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.
Always great no other Brazilian steakhouse can compete.
Excellent food, excellent service. Celebrated Father’s Day and everyone enjoyed.
Amazing salad bar - one of the best we’ve ever seen. Fabulous meat and great service.
It was my dad’s birthday and first time there. We got the window table as requested, which was awesome as was the service provided by Ricardo and team! Thanks so much for making this a memorable experience!
My wife and I really enjoyed our first visit to Chima. Andrea is a chef and has a very high standard for restaurant food and service. I was overwhelmed by the smiles she provided with each taste. Keep this place in mind for that special night
Such a beautiful restaurant. Great food, great service. Must try
Ate too much drank too much it was a wonderful evening. As soon as our bellies and liver returned to normal we will return.
We would try again. Food was good. For a buffet style meal it was expensive. Service was excellant. Wine good also.
Have eaten in many high end amazing places in many different states. This is one of the top 3.
Had such an amazing dinner celebrating my anniversary with my husband! Great service from Jennifer and all the people serving the meats! Will be back as soon as possible
we frequently go to Chima m it s our favourite restaurant because of consistency of food quality and servers attention and dedication. always a perfect 10. we feel like we belong at Chima.
My favorite restaurant. It's my go to place for any special occasion. Our waiter, Michael, was the best! Whenever I go, I will definitely ask to be seated in his section!!!
Food and dinner service were both FANTASTIC! Would definitely recommend and visit again.
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.

Great food and service
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.
Food was delicious and high quality! Service was excellent and the restaurant was very pretty. Only thing is make sure you pace yourself as it is a lot of food!
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.
Been to this restaurant so many times , but this time was horrible, the food was like it was from yesterday!!
The meats where horrible, I felt like a was ripped off
The service was horrible
My husband hosted a bachelor party lunch for our future son in law; they loved it!
It was the perfect setting for our Anniversary weekend get away to Fort Lauderdale, Fl. We actually first visited this great setting a year ago and loved the atmosphere so much we booked a return for this years Anniversary and looking forward to the years to come and celebrating at this great establishment. 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!
It's an excellent "Brazilian" restaurant, whit helpful, and friendly staff....
Excellent food. Best service in town!
I had a really great time. Look forward to going again.
Everyone was so attentive and food was delicious!
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.
Excellent food and decor. Expensive. Should be reserved for special occasions or when trying to impress.
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!
Perfect as always. It was fun to see all of the mothers out for their special day. Excellent service and food.
It was my first time coming here and I absolutely loved it! The food was amazing
Food was delicious , clean and good service. The drinks were good too
Food was wonderful. Atmosphere was excellent. Highly recommended
