What an establishment. We went midweek for the Oyster happy hour (people start queuing outside the door before it opens for 1$ Oysters) and ate some of the best and most varied Oysters I've had in the U.S. We then went for dinner on the week-end and it was quite simply sublime, arguably the best meal we had in NYC during an 8 day gastronomic tour of the city. Oysters for all were followed by razor and blood clams, sea urchin and scallops all served on ice. This was followed by a selection of raw seafood followed by the mains (the real heavyweights), the lobster, cod and duck, all cooked to perfection. Great vibe, great drinks, a total jackpot in every way.

Felt like i was in the 60's - very helpful staff and my absolute choice was the razor clams. Cocktails are also great.
Be prepared for some wait as the place is busy but the atmosphere is awesome.

How can you beat a decent selection of freshly shucked oysters? In my book, you can't. This is a very busy, vibrant place. Great Drinks, great oysters. Had to wait an hour for a seat at the bar to have oysters. Turned out to be a little less. Definitely worth it, it was happy hour of course. I think the staff made the wait tolerable. They are polite and above all efficient, they don't forget you are waiting. We had a great time and would gladly return, wait or not.

I usually come here for their happy hour special. The mixed drinks are good (but a bit pricy) The $1 oysters are fresh and great variety.

This was my second visit to Maison Premier. This time we had dinner sitting in the bar. The atmorsphore, service and food is great, but what really attracts me is the wide selection of US absinthe. The bartenders know what they talk about, so expect good advice.
