Went here for a friend’s birthday brunch. They have pre fixe menus priced between $45-$100 which was great. Everyone can choose which pre fixe option they wanted. You also get your own bottle of champagne, rose, mimosa or Bellini. Music and food was really good....More

Absolute horrible experience. Extremely overpriced, disgusting food, loud music & aggressive bouncers. Further action will be taken against this place.

Ive never gone for anything but brunch but it is a good time. The food is good and the drink special is cool. It can get a bit aggressive on the weekends with shows and the like

I had dinner with my friend service was good. But actually my food was little bit salty. Over all good price and food quality.

I was very impressed with the food but they should have higher-end liquor. That was a big disappointment. The service was so terrible that I didn't even want to leave a tip. Pay attention to all of your tables, even if you have one large...More

Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful
brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most
popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s
jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The
contemporary art scene is an integral part of the
neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost
every night of the week and countless exhibits to
explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York
