    We are big fans of the Little Owl and wanted to try The Clam since it is a sister restaurant. We loved The Clam! The staff was friendly and welcoming. We enjoyed the atmosphere of the restaurant and loved the menu. It was challenging to decide what to order - so many items sounded great, including the cocktails! Our server was very helpful and patient with us as we tried to decide among the tempting options. We had the Brussels sprouts for an appetizer, and I had the New England clam chowder - it lived up to its reputation! For entrees, I had the grilled branzino with butternut squash risotto which was excellent, and DH had the cod which he thoroughly enjoyed and thought was a creative combination of flavors. We had the cookie ice cream sandwich and the bread pudding for dessert. Both delicious! We will be back so we can try some of the other inviting menu items!

    Overall, everything was just ok. All the food was overly salty. The outdoor heated seating wasn’t warm enough since they kept the flaps open. There was a whole homeless man sitting next to the outdoor seating as well. Service was also slowish but I’d like to give them another chance when they have scallops, mussels, and tartare back on the menu

    We've been meaning to try The Clam for years- finally made it! And we were NOT disappointed. The weather was mild, so we opted for their outdoor seating, which is absolutely gorgeous with lovely ambience. The food was superb as was the service. Drinks were also amazing. Will definitely be back!

    Great dinner in their outside seating. As it was a date night, we were actually able to hear each other which is rare. The oysters were delicious, the autumn salad was great and our fish entrees were delicious. Friendly service and a night out for two didn’t break the bank (as is too often in NYC these days).

    The food was just OK. The spaghetti with clam sauce was disappointing. Too much gloppy tomato-based sauce that kind of drowns the pasta. The arugula on top just wilts and doesn’t add anything. The mozzarella salad was pretty good, but expensive. The quality of the food was not worth the cost.
