I've read the reviews over the past few months, and damn are they polarizing! Either you love it or you hate it, kind of like cilantro. (Bad analogy...?) I was surprised to come across my roommate Lauren N.'s two star review. However, the beau and I wanted to try something different for brunch, so up we went, myself with slight trepidation. The final word? I'm on the fence. There was good and there was bad.

Firm 4. It's a nice and cozy little spot, we had raw oysters that were delicious and fresh, trout salad was good, cooked oysters were ok (we had LE and casino) but did not impress that much. My only concern is the service, our waitress did not smile even once and it felt like we owe her something.

If you want oysters on the Eastside of Los Angeles, this is the place. Great seafood with stellar wine selections.

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.

Awesome place. Friendly. Good food. Relatively inexpensive. Fresh. Hard to beat. And ..: No stupid rules (unlike that ridiculous Connie and Ted's ).

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?

Great seafood but quite pricey, even for HH.

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.
