Loved our waiter and my meal was good ( didn’t ask my guest but he ate it all! ) would have preferred a better table location or a booth since I reserved ahead.

We were seated promptly in the bar area. It was really busy so the servers were hustling. Ethan took our order and then we never saw him again until he brought the bill. We had empty plates and glasses in front of us for twenty minutes without one person stopping by. Food was great but our dinner came out before our two appetizers. When our bill came, it was without asking if we wanted dessert, more drinks, are we we a reward member?...... worst experience ever at Crave.

Celebrated a triad of birthdays last night at crave west end. Had a fantastic time. They were really flexible; the food was great. The birthday desserts were spectacular. Especially exemplary was the service. Our waitress went above and beyond in accommodating everybody’s unique requests. And was fast efficient and accurate to a T. Made our special evening perfect.

Number nine sushi was very tasty. My boyfriend had the crushed pepper corn tuna special. He loved it and I had a bite also and I thought it was very good. Service was perfect; friendly, quick enough and we weren’t rushed to leave. I most appreciate not having plates removed when other people are still eating. So altogether service was good. The ambience was energetic but I don’t remember hearing loud music that we had to talk over which is another pet peeve.I’ve been here before and I always enjoy Crave

The food was absolutely terrible. We order the Brussels sprouts as an appetizer which were soooo bland and the “bacon” was more like spam. My husband and I both had medium done burgers which were totally pink and tasted “flame broiled” like they came from Burger King and not real meat

Great meal at Crave...was extremely busy but we had reservations and only had to wait about 5 minutes. Had the calamari as a shared app along with the bread, which was great. Both my husband and I had the shrimp, scallops and pasta which was amazing! Our friend had sushi and said it was really good/fresh. We then had dessert, and I ordered the coconut cake which was HUGE! We all ended up sharing that...my husband had the mini-tiramisu which is REALLY mini!! That is probably the only thing that we were a little disappointed in, however it was hilarious...it is smaller than a pudding cup so for a guy who is 225lbs. it didn't really cut it!!

I usually get really excited about the food at Crave. The salmon I ordered had no taste. It said it had a pomegranate sauce. I didn’t see or taste any sauce

This is my second time at this location. The first visit - the food was really good. This time - not so much. We were a party of 8, service started off really good, then it was as if we were an after thought. When the meals were entered, my meal was "held" in the system. Therefore I ate after everyone else. My Turkey Burger was very thin and room temp. The manager did apply a courtesy $10.00 "good faith" amount, however there was an additional "Employee Benefits" amount of $5.68 on the bill, this must be a MN thing, as I live in FL and we do not have that charge on our restaurant bill. So basically there was no significant discount given. I cannot say that I would go out of my way to go back to CRAVE.

Portion sizes have definitely gotten smaller. The curtain 1/2 table booth should be a) deep cleaned and b) revamped. Decent sushi.

One of my favorite locations! Our waiter was a ROCKSTAR. We were a loud group of 20+ celebrating my birthday and our server was absolutely amazing. Thank you so much for having us! You made the reservation process easy and the staff was polite and well prepared. Food is wonderful and the drinks were amazing too! Always will come to this location.

I like CRAVE but have to say was a little disappointed this time. I made reservations well in advance and was taken to this tiny table backed up against a piller in the back. I asked for a different table, and the person seating us went and helped someone else and then came back to us. Very strange. And it took a long time for our food order to make it to our table. Wasn't their best day.

We had a group of 17 for Sunday brunch. About 1/2 our group arrived about 10 minutes before our reservation time and we ended up being seated about 5-10 minutes past our reservation time before we were seated. The restaurant didn't seem particularly busy, so a little surprised. Beyond that, though, servers were great (they assigned two to our group - awesome) and food was excellent. Great variety of food on the menu! Would definitely return.

Not impressed with the food. Mac and cheese with grilled chicken was bland, and steak medallions with bourbon barbecue glaze was quite spicy, much more than expected. We don’t plan to go back to Crave again.

Tables are a bit close, kept getting bumped when servers needed to get past.
