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.

Great food - the best oysters ever, and wonderful mussels.
Great service - Our super server recommended the perfect oysters to suit our tastes.
Lovely atmosphere ,choice of indoor and outdoor seating, like eating in Martha's Vineyard.

The happy hour is amazing. Fresh and delicious oysters with an excellent service.
I was able to book a table an hour in advance, but after a while the restaurant was packed. So anticipate that.

Service needs to step it up. Paying top dollar demands top service. Needed to be a little more attentive and smiles, everyone, smiles.

Being told after you order that it will take 20-25 minutes to get your order of oysters from the raw bar makes no sense. You have 2 people and they can’t shuck oysters faster than that? (Although it was well worth the wait).

Drinks were under poured and therefore over priced. Order a bottle of wine instead of by the glass. Always more economical, but at Crave, a real necessity.

Overall experience was great and the food was outstanding. Would definitely go back.

We started with Oysters and ended with fabulous desserts! Two of us had the Cod and thought it might be the best Cod they had ever had, the way it was cooked was outstanding along with the broth it was served in. I had the Barramundi and it was delicious and cooked to perfection!

Our party of three were all first-timers at Crave and we will be back We split the calamari and crab roll (the latter from the happy hour special menu)... both were fabulous although we all agreed the buttery toasted roll made the crab roll even more decadent. Yellowfin tuna and cavatelli pasta mains were outstanding; the fish taco dish was the only non-standout. People at a nearby table ordered barramundi; we will definitely try that upon our return. Service was attentive; we advised them at the outset we were headed to a show and they managed to our desired departure time.

I recommend Crave with the understanding that noise can overwhelm all its great qualities, The bar is a sure bet, lots of buzz great value, excellent service. Folks come and go, eating the excellent oysters and you have a great half an hour. Sitting at a table for a full meal, absorbing the excessive nose level makes for a lesser experience.

Got there at 6:00 and ordered drinks and oysters to start. We didn’t get our oysters until well after 7. I ordered the cauliflower soup and my husband ordered the spicy spaghetti. Both had to be sent back to the kitchen because of the incredible saltiness. The waiter brought us the same dishes with apologies from the chef. Getting a waiter to get a glass of water was next to impossible without standing and waving. Don’t k kw what the problem was but it certainly was Not the pleasant relaxing evening diner out that we wanted.

Loved the experience, wanted an amazing seafood dinner on the UWS and that's what we got! Would definitely recommend and return. I liked the food, but felt as if it was under-seasoned. The cheesy cauliflower needed salt/pepper and the kale salad needed a little more dressing or drizzle of lemon. We ordered fish tacos for the table and were warned that it was a bit spicy. We found the sauce to be, but the fish to be under-seasoned. as well. The branzino was delicious--found quite a few bones. Chocolate chip cookie dessert was delicious. Service was excellent and bathrooms were clean.

I love this restaurant. This is my third visit and I am sure I will return. Fish is always fresh and beautifully prepared. Service is attentive without being in your face. I like dishes that showcase the actual fish rather than drowning it out and Crave does this really well. We started with a seafood tower, Delish! And of course the octopus because I can't have a seafood meal without it. Two of us had the barramundi and one had the fish tacos. All were perfectly cooked and we didn't leave a single crumb. We finished off with two scoops of sorbet and a scoop of toasted marshmallow ice cream, all a perfect way to cool our palates. Thank-you Crave for a flawless meal.

I LOVE Crave UWS! Went for brunch with my sister - Saturday of a holiday weekend so was really quiet but good as always. They do shuckers choice for the $1 oyster offering at brunch and the point lookouts were small but delicious. A lovely bottle of prosecco - a great afternoon.
Service is constantly wonderful. Love it!

My only disappointment is that I made a reservation for 6:30 thinking I'd make the Happy Hour, then arrived only to find that on Sundays it ends at 6 and not 7. How is a person to know these things. Is it posted on your website? If so, I missed it.
