Very good choice for raw bar on the upper west side. Although, I would not say that the snow crab legs are a good value. On the other hand, the west coast oysters, during happy hour, are an excellent value.
Happy hour oysters are EVERYTHING!!
We have returned here, time and time again and have never been less than very happy.
Outstanding service. Tasty OYSTERS!!!! Quality cocktails. Good food though my tuna was not so special. The lobster curry and other fish ordered by our party were very good. But KUSSI oysters are fabulous as all westerners know. And they had a lot of them as we had 2 dozen during oyster happy hour!!!! If nothing else, GO for the happy hour and feast on fresh oysters.
Food was just bland
Mussels no taste
Veggies too wet
Great hidden gem on the UWS.
When I can get away and dine during their ‘happy hour’ from 5-7 weekdays or 4-6 on weekends, I’m never disappointed. Unlike other restaurants whose happy hour oysters are of the restaurant’s choice, Crave Fish Bar allows you to chose from their entire selection of oysters at happy hour prices. That’s a gift!
Friendly wait staff- excellent seafood and comfortable ambiance. It’s really happy hour- not unhappy hour!
Crave is a favorite of ours! We were excited to eat outside and enjoy the nice weather.
We love this restaurant and have been there many times. This past Saturday for the first time the service was not good. When we asked the waitress why our appetizers didn't arrive at the same time she responded dismissively that this is the way we do it here. When we told her that we've been here before and that hasn't been the case she basically blew us off. A simple apology would have gone a long way. In fact our guests responded, "I guess we weren't going to win that argument with her!"
This was our first time at this restaurant and overall we enjoyed it. We went to the Upper West location. The food was great with interesting approaches to dishes. The calamari, grilled octopus and shrimp cocktail were fantastic appetizers. For entree's we had the squid ink pasta, salmon, tuna and the incredible lobster curry. Interesting cocktail menu, nice location and interior with just enough noise but not so much you couldn't have a conversation. The service was the only let down, really disappointing. We had an app come out 15 mins after the others, and a side dish that was delivered about halfway through the entrees. Mistakes happen but our server seemed to care less and initially had a hard time providing us descriptions of some of the dishes or wine selections. At this price point I expect a little more. Would I go back again, absolutely, the food was great and that lobster curry dish was a bowl full of spicy greatness.
The bartender was friendly and attentive. The food was fresh and full of flavor. The cauliflower soup was out of this world and the Bloody Mary was the best mix of spice without over powering! Definitely a place to put on your brunch bucket list!
Great happy hour!!! Great service. Loud venue. Brussels sprouts are fantastic.
Happy hour oysters is a very good deal. Used to better when oysters were $1.00 each, but $1.50 each is still quite good.
always love this restaurant. great service and great food and great value
Food was excellent, was very noisy
Consistently delicious. Great menu. Love!
Nice atmosphere and good service. Food was just ok. Pricey for mediocre food. This was my second visit and after having a similar experience, I won’t rush back for dinner. Would consider visiting for happy hour.
Salmon Sashimi Tostadas and Calamari appetizers were excellent!
Great food and lovely staff. We really enjoyed the happy hour and our servers were very efficient and friendly.
Some of the freshest, most reliable seafood in town. The oysters never fail, the appetizers are some of my favorite (tuna poke, calamari). For a main: the lobster curry is always foolproof and stunning. I oscillate on some of the main fish dishes, but I have never been disappointed coming here, even for a birthday. Please bring back the "good life"! And make sure the new version, if it differs, is strong...
I put Special occasion as it’s really special. The food is as good as you can get in NYC. Hands down special, nothing to dispute. Delicious, clean, creative yet simple, every bite is wonderful. Pricey but totally worth it. DH and I often share apps and entree here. My only hesitation is that since I go around once every two weeks can I still say it’s for a special occasion?
Yep! I can.
Great food for a night out with friends.
Seven of us —-some family, some new friends—-shared a fabulous meal which we all enjoyed tremendously and where we could actually hear one another in spite of being in a happy, lively room.
We each had the whole branzino which was outstanding
Went for brunch with our kids. Food and service were both very good for us and the kids.
My husband and I live close and this was the first time having brunch at Crave Fishbar. The food was delicious and the service was great! Also had a great brunch deal! I would reccommwbd this place to my friends. It was casual and had a nice setting. We will be coming back soon!
To be fair I only had two appys when I was there. The Salmon Tosada tried to be too many things and the chilli oil was laddled on and over powering. The Fish taco "fish" was moist and good tasting but again too mcuh cabbage and not enough sauce made it sort of tasteless. The cocktail was very good and the place is cute. The staff is friendly and warm but seemed a little consfused at times. I would go back and try a fish main as I think that is most likely where their talents lie because the fish in both dishes were the best part.
Great oysters. Rest of happy hour foodoptions are mediocre. Avoid the sea bass sashimi.
The staff are very welcoming and the service is great. We enjoyed the tacos very much but thought the Branzino was a bit of a mess for $36. It should really have come filleted for that price. We just didn’t want to fight for our food to that extent. That said, it was tasty and the kale on the side was nicely prepared.
Every dish was delicious The staff was pleasant, fast and informed of the menu
First time visiting this restaurant, but won't be my last.
Good fish prepared in interesting ways. Nice service. Space is a bit crowded and noisy but nice energy. .
The food is always great. But the service has been consistently bad the last 4 times I’ve been here - at both the UES and the UWS locations.
Crave is such a delicious spot. I had the salmon tostadas and the kale dinosaur salad, both of which were excellent. It's a little pricey, but definitely worth it. The service is also great - I'm on crutches right now and they seated me at a very convenient table in a corner so I would be as comfortable as possible. Highly recommend!
Crave Fishbar has a great Happy Hour for oyster lovers. All oysters are available for HH many are $1 each. Food was great. I especially enjoyed the ceviche. Nice friendly crowd. Fun place to meet with friends
Satisfying in every way, except perhaps a little too noisy.
Wonderful food, friendly, expert service. Had the calamari and also salmon. Definitely our new favorite seafood place on UWS.
Excellent craft cocktails, extensive wine list, reliable raw bar offerings, impeccable fish entrees, and creative desserts. What more can you ask for?!
Good casual place, outstanding oysters and superb grilled fish
Super fun happy hour!
excellent food and service. Get a table away from the door if you "crave" some quiet.
Our first time here. We love this place! Food preparation and presentation where top notch and interesting, our server was extremely well-informed, and cocktails are also excellent.
