Our waiter delivered our appetizers at the same time as our entrees, and then acted petulant for the remainder of the meal after I politely but firmly pointed out this violates the most basic rule of meal service.

Great food, reasonable price, surprisingly good. The sushi was good, the portions were large, and family of four ate well for less than $125.00

From the warm and friendly greeting offered by the very pretty manager, Elly, to the excellent service given by the very affable and congenial Brandon, the evening was memorable. Although the lamb burger is only offered at lunch, strangely enough, the helpful Brandon arranged for this tasty burger to be served to my friend at dinner- ten minutes before closing. The cheeseburger, with added bacon for a dollar was good as well.

Generally, Crave does a reliable job. On past visits we had the attentive and lovely Tiffany.

Calamari was greasy and overcooked - breading was falling off. Salad was not fresh. Three scallops and three small shrimp on past was $26 - outrageous. And the drinks are very, very pricey. Beware.

Our server was terrible. He never said hello or greeted us in any way. He just walked up to the table and starting talking about beverages. He never smiled. He spoke too softly. He didn't get our orders completely correct. He never refilled water glasses. Because of this, we will not return and would not recommend the restaurant.

The service was horrible, they missed up our drink order and took half an hour to correct it. We both ordered ahi poke bowls and the seasoning was extremely salty and overpowering. We would not go back.

Even though it is in a mall, we really like this restaurant. The Sushi is excellent, my teenagers LOVE the mac and cheese, and happy hour has some great values. Plus if you join the crave club, you always get coupons.

Food was good. The service was sub par. Waitress seemed grumpy and put out when we asked a question or had a request. Restaurant didn’t feel very clean.

The server forgot to order our appetizer and messed up our entree. Asking for no sauce on the steak, but still put it. Then came back with disgusting steak/pieces of meat. Not recommended this place for steak at all!!!

It was lucky to be there on half price sushi night and so I tried three different items. And since so many people recommended their truffle fries, I got an order of those too. Very good food but service was a bit slow.

Food was okay but a tad overpriced. At a price level about 15% lower for entrees this would be a great place. For the money spent you can get a better overall experience elsewhere.

My wife and I have become fans of this restaurant and our 25 year-old son was as well before he moved. We mostly go on Saturdays before a movie. My faves are sushi and poke bowl. If you get the bowl, be sure to ask for the chili oil on the side because it varies widely on the spice quotient. Service is often quite good. There’s a nice selection of wines by the glass and beer choices are respectable.

Crave is predictable and for the most part that is good. I had previously ordered a salmon bowl and had complained there were only two measly shashito peppers ( I had complained previously to a manager about this and asked if I should try the dish again, thinking there would be more . The waiter told me there were two peppers and based on my story, he upped that to three!!!! I wouldn't order this dish again.

The whole experience was lackluster. We had a lovely waiter, but he was obviously new and not well trained. Kitchen staff mishandled a simple food substitution request and remade entire meal.
