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

The caipirinhas are perfect here. The meat they serve is so wonderfully delicious. Try to take very little from the salad bar ( it will be hard because there are so many delicious items on there) and try not to eat their bread, so you will have room for the MEAT. This place has an esquisite courtyard with bar and... More

$200 2 adults 1 child For the price I am very glad I didn't order the cheap meat. Edible but not worth price I strongly believe a steak cooked at home on the grill is better. The process of slicing meat then returning to heat again made meats tough. Chickens were dry. The cost is way too high. Has been... More

Celebrated a very special birthday for my husband. Was able to get our reservation on the date/time we desired. Walking into the entrance of Chima is magical with the Banyan trees completely lit with small white lights with a water feature on one wall and a fire feature on the other wall. We had an awesome team taking care of... More

As with most Brazilian steakhouses, they try to fill you up with their decadent salad bar. If you can escape with a small salad to save room for the meat, you would be well advised. There was not a single cut brought around that wasnt good but the filet and the lamb chop made the visit worth the price!
