Award winning raw bar featuring oysters from the Naked Oyster sea farm in Barnstable. Bistro atmosphere by the bar with quieter dining room in back and wine room downstairs for private parties of 12 to 20. Executive chef/owner Florence Lowell, native of Bordeaux, delivers modern French taste and style utilizing fresh local products from sea and land. Carefully crafted martinis and a well-priced interesting wine list complete the "Oyster" experience. A great place to relax and enjoy food, drink, and friends or for a quiet business lunch.

Slowest service I have ever received. We were 2 of 4 people sitting to eat. We were visiting the area in January, very slow time. Would expect the service to have been much better

The Naked Oyster is a nice restaurant, but this time it was sub-par. We were there early so we had a window-side table, but the service was slow. And the salmon dish I had was so-so which is unusual. The presentation was excellent but some...More

They take reservations of parties of 5 or more. My husband and I visited late June and were always able to get a table. If you have to wait, you won’t regret it! The Naked Oyster will forever be our all-time favorite... More
