This time no lobsters, but loved the oysters. Fresh, varied in taste, nice assortments available, fast and good service. Prices are not cheap but it's NYC, what are you gonna do?

Very simple place at Chelsea market with cheap, teasty lobsters. Cooking time is very short as well. There is no place to sit there, you have to eat standing up, but it worth it. Highly recommended to visit!

The place is a market and a restaurant. You can see how fresh the food is and choose. The lobsters and oysters are delicious…You must try it.

If you love fresh lobster, you can’t get any fresher than The Lobster Place. They steam a fresh lobster on the spot and serve it with butter and lemon. Also worth getting a lobster roll or some lobster bisque from C&P Galley too.

When we went to NY,we ate very flesh lobsters two times. We enjoyed them very much, even if eating place was small and crowded.

As this place is pretty pricey (unless you opt for the take-away sushi e.g.), we only ordered two plates: The tuna tartar (with egg yolk, probably quail, forgot. . .) and the lobster roll. Together with green tea, this was a delight to eat. I'd...More

Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful
brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most
popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s
jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The
contemporary art scene is an integral part of the
neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost
every night of the week and countless exhibits to
explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York

It is definitely worth stopping by. An interesting experience. The place is always crowded. The food is fresh, and they offer seafood and fish variety. You can eat there or prder to go.

This is a seafood restaurant, not a hotel, more like a market with a clam bar and open seating. Very fresh fish and great NE clam chowder. Enjoy.
