I visited Chima's for a work event and the food was very dry. I would not recommend to come here pay the expensive prices and receive dry food.

You will want to be fairly hungry in order to try the range of selections at this restaurant. The salad bar is huge, with fresh selections that are constantly being replenished. I recommend grabbing sauces for your meat at the same time you get salad, otherwise, you might not want to get up again after the meat is served. I... More

We've been to Chima a few times and each time it is the same excellent service and selections. The salad bar has a great selection of fresh vegetables, cheeses, fish, and many sauces. The one little kink in the armor is that there is a tiny undertone taste of cooking with open flame gas. Other than this its fun, food... More

I have to say the Picanha (or too sirloin) is out of this world. It literally melts in your mouth. Huge salad bar, but don't eat it so you can have more steak. The little plates they bring to the table like the potatoes and bread are not really anything to write about. The service is great. Bring your appetite... More

My son visited Chima last year during restaurant week, and since then has insisted that I too indulge in this dining experience. I really don't like buffet, but I finally took the invite. I was very impressed from the minute I walked in the door. We made it a Sunday afternoon family meal. As we walked toward our seat, I... More

This was my first visit to Chima, but not my husband's. He kept warning me not to get full from the salad bar, because I wouldn't have room for the meal. The salad bar isn't a typical salad bar, but I wasn't that impressed with it. The flank steak was so good. I had a little steak and chicken. I... More

Had a wonderful birthday dinner, but it would be nice at anytime. Great hot food and variety. Steaks are of great quality and flavor. Go hungry. A piece here, a piece there and you will get full. Lovely staff and atmosphere. Will go back!

Went to this restaurant on a recommendation. I heard great things about it and wanted to try it for myself. You have to be a meat lover. You get to eat all you want of about 16 different types of meat- bacon wrapped chicken, Parmesan chicken, steaks, and lamb. It was a change from the normal. Service was great from... More
