I love The Boil! Both locations have amazing staff & the food is DELICIOUS.
Everything about The Boil was fine. It's not elegant, but it gets the job done, and well. The food (Lobsters, notably) was fresh enough. As other reviews have noted, their delivery system seems a bit eccentric by NYC standards (a lobster in a bag; you're given a bib and plastic gloves; paper "plates" and plastic utensils, but also a read made-of-metal cracker for the lobster), but it cleans up quickly enough. Word of advice: you might want to order something like lobster "dry"... Service was appropriately attentive. Also note that they do not accept credit cards and they add 20% for a "hospitality charge", which I assume(d) IS the "tip". Once you determine to just go with all this, the eating experience is pleasant enough...
They used to have good food but it got worse.
The crabs were dry and they charge you 25-35% more than before.
I wont come again.
Absolutely fantastic food, and excellent service from staff!
Horrible they didn’t have king crab legs .
Nice corner, delicious food, fast and friendly service. Was noisy but overall was good
Excellent. Saveur et rapport qualité prix parfait. Une très bonne adresse
Our first waitress was very inattentive and very unhelpful.
It’s cozy can be done as a date night or with friends , food is consistent
Cash Only but 20% TIP added and they charge the NYS tax on top off the gratuity which I believe is not legal?
Food is great but a tad salty.
We had the Lobster &Shrimp combo and Shrimp&Crawfish combo.
Good quality and great portions!
We were stuffed.
Had a wonderful time and the music was excellent. Good food
Portions really are designed for single servings. Not enough to share. Food was very tasty. Love the garlic bread. Time between serving appetizers and main dish was a little long. I would go again.
Food and service was great as always! They do thorough checks for vaccinations at the door so it feels good to know I’m going to a place that prioritizes safety.
Great staff! Great vibe! Amazing food! First time there and definitely not the last!!!
The staff is always organized from the moment you walk in and expect to be seated until the end of your dining experience. They all seem to work well together to make sure you receive each portion of your meal in a timely manner. Lastly, I must say that the quality of the food is excellent and always consistent.
I would recommend this place to any seafood lover. The place was so perfect for my girlfriend’s birthday party!
We were a party of 6 celebrating my husband's birthday at The Boil.
The positive-the seafood was tasty and the price was moderate, the Manager removed the uncooked chicken from the bill and waived some drinks.
The negative-the food took over 40 minutes to arrive, my niece's chicken was raw and not edible, they provide small paper plates (which makes it difficult to eat a large crab leg or lobster and basic plastic knives and forks (not even the upgrade hardy quality) which for this price point is not acceptable. The restaurant also has the most aggressive cancellation policy(with $15 dollar penalties per person if you fail to show up or cancel less than 24 hours...really???) I have never seen any cancellation policy like this having lived in NYC for over 35 years! They also require payment in "cash". I would only recommend for the seafood.
Totalmente delicioso!!! Disfrutamos muchisimo la comida!!
Food and services was amazing!!! 11/10 ☺️
They were really attentive. I think we stayed passed 1.5 hrs and since it wasn't busy, they didn't bother us. Thanks for the great service and the boil special sauce is amazing!
I love this restaurant. The food is great. Love how quiet it was yesterday and the service was wonderful.
Hostess and staff was awesome! Will definitely come back here!
Every time I go to the boil, the experience is always amazing. They have great customer service!
Strange eating from a plastic bag and eating with a plastic fork. No dessert menu.
Outdoor dining does not have music. The chairs are a bit uncomfortable, but the food is amazing, fresh, & the utensils are clean.
Our waitress was so amazing had to show me how to break the crab legs and get in but was very patient and sweet about it. Loved our experience there!
Everything is amazing, very friendly staff.
I cannot say enough about this place. The food was AMAZING! The staff was AMAZING . I will definitely be going back. The food was beyond tasty. The drinks were on point.
We love to eat at the boil. The food is fresh and perfectly seasoned. All the service staff are very friendly and well manner.
The food is awesome. The seasonings that are used gives the food an exquisite and mouth watering taste.
Great food! Really nice hostess and waitress , the food is pricey but is worth it if you want delicious buttered crab legs and shrimp !
Great place for a "fun alternative" dinner. Be prepared to get messy (if you go "full boil" - which is the main reason to go). CASH ONLY. And I WISH I could catch them when they had some Maryland Crabs (a personal fave) although the Dungeness crabs were tasty.
Expensive food served in a plastic bag, plastic fork and no plates.
For that price, it’s a pretty cheap food experience which wouldn’t matter if it was a food truck but it’s far from a restaurant standard.
They ask for a credit card in case you don’t show up but then say you have to pay cash only . The food is grossly overpriced . Lobster rolls had very little lobster and tons of filler . Everything served in paper . We asked for lobster rolls to be served after our appetizers but everything came at once . Just a terrible experience .
I feel like I’m a seafood connoisseur. I’m from Miami and I love a good ole Cajun New Orleans style dish, so I think I can be a judge of what a good seafood boil is!
And The Boil is it! I’ve tried many seafood spots in New York and The Boil wins every time!! The food, the service, the ambiance all of it!
This place is always a hit! Never ever a miss!! Try the Brussels sprouts! Thanks me later!
I love it here!
Incredible staff. They were so attentive for our large group and provided the best service. Made my mother's birthday extra special! The food was great as always with good portions, we took leftovers home!
Great experience we loved it
So much fun for a birthday dinner.
