My guest and I both enjoyed our time at the Boil. The service and food were excellent! However, the booth we were given was cold on one of the coldest days so far NYC. Overall, I recommend this seafood restaurant.
Great food! Really nice staff. Helpful bartender who’s also very handsome.
I love this place, I’ve tried all the other crab boil places and The Boil beats them all everytime. It’s just tastes better.
Great recommendations and helpful advice for 2 novices. Food was incredible and we loved every second.
All I can say is WOW! This place was so dang good! The atmosphere was nice. The service was excellent! I mean these waiters will roll your sleeves up for you!! Haha Definitely a 10/10 for me !
Our server ( plz forgive me for not remembering her name ) was excellent. Food fresh as always
everything was great. host, waitress, food, busser. spaced out seating, accommodating to needs. excellent service all around!
Hands down the best seafood spot out! LaMoon was an amazing server. My favorite place to take new and old people
You'll have a very good time here, to hang out and enjoy the atmosphere, mostly for the young crowd; but you won't mind that as you crack your Lobster claws.
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.
