Italian | Chelsea, Manhattan

This is a wonderful and very authentic Italian restaurant. The quality is outstanding every time we go and the wait staff is very professional, making everyone feel special. The wine list is outstanding and moderately priced (mainly Italian although we ordered a DuMol Syrah from California the other night which was exceptional). I think they have the best veal in the city but my husband is crazy for their filet mignon. They do full and half portions of the pasta dishes which is a plus if you want to try several dishes. More

Fred’s is perfect for a rainy day lunch with the Hubs or a Summer Friday catch up with a good friend.

We had a great table near the front door and windows starting at 5:30 pm when the restaurant was on the quieter side which we like. The host treated us like old friends and kept an eye on all. The waiters were friendly and accommodating. The food is consistently excellent and of a fair price. He happy hour (till 6 pm) offers a few dollars off some appetizers and their excellent draft and fine house wine. My out-of-town guests were really pleased. More

A very nice dinning experience. Would have preferred to sit near the garden area which seemed much calmer then where we sat - a little further towards the back. The food was good. Maybe some of the fish or presentation could use a bit more refinement. Personal dipping bowls of soy sauce would also be very welcoming. Enjoyed our experience minus how loud it gets in the back dinning area. More

Seafood | Chelsea, Manhattan

I have eaten at Seamore's numerous times and, as usual, the food was DELICIOUS!! I tried the crispy fish taco; usually order the reel deal. Unfortunately, the girl at the front when we arrived was rude, antagonistic, insulting and totally unprofessional. This is unusual in the many times I have eaten at Seamore's. The gal who is usually at the front desk is delightful. The restaurant was unusually crowded at 5:15 pm so service was a bit slow. This didn't bother us, but we had been told, in no uncertain terms, that our table had a 6 pm reservation and we had to be out by then. Throughout dinner, I noticed that the girl up front stood with an angry face all the time ... never a smile, glaring at the world. This does not represent the cheerful demeanor which is pervasive thru the rest of the Seamore's staff. Sorry to be so negative about this one person. I had brought a friend who was new to Seamore's. We did not let it ruin the enjoyment of our meal. The food was DELICIOUS !! More

The food was absolutely delicious and the service was great. The one issue I ran into was that a lot of the dishes included shrimp or pork, which did limit my options as somebody who can't eat either. (I'd been hoping that the shrimp in the Tom Yum soup would be something that they could simply leave out, but it turned out it was part of the broth, rather than being individual pieces of shrimp.) That said, I ended up ordering the chicken Massaman curry special and still very much enjoyed the food and the gorgeous decor. I also got a kick out of the fact that there was such a wide variety of different cuisines. More

Greek | Chelsea, Manhattan

Can’t believe bad reviews. Our experience was contrary to every criticism. I booked through Open Table, and called to verify I would indeed have a table outdoors as there were numerous Yelp complaints. They picked up on the first ring (contrary to reports that one needs to call and there is no answer). I explained there were complaints on Yelp that people were told upon arriving that there was a private party and their accommodations could not be honored. The Maitre de didn’t know what I was talking about. I arrived early for my reservation, and was not only seated outdoors, but they made room for two extra guests, and were very jocular about the request. The staff was authentically Greek, and quite personable and charming. The orzo seafood was delicious. The branzino was lightly grilled in oil, very good but not spectacular. The waitress brought the table a plate of free desserts which were the highlight. My only disappointment was that coffee is only served in the main restaurant, and not on the roof deck. Overall a hit...all but the Mediterranean in the background, and white sheets blowing in the breeze. A small price for the convenience of Manhattan. More
