I love it! We've been there three or four times. The food has very good taste and nice design. The atmosphere is good and servants are so welcoming. It's a fine cuisine, so won't expect a good portion of food. it was enough for me but my husband was still hungry! I highly recommend it!

Just had a fantastic meal! A bonus night for appys were half price Monday's. The calamari was lightly breaded and tender, the escargot were tender and tasty and the oysters were fresh and crispy! The monkfish as well as the sea bass were prepared excellently and well presented. The pecan pie as well as the key lime pie were made... More

Consistent. Love the open kitchen, first thing you see when you arrive. Made reservations through Open Table and good thing, the place slowly filled up. Our server was great, she knew the menu extensively suggest house favourites and suggested a few options based on our questions. We've been before, likely 6 times and this place is always consistent. Most of... More

I happened to come by on a Tuesday night with a coupon I got in the mail and realized they have a special (you need to make reservations for it, and it occurs every other week) where you eat a set course with wine pairing and get a complimentary cooking presentation along with it, where you get to watch the...

We were very surprised at the quality of food and the excellent service provided. We had a craving for seafood, but didn't care for the other seafood places in town. We were met at the door by the owner, (Brian) and escorted to our seats. The open concept of the dining and cooking area were appealing. Presentation was magnificent and... More

Went here on a date with my wife. We order some oysters which were good, as well as the monkfish and sea bass for our mains. The sea bass was way over cooked, borderline burnt, with a vegetable side mixture that wasn't that great as well. The monkfish was a little better, but nothing special. Service also was slow for...

This is a very disappointing restaurant. The food is bland, the room noisy and the prices remarkably high. The other reviews seem to be describing a very different restaurant. At best this is a mediocre restaurant. But, at that the food is seriously overpriced.

Normally going to a restaurant leaves me walking away feeling slightly off. I walk away thinking, I probably could have done better; at King Crab "NOT SO MUCH SO". Actually the only improvement I could suggest would have been to put in a mirrored ceiling so you could better watch the Chef's.

Going to King Crab has always been a treat and I go here for almost every special occassion. I love the atmosphere as it is very romantic and cozy since the restaurant isn't very big. I actually really don't like seafood which is funny that this is my favourite restaurant, but I go here for their caesar salad and filet... More
