The intimate space contains a small dining room, a horse-shoe shaped cocktail bar, and special counter seating at the oyster bar. The full dinner menu is available at all areas of the space. In the summer, from June to September, the lush garden provides additional seating amidst an enchanted scenery.
Our company enjoyed everything!
Service wasn't the greatest but everyone was friendly.
What a great place works at every level great drinks, wonderful food and kind helpful and professional people. Always on my list of where to go in Brooklyn.
From Durham NC. Was recommended from Bar Virgile owner.
Amazing seafood, great experience. I miss this place already
Great oysters AND happy hour. Didn't realize it when we booked but we caught the tail end of it. Great place for a small group or romantic dinner. Cocktails were outstanding.
Our favorite dinning experience in the world ! each we go to NY we pencil an evening at Maison Premiere. The Absinthe colada is unique and the oysters are amazing.
And what the lobster roll... the best among the best :)
We had a lovely brunch at Maison Premiere. The food, the ambiance, the service, the drinks: all are top notch. Our party of four had one vegan eater, one vegetarian, one non-drinker and one meat lover and all of us found something on the menu that not only fit our dietary needs, but tasted delicious (& was plated beautifully, too). With all the good press it has received, I was afraid the restaurant would be one of those that tries a little too hard, but Maison Premiere doesn’t feel anything like that. There is a wonderful, easy vibe there. Highly recommend!
We were seated promptly for Sunday Brunch @ 3PM. We had some wonderful cocktails from an excellent bartender. I ordered a nice variety of seafood ( excellent oyster choices) for a starters. For the entree the Mrs had the dirty rice with eggs and I went with the wagging tartar. We finished with Canelé & Madeleines and Absinthe Panna Cotta (wow on both). Service was excellent and we were never rushed through this wonderful meal
Excellent service. A great place to go after work.
The ambiance was wonderful, the wait staff was wonderful and attentive. The oysters and clams were delicious. The other food was just ok, and a bit overpriced. I would recommend only coming here for cocktails and of course oysters.
Highly recommend this place! Great atmosphere! Wonderful food!
Good restaurant and great service. Food was very good.
In town to see my daughter, great meal! Oysters, scallops, beef tartare, lobster roll all excellent. I also enjoyed the Oyster Stout
Great experience. The oysters were phenomenal. The wait staff was incredibly professional and knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend to friends and family.
Always a pleasure to eat here. Staff is very attentive - they could check in just slightly less to avoid being intrusive. Food was stellar and ambiance was great whether you were on a date or just catching up with friends. Definitely on the go-to list when friends come to town!
Great place, but service can be a bit off sometimes.
We enjoyed our experience at Maison Premiere and our teenage daughter loved her lobster! Will definitely return and recommend.
Best oyster selection in NYC! Thanks for the amazing food and hospitality :)
Food was amazing. Very large oyster selection. Attentive staff.
Very nice food and atmosphere ! Oyster specialist but also nice brunch options
Maison Premier was my favorite dining experience on a two week holiday in New York. The cocktails were outstanding, a huge variety of oysters to choose from and they were all very fresh and well shucked. The ambience was perfect for a romantic evening. Staff was very friendly and very attentive.
Loved, loved, loved this bar. Super stylish cocktails from gorgeous bartenders
I am a local restaurant/hotel entrepreneur. I live in the neighborhood and your establishment is one that I have gone to for years and will continue to. Maison Premiere is where I go to when I’m alone to relax after a long intense week or show off to friends that are connoisseurs of food and drinks that have never been.
I understand how music adds to the ambiance of a restaurant but not to the hospitality. I choose my visits carefully according to the level of volume. As I mentioned, your restaurant stands out above the rest and I will continue to dine at 298 Bedford Ave but I wish my conversations were ones of less strain.
Loved everything about Maison Premiere and highly recommend it. The bar is fabulous - loved the vibe and watching the bartenders mix cocktails was mesmerizing. Had the King Cole Martini and wow! Will be back to have another. Food was spectacular and do not miss the oyster bar. Absolutely delicious East Coast oysters that I shared with my dining companion. The black bass was excellent and the coffee was the best coffee I have ever had!!! I was so blown away by it and have to find the beans to make at home. All in all, just a wonderful experience. Please hurry and go. Absinthe fountain was very cool to check out as well.
We had a late lunch/brunch it was wonderful everything from the service to the food to the ambience
Wonderful ambience, delightful surroundings and wonderful food.
We have been doing a special holiday celebration here every year. This time, the service was beyond slow & just generally abysmally. It took 29 mins for a server to acknowledge us and then 20 minutes to even get a drink. The food was delicious however it look forever for it to get to us. Then the restaurant GM had the nerve to trellis us he had people waiting on our table when the delay was on their end. Nuts! And the music was so loud, we could barely have a conversation. We will find another restaurant for oysters Ext year... it’s too bad because the food is yummy as are the cocktails
Waited longer than usual for service
Birthday dinner for my husband was delicious! Cozy, festive and interesting... everything you could want.
food just isn't that great. fish was grainy, not pretty oily succulent fish. oysters were mostly good, some where a bit overly stinky. waitress was rude. not her fault though, she was french. eveyrone loved the lobster pasta tho.
Such a cosy nice place. We really enjoyed our stay and the delicious food with phanomenal music surrounded by wonderful people. Thank you.
Maison Premiere is such a delight. We can’t wait to go back again.
Order the Old King Cole martini for a fun table-side experience. Ryan did a wonderful job! And all the staff were professional and friendly.
A very happy place, upbeat, romantic; she will appreciate the whole experience exp with the selection of oysters, and absinthe, for boomers and millennials .
Our second Thanksgiving dinner at Maison Premiere - loved it just as much as last year. Great atmosphere, delicious cocktails and super fresh oysters. We will keep coming back!
My new favorite restaurant, amazing cocktails, delicious food (and outstanding oyster selection), and service is wonderful (thank you Ryan)!
Maison has been our go to spot for every special occasion and last night was no different. We had 7:00 reservations and were seated promptly. Hostesses and waitresses were super friendly and diligent. I was a packed house last night and service did not suffer. Sat at the counter in front of the shuckers. My wife said it was perfect for my ADD considering how much was going on and the shuckers we friendly and professional. The FOOD Oysters were top notch (watched the shuckers sniff each oyster after they were shucked, sounds gross but I appreciated the care they took to make sure the oysters were up to par!) Small plates were amazing had the olives, scallop, and uni. We shared the lobster linguine. Lobster was fresh and the linguine was a perfectly al dente. Five star experience last night and every time before that. We’ll definitely be back! Oops forgot about the cocktails. They were extremely well crafted and delicious as well.
Amazing oysters! Try and get there for happy hour. Great drinks, service, and vibe. Place is small so make sure you have a reservation!
Amazing restaurang in New York, great place to eat crab fish
