“Good food, a bit overpriced”
Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

Been here twice both times the food was good. I'd say it's a little overpriced. Good for a special occasion not somewhere I'd go regularly.

“Hip Vibe, Top Notch Food”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

A hip, festively loud crowd complimented excellent food and good service to make our trip memorable and worth a repeat visit. The Oysters Friskafella earned raves reviews at the table and the side of sweetbreads, although a change of pace, did not disappoint. I personally had the short rib entrée and found it to be first rate when paired with the polenta. Have a few drinks and the circa 1970’s wallpaper will hardly be noticed.

“Out of place”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

The food is very good here no doubt, but the vibe is pretentious and better suited to the Hamptons. Service was rushed (3 courses in one hour, and there are no theaters in Greenport.) The feeling after the experience is buyer's regret, "I spent this much for that? In an hour?" With "First and South" and "Biere" around the corner, Frisky is not worth the hype.

“Never a bad meal!”
Reviewed June 6, 2014

The chef here prides themselves on fresh ingredients and course preparation. The truffle fries are sinful and the Filet of beef was top notch
