First visit but won't be the last

We arrived at 6:00 pm after a flight from the East Coast so we felt like it was 9:00. The hostess could not have been more attentive or helpful, whisking us to our table and getting drink orders.

The food was good, not spectacular, with a variety of choices. Very good service. It's a noisy place, so not a romantic, fine-dining experience. We sat inside and the patio is probably a better place to be in mild weather. They do not accept reservations so best to arrive early on weekends, particularly.

Great food and great atmosphere! Varied menu with something for everyone. It's worth the wait to sit outside on their beautiful patio.

On a scale from 1-10, I give this place 4 for the food and -6 for the service. I WILL NEVER GO BACK AGAIN!!!!!!!! The food is just average, and there is nothing on the menu you will remember the next day. Overpriced bar food nothing more. Oh and parking is a nightmare!!! I had the grilled salmon and it... More

I can't say this is one of the best meals I have eaten, because I no longer can eat most foods. Chelsea's Kitchen was very accommodating. I had a grass-fed beef hamburger with no bun--just lettuce due to my rare disease--MCAS. I also had mashed potatoes with little on them but salt. My friends had a delicious salad and a... More

Amazing selection of foods of all type, including vegetarian for me. When the server heard it was our first visit, he took a lot of time and care to explain their concepts of organic and healthy foods, and was very helpful when asked about "what's extra good here?". Was a little noisy inside, but not terrible. The outside patio in... More

The atmosphere at Chelsea's is great! They have a wonderful patio with twinkle lights, fireplace and bar. Perfect setting for just about any occasion. The service was superb, and the food was delicious! Seasonal veggie, guacamole, french fries, roasted chicken, tuna burger, veggie tacos are all recommended.

Had the pleasure of having one of the most incredible cheeseburgers and hand cut fries west of 3 Aces Chicago on Taylor! The burgers, fries and everything else at Chelsea's Kitchen were excellent! Their iced tea is killer! And the waitstaff and managers are wonderful. Terrific customer service - with orgasmic burgers!!!! PS: The atmosphere on the inside patio is... More

A friend and I went here as a little mutual birthday treat...and what a treat it was! I had the vegetarian tacos, the selection of roasted vegetables were superb. They were seasoned perfectly and there was enough to share. The dining room is very pleasant, but we were glad we got there early, since they filled up fast and the... More

Best airport restaurant we've ever eaten in! I understand that the Camelback location has a somewhat larger menu but the airport location has plenty to offer. The food was fantastic and the servers were all so friendly and happy. We had some time to spend before our flight and I wanted a sit down, be served meal. What a great... More
