Seafood
Maison Premiere serves a daily list of over 30 varieties of oysters along with an American seafood menu. Dishes include sea urchin, fresh crudo, and a selection of shared plates and entrees. The award-winning cocktail menu takes original inspiration from classic cocktails and re-imagines them as innovative, thoughtful expressions. Inspired by New York hotel lobbies of bygone days, afternoons of leisure in Parisian cafes, and the charm of New Orleans’ Olde Absinthe House, Maison Premiere offers a truly unique dining experience.

The intimate space contains a small dining room, a horse-shoe shaped cocktail bar, and special counter seating at the oyster bar. The full dinner menu is available at all areas of the space. In the summer, from June to September, the lush garden provides additional seating amidst an enchanted scenery.

    I went under special pretenses.. I was supposed to take someone there but Those plans fell apart and I took someone else. The selection of food didn’t appeal to me, I’m not a seafood person. My partner enjoyed it though, which is what counts. She loved the oysters! And the drinks were great. It was very loud in there. Wasn’t in the greatest of spirits but made the best of it. I doubt I would return there for the fact that the food selection I was not feeling. But if you like seafood then this is the place for you.

    This little place is like stepping back in time in France. We were greeted immediately and taken to a small booth in the back behind the bar. I had mentioned in the rez that it was my mom's bday and they had a handwritten card for her on the table and then brought champagne! Nice touch. The oysters were amazing, the hamachi was so fresh and the scallops in brown butter....OMG. Melted in your mouth. We also got the lobster rolls where were delicious and had so much lobster...worth the money. Our only thing was, being admitted wine snobs, we are spoiled in CA. So the wine selections which are predominantly French were probably very good, we stuggled to find a big enough cab to suit out taste. (To each their own, we could have gotten a cocktail if we really wanted). Either way, you MUST go here if you enjoy outstanding food and can appreciate a dimly lit little French hole-in-the-wall that isn't pretentious.

    I don’t know how Maison Premiere somehow makes every special occasion more special and more surprising! It’s always been perfect, but each time is more perfect than the last. I’ll steal Ryan’s quote, “It’s the dream you never want to wake up from!” So true!!! Thanks so much to Ryan, Emanuel, Emeline (sorry about the spelling, Michael, John’s bananas foster (!), and every one else who works so hard and so brilliantly and so lovingly to make Maison Premiere our favorite place!

    We came for oyster Happy Hour and what a fantastic experience. Oysters were delicious, also the scallop. But what was even more tasteful were the papardelle with a unique sauce of lobster with chili and safran, we ordered a second plate and I can even taste it now while writing about it. All in all with the wonderful French-New Orleans style atmosphere in dim light with friendly service this was a wonderful evening. We can only highly recommend it, thank you Maison Premiere, you really are!

    We had a lovely brunch at Maison Premiere. The food, the ambiance, the service, the drinks: all are top notch. Our party of four had one vegan eater, one vegetarian, one non-drinker and one meat lover and all of us found something on the menu that not only fit our dietary needs, but tasted delicious (& was plated beautifully, too). With all the good press it has received, I was afraid the restaurant would be one of those that tries a little too hard, but Maison Premiere doesn’t feel anything like that. There is a wonderful, easy vibe there. Highly recommend!

    We were seated promptly for Sunday Brunch @ 3PM. We had some wonderful cocktails from an excellent bartender. I ordered a nice variety of seafood ( excellent oyster choices) for a starters. For the entree the Mrs had the dirty rice with eggs and I went with the wagging tartar. We finished with Canelé & Madeleines and Absinthe Panna Cotta (wow on both). Service was excellent and we were never rushed through this wonderful meal

    Maison Premier was my favorite dining experience on a two week holiday in New York. The cocktails were outstanding, a huge variety of oysters to choose from and they were all very fresh and well shucked. The ambience was perfect for a romantic evening. Staff was very friendly and very attentive.

    I am a local restaurant/hotel entrepreneur. I live in the neighborhood and your establishment is one that I have gone to for years and will continue to. Maison Premiere is where I go to when I’m alone to relax after a long intense week or show off to friends that are connoisseurs of food and drinks that have never been. I understand how music adds to the ambiance of a restaurant but not to the hospitality. I choose my visits carefully according to the level of volume. As I mentioned, your restaurant stands out above the rest and I will continue to dine at 298 Bedford Ave but I wish my conversations were ones of less strain. Best,Rebecca Borden

    Loved everything about Maison Premiere and highly recommend it. The bar is fabulous - loved the vibe and watching the bartenders mix cocktails was mesmerizing. Had the King Cole Martini and wow! Will be back to have another. Food was spectacular and do not miss the oyster bar. Absolutely delicious East Coast oysters that I shared with my dining companion. The black bass was excellent and the coffee was the best coffee I have ever had!!! I was so blown away by it and have to find the beans to make at home. All in all, just a wonderful experience. Please hurry and go. Absinthe fountain was very cool to check out as well.
