The previous reviews I read about Dining on the 5th were spot on. The look and feel of restaurant is very appealing with views of the ocean and throwback decor but that is probably the best part of the experience. The food wasn't bad but wasn't anything special. We had the crab cakes and lamb sliders for appetizers and shrimp... More

This restaurant on the 5th floor of the Chelsea hotel is very lovely. The decor is classy and it has a view overlooking the ocean. We had steak and scallops, and both were very good. Dessert was also good. Overall, a lovely American bistro in a nice hotel.

Had a lovely dinner here with friends on a Saturday night. Food was excellent and the server was very pleasant. The place has a neat retro vibe with beautiful view of the ocean.

With a gorgeous panoramic view of the Atlantic Ocean, this place had potential. However the food and presentation didn't measure up. We had ordered a filet mignon medium rare and received a well done steak instead. The rest of the meal did not live up to expectation either. Our waitress was accommodating.

I had dinner there tonight and felt that the whole experience felt "wet behind the ears", it's atmosphere is upscale but the food and service just didn't measure up. Better they should rethink the concept on this 5th floor restaurant -- the food is not any better than Teplitsky's and the price point is higher. I left feeling like a... More

Located on the 5th floor of the Chelsea. This is a full service restaurant with a unique menu. Everything from the apps, entre to desert was excellent.

I am normally a picky person and I loved this restaurant! It has been nicely renovated; chic and glamorous. Food was delicious, view was fantastic and service was great! The Dj spinning did well to choose music for the ambiance of the restaurant and the people in it. I appreciated the quiet dinner with my hubby. Will come back next... More

This used to be our (husband & wife) favorite restaurant. Once called, "The Chelsea Prime" - it had everything! Typically, we are satisfied with just very good food and very good service. Rarely do you find a restaurant that has is all - VERY good food AND service AND ambiance AND a spectacular view! This was our most anticipated restaurant... More

Upon arrival(which restaurant was empty)wait staff was dressed rather casual in no particular fashion just all black, velvet sofas looked dirty and old. They had better view then the dining tables? We ordered the crab cakes suggested by our waitress, We received green and red pepper cakes with a bit of crab that was not even fresh. Absolutely no hint... More

This was once our favorite restaurant not only because of the fantastic views but because they once had live music (jazz/blues) duos and trios which made this destination different amongst the sea of other young techno club like dining stops in every casino. The best news was the food (filet/truffle Mac and Cheese) hadn't changed but you can't get hollandaise... More
