Totally underwhelming from the dirty glasses to the aloof waiter. Overpriced mediocre food. My rare tuna was accompanied by some sort of barbaric salad. We will not return. It's a shame because the atmosphere was lovely.
My husband that the Parmesan scallops, and I had the hamburger. We both thoroughly enjoyed our food. The onion rings were great. I’ve had their clam chowder before which was also excellent.
Ordered the special ‘flounder’ en papillote.
Had to send it back because it was raw.
My husband finished his salmon.
When my dish returned, it was cooked but the fish looked macerated and the vegetables were cold.
No desert menu was offered so we asked for the check and left.
No wonder Open Table had so many reservations available on a Saturday night.
We were looking for a restaurant in the Greenwich area as we were in the neighborhood doing other things and happened upon Elm Street Oyster House. It was a perfect choice for an early dinner and the food was superb as was the selection on the menu. The wait service was very accommodating and helpful. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a delicious meal and plan on revisiting next time I am in Greenwich.
Really great Sunday lunch at a place that’s been in town for quite some time. Delicious specials in addition to the regular menu. I hadn’t eaten there for several years, but will definitely be going back much more often.
While my father enjoyed his meal- shrimp, scallops and ravioli, I was a bit disappointed in the seared tuna. It was just ok on a bed of raw vegetables. Definitely not what I was expecting and certainly not worth the price. This was a disappointing meal for sure, although the atmosphere and service was great.
Always friendly and great food. Fried oysters are a must. The Paella and fresh fish are wonderful. I usually get the swordfish but always check the specials for something tasty.
Our meals were absolutely delicious and we definitely plan to come back! Cute, casual, cozy vibe with fresh seafood. Definitely recommend.
reliable... wonderful fish and shellfish with several non-fish items....welcoming always
Great experience as always. This place is always great...lunch, dinner....it doesn’t make a difference. Food is honest and delicious. Solid and well priced wine selection. And last but not least the service....ever so professional, attentive, and very friendly. Great, great place.
Overall good food. Always has been. One peeve ordered grilled fish tacos. It was Salmon???? Should be a whitefish. My fault for not asking but Salmon tacos?
Always great seafood
Fantastic restaurant! always wanted to go here and did NOT disappoint!
This restaurant was very small and quiet. The service was exceptional as was the food and wine. All items were reasonably priced.
The food at Elm Street is excellent and the service is good. However, it's a small space, it's extremely loud---energetic does not begin to cover it---and the tables are so packed in, there is literally less then 3 inches between the tables lined up in the middle of the room. I hadn't been there in a while so had forgotten how tight it is--or maybe they added an extra table or two since I was last there. Anyway, although I really enjoyed the food, I will not be going back.
Love this place-the staff, the food, the intimacy of the space.
We have eaten here before and enjoyed it. Service was terrible. Ordered no starter and main arrived 7 minutes after order. It was cold and microwaved.
Prompt friendly service and excellent food. In and out under an hour which was great for a lunch with business colleagues.
We enjoyed a delicious lunch at Elm Street Oyster House. The Butternut suuash soup with crab meat was an unexpected delight. The steamers were done to perfection and virtually sandless! It is hard to decide what to order since everything is so well prepared and presented. The servers are polite and very helpful about the ingredients in the dishes served.
Fresh and served with a flair!
Love the biscotti ❤️
We all enjoyed nice fresh oysters and littleneck clams on the half shell. We each had a salad with 1) fabulous salmon; 2) lovely seared scallops and 3) grilled shrimp. We were warmly welcomed by the manager (owner?) and our server was terrific.The wines by the glass were quite good, especially the Cab. All in all, a wonderful evening at a loverly neighborhood spot. Greenwich is lucky to have ESOH.
Very enjoyable. Pricey, guess since its a fish/seafood restaurant. Sunday night is a good night to go since wine is half off. Dining room is small, bit tight. Abdul pleasant and good waiter.
Food was excellent. Appetizer prices were higher than should have been
Had dinner at the bar at Elm Street Oyster House and it was just fantastic. The restaurant is very small, but cozy and inviting. The food was outstanding from start to finish - well prepared, fresh and beautifully presented. The bar staff were excellent and there is a decent selection of wine and beer. Limited top shelf selection in terms of beverages, however. To top it all off, the music playlist prepared by the staff was impeccable, appropriate and really enjoyable! I was visiting the area, but if I lived here, I would definitely be a regular at this location to the extent I could justify the prices!
Very welcoming place
Everything we ordered was delicious! You should go and enjoy!
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.
Whole menu is delicious especially the oysters and the tuna. Burgers are said to be tasty as well.
The swordfish was fresh and fabulous! The complimentary biscotti that’s is served with coffee is a great touch.
we had a lovely holiday dinner. The specials were outstanding. Thank you!
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.
The pan fried oysters are fabulous. And the flounder special was superb! Best sea food around.
Always great food. One of my favorite restaurants in Greenwich.
excellent service....and food
have eaten there many times and enjoyed every visit
Always great! The buffalo shrimp is amazing and the service is prompt and efficient
It is our usual practice to come in for a very late brunch on Sundays when the wine is 1/2 price and have at least 3 doz. oysters!
A go to spot in Greenwich. I suggested it to a friend and he said it was one of his favorite spots too!
