Chima is amazing! We've been a few times and are planning the next visit. I'm a CIA grad & my hubby is a chef, so believe me when I say we are tough critics. The ambiance is nice: lively, kinda busy, white tablecloth service (including the crumbing of tables) with attentive waitstaff.
Make sure to come hungry. You'll have so many delicious options that you won't even have room in your belly to try them all. Someone mentioned in an earlier review that the salad bar is to "fill you up on cheap stuff before the expensive meat comes out"... not true! 1st of all, the meat is not put on hold by anyone but you. Simply turn the card over and you'll have a line of servers waiting to offer you some sort of protein. If you want a specific type or cut of meat, just ask. The servers wear mics and ear pieces, within seconds a gentleman scurried over with the swordfish we requested.
The variety is pretty extensive and most items are not found on a typical salad bar. The salad bar is displayed nicely: fresh mozz, carpaccio, asparagus, cheese display etc. Rice & hot veggies are also available at the buffet table. Mixed drinks are priced high, but stong and well made.
The servers are always very attentive, never an empty glass of water. Not a single complaint from us. Chima is pricey, but it is by far our first pick for special occasion dining. Want to wow a client or out of town guests? This is the place to do it.
Last time we dined at Chima, we requested separate checks. The server accidently charged our cards the wrong amounts. When he entered the items a 2nd time he added the amounts wrong. Our cards were charged twice, which put holds on our bank accounts for the incorrect amounts twice. Before we had any idea what had occured: the manager came to our table & apologized, explained that he understood the funds on hold would be a huge inconvenience, then comped the ENTIRE four person table with a $250 tab. Seriously, what amazing customer service!
