Asked for a table and host tried to seat us in a booth. We said wanted table so he took us to a table crowed by a table next to it and a piller. Then tried to move the table. All that when there many tables available so finally sat us at a table over. Appetizer took half hour to get. Also when we were not quite done and the only diners in the section they started pulling curtains around the section as they were having a private party that evening. They started pulling curtains at 3:00pm!!! First time at Crave in Woodbury. Not sure will go back.

A local favorite for my wife and me. Always great service and tasty food with an evolving menu depending on the season.
I do wish that they would bring back the “date night” special.

We ordered the lettuce and two orders of sushi rolls to share between the two of us, and it was all very good. Unfortunately we needed to eat gluten-free, which presented a bit of a challenge for our waiter, who admitted he didn't know a whole lot about that. That's fine. But I wanted some chips and guacamole to fill up with only having sushi. No dice. The chips are are flash-fried in oil shared with other items. WHY would you do that?! Taco chips are a staple for people who can't eat gluten!
So while it was all good, we went home and had a big bowl of popcorn.

We went there for a date and it was so loud we literally agreed to stop talking and just talk after we left. It was a Friday night at 7 so it was busy. He had the spicy California rolls and I had salad with cauliflower steak. We spent a long time there because service was so slow.

The food was fantastic and the service was very prompt and courteous. The greeters were flexible in assigning seating as we wanted a booth and the initially brought us to a table. The options for types of meals is huge and the menu explains some of them in detail. It is a little overpriced compared to many similar restaurants.

We had an unusually bad experience starting with the waiter telling us that they went straw free and was told he may have some straws in the back. Every table around us had straws. The glasses looked dirty on the outside and I wasn't putting my lips where the bartender / waiter handled the glass with his hands. Waiter forgot the lemon for the water. After a reminder he brought an empty glass with a lemon on the rim, lemon looked terrible (pre-used). Then when we asked for bread, we got two connected rolls that was hard as croutons and the Butter was very old from sitting around. We never had this bad experience before at Crave or even at this location. Main entrees were good, only issue was the truffle fries tasted re-fried, hard and crusty. We promptly paid the bill with 15% tip and left. My adult daughter said she will never be back. I come here weekly and never had this bad experience, but I mostly come for lunch and not dinner.

Food was good. I am on a special diet and the description was lacking on some ingredients that I can't eat. Had to dissect the food when it arrived. Ask lots of questions if you have dietary concerns.

The service was very good, but the food wasn’t. My husbands steak medallions were all cooked to a different level of doneness, some were raw, some were perfect and some were burnt and dried out, all on one plate. The prices have gone up since we were last there, but the food quality has dropped. We won’t rush back.

The food was very good. We brought my inlaws for their 63rd anniversary and they can’t walk very far and they seated us all the way in the back. Our waitress was working the party room and other tables in our section. The service was awful and extremely slow. My inlaws were extremely agitated by the end.

The service started out good, but progressive plummeted.
Server promptly took drink orders, and got kids order in and out quickly. And kids were given water cups w straws and chocolate milk with straws but when I asked for a straw for my seltzer drink, I was given 2 tiny itty bitty cocktail straws that were 1/2 the size of my glass, I was told “this is what I can give you, since we are cutting down on the amount of straws” are u kidding me? You have 4 straws on the table for my 2 kids already!! Then there was the blueberry non-A drink that was so awful compared to other Crave locations that I couldn’t drink it. But I had to flag server down after 10 min of sitting on my table,Our server got less and less findable as eve went on, never filled our wine glasses again, never cleared ANY plates off table, I asked him for dessert menus, he never came back for dessert order. and oh yeh- the advertised Loyalty club tent on the table has a typo in the web access address!! Are you kidding me??!!
And we we did have s booth as requested for my birthday but were stuck in a dark corner, with no ambience like a simple candle in the table, nor a dedicated table light. Not real impressed.

We had an exceptionally wonderful server. She was attentive but not hovering. She knew the menu and made great suggestions. She was very positive and smiled at every interaction.

I had a veggie bowl. It was very good, but a little on the oily side. The stir fry veggies were good, but the rice wasn't the kind I usually eat.

Crave is a nice place to try, but won't be on our "regular" list. The food was good but over- priced. Nothing really special to justify the cost. Beer list was okay, but they were out of the IPA on the menu. Mixed drinks were not good. Had to be sent back. Very nice server.
