The building was nicely renovated and looks great. The service was very good. The food, however, was grossly overpriced and just "okay." There are many other places with great ambiance and reasonably priced food. I will not return to the Chapman House.

Reservations were made for a birthday dinner celebration, the waiter seemed uninformed about the menu items and signature drinks. Two of the signature drinks were unavailable, so we settled on others. We ordered an appetizer, two entrees, two sides and a prix fixe menu option....More

The Chapman house is a dining experience. The entree's are all unique, well presented and tasty. Nothing is average (including the bill). Service is very good. Decent choice of wines and beverages. Would avoid the high tops but there are other choices of tables. Nice...More
