Amazing service and even better food. A family favorite
Such a wonderful restaurant! Fresh and delicious seafood, great service, and best ambiance on the UWS!
Amazing restaurant! Great food, drinks were DELICIOUS, and the servers were so gracious. Will definitely be back for happy hour!!!!
OK, we love this local, for us, restaurant. We always have a great time and a great meal. Last night my husband upended the table, glasses, dishes, everything except his glass of beer went flying. They could not have been nicer or more efficient in cleaning everything up. My husband said it was the best Branzino he had ever eaten, anywhere.
One of my favorite restaurants. The food is fantastic, atmosphere is perfect and great service.
Great option for a winter Covid-time outdoor meal. Nice heated outdoor area, very good food and excellent service. My only wish would be for more menu items without peppery spices among the ingredients. But it's a great place to eat!
Great seafood. Oysters, clams excellent. Outstanding lobster roll!
Wonderful as always.
The staff are all terrific and the food is consistently delicious.
Love the Happy Hour menu too.
We went for our anniversary and the service couldn’t have been better! We were congratulated by every person and even brought complimentary glasses of champagne. We felt so special!
Absolutely love The Mermaid! All locations have been superb. Highly recommend to anyone who enjoys seafood, particularly oysters! Always fresh and tasty and they have an excellent Happy Hour. Looking forward to coming back.
Food and service were great. We opted for the outdoor dining option as we understood each table had heaters. However heaters were not strong enough and unfortunately we had to leave very quickly.
I took a good friend here to celebrate her birthday on a very cold Sunday. We both had the farmer’s market which was very good- two lovely poached eggs over vegetables with pesto and whole grain bread. The overheated heat lamps kept us warm and cozy. The service was truly excellent. Overall it was a very good experience.
Excellent service and food. From the time seated at 5pm, we were waited on immediately and food closely followed. Great oysters and drinks! Definitely make it a point to visit during their happy hour!
Check in to reservation was very slow and the hostess seemed to forget about my party
Brought a friend from Massachusetts. Arrived just before happy hour ended, and the server made sure we could squeeze in a dozen oysters. Excellent. We tried a new appetizer creation, suggested by the server, for the grilled octopus, with I believe fava beans and a romesco sauce, with the octopus tender and tasty as always. Also excellent. And the manager then came over just to ask what we thought. For main course, I suggested the chorizo crusted cod for my friend (I like it so much, i copied it as best i could to make it at home recently) and I had the lobster roll. The server was helpful but unobtrusive throughout, and we never felt rushed, which has been my only concern in some past visits.
Just an enjoyable night out at a time when that is truly rare.
Outside dining was great. Well ventilated with heaters. Waiter/kitchen seemed busy some things came out a lot faster than others. Put in for three things at the same time, the happy hour one came out right away but the regular ones were both a long wait. We didn’t mind eating at different times but that might bother others.
I really enjoyed my meal and appreciate the great service. The drinks and food were very good. Thank you for making my solo birthday adventure special.
Fabulous service, delicious food, and cute ambiance!
Everything was terrific except that the music was too loud to be able to have a conversation comfortably. Service was excellent as always at Mermaid.
Great experience, service was outstanding, food was very good
Very good food. Well prepared, well spiced. I liked it.
Great food and great service as always!
Great as always.
Birthday dinner for my daughter! Excellent food, and fun despite chill ones of eating outside.
Oysters and clams! Tacos are pretty good. The Gouda Mac and cheese is delicious. Will come back.
Great food ambiance service
Always good food. Great service. Love the happy hour oysters. Loved the salmon dinner. My partner had lobster roll. Loved it.
I wanted the best lobster roll in manhattan after the cousins lobster truck left, so this came up online and it IS the best!!! So much lobster packed in with not too much mayo. The real Maine deal. Also terrific french fries came with it. I ate outside.
The service was perfect, which i hadnt really expected. I will go back soon and often.
Took family to happy hour to enjoy oyster special. Waitress kept telling us that bus person could not place order even though they removed waste. Totally confused, why wouldn’t the bus person tell server that we wanted more of an item and if they wouldn’t then why would our server be so distracted and failed to check on the table regularly?
It’s Happy hour ppl are there to take advantage of the special the restaurant used to get them there! Previous times this didn’t happen so service was rated 1 star, no problem with anything else
Delicious New Years Dinner!!
Mermaid Inn is a fave for seafood and their New Year's eve package, while priced premium to the a la carte regular menu, was well executed and very satisfying. Service was attentive, not rushed, and friendly. It's still a fave spot.
We went for the NYE prix fixe and really enjoyed all four courses! Great service - well-staffed, cute ambiance, good drinks and delicious food in a well-thought out prix fixe menu.
We ate at this restaurant 2 times in the same week. Atmosphere very nice, food is good. Disappointing there is no dessert menu to speak of.
Great outdoor setup and attentive service. Lobster roll was delicious!
Great service. Food was very enjoyable but service was a standout.
Mermaid Inn is one of those places that is always consistently good: the food, the drinks, the service. We go there often enough that we’re never disappointed. They’ve changed up the menu a bit recently & everything we had from it was delicious. The Happy Hour menu alone is worth a visit!
I have frequented the Mermaid numerous times over the last decade, and it simply does not disappoint.
The hot buttered rolls alone make this place worth going even for a vegetarian. Also, five-star pandemic safety: outdoor tables (real outdoors, not a shed claiming to be outdoors) with heat lamps, and vaccine cards checked even for outdoor dining.
We all loved our first visit to the Mermaid INN! From all the happy greetings when we first arrived and were seated, to our friendly waiter and wait staff, to the delicious food and beverage, we enjoyed our experience from beginning to end. Wonderful happy hour menu, delicious menu items, and a sweet complimentary dessert. We will be back!
Wonderful service, amazing food! Definitely adding to my list of favorites!!!
