One dinner was delicious, one was mediocre. Steak was partly overcokedd and mostly undercooked. My question is how can you cook steak medallions so differently? Disappointed.
Always a great experience
Always a great experience. And this time Crave really shined. One waitress handled a group of 20 like it was a table for 2. All orders 100% correct and cooked perfectly and served sooner than expected. 5 stars all around!
The food was average and overpriced for what it was.
Everything was great except it was a little loud
I had a birthday with 10 people and even though the guests came at different times, the wait staff was so accommodating. Some friends have different diets, but everyone found something they enjoyed. They even brought over some cake for everyone to share. It was a great birthday. Thanks Crave!
Not a place we'll visit again. Nothing substantively wrong...mostly just mediocre and not what it seems via its presence on OpenTable. In the heart of a shopping mall, menu is "old," in style and choices.
Service was in keeping with the overall impression of "meh."
Not good service, seating or waitressing. We had a really mediocre experience and won't be back.
Always a great experience. Even on a busy Valentine's night, service was swift and the food was great. If there was any blemish, the jerk tofu was not seasoned, but the rest of the dishes more than made up for it.
Food was cold and bland this particular time and not cooked thoroughly through. Kinda rushed due to Valentines Day.
Burgers were burnt and when we asked for napkins we never got them. My husband had to go to the bar and get somehimself. Water glasses were never refilled.
They did accommodate us when they initially gave us a broken table. When the kids meal never came until everyone else had their food they removed the charges for the kids meal.
Food quality has gone down since last year. I used to come weekly but now I come every other month, just for happy hr.
We decided to try Crave on the basis of positive reviews on Open Table. If you're at the mall and want a sit-down meal, it's fine, but I wouldn't go out of my way to go back. The fried calamari appetizer was very good, but the entree we ordered, Asian Shrimp Salad, was nothing special--about what you'd expect at a mid-price chain restaurant, but more expensive. Our server was lovely, but she was obviously overworked and kept apologizing for keeping us waiting.
Hostess told us they didn’t have enough menus and never brought us any. We picked 2 off of a table and a waitress glared and told manager and stared at us. Waiter never brought our appetizer because he never wrote our order down. He said he ran out of paper. We were about to pay and he offered the appetizer?! What!
Amazing service!! Food was excellent.
Great service and food was good. I will go bCk just for the truffle fries.
Crave is a good place to relax after a busy shopping trip. The service was very responsive, the food was good, and the atmosphere relaxing. I arrived early and was seated immediately (there were quite a few empty tables) so I could comfortably wait for my friend to arrive. We ordered drinks - I ordered a glass of wine, she requested a margarita with mixer on the side (they gave her enough mixer for several drinks). We started with sharing the chicken lettuce wraps which were tasty, but difficult to eat due to the lettuce being overfilled (bigger pieces of lettuce would have been helpful). For entrees, I ordered the miso salmon (medium rare) and it was cooked to my liking with stir-fry vegetables. My friend ordered a lemon chicken dish and substituted linguine for the potatoes. The dish comes with 3 chicken breasts, which allowed her to take some home. We did not order dessert, but the coffee was a nice ending to the meal. All in all, it was a good place for us to meet (I came from VA) and I was able to enjoy a meal that fit in with my WW points.
CRAVE is dependably good, and the service is excellent, particularly given how busy this restaurant can be. I recommend the sushi dishes and the salads. I recently had the salmon salad and it was terrific.
great for after a movie - food is simple and somewhat creative
Always excellent service! Two of us had burgers which were cooked perfectly and the fries were nice and hot. I had pasta with chicken and a moray sauce. Delicious. And my husband a chicken stir fry which was very good. Hailey was the manager and Ida our server. They were both outstanding.
Great mall find. Nice variety of starters and mains. But sushi and sashimi are always my favorites.
Disappointed. Sent back a specialty cocktail as it tasted like lime juice and nothing else. Also sent back the mussels...they were very fishy and chewy. Sushi was also mushy and tasteless. A bit pricey for disappointing fare.
Service is declining & not much for Vegetarians or Vegans.
Felt like a bad version of the '80s with possible carpet that is at least 30 years old. The waitress was trying her best to make the guy pay for the bill. A drink and an appetizer costing $30 need to be at an exquisite level otherwise it's a rip-off.
Food was great. Waitress was nice and helpful. Restaurant was empty and looked like it needed to be cleaned/updated
Ordered chopped chicken salad. Was not chopped. Chicken was flavorless. Companion had lamb burger which was 2 spicy. Menu had changed from last visit. New menu not to my liking.
My fries were so greasy, no mayo was on my burger like requested. My burger wasnt done . I feel the server had no knowledge of the food and kept getting the manager. I decided not to order any thing . The manager only gave me a birthday brownie and ice cream for my troubles. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant.
With such attentive and attractive servers like Ida and Rachel and always well prepared food, this is my “go to “ place to dine.
The staff is always friendly and the ambiance upbeat and clean.
Only I would add the sushi menu has some ups and downs though generally all turns out well.
Good menu selection. Food well prepared...one exception, they served chilled steak sauce with our warm steaks. Service was good. Wine selection was good. It's in a mall so it's drafty in most places.
Happy hour was amazing!
We had the seafood paella and the Mediterranean lamb burger. Great dishes, well flavored and spiced just right. The paella is served on a bed of risotto, not rice. Nice twist. Would order that dish again.
Service was attentive and efficient.
We were seated right away. The restaurant was mostly empty, but we had a long wait to place our order and a moderate wait to get our food. We ate sashimi and tuna poke, neither of which should not take long to prepare. The food was tasty.
This restaurant is so dated that it looks dirty. Friendly server and hostess. Bar was lively. Food was mediocre at best. Chef was yelling in Spanish throughout the dinner which was at 7pm.
I was there twice in one week and all the food was deliscious - lamb and bison burgers, paella, lettuce wraps, salmon bowl, etc. Surprisingly not too noisy!!
Visited Crave Restaurant to celebrate a friend's birthday. We ordered the Calamari and the Mussels & Frites for appetizers. For the entrees we ordered the Beet & Kale salad with the addition of grilled salmon, and also the Mediterranean Lamb Burger. Everything was fresh, served hot and delicious. Our drinks, one a blueberry concoction and the other a raspberry concoction were very good as well. Our server was very attentive and made sure that we were pleased with our experience, which included a special birthday dessert for my friend. I highly recommend this restaurant, which is conveniently located in Westfield Montgomery Mall where there is ample parking.
The food was okay, expensive and nothing you can’t get and a lot of other restaurants.
Last visit was pretty disappointing. Half price sushi night but the quality of the fish was poor (had fishy taste not fresh) Generally the quality of the food here has gone downhill markedly over the last 6 months
The grilled cheese and tomato basil soup is usually delightful, but today it was not
If it was my first time at Crave, I would not go back.
Based on this experience, I might still not return.
Always pleasant with excellent, friendly service. A varied menu with interesting choices. Several poke bowls, salads, tasty entrees that are well-priced.
Good fish with rice and sushi made of cooked ingredients, do not recommend sushi with raw fish there. Kids friendly place.
