Great place to go with a large group of friends and was there with about 20 people for a bachelorette party. Sherif went out of his way to make sure that our group was well taken care of!

I was very impressed with the food but they should have higher-end liquor. That was a big disappointment. The service was so terrible that I didn't even want to leave a tip. Pay attention to all of your tables, even if you have one large...More

My friend and I stumbled upon this restaurant quite by chance. There is a plethora of places to eat in the area, but the A in the window gave me confidence to give it a try. We were surprised they had a $15 prix fixe...More

If you like day parties and alcohol it's a good place. Prifixe menu was okay. The whole bottle of wine to yourself is awesome. Good music. Crowded.

Dined solo here, and while I was the only one doing so, I felt completely comfortable at all times. The room is large and therefore a little loud, but the atmosphere is friendly. The room is a bit on the dark side--some folks at neighboring...More

We've been trying restaurants throughout Chelsea to be our go-to dinner spot since we both began working in NYC. After being overcharged for mediocre food, rushed along to make room for an 8:00 seating, and faced its bizarre blaring music, we finally found the perfect...More

After a great win in the tournament a few fellow Seton Hall fans and I went to dinner to celebrate. We continued our "high" at this restaurant. The drinks were creative and nicely presented. I had a Blackberry Mint Margarita. It was not overly sweet...More

Il Bastardo is a sort-of half restaurant-half bar place. The back dining room is more intimate; the front shares the bar and is more interesting. Big picture windows open onto the sidewalk for outdoor dining, weather permitting. The place is very casual and the service...More

The food was excellent. Had fried calamari as an appetizer and eggplant lasagna was amazing! Very hot temperature also which i really like. Companions had chicken dishes which were also enjoyed. Prices not too expensive especially for NYC. Will go back!

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
