    Brunch on a Sunday. Early so no much people. Unfortunately I think someone in the staff got sick so the service was a bit stressed but they handled it gracefully. Food really yummy, perfect brunch 🧡

    How wonderful to return to Littleneck after two years away! They have the best Happy Hour oysters in Brooklyn and wonderful dinner options. Friendly staff and relaxed atmosphere makes it one of my favorites.

    Wanted a festive meal, birthday celebration, lobster/seafood fix. This was the perfect place. Oysters fresh and delicious, mushroom toast scrumptious, lobster rolls with butter heavenly, wine by the glass outstanding, Ordered the two desserts available: great. Service attentive and friendly. Sunday street parking a breeze.

    Cute looking restaurant and decent food. Sadly the service is not great. They are less than friendly, and they don’t seem to like having customers or at least that’s how they made us feel. Also the website and menu are very out of date. Probably wouldn’t recommend

    Such a special neighborhood spot! Go for the oysters, the cocktails, the crab roll, and the broccolini (seriously, unmissable). And such a fun, super-casual atmosphere. Like teleporting to Portland, Maine.

    My boyfriend and I came here for a datenight and had an awesome time! We munched on raw oysters and my boyfriend had the crab roll and I had the lobster roll. Everything was delicious! The oysters were ridiculously fresh and each one had it's own unique flavor and tasted AMAZING! My boyfriend enjoyed his crab roll, and I devoured my lobster roll with gusto. While my boyfriend did think it was all a bit too pricey, I thought it was worth it for how delicious the food was and how fresh everything tasted.

    Food is good but sometimes overseasoned and too salty. That goes for the clam chowder, crab roll and fries.

    Littleneck is a great local spot if you’re in the mood for fresh and delicious seafood. The cocktails and food were scrumptious and their mussels are a must try. Ask for extra bread you want to waste the broth.

    I have been coming to this place for a few years. I have always enjoyed the food and service has been most friendly. Today I have been asked to leave in 30 min after getting a menu for a main course… this has never happened before and it was almost embarrassing to me and my friend when we were told we had 30 min. Julia, your customer service technique needs to be polished as you have successfully ruined a Friday night for us!
