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.

    Good, although we were given more whitebait than we could comfortably eat because the squid had run out and the music was too loud for an audible conversation. It would be appreciated if the music was more background music for ambience or atmosphere rather than a constant heavy beat.

    We ordered as start crab raviolis and as main dish, the special of the house with lobster, kingprawns, mussels and clams. Well it was quite disapointing..specially because we wanted to try your restaurant after one friend recommended it, the starter was 1 ravioli...we thought that 7 pounds for one ravioli was a joke...then with the seafood dish, the lobster was good, but the clams were practically all empty, the prawns were so small that we couldnt believe it....the sane with the mussels....i dont know if this is the service level you offer but i dont think is worthing 70 pounds we paid...

    Service was dreadful, we asked for things and never got them and subsequently got charged for them. took over an hour to get our main courses (2 salads) after our starters.

    First class food and wine, friendly attentive service, reasonable cost - top marks.

    The main course ordered was Crab Linguini, however what was served was Linguini Marinara, there was barely the hint of crab, which was the whole point of coming to this restaurant.. Very disappointing. When we complained, the waiter said there was crab in the dish, but in the sauce it was not the main why advertise this dish as Crab Linguini.

    Food arrived without sides and by the time they turned up the rest of it was cold. The manager came over twice and didn't apologise either time, they took some money off the bill after some prompting but it was too little too late really. Shame because the restaurant was lovely, location was good and our waitress was great but the managers attitude was the worst I've ever seen.
