Disappointed in a couple things, server told us you were not taking paper coupons, which we had a $5 off one, bread no longer being served and out of your signature white coconut cake when we were there to celebrate a birthday. $19 for a salad and no bread? I feel we paid a premium price for moderate service and disappointing food.

Just want to say it was our first time there and had an amazing experience. The food and drinks were spectacular. It was my daughter's birthday and our server was amazing and treated her like a birthday girl. I MUST STRESS HOW GOOD, NICE, PUNCTUAL AND ABSOLUTELY CURTIOUS OUR SERVER WAS. I HAVE NEVER IN MY LIFE EXPERIENCED A SERVER LIKE HIM. STORM,H THANK YOU.

We had 'Bamboo Bites' and 'Surf and Turf' sushi which was very good. For drinks we enjoyed pineapple mojitos and an Angry Dragon martini. For dessert we split the Coconut cake. Sooo good!! Service was quick and friendly. Restaurant was clean. Dining was spaced out due to covid restrictions. Had a great time and would recommend this place!

This is the second restaurant I've been to since Covid so I was pleased that the booths were large and roomy. There is also an added fiberglass barrier which extends the height of the booth which adds to the privacy.

Our server was attentive enough. I had the gf flat bread which is essentially a pizza - was tasty and was thankful for the gf choices. Portion was large, ingredients were fresh and I had enough to bring home a couple of pieces.

I would definitely go here again if I was in the burbs without a lot of choices. Menu is big and has a little of everything, so I'm sure I could try several other things and be happy with them as well, especially when dining with a group or people that can't agree on cuisine.

We were sat at a round 5-top table, for two of us. We asked the hostess and our server if we could change tables but they didn't have anything else available, understandably. There were 4-5 open 4-top tables open during our entire meal. We were sat next to the bathroom entrance and (what I'm guessing was) the private room, it was very loud and started to get difficult to enjoy our meal towards the end. We got our dessert to go so we could leave. It felt very awkward as our table was bumped into a few times by people going to the bathroom.

We love Crave but it was a semi-disappointing trip for having a reservation.

Our food and service outside of that was great, per usual. Truffle fries are always our go to starter. I had the Chicken Caprese Rosa and my husband had the filet, the portion sizes are great as we always have leftovers. The smoker was down for a smoked Manhattan, so he just got a regular Manhattan. Our server, who we've had a few times, was so attentive to us. She always does a wonderful job and is helpful with dietary restrictions.

We are looking forward to our next trip, but I will make sure to request a booth in the reservation.

Appreciate the set up and separation between tables. Crave has done a nice job of prioritizing safety during COVID and allowed for a pleasant dining experience. Great service, very attentive and multiple staff assisted us during Easter brunch.
The food was really good but goodness, there was a ridiculous amount of food brought to our table of 4. We had reservations for the Easter holiday and it was served family style, which was fun. But the food kept coming! Six courses with each course made up of at least 2 dishes each (except for dessert)... WAY TOO MUCH! We took home 6 to-go boxes. It felt a little gluttonous and truly, that food could have gone to the less fortunate.

My family of 6 (4 adults and 2 kids) made reservations for the Easter brunch. The amount of food we were given was obscene. It was hugely wasteful to give 4 adults and 2 kids enough food for 8-10 adults. The servings were gigantic! It was not what we expected. We knew it would not be buffet style due to COVID but we had no idea the quantity of food that we would be served. We asked the waitress if she could please just bring us half the amount of food we started to get and she said that she could not do that. She apologized and said the food had to be served as it was given. We brought tons of food home with us and, still, the waste of the food we could not eat, and did not bring with us, was just sinful. The amount of food was so overwhelming that it really ruined the brunch for us. The whole affair felt gluttonous.

We have eaten at Crave before, many times, and when we can order from the menu, or go through a normal buffet line, the food is served in more reasonable amounts or you can at least just take a little of what you like. The quality of the food is excellent and always has been every time we have eaten there. I think that whoever conceived of this 2021 Easter brunch idea did not think it through very well.

Staff was amazing, and our server Gavin was tremendous. He had good knowledge of the menu and gave good suggestions. Food was really good. The only negative is the Old Fashioned was the worst I have ever had. Bartenders need to keep in mind keeping a balance of alcohol, fruits, sugars, and bitters. Double the size of the glass so all items fit. Remember to muddle cherries, orange slice NOT rind, simple syrup, and bitters. This drink was straight booze. time to retrain bartenders on recipes

Very gracious with parents arriving late to table. COVID spacing awesome. I had walleye shore lunch and would not recommend - thin fish fillets with little flavor.

Such a great menu! Variety, quality and, oh, did I mention their drink, wine and beer selection? Outstanding! I recommend starting with the Crab Cakes. And, ending with the Cheese Cake. In between? Up to your taste, but you can't go wrong with Sushi.

Shout out for Bailey our server! She is AWESOME! Thanks for taking such good care of us.

Ask for a different table if they try to seat you across the lobby from the door. There were too many people standing around not socially distanced waiting for good pick up & / or a table & the crowds coming and going were very distracting.

The food was good and the service was very good. They apply a 3.5% charge to the bill which even the waitress could not explain. They don't tell you until the bill comes. They offered to remove it, well it seems like a bad business move to make people feel like they're being nickel and dimed. If they have to cover costs, they should simply increase the prices so you know what you're paying for it before you sit down.

I booked because it was St. Patricks Day and I thought it would be crowded at all the local establishments. I was surprised that CRAVE was quiet. It was nice. We could hear each other and had some great food. Thanks for a good experience!
