Service was okay, kind of felt forgotten about towards the end of our meal. I know the smaller parties are not as appealing as a large group dinner but it would still be nice to get the same attention.

The staff and food were fantastic. They were welcoming and engaging and this made for a comfortable dining experience from the time we arrived at the bar to the time we departed from our table.
The meat was cooked superbly. We could not fault it. We didn’t bother with the salad bar, but it looked nice as we walked past it. Why bother with salad when the meat is as good as this?!
The only negative (which isn’t really much of a negative to be honest) is that the discs they provide to say when you need a ‘pause’ just get ignored and the meat just keeps coming. A couple of times we simply got overwhelmed with options.
Regardless, the experience was great and we have recommended the restaurant to others.

It was a beautiful Saturday evening dinner. I celebrated my birthday and I felt very safe with the procedures and staff informing guest. Food was delicious however the gratuity was already calculated in the bill which I didn’t expect. Nonetheless a great experience as always!

It was a busy night when we went in for a dinner. This place was packed! Tables were fully seated, no social distancing at all. People were at the salad bar without masks too. We had to ask for our meat to three different servers and still had to wait. I’ve been to Chima several times and this was the worst. Food taste was okay as usual but the service wasn’t there!

Chima has previously been the local gold-standard among the Brazilian-styled rodizio grills. It seemed to have a higher quality of cuts, wine selection, and service, and the venue itself was more upscale than the others. Unfortunately, these standards have been going downhill. This was evident during a pre-Covid visit a few months back. But when Open Table recently announced their specials, my family and I decided to visited once again in celebration of two recent birthdays. Other than their common-sense health precautions at the salad bar, there was little positive to write about. Our main waiter was very slow to service us and was not personable at all. The wait for your initial wine order was exceedingly long. We had to flag down the rodizio servers on numerous occasions. He had to be reminded of the birthday celebration, which we noted on the reservation. The attention to detail simply wasn't there. Additionally, the quality of the meat was not up to the standards of a couple of years ago. After a very long wait to again gain the waiters attention, we decided not to order more wine and opted instead for the check (which also took entirely too long to arrive). The restaurant had taken the liberty to add an 18% gratuity even though we were only a party of four. To our astonishment upon returning home, the sales slip shows 18.00% printed on the slip, but the actual math reveals that we were charged 21%!!!

Amazing! The food was amazing, staff was amazing, overall such a great experience. We made a reservation and didn’t have to wait even though the restaurant was full, the buffet included gloves which was great, and the meat was perfectly seasoned. Will definitely go back.

Food is always good and meat servers are excellent.

But I am not sure they need any waiters. They are not sure why they are there attitude. They should just automate the ordering process. I am hoping all tips are sharing among them as well because I would not tip the waiters at all. He took the folder and the sign receipt fell out. He does not even care. May be I should not have picked it up and put back on the table. Just leave it there on the floor.

The air conditioner was broken and no one told us. It took us 4 tries to get ice for our water . The one positive is the gauchos brought the food often and with a smile.

I really liked that there was someone standing at the hot/cold bar making sure everyone used hand sanitizer and got plastic glove to grab food. Everyone working here wore a mask. Lobby area was not crowded. I also felt comfortable with how Valet handled the car, they put a plastic sheet on the car and wore mask and gloves.

I have been a long time customer of Chima’s. Last year we had a birthday party, and found their service was a disaster. This year, we decided to give Chima’s another try during Restaurant Week. We found the service was improved, but not up to the standards one would expect for the price.

We ordered, for an additional charge, the lobster tail. Ten minutes after the tails arrived, the clarified butter was place on the table. We asked several times for the grilled vegetables. The serving staff stopped several times with other meats, and said the vegetables were on their way. When the grilled vegetables arrived, the vegetables were raw.

We also asked for corn. The corn appeared to be grilled, but the butter sauce on the corn was extremely salted.

As for the meats, if you are serviced the first cut of meat, that piece is extremely salty. If you could get an interior slice, the salt is less noticeable.

On the plus side, the wait staff was attentive to our needs. No sooner had we finished a coke then a fresh one was on the table. If the plates filled up with excess fat or bones, the staff offered a fresh plate.

All restaurants have problems due to Covid. I can only hope that once we return to a more normal time, the problems we experienced will disappear.
