Description: Crave Fishbar is a vibrant, convivial restaurant in Midtown Manhattan serving an inspired seafood menu from chef Todd Mitgang. An eclectic mix of reclaimed materials and custom made chairs and tables lend a beachy, rustic feel to the space, which houses a 25-foot-long bar where guests can order from the full dinner menu along with cocktails and wine from a mounted bottle display. Approachable, sophisticated dishes feature local seafood, crudos, and meat dishes that are thoughtfully prepared with both familiar and exotic ingredients.At the 2nd floor bar you will find a full raw bar shucking up a large variety of East and West Coast oysters. Outdoor seating on both floors. Crave Fishbar has taken its place as a neighborhood fixture, providing locals and newcomers alike with a elegant, inviting experience.

Food was excellent. Had a selection of fresh oysters that were great. Waiter was very helpful in making selection.

Yellow fin tuna and mussels for main course were both excellent. We sat upstairs. Bring your earplugs!

What an amazing happy hour deal ($1 oysters)! Am definitely glad we made reservations. When we arrived there was a line out the door, but we were seated immediately. Our server James was great. Speedy service and lots of recommendations. We usually hit the GC oyster bar but decided to try somewhere new this trip. Glad we did.

A gem, off the beaten path, on 2nd Ave. A cozy, intimate well decorated restaurant where the staff is outstanding and the food is several notches above. This place has Oyster Happy Hour! My Tuna was done perfectly and the rice dusted calamari must be tasted. Great Wine, great food, don't pass up the opportunity.

The food at Crave is very good. The fish is fresh and the wine selection quite diverse. The best thing about Crave is M-F from 5-7 pm oysters are $1 each and sparkling wine 1/2 price. The service however is pretentious. Eat at the bar for fun.
