Everything was good. Except we were asked to vacate our table before we were ready to leave because of other reservations pending. There was no one visibly waiting and there were a couple of other empty tables.

We had a very nice lunch. This is a favorite place. It was not busy, presumably because of the Coronavirus. The service and food were very good, as always. I ordered the bunless turkey burger, which was very good and huge.

We have that "I hate cilantro" gene and found that the chefs here like to mix it in a lot of their sauces and other dishes. But, fortunately our waiter made a serious effort to guide us and the kitchen staff to limit our exposure to it. The food we eventually settled on was tasty. The wine was good. There is free parking in easy walking distance. So this is a good choice in spite of the cilantro fetish. And lots of people really like cilantro, so go for it.

Went for brunch and food was just okay. Service was okay, but not great. Fire alarm was going off due to smoke in the kitchen. Nothing was complimentary due to the smoke and loud alarm. We had to leave restaurant to get fresh air due to how smokey it was.

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 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.

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.
