    We came to celebrate our 5th anniversary on a Sunday night at 5:30pm. We were last there 5 years ago. It’s gone downhill. Dress code is not enforced, tables are too close together, ambience is lacking, way too loud. Our server was good, although the service was very slow. The meats were even slower to come around. Underwhelming to say the least. Sadly, we will not be back.

    We had to ask four times for brazilian lemonades, after 20 mins finally my wife got hers but it was not what she ordered. I never got mine so I had to drink water. I looked around and there where emplty tables so the restaurant was not full. No excuses for the bad service. Ive eaten at chima at least 30 times and it seems your service is getting worse. I know Fogo de Chao is opening a location in Fort Lauderdale, just keep that in mind.

    Food was great, but service was average. Waitress was very friendly, but not attentive. Had to track her down for additional drinks/water. Gauchos were slow to come to our table in the beginning because they got stuck at larger tables close to the kitchen, but that improved as the night progressed. Still a positive experience, but could be better if they address the issues above.

    I wasn’t expecting much since I red the last few reviews. When I sat at the table they kept coming with meat, (lamb,ribeye, pichaña,etc..) in les than 10 min I was extremely full of FOOD!!! The meat was excellent, cannot recommend this enough, the salmon and the grilled pineapple is a must to try. Please don’t be fooled by the people who say they don’t come out with meat, they are probably KARENS

    Excellent location for a couple or a small group. The service from Vivi was impeccable, and attentive. The salad bar was full of variety, was beautiful, and well appointed for vegetarian or carnivorous diets. It was replenished and refreshed throughout my meal. The meats and seafoods were hot, and fresh off the spit. The only things I would do differently next time: don’t go as a solo diner, and make a reservation for 6:00 PM or after. I went right after they opened and the meat variety was not yet fully represented by the wandering gauchos.

    This place has gone down since COVID. All restaurants have been hit hard with staff, but lack of experience and training are highly visible. The food was OK. Salad bar is lacking excitement and took forever for the food to come around. We went for Mother’s Day and I am sure that didn’t help, but they definitely didn’t shine

    We were there for Mother’s Day and everyone was friendly except the hostesses we’re pretty inflexible. They even tried to force us to sit a half hour early. The only other thing that made it rough was they seated us right next to the salad bar which was super high traffic. So that wasn’t a great experience. Those things aside… the food is what you go here for and it’s just amazing. Always. Every kind of meat you could imagine, chicken, sausage, veggie skewers, whole pineapples glazed in cinnamon and honey and cooked over a fire. Wow! The food never stops coming if you don’t want it to! Enjoy. We will return.
