    Great selection of oysters, with very helpful descriptions in the menu. Generous amount of lobster in Lobster Roll. Whole Grilled Dorade very tasty and expertly deboned. Attentive server who made us really welcome. Not too loud! Thanks for a great dinner!

    Guys night out. The food was great and the service was the perfect level of attentiveness. The apps: calamari, octopus, crispy tacos, and salmon sashimi were all excellent. In fact we had them bring a second octopus and the onion and potato served with it are tasty enough to be their own app. The entrees which included the yellow fin tuna, the lobster roll, and the squid ink spaghetti were all delicious. We really enjoyed the carrot cake and warm cookie desserts too. All of us plan to go back with our wives.

    We came in from Long Island for the Crave Fishbar experience on 2nd Ave location, just a short walk from Grand Central Terminal. We were greeted by friendly faces and saw the new Crave Sushi restaurant. The food was excellent, ambiance throughout was nicely buzzing. Really happy we came in and plan to return.

    Our server was able to help us negotiate the Valentines Day set menu with a few slight adjustments.. that was much appreciated. The oysters,mussels & crab roll delishish as always. Steak was just ok. Lobster Curry was nice but could have had a few more pieces of lobster/veggies. Dessert was excellent. Lovely evening and always pleasant at Crave!

    Nice place and priced fairly. Oysters were great but the cocktail sauce was weak, not much flavor and needed horseradish badly. Two apps were great two were ok. Salmon entry cooked grest but sauce was just ok. Baramundi Entry was great. Their world famous banna pudding was not available. Solid place, 4 stars the best I can give it

    Food was excellent as was service. the only issue was the noise level. Just difficult to hear the server and the person I was eating with. Would definitely go back as there were so many other things on the menu I would like to try but try to find a night when it was a tad slower.

    Restaurant Week in NYC and a great bargain was had at Crave Fishbar. Three course, full portions meal for $60. Could not resist adding a few oysters as an extra starter as that is my typical meal at Crave. Service was attentive and friendly. What’s not to like?

    I chose this place for a last-minute dinner with my future parents-in-law and could not be happier. I had visited the UWS location in the past and always liked the selection. This location did not disappoint either. Great food and great service. I highly recommend the oysters and the Lobster Thai Curry.
