I attended The Chameleon with a party of 30 work colleagues. From organising the event with Sharon, meal orders, wine orders etc - it was fantastic. The evening itself was fantastic. the food was served on time with no problems. the steak, fish and chicken dishes were all excellent. Our waiter for the evening was Johann and he was very... More

My sister booked this for me for a birthday treat. I was also with my 8 year old daughter. We had afternoon tea with a glass of prosseco. The staff presented my daugther with a champagne glass of strawberry cordial decorated with strawberries without us asking, her face just lit up. The food was delicious very tasty more than enough...

I visited The Chameleon on Friday 11th July 2014 to avail of the pre theatre menu. As a lonesome diner, in Birmingham on business, I had researched the restaurant and thought it would be a good option. Upon arrival, I did not find the lady at reception to be particularly engaging. No effort was made to make me feel welcome.... More

Had a ladies night out, booked a booth - not really worth the money to be fair, our waiter Dave was great, but as the booths are right by the dance floor, as soon as the place starts filling up, you have no chance, other people sit in your booth, leave there coats, hand bags there, you almost need to...

I went with my husband recently and thoroughly enjoyed the food, it was fairly early so quite empty.Just seen the old reviews as thinking of going back (both of us are British Asian). Don't know if their policy is any different to 2012 and have seen response from management about no racist policy. Unfortunately things don't seem to have improved... More

Pretentious, sexist and outdated door policy. Myself and four mature, sober, smartly dressed, polite, professional guys refused entry on grounds of us being male. Typically unprofessional, arrogant door staff or should I say 'bouncers'. I had friends with me this night from London, Bristol and Manchester that couldn't believe the attitude of a city centre club in 2014. We thought... More

I can only express my disgust with this place I was on my hen night in the private room with 12 ladies only to be interupted by a complete stranger who came in using vile language demanding to know who the hen was and get involved with our entertainment! Finally having spent not much less than £400 to be man... More

Has anyone encountered trouble for gaining entrance to chameleons before? I have been refused entry on a number of occasions on my own and with 1 or 2 of my friends for no apparent valid reason or explanation. The bouncers are rude. Although we have been refused because we are not on the guest list? and a number of white... More

We have eaten at the Chameleon twice recently. We had Groupon vouchers on both occasions and were able to choose anything off the menu which is unusual for this sort of deal. We shared a delicious platter to start and both had fillet steak as a main course which were both cooked to perfection. With this deal the value for... More

... save your money. Quite possibly one of the worst 'restaurant' experiences I've ever had. My work colleagues and I (14 in total) visited on a Monday night and the 'kitchen' couldn't cope, despite the fact that we had booked and were the only people in the entire place (which must have 100 covers minimum). Delivering meals for part of... More
