The service was exceptional with many attentive friendly staff. Sommelier was knowledgeable and helpful. It has an extensive wine cellar. There are many good quality choices for the salad bar. The many types of meat presented were all fresh, hot and tasty. It was overall an amazing experience well worth the cost. We'll definitely return to this restaurant next time... More

Very, Very good food, we exaggerated on the salad bar of course, the meats came flowing fast, we enjoyed the lamb, the chicken, the ribeye, which came by often and had seconds and thirds. We were stuffed by the end. During dessert I noticed Ribs, Veggies, Tenderloin wrapped in bacon, Flank steak...., none of which ever make it to our... More

Chima is a wonderful restaurant. Is a "speto corrido" system but in this case they add there own secret ingredient: service. The quality of the service was wonderful and the food extraordinary. It's a little expensive and tooooooo noisy. It's a wonderful choice.

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
