  • Great food but really loud
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008VIP
    Dined on 9/27/2014
    Starting off. everything we ordered was wonderful. If we were just going out for food this review would have six stars. Unfortunately we were going out for for and a time to connect. The resetraunt was really loud, too loud. After not being able to hear over people next to us we had to ask to be moved. There was a couple large parties for homecoming but they were the quiet groups. This is definitely not our 1st time and we will return but maybe on an off night.

    I ordered the lamb meatball dish and was very happy with it. I was in the mood for something different and thought it was very good, would order again. Although having said that I would also want to order some of their other entrees as well first. I tried my date's flatbread pizza and thought it too was very good. Their caesar salad features warm cheese croutons which were to die for, so tasty. Their chocolate cake with real whipped cream was also to die for. Very happy with the food. Our server could have been a bit more upbeat/enthusiastic and dishes cleared sooner than they were, but it was a busy night.

    1st you walk through a servers area to get to the dining room. When you are spending this kind of money this is really tacky. The noise level was so high that it was hard to hear your fellow diners. Wood ceiling, concrete floor, they need something to baffle the noise. menu interesting and the food was good. Our server, Irene was the best. I don't think I would go back to this Crave, maybe try a different location

    We met relatives from out of town at Crave and had a wonderful experience. Thoughtfully we were given an out of the way corner where we had great service, a delicious lunch and were able to visit for 3 1/2 hours! We will not hesitate to go there again.

    We understood the menu was brand new. Sadly missing was a tuna entree. The original ahi was outstanding, and the most recent was still close to the best entree on the menu. My wife and a friend loved the Crave salad as always, and I enjoyed the Poblano Caesar as well. The waitress took my silverware, but didn't replace it until a few minutes after the entrees arrived.I ordered the spicy ribeye special and my dining companions ordered the regular ribeye. We all ordered our steaks medium rare emphasizing we wanted them pink/red in the middle. Sadly two were medium well and mine was medium. We were offered dessert when we shared our comments. We have always loved this Crave, so an off night will not keep us aw

    I made an on-line reservation at Crave indicating I was gluten intolerant. We ordered 2 lobster and linguini's (regular pasta and one with rice noodles). When the food arrived, the waiter put both dishes in front of us. He didn't realize he had a gluten free dish and did not know which dish (gluten or not) to serve to the customer. I was also informed that last time I visited at happy hour, I was most likely served Opulent Vodka (not potato or gluten free vodka) without informing me, since gluten free vodka is more expensive and not offered at happy hour prices. I would not recommend this restaurant for gluten intolerant or individuals with celiac's disease. The waiters and restaurant do not seem to take gluten intolerances seriously.

    Had grass fed burger. Sounds good, right, esp since grass fed beef is tastier than traditional beef. Well, they put it on an overpowering rye bun (not mentioned on menu) with so much else that you can't taste the meat). Service was marginal and menu is unimaginative.

    Waiter let us sit with menus for over ten minutes, I needed to have the maitre d intercede but to no avail. The restaurant was nearly empty and there were other waiters milling around. It does not matter how good the food is if you are ignored and need to direct the staff to wait on you purposely.

    We enjoy crave because we can count on good food and service. I have one complaint. The last couple of times I have received a glass of wine where it is apparent that the glass itself has just been removed from the bar's dishwasher and the wine smells of dish soap/bleach. Please make sure your glasses are rinsed properly before serving a $12 glass of wine in them!

    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.
