great new place in Chelsea Market
Clams were fantastic. Also would recommend the crab cake. If you love seafood, this is an excellent choice.

Great new add to Chelsea Market
Great selection of oysters. Server was knowledgeable about the menu and made some good suggestions. Lobster roll was good (it wasn't Luke's but it was good) and the fish tacos, although a little small, were tasty. Great atmosphere too.

I would rank the lobster roll
I would rank the lobster roll right up there with the best of them and offering them in two different preparations -- CT and ME (drawn butter vs. mayo) -- is a great option. Wonderful raw bar; the littlenecks tasted like summer. I appreciated that the noise level was manageable and that I didn't have to shout all night. Finishing the meal with complimentary orange creamsicle ice cream was just right.

Wow, unbelievably good!
I had been wanting to try this new restaurant in Chelsea Market which is an outgrowth of Lobster Place for some time. I was expecting a relatively unsophisticated experience; that it was not! This place rivals any of the free-standing upscale places in the city. The staff was extremely accommodating, We had oysters to start which came super quickly and were delicious. The trio of deviled eggs was also excellent with lobster, crab and smoked salmon. The yellowtail crudo was sublime, served on a charred peaches and finished with yuzu. The octopus carpaccio was outstanding and unique with thinly sliced 6" rounds of compressed octopus served with an arugula salad with grapefruit. A bit expensive, but we will surely be back for more!

This place serves seafood - fresh and tasty as it gets! Highly recommend the deviled eggs and the grilled lobster. The seafood comes fresh from their seafood market next door.

Lobster Go To at Chelsea Market
Dinner was very good. The clam toast and fresh shrimp appetizers were outstanding.The grilled lobster was prepared just as I requested, not to blackened and still moist. One of the people in our party was very pleased with the fish and chips. Everyone enjoyed their dinners. The only disappointment was the corn...not as good as we had hoped. We will definitely return.
Service was great too. The manager that night saw to it that we were comfortable, for it is noisy in the front of the restaurant and when the table came available moved us to the back after we were all seated,

Best new seafood restaurant in town
What's more to say? The purveyors of the Lobster Place in the Chelsea Market who sell the best fish in NYC to scores of restaurants have opened their own place and the food is delicious. The raw bar is by far the best I have ever had, and the menu selections are delicious. A must have the is the clam toast appetizer!

The oysters were amazing, but paled in the light of the scallop dish. Lightly seared, served with mushrooms and squash, they were elegant and savory. This was a great place.

Enjoyed everything we had
Enjoyed everything we had - fish & chips, clambake and fish tacos. Liked the one appetizer we had, clam toast, but it wasn't chopped clams, as we had been told. Excellent/caring server, despite the small bit of misinformation.

We stumbled upon this place after we couldn't get reservations at a nearby hot spot. We are so grateful we landed here. It was a small place, we were seated very close to neighboring couples but it didn't take away from our experience. It actually added to it. Our lobster came fresh from the market next door. Our waiter was attentive and concerned with discussing our interests in the menu and made suggestions that we enjoyed. The scallops were hands down our favorite entree but there wasn't a thing wrong with the lobster. This was a great find.

The menu isn't long, but the food is absolutely delicious and the fish perfectly prepared and impeccably fresh. Do not miss the oysters, which are sparklingly clean and briny from a balanced list of mostly east cost selections, served with the right classic sauces. Nothing is overdone, letting the central ingredient star. I haven't had skate wine for awhile, and it was great, as were my friend's scallops. I didn't care there was only one option for dessert, which we didn't order, but lack of coffee or an espresso machine is a little disappointing.

The raw bar is amazing. For an area that attracts tourists, the prices are great. From the moment you walk in, every member of the staff is very attentive and friendly.

I came for the happy hour oysters, which were all very fresh and delicious. Our waitress was very friendly and accommodating and the service was quick with our orders and water refills.
