Crave is always reliably great. Our brunch of caprese omelette and French toast was tasty. Our server proactively split each entree onto two plates. Good OJ. Good music was playing. Good times! It’s nice to escape cooking and reality for a little while.

Crave made sure local covid mandates are followed. The staff was attentive to our needs and the food was fantastic. The food was flavorful and prepared exactly to order. The wine was wonderful as well. 😉

We had made reservations at 7:45pm on Wednesday February 24th. We arrived at the restaurant and were seated in a central location between the bar and the kitchen. We sat there for OVER 1 HOUR and our server NEVER RETURNED to our table. At 8:50pm, 10 mins before close, we left, menus still on the table, water glasses empty. This was beyond rude. The manager in his khakis and red button up shirt walked by us several times, and not a single employee stopped at our table to take our order. Horrific service...

It was a fairly quiet night at CRAVE, not uncommon in these socially-distant times. Our waiter was personable and attentive during the dinner course, and service was very fast. For some reason, service slowed down quite a bit with the dessert course, but ultimately it did arrive and was quite tasty.

We are a young family with two small kids and needed to get out of the house on a very cold day. The service, food and atmosphere exceeded our expectations and we will be back!

Absolutely love crave and every time I get the same amount of wonderful service. Our server was Evan D. and he was able to pick drinks out for us that we would enjoy and suggested different things to try. He always checked on us to make sure we are enjoying what we have.

Attentive staff with consistent quality of food. They seem to be challenged with inventory on certain wines but this is only as of recent.

We've been to the West End location once before and, while the food was great, the service was mediocre at best. Nevertheless, we figured it was an anomaly and made reservations. Being a Saturday evening, it was crowded but tables were set up in a responsible, socially-distant manner. Our server appeared to have three other tables - couples at each save for one table that had four people. I made this observation only because our service was, again, terrible. Including the time where she took our drink and meal orders, I would bet our server visited our table no more than six times. She didn't appear stressed or over-worked - just ambivalent; I don't think she could have cared less we were there or not - we were just another customer. It isn't an inexpensive place to eat; service should be better. While we still intend to visit CRAVE, we will NOT be going to their West End location ever again.

It was way too crowed. I had a reservation and still had to wait 10 min awkwardly standing by someone’s table while they ate. During COVID!

The only thing that was exceptional were our specialty cocktails.
Chicken avocado egg roll appetizers were served slightly warm, (not hot). Sushi was just okay. Service and ambiance was great. Overall the price seems high for the value.

The service was wonderful and food perfect (and quick!). There's a heavy bottleneck to get past the bar/hightops which doesn't feel very COVID-safe, but the booths themselves are great. Love being able to get beer and good plant-based food!

The food was great. Honestly one of the best meals I’ve had there... however, the ventilation is terrible. You walk into the smell of stagnant cooking oils and it only gets worse. My boyfriend and I both had to shower as soon as we got home and wash all of our clothing/coats. I am somewhat sensitive to smells and had a headache by the time I left. It was never like this in the past, potentially some type of newly installed/updated ventilation system? Whatever it is, it’s not working.

The food was delicious and the atmosphere was perfect. My only complaint was we were sat at the front next to the hostess station and the machine kept beeping right behind my ear. I also had the pineapple mojito perfect tropical summer flavor I was looking for during a MN Winter.

Crave West End was a very good experience especially when this pandemic has kept us out of the restaurants for sometime and was the first I sat in a restaurant for a long time. All was good! easy to reserve, food good, service good and very relaxing.

Reservation made on this site, arrived at Crave to strange looks from the staff because they were only doing takeout and no dining in. Not sure which company needs to coordinate with which but it would have been nice to know that.

Always great service at Crave! Fresh-made sushi is always delish as well. Appreciate the gluten free options and modifications. This is one of our "go to" favorite places for a quick bit, get away place to relax and enjoy...any day of the week.
