I loved the atmosphere and the energy. The drinks were amazing; however, the food took an hour to be delivered. Once I received my food the crab legs were room temperature. That said, I would go there again, but just for the drinks and the vibe!

Chelsea House wasn’t what I expected. I took my friend for her birthday. The service was very slow and no one came over to to our table. I could understand if it was busy but it was pretty empty. We waited patiently but no one came. The server apologized for not coming over to our table. I ordered the Fishermen’s boil. The lobster was tasty but the shrimp was a little dry. The lobster mac and cheese was delicious. The drinks were also made well. Unfortunately the steak was not cooked as ordered and nobody came over to ask how we were. The matron did take it off our bill which was greatly appreciated. Overall our experience at the Chelsea House was ok.

Chelsea House was spectacular! From the greeting when we entered, the attentiveness of our server and the artistry of the bartender. We ordered oysters and shrimp from the raw bar. For dinner, we had Steak, Lobster Boil and a Beyond Burger. All were delicious! Would definitely recommend!

This is a fairly new restaurant that doesn’t have the staff to accommodate the Guest. Had a 9pm birthday reservation and was told We had to wait because they had no tables. Waited a hour. Food and drinks took a long time to order and to come out. When food came out there were missing items and food was cold. I won’t be coming back.

Overall, I was very disappointed in this place, despite some really good reviews on here. Upon entry, you can see the place isn't much for ambience, which is fine since you don't eat ambience. But it wasn't particularly comfortable. The (loud) music and art isn't my taste, but I'm getting to an age where I guess I don't know what "cool" is anymore. The Insta-ready entrance was a red-flag.

That said, the food was just "okay," and for the money, was kinda bad. Though the oysters were $2 each, they were not shucked. There was only a cocktail sauce we had to mix, no mignonette, and they were kinda bland. We split a boil, which the waiter said was perfectly splittable, but we left hungry. The crab within it came out cold, the shrimp was okay, and the lobster tail was delicious. It wasn't bad enough to send back and waste. We got a cocktail each, which were alright but mostly sugar. Was the meal okay? Sure, but it bordered on bad. And it certainly wasn't worth $160k.

This place is severely understaffed, ridiculously long wait time for a drink and a glass of soda. Even longer wait for appetizers and the entree. Steak was beyond well done. They did take the drink and his meal off the bill. My boyfriend was unable to eat his meal I will never eat here agian!!!! They need to advise patrons of when the kitchen is backed up. If we would have known we would have skipped the appetizer. Asked for the manager twice, took her 15 or so minutes to come out. Everyone I'm that place last night food and drinks, took way too long to arrive

The wait for your food was insane. Got a steak with no utensils, one appetizer arrived the other came when right before the entree’s came out. No communication on what the hold up was.

This has been a popular spot on instagram and not far from my home . The food was AMAZING, the drinks were great. Great music I loved it only issue was it took over an hour for the appetizers to come out and slightly unorganized nobody knew who took our order . But things happen. The place was beautiful and I will be back with my friends !

Great food options, vibes, energy but the food lacks seasoning and flavor.
Steak needed to be marinated in seasoning hours before cooking.

Fries were undercooked.

Lobster was partially burnt.

Limited options with steak. Rice was the only option and wasn’t able to change it out for fries instead.

The drinks were good.

The customer service was okay but very slow.

You know the restaurants that you frequent because food and service are good, and it's just overall a vibe? This is not that!

Smaller space. The food quality was not as good as expected. My party sent back an appetizer that was not hot only to have it come back out after the entrees were served and still did not taste good.

Nothing about the experience compelled me to want to go back.

Oh and the bathrooms were just I’m grateful for. Overall we had a great time and we will definitely be back soon!
