We arrived a bit early for our reservation, but were seated promptly. The service was great; enough check-ins without being intrusive. We ordered an appetizer, two entrees, and dessert. All of our food was fresh, appropriate temperatures, attractively plated, and delicious. I found the cocktails to be a bit over priced, but I enjoyed those I had and my husband was happy with the beer selection.

We have been to this location once before and had a great experience inside the dim-lit, quiet restaurant.
Thus, we decided to actually make a reservation, drive the 45 minutes to this specific location and have a nice date night away from our kiddos for the evening.
I must say that I was terribly disappointed. Not only did I make a reservation, but when we arrived at the restaurant, we had to wait a few minute to be seated. Then, when we were seated, we were seated outside of the actual restaurant. Our chairs were outdoor seating chairs and it was incredibly loud with Nickelodeon universe right next to us and two large parties with multiple kids next to us.
I understand this seating if we had been casually walking through the mall and wanting a bite to eat. However, this was a date. We ordered over $150 of food and wine and could not even hear our conversation.
Lesson learned: if you make reservation, it does not mean you will be in the restaurant.

We love Crave, but will not go back to this location.

The food was good, a bit expensive, but what I expected. The waiter was extremely rude. When asked if he could fix a drink for us that did not taste good, he rolled his eyes and then made a notion to not check in on us the rest of the time we were dining. He was rude from the start, and it did not change throughout the meal.

Reservations worked out great. We were sat at our reserved time. Server was excellent. Beer choices were not great, so I ordered a cocktail, but it was not very good. A mule is one of the most popular drinks right now, one would think that most establishments would know how to make it and present it. So, that was disappointing. The menu was great with many different options. I opted for the sushi and it was very good. Dessert was excellent. Here is where a possible 4 or 5 star review turned into a 3: We were a sat by the open area which runs along side the mall walkway. It was extremely loud and did not give us the intimate dining experience we were after (and the entire reason we made reservations here to begin with). The interior of Crave has low lighting and looks quite nice. But we were stuck with people walking within 3 feet of our table, kids running and having late night meltdowns, and hearing the the music from the lively restaurant across the walkway. If I had to do it all again, I would have asked for a different seat, but we were hungry, it was already getting late, and it appeared the place looked fully booked. Lesson learned.

We were a party of nine on Easter for brunch at 1:30 p.m.and seating was in an overflow lanai. Unfortunately the area was outside the main restaurant next to the amusement park. The amusement park is very loud. The lanai itself is spacious, bright and pleasant but the sound of the amusement park was extremely loud. The table was set up but had not been cleaned very well . It was roomy enough for all nine of us. The food was good, fruit was very fresh and flavorful, green salads were fresh and tasty, the beef was a little tough but flavorful and they had some cute desserts. I wish there had been a couple more veggie side dishes. The enchiladas and jambalaya seemed odd. The breakfast items were basic and one of the teenagers in our group said the bacon had an odd flavor. The big hit was the sushi. I did not eat any but my husband and two sons both said it was good. I appreciated finding a place that could accommodate nine of us but because of the noise of the amusement park I would make sure we would not be seated on the lanai.

Food was OK, good selection. Service was poor. Plates stacked up on the table 5 high, no one to refill water or coffee. At one point I got my own coffee. Paying $160 for a family of 4 was not worth it. I will not go back. I have been to 5 restaurants at MOA, and it seams NO ONE knows what good service is anymore. Very disappointed.

Usually the food is very good, the Easter Buffet was just ok Food was fairly warm but sat out too long and was very dry for most thing and rather messy. Not worth the price they were charging for it, expected better for this place.

Our food was ok. I realize its hard to make it spectacular when as a buffet, but wanted a little more flavor and taste to the dishes. I was surprised and a bit disappointed because usually we have good experiences at Crave at both Woodbury location and the MOA location. Most of the hot food at the egg table was bland. We asked for salsa and surprisingly - bland again. No kick, needed salt, etc. Ham was very dry. We loved the salads. Most desserts were good too.

My first time for the Easter Brunch. Crave was a good experience. The food was good, ambiance was good. Overall, I give it a 4 stars. Maybe for the next time, fruits could be rotated out more and egg dishes could be cook to order. I would give Crave another try.

The service was a little slow and the waitress appeared distracted. The service was a little slow and the waitress appeared distracted. It took forever to get our beverage order in, the drinks came slowly and our meal came by a different server and we weren't given cutlery. Also, my daughter who was the first to order, ordered an appetizer and we never got it which was disappointing. The reason being the waitress misunderstood my order, I was 3rd to order and she thought I was ordering an appetizer as my main dish and when I pointed out from the menu what my order was (during the order process) which was an entrée, she in her mind cancelled my daughters appetizer order. It didn't make sense and she did apologize but it was odd. Saving grace on this experience was that the food was great.

I had a sort of Caeser which was one of the best salads that I have had! The sweet flavors of balsamic vinegar was a delicious contrast to other flavors offered in the salad. While the salad had several components, it pulled together very well!!

Honestly, we were terribly disappointed. Host treated us like we weren't good enough to be there. Our waiter didn't approve of our order and shook his head when we presented a coupon from another shopping experience from within the mall. The food was mediocre and it didn't live up to the hype. We were expecting upscale and got subpar.
