    Oysters, lobster roll and New England clam chowder are the best in the city!

    The food was delicious. The Catalán seafood stew was superb and plentiful, the red snapper special also very tasty but portion was small. The wait staff was very attentive but not intrusive. We will return.

    We went on a recommendation while on a business/ pleasure trip. The restaurant is crammed and you sit on top of your neighbors. The noise level was high. The food was good. My whole lobster was tasty but my boyfriend’s lobster roll was small and fair. The shrimp and lobster dumplings app was tasteless, and a waste of money. Our server disappeared and left us begging to pay the bill. I believe there are better choices in the Chelsea Market for a meal well over $150 for 2.

    Raw bar was ok but pricey. Surprisingly, They did not offer a lot of sauces for the seafood tower. The fish and chips were a little greasy with thick layer of batter but fries were thin and crunchy. Lobster roll was a little on skimpy side but tasty. However, its hard to make a bad lobster roll. Noise level makes it hard to hold a conversation and the loud music playing doesn't help!

    Service was awesome. Oysters were so cold and fresh. Squid .... very tasty but cold. Lobster roll skimpy. All food was tasty and well presented. But having a skimpy lobster roll ... cmon. We are New Yorkers. We go to the Montauk, lobster shacks, The Hamptons, Long Island diners... Everyone knows a lobster roll must be overflowing.

    Hoped to have a good time but it wasn't. I live in Chelsea near the restaurant and it was full of tourists. We ordered an appetizer with the waitress and then somehow the manager took the rest of the order, and when our lobsters came, hadn't got the appetizer. She offered to either take it off the bill or bring it after the main course. Neither acceptable. She should have left the waitress to take care of us , so we waited what seemed a long time for the appetizer. Also, after the meal, they only had espresso, no other choices, not even regular coffee. And a single choice for desert. In retrospect, didn't like how ordering wine went either. They had several wines I'm not familiar with and Sancerre. They insisted on bringing three wines to taste, and I liked the Sancerre the most and ordered it, and she said something snotty about ordering something new Vs. a familiar choice. I liked it the best and don't need someone in a restaurant saying their taste is better than mine. It's run by Lobster Place, the wholesale fish store next door, and they are a lot better at running a store which I got to all the time than a restaurant. I think the absence of customers other than tourists says a lot, locals are not coming back.
