Bar Staff were superb! Drinks & Food were excellent. Dining area & bar was super crowded & noisy - took away from the experience though - felt rushed. Would definitely try again but not at a busy time.

Very good reviews on Scallops so we had that for dinner, the scallops were good, but a little on the smaller size, 5 mid size pieces rather than 3 larger ones like in the photos. We shared a calamari appetizer and it was excellent, in fact the best we have ever had. Front part is a bar (with open windows... More

Recently renovated, this superb restaurant has an inviting bar and casual seating area open to the street. The menu is interesting and varied. We liked the duck spring rolls, artisanal pasta with lobster, halibut and short ribs, Key Lime pie. The vibe is hip, the food and service very professionally executed.

Had dinner here recently with a party of 4. Every meal was excellent. The great part about it was that all the meals were prepared very uniquely with flavors I had not experienced before with those dishes. So I was pleasantly surprised. The chef is very creative. This was the best meal I had all summer by far. The cost... More

My husband and I made a reservation at the Frisky Oyster for our second night. Although we stopped by on our first night and made the reservation - the only openings they had were at 5:30 and 9:15 so we chose the later time. Even at arriving at 9 pm the restaurant was packed and we had to wait at... More

A varied, if a little pricey, menus. We both had delicious salads and the duck and the scallops. I thought my duck was wonderfully prepared but my husband is still talking about his scallops. We were a bit disappointed that the wine list did not include more locals wines but overall, we had a very enjoyable dinner.

My husband and I travelled from Southampton for a wonderful dinner! We started with tuna tartar and calamari, both were excellent. Our entrees were wonderful, duck, cooked to perfection and ahi tuna, prepared exactly how my husband loves it. The wine list is extensive and our server, Karen, was attentive. Definitely will return, with friends!!!

We weren't that impressed with the food, especially for the price. The atmosphere is nice and the location good in the middle of town.

Good service, price is about right for Long Island. I had the duck with garlic polenta which was quite nice. my only complaint was it was extremely noisy and hard to carry on a conversation.
