We loved our experience except for the sticker shock of the bill. We should have looked into it in advance, we never expected it to be so expensive and even though the entire experience was exceptional, it was far too expensive. We had a Groupon for $113 worth of food for $60, we asked if that was per person, for two people and the response was the manager will handle it. $113 was taken off the bill and we still paid over $230 for a party of 4. The salad bar was exceptional, everything was fresh and a great variety. We would like to come again but only for a special occasion.

I have been to Fogo many times and although the food was good at Chima, I prefer Fogo. Like their salad bar better. I felt Chima was very limited in choices.

As always, a wonderful experience. Meats flowed nicely. Service was great. Salad bar was fresh. Requests for certain meats we hadn’t seen yet were brought right out. It was pretty crowded but that didn’t stop them from their usual excellent service. Our absolute favorite restaurant.

We had a great time. The food was delicious. The restaurant was beautiful and well decorated. I cannot praise the staff enough! They were so nice and extremely attentive. As soon as we were running low on anything a server already had a replacement ready each time. I will definitely be back to Chima!

My boyfriend and I came here to celebrate our 7 year anniversary. We felt welcome it was our first time there. They all said happy anniversary to us. Explained how everything worked and didn't rush us out. We spent 2 hours there. The food quality is amazing and so good. Definitely happy with the decision we made. !!!

This was my second time at Chima's Steakhouse. The first time we were expected to accept seating at a table that was not thoroughly cleaned. Once a new table was chosen, the waiter or waitress (I don't recall which at this time) was very nice and attentive.

My second experience was worse as I was celebrating my brothers birthday. Thank God for the company and conversation because the waiter was not only rude, but also inattentive.

Since my Son's first experience was not a good one as well, I have chosen to simply write this restaurant off and therefore also not recommend it to anyone who asks.

This was our second visit to this establishment the food was amazing the service very quick and friendly. It was happy hour and they had a singer from the bar that we could hear in the main restaurant that wasn't really our taste but that's not really a fault of the restaurant. We will probably return here in the future

Very last minute visit to one of Philly's Staples. Chima manages one way or another to keep themselves relevant which I truly appreciate. One thing for certain, two things for sure...food has always (from my experience) been very good. Staff pays attention to detail....where the love is. Salad bar area is ALWAYS inviting...clean...abundance of food...clean...aesthetically pleasing. First time visit def not the last!
