    A Manhattan institution, this place is the perfect spot to impress a date with your New York-ing skills. After you eat, grab a couple tall boys in brown bags and sit on the steps and people watch.

    Tell all your Boston transplant friends to give up their white paste-soup and head to Grand Central Oyster Bar, set of many a contemporary literary scene for a retro gone trendy-chic vibe. Read more

    History lesson: This tomatoey version is nothing like the creamy New England-style chowder, but it’s been served in Grand Central Station for nearly 100 years. Read more

    best oysters ever! they change the menu everyday and very small words to read so the easiest way is let the staff recommend something good!

    Seafood, cocktails

    Bloody Mary shooters are absolutely the must. Bouillabaisse has a satisfying amount of saffron in it, oysters are great and surprisingly tasty with a drop of horseradish.

    Love the vibe and food. Cocktails were too strong but not necessarily a bad thing for some. Please know this place is not for service, it's face paced.

    A haven for mollusk worshippers and harried New York commuters for more than a century, the seafood spot is still as epic as its iconic white-subway-tiled arches. Read more

    Oysters were not shucked fresh. Main dish was unflavored.

    You're here for the huge oyster selection & the historic design, but all the fish is pretty good. It's not cheap (many filets $30+) but it's extremely casual which may appeal to some more than others

    The broiled blue fish is the best you'll ever have. Sit at the counter facing the oyster shuckers and order anything they advise. Love love love this timeless place.

    What was once a classic is now a bit worn down. Go during the holidays for a bit of nostalgia and stick with the basics.

    The oysters were bland and hard to tell apart. Drowned in condiments to the point that I questioned what was the point of having oysters if you can't taste them. Definitely skip this tourist trap.

    Don't come here. Hot, slow and food is not great. Too expensive for what you get.

    Fantastic selection of oysters, served simply in a great atmosphere. Skip the overpriced mains and stick to the oyster bar.

    Incredible variety of oysters at a fair price. If you don't know which ones to choose, just ask a dozen at the waiter's choise. Nice place at early night with a glass of white wine.
