Dockeast LLC

★★★★★
This anchored ship of a restaurant is as nautically themed as its menu. For it's location and atmosphere, it could easily be mistaken for an expensive magnet for the cash-rich, but Docks is a more humble place with a middle-class feel and reasonable prices.

The dinner was fresh and delicious. We didnt have a reseration and yet only waited a half hour. The meal was a bit pricey yet well worth it. I would go back.

I ate at this restaurant with a friend and the food was good but when the bill came it was for well over $200. When I asked why the bill was so high they had to look into it. After a long time, they told me that my bill had "married"

I have eaten in Dock's restaurant since they opened in the 80's. It always has been one of my favorite restaurants. I thought it was time to write something. The seafood is always fresh and the service is really good. I highly recommend

I work in a restaurant business. Actually I own a few restaurants in Manhattan. So usually I'd never complain about anything since I know it's a tough business.

I love oysters and in every city I travel to, I try to find the ultimate spot. The $1 oysters are a bargain but I'd rather pay more to be in an an establishment were the staff seems at least a little happy. I still came back the next day

I've been to my fair share of restaurants in NY, and this is by far the worst. We went for dinner and got typical seafood (calamari, seafood pasta, chocolate cake) and all of it was horrible. It wasn't that the food wasn't fresh... it

Pros: quality,service,value for money, nearby parking convenient

Cons: some portions small, others adequate. parking for 2 hour dinner not subsidized

Very large space and can get a bit loud. Good seafood but portions tend to be on the small size with high pricetags. Overall, nice ambiance and fun space to be in.

This restaurant is always packed...To be honest with you, I really don't get it. The food is mediocre and it is quite pricey. The service was excellent tho. I just don't see what the fuss is about.

Looking for a place to bring the family where you can still get oysters on the half-shell? Dock's is the place for you! Featuring world-class seafood of every variety, Dock's is great for the most sophisticated palettes. But look deeper in the menu, and you'll find pasta, steak, and even a great burger! Fun and vibrant atmosphere, as well!

Arrived in NYC after a day of planes, trains and automobiles. The hotel recommended Dock's Oyster Bar at 3rd and 40th. The service I received was awful. I only saw my waiter once, when he took my order. Another waiter actually sat on

Horrible service, food was below average and served cold. Our waiter was the worse, he quickly took our orders, did not tell us the specials, and the food came 25 mins late. The place is huge, kinda of noisy, not romantic at all if thats

I've been here twice, and thoroughly enjoyed it both times. My boyfriend and I share the oyster sampler and two lobster special (they're small lobsters, but just enough for us). It's pretty standard fare, but makes for a very pleasant night out.

Four people had four 2 lb. lobster meals a bottle of wine, two drinks and a few beers. The bill came to over $370 and we questioned a $2 charge for chocolate sauce on the ice cream. The Monday night manager said that under no circumstances could she ever remove this charge as it was set by the chef and she had no authority to change it. The fact that when we placed our order at 6:30 they had already run out of the size lobster we wanted and as a result we ordered a more expensive meal made no difference. Docks has good food, adequate service and an unbelievably bad concept of what customer service means.

I was in to have dinner on Saturday Oct. 10, 2004. The food was great. I had a halibut dish that just was to die for. The specials starrt at 5pm, I was able to fing out that they have a Clam Bake night in which my husband and I will be going to on Sunday. I love the oysters, they have a Oyster feastable twice a year, hay every Noverber. I will be eating here everytime we go to the city.

Docks is hassle free great food on the Upper West. Fish is fantastic. No frou- frou, portions are great. Recently had waitress say she could not recommend a white wine, questionnable at best... But they have great fresh seafood and always crowded and friendly. Try not to get a table in the way back, it's a little claustrophobic back there. Always a reliable choice if you are in the mood for seafood and close by.

It's not the best seafood in the world, but it is consistent and solid. The fresh oysters in season can be excellent -- like buttah. A while back, a ceviche special -- a novel version with orange juice served in a wine glass, was really good. Staff is good, usually knowledgeable, friendly neighborhood feel.

Solid seafood offerings highlight the menu here at Dock's on the Upper West Side. Was seated right away on a Thursday night and started with the mussels in tomato and garlic sauce, which was about what one might expect. The portion was huge though, and must have included 30 mussels; that, coupled with the fine bread basket, was a meal in itself but I of course was just getting started. My lady started with the cold seafood salad which we agreed was one of the great salads we've ever experienced. Entree-wise I went with the whole Pompano/lemon caper sauce from the specials menu--also excellent. The whole package plus a couple of drinks came to $75--can't beat it. Service was excellent, though slightly rushed. On the whole, a pleasant surprise. Bread 8, circus 7. Bon Appetit from Chicago, Ward James.
