I had a wonderful dinner recently at the Chelsea, after seeing a movie at the Palace cinema close by. Movie followed by dinner at the Chelsea was a perfect way to spend an evening. It was a cold windy night, so we sat inside. Decor...More

This is my second review of Chelsea. My first was positive but this one is not. Overall the service was a bit under par and the food uninspiring and unimaginative. They boast that they have a new menu but quite frankly it looks as though...More
