    Majority of the meats are so tender and delicious except the salmon. The grilled pineapple was an added treat. The salad bar is filled with a variety of salads and veggies. I truly enjoyed it!

    This place was AMAZING! 5 Star restaurant hands down. $65 per person for a 18 course meat selection. Perfect for any celebration. Inside was so beautiful and clean. Servers and host were kind and helpful. Top tier restaurant!

    Started very good with a waiter who seem very nice, then mid way through the meal our waiter disappeared and we were in need of drinks but couldn’t find him. Another waiter showed up after a while and we asked him for drinks. Again, this waiter disappeared and we saw that he was serving a table of about 20 people. Which I get would take almost all his attention but that is poor planning by the restaurant to give this poor waiter. Bunch of large tables (ours was 5 people) to wait on. After a long while we decided that we wanted to look at the dessert list, however we again could not locate the new waiter. After a while we finally saw him a flagged him down. He provided us the list of desserts and disappeared yet again. We decided on what we were ordering and continue to wait, he finally came back so we placed our order… 20 mins later and still no dessert, empty glasses on the table and we were done with our meals 25 minutes before. At this point we had it with the poor service so we flagged down the first employee we saw and told her that we ordered desserts 20 mins prior and nothing was brought as of yet, so we wanted to cancel the desserts and just get the check. She said that she would check the back that he was probably getting them… and not 30 secs after she was gone the very first server we got that disappeared on us brought the desserts. We are always very courteous and polite with our waiters and love to tip very very well but this service left me not wanting to give them more than 18% when I normally do 25%. I have to say that I will rather continue to go to Fogo De Chao as the service at Chima was a real let down.

    The hostess at the door who seated us appeared to be uninterested in being at work. There was no proper greeting as we always receive when we approach the counter to give our names. On the way out the same uninterested vibe. We have been coming to Chima for many years. We never had a problem with any of the staff. Hopefully someone will be at the desk who represents the restaurant better.
