I’ve dined at Chima countless times but this by far was the worst service I’ve experienced. It was fathers day and there was not enough wait staff to accommodate the crowd. I requested a beverage refill that I never received. The family style sides were only replenished after multiple request. I was totally disappointed in the lack of service and attention from the servers. The gauchos were accommodating and made sure to bring requested items but everyone else was horrible. Won’t be returning for a while.

Father's day for my dad was amazing, he loved every cut of meat he received and instantly fell in love with the salad bar. He cannot wait to come back. As always we had a great experience with our service. Our waiters and meat servers were very professional and went out of there way to make sure we got our favorites quickly. Top notch service with an elegant and chic atmosphere, I love it. See you guys for restaurant week!

Ask for Demetri, best waiter ever! Makes you forget you are paying $5 for a 0.75 can of soda, or $65 for a dinner when you can't eat that much food. Nice atmosphere, nice servers, decent salad bar options and Clean restaurant. Tip: Be very specific to the team when you start about how & what you want and you will get it. P.S ask for Demetri

When you're in the mood for meat, it's hard to go wrong with a steakhouse, particularly a Brazilian steakhouse.

We came here for a casual dinner on Friday night and enjoyed our meal, and while it certainly was very good (the top sirloin was phenomenal and lamb quite good as well) it wasn't the quality I would expect. For our party we paid 145.00 for two people no alcohol and frankly it was a bit overpriced for the variety and service we received. Our table was often overlooked for options and we only saw a handful of the meats on the menu, enough so we had to specifically ask our server to have meat brought out to us, additionally the salad bar was not best. Service was not particularly bad but nowhere near where it should be. Overall it was a decent overpriced meal, but I've enjoyed other Brazilian steakhouse much more both from a meal and service perspective.

If I had known this going in perhaps I would have been prepared to be more assertive, but as far as I'm concerned I'd rather be dined on at a restaurant of this supposed nature than tell them exactly what I want and remind them to wait on me.

I'd maybe go back if it was convenient, but I'm not making a point to visit again.

I went to Chima because I wanted to compare it to Fogo De Chao .. Unfortunately it was not better. The servers were very nice and attentive, but other than that it was a waste of overall funds. I don’t know if the salad bar changes daily, but I found the salad bar lacking for those who like traditional non leafy salads. The salmon , and sausage were a huge disappointment as they were both cooked till dry. I was looking forward to the chicken wrapped in bacon but that was unedible. I do realize it was a very busy day ( mother’s day), but now Chima is memorable for all the wrong reasons.

We went for mother's day and also to celebrate my mom's birthday which so happened to be on Mother's Day this year. The crowd was more than the usual (which is expected on a holiday), however the service remained excellent. The servers and waiters were pleasant and attentive. The food was excellent, the ambiance was fab. And to our pleasant surprise all mothers' rec'd a courtesy dinner card for the next visit. I thought that was so thoughtful of Chima's to give mom's a card for the next visit. I've never been to a restaurant on a special occasion (one that compares to Chima) and given a courtesy dinner pass for the next visit. Another great perk is the complimentary valet parking. I wanted to go to the city to enjoy dinner, but was also factoring parking and how discouraging it can be. But Chima's complimentary valet parking sealed the deal. I'm so glad we came to Chima's. My family enjoyed.
