“great food, helpful staff, very pleasant space”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2012

We went on a Friday night and had a really great dinner at this neighborhood gem. We decided on various small plates rather than the larger entrees. This gave us a good overview of a creative and excellent kitchen. The charcuterie (with fresh house made sausage), the mushroom tart, and the small whole blue fish were all exceptional. We also enjoyed our carrot soup and a salad. And we had a fine bottle of a Spanish red wine. We will return, and we encourage others to seek out this unique restaurant.

“Wonderful Food in a Cozy Cafe!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2008

My husband and I just had a wonderful dinner at the Chameleon Cafe on a busy Saturday night! We started with the fried green tomatoes with goat cheese and basil and the tomato aspic with chilled steamed shrimp, smoked mussels, smoked bluefish and cucumber salad. These appetizers were fresh, delicious and surprisingly complex.

Our entrees were equally yummy - my husband ordered the duck special and commented on how moist and flavorfull it was. I had the baked bluefish with lemon mayonnaise, shrimp mousse, zucchini corn fritters and wild rice - it was incredibly fresh fish with just the right amount of seasoning to let the fish shine through!

For dessert, we shared the black walnut cake that was topped with whipped cream and a raspberry sauce.

It is a small restaurant located in a lovely Baltimore townhouse with excellent food and attentive service. We will return soon!
