Food was great and service with Maria was awesome.
We had a table inside and the room was very crowded and large parties were seated, so we were not very comfortable about it.
That's the only observation we have.
We may go back to the patio.

Food was good but the service was poor. Our waitress was kinda rude and blew our table off a bunch. Disappointed in the service, but the meats were really good and had a wide selection.

Food was excellent, server could have been a bit more attentive we kept asking other servers to order drinks and they were helpful. He might have been so busy with tables.

My server, Lucio, was perfect. Chima is my all-time favorite restaurant.

Enjoyed a nice Tucher with some cheese bread before diving into the salad bar and meats.

The Filet and Picanhia weren't as great as usual, but the Beef Rib and Garlic Sirloin made up for it!

As usual, I'll be back the next time I'm in Fort Lauderdale.

Some staff are wonderful; some need to be rotated out. This was my biggest challenge. Unlimited food options. It is incredible if you are a big meat eater (in which case give this 5-star for value) as $55/pp is reasonable for big eaters. The quality and quantity is incredible. Lovely, neutral b+w indoor decor is classy. Outdoor is a steal esp. during happy hour as the atmosphere here is quieter, more well-spaced out, and has incredible price-point deals!

We are used to going to Fogo de Chao and decided to try Chima since we were in the Fort Lauderdale on vacation (my wife and I). Came in to expect something similar to Fogo since it's in the same wheelhouse (food, price, ect.). Our dedicated server was very nice and friendly, and probably the best part.. However, definitely seemed like they were understaffed as he was trying to rush from table to table. Not a huge market table selection and the food from the market selection was not very great... some of the cuts were pretty good, but others were very tough.

The other weird thing, there was almost a brawl in the middle of the restaurant with two guys yelling at each other (for a good couple of minutes) while their friends/families and staff were holding them back and calm the situation down...

Out of the 8 restaurants we went to during our long weekend stay, this was by far on the very bottom of the list.

When you first arrive it’s so beautiful. Just don’t eat much of the bread and smoke turkey, because you don’t want to get full fast. The service was unbelievable great. Can not wait to go back there again. But it is a little on the high side.

We had a nice time for a birthday celebration. The food was exceptional, the server was professional and informative regarding the meat cuts and wine selections, and the restaurant took the necessary Covid precautions needed. The location of our table was the only disappointment. We sat by the salad bar which caused high traffic around our table. I took my boyfriend to celebrate his birthday and was hoping for a more romantic ambience, not the center stage. But overall, we loved it and would consider returning for special occasions.

We had a reservation but still had to wait around 30 minutes for a table. Thank god we had drinks from the bar because we saw our server when we sat down and then not again for maybe 30-40 minutes. The food was good, some of the steaks were very salty and some were bland. But the experience was fun! I don’t know if I’d go again.

It was amazing the food is off the charts great. My only suggestion would be to take it vantage of the on and off card so the food doesn’t all come at once. We didn’t pace ourselves and so much food came all at once we got full really fast

Regular at Chima. Tonight, the service was subpar. Went with a party of 4, got there 20 mins before my reservation time. Bar was packed with people unmasked....within literally inches of each other, like pre2020. Anyway, went back into the courtyard and was seated 10 mins later than my reservation time. No big deal. It took our server about 20 mins thereafter to get us our first cocktail. She checked on our table a couple of times and forgot to bring out more bread that we requested twice after the first request. I’ve actually received better service at Denny’s @ 3am. For a $455 check, I expect better service. Service I’m use to receiving on almost all other visits.

Overall Chima was a good experience.
The only exception was that our server offered us a Sunday special with 50% off on cocktails. After we were half way through our caipirinhas she told that she had misstated the special, actually it was a flat price (higher) for all you can drink...which obviously I would have declined, having to drive after lunch.
Eventually I got the 50% off deal, but had to send the check back...

The salad bar was not fresh and the meat was over cooked. I used to love the place but now it just feels they lost some quality. It could of also just been a bad night.

Not a lot of food choices. Almost seemed like a limited menu. The salad bar didn’t have a lot of different options either. I ordered a cocktail from the bar, way too overpriced. Johnny walker black and soda, $18.50.... Ridiculous
