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.
Fuimos a festejar entre amigos por una ocasión MUY especial y fuimos atendidos de diez!! Estuvimos en un sector aparatado, exclusivo para nosotros y la pasamos de maravillas. El
Servicio, la atención y la calidad son excelentes!! Los tragos merecen un 10 aparte!!!
Staff is great!! Had excellent suggestions. Very good oyster selection and the cocktail menu is stellar.
Interesting wine list that is frequently rotated. Oyster happy hour is a great deal too
The first servant was so obsessed with him self that he did not take notice of us
Funny guy with hair hanging in front of his face
He was even putting the arms in our oyesters
I like the place but maybe a course with the staff is good
Great for happy hour drinks and snacks, especially if you like oysters. Big cocktail menu. Very busy, loud happy hour spot but they take reservations!
We went for the Oyster Happy Hour! And we’re extrem pleased with our food, cocktails, and ambience. We are looking forward to going back in the spring and summer.
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.
Great cocktails with nice light bite.
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
great drinks, very loud but to be expected. Great staff.
This is such a good place for oysters!! And their other options are good as well! It is a fun experience!
This place is an incredible find in an area where there are 10 restaurants per block. Labeled a “cocktail bar,” the cocktails live up to their price. More surprisingly, the food was divine and by the end of the evening, our group of friends ended up ordering most the menu. I was nervous about the cost of each option and the fact that it is a “small plate” restaurant, but the portions were larger than expected and well worth the price. Order the chickpea fries, burrata, steak tartare (easily a full dinner portion), and brandade de morue (cod dip). Overall, can’t go wrong with this place. It’s a smaller spot, so making a reservation was a good call. Great service to round out a great evening.
I loved coming here with my friends for my birthday. We had so much fun. The only problem was that we were mistakenly overcharged and had problems resolving. But eventually it was resolved.
The staff was incredibly accommodating for a last minute birthday reservations for like 25 people. Really saved us after a last minute cancellation of venue. Also the food and ambiance are excellent. We had a great time. Great service too. Manager Lilly was amazing.
Friendly neighborhood place. Oysters were fresh and delicious. Prompt but unobtrusive service.
Very nice place, only thing that wasn’t that good is our place we were seated right in front of the kitchen we were literally seeing the dishwasher washing dishes ..
I had a reservation at Sel Rrose for a party of 6 at 7:15pm. I confirmed the reservation 1-2 nights prior. Then 30 mins prior to our reservation I received an email saying that we didn't show for our reservation, when 7:15 hasn't even passed yet. I called the restaurant, no answer. We show up to the reservation, all 6 of us in fact arrived early, and they apologized for the confusion and sat us. However, when we were seated, they told us there would be a 2 hour limit. Then at 7:45pm (our drinks had just come/still waiting for our food), they asked if we could finish by 8:30 for another party. It was absolutely ridiculous to be rushed and we did not appreciate the way our reservation was handled. In the end we expressed that we were upset, and were left alone to finish our meal in peace.
Our food wasn’t spaced out properly so we weren’t able to really enjoy each course.
Terrible waiter service.
Enjoyed this place, service was great, the staff is super friendly and the ambience is nice..
The happy hour is a good time to visit. The Oysters are amazing and the shrimp cocktail too.
We only had about 35 minutes to suck down some oysters and truffle fries. The service was absolutely amazing, and the food came out quick, even with a fully packed restaurant. Perfect date spot in which I would love to go back!
Buen lugar para comer ostras, happy Hour conveniente/ buenos tragos
Saturday night we opted for Olga Raffault Chinon Rose 2017, a perfect accompaniment. I won’t lie, it is a bit pricey-our tab was $140 but we got good food & wine for our $.
Oyster happy hour was great, service amazing!
Fast and friendly service. Delicious oysters and cocktails!
Beast oysters ever, excellent service. Clean , fun, and nice.
The best thing about Sel Rose is the seafood platter - oysters, mussels, lobster and shrimp on two marvellous tiers. Good cocktails and wines too.
Amazing menu -- food and drinks are all creative and top quality. Host was excellent. Great vibe. The only problem was our waiter, who was a bit inattentive. He just seemed way too busy, they probably just need more waitstaff.
one of my favorites in nyc. the oysters are divine.
The oysters included in the happy hour are some of the best I've had ever, let alone in Manhattan. Really worth the trip. Cocktails are interesting and the rest of the small plates menu is great.
Always love coming here. It was raining outside but they still made accommodations for us. Waitress was not the friendliest but they switched about halfway in and the waiter was much better. Great food and atmosphere! Food is really good. I recommend the chickpea fries and deviled eggs!
Totally unexpected Great atmosphere great food and drinks!
Come for oyster happy hour. You won’t be disappointed
We would have preferred to sit outside as it is extremely loud inside. The food we had was just ok. I like the vibe and the cocktail list looks great so I would go back.
Treated us very well for a small wedding party. It was a romantic and perfect location and the service was attentive and kind.
Very cute place with amazing cocktails and oyster happy hour
Excellent dinner, drinks and service. The vibe was so great.
My neighborhood go-to for oyster/cocktail brunch. Good service, excellent sharing plates (especially for the price!), and pretty interior. Highly recommend the truffle fries. Might avoid this place for happy hour, as every time I've tried, there's been a lengthy wait.
This was my second time at Sel Rrose. Still amazing cocktails, but disappointed to see my poor experience in service was not confined to one time. Both servers who tended to us were completely impersonal and unwelcoming - and hardly came to check on us. I waited with an empty glass for 10 min before resigning to move to a different place instead of getting another cocktail at Sel Rrose. DYNAMITE cocktails. But I probably won't bring someone I want to impress.
