Say on high top near bar. Excellent service from Derrick. Comfortable noise level - easy to talk with my date. Shared a couple of small sushi rolls and drinks as well. Always a good spot for fun occasions at MOA.

Host and hostess were dirty. Dripping oily hair. Ask to be reseated three times because dirty tables and too close to others. The food was rushed and overly sauced to hide lack of care and poor quality. Server was fantastic as was the coconut cake but the rest of the food was average at best. Would not go back to MOA location.

Very disappointing, we requested a booth in our reservation which was not available upon arrival so we settled for a table in the middle of the very loud and busy restaurant. After a 15 minute wait our server arrived and we requested the vegan/vegetarian menu and were informed it was unavailable due to Valentine’s Day limited menu. At this point we decided to leave as there were barely any vegetarian option on the menu. This was our first attempt to try this restaurant and based on this experience would not return to this location.

It was a disappointing evening for me. The person checking us in couldn’t find the reservation and made me get my cell phone out and show her which I thought was quite rude. When my grilled chicken mushroom fetucine came the chicken was very tough and the sauce bland. The waiter however was excellent. But I won’t be returning there anytime soon.

The appetizer was excellent and the steak mediations were done perfect but the the New York strip had fat and gristle and medium seamed as if it was only on the grill for a minute.

I would give a 5 stars to our waitress and 0 stars for the hostess who was rude and disrespectful. Sat right by the kitchen are and the yelling of orders was ridiculous. Extremely poor experience and will not return or recommend.

Met an old friend for lunch and the servers were attentive while not being pesky as we took a while to order. I was really impressed with the service overall. I had the salmon salad with tabbouleh and it was perfectly prepared. I would go back to this place if I am ever at Mall of America again.

Food was really good. We had the chicken stir fry and beef medallions. Both great except they forgot the peanuts on the chicken stir fry. Server wasn't very warm/friendly. She seemed always super rushed and very few smiles. But she was efficient. It was New Year's Eve, so very busy. But all in all good!

It was my wifes Birthday. We are not fancy people and we dont spend money easily. We were disappointed in the service. It wasnt busy when we went. We ordered off the menu and didn’t request anything special. We felt it was over priced and under served.

Everything was good. Except it was Dec 31 and they had a very limited menu & we went because it was my birthday. I even marked that in my reservation. And they had no birthday gratuity because if the limited menu. They wouldn’t even give a free protege if cheesecake. They should have documented the very limited menu choices. It was kind of disappointing because I was looking forward to going there

I could have sworn I heard an advertisement about keto friendly menu options. There was an extensive gluten-free options but they were still high in carbs. Service was very good and she was willing to swap brussel sprouts in place of the potatoes which was much appreciated. Liked the holiday gift card deal.

Love Crave but not a fan of the outdoor area at the Mall of America’s. It feels like you’re eating at a food court, it’s loud and you can feel the floor moving when people walk by. Be sure you request a table indoors.

We love the sushi and poke bowls at Crave, however the music and noise level is too loud to have a conversation unless you’re seated right next to your dining companion.
