Diner Reviews
  • "This is an excellent spot. We have taken visitors to Crave and it is one of our Gables favorites."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "This was my third visit for their Sunday Brunch. The first two times were decent. This most recent visit was not. We had a large party and we were the first and only guests that Sunday morning (they had just opened). The hostess and server were both pleasant. Most of the guests ordered the brunch and everyone who did was disappointed. The eggs were squishy and wet. They almost seemed like powdered eggs gone wrong. The other items for brunch were ok but nothing to write home about. Unfortunately the eggs left a bad taste and we won't return for brunch again. We were the only party and I would think they could have paid more attention to the food that was being served."

  • "Nice, varied menu, food very tasty. Had the Chef's Tasting Plate so was able to try many items, but service was a bit slow. It was 20 minutes after I sat down before the salad was served, and only after I asked the waiter what was taking so long, it came out a minute later. My Friday evening reservation was honored as we were seated as soon as we got there. I would probably try it again as it may just have been an over-worked waiter."

  • "the food was very good but the service was terrible, both drinks from the bar and food service. a shame..."

  • "We sat inside. The dining room is spacious and appealing. But unfortunately it seems like the management only cares about the outside. The menu is too large, causing them to be out of two of the items we ordered. The food , in general, was good except for the spring rolls recommended by our waitress, which were inedibly bad. Service and management were weak here, seemed like they were understaffed (on Saturday night?) dirty glasse covered the bar, flat soda, all little things like that that would keep me from returning to or recommending Crave."

  • "We were thrilled when we saw the extensive menu. The prices were high, but we weren't concerned until the small portions came out! Although the menu sounded interesting, we did not find the food to be too tasty- it lacked flavor and seasoning. The wine list was long but the server was very pushy on some new Washington wines. We decided to try a few glasses - she said it is her favorite and a deal at $8.95 a glass. The wine was just OK but the bill was $2.00 more a glass than she said it was. There were other wines that I would have preferred for that price. The wait staff kept disappearing which was annoying to have to search for them when you needed something. The outside area is very nice but not nice enough for a return trip."

  • "Nice for a large group, party of 8, sitting outside during happy hour. Many delicious appetizers to choose from. I recommend the sliders, pizza with grapes, chicken tacos, hummus.....the list goes on. We were never rushed for our table. If you go early you still have time to shop afterward."

  • "The service was amazing and the waiter was extremely atentive I would most definetly come back to enjoy another meal."

  • "Nice restaurant for oustide seating. It's a shame that the rest of the mall closes so early"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Our dinner order on the menu was going to cost 14.95 for an item but you charged 24.95 for that item. Your excuse for the BAIT AND SWITCH price was we gave you the wrong menu. NO longer a happy customer"

  • "Slow service, cold steak and not cooked properly. They remade it and that took another 20 minutes, my family was not able to eat together due to this. They comped it but really would have preferred it properly made."

  • "A group of my friends (and two babies) went to brunch on an early Sunday afternoon. We are very glad we chose Crave! Tons of yummy food for a vveerryy reasonable price. Reloadable brunch platter for $16. And that included a glass of champagne. The platter had tons of yummy stuff on it, but lets be honest- it was the cinnamon bun French toast that sold me. The service was phenomenal . Our server Maria was very attentive and didn't seem annoyed by the babies one bit. No that shouldn't matter but I have received (and given when I was a server, sorry moms) bad service because of children being in tow. Devon was the manager and visited our table and played with us and was such a charmer. We had a wonderful time and will be back!"

  • "We are from Minnesota and are able to visit many of the Crave sites in Mpls. However, this was a super experience. The food was fantastic, the service outstanding. It was myself, my wife, my daughter and my 18 month Grandson. We all enjoyed ourselves immensely. The General Manager, Mario stopped by and chatted and made the night even more memorable."

  • "My first time at CRAVE was recently on a Friday night. We met some friends for Happy Hour. This great little Gem in the Gables at Merrick Park is perfect for a casual setting with your favorite people! We got a table outside at the patio. Service was excellent (our waiter ALEX) was super fun & entertaining! Food was excellent. Happy Hour prices were great, although the well drinks were a little watered down (gotta work on those Bartenders). Great Night with Friends! Highly recommend stopping at CRAVE for a relaxing night out!"

  • "This is one of my favorite restaurants by far. Every time I come the service and food are both great. Living in Miami, you usually get one and not the other. A little pricey and far from home, that's why we only come maybe 3 times a year. We came on Valentine's and the restaurant was able to handle the large crowd with ease."

  • "Loved the food service was great a very romantic unforgettable night overall thanks to this place"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. The service was the only good thing there. The food is way too over priced and the quality is fair at best. Not worth the money."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We went on a double date with friends and got the samplers meal. The boys had fish and we had chicken. Our chicken was fabulous but the fish plates were small and the rice cold. Overall, it was good and I would probably go back for the chicken and sangria."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "I was surprised at the location and the size of the inside and outside seating. The food was unique, a mix of Asian fusion and Americana. The wait staff and bartenders were polite and helpful."
    Dined on 2/3/2014
  • "the food was good and service was very good. however, this is MIAMI!! it was very, very hot in the restaurant and the server said she would tell the manager but nothing was ever done, it continued to be hot and we had to fan ourselves!!!"

  • "The waitress was excellent and the food was good, but I have a complaint. I visit this restaurant because I got a $100 Crave gift card for Christmas and the restaurant didnt' accept the card because it was decilned even though I show the gift receipt. The manager only told me that it was declined and I he did't even showed me a receipt of $0 balance for the card. I will not go to this restaurant again and my friend will filed a claim also."

  • "Alex was our waiter for a party of 7 and we had a great time. He was very attentive and entertaining."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "Although I love the food and the ambiance it is not good for a large group. This was my second group event where things got miscommunicated and commitments made were not honored. Be aware but enjoy for lunch or dinner with friends otherwise and when you have time to relax and enjoy."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "I really liked the place. The service was very good, but we noticed that the waitress was working by herself, so we had to ask her a glass of water. It took her a while to bring it. Overall she was great. I loved both the inside and the outside of the restaurant. Thanks !"

  • "We were there on the rare Miami night when sitting outdoors was preferred. The staff couldn't have been nicer and the food was very good. Definitely will return"

  • "Crave was an outstanding choice for dinner. Great bar menu and also dinner menu. My girlfriend and I totally enjoyed our experience. Would recommend to friends and family."

  • "Too expensive for what it is... 6 slices of raw tuna for 13 $ is very exp"
    Dined on 12/23/2013
  • "The service quality was significantly reduced the past couple of times we visited this place. Also to note that they do not have a computer to check you in any more on the front garden entrance (used to have before), and we almost lost our "opentable" points, as we have to insist to check our reservation instead of just giving us a table. Otherwise food was good, but service slow."
    Dined on 12/22/2013
  • "Reservation via opentable not registered. The restaurant used to have a computer connection in the front entrance by the outdoor area. This time computer was not available, and although we said that we had a reservation they never checked our name."

  • "We went to Crave and had the Sunday Brunch special. Ample portions, good service, very friendly. The brunch selection is nice and it is all you can eat, a little something for all pallets. I also noticed that pets are welcome in the outdoor area and my wife and I enjoyed breakfast with two terriers next to us."

  • "We went on a Thursday night around 7.30. The room looks like a NY restaurant, but without the people. There were at most 30 people in a space that could accomodate 150 or more. There is also a nice patio outside. The food was typical big place, big menu fare. It was okay but not worth the higher than average price. The waiter was attentive but ditzy. I ordered a (forgettable) main course salad. My husband ordered a caprese salad appetizer & tuna as a main couse. The caprese came first and was pretty good. Then, the waiter brought my salad but instead of the main course tuna entree, he brought my husband the tuna salad. Really? Did he really think my husband would order two salads for dinner? I've never seen a man do that. . ."

  • "The food was not as good as I expected. Three of the four meals ordered at my table were salty."
    Dined on 9/13/2013
  • "My husband and I really enjoyed Crave. The food was delicious, we had lots of sushi. We loved the dessert sushi, that was a treat. The staff was so nice and friendly. We plan on returning and already told all of friends to check it out as well."

  • "I loved this place. Stephanie was a great server. Energetic, happy, friendly, knowledgeable, the ideal server. The entire staff was friendly and the manager was very visible. He even came to our table."

  • "Crave is always great. We like the location at Merrick Park, the food is superb. We ordered different dishes this time, rather than our "usual" Best ever."
