The overall experience was wonderful along with great food and service. It was a celebration of 2 birthdays and a recent wedding. The only problem I had was that I reserved our table a while ago and mentioned both my husband and I had birthdays and were going to use the discount code. I again repeated it to the hostess when we arrived who said yes, I see your discount codes right here. Yet, when I received the bill? There was no discount and I was told by the server that we needed to do that prior to coming. Once I pointed out that we DID set this up ahead of time, he had the discounts applied BUT? added gratuity to our 5 people table. I actually would have left more than 18%, but since it seemed as if this was done because I insisted on the birthday comps? I did not feel the need to add to that tip.

It was our anniversary and my mother in law called to pick up the tap as a surprise for us. They never made us aware of that. When she called the next day, management said that we were 1.30 hr late and that they canceled the reservation because of it. We were there on time and they just failed to follow the instructions. Disappointing!

I always enjoy visiting Chima. The only thing is when seated in the back, the gauchos don't always make their way back there unless someone sends for them. But overall, the food is great, the service is A +, the ambience is so relaxing and chill. I'll definitely be back.

While on vacation, after doing my research, I decided to make reservation here for my boyfriend’s birthday. The best decision! The food was absolutely delicious, high end quality all around, and they do not skim you on the selections or portions- from lobster tail, filet mignon, ribeye, etc. I could not keep up.. The service was top notch, very professional. Extremely well executed. Well worth the money... Wish they would open one in NYC.

Started receiving meats then elapsed at least 10 minutes without anything being offered. At one point I advised our waiter and still nothing. I had to raise my hand to call attention to the lead waiter. Finally meats started coming again except the skirt steak (fraudinha) was never offered.

We were very disappointed with our meats .
The salad bar was great, but the meat service was rushed, and the selection was not what we expected.
We had been there before, and the meat selection was much better.
For such an expensive meal, our expectations to have a better meat selection was not met.
We thought that Chima was better than Fogo de Chao, but not so.

Every time I go to Chima Steakhouse at Fort Lauderdale location I enjoy not only great food, but the service, the ambiance and the outdoor area with live music. Great place to celebrate with family or just a friend or business gathering.

As soon as I got there and checked in with the hostess she was rude. And even ruder when our table was ready and we had ordered a bottle of wine outside while we waited. Once we got inside and sat down it was annoying trying to get a specific meat back at my table again. It was my fathers birthday and I told hostess that and also had it on the reservation there was No mention whatsoever that whole night. Very unhappy.

Food was great. This was our first time so we weren’t sure what to expect. We dressed up a bit since the website said business casual. I was surprised to see so many people in shorts dining there. Overall awesome but come hungry & try to pace yourself.

Excellent salad bar and meat selection - truly Brazilian "rodizio" like we have had in Brazil years ago. Service was also very attentive. The restaurant could have decorations that absorb part of the noise so one can hear the conversations on the table better, but all in all fantastic.

We traveled from Atl to celebrated my Wife's birthday and are glad we ate at your restaurant. She enjoyed the experience and appreciated the service, food, and ambience! We have dined in the Chima in North Carolina but it did not even come close to our dining experience at your location. We planned to dine here whenever we're in the area.

Thanks for a joyous birthday experience enjoyed by my Wife on her very special day!

We where there for our anniversary. I made the reservation including the note for the occasion. We didn’t receive any compliments. They didn’t ask if we where celebrating something special. Besides that, food was great and service too. Little pricey but the place worth it. Fried polenta and the filet wrapped in bacon is a must!

The food ,atmosphere and waiter was great! Overall I not happy that my daughter Birthday cake that I brought in got ruined by the manager. I brought in a 2tier cake to celebrate for my daughter 20th Birthday. The manager put the cake in kitchen. Later on when the waiter brought out the cake, the cake was melting and falling apart. The cake was specially made I paid $170for it. My daughter was sad and distraught. We couldn’t sing happy birthday.

This restaurant is very expensive. That’s ok for all you can eat, perfectly cooked protein. However when they don’t come by the except a few times, no more than 3 - when your disk clearly says you’d like more and they close the kitchen... without apology, ... we won’t be going back. Our reservation was 8 pm - not like we sat down near closing time. It’s too bad. We’ve been there multiple times - it is where my fiancé and I had our first date 2 years ago - but the last two were very disappointing for this reason.
