We have always had a great experience here and tonight was no exception. I had sushi and my husband had steak. Both were exceptional. Most restaurants that try to do several types of cuisine fall short on some. That is not the case here. We will be back!

The service was a little slow this time. It was good once we got our food as usual. Will return as it's a favorite for us.

Super nice place to be. You are in the Mall of A, but also feel a little bit away from it.

Perfect meal, perfect place, fantastic staff.

The waitress was excellent. We had a out of town business customer with us from Maine. The waitress and our customer discussed the menu. She picked his dinner and he loved it. The interaction with the restaurant manager was great and a excellent way of engaging the customer. We will be back for many more business meetings. Excellent time.

Thank you

Chicken and pasta dinner, chicken was hard as a rock. Steak ordered medium, steak was cooked throughout. Let the manager know about the poor chicken. They deducted $6.oo for the chicken off a $130 tab. Yikes! Will not be going back there again. Server tried hard.

The food was good when it finally arrived, 1.5 hours later.

We spoke to the manager, kind of apologized, but it was more of a lecture on how busy they were.

We usually love dining at Crave, and have always enjoyed the locations at Galleria and West End. Our experience at the MOA location was so disappointing! The three of us waited over one hour for our food, then 2 of the 3 entrees were incorrect. My steak was cold, and our sister-in-law’s “grilled” skewer of shrimp was even colder. My wife got the wrong salad. We were so hungry by the time the food finally arrived that we ate it anyway.
Then when I slid out of the booth, I realized my wife had been sitting in a broken section of the bench which was not comfortable. Not going back there again!

We have a very 'spirited' three year old, who does not know how to sit still. We really appreciated the waitresses kindness towards us and being friendly with our daughter. My husband had the couscous & quinoa bowl and commented that it wasn't spicy like started but still tasted fresh. I had two sushi rolls which were very well made and great tasting.

We had a poor experience. Cold food. Server took my entree back to the kitchen, but it came back the same way. The manager was great, and removed my entree from the bill. But it was our anniversary so it completely blew the night.

This was my wife's first visit to Crave and I have not been to the restaurant in several years, so we wanted to experience a variety of tastes from the menu. We started with the fig and roasted peach flatbread as an appetizer which did not disappoint us with the variety of unique flavors. For an entrée, we ordered just one shrimp and scallop sauté meal and a side of the roasted Brussel sprouts to split. The shrimp and scallops were exquisitely seasoned and tender. The Brussel sprouts contained bacon which went very well as an accompanying side dish. This was more than enough for us to eat. The only issue we experienced was the rich lobster cream sauce on the pasta. This was a bit too rich for our tastes and stomachs. We do, however, thank you for a wonderful culinary experience.

They ran out of food... whoops. Then they tried to charge me for the food I ordered that they did not have...

This was our first time at this Crave location meeting friends from out of state. Our service/server was outstanding! Everyone enjoyed their food including the starters - truffle fries and spicy shrimp - and entrees - burgers, salads, beef stroganoff, chicken stir-fry. Even had the 50th anniversary Chateau St. Michelle Cabernet I'd been looking to try! Great experience.

It was so noisy we could not talk to each other. Out table was set in the back by the food station so waiters and waitresses were running by all evening while we were trying to eat.
For This restaurant it is best to have a booth and be out of the fray.

My Partner and I are avid fans of Crave, we are also Members of the On-line Club. We are always treated with such respect and kindness. The PLETHORA of Choices are FANTASTIC. The Waiters have been very ATTRACTIVE, Waitress's very helpful. So helpful, that we have always given nice tips. Crave is an AWESOME Place with Friendly, Attractive Staff. The Atmosphere is hip, but relaxing, so relaxing at times, that you forget its inside the MALL!!!!! We always look forward to our next visit. CRAVE ROCKS!!! We did hit a few bumpy times. But Water under the Bridge.
