Crab Tavern City is a seafood restaurant and bar that boasts a menu that merges New York style with classic west coast American fare. Choose from an abundance of hero crab dishes, rolls and salads, as well as more refined dishes from the classic grill and seafood selection.

The Crab Tavern menu features signature dishes like crab 'n' waffle, crab Caesar salad, and the perfect-for-sharing 'Tavern Platter': a steamy mix of crispy soft shell crab, charred corn, crab tartare, whitebait and squid. Elsewhere on the menu, discover crab-filled rolls with tastes of California, Maryland and China. The soft shell crab burger is the 'hero' dish at Crab Tavern served with Old Bay seasoned fries. If crab isn't your thing, there’s also vegetarian & non-seafood options, with dishes such as baby beetroot salad, Portobello burger & spatchcock poussin.

Dessert is an expectantly indulgent affair ranging from homemade fruit pies served with organic blueberry ice cream to the more adventurous pecan, chilli & maple tart with lime tequila sorbet. Much-loved classics including baked cheesecake, whilst sundaes are sweetly reminiscent of an American diner.

In the foodie hub of Broadgate Circle, Crab Tavern adds some American seaside glamour to the City. Liverpool Street Station is a short walk away.

    If you're a seafood addict, this is your restaurant. Everything on the menu sounds so delicious it took us quite a while to decide. We finally went for the oysters to share, one starter each (raviolo and fried squid) and then the hot platter. Everything so yummy. To drink, a beautiful New Zealand rosé. Another plus: They're gluten free friendly! They even have gluten free bread. Will definitely come back to try everything else on the menu.

    Booked to take my kids for what I thought was a relaxing Seaford dinner in the city.
    What I got was anything but relaxing
    Firstly it was incredibly hot to the extent we were sweating as soon as we sat down.
    When we arrived we had to wait 5 mins to be seen as a customer was arguing with the staff, so not a great start
    Once sat down we waited for our waiter to arrive. 10
    Mins later he turned up and took our drinks order which was a pint of coke and a pint of OJ and lemonade. Another 15 mins later the drinks arrived but we got a half of coke.
    It was so hot we drank them straight away and then struggled to get anyone's attention to reorder another 10 in fact
    I went to the bar in the end but it was just as bad with 18 people waiting and only 1 person serving. There were 2 others behind the bar but one was sticking up and one was collecting glasses so I returned to the table. Another 5 mins before a waiter noticed my arm waiving
    Finally got another round and ordered food along with a jug of water with ice
    What arrived was a bottle of water no ice
    Struggles to get waiters attention yet again
    Forgot to mention all the time we were there that a party of 8 were seated next to us and there was constant swearing and loud in appropriate remarks
    At no point were they asked to curb swearing or quieten down for other patrons.
    It was 45 mins after we arrived before second set of drink arrived by which time we were gasping. Asked for glass of ice at this point when to be fair turned up straight away.
    Starter turned up 15mins after we ordered so can't complai. We ordered the crab platter and the soft shell crab was very tasty. The other items on the platter could have been crabsticks for all I know as they were pretty tasteless
    Main course came fairly swiftly but was missing the chips we ordered
    We had the hot platter which had no mention of a sauce on the menu but i presumed it would not be plain which it was.
    I can't go on as no space but not great experience

    We each had a burger and thought it was very good. After meal service was not great however. We did not want a dessert but wished to have a coffee about 20 minutes after eating and the waiting service seemed to ignore that we may wish to have a coffee, even though desserts were not required.

    Half our party canceled so it was only 4 of us to dine. The host took us to our table and the after that point the service remained great. The restaurant was great may have just been renovated. The food was even better. I would return. We ordered off the menu although there were fixed price meals. The crab and waffle and the lobster ravioli was delicious. The grilled seafood skewer was presented very nicely and was cooked perfectly. We order wine with our meals.

    Are their any locations in the States? there was live music that was just a tad too loud but it was pleasant songs.
