Crescent Grill Ratings and Reviews
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!)
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.
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.
Upon being seated I noticed one small but big detail - an image of NYC skyline nicely lit and strategically placed on the back interior wall. Among other details are many paintings on display on the walls. On a quiet night, I can see myself with a glass of wine viewing one painting after another. And that reminds me about the wine list - I was pleased with the selections, both my husband and I stayed along the red options. He had the Bordeaux and I had the Lodi Pinot Noir. They were both lovely! We shared a few appetizers and the steak. Attentions were given to the creativity and flavors of all of the dishes. I find the menu somewhat limited, as to be expected with some farm to table restaurants. Crescent Grill is a stellar of a farm to table restaurant and a gem in LIC.
Great food I must say! The service was okay. They have a ridiculous rule of not allowing diners in the back "classy" room to order from the Pub menu. The pub menu has a couple of items that are not exactly pub food, i.e. salmon. We were dressed nicely for a romantic dinner out and wanted a nice ambiance, which this place offers in the dining room. However, when looking at the main menu, we realized that the pub menu had some items that were more appealing at that time. We decided to order off the pub menu, but were forced to get up from our nice romantic candlelit white table cloth table, which we were so comfortable and were really enjoying and move to a high-top table at the bar, simply so we could eat some salmon...which shouldn't be on a "pub" menu in the first place. I'd go back for the food, but the pub menu rule of only eating in the loud front area is ridiculous. If this place wants to stay in business...forego that rule and simply let your customers enjoy anything on the menu..anywhere in the restaurant.
Was in town for business and found the there were not a lot of options in Long Island city. I got this reservation from a friend and reserved a table. I happened to hit on a night when they also had an art opening. It was all fun and tasty.
Long Island City does not have many restaurants and this one was a definite surprise.
I booked a Sunday meal with my niece and her husband to show her around the area to which my ancestors arrived from Ireland in the 1920's . It's changed so much! Crescent Grill was perfect. The staff were really, really nice and the food was great. I would definitely recommend it on a trip to Long Island City. With the number of hotels right around there, looks like Long Island City is getting to be a hot area. Go to Crescent Grill!
My son and I ventured to Brooklyn for his spring break. We are from the Boston area. A family member recommended we visit Crescent Grill as her boyfriend's two brothers own/run the restaurant. Honestly, I went there for my son's excitement for this connection but I was SO pleasantly surprised. From the moment we stepped foot in the restaurant, I was impressed. The hostess, bartender, our waitress greeted us with such warmth and gentility...the artwork on the wall was an unexpected cultural bonus...but the real gem...the food. It was exquisite from beginning to end. Elevated, seasonal, creative, beautiful cuisine and not typical New York prices. I wish you were in our neighborhood back home, we'd be regulars! Thank you for an amazing experience.
I was here for 2 meals. One at a table and one at the bar, both times as a single while on business. Very good execution of their goal which is freshness and local ingredients. Friendly, timely staff. I like the interior design, it has some fresh elements and is very welcoming.
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!
