I love this place! I was hesitant about going to a restaurant now during the pandemic but I felt safe since they’ve definitely cut down on capacity and all of the workers were wearing masks. Service was great like always and food was delicious.

The dinner was way more expensive than I says before.
The servers didn’t care much not just for our table. I’ve seen the other tables looking for help and asking repeatedly for something.

Enjoying specials occasions with those special friends is like enjoying a trip to the exotic
country of Brazil while dinning at Chima's . Enjoy the Brazilian music and the original costumes of their country.

Definitely plenty of meat options, though some were not very flavorful. Salad bar had very little options, but this could be due to covid.

We always have an amazing time when we come to Chimas, but Father’s Day was a bit uncomfortable. My husband was the passenger and I drove in to the valet section and no one opened our door, than secondly the valet demands I pay him in the beginning, I said no problem let me give you my card. He takes me over to the booth and my husband said don’t worry I’ll pay cash. He rudely said to my husband in front of my kids excuse me sir do you not see I am with a customer. I’m like are you serious he is with me. Still hesitating to even take his cash I which my husband even tipped him. But as soon as we came inside I wish we would have known mask are mandatory to wear so I would have them ready. Well regardless the staff provided them to us no worries and we enjoyed our Dinner. But I have never been disappointed with Chimas!

Chima is a great restaurant! My family frequents this restaurant whenever we get the opportunity. However, my service was not good on Sunday. Father's Day is a special time and sadly, I was disappointed with the treatment my family received. The manager tried to make atone for the acts of my waitress. But, I was still left feeling neglected as I patron.

My wife and I have been going to Chima since we moved to Florida in 2003. The restaurant is our best choice for Steakhouse and one of our best choices for ambiance. We love to hang out outside with a drink in hand while we wait for our table (not now that we have a pandemic).

If the weather is not good to be outside, we spend some time at the bar, where we often get to meet some people while we wait for our table. Needless to say, we love the Caipirinhas and the Brazilian Lemonades. My wife enjoys a great selection of wines. The service has always been way above average.

Sometimes it gets to be a bit noisy because the space gets filled with people very quickly - and they talk, so it's not exactly a quiet place. The salad bar gives you enough options to find at least a few things you like to accompany your meat.

Finally, if you like to eat meat, this is Paradise! We love the 'Picanha' and the 'Churrasco', but the best experience of course is to try all of the meats, or at least the ones you like.

The price you pay is well worth the visit and the pleasure.

Visited after the Covid Re-Opening and the service and cleanliness was more than you could have ever asked for. The freshly stocked salad bar was serviced by a staff member to personally assist you with your selections. The meats were fresh and tasty as always. Thank You for such a wonderful experience to all Chima Staff!!

Too many people in the restaurant during this COVID time. I didn’t see any safe preoccupations. The staff was wearing their masks but that is it. People sitting very close to each other. Not going again during this pandemic.

Had great service and great food! Had great safety precautions put in place for covid while continuing to have the ambiance of elegant dining. I'm staying in west palm beach and will be driving back down for dinner again this Saturday. I wasn't planning on it but I couldn't resist since I'm from out of town and in Florida for only a few more days! You won't regret the fish with the pomegranate sauce, lamb chops, ribs, and all other fine cuts of meat with the one of the best salad bar selections and appetizers that indulge in brasils finest home and soul food. I've been a long time customer for the last 10 years and can Imagine I will definitely be for 10 more. Service and drinks were fluid and incredible! Didn't have to wait to long for steak and severs brought you what you want without hesitation and the best customer service!

There were fewer salad bar choices since our last visit. Many items were not very good. The meat was plentiful and basically good. Service was great. Value was poor. I love the venue, but it is doubtful we will return.

As usual, the dining experience at Chima was outstanding. We enjoyed all aspects of dinner at Chima. The restaurant, for the most part, follows the guidelines of the CDC. When we were seated at a table that was NEXT to another table, we asked to be seated at table that was six feet from other tables. The hostess readily complied. The price is getting expensive.

Your social distancing was fantastic, your staff, as always, was very attentive and accommodating and the ambience always fantastic.

The salad bar, however, could have been a little bit more stocked with some of the things we were used to in the past and the fact that there was no pecannye roast or rib eye disappointed us.

In all, I can still say it was an 80% or above experience at my favorite steakhouse.

We will be back!

Great service and ambient. No the variety of food expected. I think the Orlando restaurant is better. Very pricey for what it is. This restaurant is $$$$. I think you can have a more romantic-luxury, nice, by the beach dinner for half.

This is our favorite Steakhouse. During these pandemic times, we were glad to see that Chima cares for the well-being of its customers. We felt safe at our table, respecting social distancing from others while we were there.

The service is impeccable. The diversity of meats served is perfect. The taste is like no other in South Florida. Needless to say, we strongly recommend this restaurant if you are a meat lover and prefer only the best service.
