Chima Steakhouse - Tysons Corner
The pineapple itself is worth the visit. Don't sleep on that pineapple.
It may take a while to get the cuts you want, but if you take your time and enjoy the meal, eventually they will come around. Just make sure to pace yourself so you are not too full when they finally do arrive.
Overall, the food was great. Service was lacking in attentiveness, almost had to fill my own glass with water. Second issue, the evening was Veteran's Day, but one get one free. If I paid the regular price I could tip what I felt was appropriate. When they adjusted the bill for Veteran's Day, the 'tip' was added automatically and I was not allowed to tip what I felt was fair. Bottom line, because I was charged the Veteran's Day special, they automatically add a 'tip' to recoup part of the discount and DO NOT allow the customer to choose the overall tip. So, I doubt we will ever visit Chima again based on this practice. Felt deceptive based on the advertisement and actions.
It's been a year since I've been here and coming back I couldn't believe how much it has changed. The food was well done when I had asked for medium or med rare. The beef ribs are usually tender and it was more of the tough side. The waiter barely came to our table and tried to sell hard on the wine and I had told her that I only wanted glass. The ladies bathroom was disgusting. The toilet was nearly broken and some were just clogged. It smelled bad and I'm surprised how dirty it was. I went for our 4 year anniversary and let's just say it was a sad and disappointing celebration. I will not go back and will stay with Texas-de-Brazil which is a lot closer to me.
It was great
Amazing food. I am still daydreaming and craving more. Service from Boris was phenomenal and he made my girls bday even better!
This is a family friendly place. I usually give them a 5-star, except this time. I think they need to train their servers better. We had a total of 4 people and got charged for 5 people because they charged us "2" kid all-you-can-eat, instead of 1. I told the server that the bill was incorrect because it said "2" KIDS all you can eat. The server insisted the bill was correct, but he would see if he can make the bill showed "1" KIDS all you can eat if it made me happier. A few min later, he came back and apologized that the bill was indeed incorrect. By correcting the "2" kids to 1 kid, the amount was reduced to the correct amount.
Chima - please train your server better!
Amazzzingggg such great service and food! Will come back very often
I like to come here every now and then. However, the meat is very dry and tastes like rubber when it gets a little cold, my recommendation is to eat piece by piece with white rice and add lemon and salt to the meat
Our Sister Circle of senior adults decided on your restaurant for its convenience to the concert we planned to attend on that evening. One of the ladies in our group was celebrating her birthday and was thoroughly satisfied with our choice for dining. Our lead waiter was EDWIN and he provided excellent service. It was our first time, but will not be the last.
The service during Sunday brunch is amazing. The waiters and servers were attentive and quickly and readily addressed any needs.
Food was great. I ate a ton. Wife loved it. All you can eat for days. Server did not rush us at all and even seemed to encourage us to take our time. Food was cooked to perfection. I felt like the food quality was very high. possibly just good chef's but either way it was great. Only con is the price is pretty high but if you can afford it or for special occasions this place is great!
We had previously been here before and decided to bring some guests here to celebrate a birthday. We had to continually asked to be served beef. And by continuously I mean ten or twelve times. We were there almost 2 hours and only had beef twice. Gauchos kept coming around with chicken, sausage, pineapple, lamb and pork. We asked our waiter to be served beef and we rarely saw anyone come our way. They served all the tables around us but they did not serve us. And yes, we had our chips flipped the correct way to get service. For the cost of full rodizio we were totally ripped off. You couldn’t pay me enough money to go back to this place
Everything was great with the exception of how salty the meat was.
I can not praise this restaurant enough. It is the best experience I have ever had at a Brazilian steakhouse. The bar and sides were delicious,the meats were perfectly cooked (best lamb chop ever),the decor and service could not have been any more perfect. I was celebrating my birthday and appreciated the complimentary Tiramisu and no one singing happy birthday to me loudly!! I cannot wait to dine at Chima again!!!
It was my first time dining in Chima, and there service was pretty good!
This is my first time going back to Chima in 5 years. I would have to say everything is as amazing as it was. The food is amazing, and the service is impeccable. Our server, Omar is one of the most attentive server I have had. Thank you, Omar very much for making my experience with Chima very pleasant.
Great wait staff. Very attentive and friendly. The food was terrific as usual. The only person who wasn’t super friendly was the parking valet - the scowl isn’t working for you.
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
