Always so good, great vibe, love supporting this awesome restaurant.
Great food with accommodating and friendly staff. Highly recommend
Littleneck is a super restaurant in all ways! Great cocktails, oysters and delicious entrees and one spectacular dessert. Service is hospitable and accommodating. We had a lovely outdoor table and enjoyed a celebratory dinner. This spot is as excellent as it is unpretentious. I recommend with enthusiasm.
Perfect spot for a seafood stop in the less expensive 3rd Avenue of Brooklyn. Food is well done, service is above average, and the room is a bit funky but clean and orderly. Don’t show up without a reservation, not a lot of seats and they have a steady following if locals.
The food at Littleneck is excellent and puts you in vacation mode. We had a great experience! There is limited seating outside, but if you have a reservation it’s pleasant to sit in the small outdoor seating area.
Love Little Neck! The food is always excellent but the oysters are the best here. So so fresh! Also loved the razor clam ceviche, I hope they keep it on the menu.
Great restaurant. We ordered 8 things on the menu and they were all great. Oysters and little necks were the standout. Everyone is so pleasant.
I love littleneck! The service is always so warm and friendly and the food is amazing. I got the specials for happy hour with a friend and we were both so impressed by them.
5 Stars! Great seafood and the best staff! We'll definitely be back soon!
As always, everything was amazing. Food, service etc. always great.
Great fresh seafood treated sensibly and keeping the taste of the sea
Friendly welcome by owner and staff
Amazing! Love their food and ambiance
I love Littleneck! Food is wonderful and I always have a great meal there.
Staff is really friendly and accommodating. My only small issue is that their wine pour has gotten a bit stingy. If there are a few of you, definitely go for the bottle!
Always a winner
Outstanding neighborhood clam shack. This place is great.
A great meal, what was amazing: fritto misto, fish & chips, lobster roll, fried clam roll. If you like caraway seeds, try the slaw, it’s light and crunchy.
Celebrated Mother’s day there.
Great spot (Outstanding oysters)
It was superb overall. Way surpassed our expectations.
We hadn’t been to Littleneck in a few years and we’ll definitely be back soon. The oysters and steamers were fantastic - truly top notch. My husband had a soft shell crab sandwich that was also great. Service excellent. Wine delish. We were sitting outside on a chilly evening and the cold didn’t bother us the food was so good!
Bloody Mary’s, pickles, oysters, lobsters rolls, fries and everything are all excellent!
Food was really good! Oysters are a bit pricey so you can't really have much, but the clam toast and lemon ricotta pancakes was on point. Cocktails were refreshing as well.
Love this place.
The food; the vibe; the drinks; the osyters!
Exceptional oyster! Great Gowanus ambiance!
The food was great, drinks were refreshing. The service was really poor. Our hostess was extremely rude, and standoffish. We asked for refills and more oysters, and she told us she needs to check because they were working for 15 hours and they were closing the kitchen between 3 and 5pm. I mentioned that I didn't want to inconvenience anybody. She came back with our extra 4 oysters and drink without saying a word.
Best seafood around!
We went to Littleneck to celebrate some big family milestones. We had a great time. The service was outstanding and the food absolutely delicious. We chose a number of dishes to share "family style " and the presentation was fabulous! Can't wait to return.
Once again, Littleneck proves to be our favorite raw bar & seafood joint in town. The clams and oysters are always as fresh as possible. Arrive early for the happy hour oysters which are a serious bargain. The pea-shoot salad is not to be missed. This time we also shared a bowl of steamers, which were perfect. The service is always just about perfect, not too much hovering, and no pressure to move you out quickly, even when the place is busy...
Would have liked to know cash only
This restaurant was reccomended to us by a friend. My husband and I met up with a family member and from the moment we entered we knew we would like this spot. The vibe is cozy and relaxed. Lovely ambiance and the servers are all lovely. The food portions are great and if you like vodka, I highly reccommend the 4422 cocktail
Come for the incredible fresh oysters and stay for the lobster roll. The Portuguese Stew is out of this world good! Perfect, no frills NE seafood joint
One of my favorite restaurants in Brooklyn! Always amazing!!
Great chowder! The Charred Broccolini is delicious! Cocktails are lovely!
This place is the best.
Took my husband here for his birthday and we had a great time! Food was outstanding and reasonably priced. Just be warned the restaurant is cash only. They have an ATM in the back though, so it's not a hassle.
Been here before. Food was vastly improved. Delicious. Absolutely recommend.
Despite it being early and not super busy, our waiter left us hanging for longer than seemed reasonable, prompting us to skip extra oysters and dessert in favor of an early exit. The food and drinks were excellent.
We go every few years and are always pleased. Fresh oysters that taste of the sea, delicious perfectly fried fish and chips and a sumptuous Portuguese Stew
I love Littleneck and go there often. This time was a little disappointing. My lobster roll tasted kinda old and there were a number of pieces of small shell (ouch). But I've been here many, many times and the food is usually so delicious—the mussels, the fish and chips, and the lobster fritter are faves—that I'm not worried. Mistakes can happen and overall, I highly recommend Littleneck.
Foods was delicious, and our server was everything we could have asked for. Thank you!
Good food and good service is a great combination. We made it for happy hour so got to taste more food. It was a great experience being from out of town.
