Consistently enjoyable seafood – 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.

Hard to believe but true – 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.

Greatfood – 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.

Great Food, No Scene – 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.

Seafood for the neighborhood – 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.

Dining large with the locals – 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.
