Valentines dinner was perfect. Excellent service, good food and the atmosphere was date worthy. We were able to converse, it was a low volume establishment.

Excellent food, interesting Farm-to-Table menu that changes often. A little pricey for what you get, but all around great experience.

Great food, tried rutabagas for the first time and I now have a new and vegetable I like. Lamb was cooked to perfection.
Martinis not served in a martini glass, not a deal breaker, but expected at this type of eatery.
Would recommend for a foodie experience.

Wonderfully delicious dinner and great first experience. The ambience was perfect. Some patrons complained that it was too noisy because a large group had dinner and were enjoying themselves. We simply found as an energetic friend get together.. We will definitely be back.
Love the farm to table selections. Staff was warm an genuinely sincere.

We had an amazing brunch here. Maddy, our server, was great. The food was terrific. Atmosphere was relaxed. We had a hard time narrowing down what to eat since the menu looked so good. Definitely enjoyed our experience and would recommend.

The streak continues! We have a meal at CraVing 10-12x/year, and have yet to have an "off" experience. We were greeted by Katlin, who always goes out of her way to make customers feel welcome, she is one of the best hostesses I have had the pleasure to deal with. Nick was serving up authentic "Tom & Jerrie's" and they were a home run, which is not at all unusual. Nicole took care of our orders, her friendly personality and prompt service make the dining experience at CraVing a truly enjoyable experience. Topping the whole night off, a fantastic meal that takes one on a culinary journey to remember. CraVing is a true gem of Western NY!

Sorry but, we did not have a good experience. 2 of the 4 of us ordered the beet salad with Chicken. The chicken seemed bad. Neither of us ate the salad and I ended up with a terrible stomach for the next 24 hours.

Food was really really very delicious, just the noise level was too much, it's difficult to have a conversation
