    Almost everything was great. My experience with valet parking was not. I was the first customer of the day and had to wait a while for service, but I thought it was a great idea that I can text to get my car when leaving. So I did so during dessert. However it wasn’t until I angrily asked for my car before I got it. At some point I was standing outside waiting. And wouldn’t even be acknowledged. He waited on two people that came after I was already standing outside and was about to do the third until I said something, I will probably park in a garage next time

    The food was pretty good. I especially like the flavored beef. No shortage on seasonings I appreciate the chef. The salad bar wasn't very appetizing. I didn't see enough vegetables for those of us who like a great salad with dinner. The registration app told me there was a dress code and it absolutely wasn't. People wore shorts, tennis shoes and t-shirts. I felt terribly over dressed.

    Delicious food. There was a bit of inconsistency when asking for the meat temperature, specifically for the picanha, but overall still delicious. I love how they usually ask if there’s anything specific you want to come around. Their grilled cheese with honey is absolutely delicious.

    This is my second time dining with Chima and It definitely will not be my last. All of the meat they serve is very well seasoned and comes out in a timely manner not too slow and not too rushed. Everything on the salad bar was very pleasing super fresh and delicious. The service is always great and the meat chefs really take good care of the customers. Thank you to the entire staff for such a good time ❤️

    I showed up early so I had to wait the service while waiting was somewhat slow. However by the time my reservation was ready it quickly improved. I had forgotten how much food they give you my waitress was very professional and helpful. And for the price you really can not beat it, a perfect dinning experience and good place for a romantic evening with that special someone.

    We weren’t served all of the meats that we paid for. We also had to wait a long time for our bread, fried bananas and mashed potatoes to come out. Also, the salad bar was nothing special. Overall, probably wouldn’t return.
