I went here with my wife while in NYC for our birthdays (a day apart) and we met a friend here at happy hour for some oysters and champagne. I have been here once before a year earlier and enjoyed it, and this time was just as tasty.

We arrived at 5pm on a Thursday and the place was already packed. We had a reservation, so we had our table ready and we ordered a bunch of oysters and some scallop crudo to go with our champagne. The food was top notch, super fresh.

Our service staff was wonderful, warm and smiling, very professional and they look so nice dressed in "old world" attire that seems to be the "uniform" of this establishment.

What an establishment. We went midweek for the Oyster happy hour (people start queuing outside the door before it opens for 1$ Oysters) and ate some of the best and most varied Oysters I've had in the U.S. We then went for dinner on the week-end and it was quite simply sublime, arguably the best meal we had in NYC during an 8 day gastronomic tour of the city. Oysters for all were followed by razor and blood clams, sea urchin and scallops all served on ice. This was followed by a selection of raw seafood followed by the mains (the real heavyweights), the lobster, cod and duck, all cooked to perfection. Great vibe, great drinks, a total jackpot in every way.

Felt like i was in the 60's - very helpful staff and my absolute choice was the razor clams. Cocktails are also great.
Be prepared for some wait as the place is busy but the atmosphere is awesome.

How can you beat a decent selection of freshly shucked oysters? In my book, you can't. This is a very busy, vibrant place. Great Drinks, great oysters. Had to wait an hour for a seat at the bar to have oysters. Turned out to be a little less. Definitely worth it, it was happy hour of course. I think the staff made the wait tolerable. They are polite and above all efficient, they don't forget you are waiting. We had a great time and would gladly return, wait or not.

I usually come here for their happy hour special. The mixed drinks are good (but a bit pricy) The $1 oysters are fresh and great variety.
