Went during restaurant week and although I understand that we're getting a discount, we were definitely treated like second-hand customers. The food was coming fast then not at all. It seemed almost like they wanted us to gouge ourselves and then leave quickly so they can seat the next table.
We’ve dined here before and decided to come again for restaurant week... won’t do that again. We had a reservation for 9:45pm and we were not sat until 10:20pm and it was in a small corner, next to a window with a terrible breeze coming in on an already very cold night.
The salad bar always has many options, definitely something for everyone but nothing special. We chose to upgrade our meat selection to make sure we got the pineapple which is AMAZING but no one goes to a steakhouse for fruit and this was the best thing I tasted! The guy only walked by us once and the second time we had to summon our server to have him come. Not only that, we kept being offered chicken and pork loin most of the night not beef options ie. Filet, Prime Rib etc. I can eat chicken at home so this really annoyed us and we PAID EXTRA. The sides that were included mash potatoes, dried banana, bread and something else was all okay but lacked any flavor along with most of the meat we had.
There was a huge birthday of about 25 people who sat about 30 feet or so from us and I could not believe how loud and rambunctious they were. They were so loud we had a very hard time hearing our server. Many people come here for a nice dinner and atmosphere and this was by far what we got. After spending $200 for mediocre food and tipping our servers appropriately because none of this was their fault we would have had a much better experience somewhere else and spent half of the money.
The best thing was the service ! The servers were very friendly, attentive and well knowledge. We had three servers who assisted us all night and they was nice.
The food, as usual, is excellent at Chima. Between the salad bar and rodizio selection there is something for everyone. The only thing my party of 7 did not enjoy was having to ask their servers multiple times for a refill on foods. We asked 3 servers for the same thing and it was only given on the third try. Service was okay, everything else excellent. Would recommend.
We made a reservation and we were moved around several times. The hostess was new as she said and she had no clue of what was going on. Bad experience for the first time during restaurant week.
Great as usual!!
So delicious everything! Quick seating service, quick with water and sides. One complaint was that the good stuff wasn’t coming around to us like filet mignon or salmon. Had to ask the waiter to have them bring it around. Overall, highly recommend anyone to eat here!
I LOVE this restaurant. The customer service and food are EXCELLENT! I come here often because it's more than worth it. Anthony who works at the bar is AMAZING. He's super friendly and can make any drink of your choice. Henry is AMAZING as well. He has been our server on many occasions and never disappointed. e remembers my family and treats us well. Bottom line if you can make to Chima's please do!
Dining at Chima was great! The service was wonderful & so was the food. My boyfriend & I had a great time. We’re definitely coming back.
Phenomenal service, food was perfect! Will be back again!!!
Great atmosphere fantastic food and outstanding service.
Food was excellent and the wait staff was attentive
First time at a Brazilian steak restaurant and now me and my fiancé are hooked.😍
Great food and service
Not our best experience. The meat seemed a little dry. Parmesan Pork was inedible to me. Didn't really see much of our server. It was Restaurant Week so that could explain it. Salad bar was great as always.
Amazing and amazing services and and and and and amazing
I loved my surprise and manager Raj was very nice and pleasant to talk too. He made sure he greeted everyone
Awesome time and experience
It seems as though when they brought around the better cuts of steak the portions got so much smaller ....and the rounds less frequent .....that was obvious and disappointing
I have been to Chima a few times the food is good . I have noticed that this was the second time we were put in the back of the room only because we were two people and that’s where the tables are for two. But the men coming around with the meats etc. seem to stay in the middle of the room or they run out and have to go in the back for more and really don’t get to the back . Servers kept asking if they can send someone over . Everyone is very friendly and professional.
The food was amazing. But the very best part was the service. Especially our server, Cassandra. She was quick, knowledgeable, did her sales without being aggressive. Absolutely charming and delightful. I would visit again just based on her hospitality.
All food was fresh and flavorful. The gauchos were quick and attentive.
Overall, an outstanding experience.
We try to make it to Chima once a month, and every time we do it is not a disappointment. The service is always great, as well as the food. Have never had to sit around and wait for our table as they manage their reservations very well. The entire staff is great in every way. We usually take my now 6yr old who has been dining with us there since she was an infant, they are and always have been very accommodating to her and always
After enjoying a delicious meal for restaurant week one of the mangers came around asking about the food and service, which both were well executed. He asked about having desert which was not included in the restaurant week menu as we pointed out to him , however we were indeed satisfied from the wonderful meal . He quickly begged to differ and offered us desert of our choice on him. Now that’s a come back line that will have us making a reservation in the near future. Also enjoyed great cocktails like the authentic mojito, no syrupy mix here. Real lime, real mint and of course real rum .
Everything was delicious and the service was excellent.
This is my second time here. The first time I was not impressed but decided to go back just to give them s shot. I mean it restaurant week. It would only cost 35$. Well it was the same...I found the meat to be very greasy. To the point that I was cutting fat off of my pieces. I think I shall stick with the other Brazilian steakhouse in the area.
My mom and I also enjoy going to Chima during restaurant week and we were not disappointed. We had and excellent experience. The food was delicious, both the offering on the salad bar and the selections of meat. Our servers were very attentive and answered any question we had; they also steered the cuts of meats we liked most toward our table and kept us refreshed with hot side dishes. We do hope that Chima brings back the barbecue ribs to the menu; those were delicious and we were a bit disappointed that they we no longer available. Overall, we had an excellent time.
Service was great!
By far some of the most delicious meats without the ridiculous price tag!
Outstanding service, staff was super attentive, overall great evening celebrating my boyfriends birthday
Brought my family there for their first time to celebrate my sisters birthday- two guests had never even heard of a Brazilian steakhouse. It was excellent like the two previous times I had been (so it’s consistent). The servers are at your beck and call and even asked us which meats we were waiting for so they could send them over. The dessert was delicious and they even gave my sister a complimentary piece of cake.
Good time great service
Angie at Chima was able to accommodate a party of sixteen for my boyfriend's birthday. It was fun, it was delicious, and the service is impeccable. One hundred percent will be visiting again.
I was disappointed because it wasn't a variety of meats like I received on prior visits and I had to beg for some Salmon which I received once.
Came back for a Birthday dinner with family. Had gteat experience with excellent food. Would definitely recommend.
My overall experience was wonderful!
Good experience as usual, awesome bartender!
Went with friends who have been to other Brazilian steak houses and they said Chima tops them ALL.
Everything was great. Food was amazing very rich & filling. The decor was great looked very chic and clean! Love it!
We had a wonderful experience. An early dinner to celebrate my friend's birthday. The service was excellent, the food was delicious and the ambiance was fabulous. I would highly recommend China to friends and family for any occasion.
Service has definitely improved - it was very good before, but now it's fabulous. Food is always a treat, and I like the new rodizio items.
