I was disappointed after going here this past weekend, 8:30 on Saturday night. Our party of 7 (including the one who chose this restaurant) was seated immediately which should have told us something. The service was very slow. I ordered the chopped salad and crab cakes appetizer for my dinner. For $14.00 I expected more than 1 crab cake, not a good value , tho it tasted good and my salad arrived after we were all nearly done with dinner. The waiter was pleasant enough just not very good at tending to our table. We had to ask him several times to fill our water glasses and bring lemon, just little things that I expect to be done without asking. I will never go there again. Unfortunately with 7 people a 20% gratuity was already included in the bill, I would not have left that much!

I have eaten at City Crab numerous times and I always enjoy myself. It's not exactly diner prices but the quality is worth the extra few bucks! I've had very good service and very bad service there, something managment may want to keep an eye on. But overall I love eating there and I'm always looking for an excuse to get to that neighborhood so I can have some fabulous oysters and juicy lobster tail!

We wanted to eat at City Crab before going to a movie in the neighborhood. It was on a Friday evening during one of the two recent Restaurant Weeks. At 6 o'clock the first floor was mostly empty. The hostess showed us to a table by the window, one with high chairs and a high, small table. I asked to be seated elsewhere. She said they were very crowded because of Restaurant Week. I did not feel comfortable perched on the chair - if I had wanted to sit at a bar, I would have headed for one. The food listed on the menu was quite expensive, and the waiter recited more dishes with high prices. We had two crab stuffed mushrooms, the size of quarters, for $11 and fish and chips for $20. With a skimpy glass of wine the bill came to $42. When we went upstairs to use the restrooms, we saw that , like the first floor, the majority of the tables were empty. Because of the high prices, the mediocre food, the uncomfortable seating and the bad attitude, we will never go there again. There are many better seafood restaurants in Manhattan.

Being from New England, I've had the best seafood in the nation. City Crab & Seafood is amazingly good! The food is fresh, the prices are completely reasonable, and I found the atmosphere to be nautical and fun. We had a "value" meal of chowder, lobster, clams, mussels, corn, and dessert. Phenomenal! Loved it!

Had lunch at the bar. Not much to say other than Okay.

We ate here on 9/17 because we had a 7 month old and a active 4 year old and wanted to eat outside without disturbing other diners. I had the city crab omelette which was really good. Service was a little slow, but we weren't in a rush, so no big deal.

I've been to City Crab many times. They have huge king crab legs, the best I've had in the city. The oysters are always fresh! I just don't understand all the bad reviews, I've only had good experiances at City Crab, although I certainly can not say the same for the midtown version City Lobster.
