I went to late dinner with a friend. We had both been to Fatty Crab before and remembered having good experiences. At the door, we noticed they now have a "B" sanitation grade, but thought to try anyway. We came into the restaurant and were immediately told that they were "out of a lot of things" because they "weren't supposed to be open" that night. We decided we were okay with that and ordered drinks and dinner. While we ate, we one of about 3 tables seated inside, with one group sitting outside. The restaurant suddenly started playing music very out and had a boisterous group at the bar. Our waiter came back several times asking if we wanted more drinks, though we responded "no" every time. It felt as though we were being rushed to leave. I think perhaps we should have just left and perhaps they should've closed as originally planned. Our food was good and I enjoyed my cocktail, but the service left a very bad taste in my mouth.
Best restaurant in the city. Shame tonight was its last night open.
Interesting and innovative cuisine.....nice place to hang out and love the flavors that are asian but very special.
Poor service, Overpriced and average food. Slow food delivery and patronized by waiter.
I had been to this restaurant in the past and the food was amazing, the food was really not that good this time around.
Love our waiter. The staff is so fabulous and easy going. We love Fatty Crab.
Absolutely delicious. We had the steamed pork and veggie buns, soft shell crab with the chili sauce, Brussel sprouts and coconut rice. Everything was divine!! I went back again the very next day with another friend. Lol. Our waiter was also excellent and provides great suggestions.
Terrible! Food is extremly expensive and we did not eat enough. Very nosy and bad service. Never going again
I don't get to travel to New York that often but when I do I always try to make time to visit. If you want a relaxed evening with great food with your friends then this is the place to go. Unless you have a strong preference for what you eat, let your host make some recommendations for you after guiding them on your taste preferences. Everything is to share to order a few different dishes and just tuck in.
Yes, it would be nice if the outside tables weren't so close to the road but you'll be too busy chatting and eating to really bother you.
Would highly recommend.
Nothing on the menu was available and everything was an issue
Unusual Asian food but small neighborhood restaurant. Shared dishes that come when hot so too much came at once.
Overrated. Food was ok but fatty (not fatty in a good way like pirogie belly, just fatty) and way more spicy than o like (I like spicy!). But it was ok.
As ever, this buzzy Meatpacking joint lived up to expectations. Great food, including a delicious soft shelled crab and a side of amazing Brussel sprouts. Yum! Noisy, packed and vibrant. Great fun.
The small bites and the appetizers are unbelievable - next time I'll tripple up on the appetizers and forego the mains, although the duck was awesome. The Panchito (a tequila shot, a sangrita shot, and a Tecate beer rimmed with kalamansi juice and chilli salt) is just great - so refreshing!
A local favorite! Get the soft shell crab and mussels while still in season. Both awesome. Grab a seat outside if you can.
