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.

Went here for Valentine’s Day, our reservation was for 730, we didn’t get sat until 845 and didn’t order until 935. By the time 930 came around, they ran out of the majority of their specials and didn’t offer anything for the trouble.
Very impressed by the quality of the food, just super unfortunate the service wasn’t ideal.

I booked an experience for Valentine’s Day that said champagne caviar and oysters and I got there and not only had to wait an hour but I didn’t get caviar or champagne. I want a refund.

Went for valentine dinner, with prefix menu.
Menu had a ton of great options for all 3 courses and was able to add on the sushi which is always delicious!! Service was spot on and the bartender is a true mixologist. Drinks were fantastic!!

crapshoot. made the mistake of going out on valentine’s day...but still. $75 per person, sitting outside in the cold, waiting for the food....would have been worth it if the food was any good. calamari was soggy and tasted like mayo, kale salad was basic at best and dry at worst, fillet mignon was decent but also super basic, and then the sushi platter came....sloppy, backed fish, with crazy toppings that didn’t make sense, a piece of boiled chewy inedible lobster....we didn’t even stay for desert.

Great food. Great waiter. We waited 1.5 hours for our appetizer and at least 2 hours for our entree. The waiter was working so hard and clearly felt terrible but they were clearly understaffed in the kitchen or something went wrong. Food was amazing. Drinks were amazing. Waiter was hard working and kind.

Our first night back to indoor dining and Crave was top choice! Always excellent food, service, and ambiance! They have plastic dividers between the tables, but no one was beside us for the majority of the meal.

Wonderful spot with absolutely fresh and inventive seafood. Fantastic in every way. Good cocktails and a strong wine list. The kind of restaurant that makes Manhattan special. Oysters, tuna, salmon, barramundi - all of it was superb. Heather was our server and she was patient, helpful and knew the menu cold. The service is always excellent at Crave. A must-go.

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.
