We had a lovely, competent server who told us about the dinner specials. I asked some technical questions regarding the food and she promptly asked the chef to get me the answers.

This cute little joint, with its charming wood interior (feeling romantic? see if you can get a seat in the little snug across from the bar), cozy vibe, and delightful outdoor patio, used to house Nell Thorn, which has since moved down to the waterfront....More

The service is excellent without being "stuffy" and our food selections were amazing, cassoulet and the paella. We also started with oysters and ended with creme brule. The ambiance is really nice and we can't wait to visit again.

yes yes and yes
I simply want to agree with you Oyster & Thistle is 5 star fine dining. As a solo diner, usually rebuffed, they gave me excellent service. Their cuisine, amazing. I had the escargot, onion soup, caesar salad and cassoulet with Bananas Foster (check it out on you tube Bananas Foster Dwayne) with 2 house special drinks and an espresso and B&B. I felt for the quality of service, the excellence of the food the dollar amount was excellent.
