    I have been to Crave several times. This experience was just so,so. We had the mahi mahi and it was very dry and we had to ask for extra salsa. Even that didn't help much. The tomato soup however was excellent as was the burger. A little expensive fir the quality.

    What a great variety of food with a wonderful atmosphere. My 17 year old daughter choose Crave for her birthday dinner. So fun to sit outside and the food was once again, excellent. Just a little different, but a good different. Really nice to sit outside on a summer night. Also like the rewards program and the easy Open Table reservations! We will be back.

    The best thing about our experience was the indoor/outdoor seating. If you have a group of people and some want to be outside and some inside, it is the perfect place to go as there is seating that is sort of half of each. The food and service were very good also. I was surprised there were not more people there!

    We were celebrating a few birthdays in a group. The restaurant was very quiet, not many tables filled at 11 on Sunday , we were seated and the server was attentive. A group of six with a small child was seated very close to us. The child shrieked and screamed pretty much nonstop during our brunch. It was piercing screams. Very disturbing to conversation. Food was good but one order was placed with hollandaise on the side and had to be redone, another order came without toast, until we asked for it. The server brought complimentary dessert for the bday celebrations, which was very nice. And our server was good about coffee and water refills. Lovely space. But all in all, I would not recommend it for brunch or breakfast.

    The sushi was very good, as were the drinks and service. But CRAVE is very expensive -- $172 with tip for dinner for two adults and two kids (ages 11 and 9). There are many places in Minneapolis to get less expensive sushi that is equally good.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 7/26/2014
    Our waitress was pleasant, but not very attentive (water glass asked for never came). We were a party with 2 kids; their meals were completely wrong.... Hungry kids = not an ideal situation. Service in general was extremely slow, and questions about allergens were not accurately answered. I decided not to risk ordering that item as I didn't have a high level of confidence that she knew what I was asking, and had conveyed it correctly to the kitchen. The meal itself - shrimp with pasta was over $20 and tasted like Lean Cuisine. Not worth the cost of the meal at all.

  • Terrible store manager on duty
    discretedinerVIP
    Dined on 7/24/2014
    The store manager on duty (7/24, 2-3pm) needs to be replaced immediately. He was not familiar with the Corporate Crave promotion & refused the appetizer redemption with entries purchased. This is the 2nd time on the roll. The other tables had the same issues. He also didn't honor the royalty program for items available in my account. The food was great (Tuna Poke and Chicken/Apple/Brie sandwich) with outstanding service from waitress Sheila; yet, the store management has been degraded significantly over time that requires immediate improvement.

    I had two business dinners at Crave Galleria this week. Both times the food was off. The Caprese Flatbread appetizer tasted flat (no pun intended). The coating on the walleye overpowered the fish and the chicken breasts were overdone to the point of being tough/dry. OK - maybe these choices don't hit their "sweet spot" for the food you go there to eat, but I expect Crave to have consistently well prepared and flavorful food delivery across their menu. Our server was helpful with wine/drink suggestions and the surroundings were great. Overall, better to look and drink than eat.

    Even though we made reservations, we still had to wait for a table. When one was finally available, the host gave it to someone else. Plus, when we did get seated, it took a very long time for my boyfriend to get his drink. I've been here before and the service is normally really good. Other than that, the service became better add the dinner went on and the food was delicious.

    A group of us met for HH and dinner, this was my first time to Crave! Our server seemed disinterested in taking our order due to it being HH. Then when we were ready to order one item was out that was on the HH menu and the 2nd item was also not available very disappointed! Then 2 of us ordered salads for dinner and I asked to add chicken to my salad, on my way back from the bathroom I heard a girl that was working the line complaining about our table being high maintenance because we ordered half from HH and then we added chicken to a salad? If you are going to discuss your customers you might not want to do it out in the open for them to hear! Overall the food we had was excellent but I expected the experience and service to be better!

    Apon arrival we were checked in and seated very quickly. We decided that we just wanted to do happy hour so we were seated in the bar. There were only hightop tables open. The tables are very hard to get in and out. We asked if we could be moved as soon as a booth opens up and they accommodated us very well. We ordered the blue and pink kinky mojitos. The blue was very sour and i dont recommend it. The HH cab was pretty good though. We had sushi and flatbreads from the HH menu. The blackened chicken flatbread was amazing. The service; however, was poor. After stopping our server to make our wine order right before HH ended it was a over a half hour before we saw our server, JoJo, again after she dropped off our wine.
