Food was subpar. When we voiced our dissatisfaction, the waitress was very rude and offered no real solution. It was able to be resolved after a bit but I wouldn’t go back

This is a great place for a seafood. The service was great and the food was awesome. I loved the seasoning. The only downside is the pricing. This place is a little on the expensive side. So come here when you have the money to actually splurge

Service needs improvement, employees should not be given to many tables at once so they can focus better on the orders. Food quality could be better, tasting wise could use a bit more flavor in your sauce.

The pasta was done differently it had crispy pieces of something inside that I didn't not like. My food wasn't that hot and it didn't come with a lot of sauce.

This location is not nearly as fun and "good" as the one on the Lower East Side (which is where I usually go). I went to this one purely out of convenience, but, frankly, I won't be going there again.

Our waitress Jenny was amazing . She answered all questions. It was a party of three but two of the people’s first time. She got everything we needed quickly . There was never a wait. We went around 6:30 pm ,It wasn’t too crowded or noisy. So everything was good however , Food wasn’t what We expected. It was just ok . After getting great reviews to go here .

It’s an amazing restaurant the staff are very friendly and nice. The only thing that was very disappointing is the they DON’T take Credit/ Debit cards. It’s CASH Only. They also automatically charge you 20% oh gratitude to your bill when it’s a party of 4. I went with 3 friends and my toddler son who didn’t had any thing to eat but a fruit punch and one piece of my corn because he already had his food and I was charged 20% of gratitude.

I came here for a girl's evening with my SIL and her sister. We ordered 2 combos and some appetizers. The food was so fresh and the crab was incredibly juicy. The calamari was a surprise because it was so perfect. The fire dishes really are fire. I love spicy food but couldn't eat that much of that combo. I could keep eating the regularly spiced crab legs and shrimp endlessly. We will be back, especially if The Boil opens in Brooklyn! Thanks to SIL for treating us and to the staff at The Boil for providing a great night.
