Crave Fishbar Midtown is a vibrant, convivial restaurant in Manhattan serving an inspired seafood menu from chef Todd Mitgang. An eclectic mix of reclaimed materials and custom made chairs and tables lend a beachy, rustic feel to the space, which houses a 25-foot-long bar where guests can order from the full dinner menu along with cocktails and wine from a mounted bottle display. Journey up to the 2nd floor and watch an army of shuckers plating raw bar platters. Approachable, sophisticated dishes feature local seafood, crudos, and meat dishes that are thoughtfully prepared with both familiar and exotic ingredients. Crave Fishbar has taken its place as a neighborhood fixture, providing locals and newcomers alike with a elegant, inviting experience.
We were the first NYC restaurant partner of the Monterey Bay Aquarium so that every single item on the menu is sustainable and all of our practices are to better our oceans.

Food was good. Sat in the upstairs level. Incredibly noisy! They need to invest in some sort of acoustical panels! Could barely hear myself think.

Overall it was great, atmosphere, ambiance and decor where perfect. Getting seated was a little annoying, had a reservation and had to wait to be seated (by an overwhelmed hostess) as she attended to other people that arrived after us. Others without reservations were sent ahead of us to “see if you can find an open spot” while we waited to be shown our table.

Happy Hour Oystergram is great. We went for dinner and ended up gorging on oysters and other happy hour treats. Oysters were fresh and there was an excellent selection. The other fish dishes were very fresh, but needed more seasoning. There was no salt and pepper on the table, which would have helped. Service was outstanding our server was Kristy who was excellent, but I noticed how all the wait staff supported each other to make service beyond expectations.

Although my wife's dish was very good, mine which cost $40 was disappointing. The service is very good but the noise level needs fixing.

Great oyster selection when I came for the happy hour. Branzino was cooked very well with its sauce and sides. But the carot cake, it was absolutely out of this world. Its cream topping, caramel touch, ice cream. What an improvisation! You may choose to come only for that. Surely will be back.

We were seated at the 2 tops near the bar so it was a little nosier than we would have liked. Also people walking back and forth was a bit annoying especially when the bar had people standing and waiting near us. However the food was delicious and our server was great!!
