What an incredible experience we had the other day at this outstanding restaurant. Since we love so many of their food selections... This time instead of ordering the Del Mar Salad, I decided to order the tuna burger and accidently received the tuna tacos... I pointed the mistake out but laughed and said that I loved the tacos anyway.... Well.... More

Arrived on a Tuesday at 5 with 6 people and waited 45 minutes for an outside table. The ambiance on their outside patio is eclectic and festive, a stark contrast to the inside. We had two servers, one inside for drinks, who really had a chip on his shoulder, and Stephanie on the patio, who had an attitude, as well.... More

We always come here at least once each trip. The wonderful industrial decor tempered by rustic patio is charming. Sitting at the bar that straddles the inside and outdoor patio is perfect. Drinks are well made and generous while not being over-priced. Wine list not extensive, but adequate. French dip and seasoned fries was rare as ordered and fantastic. On... More

We don't live in the area or the state but the few times we have tried to come this place is packed. Tonight we found out why... it was delicious! I never have seen deviled eggs on an appetizer menu. But they had them here and they were tasty. We also enjoyed swordfish tacos and braised short rib tacos. It... More

We dined at Chelsea's Kitchen on a trip three years ago and had a memorable meal. Second trip was just as good. The back patio is worth the extra wait!!

They don't take reservations but the valet parking is free, (although I'm certain most people give the valets' a tip when they bring back your wheels.) The food is VERY good but the cocktails go down pretty easily and you can run up a sizeable tab without much difficulty. It's a very popular place and you may have to wait... More

This is an upscale fusion grill with a Mexican theme. The food is excellent and the service is as well. Don't leave without a slice of Key Lime Pie or trying the corn bread.

Service was very good, but food was not. If you are going to have a visit with friends, forget it due to the noise.

The music was so loud you couldn't talk over it. Jarring cymbals screaming vocals. We asked the waitress to turn it down and she said " that's what the owner want" so.... we went to the manager and got " we hired a new service and this is what we're doing now. " As someone who is here once a... More

Stopped in for lunch after a hike up Camelback Mt. The servers quickly addressed my dehydration with what seemed to be the coldest glass of water followed up with some delicious short rib tacos and a coke. The food cam out fast and hot. Great spot for lunch after a hike.
