Crescent Grill Ratings and Reviews
A real gem in a place you would not expect it. The food was outstanding, the art was interesting and the staff super friendly and inviting. We came from Manhattan to check out the farm to table (not much in the upper east side where we live), and we were super pleasantly surprised. The foie gras, duck and organic chicken were all amazing, we loved it!
I had a delicious meal at The Crescent Grill. Instead of ordering an entree, I paired two appetizers: a cauliflower soup and a carrot risotto. Both were flavorful and combined were enough for dinner. My friend had a delicious, perfectly cooked pork chop with a side of brussel sprouts. The menu has a good selection of seasonal produce. There were several large groups in the dining room when we were there, but the noise level was still quiet. The server was helpful in making suggestions and substitutions.
The food was exceptional in every way. In particular, the roasted cauliflower soup was intense in flavor, creamy and delicious, truly unique. The tile fish was filled with complex flavors (who knew that "roasted grapefruit " could be so delicious). The host is warm and friendly as are the rest of the staff. The ambiance is sophisticated but not stuffy and there is art everywhere. There is even a separate small gallery highlighting the artists of Long Island City. This is a "neighborhood" restaurant , but much more than that.
Crescent Grill was absolutely wonderful. The farm to table food was some of the freshest I have ever had. The chicken was so tender it's hard to believe it was chicken. The smoked duck breast was phenomenal. The service was very friendly. The instant we walked in the bartender invited us to have several samples of the local beer they have on tap. The waitress was wonderful and fun and very thankful for us to be there. This place deserves to be full all of the time. I will definitely return and probably even have some of the same things that I had before. Thank you Crescent Grill for a wonderful evening.
I've eaten here for dinner a few times and the drinks and food never disappoint! The food is fresh (farm to table) and ingredients slightly change based on the season. Cocktails are also phenomenal! The restaurant even offers free pick up if you live or are staying in the area or need to be dropped off at a train station. Highly recommend!
We really wanted to like this restaurant. We have so few quality places to eat near us in LIC. The dining room needs work. It wants to be an art gallery and a farm to table restaurant. It doesn't work together.
The food was delicious but was NOT worth the value based on portion sizes. A burata salad for $15 (2 ounces of burata and 8 mini pear/cherry tomatoes).
We have lived in NYC for 20 years. We go to restaurants with small portion sizes and high prices, but this was ridiculous. Again, the food was delicious but the portion sizes based on prices don't work.
It is a great farm-to-table find. It would have been much better if they could be more flexible with allergy related substitutions and a little faster tabling the food, but it was delicious and most importantly grass-fed and organic food. We will definitely come back.
Our first time here. To avoid Manhattan brunch scene we stayed in Queens and found this place. Wonderful brunch, we did the unlimited mimosa/bloody mary special and the sangria was part of the special too yum! Was a great way to stretch out afternoon conversation. The owner came by to check on us. We highly recommend Crescent Grill and will go back for dinner soon.
This was our second visit to Crescent Grill and brought friends because it was so great the first time. Everyone loved every bite of food. The staff is lovely and the owner stopped at our table. An extra plus is the availability of street parking. We came from LI and our friends are from Westchester so it is also a great half way meeting location.
With the flourishing advent of new & exciting eat-spots in Astoria & LIC, I was happily suprised by this fresh farm-to-table addition to the nabe. Tiny little touches like the just-churned whipped-cream for the lemon-yogurt pancakes & the cake-slice-thick banana-bread french toast & notable local art on the walls made it remarkable, and the tantalizing breadth of the menu assured return visits on many a weekend to come.
With the exception of the "modern" (pleasant, but noise friendly) decor, this is the kind of neighborhood restaurant I wish I had closer to home. For the most part, the ingredients were fresh, suggesting that they really are locally sourced (whatever that means in NY City). This includes the appetizing craft cocktails. I was disappointed to see less than a handful of NY State wines on the list. They could do better than that.Yes the portions are small (especially the Foie Gras), but carefully prepared and definitely fresh. We came on a quiet night in August and everyone was very attentive and friendly. One plus on the decor is the large mural at the end of the room, which suggest the view you might have across the East River if you were closer to it and had a large window. We came on a quit night and parking on the street in front of the restaurant --free after 7. Fortunate, since we don't live in the local area for a free pickup and return. If we did, we definitely come often. Menu is limited, but I assume it changed with the seasons.
Very nice restaurant and definitely will return, maybe for brunch the next time. Although we lived too far for their shuttle service, definitely nice touch. Only gripe was pepper mill was not brought over until halfway through meal, although overall, service very good.
Food was good. Value poor. Very small portions. I ordered the lobster. 32.00 for 1 claw with no knuckle and 1/2 lobster tail meat. When I complained the server brought it back and added an additional smaller claw. Claw was cooked and served in shell. This would preclude it having any special sauce or treatment that would justify the 32.00 price.
My boyfriend and I had an incredible and memorable time at Crescent Grill this weekend! The waitress, Kristin, was really wonderful, and gave top-notch suggestions and information about the ingredients and dishes. The food was truly delicious (and worth coming back for!), but the waitress really made the experience special. I can't wait to come back again for a special occasion dinner, but we plan on trying lunch and brunch here very soon!
This restaurant has an excellent presentation of ambience, service and food. But I think it is trying way too hard to be "gourmet." Nothing I had was really that satisfying in taste including the cocktail. The art gallery aspect was enjoyable, but I would not recommend this restaurant in regards to the taste of the food.
Crescent Grill was absolutely amazing! We were celebrating a year countdown to our wedding and they took fabulous care of us. The waitress went above and beyond to make it a special night and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! From the food to the champagne, and then the free ride home...everything was exquisite! Highly Recommend!
Extraordinary food prepared in a true farm-to-table manner. Love that you dine in the middle of an art gallery. Service was very attentive, but not so much that you felt like you were being rushed along. My first dining experience in Long Island City and now everything will pale in comparison. I just moved into the neighborhood and this will definitely become my local go-to joint.
We were picked up by the van which brought us home after dinner, a great plus. I started with the beet appetizer which was a bit of a disappointment, pureed clumps of beets with a couple of cut up beets, some greens and cheese, no tooth feel here.
I had the halibut in a broth with scallions and cucumbers and a curry sauce on the side; it first came overly salted so they made me a new one which was perfection, light and satisfying. My friends had pork chops and the chicken and everyone enjoyed their meals thoroughly.
The most annoying thing is when waitstaff pick up the dishes of those who are finished while one person is still eating, it makes them hurry their meal and is so rude. Other than that it was a very pleasant experience.
The owner stopped by to speak with us and was very charming and helpful especially with my fish.
The entire experience was exceptional! From the complimentary car service from the Courtyard Long Island City to the service and perfectly prepared farm to table menu; a true gem of a restaurant. The beet salad was perfect as was the wine recommended by the server!
I will definitely return during my next visit to see what new items the talented culinary team are preparing.
Nestled on the "other side of the tracks" in Long Island City is this jewel. The food and service were excellent. While the area is filled with industrial buildings it is very much a lively residential community. This restaurant has many really good offerings. I didn't have a drink but my friend did and she said her red wine options were very good and the wine she choose was very good. You'll not be disappointed!
The service was impeccable. We felt as if we were the most important guest in the entire restaurant. The food was delicious and the wine list left nothing to be desired. We were picked up and dropped off at our apartment by their complementary car service (super awesome!). What a great evening! Would recommend to anyone!
