Gem in the Hood
We love Chambers and the Phoenix Hotel. It's always a little surprising (in a good way) to arrive and indulge in one of the most relaxing, scenic places to eat and drink in San Francisco. Food and drinks are top notch. Perfect little getaway or staycation.

Food was great. My boyfriend
Food was great. My boyfriend and I ordered the egg in a hole and the egg sandwich and added pork belly. We also got the fries, which were a little bland, but nothing a little salt couldn't fix. Overall, it was a great experience and we will definitely be making another trip back.

A great place for a pre-show drink and meal. The spaghetti squash side is incredible.

Very fun place! The restaurant/bar
Very fun place! The restaurant/bar has a really great vibe, unique compared to other places in San Francisco. Good for a group or just for 2. Definitely a little noisy & service is just OK, but would recommend.

Chill Dinner and Drinks
This place is trendy but not overly so. Classic lounge infused with seating for dinner and a private room in back for dancing and the bar standers. Had previously visited for drinks and was definitely perceived as a "hidden gem" by all my guests. My first food experience here was wonderful as well. I went with one girlfriend and we chose the Tri tip which is served on a hot stone to cook to your liking. We also ordered the vegetable dish (chefs special) and it was off the charts! This option will change per evening - but a great option to branch out and get your veggies in! Two more girlfriends met us after dinner for drinks prior to heading out for an event also in the Tenderloin. Wait staff was very attentive, patient and accommodating.

This was the third time I've
This was the third time I've had dinner at Chambers and its always been a good place for tasty, well prepared food. The service staff is right on, bar could be run a tad better. They need a few more sparkling wines on there wine list. Does seem to be more of a bar scene in high season and not as much as the food part which is why we like to go there. Still would go back if I am staying at the Phoenix.

Great restaurant. Beware of the neighborhood - Tenderloin.

Above & Beyond -- New York
This is a really great spot -- and more than anything, too many places here in San Francisco try to copy New York. Chambers is way above and beyond anything you find in New York. And that's what makes it cool. It's not trying to be anything else other than its own place. The menu is fun -- the bar scene is fun - better yet, no damn attitude! Service very down to earth and friendly -- yet very professional. It's got a quirky vibe that goes from start to finish -- the team they have assembled, the menu and the cocktails and bar set up. Isa was there the night we went -- she is amazingly beautiful, and so approachable and extremely attentive. And I think it starts at the top and works its way to all the team at Chambers.

The food was excellent, and decently priced. I just wished their coffee came in larger quantities.

We were quickly sat when we arrived and surprised to find the restaurant t still quite full even at 10p. It stayed so until close to 1a!
Service was sharp and consistent with our last visit. It had been a while and many of our favorite menu items had been replaced. The Kobe on the stone is still a huge favorite and loved the new blue fin tuna!

Amazing food in a beautiful space
Food at Chambers was outstanding and did not disappoint. Our server was friendly and efficient but not overbearing - basically there when we needed but not the hovering type. Back to the food. Its truly surprising to have such an amazing foodie oriented experience in the middle of the TL. Every dish was expertly prepared and presented. Flavors were well balanced with some very interesting combos. The portions are on the small side but seem very consistent with other restaurants I would consider to be in this group. The surrounding area is a bit sketch, but I think that only ads to the uniqueness of the experience.

We were in town for a convention (vmworld) and stop by. Great place, great food, good wine list. Bar section a bit small and was full around 11h. We'll surely go back next year!
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
everything was so good, including the cocktails. i had the #12 cocktail, jalapeno infused vodka with cucumber. it was a great combo. the duck as a main course was excellent.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Absolutely loved the tater tots, small bites steak, hamburger and their signature drinks! Waitress was very sweet and helped with recommendations. Super fun and friendly. I can't wait to go back!

Solid Tenderloin Brunch Spot
Great outdoor brunch spot. The French Toast was quite sweet which the waiter did mention. They weren't super on top of the bottomless mimosas. Really perfect for a warm day to sit by the pool. The pork belly was meh, not the best I'd ever had but ok.

Food was delicious and unique, perfect sunny San Francisco day, mimosa was tasty (and heavy pour). I'd go back (again and again).

Can't get enough of the Kobe beef on the hot stone. I'm tempted to order 2 or 3 and just call it a day!
Now to start working my way through the cocktail menu. So far the first three have been fantastic!

Classy and Upbeat
I love the food and atmosphere at Chambers. I have only ever been for brunch, but I can never decide what to get because everything on the menu sounds amazing. I have now ordered both the Egg In A Hold and the Egg Sandwich and have left feeling full and happy. The bottomless mimosas on Saturdays are also a nice touch. The atmosphere at Chambers is fun and funky with the cool rock theme and feeling you are sitting in some rockstar or music lover's private den. You can also sit outside and dine in the sun overlooking the pool at the Phoenix Hotel, making you feel like you've left the city and are resorting somewhere far and away. I definitely recommend this place if you want a great brunch and don't want to wait 2 hours to get into Brenda's.

Good late night fare
If you're out drinking and want a place to have some nice food and a fancy cocktail, this is the spot. Burger with avocado and pork belly was delicious, the ahi was solid, brussel sprouts simple but nice, and whatever else we got worked as well. I don't put this on par with any of the top restaurants in SF, but it's surprisingly good for what is essentially bar food.

Great, creative menu with seasonal influence! Everything we tried was fantastic. Cool vibe and cosy at same time. Definitely will go back with friends.

The neighbourhood presents
The neighbourhood presents a challenge to some. The Tenderloin District has many street people and this can be unpleasant. However, once you arrive you will be treated to a fantastic restaurant and nightclub. The server was engaging, the ambiance of the restaurant makes you want to stay all evening. The food took a little longer than I expected, but it was delicious, creatively presented, and fresh. I will definitely return.
Noise level moderate mid week, but it's a nightclub on weekends.

Awesome Lounge Spot
Great for a nice night out. Energetic, fun and great drinks. Staff is very friendly and efficient. I like how it can be dressy, but not snobby. Good date spot!

My Favorite SF restaurant
This is my 3rd visit to Chambers. The burger with pork belly is amazing. The tri tip is good too. We were given drinks on the house on account of a long wait. We didn't think it took that long to get our drinks but we appreciated the apology. The coffee cake is fantastic.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
This place was absolutely delicious and we also felt cool being there!

Still great, yet not outstanding
We come to Chambers once a month, but for the first time the food wasn't outstanding any more. It is still very good, but the Brussels sprouts which were once set apart from any Brussels sprouts in Bay Area were just good Brussels sprouts, the pork belly wasn't at just the right cattiness anymore and some of the less mainstream items disappeared from the menue all together.

Gem in Tenderloin
An undiscovered gem in TL and never with a line for brunch.

Found this restaurant after a long day of traveling. Pulled up in front of a motel and wondered if I made a mistake. Turned the corner to find the entrance and a gem awaited us inside. Wonderful service, a great wine and cocktail list, and amazing food cured my travel exhaustion. The small plates were not only exceptional, they were prepared in a manner I've never seen (powdered bacon?). Loved everything about this place!
