Mermaid Fish Tacos

Mini Buttered Lobster Roll
For the food served to me I felt it was meager in portion for the price served.in fact the lobster was the smallest cold water lobster I have ever seen.
The mermaid inn has never disappointed. I would consider us regulars at this point!
Consistently excellent food and very prompt service. Loved my Shrimp PoBoy for brunch. An upper west side treasure.
Nice seafood place in town! The shrimp and lobster here are simply best!
One of our favorite UWS restaurants. Never disappoints!
Since day 1 the Mermaid Inn has been my go to spot with friends and family. Great food, wonderful décor, and helpful staff.
Oysters and cocktails were phenomenal. We enjoyed everything we ordered.
Delicious food and great service. The spot is really nice and inside.
Lovely oysters and other happy hour offers.
From main menu Fish tacos and Lobster roll are amazing.
Service is fast and friendly
Exceptional food, drinks and some of the best people working in NYC restaurants can be found here. If you haven’t been, you should go. If you have been, you already know. 5 stars every time I visit.
Always great, fresh seafood, prepared well, and last night was no exception. I'd suggest sticking to the seafood - the hush puppies were just ok. Service is always terrific, the wonderful ambiance is a surprise along this stretch of Amsterdam.
It is always a treat to dine at Mermaid Inn. The Happy Hour menu alone is worth a visit. The oysters are amazing! Great service and food all aorund.
It was very nice- lovely oysters. Great service!
Outstanding food and service. Great ambience. Definitely return soon
Very delicious and fresh food. Oyster was good, and pan seared special sea food was excellent . Wine is reasonable price so perfect with food.
great happy hour deals and nice outdoor seating.
Always our go-to-place for raw clams and the almost famous lobster roll.
Such a fabulous restaurant. The food is fabulous the service was fantastic the scene is so nice. Highly highly recommend. One of the best in the area.
Great service and amazing food, the perfect combination. Looking forward to another visit.
Our 15 year anniversary!!!
Great outdoor space! Food especially the Branzino done in wood fire superb. In fact anything done in wood fire great
Xlent, as always. The soft-shell crab special was wonderful.
Happy hour menu is perfection, oysters are always fresh, Point Judith calamari salad is a favorite! Glad to see octopus back in the menu.
Love everything about this restaurant - food, service and ambiance. That’s why we eat here on a regular basis. Soft shells were amazing and was great to see whole Branzino served and deboned at table.
We have never missed at the Mermaid Inn. We like to sit at the bar which has plexiglass dividing every two seats. The bartender Landy is friendly, professional and just want you want in a bar tender; never pushy but attentive. We appreciate their happy hour with excellent beer @$6 and signature cocktails or wine @$9; Clams and oysters @$1.25 ea. We share appetizers such as calamari salad and Portuguese squid, perfectly dressed with veggies. This is topped off with complimentary chocolate mousse! Suggest reservations.
Excellent service. At the front desk and throughout the dining the staff was just wonderful - helpful, patient and attentive. Great value for the happy hour. However, I’ve eaten there before and the lobster rolls were much better. These were a bit salty, as was the calamari. Unfortunately, the coffee was not hot. The oysters were delicious and the chocolate mousse finale is a delightful treat.
Delicious food, great atmosphere! Super lively! Will return!
Exceptional pressured; rainy night, but the ambiance and food took away from the inclement weather; company had a great time!
Wonderful for a date night! Every single thing we ordered was delicious. Such a great value, especially if you come early for the happy hour deals and stay for dinner. Our server, Jesse, was outstanding. Overall just a great dining experience, hard to find in the city.
really lovely, great waitstaff, fab food, beautiful ambiance, sat on porch. thank you. 65+ first time dining out since pandemic. great rewelcoming experience!
Excellent!! Always a great meal and great experience. Thank you!!
Best oysters in town, IMO! Food is bomb and consistent but most importantly fast! The drinks are delicious and don’t know if I love brunch or dinner more.
Everything was fantastic !
One of my favorite places in NY. The ambiance is a bit sketchy outdoors because the seating we were in is in traffic basically. The Pandemic extension dining line up with traffic and on Amsterdam you see cars heading right for you. Disconcerting but it cannot ruin a trip to The Mermaid. The service is not only very professional it is also friendly.
It’s always one of my favorite places to eat but last night I really felt rushed by the staff at every level they didn’t give us room to talk and every time we took a bite they were in such a rush to take the plates away. I don’t know why.
Everything we had was excellent - salmon, cod and shrimp - and the service was outstanding!
The food was delicious, if a little pricey. Service was ok but a llittle on the slow side.
Great experience! Miss the crab cake though!!
Our server and waitstaff were friendly and attentive. The food was perfect. The restaurant was clean, a bit cold(sweater recommended).
Oysters and lobster roll were amazing. Fish tacos were good. Service exceptional. One of my favorite places to eat in NYC.
