Had a table for 14 we had to wait about 20 mins or more for our table to be ready. The manager was a bit nasty fast as her attitude about the whole wait. We were having a surprise dinner for my sister and was only concerned about her walking in and seeing everyone. Otherwise the waiters and servers were amazing food was great.

Go there at least once a month, this time I was automatically charged a 18% tip for two people? I normally tip 22% so he missed out but it left a bad taste in my mouth to be charged presumptively for drinks that weren’t filled or plates that I had to fetch myself. The server was base level, I love the helpers. They are always so friendly

Pretty long time between food courses in the beginning and seemed like we were just waiting around while everyone around us was getting served. Food is good but having to wait up to 10 min to have a different cut come to your table is annoying, especially when about half the restaurant was empty.

Food is good, service good, salad bar selection not as much to choose from as before covid. What gives this a 1 star rating is the fact that they add an 18% tip to EVERY check-regardless of size. That is wrong.

Good meat selection. Pineapple is great choice. The salad bar offers a good selection and is well presented. Restaurant was clean, cdc guidance was applied and people wore their masks when entering the Restaurant, or moving about. I was pleased they even put hand sanitizer and gloves near the salad bar. The waiter Nam was amazing and patient. He walked us through the process of ordering and gave great recommendations for the drinks and dessert. Will we go back again? YES!!!! Is it easy to get to? Yes right off 95N, take exit to market street and it's at the intersection of market and JFK Blvd. You can even take the train then and walked from 30th street station to the restaurant on a beautiful summer day. The valet parking was good and professional.

We were very disappointed because the waiter did not take the time to explain the menu { first time there} also seemed to be in a hurry to take the order, disappointed because all the food was not available that was advertised, and being seniors not that savvy with telephone apps. Our bill was ($247.00+) for the three of us quite expensive.

Overall the food was very good and we enjoyed the experience, we will visit again and will recommend CHIMA.

Per usual, the food was outstanding, there were a few new items on the menu that we all enjoyed such as the cajun ribeye and the shrimp.
It's restaurant week so I'm going to attribute the slow drink service to that.
Chima is still my favorite Brazilian steakhouse in the city and I'll definitely be back.

Went during restaurant week. Upgraded to the $48 full experience. The meat was decent although the beef ribs were UNBELIEVABLY salty. The mashed potatoes were quite literally the consistency of mayonnaise. And the fried bananas were coated in some cheap breading and were not very good. It’s very nice looking in there, clean and somewhat modern. The salad bar was very limited, atleast compared to Fogo. It’s two sides of the same exact items, which was basically just a few salads, some smoked salmon, and cheese. Nothing to get excited about. Our main waiter, or the guy who gave us the whole rundown when we were first seated, was friendly but quite aloof. He told us the wine specials, I asked if those were the only drinks available because it was also happy hour, he said that the bar and happy hour were actually separate from the main dining area. Okay, no problem. A few minutes later I asked if I was able to go buy a drink at the bar, and he nonchalantly nodded and said “yeah sure”. I went over to the bar to order a drink, and the rude and dismissive male bartender said I wasn’t allowed to order from the bar, and that if I was sitting in the dining room I had to order through my waiter. I told him my waiter had just told me the complete opposite, and that I had to come over to the bar to order because it was separate from dining. He shrugged his shoulders and basically said sorry I don’t know what to tell you. I asked if it was just because I was looking at the happy hour menu, as I had no problem ordering off the regular menu. He still said no. I’ve never been to an establishment that doesn’t allow you to walk up to their bar to order a drink, pay for it, and take it back to your table. Yet, I wasn’t allowed to order from my table either.. There was clearly a HUGE disconnect between the bartenders and the waiters. I don’t know who was right, but either way that “policy”, if it even is one, is ridiculous. I won’t be returning.

There was a point where we had to wait about 15-20 minutes for meat to come pass. It wasn't that busy, so I'm still not sure why there was a hold up. We asked 2 different servers and they kept telling us, its coming right out. It was like we were forgotten for a bit. Besides that the food was tasty.
