“Sky Harbor location, great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

We were stuck at the airport and decided to eat at Chelsea's Kitchen. What a surprise! Great decor, atmosphere and food. The prices are high but our meals were delicious. You don't feel like you're eating at the airport. Having all these new restaurants at Sky Harbor is a brilliant idea!

“Must try”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

Big wait, but got immediate sevice on the front patio. Got short rib tacos... Good the next day as left overs. Green chili burger was too spicy hot, and I'm from AZ. The chicken nachos were so- so. Kinda pricy for the food quality, but surely good. Big points for atmosphere. Valet parking seemed pretentious at first, but made sense given the small parking lot. You gotta try it.

“A favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

I've probably eaten at Chelsea's Kitchen 2 dozen times and have never been disappointed. Well,just once when my favorite rotisserie chicken was pretty dry. Having enjoyed that dish several times before,I just shrugged it off. However,I did mention it to our server in the spirit of being helpful. On her next pass she said that the meal would be erased from our bill. Told her that wasn't necessary,but she insisted. That incident demonstrates what I believe is this restaurants basic philosophy that being to serve the best product available and value the guest. The menu is varied and largely features healthful foods that are truly delicious. Don't miss it... Also,one of the nicest patios in town.

“Patio”

Had group of six. Most had the special of short rib tacos and loved them. Desert was the great and everyone enjoyed the gelato. Will definitely come back as pleasant atmosphere next to the canal.

“Arcadia neighborhood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

We went to Chelsea's Kitchen for the first time this week for Arizona Restaurant week's special menu. It was a Tuesday evening about 6pm and the place was busy, but we got seated right away. There are no reservations taken.
There is complimentary valet parking as the parking lot is small, but valet marks most of the spots with cones, not many other places in the area to park other than valet if you don't get self parking.
We had the brussel sprout salad and the La Grande Orange caesar salad as our first course. We had the short rib tacos and the grilled salmon with broccolini as our second course. The third course was a choice of gelato(we had pistachio and the today's flavor which was mint chocolate ....) The other flavors were chocolate, strawberry,vanilla, & butter pecan. It was two nice size scoops. All the courses were delicious. The tacos came with fresh corn tortillas, guacamole, pico de gallo, and a side kale salad.
The $7.00 glass of white sangria was very good. The sodas come in cans, so no refills per say.
This restaurant is owned by LGO Hospitality which runs La Grande Orange and 6 other places, 3 of which are in CA.
We paid $30. each for 3 courses. We Love to try Arizona Restaurant week as it lets us choose a different/new place.
There is a small area in the outside front for patio dining and a large patio in the back.
The Dress is casual to business wear, many people coming from work as well as shorts/t-shirt types.
