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.

Great outdoor dining experience. Oysters were superb, as always. Soft shell crab special was exquisite. Chili-dusted calamari and squid ink spaghetti were terrific as well.

Went there specifically for oysters but was disappointed with the happy hour price/selection. This review is strictly limited to happy hour oysters as their other food are great. Covid must have greatly affected the price and selection all around for other oyster bars. Hard to blame but still disappointed.

Great Happy Hour deal. Interesting draft beer and wine list.
Lobster Curry and Barramundi were highlights for mains.
Finished by home made cookie alamode and Afagato.
Will go back soon.

Looking for an oyster special happy hour near our hotel! Yelp gave a list of top 10 places! Crave Fish Bar was in walking distance! Our server, Whitney was attentive, knowledgeable and friendly! The oysters were small, briny, fresh and delicious! We also had the tuna tartare and the oyster shot! We liked it so much we took our family there for Fathers Day! The 7 of us ate outside! Emily did an amazing job serving us! The oysters, tuna and lobster rolls were all fresh and delicious! The warm chocolate chip cookie with vanilla ice cream was just what we needed to end a lovely dinner.

We were outside so ambience/noise are both a little different than normal comparisons. The Nigiri and Lobster Curry were both amazing. Service was pretty much perfect.

An enjoyable dinner during happy hour. A dozen oysters, calamari and fish tacos. The service was adequate although not energetic. I was seated for 15 minutes before someone came by to greet me and the place was only 1/2 full so it wasn't overly crowded. I wasn't in a rush so it didn't matter, but there wasn't much effort in checking on tables after food was delivered either, or refilling drinks. I was dining alone and observing other tables around me. None of us were attended to very well. A party of 5 had empty glasses for almost my entire meal before the waitress inquired if they wanted another round. It seems like that would be lost revenue for the owners, and they might consider addressing it or training their staff to be more observant. Food was quite good though and I would definitely return.
