#Oystergram Happy Hour
NYC's best oyster happy hour featuring $1 and $1.50 oysters. Up to 20 oysters offered with cocktail, beer and wine specials from 5-7 PM.
This is one of our favorite places. Food is great, service wonderful and all around a great group who run this restaurant. Definitely give it a try. You will be thrilled
Brilliant place. Great ambience, wonderful service, quality food.
I love this place! The salmon taco’s, the drinks, the oyster happy hour - things dreams are made of!
The tostadas are incredible as in the barracuda. Definitely try them!
This was a great experience. Perfect merging of neighborhood pub and fancy restaurant. The oysters were salty, briny deliciousness. The fish tacos were amazing. Everything was really terrific. The martinis were cold and perfect.
Really cute place. We had a great time. Good food, drink and ambiance!
Food and service consistently good. Noise level can be an issue on busy nights but it’s worth it for the overall quality!
Neighborhood gem. Amazing happy hour oyster special. All of the food is fantastic. The staff is very friendly. I recommend the salmon tosadas and the calamari. Really can't go wrong with anything on the menu. The fries are fantastic!
The menu changed and also the flavor and taste also keeps changing. It was good the very first time and every time we went back it was kit the same
I met a client there for the Oyster happy hour. It was great. The food and service were first rate. The problem came later. The problem was with the front desk/seater. Although I made a reservation through OpenTable and checked in, I was reported as a "no show." And this despite the fact that I paid with a credit card, so they had proof I was there. So far, not the end of the world. My wife called the restaurant that evening to try to straighten things out. She spoke to someone who: refused to check the credit card receipts until my wife gave her the time, amount of the charge and what we had; then reported that I had actually double booked with my guest (not true); that the guest was named Steven (also not true); and so forth. Ultimately, she agreed to report me as having shown up (as I had in fact done) as an "accommodation." But not after essentially calling me and my wife liars. The restaurant, of course, has the opportunity to make this right. But they haven't tried to do that yet. So I am on the fence about ever going back, despite the fact that the rest of the experience was great. One irony is that this reservation was not even eligible for OpenTable points. Despite this, I would probably recommend the place to a friend, but with some misgivings.
Thank you. Everything was great
Amazing food and wonderful service! A new favorite spot for sure. Literally amazing... With gratitude!
The food is so fresh and delicious that you won’t mind the noise level. The service was outstanding. Snapper was one of the best pieces of fish I ever had - just plain grilled, just delicious. Delicata squash side dish was heavenly. Warm cookie a la mode was worth every calorie.
I always love coming here. Server was super nice, as were the bussers. One of the best oyster happy hours in the city. Also: the fried fish sliders are PHENOMENAL. Great selection of wine and cocktails. Comfy seating with plenty of space and attentive service. Always down to return!
Nice fresh oysters and fresh fish
Went on a Sunday night, so perhaps the food was not as fresh as usual. But the shrimp in the shrimp cocktail were absolutely tasteless. My friend ordered tartare which was brought to her without any bread--not even a cracker. We both got barramundi for the main course. It was tasty, but nothing special. Servers were pleasant and accommodating but the service seems scattered. For example, we both ordered cold appetizers-so why was one brought right away and we had to ask for the other before it came out?
I highly recommend Crave. Reservation process, ambiance, service, food presentation were all top notch. I’m looking forward to going back.
Possibly the best seafood I've ever had. Everything was incredibly fresh, well portioned, and well seasoned.
Hits and if I'm paying upper 20's to upper 30's for food, I don't imagine cramped booth seating. In any case, we had oysters during the happy hour and those were delightful! Really fresh! As for the main entree, out of the 4, only 1 could be rated as GREAT - the seared yellowfin tuna. All the ingredients went well to make the dish a winner. The cavatelli I just couldn't enjoy it because of the aforementioned reasons. So to sum it all, I feel the overall experience at this restaurant would prevent me from returning or recommending this place.
Great as always!!!
Found and booked thru OpenTable
Although it was Valentines Day eve and needed a table in 15 minutes got confirmation and when we arrived, we were showed to the table within 3 minutes, although there were few people waiting and were ahead of us.
Chose the place using distance, cusine, reviews, and availability criteria.
The food was absolutely gourmet - we loved it!!!
Everyone was very sweet and checked on us constantly. Only issue was our reservation got pushed back 15 minutes
We went for valentines dinner. The portion size was very small for the price. Left restaurant still hungry and had to stop to eat somewhere else afterwards. Food quality was acceptable.
My wife and I don’t get to go out for a nice dinner too often as our little guy keeps us so busy!
We’ve gone to this location twice and both times were amazing too to bottom. The service was excellent, the food was to die for, and the oyster happy hour can’t be beat!
Will absolutely be going back for our next date night. It’s now tradition!!
Thank you everyone for making our special dinners so special.
The restaurant is lovely and spacious. The food was fresh and very well prepared. The staff was friendly and professional. I have absolutely no complaints and look forward to my next visit here.
Went with the family (including grandkids) for oyster happy hour and dinner. Great selection, taste and value. Wonderful lobster curry and seafood stew. We will return again and again.
Delicious having it all mixed in would have been too much. Delicious otherwise. Tuna was magnificent, as were the apps -- pork belly and octopus.
The atmosphere is outstanding. We had a table upstairs by the raw bar. Love the decor. Food and wait staff were excellent. We will recommend to others and will be back.
As always, great dinner at Crave. All the appetizers were terrific and mains were great as well. Very dependable and creative dishes make for a fun dinner.
Food was great. Staff were great! I would recommend this restaurant to a friend. I’d go back.
Good seafood products with innovative but simple servings!
delicious, creatively cool menu and atmosphere!! strongly recommended
Very good restaurant with very good food. A bit pricey, but reasonable.
The quality and freshness of the seafood here is exceptional -- especially the west coast oysters. The preparations are simple and elegant, always highlighting the subtle flavors of the sea and never overwhelming them. It's expensive, but it's worth it.
I love this place - I would go everyday if I could. I typically go here solo, and they’re always so welcoming and helpful!
Had an absolutely fabulous time. Carlos and Ben could not have been nicer, more gracious or welcoming. The food was excellent and the service even better. Can’t recommend this place enough.
Great causal atmosphere but feels upscale. If you like great seafood this is the place to be.
Crave Fishbar is one of the best places to go for oysters and impeccably prepared fresh fish. the host and staff are friendly and helpful. we love the atmosphere and energy of this restaurant.
Great food, service, last minute reservation.
I was on a business trip and they seated me in a corner by the window so I can watch NY while enjoying a glass of wine. Food was delicious. They partnered with Monterey Bay Aquarium for sustainable fishing - this is BONUS for me. Weekday dining was mellow and quiet which is what I needed after a busy day. Will definitely come back to try other items on their menu
