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.

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.

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.

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!
