  • "Great location and excellent service. Will definitely return soon!"
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "Everything was good from the food to service was good. Very nice out door atmosphere with beautiful; view."
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "Weather was great, atmosphere was fun and our service was excellent. It's not the first time we've been to crave and it won't be the last. Sitting outside doesn't provide you the luxury of the entire menu but our server was willing to make a special trip downstairs for my gal to her her favorite veggie roll. Service above and beyond which was very nice. We will be back."

  • "We had a party of 9 and service was fast. Drinks were great and everyone loved the food"
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "I don't write many reviews, but went to Crave before a show at 6:00 PM, and the service was one of the worst experiences I've had in a long time. It was not busy but the waiter seemed like he just didn't want to be there. Took his time responding to our needs but had plenty of time to chat with the other servers who were standing around as well. Could have been an isolated experience, but if I'm looking for great service, I will look elsewhere! Good news, the food was great as usual!"
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "The service was excellent and the food was really tasty and good! The root top patio is amazing and such a great atmosphere. I will definitely go back and recommend to family and friends."
    Dined on 8/15/2014

    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "Dined on roof top thinking it might be nice atmospherse since beautiful night, however not the case. Thinking dining indoors might have had atmosphere I was looking for. Service awful, server was NOT personable by any means. My hubby requested water w/ his beverage twice & took forever for the server to bring it. My meal forgotten about, apparently GF order got sent to different kitchen w/ no notes stating goes w/ other dishes, waited 10min after hubby meal came. Mnager brought meal, apologized, compt meal. Hubby thought his was good, mine less than desireable esp for the $ & the sides were cold.Also ordered another drink, server came back to the table (no drink in hand) asked if we were ready for the check. Yes, yes by that time we were."
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "Horrible service. Everyone around us was ticked. We were all missing appetizers and complete meals. There servers were awful and the management too. I wouldn't recommend anyone to go there!"
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "Although the view and feel of the rooftop is great, the lunch selection for food seems so limited. Would be beneficial to offer a soup/salad combo or be able to get favorites from Crave that you can only get at the bottom of the rooftop stairs."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "We went to CRAVE at the recommendation of the concierge at the nearby Marriott, who had a really interesting looking menu and described a great rooftop setting. When we arrived for our 7:30 reservation we found that it was really two restaurants. The interesting ambitious menu was in the downstairs, indoor restaurant. The beautiful rooftop spot is really a bar/restaurant with a much less ambitious menu, a 25 minute wait for a table, a great view and a noisy, high-energy buzz. The food was good but not great. Server was a great guy"
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "We had reservations for CRAVE the night of the Paul McCartney concert and it was crazy! You could see that all the servers and the kitchen was swamped. Everything was very slow so patience was the name of the game."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "The food was good - not great, but good. Service was ok; waiter could have been more outgoing. Lighting is poor - it was very hard to read the menu. Prices are high, but we expected that. CRAVE used to be Palomino and I had eaten there a few times. In my opinion, that was a better restaurant."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "We sent back a slightly too rare mahi-mahi and they lost it in the kitchen. A brand new filet arrived 10 minutes later and was about as rare. Then we waited another 10 minutes to get the bill processed and rushed out of there to beat the crowds into the field. The concert was memorable, the sprinkles were sporadic and Paul as seen from the 15th center section row was GREAT. All events considered, we will visit you again and I'll make sure Ronda does not order the mahi-mahi again. (I'm the only one who likes seared ahi or carpaccio.) I ended up helping here with her entree but next time I WILL have another go about with your miso sea bass which was superb!!"
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "We got seated right away after making a reservation in advance for 10 people. There were several other large parties around that got seated after us, but their servers seemed more sttentive and they got drinks, food, and bills all before we did."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "We started early at the roof top deck and went down for supper before our show. It was perfect."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "We had a great time at Crave on the rooftop. The food was excellent, we had Guacamole and Chips, Spicy Salmon Roll, Caribbean Jerk Chicken, and Grilled Mahi Mahi. Everything was amazing!"
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Service was great. Lots of staff available. Food selection was mediocre. Margarita pizza was tasteless, but crave burger was delicious. Service was quick. Would have loved to have eaten on the patio, but unfortunately someone had bought it out earlier in the evening. Beer selection was disappointing."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Went with the middle Sushi boat. Really good selection and excellent rolls came with it. Defiantly worth the price."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Based on an earlier experience at Crave, we, and two friends, returned for a light dinner and drinks prior to a concert at Target Center. This was our first time on the roof and it was thoroughly enjoyable. Beautiful day, light breeze, great ambiance, perfect! The staff couldn't have been friendlier. The sushi was was well presented and very tasty....even for those who were first timers. The mixed drinks had a proper pour. The craft beer was truly appreciated. Well done!"
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "I had lunch with a friend during the week. It was a perfect day, with nice views from the roof-top patio. Our server was excellent. Nice selection of items (they had a sushi special going at the time, too). Very relaxing, yet quick and attentive service."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "It was my birthday so my two girlfriends and I went down to Crave to have dinner. The night started off with us having to run through the rain to get to the restaurant because we did not realize there was a skyway that leads into the building Crave is in. There are skyways basically everywhere in the city, so before heading out in the rain or snow, check your parking ramp or building you are coming from for a skyway. Once we were in the restaurant (sopping wet I must add), the food was great but our waiter seemed to have a lot of tables to wait on. His service was very slow, it took about 25 minutes from the time we got the check to the time we got out the door. However, I would recommend this restaurant due to good location and food."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "I am a Crave loyalty and regular customer. On July 4th we went for drinks at the bar while we waited for an outdoor table. I paid for the drinks as I went but the bartender double charged me, then had to refund my card. Got the table and service was super slow. understandable but he was also dancing with girls at the bar so not just a busy night. When I went to pay and use my Loyalty $15 off reward, was told my bill didn't meet the speeding limit and no interest in including what I had spent at the bar. Had to go to a manager who informed me they were busy due to the holiday. Doesn't July 4th happen every year? How did that catch you buy surprise. Ultimately gave me a gift card. NOTE: CANNOT SEE MPLS FIREWORKS FROM THIS ROOFTOP"
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "I've always wanted to try Crave. My daughter wanted sushi for her birthday, but my son doesn't touch it. This was the perfect combination. The figs was fresh and well prepared, and the burger was just what the doctor ordered. Dion was a great server. Ask for him."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "We went to Crave for an office lunch recently. The weather was great, although a bit windy. We had a very attentive server. She was there when we needed her, but was not a bother. Drinks re-filled at appropriate times. She knew the menu. The patio menu is a little more limited than the main menu, but I ordered off the main menu and that was not a problem. The food was all very good. The fries were perfect."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "Great food, wonderful service and awesome atmosphere. Save room for s'mores dessert:))"
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "Burgers and chicken sandwiches are served on the best pretzel bun I have ever tasted. Tots with cinnamon sour cream are out of this world. Unfortunately the guacamole tasted like it was from Costco. Loved the rooftop patio but the elevator and rooftop lobby area filthy dirty and cluttered which almost made us leave. Glad we decided to stay for the sandwiches. They were great."
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "It was very noisey. We switched tables twice to find a less noisey spot and found some relief on the third try. There was also a distinctive smokey, fried food smell in the air which lingered in my clothes."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Had a nice evening on the roof top deck. However when we specifically asked the hostess to try to sit us a bit further from the loud music speakers she agreed. But instead of taking us to tables further away, she sat us next to, not 1 but 2 blaring speakers! Kind of annoying and funny at the same time. Wish it would have not been quite so loud as I was meeting an out of town friend who I hadn't seen in years and it was difficult to catch up and hear each other. Food was fine but we didn't realize that you didn't have access to the full menu on the roof top. Would have loved a bit more selection but we still would go back."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "I've had a feeling that Crave is getting a little too big for it's britches. Especially the downtown location. The food is ok but it definitely doesn't warrent the high prices. The servers are always very nice but he the host/hostesses are very eliteist and very unfriendly."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Great rooftop!! We come to this location at least once a week!"
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "My friends and I have eaten here once and enjoyed our experience. However, we decided to try out the rooftop. What a great spot on a summer evening before the play. However, the service was not good. Drinks were slow to come, food order was wrong, fries were ice cold, and food was just set down on the treble. Debating if we'll ever go back."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "Nothing better in the summer, we went during the afternoon, not a lot of servers on and very sunny! Food is always excellent, wanted a specific item not on the bar menu, and server went yo resturant to get for us, very nice! Great Minneapolis views!"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • " Good food, good service, hostess was rude though."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Got caught in bad traffic and they were very accommodating to add fifteen minutes for our reservation. Friendly staff and great service. Our food was very good (had the Crave burger and it was cooked to perfection) and it arrived quickly so we had ample time to make it to a concert."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "Took a friend there who had never been. She now has a new favorite white wine. We had a couple of happy hour apps and sea bass. Everything was great."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "Would love the weather to cooperate for a night out on the rooftop. Still have not been up top."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "Made a reservation but was not notified that the restaurant section was closed. Bar area dining only. Sat at a goofy table by the escalators. this was embarassing as I set up the business diner. if not fully open on a Monday night then they should notify you."
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "This was a great find for us. We don't get to the metropolitan area too often, so it was wonderful to come in and have good service and tasty food."
