We saw the server when we sat down for drinks and next time I saw her when we asked for dessert menu. I couldn’t get a refill during my dinner. We ordered coffees waited 30mins and no coffee but she brought the check. When I asked for the coffee we ordered 30 mins ago she was telling ok let me add the coffees to check. So waited for the coffee another 15mins!! I come here all the time but my last 2-3 visits was the same with these issues!!
Overall, experience was great. The ambiance was comfortable and staff are friendly.
But, I am a little disappointed, on my reservation note, I noted that it was my husbabd’s birthday and requested for a cake with candle for him but nothing came!
My experience at Chima was nothing but amazing, from the beginning to the end. My mom took me for my birthday, and everyone was so attentive, caring and happy. I cant wait to return to Chima and let all my friends know about this wonderful restaurant!
A great experience! The service was great second to only the food. While there we had two waiters tending to our table so we wanted for nothing! The food was amazing and was always coming. If you don’t flip the card they have at each table the food will pile up... but it’s so good! The pineapple especially was breath takingly good as well. Great for a date, or special occasion. But for the price definitely not a casual dinner spot.
The food was great. Servers were ok. The hostess not so great. Didnt have a good attitude. Not very welcoming. Since it was our first time she sat us and said nothing. Had to wait over 10 min before someone actually approached our table. Once someone finally came over, different servers attended us.
Excellent food, excellent service, excellent energy, and most importantly: Nothing but good vibes! Food is very flavourful and fresh! Trust me, you will not be disappointed! :)
We had a great time with new and old friends. The food and wine were excellent as was the service. I highly recommend Chima for any occasion.
Excellent, AS ALWAYS. Looking forward to my next visit :)
I had been invited to Chima for my birthday dinner by a Brazilian friend and was amazed at the ambiance, selection of the cold buffet, the wonderful soup and other hot sides. But the best part were the gauchos coming around with a different selection of delectable meats cut right in front of you; each selection cut to your preference and the amounts given. I wanted my grandchildren to experience this wonderful culinary delight and they had a wonderful time. We will certainly be back again.
Quick service, pleasant experience, delicious food.
Nice, fun experience! The good was great! The only issue was the rude valet workers but other than that we had a great time 🤗
The food is fantastic no doubt about it but it was hit or miss on the service. We probably easily went 10 minutes without someone stopping by our table and we had six people all with coins up for more food. Not one that came by the whole night had filet mignon too which I thought was odd. If I’m gonna drop $100 per person I want sick service. Just didn’t get it that night.
Third time to CHIMA and love it more each time! Food is so good with so many options. Meat is so tender and highest quality. Would definitely recommend to all. You have to go at least once. Pricey but worth it 100%
Food was expensive but really good. Lots of variety. Wait staff was super helpful and very friendly.
Great ambiance, I'm vegan so the salad bar at Texas De Brazil is better but all the meet eaters liked this place more!
meat sweat! meat sweat! meat sweat! meat sweat! meat sweat!
Amazing dinner and extremely accommodating staff
We went to Chima to celebrate both my and my youngest son's birthday. Rather than a celebration, we were treated in a way that I consider to be both bad customer service and bad business. We are regular clients and I am on their email mailing list. It is expensive, but they have good meats and we were satisfied in the past.
Chima had a pre-Xmas promotion where purchasing a $200 gift card got us two $25 dinner cards. We ordered a bottle of wine and mostly enjoyed our meal. The staff tried to get me to purchase more expensive wines and pushed us to get expensive deserts, but I mostly ignored that and did not let it bother me until the time came to pay. When I gave the two dinner cards and the gift card to the waiter, he told me that they would not honor the dinner cards on a weekend, something that was not stated on Chima's website nor shared with me in emails I had exchanged with Chima's marketing staff. To the restaurant's credit, when I asked for the manager, they honored the dinner cards. They automatically charged me an 18% tip, stating that is the policy for people paying with dinner cards and a gift card. That is not a policy stated on their website, but since it is less than the tip I would have left, I did not object.
Instead of going to Chima, having a good time and leaving with a good feeling, I left feeling that either the corporation or the individual restaurant was trying to take advantage of me. What is the point of having a Holiday promotion to get us to purchase gift cards if the restaurant will not honor the dinner cards or make us jump through hoops to use them? It is one thing to say that we can not use the dinner cards during restaurant week or in combination with another special; it is another thing to block off weekends without making that perfectly clear at the time of purchase.
I wrote to the member of Chima's marketing staff whom I communicated with prior to purchasing the cards and still have not received a response.
Always wonderful. I order the salmon which is excellent and because I adore the salad buffet, but I'm not a fan of beef. My husband has a great time feasting on the beef.
Overall I would highly recommend this place; there's a diverse selection of savory cuts and the salad bar is the perfect complement. It's simply some of the best barbeque I've ever had!
The service was a bit uneven - their servers bring the meats around on rotation, and I feel some of the offerings were spaced too far out; i.e. I had to specifically ask for lamb after about 40 minutes of wading through multiple offers of sirloin, chicken, etc.
All things considered it was a great experience - perfect for a birthday or 'treat yourself' weekend!
Over all we enjoyed the food and the service!!
Food was great. Drink service was poor. Just left a lot to be desired for its price point.
We were well taken care of by the hostess, waitstaff and everyone who came to check on us during our dining experience. The choice of meats and the sides were delicious. So grateful for a very special anniversary experience (including the cake on the house!). Will definitely be making our way back in the future.
The best service and food quality in the DMV. Been going for about 10 years. This place has no competition.
I enjoy the uniqueness of this restaurant. Great for special occasions.
Chima at Tyson’s has amazing service. The people there are extremely nice and helpful. They continued throughout the dinner to make sure we were happy and had everything we needed
the food was great. and the service was excellent starting from the complimentary valet to the waiters.
Took a long time to get seated and the food was ok. Not sure the value at $ 70 a person is there.
Amazing food and ambiance but very overpriced. Even the wine glasses/ bottle way to much. Love the service ( Eduardo) was very attentive and took care of our table . Lady at the front desk a bit rude but it’s ok. Definitely will return. Thank you
We have been to Chima many times and as always, the food was excellent. We especially love the oversized salad/food bar and the meat is very good. This was the first time we actually felt rushed. We usually have a leisurely meal enjoying the variety of food. This time, our wait staff kept coming over to see if they could get us specific cuts of meat instead of letting us enjoy looking at what the different gauchos had to offer. The service was so good that we felt like they wanted to get rid of us instead of letting us savor the experience.
Salad bar Great, Salmon overcooked and no seasoning. We requested 3 times, never changed. Unattentative wait staff for tea refills.No candle for birthday dessert.
Horrible service, the waiters did not come to check on us. They didn’t come to get the dirty plates. The meat servers did not come to our table. We gotten full on other thing at the salad bar that we gotten for ourselves. It’s a waste of money and our time. We have been going there many times, each time we go; it’s gotten worst. I didn’t want to write any reviews but I had it. What’s a huge disappointment!!! :(
The wait staff were very accommodating. However, once the meat started coming out , it was hard to track down our waiter. Many people at our table had never been so I had to basically fill them in. I had to let them know that they can go to the salad bar and explain to them that there are different sauces at the end of the salad bar for them to get and dip their meat in. This should’ve been explained to them by our waiter. The salad bar doesn’t have a wide variety of options. The beef rib was super tender and delicious!
My husband and I had our first Chima experience this past weekend. We had a great time and the food was delicious. The salad bar was amazing! We had reservations and they were ready as soon as we got there. The only thing I was bummed about was not getting to try all of the meat selections on the menu. It seemed like they kept bringing around the same meat, though it was delicious. We will go back, for sure.
Great time! Had a party of 14 to celebrate my birthday and it was awesome.
We were a bit late for our reservation, which was to celebrate my birthday. We only needed to wait a few minutes to be seated, but the hostess first took us to a table that had someone else’s soft drink already there and only one chair, though there were two of us.
A very competent server quickly moved us to the correct table, oriented us on how the restaurant operates, and took our drink order.
The salad bar is really great with grilled asparagus, seafood salad, hearts of palm, gourmet cheeses, and many other delicious dishes. Our favorite was probably the Gorgonzola mousse.
Delicious grilled meats came by our table regularly as expected, but we did not see any lamb until we asked for it specifically.
After we had finished our meal, we were presented with a tiramisu for two with a candle in it for my birthday. Our server also took our picture and soon presented us with a printed copy in a nice birthday card. Unfortunately, I forgot the picture and card, but when I inquired about t the next day, they printed me another one. Great customer service. I plan to visit again when I have something to celebrate.
The only downside was that the restaurant was pretty loud when we arrived. By the time we left t was less crowded and therefore quieter.
We had a great time at this restaurant-food, service was great! It was our first time there. My daughter said she was in “food heaven.” Thanks for making this a wonderful dining experience for us.
Great service ans customer service, but the the meat medium well not full available. The extras overprice.
Food was awesome but the service was what made the the experience real nice! The staff there is great.
