One of the Chelsea Hotel’s signature restaurants and the focal point of the hotel’s social scene & destination is the 5th Floor. Dining on the 5th offers a fresh take on a steakhouse, in a setting evocative of a 1920's supper club. Suited with a white grand piano in the cocktail lounge with a curvilinear bar, Dining on the 5th is decorated with classic black & white photographs of 1920's in Atlantic City. It features elevated Hollywood-style booths where every table is an ocean view, adding a touch of grandeur to every meal.

Worst restaurant. Bad food feels like the restaurant is going to go out of business.

Complained to the manager and his response was we are only open for dinner on Friday and Saturday and thank you for your comments.

We arrived for an early dinner as we were catching a show across town. They don't open until 5 however they were very accommodating allowing us to start out with a few drinks at the bar. The overall feel of the place as described as an upscale dining experience. Our server Justin was impeccable and spot on being one of the best servers I've ever had. The downside were the other "guests" as we were dining there were two tables seated one had a guy wearing a tank top and the other had a couple that looked like they just rolled out of bed. Understanding this is a resort, on the beach when you are supposed to have an UPSCALE dining experience you expect an UPSCALE experience. Enforcing a dress code past the bar would have been enough to earn five stars across the board. We were looking for a nice dining experience you can't get at Applebee's.

I have been here several times and this time I was greatly disappointed. The service was horrible the food just OK.... I expected much better. I will be taking it off my top 5 list.

Having made some special trips to Las Vegas, Chicago, NYC, Atlanta, and now to Atlantic City and having tried what is suppose to be the best Steak House in the city. I was rather disappointed in the Chelsea Prime. My first steak was grossly overcook and when my second steak arrived it was cooked to a more closer medium temperature but I felt the overall quality of beef to be lacking as compared to some other great steak houses I've been too. The service was excellent and the overall atmosphere was very good. Just a shame the food didn't match up to the overall feel of the restaurant.

The food was excellant and beautifully presented. The service was poor. We recieve our cocktails after we received our appetizers and our bottle of wine came well after we recived out entre. It was so bad, I thought we would be done our dinner before the wine arrived. There was only one waiter and bus boy on, but the resturant was not that crowded.

Fabulous, we had Caviar - overlooking the Ocean. Wine list is extensive, has prices for everyone. We had one in our party w/health issues and also a Teenager, the staff was very accomidating. Overall great experience, when we go back to AC, definitely going again.

This was my third time at Chelsea Prime and I must say I was disappointed. The chopped salad had changed in flavor and too many onions. The side dish of corn was not as sweet as I have had previously.

The drinks were very good, the service was excellent but for the cost of the meal I felt the wonderful flavors I had encountered in my previous times at the restaurant were no longer present.

I went to Chelsea Prime for my 1st year wedding anniversay & I could not have been more pleased with the restauran as a whole. It has sweeping views of the ocean, romantic ambiance, the whole nine! The food was was the most flavorful, top-quality, most delicious food I have ever tasted (not exaggerating). The menu is pricey, but that's how much it would cost for an upscale restaurant anywhere. It's worth every bit of what we paid. If you decide to visit Chelsea Prime, you will not be disappointed.

My husband and I chose this restaurant to celebrate our 11th anniversary. We thought that the food would be excellent since the restaurant can not rely on the gamblers. It took over a half hour for them to find the wine we chose. Meanwhile, we were served burnt fried almost black gnocchi with roasted asparagus and roasted carrots, even though the menu said gnocchi with spring peas. We both ordered the prime NY Strip. The steaks were "gummy" and gross. I felt bad for the cow that sacrificed its parts because we couldn't eat a bite. We were seeing a show right after dinner and had no time to get new steaks. Thank goodness the rolls and butter were good so at least we had eaten before the show.

I couldn't believe how nice it was inside. The food was great and I really enjoyed my night. The look over the ocean was beautiful.

Seems to be going downhill. This is the fourth time we've dined here in the last 15 months. The first time back in mid 2011 was excellent. Since then the food and service have steadily declined. The staff seems like they really try, but yet it just doesn't really come together very well.
