Everything was good, service was a slow. Our original server Kamala? seemed to more concerned with her coworkers than serving us, but mid way through the meal Vivian showed up and was very attentive!

They do not care about covid safety. Seating people who didn’t have a mask on, people at salad bar with no mask and valet brought my car up without a mask on. Restaurant was packed.

The service was great!!! Our table manager was on top of our request for extra cinnamon pineapple. They carved a full plate just for us. Yummm!!!! Amazing. All the varieties of meat cooked to perfection. Servers were generous with the portions. Just kept carving until you said it was enough. They also circled the room frequently so you didn’t have to wait for your favorite cut of meat to arrive back at the table. We will definitely be back!!!

Great service and lots of outstanding meat. Sides were refilled quickly. We are still bitter they got rid of the Parmesan Pork and chicken wrapped in bacon but everything else was great. They got rid of it at all their locations, as we often go to the Tyson’s Corner location and it’s no longer available there either. We love Chima even though it is very expensive!

If you wanted sirloin they came by every 5 minutes, if you wanted and asked several times for Ribeye, they were no where to be found. Pot service for dinner. We had to ask for warm mashed potatoes several times to finally after 7 attempts to receive any that were edible. I have eaten at the Chima in Tysons corner outside of Washington DC and it was a much much better experience. Very sad.

From the moment we arrived it was a beautiful experience. From the walkway through the stunning garden entrance area everything was absolutely beautiful.
We enjoyed Chima on our last night in Fort Lauderdale. We went to several eateries during our stay, by far Chima was our favorite.

Service was terrible. Manager gave me a 10.00 discount on every meal and then a free meal for the next time. But there will not be a next time. That was not satisfactory especially for a meal ticket that was 800.00. This used to be my favorite restaurant. Not anymore.

We go to Chima often and always on March 24th every year to celebrate my husbands birthday. Last night was a real disappointment. The salad bar was very basic, we understand probably as a result of Covid. The meat selection was very limited even though we asked a few times. We were so looking forward to the picana and when it finally arrived it was burnt. We couldn’t at it. Lastly, the server took it upon himself to surprise us with a cheesecake for Frank’s birthday only to charge us $10 for it. Neither of us eats cheesecake sadly. It’s safe to say we won’t be coming back anytime soon if ever. And the meal was not cheap, was not worth the almost $200 it cost for us two when you factor in a drink each, tax and tip!

This was my first time visiting so I expected my waiter to be more attentive. He failed bring my beverage, he wasn't proactive with offering or explaining the side options, whereas the guys who were serving The Meats did Phenomenally well, explained what the meats were and encouraged us to try them as well as offered sauces. The ambiance was nice. People were loud as Hell talking at their tables. I don't know if it were the alcohol or if they were acting out purposely. My boys and I enjoyed our food and the experience overall. I would go again.
