Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "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
  • "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
  • "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!"

  • "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
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "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
  • "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
  • "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."

  • "Amazing food, service and setting. Defiantly a return customer. Thanks for the experience."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We sat in the bar, ordered wine and sushi. The view and atmosphere were nice but the service was pretty bad. I waited at leadt 15 miniutes for thr soup. I had to ask for wasabi twice, which was not brought with the sushi, so wierd, we were almost done when it came. Our waitress was sweet but rarely available. My least favorites parts were that the TV staring us in the face was playing the Bachlorette and the manager even brought me one of our items but didn't ask about our dinner. I can't imagine going back. Brix is far better if you just want the view and far better service."
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "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
  • "arrived at 530. it wasn't busy but our waitress did not arrive until 550. We were ready to order but the waitress was distracted, took our drink orders and left. my friend ordered a diet coke and at 6 she brought my tea and either a Dr Pepper or Mr Pibb for my friend. She took my order for a burger and left. A few minutes later my friend got her attention and asked for a diet coke - she came back with --- a regular coke. My friend went to the bar and got a diet coke. at 620 sge arrvd and and asked how I wanted my burger cooked and if I wanted fries or cous cous. At 642 the burger arrived and i asked for the check since we had to be at bocce at 7. the check arrived at 652, I gave her cash , she came back with change at 658."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "It was my second time back to crave and the food was delicious as before. But ran into the same problem when it came to service. It was very slow, even after it slowed down. If the food wasn't so good, I would not go back."
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "Crave is ever changing it's menu, four times a year, and it always is a pleasant and wonderful dining experience. On warm, sunny days, the patio is the place to be. The food is top notch, presentation is always pleasing to the eye. The menu has something for everyone. When we were there, the Asian influence on the menu was present. I had the lightly coated Wallaye fish, outstanding, melted in your mouth. My husband had the Flat Iron Steak and it was properly cooked, wonderful seasonings. Needless to say, this is one dining experience that makes me feel I am in New York again, overlooking Central Park."

  • "I've dined here twice and both times I have been very pleased with the food and atmosphere. "
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "There was a mushroom and twig of dinner found in the baked mac n cheese dish. When the waitress was informed about the findings, she made excuses about the staff moving so quickly in the kitchen. No apology given by her or the other individual she showed the twig to."

  • "Crave was delightful. I went with two of my dear friends, and we had such a lovely time. Great for a girls' nite! "
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "The service was absolutely horrible. I usually enjoy crave. I had a party of 20 with only one server. The never server never came back for refills or to check on us. He didn't even see how the food taste. My party received little to no attention. "
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "We celebrated our anniversary at Crave and were so glad we did. Originally we asked for inside seating, but changed our minds. The waitress was so pleasant, and quickly helped us relocate to outdoors. It was a perfect evening. We had a leisurely meal, nice wine, good service and the view was much better than most Omaha outdoor dining. I had one of the specials, pistachio encrusted halibut, which was excellent. We shared a dessert, and it was hard to pick from the many selections. They also have small portion desserts if you just need a little sweet treat. I would recommend joining their rewards program. There are always nice specials popping up."
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "Food was excellent although service was slow during this visit. Also, the AC was way too cold and we were told it could not be adjusted as it was controlled by corporate. WHAT?"
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "This was my first time visiting Crave and I was there for a business dinner. The entire menu looked great and I had no idea what to ordeer, but the waitress recommended the Kogi Beef Tacos. These were absolutely great! The atmosphere at the restaurant was very nice and the staff was extremely friendly. Can wait to take my husband there!!!"
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "the service was awesome the server went over the menu thoroughly which was great! The menu has a large variety of options from sushi to steaks. I had Godzilla sushi rolls which were huge. The only thing that was not to my liking was the prices of the drinks which seemed grossly overpriced. Overall a pretty good experience."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "This place was great! The staff was helpful and attentive and made sure we had everything we needed. Their gluten free menu was great and my basil tomato soup was delish! My wife enjoyed their chicken sliders as an appetizer, and baked macaroni & cheese as the main course. This was a highlight of our Memorial Day trip to Omaha! We will definitely remember this place for next time!! :)"
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "We were seated and had to ask for a waiter after sitting 10-15 minutes. The restaurant was nog overly crowded so it seems no one was assigned to our table. We were there for brunch. Selection was limited. No omelet bar. They had fresh waffles which were good but not much for toppings. If you go out to eat for atmosphere only you will enjoy Craves brunch. "
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "Myself and two friends ate at Crave at 8:30 on a Friday night, the place was empty. That was my clue the place sucked. Then the service was bad, she didn't know the menu or how to work the pms system. The food was ok. I had sushi, I have definitely had much better sushi at a way lower cost. Overall, I would never recommend this restaurant, and I would probably not return. "

  • "Enjoyed pre show dinner. Sat next to a very noisy group. Should have asked for a different table. There were other choices and I was with elderly that can't hear well. Service was good, food delicious and would recommend and go again just probably with different friends. "
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "Overall a great experience with a very varied menu -- they have so much more than sushi (steaks, burgers, fish) so that if you have a craving for sushi but your company is not a sushi fan, there are other great menu items to have. Overall, gracious service. On this visit my only complaint is that they had run out of sake! I so wanted to have sake with my sushi. "
    Dined on 5/19/2014
  • "The waitress was very slow and lazy. Acted like she would rather be anywhere but there. The food to select from was fair, not a large variety of selection and wasn't really all that great. The waffle bar was so slow. One waffle maker working and we waited in line for over 30 minutes to get a waffle made. We were told the toppings for the waffles were blueberries, which were actually blackberries, and apples, which were actually peaches. The online menu showed a great buffet listing a lot of items that were not on the buffet. Overall, we were very disappointed in the brunch."
