Enjoyable

I don't enjoy many restaurants, but I did enjoy my meal at King Crab. It was flavourful and attractive and the quantity of food was just right. It is expensive, so we won't go often, but it is nice to find a place where the quality of food matches the price.

We had a groupon for here and a reservation. We showed up an hour early due to other plans falling through, but we were met by Brian, the owner, and we were seated immediately. He really seems to appreciate his staff! We started off with the crab dip, which has a subtle kick to it. My husband had the jambalaya,... More

Found this place via Groupon, lucky me! Everything we ordered was beautifully presented and delicious! Amazing chef! Because we went on a Wednesday, we had them option of 20% off all food, or our Groupon. We chose to keep our groupon and go back another time. Really enjoyed it.

I want to preface this review by stating that while we were at the King Crab Oyster Bar on Saturday there was a strange odour coming from the rear of the building (outside). As a result of this we've rated our experience as an average, which only shows our experience from Saturday, not what we have experienced here before (which... More

This place is magical and we go often! You really can't go wrong with anything on the menu, but our favourites include: the rainbow trout, truffle mac & cheese, coconut crusted shrimp, grilled watermelon salad and escargot tower! The service is always great. The open kitchen is a nice feature.

This was our second visit in 3 years to celebrate my wifes birthday. Our first visit was quite memorable on a positive note. Cannot say the same on this visit. We chose a Monday night for the 30% discount. There were 5 of us. We each had a glass of wine and only 1 person had an appetizer. The bill... More

Went as a group of four. Two ordered the seafood bisque as an app (nice tang and texture, and a large serving), one had a salad (loved the prosciutto in it) and another had the escargot tower (amazing!). Our mains were: prosciutto-wrapped monkfish on fingerling potatoes/poblan/corn (fabulous); sea bass; the crisp salmon (special); and seafood gumbo (not actually a soup,... More

Small portions, small tables, great service....not worth the second mortgage I had to take out to pay the bill.....go to the keg or golfs steakhouse if you want bang for your buck! Ps the lobster wasn't cooked right, but the steak was great (even though it was smaller then the size of a deck of cards).

In the summer I love to bring people to the outdoor patio, in the winter it's the cosy interior that oozes warmth and great smells from the open kitchen. Here's something you should know about this restaurant; you can spend a little or splurge a lot - it depends on you and your dining mood. I've done both, and have... More

This was our first visit to King Crab. My husband and I certainly enjoyed the food. The service was friendly, the atmosphere is cozy and warm, and the food served was tasty and hot. Nice wine choices. Great early week discounts on the food. 30% Monday, 25% Tuesday and 20% Wednesday. Check with them to confirm discount.
