  • "The waitress was very friendly, but Service was slow. The drink orders were very slow. The beer was warm and the food was cold. The AC above us was dripping all night on our table and they didn't move us to another table. We complained to the waitres 3-4 times at one point my client asked for an umbrella. I was entertaining some clients from out of town and was very dark and loud in the restuarant and made it hard to communicate. We will not be going back any time soon."

  • "We dined at CRAVE after a recommendation from a local and it didn't disappoint. We had a fantastic server who never missed a beat and wasn't overly annoying - like most are. The food was exactly as described by friends and the waiter......GREAT!"

  • "Had a couple specialty sushi rolls. They were great and at a reasonable price."

  • "Crave has great food and service. We recently had lunch with three generations of women, and it was fun, but meaningful conversation is difficult because of the noise level. It is hard to carry on an extended conversation that includes everyone at the table. So, for dining when one only wants good food and idle conversation, it's great. Our server was gracious and attentive. The three teenagers had chosen the site. We adults, who would have appreciated an opportunity for meaningful conversation between the generations, left pleased with the food but a bit disappointed that this rare and precious time with generations was only about food and not about deeper fellowship."

  • "My wife and I have been there a number of times and have always loved it. This particular visit was for our 5th wedding anniversary. We had been given a gift card from my wife's parents and had made a reservation. We arrived about 30 minutes early and the hostess was happy to accommodate us while also telling us Happy Anniversary as well as any worker who came in contact with us. Our server was also nice enough to give us a complimentary dessert. The food was amazing as always. I got the crab crusted filet mignon and my wife got a special of the Enchanted Green Roll sushi which she describes as the best sushi she has ever had in her life. So many vibrant flavors. It was a truly amazing evening and we can't wait to celebrate there again."

  • "My family and I chose this restaurant for dinner based on their menu. They use fresh ingredients and had a good gluten free menu. The service was excellent, I even asked to speak with the manager to compliment our server. The food was delicious and we all enjoyed a great meal."

  • "A great lunch for me since I am on a low carb program. The chicken Caesar salad fills the bill minus croutons. Nice choices. Good service."

  • "I'll I can say is the food, the atmosphere & especially the service were outstanding! I'd highly recommend Crave for any event."

  • "We brought our French exchange student there for appetizers, and it was her favorite restaurant she had visited. She loved the food. I thought the service was great. I didn't really care for our table. Kind of stuffed in the corner but everything else made up for it. One of my favorites for sure."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Food was ok, especially the mediterranean appetizer. If the bill had been $45 I wouldn't complain, but for $80 for two people it was not worth while. Lots of other places at the Mall have better food for the same price, or less."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Everything from the service to the food was amazing. I had made reservations for a later time but decided to come early; they were very flexible and we got seated immediately. Even on a cheap budget, I found something within that budget and the item of my choice was amazingly good!"
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "After a long day of work, we had a flavorful, eclectic, surprisingly unique meal. Started with Sushi rolls and Nigiri which some of our first time experiencers absolutely loved. Steak and fish was perfect. Finished off with dessert. I was a superstar for choosing the restaurant."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "We were seated inside the main restaurant - a calm, beautiful, relatively quiet oasis amid the noise/constant motion at the Mall of America. The restaurant also has an open "patio" that overlooks the amusement park. Our appetizer - crab stuffed shrimp, & main - chicken and roasted mushroom fettucini - were outstanding in flavor & appearance. The sauce on the pasta was extraordianary - a smooth Mornay sauce with perfect addition of herbs, just enough to make you want to keep tasting the flavors. Service timing was excellent, tea refills offered promptly, bill handled accurately. One stop-by from the manager, who also kindly and knowledgeably answered questions about the herbs and food prep before I left."

  • "Lunch menu is good with great variety and reasonable prices. Dinner is overpriced, unimpressive, slow service, limited choices. We noticed a server bringing out the wrong food to several tables. Very disappointing."

  • "We've eaten at 2 Craves since they opened up - MOA & Edina many times. Both have consistently been mediocre in presentation & taste. Last visit I ordered stir fry which looked thrown on the plate and was lukewarm to the taste. My husband ordered a hamburger and said that his side was lukewarm, too. This seems to be a common problem at least at these 2 sites. Too bad since it started out great...I guess they just don't care anymore. Server we had was excellent and that's what made the evening...not the food!"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "I've eaten at various Craves in the area - always a very consistently excellent experience. We were a group of ten, all had good things to say about the food; the server was great - attentive and even split the check 10 ways."

  • "Page our waitress was amazing. Food came out right away, but was hurried and tasted that way. Ribs (were on special) were tough and dry - strange."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "I took my family here from out of town and the lunch was outstanding and the service was great. The atmosphere was casual but classy and we enjoyed everything we ate."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "We had read the reviews about great food and poor service. Thought we'd try it anyway. Our reservation was for 9:30pm. We were seated promptly. First, the wine we ordered was not available. The appetizer was great. The blackened walleye was great too but my hamburger was overcooked and it was delivered with fries (I had ordered couscous). The waiter assistant took the plate back and my husband was done eating before my correctly prepared hamburger appeared 20+minutes later. Also, the couscous was delicious- but it was cold apparently it was supposed to be so, but I should have been told before I ordered it. There was no attempt to rectify anything for my wait."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "We really enjoyed out meal! They had a great selection for every type of meal preference. The ambiance was very nice and classy and our group was treated great. I would recommend this establishment to anyone!"
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "the dining by the amusement park was TOO LOUD for visiting or a peaceful experience. our server was too busy so even tho she was nice, she was not attentive to our needs. Food was overall ok, but quite over priced for the value. we will not be rushing back to Crave. Our bill was &600 and our family would have been just as happy if we had gone to Chipotle! Or to those all you can eat sushi places for $25-30 per person! The few drinks we did get served were good and the rolls/sushi were good quality."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "After having a couple of pretty bad experiences at Crave MOA (primarily service related), and taking a bit of a break from them, they seem to have recollected themselves. We dined last Wednesday evening, and had a very enjoyable experience. The food was great, and the service (from Sarah) superb. Thanks, Crave. It's nice to have you back."

  • "Crave was recommended to us as a decent MOA restaurant, so when we had friends in town we thought we'd try it out. We were ignored at the door until the woman there finally deigned to notice us, then despite our reservation and the place being 1/10 full, we still had to wait for a table. Then we were eventually seated at a little round table that six adults clearly barely fit at, despite several better, roomier options being available. Our haughty server was barely present and we ended up having to ask someone else for more water. The only bright spot was the tasty food. So poor customer service, despite decent food means I doubt we will bother returning."

  • "This was the highlight of our trip. When nothing else went right on our trip at least we could say the meal was excellent. Plenty of amazing food that catered to mine and my children's needs! If I had to say one negative I would say the kids chicken quesadilla is a touch too spicy for my 5 year old with a much simpler palate. This place was amazing though and will have to return when I am not pregnant for some of that sushi!"
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "We received very, very good service from the hostess who kindly accommodated one of our group who was in a wheelchair to the server who knew her stuff. She was very thorough with her recommendations and although none of us drank wine, she explained the wine choices very well. The hardest part of the dinner was the noise. Thankfully we were seated at a round table and could sort of hear each other the noise around us was very distracting. Thank goodness we couldn't hear any music that would have been worse. The food was good, but not the tasty treat I was expecting. Two of us had the walleye and one plate had a perfectly presented fillet and the other plate looked like pieces pushed together. The other guests enjoyed their dinners."

  • "The food was pretty mediocre. Our service was very slow, even though the restaurant wasn't particularly busy."

  • "My husband and I went to Crave for a date night while we were in Minneapolis. The food was very good! We ordered an appetizer and never relieved it though. Overall, very nice place and nice people."

  • "Returned here for lunch after having a wonderful dinner a month or so before. Must have been a different chef. The food lacked seasoning. If I had this meal the last time I was here I would not have returned. Disappointing because we had invited friends to join us this time."

  • "CRAVE - Mall of America location. Great food, especially their Sushi. We sat as a large group in the restaurant annex across the walkway with the Amusement Park as a backdrop. We heard plenty of screams and rushing railcars. Noisy. but unique. Good service."

  • "For a Wednesday night. The service was slow. Appetizer ,chicken wings ANC calimar were on the cool side. Didn't Send back waited long enough for first round. Crab crusted filets were also on the cool side. Not used to this type of service from them"

  • "Disappointed that for the father's day special they were not keeping up with the advertised meal, it was a 40 minute wait, chose another meal and ended up waiting 40 minutes for that food as well. The staff realized the frustration and discounted our bill 50% and gave free deserts, but we really went for the special and we were disappointed. I would come back, the food is very good. I just hope that they are better prepared the next special occasion."
