Diner Reviews
  • "The food was good and they had an extensive drink menu. The service was mediocre at best. There were maybe 5 tables on a Tuesday night and it seemed difficult just to get refills on our drinks and water. The wait for the food was in my opinion longer than it should have been for as not busy as the restaurant was."

  • "This is the 2nd time we've been here. Last time was a year ago and it was disappointing. We figured that we'd try it again. It was a Sunday night so it wasn't busy. We started with two appetizers and four beers. It took over 15 minutes for the beers to arrive from the bar. There is no reasonable explanation for that wait time given the size of the crowd that night. 10 minutes after the beers arrived the first appetizer arrived. About two minutes later our entrees arrived. At that point we canceled the second appetizer. Two of us ordered fish and it was good. One ordered Mac & Cheese and it was "OK". One of us ordered Stir Fry and it was terrible. We appreciate but declined the manager's kind offer to comp our entire meal. We won't be back."

  • "They just changed their brunch menu that morning. Very slow (obviously still figuring out their new process). Worst part was the value."
    Dined on 8/24/2014
  • "We went as a date night for my birthday and it was perfect. Everything was great, the food was amazing, our waiter was awesome, the manager came over and made sure everything was sufficient, it was overall a perfect meal."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "The good is always wonderful but what stands out to me is the fantastic service by all who work there!"
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "Liked it, didn't love it. A simple grilled fish over very nice couscous but no sauce. Sushi was good too."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "We booked a reservation for 8 people and the table we were given was perfect for a group. It was somewhat secluded so it felt more intimiate than I would expect with such a large restaurant. The food reviews were mixed. I really enjoyed the Spicy Shrimp Fettuccine, but another guest had the Chicken and Mushroom Fettuccine and wasn't satisfied at all. However other people at the table had the same dish and were pleased so it may have just been that particular dish. Overall, good food and good atmosphere. I would recommend this to friends!"

  • "Great weather night for dinner on the patio. Staff let us wait until a table opened up so we could enjoy dining outdoors. Service was quick and efficient, dinner was great!"
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "We visited crave on a Saturday evening. Everything was excellent - great food and service. We ate on their patio which is awesome - great view of Midtown Crossing"
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Went with a group of friends and we all felt it was terrible. It seemed very unorganized for the food being delivered to our table. Two friends had almost ate all of there meal before the rest of us. My food was great, however everyone else was very disappointed. I will not be back, it was very expensive and not worth it."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "I had reservations-many tables were open and we were told on a Saturday night that our food would take over 30 minutes to prepare. An offer of bread or a free drink while we waited would have been nice. The wine was a little pricey and not all that good. We ate ok sushi, a "scallop" appetizer that had scraps of scallops on a hunk of rice and some blah mac and cheese. We asked for a dessert menu, but never got one so we finally just got the check. Our water glasses sat empty through dinner until we received the check. With so many Omaha choices, we wont go back here."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Our server apologized over five times while we dined, and we heard every server around us apologizing for one thing or another to other diners. Drinks and food did not take overly long to get to us,however, once dessert was served our waiter went MIA. After 20 minutes we finally flagged down a manger to give us our bill. We probably could have walked out without paying and they would have never known. Seemed like every server and cook was new the way it was so chaotic around us."

  • "We love Crave great food, great service, and did I say great food?"
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "I have actually dined twice at Crave since July 18th, 2014. Once with my sister and my 9 yr old niece at lunch, and then for dinner with a group of folks from out of town. Everything was great, the food and the service were wonderful. I would not have thought of them for kids really, more trendy, sexy place - however, they were great with kids menu and all kids that dine get a really pretty bowl of fresh fruit for them as soon as they sit down - awesome! The restaurant is really pretty, and the food selection and wine selection were outstanding. Love this place!"
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "I think Crave is overrated. The food was low quality and nothing amazing by any means."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "The wait staff was friendly, but a bit hard to understand. They were out of an ingredient for one menu item we wished to order. I ordered two different sushi rolls. One was great, one was not so great. My husband ordered the rib-eye steak which was unfortunately so full of fat and grissle we had to tell tell the waiter about it. The manager did come talk to us. He was very friendly and admitted this wasn't the first complaint about the rib-eye. We didn't get the steak free, but it was discounted $5.00 and we were compted dessert and our drinks. Don't think we will be visiting Crave again. Bummer!"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "After a disastrous first visit during a Valentine's day dinner two years ago (where they ran out of food, and had lousy service), we decided to give Crave another chance. This time, we had a great waitress (Joy), who knew the ins and outs of their menu, and great food. We even sat outside overlooking Turner Park. We were glad we returned, and this restaurant jumped way up our Omaha list. We don't like chains, but this one is done really well!"
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "Our last two visits have not been good and the most recent made us consider whether or not we'd return. The service was absolutely terrible. We arrived just after 3:00 pm and were one of only three or so occupied tables. So why did it take 35 minutes to get our food? Our waitress was inattentive and failed to provide refills until we flagged her down. Then, once delivered, my food was so salty that it was inedible. The manager did have the dish remade and took it off the bill but the whole experience was just bad."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "My food was good but my husbands was bad. He got the baked Mac and cheese and it was dry. It tasted like noodles sprinkled with cheese. Will not be back anytime soon."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "This was my first time visiting and the hostess and server were great at telling me about the restaurant and making suggestions. Food and service were amazing and I will definitely be back!"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Thank you for the Birthday Cake! Everything was great!"
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "We had an outstanding experience with my teenage children, my 80 year old parents, and my husband and I. The service was excellent, the outdoor setting was comfortable and lovely, and we all thought our food was delicious. Would certainly return!"
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "The prices is a little steep, but for the amount of food on the buffet it is worth it."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "The guy couldn't have been a worse server. We couldn't understand anything he was saying. His clothes looked like they were balled up in his car. He had horrible unkempt looking facial hair. We actually finished our appetizers and drinks before he ever took our order. Luckily another server brought us our food or we would have never made our event. I love crave from the few times I've been there, but this server needs to be on his way out!!"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Went here with a friend for dinner before a movie, the staff was very accommodating in getting us in and out in time to catch our movie. We had appetizers, a quick meal, and even dessert! All were excellent. We both enjoyed the Kobe Beef Tacos (excellent flavor), I had the Crave burger (also excellent flavor, perfectly prepared. The sauce was great!), he had the BBQ chicken flatbread pizza (he said it tasted great). He had the French Silk miniature for dessert, which he raved about even after we left, and I had the salted caramel mousse miniature, which was very smooth. We sat inside, noticed that lots of people were enjoying the patio seating. I would definitely eat here again, but I would allow at least 15 extra minutes for parking."

  • "Very nice time. Service was good and lots of good food too!!"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "We have been to CRAVE multiple times and have always enjoyed our experience but not this time. The menu had changed, removing many of our favorite items and increasing the price of others. What we ordered tasted just okay. But our biggest complaint was the service. Our waitress was slow and inattentive. Our food took twice as long to be delivered and she was not quick to follow up or refill drinks. Just an all-around disappointing visit."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "We used to fine at Crave often but our most recent night there was not the best. Service was extremely slow. One of our group members meal came out completely wrong. Their delicious Kogu Beef tacos normally comes with a yummy sweet corn dish and black bean and rice casserole. This night it came with a bowl of white rice with shredded cheese melted on top. Hoping this doesn't become a common trend as we normally love this place!"
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "This restaurant is great for dinner and for Happy Hour but especially delightful and relaxing after a concert in the park. What's not to like about being at beautiful Mid-Town Crossing?"
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "This was our second visit to Crave. The food was absolutely delish & the service was fantastic! Vince took great care of us. The Mac and Cheese with Shrimp added was amazing. The Tacos are also one of our faves."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "Went for our anniversary. It was VERY hit or miss, mostly miss. My husband ordered a special (listed on the day's separate menu). We were there early evening. They were out of the item my husband ordered. No big deal- went with the second choice. He then ordered a cocktail....they were out of the ingredients for that as well. We went through that another two time, same story. On the FOURTH attempt at ordering a drink (a mojito) they finally had everything. Incredibly disappointed, particularly wit the place being so costly. I don't recommend."
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "On this trip we went specifically for the prime rib special. The restaurant was packed so we were warned that the service would be slow and it was. I understand that this was a special night but still they seemed particularly disorganized and late. We twice got the all-you-can-eat prime rib "refill" plate before ever getting the first one, and they were both taken away leaving us with no food. Once we did get the main plats both were more rare than what we had ordered, but by then the prospect of just having food outweighed the thought of sending it back. Good food in the end, but wow the wait and confused service were sure a surprise in what is normally a good restaurant."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "My husband and I like to come here for special occasions. The food is usually very good. We had the prime rib on this visit and each time is came out it was very under cooked. My husband ordered it med rare and when it came out it didn't look like it had been out on the grill at all. We ordered a juice for my daughter that the server forgot about and we also ordered an appetizer that we never received. We just ended up canceling the appetizer when the food cane out because it still had not come. The last few we have noticed that our servers would come and drop our food of but if there was something additional we needed it was very difficult to get their attention. I think we will be finding a new restaurant to eat at for now on."

  • "I love Crave, been there several times now and have never been disappointed"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We ordered their special, sushi, steak and a couple of kids menu items. Our reservation was at 5 p.m. The restaurant did not seem overly busy. We didn't receive our food until 6:15 p.m. or possibly a little after. We had to request that our kids' meals come out early because they couldn't wait any longer. Suddenly when we said that, all of our food was ready. The menu doesn't clearly list menu items and side accompaniments. The server won't volunteer the information, so I would advise others to specifically ask. My mom ordered a side salad because she wanted a vegetable with her steak and then it showed up with steamed broccoli as a side. We will probably eat there again, but without kids and when we have LOTS of time."

  • "We visited Omaha over Father's Day and I made a reservation at the Omaha Crave as I was familiar with Crave in Mpls as having good food and being kid friendly. We waited 5 minutes for our table, 10-15 minutes for anyone to take our drink order, and I was surprised to find out it was a buffet only menu. The food itself was good...if you could get it. The kitchen was having a hard time keeping the food replenished and I waited for a good 10+ minutes for waffle batter to come out. I was quite happy with the food though. They just seemed under prepared and had run out of things by our 11:30 reservation time."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We had reservations. Apparently many of the guests didn't, and they weren't prepared for that. There was little food on the buffet. When it arrived, it was immediately gone. There was way too little staff for the number of guests. It took 20 minutes to get drinks, and we had to flag down the waiter to get refills--it's not like there's that much for him to do on a buffet, but keep the guests in drinks."

  • "Seriously. Made reservations for 6. Wanted to show off what was once a great place. It was an awful experience. For the price I expect better than the bar for seating."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "When I was looking at the menu online, this place looked very promising. The ambiance was great. All of the wait staff was very friendly from the moment we walked in the door. But when it floor time to eat the food: that's when things changed. It was very mediocre at best. The shrimp tempura was poorly constructed and tasted cheap. We also had two more seafood dishes that were pretty underwhelming. My partner had the lamb burger, which was so well seasoned that he could no longer taste the meat. I had the renown "crave burger". Even cooked at "medium", it was extremely dry. I will say, they had an excellent selection at the bar. Crave has prices that are not incredibly astronomical, just a little too expensive for the food quality."
