Mini Mermaid Fish Taco
Always delicious and always consistent. Lovely service staff!
Great food, friendly staff, wonderful ambience. That’s why we keep coming back.
Food was good but overpriced and portions were small. Charging $10 for small plain dinner rolls is ridiculous.
As always excellent
Our first server was not friendly and somewhat rude/in a hurry?
Cristian C (#780) attended us at the end was extremely kind/super attentive, gave us all kinds of excellent recommendations and is generally the kind of server that makes me want to come back.
Always a solid meal and experience. You cannot go wrong here. Great food and great cocktails and wine!
Go to spot when meeting up with my old boss who lives uptown. This spot never disappoints and this visit was no exception. Loved everything about the meal.
Love mermaid inn, super enjoyed the happy hour and the outdoor setup, thank you!
great as always!!
Went for the Happy Hour and ended up ordering oysters, clams and a few other items on the Happy Hour menu. We also went off the regular menu. The food is very good. The shellfish was only decent - very good for the happy hour price but I'd be disappointed if I had paid full price. The service was excellent and so was the atmosphere.
I’ve been here many times and enjoyed it but my latest experience was disappointing. The food mediocre, the outdoor space very noisy. I’ll try it again snd hope this was a single bad night.
Great outdoor seating (very inviting, not too close together), excellent server, delicious food. A great experience!
A well run, well managed restaurant with excellent food and a fabulous support staff. Every waiter and bus boy is warm, personable, and exceedingly kind.
From the service to the cocktails to the seafood, everything was top notch! Love the happy hour oysters, too!
Oysters were great had 6 of them, Peruvian octopus was really soft and the side salad was good however the octopus had a bit of burnt char from the grill same with the mini mermaid tacos the calamari was OK the sauce was too sweet way too sweet, the complimentary pudding was a nice ending
Very nice well prepared brunch. Only quibble is that the menu is a bit limited but that’s not a big deal.
First time visiting & it was fantastic. Service and food was amazing and we will absolutely return. Restaurant is huge and beautiful.
Just wonderful service and food! Each and every time!!
Loved it-had always wanted to go there and it was better than I expected. Service was exceptional-caring, attentive, warm and efficient-from Hostess to waiter to bus staff. Food was fresh, tasty and very well
We eat at Mermaid on a regular basis
The food and service are great and the nicest, kindest people work there
Delicious fish. My family enjoyed the branzino, the cod, the tilefish special, the lobster roll and the oysters . Comfortable outdoors with a roof. Fine service.
Service was super friendly
It has been a while, & it was still GREAT!
It is my favorite place to eat in NYC. The happy hour is amazing.
Outdoors comfortable. Excellent concern about vaccination status
Everything was great!
The Mermaid Inn is our special place! Sat in cute streetside cabana. Staff was great, food outstanding. Can't beat those Happy Hour oysters. Ice cold drinks, especially the Hot & Dirty vodka Martini! Can't wait til next time. 🍸🍸🍸
Finally visited Mermaid Inn for drinks + a light dinner before a show in Central Park. I really enjoyed it - they had a great happy hour till 630 (on weekdays). The food was very good - seafood was fresh. The wine was great - my HH drink was more a lemonade versus a cocktail. Still enjoyable. Would visit again!
We loved The Mermaid Inn! We celebrated a birthday here last night and could not have been happier with our experience. The food was reasonably priced with generous portion. Drinks were great. Service was lovely! Will certainly be going back here. This would be a great place to entertain family, clients, etc. as it feels very “classic New York” in a charming way.
Food was outstanding and service was great as well. I love that this restaurant is taking covid vaccines seriously as well. I got the salmon and cannot wait to go back and have it again!
Pleasant, comfortable, stylish restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating . Enjoyed happy hour including oysters and bar service. Clam chowder is smoky, hearty, and filled with clams. Would like to see fish and chips on the menu. Chocolate mousse was a delicious surprise.
Great as always and our server Dylan on point!
Consistently good. Good service and food.
Happy hour is a great deal. Staff is very friendly.
Waiter was wonderful and food was amazing!
Webhad brunch. It was very good. Service was delightful
Cute place, high ratings drew us across town. While I might give this place another chance in the future, our brunch experience this past weekend was not so good. Food came out way too quickly, and it was not hot. The server was so sweet, that we shut up and ate cool eggs that were probably sitting around for a while (maybe made for another table that cancelled?).
Food is always so good!!
The person who took care of our table was Stephanie who was great. Outdoor setup is lovely. Had the ceasar kale salad, tuna crudo and salmon tartare dishes which were all delicious and perfect on a hot steamy NYC night.
Loved Happy Hour at the Mermaid Uptown…loved the tiny lobster rolls, and the Aperol Spritz hit the spot in a warm evening. We sat outside, and yes, the traffic is very noisy, but it’s a tradeoff for feeling safe without a mask. The outside space is cleverly done, with open spaces all around so you get a breeze. So fun to hear people talking and laughing, and at the end the chocolate treat! Heaven.
