Crave Fishbar - Midtown

Seafood
Crave Fishbar Midtown is a vibrant, convivial restaurant in Manhattan serving an inspired seafood menu from chef Todd Mitgang. An eclectic mix of reclaimed materials and custom made chairs and tables lend a beachy, rustic feel to the space, which houses a 25-foot-long bar where guests can order from the full dinner menu along with cocktails and wine from a mounted bottle display. Journey up to the 2nd floor and watch an army of shuckers plating raw bar platters. Approachable, sophisticated dishes feature local seafood, crudos, and meat dishes that are thoughtfully prepared with both familiar and exotic ingredients. Crave Fishbar has taken its place as a neighborhood fixture, providing locals and newcomers alike with a elegant, inviting experience.
We were the first NYC restaurant partner of the Monterey Bay Aquarium so that every single item on the menu is sustainable and all of our practices are to better our oceans.

Better outdoor heated space than many other places I’ve eaten since indoor dining was prohibited. Food is always good, with the menu the right size — enough choice for variety but few enough dishes to focus and get them all right. Friendly service, which right now is saying something.

My friend and I went for happy hour and we were quite pleased with the whole experience. The oysters on offer were very fresh and the bottle of Prosecco on offer for happy hour was very good! Dry, not sweet at all! Service, as usual, was courteous and executed well!

Covid has this restaurant messed up. The tables are slanted so the food slides off. The food is not that good. Service was just ok. Would never go again.

Amazing restaurant. They had something new on the menu and I asked my wife if she thought we should try since we already love so many different things on the menu. "Yes, let's try it" she responded, "everything they do is great." She was right. Stellar, top flight place. Oh and they gave us a bottle of champagne to take home and open at midnight since it was New Year's Eve. Can't recommend this place enough.

Big fan of this place but must say the menu has become much more limited we were disappointed to see some favorites no longer on the menu like the tuna tacos, yellowtail sashimi appetizer and not even raw clams. Definitely understand how the current environment has impacted restaurants but it was disappointing to see the limited menu. However, we ordered the calamari appetizer and two homemade pasta dishes which were all excellent and generous portions. Cocktails tasted good but did not seem to have much alcohol in them at all.

we sat upstairs, very socially distanced from other tables and the noise level minimal, a relief! Service was a bit slow but the waiter was very good, just doing what appeared to be double or triple-duty. W e had fluke and salmon dinners--excellent. Good cocktails. Calamari appetizer was just okay. I would definitely return

Great spot, wonderful seafood: calamari, lobster curry, shrimp with black squid linguini, all delish. Tip: dine on the terrace only 4 tables separated by plexi and heated.

We sat inside in the back and there was only one other two top seated. Excellent spacing for social distancing. Even in these crazy COVID times, they honored their daily oyster happy hour! Choices were more limited but we were thrilled to partake in our favorite local HH. The server could not have been nicer as well.

Since Crave is not open yet on the Upper Westside, we decided to take the 2 mile walk to the midtown location. Worth ever step!

We love the food, people, management, etc. A regular for us on the UWS. Can't wait for the reopening (we hear before the holidays) on the UWS.

Always my go to spot for fresh fish with unusual preparation. The best calamari ( pan dusted) . We had the lobster curry and shared it. A must have if you like a Thai style curry.
Highly recommend. And outdoors upstairs is great
