The server was very good. The booth seating was awful, holes in the imitation leather seats, come on man. It was special to receive a flaming candle birthday desert. The pasta and cocktails were over priced.

They sat us in the overflow area in the mall even though our reservation stated we were celebrating our anniversary. It was loud from the noise of roller coaster. We were given our food but not given utensils or a napkin.

Crave is my all time favorite restaurant when in the cities, so I was very sad that we had a less than stellar experience. We had 3 different problems with our menu items. The server was very apologetic about it. A portion of our meal was comped, which I appreciate; however, the experience makes me less excited to return in the future. I realize the kitchen may have been short staffed due to COVID, and we were one of the last tables to be served that day, so maybe they just had a long hard day.

I hope that this review helps to improve the quality control of the food. I commend the server for dealing with the issues so professionally.

First thing brought out was hot towels for our hands. Not sure if it was a covid precaution or a regular thing they do. The drinks were good ordered the blood orange margarita was a bit strong the waitress took it back for the bartender to add more juice came back perfect. She was totally understanding. The food was delicious the truffle fries as a starter was so good. And for an entrée I ordered the shrimp and scallop sauté. I recommend going

My daughter saved up all her birthday money to take her friends out to dinner to celebrate. I gave the staff $50.00 to use as the tip make sure it was worth their time to serve five polite, very respectful teenage girls. The service was awful, the server was rude and acted bothered. She received no birthday recognition or kindness at all. It was heartbreaking to have to listen to her tell me how it went. I wish I was able to write a stellar 5 star review.

We love going to Crave, but the MoA location is starting to look a bit dated. There was a chunk missing out of our table for example. Not that this affects the food or the service of course.

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.
