Blue Plate Oysterette

Seafood
Blue Plate Oysterette was inspired by East Hampton summer lobster bakes and mouthwatering lunches at Montauk’s favorite roadside eateries. With influences like Pearl Oyster Bar and Mary’s Fish Camp in New York, Oysterette serves lunch and dinner seven days a week with a menu straight out of the seafood shacks you find on the East Coast. Chunky, overflowing lobster rolls, buckets of steamed clams in broth so flavorful that bread demands to be dunked, clam chowder, mussels in broth, ceviche, and raw shellfish so fresh you can smell the ocean. Filling the void in the Westside restaurant scene for a casual, beachy, seafood restaurant and buzzing neighborhood vibe appealing to both surfers and studio heads.

    So it has been a trend in oyster restaurants not to provide prepared horseradish (which is hot) in favor of "fresh horseradish" which is not because it hasnt been cured and really taste likes lettuce. Some places, like this one, don't even carry prepared horseradish as a condiment. That is unfortunate for those of us who like to spice up our oysters with this condiment...and there are many of us!

    Usually great but they were out of drinks I ordered and then went to food and they were also out of the food I ordered. Ended up canceling my second option and going elsewhere. Usually like this spot though.

    Have been coming here for years but each time is a bit more of a disappointment! The outstanding food and service that was once there isn’t any longer. There doesn’t seem to be much care or attentiveness from the servers and no real pride in the food. A beautiful view but the experience is not worth the price.

    For a quieter dining experience, sit inside. Between the street and pedestrian traffic near their outdoor seating it's very noisy. Best dish, if you like mussels, is that with Red Curry.

    We are very frequent diners, Unfortunately, the food quality on all levels has suffered from the change of chef Crab claws were horrible at $20 a claw Caesar salad which used to be wonderful had very tired lettuce and lackluster Oysters were mediocre compared to what was the norm This used to be our “go to”, but the nose dive in quality is too much The location deserves much more than what they are giving now

    As always. The food, literally everything, is above average. My lobster roll was a bit dry and had less lobster than usual but the flavor is spot on. My oysters, during oyster hour, were some of the best I've had. Juicy, creamy and the vinaigrette they serve with them, Omggggg, none better anywhere else. I'm from the east coast and it reminds me of sitting on the dock in cape cod eating lobster and oysters right out of the ocean. Just fresh and delicious. When I want to be certain I get that experience I go to Blue Plate. Period.

    When I made the reservation for an outside table, I asked for a view of the ocean for a special celebration (my daughter's graduation). When we arrived, it was crowded so I thought we probably wouldn't get one of the better tables, but the kind hostess, Avery, said I have a table saved for you and led us to the perfect table, with the most beautiful view of the sunset over the ocean! Our waiter, Josh, was also very attentive and made helpful suggestions. The strawberry margarita was excellent. We enjoyed everything we ordered, including the lobster roll, lobster mac and cheese, and the famous key lime pie. We will always remember this special celebration.

    Delicious! My sister was in town for work and I took her here for dinner. We ordered a cluster of snow crab legs, half dozen oysters, blistered green beans and lobster Mac n' cheese. Snow crab was good, not fishy but my sister thought it too salty but I didn't mind. Oysters fresh and yum with a variety of sauces. Green beans were bomb. But the star was the lobster Mac! Big chunks of lobster and good Mac n' cheese
