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...

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

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.

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.

Great clams and oysters on the halfshell. Amazing mussels in curry broth! Service is friendly and attentive. It can get noisy at times. I've been many times and will keep on going back for the superb food.

This is my wife and I's go-to spot for Friday night dates. Always have incredible selection of fresh oysters, great wines and cocktails and the food is delicious. Wait staff are super nice but can be a bit aloof at times, although, that's part of the charm.

Great casual dining spot in Gowanus.
All dishes were very good except the Fish & Chips and salad that were mediocre.

This was the first time at Littleneck and my friend and I will be back. It's a great find out of the normal Park Slope neighbourhood. The food was terrific and the menu was really interesting so when we come back we'll try new things. I heartedly recommend it to anyone who loves seafood.
