Excellent setting and ambiance of nice dining, coupled with kind, attentive "meat chefs" - we loved the Sommelier! What a character and wealth of fun knowledge! A top choice for us! We'll be back there.

We recently went to Chima for my birthday. It was during the week and somewhat quiet in the restaurant which was good for those of us there! Comfortable setting and very big salad bar. The greeters, waitstaff and servers were all very nice. The food was good to very good. My feeling however is that for the average eater and... More

The restaurant is very nice. We had reservations and were seated promptly. The salad bar had some great choices and was a meal all by itself. The gauchos circulated frequently with choices of meat. I ate my fill. A bit pricey but very delicious!

This is the place to experience this type of restaurant. The "salad" bar is and amazing and so much more than salad. I don't know the price, but you can opt for having that alone without the meat option. The selection of meats during our visit was exceptional as well as the preparation. Of the four at our table, there... More

This was the first time I had visited Chima and I absolutely loved the atmosphere, food and service!! Chima offers complimentary valet parking which is a must! The valet staff was excellent in getting cars off the street and very quick for pick up. I made reservation for 7:45pm and we were seating around 7:55pm. The waiter was very friendly... More

Was at chimas in June for a date with my girl. It first took forever before we got someone to attend to us. After we had someone attend to us we had to now sit and wait for the meats to come. Most times we were just there watching as no meat came to our table. Only thing that came... More

We took our Mom out for her birthday and she was pleased with her meal. The meat service is a little slow. I'm not sure if it's because we were sitting at the top of the dining area and they just kept overlooking us or if it was just not coming out of the kitchen fast enough. The service was... More

We are Brazilians and we had a blast here. My husband says meat was great!! I am vegetarian so salad bar was excellent and I asked for black beans with no pork and I got it!! It was delicious! Caipirinhas are perfect!! It is kind of pricy but worth any penny!! Staff was super friendly and helpful.

The food was great, including the salad bar. The meat was a little salty, but good. The grilled swordfish with passion fruit sause was terrific! The serving staff were very friendly.
