Chima Brazilian Steakhouse - Fort Lauderdale Ratings and Reviews

We went to celebrate a birthday. The service was great and the wine selection was excellent. They have over 3000 bottles of wine! Food was delicious. We were even impressed with the salad bar. If we wanted a specific meat from the menu that we haven't seen walking around, we just asked our server and they immediately came to our table. I just wish it was a little quieter. We happened to sit near a large noisy table. I would go back.

Haven't been in a while and took a friend for Dine Out Lauderdale. Place still as beautiful as ever and the salad bar a definite best ever. The Dine Out Laudale deal provided only some, but not all, of the meats but that was plenty since the salad is unlimited. One of the better deals for Dine Out Lauderdale. Two large parties drove the noise level quite high but it subsided when they left. Still one of the more eye popping, special occasion places in town. Recommended for anyone entertaining out of town guests. It will be a memorable meal.

The staff from the moment you walk in to the moment you leave are their to make your dining great. The servers came around nonstop with the different meats and always wearing a smile. The salad bar was outstanding.

Always a pleasure dinning out at Chimaz. This time I had an amazing waiter Geo who had the eye for everything and was always there before I could even ask. Kind of a mind reader....-).
Food is outstanding as always and the wine list high end. My favorite restaurant and will always be! And the Papaya Cream as dessert is a must....-).

I have been to Chima in the past and was planning my sisters Bachelorette Party and we wanted to do a nice dinner somewhere. I like the lively atmosphere and variety of lovely food (there is something for everyone.) The staff was knowledgeable on the wines and everyone was very satisfied. I would come here again!

Believe it or not - Chima has GREAT Vegetarian Options!!! The salad bar is to die for!! And they offer a reduced price that comes with two choices of seafood if you don't eat meat. I did, however, eat the meat and I was not disappointed. Great meal and we will definitely be going back!

The sides were great but even though they said the had 17 different types of meats we only had 5 kinds on the rotation. We didn't realize we had to ask for the other types. Of the types we tried only 2 were worth trying again

We have been going to Chima since they opened . Sometimes , for long stretches, once per week. For the first time, it felt like a feeding trough. The restaurant was loud, the elegant experience was taken over by people in sweat pants and people who didn't want to wait on servers and were stacking their plates near our table.
There is a cheezy Sommelier who is overbearing and unnecessarily interjects himself into conversations, birthday celebrations, etc...He is just too much!
Maybe it was jus a bad night but it seems one of our favorite restaurants EVER had been taken away from us...
Wait staff was still great - floor management and. Sommelier - too much to take again...

Overall a nice place we went on a rainy night and I wish it wasn't raining as I wanted to enjoy the outdoor seating area and music. I was hoping to hear the music while dining but it was too loud for that. I still enjoyed the food and the restaurant.

We went there as part of Dine Out Ft. Lauderdale and there is a marked difference in the service we got compared to when we dined there in the past with the regular menu. We waited a long time to get the service for meat, the server barely checked on us. We had to call one of the managers to eventually get service. It was not a busy night as it was a Tuesday. Disappointed that they didn't maintain the same service we always got just because we were doing the Dine Out menu.

Left in a dining section with few guests and Had to "flag down" wait staff to request meat. Our original server disappeared...not sure if shift change or moved to another section, or what was going on??
Food was great and salad bar is always top notch. Service is usually superior, so maybe they just had an off night.
Finally, had to wait over 15 minutes for valet to acknowledge us. One of two valets was retrieving cars by himself while the other was too busy discussing a potential job opportunity with another guest.
Hopefully, our next experience will be more pleasurable as we enjoy this establishment.

Extremely disappointing. My son was in town for one night and I know how much he likes Chima. I have always enjoyed eating here in the past. Based on this past Wednesday would not go back. The meat was fatty and tough. The servers not friendly. For the money you are paying, the food should b top notch. I did tell the two hostesses how awful I thought the meat was . She said, thank you for the feedback and a general manager would call. She also said the restaurant was using a new purveyor. Obviously the general manager didn't care since I didn't receive a call. Don't waste your money on this over priced place!

We were never offered the full array of meats and fish that are usually available there. We had to constantly ask for particular items. I am disappointed that they try to put so many starches on the table so the people don't want to eat the meat. Most of the meets were tough. Sorry that it wasn't at all good this time. Would probably never go back

I made surprise reservation for my husband and i's 3 year anniversary. Our first time there... it was amazing, waitress went over above and beyond, we absolutely loved the food and the staff made our anniversary memoriable.
