“Very Good Food & Service”
Reviewed June 9, 2012

The food was very good and I found the service to be professional. Believe it or not, the best part of the meal was the salad. It had many different flavors that were pleasing to my taste buds. The cost was reasonable for this type of restaurant.

“OK but would go elsewere”
Reviewed March 5, 2012

2 of 5 dinners were not very good. Very nice place with OK service. I think it's overpriced for quality you get, but others in party enjoyed. Nice presentation of food. 3 times here over the years, not anymore.

“Good food, beautiful setting, and you can even learn how to cook!”
Reviewed February 11, 2012

I've just discovered the place and like other local restaurants, Chambers Walk has banked on local, sustainable food and that's really wonderful. The menu is seasonal but diverse and the staff is friendly and helpful, even when they get crazy busy. We even had a "cook it yourself" dinner there through work and it was wonderful. The chicken was fabulous and it was really fun to see how at least some the wonderful dishes on the menu were prepared. Just had lunch there again in January, and the salad was very tasty as well. But it does get busy, so come prepared to put your order in quickly if you have only 45 minutes for lunch.

“nice surprise - a find!”
Reviewed December 9, 2011

Chambers Walk's entrance can be a bit hard to find as it is a side entrance with a sweet path connecting the main street and the parking lot in back.

Ambiance and entry - At first glance there is charm and a warm welcoming feeling. Truly the atmosphere is lovely but something still misses the mark. I am not sure what it is but I think if it was a little more crowded. Sounds strange I know, because we all hate having tables so close and on top of each other. The room does have enough texture - brick wall, wooden floors and hanging art so I can only thing the space is too big for the amount of tables.

Food - was excellent. The quality, selection and willingness of the chef to modify and create to your taste is wonderful. This chef is almost mismatched to this restaurant as I think he belongs in a higher end local.

negative- There is a mildew smell when you first enter. Not sure if it dissipates or you get used to it and stop noticing. I once commented that they need to place some dehumidifiers in the area but the hostess dismissed my suggestion. Too bad. - This should not deter you from going to Chambers Walk though.

This restaurant is down to earth, not upscale but just what I often want when I go out with friends. A place with good food, comfortable ambiance and parking.
