For many years, I've been a fan of Chelsea's Kitchen. It's near the Arcadia neighborhood of Phoenix. The service and the food are excellent, and so is the ambiance. There's a beautiful patio in the center of the restaurant, which is lovely during "the season" in Phoenix! The treat on your way out the door are chocolate chip cookies sprinkled... More

The place is nice but as with any restaurant here in Phoenix the AC is so low it's cold and smells barbecue inside. Luckily they have a nice quiet garden where we were very happy. Tuna tartare was tasty and fresh my swordfish was well made on the grill. We took a plate which had lobster and meat which I... More

We took our visiting daughter and grandson here for a late afternoon dinner. The food was very good, especially short rib tacos. Also, kids eat free before 6 pm. The choices for kids are very good. We like the dining room decor and vibe.

We had dinner with friends and the service was great! Our party ordered the Grilled Ahi Tuna Tacos, Short Rib Tacos and the Green Chile Burger. The Tuna Tacos were fantastic. This month they feature fresh roasted Hatch Chiles.. We are looking forward to the chefs nightly special. The dishes are freshly prepared and the chef is creative. If you... More

We always plan a trip to Chelsea's kitchen when we are in the area! My personal favorite is the Brussel Sprout salad. Add in some chicken and you will be full for days. I swear you get half of a chicken! The ahi is also incredible. Full bar, valet parking and excellent service keep us coming back.

Swordfish tacos are a must try. I loved the Kale slaw! The back patio is relaxing and has a lot of charm. We will definitely return.

Every time I travel to Phoenix, I make a pint to have dinner at Chelsea's kitchen and I'm never disappointed. The food is always excellent (especially the Brussel Sprout salad !), the service top notch and the environment very relaxing. Highly recommended !

I can't even. This was my plate of short rib tacos. The homemade tortillas on the side. That's kale slaw. And pico. And guacamole. Everything I put into my tortilla or as I was calling it in my head, my hand size pocket of happiness, just dissolved in my mouth. The short ribs were so tender I had a hard... More

Came to one of our favorite restaurants in the Phoenix area to celebrate a birthday. A must is to start with the Deviled Eggs. By far the best ever, honestly, out of this world. Followed by their famous short rib tacos were as always, excellent. Restaurant has both an indoor seating and outside patio. Inside tends to be a bit... More

There is a picture on this web site of the hatch green chile hamburger which had a large handful of chilies and plenty of cheese. Not on my green chile hamburger! My burger had a 2 inch square green chile! They did not clean the chile or remove the seeds. The french fries had a tablespoon or two of some... More
