Music was too loud and did not reflect a variety of New Orleans musical traditions. Just a drone of hip-hop which became monotonous. So this took away from ambiance. But food was good including papaya salad Cajun French fries and seafood. But not much space to manage this on a table for two. Only got plastic fork and utensil for cracking lobster - would be nice to get real silverware including knives. And better for environment. Wine was nothing to rave about
It was really nice. The only problem I had was there was a little wait but I can deal with that but the problem is I feel like for people who have to wait there should be in a better waiting area. It was crowded in the waiting area, no place to sit. Other than that my experience was amazing. The FOOD? OMGGGGGG It was sooooo good. I WILL BE BACK!! I PROMISE. My second time being there and it never disappoints. Would I recommend? HELL yeah!!!
The food is great. The drinks are tasty and not watered down.
Not like juicy crab
Seafood was fresh and tasty. The place the clean and the staff, friendly and helpful. I come here at least 4 times a year for my seafood fix.
I don't like restaurants adding tip on the receipt themselves. Other than that, we loved the shirimps, as known well already. Place is little small, our order was misunderstood first but overall was very good.
Great food and service. Would definitely return for food again.
They play a lot of 90s/00s R&B the seating could be a little better but it’s known for being pretty busy. The food came out super fast. MAKE A RESERVATION !! The first time we went the wait was an hour so we just made a reservation for the following day
This location is very small in comparison to the Waverly location.
The food in comparison was not up to par. I ordered King Crab Legs and they were over cooked and very salty.
The sauce was very good. But the saltiness if the King Crab was over powering.
The main course was mediocre. Not worth the price. Perhaps if you had great seafood in the past you will realize the same. Everything else was fine.
Does NOT accept credit cards - was very disappointed about this.
Food was amazing, and the girl at the front desk not sure of her name was very welcoming
Amazing food and very friendly staff! Would definitely be coming back for more.
Really fun place! It’s a tad overpriced but overall everything was 10/10
LOVE THIS PLACE! I come here all the time for occasions (this time was a birthday) or just cuz! Food is delicious. You get exactly what you come for - a BOIL! Thanks for yet another great experience!
I enjoyed the overall experience except my table was too close to the other customer and I feel no privacy at all.
Careful with your reservations. We got in the line. By the time we got to the front we were considered 5 minutes late and told they could take our name and wait an estimated 30 mins. Their line caused us to be late and the hostess could of cared less. The eating space is crowded and noisy. Chaulking it up to NYC.
On the food side the King crab and shrimp boil we had was great. Our dining partners has fish and chips also a hit.
Met a friend after work. Reservation was super easy, we ended up sitting at the bar. Super friendly and met folks from out of town that make the boil a stop each time they are in NYC. Only thing, we had butter in the side and it quickly cooled. They don't have a microwave so they had to give us another and they charge for butter (not so cool). They don't have a way to keep the butter warm so next time I'm probably bring it my own butter warmer.
So so goooooood!!!!
The food was great. I definitely enjoyed myself. The only thing was my good took a little long to come out and they only take cash. I didn’t know that before going there so that was a bit annoying but they have an atm at the location.
Food was great! You can’t go wrong with a bag of seafood boiled in whatever sauce you want. Servers were nice and we didn’t feel rushed, which is always nice when it takes time to peel shrimp and crab shells.
Visiting from California. The price point was a bit high, but I guess NYC is more expensive. The service was good, but the server was not very friendly or engaging whatsoever. The food was good. My daughter had a lb of the shrimp, and I had the lobster roll. The shrimp was very good, but the roll was just OK.
Haven’t been here for awhile. It’s still the same. Great food, great service and great music.
the food was delicious it was affordable the staff was excellent it was lively yes I would go back there again and also tell my friends ;
This was my second time at the boil and my first time was amazing but this time I feel like the food was not on point at all! We waited a long time for the food and it was cold! The fries were salty, calamari,Mac and cheese, chicken fingers and the crabs were all cold and not seasoned with love. I’m extremely disappointed with my experience especially because this was my second time there.
It was a pretty good night. The only thing was the shrimp tasted as though it had gotten cold and then was heated back up. The food was relatively cold when it came out to our table. It was an okay meal.
Loveee their food! A great place to enjoy with good company and music!
The best restaurant
Food was amazing!!!! Puts red lobster to shame! Anytime I'm craving good seasoned seafood I'm coming here!
Great food and the service was awesome. In addition, the waiter made sure to stop at the table to check on us/ Customers.
A wonderful experience over all. Having been there before I had a great time as usual, however on those occasions, I was seated at a table with chairs. This was the first time for me sitting on the stools. After a while on those by back began to hurt. So if I could have changed one this about my experience this time around would be that. Next time I will request being seated at a table with chairs....... And yes, there will be a "Next Time".
The best of seafood of the world they are always busy
The food was very expensive but tasty. Service was excellent
Loved my dinnertime at The Boil. It was not very crowded, glad I made reservations. The food as always ways delicious especially the pound of shrimp in the special sauce- mild. Haven't found the best cocktail there yet so I stuck to wine, co worker had a beer and the crab legs dry with butter on the side which she said was good. Easy walk from work! We'll be back!
Very good establishment, got seated quickly, the food was good and the service was amazing
Not too sure about eating out of plastic bags and plastic cutlery. Food was tasty but too expensive for plastic. Cash only (no credit cards) which was a huge surprise in today’s day and age. Not a huge fan...
This place is consistent. Everytime I go the food is awesome.
Great ambiance great food!
Disappointed that I only got 2 king crab legs for the price I paid which was $45, Sausages were very salty , but overall food wasn’t that good, was just upset about the king crab legs
