When I went it was unlimited budget on our client. We toured the world with the best oysters around. This is one the best oyster houses I have ever been to, simply based on variety.

The service was not great. They overlooked which did not make me happy. They were very busy chatting with the table next to us.

The blackened fish tacos were great! You couldn't pick them up but tasty with a fork. The blackening was done perfectly. 3 kinds of fish made for a nice blend. Abdul was a great knowledgeable server. We took an additional order of clam chowder hme for dinner!

My wife and I went here on a Monday night for dinner on our anniversary. We reserved a table online and got seated as soon as we arrived. The restaurant is in an older building and the dining area just felt dated. It was a little musty and humid. We saw several flies in the dining area and while we... More

I love love love this restaurant. Just off the Avenue, you walk through the front door into a very cozy bar. The restaurant is off to the right and is bright and cheerful. All the food here is excellent....even the burgers for the non seafood believers. You really can't go wrong....BUT...take my advice and do yourself a favor. If you... More

I got the crab cake appetizer. It came with 3 medium sized crab cakes and the tartar sauce was to die for! I also got the side of avacado quinoa and that was good as well. Hard to find parking but well worth it!

Stopped here for dinner during out brief visit to Greenwich. Both my husband and I enjoyed our meals immensely. Everything was delicious, especially the Connecticut style lobster roll!

The food here is really quite good. One member of our party enjoyed an asparagus appetizer and then a cheeseburger. I started with blue point oysters (not sure they were really fresh??) and then paeja (excellent). But the service is miserable. No fault to the individuals; but they are not assigned to a particular table and so confusion reins. One... More

My son is in CT for an internship and we wanted to take him to a nice seafood restaurant before we left for home. I like oysters so we looked for an oyster bar. We saw the reviews and decided to give this place a try. First, Greenwich is a beautiful place and the Elm Street Oyster House is very... More

We used to visit Elm Street on a regular basis a long time ago, but stopped when their fish preparations became overly complex. I like fish as fish, not with 15 other ingredients. With a dearth of decent seafood restaurants in Greenwich, we decided to try it again. I'm happy to say that they've gone back to their roots. You... More
