I came across this very nice place on a sunny day in May. We had the Crispy calamari and the Grilled chicken club sandwich and this was superb. The service was very attentive and I am determined to return sooner than later.

Salads were a 4. Tomato soup a 3. The coconut pie was the piece de resistance. Wine was fine and reasonable. Service was good, but they “were out of” our first choice shrimp bun at 5 pm.

This is a nice restaurant for a semi-causal evening out. The service and food are very good. I would highly recommend the salmon with cauliflower rice. By the way their cappuccino is amazing also.

Service was acceptable and food was standard. Nothing special and quite expensive. Better lower cost options in the area.

Deciding to eat at Elmo's was a result of hunger pangs as we walked along 7th Ave, liked the selections on the menu posted on the door, and the inviting look of the dark wood interior. We were not disappointed! The food was excellent, served...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 neighbourhood life. The
contemporary art scene is an integral part of the
neighbourhood’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
