“Be sure you find your way to this gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

A beautiful oasis in Brooklyn after trekking across the Williamsburg Bridge. The oyster menu was extensive - we tried two different types and they were excellent - served with horseradish, cocktail sauce and mignonette sauce. Poached oyster brunch entree was superb. The breakfast pastries were fresh and tasty. The duck confit was succulent. Can't wait to return.

“Finally got to visit. Worth the Trip.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

This is an excellent place to go for oysters and cocktails. The bar staff is excellent. They took good care of my during my extended visit. Happy hour oyster prices are amazing. The decor is very interesting and makes this place seem extra special.

“Nice Ambiance, Good Food, Expensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

Went to Maison Premiere for the first time, particularly attracted to the rich choice of oysters they offered. The oyster selection was indeed great, they were fresh and very tasty. Small but nice and cozy space with a garden section offered. Service was OK but not spectacular. Last but not least, prices were very high, especially in light of the portion sizes.

“Excellent Brunch & Cocktails In Williamsburg”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013

We came for brunch on a Saturday in July. We arrived just as they opened so it was pretty quiet, but the staff were very welcoming and we ate in their beautiful back garden. Unfortunately we were too hungover to order oysters, but I had steak and eggs with crushed potatoes which was fantastic. The cocktails were pretty special, and they also did a mean iced coffee. I'd love to go back for dinner and get stuck into their impressive oyster menu, I bet the place is really buzzing after dark!

“Nice setting, great oyster selection and serious cocktails”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013 via mobile

Like everything in NY, the restaurant is small. But once you squeeze past the front bar to your table you will be pleasantly surprised. Hopefully you make it for oyster happy hour, decent selection but their main menu has greater oyster choices in addition to other fare. This place is serious about their drinks! All the ones our table of 6 drank were great (yes, there was sampling going on). Only ones we did not like we're those served in julep cups, too much ice and not enough beverage esp for the drink charge. Other than that, it was a winner.
