Acoustics need some help. Gets really noisy very quickly.
There is a reason this place is listed as TOP TEN Queens restaurants. I had such amazing food and a knowledgeable and amazing server. I will be going back here, many times. I recommend anyone to go here.
Great brunch. Food delicious.
Here to celebrate boyfriend getting into grad school. Food is always excellent, service as well. The most minor qualm I had: don’t be stingy with the ice cream. Portions are otherwise perfect!
The chef was excellent and came to our table to answer our questions! The food was excellent and the atmosphere was great! We totally enjoyed our experience and will go again!
Service was very knowledgeable about the menu, and had great recommendations. The owners were also around making sure everything was to our liking. Will definitely be back next time we are in town.
This was a very nice first time experience at this restaurant. Friendly wait staff and the food was terrific. My group had brunch and we look forward to returning for dinner.
Wonderful farm-to-table restaurant that provides a comfortable space with excellent service.
Food is delicious and the cocktails are superb. Glad to have a great establishment like this locally (I live in Queens).
Very nice atmosphere and professional, courteous and attentive service. My portion was a bit on the small side for my large guy appetite but it was well prepared and was very appetizing.
Next time I'll try a burger and see if the portion is more satisfying in terms of the size. Will try this place again.
THIS PLACE NEVER FAILS!
We absolutely love Crescent Grill! The food is amazing every time—the duck is to die for! The service was amazing and the owners are so nice. We love the car service back and forth; a very helpful and rare convenience! Fresh food and creative flavor combinations. Highly recommend!
I been to crescent grill mostly for their brunch which is excellent and wanted to try out their dinner which ended up landing on valentines day. I found that the value and the freshness went down dramatically due to this valentines menu, it worked against the simplicity of a farm to table restaurant with simple fresh & bold flavors. Also the Valentine's day menu was marked up so high compared to what you could get on a normal day, wish they just kept the regular menu, my stomach and wallet would have been much happier.
We made our reservation on Open Table and the day of our reservation the restaurant called to confirm our reservation. The staff was excellent from the hostess to bartender to wait staff. Food was excellent. When you receive the food your like that’s it but once you start eating it’s more then enough.
We let them know ahead of time it was for a birthday and they added a candle to the dessert.
I would definitely go back
Amazing food, great unlimited brunch cocktail deal! We will definitely be going back.
Food and drink were great but I thought the portions were on the same side . Would love to try it for Sunday brunch.
Warm, friendly, neighborhoody, well-prepared farm-to-table. Great selection of very local beers and knowledgeable bartender/GM. Nice atmosphere.
I've been so happy with everything both times I've eaten here. It's so laid back--please don't get too popular and crowded and loud!!--it has felt like the perfect place. The food is excellent and plated beautifully; the waitstaff knows what they're talking about; the local beers on tap are well-chosen; the vibe is unpretentious, the decor simple but also upscale. The art gallery is a cool thing too. We should have more places like this in Queens...but for now, this one really stands out.
Fantastic for dinner--an attention-getting menu, and dishes that easily surpassed their descriptions in the menu. The carrot & bone marrow salad was superb, perfectly balancing richness and acidity, and the parsley & lamb sausage soup was also a show-stopper, with remarkable house-made sausage.
The appetizer course left us wondering if we'd be disappointed by the entrees, but they were every bit as good--the ribeye and the duck were standouts, both using purees--some house-fermented--to complement the excellent meats.
We will absolutely go back again soon.
This restaurant was above and beyond. The team worked together seamlessly and each dish was a pleasant surprise- everyone at our table was happy! Highly recommended.
Impeccable service, delicious food, great ambience. Can’t ask for more! I highly recommend Crescent grill.
My girlfriend and I come here often for brunch. We typically arrive famished after a grueling workout. Crescent Grill is the perfect place to recuperate. The food is wonderful with a number of farm-to-table delicacies. The staff, including the owner, are friendly and accommodating. The ambiance is elegant but cosy. I'm a bit conflicted as I write this review: I don't want it to get overcrowded and so lose my Sunday morning oasis. But everyone at CG puts love in their work, they deserve some back.
We were pleasantly surprised with this restaurant. I found it very quickly while looking for dinner and assumed we would have a good meal. However, after arriving and being seated, we knew we were in for a very nice experience.
This restaurant is now on our list of musts when visiting the city.
We had our office party at Creacent Grill. They had all sorts of local beer on tap. Cocktails everyone seemed to enjoy. Food was amazing. I recommend everything. Go, you won’t be sorry.
Hadn't been before and was looking for good brunch food close to PS1/MOMA. We found it, tasted it and enjoyed it. Yelp and Open Table came through for us.
I love Crescent Grill. The food is tasty, locally sourced and beautifully presented. And virtually everything (lamb sausage, smoked salmon, biscuits) is made in house. The Dougherty brothers are gracious hosts who not only take care of their guests but also strive to help their community. I’ll be back for dinner and brunch very soon.
The staff was excellent. Very considerate and friendly. We had Sunday brunch and the food was delicious. I am especially a fan of the amazing in-house chicken sausage. Highly recommended!
Appetizers were good we got duck toast and parsley sausage soup. For main course we got sea bass it was over salted and completely inedible. Service was great but did not make up for the gross food that was quite expensive. They offered to bring us something else but it wasn't worth it.
A superb restaurant. Fantastic food and service. We highly recommend it.
My favorite meal is brunch. It's a meal that allows you to combine savory, sweet, vegetables, fruit, dairy, breads, bacon, all on one plate, and all sloshed down with anything from champagne to chocolate milk. Crescent Grill catered to my various brunch fantasies and whims. The other guests at the table were similarly impressed. Our food was fresh, delicious, and perfectly prepared. The walls were decorated with very interesting art work for sale. I wish we had had a bit more time to spend there. I bet dinner is amazing.
Delicious! Loved the innovative take on an autumn pork chop meal - so good.
Terrible. No vegan options. Incredibly rude server. Will not go back.
Food was amazing and they even picked us up. Would go back often.
After reading a DNAinfo article on this restaurant and seeing the menu, I was intrigued to try the cuisine, which lived up to its name! We were greeted in a friendly manner and had the opportunity to speak with one of the owners, Shaun, as well as be greeted by the bartender. During dinner, we enjoyed the ambiance of good music and quiet conversation. Kudos to the chef, and I am looking forward to my next dining experience and bringing along friends, as well as going to brunch on Sunday. This is fine farm-to-table dining, and the place is a gem in the midst of the industrial neighborhood! (PS - we shared the seared foie gras, my friend had the pork chop, and I had the smoked duck, which is out of this world. Try to leave room for the desserts - you won't be disappointed!)
Wanted to like it more than I did. The concept is spot on, atmosphere great, small menu, but the food didn't deliver. Excellent service and friendly staff, probably just an off night
Food was delicious, atmosphere was great, and service was the best! Their drinks are delicious; their bottomless brunch offer is very generous. The restaurant became progressively louder as time went on. I am guessing that is when the bottomless brunch drinks took effect :d.
Overall great place. Would definitely return and recommend to anyone in the area!
My wife and I tried it for dinner on a Saturday night and enjoyed it so much we went back the next day for Sunday brunch. Menu and wine list are limited, but thoughtfully designed. Food and service are very good, and the staff are personable and friendly. We'd recommend it highly.
Crescent Grill is amazing! Never had a bad meal and always amazing service.
It's what every restaurant should aspire to be.
They take extreme care to find the freshest ingredients and prepare them in a way that highlights their natural flavors, while making it look like a piece of art.
Went here about a year ago - really a fabulous dining experience. The exquisite paintings up for sale and decor added such a unique touch to the ambience. Food was perfect. Hidden gem.
Crescent Grill is everything all the other reviewers before me has written. Parking was accessible. The staff was very accommodating. We ran late for our reservation, a table of 6, and the staff was so friendly and not bothered. Our waitress whose name I forget, she was amazing and funny and attentive and JUST RIGHT. The food was delicious and the Bourbon Lemonade, well, you must try it.
