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.

    The food was pretty poor despite returning to the venue after previously having had a good brunch. The Christmas menu is clearly pre-bought frozen food that is defrosted and heated through. All except the scallops...which were tasty but tiny! The environment was cold and staff kept going out of the door next to our table rather than the actual entrance leaving every one of us cold. Towards the end of the night, my dad even had to wear his coat to stay half warm which is unheard of!

    The staff were pleasant big the entire service offering is flawed and falls short of the price paid. I had the crab which was tiny! Ended up leaving half of it as it wasnt particularly spectacular and just ate the chips and salad which were great!

    disappointing, service was very poor, the shell fish was bland, prawns in the hot pot were tiny. overall I felt it was overpriced.

    The restaurant had a good ambience and atmosphere. The food was average, compared to other restaurants in the area. The crab and waffle and peppered squid were nice starters and would recommend. However, the soft crab bun was a let down, they served the crab on a cheap burger bap; I would have expected a better quality bun for the price. Overall, it was an average experience and given the choice of restaurants in the area, I will unlikely visit again.

    Good vibe as you walked in and seated quickly. Food came out fast-actually before the drinks! Unfortunately food average for a menu which sounded great. Nice enough staff.

    Food was ok - looked very pleasing on the plate but taste was a little bland. Took a while to get the bill but ambience was good - not too loud and able to hear conversation.
