Chima Brazilian Steakhouse - Fort Lauderdale Ratings and Reviews
I love Chima! Everything is always amazing, but I was not pleased with the service this time. I always order some special things and this time my waitress said that it was not possible to do it for me. I wanted the chicken thighs and chopsticks only with salt. Also, It took a long time to come some of the meats.
We had a wonderful meal with attentive service. The noise level was perfect for us. Food was outstanding! Especially was impressed with gorgeous salad bar presentation. Not your typical salads. Gorgonzola mousse was something I never had eaten before, what a treat!!!!
Really enjoyed going here. First time diner for a birthday celebration. Food was excellent, buffet bar was phenomenal and the rodizio meats were great tasting and fresh. The service was remarkable staff were very attentive and accommodating, that made it extra special. We had a fun time and will go back .
It's very crowded on the weekend. Everyone is moving at a very fast pace and it's easy to run into someone. If possible, go during the week. The salads are pretty good and they have a lot of cheese. All meat was very tasty but the fish was dry. I didn't care for the creme caramel (flan). It was lacking in richness. The service is excellent. They don't miss a beat.
We have never been to this (kind of) restaurant and were positively surprised. Everything met and exceeded our groups (party of 8) expectations. We had a memorable evening and enjoyed the tasty meat and the buffet very much. The service was very good - towards the end the gauchos did not come to our table anymore, but the waiter for our table helped. The air conditioning was quite cool (dress warm or bring an extra sweater) and the noise level is quiet high. But we would definitely come back any time we would be in Fort Lauderdale area again.
very surprised at the wine offering , better than a lot of high end Steak Houses. Fair pricing as well. How can the service be very good at a buffet but they pulled it off. paying attention to the two children in our group (8). The table was ready when we arrived 7:00pm. An enjoyable evening for all.
This is one of the most aesthetically pleasing restaurants in the area with its outdoor courtyard patio or the classy inside dinning rooms or cozy bar area. Chima is not just for meat lovers, some of the best items are on the buffet. You will not be disappointed no matter what your occasion is.
The meat, as well as the salad bar were outstanding. Service was very good as well. The restaurant vibe is energetic and fun, not good for a quiet meal. I went with my husband to celebrate our anniversary. I think it would be a great place to go with a group for a festive meal.
Celebrated a birthday and invited friends. Food was supurb but service was not up to your usual standard. Servers were Fiona and gio. Waited an unusually long time for them to return to table to see if we wanted anything. After dinner drink was requested to be served with dessert. Desert served at least 25 min before drink arrived. Valet shut off auto lights and switched setting to manual. Did not tell me and lights were left on all night.
This place is hands down the best Brazilian Rodizio in South Florida. 16 different cuts of meat, salmon and swordfish on the menu as well and a massive salad bar, but don't fill up on the salad bar because in addition to that they also bring you a whole assortment of sides to the table like mashed potato, fried banana (Not plantains which is nice), cheese bread.
The food, ambiance, value, everything is excellent and I will always come back to Chima before any other place trying to knock it off.
It was the 1st time for my wife & I. referred by a few friends of mine at work & I thought well neither of us have been so why not. My wife & I are not used to that kind of atmosphere but I tell you what we were soooo moves by it all the vibe was classy,elegant, comfortable ,romantic, beautiful setting, the service is outstanding & the food is just WOW AMAZING!!! funny i didn't even get to the main part of the dinner & was already texting my buddies that they NEED to bring their wives out to this place lol & here I am Monday at work telling everyone how amazing the experience was & like I said my wife & I are not used to upscale places such as this but all in all we simply LOVED IT!!
All I can say is "WOW!!!"
The service was fantastic. Someone was there every step of the way to ensure a fantastic dining experience.
The food was outstanding!!!
Everything was cooked perfectly, served quickly, and absolutely delicious.
Thanks for a great evening!!!
Salad bar is amazing, as are all the meats brought to the table and sliced right in front of you. I also had the swordfish and salmon - both really good, especially with the sauces they are served with.
Our waiter, Lucas, was especially attentive - we were there to celebrate my daughter's birthday. Her dessert was on the house, and he took a really nice family picture that we were able to take with us.
