We enjoyed the meal at Chima for our anniversary. The process was a little unclear at first, but we got the hang of it by watching other diners. I loved the salad bar options, especially the roasted eggplant. Salmon was a little bland, but I really loved the filet mignon.

The service was very delayed and slow this is my 4th time there and I’ve never had such bad service took forever for meats and other requests to come out . It was freezing where food was getting cold very fast so that was horrible because now I have cold food and it’s taking long to get replaced hot food . It was my guest first time and I was embarrassed to have that been her experience. I spoke with two managers and I still didn’t feel like me and others seated near me issues was resolved .

Food was mediocre 🥴. First time dining @ Chimas. Heard it was like Fago De Chao. But I shouldn’t have to ask why isn’t a server coming over to our table so we can have more meat 😩 especially wen our tickets was flipped over overall, I won’t be returning 🙃

The food is always great. However, after the first 15 minutes, the meat stopped coming. After speaking to a manager, it came at a snails pace. Sad that our experience was so poor as we were celebrating a birthday.

If you plan on going to Chima go at least 35 minutes early to park your own car you don’t want to use valet 2 cars were stolen because of valet which caused a massive parking inconvenience we didn’t get seated for 35 min due to parking issues

We were celebrating our anniversary. Our table felt very intimate. Yousef explained how everything worked with regards to service beautifully and his team took great care of us, constantly checking to see if we needed anything and sending back servers with the cuts of meat we wanted more of. Overall we had an amazing time and will definitely be back again.

We went to celebrate our 7th anniversary and as always it was amazing. We scheduled at an earlier time and earlier in the week and it was a great choice. It was not super crowded and we never had to chase down a meat selection. The anniversary dessert was a special treat at the end.

I think for the quality of the food the price is obscene. For the $200 plus tab I could have gone to any of the quality steakhouses. Actually I could have gone to most restaurants better high quality for that kind of money. I don't mind spending money, but to be honest it's fair. I won't be returning.

Another great experience for my birthday dinner. I'm glad to see Shrimp have been added to the list of foods offered. My only issue is I like to go and get the one meat option (garlic sirloin)instead of the full rodizio. When I asked for it my waiter said that wasn't one of the one meat choices. I asked him when did it change and he said it was never an option and informed him the last 2 times I been here it was the option I chose. It didnt ruin my night but it I wasn't the happiest about it.

Excellent experience as always. We love the ambience and the food. It was the birthday of my boyfriend and he just wanted it his “Creme Brûlée” but they don’t have at 8pm of a Saturday!!!! So everything good but for the next times they need to be ready for have their common plates.

This was my first time eating at this particular restaurant. We were celebrating my best friend's birthday and I wanted it to be extra special for him. Chima was extra special, the food was excellent, customer service was over and beyond what I expected. Kudos to Chima and their entire staff. I have found a great restaurant to entertain my close friends and out-of-town guests.

Great ambiance and large selection of meats on top of their enormous salad bar. The Gauchos did a great job of spacing out the meats so I wasn’t overwhelmed while making sure there was always something on my plate.
Our server Michelle was amazing and went over the top for us I would highly recommend requesting her for the best experience.

My wife and my friend both had their birthday yesterday. So three of us went to Chima for celebration. Even though the I made the reservation online and the front desk confirmed with me that there are actually two of us having birthdays, we never receive any greetings or treated specially during the meal. I’m not quite sure if it is Chima’s tradition. I am not asking to receive the same cheesecake or bday song singing that we received from Fogo de Chao or other restaurants. But it did make me as the host embarrassed as we received nothing but the table next to us who was celebrating one 60th bday had shining balloons prepared and waiters surrounded them. The food was great but the entire experience was kind of wired..
