I'm always happy when I go to Crave- the food is wonderful and the staff make you feel at home.
Excellent seafood, nice atmosphere, honest wine prices but a little spicy
Service not so good: food fabulous!!!!
Good food, excellent service. Highly recommend.
Great food and service! Will definitely come back
Awful service. I had to keep chasing down the server to put orders in. Rest was ok. House drinks were good but other cocktails were so so.
Great happy hour that really adds up to a very large bill but still enjoyed the food. Great selection of oysters and fish. Will be back.
Am glad to see this location is back open! It's been almost 2 years since we last dined here. Partner and I were missing this place and stopped by yesterday for happy hour (daily 4p-6p...call to verify about weekend happy hours). We ended up ordering a dozen bluepoints 3x. At $1.50, that's not bad! Partner had a moscow mule and I had 3 estrella jaliscos. We rounded those off with the sea bass crudo, tuna tostada, fried calamari and french fries. The crudo was dressed with ponzu and sliced serrano peppers...a nice and light side dish! The tostadas brought together tuna, hummus, chimichurri and crispy shallots into one great bite and perfectly complimented the raw dishes. The fried calamari was accompanied by mung bean sprouts and some greens dressed with a thai miso and sprinkled with some chili powder...this is one of our favorites! Their french fries are like steak fries and are very satisfying. Glad to see all the same dishes are available and are made with the same consistency! Service was attentive as always! The oysters are always fresh and are the stars of the show! Sorry for the dark pics...we were sitting in the back room.
The server came by two times the entire time we were there. Disappointing service
Always a fun brunch for lunch and the drink like a fish unlimited beverages was pretty amazing.
Extremely poor experience!. Food it itself is so average!. No balance in the testings: guacamole takes over lobster. Hot sauce takes over fish.
Service is very disappointing. The « welcome desk » person is extremely rude, and has absolutely no empathy. A shame when your role is to welcome….
Last time they will see me, and absolutely not to recommend
Lobster roll was mainly avocado with small pieces of
lobster. Rip off.
A fish was ordered, so salty it was uneatable & also
so undercooked, it was slimy.
pretty average food. good service though
remember it being a lot better the last time i went
Brunch was amazing. Great fish and drinks
Excellent food, wine and wait staff
Great selection of oysters. Flexible small and main plate options. One our very favorites.
Everything was fine and very taste
Food was delicious. Happy hour is such a great deal. Staff was wonderful. Very cute interior
Our waiter was just lovely..... The Tostadas with the surprising and interesting, ever so slight hint of mint and lightly battered Calamari appetizers were OUTSTANDING. I will definitely get those again. Yumm. The Faroe salmon was superbly prepared and we all three couldn't have been happier! The Pure Luyck gin cocktail was so good I had 2 and I never have two. We vowed to bring our 4th back with us next time! If you haven't tried this place, do your taste buds a "flavor" and GO!
I always LOVE being at Crave for Oyster HH and this was great. The oysters were exceptional and her waitress was fantastic! Very knowledgeable about the wine especially! Really my favorite place
Great reopen. Food and service even better.
Great happy hour with delicious oysters. Yummy cocktails and great atmosphere with friendly staff.
Octopus and it's accompanying salad wonderful as was the Thai lobster curry. So flavorful with spice tang and crunchy rice fab.. Our silver haired julliard grad a great guy.
Great food and ambience! Went here for a date and it wasn't too loud which was nice (we were seated in the back) and the cauliflower soup was outstanding!!!
Food was good. Service was fine. Place was a bit noisy.
Crave is one of our neighborhood favorites. The Oyster gram happy hour is hard to beat for deliciousness and price. Food here is delicious, the service is great and overall it's a lovely space that is not too loud.
Food was amazing. Had the tuna tostadas and the lobster curry … flavors in both were perfect. Significant portions too for a lobster dish! Takes a lot to fill me up, but they did it.
Recommend the St Simon oysters.
Food was excellent. Server was not very attentive and then disappeared for 30 minutes at the end of our meal.
happy this restaurant is back for good quality dining on the upper west side. Glad to support them again.
We had great oysters and calamari
Thoroughly enjoyed. Super fresh, delicious, well prepared food with great flavor!
Cauliflower soup delicious, fish tacos dry(we have had in the past and they were yummy, we tried to flag waiter for more sauce, no luck. Although we should all be forgiving g COVID times . :)
Excellent all around service, professional and friendly. The food is consistently very good. It's a go to place.
Hands down my fave spot!
Great calamari and gluten-free!
Food was fantastic. They do fish and they do it very well.
Dessert menu was limited but still very tasty.
Given I love fish, I am going to become a regular here. Deep menu. Lots to try each time!
For the most part we had a very enjoyable experience on a recent Friday evening. The salmon entre is excellent with perfectly grilled fish and a nice accompaniment of faro and cauliflower. The oyster selection is extensive and our choices were very fresh and delicious. The spicy Montauk Chopped Scallop Roll was forgettable, not something we would recommend.
Service was first rate.
Alcohol choices were plentiful and there are some very enjoyable cocktails.
Ambiance is casual and relaxed. We felt very comfortable. Only downside was we were sat at a booth in the bar area right beneath one of the speakers. Though the music was enjoyable enough, it not what we expected when we made the reservation. Also the footrest had become unhinged leaving our feet to dangle from the stools upon which we were sitting. All in all it was an enjoyable evening, and we will return. Just a few sticking points keep us from saying our visit was a five.
Barramundi Asian sea bass was outstanding for freshness & flavor.
Everything met our expectations. The food and service were exemplary. Nicole and the entire staff did a phenomenal job. We look forward to returning and perhaps sitting inside which looks very nice.
