Quality seafood and great service

Had dinner with friends here on a Saturday night. The outdoor cafe seating is charming, but a little crowded. The interior is nice, separating the bar area from the dining area which is nice from a noise perspective. We were waited on quickly and served a plate of bread and breadsticks along... read more

One of the best seafood meals you can find, not to mention great location on Greenwich Avenue! Quaint and romantic environment, not stuffy at all, can also eat at the bar for a more casual dinner. Order the seared tuna!

Was meeting my cousin for dinner, but she cancelled at the last minute. Rather than drive home on an empty stomach, I decided to dine here alone. Even though the rest of the crowd was all couples and small groups, the staff could not have made me feel more welcome or more comfortable. And the food was outstanding! Fresh grilled... More

Elm Street is one of the best restaurants in Greenwich. A great bar, wonderful seafood, and a fabulous Sunday brunch.

Fresh, prompt service-- solid food. Classic NYC style wait staff (taking the craft seriously). The restaurant seating area is quite small and cramped and they cram you in a little tightly for my liking. The best place to sit is at the bar and start with a martini. My kids aren't big fish eaters so we haven't taken them to... More

Excellent menu. The food is well prepared and served. Had delicious oysters, appetizers and lunch specials. The space was small and barely fit a stroller. The host for lunch service was rude and made a fuss about seating us because a stiller seemed to be a total inconvenience to the establishment. Has to ask our server twice if are patronage... More

This is a little gem of a restaurant. Our scallops and crab cakes were out of this world! Service was good and staff very friendly. Roasted garlic and Oil served with the bread was awesome! Our meal was brought out promptly. Only negative was no mojitos on the cocktail menu. Would've been perfect to round out the meal with one.... More

Really Fresh Seafood in a relaxed casual setting. Good selection of east coast and west coast oysters daily. A wide selection of wines by the glass. The staff is very friendly. Do not take reservations.

The food in this restaurant is really good - fresh food, you can go wrong with any item on the menu. Service disappointing - nobody greets you, we had to ask to refill the water, they take empty plate when the other [person still eats - small stuff but basic restaurant etiquette. I guess because this restaurant is popular and... More
