    Incredible food. My friend and I went on a Friday and for apps we got oysters and the tuna tartare. My friend got the hanger steak and I got the cod filet. But what was also impressive was how nice and friendly out servers were! Definitely going back. Great food, atmosphere and staff.

    Ordered the peach and burrata salad. Was delish. My lunch mate and I both ordered the crispy tacos which was dry with no taste. Very disappointing. My negative review is mostly regarding the service. The waiter barely tolerated our presence and seemed annoyed to serve us. We were one of three parties having lunch on a Wednesday so he wasn't busy. Just unfriendly. He spoiled the experience for me.

    The ClamResponded on August 24, 2022Dear Antonia, First of all I would like to thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I am terribly sorry the service was so inattentive, I assure you this is not the way to operate here at The Clam. I have already passed your comments about the Tacos to our Executive Chef. I would love to have the opportunity to turn your experience around, and offer you a round of drinks during your next visit to The Clam. Sincerely, Gerardo Tiscareño Castro General Manager

    The service was outstanding. Sometimes you judge a restaurant by how it recovers. We were getting incredible service up until the main course. The waiter came over and said main order got misplaced. immediately he came over with a drink on him. They brought us another appetizer to fill in. Once dinner arrived it was excellent. During dessert they provided us a Panna Cotta. Restaurants have issues but the way they treated us was just perfect. The clam is one of my favorite spots and it just went up in my eyes!!Highly recommended!!$

    A really lovely restaurant, service was amazing. We had some oysters to start along with potato chips with a lovely dip. Then we both had the clam spaghetti and I have to say it was the best spaghetti I have ever had (which I told the chef on the way to the loo). Thoroughly recommended.

    Boy! What a great surprise. My wife and I had 8:00 tickets for The Cherry Lane Theater and I needed a place within walking distance. I had no real expectations as I was not familiar with this restaurant. Well! The halibut I had was just about the best I've ever eaten. The service was outstanding; the atmosphere upscale casual. We also had the side dish of broccoli rabe with almond slivers and garlic, which was as good and tender as my mom used to make. The wine list is extensive but there aren't many "by-the-glass" options, (hint to management). We topped it off with a "just right", frothy cup of capuccino, and made the short walk to the theater in 3 or 4 minutes, 15 minutes before curtain. Its impossible to explain how exceptional our dinner was. You have to experience it for yourself. I highly recommend this place. You need reservations.
