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!

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.

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.

Very nice place with excellent food. Some typical southern influenced food with a twist, prepared with skill.

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
