Reviews for the book were largely positive. Phil Thomas, writing for the San Francisco Examiner wrote, "In 'Chance Meetings,' a witty, perceptive memoir, Saroyan reflects on some of the stragglers he encountered in his more than 60 years and did not forget." and "Saroyan isn't read as much as he used to be. 'Chance Meetings' shows once again that he should be."
Writing for The Journal Herald, Trudy Krisher noted: "Picking up a work by Saroyan is like having a baby in the house. We cherish his sense of wonder, his purity of spirit, his simple faith in his own discoveries. And we're happy for a little while that he - and we - won't have to face the truth just yet."
