Sel Rrose is a New York City oyster bar specializing in craft cocktails. The name is a nod to Rrose Sélavy, the feminine alter ego of artist Marcel Duchamp. Duchamp's presence can also be seen in the decor inspired by early 20th century Paris. Industrial design elements pay tribute to his use of the readymade as an art object.

However, the bar is very much at home on its corner of Bowery and Delancey. Paying homage to the rich and lively history of the Bowery and its dance halls and oyster cellars, the atmosphere is convivial and warm. The cocktails are inspired by Duchamp's 1921 readymade perfume, Belle Haleine. The current menu features the revolving selection of the freshest oysters, french fare sourcing local ingredients, and a full raw bar.

    We went to See Rrose on a Friday night. Everything started out great; really excellent service from the hostess and waiters. The drinks are good, and the food is fine. However the issues started when the hostess came over to us about 45 minutes from our 7:30 reservation time to tell us she had our table booked for a party coming at 9pm, she wouldn't be able to hold our table for much longer past that. We continued with our meal, meanwhile the hostess continued to come over to us to start asking us to leave because of the 9pm reservation... She also started trying to get another couple (who came in after we did) seated next to us to leave as well. Finally at 9, the hostess just drops the check off without us asking for it, and we still had unfinished drinks on the table. For a place that is so pricey, I honestly didn't appreciate being treated like that.

    A great spot for happy hour, cocktails, or even later for dinner. Oysters are DELICIOUS. They are not $1 during happy hour as advertised online, but they are still discounted and better in quality and selection than the average oyster happy hour. Cocktails are very good, and I love that they have a wide selection of orange wine. Worth trying to make a reservation if you're able - often busy, even earlier in the night. Can't wait to go back!

    The place was extremely noisy. We were five but we were given only one napkin. The food was extremely expensive for the amount and quality. The five of us traveled all over the world and cannot help to compare quality-amount-price. I wouldn’t recommend it. The waiter was nice and polite.

    The food was great, ambience was great but we had an awful waiter that ruined the experience. He was so rude when asked about food, drinks and our forms of payment at the end. He kept suggesting we pay in a way different then what we wanted-this happened 5-6 times Rude throughout the whole dinner, he made one member in our party cry and leave the table. I don’t recommend.

    The food and cocktails were outstanding, and the crowd was hip and attractive. That noise level, though -- off the charts. (We're probably older than the average patrons, but sheesh.) Get an acoustical engineer in there and the joint would be perfect.

    Loved Sel Rose. Drinks are very good. Stuck with the Aperol Spritz this day. We ordered oysters of course which are always yum, deviled eggs and the steak tartare. Loved the tartare but the deviled eggs did not taste fresh, seems like they had them in the fridge for a while, which made them taste a bit stale. Overall had a great experience and would go back again.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at your restaurant! The beef ribs just melted in the mouth, the calamari chick pea salad was very refreshing on a hot day, the Steak Tartar was delicious and the burrata (which I had never had before) was amazing, so creamy! Great food and great company, thank you!!

    Love the oysters happy hour but was a little disappointed there was no cocktail happy hour. We sat outside right next to construction so the ambiance wasn’t ideal but that’s not the restaurants fault. The decor inside and the bathrooms were very cute. Definitely plan on coming back!

    I brought a friend here to celebrate her birthday dinner. Oyster happy hour was great. The wine was wonderful. We snacked on crispy Brussels sprouts and truffle fries which were incredible. The cheesecake was delicious and they even brought it with a candle! The wait staff was attentive but not cloistering. The noice level was medium/low and we were able to chat, eat and drink for hours. It was a lovely night.

    The food was outstanding, and wine selection perfect. What let this wonderful restaurant down was the presentation and conduct of its staff. You want to be greeted by someone engaging and you don’t want to hear staff taking about their issues with the kitchen staff and leaning against the bar looking bored and disinterested. When you spend $200 you want the level of excellence to be everything not just the food.

    Wait staff and hostess were rude. We walked in and the hostess tried to put us at a small table for 2, even though our reservation was for 3. When I asked why we couldn’t sit at one of the available, larger tables, she said it was because they were reserved. I reminded her I also had a reservation and she said “well you just made your reservation 10 minutes, those had earlier reservations.” I’ve never heard that before, didn’t realize there were tiers of reservations. After making it clear we wouldn’t be happy at a 2 top table when the reservation was for 3, the hostess moved us to an appropriately sized table. Then when I asked the server if they still had the burger on the menu, which comes up immediately when you google the restaurant as a “must have” item, he rudely said “we haven’t had that on the menu in years” in a very condescending tone. Overall the service experience was extremely poor. Which is a shame because the food and ambience are great
