If we didn't live right next door to the Chelsea hotel, where this upscale, chic restaurant overlooks the Atlantic through a giant wall of glass, we would have never known about it.

The food is good; the scenery was beautiful - overlooks the beach, ocean and sky. The interior is attractive; the bar area busy and very good drinks, the piano player definitely made this restaurant stand out. He played show tunes; sixties songs (good for baby boomers!); modern songs, everything!

Mike the bartender was fast, gracious, and made good drinks. We had the calamari appetizer, and conversed with the nice folks around us. It was nice, with a view of the (freezing) ocean.

As with the Hotel Chelsea itself the decor is a pleasurable stone and glass motif. The Ocean views from the large picture windows are fine. The bar is friendly and features a good happy hour feature with well poured drinks from excellent bartenders and a chance to win prizes like free nights, visits to the spa or, as my wife... More

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.
