One of there steaks was overcooked and not up to the usual standard
but Tracey addressed the concern.

Everything else was excellent.

(At $10/glass, I felt the wine was overpriced....)

Our grandson wanted a nut-free steak but was told that the cooks were too busy to remove the usual nut topping?? Overall, the cooks seemed to lack time and courtesy toward customers.

This was my first visit to Cravings. It got very busy very quickly over the lunch hour so I was very thankful I made a reservation. Seems to be a hot spot for business lunches. The ordering process was a bit confusing at first since it was not explained to us but we figured it out quickly. The choices are overwhelming, lots to great options from pizzas to steaks. Our meals were well presented and delicious. Great spot for a casual date night or lunch.

It was our first time at Cravings. We were impressed with the concept, location. There was plenty to choose from. Our food was delicious and a great value for what we ordered. Enjoyed live music. Will be back soon.

My wife and I celebrated her birthday with an exquisite lunch. She had the seafood risotto which was rich and creamy, with a side salad. I had the italian wedding soup and the ginger beef with vegetables and rice. Everything tasted great and the portions are generous. We go there regularly and are never disappointed.

It’s been a while since I’ve been at Cravings and first time for breakfast. Breakfast was menu only table service, rather than the “order for yourself” market style dining they offer for lunch and dinner.

Food was good. Lovely setting.

Inattentive staff are my primary reason for a lower rating. Maybe it was an off day.

Somewhat average across the board. Slow service (even when the restaurant was largely empty), staff carrying on with long conversations with each other - while customers were waiting for service, and higher priced with regard to the somewhat “self serve” approach.

Went on Monday pasta night and got $5 off making what would usually seem a bit pricey very reasonable. The salad sampler was a great deal and really tasty. Overall selection was great and it's a cool concept.

Restaurant is connected to a couple of well-known catering companies and the food is more catering quality than restaurant. The hollandaise for the eggs benedict tasted like packaged, and the latkes were oily. The overall was ok, and the prices are reasonable for what you get - and the place is really nice looking... but just not the best food.

Excellent variety of choices for lunch. Open kitchens and ordering system are somewhat unique, assuring all food is fresh and hot, but disruptive to having a steady conversation with fellow diners. Will return.

I only lunch twice so far, and thus had no problem. But tell the cook to put a little more ginger on that ginger beef that I ordered. Or perhaps it's a recipe from the 'bland' part of China. Just kidding.

Food was good. Service was not as good as I expected considering we were in later part of lunch when it was not as busy. But maybe that is why because everyone was wound down. Trying to flag down a waiter was tough at times. Would enjoy menus on the tables so we could just walk up and order instead of wondering around so much and having to go back and forth trying to decide. You have a lot of interesting items which made decisions tougher hence walking around. And your food staff was right on you asking what you wanted when you haven't read anything.

We're a group that meets once a month and with our varied tastes and appetite size, this restaurant never disappoints and is turning into our restaurant of choice. The concept is creative and our meals tailored to our different tastes. You can't beat the prices or the quality of the food either. It's also helpful that, for a group, everyone pays individually.

Expensive and strange... wandering around choosing food with plastic identification cards and sitting in a restaurant that seems like a decorated community hall is unusual. Food is good, not great, and more expensive than sit down restaurants.

Interesting and numerous food choices, well-prepared, great taste and freshness, I had the tacos and they were delicious, the prices are moderate-high, ambience is mid-level restaurant level (wicker chairs)/not high-end with plush seating but a good restaurant for lunch and casual dinner or family birthday.

I've been going to Cravings for years. The food is always tasty and the service is terrific. Especially good for a group because of the swipe card system - there's no discussion over who pays what; the bills are always separate! And... there's plenty of free parking!

I am a member of a group of retired co workers that meet monthly at different venues around our city. We like to experience the different choices that are available to us all. Some restaurants are so tight and so loud that it is not an enjoyable outing.
I knew from previous dining experiences at Cravings that all my ladies would enjoy this setting as it is a unique dining experience, a warm atmosphere and was able to accommodate my request easily.
I even had emails afterwards thanking me for introducing them to this restaurant!
This will be a return venue for us ...
