The was great, I had scallops and then the duck, the service was also good, waiters were always around when you needed them. But it is also a busy birmingham bar, which we didnt realise until we arrived, what they provide is great, but if you are looking for a quiet/romantic place this isn't it.

I went with work for our xmas party on the 19th Dec. Like the previous review, we too were sat eating on the dance floor however the music hadn't started as we were seated at 6pm. I too had my phone stolen from the dining table. Its worth pointing out that only staff had access to our table at this... More

True to form! Visited on a busy Friday night. Having read the reviews I has a feeling that our entire group wouldn’t be allowed in, (7 people all Asian 3 ladies 4 guys). As mentioned I was reluctant to visit but was persuaded by my wife. After queuing for a short while approached the door and were advised on of... More

Booked private dining with some colleagues. Firstly the bouncer wasn't going to let of them in because of his shoes - what a joke there were guys in there with Christmas jumpers and football tshirts! Oh and buy the way loads with walking boots! Food was tasty but waitresses confused about this and that - in the end they made... More

We visited during the Christmas markets. Their menu consisted of about 10 meals, so how could they get anything wrong? Well our rare fillet steaks came out well done (a nasty over-charred taste). We sent them back . The staff didn't like this, so we cancelled them and went elsewhere. Just don't do it, avoid this restaurant, they aren't nice... More

I have never had a meal in the centre of Birmingham before and after wandering around the "Frankfurt Christmas Market" which was a waste of time and space I had hoped the meal would be good. It was alright but it did not inspire me. The menu choice for a "Christmas Special menu" lacked imagination and the stuffing was a... More

Came here for a meal with friends for a special occasion. Should have read the reviews first. The service was so poor drinks took over 45 mins to come. The waitress was asked where the drinks were and very rudely snapped back "sometimes the beer needs changing you know". I do know this however it would be nice to be... More

I visited Chameleon last Saturday lunch time with 4 friends, when we arrived the bar was reasonably empty, we went to the bar and waited and waited to get a drink! Eventually a young lady arrived to serve us, I asked for a vodka and tonic she didn't know what tonic was!! then proceeded to ring up £50 on the... More

Visited The Chameleon Friday 28.11.2104 with friends for the third time this year. However, on our third visit to celebrate a birthday standards in both service and food have definitely fallen. After the 'sharing starters' (Duck and Fish Boards) we asked for the table to be cleared as small pieces of meat had fallen onto the table from the chopping... More
