Normally on point. Crave looks to be struggling to get back up and going. Food quality was meh. Will assume it was an off night or post pandemic pains that they will recover from. Will go back just will hold off for a bit.

The Crave brand is well established and consistent, and this location will not disappoint. If you're looking for a fun night out where the food is good and the atmosphere is festive -- all without breaking the bank -- then Crave West End is the place to go.

It seems as though when you make a reservation from open table we seem to get the less desirable seating locations. There were several open tables. We requested a high top online but we were put in the rear of the restaurant by the back door where there was scraps food on the floor and carpet and we watched numerous ppl walk right by it. Never giving it a thought. They were not tiny pieces of food either. I have been there multiple times as we would have our corporate lunches at this location. Our server was excellent and pushed to upsell items. she was very attentive. thank you.

Menu as reduced due to Covid and favorite items remove in both drinks and food.

Grossly under staffed as a single bartender attempted to manage making all drinks, serving bar patrons and most tables in the restaurant. Other staff did not show up for shift. Manager sat in his office and never came out to view the situation or offer to help.

Bartender was great but stretched too thin . Waited too long for service.

Food was good.

Food was delicious! We were seated in the bar area and the music was just a touch too loud for us to carry a conversation. We waited a little long for service at times, but food was great, and service was good (just a bit slower than expected).

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.
