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

The place is somewhat non-descript at the valet stand in the front, but the courtyard is very pleasing. A mixture of fountains and flames greets you as you walk back to the interior entrance of Chima, passing some outdoor seating. Just inside the door to your right is a bar area, that didn't seem busy, which looked very nice. Two... More

Don't be fooled by the unassuming street presence. Chima is an absolute must if you are visiting Fort Lauderdale. The salad bar is vast with lots of the expected and unexpected... you'll be tempted, but try not to fill up on it... you'll need room for all the meat, cooked to perfection, that you can eat. Definitely try the Caipirinhas... More

Restaurants of this kind have kind of popped everywhere in this area, perhaps due to the increase in Brazilian population. However, a lot of these restaurants serve very low quality beef. Not Chima. You really can taste the quality of the meat and everything else in the salad bar and the other side dishes they bring to your table. No... More

Group of four were treated and entertained by Larry and Lucio recently. Found the food and drinks very good; however, very pricey. Atmosphere appeared a little noisy.

If you really like Brazilian style steak houses you'll like this place. I've been to others with a bit more of a lively atmosphere but the meats are delicious and tender and juicy. I was worried for the first 15 min because no one came around with the meat but once we told our server it didn't stop. The salad... More
