Oysters are fresh and tasty but overpriced at $5 / piece. Wine was very average. Won’t recommend the place.

Neat to the Ace Hotel is good for oyster lovers . The also have a pre fix lunch menu that is very good. Is all about seafood. The haddock fritters with the curry dipping mayonnaise are very good. The divers scallops with salad are ok.

Stopped in late one night to have a few drinks at the bar during our vacation in NYC. Great little bar and atmosphere! Drinks were on the money and the garlic rosemary peanuts were the perfect late night snack!

A reasonable menu for oysters. Shucking right in front of you. Music a bit loud but certainly part of the too loud ace hotel vibe. Not nearly as crowded as Breslin. Sat at the bar. Kinda expensive but not outa line for nyc. Not Fish...More

Tasty menu and great drinks. Love the vibe. The staff were prompt and friendly. Grab a seat at the counter facing a window and take in the street scene.
