Service was extremely slow, it was so loud we couldn’t hear our server, and the food was only “eh”. I’d only go back to eat the sushi which was amazing.

The service was great, the food was awesome and we had a great time for a birthday celebration! We had 3 generations in our party and our server (I wish I could remember his name) and he was awesome in dealing with everyone in our party. On one occasion, the matriarch of our party asked for a napkin and he responded by bringing our entire party a warm wet towel! Way over the top!

We were in Minneapolis for the boat show and Crave wasn’t far from there. We all wanted sushi and decided on Crave. WOW!!! Their sushi is the absolute best! Drinks are great along with a great atmosphere. It is a bit pricey but totally worth it! Would definitely recommend and will definitely be going back.

We went there for lunch. Menu items sounded really good, but was disappointed with experience and food. It took the server forever to get to us. I think the hostess never told him that she had sat us at a booth in stead of a table. Food was overcooked and pre-made even for strawberries and apples for my overpriced salad. Brussel sprout appetizer was blah. It sounded good, but came out like mush.

Crave had a special menu for NYE. I first ordered the bowl of lobster bisque...I received a very small cup which had no lobster in it. I also ordered the crab topped filet...there was no discernible crab anywhere on my plate. Crave should be embarrassed of themselves!

Went ti Crave on New Year’s Eve and got the Prix Fixe (sp?) menu. The food was comparable to a nonprofit conference’s offerings. In other words, bland and not good. Our server got most of our order wrong and every drink seemed to take forever. The kitchen staff brought out each of our menu items twice - which would’ve been awesome if the food was good (but we politely passed on the accidental extras). I guess it’s a good lesson to not get a pre-set dinner for two deal at any restaurant. I’ve had great experiences there in the past so I won’t hold it against them. However, had it not been for those great prior meals, I wouldn’t be willing to go back.

Our meals were pretty good - we were there on New Year's Eve and ordered off the prix fixe menu, so it was a very good deal ($99 for 2 people, 4 courses.) Our order got delayed in the kitchen and we ended up waiting about 30 minutes for the entree. To their credit, the manager came over to apologize and comp'd us for drinks and dessert. Mistakes happen, but good service always doesn't, so we appreciated this gesture. The server was very friendly, too.

One of our meals which was supposed to be served hot, was cold. When they brought it back it was still cold as if no one had done anything and they just brought it back to her. The third time it served hot, and well after all of the others had finished their meal.
The server was pleasant but not very helpful.
I’ve been a Crave diner for years, but likely won’t be returning foe a while, specifically because of how it was all handled.

Overall Good. large selection on the menu so there is something for everyone. I had the Stir fry chicken and it was awful but others had the flatbread, the mussels and the walleye and they raved about the flavors. It was my poor choice. They made it easy to be finished in time for the theatre. The manager stopped by our table just to greet us and insure our needs were met. That was nice as it was a busy time for them. One in our party ordered a specialty cocktail and said it was excellent!!

The food was delicious, good service, refills came promptly. My only complaint is that the free "birthday dessert" was hard as a rock. It was a brownie that seemed to have been made a week ago and when my mom went for the first scoop, she had to press so hard with her spoon that the piece went flying off the table when it finally cracked. So that was a little disappointing.

We had dinner at Crave Lasalle Plaza before attending Phantom of the Opera at the Orpheum Theatre. Crave is an excellent choice for pre-theatre dinner! It's kiddie-corner from the Orpheum, has heated parking in the Lasalle Plaza Ramp, and has a broad menu certain to satisfy even the fussiest eaters. We've tried many of the items and all have been well prepared and delicious.

We had reservations for 22 people (11 Girls age 10-12, and 11 moms( before a show at the Orpheum. We made reservations at 5 before the 7:30 show. Our service was OUTSTANDING, they accommodated is when a part of the group was late due to traffic, they knew we were on a time limit due to the show and made sure our orders were putin before the ‘theatre rush’. They accommodated all the kids’ orders, never talked down to them like children, and easily kept them together with their moms’ tabs, even though there was a kids’ side and an adults’ side of the table. They even accommodated one of the adult’s gluten free requests.
It was a perfect start to a very fun evening. Thank you, Server Lily and staff, it was much appreciated!

We arrived during happy hour and sat at the bar before our 5 pm reservation before a show. We were not informed that happy hour was only at the bar. Had we been informed we would have ordered another prior to moving to our table. When we mentioned this to our table server, he shrugged and said "sorry" but did not offer to do anything about it. It would have been nice on this first time at Crave if he had arranged for us to get our second beverage at happy hour prices.

The waiter was generally not attentive and stopped by very little. It is understandable that things are busy, but we had empty glasses a number of times throughout the evening. He was pleasant, just not around much.

The food was very good and we enjoyed the evening overall.

Made the reservation for dinner before going to see Phantom at the Orpheum. Never expected to have a limited "Event" menu and claustrophobic seating in the dining room where they clearly added many additional tables to accommodate the theater goers. We have gone to Crave many times before a show and not had this experience. Super disappointing. We would have chosen another restaurant if we had known this. But at least the service was awesome!
