We celebrated my husband’s birthday here and it was fantastic! Some of the freshest oysters we’ve ever had! Connecticut lobster roll was outstanding! The whole steamed lobster was to die for! Cocktails were great, as was the service! Cute & cozy restaurant with A-1 food, drinks, ambience, & service! We will definitely return and highly recommend!

We have been dining here for several years. It’s one of our favorites. The food is outstanding and the service is excellent. Our favorites are the raw bar, market fish, scallops, lobster rolls. The fries are the best. On this visit, we were fortunate to speak with one of the chefs and told him one of our favorite foods was not on the menu. To our surprise, we were served the dish without even asking. He listened and responded on the spot. That’s why we love this place. It’s the best.

The food and drink are ethereal and the service is also quite good. The tables are very close together, but hey, this is New York.

Get the Connecticut-style lobster roll if you can't decide between the two options, and then thank me later!

Service was abysmal, tons of staff but guests were waiting and waiting while they milled around busy? And god knows how they could overlook the lobster when they prepare thousands of them a day next door. Fish and chips was beyond bad. Will leave this place for the tourists...poor tourists.

Made a reservation and when I arrived and asked for a particular table that was empty, I was told I can sit there for 30 minutes. I didn't want to have a 30min dinner and asked for the manager who was accommodating.The person at the door was rude and uncaring.

Extremely crowded. Service was quick and they tried to be attentive but our bread was forgotten and had to be reminded. Took a while to get our second glass of wine. The food was excellent and oysters were fresh. We had a dozen oysters, toasted trout starter, lobster starter, crabs, and dumplings. All were excellent and would go back for food but unsure if I will set foot again in Chelsea Market (just too crowded for me). Highly recommended restaurant!

I usually don't go to CM (seems touristy) but C&P was recommended by a friend who is very thing but touristy. Food was excellent and the service great. Wine was reasonable and good. Would go back. Its small, linear with tables along the opposite wall from the bar so you need to know that.

We shared an octopus starter which was fantastic, followed by a Catalan fish stew, which was more like a soup, but with a lobster broth base, and pieces of fish, prawns, mussels and potatoes, still absolutely delicious. Also accompanied by lovely toasted ciabatta.

3人で利用しました。蓋付きの鍋にロブスターがまるまる一匹と、貝が何種類かとポテトなどが入った、スープたっぷりのオーブン焼きのような料理を頼みました。2人はロブスター初だったのですが、とてもおいしくいただけました。全く泥臭さも無く、ハサミや身の部分はぷりっとしていて、素材のだしがよく出たスープと一緒に食べるとまた絶品でした。別の所で食べた事がある在住者も、ここは当たりと言っていました。
料理は2人前を3人で分けたのですが、量がたっぷりで、もったいないのですが残してしまいました。(残った分は持ち帰り可です。冷蔵庫のないホテル泊のため断念)持ち帰って締めのリゾットや麺にしたら絶対おいしいと思います。
店の雰囲気はカジュアルでおしゃれな感じで、店員さんもフレンドリーで気軽においしい食事が楽しめました。NYにまた来る事があれば、絶対に再来したいお店です。

This seafood-focused place is a true gem! It's connected with the adjacent Lobster Place seafood store, which is one of the best stores in town for their huge selection of the freshest seafood of all types. The four of us split a variety of starters and appetizers, all of which were very well executed. For our entrees, two us ordered the market fish of the day (black bass), which was cooked to perfection and was accompanied by a wonderful fresh pea risotto. The other two shared the clam bake, which consisted of littleneck clams, 1.5lb maine lobster, mussels, shrimp, dickson's sausage, corn on the cob and fingerling potatoes - a feast! The wine list is short, but well selected, featuring a good mix of whites (our Greek wine was perfect with the meal), along with a handful of reds. Our server was friendly and very knowledgeable about both the menu and the wine list - and even brought us an additional starter when there was a little wait for the entrees, as the clam bake takes a while to prepare. The space is quite small, so be sure to make reservations for dinner.

Great food. Preffered to sit right in front of the oyster shuckers. Oysters were very fresh. Branzino was cooked perfectly. Fries were great. Clam chowder was one of the best I ever had. Octopus serving was very, very small. It was the only disappointing dish.

Great place. Great Service. Ordered the Penchant Seafood Tower and wasn't disappointed. The octopus small plate was also great. Would become a go-to place to seafood. Wasn't too pricey, and had a lot of great raw bar options.

Tip: dont order the lobster from the raw bar because its served chilled. Order the whole lobster from the entrees for a freshly steamed/grilled lobster.

Could recommend the ocotpus for appetizer/small plate.
