Description: The Frisky Oyster offers imaginative cuisine in a sophisticated, metropolitan atmosphere craved by locals and visitors for years. Our menu changes daily to showcase the most exceptional, local ingredients. The local and international wine list is personally selected to compliment the current menu. Starting at 5pm, we offer dinner in our stylish dining room or at the buzzing bar. DJ Frisky turns up the beat as the energy level rises after 9pm.

We went midweek. The staff were excellent and attentive (the restaurant was not crowded). The food was good, but overpriced. The wine list was slightly outrageous but managed to find something by the glass that didn't break the bank. They get high marks for the duck breast, which was cooked perfectly, and sauced beautifully. If I were in town I would go for the experience.

Dined with 8 friends. One is a CIA grad. We are all foodies but it was a bit disappointing. Entree of short ribs was very good. Lobster quesadilla were boring. Each square had one tiny piece of lobster. Frites were good. The chopped salad was overdressed. The calamari (crispy) was very tasty. Maybe it’s better not to go on a Sat. Night.

The food was great and service was excellent. It was pricey but really good. The cocktail menu is fun and different

Went here for the first time in July at 5 pm right when they opened. It was quiet and food was good. On sept 1 we wanted to come back again since we like it the first time. We called to make reservations and the only time they had was at 10:30. We took it because we really wanted to go back. We got there at 10pm because we were hungry and so were the kids. We were turned away due to some bs no kids policy after 6 pm. Um what? 1. Nobody asked us when we made reservations if were with kids. (How do you not mention this policy when taking reservations?) 2. All other restaurants were closed by this time and had we known we could’ve had dinner hours ago. We specifically waited for this restaurant. Stay away if you have kids (which is the majority of people). I can’t even believe this happened to a place I used to have a good opinion about. All we got was a sorry, the owner doesn’t even have his kids in here passed 6pm. Well thanks lady, that helps. The owner told the hostess to turn us away. He didn’t even have the decency to tell us himself.

Called the restaurant to make reservations and the only available time was 10:30 pm. We were done with our day at around 9 and basically waited for an hour and a half to eat there. As soon as we came in we were greeted by the “owner”. As soon as they saw my two well behaved kids we were told that we had to leave because of some BS no kids after 6 policy. Conveniently the “owner” disappeared and didn’t even have the decency to let us know himself, he had the hostess break the news to us. Unreal! If there is such a policy you need to let your customers know ahead of time on the phone. It was so late that most places were already closed and we scrambled to find another place to have dinner in. This snobby behavior is outrageous. We live in NYC and have been to Michelin star restaurants who welcomed my kids any time or day. Who do you think you are? You don’t want my kids or my money – one star. I would give it zero if I had the option.
