Diner Reviews
  • "Food, service and atmosphere were all great. This is a great place to go before Reds games. Menu has a wide variety to choose from including very good fresh sushi. Will return for sure."

  • "Been to a Crave in Orlando before and it was unbelievable. Loved every aspect of it and would have gave it a perfect score across the board. Went to Cincinnati location and picked a bad night to go. Didn't realize it was the same night as Jason Aldean concert next door at GABP. Food/Service was still excellent, but if you are planning a fancy date night go on a night when there are no activities at the ballpark. I do recommend this restaurant for everyone though. Great food selection!"

  • "We met another couple at CRAVE for a dinner during the weekend. The Reds were out of town so we figured it would be less busy. Unfortunately our server seemed less than thrilled to be helping us. I don't think she was overly busy because our section was fairly empty. I truly try to give servers the benefit of the doubt in most instances but this was beyond having an off day. She was confused by the appetizer order, failed to sub my asparagus as requested, and was noticeably irritated when we had to ask for refills. My girlfriend had to sent her ribeye back because it arrived well done instead of medium. The manager handled it brilliantly but the server continued her bad attitude. Kitchen, staff, and management were all on different pages."

  • "We've been to Crave about 6 times - always a safe bet for good food and service."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Great location, good service, good food. However the $40 crab encrusted filet mignon that I ordered medium came out medium well. The server graciously offered to get me another steak. Not wanting to wait, I declined and ate the steak as was. The sauce was fabulous. The steak was good, but was not as tender as medium would have been. My friend's came out correctly but she didn't like that the edges were a little burnt. Asparagus was good. The buttermilk mashed potatoes seemed a little watery. Portion size was good. Bread was put on our table though did not ask for bread, and was charged $1.95 for it. I will likely give it another try."

  • "We had reservations just before a Reds game and were running late due to accidents on I 71. I called and told them and they said "No Problem" we were only 5 minutes late thank goodness. They had us a table with a great view. Our male server was very funny and knew the menu. All of our food was good, SURPRISE!!!!THIS HAS NEVER HAPPENED TO MY FAMILY LOL"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Went to Crave for the first time before a Red's game. Making our reservation online was great, seated right away, & the food was delicious! Our waiter was super friendly & gave great recommendations. A little pricey, so not an everyday meal for us, but nice when we want to splurge."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Great service, excellent beer selection, great sushi, location is perfect for before/after a Red's game! Can't wait to go back for a filet soon!"

  • "Recently went to Brunch with 4 friends, we were able to sit and talk at the table and did not feel rushed. Great place for brunch."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "Great selections for brunch, a real value at just $20 a person. I've been to a lot of places for a lot of brunches and theirs is by far the best. Way too loud in there though, pop music blaring at brunch is a little unpleasant."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "Service was very attentive, and the food was good when it arrived. Kitchen was slow, but it was a home baseball game so they were quite busy. We will certainly be back- overall it was a positive experience."

  • "Make reservation and go before the Reds game. The Ahi Tuna was average. everything else was very good. Sushi boat made a good appetizers for the family."

  • "Very good food..excellent service The mixture of sushi and other menu items assured everyone had desirable choices. The service was attentive and timely."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "The food was good but not worth the money. I know of a lot of restaurants in town that I could have gotten a better steak for less money. Ordered some Sushi for an app that was really good. I ordered a Rib-eye steak and it was cooked the way I ordered it but it came with plain mashed potatoes and a few broccoli raw. The steak was covered in a mushrooms sauce. My son ordered the Flat Iron steak which was better than the Rib-eye. My wife ordered pasta with chicken and my daughter ordered an Asian salad. Again the food was good but not great and overpriced. $ 160 for what? Good luck! I will not return."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Crave's brunch is great! It includes all of the usually, plus I like the fact that your omelet order is taken at the table and delivered to you. Service was excellent."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "We went to Crave before a concert. It was very crowded thus very noisy and hard to hear each other talk. Bar was so backed up that we ended up canceling last drink order. The food is always very good."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "The food was wonderful, however we had a terrible server. My friend's hamburger must have been sitting under a heating lamp for 15-20 minutes before we got our food. We never complained but were pleasantly surprised when the manager offered us a $30 gift card at the end of the meal."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Server was slow to bring water and drink order manager had to bring them over and apologize. Food was delayed over 30 mins then when served was wrong had to wait for correct food order. Server did not check on for more drinks until we called him. Over 3 hrs of dinner for over priced food and very poor service"
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "CRAVE failed at everything. It is next door to GABP. It is designed to handle large crowds before and after baseball games, football games, concerts etc. Upon entering, the hostess had trouble finding our reservation. Next they tried to seat 6 of us at a 4 top. Once seated at the correct table our server was completely overwhelmed. Our order of drinks took 20 minutes to deliver and once they arrived they were wrong. Wrong cocktails, wrong beers. Next round was wrong as well. We ordered sashimi, sushi rolls and pizza. The sashimi was not completely sliced, the rolls were poorly made, the pizza was ok. It was a very poor dining experience. CRAVE needs a management overhaul."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "They offer good deals on the CRAVE card . The fried calamair is excellent as are the tacos with Kimchi. The mahi-mahi was unremarkable. The win is run of mill and highly overpriced so I stick to the bourbon cocktails which are delicious. Service is outstanding."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "This establishment is certainly a bit over priced, but that is to be expected from its extreme proximity (literally across the street) from G.A.B. I am not saying it is exorbitantly expensive, but for what you're actually getting, it's definitely a wee bit high. On the upside, I love the seating and bar area layout - very smart. The service was solid. The food is good - the sushi is fairly normal, but well-executed. The menu is pretty gigantic; they might be well-served by cutting down its size, in fact. If you're in the immediate vicinity, or have a deal, this is a good option. Because of the location and iffy value, I wouldn't go out of the way."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "We love Crave before or after the Reds games. We love that they take reservations and they are always prompt and accommodating!! We enjoy dining outside and the consistently good food and service!!! Crave....it is the place to dine on game day!"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Went before Reds game for a good meal. Family liked the fact that we were right across from the entrance to the Reds stadium. Very busy and food coming out was slow but good food. Would go again but earlier to avoid waiting so long."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "My friend and I had a reservation for 5:15, but traffic was horrible and we didn't end up arriving until about 5:55. We had called at 5:15 to let them know that we were going to be late, but the standard amount of time you hold onto a table for someone in the restaurant industry is 30 minutes. They sat us promptly, although our booth request could no longer be fulfilled and we were sitting at a lone high top for two obviously pulled from actual table and almost in the middle of the main walkway by the sushi bar. However, this was completely understandable since we were 35 minutes late to our reservation. My friend and I had to leave by 6:45 to go to the opera, and they got us out right on time without sacrificing wonderful service."

  • "Crave was fun with a great server and the food was very good. We sat at a high top in the bar and enjoyed a wonderful evening."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "The service was horrible. They forgot our appetizer so we got it AFTER our dinners were delivered (they did not charge us for it). My son ordered chicken on his macaroni & cheese and they forgot the chicken (brought some chicken on a plate and dumped it in his mac & cheese). When dinner was over, they brought the bill and it had an item on there that we didn't even order (waitress had no idea what it was, so took it off). Best part, as the waitress was cleaning up the table she spilled au jus down my back on my new dress! She said she was sorry but that was it. Our Father's Day dinner was awful and I would not recommend this place or go back."

  • "We had a great time at Crave. The food was yummy and so was the sangria. We tried a couple of things to share and both were delicious. The beef tacos and crispy chicken sliders were our choices."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We celebrated Father's Day with the all-you-can-eat prime rib special. My husband is a prime rib lover and, in his opinion, this was one of the best prime ribs he's had (juicy, tender, well-prepared top quality beef). We found the wines to be good value too (we ordered 2 bottles of the Louis Martini cab from Sonoma). Our server Chelsea was delightful."

  • "Crave does a great job for Sunday Brunch. I brought my dad and family down for Fathers Day and everyone had a great time. The service was great and the food was very tasty. Everyone loved the desserts!"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "The brunch was pretty good. I feel like you should be able to have more than one omelet. You also had to ask for certain items that should have been on the buffet/at the table (salt, ketchup, syrup, etc.) They seemed really busy so the service could have been better. Some of the food was a little cold as well. Overall, a pretty decent time. The restaurant itself was very beautiful and set up very nice!"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We've been to Crave twice. The food has been decent both times, but the service has been poor to middling. Both times we have been there it has been a Sunday. Their website advertises that children eat free on Sundays. The first time we asked, got a snotty remark, but our child's meal was taken off our bill. The second time we were told that this was only available after 4pm. (Didn't say so on their website.) But whatever, I wasn't going to argue about $6. Bottom line - servers have been snappy and rude (1st visit) and pleasant but not very helpful (2nd visit). Neither time we were there was Crave very busy, so that can't be a reason for the problems with the service."
