The fish here used to be good. Had branzino on several occasions in the past and they got it right. Tonight I had salmon (served as medallions???) and it was completely tasteless. It was served on a bed of caramelized onions, a terrible combination. If you can't even do a simple fish like salmon well, then there is something seriously wrong. The chef ought to be fired and sent back to the burger joint! And the drinks are completely watered down and overpriced. Caveat emptor.

Ate at the Neptune room with my family for a birthday party. This place is one of the best in the neighborhood, and is worth the trip if you don't live in the neighborhood. The seafood dishes were sooo tasty and we also loved the desserts. Our waiter was professional and we felt taken care of. It was my third time eating here and certainly not the last!

Pros: fresh fish, shellfish platters

Cons: need reservations, loud

.

The seafood was cooked to perfection and the plating was something seen on Iron Chef, the seasoning of everything overall could have been kicked up, but it was good considering we were the last to be seated for the night. But what made everything worth the trip was the DESSERT! usually when you go to a reasturant dessert is just something they add on to make another $10-$15. its easy, not really thought about, and at the end of the meal you feel you could have gone without it, but not here. I had the Caramalized banana parfait with epresso and vanilla bean gelato, with candied hazelnuts...OMG it was the best dessert i ever had in my life! My boyfriend had the sticky toffee pudding which i wasnt expecting to be so good, i finished both desserts all by myself (he wasnt to happy about that lol) bottom line is...its good. A great place to take a date...and the bathroom is worth mentioning too, it cant really be described its just something you HAVE to see in person.

Pros: DESSERT DESSERT DESSERT o and the Seafood

Cons: a little pricey, This ones for Wifey, not the girl on the side lol

The neighborhood is happy since the The Neptune Room docked on the Upper West Side! I adore this restaurant, as does everyone I've taken there. It's gorgeous, the food and drinks are creative and outstanding, and the service is consistently terrific. I have several favorite entrees there-- including the organic chicken-- and the fish dishes are reliably exquisite. The lavish bait bar is always a big success, and the side dishes are amazing (the farro salad, the cauliflower, the crispy zucchini, the crispy artichokes, and the gnocchi). The desserts are all out of this world, and the French Toast at brunch is pure magic! My fellow diners and I find that the food at Neptune is better than at some restaurants we've been to lately that are conventionally considered among the best in the city. (The owners' other restaurant, Jane, is also spectacular, including for private parties).

Neptune Room's decor is dramatic, yet understated, romantic and playful. At dinner, candlelight shines from niches in the brick walls and shimmers over the warm terra cotta floor with spots of blue and teal tiles that evoke images of the sea. The ceiling is made of a beautiful wood, shaped with the curved beauty of a ship's hull. The restaurant is a sensuous haven in a hectic city, and when I feast my eyes and my palate there, I feel as though I've just stepped into a vacation.

The Neptune Room is a great neighborhood place for a casual, comfortable meal. I feel equally confident taking out-of-town "dignitary" guests, knowing I can feel proud to introduce them to New York cuisine!

Pros: Quality and originality of food, soothing atmoshphere, great service

I actually read about the Neptune Room here.
It's beautifully decorated in a calming sort of way and the tables are nicely spaced.
I had an incredible asparagus salad and the lobster risotto which was very good. My friend had swordfish which was excellent.
The staff were friendly and professional. It's so hard to find a good seafood place that's not a madhouse.
It should definately have three $$$, not two.

Pros: atmosphere, staff, location

We'd been walking by this place in our neighborhood for the longest time and finally got around to trying it. The crowd is a bit uppity, so there's really no scene to speak of (think cableknit sweaters). The wait staff are nice and attentive. The menu is pricey (mid 20s for most dishes). It is tasty, although not as "imaginative" as others have said. They use a ton of butter to make things tasty, which masks the true flavor of seafood and is a shame. Skip the salads, they are small and nothing special and very expensive. Overall, we thought this place was just okay. We have had far better fish on our many visits to other places in the neighborhood, such as Zeytin.

The fish was very good, and the service was fine. A little cramped at a table by the door, but reasonably priced for the quality of the food.

Pros: Good food, reasonable prices

I live across the street from this place and never would have thought of stepping in until my friend told me about it. The outside really does not do it justice - looks like an outdated lounge from the outside. But inside is amazing food, service and ambiance. It's pricy so I like to wait for my parents to come in town to take me but one of the very great restaurants popping up on the UWS. Request a booth if you go and make reservations!

The Upper West Side has a restaurant to rave about- and worthy of a the trip uptown!

After a a series of not-so-impressive meals at new restaurants, I can't say enough positive things about The Neptune Room. From the cocktails (tasty pear martinis!) to the decor (cosy banquettes and wood panels) to the food (oh... the food!) to the service (exceptionally knowledgeable waiter who perfectly described the seared fluke special), we were impressed on all fronts. The Bait Bar is irresistible: amazingly fresh fish and creative preparations. We could have eaten nothing but this all evening and still been satisfied. We argued over whose entree was better (whole fish vs. cod vs. fluke) and still managed to taste three desserts (hands down winner: roasted bananas).

A trip uptown to try the brunch is definitely on the calendar!

Pros: Soothing, Diverse Choices, Original

The quality of the owner's other restaurant- Jane in Soho- in itself justified a visit. However, they did more than meet my expectations at the Neptune Room, they thoroughly impressed. Although we had to wait a few minutes for our table, the manager bought us a round of drinks and proceeded to take care of throughout the entire meal. We were brought an excellent oyster appetizer, a sparkling desert wine and trio of sorbets all compliments of the kitchen. Everyone was quite pleased with the entrees which included a range of seafood dishes I have not seen on many other NY menus. (I recommend the branzino and crab ravioli.) The service was attentive, the food was excellent and it has an enjoyable ambiance. It is a must-visit if you are in the UWS and certainly worth the trip if you are anywhere else.

Pros: Service, imaginative menu, broad wine list

We came looking for a nice meal to celebrate some good fortune. It turns out that the real good luck was ordering a side of gnocchi. Holy moly. My girlfriend licked the bowl clean. That might be the best thing I've eaten this year. Otherwise dinner was above average, although the raw bar appetizers are overpriced and lower quality. The tuna entree is suprisingly interesting and particularly fresh.

Great place and overall excellent experience. The shellfish is fresh and highly recommended. The flounder entree recommended by the waiter, who by the way was very pleasant and knowledgeable, was an outstanding dish. An otherwise bland white fish was so flavorful, prepared slightly golden-toasted on the outside in a light delicious cream sauce. The atmosphere is warm, set in a more classic-infused but contemporary design with exposed brick and hush lighting, conducive to casual conversation and a mature crowd. Notably, the staff all-around was very attentive from the Madre-d to the bar tender to the waiter and bus staff. Seating was prompt and parking was also pretty good. Otherwise, plenty of garages nearby. Will be back soon... BTW-The owner also owns Jane Restaurant on Houston Street, which we learned from the waiter, and also have been to on occasion including Thanksgiving Day a couple of years ago. Great place too!

The Neptune Room is a lively addition to the upper west side. I have been twice already and I will be back. The first time I went with a group of five and we sat in a comfy booth and shared the biggest selection from their "Bait Bar". It was fresh, innovative, and delicious. The next time I came with a girl friend and we sat at the bar drank white wine and tried other items from the menu. We had a fabulous time. Get a reservation because this place can be busy, and will only get busier I'm sure.

I was very skeptical going in - the prices are high and it looked like it might be a bit pretentious for the neighborhood. However, the food was superb - very interesting combinations. Service was excellent - a little over the top, but it is a new restaurant and they are settling in. The only drawback is it is definitely over-priced for what it is. Still, I will certainly return.
