I visited during a recent trip after getting off from a cruise. We decided to stay because it was my wife's 40th birthday and rather than travel on her birthday stay the extra 2 days in Ft Lauderdale. The hotel recommended Chima. The food was good, the service was good, the atmosphere was good. The only issue I had was... More

Nice place between Las Olas and the beach. You can enjoy great food... The salad bar is a market of salad, cheese,and extras. All the meat you can eat including red, white meat and the best fish. The best service, and the biggest bill in the area

We ended up going to Chima for dinner for our last night in Ft. Lauderdale. So happy we went there. Very cozy place, with a great salad bar and superb staff. Our waitress Celeste was very attentive of us and was very kind. The food is awesome. Highly recommend to any meatlover in Ft. Lauderdale.

Handsome restaurant, excellent wait staff.. The salad bar was amazing, wonderful fresh and interesting dishes. That said we came for the 'meat'.. The ribeye steak, the pork, the filet, the lambchops, the leg of lamb all tasted the same! Fine meat that had much too much salt in it! The sausage was terrific, sweet and tasty. First visit and last..

This was my first experience at eating at a Brazilian steak house, so I had open expectations. The service and presentation was outstanding....really top notch. Additionally, the ambiance of the restaurant is beautiful and pristine. The salad bar has some very unique salads that were really tasty. Let's move on to the meats....you flip over a card if you want... More

From the initial items put on the table as tasters, to the AMAZING 'sides' salad bar (don't be fooled---it had every possible deliciousside you would want, just there for the taking) to every piece of meat we tasted,...

The food was delicious. Unfortunately our waitress had a bad attitude and that put a damper on our dining experience. The rest of the servers were great.

This has become one of our favorites in Ft. Lauderdale. The ambience of the courtyard is breathtaking with the beautiful trees and pleasant atmosphere with comfortable seating for drinks. Inside, your needs are met with pleasant and efficient service. The salad bar is unbelievable. Can't think of anything they left out from beautifully prepared and presented foods. Because I have...
