The worst food I've ever eaten in Manhatten and I eat out weekly. Horrible seafood that is not fresh. Nasty preparation and accompaniments. Very overpriced. Our waiter pressured us to pay bill so he could leave! Go to Tabla, Union Square Cafe, Mesa Grill, Blue Water Grill, or any of a dozen other exceptional restaurants in the area if you want to spend this much for lunch.
Worst seafood in the whole-wide-world.

This place is horrendous--I don't understand why is it busy and it is the Worst food in NYC. Been here 2 times (gave it a second try for my boyfriend who didn't believe me).. First time my sister dared to eat the raw "oysters" and got violently ill.. Second time my boyfriend got the lobster and it came out oily and shiny and greasy--it tasted like oily, shiny, greasy lobster and made me sick. The drinks were gross too.. Please go to Aquagrill/Blue Water for a pleasant experience at the same $$.

I've been to City Crab a lot and every time I ask myself why did I come back? It's not like the food is bad, it's just average. The seafood selection is okay. If you like crab, you're in luck. But if you are looking for any other fish, I suggest looking some where else. The salad's to start are small and not good. The mixed salad is bitter, with little to no dressing. The mussels are decent, that's what I always get. I've had friends that love the fish salad. It's healthy and tasty. Too pricey for the quality and service you get. Wait staff is often young and too busy to check on your tables. Not one of my favorites.
Great food...not such a great atmosphere

While the food was good, and the service was great, the atmosphere was slightly shlocky. That is the only thing that could prevent me from returning.

City Crab looks like a suburban strip restaurant, which doesn't fit in Manhattan. That being said, the food is very decent and the Cobb Salad, made with shrimp, lobster and crab, is the best deal in town.
