    Always a treat to be here. Thoughtful menu, informed servers, and beautifully crafted dishes make every visit memorable. Oysters are always prepared exactly as they should be: super clean and cut correctly, and with no runt specimens on the tray, ever. Love them for this alone, but they excel in every other category as well. Oh, and a perfect drink and dessert menu to boot!! ❤️🦪

    Service was friendly, vibe was comfortable, food was delicious but a little salty which I personally don’t mind but others may. It was a great end to a nice day. I’m originally from New England and felt the seafood was very fresh for New York and not too overpriced. Cocktails were tasty and had nice presentation.

    Excellent from the waitress and staff all the way to the wine and dessert. Not to miss fresh calamari or salmon tostada … do not pass up! Barramundi was fabulous over asparagus. They have a patio that is lighted but the restaurant signage is difficult to see so you may not know you’ve arrived if you are not from the area … manager was meticulous on cleaning protocols and guest experience.

    We had reservations but our table wasn’t ready. We were shown to the bar & told a round of drinks was on the house due to the wait. That was very good customer service & very appreciated. The bartender was cheerful, accommodating & made delicious cocktails. Our food was fine but nothing I would recommend for a special evening. The chef definitely likes heat in the dishes!

    The food was fantastic, as usual, but the service staff was unusually intrusive, kept interrupting, brought the main course in before the appetizers, and initially blamed us for the mix-up.

    My seafood, including oysters and tuna, was very good. My wife not so much. Her salad had too much chard so it was very bitter plus the 3 shrimp she added on were pretty small and definitely not worth the extra cost. Service was pretty slow and it wasn’t even that busy. It was an OK experience and we might try it again the next time we are in NYC but it definitely wasn’t a 5 star experience

    My friend and I had dinner at Crave last night and it was amazing. Heather and her staff went out of their way to provide delicious food and friendly, attentive service. We were glad that our server, Juan, offered to prepare a selection of oysters for us, since we couldn’t decide. He returned with them and an explanation of the flavors and characteristics of each. We had fun savoring and comparing. The appetizers we sampled were also tasty. Since Juan and Heather both recommended the barramundi, we had to try it. And we were so glad we did. It was delicious. We followed up with a milk bar pie for dessert. Yum. Great food, caring people, what more could we ask for? Will definitely return. .

    Tried this place for the first time last week. Everything that we tasted was delicious! Big Ben cocktail was yummy. Smoke & mirrors cocktail was strong, and very smokey - hubby loved it. Calamari, which we often have to pass on, was GF - dusted with rice flour, served with sprouts. Delish! Appy salad to share was great. Fish tacos, baramundi and tuna all got raves! We will be back to sample other menu selections soon. And bring friends!
