less quality food as time goes on, along with a reduction of items to choose from.

The Meat: Cold, tasteless, hard to chew, and recooked.

Adding insult to injury, they continue to raise their prices.

The food was just okay. We told our waiter it was a birthday we were celebrating and we told her to bring out the complimentary cheesecake for the birthday boy. She completely forgot. On top of that, as we were waiting outside by the valet parking for them to bring our car, the waiter came all the way outside to ask for more tip and she said “I didn’t charge you for the child” … well DUH the child didn’t eat absolutely anything why would you charge for him? Extremely unprofessional to walk all the way out to ask for more tip. We weren’t completely satisfied and left what we thought was fair. Isn’t the amount up to the person? Ridiculous. We will never go back again.

Food was great. However. Our table was tucked in a corner the furthest from the serve yourself salad bar. I had to request multiple times to have the cuts of meat sent over.

When they were sent it was great. However there was multiple times throughout the dining experience where my plate was just empty.

The lamb and salmon were amazing as well as the flank steak so flavorful. The salmon was only sent around to my table once. And a small piece.

I think it would’ve been a better experience if we didn’t have such an odd seat in the restaurant.. however it was slightly disappointing.

Chima is one of my fav steakhouses in South FL. It was very crowded on Labor Day so our service was a little slow. The meat was not as fresh and hot as we typically have.

Food and service service was amazing! Very nice place over all. We were seated by a loud obnoxious table of 10 frat guys so it definitely ruined the ambiance.
I would love to return on a more quiet evening.

CHIMA has always been a wonderful eatery. Our family has been celebrating special events for the past 20 + years and the restaurant still looks crispy fresh clean and the quality of the food remains outstanding. Last night we celebrated our son's 26th birthday and it was a fabulous experience!!!

Thank you CHIMA

Our primary server, Yaffa, was amazing! We had a party of 6 and never had to wait for anything (drink refills, additional sides, etc.). We will definitely ask for her section next visit. I would also like to point out the 'Gauchos' were outstanding as well! They were extremely friendly and remembered who within our party liked what meats and how they were cooked...they even made a point to come back multiple times with those specific items that each person really liked! We are all "foodies" and put this in our top 3 (if not #1) overall for food quality/taste and experience!!

This is one of the guaranteed Home Run resturaunts you will find in Florida. I say, just go and you will never look back. Only forward until the next time you can have dinner there again.

Chima has always been the unique place when compared to those others that try to serve meat in a similar manner. Those that go to Chima know the difference and that is where they continue to go.

We went last night for our anniversary and the lady that took care of us was amazing, we didn't order dessert but she knew that was our anniversary and brought us a complementary cheese cake a super nice act so i gave a 5 star review.
food, service great...love this place, the only complaint is that it was too full and noisy but overall great experience. I recommend without a doubt!!

My girlfriend and I saw this place while on vacation the last time we were in Florida, but was not make a trip over. This time we reserved a table for our anniversary. Unfortunately, we had a very long day and some other obligations caused us to run a little late, but the restaurant held our reservation and took care of us. Vivien, our waitress, was awesome and energetic. The food was phenomenal. It was the first time we had been here, and also the first time my girlfriend had eaten at a Brazilian Steakhouse. Highly recommend!

Understand the restaurant was super busy.
Table was still kind of dirty when we sat. There was still food on the chair and floor. Server was super nice…friendly but took a while to close out and come back to check in on us. Meat selections also didn’t really make there way too out section.
