“FANTASTIC HAPPY HOUR”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Sat at bar for happy hour-on a Friday and really enjoyed our experience.

We were skeptical at first, because the location is a little strange, and it's a small French place away from the business of Williamsburg.

We entered and were immediately approached from some pleasant employees.

Took well-advantage of happy hour- $1 OYSTERS- AND THE BEST PART IS- YOU'RE NOT LIMITED TO CHOOSE FROM A FEW- ANY-ONE THEY HAVE THAT DAY IS PART OF THE HAPPY HOUR. Sat at bar- enjoyed a few beers, and ate about 30-40 oysters each. Bill was expensive but thats because we really took advantage of this happy hour. Oysters were fresh and delicious!

If I ever have another friday off- will definitely go back. Cozy little place.

“Great drinks, slow service, tasty food, high prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Title says it all really. In spite of the bad I really enjoy this place. In the warmer weather they also have a surprisingly pleasant enclosed back patio area.

“Oysters , Seafood & Drinks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

Happy hour is a great deal if you like oysters! At a buck an oyster the four of us (only 3 ate the oysters) finished off 47 of 'em! The other food selections were also interesting and they have a wonderful drink menu. Happy hour from 4:00-7:00. Our waiter was knowledgable, helpful and friendly and the whole waitstaff was impeccable and efficient. First class place with a lot of atmosphere. Hope to go back again.

The outdoor seating looks good but only open in warmer weather.

“A must for Williamsburg”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Maison Premiere is routinely a favorite for us and our friends. The best drinks, a unique atmosphere, and a place to experience absinthe for the first time if you never have. Although I am hardly a fan of absinthe (not for the feint of heart), virtually every other drink on the menu is delicious and expertly made. If you are in town to experience the best williamsburg has to offer. this is a must.
