  • "Came before the appetizers and the price of the food is too high compared to the size of the plate. The only good was food."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Worst experience ever. Several items we ordered were not available, fish and chicken was dry, food was cold. We send it back and came Lukewarm. No food was remarkable and e pensive for what it was."

  • "I went to dinner with friends and sat inside. The Miami Heat game was on, and was very loud. We asked for the volume to be lowered and it was. The food was just okay. I had a whole snapper and it had a lot of bones. Another friend had the Mahi Mahi, and said it was okay too. I guess, I am willing to give it another try in the future."

  • "After receiving a coupon by mail to Crave where you ordered one entree and got the other free, my husband and I decided to finally give it a try. Our server was great, she was pleasant and very helpful and attentive. My husband ordered the boneless whole snapper and I ordered the pan roasted saebass. My husband was disappointed to find bones in his snapper making him not finish his plate and my plate was okay. We mentioned the fact of the bones in the snapper to our server and she was very apologetic and brought it up to the manager. The manager stopped by our table, gave a mediocre explanation, and went on his way. Not only did I think he lacked managerial experience and empathy, but the food as a whole was overpriced for the taste."

  • "Half way through my meal, a waitress approaches me and asks how my burger is. I said good. She says.."well it's the lamb burger." Similar thing happened to the table next to us. They gave their foot to another table. My wife and I counted 20 workers, 35 diners, and 4 hostesses. The manager was walking around and looked hip. But failed to notice my pregnant wife's empty water glass. He did make sure to help the 4 hostesses though. Our server had 8 tables was running around trying to make sure everything was ok. A couple came and sat at another table and left after 10 minutes because no one had taken their drink order. With 20 people on the floor the service should have been much better. Food was good but I will not be going back."

  • "Made reservations for a party of 10 and when we arrived we were seated right away. The servers were great they even out the playoff game for us and took of the music so we can hear the game.platesxare actually very food portion sizes. Drinks a little pricey but delicious and it's merrick park. "

  • "The waitress took forever to come to our table and when she finally did, she was very nonchalant about taking the order. She took forever once more after the food was served and even longer to refill our drinks. When we asked for the dessert menu, she just set it on the table and didn't even tell us anything. I'm used to servers giving recommendations about desser or at least to explaining what each dessert has. The hosts also look at you up and down before sitting you down -- they should be the last ones judging given that they have to show their legs to make a living. I liked the happy hour prices but I doubt I'll be coming back! "

  • "Went to Crave to celebrate my birthday with a big group. Manager was super cool and when I didn't like the table they'd set up for us, he immediately made different accomodations to please me. I really appreciated that! Food was great, drinks were great, had a lovely time!!!"
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "We decided to take our niece to Sunday dinner and it was a complete disappointment. Service was awful, the Tuna which I ordered was bad, meaning the fish smelled which tell you that it was not fresh and had to send it back. The Burger was also not very tasteful and the Prime Rib was not what was expected. Too bad, as the first time, we had no problems with the food, but had problems with the bar. We do not expect to return nor recommend to anyone."

  • "We were a party of 7 celebrating our daughter's graduation from University of Miami. Despite the size of our group, we were seated promptly (we had made a reservation) and the staff were very helpful. All of our food was great, including the calamari appetizer and creme brulee dessert. Wonderful place to go with a group."

  • "I hosted a small baby shower celebration for 20. They gave us our table and an extra one for the cake and gifts. The server Hector was very helpful explaining the menu and seperated the checks without even asking. Food was very good and everyone had a great time. The guys hanged out at the outdoor bar and had a good time. Definitely a place in my list to gather groups. Thank you all so much for taking care of us :)"

  • "We went to Crave for Mother's Day brunch and we found it very good. Many tasty choices and friendly service. We could sit outside as we had requested. Excellent price-quality relationship. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "They bait and switched with their supposed "Mother's Day special" at $32.95 per adult instead of the regular brunch rate of $17.95 per adult. It was not worth the charge!"
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "We have visited CRAVE a few times and each time we are pleased with the food and service. This was our 2nd brunch and it was much improved over last year. The food and selections were plentiful and tasteful. We enjoyed every facet of the experience."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "We had heard a lot about Crave and it's food. They were right. The food was delicious and there was a great variety on the menu. The service left a lot to be desired. Although it was Mothers Day, by the time we went the restaurant was not full. Our waitress seemed lost. Food didn't come out in the right order for our table. She looked a little spaced out. I would go back for the food but the service needs to improve. "

  • "We brought a group of 16 people of all ages to a graduation lunch on a Saturday afternoon, and we couldn't have made a better choice. The food choices were exceptional and the service was outstanding. Everyone was happy! Would definitely recommend."

  • "The food and atmosphere was very good and comfortable but the service was very, very,very slow."

  • "We sat outside on a warm Miami night. I ordered a salad because the waitress said the trout didn't come with veggies. To my pleasant surprise it came with a sizeable portion of delicious asparagus (not the 3 spears you usually get). The trout in lemon and caper was delicious. My partner's churrasco steak glazed in teriyaki sauce was also delicious and well done the way he ordered it. We shared a coconut layer cake which was also a hit. Everything was yummy."

  • "Sat outside for Easter brunch. Great outdoor dining. Staff was super friendly "
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "I made an advanced Reservation for Easter Brunch for my family. We are a family of 5 with 3 kids. The atmosphere was nice and I loved the fact that the Easter Brunch buffet was ready and all we had to do was sit down, order drinks and head over to the buffet. The price for the kids was comparable at $12.95. My oldest probably ate $12.95 worth but my 2 little ones did not. I wish I would have got a shared plate for them. But regardless, for the parents (or adults) I can say the food was delicious. There was a variety of light fare, cheeses, heavier hot dishes and crispy bacon. Also, I was able to have a Chocolate Martini and could just sit back and RELAX on a beautiful Easter afternoon Sunday. I would recommend this Easter Brunch!"

  • "Though I had a bad experience at Crave a year ago, the Easter brunch was outstanding. The outdoor dining was wonderful and the weather beautiful. The food was good and the choices were plentiful. Overall all great food and ambience for an excellent price. Definitely will return next year. Crave redeemed itself from my previous poor experience. I don't believe that there was a better choice for Easter brunch at Crave's price last week in town. "

  • "Loved the food. Service was fantastic! We ate a variety of small plates including Bamboo rolls, Cheese balls, Caprese salad flatbread, Sliders and Ceviche sample. The drinks were good too and don't forget about dessert. Our S'mores brownie was perfect. And I can't forget to mention our waitress, Yelenny (I think that's how you spell her name). She gave great recommendations and was extremely friendly. Service like that doesn't come often. I was presently surprised by my entire experience and I look forward to returning!"

  • "Outdoor dining is very nice. Indoor seating area was empty which was strange. Feel the food was a bit overpriced. Service was a bit slow, but server was nice the soda was flat and tasted odd. When brought to servers attention was told, she was aware, the machines are not working well.. Then offered the more expensive house made sodas. ( why would you not tell us this prior to bringing soda)? Nothing grand, except nice outdoor dining, very family/kid friendly. Many kids in restaurant and surrounding mall. "

  • "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."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "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."
