Great food, mediocre ambience

My boyfriend and I dined at The Frisky Oyster last Fall. While we loved the food (you must order the Oysters Friskafella - delicious!), we felt the restaurant rushed us a bit. We were in and out in an hour. Additionally, we found it to be a bit too dark and loud. However, I still give this... read more

Very nice atmosphere and amazing food! Flavor and quality were delicious. Giving 4 out of 5 stars because I did not care for the service. Felt like the server had an attitude and didn't want to wait on us. Overall would recommend. Cocktails were great too!

After arriving and waiting at the bar, reservation is needed, it took a while for service. Drinks were good but pricey. We had friskafella oysters which were amazing. Dinner was very good, and dessert was excellent. Would definitely go back. Not for kids!!!

I had dinner at the frisky oyster and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The interior had a hip vibe reminiscent to dining in the city. I had.

Of the many restaurants we've been to on the North Fork and Shelter Island, the Frisky Oyster truly stands at the top. Lots of great flavors brought together in a smart way, set in a cozy atmosphere.

Excellent food, attentive service. But beware! This is a popular place during the season. Trendy food (well prepared), and specialty drinks that change each week. If you want to have drinks here, stop in. If you want to have dinner, make a reservation. This is a very good restaurant, easily mistaken for. City hot spot. Plan accordingly and enjoy. I... More

We had the opportunity to try this restaurant last weekend. While prices are high, the food was wonderful. My soft shell crab appetizer was wonderful and I really enjoyed the seared tuna entree. My husband enjoyed the oysters friskafella and the lobster pasta. The service was attentive. I can't wait to go back.

We were taken promptly for our 8:30 reservation. For a reasonable corkage, we were allowed to bring our own special wines. However, they have talented mixologists and some really enticing looking cocktails. For starters, we enjoyed the oysters friskafella, calamari and shishitos, lobster quesadilla and most of all, the heirloom tomato fondue. It had a rich, fresh tomato flavor. Entree... More
