Overall, a fun evening out but be prepared to be packed in. There's not much room between most tables. Awesome cocktails; pricey, but worth it. Food was good. Not over the top but met our expectations.
I enjoyed my dinner with shrimp and scallops on fettuccine. My husband had the ribeye, asked for it to be prepared rare. It was brought to him well done. Asparagus on the plate looked as if it was a thick branch of greens, being unable to eat it. Mine had artichokes in it, that were too tough to chew. Once I picked the artichokes out, mine was fine.
Reliably good every time. I appreciate the fact that the menu is rather broad, allowing many choices when you are with multiple people. Love the Ahi tuna Poke Bowl - always a favorite!
Friendly, welcoming atmosphere in which to gather with friends! Our wait staff was spectacular in every way! Appreciated her attentiveness and also the support staff's attention to detail. A bit pricey for our budget, but the food was tasty and attractively presented.
I love this crave location because it’s always busy and the dining area is huge. The menu has so many different options for all palettes and the staff is happy to help recommend their favorites.
Food and service was awesome. Low noice level, friendly people, awesome scene. Can't wait to stop by.
We left the food was just okay and expensive for what we got.
Service, etc was good
Great service. Got seated right away. Wasn't too crowded for a Thursday night. Could enjoy dinner and have a good conversation without yelling at each other. Great food and drink selection.
Food was good. Had noon reservations for a large group and were seated in the middle of the room. It was hard to hear and have a conversation as a group. If we would have waiting to meet a little later would have been better for noise. Great location.
This was the fourth consecutive Valentines Day that we have eaten at West End Crave. As before, I gave detailed preferences of where we would like to be seated.
We WERE accommodated with a large booth, but it wasn't in the mid-section of the restaurant. It was on the main aisle to the right of the hostess entry desk. Hence, it was very noisy and almost seemed like the "dreaded" back room.
To me, ambience is half of the dining experience. We DO not "just go out on a week night/weekend" to CRAVE West End, but choose it annually for Valentines Day and occasional Birthdays. Since there are so many poor choice- possibilities of where we might get seated, this may be our last Valentine's Day spent there.
The food and service were great. We were in a smaller back room with no windows, and were joined by a large and noisy group. Next time I would request a table by the window in the main room, though I suspect the noise level might still be a bit above my comfort level.
The host sat us in a private party room where a group larger than 20 people were yelling across a long dining table and walking about the room during their meal. We could barley hear each other during our Valentines Day dinner. This room seemed to be where the overflow from the Valentines Day rush was seated so that Crave was able to max out on reservations. The menu featured a Valentines Day coursed menu that tasted like it had been sitting in the kitchen for hours. Bread was soggy and steak was dry. We will never go here again. Tried to grab a bite to eat before our movie in West End but next time will keep to our independent restaurants in the North Loop. Our server was good.
He was the only thing that kept us from getting up and leaving.
The service sucks we waited like 20 mins before we was offered complimentary bread and water. Ofter waiting 1.5hrs for our food it was burned and tasted burnt,dry and distasteful so we paid and got it packed up left a good tip and left. No one check and see how we was doing or anything
Would not recommend for any kind of special occasion as overall ambiance is very loud and tables are extremely close to each other.
Given how expensive the food was, I had greater expectations. The food was okay, but not great. Also came out luke-warm so I am sure it was sitting for awhile. Waited 30 minutes after reservation time before being seated. The decor is great, but the noise level is not.
