The front table server is very rude and disrespectful. We made appointment already, but she still let us wait for one hour.

The Boil has the best seafood in NYC and the prices are exceptionally reasonable making for a dining experience suitable for all.
The one downside is the wait being to long if you don’t have a reservation.
Otherwise the BEST! seafood in NYC

Went to Boil on July 7 for my birthday. Originally wanted to go to the one on Chyristie St, but very glad that we came to the one on Waverly, so much more room.
Was a little dissapointed that they weren't serving dessert that nite as it was my birthday.
All in all an enjoyable experience.

The 21st century what kind of place does not take credit cards and does not advertise that they do not take credit cards? A place with an ATM in the lobby just waiting to charge you a service fee. The service was lacking and great food never compensates for poor service. Finally who serves food in a plastic bag at your table with plastic utensils? These people do. Horrid.

our dining experience at the boil waverly was perfect. we made reservations for 6:45pm and was seated by 6:47pm. our waitress was attentive and very pleasant to have wait on us. she was very helpful in what we choose to eat and was very knowledgable of the entire menu. we didnt have to wait a long time for our food. the food was beyond delicious. me and my party were enjoying every second of our dinner. waitress was on top of our drinks and knew before we needed a refill. one thing i will have to say.... ORDER THE BREAD TO SOAK UP THE SAUCE AFTER FINISHING YOUR SEAFOOD.

I always love coming here. The Boil is my favorite restaurant in NYC and I would go everyday if I could. The prices have increased a bit but it’s still worth it!

Service was very prompt - we were seated on time and our server was very attentive. The food was great! I love that I don’t have to worry about getting anything dirty on the table or myself - the set up is wonderful and efficient. Will definitely be back for more seafood 💕

Only complaint I had was it was hot in the restaurant. The waiter said the air was on but we couldn’t really tell it was. We were eating and sweating at the same time

The hostess and waitress were not very professional. Our waitress took our orders, served our drinks and we never saw her again. The busboy had to help us with the rest of our request. However she did manage to add a hefty 20% tip to the check 🤬

I ordered a lb of shrimp with the old bay, butter and garlic seasoning. I also had a side of Mac and cheese.My meal tasted better than what I expected. The staff was very friendly. I will definitely come back to try other menu combinations.
