The Clam is a new 50 seat neighborhood restaurant drawing its inspiration from one of our favorite ingredients, the clam. Mike Price, chef and co-owner, offers a menu that celebrates seasonal, market driven ingredients as well as showcases influences of the Atlantic seaboard. The menu boasts a variety of clam dishes, some classic, some with a new twist and fun originals. The menu is rounded out with iced shellfish, salads, appetizers as well as meat and local seafood entrées. Desserts follow suit, and are inspired by the seasonal and local market offerings. All made in-house, the approach is simple and straightforward with something for everyone. Our shared vision and common goal is to offer genuine hospitality to our guests, garner relationships and establish ourselves not only as a neighborhood gem but also a Greenwich Village destination where our guests can be confident that their experiences are sure to be exceptional.

The Clam is always a delight. We were a family foursome--nephew and daughter in law. Conversation flowed easily as we merrily tasted each other's choices and shared a lovely bottle of wine. It is a splurge for us, but one that does not disappoint. I also love the corner windows and the glow at sunset.

Very pleasant west Village environment. Loved the chowder. Halibut great too - great crustiness and perfectly cooked. Parker house rolls were a must too. Yeasty goodness! Nice wine list by the glass. Easy to be there, friendly service, delicious food. I'll go back.

Quite possibly the worst dining experience in my 25 years in NYC. So loud you cannot have a conversation. So cramped you cannot get out of your seat. It was a production to get out took two servers and two other tables getting up. Whole fish came inedible in that you couldn’t get to the meat. Over priced and uncomfortable.

We had a long, leisurely dinner to catch up after a number of years. We were not rushed at all and service was attentive and unobtrusive (a pet peeve). I had the yuzu fluke appetizer and the grilled whole fish (sea bream), both of which were beautifully presented and well flavored. My companions had the clam dip (perfectly crisped homemade potato chips) and a salad, and halibut and char. We had french fries for the table, which were delicious, I confess I couldn't stop eating them even after I couldn't fit another thing in. Drinks and wine were all great. I have to remember to go there more often, it's a terrific seafood restaurant with great service.

My husband and I are in NYC for the Tribeca film festival and thought this was a good place to kick off our stay. I had steamed clams and raw clams (love clams) and they were excellent. My husband had Grilled Bree. Which he loved. We would definitely go back.

An excellent dining experience on our last night in NYC, during a vacation. Efficient booking and confirmation, warm welcome, great ambience, pleasant, efficient and interested service by the whole team, an excellent wine list at reasonable prices. The food was outstanding in preparation, quality and presentation. It tasted superb, our highlights were dishes of scallops (starters), halibut and stuffed clams (entrees), together with a delightful sorbet - everything was well done. The NY state Reisling was much enjoyed.

Just a great experience! Thank you to the team at The Clam.

The staff were wonderfully patient as 2 of our party of 4 were 15 minutes late arriving which on a Friday night at 7 was tough on their table turning. But the staff were super gracious and did not make us feel uncomfortable. We’ve eaten here a few times over the last few years , the food is reliably good and just interesting enough to appeal to foodies and non fish eaters alike. It’s an intimate restaurant and quite charming. The staff are definitely a big plus, very knowledgeable about their food and seem to enjoy what they’re doing , very much creating a fun atmosphere to be in. I would highly recommend The Clam for its food, cocktails and fantastic staff.

Always a wonderful dining experience. The host staff is welcoming, the wait staff pleasant and helpful and the food delicious. We normally share three courses, each prepared perfectly and served in a timely manner. Don't forget cocktails, especially a Greenhook martini, and wines by the glass (generous pour). No disappointments.

I was a little disappointed. We ordered two whole fish entrees and was told the fish of the day was grill branzino but what was served was a completely different type of fish. The restaurant didn’t even attempt to tell us until we asked the question.
