Management usually will walk around just to check up on you :) Now lets talk about the food. Omg the meat was tender and to... More

This restaurant is located at Las Olas Boulevard in beautiful Fort Lauderdale, my home town. A huge centennial tree at the entrance (lit at night) is a good sign that what happens indoors is good. Actually great! Good service, nice decor, the place is ample and attractive during daylight or night time. The salad bar is worth the visit. So... More

Definitely an upscale version of Texas De Brazil. The meat selection was superb. Be careful as you can easily fill up on the smorgasbord atvthe salad bar. Even a vegetarian can eat at this restaurant and feel very satisfied.

Got a seat for two around 9:30. My husband had been there in the previous week and loved it. He said I would love the salad bar, and yes he was right. It was amazing. We started with a delicious cocktail, agave margarita and Long Island iced tea. The meal started with nice hot rolls and a ground turkey pate... More

Some great quality meats with a good selection. Friendly staff which added to the experience. Take your time as you soon fill up..!!! Good cocktails at the bar but a bit expensive.

Went here last night for dinner. Place is very nice both inside and out. Atmosphere was typical for a Brazilian style steakhouse. A little loud due to the place being very busy but overall nice. Service was friendly and enjoyable. Food was very good. Go easy on the salad bar if you plan on eating your fill of all the... More

We went here for a bachelorette party dinner. Beautiful place inside and outside. Lights on trees were stunning. Doormen were funny and helped take group photos then took their own selfies on our phone. We were sat right away. We began with salad bar but that's a mistake. So big! Which I never thought would be a bad thing. I... More

Chima is a definite when in South Florida. The first thing you see at night when you walk up to the restaurant are huge trees with tiny white lights and huge vases serving as waterfalls. There was a band playing outdoors, and there is a bar with a good amount of private sitting areas. If it had been cooler, we... More

My husband grew up in Brazil and he is a HUGE meat man. We have been to churrascurrias all over the country but none were as good as Chima. The picanha was really TO DIE FOR! It was melt in your mouth and I am legit drooling as I am writing this review. The cheese bread and the salad bar... More
