Everything was great, the servers constantly stopped by our table with a wide selection of different cuts of meat. They also constantly made sure to ask if we wanted anything specific and brought it out (ribeye) when I asked for it. Would recommend to anyone, whether your a lover of meat or not. There salad bar is good too!

Wonderful. My husband loves the meats. I adore the "salad" buffet and choose the fish rather than meat. This is my favorite restaurant and savor it on special occasions.

Enjoyed the occasion. The salad bar was excellent and the lamb chops were delicious. The sirloin, however, was only okay. We would go back but when the restaurant is serving the full rodicio menu.

Chima is a Brazilian steakhouse i.e. a salad bar with roving servers carrying meat on skewers. I will comment on both separately.

a) Service: Good, friendly and attentive waiters, willing to help
b) Salad bar: large selection of salad-ish dishes including vegetables, cheeses, ceviche, cold cuts, and some grilled vegetables. But you would have a hard time to create a 'salad' out of the assortment, though as a pile-up or accompaniments they worked well.
c) Meat Courses: overcooked was the single common theme that stood out. The meats were either hard or dry. Not bad by any means, but not worthy of the reputation.
d) Dessert: Middling to bad; even the caramel flan was improperly executed with a graininess that I wouldn't expect from a south American establishment
e) Ambiance: Just a very large dining room. If you are looking to wow a date, don't bother. Business dinner - serves fine
f) Bar: Tender and servers don't even know the names of the scotches (what I asked for)

Summary: If you are in Tyson's and don't have anywhere else to go, and can spare the 90$ per head, go here

Went here for a birthday dinner. Food was delicious. When the meal was over we asked for a cup of coffee and a dessert. 20 minutes later we're served a half empty cold (not even warm!) cup of coffee and no dessert. Brought the cup of coffee to the waiters attention and he asked if that's what we were served, looking a little shocked. He then runs off to fix it with no explaination, no apology, no chance for us to even cancel the order because we're ready to go. Ten more minutes go by with no chance to flag anyone and they bring out the desserts and coffee at this point we explain that we're ready to go and no longer want any of it, even though we were here to celebrate a birthday, but we had finished eating 45 min beforehand and we're ready to leave. We ask to speak to a manager, she offers a pretty crummy apology and then takes like $30 of the bill of $270, so I guess there's that...

Definitely won't be back for a special occasion.

Pros:
Chima is great for the meat eaters in your crowd but highly recommend the salad bar - lots of choices even for those who aren't big meat eaters. You won't go hungry here!
Cons:
Overall price should include dessert- charging an additional $12 for a dessert is ridiculous and nothing really special about them at all- chocolate lava cake was dry, passion fruit mousse was more like the consistency of baby food, key lime pie was bland. No one at my table of eight people finished any of the desserts- skip them, not worth the price!

I had heard about this place for years but had never gone because I live in DC which is full of great restaurants including another Brazilian chain restaurant. I thoroughly enjoyed Chima but wasn't impressed with the salmon; it was watery and not flavorful. I would definitely recommend Chima.

We were sat next to family (in the front closest to the bar) that had several kids. After the family got through eating, their kids were literally running everywhere. The youngest was yelling at a high pitched voice as her brothers chased her. I came to celebrate a quiet birthday dinner with my wife.. we both hurried to finish our meal to leave.. with a splitting headache at that. Please consider placing families with small/young children in the back area or place quiet people back there but atleast separate somehow. We've been to Chimas many times before, to say the least, this was the most disappointing.

What an amazing experience!
Chima is a real fine dining Brazilian steakhouse. Our incomplete party was greeted by very polite hostesses and directed to the bar for gathering. The bartenders were prompt to help whoever needed a drink. Once we were all there, we moved to the dining room. The servers were knowledgeable and attentive. The salad bar was extensive and incredibly flavorful, as were the side dishes brought to the table and the meats. Best meat quality of any steakhouse around! Managers came by to check on us constantly and so did the meat servers. The desserts were the icing on the cake, they were all amazing. No better place to impress your friends and family!

A very good friend and former work colleague was in town (from Arizona) for her official retirement after a 32-year career with her current employer. Since I had not seen her in three years (just after my retirement from the same organization), I wanted to take her to a special place to celebrate the occasion (as well as her birthday, which happened to be that same day). I knew, from the recommendation of a trusted source, that Chima was an excellent restaurant that would fit my friend's cuisine preferences perfectly.

A trusted source recommended Chima, a restaurant I had not previously visited, and it was "spot-on" with no disappointments whatsoever. My friend thoroughly enjoyed dinner, including the wonderful salad bar. The service was superb throughout, in every aspect. While the price is not inexpensive, the value is superb. Anyone who is contemplating an upcoming special occasion should give serious consideration to Chima. There will be NO disappointments and the memories will linger in your mind as much as the taste of the fantastic cuts of meat will linger on your palette.

The nicest dining room among our local Brazilian-style steakhouses, but you likely will see many who are underdressed. Salad bar reflects imagination (i.e. Gorgonzola Mousse). Fine selection of grilled meats, and even on a busy night, service was very good. High marks for sides (polenta sticks, grilled banana, whipped potatoes) and cocktails. If rodizio is your thing, you should try this one.

At $55 per person, we were dissapointed in overall quality and experience. The ambiance is very poor, waiters do not check in on drinks, or pour wine. For that price, food should be special and it simply wasn't. For those looking for a special dining experience and who don't spend this kind of money regularly, we won't be back.

The overall experience left more to be desired. While it is certainly a fun and unique experience with the waiters bringing over and cutting the meat for you, the food itself certainly is not worth the $50.00+. The quality and taste of the meats themselves hover around the average mark. The seasoning is very typical and there's not much difference between medium rare and well done - it's all semi-juicy bordering dry. If you look carefully at the cuts of the meat, they're not very thick, either. Good steaks are typically at least 1 inch in thickness, but all of the meats offered at Chima were more around the 0.5 inch thickness. You are better off going to places like Capital Grille, Ruth Chris, or Prime Rib if good meats is what you're looking for.

The salad bar is a nice touch, though. The various salads are tasty and the Chima house dressing is very good. There's a nice assortment of cheeses and salmon. However, the salad bar is fairly big with lots of choices, meaning you will get full rather quickly and not get your money's worth in meat consumption.

What ruined my experience was the service. One waiter became upset with me because I rejected the meats he was offering. If I don't want the lamb, I don't want the lamb.

Chima is a fun and unique experience, but the quality of the food and service makes the restaurant overhyped, especially considering the price. For that amount, I certainly expect more.
