    I used to love going to CRAVE. Management changed. Corporate implemented new policies, many of which pushed away frequent diners, reduced portion sizes and price increases on things already over-priced for the market. No wonder it's now closed.

    We found this place on the internet, thanks to a deal page. The sushi rolls were good. We tried some that we had not tried at other places. Prices are a little higher than what we are used to, but then again we were in Orlando and expect this. They offered reservations, which is nice.

    Great deal for a brunch buffet that includes bottomless mimosas. Odd array of food offered, but tasty nonetheless; also seemed rather limited from other brunch experiences (i.e. no omelet station). Server was very friendly, anticipated our needs and introduced one diner to a new condiment. He was also on top of our drink orders- which is important when mimosas are involved.

    We had a nice time, despite the service. Our waiter was not good at all, and even forgot our appetizer. However, the ambience and food was very good and the fact that we were having dinner with a friend we hadn't seen in years, we ended up making it a good time.

    We went for brunch. My niece is 2 years old and my nephew is 8 months and they charged me for both. I asked the server what age they consider kids- he said 0-12. Really? the 8 month old is drinking only breast milk right now. They added the gratuity to our check- for what? He came to our table a few times and we went to get our own food at the buffet. Food was ok- nothing spectacular.

    I've been to CRAVE before, and it's usually pretty good. But this last visit was so disappointing. What's worse, I invited friends who were visiting Orlando (thinking CRAVE was the perfect place for dinner), but not so much. First, the hostess told my friends that we were seated at the bar (but we weren't; she had actually just walked me to our table); our server was less than attentive (we had to ask for silverware and napkins - how were we supposed to eat?); the food took almost 45 minutes to come out, it was luke warm, with no explanation from the server, apology from a manager - nothing. And when I expressed my disappointment - the server made a joke. Really?!? Not at all funny. I'm done with CRAVE.

    We wanted to try something new for dinner, so we tried Crave. Our first impression was good, the menu looked fairly decent and the hostess was friendly. Once we were seated it took about 10 minutes to have someone come to our table, then after drinks and appetizers had been ordered it took our doing to get our meals ordered. After 30 minutes the waitress came and said that my burger had been made wrong, and that they were remaking it. We waited 15 minutes, then the manager brought out our meals. I looked at my burger, and immediately saw that they had put cheese on my PLAIN hamburger. I told the manager that after waiting for 45 minutes for a burger, I would rather just leave. He comped the meal, however the waitress never even came over.

    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).

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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 $$$$.
