It was very cold and every time the front door opened it was get thought out the restaurant. A external double door cold entrance would make a huge difference. Food. Service. Price - all fantastic

We ate outdoors and it was very nice. The interior of the restaurant is gorgeous and I hope to eat there post-Covid. The food was amazing. I had the tuna tostado which was delicious and we both had the salmon dish which was perfectly cooked along with the sides it came with. The cocktails were different and yummy. I will definitely be back!!!

Had a wonderful brunch today. From the moment we arrived until we left they treated us like special guests. The yellowfin tuna tostadas, fish tacos and seafood omelette all were delicious. Can’t wait to visit again.

I can never say enough wonderful things about Crave UWS!! For the past several years -except last year of course- we have loved our early New Years celebration with oyster happy hour! Good friends joined this year. We had a lovely socially distanced booth in the back and it was great. Their oysters and the selection can’t be beat! Great wine great waiter!! Great start to 2023

We went early in hopes of starting early as we had theatre tickets. They were so accommodating
The service was outstanding. The octopus and barramundi were so wonderful. How can they make food taste so goo

This was my first visit to Crave Fishbar, and it won't be my last. The food was exceptional, and the cocktail was amazing. Not a very extensive menu, but I guess that they specialize in a few things and do them very well. I would highly recommend.

Am glad to see this location is back open! It's been almost 2 years since we last dined here. Partner and I were missing this place and stopped by yesterday for happy hour (daily 4p-6p...call to verify about weekend happy hours). We ended up ordering a dozen bluepoints 3x. At $1.50, that's not bad! Partner had a moscow mule and I had 3 estrella jaliscos. We rounded those off with the sea bass crudo, tuna tostada, fried calamari and french fries. The crudo was dressed with ponzu and sliced serrano peppers...a nice and light side dish! The tostadas brought together tuna, hummus, chimichurri and crispy shallots into one great bite and perfectly complimented the raw dishes. The fried calamari was accompanied by mung bean sprouts and some greens dressed with a thai miso and sprinkled with some chili powder...this is one of our favorites! Their french fries are like steak fries and are very satisfying. Glad to see all the same dishes are available and are made with the same consistency! Service was attentive as always! The oysters are always fresh and are the stars of the show! Sorry for the dark pics...we were sitting in the back room.

Extremely poor experience!. Food it itself is so average!. No balance in the testings: guacamole takes over lobster. Hot sauce takes over fish.
Service is very disappointing. The « welcome desk » person is extremely rude, and has absolutely no empathy. A shame when your role is to welcome….
Last time they will see me, and absolutely not to recommend

Lobster roll was mainly avocado with small pieces of
lobster. Rip off.
A fish was ordered, so salty it was uneatable & also
so undercooked, it was slimy.
