I had an amazing meal at Chima! The staff was friendly and welcoming upon walking in. The restaurant was full but it still felt quiet and private. The food was tasty and plentiful. I would definitely go again!

Meats were excellent as always. Service was not as good as usual. Our waiter was never around to offer fresh plates or anything else that we needed.

We originally found Chima in Fort Lauderdale and felt in love with the restaurant. We visited the Philadelphia Chima this past weekend and were equally pleased. The Chima Philadelphia is a 2 hour drive for us but completely worth it for us.

My gf and I ate here last night for her birthday dinner. Since I don't eat meat we rarely go to these types of places ($40 for a salad bar is a bit much for me), but I wanted her to enjoy herself.

The food good, but our waiter was awful. He made us wait a full 30 minutes after we were done eats and then ask "so are you done?". I am assuming his man is homophobic cause we were the only couple in his section ignored. We never got offered another drink. We never got offer dessert. When I told him I was a vegetarian he rolled his eyes at me. My gf was so bummed by this dinner that we had to do a second birthday night to try and bounce back.

Went here for our anniversary. The salad bar is fabulous, the gauchos and waiters are very attentive. Some of the meats were overly tough.

Service was excellent.
Some of the meats were tough even that they were medium rare for me and not well done.
The pineapple had too much Cinnamon.
I believe that desert should have been included with the price charged.

Was hoping for more seafood options. It was only limited to salmon.

Visited many times, this last time wasn’t a great experience. Sat in the back room and a lot of the meats didn’t make it back to us. Long intervals between different meats. Other than that the food was tasteful as always.

Excellent; however, if you're not careful, it may be a belly buster.

Chima helped make Valentines Day special for my Wife and me. The evening included valet parking, a photo and a future dinner...all FREE.
The salad bar was an immediate hit with my Wife. High quality, fresh offerings made it difficult to choose and difficult to avoid not getting full before digging into the "meat of the subject"!

Service was bit slow to begin, but staff was responsive and I mean did it come...totally satisfied with our whole experience.

I wasn’t seated until 10:45pm for a 10:00pm. Once seated I was given very poor service. I had to ask other servers for assistance the entire evening.

Food was good for the most part. Just took a while for servers to come offer all of the meats available. A lot of times they would just skip our section. Got the chocolate lava cake w/ coconut for dessert. It was the worst dessert I’ve ever had. Not sure who came up with the ingredients for that dish. Other than that, the food was good. However, I would have been more satisfied just going to a regular steakhouse and getting one steak.

The restaurant was crowded due to Valentine's Day but service was more than adequate. The waiters/waitresses were excellent. Typical churrascuria fare but as always it was very good. My major issue was the valet parking. We waited 20 minutes to be waited on and the traffic on JFK Blvd. was insane. They definitely needed more people servicing their guests.

Food was excellent. Waiter service was great. Ambiance was upbeat. Only 1 downside However bar service was extremely slow. 15-20 mins from time of placing drink order until receiving the drink.

This was our second visit to Chimas. I must say this place exceeded my expectations the second time around. The food was delicious. The waiters were every attentive. I can't enough nice things. Go hungry because they are going to feed you a whole lot. I was ok with the salad bar by itself. Great value

It was my first time going to Chima, and my boyfriend wanted to try it out for his birthday. Chima was the best decision we could've made! We can't stop talking about the delicious food and service. Everyone was so nice (especially Michelle and Ryan)and my boyfriend received a complimentary birthday dessert and picture. We will definitely be returning again!
