Great place. Amazing and fresh seafood.
Select Oyster Bar is our favorite seafood restaurant in Back Bay. Avocado toast, salmon crudo and the daily selection of oysters are must haves!
The freshest seafood in Boston! The seafood tower is a must try!
Great service despite being understaffed. Everyone was working twice as hard. The culinary delights were quite tasty and the drinks crafted with love.
As always oysters and crudo were fabulous. Good selection of wine by the glass.
Delicious as always great food great service my go to
Fantastic food, & service was immaculate! Highly recommend.
The service was great but the food was just okay.
Fresh fresh fresh. Delicious delicious delicious. Not complicated, just well prepared.
Excellent, reliable service and food. Some of the outdoor tables don't have much ambience but they can only do so much right now.
I ate here two weeks ago and it was wonderful. But last night was a different story. The cauliflower appetizer was not cooked enough, raw and not that tasty. The swordfish was mediocre. Very disappointed as I usually love this restaurant.
The food that my wife and I had was very good. I should have thought through the implications for the automatic 20% gratuity. I don't tip 20% for average service, and I don't tip 20% ($17.60) for someone to open an $88 bottle of wine. I would go again for the food and skip the wine.
Food was fine but none of the dishes were particularly flavorful or remarkable. I was expecting higher quality overall.
Meals came out except one
Not a real apology from staff
My visiting nieces wanted to go to a seafood restaurant. They'd never had lobster or oysters. Why not start at the top? Simply amazing. Service was great as well.
Excellent food and service best of Boston!!
Great food - fresh, meticulous, creative. Not cheap but overall good value. Friendly, warm and intelligent service. Only problem is that the noise level in the back porch, where we were sitting, was unbearably high - could hardly hear each other across the table.
We love Select Oyster. Great food great people. Spectacular experience
Always good, on the pricer side though, one can’t have a meal for two with wine for less than $100 per person 🤨
Amazing food, so many flavours in each dish! Highly recommend
Delicious oysters! There were two people in my party who didn’t think they would like raw oysters. I convinced them to order a few from the a la carte menu. They liked them so much that we ended up ordering a platter.
Wait staff were very friendly and solicitous of an older disabled woman in our party. This restaurant has a welcoming, friendly vibe, and the food is great.
Good quality seafood and oysters. Ceviche and octopus were delicious and prepared perfectly. Cauliflower salad was beautifully presented and delicious. Lobster roll is good, but not worth the money.
Overall, nice experience, pleasant staff. Would go back.
Exquisite seafood in a cozy and laid back ambiance. Fantastic wine list and great cocktails. Wonderful selection of local bivalves. Exceptional service.
Food continues to be excellent and creative. One of the best oyster places around with other excellent crudo, tartare and shellfish options. Sat outside on a beautiful evening. Service was exceptional.
Excellent local seafood - special occasion hosting our west coast family. Seafood towers are amazing. Everyone loved it.
Oysters were fantastic….swordfish was out of this world…great bar service a d wine list.
I absolutely love it here. We got the small seafood tower and a couple glasses of wine. The recommendations were all outstanding, can't wait to come back!
Love this place. Both the food and service are excellent.
Oysters are unbelievably good!
Too cramped. Very loud. Tiny four tops. Main entrees were good not great. Oysters were great.
Best food in town!
Restaurant has a wonderful vibe and food is excellent!
We had a fantastic meal.
We really enjoyed the food here and the service was great. We will definitely eat here again when we return to Boston.
They have a wide selection of fresh, cold, best quality oysters from both coasts & Canada, shucked to perfection with great sauces. Great service, knowledgeable wine assistance and good vibe. Indoor opposite bar seating a little tight for 4.
Ceviche was overrated , it should have been much better compared to other food served.
Excellent, fresh food. Wonderful service, very accommodating with dietary restrictions.
Sat outside. Great waiter and accommodating service. Oysters were the star. Fish was solid. Maine uni delicious. Expected a little more for price, nothing outstanding. But overall good time.
This is one of my favorite restaurants in Boston, never had a bad experience in at least a half dozen visits
Waitress was awesome, very helpful and informative, the staff was very accommodating to my injury, super friendly, and attentive to my needs. Food was phenomenal. Couldn’t have been a better experience honestly. Thank you
We sat at the bar and Ben gave us outstanding service. He was attentive and knowledgeable and the fresh seafood was incredible. We enjoyed every starter and the raw oysters were delectable. The restaurant does an amazing job of serving the fresh items very chilled, which was refreshing.
