Elm Street is a really nice, cozy spot, just off the main drag in Greenwich. Helpful, knowledgeable staff. This review is just average, because our lunch didn't quite hit the high points, but this is still a nice spot. To be fair, we chose the "cheap" ($22 for 3 courses) menu, offered during Greenwich Restaurant Week, so we weren't expecting... More

The food was mostly very good. We had tuna and monkfish which were both excellent and an excellent molten chocolate cake. The New England clam chowder however was watery and lacking clams. The sevice was a bit too fast. If you put your fork down someone was there to clear your plate. All in all however the main courses were... More

On a whim, I took a drive to Greenwich. found what appears to be the Rodeo Dr. of Greenwich. On a side street towards the Oyster house awaits. From the window, I see this massive painting of this woman resting up against a brick wall. The place is not large. very cozy intimate setting. If visiting this place solo, I... More

We went to Elm during the Greenwich Restaurant Week to test it out for future dinners. Our Elm Greens appeared to have been sitting around too long (hours) as they were wilted but the dressing was delicious. Our main courses were excellent. We had the mahi mahi and cod. For dessert, we had the carrot cake and red velvet. Both... More

Loved lunch. Little to complain about. Oysters were great. Didn't give it a 5 because although excellent it did not have real creativity. Just good food and beer.

Elm Street Oyster House is a great place to enjoy all types of fish. Everything is very fresh and well prepared. Sides are also enjoyable. There are a few non-fish choices but not many. The place is not large so I would suggest reservations. The waitstaff is knowledgeable about menu choices and service is friendly. You can't go wrong here.

The Elm St Oyster House is small, but the range of food available is impressive and the food we ordered was very tasty and well cooked. The venue is welcoming and all the staff were friendly and helpful. The only real downside here is the price - nothing is average prices - everything is somewhat more than you'd pay in... More

Nice location. Nice dėcor. How to score a restaurant where some entrėes are good and others not? 'Good' would mislead. My wife's cod was excellent and hot. My swordfish was the worst I've ever had, ever. The real problem is that the kitchen let this go to a customer. Who's in charge? The Brussels sprouts were unchewable with the tough... More

This is a good choice for dinner with friends. Casual ambiance, friendly staff, good food. It has been in Greenwich for many years, and we have enjoyed each time that we have eaten there.
