    food was not worth the price. The calamari was really good but a bit on the coolder side. Warm crab sushi was not warm, in fact the wrap was not tasteful and the taste was not there. The black swuid ink spaghetti was the worst. The broth was tasteless, not rich in flavor at all. It was Campbell's-like

    Amazing happy hour. Three of us shared oysters that were so fresh. Barramundi, yellowtail, and Jonah crab roll for dinner with a bottle of cava. Service was incredible. Will be back.

    We came for brunch. Started with their shucker’s choice oysters which were great since we couldn’t come during happy hour. Their fish is tasty and well presented. Drank like a dignified fish :) Highly recommend.

    Crave Fishbar offered very good fish and seafood choices at brunch. We needed a good midtown brunch spot on a Sunday, not an easy find in fact. Crave fit the bill. We did not have cocktails but there were lots on offer. We tried the salmon tostada, the sushi rolls in soy, the lobster roll and the cod fish sandwich; all were well presented and delicious. I would visit again.

    We enjoyed our seats on the balcony on a slightly cooler end of summer night. The fish tacos and Jonah crab pasta were spicy but very tasty and nicely presented. The warm chocolate chip cookie was rich and delicious. Our servers were friendly, attentive and efficient. Great night overall!

    The food was delicious. I would have given Crave 5 stars if it hadn’t been for the incredibly rude treatment I received shortly after I entered. I arrived 10 minutes early for 4 PM reservation. The door was open, so I walked in. As the hostess was about to seat me, a loud and belligerent voice came from across the room. It was a server telling me that the kitchen and bar were closed until 4:00, and I should come back then. The hostess continued to seat me. The server then berated the hostess in front of other employees, telling her that she shouldn’t have done that because other people would come in. Apparently, she was afraid of attracting customers. The only reason I stayed was because I was expecting a friend and we had both wanted to check the restaurant out. Too bad I won't be coming back. It could have been a favorite.

    The food was fair. The desserts were a happy surprise at the end and were better than good. This was a general consensus. Nothing was bad. The staff was all very nice. A little cramped for a 6 person table. It was a tight booth in all directions. The raw bar items were very good. I wouldn't say I'd never go back, but only if in the area. Probably for a drink, oysters, clams and the cookie.

    Fun place, and great mission. Full on a Saturday night. Not a ton of food for the money but the flavors were good. We lucked out and sat on the balcony, but I still don't understand how it was a legal balcony! Looked like the fire escape to me!

    through the last years we have ordered hundreds on spicy margaritas in tens of restaurants in many US cities and were NEVER charged extra for "spicing the drink"....never mind double charge for "extra spicy"...what? Petty and ridiculous... even though it is only $1 and $2 for extra spicy...(on top of a 16$ drink) its insulting and too petty to justify going back ....

    Made a reservation in advance through open table for my girlfriend's birthday during a trip to NYC. I made specific note of her birthday in the reservation. Upon arrival we were seated to a nice table. We each tried a specialty cocktail. Started with the salmon sashimi tostada which we both liked. Girlfriend ordered the oven roasted barramundi and I ordered the fusilli calabresi with Jonah crab. The service was good to very good during the first half of our dining experience. Our entrees came out and we both enjoyed our food. She had another drink. Then service took a big dropoff towards the end and it became harder and harder to track him down. Once we did, we ordered desert. We were seated in a high traffic area of the restaurant but somehow 15 to possibly 20 minutes passed without any desert arriving. To the point when our server passing by our table his acknowledgement was to express surprise and say out loud to us "your desert hasn't come yet?" To which we confirmed no it hadn't. Another 5 or 10 minutes and it did arrive. But without a little candle to acknowledge the special occasion. We ate the desert and as we finished our drinks tried again to find our server. At some point we were able to ask for our check. I quickly reviewed and gave him my credit card. Unfortunately then again time dragged on to just get our check and card returned to just be on our way. I had to get up and ask to hostess if check back to close out and leave. Nice restaurant ambiance. The food was very good. The nosedive in service tainted the overall dining experience unfortunately while may just have been an off night.

    Had drinks and dinner here with an old friend. Drinks were delicious - great bourbon Manhattan- and wine choices were plentiful at fair price. Had oysters on the half shell. Perfect. Me b’day special mussels for dinner. I had the white wine mussels and my friend had the traditional Provençal. We both enjoyed it. Large serving with tasty broth, great bread for dunking and, of course, a side of fries. Service was good and relaxed. Would definitely return!

    Went with my team from work. To start, the little moody hostess started the night badly. When I’ve tried to go to Crave she’s unfortunately there and always rude. Tonight was the 1st time I got sat and it was like pulling teeth to get a decent table despite the fact the place wasn’t packed. I’ve been a hostess and I know being inflexible and unpleasant was her choice. Not good for business. Besides her, the experience was good. Cocktails great. Food very good. I recommend the good life cocktail, salmon sashimi and the sushi roll with the broccoli rabe in it.
