Seafood
At Crave Fishbar, we source and serve locally caught seafood in a sophisticated yet fun environment. We are a sustainable, eco-conscious restaurant, 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 were the first NYC partner with the Monterey Bay Aquarium, a national leader in ocean sustainability and charter members of the James Beard Foundation's Smart Catch Program.We are the home of #oystergram happy hour where we offer $1 oysters along with a selection of 16-18 bivavles from east and west coast from 5-7 weekdays and 4-6pm on weekends. Seasonal Craft cocktails and local beers along with wines on tap lend to the festive yet curated beverage experience.

We've been coming here since Crave opened on the UWS and have never had anything other than a divine experience.

A good seafood place in an area lacking chic dinner spots.

PLEASE STOP to send Latinos and African-American costumers to the back of your empty restaurant. This is extremely disrespectful, specially for a place that has almost no diversity at the client facing positions. The food was below average to mediocre, the service was slow and they couldn't care less about who was inside the restaurant. Horrible experience.

Claims that we seat our restaurant based on race are hurtful & completely unfounded. The back of the space is often seated first because it accommodates larger parties & has booths & low tables, which are the most requested. If we actually did what you claimed (including our staffing), not only would the owners have to come up with the idea, the entire staff including managers would have to be complacent. In the most diverse city in the world, this would be a ludicrous way to run a business.

Things were good once we sat down, but this wasn’t until a half hour after our reservation time and 50 minutes after the first 2 of our party of 4 arrived. They kept blaming it on a party that wouldn’t get up, who knows. They should have comped our bar drinks at that point but we don’t like to make too big of a fuss. Ultimately they brought out an unsolicited comp dessert (which added a star to the review) at the end of the meal. Hard to give a good review to a restaurant that can’t honor reservations and does the bare minimum for service recovery.

First time here and I love your place. Nice space inside, very welcoming and accomodating. Nice beer selection. Great happy hour. The portions are a little on the smaller side for me, but tasty. Will be back!

We sat outside on a beautiful afternoon, and just had oysters and wine. The server was great - we let him select the oysters, and they were so delicious. Great happy hour, great location...highly recommend!

Crave Fishbar UWS -- always yummy. If you're seeking a quiet-ish time, Sunday evening at about 8:00pm is probably a good bet.

Great oysters esp great during the happy hour, though most were $1.50 rather than $1. Recommended muscadet was excellent with the oysters. Steak frites were only fair. Fries could use a lot more work as they were soggy and mushy.

always consistent. always busy. always loud but in a good way. The service is friendly and efficient and our server let us sit for quite a while on a Saturday night. The food is very high quality and the portions are a nice size for reasonable prices. Glad Crave is in our neighborhood.

Met my brother for dinner a week after having discovered Crave with a friend. Again took advantage of the Happy Hour oyster special. Repeated the delicious cauliflower soup. Everything we ordered after was beautifully prepared and presented. We sat outside on a very pleasant evening. Crave is an easy walk from my apartment, so I am likely to be there often.

Food was good but not great.
Same with service.

The food was excellent but the service was outstanding! Our son was celebrating his birthday and he loves seafood. Lobster, scallops, oysters are all his favorites. And he’s 6 😜 Crave’s staff couldn’t have been more attentive to him and by doing so, won us over as loyal customers. We will definitely be back!!

The food was fine, but the service was terrible. Our waitress ignored us and sent us the wrong dishes multiple times—some of the wrong items she sent us contained sesame even though I explicitly told her I was severely allergic. This was a bad dining experience for the price point, and it was not a busy night.

We just love Crave Fishbar, and particularly, the happy hours, where endless oysters of all varieties are only $1 each. Seriously, this is true. The wait staff is always super professional, and the other menu items are equally delicious, clean, and healthy. Above all, the combination of flavors is always a joy.
