    Disappointed

    The Chowder House came highly recomended and I was expecting good things. The decor is beautiful and the bar staff is great, but that's where it ends. The lobster rolls were no better than food cart mediocre and the cod entre was totally inedible.

    Never again

    my son wanted to take the family out to a nice place to eat and chose Ed's. i should have known we were in trouble when the elevator was out of service & my wife & I, bad knees and all, had to walk up the stairs. The atmosphere was nice. The waiter answered all our questions and was accommodating. The NE Clam chowder was nothing to speak of - chewy clams and not very hot. The wedge salad was the smallest i've ever seen. The calamari portion was also small; the lump crabmeat was ok. my younger son and i had the broiled shrimp - 6 not so jumbo pieces. the mashed potatoes came out cold, were returned, and the second order a little warmer than the first. my older son had the smallest piece of salmon i ever saw in a restaurant. the double lamb chops my wife ordered-she asked that they be split-were also the smallest ever. she asked the waiter if he was sure they were double lamb chops and he quickly said yes. my wife couldn't believe what she had heard. she LOVES lambchops and orders them quite often when we eat out. the service was on the slow side. it's a good thing they serve small baskets of rolls/biscuits w/butter or we would have left as though never have eaten. my younger son stated that everything tasted like horseradish. The worst part was that my older son paid the bill and we felt terrible that he paid so much for so little. and he said that he'd eaten there before. we could have eaten in so many places in the city for the same money with much better food and portions. this was our first and last visit here.

    Lousy

    $5 for a tiny glass of ice tea that was nothing special and no refills. Manager not helpful and could not care less about customers. This is a tourist trap, skip it!

    Poor Value

    Lunch special 1/2 lobster sandwich (all bread and virtually no lobster) and cup of chowder (so small) was poor value for the $18. Made up with french fries. Left hungry. Manager uncooperative in initially giving us a window table saying it was reserved when it was not. Poor attitude. Waiters were good.

    Not Fair

    It is not fair the quantity or caliber of food you get for the price. The staff must know this place's days are numbered because they were generally disinterested.

    Unpleasant

    Small portions at a huge price. I've never seen a cup of chowder so small. It was about 1/4 of the size of a normal cup - There were maybe 4 tablespoons in there. Lobster roll for $26 mostly roll; little lobster. Worst part was that 3 of us spent $200 including a 20% tip. We were asked to give up our BAR table so they could seat people who were waiting. To top it off, we left hungry, and the 3 of us are small women.

    Ouch

    Felt burned after eating here with wife and friend. Nothing about any single dish was particularly good, the waiter vanished a couple of times (I think to have a smoke) and it was as expensive as all the other really nice places we went to in NY. I should have known when it was half empty despite fashion week down the block that we were in trouble.
