The Clam in the West Village is (you guessed it) a seafood restaurant that's a safe bet for most occassions.
Birthday dinners for my sister and I. Service was great, I appreciate the attention to food allergies. Thank you :)
The lobster clam sliders were seriously amazing! I could eat those everyday. We all really liked out meal!
It was Mother’s Day and we had a great time! The staff was amazing and the food was great. It’s an intimate place but doesn’t feel claustrophobic. Great location and we will definitely be back!
Always the food and drinks are excellent, nice ambiance and great service
In NYC for 4 days and this was our finest meal. Excellent service with humour & superb fish beautifully prepared. They know how to run a restaurant. Would return & recommend.
Food is always consistently delicious!
Very good food. And VERY noisy.
I tend to be extremely critical but I always appreciate thoughtful service, and well prepared food. The clams are delicious. It was lovely.
We've been here before but this was the best ever. Food was great and service was better. The clam pizza has matured in a really happy direction. Great restaurant.
Carla is the best!
Very romantic and warm restaurant. Cozy atmosphere with awesome food. The clam lobster roll is amazing
One of the best meals of my life. Delightful! (Yes I love clams)
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.
Wonderful service, beautiful ambiance and delicious food. I highly recommend The Clam.
Dinner was delicious, service was great!! We will definitely be 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.
Great energy — friendly staff
The clam chowder is the best !!
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.
Amazing meal as usual! One of my favorite go-to spots in NYC.
Food is ordinary. 1 very medium raviolio (not joking 1) with a bit of lobster for $22 is a bit too much .
Amazing food and experience. Gingerbread and vanilla ice cream sandwich was out of this world
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.
Food was great. Everything was great.
Exquisite food, attentive and friendly service, calm oasis in the bustle of the West Village.
We love this restaurant. It never disappoints. Order any item on the menu. They’re all excellent!
It’s always delic and the staff perfection
great food and service- but gets noisy around 7:30
Vegetable sides were unexpectedly excellent. Lots of fun with clams and very good fish. No one tried the steak or chicken.
Delicious food and good decor. Always like the look of brick walls.
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.
We had the most amazing experience. Food was outstanding as was the service. Can’t say enough good things. Will be returning for sure.
Great lobster / clam sliders and clam dip. Great for fun nibbles but also more grown up fish dishes. West Village classic.
I've now been there 3x for business lunch and food and service are quite consistent. I'm a fish person, my faves there are the clam chowder (how could you go to a place called Clam and not have the chowder) and this awesome single large lobster raviolo. Good bar and wine selection, great staff.
Excellent seafood in a pleasant cozy room
We’ve been about 5 times now and it never disappoints
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.
