Seafood
At Crave Fishbar, we source and serve locally caught seafood in a sophisticated yet fun environment. We are a sustainable, eco-conscious restaurant and bar, using seasonal, organic when possible, ingredients that reflect our commitment to the environment and, especially, marine life. Our relationships with Long Island fishermen have been nurtured and supported through our sister restaurant, South Edison, in Montauk, NY and we are the only NYC partner with the Monterey Bay Aquarium, a national leader in ocean sustainability.
We are the home of #oystergram happy hour where every single east and west coast oyster is $1 each from 5-7pm M-F and weekends 4-6pm. Craft cocktails and beers along with wines on tap lend to the festive yet curated beverage experience. The wine list comprises of mostly esoteric wines that deliver at a great value.
All desserts and breads are made in house daily.

Disappointing. We went to Crave Fishbar for a birthday dinner based upon the good reviews from Open Table. The small piece of salmon came out partially cooked. While that was returned to the kitchen, the vegetables were left on the table to get cold. The $30+ filet mignon was small and tough. Our waitress was fine but had too many tables. However, the birthday dessert was lovely. (I had eaten at Crave Fishbar on the UES several years ago and it was a good experience. This was not.)

4-6pm raw bar happy hour is worth every cent for $1 oysters! 1/2 dozen littleneck clams and East Dennis oysters were the highlights.

Dinner service starts at 4:30pm.

Our waiter sent out the wrong appetizer but happily replaced it with the correct order at no extra charge.

Great service and friendly staff, casual environment, and kid friendly restaurant. Very accommodating and would definitely return.

Nothing special. Nice atmosphere but an obvious menu and average, fairly bland food. You can cook a better meal at home.

Went for New Years eve dinner and was very disappointed after reading many good reviews. Food was mediocre. Dinner for 2 with drinks was almost $400, would have enjoyed 2 slices of good pizza more and would have saved a bundle.

Usually reliable but one main dish was undercooked. The manager told me that was how it was supposed to be but he was wrong. When it went back to be redone it came back uneven and tough. As always the one dollar oysters were the highlight of the evening.

We had a great experience at Crave. The waiter could not have been any nicer or more accommodating.
The food was really tasty and the portions a decent size. We were a party of four. Three had fish as a main, one had pasta. All were great.
I highly recommend !

I've been here several times for oyster happy hour. Normally, my only complaint is with the speed the oysters come out. That was not an issue this time -- they come out very quickly. I'll be going back.
