The chorizo stuffed bacon wrapped dates were amazing!! Sweet, salty and spice...a must have!! Cozy place with good ambiance. Also the giant smore for dessert is just ridiculous huge and the homemade marshmallow and fudge was to die for. I could have skipped entree and just did those 2. There is never room for it all.

We were here for brunch previously and it was great, quiet, good food, good service. Most recently, not so great, annoyingly loud, service was not great, no bread served before brunch as in the past. Food was not great. Waitress was too busy to attend to us.

My sister's and I planned a post christmas luncheon. After some discussion I suggested Crave ing and made the reservation. One of my sisters ordered a cup of soup and the blt sandwich , my other sister and I ordered the Beet salad wit an addition of grilled chicken breast. Sister 1 found the soup to be tasty but said the bacon on the blt was candied and too sweet. The beet salad was tasteless, the beets were raw, the chicken looked and tasted synthetic and inedible. I was so disappointed and embarrassed since it was my suggestion. Despite the flowery discriptions of their menu items we all found the food to be sub par and expensive. Our server however was gracious and apologetic and removed our meals from the bill. We have crossed this place off our list of great places to dine in Buffalo. Live and learn!

Amazing dinner last night, a warm oasis on a cold winters night. Full flavor, beautifully plated dishes one after another filled our table. Friendly, efficient, bartenders & waitstaff along with our dinner company made for a most enjoyable evening. We’ll be back soon to check out your locally sourced, ever changing delicious menu�

The waiter was pleasant but the restaurant was understaffed. The food took a very long time to come out of the kitchen. The manager offered to buy a round of drinks and was apologetic.

Went to Craving on a Tuesday night, it was very quiet. Ordered chorizo stuffed dates, calf liver and carpaccio, as appetizers. All were presented beautifully and tasted wonderful. Ricotta gnocchi, handkerchief pasta and a veal T-Bone were done to perfection. Everybody enjoyed their meals.

Food was mixed. I ordered eggs benedict that were delicious. Eggs perfectly poached. Delicious peameal bacon and tender hashbrowns. Two of our party ordered french toast. ONe plain, one caramel apple. hugely disappointing. the 'brioche' was dry and stale, and the eggs had not soaked into the break so they formed kind of an omelette coating on the outside. Coffee was fresh and the waitress kindly brought us a basket of house-baked foccaccia that was a treat.

Both my husband and I ordered the homemade pasta. He had the gnocchi, and I had the handkerchief pesto pasta. My pesto pasta was delicious with a strong garlic flavor, which I love. My husband felt that his gnocchi was a bit bland. Both of us thoroughly enjoyed our salads, which were quit large and delicious! There was not music playing, which was a bit odd, but we overall enjoyed our experience.
