Service was good and delivery of the food was quick! food was very good, too!
I love The Boil, it’s always a great time and the food is delicious!
I was seated upon arrival. Waitress friendly courteous and knowledgeable of specials and menu choices.
We have been to this location several times and have enjoyed it in the past. This time, our reservation was at 9:00, perhaps a bit late (we were the last table to leave). But the busboy kept trying to remove things while we were still eating, and although our waiter did a fine job, we definitely felt like the staff could barely wait to get us out of there so they could go home. The staff started putting chairs up on tables and cleaning while we were still eating. One staff member actually started spraying disinfectant on the table tops near us, which we could smell while trying to eat. The food was good, but my snow crab legs were so soft that I couldn't crack them, making it difficult to get inside and remove the flesh. This meant that it took me longer to eat my meal than it normally would.
Visited to celebrate a birthday. The celebrant enjoyed their crab and shrimp meal. The cocktails were a bit watered down for the price. Two attendees had dietary restrictions and previewed the menu and decided to order the chicken wings. However, were saddened to learn that the establishment fries their shellfish and poultry in the same oil. The value of the portions was not commiserate with price.
I love the boil! Food was absolutely delicious. I don’t like the new way they have the crab legs by the cluster instead of the pound because it’s a bit confusing but the waitress helped us through our ordering
Some of the best crabs in nyc ! Period !
Great food, ambiance and experience! 👍👍 can’t wait to bring more friends there again!
Good place, the food is delicious and the environment is really good
Great food and fast efficient service. My only complaint would be that they are cash only.
Food was awesome. Lobster spiced with fire 🔥is hot but delicious. Ask for Jenny as you're server. She is kind smart and beauitful. Reservations are hard to get but so worth it
Everyone had a great time, food was excellent, ambience excellent, service was excellent. This group of 20+ would definitely go back!
It’s cash only and the atm was not working had to walk two blocks in the heat to get cash and there is a 20 percent gratuity so my bill was only 40 dollars they added 20 dollars in taxes for sitting at the table
Our server Lamoon (I believe that was their name) was incredibly sweet, attentive, and helpful. I dine in at The Boil fairly regularly and this was one of my best experiences. I love bringing people to experience the Waverly location. Can’t wait to go back.
Cash only was a surprise.
Terrific staff, very welcoming and willing to go the extra mile. Rey good food. Shrimp cocktail was great.
It's awesome ..I LOVE IT been going there since they opened.
Bruh you will love it here! So bomb and tasty! Lastnight was different 🔥❤️🔥
Excellent customer service
Amazing food, great service
Food and drinks was good like always
This place used to be great but now they give you way less food for the same (if not more) money. Most of our crab legs barely had any crab in them. Left still hungry and that never used to happen. Time to find a new seafood boil spot, unfortunately. I don’t know why they changed the menu so instead of a pound of crab legs you get one cluster. It is a real shame that this is happening because we love this spot. But we feel ripped off because we spent the same amount of money we always have but got way less food. Won’t come back until you go back to giving us a proper amount of food for what we pay for.
Been a while since I’ve been here and the prices have soared up for less food. I understand a pandemic hit and everyone has to make up their money but trying to finesse your customers while providing less isn’t good. Probably not making the trip there anymore
We dined outside, in a little shelter on the street. It was rainproof and it had its own heater, which we were glad to have. The atmosphere inside is what I'd call genuine "faux-thenticity." Our shrimp arrived boiled in plastic bags, so while this is not fine dining, it was fresh and tasted great.
We had a good time there. The food was superb and the service was great!
Everything was great besides TWO waiters coming to our table every 5 mins. We continuously ordered enough food & drinks while we were there so it wasn’t like we were wasting time or a table. Other than that, the waiters were all friendly & polite. Just don’t come off too strong next time.
Fantastic experience with the service/wait staff and overall ambience! Having an outdoor seating experience with The Boil was wonderful.
Was celebrating my son’s Baby and Father’s Day
Amazing. Everyone was really nice, food was amazing and came out quickly. Drinks were so good (highkey recommend the frozen margaritas) crab leg sizes were great too.
I love going to the boil with my family. Food is amazing and we will return soon.
It was great, food was delicious and the services was excellent.
Must have changed management. I’ve been here a thousand times and have always loved it -but I’ll never be going back. The menu and prices have changed along with the quality -incredibly salty food, and 25$ for only 1 knuckle of crab? No thank you. I can eat seafood elsewhere from now on.
Food and service was good but…I’ve not eaten at a cash only restaurant in years. No one carries cash anymore. Get with the times!
Great ambiance and delicious food. Servers were very attentive.
Always a good time! Great food! The crab and shrimp boil is amazing!
loved the place! very fun experience and everyone is so nice and attentive. bring cash
Fun change of pace meal. Be prepared to get messy as it's served in a bag to be dumped on the paper covered tables. I wish Maryland Crabs were in season when we went, so we'll have to go back.
Amazing food, delicious drinks, and the service is impeccable. The wait staff was so friendly and ready to help with any request. The food was so good, my boyfriend and I will definitely be returning.
Great Restaurant! Loved everything about it. 100 percent recommend.
The food was good and the service was great. It felt really good being able to enjoy dinner with family and friends..Lets get it New York!!
