Amazing food and wonderful service! A new favorite spot for sure. Literally amazing... With gratitude!
The food is so fresh and delicious that you won’t mind the noise level. The service was outstanding. Snapper was one of the best pieces of fish I ever had - just plain grilled, just delicious. Delicata squash side dish was heavenly. Warm cookie a la mode was worth every calorie.
I always love coming here. Server was super nice, as were the bussers. One of the best oyster happy hours in the city. Also: the fried fish sliders are PHENOMENAL. Great selection of wine and cocktails. Comfy seating with plenty of space and attentive service. Always down to return!
Nice fresh oysters and fresh fish
Went on a Sunday night, so perhaps the food was not as fresh as usual. But the shrimp in the shrimp cocktail were absolutely tasteless. My friend ordered tartare which was brought to her without any bread--not even a cracker. We both got barramundi for the main course. It was tasty, but nothing special. Servers were pleasant and accommodating but the service seems scattered. For example, we both ordered cold appetizers-so why was one brought right away and we had to ask for the other before it came out?
I highly recommend Crave. Reservation process, ambiance, service, food presentation were all top notch. I’m looking forward to going back.
Possibly the best seafood I've ever had. Everything was incredibly fresh, well portioned, and well seasoned.
Hits and if I'm paying upper 20's to upper 30's for food, I don't imagine cramped booth seating. In any case, we had oysters during the happy hour and those were delightful! Really fresh! As for the main entree, out of the 4, only 1 could be rated as GREAT - the seared yellowfin tuna. All the ingredients went well to make the dish a winner. The cavatelli I just couldn't enjoy it because of the aforementioned reasons. So to sum it all, I feel the overall experience at this restaurant would prevent me from returning or recommending this place.
Great as always!!!
Found and booked thru OpenTable
Although it was Valentines Day eve and needed a table in 15 minutes got confirmation and when we arrived, we were showed to the table within 3 minutes, although there were few people waiting and were ahead of us.
Chose the place using distance, cusine, reviews, and availability criteria.
The food was absolutely gourmet - we loved it!!!
Everyone was very sweet and checked on us constantly. Only issue was our reservation got pushed back 15 minutes
We went for valentines dinner. The portion size was very small for the price. Left restaurant still hungry and had to stop to eat somewhere else afterwards. Food quality was acceptable.
My wife and I don’t get to go out for a nice dinner too often as our little guy keeps us so busy!
We’ve gone to this location twice and both times were amazing too to bottom. The service was excellent, the food was to die for, and the oyster happy hour can’t be beat!
Will absolutely be going back for our next date night. It’s now tradition!!
Thank you everyone for making our special dinners so special.
The restaurant is lovely and spacious. The food was fresh and very well prepared. The staff was friendly and professional. I have absolutely no complaints and look forward to my next visit here.
Went with the family (including grandkids) for oyster happy hour and dinner. Great selection, taste and value. Wonderful lobster curry and seafood stew. We will return again and again.
Delicious having it all mixed in would have been too much. Delicious otherwise. Tuna was magnificent, as were the apps -- pork belly and octopus.
The atmosphere is outstanding. We had a table upstairs by the raw bar. Love the decor. Food and wait staff were excellent. We will recommend to others and will be back.
As always, great dinner at Crave. All the appetizers were terrific and mains were great as well. Very dependable and creative dishes make for a fun dinner.
Food was great. Staff were great! I would recommend this restaurant to a friend. I’d go back.
Good seafood products with innovative but simple servings!
delicious, creatively cool menu and atmosphere!! strongly recommended
Very good restaurant with very good food. A bit pricey, but reasonable.
The quality and freshness of the seafood here is exceptional -- especially the west coast oysters. The preparations are simple and elegant, always highlighting the subtle flavors of the sea and never overwhelming them. It's expensive, but it's worth it.
Had an absolutely fabulous time. Carlos and Ben could not have been nicer, more gracious or welcoming. The food was excellent and the service even better. Can’t recommend this place enough.
Great causal atmosphere but feels upscale. If you like great seafood this is the place to be.
Crave Fishbar is one of the best places to go for oysters and impeccably prepared fresh fish. the host and staff are friendly and helpful. we love the atmosphere and energy of this restaurant.
Great food, service, last minute reservation.
I was on a business trip and they seated me in a corner by the window so I can watch NY while enjoying a glass of wine. Food was delicious. They partnered with Monterey Bay Aquarium for sustainable fishing - this is BONUS for me. Weekday dining was mellow and quiet which is what I needed after a busy day. Will definitely come back to try other items on their menu
Wonderful meal. Very relaxing experience. Fabulous drink and seafood menu!
Good time with a group of eight friends for dinner
The upstairs was so loud we quickly ate our food to get out of there. A real pity for such a good
selection and nice staff
Seated immediately, nice welcome and responsive servers made it clear that they wanted us to be comfortable. We’re tall and needed a bit more space. Apps and Happy Hour snacks were great and wine selections were on target! Entrees arrived hot and fresh. Portions are traditional and flavorful. Chocolate Chip cookie desert was perfect. Really pleasant, low key pescatarian experience! Second visit and will go again!
Everything was wonderful
Even at the worst table in the restaurant Crave does not disappoint. Just make sure you ask to sit upstairs or in the back!
We love Crave. Had fabulous oysters and then some other items. Prawns Fra Diavolo were spectacular.
Great happy hour place!!
ONE OF THE MORE INVENTIVE FISH MENUS IN MANHATTAN. I HIGHLY RECCOMMEND!!!!
Amazing deal for oyster happy hours. Ended up ordering food as well and they (steak, mussels) definitely exceeded expectations as a raw bar. We sat upstairs so it was a little less happening but good for conversations.
The happy hour food and drink menu was great, especially for oyster lovers. Can’t beat buck-a-shuck! We tried a few other items on the menu and they were all tasty too.
We had a 9 pm reservation on a snowy Sat night. We were immediately greeted and seated at a high top in the bar area (which we wanted). Ben, our witty server came over and was a pleasure to work with throughout our meal. He was very knowledgeable about the oysters, oyster shooters and recommended the grilled octopus appetizer (which was delicious). Next, he answered questions about the entrees and my husband and I both chose the Tuna and we were so happy we did. The sushi grade then seared around the edges tuna was sliced and placed on top of Mexican street corn (yum) and that was atop of fingerling potatoes with an amazing salsa. Very different from standard Asian style tuna and we both loved it. We can’t wait to come back again and also try the highly rated Happy Hour.
