Eater Review - September 7, 2016
"Next year, Chameleon Restaurant & Bar will celebrate its 20th anniversary, but it seldom gets media attention—although if you strolled past it on any given night you wouldn't know it from the busy dining room. The menu’s all over the map—literally, as there are dishes from Italy, Thailand, Mexico, and France—with highlights like chimichurri’d pork loin with rice and green beans and a seared cod served with mushrooms, asparagus, carrots, mango, and a ginger-garlic sauce. It gets bonus points, too, for having one fantastically large patio."

"The menu has a varied variety of different foods and flavors from different parts or the world. Relaxing atmosphere, the staff (Steve) and the owner (Pat) touched tables and are extremely professional.
The place is amazing!
And I recommend this to any foodie!
Nice work and Cheers!" Steve S

"Hidden gem of a place. The food is fantastic, the ambiance is intimate and the staff is extremely accommodating... They gave us lovely service and amazing food! The butternut squash ravioli is to die for.
I'd highly recommend the back patio during the summer and fall months!
It walks the line between neighborhoody and cosmopolitan, yet feels authentic. I can't rave about it enough!"

"Chameleon Restaurant & Bar: Imagine a French restaurant in '50s Southeast Asia. That's the vibe here: mysterious and cozy with antiques, like a semi-public club... European preparations and Northwest ingredients yield a delicious fusion - with sweet, rather than fiery undercurrents. A Thai salad peanut salad, of pungent cilantro and other fresh greens tossed in peanut sauce, is refreshing. A continental classic rack of lamb gets marinated with fresh rosemary and thyme, and sauced with merlot after grilling. Vegetarian options are thoughtfully noted on the menu."
Chameleon Restaurant & Bar was also featured on AM Northwest and a scene from the Portlandia series Parker Posey was filmed on-location in 2012.
