Chima Brazilian Steakhouse - Fort Lauderdale Ratings and Reviews
chima not as good second time around
My wife and I came in January for our 10 year anniversary, and everything was amazing. We had the best waitress, and just awesome food and great time. We took our son here this past Friday for his 19th birthday, and the service just was not the same. My wife an I agreed that the service was not as good, and the meats were not as good as the first time. May just have been a bad night, but we had told our Son this was much better than another rodizio we frequent, and he to was not too impressed. We still enjoyed our time, and I'm sure we will be back just hope to have a better experience. Thanks
Loved the atmosphere, the restaurant is great!
The restaurant is very well done and the food and service is great, the variety of meats, salads and appetizers are appreciated. We will most definitely come back as it was worth it! The scenery was truly amazing! Loved the meat selection!

Really good food. One of the best lemonades you try. Lamb was amazing.

Had to request Caesar Dressing which took a while to get but overall the salad bar was very good great choices and fresh tasting always refreshed and kept looking tip top . Drink prices are above average $40 bucks for three Grey Goose vodkas one expects to pay a premium but they were a little light on the alcohol content. We had to request Fillet Minion as it never seemed to come around and it was not the best cut. The meat was a little greasy but plentiful and you never waited long for the next round The only real disappointment was the shrimp over cooked dry and tasteless. A big plus was our server who had a few tables but checked up on us regularly I would of given 5 stars but the wait on the Caesar lost a point.
I was down for business and enjoyed the meal so much I went twice in a span of 5 days. One of the best dining experiences and meals I've had in a long time!

This is an experience everyone should enjoy at least once. We love it here.

i just noticed on that particular night, Friday the 13th, the cuts of meat I got were more on the well done side and chewy, which I don't prefer, so I stuck more with the salad bar. my son prefers more well done so I didn't mention anything, altho I know had i done so the waiters would have bent over backwards to make sure they had a satisfied customer. i was however, greatly satisfied with the amazing salad bar.

Our family looks forward to celebrating special occasions with family and friends in Chima because of its GREAT salad bar and fabulous cuts of meats. It is an elegant place with great ambience inside and outside with modern seating areas, old trees and water features.

Dining at Chima is always a treat and a favorite. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is always inviting.
Perfect for tourists who come in big groups and want a lot of food. Sommelier recommended an excellent red wine.
Chima's has never let us down
Without a doubt the place to go if you want meat :) We live in West Palm and make the trip to go to Chima's. Nothing compares to it, we have tried other Brazilian steak houses but will always go back to Chima
The atmosphere at Chima felt very welcoming/invited. The food And serves were priceless. My son and husband are meat lover and would come again for dinner. Already recommended to couple of friends out of town.. Loved it!!
From the moment we walked in, we felt very welcomed. Beautiful entrance with lit up trees and a nice lounging spot before getting to the main door. The food was great, the gauchos were very attentive and never left you waiting for any type of meat. Salad bar was not as great as their competing restaurants but hey...i go for the meat! We had an amazing server named "Geo". He made sure we had the best experience. He went out of his way to take a picture of us and put it inside a Chima post card. He also made sure we tried every single piece of meat they offered and recommended some great wines as well. Overall, nice experience.

This was a combination Birthday dinner for myself and a friend. Service was excellent, the food and ambiance were exceptional and while the cost was higher than one would find at other places in this style everything was within reason and well worth every dollar. I was raving about my experience at my job 3 days later. I was so struck that I forgot to take pictures of the food before eating!
Always a Pleasure
My husband and I have dined at Chima for years. It just gets better! We absolutely love the food; the side bar is fresh, varied and delicious. The dessert menu, if you even have room, has improved. Arguably, the best key lime pie!
I am a retired doctor living on soical security now. I went from $14,000 per month to $3000 per month. Your restaurant is too expensive for us on social security. Wine at $60 per bottle is way over priced. You should have had much cheaper wine. Martini and Rossi is not even $20 at Publix.

We always look forward to special occasion dining at Chima. Food always great, service excellent and ambiance is good. It's our go to restaurant when special guests come to visit as we know we'll have a great meal and they will be impressed
Amazing time at Chima. My bill was 420 and i didn't even feel because i had such a good time it was worth it. they serve a variety of meats constantly. they need some regular sides but overall amazing.
A Night Out with Friends
Good energy...good friends...good food...makes a happy occasion!
Chima is fantastic!
I have been to many Brazilian-style steakhouses over the years, but Chima has to be the best of the best in my book. The restaurant is gorgeous and sleek, but the star is the food. Best salads and side dishes I've ever seen, as tasty and delicious as they are visually beautiful. And the meats are fantastic, just simply seasoned and perfectly roasted. A wonderful dining experience.
Been to other Brazilian steakhouses around the world. This was surprisingly excellent. Beautiful décor and ambiance, food very well prepared. Service was excellent, mostly Brazilian staff which lent positively to the experience. Enough food for even the hungriest diner.

Great food and service. The only thing I didn't like was the pork ribs.
When you wanted to define food this place will make a difference Great taste, polite and helpful staff, verity of choices You will never regret actually I'm afraid you're going to be addicted to it
Top Notch Service
From the moment you walk through those doors you are greeted with energetic smiles. Everyone is on their "A" game from the hosts, servers, managers and meat carvers. They take pride in fulfilling your every need and assume the needs of the guest before you even ask. Variety is spectacular, salad bar is very fresh and vibrant; Large meat Variety. Rarely do you leave a restaurant feeling amazed throughout the service. Excellent! I would recommend highly!
Great good ;great service!
They had every kind of meat at hand and the drinks and dessert were delicious!
Meat, meat, meat
Great restaurant. Huge meat and fish variety. Salad bar was out of this world. Can't wait to go back!

Excellent service, servers were always close enough to catch your eye, but did not hover. They have a terrific wine list which is available on a tablet so diners can click and read reviews and ratings. We selected a fantastic Syrah, one of the best I have had. The array of meats allowed us to pick and choose and few different items, cooked as desired. Salad bar was very clean and stocked with many items.

Amazing food for sure. Highly suggest this over the competition any day of the week
A Nice Time Was Had by All
We take visiting guests here often as we trust the experience will be outstanding. This week was no disappointment. The hostess was polite and engaging and quickly seated us even though we arrived 15 minutes early. The service was outstanding -- attentive without intruding . Always there for our needs. Another great visit.
A Dinner Date to Remember
I wanted to treat my husband for an amazing dinner, and what an amazing dinner indeed. He just received a great honor, and I wanted him to enjoy the best food served at Chima. He loves the freshly cooked meats served with a smile. I requested for creme brûlée to be served for dessert but I guess they did not have it and they served tiramisu instead, which was as indulging as well.
The restaurant is very clean and well lit, food was delicious and service was well
Stellar as always!
Stellar as always!
Great Easter Dinner
This was our second Easter dining at Chima. It never disappoints. It has the very best salad bar that we have ever had!!
Vere good Easter Brunch, but way overcooked fish
Last time I went there for dinner and it was so much better. I only do the salad and fish This time they overcooked the fish and I was waiting to long for it. It was a busy time, but anyway. I don't know if I will go again.
