I must say, it's the first time I've been disappointed at Crave. We tried the special Valentine's Day 4-course dinner. The food looked and tasted pre-made and like it had been standing for too long. I'll never to that again, a lesson learned!

It was fantastic. The food was great and the service was steller. It was pretty loud though which was kind of a bummer.

It was Valentine’s Day. So we expected it to be busy. About the only real complaint was they put the tables to close together that you could eat off of the tables on either side of you. The steak was a little tough and the lamb chops were very tiny. Definitely not worth it. The atmosphere was nice. Service was pretty good.

We were a party of 4 who ordered appetizers, drinks, dinner and dessert. Everything was delicious and delightful but the service was really good. We had Tyler as our server and he was knowledgeable, helpful and very friendly.
We had a great time and would definitely recommend.

Server was a bit pushy on moving us along to sign the bill when we were having a nice conversation after wrapping up lunch. Either he needed to leave or free up the table but there were plenty of open tables around us. Kind of a put off I didn’t expect from Crave.

Good food great atmosphere. Waiter is a bit slow.
Desserts are exceptional.

Adventurous menu. Something for everyone but sushi is their strength.

Prices are way too high. There is no lunch menu on the weekends, and that is what we had come for. Food quality is okay. Parking is difficult.

The reservation process was very helpful because we were a big group and they wanted to make sure we were taken care off. The food was excellent and we had a great time!

Had requested standard seating in our reservation, knowing it would be a busy Friday night. We were instead brought to a high top in the bar area. When I reiterated the desire/need for standard seating, the host apologized and brought us back to the (crowded) front area to wait for tables to open up—took about 15 minutes after our reserved time. Turned out okay and we weren’t in a rush, but seems like they should’ve been more on top of that, since we made reservations a week in advance.

Crave is a fun place to go with great cocktails, and was the perfect choice for this particular group dinner because of all of the gluten free choices. Plus, half price sushi on Mondays? Fantastic.

Great ambiance. Nice to have the music at a low to moderate level. Food was great. Though we didn’t expect the pesto pasta to be spicy. World have been nice to get a heads up on that. Salmon tabuleh salad divine!

Fun place! Very extensive menu for all kinds of eaters, great wine selection and really lively. Sports on TV but more upscale than a sports bar, warm lighting and great service.
