“The best lobster roll in the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

We always come back here for the lobster roll that is on a buttery bun and the lobster ravioli. The lobster roll does not have any filler- it is all meat. So delicious! Love the cozy atmosphere- we usually just sit at the bar. Highly recommend!!

“On a (lobster) roll!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

The best lobster roll served all year. Service is adequate, no frills, but one's basically there for great fish and drinks.

“Heavenly lobster ravioli!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

As everyone else has suggested, the lobster roll is good. As a matter of fact, the LOBSTER RAVIOLI is to die for! Oyster Sampler is good, too.
Very friendly staff, a bit rare to find in NYC. Highly recommand.

“Amazing lobster roll!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

My wife and I had our last dinner in NYC here and it was the perfect finish. Very friendly staff and "cozy" restaurant.

The star was definitely the lobster roll - lots of meat, warm buttered bun. Absolutely delicious!

“One of SOHO's stars”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013 via mobile

If you love lobsters and oysters, you'll love this place. Everything is served fresh and I love sitting at te bar in this cosy place. Just me and my favourite lobster roll.

Every time I'm in SOHO, I know I just won't be able to resist dropping in here for that lobster roll. I wish I could have one right now... No. Make that two.
