Great bartenders friendly staff delicious food
Horrible. Food is overpriced and no good.
I am a huge fan of this oyster bar! Every visit I am never disappointed. I let the server select my oysters from both and east coast. They are always knowledgeable. My favorite watermelon sangria is a nice collaboration to the seafood choices on menu. The BEST fish tacos I’ve ever had.
To end the meal we ordered the honey cake with honey ice cream. OMG! It’s the best oyster bar experience in NYC!
Oh and if it’s not too hot, choose outdoor dining for people watching. Always a celebrity or two strolling down the block!
Delicious food, amazing oysters, stupendous service. The lobster roll: outstanding!
Excellent quality of oysters. My go to place
Excellent food, ambiance and service! Will definitely return!
Crave FB was great. Looking forward to returning soon.
The food and service here have always been absolutely solid, thus I have returned many times! However, this time in particular, they could not have been nicer or more accommodating. I had originally had a reservation for three at a certain time; the night before, I asked if it could be for four at a time 30 minutes later - no problem. Then the night of, one of my friends was lost and the other was late. I had also requested a quiet table upstairs. Two of us showed up on time, and the manager maneuvered some things around to give us the quiet table we hoped for and seated us anyway even though our full party wasn't yet there. The other two were 20 minutes late, and despite that, no one rushed us into ordering or anything. We also lingered over a long conversation, and no one was trying to shoo us out the door. Very civilized and friendly - a neighborly restaurant with food that is well worth traveling from outside the neighborhood for!
This restaurant has excellent food and terrific service. For the first half hour of our dinner everything was fine. Then a very large party was seated opposite us and the noise became deafening. It was absolutely impossible to have a conversation at our table. So, go prepared to enjoy a silent meal.
Crave is my absolute favorite place in Midtown. They have the best oyster happy hour, great drink and food specials...and everything is absolutely delicious! It has a neighborhood feel with the warm decor and welcoming staff. Oysters, oyster shooters, tacos, sliders, sashimi tostada and yellowtail crudo are a MUST. The margarita is delicious & you can ask them to make it spicy <3 Save room for the chocolate chip cookie - it's the best I've had in Manhattan, actually all of NYC!
Excellent service upstairs!,,,
There is indoor and outdoor seating. Indoors is a bit tight but ok. I was waited on right away and the waitress was able to give me information and recommendations that were very helpful. For dinner I had the branzino with a pesto sauce. It was the whole fish but pretty well filleted. It was tender and tasty. I also ordered a side order of cheesy cauliflower which I enjoyed though a couple were slightly burnt. For dessert, I had the carrot cake. The waitress told me they were smaller portions but loaded with flavor and it was just the right size for me. It came with fig ice cream but they were willing to substitute for vanilla. I did enjoy the meal and would definitely go back another time.
Great oysters and happy hour menu. The busers who bring food to the table don’t always know what you’ve ordered so sometimes clog the table with other parts of the meal right behind them.
I wish they could make a bar drink without a lime on the first ask, but this is a common shortcoming.
First round oyster order was fresh and taste great but the second round order was a bit disappointed that the oysters seemed to have been shucked for a while. Cherrystone was good.
I absolutely love this place! The manager (Charlie) is always attentive and thoughtful. We like to sit at the bar, but they do have regular seating, as well. Alex took wonderful care of us at their oyster happy hour (everyday from 5-7pm they have drink specials and $1-$2 oysters that you can mix and match, great selection). We ended up staying well past 7pm to enjoy more items from their regular menu. The calamari is a must! I can’t wait to go back and try more of their delicious menu. You can’t go wrong here!
Food was absolutely amazing!! Oysters were so tasty and fresh. The lobster curry, barramundi fish, and squid ink pasta were delicious. Would highly recommend!
Crave Fishbar is an awesome place for Oyster happy hour, and their raw fish dishes and cocktails are excellent too. 100% recommend!
Very fresh, solid quality seafood on a heavy restaurant area of 2nd avenue. Oysters were great. Branzino very respectable. For the price, this is a very strong choice for an upper level seafood restaurant in a very comfortable, rustic setting.
We had the happy hour appetizers...fabulous!!!!! Will do it again asap!!! Would recommend this to any and all..the food was delicious and was a great value..I went with my adult children and they enjoyed it as much as I did....
Cozy restaurant with very attentive staff. Food was OK, and extremely overpriced
Love the oyster happy hour! But it’s one dozen at a time and they don’t come flying to the table
I love this place, absolutely fantastic. The best oysters in town!!!!
Great Happy Hour and oysters choices. Really enjoyed our dinner and great service. Perfect evening, hope to get back next time we are in NYC!
The food and service are excellent. While the prices are high, they seem to be bustling so that is not a deterrent for most. However the noise level is UNBEARABLE. I would think twice about returning with anyone with whom I hoped to carry on a conversation.
Although there was a line, we were seated fairly quickly after checking in with the hostess. The server was very helpful with suggestions and wine pairing recommendations. The manager came by to check in with us as well and sent us a dessert! This was our first time at this restaurant which I found via OpenTable. Both my colleague and I were very pleased with how delicious all of the food was. We had a dozen oysters as appetizers, which the server recommended three types based on our tastes we described. He also recommended the barimundi, which was amazing. Will definitely recommend and go back again.
Nashville Hot Fish Sandwich was very good. Spicy, but not too spicy. Nice that they serve it with a fresh salad instead of fries.
The pekoe crab cocktail was amazing!! Loved it
I always find Crave Fishbar consistently easygoing and reliably delicious. The menu has a nice balance of familiar dishes and some with a nice twist. I wish the host/hostess were more welcoming...they often seem indifferent or distracted. Also some wait staff aren’t very engaging. It’s a shame since those two points would make a huge difference. But it won’t keep me from going back again...I’m still a fan.
Went for happy hr and it's a great deal! It use to be dollar oysters but they've raised their prices to $1.50 for all oysters except 2 types which I don't particularly recommend. Even with the raised price it's worth it since it cost a lot more during regular hrs.
Service was great. Food was good.
We had a great dinner at Crave this evening. I loved the salmon and my husband enjoyed the octopus appetizer as his entree. It was a large portion. Our server, Ben was courteous and helpful when we ordered and kept checking in as needed. Great food and wine was good, as well.
Went for happy hour and it took 20-30 mins per order of oysters. Very slow service. Long wait for every item ordered.
All’s pretty much good except that at times we felt that we were being rushed a bit.
Good midrange neighborhood place. Accommodated our seating needs.
Excellent food - fresh oysters and seafood and innovative tastes! The staff were also very attentive and nice. Convenient midtown location.
If you want fresh seafood, It's Nice happy hour oyster! And you can drink good port white wine
Delicious seafood, including great value oysters. Baramundi was great.
I always love going to Crave and their $1/$1.50 oyster happy hour is absolutely fabulous!
Kaylee was a great waitress! She got us out fast for the show we had to go to! Don’t get there before five because they won’t seat you. Otherwise great!
Fantastic service and amazing food
