It was alright. Not enough seafood. I was still hungry after I left and I spent close to $100. Didn’t give me enough crab legs. Definitely not going back. But it was a nice experience I guess.

It was amazing, just the smell alone as you walk in the place was filling. The food was amazing I had the snow crab legs and shrimp combo in cajun classic sauce. The only thing I would probably say is the price was a bit to much for such a small portion of crab and shrimp.

We ate there on 3/28 sat at the bar we ordered the 1.00 a shuck oyster happy hour after the first dozen ordered another they were fresh and plump. We also ordered calamari was crispy and fresh tasting. The bar tenders were very attentive. Our only issue was the menu specials on open table with app soup or salad main course 11/2 lb. Lobster with shrimp other choices were king crab snow crab and rib eye steak all priced between 43 and 50 bucks alco included desert. When we tried to order the bar tender explained that they were specials for events or for catered events. They are not available for us to order the only reason we chose this restaurant was there specials and the value for NYC. We were disappointed and we think either open table or cajunsea should remove this area from the menu on open table so this cant happen again. Overall the food and service was above average. We were disappointed that we could not order what we went there for.

It’s a place to have some decent but not great lobster and crabs. I believe the crabs are frozen ones so not exactly the most fresh ones. You can tell by how the shells are soft when you try to crack them.

Touristy, midtown South location. On 3/17/19, an otherwise pleasant server brought a lobster roll incorrectly prepared and then, instead of offering to remake the order, replied "if it helps, I think it tastes better this way!". Staff in general were over eager to clear the table or take the check even though literally no one else entered the restaurant after we did. Oysters were fresh and tasty despite everything else.

Fantastic seafood at reasonable prices. The lobster bisque is superb; crab legs, lobster, shrimp & etouffe couldn't have been better. This will probably become a regular dining spot for us.

I've been a few times before and we chose to celebrate Mardi Gras there because it's Cajun. The food is good and the atmosphere is just right for a noisy celebration like that. Really good drink specials too. Word of caution, spicy means blistering hot. We had mild and it was plenty.

Nice happy hour deals on drinks and oysters. Entrees were good. On Fat Tuesday you should be playing Cajun music or a New Orleans type music. Music was a turnoff and did not contribute to the ambiance.

First time visit and for it to be Valentine's Day was even more incredible. The boil down Snow crabs, shrimp n clams bucket was GREAT. they even provided more shrimp bc I dnt eat clams. Signature cajun Medium spicy was on point, the way the flavors soak in the bucket with the food was a great idea and by far the best I have had. They had a menu already for Valentines but u like other places didnt force ot on you and you had options to choose from, IM DEFINITELY GOING BACK and our waitress was perfect (Arielle)

A Hidden Gem

Our son lives in Brookyln so we traveled to NYC from Philadelphia in order to have dinner with him. I asked him to find a seafood restaurant near our hotel. Cajun Sea was a 5 block walk from our hotel near Penn Station. So worth the walk & the food was delicious. Prices were a good value for NYC the three of us ate & drank for only $100. I had the lobster bisque and some or my sons calamari both were really really delicious. The ambiance of this restaurant is perfect for any occasion. We will definitely return to Cajun Sea upon our return to NYC!!

Waiter was very accommodating. We never felt rushed. The food was outstanding. My husband ordered the lobster boil, extra spice. "Out of this world!" I ordered lobster bisque along with seafood on a spicy tomato sauce. Delicious! They even brought over a creme brola for my husband's birthday.
My only fault were the drinks. They were similar to Shirley Temples.

My wife chose this place, and it was just, meh. We had dinner around 7pm on a Saturday night, the place wasn't overly crowded, but our waitress wasn't very good. We had a very simple order (two lobster rolls), but we wondered if they had gone out to catch the lobster fresh since it took so long. Upon tasting our food, we both remarked that we'd had better lobster rolls, but this was an experience.
