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.

Blonde hair hostess that’s checks ppl in me & my girlfriend always have a problem with her because she never seems too give us the seating we always request. We frequent there all the time an she always choose to give us an excuse about booth seating especially I’m writing it in my comments when i make the reservation, overall food & service is always good but this go round my catfish was soggy falling apart, my girlfriend 🦀 leg sauce was cold.

The food was really good. I just wished they offered shrimp with the head off because it can be somewhat traumatizing like what if I accidentally eat an eyeball. Our waiter didn’t really check in on us like that but it was fine because we were occupied with the food. Checking in for my reservation was a bit of hassle the host was a bit rude

Why does this restaurant not accept credit cards or debits cards. On entering we were told cash only. I will contact consumer affairs. This seems very strange and I am not happy about having to use the only atm near the restaurant that charges a high fee. This experience was very uncomfortable.
