Chima Steakhouse - Fort Lauderdale Ratings and Reviews
The food was superb and the service met expectations. We chose this restaurant for the Broward Restaurant month special of $37 per person and it was not offered so we assumed that it was going to be applied because no menu was presented to us. Our experience was ruined once we received the bill and saw that we were charged full price per person on a table for 10ppl. This is still one of my favorite restaurants but still disappointed that we felt taken advantage of.
When you first walk into the restaurant it's very pretty, lots of beautiful trees and landscaping. Salad bar was gigantic but did not have traditional salad accoutrements. Only one type of lettuce, loaded in Cesar dressing and no other dressings available. Meats not of high quality, lot of fat and grizzle. White rice was only side dish on salad buffet. We were not impressed.
Wonderful dinner at Chima! I don't eat red meat, but my husband does, and it was still worth it. There was salmon and chicken being passed along with the red meat options as well as a multitude of vegetable/salad options on the salad bar. The service is top notch. The drinks are great. Best place to celebrate a special occasion, away from the fray but still on Las Olas and just over the bridge from the beach.
We have been to several Brazilian Steak houses, this was by far the best. The ambiance and the quality of meats were spectacular. The wait staff was on the level of a 5 Star and beyond restaurant. Everyone was attentive, not just our main waiter. Every time I cane back to my seat if someone was near they pulled my chair for me. Our drinks never had a chance to get below half and our plates were constantly being filled by our favorite meats. We were asked several times what our preference was and were soon met. My husband asked to speak to the manager just to compliment his wait staff and the incredible food. I hope to be able to visit again next year. An amazingly wonderful dining experience.
When you pay full fare and have to continually request to get the filet mignon. We expect it to be sent. Last 2 timed there never showed . They send you all kindd if sausages snd chicken but not the filet as thst is what we usually come for. Dissappointed again!
Best Steakhouse in Fort Lauderdale in our opinion. Ambiance is phenomenal, service was extremely professional and quite frankly the best service we have had in a long long time (server was Angie) and the food was amazing. One disappointing thing though. We went to celebrate our 5 year Anniversary ($425 for 2 people because we wanted to celebrate this special occasion) which I put in the notes and for some reason it was never conveyed to the staff because they had no idea until we said something while we were having dessert. So that part was disappointing!!!
Been here a few times and service is always great. However this time the meats were simply not up to old standards. Lots of fat and cuts were simply very average to low quality. Salad bar was excellent as usual.
Not sure if the place is worth spending $130 per person anymore.
We always love our experience at Chima. Today, it seemed a little more scant with the meat options coming out. Our preferences were brought to us upon request, which was okay. But the food was delicious as usual amd the service was good. A good team providing excellent customer service.
I made a reservation round table for 7. Asked for VINNY as our waiter as we have had him many times before. This occasion was our 52 wedding anniversary and of course it is very difficult to have the entire family, as some live in Celebration Fl, another in Williamsburg Va.Only our daughter and family were able to make it this time as they live in Doral Fl. On other special occasions we have been able to round up our three children and their families. Vinny always goes above and beyond the call of duty.
I am sure Chima's has many fine waiters. but Vinny always does a great job so why try another.
We live in Jupiter Fl and at rush hour it is over 90 minutes to drive down, but I can asure you it is worth it. If you are not a meat, chicken, lamb, pork person then go salad bar which is impressive.
They will cook your meat without seasoning if you ask them, a full filet just for us, as my wife cannot have pepper on her food.
Everyone is super friendly; from the General Manager ERIC, down the line to the bus boys. The greeters are super and the bar seems like a lively place to hang out, or outside under the stars for a before dinner drink or a cordial afterwards or just to relax before heading in to your table.
You an not go wrong for dinner at Chima's and ask for VINNY, you will remember me, tell him that Rivera from Puerto Rico sent you.
Great Brazilian steakhouse restaurant. We paid $435.00 for 4 people not including tip. They only provide valet parking which is another $5.00. Based on the pricing valet should be complimentary. Not an every weekend affair has to be only for special occasion.
