Amazing food!

I started my night with dinner on the rooftop. It was amazing! The design is great and I felt like i was in a little Paris garden. The view of the bridge is beautiful. The service was good. Every dish I ordered was perfect! The chef did a remarkable job. I sent my thanks to the chef through the waitress but if the chef is reading this: Bravo! Your food is so good! Culinary genius! Hotel Chantelle is lucky to have you. After eating, I went to the bar on the lowest level. It was very packed which I dont like too much but the music was great. It didn't take too long to grab a drink. Overall, I love hotel chantelle. It is a great place to eat and have fun.

Can't say enough good things about Hotel Chantelle

NIGHT ONE: I had my birthday party at SGTs (the basement bar) and I can't say enough great things about our experience. I had 97 people on my guest list with the agreement that everyone could get in before 11:30pm and that promise was honored up to midnight. The doormen, managers and staff were fantastic -helpful, attentive and fair about everything. Everyone had a pheomenal time dancing until about 3am. It was LES attitude meets Meatpacking exclusivity, but without the fratty/poser-ness of LES and the elitist attitude of MD. Unfortunately, I was severely overcharged for everything on my first evening, BUT it was TOTALLY rectified. Which brings me to... NIGHT TWO: After I posted a Yelp review noting that I had been overcharged but still had a blast on my first visit, I almost immediately received a very sincere and generous note from the manager who offered to comp me a bottle on my next visit. My friends and I took him up on that offer and had yet another wild time. The manager and Jessica at the door brought us all to the front of the line, ushered us in, gave us the best booth in the house and regularly checked in to make sure we were happy. We weren't. We were far beyond happy. The music is always on point, the service is absolutely unmatched and the scene is sexy.

It's the same old song

Did NYMag really visit this spot? I thought I trusted these critics picks...? This place had a lot of potential, until they hired the same LES promoters that bring the same fake crowd and the same boring music. Yes, you are right, walking in does feel like a 1940s Parisian tavern...until you hear the taio cruz and lady gaga on blast. What's up with that Benjamin? This spot will quickly fade into the background.

Terrible

I had high hopes for this place, invited a bunch of friends and ended up leaving with one drink incensed, annoyed - ultimately i'm NOT returning. The space looks nice, it was not too crowded so my friends and I got a booth (there were 6 of us total). Prices seemed average for a NY cocktail bar, we placed our orders with the waitress and waited...and waited...and waited...again there were people packed up against the bar but overall the place was maybe at half of its capacity. After asking our waitress multiple times where are drinks were (this was after half an hour) we started getting them one at a time. by the time the last drink arrived I had already finished my first (it was decent but not amazing). We were upset and wanted to get out of there (this was beginning of the night bar) and so alerted the waitress that we'll leave cash. We were notified by the waitress that they don't take cash for tables which is obviously ridiculous. An hour later and one drink does not signal me coming back anytime soon.

Really, NYMag?

I had a totally different take on the place...it felt like a cheesy LES bar to me, complete with a fake line outside and overdressed and underage girls inside.
