Very nice without being pretensious like some places can be. Wonderful food and very attentive service. Spent about $160 for two with a few drinks and dessert and it was certainly worth it. I've spent more for less at other fine restaurants.

My sisters talked so great about this place I had to give it a try. My husband and I love Brazilian and we travel so we have tried different restaurants all over but this one was a huge disappointment! The hostess girls weren't very friendly but she did seat us quickly. Then we waited and waited some more, finally a lady came by and sat 3 dishes on the table and didn't say a word just walked away! Still no waiter! We sat for almost another 5 minutes before the waiter showed up and said hello but then he walked off again without even taking our drink order. He came back about 3 minutes later his name was Tim he wasn't very friendly but we weren't suprised at this point. We went to the bar to make our plates and they had different types of lettuce but no toppings for a salad, the bread they had on the bar was cold and hard, they didn't have much to choose from on the bar either, no cooked pineapple no pasta, no kind of potatoes. Finally we where both looking forward to the meet, they brought things by really fast but all the steaks where bright pink and we prefer med well so that was another turn off! We finished eating kinda fast because we weren't happy with anything, we had to wait about another 15 minutes to get the bill, 118.00$ for 2 people, that's just horribly ridiculous! We will never go back there again!

On November 23rd, my wife and I attended our reservation at Chimas, Brazilian steakhouse. We were delighted with this being out first upscale/ fine dining experience together. The side dishes were cooked to perfection, the water service was a step above, salad bar was much more than a salad bar (hint: get the smoked salmon, you will not regret it.) The meats provided by the gauchos was again perfection on a spit. The service provided by the wait staff, the manager (who checked on us as much as our waiter and waitress, yes we had one of each) and gauchos was far beyond anything we have experienced in dining. Traditional Brazilian desserts were more than melt in your mouth. Thanks Chima,you have won us over.

I've been to Chima before and loved it. However, my husband and I decided to have a date night there a couple of weeks ago. We made reservations for Saturday night at 8pm. We arrived right before 8, and were told that there would be a 20 minute wait, even though we had a reservation. We waited 25 minutes, giving them the benefit of the doubt, and then were told it would be 10 more minutes. We decided it wasn't worth our time and took our business elsewhere. The worst part is that the hostesses were just rude. They never apologized that there was a wait, and couldn't seem to find seat for us even though we saw at least 3 empty tables. They also gave my husband an attitude when he said we were leaving. What's the point of having a reservation system if you aren't going to use it? I'm so disappointed, because I liked it the first time. I highly doubt Chima will ever be getting our business again. To the owners: How about hiring people to work the front desk who are actually nice, and who don't treat your customers like they're just an inconvenience?

Great salad bar, great service. A little disappointed in that we only got offered 6 meats. Did get an anniversary tiramisu, however, did not care for the automatic tip they added to a two person table. You can register online for their club and get a $20 coupon. I would go back, but would have some issues paying another $130 for two folks
