    We have lived in the neighborhood for over 10 years and never experienced Chamberlain's. What a loss! This has, with one evening's meal, become one of our favorite restaurants in far north Dallas. Superb service (efficient but not pretentious), great atmosphere, and great food. A great place for not only carnivores, but pescavores, too!

    The business dinner I recently had at Chamberlain's was not bad but was certainly not of the quality one would expect with the attendant prices. The table service was fine for the most part, but it took a while for our dinner to arrive and when it did, the filets were not hot but rather only warm as if they had been sitting under a heat lamp. The creamed corn was rather soupy and the parmesan grits were disappointing not withstanding a strong recommendation from our waiter. I am hoping this was an off night for Chamberlains as it was in no way comparable with Bob's or Al Biernet's in quality and service.

    We brought 3 couples who had never been to Chamberlains out to dinner Saturday evening. Needless to say, we indicated that Chamberlains was one of the top steak houses in the area and that they were in for a treat. When the waiter came to our table, I specifically asked him how rare I could get the prime rib. Really rare, he responded. Our guest to the right ordered a filet mignon medium rare and it was on from there. My prime rib came out medium to the point I asked the waiter if he thought the meat was rare. He responded, I guess not. I will get you another piece if you like. When seven other people are eating, the last thing you want to do is reorder meat. My buddy cut his filet open to find the meat brown on the inside.

    One of our out of town dinner guests grew up in Argentina and prefers beef. Chamberlains was listed as a top ten Dallas steak house, so we elected to try Chamberlains and were quote happy with our choice. Great waiter who was attentive and informed. And the beef was great. We will return for own nights out for dinner and look forward to taking other dinner guests.

    They were busy and we had to flag down our Server a few times but Ricky was very nice. The food was amazing...the lobster deviled eggs topped with bacon; NY Strip and 40-Day Aged Ribeye...melted in our mouths and cooked to order and perfection. The bread is amazing but pop-overs taste burnt each time a go there; overall...very good and I am regular.

    The food and service were wonderful. The food was hot for all 6 in our party and our server was very prompt. The only negative was the noise level. The restaurant was packed so it was a little difficult to carry on a conversation with a party of 6. However we will return based on the food.

    I took my boyfriend here Saturday night for his birthday. I wanted somewhere with good food a romantic feel. I made the reservation via Open table for 10:30. When I pulled up to valet I was told that they don't take reservations after 10. I told them our reservation was confirmed for 10:30, so they hesitantly parked my car. There was no welcome to chamberlains from valet. We were greeted when we walked into the restaurant though. The waitress quickly told us to hurry and look at the menu as we had to have our order in by 10:30. Which made me feel like I shouldn't have booked chamberlains. The filet mignon was tough, not the feedback I was looking for from my boyfriend. My chicken was very greasy, I took two bites and had it boxed. Unhappy

    Overall, Chamberlain's is a little below average when compared with other high-end steakhouses in the DFW area. Went for Restaurant Week. The price was good (set price for Restaurant Week), however the food was average and my steak was a little small and thin for a prime rib. The service was average, although our waiter was very personable. The main issue was the loud noise. We could barely hear each other speak, like being at a concert. Definitely not romantic. I'd recommend III Forks or other top steakhouses before I'd recommend Chamberlain's.

    Food was amazing! We had great appetizers (watermelon and lobster and ahi tuna) that arrived quickly to our table. The filet mignon had great flavor and cooked exactly how I requested (medium rare). Go with the cheesecake if you're getting dessert! Our server, Michael, was helpful with drink choices and provided good service all around. The restaurant is not too loud and allows for good conversation and enjoying the dining experience.

    We came here for Restaurant week since we have never been here before! Our waitress/service was excellent! She was so nice, friendly and funny and catered to whatever we needed! The food was awesome! Mine and my husbands filet was cooked to perfection, whipped potatoes were so creamy! The only thing I wasn't a fan of was the bread pudding, it was a little dry and not a lot of flavor! But my husbands cheesecake was amazing! We look forward to coming back and trying the actual menu!

    This was the best dinner I have had out in years. Even the bread and (garlic) butter were excellent. My ahi tuna with noodles was perfect. My fillet was delicious as was the goat cheese mashed potatoes. Dessert was the weak point but it wasn't bad. The flavor was very good but it did not have a true cream brûlée texture. I went with 7 friends and everyone liked their dinner as much as I did. Two ladies,even booked a reservation for two days later. The waiter was very nice too.

    We both ordered our meat medium-well. Mine came out medium-rare and son's was well-done. I had to send mine back so by the time I got mine, my son was done eating. The management graciously removed the meal from the bill. It was still a nice evening out. We decided that restaurants are not equipped to prepare meat other than rare, medium and well-done.

    Chamberlain's used to be a great neighborhood steakhouse. I am not sure what has happened. The steak was excellent and perfectly cooked but everything else was lacking. Potatoes were runny and seriously over salted. Meyer lemon crème had no hint of lemon and the sugar glaze was a quarter inch thick, you had to remove it with a knife because you could not crack it. Server tried to replace but the second one was no better. Never received a glass of wine we ordered. Not the evening we had planned.

    We were rushed from the beginning. The room was very loud, making conversation difficult. The two seat table we were given was right in the path from the bathroom/kitchen area. The hustle-bustle was very distracting. Table was so small, the menu and wine list wouldn't fit. While tender, the filet was over seasoned/too salty. The variation between the two filets we received was laughable (one very small, one proper sized). The person who delivered the food (not one of the two people who waited on us) asked if there was a problem…we sort of chuckled at the difference in appearance and the response was, "maybe yours is thicker". Thankful for restaurant week!

    I came b/c the restaurant week menu sounded tasty. As a matter of fact I had trouble deciding on my dishes. For the most part I was pleased w/ my food & the small bite I tasted of my friend's; only thing is that a few side items were a bit saltier than I prefer. I enjoyed my watermelon & crab gazpacho; the two flavors actually made for a nice combo. My friend's salad however, was drowning in dressing so she wasnt very pleased w/ that. My filet mignon was nicely accompanied by goat cheese mashed potatoes (one of the slightly salty items); my friend's crusted chicken breast & bacon waffle was also tasty (and surprisingly served with some type of mashed potato?) I would've liked the chocolate/pb bread pudding to be less "wet"...but I'd return!

    We went to Chamberlain's for Dallas Restaurant Week and were very pleased with out choice. The Menu is fantastic and making a choice among the selected items for Restaurant Week was difficult. We started out with the Central Market Fourth Course which was pork belly sliders with Asian slaw and it was fantastic. The Gazpacho with lump crab meat was excellent as was the Seared Ahi Tuna and the Grilled Romaine salad. For a main course the Prime Rib and Filet Mignon were fantastic. The three dessert choices were equally as good as the rest of the menu. Our server, Ricky, was very attentive and couldn't have been more helpful with suggestions. All in all, one of our better choices for a Restaurant Week outing. We will be going back!

    I love Chamberlain's Fish Market Grill. This restaurant just keeps getting better with time. The servers always seem to be so polite and caring. My wife is a picky eater and the servers here always bend over backwards to accommodate out special requests. The food is divine, so fresh and expertly prepared. I usually get the daily specials and we always start with their appetizer combination. They have a wine special area of the wine list that has some really great prices. Oh....and don't forget the coconut pie for dessert......simply the best. I can't wait for our next visit.

    Let's start at the beginning, valet is complimentary and the attendants are super friendly. The decor is cozy and simple, but with a touch of elegance. The wine list is extensive and the manager Jim recommended a wine that paired perfectly with our dinner. The food was AMAZING! Our steaks were cooked to perfection and melted in our mouths, we had grits and mac and cheese which were warm and fresh. We had the coconut creme pie for dessert and with an espressotini, dessert was divine! The staff was incredibly friendly and attentive and we were recieved with a warm smile at the door. Don't forget this place has a cigar lounge and as a Dallas native this is truly a one of a kind experience. I am truly impressed!!

    First time at Chamberlain's. Good food and drink, but rather cramped. Several waiters bumped me with plates. Crowded and very noisy--I would have never selected this restaurant for our table of seven if I had known I could only speak to the person sitting next to me. The tight and noisy surroundings reminded me of a NYC restaurant.

    We had a party of 4 for dinner on Saturday, August 16, 2014. Two of the entrees were excellent. However, one steak, ordered medium, came well done. The other steak, ordered well done, came medium rare. It was sent back three (3) times before it was cooked as ordered. This was VERY disappointing for a restaurant this caliber. They did comp us 2 desserts, however. But still a disappointing meal.
