A word from Hotel Chantelle
One of Manhattan’s rare rooftop eateries, this LESer flaunts 360-degree Downtown Outdoor Scene paired with midpriced New French-American eats; a retractable glass roof makes it an all-seasons affair, and two lounges downstairs are just the thing for after-dinner cocktailing.

Diner Reviews
  • "Even though we waited about 45 minutes to be seated, the staff was very nice and attentive. We had drinks at the bar while we waited...who can complain about 92 cent cocktails! The food was absolutely delish, all three entrees that we ordered were amazing! Definitely coming back!"

  • "Picked this spot to check out the scene and enjoy eating outside on the rooftop on a nice night - the rooftop is a great setting, fun place to hang out. Too loud for an intimate dinner, but wasn't so crowded that it was uncomfortable. The service staff was pleasant and did a good job despite being busy. The food, on the other hand...atrocious. The oysters were old, the lobster roll should be renamed the mayonnaise roll, the fish tacos were about average, and the hanger steak was terrible. Recommend this place highly, good bar scene and outdoor drinks on the rooftop. For dinner, you're better off picking up something out of the trash can on your way there..."

  • "We went for dinner on a beautiful summer night. It was a pretty place with a busy bar scene. Drinks were great but the food was ok. Probably won't go back because it isn't close to me."

  • "Extremely mediocre food..empty place with insanely loud music. Bartender poured less than an ounce on first drink (.75)"

  • "I went to Hotel Chantelle with a group of friends to celebrate my birthday and I was not disappointed. It was my first time there and I fell completely in love with the decor, seating, music, drinks and food. I made reservations for 6:00pm, but arrived over a half hour late and they still honored my reservation ... customer service was excellent from start to finish. My guests loved Hotel Chantelle, the atmosphere was vibrant and everyone was so welcoming. My birthday celebration was better than I expected! I will definitely visit this restaurant again. Rooftop, in one word, ideal!!"

  • "Overall, it was a nice time. The food was amazing and our bartender (who was from California) was Awesome and there aren't enough characters allowed in this review to praise him. However, the woman who greeted us at the door was more than rude and we did feel rushed to leave. After eating we were told, "Another party needs this table." while we were still having cocktails. It would have been a bit nicer if we were kindly asked to relocate to the bar. As it stood, we basically felt that we just needed to leave."

  • "Recently went to Hotel Chantelle for Sunday brunch. Hostesses / bartender / server were all super friendly. Food was great and drinks (which were half off for brunch) were even better. The open air rooftop venue was great and a jazz band enhanced the experience. Will definitely be going back."

  • "Met some friends for brunch. Great atmosphere on the rooftop of a 3- story walk up. The live jazz made it fun and vibrant. Food was quite delicious and the menu offered something for everyone. It's a younger crowd, but they didn't pay any mind to my foursome of 50 year olds. Just know the tables are very close together."

  • "We had a lovely table on the rooftop and the venue was even better than we had hoped for! our waiter was an absolute pleasure... the food divine! we shared the grilled octopus and the duck pate... the octopus was even better than at our favorite Greek restaurant, which is really saying something! We WILL be back!"

  • "I really like this dimly lit, speak-easy lounge on the LES. They offer $8 cocktails during happy hour and they're pretty good. Try their Pineapple Express is you like your drink with a little kick. For appetizers, I ordered the crispy pork belly which had the right amount of crunch and tenderness along with the thin crust, white truffle pizza topped with parmesian shavings and arugula. Both apps are a must to try. Also, there's a jazz lounge singer during the evening hours so I have to come back and experience the entertainment. No cover charge either!"

  • "The terrace at Hotel Chantelle makes you feel, after just a few minutes, as if you've been transported away from New York, and closer to some time and some place in Paris. The vintage mosaic floor, the salvaged wrought iron fence surrounding the rooftop area, the gorgeous vintage bar... it's all beautiful. The food is pretty great –yet not necessarily the defining feature. The brunch drinks are pretty good, chief among them the bloody mary. The real beauty in this place is Dandy Wellington and his jazz band (Tue nights and Saturday for brunch), as well as the collection of patrons looking good and dressed to kill."

  • "The setting at Hotel Chantelle is beautiful - a well decorated rooftop. The jazz band at brunch was incredible too. They also have great brunch cocktails at great prices. That's where is changes. Our waiter was good. However, another table's waitress moved the shade from covering our table to covering one of hers, and walked off with a shrug when I complained. The food was fine but not outstanding. All in all, it was fine, but not a place I'd return."

  • "Came here on Father's Day and we got seated right away. We came with a baby in a car seat and we were given a very convenient spot. The music was good but loud and it may have been the reason for a mixup of our order. The food was delicious and my hubby loved his cocktails. The only thing he mentioned is that the minisa coukd have ised a hit more oj. The rooftop atmosphere is very nice. Cozy and down to earth. We look forward to coming back again some day."

  • "Great spot, friendly staff, but not overly attentive, don't go in with high expectations of the service and you'll be fine. The food is good. The venue is great, come here with a group, and stay for the nightlife after dinner."

  • "Hotel Chantelle's glass enclosed rooftop is a nice place to meet a friend for brunch and a few drinks. Their cocktails are discounted, the only catch being an automatic 15% gratuity, but the service absolutely warranted that kind of tip. The food was good - I had a burger with avocado puree which was a nice touch. We were sat directly next to the live band, which made conversation a bit hard, so you may want to request a table a bit further."

  • "Great place for brunch. The lobster eggs benedict was delicious! The ambience and interior design were great. It reminded me of Paris!"

  • "This is a great spot to bring guests. An amazing jazz band plays during brunch and the environment is energetic. I don't think the food is amazing. It's very mediocre. There really isn't too much variety. The smoked salmon entree came with bagel crisps instead of a bagel. The steak and eggs doesn't come with french fries, but potato chips. The french fries are amazing and if it actually came with the steak, I would give it two thumbs up. All the other entrees are very typical. The service can be dodgy. I also have had a difficult time on the rooftop. It's either been too cold or too hot. They don't have enough umbrellas, v/v they don't have space heaters. So that's a caveat if you plan to go. Other than that, it's cool."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "Be sure to request the roof in your reservation, or they will seat you downstairs in the dark dining room. The roof is gorgeous, but shade is hard to come by and it gets pretty hot in the direct sun. The live jazz band was wonderful! The hostess was not friendly at all, but the server made up for it. I would recommend this location for a boozy brunch as they have a small selection of cocktails for 92 cents. There are also more drink options at a higher price point, but still very affordable."

  • "The food is just delicious. I've been here on several occasions and never disappointed. I believe I've tried just about everything on the menu. Also the late night entertainment is fantastic on Friday nights."

  • "I went with my boyfriend with a travelzoo deal for 4 cocktails and 2 appetizers. We got there on the early side and the bar was fairly empty, which was nice. By the time we left (7ish) it was getting busy. The sun was shinning and the roof top is beautiful. Cocktails were solid and good was great. I would definitely recommend. Hope to go back for brunch. They have a good happy hour too, 5-8pm 1/2 price some cocktails, beer and wine. "

  • "It's not a hotel but you'll wish you could stay. Staff is excellent and friendly; everyone was more than accommodating. Bartender made delicious custom drinks to order, and really knew his craft. Food was fabulous and the wait staff was energetic and friendly. I would've stayed if I could but I'll definitely be back. And boo to all the nahsayers giving bad reviews just because they couldn't get in, make a reservation on opentable and you won't have that problem."

  • "I love this place for dancing and thought I'd give their brunch a try for my birthday. The staff was amazing (I think I changed my reservation three different times and each time the staff was accommodating). Food was good. The ceviche had the perfect amount of spice to it and the truffle pizza was amazing. We'll be back for sure."

  • "The rooftop is beautiful and further enhanced by the addition of a live jazz band. However, the food is bland and the famed 92 cent cocktails are worth exactly 92 cents. You should come here for the vibe -- nothing more, nothing less. "

  • "The food was very good - the steak frites has a delightful shallot sauce and the super skinny fries are perfect. We ate upstairs, but unfortunately the roof was already closed. I would recommend going earlier in the evening if you want to eat with a normal energetic vibe (could not hear a word my friends said) and don't want the bar-goers spilling all over your table. That said, the bar upstairs is great and the drinks are well-made. "

  • "My wife and I showed up at 11:20 with an 11:30 reservation. Employees start showing up at the door at 11:25 and they finally opened at 11:40. We had to rooftop deck where the employees don't have a clue what they're doing. About ten minutes later we are finally led to a table she tries to sit us at the one table in pure sun. We're the second group and had reservations, no thanks. At this point we are SERIOUSLY considering going somewhere else. Glad we didn't. The waitress was very good and the food was definitely top notch. Due to their drink specials they compute the 15% tip based on the standard prices. While annoying this likely has to do with too many cheap people stiffing the servers."

  • "The live jazz band was a bit loud, but we knew about that before I made reservations, we've been here before. This place is high energy, great food, good drink deals. The rooftop is a great space, intimate while also open and airy. If you want a quiet brunch spot, this isn't for you. If you want to go out with friends in an upbeat setting that will leave you with a full tummy and a big smile, this is the place. "

  • "We were a party of 4 and had an early dinner (6pm) on a saturday night. The place was about 1/2 full, but there were some people at the bar as well. It was raining so the roof was on, but it had a cool greenhouse type effect. It seemed like it would be really busy later on. The food was great, we ordered about 1 of everything on the app list. Lobster roll minis and deviled eggs were awesome. Also really loved the cinnamon puff dessert. The drinks were delish and strong. And some of them were 1/2 priced until 8pm. Our server was very friendly and attentive. I'd definitely go back. "
