Alexandra C., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on April 9, wrote, "We started with the complimentary bread, white bean hummus and pear salad with goat cheese. For mains, we ordered the chicken and the farro. The chicken was juicy with a spicy kick. The farro was the surprise hit of the night. I loved the porcini mushrooms that accompanied the dish. I found Crown Shy to be extremely delicious and quite affordable for the ambiance and experience."
And Shawn H. wrote, "This was outstanding. We got the following (in rough order of my preference): Gruyere fritters, Octopus, Short rib, Hummus, Cavatelli, Caramelle, Chicories salad. The prices are also surprisingly reasonable for this kind of place, and the price/volume ratio was really solid for everything but the short rib, which made up for the lack of volume by being incredible."
