My favorite thing about this restaurant is that not only is the food delicious, it is also FUN! Really creative dishes - I like to order a bunch of things and share them with my dinner companion - more varieties of deliciousness
Don't ever come here...it's a secret! This place is fantastic. So glad they're open again on the UWS. Staff is phenomenal, food is outstanding. The oysters are some of the best I've had.
Great to return to Crave Fishbar -- better than ever!
Calamari was stellar. Barramundi was cooked perfectly.
Overall good food but service was slow and shrimp cocktail seemed undercooked. Barramundi was a standout.
Good food, good vibe. Expensive for what you get but...
Great happy hour deals, but service was suspiciously slow. 30 +mins wait time for a dozen oysters. It took a lot less time for me to receive the same dish a few weeks ago at peak dinner time when the restaurant was a lot busier and the oysters were $1 more per oyster. I suspect they’re trying to limit the number of oysters anyone can order during happy hour.
Our favorite go to in the city - wonderful drinks & dishes! The Oyster Bar is incredible! Crave Fishbar never disappoints!
Amazing staff, and amazing food. I definitely recommend this UWS restaurant ❤️❤️❤️
I had the squid ink spaghetti and my buddy had the lobster curry. Both dishes were amazing. The service was friendly and as accommodating as you could ask for. Crave Fishbar is consistently a great choice.
Absolutely a neighborhood go to place. The staff is delightful and appreciative to see us return. These folks both management and staff are in sync and fantastic.
The service was great and the food was amazing.
All amazing oysters. Thanks so much as always tasty and ice cold beers. Live close and we are regulars!
Cute place with impeccable food. That was the best seafood I’ve had in a long time and will 1000% be back soon. Don’t leave without trying their calamari!
The squid ink dish was not as good as previous years, lacking enough seasoning and the sauce was too watery. The restaurant is way too noisy for conversation to be comfortable. I was disappointed this first time back.
Great oysters and seafood. The tuna tostadas are excellent! So glad they are back option the UWS!
Great brunch. Good oyster special. Nice cocktails. Always reliably good overall!
Excellent staff, willing to assist in any way to make us feel comfortable. Food was excellent from presentation, taste/flavors/textures to value. Very creative dishes which captivated the visuals and the palette. Highly recommend this casual spot for a pleasant, tasty meal with friends. Great ambience.
Noise level in this restaurant is intolerable and uncomfortable
Excellent dinner. So very glad to have the restaurant back open.
Very loud, a bit too much for us senior citizens, but we’ll be back.
We popped in for some oysters, showed our Billion Oyster Project card also, then the manager thoughtfully came by to thank us for our support of the Billion Oyster Project (which are oysters that are never served in restaurants but have been implemented to clean NYC harbor so that actual sea life has returned to it). We got our usual Blue Points but also what our server recommended and those were actually even better. The staff was attentive and lovely, and the food and Champagne were great.
Great location. Good ambience but there was a huge con. Went w a friend for Happy Hour as we were craving oysters. We arrived about 25 min before it ended. Going in we both knew one of us wanted a dozen and a half oysters and the other wanted a dozen. This was going to be our main purchase so we were VERY frustrated to find out you could only receive a dozen at a time. The waitress Indicated she could not put in a new order until the initial dozen arrived at the table. With the window fast closing & a busy restaurant, the stress we experienced waiting for that first order and then having to wait two more times before the remaining order could go through was ridiculous. To top it off, the oysters were pretty sandy. it was not the best dining experience. Sadly won’t be going back.
The oysters and littlenecks were served well after the entree. Expected better serve since I was the first and only customer.
Never disappoints, great food and service!
Dinner was perfect.
The food was super fresh and flavorful! Watermelon margarita was spot on!
Our weekly treat of fresh oysters, crispy fish tacos, tuna tostadas, and burger sliders (if you get there during happy hour),… love this place
At long last Crave UWS has reopened, and even better than its pre-Covid gestalt
Everyone enjoyed their dish - from the fish tacos to the barramundi. Cocktails and drinks also excellent. Service wonderful.
Perfect in every way.
So happy the UWS location reopened. Always good food and service.
Great to see this place open again. Always reliable and always good vibe.
Decent food but overpriced for just decent food. Extremely loud room. Poor service, you’ll need binoculars to find your server.
Awesome food, especially the oysters and oyster shooters. But our server happened to be absent and rude. The rest of the staff was very nice and a busser even connected with my young son and got him "special" ice cream. Would love to come back, just not in that server's section.
Super friendly staff and delicious food, gets busy so a little noisier than most restaurants
Excellent service by Emily. Excellent food!
Great food - love the GF options!!!!
Food is always great glad they reopened recently.
Overall it was really good. Food was delicious. The waitstaff was very attentive and nice. The only thing that was disappointing was I specifically booked a reservation for an outdoor table but when we got there the hostess said the outdoor seating was first come first served even if I made a reservation online for it.
Been to UES location which was very good but the same lobster roll at the UWS location was not so good - chewy lobster, scanty filling mostly bread and two pieces of lobster shell in my roll
