We almost walked out before we ordered as it was about 25mins from being seated to our waitress then coming over to take our orders. Despite there before plenty other staff around not doing much, seemingly ONLY our waitress could wait on us.

We ordered the royal platter and was very disappointed. The king crab was dry and tasteless and the prawns were dry and rubbery. Either the chef doesn’t know how to cook them or they were several days old...what a waste of good seafood. The ceviche was not ceviche. It was more like old cooked seafood drowned in white wine vinegar and did not appetising at all. The lobster, oysters and clams on the other hand were fantastic.

For our last night in NYC, this was a disappointing experience. They spent 2yrs redecorating the place and it feels like 2 mins on the menu and their operations.

We did appreciate that the managers took the time to listen to our concerns and offered us some extra oysters and a reduction in our bill. We truly hope things improve as it really would have been an amazing experience if everything had been faultless.

We came for dinner on Labor Day, place was dead empty but I'm chalking that up to the holiday as it's definitely worth a visit. Outstanding decor and 'vibe', interesting cocktails (sake/wine, no liquor license but still very clever drinks), good food. On the flip side, service was pretty lacking and unattentive, and while the dinner was pretty good, it wasn't as 'original' as one would assume given the originality of the space, cocktails, etc. Worth a visit, but temper expectations just a bit...

Alejandro was our server and he was wonderful and attentive and made me feel special on my birthday! The food was outstanding, so delicious and well seasoned and tasty. I ordered the oven roasted chicken cooked with rosemary and thyme and it was divine. My sister ordered the seared halibut cooked with capers and olives and that was extraordinary. My boyfriend ord er red the salmon and that cooked to perfection and melted in our mouths. This restaurant is amazing! 5 stars. We sat in the mermaid room and the seating was so comfortable and the ambiance really took us away. Loved this experience! Can't wait to visit again

Lamia's has amazing food not to mention the beautiful aesthetics. As I waited for my party to join me all I kept hearing from passer by's is how nice the place looked. The decor is breathtaking but that's not only thing Lamia's has going for them. The Black Duck Salt Oysters were the best I ever had. Our waiter was pleasant, attentive and really helpful with suggestions on what to try. The crab cakes could use some work but the Peppercorn Rib Eye was excellent. I really enjoyed the drinks Beachfront Views and Basic AF. Really looking forward to going back during the day to enjoy the food and view of the seafood bar.

We were there opening weekend, so I think that is why the service was so scattered.

Drinks were great, but overpriced. The seafood tower (platter) is great value for $75, but I don't expect that price to stick around for long.

Overall, this is a gorgeous restaurant and the food was fresh and delicious, but it is a lot of hype. Best for special occasions.

Food too salty. Took almost an hour to receive appetizers and I arrived early for dinner. Entrees not served at the same time almost 15mins apart. Waitress not attentive - no apologies for service issues. Bass entree was bitter, filet cut too close to stomach entrail area. Given how tiny the filet was, about 1/3 of it was impacted.

Loved this place. The decor, the management, the food and the ambiance is so unique and special. Although we came as a couple, I can’t wait to go along with a group of friends. Eddie (the oyster guy) is the man. I hope to sit at the oyster bar everytime we come as a couple. I’m headed back there tomorrow night and it can’t come too soon. We had the oysters and garlic chilli shrimp to start- so fresh and tasty. Then we shared the salt crusted snapper which was not only good but also an experience cracking it open. We washed all of that down with a few oyster shooters and a cocktail. Perfect night. I’ve been told to try the octopus and I’m not one to say no to some good octopus. Hope it’s as good as everything else we had from there.
