This is the second time we have visited the Mermaid Inn. The first in Dec 2012 East Village, second July 2013 Upper West. On both occasions we were blown away with the quality and selection of the fresh produce. Service was prompt and friendly. The restuarant is very lively, great for couples or a small group heading out. We have two young childen with us on a second visit. They too enjoyed their experience Th childrens meals were also excellent quality and suitable quanity for to hungry boys. Difficult to fault this restauant, great valie for money. Defiantly on our hit list for our next visit to NY. Book to advoid disappointment.

Great birthday meal at Mermaid Inn. The fish taco and shishiko pepper appetizers were incredible. We moved on to the Iceberg wedge and Mini Clam Bake which were equally awesome. Our entrees were all magnificent. Prices, especially for NYC were very reasonable. If you like seafood, which we do, this place is a real treasure.

It was our families first night in NYC so we were all looking forward to a good meal in the Upper West Side. We couldn't ask for a better fit for everyone. Great kids menu, fun vibe, good happy hour and impeccable service. We had reservations so we were right on time and they sat us immediately. For families looking for a good spot for everyone where you don't have to sacrifice atmosphere and quality food, The Mermaid is the perfect spot.

This restaurant was suggested by my daughter's friend who is studying at NYU. It was probably one of the best sea food meals we have eaten and we went back for a second meal. Everything we ordered, from the charred calamari salad, the Portuguese octopus salad, skate wings in burnt butter sauce, trout were par excellence, as was the complimentary chocolate mousse at the end of the meal. Would recommend this restaurant to all those who are looking for a great sea food experience in New York city.

What a lively, charming restaurant! Lovely garden out back for a romantic summer evening. Loved the fresh fish and the mini clam bake. Sweet little complimentary pudding for dessert. Great service too. Highly recommend it.
