This is my favorite Brazilian BBQ Restaurant, always such a friendly wait staff. Excellent salad bar and the meats are top quality.

As far as the food. It was delicious. The only reason for less than 5 stars for food was that both chicken options offered were overbooked/dry as was the filet mignon. Everything else was great.

I chose this particular restaurant to celebrate my husband’s 50TH Birthday. My family and I enjoyed our dinner and our server met all our needs. We left with full bellies and smiles. Thanks again!

It was my first time at a Brazilian steakhouse and I must say, my experience was for sure one to be remembered. The staff was very friendly and the overall ambiance was spectacular.

The food and service at Chima Steakhouse were excellent. Our server was very attentive and the different meats kept coming to our table. Their salad bar had great choices. I would definitely go back if I return to Philadelphia.

It took them 28 minutes to seat us even though we had a reservation! Service was terrible and the meat wasn’t rotating with nearly as half of the varieties ! Complained to manager but nothing was done. Chima disappointed in this visit and it looked like they were really understaffed and unprepared for the night

Father’s Day. Food was good. Servicer (Ben) was fantastic. The front desk reception was lacking. She asked me my name and reservation time THREE SEPARATE TIMES. Especially since they called me to confirm the day before and I told them I’m coming. Not sure where the confusion lied.... I think it was because on paper my name looks white and when I showed up - I was the furthest thing from it. She acted as if I stole someone’s reservation. Do better.

We visited Chima for Father's Day, and overall, it was a great experience. This was my first time at the restaurant. The food was great. Service was seamless. My daughter's father even received a card for a free Rodizio on his next visit. That alone made it worth it, but otherwise, it is a bit overpriced.

We (6) had a great time on Father's Day. The salad bar was far more than expected with a wide selection to choose from to suit any taste or dietary needs. The included appetizers were unique and was a great opener to, what everyone comes for, their meats. After turning our discs orange side up, the meats were coming fast and furious. The only downside with our dining experience is they were severely understaffed. Our server was responsible for 6 tables; three of which had a party of 6 or more. This left all diners at each of the six tables waiting and waiting for drink refills, extras, special requests, etc. Other than that, it was a perfect dining experience.

Loved the service, the atmosphere but most importantly the food!! I am a person who loves good food and usually find something wrong everywhere I go to eat, for it is hard to please a person who loves to cook and is very good at it!! Nothing bad to say about Chima's. It was such a great experience and I can't wait to go again.

Ell, this was one of the most memorable occasions for my friends and I. They had never had the pleasure of dining at Chima and it great for me to be the one to introduce an pleasant and palatable dining experience to them.

Benjamin and the other member of the team as well as the courteous men serving the meats were more them professional and prompt.

I came from Baltimore, Maryland to Chima and it was all I was told it would be. It has a simplicity of elegance yet comfortable enough to fell the welcome at the door.

The manger on duty was attentive and considerate of all the patrons and that was very important to me.

What I did not ask ids whether or not you give senior discounts. I m 72 years old and the discount would've help with the cost of the $340.00 and $60.00 tip.

Again, thank you for a great dining experience.
