  • "We had a group of 9 and they easily accomodated our separate bills. A server was in training with another server so we received lots of attention!"

  • "I visited crave West End for Sunday brunch with a friend and as usual, the food was excellent and the coffee was extra delicious. The wait staff is alway on point and awesome atmosphere. They also have a great patio area and excellent happy hour."
    Dined on 8/24/2014
  • "I ordered the Crave Stack - pancakes with apples and peaches. This isn't your average dry cake topped with compote and Ready Whip. Instead, it's a layered confection with real candied fruit between soft, moist cakes, and intense cinnamon spiciness. Highly recommended!"
    Dined on 8/24/2014
  • "The BOGO offer drew us to your location last Sunday morning as we usually dine in Edina..however we were celebrating my husband's 75th birthday and this breakfast was a disaster with cold sausages on my stuffed french toast and a luke warm Huevos Rancheros served to my husband. This was at about 10:15 am. The manager did comp the Huervos Rancheros but even at that it was no bargain. Sorry."
    Dined on 8/24/2014
  • "Our server was awesome! Very attentive without being intrusive, did not make us feel rushed at all, she was great."
    Dined on 8/21/2014
  • "Not very many booths. Most of the tables are high tops, which is fine with me, but my husband doesn't much care for those. Service was outstanding. I am dairy & gluten intolerant - they have a gluten free menu and the waiter made sure they didn't use any butter/dairy in preparing my meal. Fantastic food."

The food is always excellent, the service is great and there is a menu where everyone in the group can find something to suit their likes and dietary needs.love that they have small desert options .perfect small treat to end the meal without leaving feeling overstuffed. Our group of 4 really enjoyed dining there."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "My client and I had a quieter booth inside even though it was a beautiful day. We were able to have an uninterrupted business conversation while eating a very nice lunch that unfortunately was a little pricey."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "Convenient location. Good selection of food. Nice servers. Too bad the intersection in front of the outdoor dining is not better controlled. Lots of people honking at each other when the movie theatre empties."
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "High quality food, good service. Can't go wrong with a client lunch!"
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "You won't be disappointed with the quality all around. Food arrived promptly and everyone was friendly and helpful. I will be back"
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "I had a business lunch at Crave and I find it to be specifically great in that context as the menu is so diverse. One person can have sushi and one person can have Pasta. You never have to worry that someone in the party won't be able to find something they like."
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "The atmosphere and location is prime for the area. The food is very good. I would easily recommend the restaurant. The only thing I would work on if I was the establishment is drink price. I don't mind paying extra for really good food and nice atmosphere but a drink is a drink. When you put Vodka, Rum, Whine or Beer into a glass it is what it is. You do not need to soak us customers to the point of being ridiculous. I was the driver so I did not drink at all but the three friends I was with each had 2-3 drinks through the dinner and conversation and they were shocked at the cost of the drinks which you don't find out how much they are until you get the bill. I guess that should be a warning when you are afraid to put the price on the menu"
    Dined on 8/4/2014
  • "We needed to talk to the manager twice about the service , forgotten items , Server did not know the menu"
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "I had never been to Crave. The food was good and our waitress was awesome. BUT.....had I known how loud it would be, I would have gone elsewhere. It was our anniversary and would have liked a lore intimate setting."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Our server forgot our 2 appetizer orders, and took a very long time coming to get our orders as well as bringing our drinks."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Crave is our go-to place in our neighborhood to try something new. And if I can't decide on something new I know I will always enjoy the sushi. Outdoor dinning tends to be a bit loud with the traffic and all the people on the weekends but our servers have always been very good."
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "the shrimp lettuce cups on the special were wonderful, hadn't been in a while, good lunch choice"
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "I made a reservation and requested outside seating, but they said it was first come, first served so I was very disappointed we were unable to eat outside."
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "We love coming here. I especially love their sushi. Our favorite is the Godzilla Roll. Another must order is the crab and shrimp artichoke dip. We also ordered something from the starter menu (can't recall the name), but it was scallops wrapped in raw salmon and other ingredients. My only complaint on that was it was too small! I didn't want to share ;). The service is always great, the quality of the food is fantastic. I will be going back!"
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Great service and food at this Crave location. I've been to another location and the service was not that good. I was really impressed with the Westend location"
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "service was slow ... our server brought one person the wrong salad with our food, she took it back and brought out the correct salad and charged us for both salads ... we did not realize until after we paid and got back to work ... I called and had Jennifer the Manager, who was very nice & helpful issue a credit back to our credit cards for the extra salad."
