We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. I had the Pork Belly appetizer and it was amazing and another person had the soup and said it was the best soup she ever had. My steak was cooked perfect and my wife enjoyed her Halibut and said it was seasoned perfect. My wife is a chef and always finds a flaw in the food and this time she said it was amazing....We highly recommend.

Though the meals themselves were delicious, I don't think we'd go back. We first ordered wine off the menu, only to come back and say they didn't have it so they offered another kind for the same price. They had a limited menu with only 2 other specials that evening; but a lot of seafood on the menu which most of our party doesn't eat. They did offer options which was great including a chicken, pork and beef. I opted for the sirloin. I know most chefs hate when people order beef medium well, but that is how I prefer it and if I'm paying $35 for a meal, I'd like it to come out to my liking. I even explained to our waiter that I only wanted a little bit of pink. It came out raw, sent it back; then it came out hotter on the outside, but now medium rare. I had to send my meal back a second time, where they cooked it well done (no pink at all). There were 3 pieces of sliced meat on my plate and at that point the rest of our party had finished their meals so I ate it anyway. The servers apologized profusely, but working in the restaurant industry myself, I know it wasn't their fault that the chef didn't know how to properly cook a steak to how the patron wanted it. However, they had several waitstaff on hand, the restaurant wasn't completely filled and we had to wait about 15-20 minutes for a 2nd drink as the first one apparently was given away to someone else. We left their satisfied, not stuffed which is perfectly fine, but for 3 pieces of meat (I would guess it was a 4oz sirloin steak before cooking), 3 bites of carrots and some home fried potato chips, it wasn't worth the price of the dish. I don't believe they are in the right kind of neighborhood to charge those kind of prices and not deliver on the service; which most people don't mind paying for.

Food was excellent. Service left something to be desired. Expected a little more professionalism at the price. Manager said they were much busier than normal, due to exceptional review. Will definitely give it another try.

They need more help, we waited forever to get service and the food was ok. The owners were very nice but they really need to get more help, we saw people walking out because they were not being helped

What a wonderful dining experience! Our second time here in ten days! The pickled beet salad was delicious. I don’t know what kind of feta cheese they use, but it is delicious.
The halibut is exceptional. Perfectly cooked, with the most excellent cauliflower preparation. So satisfying. The J Chardonnay was perfect with it. My husband had the trout special which was truly special. A magnificent dinner.

I would recommed but maybe not on a friday night. Food was very good but something was off in the kitchen we waited as did others for our dinner. Almost an hour after appetizers were served.

Café Chameleon in Bloomingdale is a great addition to the town. The renovation to the space is evident. The chairs are comfortable and we enjoyed spending our evening in the new space. My 89 year old mother in law was with us and she said it was the Best meal of her life! Appetizers included scallops and salads. Entrees were duck, pork and halibut. Desserts were the highlight of the meal. Don't skip dessert! Apple turnover and pumpkin pave with cinnamon donut were wonderful. We will be back.

The food was wonderful. The chef is a genius with food. The red snapper I had was perfectly seasoned and absolutely delicious. My husband’s duck was perfectly cooked. The presentation was exquisite.
The wine list was very good. There were a few wines that were higher priced, but most were midrange in price.
The owners were very charming and welcoming. We felt extremely comfortable.
We will be back.

The bar was the best, would definitely go to have a drink. We had reservations for 7 and we're sat at 7. Waited for at least 15 minutes before anyone came. After all the waiting, we were served our Dinner after 9pm. Need to get rid of the iPads and use a pad and paper to take the orders. Need to get more help. Way over priced.
