Second Time Is The Charm
Second time to sample the beet salad and the Mahi Mahi at Pounds and Ounces, and the restaurant did not disappoint! Quickly becoming my chelsea "go to." Plus, I got the best table in the whole restaurant.

Food was very tasty and there
Food was very tasty and there was a great variety for brunch, sweet and savory, healthy and indulgent. Only thing was the starter I ordered came with the meal and by then I was eating my hand. But I think it was just a mixup. Overall I'd recommend. Was crowded, a real Chelsea scene.

Cool spot with a lot of energy, gets a lil noisy so you will have to speak up. The crispy chicken and waffles was great, will definitely come thru again for brunch.

We were seated immediately
We were seated immediately for our 11:30am brunch reservation so that was good. The lobster corn dogs were good, but overpriced. I had the fried chicken eggs benedict which was really fried chicken steak in the middle of an eggs benedict on a waffle. I didn't care for the waffle, and the chicken was fried indeed but there wasn't much taste to the whole dish. I did like my side order of battered fries though (but who wouldn't?)My friend liked his burger so that was okay. The red velvet pancakes were too die for though! The music was waaay too loud for a Sunday morning, but when I asked them to turn the volume down, the waitress asked and they did, so thank you for that.
Overall, a good brunch place for once in a while.

Fun, upbeat vibe with really good food that adds a fun twist to American comfort food. Great for sharing small plates and large pitchers of specialty cocktails with friends.

Great food, great service!
If you like a funky, fun restaurant with a nice, concise menu, stop by! The music was a little on the loud side, but it's definitely both a bar and a restaurant, so that's okay. The burgers were phenomenal.

Cinco De Mayo
I'm not Mexican but this was truly an out of nyc experience. The mexican inspired tapas were awesome! The Margaritas were divine. Cant wait until the next event!

Perfect for any special occasion and would definitely go back!

A solid burger but only OK fries...
The burger was well constructed and tasted very good but the fries were rather plain and not the typical handcut, Belgium-type I prefer with an above average burger. But they were still good enough to not detract from the meal.

Duck Fried Rice
The seared tuna over duck fried rice is so fine. I was hungry, wanted to eat in Chelea and wanted comfort food. This place filled the bill for sure.

We had a delicious brunch at Pounds and Ounces. This is my go-to brunch spot when entertaining friends from out of town. Trendy restaurant, great food. I'd recommend the Crispy Chicken benedict. It's unreal.

Pounds & Ounces is great for a meal out when you're not up to cooking but don't want something too different. Food is good, not outstanding, but it's a fun place in the heart of Chelsea!

I had a wonderful experience. The waiter was pleasant and very attentive to our needs. The noise level was a little higher than I would have liked. Otherwise, I would definitely go back for the great food and ambiance.

At first glance you notice the hip and modern decor. Our server was genuinely nice to us from the moment we sat till the moment we walk out. He even help us find some bars for after dinner that we attended and they were awesome. Food was fab and delicious, different tastes and spices that we never really tried. I love this place and will continue to go there.

Putting on the pounds
I enjoyed everything at Pounds and Ounces! We got the Mac and cheese and Lobster corn Dogs. I am not a seafood lover but they were one of the best things I have ever had. The burgers were good to perfection. Everything about this night was great!

I live only a block away, so it is super convenient. But even if it were a borough away I would go their often. I really really love this restaurant, it's menu, it's prices. I take business peers their frequently, and also do it with friends for social occasions. Have a reservation to do the later on October 3. This visit on 09/23 was again delightful! PLUS OUR WAITER WAS SUPER CUTE!

Exceptional experience from start to finish. You must have the tuna tartare taco appetizer. While everything we had was outstanding, I would come back for them alone.

Great business lunch
I planned a business lunch with a new contact and I wanted a location that had stylish but comfortable atmosphere, good lunch selections and excellent but not invasive service. Pounds and Ounces worked on all those levels. We were made welcome and didn't lack for a thing but at no time did the servers interrupt the flow of our conversation. The beet and goat cheese salad with chicken was excellent and the portion size was perfect. It was relaxed and enjoyable, but was definitely conducive to a friendly business discussion.
Previously, I had sat at the bar with a friend for a post-brunch cocktail and we truly enjoyed it under those conditions as well. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to friends and colleagues.

The food was excellent but if you want to dine inside, you wouldn't be able to converse with your dinner partner(s), it is VERY loud. Otherwise the service is excellent and the food delicious. We'll be back.

Excellent but a little pricy
Staff was very attentive, food was excellent, but the place is a bit noisy.

We had reservations for a specific time, but the table was not ready for 20 minutes after. Also, one of the orders was served completely wrong. However, the staff was very apologetic and quick in handling the situation and provided us with complementary drinks and food. Ultimately, the food is very good and the ambiance is a lot of fun.

Fun Saturday brunch
A colleague of mine, Pierre, who is also a friend came to town for his yearly visit, so I recommended Pounds & Ounces based on my good previous experiences. We were not disappointed! We had our choice of which table to sit at so selected the back corner to have a place to chat and chew. Our server was friendly, if a tad over-attentive (better than being ignored, though) so we had all the coffee and drinks we could have needed. We selected two of the Benedicts - Pierre had the crispy chicken and I had the eggplant/tomato and both were very good. The asparagus fries appetizer that we shared was phenomenal ! Things became louder as brunch went on but it was a happy atmosphere so it was not a negative factor. In all, a terrific brunch!
