Diner Reviews
  • "I was meeting 6 friends form out of state for a show at the Orpheum. I've been to 2 other Crave locations so I knew the location, price point, and extensive menu would suit everyone and I wasn't wrong! Energetic and fun staff and great food. And everyone LOVED the wings! The only thing bad things was the noise level. We were a table of 6 and I could only hear the person across from me or next to me. Since this was a group of friends I hadn't seen in over a year, it would have been nice to have a conversation together instead of shouting across the table."

  • "The food was good, the services was great they treat you great and friendly too. There wasn't much noise you can heard your group conversation, best part was the dessert my friends and me we love the place location, services and the food was just a good night. "

  • "I had Mahi Mahi with asparagus and couscous. The fish tasted like a frozen fillet (poor quality) and the asparagus was small and dehydrated . The couscous tasted like what we get out of a box at home. Nothing tasted fresh or interesting."

  • "we had a short but nice visit at Crave. we had a 6:30 reservation and because wer are not familiar with Minneapolis- ended up on the wrong side of the bride and Hennepin Avenue. so with that, we were 45 minutes late getting to the restaurant. There was a Twins game the same time, so Mpls was crazy. we got there and the staff was excellent- we only had about 20 mintues before our show started, so ordered something quick and easy and we got it fairly quickly along with a much needed drink. I wish we could have stayed longer and enjoyed it all but had to get to the show. Thanks to the staff for being understading on us being late- they were all very friendly!"

  • "We only saw our waiter a few times and rarely got refills. It took 45 minutes for our cooks to be cooked an it was still bad. My chicken was burnt and unflavorful."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Mediocre food and a kitchen that was painfully slow due to understaffing. An unpleasant experience overall."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "I like a social atmosphere, but this bordered on being a little bit too much. There were at least three occasions during our meal where there were loud outbursts from obviously intoxicated patrons. This is obviously not the fault of the restaurant, but it does detract from the dining experience. Our food was good, service was slow but they offered us a free cup of soup during our wait. Our visit was on a Saturday night, and this restaurant was the only restaurant in the area that had seating available at our time."

  • "Food was pretty good but we almost missed our show because it took so long for it to arrive. Really no good excuse for that."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "Every time I'm in Minneapolis I must stop at CRAVE. Great sushi and American plates to satisfy any diner."

  • "We went on a Friday night to celebrate my dad's birthday. Our waiter was short with us, we were unimpressed. My husband and dad ordered different beers, both of which they were out of. We had a party of 6, and ordered tacos as an appetizer with one extra as the waiter suggested. When the tacos came out, there were 4. We should have gotten 2 orders, or just the standard order and cut each taco in half. The first 2 items my husband ordered they were out of. On a Friday night! His final order had to sub out flatbread for pizza crust because they were out of that too! The waiter didn't notice that my food didn't come out but the water gal did. They did comp us a desert. Overall, our waiter was sub par. The food they did have was excellent"

  • "We had a great time at Crave. Our reservation request was totally spot on . We had a 5:15 reservation and asked for a booth . We requested this as we were attending the Timberwolves game. We arrived and were seated right away and in a booth as requested. As far as service goes it was top notch! I think our servers name was Britney ,she was awesome very attentive and personable. Now for the food... WOW . The Hawaiian poke was just as good as being in Hawaii getting the real deal! Everything else was presented and prepared perfectly. This is a must go to restaurant ."

  • "Our waitress was lovely and the food was yummy. I had the veggie sushi which was delicious and my husband had the herb-crusted walleye which was excellent. The menu is terrifically varied."
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "We always like to come to Crave before the musicals at the Orpheum. We usually order appetizers and they are very good. the drinks are very good and the service of the waiters is very good. They are always cognizant of the fact that we are going to a musical at 2pm and they provide good service so we are always on time. I request a table in the sushi area and this is nice because it gives us a nice table and it is also more private."

  • "Crave is one of my go to restaurants - every location. The MOA location is aleways fun as is this one in LaSalle Plaza. Great food, wonderful service."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "The service and food was excellent. All around a great experience."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "A big portion of the restaurant is comprised of high top tables and chairs. For those that have short legs, it is very uncomfortable. That is the only complaint I had. Everything else was great."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Food was great, but service was pretty slow during lunch. I recommend getting your check when your food arrives."
    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "The good news is that they have a good menu and you should be able to find something you like. They had a lot of servers, but they didn't seem very focused on giving good service. The bus staff did a good job of keeping water glasses filled, but, for example, I never got a refill on iced tea. Empty cocktail glasses stayed on tables forever. Cocktails were not consistent--same cocktail first time was very sour, very sweet second time. Food was okay--Sushi was prepared well, but nigiri portions are smaller compared to most sushi restaurants. I actually liked that the rice portions were small, but the fish portions seemed smaller."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Food was okay, but not great. My server was charming & attentive at first. Then it was obvious that his tables were all over the restaurant & there was no way he could keep up. What kind of management is that? After waiting over 30 minutes for my check, I found a manager so I could pay and leave. Shame on you, managers!"
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "Staff was flexible in allowing our group to move to a happy hour table instead of regular dining, and the server was willing to accommodate our changing group size as people arrived later."
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "Burger was a little raw and left me with some stomach issues. Everyone else enjoyed their meals and said they were delicious."
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "Our server was great... checked on us frequently and was friendly to give suggestions about the menu. My one "complaint" would be that we made a reservation, and were put at a noisy table right next to and facing the kitchen. I would've preferred feeling more "in" the restaurant, especially because we made a reservation the day before."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "I tried the chicken/apple/brie sandwich and it was delicious! A wonderful change of pace from my normal burger. My foodie friend tried the lamb burger and said that was outstanding also. Service was prompt and friendly - a wonderful lunch experience."
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "Food was very good. Service was excellent and lots of people on Saturday night."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Food was good, server was knowledgeable about drinks and food. And he made you feel special and was very nice."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "We decided to catch a bite at Crave to celebrate my birthday. We ended up getting a few different sushi rolls along with appetizers followed by desserts. All of the food and drinks were excellent but the service left something to be desired. It wasn't exactly busy when we were there, and yet our server would just be gone for 15-20mins at a time. We asked for a minute so we could pick dessert and turned out he thought we said 10 minutes. I'm sure the service is usually better then what we had, so I would give them another chance."

  • "Our first date was great. Thank you Open Table & thank you Crave."
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "Server was very nice and attentive. The food was very good and the menu had a wide variety of unique and delicious items. The atmosphere was nice and calming good for a date. I would recommend this."

  • "Our group of 10 enjoyed sitting at the oval shaped booth which allowed us to all hear each other when we conversed. Great food, great service."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "This was our 2nd time. First was busy, this time a quiet Sunday. Service was great both times. Food was really good. I am personally not an adventurous eater so I would like to see more variety for my tastes."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "Excellent food, good not great service. The location is poorly designed. We had to walk through the serving area to reach the more formal dining area. There was a table of 12 or more squeezed into the hallway area near the bathroom. There was not even room to walk by when the waiter was taking orders. More than half the seating is on bar height chairs and tables in the bar area. It is probably a fun spot for drinks and appetizers."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Food and service was very good. I would definitely go back. The soup and sushi was excellent."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Booked a table here for dinner before a show. Sushi was great, but the server brought out our intended appetizer with our entrees. Kinda disappointing when we wanted a little to eat with our drinks beforehand. Besides that, we enjoyed it."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "We wanted a lighter evening meal and the menu offers great variety. Salad and sushi for two of us, soup and burger for Dad, all excellent! Beautiful presentation of the very tasty winter caprese salad. Aloha sushi was perfect! Cocktails looked interesting, although we stayed with the nice selection of wine. Recommend reservations."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "By 10:50 p.m. on a Friday night this crew was tired and their attitude was fair at best. I have eaten at two other CRAVE locations and expected the superior service, attention to detail, and attitude of people who take pride in working for this company. None of those expectations were met. I used Open Table to make reservations thinking it would be crazy busy. It was nearly empty and rather quiet. I thought with it being so quiet I would get great service. The dinner menu was closed. I was planning on eating that meal. The bar menu was very limited. The host, wait staff, and the manager on duty behaved as if it was a big inconvenience for me and my date to be there. I am so disappointed in the service that I cannot recommend this place."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "I'm a foodie that appreciates a good, honest restaurant. Crave is known for its sushi, though the sushi is over priced and average in quality. Other menu items are reasonably priced, interesting, and fairly good. Service wasn't bad, but was a little slow when it wasn't very busy. Cool atmosphere; beautiful lighting, decor, furniture, and artwork. Also fairly energetic with upbeat music."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "We like coming here before the musicals at the Orpheum. We usually have the appetizers, but last time we had sushi ad that too was good. There is a lot of variety on the menu. The driinks are always good. We always get a table in the sushi area and It is quiet."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Very good food and many choices. Some of the prices seemed a bit high."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "The food was excellent. I service of the food, taking away plates etc. was very good. The weak link in the chain was the refilling of drinks, waiting for a mixed drink from bar, and the refilling of water glasses. Many of the seating options are rather high stools. My feet were dangling and I found it very uncomforatable."
