I enjoyed my dinner with shrimp and scallops on fettuccine. My husband had the ribeye, asked for it to be prepared rare. It was brought to him well done. Asparagus on the plate looked as if it was a thick branch of greens, being unable to eat it. Mine had artichokes in it, that were too tough to chew. Once I picked the artichokes out, mine was fine.

Reliably good every time. I appreciate the fact that the menu is rather broad, allowing many choices when you are with multiple people. Love the Ahi tuna Poke Bowl - always a favorite!

Friendly, welcoming atmosphere in which to gather with friends! Our wait staff was spectacular in every way! Appreciated her attentiveness and also the support staff's attention to detail. A bit pricey for our budget, but the food was tasty and attractively presented.

Food was good. Had noon reservations for a large group and were seated in the middle of the room. It was hard to hear and have a conversation as a group. If we would have waiting to meet a little later would have been better for noise. Great location.

This was the fourth consecutive Valentines Day that we have eaten at West End Crave. As before, I gave detailed preferences of where we would like to be seated.

We WERE accommodated with a large booth, but it wasn't in the mid-section of the restaurant. It was on the main aisle to the right of the hostess entry desk. Hence, it was very noisy and almost seemed like the "dreaded" back room.

To me, ambience is half of the dining experience. We DO not "just go out on a week night/weekend" to CRAVE West End, but choose it annually for Valentines Day and occasional Birthdays. Since there are so many poor choice- possibilities of where we might get seated, this may be our last Valentine's Day spent there.

The food and service were great. We were in a smaller back room with no windows, and were joined by a large and noisy group. Next time I would request a table by the window in the main room, though I suspect the noise level might still be a bit above my comfort level.

The host sat us in a private party room where a group larger than 20 people were yelling across a long dining table and walking about the room during their meal. We could barley hear each other during our Valentines Day dinner. This room seemed to be where the overflow from the Valentines Day rush was seated so that Crave was able to max out on reservations. The menu featured a Valentines Day coursed menu that tasted like it had been sitting in the kitchen for hours. Bread was soggy and steak was dry. We will never go here again. Tried to grab a bite to eat before our movie in West End but next time will keep to our independent restaurants in the North Loop. Our server was good.
He was the only thing that kept us from getting up and leaving.

The service sucks we waited like 20 mins before we was offered complimentary bread and water. Ofter waiting 1.5hrs for our food it was burned and tasted burnt,dry and distasteful so we paid and got it packed up left a good tip and left. No one check and see how we was doing or anything

Would not recommend for any kind of special occasion as overall ambiance is very loud and tables are extremely close to each other.

Given how expensive the food was, I had greater expectations. The food was okay, but not great. Also came out luke-warm so I am sure it was sitting for awhile. Waited 30 minutes after reservation time before being seated. The decor is great, but the noise level is not.

Way too loud with pointless thumping bass music that made conversation difficult. If we dine at Crave again, it will be at the Galleria location.

Fabulous Tuna Poke and very nice portions all around. Our service was wonderful. The stroganoff missed the mark, though. It didn't have any distinctive flavor, even with the wasabi laced cream.

We enjoyed the excellent food and attentive service. It was a noisy happy room at mid day. Maybe a little too loud but worth it. My friend was very impressed with the lamb burger and I just loved my mushroom and beef blended burger. We’ll be back!

Ordered salmon cooked to medium. It was rare. Waiter brought out another filet and it was even rarer than the first. Third time was better, but not great. Sort of turned me off to salmon for awhile. Would have been nice to have the cost of the filet removed from the bill without having to ask (which i didn't). Waiter was great. Food disappointing, when it's usually better.

Given that it was Super Bowl weekend, I'd make some allowances, but our entrees arrived before we'd finished our appetizers and were cold. Wait staff never asked if we wanted wine and had to be prompted to offer dessert. Food was decent to good and staff were friendly enough, but deficient service tainted the evening.

The firecracker shrimp app was excellent, but both of our salmon dishes (two different ones) were tasteless. Had no appeal.
Service was great. Very load and hard to hear one another.

It's consistently very good and provides a lot of interesting menu options that we always seem to be back. I like that the food portions are just right and they don't over do it with dainty portions with ingredients you need to google. Right price point ranges as well. Keep doing what you're doing.

Good food, great drinks, and a fairly decent price for what it is. There is a great atmosphere here and the wait staff is generally pretty good. The sushi is fantastic if you are in to that sort of thing.
