Docks Oyster Bar and Seafood Grill
Seafood Cobb Salad
lobster, crab, shrimp
The service was horrible. The waitress basically ignored us the entire night. Anytime we needed a water refill or another drink we had to wave down a busboy and ask him to find her.
Lastly, she had a bad attitude and was nasty.
I’m a repeat diner at DOCKS. When in NYC area of Grand Central, it’s my “go to” restaurant.
Dock's is a very nice neighborhood seafood restaurant.
Dock’s is a great place for lunch. Good ambiance and food.
Sadly didn’t go We wanted to eat in Atlantic City
Always a great choice - I love Docks and the lovely food and staff!!
Server was greate, but for $130 I expect my lobster to not be over cooked. The baked potato was barely cooked, luke warm and no extras.
Lunch is a much better experience
Nada estuvo bien. Mi reserva era
Para las 9.30 PM ñ. Llegamos 10
Minutos antes e hicimos
Nuestros pedidos: 2 apetizers para compartir entre los 3; y también nos tomaron el pedido del segundo plato. A los 15 minutos llegó todo junto a la mesa: los apetizers y los segundos platos. Rechazamos los segundos para poder comer el primer plato y cuando llegó el segundo. Tofo estaba frío, las langostas frias y mal cocidas y los ravioles apenas tibios. He ido a comer
Muchas veces en el pasado y siempre fuimos bien atendidos; pero esta vez parece que la gente de la cocina quería irse. Mala experiencia y mal comida. Si la gente de la cocina quiere irse temprano no deberían tomar reservas para las 9.30
Had dined at Dock’s before and had good meals. This time, it was terrible. Ordered a mixed drink that was obviously not made correctly. All at the table tried it, it was not drinkable. The waiter never noticed that the drink was just sitting on the table. “Grilled” swordfish special had a thick black crust on it.
Continues to be the best place in Midtown for a meal. Easy to get to but away from the hustle and bustle. The new outdoor set up is fantastic.
Love it amazing place
The quality of the food was excellent and the service was outstanding.
yoou can't go wrong here. consistent food and service
We live in the neighborhood and eat at docks several time a year. Still enjoyable.
Everyone there helped me celebrate my friend's birthday. Excellent food (flavors and quality) and presentation.
Great seafood! Glad to see it’s back open! Good for every occasion
Great dinner at Dock’s. My salad, fish and dessert were all delicious. Nice, casual vibe in the restaurant, too. No wonder it has lasted so long. I will dock there again very soon.
Great food and service as always, been coming for years, always a super restaurant to dine at!
We enjoyed returning to the restaurant after being away because of the pandemic. We were a little surprised to see that not all the staff were wearing masks.
Location is good, ambiance is inviting
The food, as usual, was good...Restaurant Week 3 course meal of crispy oysters, branzino and dessert; chowder and crab cake sandwich. The dessert - allegedly a blueberry cobbler was strange though. It was a cup of warm blueberry compote topped by what appeared to be crushed vanilla wafers. The men at the next table took one look at theirs and asked that it be taken away. Service was slow and hit or miss. We were asked repeatedly if we wanted a bread basket and each time said yes, but it took more than 30 minutes to actually receive it and only when we asked for it a 4th time. Perhaps it was due to a shift change because once we got a waitperson who seemed definitely assigned to our table, service did improve. It was pretty noisy so this isn't a place to try to have a quiet conversation.
Awesome experience at docks itself and catching up with old friends!
Dependable, big, attractive and airy restaurant. We enjoyed our dinners (Seafood Cobb Salad and a special called Shrimp Fettuccine). Service a bit slow, but they had a lot of customers, more likely Le pre-pandemic level. I appreciated that we asked for and were given a quiet table toward the back.
Used to be great basic seafood rest. FOOD WAS FINE BUT SERVICE WAS TERRIBLE MAYBE COIVD RELATED WITH POORLY TRAINED STAFF
We always go to
Docks when in NYC. Great restaurant with great food, service and ambiance. The cocktails and seafood are always recommended and the desserts are Em pointe!
Old, long-standing seafood favorite. Quiet area. Great ambience. Great food and service.
Docks Provided luncheon get together with a
Retired colleague. Maître d’ was most hospitable pleasant and gracious providing my reserve table.
service was excellent promptly taken care of by a waiter named SAL
Food choice was excellent with a Variety of seafood
Land based salads protein choices.
The ambient noise did not interfere with casual conversation
We started with a bottle of Prosecco and the baked oyster casino. Very nice! The shrimp risotto was excellent and my seafood salad was tasty and filling. We shared the dessert sampler which was a nice variety of desserts.
A very nice lunch experience!
Great service and food
The food was very fresh. They ran out of the fish special.
Over priced for quality and quantity.
I loved the tasty oysters, fresh sushi, and amazing crab cake sandwich. I had a very relaxing and productive lunch. The staff was awesome. Everyone was upbeat, friendly, and accommodating.
I dont eat shellfish but do eat fish, although all was fine (excellent service) turns out everything they offer fried is fried in the same oil as their shellfish. I ended up having the NY Strip, it was very good and cooked well too but its priced like a NYC fine steakhouse and it wasn't that quality. My guests loved it and other than my allergies, my problem, Id go back. A bit price but its NY
The food was excellent, and we had a good time. Thanks
Great service Requested quiet table and got it
i took my 33-year-old niece there for her birthday. She loved it! Service was great. Food was excellent. Ambience warm and comfortable.
Excellent mid town seafood!!
Great place, great food, and great location.
Our server didn’t greet us for some time since he was pretty busy and overwhelmed.
