Craving oysters and took the chance to drive from Culver City to the East side. Oysters as promised, good pricing and good selection. Place is relatively small and wasn't too busy at 9pm on Saturday. Problem was the service...waiter came by twice to check on what beer I had ordered. Asked for bread - didn't get any. Saw all the other tables get hushpuppies "on the house" but none for us. We sat with empty shells in front of us for 30 minutes... Oysters great - service not! BTW - I haven't been charged for water in the past - $.50 for it here?

We wanted to eat at the restaurant but it was an hour wait. We went upstairs to the bar area (stairs are outside). The bar was loud and dimly lit. You basically order your food & drinks at the bar and then find seating; plenty of seats everywhere. They mainly serve wine. We ordered two rounds of a dozen of chef's choice oysters. The chef picks 4 variety of oysters for $28. I've tasted a lot of different oysters before but they have some oysters I've never tried before. There are other little snacks to order from.Their clam chowder was really good and full of bacon. Overall it was a great place to hang out and grab some oysters. I will come back again.

One of the (or THE) best seafood spots on Eastside, definitely high up on list for the city. Those shy about seafood should not be intimidated to eat here as even their land-based items are outstanding. Highlights include the baked oysters like the Casino, the smoked rainbow trout salad, and even the steak sandwich when it's offered. Don't skip dessert!

Truly enjoyed the experience. Nice and quiet and a great view of the ocean & pier. Food was excellent and about what I would have expected to pay for the experience.

It's not often that you find yourself knee-deep in sparkling cava, Burrata, and 12 of the freshest oysters you can find in the whole of Los Angeles. That is unless you frequent the upper 'bar' level of L&E Oyster in Silver Lake. This is one of those remarkable spots, where ambiance, food, and drink converge seamlessly to make you feel strangely at home — if your home happens to be dimly lit, and decked out in hardwood and leather. In many ways L&E exemplifies the best that this area has to offer: it's effortlessly hip, refined, unassuming, and executed at the highest level. Bartenders and service staff guide you through the rather limited upstairs menu, which seems to be curated to suit the atmosphere. Depending on what you're craving, you can't go wrong with the Daily Dozen (this is an oyster bar after all), or the rich and tangy Shrimp Po' Boy. Olives and house chips are always a great choice and the Burrata would be perfect, was it not for the rather unorthodox substitution of bread for crackers. They just don't stand up the same to the rich and creamy cheese. This is, of course, personal preference, and although usually I try to steer clear of suggesting modifications — LA is after all the land of inexplicable dining entitlement — the staff has been more than accommodating when it's come up.

A tiny spot but super cute. If you go for Happy Hour be sure to go UPSTAIRS. If you sit in the downstairs dinning area you will not have access to happy hour deals. The oysters are what you would expect from an oyster bar: clean, decent, and a wide range of options. If you want to try a multiple types of oysters I suggest ordering the “daily dozen” ($28) consisting of three different kinds of oysters which as a dozen on their own can come in around $36. While I clearly went for the oysters I also ordered the french fries (I rarely can say no to fries) and they were delicious. As a person who likes crispy fries I have to say they were quite to my taste. Valet makes parking a breeze which is super helpful in the Silver Lake Area. All in all I would say to stop by if you’re in the area and like oysters.

I ordered the oyster po-boy and a pint of beer from El Segundo Brewery. The oyster po-boy and fries plate were delish! Perfectly seasoned and tasty. The sandwich was so packed that I had to use a knife and fork to devour it. As soon as I sat down and even before David knew I was Elite, he promptly greeted me and offered me a carafe of still or sparkling water and asked if I was having dinner. Although he was busy, he took the time to check on me and chat with me. Very friendly and attentive -- how bartenders should be! Great service is very important to me when dining out. Because of David, I will definitely stop by again and try the unique items served on the second floor! David definitely turned around my bad experience two years ago. If you're a seafood (oyster) lover, I highly recommend L & E Oyster Bar!
