we were surprised at the variety at the salad bar. not just lettuce and tomatoes. A great selection of marinated artichokes, heart of palm and seafood salad that compliment the meat coarse well. Be prepared for the onslaught of Gauchos when you flip your card,...More

I had a great time at Chima. My family loved all of the different types of meat. I would give 5 stars if there were an additional fish option for non meat eaters but the salad bar was awesome!

The restaurant is beautiful and the view from the 2 floor is nice. I went to celebrate a friend's birthday and we had a great time. The staff was friendly. The food was ok (meat lacked seasoning)but DEFINITELY not worth $143 for two people.More

Hi Ben! Thank you for joining us to celebrate your friend's birthday! We appreciate your feed back. The meats are cooked and seasoned to order, so you can ask the gauchos (meat waiters) how you prefer your meats - temperature and/or seasoning. We also offer...More
