Chima Brazilian Steakhouse - Fort Lauderdale Ratings and Reviews

Very mixed experience. Beautiful restaurant and most of the food was very good. Regrettably when the fish was brought out it was cold and tasted funny. I asked the waiter if the manager could come over to speak to me because at the caliber Chima represents itself ($80-100 person), serving a cold, poor tasting dish is inexcusable. After several requests, the manager did come over 15-20 minutes later and played it off that the waiter did not tell him, then it was the chef had left early to that he was too busy to come speak with me. When I asked the manager if this was standard how the management addresses customers' concerns, he said he had 250 people to look after. It was very clear, that he did not want to speak with me, looked to blame his staff and hoped I would just go away. The manager even shared his view that no one else raised this concern and may be it was just me. Needless to say, it was extremely poor that a restaurant of Chima's caliber would be so brash in the way they treat their customers. For myself, I will never go back to Chima. There are other Brazilian steak restaurants in Ft Lauderdale equally as good with better customer service in my opinion.

Vinny was an excellent host! The Leon, and all of them were spectacular. However I did notice afterwards no fish passed around, was it served?
Also the valet gentleman never opened my passenger door and parked my car here I had to hop a puddle to get in, so my boyfriend ended up having to move the car a bit forward.

Found "Chima" many years ago on a visit to Ft Lauderdale,Florida and have enjoyed it every time I am in the area. I have tried other Brazilian steakhouses…nothing compares with "Chima"! It is a magical experience beginning from entering through their outside garden bar. Their salad bar really should be called the "Amazing Bar" for it offers the most wonderful delicacies such as carpaccio and the best smoked salmon ever! We met the executive chef Eric on our last visit, fun to talk with him. I cannot wait for my next visit.

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!
