But not too! Was looking for a
place to meet friends for brunch and came upon The Chester. I know the neighborhood and hotel and thought it could be too loud, trendy and given the first two usually means mediocre food. The reality is it was all of the above but not too much of anything - including loud. There were families with young children and the staff accommodated and the kids had fun- middle age (myself included) overall the food was good - was it great, no? But solidly good - reality is I went as much for the company as the food and it all worked out fine."

The ambience was
everything...perfect spot for a romantic night"

Came here on a Saturday night with
a group of friends on a whim. We were lured in by the decadent décor -- lovely chandeliers in a beautiful hall and a romantically lit tented area adorned in flowers. The staff was incredibly attentive and knowledgeable about the menu -- the candied bacon is to die for, and the Atlantic Cod is not to be missed. The bar was filled with a lively, cocktail-sipping crowd by the time we finished dinner. We would have stayed if we didn't have to meet other friends elsewhere! Will definitely be back!"

We made last minute reservations
at The Chester and expected it to be pretty good. To our great surprise it was more than pretty good; it was outstanding. You know it's pretty hard for a restaurant to make you feel "at home", but it worked here - and made the night even more pleasurable. Food quality was great, service was simply terrific and I highly recommend this restaurant."

Seems to be a celebrity hang, but
not sure why. The service was beyond terrible, the place was empty, had a reservation and had to wait forever for a table. The menu was very limited, the waffle came out ice cold and was not very good. I would not go back."

I was really looking forward to a
casual restaurant from Sam Hazen, but his terrific work at Veritas did not translate to The Chester. A cold room (in many ways) and, for the most part, pretty mediocre food. Maybe you can chalk it up to it being the day after Thanksgiving (there were barely 6 customers there, and the bar was empty), but I am not running back very soon."

Decided to check out The Chester
for lunch. We had high hopes with it being a new restaurant in a fun location. Unfortunately the lack of service overshadowed the experience. The hostess was busy on a personal call during check in; server took our drink order and disappeared - we had to walk over to get them ourselves; when we were ready to order we were advised several items we wanted were no longer available (might be time to update that new menu); & getting the check was an ordeal too. All of this said, we were the "only" table there for 20min and then only four more tables served during lunch, so they were far from busy. The manager was also completely disengaged. Hopefully they can work out these issues, b/c the food was tasty!"

Was looking forward to checking
out the newest Gansevoort restaurant as a friend stays there often. Big disappointment. Our server formulaically told us repeatedly that the cod special was very "healthy" (farmed fish is never "healthy"). She was uncooperative or uneducated about requests and a manager intervened. Could have overlooked the untrained server if the food was worth it. While the mac and cheese was delish (it's mac and cheese!!), the rest was simply ok, or not edible. How do you mess up kale? But it had odd flavors and I just couldn't eat it. And my friend said the devilled eggs were awful, she left half the dish untouched. Other dishes were barely adequate. When there are so many other options in this hood, I'd skip it."

Just OK........fine to meet some
friends for a casual dinner out. Space is small but nice. Food is OK, nothing special. I was meeting a group of former co-workers & it was a perfect spot for that. If you are not expecting an amazing meal & need a convenient location to meet, I would recommend."

Runa tartare was too salty while
oysters weren't as fresh as I would Like. The food is good but needs some refinement."

Speckled with modern décor of
chandeliers and sleek, black tables the ambience is just enough meatpacking district lux. Their brunch menu included what has to be the best tasting pancakes I have ever had the pleasure of eating. Topped with flavorful berries and fresh crème, the red velvet pancakes are not easily pushed aside, I suggest you split them a friend to prevent you devouring every last bite."
