The Clam is a 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.

This is my second time coming here. Good ambiance. Nice selection of wine. Special of the day was excellent (grilled branzino). Wish they had more clams on the menu though!

The Clam is a "must visit" restaurant every time I'm in New York City. The talented kitchen and staff always deliver an impressive experience. Attention to detail and staff training are important, and it shows in the preparation of each dish. For example, I've never experienced a broken shell, or improperly cleaned oyster in the raw bar. The quality of seafood is among the best I've experienced in the city; even when compared to the more famous and expensive restaurants. Standouts on this visit were the tuna tartare, with a rich umami from the truffle and soy sauce, served with crisp wasabi crackers. The clam slider in a rich buttery brioche was mouthwatering and the filet mignon was fork tender over a sauce Bordelaise. The Clam features an impressive and compelling wine list, curated by wine director David Giuliano. Service was friendly, attentive and knowledgable. I cant wait for my next visit to The Clam!

Although I rarely provide feedback this is a favorite restaurant not only for the food but the management of the restaurant which is cordial and warm.

Very good seafood restaurant with reasonable (for NYC) prices. Specially good were the bluefin tuna and clam chowder appetizers and the flounder Entree. Good, quiet ambiance and good service. Decent wine list with a range of choices

The Clam is one of our very favorite restaurants in NYC. Why? It feels like an intimate neighborhood restaurant but it's food is among the best you'll find in the City. They do the "must-haves" out of this world - like the crispy chicken, but they also have inventive dishes that are hard to find elsewhere and you'll come back to time and time again - like Spaghetti and (whole) Clams and Lobster & Clam sliders. Why else? - the chef - Mike Price and his staff, are attentive and talented.

Delicious food, creatively seasoned. Clam chowder is an award winner - and that from someone from Boston. Steamers were sweet and clean. Butter lettuce and asparagus salad so fresh with a dash of sea salt. Just right. Friendly, professional service. 2pm was a perfect time for lunch. First of many future experiences. Thanks to this talented group.

Everything is super tasty here. The clam lobster sliders are a must. The cocktails are all fantastic except the watermelon tequila. The cinnamon doesn’t work. But the basil drink. Amaze. Definitely get the ice cream sandwich. Def get the tuna. And their entree on top of gnocchi was really scrumptious. Everything just tasted real clean and not complex. Flavorful

We always put the Clam on our dinner list whenever we go to New York. The food and service are always wonderful and welcoming, the restaurant cozy and the neighborhood charming. There simply isn't anything with which to take issue, and that's a rarity in the restaurant world.

The food is really not very good. Been there twice.mthis time Inhad the clam and lobster sliders. Tell me how a restaurant called “clam” serves clam strips with no bellies and seems to have no idea what to do with a clam? Avoid,

Just ok. Oysters need work. I wasn’t blown away. But it didn’t suck either. Just “was”. Salmon was probably the best thing we had

Went recently for an anniversary dinner. The food was absolutely delicious...definitely a good place to go for quality sea food. Had the salmon and my wife had the flounder both of which we enjoyed The restaurant is in a fairly quiet west village block and is in a cute space. Romantic vibe but definitely gets loud when the room is full which it was the night we were there.

Overall great experience and will go back

I love The Clam having eaten their many, many times. Tonight I was disappointed to see they had increased prices quite a bit, adding $5 to the pasta and clams entree which is a favorite. My other challenge with tonight’s meal was how ridiculously loud it was all night. The noise level had everyone talking louder and louder to be heard. I wished we had sat outside.
