Awesome vibe. Menu is smaller than pre-covid, but the food was good (ravioli and arroz con pollo) and the drinks (mezcal and burbon) were solid. My only complaint was dessert - the churros and their 2 dipping sauces (chocolate and dulche de leche) had absolutely no flavor. the sauces were watery and just tasted like milk.

One of the best kept secrets of the Tenderloin. Absolutely incredible chorizo, cocktails, and atmosphere. Will be coming back very soon.

Chambers is a joy. We were almost the only people there on a foggy Sunday morning. The food is truly outstanding. Service was great, as well, and you can’t beat the ambience of being poolside!

A gem, tucked away from the surrounding city, where you dine around a hotel courtyard with pool.

We were literally the only people in the restaurant on a Fri night. Food is average. Atmosphere could be fun if there were other patrons. Restaurant located in a very undesirable location in tenderloin. Walking to the theater was sketchy even for a city person like myself. Server said she rolls with a knife for safety.

I live the ambiance in this vinyl filled beautiful bistro. The appetizers need a few more additions; more seafood.
The entrance is an issue as it is being used as a bathroom. We felt unsafe trying to get through the door. I appreciate that you called a security guard.

Honestly,
Food was way better than I expected and really interesting, everything was fantastic but what really makes Chambers (and the Phoenix hotel) is the level of attention and care the staff give the customers. For me that makes the difference of where I’d like to give my $. So chambers, keep treating your staff right because it shows❤️

HAVN’T BEEN OUT IN A WHILE? FAIR WARNING!
BRING YOUR PROOF OF VACCINATIONS!!!

It was great to eat indoors again. Chambers has been top of our list as the best place to eat in our neighborhood for years.
I was pleased to see a newly revised menu.

My parter had the steak w/ potatoes.

The trout was recommended by our waiter.
It was everything promised.

Afterwards we enjoyed sharing the peach tart with a toasted filo dough ( like for baclava ) crust with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

This desert alone was a showstopper!

"Bravo Chambers Ensemble
Staffing!”

Top to bottom you keep us coming back for more!

Food was not bad but not memorable. The severs were really nice tho.

The place is cool inside and outside. They have probably the biggest music records collection on display. Good place for drinks and to hang out with friends.

Unfortunately they’re located in an area where there’s a lot of homeless. Most were screaming, on drugs, .. pushing their carts towards the cars.. we didn’t feel safe walking on the sidewalk or parking on the street.

Park at the hotel if you can.

LOVED this place and can't believe I haven't heard of it sooner. It is the first place in SF that reminded me of a Roosevelt's Tuesday Night Swim type vibe. Not quite the same but a super fun experience with a really pretty ambiance outside by the fire pit and pool! Will definitely continue to go back.

Drinks and ambience were fantastic. We ordered the ravioli and it was the smallest portion of pasta I've ever seen in my life. It was drowning in mushroom sauce that tasted like it came from a can. And the plate was $18. Would definitely come back for drinks, but not food.

Booked it for brunch before going to the Van Gogh exhibit. They didn’t seem to have it together in terms of service at all. Food was late, cold generally staff seemed confused, not ready when they opened. Maybe short staffed due to Covid restrictions but they need to get it together. Maybe take fewer guests so they can handle them. Location by pool is cute. Last entree was super late they should have at least comped it. We left most of it on the table.

Loved most of what Chambers has to offer. Amazing atmosphere, prompt and discerning service and accommodating to needs. The food is also mostly fabulous. As are the drinks. I'd avoid dessert however. The crema catalana was curdled, not smooth and creamy as it should be.

The. service. was. awful. It wasn't intentionally awful. It just was but I don't know why. Things did not seem to be more busy than usual.
Seated @ 1.05 PM
Drinks order taken @ 1.10PM
Food order taken @ 1.30PM
Drinks come @ 1.40PM
Food comes @ 2PM

Somewhere in there I was able to order a 2nd drink but had to have it re-made because the Tequila Drink that I ordered came back tasting like a Bloody Mary for some reason

Everything we ate was Great. Both Appetizers were wonderful. The Frozen slushee drink was so good I had two. My only complaints are that the entree' while delicious from a portion standpoint left a bit to be desired. Even with 2 shared appetizers I hadn't eaten enough to absorb those two frozen drinks. And thot took me eagerly to the dessert menu which was a total bummer because it only had TWO things on it and neither appealed to me. They DEFINITELY need to work on the dessert menu. 2 things is not enough. We ended up ordering a third appetizer after dinner. So if the entree' portions are going to be light enough that we are clamoring for the dessert menu? There has to be more choices on it! The ambience was lovely, the server was adorable and friendly and the DJ was definitely giving it a Supper club feeling that we will return for. I just hope by the time we get back there are at least 4 dessert choices!!
