Valet parking is practically a necessity in this area, and they keep the rate reasonable at $5. Valet staff was polite and efficient. We walked over to a window in the garden that looks into the kitchen where you can see men preparing skewers of meat and hundreds of skewers cooking on a rotisserie. Yum. We had made a reservation...

Chima has incrediable meat collection and all of them are really delicious... They have also good cold bar sellection. If you are "meat person" like me, you have to try Chima. Also the restaurant has a good ambiance & design.

This was a wonderful food selection. They have selections of meats that are brought to your table. I cannot eat pork and they had a decent selection to choose. The wine selection was very in depth. They carried exclusive wine choices too.

First of all: Awsome food and superb service all the way! The way they serve the meat is slightly different then the ordinary resturant. The waiters comes to you with the meat. If you dont want what the server has to offer you can just say no and wait for the next waiter to come. The place is and open... More

We just had a very nice Thanksgiving dinner here today. The restaurant was very busy as we expected but the food and service were all pretty good. In particular, the valet service was very speedy even with the many people asking for their cars at the same time. Given the holiday,turkey plus the trimmings (gravy, stuffing, sweet potato, green beans...)... More

We enjoyed the food at Chima very much. The lamb chops they come around with were my favorite. As a Brazilian restaurant they have a wide range of meats and salads and you get to eat all.

Has been several years since I've been here, and the latest trip out was with 12 work friends. For a 7 pm seating, I was surprised how smooth we were all seated and provided with drinks/wine. The Ridizio meat selections came pretty fast, with some side (mashed potatoes). Probably around 12-15 different meat styles, you'll no doubt find a couple... More

Title says it all. On the night we went they closed at 9pm and we arrived a little after 8:15. They do not kick you out at 9, but as delicious as the food was I only wish we arrived sooner so we could take our time, sit, let the food go down and eat again. Service was great, the... More
