We were there for the oyster happy hour. Great selection on the oysters and the wine! Lovely service, and the salmon tostados were out of this world. I also appreciate the gluten free calamari.

Happy Hour "Oystergram" is a terrific experience. Unlike other oyster-deal-destinations, Crave offers you their entire roster of 15-20 West and East Coast oysters to mix and match. The Happy Hour cocktails are creative and delicious, our favorite being the Bloody Mary with a jumbo shrimp resting on top. French fries are to die for and go perfectly with a few dozen oysters. The service can get a bit slow, but that's because the oysters are shucked fresh, one by one, and the noise level is typical of pretty much any New York City restaurant designed by and for millennials. Make reservations for Happy Hour a week in advance because the slots fill up.

Shared a couple of appetizers plus. For me, the food was okay but overpriced. My main complaint concerns our waiter who was barely helpful, offered little guidance when asked, and was particularly dour. Surprising how much that affected my dining experience.

Food was amazing. We had someone who is gluten free and there were many many options for her. She also said it was the best calamari she ever had. What a great time with delicious food!

Overall, it was good. As a birthday dinner, we sprung for a fairly expensive meal. The food was inventive and delicious. The pricing was too high for the service and food. If time and money are no issue, try it.

We went to Crave to celebrate my husband’s birthday. It was our first visit and if was great! We had oysters, tuna, lobster in curry and the food was excellent. Service was fantastic. My only minor complaint was that Open Table asks for the reason for visiting when you make the reservation. I put down that it was for a birthday but there was no acknowledgement from the restaurant about it. But, this is certainly a place we will visit again!!

The Happy Hour oysters are the best in NYC! Their small plates are perfect to go with HH drinks. Dinner here uses the freshest fish & the options are great!

We dine here somewhat regularly - either alone or with out of town guests. The service is always excellent and we've never been disappointed with our meal. The Oyster happy hour is an exceptional value. A neighborhood favorite and a place we're sure to visit numerous times in the year ahead.

I never leave a bad review! This isn’t a bad review per say but there were some issues with the kitchen. My crab claws came out and were either not completely thawed out or had freezer burn, couldn’t eat them. Service and management was great, took it off the bill and also comp’d us dessert. I had asked for everything to be packed up and for one of the dishes to leave off the smoked salmon garnish... and the next day when I went to eat it, they packed the garnish, and left out the actual dish. Bizarre. Just an off night I guess. Really cute place, half of our food was really good and the other half just okay besides the crab claws that we couldn’t eat obviously. Reasonably priced also.

Out to dinner with old friends. Food is delicious, as are mixed drinks, and service is informal (actors waiting for a role?) but efficient and friendly. I rated the noise level as energetic, but we were able to converse comfortably although three of our party qualified as seniors. I went there once for brunch during the summer and it was serene and fairly quiet. I'm a regular at the east side Crave which has a slightly different menu, but is more crowded-feeling. All in all, Crave is a real treat for a not crazy price.

We had friends in from Spain and chose this restaurant to celebrate one of their birthdays.

The table for the four of us was perfectly situated upstairs in the dining room. The service was attentive but not intrusive. The food was outstanding. Oysters were a perfect start to our meal and the entrees as well as the desserts didn’t disappoint..
