Staff was attentive without being overdone. I’m a vegetarian and the server brought me steamed vegetables. Salad bar was amazing!

The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. We had a toddler in our party and the staff was very warm and attentive toward her. She had a great time it was a wonderful experience for our entire party.

Went to Chima for a birthday dinner, and the service was lacking quite a bit. Our cards were green and waiters did come to our table as often as they did to others. Our server was not refilling our water as often as she should have. When requesting for more food from our server she said ok, but no one would come. Quite disappointed in the service. Experience at Fogo was much better than it was Chima

Chima’s Brazilian steakhouse is a must-try at least once in your life, unless you don’t like meat. It’s a fun night to have various cuts brought to the table, and to take a break, as the spirit moves you. We choose the Saturday nearest Valentines Day for our last visit, and everything from the service, to the ambiance, to the valet was busy busy busy. The salad bar is amazing as well, although you have to excercise control lest you fill up too fast.

Serving style was unique, but the rotation needs to be more systematic. We were served items once then had to request for another round on most of the meats we liked most. Beautiful restaurant & decor.

For as expensive of a place this is, they really need more servers bringing out meat. We had to wait a long time just for a few slices of steak. Fabulous food but service could use improvement for the high price you pay.

Everything from the food, atmosphere, decor, service was Extraordinary. My only concern was the drinks. I had two mixed cocktails that tasted more like diet kookaid. But I love coming here. 😃😃😃

Took forever for non bacon added meat to come around to us. When it finally did they all came at once so we didn’t get to fully enjoy the experience

The service was terrible! There was only basically raw meat! Everyone doesn’t eat raw meat we like it well done.....and with flavor. The mashed potatoes were like soup! Forgo de Chao has a better meat selection and doesn’t take 30 minutes to bring back what you want. We paid $200 for 2 salads and 2 Ginger ales at Chima! I will NEVER EAT HERE AGAIN!

The food and beverages were delicious. Our only problem was that our reservation was at 8PM and we did not get seated until 8:45PM. It is undertaandle because it was Valentine’s Day, but 45 minutes was still a little bit ridiculous. The service was a bit slow at first but other than that our experience was great!

Dinner was amazing. The food was out of this world. The service was a little hectic and longer waits for the check but it was Valentine’s day so that is to be expected. Overall I loved it and maybe a lot more time for activities after
