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.

The place for raw bar especially for happy hour! Great sides too. Totally worth a go. Sit upstairs if you want a quieter area to chat! Attentive service too.

Oysters were ice cold and a delicious way to start our meal! Everything was cooked to perfection, salmon, tuna, and chicken! Everyone enjoyed and it was all responsibly priced

My fiancé and I had dinner at the Crave Fishbar - Midtown on Friday February 16. I will start by saying we would not hesitate to visit again. We arrived in the City later afternoon without a plan and looking for a place for dinner that served fish. We found Crave Fishbar on Yelp and it sounded interesting so we made a quick reservation.

The place is small and quaint but very nice and comfortable. Our server Kristen was the best. Very pleasant and attentive but not overbearing where we thought we were being rushed. She was very knowledgeable on the dishes and helped us choose.

Unfortunately, we did not know about the Happy Hour oysters so we missed the time. However, we did have 6 and they were very good. Fresh and cold. They served a house seasoning with eh oysters in addition to the Minuet and cocktail. I cannot recall what it was called but you have to try it. We also shared the Italian Burratta, this was a wonderful twist. Most Burratta are all cheese, but the addition of the shaved persimmon and pears really kicked it up

For dinner my fiancé had the Squid ink pasta and I had the Barramundi. Both were exceptional with plenty to eat without overdoing it.

When we left we were very satisfied people.

Had a fabulous dinner on Friday night for my daughter’s birthday. We started with oysters which were some of the best I’ve eaten. Had the Lobster Curry which was absolutely delicious. Our server was attentive and kind. Offered a special dessert for my daughter’s birthday. Will definitely go back!

Food was too buttery, all the dressing and sauce were over power the seafood. Expected to eat a nice lobster dish, not with pasta and tomato sauce which again over powder a good taste the labster.

This was our 2nd time here. They had a set menu for Valentine’s Day. The appetizer course was delicious, but our main plate (barramundi) was quite bland. We will be back for the happy hour when they serve fresh oysters for a buck a piece.

A lovely setting for an informal work lunch. The cauliflower soup was rich and creamy and the fish sandwich was best of breed. Friendly and helpful service

Very refreshing to experience great food that is affordable in the City. Cauliflower Ouster Soup is a must try, but Calamari, Crayfish Sandwich, Burrata Salad, everything was fresh and delicious.
