    Overall ok experience... good ambience and music. My biggest issue is they charge 18% gratuity for checks over $150 or for parties of 4 or more... in my case we were a party of 2. They upcharged our drinks by $12 on TOP of the cost of the drink for top shelf and NEVER disclosed it would be that much. So, an overcooked cheeseburger w/fries (bun so hard it broke in half), over cooked chicken sandwich w/fries and 4 margaritas came to $186. Absolutely ridiculous!! Never again!!

    The appetizers were good. The Main Course was bland and have no taste for it to be overpriced. The waiter took very long with our food. The rinks were really good. I assume it is known for its seafood (boil) because that seemed to be good oppose to the Meats that were served. The service was very slow, and it wasn't even packed. Our waiter stopped serving us mid-way through our meal and ever came back to check on us. Overall, the service suck and the food.

    The place is very small and busy so the waiters do take a while to get to you. Took about 30 minutes just to get our drinks (table of 4). But the food was really good, well everything except the oysters. The grilled oysters were super tiny, there was barely anything in them and the raw oysters were not fresh at all. The Lamb chops were delicious so was the steak garlic noodles mac and cheese and the salmon bites. Gratuity is included but not the customer service.

    Chelsea House NYCResponded on September 7, 2022Thank you for your feedback! We're so sorry to hear that our service, and oysters were not up to par. We will discuss this with our staff, to improve in all areas. Overall we're happy to hear you enjoyed your food, and hope you will give us a second chance soon.

    The ambiance and setting are amazing; however, the food leaves much to be desired. We had the lamb chops and the surf and turf. The chops and steak were both a bit dry and lacking flavor. The lobster was over cooked. We also had he lobster Mac and cheese, which I would give a 8/10. Though It was good, It could be a bit cheesier. For dessert we had the warm rum cake, which was amazing and the best thing about the meal. The drinks were also amazing! I wouldn’t go back for a meal but would visit again for drinks and a good time.

    Chelsea house ambience is excellent but the service needs to be improved. Our food took forever we arrived at 7:25pm for our 7:30 reservation we did not get our main course until almost 9pm. The waiter informed us that “the kitchen lost our ticket” & that’s why it took so long. The waiter gave us a complimentary shot of casamigo and apologized for the long wait. Once we received our food we were not happy I ordered the crispy chicken sandwich the chicken was over cooked dry and flavorless my wife had the salmon the salmon itself had little to no seasoning but the sauce was good. Our experience was bad to the point the manager gave us a discount on our bill due to the inconvenience. I probably would not come back the food is not worth it.

    Chelsea House NYCResponded on August 26, 2022We would like to extend our sincerest apologies for what happened while dining with us here at The Chelsea House! We always aim to deliver a great experience to our guests, and we're extremely disappointed to hear this was not met during your recent visit. We completely understand how frustrating it must of been to wait almost an hour and a half for your food to be served. This was an honest mistake on our end. We will make sure to have a talk with our staff to ensure this does not happen again in the future.

    The ambiance was everything! Nicely lit yet still tinted enough to enjoy romantic meal, but light enough for conversations. The food was excellent! Oysters both raw and cooked were succulent and the main course was exquisite. Medium well NY steak and lobster tail complimented each other and the side of garlicky broccoli was a delight. The steak was marinated properly and juicy so no need to drown it in any steak sauce, could be sliced into an eaten as it comes. The drinks were strong and delightful as well.

    We arrived at 8:45pm and didn’t get our salad and bread until 9:45pm. We kept asking where it was and the poor waitress was very sweet, but it looked like she and another woman were the only 2 waitresses working in the place. The food was amazing once it arrived, the garlic and butter sauce was everything and they did take the salad and garlic bread off our bill. It’s a very loud place, hard to talk, and we will not go back unless it’s really early! Again, the food and drinks were amazeballs!
