Diner Reviews
  • "The food was really delicious, but the service was incredibly bad. Our waitperson was no where to be found. Took twenty minutes just to get water on the table. Also, many of the menu items were no longer available. At 6:30 pm! It's not cheap, so I expected better service and that the menu would still be available in the early evening. Used to love the place, but will probably not go as often any more."

  • "We were late to the restaurant. No problem for this restaurant. Maybe because we went there for lunch. Either way, the hostess was very friendly and courteous. Our waiter was just as friendly and provided us with exceptional service. This is my second visit; once with a group for dinner and this time for lunch. Each time I enjoyed myself immensely. Yea for City Crab for great food, quality service and a delightful dining experience."

  • "If you love seafood then this is the place to go. Great king crab legs and excellent shrimp scampi. Our favorite are the buffalo shrimp. They are simply amazing! It's very noisy but that's just the way it is nits a huge space with a lot of people. We usually go for special occasions because it can be pricey depending on what you order. We got a bit of a discount because we receive birthday coupons because we registered our email and birth dates with them. Well worth it!!"

  • "Went for restaurant week. Was a great value. Quality of food and service were great. The portions were a little on the small side. Would have liked to sit at a nicer table. We were stuck in the back but there were open tables throughout the restaurant. Despite that, we had a lovely dinner!"

  • "VERY NOISY, servers so busy they hardly have time to present the menu. Busboy hovered over us to clear plates. No timr for conversation or to enjoy the food."

  • "$80 for a 2.5 lb lobster, $36 for a carafe of Sangria, $12 for a shot of tequila. For these prices you can eat at the best restaurants in NYC. Good food and service but not worth it. Felt violated."

  • "There were 8 of us in the party and we were excited to have the stuffed lobster from the restaurant week menu. We were seated at 8pm and we told that they are out of the stuffed lobster on the restaurant week menu AND the dungeoness crab. The whole restaurant was out of lobster! There were nothing to replace the lobster dish and the restaurant was very unapologetic about it. They actually said "it's restaurant week, people love lobster, it's not our fault." I'm a chef and I know that we would always order extra items that we think diners would choose for restaurant week in particular. There was also a SCREW and a dead snail in our oysters. Better off going to the Boil or the Claw"

  • "The service was great, the food and drinks delicious. I just wish the owners would upgrade the decor. It's so dark in the restaurant. We wanted to take pictures but it was too dark to do so."

  • "The food that I ordered was great - ceviche and a wedge salad. Not extraordinary, but great. The cocktail was just okay. I'm not sure my friends enjoyed their food as much as I did. My friend had a steak and he didn't really care for it - imagine they do better on the seafood than the meat."

  • "Went for restaurant week and the prix fixe menu was pretty limited. I didn't particularly care for the food, but the drinks were great and the waiter was wonderful. My sister is a seafood lover and enjoyed the stuffed lobster, I had the halibut which was good ... didn't care for the sides it was served with. The dessert was so so. I wouldn't go there again except for drinks. The good rating is for the drinks and the service."

  • "The food was excellent but it would have been nicer to have the lobster in the Restaurant week menu with vegetables instead of fries. Our server was magnificent."

  • "My wife and I have been coming here for a couple of years now. She loves seafood and I just enjoy food period. But this is one of our favorite places to eat. It's a little on the pricier side, but well worth it. We ordered the calamari, the lobster bake and sirloin steak on this night. We had originally come for restaurant week but didn't like what they had to offer on the menu so we ordered normal dishes instead. The waitress was great and very attentive. The food was amazing. My wife loved the lobster. The steak was great as well. My friends kid me for ordering steak at a seafood place, but it was good. Will definitely continue to dine here."

  • "Seafood is very good. My favorite is the Crab Pot, a messy but well prepared meal. It is a fun place. lots of noise and activity going on. They have a great birthday special. Small negatives to note: it is very noisy, the restroom locations are not convenient, and it is somewhat pricey. But I will definitely be back."

The wait staff and the maitre'd were exceptional and very engaging. Just added to the enjoyment. No complaints from us and looking forward to our next visit. Cheers!"

  • "My husband and I love city crab. We have had brunch, dinner and happy hours there. The happy hour deals are great - half off drinks and apps. This week the restaurant had a half price lobster promotion. The waffle entree at brunch is delicious and huge! City Crab is often our go-to place when we want a light bite. We really wish there were one on the Upper West Side so it would be closer to where we live!"

  • "City Crab was a definite plus. Random pick after looking for a restaurant in the Flatiron District. The food and service proved to be great. The oysters were I've cold and the mignonette was wonderful. Great choice. The bar was hopping and they have a good Happy Hour deal 7 days per week."

  • "I could get over a noisy,loud and over cooked steak. I am less forgiving to City Crab management for allowing Miles Barker to interupt new customers meal by questioning them and not intruducing himself. After waiting 30 minutes for my food to arrive this gentleman waits until the momment its place on the table to ask me if someone moved my table. No salutations or greeting just comming at my lady and I, at which moment I told him I would leave immediately. He then ask us to stay but now my meal is ruined.We choose the place beacuse of an invitation received from them to my lady so we thought why not. Worst mistake ever this is not fine dinning a step above Dallas BBQ and thanks to Mr.Barker and his lack of training I am writing ths review"
