CRAVE - Mall of America
The only reason I didn't giveThe only reason I didn't give 5 stars for Overall is because the prices are pretty steep. There is not a category for Value - even though the food is great, it is more expensive than great food at some other places we go. Still, for a special occasion it's very good. The service really is excellent.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for Mother's Day!We took my parents out for Mother's Day brunch since they were visiting us in the cities. They had never visited CRAVE before, and really enjoyed the variety of unique offerings available on the buffet.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe'll be backWent for Mothers Day. The scenic view is of the Mall, but we enjoy people-watching and that was a fun experience. Unfortunately, the only thing offered that day was the buffet, so we didn't get to try some menu items we were hoping to check out, but the buffet was good and our server was great. We'll come back another time when we can order off the menu.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day TreatGreat brunch for Mother's Day with the husband and kids. There was something for everyone. The only problem was the long line at the buffet, but that was to be expected.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMout it hther's Day BrunchIt was very well displayed.
The food was fresh but had cooled slightly.
The staff was friendly and quick.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went for mothers day brunchWe went for mothers day brunch with my mom dad fiancé and our 2 kids. Our server Brice was so attentive and interacted with my boys and when one ran off, another waiter escorted him back to our table. Wonderful food and service. Will Be coming back for sure!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat, except for one thing...We went to CRAVE for brunch on Mother's Day. The food was delicious and our server was friendly and attentive. However, one thing really took away from our overall experience - the hostess dressed in the skin-tight, lace-back, hot pink dress, which looked like lingerie. My little 5 year old daughter said "Mommy, how come you can see that lady's back?" Not exactly the conversation you want to have with an impressionable little girl during Mother's Day brunch. It was totally inappropriate and unprofessional attire. If this is what is deemed acceptable by the management of the restaurant we will not be returning.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMothers Day BrunchExcellent variety of dishes, some of which you don't normally see in a brunch. Made her day special !5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGeisha boat was amazing!We had the Crave Salad and not one, but two Geisha Boats! Absolutely delicious!
Can't wait for another reason to dine at Crave!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBest sushi!Always an enjoyable experience. Great food. Reasonable prices. Great atmosphere! Great friendly service!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a most enjoyable timeHad a most enjoyable time with great food and service!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMBeing one of our favoriteBeing one of our favorite dining experiences, we chose Crave to help celebrate with two friends who recently graduated from college. Our server was fantastic and on discovering the reason for our celebration, did everything to make our guests feel welcomed. The food was outstanding (walleye, cajun shrimp pasta, brick baked chicken, and sushi) and our friends could not stop commenting on what an enjoyable experience they had. Crave has two new regulars now.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMI love the fact that you haveI love the fact that you have your gluten free items listed on the menu. It makes it so much easier. thank you!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great serviceGreat food, great service with appropriate attention for a special event4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGood LunchWe were seated in the bar which seemed odd since we were mom and teen daughter and there were alot of free tables. Meal was good. Caesar salad was good but would have preferred the lettuce cut up. Chicken, apple and Brie sandwich was also delicious. Service was excellent.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMHalf Price Sushi Sundays - Gone!!I was sad to find out that this location is no longer participating in half price sushi Sundays (after 4 pm). With some insistence, our server had the manager come to our table to speak to us about this very recent change. The manager agreed to discount three rolls for the two of us. We were happy that they chose to honor Crave's ongoing promotion. Service was great, we were treated very well. But I know in the future when I want to do half price sushi Sundays I'll need to go to a different Crave.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe chicken oscar at CRAVEThe chicken oscar at CRAVE is excellent, but I decided to go a different course on my second visit and try the baked mac and cheese with chicken. The baked mac and cheese was good, but it is hard for me to compare it to the chicken oscar I enjoyed so much during my first visit. The service was great again and the drinks were excellent. I enjoy the ambiance in CRAVE very much and I do recommend this place if you are near the Mall of America. I was not disappointed and will definitely return again.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMMinnesota NiceExcellent dining experience at Craves. Menu selection varied and eclectic - something for everyone - comfort food chicken pot pie to flat bread pizza and pasta dishes. They did run out of a standard wine label but we were happy with options given. Once inside the restaurant, you forgot you were in one of America's busiest malls.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe seared Tuna entree dishThe seared Tuna entree dish was outstanding. I will order it again next time.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was great! Our waitressFood was great! Our waitress was very helpful and energetic! Would definitely come back again!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Date Night Atmosphere!We had mainly asian fare; the seaweed salad and edamame were our starters and were a great beginning so as not to fill up. My wife asked the server about one of the cold sake by-the-glass options and our server was vague and commented on the "anise", but my wife liked it so much she had two glasses. Our futo maki and vegetarian rolls were outstanding. It took a little while for the main course to come out, and because our seating area had just cleared out quite a bit, I was wondering why it was taking so long, but it was worth the wait. I also ordered a cup of the vegetarian curry soup which was great - not too heavy, and nicely balanced. The frequent diner club is free to sign up so we did! We're going back; Wendy the manager is awesome!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great experience!We had a great experience! We had reservations and were seated immediately, even though the restaurant was packed. The food and service were perfect.
We will definitely dine at Crave in the Mall of America again!!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMSecond time returning andSecond time returning and better than the first. Sat a the sushi bar and had excellent service and food. Chef was more than willing to explain selections and answer any questions. Will be back!!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWe came for dinner and toWe came for dinner and to watch the NCAA basketball games. Made a reservation online. Very easy. A table was available as soon as we reached the restaurant. The Open Table App even told us which part of Mall of America to park in. Appetizers and drinks were wonderful. I and my husband ordered pasta dishes which were wonderful. Son and wife had sushi. They thought their food was great also. The mini desserts are a great idea when you just want a little sweet taste. We had a great time.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for romantic dinner !!I love the romantic feel of this place - perfect place to spend an evening [open dining]with my husband.Baked crab & artichoke dip was fabulous.The menu didnt have enough info on the items, especially sushi and the entree item was not worth $$, although taste was great.I really enjoyed the dessert, the decoration was amazing. Service was well-timed.I definitely would return to try more dishes.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food fast service, sittingGood food fast service, sitting near the window I a little weird having people look in at you.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe all enjoyed our food butWe all enjoyed our food but I was disappointed in my chicken and mushroom fettuccine as it had little flavor. The appetizers and the other three meals at our table were really good. I hope to try something else next time I get a chance to visit.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time here. VALENTINESFirst time here.
