CRAVE - West End Ratings and Reviews
Computer was down at crave so we couldn’t cHeck out. We have been to crave several times in the last couple weeks, but I have found the food to be wanting. The chicken parm was barely a quarter inch thick & the coating not very flavorful. Also tried the lemon chicken which was disappointing. The 3 slivers of chicken breast didn’t equate to an ample serving.
I made reservations through opentable for 6 people. When we got to Crave they claimed that there was no record of the reservation even though I had the email confirmation. Luckily they were still able to accommodate us due to the fact that it was a Monday night. This is the second time this has happened to me with this website so I probably will not use it again.
A successful business lunch. Marcelo was an attentive, but quiet server. He ensured we had all we needed, and no request was unimportant. He ensure one of our guests, celebrating a birthday, felt special, and even delivered a birthday dessert without asking. Great spot for lunch, and the Samurai Sushi Boat was a huge hit for our party.
We had a 7pm reservation and were not seated until 7:30. The meat in the dishes in my opinion was a low end not very good meats but yet charged a higher end price. Probably will not go back for food. Also order a glass of wine and then was given the specials. If the waitress would have made me aware of the specials I would have had my wine for $3 cheaper.
I am grateful to the server for putting is in the back, in a secluded area, away from the loud music. She was great handling my challenge. Frankly, as an aging Baby Boomer, who has to wear hearing aids, and who hosts other Baby Boomers for lunch who have a hard time hearing, you might ask people upon coming in for seat in the front area where it is loud or in the back room where it is quiet. I'm not so sure I will go back there. Not because of the great service but because it is too loud.
We made a reservation and I think got the best spot in the house. We were in a booth with a curtain to pull if needed. My Mom, sisters, and myself had a great time. My daughter did not get her extra shrimp that she ordered, but forgot until it was too late to ask the waitress. So she nicely took that off of our bill. We would definitely recommend this place. That was the second time that I've been there. I live 6 hours away, so it is a treat to come there! Love it!
Had reservations and still took about 15 minutes to be seated. Plenty of empty tables. The first waiter didn’t approach our table for 45 minutes. They apoligized and provided a free appetizer. When we were done and didn’t ask for coffee or desert it took close to an hour to get the check. I had to get up and ask waiter if he forgot about us! Place wasn’t so busy to have such poor service.
Our waitress was helpful and very nice. We were seated right away and greeted by our waitress within a few minutes at which time she grab drink orders. She checked on us several times to make sure we didn't need additional drinks. The food was good and it was nice to be at a round table so our group of 6 could visit. It wasn't too loud, so we could all hear each other and carry on a nice conversation.
LOVED our server! His name was Q if I remember correctly. Super friendly and a great server. They messed up our order BUT Q our server and the manager were super professional and quickly helped fix everything. Definitely recommend, a little noisy but it’s a great place to eat the food was great as well!
The whole experience wasn’t good. The floor was slick, so my daughter fell and hurt her arm. The server accidentally spilled water on my husband’s phone. The 3 for $30 sushi menu didn’t include the Mexican roll like we hoped, and the choices available instead were comparable to grocery store sushi. We appreciated the free kids meals on Sunday, but my daughter didn’t care for the chicken tenders. She likes them almost everywhere else. The highlight of our meal was taking a few of our daughter’s fries.
A bit disappointed as our table wasn't ready and we had several physically challenged ladies that needed to be seated. The manager was helpful, but felt the front desk staff not so much. The server was terrific...lower stars on service due to front desk. We come twice a month with a group of 7 so would hope it improves.
The food and the drinks are consistently good at Crave. I love the variety, including sushi options. The appetizer menu is sometimes enough for me, and the salads are large enough for a meal. I asked for a cocktail not on the menu, and the bartender made it perfectly. My son and I were also given a dessert tonight by the manager which was a really nice perk! I have joined the rewards program as I tend to go to Crave often. This location is great for before or after a movie. The only thing is that the noise level is lively.
We went there for my wife's bday and the manager gave her $25 off at the start! I had the sea bass and it was awesome and she had the pasta which was very good too. The calamari was exceptional considering it was in Minnesota. The waiter we had did a great job and offered some recommendations we got. The desserts were excellent. Overall a very good night and we will be back.
