  • "This is an excellent location for a casual business lunch. Food and service are very good and the restaurant is quiet enough for conversation."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Great spot for lunch with a wide selection of choices, surrounded by an abundant amount of fun energy!"
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "After waiting 15 for our server, I had to contact the host who had a hard time finding our server. Unacceptable!"
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "We sat outside and it was really nice. My Greek burger was undercooked and it did not sit well with me, so next time I will send it back and get it the way I ordered it. The rest of the food, drinks and apps were great."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "There were four of us, and we sat outside after seeing a movie. We all had fish tacos and beer. The tacos were very good, but maybe could have been a little more hearty. We had a nice time."

  • "Hi my name is Chrissy I'll be your server tonight. Gag. Took plates away from diners while others were still eating and asked if table wanted dessert. Food decent but prices are ridiculous."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Ate here while traveling in Minneapolis. The restaurant is located in a large upscale shopping mall. In the evening, the restaurant become a place to be for many young people, giving the are an energetic feel. My wife and I both had the wall-eye, which was good, but could have had more seasoning. Te service was friendly and attentive. All in all a nice place to have a meal."
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "Crave offers a variety of interesting menu items that have never disappointed us. Three out of four of us had the salmon salad and would return just to have it again."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "It was wonderful to finally be able to sit outside since it hadn't rained in a couple of hours. The outside seating was inviting, DRY, the sun was out, it was just beautiful. And as always, the food was fabulous!"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "We went here off a family gathering on a Friday evening. We received excellent service, food was very good. If I could have improved on anything, it would have been noise level. One of my grandchildren is soft spoken. I had difficulty hearing him, even though he sat next to me at a round table. When we go out with larger groups, we prefer to sit at round tables to promote everyone being engaged. It was nice to see that the reservation person scheduled us for a round table without being asked! Nice way to think about the customer"
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Every dish I order is always cooked the way I ask, fresh and tasty. I had a watermelon martini which was great but a bit sweet. The Ahi Tuna for the salad was cooked perfectly."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "Went with some girlfriends after the movie for Happy Hour drinks and small plates specials. Sat outside on the patio which was great. A non-smoking patio!! Everyone loved their food, and the specialty cocktails were great too. We'll definitely be back again."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "Took my father and 6 others to Father's Day brunch. While they were very busy, we had excellent service. Everyone there commented on the food and it was all positive. I've been there for appetizers a few times. Crave West End is a fun place."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We decided on Crave because we had loved the family-style brunch we had had once before. Upon arrival, we were disappointed to find they no longer offer it. :( So instead, we opted to share a few different dishes so we could get that satisfaction that only comes from having a variety of tastes. We split the creole breakfast scramble, braised short rib hash, and the crave stack. The dishes were all excellent! The creole breakfast scramble was definitely our favorite, but the hash was excellent too. The scramble just had a bit more originality and awesome flavor. The crave stack was out of this world, but I would have a sugar overload if I ate only that for breakfast. It was great to share. A kids menu would be a good addition."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Father's Day all you can eat prime rib was great! Dad was happy and full. We made a reservation online, which was very easy with open table. We requested outdoor seating. When we arrived at the restaurant, they told us they could not reserve outdoor seating, but they did have a table available!"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We had all you can eat Prime Rib-It was Awesome! The beer selection was pretty good and my wife found some good wine. Nice day out!"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "After receiving an email about the Father's Day Prime Rib special, I decided, why not? Both my elderly parents loved the service, quality and quantity of food. The restaurant was packed for Father's Day yet service was attentive and constant."

  • "2nd year in a row I went to Crave for my birthday dinner with friends, and 2nd year in a row I was disappointed. Service wasn't great, or really even good. Server lost my Crave card, was slow to take orders and bring check, drink orders weren't right. Overall, I usually enjoy Crave, maybe I just need to skip going there for my birthday. :("
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Was slightly disappointed considering how popular this restaurant is. We went on a Wednesday and it was packed, so I understand why the food wasn't very warm but I was fairly disappointed that the cream cheese wontons we ordered were chewy like the oil hadn't been replaced in a while though the filling was delicious. I probably won't go back as there are other restaurants that I go to in this price range that are better in my opinion."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "If you dine here prepare for the noise level. This is not the place to have a quiet conversation or meeting....but rather a good stop after works for noise and friends."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "The food was really good. The service was great, I think it's great when the server is knowledgeable about the menu items and offer reccomendations."
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "We were hoping to go to Rojo Mexican Grill across the street, however, they did not allow reservations for Friday or Saturday nights. So, we thought we'd try to make it work. Of course, we arrived and there was a 60-90 minute wait. Across the street to Crave and there was a 30 minute wait; we had a movie to get to at 9:00. I hopped onto OpenTable and created a reservation for 15 minutes away. I walked in, said I was there for my 7:45 and they sat us within moments. So strange. We let the manager know that happened and he was quite apologetic. Our server was great. Drinks were great. Even with the mixup at the door and wrong flatbread brought to the table, I would say our table of 6 was VERY satisfied with the experience."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "We met a couple for dinner. Our waiter was new but friendly and attentive. The food was good, I had the rare tuna my wife had the sea food pasta. Wine selection was good. Good value for the price."
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "My mahi mahi was over salty and over seasoned. Aspargus was undercooked. Didn't care for my food. The service was uneven, we were served entrees before the dirty dishes were cleared. Overall not a great experience."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "You can never go wrong here: the sushi is terrific as is the rest if the menu. I've never had anything but great service at any of the locations."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "My husband is a small town guy and 2 years ago I talked him into checking out Crave with me. I had been here before with friends, but I knew he would love it. Now, he can't get enough of it and wants to go there whenever we celebrate a special occasion. It's a little pricey for everyday dining, but perfect for getaways. We just celebrated our 6 year anniversary last weekend and the steaks, sushi, wine and roasted heirloom potatoes were fantastic! I am also Gluten and Dairy free and they had lots of options for me!"
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "The menu had something for everyone in our diverse group - we all agreed the lemony chicken wins stole the night - fabulous! Wish we had ordered two of them! We had burgers, fish and pasta dishes and everyone agreed food was very good! It was a bit noisy but we had opted for a booth in the bar so that is to be expected. Service was friendly and good - would defintely go again!! "
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "Enjoyed our dinners very much, it was our anniversary. My gin and tonic was a little stronger than I usually like but I'm a bit of a light weight."
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "Overall, not much to speak of on this visit...food was average at best, service was slow and infrequent. Seems the West End local has slipped. "
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "Food always great, as is service. Only complaint would be noise level. Tough place for a business lunch."

  • "The Shushi boats are out of this world. Chef choice mad it better when they customized around my wife's lactose intolerance. WELL DONE!!"
    Dined on 5/27/2014
  • "Loved the beef and beet salad. Great flavors, nice portion."
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "We chose CRAVE in West End for lunch on my wife's birthday. It provided the option of sushi for those who wanted it, other options for those who did not, and a children's menu. On an 80-degree day, it also had a good-sized patio with comfortable seating. The noise from rather busy streets is moderate, but not terrible. Staff was attentive and very interested in the happiness of our toddler. I would say most people were quite happy with their food, although I would not rate the sushi as my favorite aspect of our visit. I would return and would suggest it to others. I personally think that I would order a non-sushi item on my next visit. "

  • "They allowed us to move our reservation to 10:45 with no problem but when they got there, they were very rude to us and said the kitchen closed at 11pm. I would not have made the reservation that late had I known. They allowed us to put our food in but not without grumpy looks. Overall service was very poor, never refilling our drinks and bringing them out slowly even though there were only two others in the restaurant. They were rushing us the whole time and couldn't get us out the door fast enough. In the future, they should make it more clear on their website when their kitchen closes, or not let us make reservations that late!"

  • "The cheese ball appetizers with pesto dip and tomato basil dip were excellent...left me wanting more."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "The food was excellent, grilled mahi mahi and mango salsa. The cous cous was bland but ok. My only complaint was that the restaurant was pretty open but they still grouped people up and we had to sit and listen to four "Valley Girls" rant about how horrible it was to get an oil change for their car...but otherwise great place."
