Such amazing oysters! Lady Chatterlys were amazing, great brine, wonderfully clean and very well shucked. Also greatly enjoyed the truffle crusted cod. Good staff, super convenient location, all around great evening.

We (family of four) had a great meal here before a show at Madison Square Garden. Our server helped us make great drink and food selections. We all had something we had never had before and were glad we did. Great experience.

We took the subway from the upper west side, but there seemed to be parking on the street at metered parking available - especially on the weekends. And specifically west towards the river and a few blocks north.

No parking. You would need to park on the street or park the car in a garage near by. Very difficult to find parking. Advice, take mass transit. E train is the best way to get there.
