    This is our families favorite sushi restaurant. The happy hour specials are great. I was disappointed that happy hour specials are only served at the bar now. Wish it was still for the whole restaurant. Overall the service, food, and atmosphere is excellent!

    Dined on 7/21/2014
    As a business traveler, I enjoy finding spots like Crave where creative sushi rolls and entree concoctions can be found. The saketini's are all delicious (at least every one I've tried) and pair well with the extensive sushi options. What I like best is that the dishes, including the sushi, are all customizable. I am not a fan of spicy food, so heat level can be adjusted or substituted with different ingredients. I appreciate that as it allows me to try as many menu items as I'd like. I've never been there when it was busy so I can assume it gets noisy and there is not really anything to look at if you're dining alone as I often do. That aside, the staff is friendly and the location convenient for happy hour or a sit-down meal.

    Crave has a great menu that is different than other sushi bars, although it can be very expensive. I like that they have a happy hour menu (and that it's so close to my work). The server recommended the Emerald roll and I was not a fan of it, but their other menu options are delish... they have a great sakitini called "The Crave" -- definitely recommend!

    Our second time did not disappoint! The creative menu which varies from more traditional fare like salads to the best sushi in the world has something for everyone. I had a double order of vegetable tempura (ordering the second one since the first one was so good), a beet/caprese creation which was excellent and calamari. I was so full that I didn't even have my entree! Totally unlike myself. My husband had sushi rolls which he loved. Our server, Chloe, knew the menu inside and out and was very helpful. The ambience is different! Quite high tech with lots of chrome and sofas to sit on while you dine. Not my thing so we sat at a table. Chloe says the place comes alive about 8:30 when the mayor of Dearborn shows up. We will definitely return!

    We have been to Crave a dozen times and we love it. Great atmosphere, great drinks, and the food is always consistent. We usually go for drinks and get 4 or 5 apps. I will recommend the Calamari, the Sliders, and the Soft shell Crab roll.

    This is my 3rd time so I did try to like it. Service is really slow and the staff specially the manager are not friendly at all! Almost rude. Food is just ok and definitely does not make up for the bad service! Would be embarrassing to bring someone special here if you want to make an impression.

  • Horrible for dinner party
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 2/21/2014
    cool place for parties under 6. I went to crave for a 30th bday dinner. When they called to confirm (1 hour before reservation time) they had a different time . I called back to confirm the correct time and was that they have us at a table (fine ) and that it would be one bill. Now I can understand (slightly ) putting it on one bill if you are going to at least group them by who ordered what(get to that later)! When my party arrives(on time ,10 ppl) the table isn't ready and we were offered to sit on the couch. At that point we had split the group in half(fine) .The bill comes and instead of the normal 18%gratuity they charge 20%, no refills on pop( seriously 2 cokes were $7) , and nothing was grouped. Also note they weren't busy either .

    This is a nice place but there's nothing special about the food. The sushi was just as good as many other places we've been. The difference at Crave is how ridiculously expensive and slow their sushi is. We would not recommend it.

    I have been going to Crave for years every few months and it has changed quite a bit. The food is still very good but the selection has become less exclusive and the selections, more liminted. For example, they are now offering burgers. How do burgers fit in the Asian fusion or Japanese cuisine? I do not know. Also, the level of refinement in the service has gone down. The waiters/waitresses dress more casually and do not have the same level of awareness as before. For example, they did not pay attention to the water. The wine glasses used to be very nice glass but now they are glasses that I could get at IKEA or that are more fit for a diner. I think I will go back once more but just to double-check whether the decline continues.

    We had a terrible experience. They seated us at a table by a busy walkway. They refused to reseat us even though 99% of the tables were empty. The manager was arrogant and unhelpful. Service was awful-- obsequious but food took forever and orders were mixed up. Menu was eclectic and intriguing but most of the food was poorly prepared and uneven. This restaurant promotes glitter over substance. Due to the poor. And inept service we cut our meal short. I will never go to Crave again.

    Although highly recommended and an IT place to go, I was a bit underwhelmed. The atmosphere was very open, as though I was dining with everyone in the room. The drink menu was good, not great. The prices for drinks were exorbitant outside of a few beer selections. Service was very good, but the confusing Small Plates menu was not explained nor were recommendations made. On the plus, the small plates were quite filling. An appetizer, a small plate, and a sushi roll would fill you up for $20. But as for the signature Sushi and Nigri, the choices included too many gimmicky items, cooked/fried rolls, and pricey rolls, but very few great options. And the rolls we had looked like they were made by teenagers. I do NOT recommend.

    We have been to Crave many times in the past, but haven't been there in a while. We loved it every time we've gone, until now. We drive quite a distance to get there and wish we would have stuck to something closer to home. We waited 10 minutes for our server to greet us and bring water, he never brought some of the things we ordered, and the sushi was just OK. We spent over 150.00 on food and drinks for two of us and expected the same service and great sushi that we had gotten in the past. It was my husband and I' s first date night since our baby was born and would liked to have had a better experience. I wish I could give a better review, but we were unimpressed. We will stick to O'Sushi in Canton. They have far better food and service.

    This was our first time here. Out to celebrate my daughters birthday. She is the sushi fan, not me. I thought the atmosphere was upscale and modern with a classy presentation. We were there at 8pm and only a few tables were full but by the time we left the place was almost full and it appeared musical entertainment was being set up. The food was delicious and I would eat here again and try more varieties of sushi. This is not a place to get your sushi fix but a place to savor it and some prices reflect that. Classy date place. My only complaint is the two big screen tvs in a prominent place in the room. I don't like eating a really nice dinner in front of the tv. I can do that at home.

    We had an event at Craves for about 50+ people and the Manager Josh, made sure that everything was taken care of. I gave him my budget and he helped with the selection of the menu items. There was more than enough food for everyone and it all came out on time and hot. The staff was very friendly and a good time was had by all. We will certainly consider Crave for our next event.
