Maine Lobster Roll
Charred lobster was delish. Ordered twice. Oysters and clams were fresh and good. Lobster roll was a bit small but overflowing & it came with fries. They were busy, make reservations.
We had an amazing server named Sashua who was super friendly and gave excellent recommendations. The Cherry Bourbon slushy is a must as is the Broccolini, Fish & Chips and Lobster Roll. We wanted to try the Frito Misto but it was sold out. We will most certainly be coming back here soon and can't recommend it enough. The owners also were super nice and created a nice vibe overall.
Great food. Very fresh and tasty. I had the mussels and my husband had the lobster roll. We wish they had a dessert menu!
Main courses took 90 minutes to arrive, waitress seemed quite annoyed at us. Super bad service from seating on...
My favorite restaurant in NY. Absolutely amazing food and cocktails.
Food excellent, as always….the oysters were exceptional, as always!
Kitchen was very very slow this time , & the service staff apologized more than once..but didn’t offer anything comped…luckily, we weren’t in any hurry, so no harm, no foul.
We were seated inside & noise level was pretty high (seemed more so than usual). Still,lively vibe, excellent food….
Littleneck is always a favorite for us! The raw bar and lobster rolls can’t be beat. The staff is wonderful and the drinks are so so good! Absolutely recommend to anyone!
Nice neighborhood spot for seafood. Thoughtful menu, not terribly allergy friendly, but workable. Service was nearly non existent, but friendly enough. Would go back.
Food was top notch and service was excellent
Great find - superb food, wonderful and friendly staff. Makes you feel right at home. If you like fresh seafood, perfectly prepared, then try this place.
The live music was a little too loud, but a small price to pay for a terrific night out.
Some of the best seafood in NYC. Everything we tried was fantastic.
The best oysters I had in a long time, actually better and fresher than my favorite place for oysters at EATS on UES
Stop by if you are around 3rd Avenue in Brooklyn, you will enjoy the food and drinks at Littleneck. The restaurant is neat and staff is friendly!
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
