    I just to start off by saying the service by our waitress was great, the atmosphere was cool, the food however lacked and it was very loud by where we were sitting by the party next to us. I think I would have enjoyed the street food outside and saved my $200.

    Quality of the Chima experience has gone down since 2018. First off, we weren't asked if everyone at our table wanted the full Rodizio, and we weren't given an alternative option. It was about halfway through our salad plates that we were offered any grilled meats. The side dishes usually brought to the table - potatoes, polenta, etc., didn't come out until 3/4 through our meal. All in all, for $67 a person it was totally underwhelming. Would no longer recommend.

    I came their a lot for the past years , prices went up again for the 100 times which it seems to be that we every time we go their is a price increase . food was the slandered but the guys who serves the meat were not coming out and we had to request food almost 5 times and our server were very nice and trying her best but she was serving multicable tables and off course some by the end of the restaurant and some in the beginning .

    The exterior and lobby area of the restaurant is beautifully decorated. (Modern, yet Earthy) The food on the buffet was not good, with the exception of the bread. Some of the meat was seasoned well and tasted good, however, some of the meat tasted bland. Not consistent - The first serving of garlic steak was excellent, the second serving tasted weird. The food was OVERPRICED. The drinks were OVERPRICED and contained very little alcohol. My father-in-law and husband got sick immediately after eating at Chima.

    Good food, didnt get to try all the different meat, same few kept coming by. Waitress was wonderful. Kind of sketchy people hanging out in front of the door. It was much noisier than I expected a restaurant like that to be. We were hoping for a quiet romantic dinner...it was not that kind of atmosphere

    This was my 2nd visit. The first time food was more consistent. The waiter was ok just let us run out of drinks an took a while to get a refill. We didn’t get a variety of food most was the same for instance a lot of steak. 1st visit was awesome. Ik it was Mother’s Day an it was busier than my 1st visit.

    Make sure you're strapped heading into uptown. It's dangerous out there. In regards to Chima, thankfully we were able to use our gift cards on a made up "holiday", Mother's Day, otherwise it would have caused a major meltdown. The staff was great, welcoming and attentive. The food was limited for restrictive diets, therefore, $127 for two with water was ridiculous. I was hoping for a different clientele since it was "fancy" but a kid running his parents, loudly and obnoxiously needed to be taken to the bathroom. Unfortunately, uptown has been turned into a circus and we gave it one last shot. I miss old Charlotte. It is not the place I grew up.

    I will always recommend coming here. I love the food, especially the lamb chops and leg of lamb. The prime rib too. The salmon is always moist. I especially love the salad bar and the many types that they serve. The white sangria is also really good. I have never had a bad experience when I come here.

    I came to Chima Restaurant because a co-worker recommended it. So, I set everything to celebrate 🍾 my 15th Anniversary with my wife. The experience was amazing. We were warmly welcomed at the front desk and once we confirmed everything we went to the second floor to invite my gorgeous wife to a cocktail 🍸 which she loved. The bartender was kind enough to figure out her drink and it turned out exquisite. When they sat us at our table they took into consideration all my requests for the evening. Our waitress made it extra special. The manager passed by our table a couple of times and even wished us a Happy Anniversary. The food was amazing. Everything was perfectly cooks.... and if it wasn't, they would go back to the kitchen and prep it just right per your request. It was such a special evening. To top it all off, at the end we were surprised at our table with a mouth-watering to die for cheesecake with a piece of chocolate on top that read Happy Anniversary. I am definitely going to celebrate different events here. We will be back and next time with even more people. Keep doing what your doing. Can't wait to return to have my 🍍 pineapple caramelized with cinnamon sugar 🍍.

    IF you are looking for a classy, quite, affordable place to have a nice dinner with a loved one DO NOT go here!!!! It was like a circus in there!!! Loud is an understatement!!! Literally every min someone is coming up trying to serve you more meat. Half of the meat served is chucks of fat that are not edible!!! It’s impossible to talk with anyone at your table due to the noise and interruptions. We thought this place was upscale….. nope. I knew the place was expensive but damn. 168 dollars for 2???? With only one martini??? Anything goes dress code….. flip flops, t-shirts, butts and boobs hanging out, it doesn’t matter, come on in!! It’s like going to a buffet style restaurant on a Sunday after church!! Chaos!!! Does not need to be made out on the website as classy or upscale. We are still in shock of our entire experience!!!

    Dinner was absolutely amazing! The endive salad was delicious! The meats were so moist, tender and plentiful, the fried banana felt like dessert and the buffet had every side you could want. We tried everything and could barely get up from our table lol. Our server Trey was very knowledgeable about the drink pairing and seemed to truly enjoy his work. Thank you for making my husbands birthday one to remember!

    We have been to chimas numerous of times and this was by far our worse experience here. We sat on the second level, right by the kitchen which caused servers/chefs to walk pass our table. We never did get served shrimp, some meats we only was offered once.

    On Saturday evening, myself and 5 other friends attended Chima to celebrate a birthday, 4 of those individuals dined there for the first time. We were all very pleased with the food and the experience, however I was very disappointed to learn that the vegetable soup had been removed from the salad bar and replaced with a very very disappointing green pea mint soup. As a pescatarian, Chima has a amazing competitive advantage because I’m able to go and still enjoy the restaurant since shrimp and salmon is a part of the menu and I can opt to do the salad bar + seafood. Along with this, I always look forward to having a few bowls of vegetable soup and French bread. I was told by the staff that I have not been the only person who has voiced their opinion on this matter regarding the change in the soup, but l hope that on behalf of the many customers who enjoy the dining experience and all that Chima has to offer that this review would be taken into considered to reevaluate the decision to bring back the vegetable soup.
