We had a great pre-show lunch at Crave. We wanted to start with a sushi roll and our server recommended something different than what we asked for. We were not disappointed! The service was great and the entree salads we ordered were fresh and delicious. Our only minor complaint was that the entrees came out just as we were getting started with our appetizer, but that seems to be a common problem in a lot of restaurants.

Tickets to the Orpheum, we thought Crave would be a great dinner venue. It was. Many others had the same idea. Despite the numbers of customers, we received exceptional service. I had the wedge salad and the hubby had eel sashimi and the tuna poke bowl. All were delicious. They also served baguette bread with butter. That was also very tasty. We are season ticket holders for the Orpheum Broadway series and I will book Crave for our show dates.

Service was great. Food was only okay. It was Valentine's day so they were very busy, but two of us had salmon and it was overcooked. Even when one of us asked for rare. It was crispy and overcooked. When the host asked about our meal and we said overcooked, they didn't even offer to re-do it. We were on a time crunch before a show so no time for that. So weren't impressed with that. It was a sign of the host asking for the sake of asking, but not really listening. There are plenty of great restaurants downtown, so I won't make this my first choice next time.

When out on the Valentines date with my wife . It was extremely refreshing to meet friendly people that were caring enough to put up with our requests . The drinks were amazing so was the food . Really enjoyed the my favorite pokey tuna that is hard to find at such a high quality as at craves . Our server was nice enough to take pictures of us having a good time . I would highly recommend this place to all my friends and family . Thank you guys at craves .

Unfortunately, we did not have a good experience at CRAVE. After being seated, we were not given a server. Eventually a manager noticed and came over to take our order. A couple minutes later a server did come by to introduce herself, but we didn't see her again until she brought us the bill. When the food did arrive, it wasn't our order. We had to flag down a random server to send it back. A few minutes later we were about to leave because we had to get to the Theater when our actual food arrived. We were very hungry by now so we ate. The food was good, but while the managers were nice, the service was unacceptable.

Great service and food. I had made a reservation and was seated ahead of the rest of my party. When they arrived and asked about the reservation they weren’t brought to the table and were seated elsewhere. I was disappointed because we lost 5-10 min of meeting time.

Crave Lasalle Plaza is one of my "go to" spots for casual dinner. On this visit my meal was simple: beef noodle soup and a side salad. The soup broth was some of the best I've ever tasted. Talk about bone broth. I felt better after the first spoon full. The salad was lovely and simple as well. I judge a restaurant not by the big things but by the simple things. Get those right and I'll be back again and again. And, I have been back. Again and again.

Great place to eat before seeing PMJ! The wait staff where excellent, explaining the menu in great detail and making suggestions. The tuna poke starter is to die for, the truffle fries decent but a little light in flavor. The main course was decent, my wife loved the sushi sandwich and mushroom pasta, my steak was ok, nothing exceptional for the price, but the shaved Brussel sprouts with bacon really made the dish. Overall we will dine there again next time we are in the cities!

If you have an event downtown this is a great place to go. I can't say they are known for any one thing. Kind of a big menu with sushi, pizza, burgers, main dishes. I wouldn't call it a foodie hangout but if you have a show across the street, it's a great place.

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.
