I like the decor. Very chic. Good service and the place is fun. I love the garlic noodles. The food is all very creative. But they charge you extra to crack the crab legs! This is a rip-off because trhere is no way to eat them without paying this extra fee. Stop this lame fee!
After hearing about this restaurant from several people in different conversations I decided to take my wife there for her birthday. This place had incredible ambiance and the decor was amazing from the live band playing smooth jazz to the beautiful coy fish pond you could see through the glass flooring in throughout the restaurant.
From the time we entered we were promptly greeted and escorted shortly after to our table. We ordered the house specialty of "cracked crab and gar...view morelic noodles" that came highly recommended from others we have dined here. I can honestly say they were not exaggerating. Both items were exceptionally delicious. I had never tasted noodles or crab prepared this way. They unique blends of herbs and spices they used were incredible. They were so good that I had to order a second serving of each to go. I mentioned this because this place is somewhat pricy but after tasting the food it was worth every penny.
My wife and I were both thoroughly impressed with the incredible service and the delicious food. We both have a new favorite restaurant.view less
Its good, but needs a bit of the neuvo. Now I am an oldschooler, and love the simple. This restaurant is very good but not worth the bucks. there are so many wonderful places now that make Crustatean hide out. Please do some new things, or the same things but better.
One of my favorite restuarants! Most places in Beverly hills don't live up to the hype, this place exceeds them. The decor and the atmosphere is stunning. The food is also great, the garlic crab and the garlic noodles are two of my favorite. If you want a place to WOW out of towners or impress a date, I definitely recommend coming here. You won't be dissapointed!
We arrived a tad fashionably late and our hostess Michelle immediately escorted us (a party of nine) to our table and provided us menus upon seating. The occasion we were celebrating was my sister's birthday. The atmosphere and ambiance right away encaptured the entire party. Our appetizer starter was the signature appetizer platter i.e., chicken dumplings, coconut shrimp, crab puffs, steak satay with peanut, mustard and soy sauces, and crab cake salad which was unbelieveable. Our ...view morewaiter, Drew was awesome and had a great sense of humor dealing with the crowd that I was with. The main entrees ranged from tiger prawns and garlic noodles, rack of lamb and vegetables w/ side of garlic noodles, filet of sole, chicken satay, jasmine rice, ginger brown rice, coconut shrimp, short ribs and dungeness crab out the shell. If there was a 10 star rating Crustacean would be worth it. What a dining experience, when the bill came that was an experience as well but that's another story; you had to be there. Looking forward to my next dining experience at Crustacean...view less
The atmosphere can be a challenge, especially during busier times; however the food is very good. Everyone rave about the garlic noodles and they should because they are delicious. And the setting is of course something to be seen, especially for out-of-town guests.
