Chima Steakhouse - Tysons Corner
It was my fiances birthday lunch yesterday with his family from NY, VA and few close friends. Immediately at the door we were greeted with a smile and seated at our table. Our server was Boris. Can I just take a minute and praise him? He was very very attentive but not intrusive. Which I loved. I had paid the check for the table before everyone got there and the check had 18% gratuity added to it. (Which of course we gave way more later) a lot of servers tend not to be attentive or even give any attention to the guests as much as the tables that does not have the gratuity added on their check. But BORIS is not one of those servers. He was 100% there at all times. Drinks came out fast! Refills were done before I even noticed myself that I need one!!! Even all my guests were taking about how great and efficient he was! The guests paid for their own drinks and even that he was fast at. I was a bit more demanding then usual because it was a special day and wanted everything to go well. And he never gave me an attitude or any looks or ill feelings. I will definitely ask for him again. Now we have 2 favorite servers! I don't even have to talk about the food. It's always amazing!!! Never fails!!! The whole team is awesome!!! Can't wait to go back again! Thank you chima Tyson team for making my fiances day a special and a perfect one!!!
Our first time at Chima was amazing and definitely worth it!
The food was amazing as usual. The service was great!
Amazing food & great service
I had an amazing time.....food was superb and the staff was very polite.
Everything was over the top, me and my family had an amazing experience.
Going on Monday night and finding out it was lobster night was a nice surprise. We always enjoy Maria’s service. Thank you
Chima was amazing and our server Maria was outstanding! We also loved the Lobster Mondays and very much regret that it was the last day for this special. All the staff and servers were very accommodating and attentive. Thank you Chima for a great dinner and night!
Best restaurant forever . Lobster tail wes perfect the meat service best
I had to request for lamb chop twice and it took a long time to come to my table. I wish i servers walk around more often. The steak was a little bit salt but everything was great.
Our waiter was Maria and she was beyond amazing! She made sure we got to try all the different cuts of meats that we wanted to try. All the meats and the salad bar was delicious! Definitely coming back soon!
Lots of fun
Eric is Amazing he really made our night special. Very good recommendations on drinks and he gives you a very personal experience.
Thanks so much.
Fantastic salad bar, meat is very good and comes to the table very frequently.
Caipirinha and Papaya Cream dessert are a plus!
Awesome like always!!
Bad service, the food wasn't much better. They kept coming around with cheap steak like sirloin and flank steak. I repeatedly asked they for filet minion and rib eye, but nothing good was served.
Every time that we visit we enjoy the food and the atmosphere! It’s a tad bit expensive but it’s worth it to us!
Good experience and food. Restaurant was a bit too loud, however still enjoyable.
Excellent all around.
Food and service was exemplary! The meats were tasty and grilled to perfection! Salad bar expansive and fresh. I made a reservation a week in advance, in fact it was for the first seating of the evening. The restaurant was possibly at 50% capacity yet they sat my party of 10 right at the kitchen entrance when there were clearly countless other locations available given the size of the dining area. The noise and distraction of the gauchos coming and going was undesirable hence not assigning a full 5 stars.
The minute I sent my car to valet I was treated with the utmost respect and friendliness. The reservation desk had two of the most professional, polite employees, and I waited less than 5 minutes to get a table even though it was busy. The server Maria was phenomenal and attentive. She always made sure our drinks were full, and that we were getting all of the meats that we requested. The gauchos were great, moving around every table and were incredibly friendly and great to all of us as well as our little son. He felt like an actual grown up because they acknowledged him and asked him what he wanted to eat. It was absolutely fantastic. Major recognition to the manager Rodrigo Lafuente who made his way around the whole restaurant making sure that everything was all to the customers’ liking. There are managers that are far and few like Mr. Lafuente. He’s very involved and proactive in the restaurant. It’s so wonderful to see. Amazing experience every single time we go. No matter what part of the restaurant we are seated, we are always treated like we are the only guests.
Great experience. The entire team are great and our guy was Sam which he was just outstanding. Make sure you ask for him
Turned out to be a good visit once we communicated the lack of service that we were receiving initially. There weren't enough servers (meat servers) coming around with the varieties of meats. We kept being offered the same cuts of meats for the first 20 minutes of us sitting at the table.
We lived for 5 years in Brazil and I must say this is as good as any churrasco in Brazil. The food was delicious and plentiful, the service was great. Our group thanks you for a wonderful evening.
I have been there many time , the last time was kind of unpleasant smell
It took forever to get the meat to come to us. We had to flag down our server several times for several different issues. Atmosphere is EXTREMELY causal (think flip flops and sweatshirts).
Very good overall experience as usual.
I don’t like that fact the manager and server assumed that we wouldn’t tip just because my boyfriend and I look young. We both work in the restaurant industry and understand the fact that servers make a living on tips. We probably would have tipped 25% or more but that fact that he add automatic gratuity without even letting us know is offensive. I have never been to a place that did that for a two top or even did it without letting the guest know. I will never return to this place nor recommend this place.
Decided to celebrate our cousin's 21st birthday at Chima's. Our waiter Alex was terrific, the lady from Brazil who was learning English and stationed at the salad bar was very friendly, and of course all of the men who were bringing around the meats/pineapple did a fantastic job!
Many thanks for a wonderful evening!
It was an amazing atmosphere, food and overall experience for our anniversary. I'd highly recommend it for a special event.
I loved Chima Steakhouse until last time I visit.
That day was my wife’s birthday and we had bad memories at that time.
Our server was fine. He did his best.
But the meat servers.
Some meat server was fine but some meet server was not.
They discriminate on us ( We are Asian Americans)
They saw our sign and we contacted eyes
But they avoided us.
We had to wait so long and actually call our server for the meat we wanted.
I never experienced discrimination like this.
Especially high class restaurants like Chima Steakhouse
Decent place to hang out with friends. I am a pescatarian so it was not the best choices for me. It was a nicely decorated restaurant and service was good.
I would only recommend to someone who LOVES meat. My biggest contention with this restaurant is the fact that the GM did not address me directly about the fact that the website makes it appear that desserts are part of the one price all you can eat meal package. The website as the salad bar, rodizio and desserts all on the same line/page and it appears as it's all included.
Phenomenal service always. Very friendly and absolutely delicious food. Restaurant runs like an incredibly well oiled machine, and the amount of meats and seafood for the value is unbelievable. I would give this place 1 million stars if possible
The cuts were very nicely grilled. Definitely try the beef ribs, the flank steak, and the pineapple. A little noisy when the dining room is full, but you can still have a conversation.
Fabulous place with lovely staff
Outstanding. The staff asked what our favorite is and kept bringing us more.
Loved it. Better than Fogo. Great meat quality, excellent guachos and dressings I wanted.
Really enjoyed the service from Wendy when we arrived and Maria throughout dinner service. Celebrating a Birthday
