Elm Street Oyster House Ratings and Reviews
It's quite obvious the Busboy cooked our meals. Ive been going there on and off for about 5 years. My calimari with anchovies and hot peppers- was inedible. This doesn't mean you you open a can or anchovies and a bottle of hot peppers and dump them on soggy calimari. It's the first time I've returned a meal in a restaurant probably in 20 years. Very tired food and a pushy waiter. Add that to my dates lobster mac n cheese at 26$ which had 3 pieces of lobster and watery pasta. They have to install a change at the leadership level. I think they've become comfortable with their historical success.
Very disappointing. We arrived at 11:30 am for lunch which is when they open and there wasn’t a waiter available. The service was poor and the food was mediocre. The bathrooms weren’t clean (men’s and women’s) and the chair rail next to the table was dirty and dusty. Actually shocked this place is in the middle of Greenwich. Would not return.
The entire restaurant was packed and they sat us on top of a heater and we were boiling! They finally turned it off halfway through dinner. 3/4 if us got the special which was the grouper. It came out cold and the fish didn’t taste very fresh, yuck. The sides of broccolini and potatoes weren’t good either. Wouldn’t go back to this place.
Waited for a table almost half an hour past reservation time. Then was required to close out bar tab rather than transfer to dinner check. Noise level was so loud had hard time having a conversation with friends. The owner did provide some fried calamari for the wait but only two of the four of us eat it.
The service and food were fresh and delicious. Unfortunately the other issues made it much less enjoyable. The table was packed into middle of room and wasn't very comfy either. I'd go on a weeknight when not as crowded next time.
We were in the area and decided for a quick dinner on Sunday evening. We were a bit surprised as there was hardly any patrons. We settled for simplicity and had appetizers or salads. We had the macadamia nut encrusted salmon salad which was as good as ever. The east coast oysters were fabulous as was the lobster bisque. It is a nice place to go and the food is marvelous.
I had the stuffed flounder which was good, and my husband was happy with the blackened swordfish. However, I would have ordered the tuna if it had not been so pricey at $42. I think this is a rich person's diner. I think there are other places to go for good fish with better value.
We came here for my boyfriend's belated birthday lunch! It was so wonderful. The food was phenomenal and the service was fantastic! We had all of our questions answered and also received great recommendations from the servers. We will definitely make the 1.5 drive to go back again soon. Highly recommend!!!
I was traveling to Greenwich on business and found this restaurant through TripAdvisor. The reviews were spot on! While the restaurant was a little noisy, it had a vibrant, joyful feel. From the entre to the dessert, the service was impeccable and the food was positively delicious.
