Very small portions of mashed potatoes for 3 we literally had a tablespoons each. Need more side dishes for all the meat that’s available.

I come here often, usually the service is fairly decent. Unfortunately this time around it was sub par at best. We did have a large group, but waiting 45 mins for guests drinks to find out they "forgot" and to just randomly be stopped serving food is a shame. We went way to long between steaks, didn't see half the menu until we requested it, it was an overall bad experience this time around. Considering it was a 1200 dollar bill for the 13 of us, I would have expected a little bit more.

Don't get me wrong, I will come back because I enjoy the food and the environment, but I was extremely dissatisfied with the service last night.

Christina was an amazing waitress, she was very fun and polite. Eager to make our birthday celebration one to remember, she made sure to give amazing recommendations. The food was great and you can never go wrong with the roasted pineapple.

Everything was great from the service to the variety of meats. Great place where we could bring our kids to have a nice meal but loud enough that we didn’t have to worry if our kids were a little loud. Also love how the tables are spaced out so you’re not on top of other diners.

Our out-of-town team enjoyed a great meal at Chima in Philadelphia. The service was great, the food was fresh and the meats were offered at your preferences (med rare, med, etc.) Everyone enjoyed and left satisfied and happy. Great night.

I had 20 cards given by a manager in 12/2019 they would not honor them. The manager took the cards and just gave me the bill. Rude would be the correct words to describe him.

Wonderful! The staff, caipirinhas, and quality of the meat were 10/10. Our server was solicitous and helped made sure that we saw our favorite cuts. I've been to this restaurant 20 or so times and Fogo about ten. I pick Chima every time.

The food was better pre-covid. There seemed to be more meat choices then than there are now. Not really as good as it used to be. I like it a lot better for their happy hour.

Although staff seemed overwhelmed, service was splendid. Food took some time to come around, seemed only 4 people were serving. It was a nice experience. Although, towards the end of the visit, a large group arrived and was very noisy. Other than that, food is still highly recommended.

The only steakhouse worth going to for the price. Everything was perfect! no repeated meats coming to our table, no waiting for meat to come. The service was amazing from our server, who while dealing with other tables was always around and ready to help us without overdoing it. The best dining experience I’ve ever had
