I have been to Chima in Charlotte a dozen times, I love the place and go whenever I am in Charlotte. It is a high end version of a Brazilian Steakhouse, the salad bar is phenomenal, salad is perhaps not the right term with endless Smoked Salmon, prosciutto, cheese and a full selection of salad components plus about ten pre-made...

I have been to Chima's multiple time with my husband alone and with my kids. Really great service and absolutely really polite servers. All the times that I have been at the restaurant I have never had a complaint. It is expensive but is worth it, go hungry leave happy. I made a mistake going to Brazz Steakhouse for 2017... More

We spent our family night at this great restaurant, as soon as we got there we liked their decor, which is pretty nice.Once seated the waitress quickly explained the menu and the salad bar that is extensive and as diverse as any I have seen. We tried to eat more meat than salad because that´s the best. They offer you... More

We visited on January 29th for birthday celebrations. It was a beautiful windy day in Charlotte, North Carolina. The cold chill coming off the buildings gave us a nice brisk walk to the restaurant. We decided to walk from a nearby parking deck although Chimas did have free valet parking. Chimas had really nice Decor in the restaurant. The fireplace... More

We went with friends during restaurant week and the place was completely full. Although we had reservations there was an acceptable 15 minute wait for a table. Once seated the wait person quickly explained the menu and helped us with a wine selection. The salad bar is extensive and as diverse as any I have seen. The meats were all... More

My wife and I chose Chima for our 6th anniversary date night spot, and it ticked all the boxes of what we were looking for. The location and ambiance in uptown is hard to beat if you want to enjoy a classy overall experience. Our waitstaff was very knowledgeable about our wine and menu questions, and the rodizio was excellent.... More

We were a party of seven that went to this restaurant over the weekend. The salad bar was very diverse but I've had better. Most of the meat offerings were very well done and enjoyable. The attempted appetizers were not impressive. You should not walk out of there hungry but is quite pricey.

Went during restaurant week and it was packed. We ordered the full service instead of restaurant week special because we love this place and knew it would be worth it. The salad bar had lots of different options, drinks were strong and meat was hot and fresh. Sat right outside kitchen and was a little worried but turned out to... More

I have been to Chima in the past and enjoyed it but this visit with friends was not as pleasant. Our waitress was not very friendly. First off, we were only offered spring water or sparkling water and were not informed that water other than tap water costs $7/bottle. If you don't want to pay extra for your water, be... More
