Valet service was poorly attentive and cumbersome.
Reservation was accepted well.
Table service was poor. Waiter never brought my drink. Server would throw items on table. Nothing like the china experience in Tyson’s Corner, VA. We ate and left within 20 minutes. We didn’t want to be there any longer. Outside area was beautifully adorned and live music was great.

There a plenty of Rodízio's you can go to, but Chima is, hands-down, the best I've ever been to.

After the first round gauchos disappeared and we were looking straight to the kitchen seeing every time meat was coming out but they were just turning the other way and ignored us for a long time , several minutes later server came and ask if everything was fine we told her that we were waiting for more meats and only after that they came back to our table with more meats

Everything was delicious except the mashed potatoes. The meats were the best! Service was great. But definitely overpriced! Good for special occasions.

The carpet needs to be changed. I can smell mildew. The salad bar was limited relative to other competitive restaurants and the cost is higher at Chima. Overall I will not return..one and done

This type of place is always good for a special occasion to be able to handle a large group in a timely manner. The decorations outside and atmosphere are beautiful. The selection on the salad bar is numerous and all very fresh and flavorful. And, of course, the meat selection was delicious - even loved the pineapple. They were able to provide rarer selections to those who had that preference or more well done. Only negative comment - the shrimp was a bit overcooked but everything else was great.

Overall, we had a wonderful experience at Chima.

The food was great, the servers were attentive and the atmosphere perfect.

The salad bar was the most expansive and varied that we have EVER experienced. And I have never seen another restaurant have someone dedicated to diligently monitor temperatures and rotate items as efficiently as Chima did. Very impressive!

The meat presented was well prepared, flavorful and plentiful. Sides included “mashed” potatoes, fried bananas and fresh hot “carved” pineapple covered with sugar and cinnamon - delicious!!

In a time when places are struggling to find help, Chima was very well staffed with people who were both efficient and extremely pleasant. They must be doing something right in hiring, training and motivating their staff. Bravo!

I don’t usually post any negative reviews, because quite frankly, I don’t think the world deserves any more negativity than what is currently going on, but I’d like to point out something from my experience I hope other guests don’t have to encounter. So you can see I gave a 4 star review despite the negative comment I have to make. And that’s because the staff when we sat down, the food, and the service, were quite excellent. But I couldn’t help but have a sour taste in my mouth over how my family and I were greeted when we first entered. I had a reservation at 8, we arrived slightly before 830. The woman looked for our reservation and in the most condescending tone, she said “well you are aware you are a FULL 30 minutes late, don’t you?” To be honest I was shocked at how downright rude that was. I understand we had a reservation and we couldn’t make it on time, but try to be a bit more understanding for the future guests next time. Even my family was shocked at how rude the woman was. We had car troubles, yes I am aware that we are not on time. I do have a watch, thank you. Also, the restaurant has many many open seats. To be honest the only reason I was polite in return was because I was hosting my uncle and cousins and I haven’t seen them in years. Regardless, the rest of the experience was fantastic. But I’d like to keep in mind to check the attitudes of the people you put in front. It might just have someone else leave before they sit down, being greeted like that, regardless of the reason.

My only criticism is that when I told the server I did not like the lava cake, he replied saying “that’s a first”… which I felt was rude. He had no right to invalidate my taste buzz. The food is delicious and he was very nice aside from that.

Viele Leute und wahrscheinlich zu wenig Personal! Gingen am Schluss nochmals ans Salat und Vorspeisenbuffet weil ewig niemand mehr mit Fleisch vorbei kam!
Die Qualität der Speisen war sehr gut! Kommen sicher wieder!
