Like? Yes very much. But then again we love tinned fish. If you do then this IS! the place to go. Just a lovely atmosphere near the water. But not only tinned fish....seafood tower that was just wonderful. I'm really looking forward to a return visit. Oh, damn good cocktails too. Wines by the glass? The red was excellent. Worth a trip here, and then perhaps another.
Dive in exquisitely with their high class food. I dashed for their door on a solo date and had a lovely time. El Pingüino is legit a true gem! And dude… the '60s Spanish pop playlist was mood!
The best oysters, mussels, shrimps, crab salad, piquillos in Greenpoint and in NY so far (personally). The service was fantastic and fast and prices were reasonable considering the quality. I would recommend coming here during happy hour and enjoy some oysters and the 12 usd martini. I absolutely loved this place, the drinks and vibes are perfect. The place is not too loud. I would recommend this place for all sort of occasions. It’s simply perfect.
The food is good, the staff is alright, you feel a bit pressured as the waitress was always coming to our table to ask if we wanted more things every 5 minutes! I tried it once but not sure I will go again.
Fantastic bar & oyster spot. While I didn’t have a ton of their offerings, (just 2 or3) it was the perfect start to a night out with a martini and oyster happy hour. Had the bread & sardines as well which we liked to help soak up some of the alcohol. But had a nice experience & looking forward to coming back!
Wonderfully crafted cocktails, beautiful oysters and a compelling list of wine and vermouth.
tasty bites. solid drinks. exceptional staff. we loved it
