Diner Reviews
  • "Heard much about the concept from friends up north. Does not work in Orlando. Apparently they forgot they had one here. Out of many menu items - Out of pasta?? Too many good alternatives in saturated restaurant town here. Only eight tables occupied - won't need a reservation."

  • "I found this restaurant listed in a copy of Orlando magazines best restaurants section as one of the best Sunday Brunches in town. If this is true I really feel sorry for the people who live in Orlando. The selection was very low. The service was slow. There was no follow up. We arrived at the starting time 10:00 but most of the items had not been placed out yet and the few that has looked like they had been left over from the previous day."

  • "The food was delicious. The service on this trip was a little less then subpar. We were there celebrating a birthday and after dinner we sat and chatted, our waitress disappeared. We were not done with our drinks and would hand had another round but she never came back."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Our 1st time at Crave. Not the best sushi my husband has ever had, but by far The best ever and freshest flat bread we've ever had. The edamame was a little on the hot side, I'll ask for the wasabi on the side next time. We'll definitely give it another shot."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "My family really enjoyed the menu items, I'm more of a foodie and I am not fond of non-asian or Japanese eateries that serve (or try) Asian like menu items. The flat iron steak was a little tough for me and not enough flavor. The service was excellent and the staff at this eatery clearly aim to please (hard to find IMO)."
    Dined on 4/8/2014
  • "The management staff was extraordinary every question I asked was answered with attention and concern. My waiter was called unexpected for a task. Management quickly compensated with a free desert, perfect management."
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "Given its location near a major mall and a major highway, Crave is ideally located for business lunch or shoppers. Although I have found some of the items to be overpriced, the food is in general good and the service has always been good. I feel it is a much better lunch restaurant than a dinner restaurant. Menu is varied with sushi for those who like it and American offerings for others. The sushi is adequate but not great, and the value does not match most Japanese restaurants on the same dishes. Nevertheless, Crave is overall good with the proper atmosphere for social or business luncheons."

  • "We've enjoyed Crave both in Coral Gables and Orlando. Service is always friendly and swift. The menu offers a wide variety and all we've tried so far has been tasty. Good salads, decent sushi items, and tasty shrimp pasta are some of our favorites. In Coral Gables we've eaten both lunch and dinner. That location has a lovely outdoor setting. Orlando has outdoor seating as well but the tables overlook a parking lot. Indoor space in both locations is large with both booths and tables. The Orlando location appears to be popular for Sunday brunch. Crave satisfies diners who don't know quite what they want in a meal and like a varied menu. Unlike other restaurants who offer a 25 page menu though, Crave makes it simpler."

  • "We enjoyed the Sunday brunch in March 2014 and should have come even more hungry than we did! There is more food than you can eat, and great quality."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "The food was good but what I ordered didn't come with everything that was on the menu. The service was terrible we were seated for 15 minutes before our server even came to our table and it was another 30 minutes before we even got our food. The restaurant wasn't even packed"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Very nice place excellent food, a little on the high side but a very enjoyable time."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "We picked out the restaurant based on its proximity to the mall, but we were pleasantly surprised at how great the food was. We are normally part of a foodie group in Atlanta so this place scored highly."

  • "Awesome Food! Great Service! Will definitely be back."

  • "I was disappointed with crave went for Sunday brunch food selection was not good did not have an omelette station had a reservation but had to still wait and line for buffet had to pass through general public that were waiting to be seated poor set up"
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "There were four of us that went for Sunday brunch. $19.99 per person got you all you could eat from their buffet and unlimited fresh squeezed orange juice and mimosas."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "From the moment we walked in the door staff was extremely friendly. Our waiter went above and beyond to provide exceptional service! Nice atmosphere. FOOD - very tasty. I had short rib tacos with kimchi (yummy) and son had chicken parm. which was very tasty. Chicken topped with fresh mozzarella served on a bed of cappellini which was tossed with a fire-roasted tomato marinara. (mmmm) Nice size portions. And the icing on the cake - I had a Groupon so was able to save $$$$."

  • "Tried this restaurant for the first time and the atmosphere and food were excellent! Good variety on the menu at good prices!"
    Dined on 3/17/2014
  • "I had a great time, with good food and service, and I think I can speak for my guests too. Based on this dining experience, I would happily return for more of the same or similar. We had a couple of minor issues with the food, but these were dealt with promptly and efficiently and it did nothing to detract from a good time. -- I should add that I was also at Crave soon after it had opened and that experience was truly awful. I had vowed never to return, but I'm glad that I've been talked around. I think there must have been a change of ownership/management since that time. I'll be back."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "I ordered the Mahi Mahi and if was delicious! For dessert I had the s'mores brownie. It was just ok; I probably wouldn't order it again. Our waitress seemed preoccupied. We ended up getting more service from other wait staff and the manager"
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "The filet mignon was so tender and juicy. Staff was great. I will eat there again."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "We have had lunch twice before at Crave and found it good for salads or sandwiches. Dinner was a different story. The sushi is somewhat overpriced compared with other restaurants in the area, and the fish portions on the rainbow roll were scanty. I had the sea bass, usually one of my favorite dishes. It was a small portion. It was supposed to be marinated in miso, but the fish was just dropped on top of the miso, so the flavor did not come through. I was disappointed in the food and did not think that the value of the meal was worth the price. Doubt we will be back for dinner, although a salmon salad lunch is still possible."
    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "Restaurant has a great vibe. Food is delicious. My husband and I had a great time there. Can't forget the service, Josh is amazing. He knows the menu and made some great recs."

  • "We've been multiple times and never had a meal we didn't love. Not to mention, TJ is a fantastic server."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Crave is fun and energetic place, where you may even run into a celebrity or two. They have a fun take on traditional Southern food and classic drinks. The service is very welcoming and exceptionally fast. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone!"
    Dined on 3/5/2014
  • "The food was great, the server, not so much. We had to remind our server about the "All You Can Eat" Prime Rib" special. She told us they were out of a wine, which we later found out they had. The bartender who brought the wine was knowledgeable and upsold the white sangria, which he made to order based on my tastes. The prime rib was very tender and flavorful. I do think for $30.00, it should have included both a starch and a veg, especially since the refill was only for the meat. They are still perfecting the salted caramel mousse. It has promise, but give it some time. I ordered an after dinner coffee, which was on my check, but never made it to the table. I'll return for the food, but a different server. Manager and Chef were great!"
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "Reasonable service, food tasted like plastic. Sushi did not taste good. Soup was served cold."
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "This was my first time trying Crave for dinner; we usually only go for Sunday brunch. The atmosphere was the same as a Sunday brunch; well lit, a ton of energy and kids. The food was awesome and the portions are true to size - 1 plate is meant for 1 and a dish for 2 is meant for 2."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "I booked for Valentines 2014 and chose the fixed menu. Was very happy with value and quality considering they were catering to the masses this night. Would definitely try it again on a regular night to see if it would make me leave the Winter Park/College Park area."

  • "Excellent food.. but they seem to have a identity crisis. There was literally everything on the menu.. it made it really hard to decide on something.. I even asked the manager what their signature dish was and he couldnt give me a answer. Overall the good was very good though and the service was spot on"
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "The food was just average.The sushi on the website does not look like the sushi you order and grocery store sushi tastes better. Would not go back. The décor is the only thing going for the place."

  • "My 5 year old son and I had brunch and it was wonderful. Everything was delicious!"
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "My mother, sister and I went to Crave for lunch. They both had the butternut squash soup which they both loved, we shared the calamari (yum) and then I had the bento box (great!), my sister had a salad (but was mostly full from the soup) and my mother had the chicken salad. We all thoroughly enjoyed the meal and found the service to be excellent. The manager was walking around, talking to tables, and making sure all was well which is always a fantastic touch. The only thing that didn't go perfectly is that I had mentioned it was my mother's birthday and they didn't mention it until after we had already gotten the check which was a bit too late. Otherwise, it was a nice meal and we were all happy."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "It's difficult to be good in everything, Crave has tried to do this presumably to satisfy everyone as it offers, for example, both Sushi rolls as well as Hamburger sliders. Although everything is adequate, it is far below great. If you are looking for a place where everyone in your group wants different and the group could not agree to a type of cuisine, then Crave is the place for you. Otherwise, I would try something else."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "It was ok but not worth $20. I felt there was not much to choose from."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "Food ambience and service was great. ONLY THING was that they rushed us through our meal. Asking if we wanted our plates taken, if we wanted boxes, while we were STILL EATING. It was a turn off. But not sure if hte waitress knew any better so we didnt reflect our dissapointment in the tip. other than that. great spot. Odd that there was a sushi kitchen in the back of an american resturant, but stuck to the american cuisine and loved it."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Three different dinner selections and all were way too salty, including the mahi mahi. We all drank a lot of beverage, that is when the waiter finally got around to coming by the table. When we got home we all headed straight for the kitchen to get more water to cut the feeling of dryness in our mouths due to all the salt. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone, especially anyone watching salt intake."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "We made reservations and as soon as we arrived we were pleasantly suprised to be seated immeadiately. It didn't take long to get appetizers and salad, however there was a considerable amount of wait time to get our main course. The appetizers were really small and pricey, however really tasty. Food was good, but overpriced for the quality. Desert was really good! Also, I didn't see it on the menu, but order the fresh bread, it is really good. Overall, expect a pricey menu for average food with a great atmosphere and great service."
