What Insiders Are Saying
Maison Premiere is the coolest place in Williamsburg to eat oysters and drink cocktails.
Amazing first time!
Amazing place in the heart of Williamsburg. We absolutely loved the the vibe, the decor, and the service. Oyster connoisseurs will love their wide selection of oysters from all over North America. The drinks are great too. We will definitely come back!
I absolutely love it here. This restaurant has a great vibe, really good lighting, great music and the service was impeccable.
The food, drink and service were all outstanding. The décor was so beautifully done - the thoughtful details were everywhere. I can't wait to return.
Great cocktails and oysters
Great food, cocktails, service, and ambiance. A new favorite spot in a neighborhood full of terrific restaurants.
I love MP. It’s one of the absolute best places in nyc
The servers ALWAYS offer a superb experience here. What's in our glasses and on our plates ALWAYS makes us want to come back.
RYAN IS THE CONSUMMATE MANGER AND RAISES THE BAR FOR PROFESSIONALISM
These guys are the best, it was a special night for me and my girlfriend that was made even better by the very attentive staff and amazing food at Maison Premiere. I could not fault this venue at all and would definitely recommend it to anyone! Thank you so much!
We sat at the back bar The guy opening the oysters was horrific he was in such a terrible mood slamming plates grunting banging utensils around that we were scared if we asked to be moved he might stab us. The poor girl working with him looked terrified it really spoilt our night.
Oysters are always great. The chowder was little too salty.
Total power move. I was high on gumbo. And the drinks are amazing.
Best service ever. Well done everyone :)
Fabulous place. Old school charm. Outstanding oyster bar & cocktails. Excellent fish dishes.
We had a great New Years eve, attentive waiters, good food and perfect atmosphere
Amazing oysters, lobster, and sea food selection.
My absolute favorite place in Brooklyn
I love this restaurant’s ambiance and concept and have been dining at Maison Premiere for 5-6 years. Unfortunately the service is extremely inconsistent from visit to visit and on this evening in particular it was horrible. We waited over 20 minutes for our cocktails. Our food, which was ordered after our cocktails, began arriving prior to our drinks. We were stuck drinking water with our oyster order. We eventually cancelled the bottle of wine we had ordered, as our meal was complete by the time the bottle arrived at the table.
Best cocktails and selection of oysters in a cozy setting
The service was exceptional!! The ambiance, presentation of food excellent. Special touches that made my birthday dinner.
Sat at the bar which was perfect for an early dinner . Got the chefs choice oysters , lobster roll and sea bass . All excellent . Nice bartenders with no attitude. Beautiful room too - decorated for Xmas . You feel like your in a perfect small neighborhood secret .
Waitress had a ton of attitude for no reason. We order oysters which arrived relatively quickly. However when we discovered that we had 3 oysters missing the waitress insinuated that we were at fault. After speaking with the manager the issue was resolved but the entire situation left us with a bad taste in our mouths, despite the oysters being delicious and fresh. #losetheattitude
I love my gf
This is one of the best restaurants I have ever been in my life and I ve visited hundreds of places all over the world. Their oysters happy hour is the best: 13 kinds of oysters for 1-1.5$ each. We got them all. All are different and super fresh! The rest of the food is great too!
Nice spot for a Sunday brunch. The food, service, and ambiance were just what we wanted.
Maison premier is awesome. Amazing place have been there for several times. Last night all was perfect tough the service was not great (servers not knowing about oyster types, very long wait once seated before getting served etc) though experience is already great
We went for Thanksgiving dinner at Maison Premiere - not an obvious choice as this is first and foremost a raw bar with a limited number of tables for dinner seating. But it turned out perfect for the occasion. Great ambiance, very attentive and friendly staff and the set 3 course dinner was tasty and offered a choice also for those who don’t like turkey. The cocktails are to die for. We loved it and will come back for oysters next time.
Enjoyed the Thanksgiving prefix but found the dessert lacking.
Best NYC dining experience. Immaculate concept, service and food.
The oyster shucker spilt cocktail sauce all over my blouse and there was no apology or compensation from the staff.
Food was average
Overall a bit disappointed, don’t think there was great value for money.
Best bar in Brooklyn. An absolute must for cocktail fans.
Just perfect on all fronts. Best absinthe bar in NYC. Maybe best bar in NYC, period.
Awesome as always!! Perfect for a romantic brunch. Especially if you enjoy oysters...a must!!
Very beautiful setting, we were really excited when we came in/ sat down, really nice waiters, however the quality of the food was really really bad (lobster smelled of ammonia and the some kind of fish stew was not refined at all, level of a school kitchen). Nice wine cart. Overall way to expensive for such low level of food quality.
The diver scallops and oysters were exquisite! As were the absinthe drips.
Friendly and accommodating Host, Server, and Bartend, from start to finish. The selection and freshness of the oysters were impeccable. The warmth of the vintage candle lit french chateau interior was perfect for our 10th anniversary. The cocktails were superbly designed and executed, and we loved the pink stone bar top we sat at. This place and our experience was sexy n delicious.
