  • No ribeye
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/23/2014
    We enjoyed our dinner last Sunday night however we were disappointed Crave was out of the filet and the ribeye???? Unfortunately there were going to be 2 orders of ribeye and filet for us so we had to switch to something else. Fries are terrific but being out of such staples will make me think twice about dining at Crave again.

    Our food was excellent and we had such a great time. I love this restaurant for so many reasons, but whether you are a couple, a group, have kids with you - its always great. They even are aware of kid allergy issues and were so accommodating when my niece from Denver had brunch there with me. The atmosphere is so pretty and the service was great. thank you Crave!

    I have dined at "Crave" at least five times in the past and have been satisfied for the most part with the experience in the past. My most recent meal (a party of six) at Crave was a disappointment, however. Both the service and the food were a disappointment. Service was very slow - hard to understand since the restaurant was not crowded on a Thursday night. Our meal arrived exactly one hour after we sat down. One meal was cold and one meal order was wrong - mussels were served when sea bass was ordered. As a result, one diner in our party was served ten minutes later than the rest of us. The sea bass portions were small - too small for a $29.00 entree. My rating: 2 out of 5.

    I was very disappointed in food. I have eaten at crave for breakfast buffet(what used to be offered) . This has no comparison to what used to be offered. I even looked at menu beforehand and was expecting buffet. Food was very sparse, not hot and unreasonably priced for amount of food received. Bacon was barely cooked and so fatty. I have eaten in evening and have been pleased. Waiter was not helpful. Said he just got there and wasn't sure about various questions. Will never eat there for breakfast again even though it was 11:00am. Very slow service.

    The food is really good but don't count on being able to talk to your co-diners. This place is usually rockin and very hard to hear above the noise. The wait staff are average; I think it's difficult for them to hear also. Waitress brought drinks and said "are you ready to order" and we said "yes" (we were going to a show and time was limited). She walked away and didn't come back for (it seemed) a long while. Bill was incorrect as well.

    While the food is always good, service suffers at this restaurant. We've been lots of times and it is so inconsistent. My biggest complaint this time, however, was the server and kitchen's lack of concern about food allergies. So you can't put something in the fryer? Use oil and a pan. I shouldn't have to make these suggestions.

    Menu is two sided with Sushi choices on one side, American fare on the other. Our party of 5 ordered from the American fare side. Burgers were approximately $15 with nothing special about them served with McDonalds quality fries. The next price point for entrees was in the mid $20. Not a good value for me and nothing special to write home about. Would not return.

    I'm a loyalty member, and I think it's one of the best loyalty programs out there. Always some perk available (or at least "earnable") whenever I come. Also, my mom was with me and it was her first time at Crave, and thought every part of the meal was perfect! Said she was going to tell her friends about it.

    Despite having made my reservation early in the day, our table was not ready upon arrival and my elderly parents had to stand and wait.. no sitting area to wait and bar stools too high. The hostess asked if I wanted a booster for my two year old and I said "yes".. I had put that on my open table request anyway. She never brought it. Our waiter was good, but busy. Our wait for app too long! Food was good and outdoor area nice.

My friend said it was the best omelet she had ever had in her life. I am always so happy to see Steven. He always has a big smile, and wants to do everything to make your dining experience perfect.

    Of the 4 of us for brunch, 2 Eggs Benedict orders were just fine, Omelet Special was not what was expected (had a beef flavor?) and the All American eggs were ordered sunny-side up, but the results were a little under cooked and runny and the bacon was under cooked as well. Other than that, an especially beautiful layout and relaxing atmosphere.

    I've been to Crave many times for lunch and just love it. However, brunch has not been a good experience the times I have gone. Service has been inattentive and apathetic. Took my mom for her birthday on the most recent visit. Server rarely visited the table and did not refill our coffee. (Although the coffee was very hot and fresh.) We both ordered crisp bacon, but it was far from it. I asked for sausage instead, and it wasn't hot, but was brought out quickly and was pretty good. I had toast with my meal, but butter was not brought. When I asked for it, the server forgot, but I did get it later. Food overall was lukewarm, but did taste okay. I'll definitely still go to Crave for lunch and dinner, but I wish brunch was a great!

    For the most part dinner was good. My wife had lamb meatballs over pasta, I had a steak with caramelized brussel sprouts. You never see brussel sprouts as a side dish but they were good. My wife's lamb meatballs were spicy, but the menu never mentioned that. We noticed a lot of selections you don't see at other places.

    Getting a reservation was simple and easy. The servicer was very knowledgeable and nice but was very slow with getting drinks and refills. The food was tolerable to be kind. The restaurant wasn't busy but the wait time was far too long. Also my pizza was cold to the touch when the food finally came out. Overall I wouldn't recommend Crave for anything more than drinks on the patio.

    Absolutely not. Had a coupon and thought, what the heck lets give it another try. It just goes to show you that after three mediocre tries one should stay away. Service was sub-par and the kitchen timing and offering were terrible. Several items listed on menu were not available or didn't actually exist after being told they just rolled out a new menu. Will not be going back for a fifth try.

    We've been to Crave for a team happy hour a few times. We had a somewhat poor experience this round. Our server/ overworked bartender was not attentive to our table. The management staff should probably look at staffing the happy hour area with more servers and not rely on the bartender as much. We had to wait for drink refils several times. Also, two of our happy hour items got forgotten about. When we followed up on this, we were told by our server that it was accidentally delivered to another customer. They then waited to bring out the tempura entree until the chicken wings were ready. This of course lead to cold tempura delivered. It was overall not a positive experience.
