Food was phenomenal. Server left a bit to be desired. He did not earn the automatic 20% gratuity that the restaurant adds to the bill.
Wow, what a great addition to the Boston restaurant scene. Absolutely fresh and delicious fish and seafood in a gorgeous and romantic setting.
Service was top notch, food was delicious. The Persimmons sauce on the Hamachi crudo is one of the best sauces I have ever tasted!
Great food and service. People are packed in pretty tightly so it’s fairly loud but that’s just part of the ambiance here.
Amazing entrees, oysters are yummy, excellent wine list...really enjoy Select...
Sat at the bar, halibut and swordfish were wonderful!!!
Superb! The food is outstanding!
Oysters are amazing
Mussels are great
Four other dishes were just average
Came here for a birthday dinner. Really fresh selection of seafood. Great service. A bit pricey, but worth it.
Good but they rushed us which was super annoying and rude.
Fantastic staff!! Friendly, great guidance, so welcoming!!!
Best meal of our visit to Boston!!
Cozy ambiance great service and delicious fish. Enjoyed our evening very much.
Excellent cocktails, and delicious, healthy meals. Highly recommend it.
Incredible evening. Our server, Michelle was absolutely top-flight. Attentive and super knowledgeable about all things alcohol and food. Can not wait to return. Michelle even had a little birthday cake for our friend. So great!
The food was really fantastic! Plus the place was quiet.
Food was great. It's awful though you have to wait 30min while you actually have a reservation...
Everything is always perfect.
Wonderful service and food and specialty drinks!
Sooooo good!! The food was absolutely perfect and our server was wonderful!
We love this place!!
Where do I start. Too tight seating. Virtually no aisle space anywhere. Overpriced, the only Chardonnay $19...really! Tip of 20% added to bill...really? Restrooms downstairs right next to kitchen...really!?!
Select Oyster is one of the best restaurants in Boston, in my opinion. Their dishes are always creative and very delicious. My friend whom I introduced to Select Oyster doesn't eat seafood, and thought that the non-seafood items we ordered were delicious. The only thing I wish the restaurant had is more table seating. It's hard to talk to people when seated at the bar.
Very friendly. No frills service and great food.
Awesome. Great wait staff. Funny. Really top food. Not very Boston.
Totally awesome. Served at the bar, which turned out to be great! The halibut and the whole bream - - - can't remember a better quality fish experience! Flavor, presentation, portion, preparation - EVERYTHING just wonderful. My new GO TO spot in Boston. One of the best of the best!
Great and friendly chef/owner.
Great staff!! A neighborhood gem.
The food was delicious and the staff were very helpful, attentive and informative. We sat at the bar and enjoyed the ambience of people coming and going around us. The freshness of the seafood was excellent. Highly recommend this restaurant.
Overall, this oyster bar is excellent in terms of ambiance, taste, and location. Space is a little too small for a group.
Food was a bit uneven. Last few times I was here, the food was uniformly great. This time some dishes were disappointing - the swordfish was a bit boring in design, and also overcooked and dried out. The Sazerac was overly sweet. Other dishes were great as before. Service is great as always.
Fantastic fresh seafood. Service was excellent. Not cheap, but totally with it.
Wonderful, small space that served up amazing ousters & seafood. The wait staff was pleasant and very helpful. The scallop ceviche was DIVINE!! Can’t wait to go back.
We love it and keep coming back. Great oysters, great fish.
Excellent food and service. We were seating promptly and our server was helpful and attentive. The food was delicious and all enjoyed in relaxed environment. Well wort visiting!
Another awesome meal at Select Oyster House. I try to eat here every time I’m in town.
Great seafood, I ate the whole ocean. Clams and oysters were spot on. The crudo was on the money, bluefin toro all day.
Oysters were awesome, our waitress/bartender Sarah made our experience that much better! She was busy but very attentive to us as well as the rest of the bar.
Great service and fantastic food- I went twice in 3 days!
Although we had reservations we had to wait for almost 40 minutes
always a good meal here and this weekend didn't disappoint!
Select Oyster Bar gets a lot of press, so has a lot to live up to. It exceeded our expectations. The food is spectacular, the portion sizes are ample, value is great, and the service is fantastic. It's a small place, crowded and noisy, but that, I suppose, is the price of success.
