Outdoor seating is excellent, even on cold days the heat lamps do the trick. Best happy hour drinks and snacks in the city!

Danielle especially made the evening and experience delightful. She is attentive yet not hovering, and just the perfect server. Iwe enjoyed everything we ordered.
Aiden who also assisted at times was very helpful and added to the pleasant evening.
We were seated quickly although we arrived early for our reservation. Loved the food and will be returning.

Found this little place during a walking tour of Greenwich Village and made our way back after making a late reservation. The tour guide joked that Village eateries were notoriously pretentious, and at first blush, it was an accurate assessment. But after trying shrimp tostada, green beans tempura and hot buttered rolls, we were both completely sold. A brief, yet accurate description of several types of oysters imported from all over the continent enticed us to sample them all, and the complimentary handmade pudding for dessert was delicious as well. We HIGHLY recommend this experience, and will DEFINITELY return here…

We loved this place! We arrived just before happy hour ended and our server made sure we got the happy hour prices for drinks and oysters. The food was excellent, service was super friendly, and the place itself was really cool.

We splurged and had the grand platter appetizer. It was magical and so with the cod, the outdoor ambiance, and the service. It made for a truly delightful Christmas Eve and we will treasure the evening for years to come!!!

We tried the fish tacos, the octopus salad and the calamari salad- all delicious! We were comfortable despite the fact we were outside and they did not seat us in the "shed" as requested but it was not the coldest of nights. Perfectly fine at 50+ degrees!
