Very good service. Attentive but not intrusive. Good food. Quiet enough to provide for normal conversation across the table. A very good place for a lunch meeting. Thank you

Overall pretty disappointing. The mains were so tiny. We ordered some bread when we saw the size of the main and were presented with a bread roll- between two of us.

Service wasn’t bad and our waiter was helpful and polite.

Big tables of loud American tourists ruined the ambience and no effort made to ask them to be a bit quieter.

With so many good restaurants in the same price range in Wellington, we won’t be returning.

The food here is really good, but the way the menu is presented is not clear on how things are priced, and on leaving the bill was wrong - overcharged - which we challenged and was corrected. So not as proficient as it should have been

Would not recommend as for what you got
It was way over the top on pricing
And you got the idea you where a fish in a bowl as we sat next to the window
Staff did not even know how to set a table

Excellent food. Difficult to hear people at the table. Service was not quite outstanding - slightly inattentive to our drinks situation, for example, our food was served before they had brought out our wine even though we’d ordered the wine 10 minutes earlier. Overall a very nice evening though. They have a great menu and a great wine list.

I loved my experience at Chameleon. The waiting staff were friendly, efficient and attentive without being obvious. The food was delicious and well presented. Three of us had the tenderloin which was cooked perfectly. Our desserts were delightful and I was surprised with a plate of petit fours with Happy Birthday written in Chocolate along with a candle! We used our Entertainment Book vouchers so it was very reasonably priced. A definite for returning.

A great vibe for our New Years night dinner. The restaurant was buzzing and staff keen and on the ball. The food was excellent and a great wine list provided for the perfect celebratory drinks. An experience we will be sure to repeat.

Amazing food, very creative options, and love the portion size idea (mid way between starter and main with the idea that you have two plates or multiple ones to share). We shared several deserts and every one of them was incredible.

Nice setting but on the ground floor so there are pedestrians walking by which does take away from the ambience. High quality food and good selection. Service not that attentive, could look after the dining experience a bit more. Despite these minor shortcomings I would recommend dining here.

Loved it here...beautiful restaurant, amazing food and lovely service. My husbands steak wasn’t quite cooked to his liking and he didn’t quite get what he was expecting for desert but it didn’t matter because everything else
Was amazing.... from the glassware and the cutlery to the chairs we sat on...only thing missing was a seaview 😉

Fabulous meal, as always. All 5 guests enjoyed the meal. My only comment would ge that over the last few times we have been we feel the portion size may have dropped a little. Having said that it was full of flavour, beautifully presented by very attentive staff.
Thank you

Ambience and food quality including presentation was good. However food
service was slow and if there is to be a long delay before being served, it would be a nice gesture to be told. Meal arrived 45 minutes later.

The staff were very obliging in accommodating our needs for our special occasion.
But...we waited far too long for drinks. I received the wrong main and had to wait for mine to be cooked while others at table ate theirs.... The meal, overall, was disappointing. I would not go back in a hurry for food.

Beautiful food and intelligent service. Concept of plate size is unusual, but stood-out as being a great way of dining, and for the quality, represented very good value for money.

The service from the two ladies working Jessie and Anna were excellent, they were very professional but also very personable.
Loved the surprise amuse bouche from the chef.
The food was delicious. The restaurant was very quiet only a couple of tables filled, can’t be helped at the Last weekend of Wow

We booked this for a really special get-together based on the reviews and wow, it really lived up to the recommendations. The cocktails beforehand were terrific and staff very welcoming. Once in the restaurant, we asked if we could move as we found it a bit cold by the entrance. The staff could not have been nicer or more accommodating. The food was exquisite. Not cheap but well worth it.

Fab food, great location. As long as you’re not stationed next to ‘the wall’ which gives you nothing to look. They need to add plants or elevate the area to see over it or something. It’s quite claustrophobic.
