Second time I have eaten at Chameleon bar yet again excellent food my husband and I both had steak it was tender cooked as stated "pink". Much better than the steaks at Marco Pierre White's The staff were attentive and friendly. We will be going back and definitely recommend a visit.

My partner and I often dine at this establishment, especially to take advantage of the excellent value for money pre-theatre menu. However, on this occasion we were strongly disappointed with the food, service and quality of our experience. Over the course of the meal we received no fewer than TEN menus between us, thanks to unknowledgeable staff. This paired with... More

I have been here before a few years ago for lunch and found the food and atmosphere very good but never ventured back until last night. Four of us went and had a fantastic time, the menu was varied, the service from when we arrived until we left was first class and the food was Michelin star in my opinion.... More

Visited 11th Sept for dinner and was unimpressed with the welcome at the door. We had not made a booking but asked if they could fit myself and my wife for dinner straight away. The chap dealing with us was very negative and we also had problems understanding what he was saying, he kept pointing at his screen and shaking... More

Like some previous reviewers, it seems the bouncers at the door have a very selective entrance policy. We attempted to have a drink at The Chameleon and despite being very smartly dressed, not drunk and Indian, me and my two friends were refused entry. The bouncer clearly contradicted himself when I questioned his reasoning. I cannot believe in this day... More

A group of 8 friends joined me on Saturday 30th August. We had 3 food boards and several cocktails which were 2-4-1. Everything was delicious. By 10pm the music was really in flow and people were feeling it in the room.. We loved the old classics the dj played. By midnight, everybody was jumping to the music. We knew most... More

Wanted a smart and classy evening out with cocktails and dancing.... And that's exactly what we got. It's nicely decorated and mostly well staffed. ( the waitress was inexperienced and there was a bit of a mix up with our drinks but they were very apologetic) We decided to eat and had a couple of tapas like boards to share... More

We ordered a 'grazing' starter for four and were all impressed with the quantity and quality. We each ordered a steak for our main meal... More
