Food was ok, Sushi boat was good. The waitress was great but the other supporting staff were a bit passive I thought. Ok place for business gathering.

I go to Crave a lot and like the variety of foods they offer. I particularly like their Japanese menu items. The food is always good and service friendly.

My family had an early Sunday lunch. We have always had a good experience with the food and beverage choices. My sons always love the burgers and we have been fortunate to have experienced good service. The only odd thing about our experiences has been that the Mall of America location seems to have an aversion to seating anyone with a reservation at a "good" table in the restaurant area. Everyone who arrived early Sunday was seated in the bar so we didn't feel singled out, but we are often offered a table next to the bus station, even when I've specified our reservation was for a special occasion. Not sure who they are saving all of the nice booths for...

Crave and the Nordstrom Cafe are our choices when at the MOA. We like the variety in the menu and the small plate/large plate options.
I'm taking the time to review them now because, although we've had some hiccups with service a few times (the reception folks seem distracted and don't track waiting patrons that well), without exception they step up and go the extra mile to make it right. The bar staff seems to keep the place humming. It's a very busy restaurant, so there's no way they aren't going to have some issues from time to time, but we've been impressed with management's commitment to keeping the customer happy.

The Bourbon Steak we ordered Medium and it came out Well done and tough to cut and chew. The stroganoff meat tasted freezer burned and old. Overall very disappointed in the quality of the meat.
The smore dessert was the best part of the whole meal which is sad because the dinner was not inexpensive.
I would not dine at crave again.

The Mall made it difficult to enjoy CRAVE. The table we sat at was close to people walking by and felt like we were in a Jurassic Park movie with the bouncing. Water glasses literally shook every 10 seconds. We received an awesome rewards perk so it was still worth the time, but would never go back without the coupon perk.
The Sushi menu seemed like the same thing over and over just listed in different order. I love tuna, but some variety wouldn’t be bad.

 (Denver)·Dined on January 3, 2018

The overall experience was nice. I chose the restaurant for it's convenient location at the MOA. The main dining area is a bit crowded, but we selected a high-top table with seating for 5 in the bar that was pretty private and quiet. We enjoyed the sushi boat, which was more than enough food for 4 of us. Our service was acceptable, although the waitress' silly attitude might not be appreciated by all guests. I'd recommend it for a nice, healthy dinner at the MOA.

Food and service was perfect! We were seated right were servers pick up their orders so it was a little congested and noisy. If someone goes to the trouble to make a reservation they should be seated in the nicer areas. Save the least desirable seats for the walk ins. That is my only suggestion for improvement. Overall another good experience at Crave!

Crave is one of my favorite restaurants. This previous time, I ordered my usual dish of Seafood Paella. It was excellent and tasted just as amazing as it always has. My mom ordered the beef stroganoff. The cream sauce and noodles were great. The main issue with her dish was that some of the chunks of meat were ice cold. It was a bit difficult to flag someone down but when we finally did, the server handled it very well and immediately took the dish back to the kitchen and heated it. After that, everything was great.

We had a reservation but had to sit in the extra seating area even though the main dining room was empty. Huge noise with the amusement park and terrible atmosphere. We were hoping for a great location but apparently we were not good enough to be in the main dining room. Disappointed.

A group arrived late, ate somebody else’s sushi roll and then later stormed out because it was taking too long to get the bill. The reason why he was waiting so long was for the person who ordered their roll and got it eaten by them. Anyways, our servers were very patient and nice throughout this whole mess and the food was outstanding

We went to Crave on Christmas Eve. We wanted to have a nice special family dinner. It was not busy. Our waiter took forever to bring drinks. He also took too long to check and see if we needed refills. Since it was not busy, there really was no excuse to leave us waiting long more than one time. We usually love Crave, but I think the service and atmosphere is better at the Galleria Crave. The food wasn't as good as usual either. All in all a rather disappointing visit. We will avoid MOA Crave in the future.

We love Crave MOA. My friends and I have celebrated out xmas get together here for the past 6 years. They never disappoint. I was very impressed when the manager called me to reconfirm our table request and honored the request. I appreciate that she went out of her way to do that. We also had a wonderful server. She was attentive, friendly and accommodating.
