Ambiance was nice , its my 4th time visiting , service was not attentive to my table, just me and my two teenagers. I had to ask the waiter for items more than once, and the apology was am sorry there is other tables to tend to as they were larger ... ok its why we made a reservation... I still provided a good tip bc its what i beleive in , but it surely was not deserved at all. Not to mention the items that were brought to our table were chicken kabobs , sausage , sirloin and flank steak , if you want the premium slices such as rib eye , lamb chops etc you better ask for that as soon as you sit. I had to ask for it , its my sons favorite and by the time they brought it he didnt want it anymore as he got full picking off his plate waiting for it. What was even more dissapointing is on the way out my daughter goes wow mom they had shirmp and salmon , sometimes she decides she is a pescatarian :).. my point is our table was not properly served felt lost in the shuffle :( ...

This was our first visit, and it was outstanding. The entrance with the very large lighted trees was really nice, and the inside of the restaurant was spacious and elegant. We had a drink in the bar during happy hour. The service during our dinner was great, and of course, the food was spectacular.

Had to wait outside for 30 minutes to be seated with a reservation, it was almost 90 degree on a sun, way too hot!
Choice of meats was just ok, so was a salad bar. The biggest disappointment was the lamb chops, it was about 50% of fat in it, I was not able to eat it at all even it's one of my favorites.

Chimas always been my favorite Brazilian steakhouse and that’s the reason I decided to spend Mother’s Day there. My experience with the front desk was horrible. I felt discriminated because I had a 10 month old baby. They offer me a table all the way in the back near the service station. I didn’t feel comfortable there due to the high demand of the station. I explain to the host and her words were: “
You’ll have to seat there!”. I didn’t want to ruin my Mother’s Day and quietly accepted to seat there. I’m addition, my husband couldn’t enjoy his $60 meal because the ac was too high and he was cold. I end up eating with only of my kids. The meat took a while to come to the table and I couldn’t enjoy As much as I wanted… the only good thing was the server Sebastian, who was very attentive and polite. Overall, I wouldn’t recommend visiting the restaurant if you have
An infant and for a special occasion such as Mother’s Day.

It was our first visit to China and was somewhat disappointed. The food was just ok and side dishes cold that came to our table. We were more disappointed when we got our check and gave the waitress a credit card along with 2 gift cards and when I questioned her about the total she said oh I am sorry but your tip was added in?? We were never told that the tip would be added in for a table of 4 and never was told and furthermore never gave us a receipt showing it was added and our certificates applied. To us this is very sneaky and dishonest. When we asked for a receipt with the breakdown the waitress said I will go get that and she never came brought it and was very obvious she was trying to avoid us and hoping we would leave. We got tired of waiting and left and will never return. They had no right adding a amount to my card without giving me a receipt. So word to the wise check your checks before signing and agreeing to total on your check.
