Was here on tuesday. Excellent food. Outstanding lobsterroll and steamed lobster. Great service.
Except the guy at the door. No idea what his job was. Being friendly was'nt it. Serving people was'nt it, opening the door was'nt it. Anybody?
My advice? Loose him.

Our second time there and everything was absolutely amazing—the food and the ambiance were to perfection! We had fish and chips, the market fish special, and key lime pie for the birthday boy and it was incredible! The host and waitstaff were all gracious and very accommodating! I highly recommend to anyone.

Small place but cozy. The seafood was fresh and delicious. We had the shrimp and lobster dumplings as an appetizer and lobster pho for dinner. Both were delish.
Looking forward to returning!

Right in the middle of Chelsea Market, restaurant is small and tables are close together. Very noisy. But go for the fresh seafood, it is outstanding! Dorado in salt and queen snapper, both awesome meals. Great for oysters.

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.

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.
