I went here with a date for a drink on a hot Sunday afternoon in September. My date was quite knowledgeable on the subject of oysters and we tried quite an array at the bar. The oysters were incredibly delicious. The bar tender was dull as dishwater. We were the only people there. I asked for iced tea and the... More

Visited this restaurant on Sunday evening. While we had made reservations it was not crowded. The service was friendly and somewhat attentive. The restaurant is small, cozy and quiet. Two of us had the Shrimp Scallop Ravioli from the regular menu and another diner had the Paella. Both were very good. One diner ordered from the special restaurant week menu... More

I stopped in here on my way back to NYC. I ordered asparagus with fried egg thinking it would be something basic but it was amazing! Service was excellent and the food came out quick. I'd eat here again!

Nice selection of seafood that is well prepared. We go there early because it is very popular and gets quite noisy. A fun atmosphere.

My wife, daughter, and I went there for dinner on a Sunday evening. The people were very friendly, but the service a bit lacking. I had ordered a cocktail which never arrived; I suppose they will only serve beer or wine? The food was good, but not exceptional for either the stuffed flounder I had or the salmon my wife... More

We had lunch here on a workday. It is a small establishment, nicely decorated, very nice bar, and good food. The wait staff was friendly and helpful. Be prepared to spend some money to eat here though, it is a bit pricey.

Good Oysters provided by Elm Street Oyster House. Good Wine provided by Elm Street. Most important are friends meeting for dinner at Elm Street Oyster House. The friends meet while diving and we come from three different states. We had a great meal and spend the evening catching up on each others news between our food courses. Dinner was excellent....

Great selection of fresh fish prepared any way you wish. Comfortable for families or a group of friends or a date. Very relaxed vibe but still classy. Unique for Greenwich, a great restaurant with no attitude. The raw bar is exactly what it should be, a great selection and ocean fresh. The Seafood Chili is a meal on its own... More

My family and I went to eat here. Cute place, good service. Food was good but I gave it four out of five because I was hoping for a larger selection of oysters. It's worth going and enjoying at least once to see for yourself.

I was visiting a friend in Greenwich and craved the type of fresh seafood that is scarce in Tucson, AZ. We had taken a taxi shopping, and asked the driver to suggest a restaurant nearby. Without hesitation he said The Oyster House on Elm St. We took his advice and so glad we did. The deep fried, whole belly clams... More
