Oyster bar is our favoriteOyster bar is our favorite restaurant. Every time we have gone we love the food, the service is impeccable.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent fresh seafood. WeExcellent fresh seafood. We were fortunate enough to get there on a Saturday before 6:30 and sat at the bar where we were able to take advantage of their $1 specials for oysters, cherry stones etc. We were a party of six and every entre was different and well prepared. Both specials were ordered and were quite creative combinations. Valet parking is complimentary and a must in this bustling area. Cars came quickly when it was time to leave.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMNight out with my sister wasNight out with my sister was great - the service was outstanding, beginning with the valet who brought my cellphone into the restaurant after noticing I left it in the console. Waitress was efficient and asked if there were any food alergies after overhearing my sister's comment about avoiding glueten and the chef prepared her dish without using a sauce that contained flour as a thickening agent. The oysters were fresh and the Rockefeller were delicious. The seabass was very good and my only complaint is the skin should have been cooked crisper.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMI am not a raw shellfish person,I am not a raw shellfish person, but went with a group that were. All raved about their raw bar oysters, littlenecks, cherrystones, and shrimp. There were plenty of choices beyond shellfish. Pt. Judith Calamari was crisp and spicy. Lobster Bisque was decadent, with large chunks of lobster meat. Sesame Seared Ahi Tuna w/ Lobster Wontons was fabulous. Quality of the Tuna was outstanding. Interesting cocktail options, including Pear Martini w/ Amaretto and their twist on the Margarita, with muddled cilantro and jalapenos. Rave reviews for Lobster Roll, Linguine with White Clam Sauce, Chilean Sea Bass, and Blackened Tuna Appetizer. Peanut Butter & Banana Gelato hit the spot for dessert. Definitely a keeper.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWe've been to the Oyster BarWe've been to the Oyster Bar several times for dinner and never have been disappointed. We were thrilled to find that the Sunday Brunch menu is just as good. Great make-your-own Bloody Mary bar, and the brunch offerings are just as tempting (and delicious) as the dinner menu.
The restaurant was surprisingly quiet when we arrived, but started to pick up a bit later in our meal. Definitely recommend for that special brunch out with friends or family.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Oyster Bar never dissapoints;The Oyster Bar never dissapoints; the food is exellent and the staff is great, accommodating, friendly and attentive.

Everything cooked perfectly, especially the calamari which was soft and not at all chewy. A bit pricey but we heard a day too late that they have great happy hour deals at the bar.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service and no complaintsGreat service and no complaints about the food. I ordered one of my favorite cabernets and after she opened the bottle mentioned that someone sometimes ordered the Joseph Phelps Insignia (from next door so it wasn't on their wine list). We switched to that without a problem and had a splendid dinner.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThe fresh seafood is the bestThe fresh seafood is the best in Providence.
