The Food: This is by far the best sea food that i have ever tasted. We had the scallops, the crab cake, muscles, and oysters of course. We are not big oysters eaters and did not know much about them so at that place we tried them all. we got a sampler platter with 2 of each from different locations. They had them from the east coast, from west coast from MA, WA, LI, NY... you name it. The scallops were huge and exceptionally prepared.
In my mind this place should be covered on food channel, Im not sure why it was not.
the atmosphere: this in very casual place, and could get packed by the evening. we had to make reservations. We have been there twice in 3 days we loved it so much!

We thoroughly enjoyed the food here. The oysters are quite excellent in taste, but they were small and some were almost paper thin. Our waiter was very nice and the food was great, but the plates took a very long time to come out. Other than that, we enjoyed ourselves. Keep note that not all the plates are large enough to fill you, you might have to order more than one (tapas style).

For a group of 15 people, the River Oyster Bar was perfect. The service is very good. The seafood was tasty and the beer cold.

We spent about $500 for two couples last night. The food was extremely fresh and very good. Our server, Sara, was very helpful on what I would imagine to be a busy night. Unfortunately the hostess was very rude at check in and that interaction really tainted the entire experience. It’s inconceivable that a restaurant would place a pretentious, shell of a person as the first face a patron would interact with. We’ll try somewhere else next time, maybe you should too.
