I only went to this place because my regular place closed down. This place is over priced, the food seemed thrown together and has no real flavor. The lady there kind of tossed the flatware on the table and didn't even offer us water. We asked for water and it took her ten minutes to bring us one glass for the three of us. We were the only people in the restaurant at the time so it can't even be blamed on being busy. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone. Money could be spent better elsewhere.

I used Krik Krak to cater a student event I hosted and they were so accommodating and patient and definitely helped me find the best value for my budget. The food was amazing! Everyone was pleased. I recommend the griot and the meatballs, and even their garnish is fresh and edible. The garlic-based sauce they serve is amazing. I haven't tried any of the seafood yet, but that's next on the list.

Well, if you are in the mood for Hatian food and that classic Haitian hospitality, go to Krik Krak! This is a small, woman owned and run cuisine oriented spot uptown; I had an assortment of appetizers and the MOST delicious red snapper served in a creole white sauce. it was really nicely done--fresh fish and incredients cooked to order. Even the lemonade, coffee and rum cake for desert was a treat! Intimate room but nicely appointed! A real find and the value is excellent.

I've never been to the restaurant but used online reviews to decide that I wanted krik krak to cater my function... and they did a SUPERB job! The food was delicious and the owner was so kind and accomodating!

I had the Red Snapper. Dry and Salty. I have had better Haitian Food. Considering that there are not too many Haitian Restaurants in the area, if one is in the mood for Haitian food; go for it. Otherwise, go somewhere else. Really overrated by others. The place is tiny. The middle-aged owner tried her best to be friendly.

I went to Krik Krak with the family. We drove frm Queens to try it out. The food was good but a little salty. I had the fried snapper not bad a little dry. My son had the creole chicken tasty. The fried plantains were awesome. The service was good. The space is tight but with the rent the way it is i could understand. Its worth a a try. It's great to see Haitians living the dream.

This is basically good Caribbean street cart food at a higher price point. Nothing disappointing and nothing special. I have no idea how their weekend delivery service is, as they never answer the phone. The workers at the restaurant are extremely pleasant and warm. Most of the good reviews are, however, highly overrated. That's not a reason to stay away, but you can find better Caribbean food for lower cost if you are willing to go farther afield in Manhattan.
