Great cocktails but queue at the bar too long a wait.

We always come here for the cocktails. They are all made fresh infront of you and each taste wonderful. We came on Saturday evening while the 2for1 on cocktails was still on. The only problem is that there were not enough bar staff on serving, hence we had to wait 20 minutes to get served. Due to... read more

Visited the restaurant once again before going to theatre. Although the pre theatre menu is excellent value we went for food from the main menu. Excellent food, great value cocktails, two for one can't be bad and service first class. See you all soon.

My wife and I were in Birmingham to celebrate the graduation of our Grand daughter at Birmingham Town Hall. It was a marvellous day for us but the rain could not have been heavier and when it was all over we went into The Chameleon Restaurant for lunch as being the nearest safe haven from the storm. It was our... More

Good cocktails - 241 before 10. Good customer services, friendly staff. Had a lunch meeting here before, it was quiet and good atmosphere. Music can be slightly too loud after 10 if you are looking for a first date location

I arranged a celebration evening for my daughter's forthcoming wedding at The Chameleon on Satgurday 20th June 2015. We used the private dining facilities offered. Sharon, The Events Co-Ordinator was absolutely brilliant in helping organising this. Nothing was too much trouble and with her planning, the evening was a great success. We had a set menu and the choices and... More

Went here for a hen night. The food you could count how much was on your plate the portion was that small, it was disgusting! Some of the staff were not friendly, the cocktails were nice if you didn't mind hardly any alcohol in them and the music was good! But overall it was rubbish and I would never go... More

After a disappointing first visit , our second trip went spectacularly well, a huge thank you to all the staff. The new manager was on the ball and the new menu along with new sweet chef came up trumps, very creative and delicious,well worth the effort and we will revisit.

This restaurant & bar is beautiful. The decor is plush and very spacious. We ate in the bar area, from the bar menu which was very good. The food we had was presented beautifully and was of very good quality. The staff were polite and attentive to our needs. Highly recommended.

On way to theatre decided to make the most of the 2-4-1 cocktail offer. Greeted by Shannon, Sam & Alex we were pleasantly surprised that the offer stated you could have 2 differing cocktails but pay for one. The result? 18 cocktails later! The service was excellent, Dave complimented the drinks with lovely sharing platters from the bar menu and... More
