I take my husband and dad every Father’s day and as always the food was Awesome! However, the table we were given was in a the middle of the floor! To say the least, I was not pleased and nothing else was available! My purse was knocked from my chair 3 times...tables were being carried in over our heads...it was entirely too much traffic!!

Before I made the reservation, I spoke to somebody at the restaurant to clarify the menu.
When we got there, we were told something different. However, after much discussion,
the manager honored the pricing and menu we were told about.

The restaurant is very pretty inside and the food was excellent. Our server was very good.

One of the worst experiences I have had. I have been to Chima multiple times with no issues.
This time there were multiples issues, first the server could not be found even for a refill. When we asked her for a refill or a specific cut of meat it was like we were bothering her. Second we spoke to Christina at the host stand to inform her my wife has a restriction of how much she can eat due to having gastric surgery. Each time we have come they are more than accommodating and give her a childs rate because that is the amount she eats. This time we advised them of her eating condition and she was still charged full price!

I love their salads and drinks. They push the drinks on you, but they stop when you say something. The meat menu makes you feel that you have died and gone to heaven. Do not expect for the guys to come with anything but chicken, sausage or ribs. You have to request and almost beg for the better cuts. We asked for salmon and by the time the guy come over, they had taken my plate. It did not look nicely grilled, so I did not care. If you know food, you will not be impressed. If you know that you have to be agressive, you will do well there.

Had dinner there June 2. Just myself and best friend, Frank. Our wife's let us both go have fun boat shopping. Left NY Friday 6/1 and returned 6/3. Purpose of trip. Buy a boat. Which I did!!!! (see nickname)

Had eaten at similar establishment in Mid-Town Manhattan. Best part of the entire evening besides the food being FANTASTIC was our main service waiter, Micheal. You can offer great food but in the end it ALWAYS remains a people business and the Fort Lauderdale Chima Steakhouse is extremely fortunate to have someone as personable and polished as Micheal. In Mid-Town Manhattan they lacked that and thats what either makes or breaks and evening.

Thank you for a great time.. The music outside was also of high caliper talent of 2 musicians which complimented our time inside enjoying our meal to relaxing outside with each of us enjoying a cigar and a Scotch & Bourbon, listening to great live music.

Been coming here since i was a little boy and ive always been obsessed with the meat. Although its my ultimate favorite place i have to say this last visit I am surprised to comment that the meat was under seasoned. Usually all the meats have an explosion of brazilian marinades. Maybe i just had an unlucky batch.. still my favorite reatuarant thanks.

This was my third visit to Chima and it didn't disappoint. We arrived early for a happy hour drink in the beautiful courtyard with fairy lights and live jazz. A perfect start. We then moved inside for our meal which was fantastic. Service was spot on. The salad bar had enough to offer for a guest that doesn't eat meat and they were very accommodating with fish options. The meat was cooked to perfection and the ambiance was great. The wine list was a little on the pricey side but had a good range of options. We did not need dessert. A great evening all in all.

Exquisite Brazilian-style meats, walked table-to-table by skewer-wielding servers. The picanya is especially wonderful. The ambiance and comfort are outstanding. So is the salad bar, but I like to reserve my appetite for the outstanding meats. The price for all this is steep, though. ($54 per person plus wine). So I reserve for a once-per-year treat.

It was the perfect setting for our Anniversary weekend get away to Fort Lauderdale, Fl.

The food and staff were fantastic and the price was not a concern because of the company I #hared this experience with! See you next year Chima’s!

Chima is the best churrascaria in South FL. It is far better than the other chains. The food is not over-salted and the service is great. Our favorites are the flank steak, the sausage, the garlic sirloin, and the grilled pineapple. The salad bar has great variety. We visit a few times a year.

Great place to celebrate a birthday or have a great dinner with friends. The atmosphere is nice, and the service is excellent. The salad bar was ok, but the different assortment of meats was fantastic. If you love to eat meats, then this is the place to go in Ft. Lauderdale.

We had a terrible experience! One of the services ( the gauchos) splashed my husband’s jacket with meat! The gauchos and the terrible waitresses that came to the table were very rude and rushing us the entire night. The price paid for the entire dinner was ridiculous for having had such awful service! I strongly do NOT recommend this place. This place shouldn’t even be opened! The owners should be ashamed of being such a rip-off restaurant.

Had a dinner party for six and enjoyed an excellent time together. Food was great and of course generous given the brazilian steakhouse theme. A little pricey for my midwest blood, but given the area and setting it seemed reasonable. I would encourage anyone to give this dining experience a try.

**It is also worth noting, that I accidentally double tipped the servers because I did not notice that one had been included in our bill. Yes, a careless mistake, but one the waiter corrected by coming outside as we left the property. WELL DONE!
