Good mix of food and vibe

Many of the foodie joints in eastern LI are white-linened, 3 hour formal productions. This place is more geared toward the fun crowd. Don't get me wrong, food is good but it's the atmosphere that make this always rank high. I would recommend the proscuitto wrapped egg and the Oysyer... read more

I love Frisky Oyster for a small group of friends or for a date. My parents did not like the trendiness or noise level, which is understandable, but I love that it offers a chic spot to have a drink and an interesting meal. The menu is fun and unique and I love all their drinks. It is a bit... More

The food was very good. But, that's where the fun ended. They are trying to fit too many people into a small space. People/waiters were bumping into my chair all evening. Next to us the manager was screwing and unscrewing tables to make room for a party of 2 vs a party of 4. Annoying. And, it was SO hot.... More

Great food in a nice place. The duck breast was absolutely delicious. Definitely recommend it when on a date in Greenport.

I've been here with my husband and enjoyed truly delicious food. Service was great, but we also visited on the off season. Have also been there myself during off season and it was just fine. There is definitely a bar scene, which is not really my thing but it may be yours. Can be a little loud during peak season... More

I have been going to the Frisky Oyster for years now, and most times it does not disappoint Drinks are crafted carefully and are very good. Food is very good and even the desserts merit a try. Stand out dishes, you can never go wrong with the scallops, excellent. Truffle fries, a must have, duck slider very good, stuffed zucchini... More

I know most people would pick North Fork table but you cannot compare the atmosphere of these two rests. Frisky is beautiful inside the service is professional and gets everything right and the food is just what you expect when you are a regular. Delicious food well prepared and in a cozy room. Love it

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.
