This was our first experience with a Brazilian steak house, and it was GREAT! We started with the salad bar with was an awesome precursor to the meat fest that became dinner. The first cut I had was the top sirloin. It was artfully cooked with a crispy exterior and juicey, meat wonderful deliciousness inside. I would like to commend... More

This is a great restaurant with a nice athmosphere, the concept works very well, the buffet is outstanding, while the meat varies a bit in quality - the sommerlier gave great assistance.

Wonderful! Everything was perfect from valet parking to closing the bill. The food is superb, but the highlight of the night was the friendly staff. Meats were grilled to perfection, right seasonings, side dishes were truly Brazilians, and salad bar had all we could expect from a high end churrascaria. I intend to go eat there everytime I'm in the... More

I love a good meatfest & Chima delivered the goods! A typical Brazilian Steakhouse experience with very good quality food throughout. The staff were all very friendly. My 4th or 5th time dining here with consistent results over the years.

We went here for our anniversary dinner. Needless to say, I believe I was in a meat delirium at the end of the night! Tender perfectly seasoned meats, delicious salmon and a tremendous salad bar! Chima, Chima!!!!

Overall a pretty pleasant experience. Good meats ( not amazing though), very good sidedishes ( i think thats what many brazilian restaurants usually are lacking of). The service wasnt impeccable though, we had to wait a long time for our orders and one of the drinks we had ordered never actually got to us. In their defense, it was a... More

Went here for a birthday dinner. The fine print is very grey here. They suck you in and over charge for everything. Went with 4 adults and 2 children one under 3. They charged us $52 for the 11 year old child. They said are you celebrating a birthday? We said yes. They said then you get a complimentary photo... More

We were pleased with dinner here but we are regulars at Fogo de Chao & this really doesn't hold a candle to it. However- location is very nice, interior is fresh and updated and staff is friendly. Food quality is nice and presentation is always fun.

A group of six of us went for my husbands birthday and we were not disappointed! I think I'm still full. When arriving, I was concerned because the front of the building is quite bland, but as you walk through the courtyard, you are brought to another world. The salad bar is good, but don't fill up on that, because... More
