    THIS PLACE IS AMAZING. They take reservations now! I ordered 2 lbs of the shrimp in the Boil flavor. Takes a lot of work, making the shrimp so much more delicious!

    Delicious, exactly what I've been waiting for in NYC. Comparable to Boiling Crab in LA. Recommend the boil special sauce, mild for snow crab legs & shrimp. Get the catfish. & there is a 1.5 hour wait.

    What a restaurant! Our waitress was amazing, even demonstrated how to properly eat a crawfish. Go for the combos and order a few apps, it won't be too much! We enjoyed every bite. Come early!

    One of my favorite places in NYC. Crawfish is always fresh and amazing with the boil special sauce. Service is always good and the music is on point. Super chill environment. I love The Boil!!!

    Took my husband here for his birthday and he is from Louisiana and he gives this place a thumbs up 👍👌🏽💪🏽. The crabs the clams in any sauce! First time I ate Brussels sprouts and I’m in love 😍

    Went on a Friday evening. It's worth the long wait! It was an awesome (and messy) eating experience! They'll text you when your table is ready. So check out one of the nearby bars while you wait.

    One of my favorite restaurants of all time. They don't take reservations but you can call ahead to put your name on the list. Try the crab with the boil sauce and mac and cheese. You won't regret it.

    Great seafood & you don't have to worry about getting your clothes messed up. The music and drinks are great as well. But it's a small place so make a reservation on busy nights like during happy hour

    Combo A is fantastic and can definitely feed two. The crayfish were kind of puny but that might be due to the time of year. Great atmosphere and staff. Get the boil special sauce spicy!

    Love the shrimp they are massive. The boil signature sauce includes garlic butter, old bay seasoning , and lemon pepper. It's a little overbearing but works well with the shrimp with the shells on

    The boil special spicy combo A!!! I get this as take out once a week. It's almost an unhealthy obsession. For a place with such great Cajun food..... Their blood mary is sad. Just sad.

    The BEST place - hands down! One of my favorite restaurants and I refuse to leave NY without going to eat here! Get some good ol' shrimp, crawfish, & corn with the boil sauce! Won't be disappointed!

    Crab legs of any kind, crawfish, old bay fries. All great. Love this spot. Special sauce is good, and the garlic sauce is excellent.

    Go for the 2 lb combo (1 kg) if you are with two people, which comes with potato corn and sausage. Then you choose a sauce and the level of spicy you want. Cash only place! Leer más

    Wasn't as amazing as people say it is (But maybe I'm just not that into crawfish). Get clams with garlic sauce- that one is yummy!

    Nice nice spot, a crawfish spot near the heart of Chinatown/lower east side... Or in NYC is quite rare. Food is fresh... And price is reasonable... And the ambiance is also very nice! Def a must go!

    Contrary to what most people assume are the better appetizers at a seafood restaurant, the mac n cheese was surprisingly amazing. It was baked, and the cheese was full of flavor. Highly recommended!

    The snow crab is a must, but sadly we were a little meh on the crawfish. Brussel sprouts are great!Service was fast and we were happy overall.

    This place is so much better than "craw daddy's" around the block, though boil is cash only. The Alaskan crab is hard to break without cutting yourself and I think the snow crab is way better.

    Would recommend if you looking to fulfill your crawfish fix here in NYC. Needs for improvement: actually boiling the crawfish with the seasoning, and not adding seasoning later & get rid of those bags

    All I really need to say is that the medium spiced Garlic Butter Sauce was finger licking good. Y'all need to bottle that stuff. The crab was succulent and that sauce OMG. DELICIOUS

    Such a fun spot! Be prepared to get messy. Good shrimp & king crab legs. Make sure to dunk the bread in the extra sauce. And be careful not to squirt shrimp head juice!

    True to tradition, expect a bag/bucket of crawfish with potatoes, corn & sausage dumped on a table in front of you. It's messy, fun and there's room for a bigger party if you travel in packs ;)

    Cash only, they've got an atm near the front door. I recommend getting the garlic butter and old Bay seasoning mixed together with whatever choice of seafood you prefer.

    The boil sauce is excellent. Very flavorful. Goes well with everything. Cash only. Large groups watch out. There is a automatic tip and they "accidentally" put tax the tip also.

    You're hands will smell like garlic butter for the next 24 hours, but it's worth it. The shrimp and clams are my personal favorite, but many like the crawfish.

    They give you a bib, gloves, and a giant (really really delicious) bag of food. It's fantastic if you're okay with getting your hands dirty, or just want a meal where you can't touch your phone…

    Fantasmic! King crab legs are meatier than snow crab. Pony up. It's worth it. Get a side of noodles to swirl around in the sauce. Ditto on great service. Note, cash only.

    The best meal we had in NYC so far! Amazing lobster and crab legs in the magic Boil sauce. Go early and then u don't need to wait at all.

    You will need a mint afterwards if you're not a fan of tons of garlic. Otherwise, holy hell the boil special spices make me miss home. Decently sized crawfish too. New favorite.

    Get theBoil special sauce on whatever you order. The catfish fritters were also a great starter to distract us while we waited for the real deal.

    Not for the faint of heart: be prepared to be gloves and bibbed. Super fun atmosphere and wonderful food. Try the combos!

    I'm a Louisiana native and can vouch that the food is on point. The catfish is delicious! Also, thumbs up for the playlist!

    The soft shell is delicious, oysters and clams are fresh, crawfish is a bit too soggy for my taste and the lobster is good.

    Make sure you get the Boil sauce with your order and also get a side of steamed rice so you can pour the Boil sauce over it. Enjoy!

    The boil special sauce is what u want on your shrimp, clam, crab, etc. Exploding with flavors. Awesomely priced. Crab cakes are also delicious.

    Crawfish are a pain to eat but worth it. Shrimp is the best in my opinion. Soft shell crab portion is a little smaller than I expected

    The experience is better enjoyed without the gloves. Sure you will have to wash your hands thoroughly but the crawfish is worth it.

    If you are looking for Louisiana style crawfish this is not the place to go. The boiled crawfish is covered in butter, garlic and old bay similar to West Coast crawfish joints like Boiling Crab.

    Get the crawfish & special sauce. Spicy is pretty hot (& good!) so just squeeze the tail, twist, pull, suck, & enjoy! (hehehehehehe)

    I can't speak for anything else but the lobster rolls for this place. But the lobster rolls were pretty amazing. I do wish the place accepted credit cards though

    Great crawfish but now they are only allowing people to dine for 90mins including the time you are waiting for your food.

    Bad service. Took 40 mins for food to arrive. Entree came out before our apps. Gumbo tasty. Mostly veggies & rice w/some sausage & 1 shrimp. Ordered "Cajun" Crawfish. Got butter & garlic. Still good.
