The time from seating at the table to receiving appetizers was about 45 minutes. We felt that because we had kids, they gave us poorer service. Then all the meals came together, and mine was lukewarm. Not a pleasant experience. Don't go when the place is busy - they can't handle it.

Food quality was unremarkable. Restaurant was sold out of my first choice. Three of our four dinners were served cold (flatbread entree, shrimp on pasta). We will dine at other restaurants in the area next time.

Experience was good. Menu pricing and options were slightly different than what is listed online for the MoA location. That was kind of annoying since there were different options based on the location however I still ate my food and enjoyed it.

I went to Crave for the first time with my family from out of town. There was 10 of us and the servers were attentive. However, I ordered the tropical poke bowl and felt it lacked flavor. My husband and friend ordered chicken penne pasta and it was cold. I felt the $335 we paid for our meal was very high for the food we received. The food was nothing special for the price. We were also seated outside the restaurant in another room and felt disconnected from the rest of the restaurant.

Food = Great. Service = Good. Overall experience = Great.

Always satisfied at CRAVE. Never had a negative experience, but if I did, I would think that they would do anything in their power to rectify it immediately.

Keep up the great job!

Unfortunately the food was very Bland. This is the second time in the last 3 weeks that I've eaten there. I gave it a chance again for the beef stroganoff. This time my girlfriend had a chicken sandwich absolutely horrible. The host at the front would not accommodate us for a booth. The request is clear as day in OpenTable booth.

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!

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.

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.
