Wonderful food and service
Excellent food, service, decor and all around dining experience!
Happy hour was amazing as always.
Awesome new addition to the neighborhood. We can’t wait to go back! Love the lobster roll!
It was a birthday celebration and sent a request they do something nice. And I’d have been fine if it’s not something they typically do, but they ignored it and did nothing with zero mention.
We love all mermaid inn loc
This was the happiest place- I felt comfortable with the spaced seating for COVID precautions. I felt honored because I was there celebrating and the waitress gave me a pudding and sparkling wine as a 'congratulations!' It was just a really feel good experience and I was dining alone. What a treat! I'd definitely come again next time I'm in the city.
Loved the happy hour martini.
Great experience. Food, ambience, service, clean decor; no complaints only gratitude.
I haven’t stopped thinking about our meal at The Mermaid Inn all week! Everything was absolute perfection. Thank you to Sam & Matt for making our Christmas Eve feel like a true holiday!
Everything good!!! Services, food, decoration are all nice. Too bad no dessert menu though.
Was such a good experience. Service and ambiance was great.
Food was wonderful too. Good value also.
We will definitely return
We love the Mermaid Inn on the UWS and wanted to give the new location a try. It did not disappoint! The food and atmosphere were amazing. 5++++ stars.
Great, elegantly decorated space, very good food, ample drinks, friendly service.
Always GREAT - except this time had a screaming infant/child ruin the ambience.
Delicious food, excellent cocktails, attentive waitstaff and a lovely environment. We had a great time.
The Mermaid Inn has been a favorite for years! We came during happy hour for delicious (and very affordable) east coast oysters, salmon tartare, New England clam chowder and more… all fresh, and perfectly proportioned. The vibe was cheerful yet calm, the service elegant while friendly and casual, the food, and cocktails were delicious. We loved the Hot & Dirty—perfect drink for a crisply chilly night!
Only had oysters
Had a lovely dinner here last night. Food and service were excellent. Would definitely come back when I’m visiting again.
Delightful dinner with family. Loved the seafood tower-super fresh fish.
I love Mermaid Inn (all of them) the menu is consistently good and I have the go-to dishes that I love. The service is always good and the Chelsea outpost is no different. Congrats to the team as they have down to a well-oiled machine with fantastic cocktails, service, and food!
Amazing place, food and service. We loved oysters, claim soup and cocktails. Recommended
I used to live in NYC and was visiting with my husband the other weekend. It was great to be back at one of my favorite restaurants. The night we went you all were busy, which made me so happy. All the best!
Great atmosphere and meal!
Everything was great except the tables are very small and very. Lose to each other
Otherwise a great dinner
I would go back for sure
Excellent seafood, it doesn't get any better then this.
My server was absolutely amazing and attentive and the timing of the food was excellent. Their version of ceviche was a nice presentation and an interesting combination of flavors of citrus juxtaposed with pepper. The hush puppies would have been delicious if not so heavily salted, so had to enjoy them for the duration of the meal and not just as an appetizer. Finally the COD was delicious, but again the bitterness of the greens did not pair well with the sweetness of the accompanying purée.
Excellent food and service, and the complimentary chocolate puddings at the end of the evening were a nice surprise. The happy hour menu is a particularly good value.
Great food. Amazing service and great happy hour. Fabulous neighborhood restaurant
Great time, good food lovely evening!
Food was good, oysters were great and very fresh. Would not go for the simply grilled salmon again, as it’s $27 vs the salmon entree for $29. Same piece of fish
Very good. A bit loud, but cheery and festive. Great lace to go in my neighborhood. Good quality, a tad expensive, but look forward to happy hour with friends in the future
Fabulous food, fabulous service.
First time here. Photographs are awesome. Food was delicious. Can’t wait to go back
The food was super. We had the lobster escargot style appetizers, 18 oysters to share for three of us. Then I had the Branzino, it was amazing. The server Dave was very nice and friendly and explained his suggestions. The complimentary pudding for dessert was perfect. I’ll definitely come back since it is the only great restaurant in west Chelsea where we live other than casual spots which are good to great but not amazing like Mermaid Inn was this time of the last two times I’ve been since they opened. Danny: Thank you for opening up here (again)
Wonderful new addition to Chelsea. Pretty place, great food - staff is extremely professional and just lovely.
Our server was wonderful. The food was all great. Excellent ambiance.
Fabulous meal and service! And they even brought dessert for my birthday! Thoughtful.
The service was exceptional as was the food. Looking forward to returning.
