I really loved Chelsea's kitchen. Not only was the food fresh and delicious, but the service was wonderful. Atmosphere- perfect...indoor and outdoor, intimate, fun, beautiful. Just upscale enough to be special, but not super dressy. Food- I had the Brussel sprout salad with chicken. It was exactly what I was in the mood for - and I will be back... More

I met a few friends here because they used to work here years ago, and we all work together now so I wanted to see there old stomping grounds. Valet service as soon as you come in because whether it's lunch or dinner apparently they are always busy. I walked in and loved the layout, the decor, and my favorite... More

While still being hip and cool... Chelsea's is the perfect place to bring younger children. My kids are now 6&7. We've been bringing them the Chelsea's since they were born. The decor is inviting, yet durable for kids. The menu is eclectic and almost always good. We usually end up spending more than expected, but not enough to deter future... More

Great atmosphere eclectic menu and interesting combinations. The flavors of the menu were diverse but we'll paired definitely a nicer place if your looking for a nicer upscale dinner. Against my best instincts (coming from FL) I got sea food which didn't appear to be all that fresh but it was still prepared well. The guacamole could use some flavor... More

I love sitting on the patio where you can watch and hear the birds. I love the kale salad and the burgers are delicious. The parking is pretty much nonexistent and you must valet. The colleague I was riding with did not want to do valet and we parked illegally in a neighboring business lot. I was surprised that the... More

My husband had a green-chili hamburger cooked as they suggested (rare or medium rare - for a burger?) and raved over it. His french fries were delicious and different. We couldn't place the seasoning but it was good. I had the prime rib cooked as rare as they could get it. It was rare, tender, and one of the best... More

We stopped in for lunch and was pleasantly surprised. I love short ribs but this the first short rib Taco I ever had. I can still taste it. Kale salad with grapes and quenua was great. Chicken Nachos also tops. Can't wait to go back for Dinner

Lively atmosphere in a busy restaurant, yet we waited only 2 minutes for a great patio table. Delicious food, with excellent crab cakes, salmon and short ribs. Serviceexcellent, friendly and knowledgable.
