food was very good. Try the angry goat cheese appetizer. Salmon piccata was very good as well. Old fashioned was perfect. Wine selection is the only area in need of improvement

Prior to our food arriving a very large family gathering sat next to us where we were unable to hear each other. It definitely changed our eating experience.

For a table of 6, all 6 of us were extremely happy with our meals. The Tuna Stir Fry (which was actually sesame encrusted tuna on rice pilaf with sauteed vegetables), Chicken Quesadilla, and Chicken Bruschetta meal were all outstanding. The dishes were large plates, very flavorful, and cooked perfectly. For the price point it was a steal. The cocktails were great too. Great service. There was a live band and we sat outside in the street under the stars. Fun night overall.

My husband and I went to dinner here two weeks before our wedding for a date night! We called to verify and confirm the wine situation and learned that they do indeed have a full bar and the host was so friendly and double checked our reservation and shared that they looked forward to our visit!

We arrived and we overwhelmed how every single person in the restaurant was cheerful and welcoming! We had a cute table in the front window where we could watch the street view and they server made excellent recommendations on the menu and we laughed and shared an unforgettable night.

I’ll admit that masks and covid dining is intimidating to me and I have not felt this comfortable out dining since before covid restrictions!

We are so grateful for the connecting date we had! We can’t wait to go back!!

Great little spot in the heart of Doylestown. Fish tacos and cheesesteaks highly recommended. Also loved the pretzels and fried pickles. Friendly service. Wonderful neighborhood vibe.

We have enjoyed going to Chambers 19 Bistro for years. It has always been a great eating experience. I have never had a bad meal there no matter what I ordered. I would highly recommend trying this local Doylestown eatery that has been there at least since we moved to Doylestown twenty-two years ago.

It was nice to be out again! Chambers 19 did a great job setting up outside. Beautiful night, the atmosphere was so nice. Live music provided a really nice touch. Food was delicious. Service was slow, but to no fault of the servers, they were all hustling. Were they short-staffed or maybe the social distancing of the tables made things difficult? This would certainly not stop me from returning, but it was a 30 minute wait to get drinks, and then order food. Definitely cutting them a break due to social distancing restrictions.

Very nice outdoor seating arrangements. Having an umbrella was a nice touch on a sunny day with the possibility of sprinkles. Waitstaff was friendly and observant. Food was good. Always glad to dine local and support local families that reside in the community.

We were a party of 10. We were disappointed when we arrived to find they had discontinued the buffet. That was why we chose Chambers. There were only about 12-16 other patrons there.

Something for Everyone! Chambers 19 is one of our go-to restaurants. The food is always really good, and the prices are reasonable. In the front part of the restaurant is the bar, which is always hopping with lots of people and great live music. The back room is quiet and good for conversation. We tend to eat in the back, since we don't want to have to shout to be heard. But if we had a group to go out with, we may go back for the bar scene. It looks like a lot of fun, and there are people of all ages.

Hey, food was pretty good and the place is nice with nice atmosphere. Service we had that afternoon was a real turn off. Waitress completely unpleasant, unattentive and failed to bring back appetizer plates or check on us. Also, the restaurant was not busy, but I had to go find her for check. I get that everyone has a bad day, but sheesh, don't take it out on customers. We actually had just come from our weddding ceremony for a nice lunch and were disappointed about being treated like an afterthought. The food was good, I would be willing to try it again some time.

Overall, we had a very poor experience. The service was not great. We had asked for condiments and the server never brought them until we asked again. The food was disappointing.
