Subpar brunch options
The hostess was welcoming to this very homey restaurant. Decorated similar to a parsonage might be, it is inviting. Our server was great. He was extremely accommodating. We were in the back room and although the play list was great , we wanted a little quieter when dining. No problem.
We started with hush puppies - excellent choice and followed it with fried chicken. The portions are beyond generous. The chicken was moist and good. We saw some salads coming out and they also looked very generous.
The piece de resistance is dessert. We shared the sorghum cake. My partner is from the south so sorghum is a kind of molasses sugar. The cake was delicious, like nothing that I’ve ever tasted. Sweet but not too, sort of molasses but not really just incredibly good.
We all really enjoyed our meals! The service was just ok. We had two servers over the course of our meal and neither seemed to want to be there.
Had a delightful family brunch on a rainy afternoon. Two of us arrived early and were seated in the (small) waiting area and served complimentary coffee while we waited for the others to arrive. In spite of it being a busy Saturday afternoon the waitstaff was attentive and professional throughout. The food was filling, tasty, and flavorful. Love the Biscuit Bomb and the grits! We were all quite happy.
Tipsy Parsons is one of those rare restaurants where you can keep coming back week after week, year after year to find that whomever greets you at the door, pours you a drink at the bar or serves your dinner, you are happy that you’ve Again returned for dinner. After twenty five years of living in nyc and spending so many nights in restaurants for business or pleasure, I have to say, I love Tipsy Parsons most.
I enjoy how the warm, people here actually care about what they do for a living. It’s rare.
The restaurant had one other table in the room where we were seated and we were rushed for the entire meal. The food was very salty and the short rib was tough. Very disappointing meal.
I thought the food was pretty tasty, a good selection of appetizers and entrees and desserts, and the staff was professional and friendly.
An absolutely delicious brunch before heading to the theater. The food was creative and wonderful; drinks above average; ambiance lively and energetic.
I love the atmosphere at Tipsy Parson. The food is always wonderful and the service excellent. My only complaint from my last visit is that the noise level was beyond unbearable. We sat in the back room. It was full. We could hardly hear ourselves. We even had to repeat our meal orders because it was too loud for our server to hear. Wonderfully, as the evening waned and the back room emptied, the noise level became much more bearable.
I wasn't aware beforehand that the specialty is nouveau Southern cuisine, which was an intriguing discovery. The pulled pork left something to be desired, but the wine list turned me on to an Italian white (ugni blanco) that was new to me and delicious.
Good brunch spot that can accommodate larger groups and takes reservations!
Wonderful experience. Amazing food and lovely wait staff.
The food and service were great! The brunch cocktails were more on the expensive side, but still delicious. Our waiter was awesome!
Cozy setting, great ambiance. For dinner a somewhat limited menu.
Server was so attentive and knowledgeable.
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.
