    We dined outside at a table on the sidewalk. Noise level of course was loud but it was also loud with a party happening inside. They were short of help and we were told that right away. Service was fair but expected. The food was good. Not spectacular but a pleasant enough quick dining experience. We would return. Maybe during the week.

    Not sure how but the French onion soup was cold, then my disgusting chicken fajita was cold as well, I guess I discovered they don’t know how to cook. My wife’s cheesesteak was very good and so was my son’s burger, maybe they didn’t like me. 😉

    As always a great place to go with excellent service and very friendly atmosphere. A mainstay for us, great house mixed drinks and great food as well. The tuna tataki, seafood pasta and the filet tip gorgonzolas are delicious. G Torres

    Overall, pretty basic bar food. It was disappointing that the waitresses were making cocktails. I ordered an Old Fashioned that was pretty much bourbon with some bitters in it.

    We were seated in the street and our server was overwhelmed and didn’t appear to be getting any support from plentiful other servers in the immediate area. The food took over an hour to arrive. Some items were missing from the cheese plate.

    Went to celebrate my son’s graduation, had never been here before. Made a reservation in advanced and had no issues making the reservation. Table they put us at was in the bar area which had a noisy crowd and live music. If I was looking to hang out in a bar, the environment would have been fine but we were looking to have a late dinner with our family and it was really hard to converse with each other. Saw there was a room away from the bar which probably would have been much better, not sure why we were not seated there. Food was really good and everyone enjoyed what they ordered.

    Went for lunch on Mother's day and ordered off the menu, rather than the buffet brunch. Sandwiches / Burgers were good, chips were fancy but tasteless. The decor was lacking - the vinyl in my booth was splitting open.

    We took my wife out for Mother’s Day. When we arrived the hostess looked confused when I said I had reservations, wrote the last name on a piece of paper with a crayon and then she sat us at the table just inside the front door. Took 15 minutes for a the waitress to come. We over heard the bar tender talking to a couple about specials, which we never were told they even had specials. The food was the only good part. The service was very poor which made it not a great experience.

    My wife’s filet steak was originally undercooked, that was corrected very quickly, however the steak was tough, this was the second time in a little over a week that the steak my wife ordered was tough, we won’t order steak again. My Manhattan cost me $14., I mentioned to the waitress that we were just here about a week ago and I paid $11, she said that was what came up when she typed in my order. They also told us about various desserts that we ordered,only to be advised that they ran out. It was a disappointing night out with friends,

    Reservation was a joke. We couldn't find a hostess & finally found a waitress & told her we had a reservation. She directed us to a table by the window & bar. Only one other table was taken. Our table had no settings or menus. No one acknowledged us & the waitress starting setting a table near us. The bar was busy - barmaid did not acknowledge us either. After 20 minutes we left.

    We ate in the bar area and it's what you can normally expect from dining in a bar. Solid bar food and we did have a nice table by an open window/storefront by the sidewalk. Better than average bar food.

    This was my first visit to Chambers 19. I was delighted to find that the food was quite good as was service. We were dining just before the height of the lunch hour so the restaurant was rather empty and quiet. Their is a reasonable draft beer list, though there was no list for patrons to review. The facility is an older one from a early era, which id part of its charm. My first visit was a business lunch; I look forward to returning with my wife.

    We found this little gem of a place on open table while looking for a new place to eat nearby that wasn’t a chain. Upon entering, it appeared to be more of a bar like atmosphere however in the back they have a small dining area that is kid friendly. The staff was great and the food was absolutely excellent (I had the goat cheese brûlée burger and my husband had the Taylor burger). We will definitely be back and maybe next time a little later so we can enjoy the live music they have later in the evening.
