Love this place. Many choices and every bite is great. Chicken Satay is very moist and tasty. The Chroma sliders are really great.

We had a group of 6, which we used open table to create the reservation. I found the place on Yelp. Each person in the group got something different with the intention to share. Everything at the table was tasty. Our server was great. Not sure what else i need to write to convince you this place is worthy of a visit😁

We bring a lot of out-of-town guests and friends to Chroma because it is always a great experience. There is something for everyone on the menu and the small plates encourage folks to try things they may not necessarily order - like brussel sprouts! The atmosphere is lively without being rowdy, they have a great drink selection and the staff is superb. It continues to be one of our favorites.

We ordered the Family Steak dinner and the steak was SO peppery - it was over powering. And there was a weird after taste because of the cooker they put it in. BUT the manager took it back to the kitchen and made it right. The new steak was very good. But the experience and the waiting again put a little damper on our Family New Years Day dinner. The rest of the food was great, the waitress was lovely and it was nice that the tried to make it right.

We were weighing options for dinner and chose Chroma. And we are so happy that we did!
We began with a bourbon beer which was great.
Small plates were then on our radar!
We chose carefully! We began with a nice kale salad and also carmelized Brussels sprouts which were truly addictive!
Even my spouse who is totally a non veggie person ate his share!
We were mesmerized at this point!
Next came sliders- lamb and the chroma signature sliders!
OMG! Perfectly cooked and so well seasoned and dressed!
We still had one more plate: fish and chips!
Could we still be wowed?
We were!
The tartar sauce was crazy good! The batter on the fish was so light and the fries were so delicious.
Service was perfectly attentive.
We could eat no more!!
Wondering if all other choices would have been as perfect- we think YES!!
Don’t miss this place!!!

Great meal, and great service. We tried a bunch of small plates and everything was good, some things were outstanding. We especially enjoyed the tuna poke and the sriracha chicken thighs. Brussels sprouts were delicious. If we went back I wouldn’t bother with the sirloin for four - it was fine but boring compared to the other dishes. Looking forward to returning to try more of the menu.

This was our second time at Chroma, and we loved it both times. It's mostly small plates and every single thing we ordered was delicious. The service was great- Maycold (sp?) was fantastic, very accommodating. Will definitely be recommending Chroma to others and will be coming back. Thanks!!

Went there with our grown kids the weekend before Christmas! Had an awesome time. Food comes out sporadically which makes for relaxed dining with plenty of conversation time. Drinks were awesome and each dish was better than the one before. Loved everything but some of our favorites were the Brussels sprouts, gnocchi with Bolognese, the crab and artichoke dip and the bone marrow. Our server was outstanding. Wish I could remember her name. We will be back soon!

Disappointed to find the only decaf coffee available was favored——unacceptable.
Also the butterscotch bread pudding has greatly deteriorated since you began serving it. Tasteless warm
Bread. Time to find a new bread pudding recipe.
Don’t worry, we will be back.
