We had an excellent dinner in a comfortable environment. If you would like to avoid smaller children, I would wait to make reservations until after 7. Everything was spectacular, right down to dessert. I just miss my Lemon Drop Martini. it is no longer on the menu. I did not ask if they could make it though. Overall 5 Stars!

I enjoyed the atmosphere and food, although the servers were a bit messy on the table cutting the meat. I would still recommend this place.

Menu was changed, but surprisingly the pineapple was amazing. Some of the meat lacked the flavor I was used to, but overall it was decent.

I was very happy to experience an outstanding time at Chima. I took my grandfather who is hearing impaired along with my son and our server Karla did such an outstanding job waiting on us. Her patience and attentiveness was 100 percent top notch. The food was great, grilled shrimp was added to the menu which was a great touch. My grandfather definitely enjoyed his first experience at Chima, he was stuffed!! Cant wait to go back.

I know COVID has really put a damper on a lot of business so my expectation wasn't through the roof. I really wished that the food was seasoned better. My first experience at Chima was phenomenal almost 2 years ago. This time I was sooooo disappointed. Flavorless meat, salmon, and beans. I want my $195 back. Not sure if I'll return.

I love Chima and it was one of my Father's favorite restaurants, so going in his memory was awesome! Our only issue was that each time we had to keep waiting because the meats were too well done.

The food overall was good and we had a good time, but I had a few first timers with me who didn't get the wow that I wanted them too.. perhaps we will come again on a non holiday.

In all..you can't go wrong with Chima..good food, good drinks, good atmosphere.

The service was very slow and we arrived before it got crowded. We only had around five different types of meat come around to our table. The meat was dry. I have been to Chima before and loved it. I was very disappointed to pay $131.00 for the service and the food. We also waited a long time for the check and we had a movie to see in New Jersey. Father's Day is very special and I have to take my husband out today to make up for the dinner we had on that day. I have not ruled Chima out. It was just a very bad day.

I’m Brazilian so to me the rice and bean were just ok and no farofa it was a letdown. The picanha, fraldinha and the file was very good but we had to ask many times before they served us. No pork Parmesan and the salad bar looked good without any other warm food selections. Service was good nothing bad or exceptional. How can a Brazilian restaurant not have any flan ?
Not sure if we would go back had many other Brazilian steak house that was more complete.

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.

I was a little disappointed being as though it was my daughter’s high school graduation dinner. It was a party of 11 and we were seated all the way in the back and we had to keep asking the waiter to have the meats sent back to our table. Several times we waited over 20 min and still no meat. Our chips were turned to ready also. The men that walked around with the meats served other tables with less ppl, but many of the times they did not come to our table. I did not feel as though We got our $900 worth. Unfortunately I will not be dining at Chimas again for a while. I left unsatisfied, frustrated and many of our guests as well. My waiter was very friendly and he also reassured my table that he would speak with the manager about out our concerns.

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.

It was a great experience to celebrate a birthday. The seafood was a little gummy but everything else was awesome! Our waiter Henry was so delightful!
