I will never return to this place and definitely do not recommend it. The service was ok, but the food is the vital part of a restaurant and it was bad. We had the fish tacos and the crab cocktail. The fish tacos were probably the worst I've ever had (and I'm a fish taco fan), bland, dry, with the only "flavour" being a sort of spiciness. I was very surprised that they managed to make a fried food that wasn't good at all, usually anything friend is at least tasty. The crab cocktail was basically a pot of crab, with ketchup and mustard on the side and NOTHING else, so basically not even a proper dish, sort of like if someone just gave you half an avocado with a sauce on the side - very disappointing.

Dishes intended to be bite sized were too big to eat in a single bite and too sloppy to take several bites. (They’d fall apart) we waited so long for our appetizers that we didn’t order entrees. The only saving grace is the serving staff. VERY nice. Very personable- but I don’t go to restaurants for buddies.

I realized I could have saved 15% off of a very expensive meal, so I was understandably frustrated. I wish I could have had that 15% off. Every penny counts these days… you know the deal. Thanks

The food was good but it’s usually exceptional. With no GF desert option it made the $50price tag on par for a two course meal.

However, the service was wanting. They apparently forgot to put in our second course order, came to offer us dessert, then rushed to start the order since we never received it. They offered us free drinks to make up for it, which was nice, but they really had problems with the service, in general. Also, we sat inside and it was cold. Unseasonably cold for a May 8th, I'll admit, but the inside temperature was not well-adjusted.

I’ve eaten here a number of times, and overall the food has been very good, so it was a surprise that the lobster roll was bland and tasteless. It also would have benefited from the lobster being warm instead of cold; but that’s a perennial matter of feuding taste preferences, lol.

I ordered the lobster curry, my only downfall is that they dont have white rice and the portion of rice that comes with the curry is very small compared to the size of the curry. Other than that the sushi and and drinks were amazing as well as the pasta

The food was outstanding as was the service. My sister and I had the Barramundi and my husband had the Squid Ink Spaghetti. We all loved our dinners. The oysters, which we had for appetizers were fresh and properly shucked (if you're an oyster lover, you'll appreciate that). We can't wait to go back and recommend it to our friends. So happy we found another yummy place to dine on the UWS. Thank you Crave!

It was terrible, I could not eat it. I’ve never heard of such a thing and it was $31.00 which is way to much for avocado. This was not an acceptable meal at a seafood restaurant. Our server was very nice and she made our experience alright but the food was just okay. I’ve been before for dinner si I just think the brunch menu needs to be more reflective of the “fish area” moniker

They made us move tables after already being seated and taking our order. There were several other empty tables abailable (the resturant was practically empty) for a party of three that wanted a larger table. We ordered oysters and salmon and the salmon was inedible and disgusting. We had to spit it out and send it back. We had to complain twice because the first person said they would tell someone but they never did. Then the manager came and asked if we wanted to try another raw salmon dish and that was bad too. Horrible fish quality and bad cuts. Our drinks also took 20 minutes to come out and our waitress kept on forgetting to bring the drinks so they were just sitting at the bar. Horrible experience and I do not recommend this place.

They kinda rushed us to finish our oyster appetizer (3 different people came over within 10mins asking if we were done yet) maybe they dont have enough silver holding trays to serve the restaurant lol but the service was great otherwise. We had a wonderful evening!

I'm happy dining here with friends, family, or alone. My particular favorites are the salmon tostadas, the warm crab roll, and the fish tacos, though they are known for their oysters.

Staff was friendly and ambiance was nice too. I ordered the lobster curry and it was quite delish, added the fried rice to go along with it. I didn’t finish it all and asked for the lobster curry leftovers to be packed to-go. When I look inside the container today to finish my meal, the lobster pieces I left in the dish weren’t included. And they were big lobster claw pieces, at least 2 of them. For one of their most expensive entrees on their menu, it was a big let down for me. I was excited to eat my leftovers but clearly the person who packaged it took the protein out and I guess saved it for themselves? There’s no other explanation why those pieces would be left out when all the veggies and curry sauce were packed. I don’t think I’ll be returning. UPDATE: Management called and apologized and even offered to send me replacement dish. I declined but the gesture was nice.
