It's been a couple of years since at here and it's not what it used to be. There are other brunch places in Chelsea that I would recommend over Tipsy. I don't recommend coming here unless you really want the biscuit and gravy. Food is average.

Decent spot with southern influenced comfort food. They recently changed the menu, so be aware that the menus on their website [or Seamless or OpenTable, etc.] might not match the actual menu. We came for Chicken & Waffles, and alas they didn't have them.

The Biscuit Bomb dishes were great, definitely their pièce de résistance. The coffee was a little overpriced, at $5 a cup [with refills, granted...] So if you gulp down the coffee, you might have to flag your waiter/waitress often. Other than that, great place!

Recommended by a friend. Good Southern comfort food. Shrimp and grits were very good, and the biscuits were wonderful. Short ribs were very good, but could have used a touch more seasoning. Limited wines by the glass, but good quality. I’d go there again.

Warning to those with food allergies. Tipsy Parson has great ambiance and delicious food, but we were really disappointed when we went for dinner and the waiter and kitchen staff failed to heed our warning that we had a nut allergy at the table and served us a salad with walnuts mixed in throughout, despite the fact that we asked specifically for those nuts to be left out of the salad. Not seeing the nuts, my friend took one bite of his food and began having an allergic reaction. We notified the waiter, and he checked the ingredients of the meal and told us there were no nuts in the food and said, "I'm sorry you're not feeling well." Knowing that my friend was having an actual allergic reaction and not just that he was feeling unwell, we looked more closely at our salad and saw the nuts. We told the waiter and he took the salad off our bill, which was kind, but given the potential harm to my friend had he actually eaten any of the walnuts, I wish the waitstaff and kitchen had double checked the food before it was served to our table. Will not be returning.

What limited brunch menu they have is good, but need more year-round standards like Belgian waffles. Coffee and service were excellent. But it's a bit expensive for a shabby chic brunch place on 9th Avenue.

While we have been here several times this was our first visit after a slight rearrangement of the entrance area - which works. The foos was great - the service attentive and given our theater tickets thoughtful - great wines by the glass

The only downer is when the back room has a large group forget about social conversation - indeed our next visit we will opt for the tables by the bar which we usually avoid because of the noise

The staff and management at Tipsy is stellar. One year ago my wife and I and 15 of our friends and family celebrated our wedding. One year later the people at Tipsy were falling over themselves to make our anniversary perfect. Any night of the week is superb st Tipsy. And they will go the extra mile if you let them there is any kind of special occasion. Their manager that night said to me “we take this stuff seriously” as she was giggling and handing us a free dessert. We will be spending every anniversary at Tipsy Parson. No doubt!

Food was good but not as great as the last time we were there in November. Felt a little bland in comparison. The service was definitely lacking. Our waiter seemed like he was going through the motions.

We had a great brunch here on Sunday. Only downside, we were sat in the adorable window which was great until the hostess stand area filled up with brunch goers hoping for a seat. My view of my husband and the window seat were great, my husbands view of the groups of people and nothing else? Not so great.

not sure if something was going on in the kitchen -but my friend and I both got the fried chicken and it was extremely salty and had a strong vinegar flavor. I like salty food but this was too much. the biscuit, while flavorful, was also extremely salty. slaw was just shredded cabbage with zero mayo, etc to make it actual cole slaw. For the price I expect better quality food.

Let me preface this review with the fact that my wife is a chef at a reputable NYC restaurant and I have the utmost respect and admiration for those who work in this industry. I have been to this restaurant many times and my experience was always great. However, that was not the case during this visit. It was a late brunch reservation (3:30), and I imagine the kitchen was trying to switch over for dinner service. That is the only reason I can think of for why the service and food were so poor. We tried to place an order for drinks and apps, and were told we needed to place the full order at the same time. So we did, repeated the app order, plus gave the entree order. Our entrees arrived about 15 minutes later, and the apps did not. We inquired, and the food runner had no clue. Then our server came to check on us (which typically means all the food has been delivered), and we inquired again. His response was "oh, you wanted those as apps?" I asked if they had even been fired (in the kitchen), and he said he would need to check. Which clearly means no. I said "if they aren't fired yet, we'll just cancel them" and he said he would take them off the check. As opposed to what? Leaving something on the check we never received? In addition, they ran out of iced coffee, the "poached egg" on the avocado toast was overdone (yet somehow slimy), and the scrambled eggs on the mushroom toast had clearly been sitting out for an extended period of time. Our empty plates went uncleared for over 15 minutes, even though we were 1 of 2 tables in the entire restaurant and they had 6-8 staff wandering around. In general, it was disappointing to say the least. There was absolutely no ownership or apology for anything. If you're going to take late brunch reservations, patrons should be provided the same level of service as the early birds.

The portions were small considering the pricing. I ordered the seafood boil which was one of the more expensive items on the menu and the waiter warned me the portion was large. What arrived was a nearly empty large bowl. It had 2 clams, 1 razor clam, 1 mussel and 1 tiny tiny shrimp. The rest was filled with potatoes. I got about 2 slices of sausage. That’s all that was in the “boil”. And the service was meh. But the drinks were good?

The place is cute, but that’s about it. Being told that I must stand and wait until all members of my party have arrived is something I can’t stand. The service was oldly slow; three tables around my table came and went. The wine list is just sad. I had the avocado toast. The egg was over cooked. There was no seasoning in the avocado. The bread was so thick, that is all you tasted. Don’t bother.

It took over 90 minutes to get our food. When the food arrived, it was brought to the table at different times, one of the entries was wrong and needed to be sent back. My order was just two poached eggs over a salad. Not sure why it took over 90 minutes to arrive (we sat down at 1pm and the food arrived at 2:40), but when it did, it was ice cold. The house paid for our bill in acknowledgement of the long wait, but my day was already ruined and it was a stressful experience. Oddly enough, people who were seated a full hour after us received their food before us, but their order was also incorrect. The food is not good and they do not know how to cope with a typical Saturday brunch crowd (and the restaurant was not full when we arrived). I really wanted to like this place because it has a lot of character, but will not be coming back. They also gave me a stern warning when I made the reservation that they would only honor reservations for 15 minutes after the reserved time and would not seat the entire party until everyone arrived. I am always on time, but do not appreciate when restaurants handle these things in such a flat footed way.
