I’ve been to Chima Ft Laud many times over the last 10 years. I use the dinner for team building and a fun night out for my crew. In the past the Meats were better quality more tender. The servers were friendly

This time the main server was only interested in up selling us to spend more money. The meat servers had zero personality and would not listen there stop and go buttons were ignored by the entire crew.
What use to be my go to restaurant has turned into a typical South Florida overpriced tourist trap.
Very sad !!!! I think they need to re train there staff
I use to say Chima was the best redizio restaurant
In the country. That is no longer the case

Our experience was superb! The staff were all very kind, attentive, and caring. The food was delicious as always. Ambiance was great and we didn’t have to wait too long for anything. I will definitely return.

Felt very rushed with food. Didn’t have the wow factor if similar restaurants that we have dined in London. Not even sure we were offered fifteen meats.

The ‘meat’ servicer were lovely but not our actual waiter. We felt that he just wanted us out. We arrived at 10pm. Usually we would stay two hours for this sort of dining experience but felt needed to be out much quicker.

Salad bar ok but obviously didn’t get to have more than initial serving.

We also had to get clean plates ourselves.

Buffet is great, as are the meats and grilled pineapple. We did not see roasted vegetables at our last dinner, which we typically eat. Also, the salmon entree is not up to par with remainder of your food. Perhaps improving the salmon entree and making the roasted veggies more available would be appreciated by many of your patrons.

The food just never ends. Shrimp, Salmon, Chicken, Lamb, Pork, Beef, Beef, Beef, and more Beef. Beef rib, NY Strip, Filet, jalapeno, garlic, you name it. All kinds of beef prepared different ways on a constant rotation carved tableside. The salad bar is amazing! It's not just salad items. There's hearts of palm, soups, fresh cheeses, fresh bread, and a variety of specialty homemade salads.
Then the perfect ending, dessert. Chocolate lava cake with coconut ganache filling, which is made to order; Chocolate Fudge Cake with Raspberry Sorbet, Key Lime Pie with an amazing berry sauce, cheesecake, Apple Strudel, and more.
The service is impeccable, you want for nothing. Whether you are a local celebrating a special occasion or tourist, don't miss the opportunity to be dined at Chima.

We thought that Chima Brazilian Steakhouse was a wonderful find for us and a great place to celebrate our 25th wedding Anniversary. Loved the trees in the garden in front!

Was a nice dinner, took my boyfriend for his birthday. Read online reviews that they would bring something out for his birthday, such as a small piece of cake or dessert. Nothing. A little surprised by this since it was an expensive dinner and when we go to Capital Grill for roughly the same cost, they bring out a nice dessert plate for birthdays.

EVERY time that we go down to Chima from Jupiter the long drive is worth it. Last Tuesday due to rain on I95 it took us exactly 2 hours from our home to Chima. Once there, it was worth every stop and go moment on the way down.

Both our favorite waiters, VINNY and BRIANA were off that evening but the reception staff suggested we would like DENISE, a relatively new hire from Argentina., and so it was . DENISE is equally as good an outstanding waitress and I made it know to the manager.

The food is always great and the addition of the Tomahawk steak is very good. What a jucy tender meat, mouth watering with a lot of flavor but almost as tender as the filet.

We are going down again this Tuesday the 25th with a good friend who has never been to Chima and celebrating his B day. I am sure he will become a regular, just like his father, who also was introduced by us to the Chima experience .

Cant go wrong at Chima, wether you are a meat lover, salmon or salad bar lover you cant go wrong at Chima

I went for dinner to catch up with my best friend. Vinny was our server, he was amazing. He kept showing up at just the right time. The only thing better than the service was the food. The top sirloin and the jumbo grilled shrimp are out of this world. There is something on the buffet for everyone...the best i have seen in SoFl. I will definitely be back with my family for my Mom's birthday.

Being in the service industry, I always try to understand when it’s a busy day. I wasn’t expecting excellence on Fathers Day but still wasn’t expecting to barely eat. Not sure if they forgot about our table or if it was an added table for a busy day, but they weren’t really stopping by with the meat till we actually complained. Had a “note” on the reservation saying it was my boyfriends birthday but everyone seemed to ignore that as well. Food was ok. Being Brazilian, I’ve had better... expectations weren’t met for a $200 dinner. May try again.

Excellent rodízio! I took my husband here as I have came here few times before. This place is a meat lovers dream come true. Non-stop delivery of various perfectly seasoned steaks, pork, chicken and shrimp....cut right at your table. Great selection of salads and veggies, love the cheesy bread and grilled cinnamon pineapple too. The staff are pleasant and professional. Just disappointed that I have a reservation for 5pm but we were seated 45 minutes later.
