My husband and I ate there April 27, 2013.
Let me preface this by saying that I was a waitress. I have a lot of patience for wait staff and I know that, sometimes, bad days happen. That was not the case here.
The waitstaff here was the worst staff I have ever encountered. We were seated promptly and then ignored for 10 minutes. Our waitress, Sharon A, came over and asked if we had a waitress yet. We said no and she said she would be our waitress. Great.
She didn't know the specials, we had to ask for the bread basket, she brought the wrong food over to us. That seems to be the way things are done as we made a game of watching the food runners bring the wrong food to wrong people every single time they came out. Every single time. My husband asked about their oyster menu and our waitress couldn't provide info. We listened to the table next to us ask their waitress about the oysters and she couldn't answer either. Considering this establishment is called the North Fork Oyster Company, the waitstaff should have a base knowledge of oysters.
The food was fine. The cornbread in the bread basket was amazing. We ordered calamari for an appetizer. It was fine, nothing special. My husband ordered 1/2 dozen Peconic Bay oysters. They were oystery. For dinner, my husband got the oyster and shrimp po'boy. He said it was good.
I ordered the swordfish. It was described with roasted carrots, sunchokes, baby potatoes and lemon broth. Do you see the word garlic in my description? Well, they neglected to put it in their menu description as well. I pulled 11 whole garlic gloves out of my dish. The swordfish was very dry. It was a pretty inedible dish.
The last thing I heard as we were walking out was a man at his table complaining loudly that he did not get the dish he ordered and that the quality of the restaurant had become non-existant. I cannot speak to the former quality, but I can assert that I would never spend another dollar on this establishment.
