Upon entering Mermaid Oyster Bar, diners feel as though they have escaped the city on a beach vacation. Offering delicious food in a welcoming atmosphere, patrons can enjoy a relaxing and leisurely dining experience away from the hustle & bustle of busy New York City streets. Bringing a bite of the beach to the West Village, this casual neighborhood spot combines a laid-back fish shack mentality with a menu that reads like an oyster bar’s greatest hits: an extensive raw bar; clam shack favorites like steamers, mussels and fried oysters; and a variety of simply prepared whole fish and fish sandwiches. The cocktails and beers on tap and the rollicking classic rock-country playlist evoke the nostalgia of summer on every visit.

The restaurant was really great, a big oyster selection, good drinks. My husband and I shared a dozen of East and West coast oysters, all of which were on point, tuna tartare tacos, which are a must, and lobster claws escargot style, which was also very good. We also had one lobster roll each, which was absolutely divine! The service was great, everyone was very attentive to us. Really highly recommend!

We had a birthday celebration here recently. Started with Happy Hour and went into dinner. The raw oyster and clams are the freshest I’ve ever tasted, huge and cleaned well with no grit.
The ambiance was warm and welcoming and the service excellent and attentive. Waitress brought out complimentary pudding with candle for my friend’s birthday and the rest of the party. Appreciate that the waitress read my comment that this was a birthday celebration on the Open table reservation.
I definitely will be back and recommend this restaurant to all my friends and family for a relaxing and lovely evening dinner.
