We don’t dine out often and our recent experiences with service has been less than desirable. We decided on CRAVE and we couldn’t have been more pleased. The hostess greeted us politely, our server (Hannah) was excellent and the food was delicious. We were very pleased with our recent visit. Also impressed with their choices and separate gluten free menu.

The food and service was excellent! I feel bad, as I forgot to take my receipt to fill out the survey. I'll have to do better with that next time. It was my first time eating at Crave and will most certainly go back.

The only thing I think we would be better, is the lighting. I thought it was just a bit too dim. But I do have older eyes.

Thank you for the great customer service and the great food!

A little loud because it is in a mall. Great service from the time we entered the restaurant. Our waiter was attentive and friendly. The food was excellent. I had crab cakes and my daughter had sushi. They brought her a birthday dessert which was festive and delicious. Would definitely go back.

We had the sushi bento box for lunch. I had The spicy tuna variety and my dining partner had the spicy salmon. The food was delicious and nicely presented. What surprised us was that our waiter was not wearing a mask, although others were. I'd be curious what the restaurant's policy is on masking during Covid.

Crave was a great choice to celebrate my daughter's birthday. The unique cocktails were great, meals were excellent and the wine was equally as good! Our server, Jenny, made for a memorable occasion for both mom and daughter. And to top it all off, my daughter received a birthday treat complimentary of Crave with an awsome candle. Thank you Crave!

A Saturday night at the Mall of America is an absolute ZOO. While the service was excellent and the food good, there’s nothing relaxing about dining in the Mall unless you like a lot of noise. Just not for me.

I set the reservations with opentable and reached out to the restaurant personally to make the best birthday memory.
When we arrived we were sat in a booth (like a common diner) in an area so loud my date and I couldn't hear each other. The champagne I requested to be on the table wasn't and the crowd of people made the complimentary birthday (boxed) brownie as humiliating as having the server sing.
The dining room was very loud and filled with under dressed (my opinion) people. The server was as attentive as she could be but was very busy, she also seemed unsure when describing the sushi rolls.
I have NOTHING negative to say about the food, it was amazing and well prepared. We had the samurai boat and every bite was delicious. The Smashed Pear cocktail was very good to.
I guess I was just expecting a more elegant venue from CRAVE, I apologize if my opinion was incorrect.

Wow.....very disappointed. We and the guests with us were not impressed at all with the "surcharge" line item on our dining check at CRAVE. (a percentage of your total dining bill they now charge their customers)
We have been faithful customers of CRAVE for many, many years and in fact, would always make a point of dining there anytime we were in Minneapolis and in Sioux Falls. When we asked the waitress what the surcharge was for, she was quick to say "it is not a tip for her!" She went on to say it was an amount they are charging their customers to fund their managers healthcare insurance and other such things but she was not sure what all it was for......but again she said it was NOT a tip for her. In my opinion, this is a part of doing business and should not be a line item on my dining meal or experience. Shame on you, Crave.

Food was undercook; steak ordered medium and received it raw inside and burnt outside. Fire the cook which was working on Saturday September 25th at 630pm who was cooking the steaks!

We ordered the Lemon Garlic Chicken which came with mashed potatoes and brussel sprouts and it was excellent For dessert we ordered the Brownie S'Mores and it was 2 triangle shaped brownies on a graham cracker crust with browned marshmallows on top and ice cream. It was big enough to share and was delicious!

Made reservations back in June, one of the questions was it a special occasion?
It was our 40th wedding anniversary. When we got there the host tried to put us next to another couple in a half table half booth. We did ask to to move and the request was granted. But thought it was strange that the question as if it was a special occasion was asked. Why would they seat us in that spot?

Came here before a show and was not disappointed. Wine list was good. The simplest of appetizers was amazing, sushi rolls were huge and the best I've had. Wedge salad was split and perfect, turtle cheesecake for dessert was a great end. Will be back for sure.

13th Birthday meal for our son with his friends. ordered a bunch of appetizers the “avocado and chicken egg-rolls” were a huge hit and they all thought the sushi was good. Our waitress (Jennifer T) was fantastic and brought out a birthday dessert with a huge sparkling candle at the end of the meal. Great place for teen birthdays!
