Restaurant didn’t offer courtesy dIsposal mask, valet service not billable to your bill and some of the meat selections where stuff. Overall service was good. Staff was pleasant and waiter was nice. Will visit again for happy hour in the future.

I know the cost of everything is much higher but, $14 a glass of wine and per person charge was really high
$392 bill made the event much less appreciated

We went here Mother’s Day weekend and the food & service was great! My two kids were with us (4yr & 7yr) and the noise level wasn’t too loud but loud enough that their giggles didn’t disturb other tables.

Always a great dining experience here. We live on the same block, so it has always been a go to for excellent food! Only advice, as with most places that can get busy like this, is to request your bill a little before you finish your last serving if you aren't getting dessert.

p.s. Bring back tomahawk Tuesdays! ;-)

A great option no matter the occasion. Private time with the lady of your life, party time with the boys, how bout a promotion? Chima's got you covered with great food, great service, and at a price that won't break the bank.

Chimas is definitely not what it used to be. Their appetizers (you don’t need a food critic to tell you that they don’t have the best options). The lamb was my favorite option (well cooked and well seasoned). Disappointed with their salad bar options. The grilled pineapple and the Apple strudel was probably the best part of my meal.

The meat had AMAZING flavor, however the market table was quite disappointing. Not may options at all. The mashed potatoes came out like water as if it were a cream of sorts no substance at all. Other than the meat the food was not what I was expecting compared to other Brazilian steakhouses. I will prob not return and go to where I know I will get my moneys worth.

It was definitely different from other restaurants I have been. You don’t order food, the come around with different types of meat and you pick what you want. There is also a salad bar where you choose what you like. The food was great and I recommend going
