    Very difficult to understand the staff with the mask song of what the food was that they were serving we did have to wait when we flipped our cards over for food also we weren’t told what kind of food was going around and after we were full we realize that there was other kinds of food that we didn’t try going around it would be nice to maybe have a list of meat on the table so you know what is walking around the restaurant otherwise food was excellent but a bit pricey for the amount of food we got

    Chima is our favorite restaurant to go to! If we didn’t live over an hour away we’d be there every weekend. Our dinner was amazing and the staff were amazing. Yusef and Bonnie were our primary waitstaff and they did an amazing job. The manager also checked in with us several times. We never felt rushed or like a chore. The entire night was delightful. We will always be back!

    We went to the bar first as per usual drinks were tasteful. Then we stayed for dinner and Gustavo was an amazing server! He has great customer service! The food was good just felt like we didn't get as much as our usual options. The cheese and honey is just amazing it's our favorite! Chima's never disappoints.

    Almost everything was great. My experience with valet parking was not. I was the first customer of the day and had to wait a while for service, but I thought it was a great idea that I can text to get my car when leaving. So I did so during dessert. However it wasn’t until I angrily asked for my car before I got it. At some point I was standing outside waiting. And wouldn’t even be acknowledged. He waited on two people that came after I was already standing outside and was about to do the third until I said something, I will probably park in a garage next time

    Not sure if it is because we went on a Monday night but the selection at the salad bar was limited. The upside is that there was a good variety of meats that came around. The ambiance was average. If I was to go to a similar type of restaurant again I’d probably prefer Fogo de Chau.

    The food was pretty good. I especially like the flavored beef. No shortage on seasonings I appreciate the chef. The salad bar wasn't very appetizing. I didn't see enough vegetables for those of us who like a great salad with dinner. The registration app told me there was a dress code and it absolutely wasn't. People wore shorts, tennis shoes and t-shirts. I felt terribly over dressed.

    Delicious food. There was a bit of inconsistency when asking for the meat temperature, specifically for the picanha, but overall still delicious. I love how they usually ask if there’s anything specific you want to come around. Their grilled cheese with honey is absolutely delicious.

    This is my second time dining with Chima and It definitely will not be my last. All of the meat they serve is very well seasoned and comes out in a timely manner not too slow and not too rushed. Everything on the salad bar was very pleasing super fresh and delicious. The service is always great and the meat chefs really take good care of the customers. Thank you to the entire staff for such a good time ❤️

    I showed up early so I had to wait the service while waiting was somewhat slow. However by the time my reservation was ready it quickly improved. I had forgotten how much food they give you my waitress was very professional and helpful. And for the price you really can not beat it, a perfect dinning experience and good place for a romantic evening with that special someone.
