Loved the service, the atmosphere but most importantly the food!! I am a person who loves good food and usually find something wrong everywhere I go to eat, for it is hard to please a person who loves to cook and is very good at it!! Nothing bad to say about Chima's. It was such a great experience and I can't wait to go again.

Ell, this was one of the most memorable occasions for my friends and I. They had never had the pleasure of dining at Chima and it great for me to be the one to introduce an pleasant and palatable dining experience to them.

Benjamin and the other member of the team as well as the courteous men serving the meats were more them professional and prompt.

I came from Baltimore, Maryland to Chima and it was all I was told it would be. It has a simplicity of elegance yet comfortable enough to fell the welcome at the door.

The manger on duty was attentive and considerate of all the patrons and that was very important to me.

What I did not ask ids whether or not you give senior discounts. I m 72 years old and the discount would've help with the cost of the $340.00 and $60.00 tip.

Again, thank you for a great dining experience.

We had a great time. Every other visit was associated with an event but this time we just went to enjoy the restaurant. All of our choices were delicious and the filet mignon exceeded expectations. Really enjoyed the time and we will be back soon.

The best Brazilian steakhouse by far. The food keeps coming and the flavors are just right. The Lamb Chops are amazing. The Manager is very nice with much care in making your dining experience even better. I like the fact you can request your favorite meat and they will gladly send it to your table promptly. 👍👍

Our waiter Henry was outstanding!
Was disappointed to no longer have pork ribs (they were delicious) on the menu and the key lime , which is my favorite, was very tart and uneventful.

The gauchos kept giving me huge chunks of burnt ends. O have only seen picahna sliced thin. The meat quality is better than NaBrasa and Fogo De Chao but the service and skill of meat preparation and slicing is lacking. I will tell you that I am of the minority that prefers well done (go figure) but I frequent at least 1 of these 3 places once a month and Chima has fallen off the mark. Madison was helpful but I doublt I'll be back.

We love Brazilian food and have been to all the Brazilian restaurants in the area and China is by far the best. We even took my Italian in-laws there who usually only will eat Italian food and they loved it. China has great service, amazing food, amazing gluten free options (but definitely ask about what is gluten free). It’s delicious and a wonderful place to celebrate - well worth the cost.

I have been to Chima for Mother’s Day for a few years now. Never disappointed. Service is great and the food is even better! Make sure you’re hungry upon arrival.. for the price you better eat a lot. Would recommend to anyone.

I've eaten at Chima before and enjoyed the experience!! I decided to treat myself and my son to Mother's Day dinner May 12, 2019.

I'm surprised I was able to make a reservation because it was so last minute. My 6pm reservation was made at 4pm.

We made it to Chima by 5:30pm with a short wait (Not even 5 maybe 10 minutes) before being shown to our table. Our table was the perfect spot (by a window no less), ample lighting for me to snap a few food pictures.

A waiter promptly arrived and offered us drinks. Two Coca Colas. He also explained how dinner worked to my 12-year-old son. It was his first time experiencing a rodizio style restaurant.

He was a little anxious about the food and was scared he wouldn't like anything that was served. I told him to try a few "No Thank You" bites and go from there. Well ... he loved the experience, which made my dining experience better.

We will definitely return as my son wants to continue to test his palate!! My only wish is that I could have requested more Fried Bananas (I love them!!)
