    Their hours are until 8 pm. We arrived at 7 and we were told the sushi chef was running 30-45 minutes behind. The dining room didn't look that crowded. We ordered drinks and appetizers, about 10 minutes later ordered our entrees. The drinks arrived. About 45 minutes later so did our entrees. The appetizers did not. I told our server and was told, one was to be done by the sushi chef (we didn't order sushi) and would not come, the other finally came half way through our entrée. From 7:30 to 8, I watched the hostess turn away 5 groups of people who arrived, because "we have had last call for our kitchen". I've never seen a restaurant where the "closing time" is not the last seating. If they don't care about guests, why go back?

    I have been to Crave around a 1/2 dozen times and this by far was the least desirable experience. I would chaulk it up to being an isolated incident, but several things went wrong during the meal. The service took quite a while for everything (take order, waiting for dessert menus, etc) - even though it wasn't busy at all when we were there. They most annoying thing about our experience was that our food was taken to dirrferent tables TWICE! First, our appetizer was taken to the table to the south of us, then our sushi went to booth just to the east of us. There is something about that happening twice that annoyed me. I may go to Crave again, but it definitely have fallen down my list of restaurants.

    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.

    SeattleVisitor
    Dined on 8/24/2014
    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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!

    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!

    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.

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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
