My boyfriend and I went here in search of delicious whole fresh fish and that's exactly what we got. It's BYO so we brought along a bottle of Chablis. Our waiter, once he sat us down at this small little table where we were nestled in between two other couples, quickly got us started sipping our Chablis right away. He was quirky and charming and lovely and made the whole experience such a delight. The space is small and decor is odd but intriguing. We started with the tomatoes and mozzarella and then each ordered a different whole fish (him the branzino and me the dorado) which came with a side of yummy garlicy buttery mashed potato and vegetables. Everything was simple but simply delicious! The flaky white meat of the whole fish got better with each bite. I stripped my fish clean and savored every bit. We topped off dinner with a flourless chocolate cake which was not as good as the dinner but it did the trick and satiated our sweet tooth. On our way out, the owner and chef shook our hands and joked with us a bit. He was also just as lovely as the waiter. I don't say this very often because of the plethora of good restaurants in New York to be tried, but I very much look forward to going back. And the shrimp on a bike neon light in the window was the cherry on top! From start to finish, a most delightful dining experience.

We went to Petite Crevette for dinner last night and were somewhat blown away, despite having already heard great things. We started with a tomato and mozzarella salad. The mozzarella comes from the place across the street and the tomatoes tasted like summer (despite the cold March weather). The fish was notably fresh (we ordered the cod and the salmon, as per the recommendation of our server). The fish was accompanied by perfectly cooked veggies and mashed potatoes. The service was out of this world- each person was especially knowledgeable about the menu and the "stories" of the fish, produce, and cheese. It felt like we were at a family home for dinner. Very impressive and highly recommended!
