We visit this restaurant many times, but this time the food was very spice, it's look that they changed recipe or cook.

The food was amazing. The service in the beginning was great but once our server realized we weren't ordering anything else we had to hunt him down, he also forgot one of our party's orders and did nothing to appease her, she ate far after everyone was finished.

Chroma is always such a great place to go. We went for Magical Dining Month. We got SO MUCH FOOD. I highly recommend the Guava & Goat Cheese Flatbread, Crab & Artichoke Dip, Lobster Pad Thai & Crab Cakes. All of it was amazing & we will definitely go back again.

Wife and I snuck away from the kids for an anniversary meal. Food was delicious and filling. Nate our server was amazingly attentive and a pleasure. Only been here < 5 times and I’ve never been disappointed.

We were seated promptly. Our server was amazing and the food was out of this world! I would definitely recommend the lobster pad Thai, buffalo chicken wontons, the skirt steak salad and the tuna poke. Everything tasted so good! Their beer flight is the best value for drinking but my wife got a cocktail and that was delicious. I would definitely recommend this place!

Perfect small plate meal. Great food and drinks. Wonderful staff. Very nice location. Can get a a little noisy inside but not that big of concern. Just being picky.

We visited for Magical Dining month and the amount of food for $35 was amazing. We brought home 2 untouched plates! The goat cheese flatbread is amazing as well as the bread pudding dessert.

The food was really good. Portions were bigger than I imagined for “small plates”. It was also more family friendly than I expected.

We loved this restaurant and our server was very good. We arrived at an early hour for dinner and thank goodness for that because by 7:00 the noise level was beyond my tolerance. -we are an older group....and I hate having to raise my voice in conversation. If we stick with our early dinner time we will certainly be back! The food was excellent! It was a great evening. We enjoyed the music too!! -just couldn't talk over it. :)

Our friend Lee is a waiter here and we were excited to finally give the restaurant a shot while we were vacationing in Orlando. We couldn't have been more happy with our choice to try it given that Lee is absolutely amazing and the food was phenomenal. Not one dish disappointed and our 14 month old chowed down on almost everything that was brought out as well and enjoyed it. We felt bad when our son got a little over tired and started to voice his opinion so to anyone who we interrupted we do greatly apologize. However, we have already started to recommend Chroma to several people to visit because of the incredibly delicious food but the service and atmosphere as well. Chroma truly encompasses every definition of relaxed yet inspiring journey of food, drink, atmosphere and service. Thank you for an incredible meal and we absolutely cannot wait to come back again!

GNO we opted for magical dinning menu. We were not disappointed. We tried each of the appetizers offered you can pick 2. My 2 friends ordered the lobster pai Thai and I the. NY strip with spinach. My steak was cooked to perfection and wish a bigger portion was offered it was that good. We then ordered dessert which are small and just enough to not make you feel bad. Cappuccinos to complement our desserts.
Kristen our server was helpful and very Knowledgeable about the menu.

Really good. I know it’s family shareable style but I do wish at least some of the food came out together. The timing of everything seemed to be way off that night. Still enjoy it though!

WE waited half an hour and no one took our order, so we left. All the waiter ever did was give us water. He never returned to our table although he did serve many other tables.

Went to Chroma for Magical Dining. They completely forgot our two appetizers which shows up after the entrees were delivered. Three out of four of us ordered the bread pudding dessert and the three of us were sick that evening. Not sure if I would return to this restaurant. The music is also way too loud to carry in a conversation.

Our server Melanie did a great job helping choose the right foods and in the right quantity. She checked in at a nice interval. The Lamb sliders were PHENOMENAL! Good portion for tapas ie a little more than expected. Drinks were good. Noise level inside was too much so we chose to eat outside. Very busy and happening place. We definitely will go back!

Made a reservation through open table but they didn’t have it in their system. They luckily had availability right away. It’s loud but we’ve been several times before and expect it. Small bites so you can try a bunch of different things. Great tasting food. Wait staff is efficient. Cork fee is $25 so not bad. Overall a fun place to hang and eat.

Food was great - no gluten options and the kung pao calamari was fried which wasn’t indicated in the menu but very tasty.
Portions were good for tapas

Suggest reservations if arriving in the evening. Ask for one of their circle seats...very romantic...take their advise and only order 2 items each, these are Tapas (small plates). If still hungry order more. Be careful they have 3 oz wines and they increase in $ for each size up.
