Chelsea Grill of Hell's Kitchen
Posted by Local Lad on 03/27/2011
I have been to the Chelsea Grill twice, and they won't have the chance to charm me with a third visit, mainly because the service is atrocious. The food is not bad, although you can get better at any of a dozen spots within a 3 block radius. i don't mind paying a premium if the food is worth it....but it isn't, and the hostesses seem to specialize in making guests feel like they're doing them a favor by allowing them to dine there.....service is S....L....O....W....so plan on spending at least an hour and a half on that burger and fries. On my second visit, I took a date- it was crowded, and we were led to a REALLY crappy table next to the busing station/kitchen entrance- there was a better table nearby, and I asked quite nicely if we couldn't sit there instead, and received a curt "no" in response. We didn't stick around for dinner. No way will I patronize an establishment that doesn't care if the customers are satisfied. Overall rating on a scale of 1-10? 2. Food= mediocre and overpriced Service= poor

Strolled down 9th Ave on our first NY visit and saw this sweet little bar. It was really full which is a usually a good sign. After taking a seat right at the what we thought was the window what was really a gate and not very well sealed. We order the Chelsea Burger and the Chelsea Chicken Burger. The waitress even asked how we would like the beef patty to be cooked. Medium of course. After a 40 min wait, which is outrages for a burger. We received two chicken burger. We of course notified the waitress and she took care of it right away. After 5 min she came back and had the audacity to ask if we wanted the meal to go now or if we would still eat there. We decided to stay hoping it would go quick. be careful what you wish for because we got a burger charcoal outside and bloody inside. After taking two bites we decided to leave.

Had dinner for three on a Wednesday night. The food was great (esp. the bacon wrapped meat loaf). Price wise, two entrees, two appetizers and a bottle of wine for $90 (includes tip) Our waitress was a little slow but very friendly. Will be going back.

My wife and I are Torontonians who appreciate good food. We just got back from our first trip to NYC. What a City! Truthfully we were not disappointed in any meal but quite impressed with Chelsea Grill. The value for the quality of food combined with the service was excellent. 3 appetizers, 2 entrees, 1 dessert and a bottle of wine all for under $100 with tip and in NYC. Who would believe it. We went to Hell (Chelsea Grill of Hell's Kitchen) and we will be back!

Went to the Chelsea Grill before going to BB Kings based on the reviews I read here. My girl and I were not disappointed. Began with the fried calamari which was light and delicious.I had chicken and she had a burger. The burger was juicy and tender and very flavorful, so was my chicken. The waffled fries were great and even the pickles were terrific. The service was polite, we never felt rushed even though there were people waiting for our table. The check was insanely inexpensive and a pleasant surprise. Definitely going back!!!

Had eaten at several higher priced restaurants earlier in the week & stumbled across this place on our last night. Great food, great service, great price...great time!! Had the bacon wrapped meatloaf and homemade rigatoni and they both were terrific. Would highly recommend for the price and much better than the overpriced Times Square tourist traps.

we were wondering if this was one of those tourist traps..ya know 'Hells Kitchen(we're not NYkers)...we performed our due diligence on places to eat based on web sites...we thought it was going to be a night from hells kitchen based on the busy-ness of the place..But a good local freind said "good choice" well the night was superb...food , service, ambiance....I don't usually spend time on this nonsense, but it really was good relaxed and a lot of fun..(best food/restaurant service I have seen of late) and in NYC!! Great value... Would only suggest a talapia or some other delicate fish dish to the menu.
