We sat outside on the patio - had a later reservation and Myles was able to seat us sooner which was excellent.
We did the chef special with wine pairing and it was delicious- Melissa was very attentive to our needs. We will 100% return. Highly recommend trying them out - a little gem in downtown Maple Ridge

The take out 3 course dinner travelled well our home. All of us were delighted with the taste and culinary excellence of the wonderful meal we shared. Thank you for a wonderful break from our routine.

Ordered the 5 course chef tasting patio experience with wine pairing. Really nice dishes, lots of flavours and textures. Scallops nicely seared. Steak grilled to perfection. Ample veg and greens to balance the proteins. Dessert a bit too sweet for me, but my wife loved it. If you go, arrive hungry. Even though the dishes are modest in size they are quite filling. Wine selection was very good, but could have been served with each course as opposed to getting 6 glasses in advance settling to the same (outdoor) temperature. I suppose thats just a Covid measure. Thanks to the staff who gave us a little heater (it was under 10 degrees C!) and for being so helpful. We’ll be back when indoor dining resumes!

We had a wonderful take out meal. The beef was tender and done just right and all that came with it complemented it well.
The salad was crisp and well presented. The dessert was spectacular.

Despite the confusion of booking a table and then being given 2 choices one of which is a take out, the staff managed to provide us a table and the experience was above reproach.

Miles and his staff went above and beyond.

Can’t say enough good things!! We decided to give this restaurant a try after seeing good reviews. The experience was better and more than what we had read. Spring menu got better with every course and the value was excellent. Highly recommend (have been to many high end steakhouses in downtown Vancouver and this is a hidden gem)

The chef's tasting menu was one of the best meals we have ever eaten - anywhere! Excellent combinations of flavour, texture and high quality ingredients. Beautiful sauces. We don't know of better food in the region, and easily compares with top Vancouver restaurants. Worth a trip to Maple Ridge to sample this.

Unfortunately even though we ultimately received what we ordered, the over quality of the food was sub par. My hubby ordered the gnocchi dish, which he loves at chameleon, this time it was just ok. I ordered the duck breast but got duck confit, which is not a problem but the dish was over powering and was unbalanced in flavour. My martini came in a champagne glass, which was a first for me but hey the kettle one vodka was great. I feel bad for this review but we don’t go out often these days and this meal was disappointing at the price point

Amazing service, we did the chefs tasting menu with wine pairings. Food was perfect temp, perfect combination of flavour and texture, and we tried some new things that really pleased our palettes!!!! Perfect night for our five year anniversary and we would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant to everyone we know!! The carrot cardamom soup was so good hubby and I wanted to eat a whole pot of it. 1000 stars.

The Chameleon was definitely a hidden gem. We were greeted and seated promptly right in front of the kitchen and really enjoyed watching the chefs at work. The food was really good however we found the portions to be a bit small. Overall it was a good experience and we would come back to try the tasting menu.

The steak was fab along with the Chicken and waffles appetizer. This should be made into a meal and not an appetizer. It is outstanding. The wine flight was okay but they should serve it like the breweries serve their flights on a block and just use stemless wine glasses. This makes it look classier since this is a classy place. Wine choices would be better if there were more on the menu.

We had the 5 course chef tasting menu, and it was unbelievable! I can't remember the last time I had such an amazing meal! The pork belly is out of this world! And the cocktails are so yummy! I've been to 5 star Michelin restaurants in Italy, and honestly I thought this was way better! Thank you so such an amazing dinner and great service!

This was our favourite restaurant at one time. This time, not so much. They renovated and removed all the booths, the overhead bar fixtures and now it is a two-story space that feels cold and bare. All the ambience and atmosphere that we liked is gone. The food is good, but seems too expensive for the bare-bones atmosphere now. The portions are even smaller than before and now they are just too small. My steak was the smallest piece of meat I have ever been served. It was just 3 small slices of a steak and my potato was trimmed to 1 sq inch and 4 inch long - really just a single large french fry size. The loberster dish was delious, but you had to hunt for the lobster - so little it was laughable. The service was rushed and the whole experience overall was just not like it was. We'll be travelling back to Coquitlam for our fine dining experience as this was the last place in Maple Ridge you could experience it. I hope they change it back as I'm sure their clientele will decline over time.

Had not been to the Chameleon for a few years. But decided that for a special birthday, this would be the ticket. And it was! Setting on two floors was even better than we remembered. The service was friendly and understated, fast and great especially since the covid-19 restrictions. Great menu choices for a memorable night out and the Chameleon would do well in a downtown Vancouver setting! The duck was succulent and the scallops big and tasty. Great wine selection, and the 'birthday special' was well appreciated. Spacing, distancing, etc. were pleasantly more than adequate, yet the restaurant felt "full" but secure.

One word...Phenomenal.
Hadn’t been here since pre-renovation, and it was even more amazing than we recall. The cocktails were top notch, the appetizers/soups and the main courses at a level beyond expectation. And the service, spot on.
Think we’ve found a favourite here in town that’s equal or above our downtown spots we love.
