We called for a last minute reservation on a rainy Saturday nite in January & were easily accomodated. Drinks arrived promptly, and so did the incorrect salad. Our server was nowhere to be found, so we ate the beet salad....quite tasty, actually. Then it took 45 minutes for our entrees to arrive, with no explanation or apology. Strange since the... More

Even with a completely sold out environment, the staff smiled and delivered amazingly well. The food was terrific, the stars being the oysters friscatella and the lobster pasta w Meyer lemon. The restaurant was decorated and really festive. I (we) will be back often. Very very impressed.

This is a great, lively restaurant. The food is outstanding, and the bar scene is fun. Oysters Friskafella are one of the signature appetizers. Expert bartenders, yummy specialty cocktails, nice wine choices, all other cocktails made generous and well. The service is good and professional. The atmosphere is convivial.

Excessively complicated concoctions at ridiculous prices. The dining room feels like NYC rather than the North Fork. Food and setting are ill-conceived and poorly executed. You might reasonably expect a fun experience at a place named the frisky oyster, but you would be very wrong.

We had 8:00 reservations and had to wait for a table anyway. The restaurant is dark and loud. The food was just okay and very expensive. The entrees are small so you still leave hungry.

I agree with another reviewer. We've been coming here on our yearly visits to the North Fork. It's a bit pricey, but we've always had a great meal. We had friends with us this time. I ordered the oysters for an appetizer, which are always great and the chicken. Free Range Chicken Breast with Woodside Orchards’ cider, sweet potatoes, chorizo,... More

We ate here on a Wednesday evening off season and there were only a couple of other tables occupied but we never felt like we were being hurried out so they could close. Food was incredibly good and the service was excellent and very knowledgable. As previous reviews have noted this is not a cheap restaurant but I thought it... More
