  • "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!"

  • "Our server was awesome. It was a crab place, kind of low key so I was surprised that our server knew so much about the wine. I'm pretty sure her name was Michele. Crab legs were awesome. So was Oreo ice cream cake. Wow"

  • "Everything was delish...In a strange way it reminded me of an "upscale" Red Lobster, sounds strange but the ambiance wasn't what I expected so maybe that was the reason....The Bolognese was amazing! Service was good..."

  • "Fresh, excellent sea food. Our party of five had four lobsters and one jumbo prawn dinner with caesar salads; everybody happy. Key lime pie dessert was great and even the coffee was good."

  • "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"

  • "went on a lark for dinner. passed by this place for what seems like 20 years and never been. food was actually awful. and bc of that waaaaaay overpriced. the crab cakes were so bad! how do you actually ruin crab cakes? the alaskan king crab legs need to come cut down their length. horrible. brussels sprouts were made in advance and reheated so rubbery. the space is really nice and spacious. asked for beer that never came and caipirhana was watery and gross (again, how does one DO this?)"

  • "I took my father here for father's day. Both he and I are patient people for new yorkers and we got impatient. We arrived early and it wasn't busy. However, it seemed understaffed or just plain overwhelmed. For a table of four it took an hour for food to arrive. We were handed a second person to wait on us because the first one was leaving. The second one never checked on us. It became busy and it got worse. I had to constantly flag her down for requests. It was the longest meal ever! 2.5 hours. I probably won't go back on a sunday or for a special occasion."

  • "Went for a late dinner on a Tuesday with some friends, and learned that all oysters were half price for the week. ordered 2 dozen, and were very disappointed with the shucking. We mentioned this to our waiter, who said he would say something to the chef. We ordered 2 dozen more with high hopes, and were disappointed again. Gritty and dirty, which was a big letdown. We were told that the regular guy was off for the night, but I don't think that we will be back to check out his skills."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "I've eaten at every other restaurant in the neighborhood and finally got around to trying this one. Because it looks big and trendy, I didn't have high hopes for the food, but I was mistaken. The salmon and the snapper were both very good. I will be returning regularly."

  • "I got the free birthday entree from City Crab and went with a friend of mine. It was the best experience! Our reserved table was ready when we got there, our waitress was so friendly and helpful, AND I got a $35 lobster meal for free! Make sure to fill out the paper they give you with your check at the end because that's how you get your free birthday entree. Incredible place."

  • "The portions are a good size. We shared buttermilk crusted shrimp and a lobster clam bake and they were both fabulous. The cheesecake dessert was truly New York cheer cake. As usual we walked away very full and satisfied."
