Excellent venue. Food is very good. Drinks prices are completely insane vs other restaurants but the core price for the meal is reasonable.

Ate at Chima Tuesday night with a colleague. It was our second visit this year when in town on business. The ambiance is nice, the service is always good but the so called higher quality cuts are pretty marginal. Kind of sad when I prefer the sirloin over the tenderloin. I normally would not be writing a review, but both of us got sick in the middle of the night after eating dinner there. Chima will not be on our list next month when we return.

Unfortunately after spending a good bit of money, both my wife and myself got very very sick from the restaurant. After calling for a refund they only allowed a free dinner. This would be acceptable had the amount of money I paid was lower.

Chima is definitely a dining experience. An amazing salad bar and endless supply of perfectly cooked meats.

Delicious, abundant food. Beautiful patio to look out on. Exceptional service. Are way too much, but it was a memorable experience. I'm partial to the yucca rolls and turkey spread.

Food was alright...nothing out of this world. I’d prefer to stick to Fogo or Texas de Brazil. Some of the meats were tasteless and tough. The restaurant has a lovely ambiance on Las Olas Blvd, but that wasn’t enough for me to want to return.

Quality of meat was average and most beef cuts tasted the same. All meat and fish was under-seasoned. Getting to and from the salad bar was chaotic as all coming and going traffic throughout the restaurant is funneled through one narrow aisle.

Have been going there several times. Never disappointed. Food is always good, as well as the service. Couple of days ago we were there for the thanksgiving and the turkey was to die for! Definitely coming back :)

The server was annoyed we weren’t ordering alcoholic beverages. You can tell he wanted to upcharge everything. What was confusing was our bill was still high and he received a nice tip. Not sure what he

Everything from the food to the service was impeccable. Might I add, I was there for Thanksgiving and as busy as it was, I did not have to wait for anything and never felt rushed. Great job, Chimas!

Decided to go for Thanksgiving with friends. Was hesitant because prior holiday experiences at other restaurants have been horrible. This was great! Food and service was great. Obviously noisy because it was packed but still festive. May have to make it a tradition when staying home for the holiday. Only suggestion is that they include a dessert in their pricing even if they have to up the cost a few dollars but $10-$13 for a small dessert is a bit much when you’ve got a large crowd. Good thing I made my pumpkin cheesecake and it was waiting for us at home!

This was our first year eating out for thanksgiving, it was a great decision to come here! My family really enjoyed that they had tradition thanksgiving options but then also got to have steak and shrimp. Great choice.

The food here used to be so good. Beef tenderloin and bacon wrapped chicken breast were my favorites. The tenderloin was very tough with gristle this time and the chicken breast has been replaced with low-cost chicken thighs. What happened?

Took my wife and mother to Chima for the first time and we were all totally satisfied with both the food and the service. The salad bar was amazing and the selection of meats and chicken were delicious. I would recommend Chima to anyone who wants to have an outstanding dinner experience.

Normally we have excellent service but today for the first time was very disappointing .
We had to constantly ask other waiters for assistance as our waiter was not around much!
The meats was good but we didn’t get too many servings n again we had to ask for more meat and didn’t get all the cuts that are advertised on the menu.
The same applied to our drinks, we had to wave to someone to come and take our orders.
Even though our lunch celebration was not up to the stands we had previously enjoyed I will go back as I really like this restaurant.

Nice evening and the meat and buffet was really very fine!
The headwaiters were nice but in the end of the evening not really interested in us. Did not get our ordered grilled pineapple what was sad.
The location is good! Outside is a beautiful terrace. Extreme noisy inside!
Valetparking is expensive and there's not really a big chance to park on your own.
