Got some lobster meat, lobster tail, scallops and crab meat, and made pastas with them. Absolutely delicious, so fresh and high quality. Would def recommend!!!
My husband and I and our kids don’t eat a lot of seafood so we don’t order too often so the onetime delivery option was good for us. We like that it’s just protein and we don’t have to worry about whether one child will like a side dish and the other won’t. We can just make whatever side dish we know our kids both like. The quality of what you get is really fantastic and the portions are decent! As another review said, the portions are good but some products are very competitive in price and others are expensive. But we were really impressed with the quality.
Not a lot of packaging compared to other home delivery companies which I like because I hate having to recycle so much cardboard and paper every week. Each portion is individually packed in plastic and I understand why they do it because they want freshness and the quality of what you get is top notch. I order every now and then and it’s easy because I don’t have to order a subscription. I told my sister about it and her and husband and their kids loved it too. I’m surprised no one has done this before with seafood I know that there are meat delivery services but nothing with just seafood. I think Seafood create is focusing on high quality stuff I recommend them!
I usually get the rainbow trout, cooked lobster meat, and cooked crab meat but my parents can’t get enough of the black tiger shrimp. Everytime I order they ask me to get them some. I’m going to start having order sent to them directly. Lol This is such a great idea for fresh seafood. When we’re inland like this it’s not easy to get good stuff. Seafood Crate is the only seafood I my parents and I eat now.
Seafood Crate is my go-to source for sushi grade salmon and tuna. And I eat alot of sushi so its perfect for me. They cut the fish for you and it comes in a sealed plastic which is very fresh. It’s so easy to cut the salmon and tuna up and put it on top for nigiri. I don’t make alot of rolls because I prefer handrolls and nigiri. The quality of the sushi grade tuna and salmon is so good! I have tried the organic salmon and the regular one. I don’t know I can taste the differene. The tuna is the best I ever had!
We learned about this service on 91.1 JazzFM and was I ever happy to order my first order the same day! I lived on the Black See half of my life so am very particular when it comes to fresh fish. Seafood Crate has delivered on every level, including providing information on where the seafood is coming from so we can choose what to put on our plate. The fish and seafood has been exceptionally fresh each time and conveniently packaged. We are always looking forward to our next shipment which happens to be next week :-) The website also has a lot of ideas for cooking seafood which is great for even very experienced chefs (like myself). I also appreciate the fact that it arrives fully protected with cold packs so I have it delivered to my office and it stands until end of the day safely until I am ready to take it home or even make a quick meal at the office on a late night. Thank you very much for the convenient service and high quality product
We received our first order and were impressed with the freshness of the seafood. It was vacuum packed so was easily stored and kept fresh in the refrigerator until ready for use. We particularly enjoyed some of the cooked options such as the octopus and the lobster, as these are items we would not usually cook at home. The octopus was perfectly tender and was wonderful in a Greek octopus salad. And the lobster was a perfect portion to make fresh lobster rolls without having to crack open multiple lobsters. Will order again
Great quality and easy trackable shipping. The scallops are fantastic
I've placed a few orders with Seafood Crate now, and have really enjoyed the high quality and freshness of everything we've ordered -- I especially love the scallops! The packaging is great as the vacuum seal ensures the seafood stays fresh longer. I would, however, suggest the option of larger portions to reduce the packaging used.
My mother isn't a big fan of seafood but I am. We got some salmon, halibut, and shrimp and she loved the halibut! My specialty is broiled salmon and it turned out nice, really tender and full of flavour. She made fish and chips with the halibut and it was amazing. Looking forward to trying the pickerel next. I like the idea of buying local so pickerel and rainbow trout are good local fish that are great tasting. I hope I can turn my mom around on these fish because I love them. Seafood Crate should carry more local fish.
We just ordered our first crate. Hubby and I very excited to try this. Customer service on line was amazing and helpful. I really appreciate this type of service! I have a sneaking feeling this will be a household staple! I'm spreading the word:)
I lived in Japan, Korea, and China for a few years so I think I know a little about good seafood. I’ve never been impressed with fish here since I got back. I stopped going to sushi restaurants because it was all frozen, bland, bad stuff. But this is the best seafood I’ve had in Toronto! It’s really that good. And getting it delivered to my door in the vacuum packs is even better. Yeah the price is higher than a supermarket but you’re getting fresh quality.
There just isn’t a way to get fresh seafood where I live. Everything at my Sobeys has been sitting there for a while so this is a really convenient way to get fresh seafood. But some of their stuff is previously frozen like there lobster. It’s still really good though and the tuna is amazing. Super fresh. I get a box every other week and I love it.
All I get is the salmon because that is all my kids eat. They’re picky eaters but they love the salmon! I get some trout and cod every now and then. I love how I can make my own crate. From the pictures it doesn’t look like there’s any difference between the regular salmon and the organic salmon. But last week I got organic instead and I could tell the difference—even my kids said they tasted the difference!
Ordered from Seafood Crate, the website was very user friendly and the fish was delivered promptly to our door. The product was fantastic! Even my two young children loved it! Highly recommend!!!
This is a great service! Arrives well packaged and cold. Highly recommend.
Super fresh seafood delivered right to your door every week. My family loves it!
Great customer experience through and through, and wonderful seafood quality :)
I used to live downtown and it was so easy and convenient to grab a slice or something for dinner. But I bought a house outside the city and don’t have any restaurants within walking distance. So I decided to start cooking for myself. Just did easy stuff like bake salmon in an oven or fry up some shrimp. I got good at cooking simple meals and looked online for some other recipes and saw Seafood Crate. I ordered some tuna and made some tuna steaks and then some pokebowl. I couldn’t believe how good it tasted! It’s a quantum leap over the seafood I was getting at the Superstore. Now, I get all my seafood from Seafood Crate and I eat less chicken and beef. I’ve been meaning to cut down on my meat consumption because cattle farming is pretty intense on the environment. I know that tuna is overfished as well but at least the tuna they have isn’t blue fin tuna. That’s the one that’s almost extinct I think. I didn’t like the idea of farmed fish but apparently the farmed fish they have is certified sustainable. The only thing I would change is for the crates to be reusable and the packaging to be biodegradable plant-based plastic. I called them because I had a question about my order and I actually spoke to a human and they were in Vaughan! How rare is that for a company to pick up the phone immediately without me having to go through a long telephone directory and actually speak to someone local. I guess I kind of rambled but I’m pretty satisfied with them so far.
I like the concept and I believe the quality of the product is excellent. The price is a bit high on some items and very competitive on others. Overall, I'm ok with the price given the food quality. I have to deduct stars for delivery though. I realize this isn't the fault of Seafood Crate, but my last two boxes were delivered warm. Not cold, not cool, but warm. This concerns me to the point I'm no longer going to order any product until cold weather returns (I'm located in Ottawa). Maybe that will help, maybe not.
