My second visit here and it was a great experience. The staff was very attentive and the food very good. I had the salmon which was great and my husband’s steak was very good. The dessert was a bit pricy. Overall, a great dinner.

I normally love Chambers Walk. Have gone there many, many times and totally enjoyed everything about the restaurant. Valentine's Day was a little less than what I have come to expect in terms of food price and quality. Not totally unexpected because of V-Day but so not the usual.

Had the most wonderful meal with my family for my daughter’s 19th Birthday - It’s going to become our traditional spot moving forward since she attends Rider University!! The food was amazing - perfectly cooked , great portions and quiet and relaxing for adult conversation !!

While the menu is limited, we all found things we loved. Dinners do not include a salad, but we always order one for the two of us to share. They always do a nice job of splitting it in the kitchen for us. The best part about this restaurant is that its BYOB which makes it a value.

Despite a very large party of 25 (obviously having a good time), my meal was outstanding. The food and the service were both up to the highest standards that I know so well.

Loved this restaurant. Tried it based on Open Table's recommendation. No regrets. The chef is very flexible with making entrees into first courses. Great service! Will definitely be going back. They change their menu seasonally and looking forward to the fall menu.

Fantastic food and nice location. Only negatives are the noise level as the sound from one area in the restaurant seems to echo throughout and wait time between courses were a little long but allowed time for conversation and wine. Would recommend as food was cooked to perfection.

Refused to serve the complete menu on a Saturday night. Apparently an $18 burger doesn’t have enough margin in it for them even though they don’t note the limited menu online. Walked out.

Dining on a couple of the bistro courses, the Cobb salad and the pappardelle Bolognese, I thought they were very well prepared. This was just another excellent combination of choices from the current, winter menu. With the usual outstanding service, these were perfect for a later evening meal!

Chambers Walk is quiet and unhurried. The menu selection is good and the food is good. Upon entering, however, I could smell industrial cleaning supplies which was very unappetizing. We were there on a Saturday night and it was less than half full. We arrived at 6 and left at 9. By 9:00 they were taking the tablecloths off the tables and cleaning up the restaurant. That's pretty early for a Saturday evening.

The opener of bread left something to be desired as they were cold dinner rolls (think sports banquet type). Later we saw some delicious looking bread (sourdough?) being served instead. We were thrilled with the two appetizer specials; one being a roasted portabella with roasted red peppers and spinach, and the other grilled asparagus with buratta, spinach and crostini.
Entrees were also amazing ( grilled pork chop and an organic salmon). We split the gluten free apple crisp with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. The crisp was barely warmed with made it a disappointment. Overall the food and service were very good. They used to have a guy playing a quiet guitar in the background during dinner which was always a nice touch.

The pork chop was very nicely done; it was one of several things that I've had from the recent menu that I could recommend to others. When I was seated I was surprised to see a friend and his wife at the table next to me. They were very happy about what they had ordered, too.
