Mini Buttered Lobster Roll
Outstanding as always!!!
Overall a very good experience. But my seared tuna was only good but not more that that - it lacked a real flavor and the sauce and sides did not really help it. Wedge salad with blue cheese, red onions, bacon, etc. was quite good and I would recommend it. It would have helped to have a real dessert.
I love The Mermaid Inn and have been many times over the years. It was nice being inside. Only my second indoor dining experience in over a year. However, the eggs Benedict with nova salmon was pretty bland. The English muffin was too hard to even cut into. They overdid it on the sauce and just a tiny bit of fresh sprouts. I would have preferred salad over potatoes. But that wasn’t offered. The Bloody Mary was delicious with a rim of sea salt and old bay seasoning - a nice spin! I need to stick to fresh fish and seafood, particularly the clams and oysters as they are always fresh and satisfying!
The service was impeccable and the food was delicious...love those oysters! Also, the outdoor seating is great which includes a lamp per table.
Paulina was great as always. Food was delish. Had a delicious meal and laughed a lot.
Fish tacos need more fish In it, if you sit by the sliding/ garage doors you will freeze. Lobster roll shrunk from my last visit.
Food was phenomenal!!!
It’s great to feel normal again and the staff couldn’t be nicer!
Great restaurant. Friendly waitstaff with attentive service. Nice Happy Hour menu. Definitely will be back! Oh and the Salmon entree was slamming!!!
I have been to this restaurant from time to time and I always come back. I haven't been there in over a year because of NYC restrictions. This is the first restaurant I thought of and came to. I have not gone anywhere in Manhattan since the restrictions. I am so happy to return. Our Waiter was very nice. Dinner was delicious and the end with the little chocolate pudding is delightful! Thank You for a lovely dinner. I hope I can still return to NYC spend money and have fun!
Always on point!
A lovely Easter Sunday Brunch spot! We both had the market salad and the pesto was delicious! Would’ve wanted a few more bread options and a heartier salad, but it was still delicious and we enjoyed the outdoor seating and heat lamps to soften the chill. Service was excellent and would recommend to friends.
We dined outdoors, it was spaced well, service was very attentive and food tasty and well presented. I suggest the "lobster escargot" for starters, delicious!
Great outdoor setup. Service and food were wonderful.
Excellent outside dining experience. Great drink and fresh seafood.
We ate in a parking place. It was the first time eating out for all of us. They did a great job of keeping us warm and feeling safe.
Happy to be dining back inside! They have done a great job with barriers and social distancing. The food hasn’t missed a beat! I enjoyed the Calamari as my appetizer and the Lobster Roll as my main course. Both delicious. They also had a great play list.
Always an awesome time and a great experience
Great place for a date. I chose the place because my significant other and I love seafood. A little pricey on entrees since the cod I got was a little smaller than I expected and what I saw on the pics, but overall, great service. Great vibe. We were sat in the front and it was a little chilly that day. I think I would have prefered a table at the back at that point.
Mike Lopez is awesome !!!
Excellent food and great service. Reasonably priced for UWS too! Will be back
The BEST happy hour in Manhattan!
Such delicious food, oysters so fresh, loved the yellowtail ceviche with yuzu, great chowder and of course mousse to finish it off. The outdoor structure was comfortable and inviting. Very competent and kind waitstaff.
Love the happy hour appetizers at Mermaid Inn. Lobster Roll consistently delicious.
As usual great service snd really good food.
Love the oysters and the fish is excellent.
Fantastic place for brunch both inside and outside. Great service, delicious food, great ambiance.
This is one of my favorite places to eat when I want to splurge. The food is excellent and they have gone out of their way to create a fantastic ambience during the quarantine. It's pricey, but worth it for special occasions.
Food was excellent, but service was lukewarm. The server said all the right things, but seemed distracted and hurried. Almost felt like we were being rushed out.
Has been abs always will be my favorite restaurant in Manhattan. I’m sad the east village location closed but the food and service at all locations is always top notch. We always get there early for happy hour to enjoy some oysters before dinner. Can’t wait to go back!
Mermaid is consistently great. Food, service, ambiance. It’s our favorite restaurant.
Good food - in a safe and comfortable and warm outdoor setting. One of my neighborhood favorites - especially during the pandemic. Try the lobster role - excellent. The Hush Puppies are also excellent with the spicy sauce!! Free chocolate pudding for dessert!! The crab cake was okay - I wish I could report differently. But there’s so much else good food it’s worth eating here any time!! Gracious and good service too.
Often at Happy Hours with oysters, the service can be quite slow so you cannot take full advantage of ordering at the HH price. This was absolutely not the case at the Mermaid Inn. Everything came out so quickly and the service was fantastic overall. The quality of all the raw seafood we ate was great. We weren't so impressed by most of the cooked dishes on the menu, but the crab cake is worth an order! Lots of crab.
Always a great experience in all the ways. Consistently good.
service and food were great! the ambiance was wonderful and very covid friendly. i can't wait to go back!
My first time at this location. Used to dine at the one in the East Village, Service, food excellent!!
Nice to take a small step back toward normalcy with a wonderful brunch.
This was our first venture to dining outside of the home, since the start of the pandemic. We were very pleased. Not only was the food and service excellent, as always, the outdoor dining set-up made us feel very safe.
