ESOH is, and always will be, the best special date spot in Greenwich. Whether lunch or dinner, the staff is extremely professional and sweet. The food is constantly delicious.
Restaurant consistently has excellent food and the management is very nice and professional.
This was my 2nd dinner here. I thought it was excellent the first time. This time was very good but I disliked what I ordered. I would not judge the restaurant on this one dish, especially having been before. It was the paella. They say it is not typical paella on the menu and I wasn't expecting it to taste like Spain! The entire dish reeked through and through with the strong taste of pimenton (smoked paprika). I love chorizo (which has pimenton in it) in my paella but the whole thing tasted like someone dumped a couple of tablespoons of the spice in it. Everything else was good and I'm sure this was a fluke.
I ordered a "stout" beer by pointing to the name on the menu. But a beer that looks and smells like an IPA was brought. I complained it but the server told me, "That's the one you want." I had to get another waiter to to prove this was not "stout". As you know, stout looks dark. It was a tough moment for me.
I really like The Elm Street Oyster House. I normally go for lunch not dinner. The oysters are amazing and I really like the atmosphere. The staff are very nice. It's very busy normally and I've never had a bad meal.
Good food. Big portions. Very good. One of our favorites
Great restaurant with a good wine selection -:service was very attentive -
Always love Elm Street. Fresh seafood and friendly staff. Love the fried oysters. The biscotti with coffee is a nice touch.
First visit. Went for fish. Sunday Brunch Menu
Settled for Eggs Benedict. Excellent preparation. Good wines..
So disappointed in my dish! I thought it way over-salted, greasy, and poorly seasoned (fish tacos). Plus my tomatoes in the salad seemed partially frozen and mealy. Bleh...
Very delicious food, wine and good service. Would definitely return.
We have been coming to this restaurant for years and have always loved it. This time seems like an exception, but we were very disappointed. We had to wait 20 min for our reservation (after the time booked) and they put 3 people into a table clearly made for 2. I realize the restaurant is small and it was a busy Sat evening, but the chair on the outside was bumped into every single time anyone (including the waiters) walked past. The food was just okay and looked like it was thrown onto the plates in a hurry. I will try this restaurant again, hoping this was just an off-night, but I hope it is not a sign of things to come.
The paella was terrible and expensive. The fries were fantastic.
Fabulous, fresh, healthy and delicious seafood in a light and happy atmosphere. The perfect place for lunch while shopping The Avenue or an excellent choice for date night or dinner with friends. Cozy dining and a very nice / chic bar
Very nice place and made to feel welcome when you arrived. The menu was great. I ordered the mussels and they we ok but not the best I have ever had. It was early afternoon and there were few people in when we arrived, but a little noisy.
Nice place for a Sunday lunch.
This was our first visit and we sat in the dining room and had a delicious meal. The service was excellent and our waiter was very attentive without hovering. I had the seared tuna which was excellent and we split the iceberg wedge salad. The salad wasn’t exactly wedges - but it was flavorful and good. My daughter had a hamburger and my step sister had the scallops which she was very happy with. The restaurant was full, but the noise level from our table at the window was very bearable and the service still fast. We also liked the by-the-glass wine list which had something for everyone.
I thought it was quite nice. The fried oysters were good. My fish was excellent. One item that was a bit underwhelming was the lobster roll. It was a bit messy, not presented well, and didn’t have very much flavor. We’ve been here a few times and liked it...maybe it was the rush of NYE but was a bit disappointed.
large selection of seafood, as expected, all tasty; good service and not too loud
Always great food & service.
THE FOOD WAS SUPERB. THE WAITERS WERE WONDERFUL. I LOVE THIS PLACE!
Consistently good with has a nice cozy atmosphere
Nice place. Food was very good. I had the Sake Salmon and the Muscles which were well. Solid but simple seafood menu that you will have no worries bringing friends and family to.
very disappointed ... expected more. The tuna appetizer at $22 was mostly mango and desserts were nothing special. I had grilled shrimp for a main and they were good. Also a good selection of oysters that were very fresh
Honored reservation for (2), Offered chose of tables. Great service from all staff & Management.
Great food. Enjoyed a great dinner with Friend. Can't wait to go back.
As usual, great food and great service. A favorite dining spot.
Always good and reliable
Food consistently high quality. Some items a bit expensive but you get what you pay for. Only complaint is seating a bit cramped.
Always has an excellent selection of fresh oysters and their specials are a tempting fresh take on fresh fish. I noticed they had the Impossible Burger as a special but had to opt for the in-season Bay Scallops - which were excellent.
The food was very good. Seafood is a safe bet one person ordered steak,and it was ok. Nice place. Pricey,but a good place to go for a special meal.
Excellent in every way. Superior food and service
We were a group of 4 at the restaurant this past Saturday. With reservations they sat us in the middle of the floor which was too tight for a table of 4. The food was very good including my fried calamari, which would have done better stacked horizontally instead of vertically, although I liked the presentation. The reason I say that is the calamari at the bottom were a bit soggy although cooked perfectly. I also had the crab cakes which were seasoned and cooked very good. They also need some sound absorbing tiles on the ceiling since it was impossible to hear others in my party.
If everything was cooked perfectly and presentation did not affect the food, I give the food 5 stars unlike others who freely give 5 stars. You are not helping other viewers or even the restaurant. Always room for improvement.
Yes, I will go back.
Food is always fresh and well prepared. Servers are pleasant and accommodate requests.
Good restaurant, but WAY TOO LOUD (unless you sit at bar). Was screaming to my dinner mate across the table. Hated it.
It was just nothing special.
Always a great experience!
Amazing as always. While there are go to items on the menu we always check out the specials. This time we had parmesian crusted Georgia Banks flounder over fettuccini. Fabulous!
Lots of Fresh fish options! Generous portions.
Delicious creative sauces.
Nice place and great food
Food quality was quite good but prices weren’t reasonable,
$9 draft beer and $3.75 per oyster. Entrees were also $27 and up.
