I thought oysters on smaller size, but generally food was good. It seemed there was one waiter for large section and in my opinion he was really busy.

There was an empty table under a working fan that we asked to move to (it was over 90 degrees), but they told us it was reserved. Reserved for whom, i don’t know, because no one came the entire time we were there.they are supposed to give complimentary chocolate pudding for dessert, and we did not receive it. Servers were snooty and not very interested. Food was only fair. There are so many much better seafood places in the city, there is NO reason to ever go here!!! I will NEVER go back!!!!

Even so, it was a great time. Our waitress was very attentive but not overly so. Drinks were cold, oysters were tasty and we had the best time. Definitely going back!

We received a free appetizer to compensate for the delay and ended up with a perfect outside table on a gorgeous day. Thankful they had a non-alcoholic beer on the menu. Prices are a bit high but that’s to be expected in the West Village. Food is very good though.

My friend and I were craving oysters and got 2 dozen, the bean fries, and lobster Mac and cheese. The food was AMAZING and Jesse the bartender made our night!!! Will be coming back. Such a fun crowd at the bar too.
