About Cravings Restaurant
Cravings Restaurant + Lounge is located in Vancouver, British Columbia. The inside is warm and inviting, with tables spread out around the dining area. Cravings Restaurant + Lounge aims to create a relaxed and spacious atmosphere, which makes it feel more intimate.
The menu at Cravings Restaurant + Lounge is a healthy mix of North American cuisine along with more exotic flavors and dishes sprinkled throughout. For instance, the turkey apple grilled cheese is classic American, while the five-spice beef sandwich is full of Asian influences with its julienned carrot, cucumber, cilantro, green onion, wasabi yogurt and miso-soy glaze. Don't be fooled by the simplicity of the house lasagna, one of the most requested items on the menu.

Cravings Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Overall, a very nice restaurant with very friendly service, as has been the case for years and a very welcome change from the overload of Asian restaurants in Marpole. The Valentine's menu was a bit limited and the portions have decreased in size, it seems, which is unfortunate, but the ingredients are always fresh.
We could not get the table we wanted. They had said that it was reserved for a party of 4, but then, a couple who knew the staff were seated there even though I had made that request on line early and reminded a person who called from there to confirm my reservation. Lots of talking and interaction in that area was distracting and noisy, in the end. Will probably not return for a special occasion like this, but it is a very good place to eat.
Frequented this restaurant for a number of years. Knew it when Angelo owned it. It is still excellent although I do miss his happy face! Food was excellent and our friends had not been there before and really enjoyed their meal. Excellent food and a very good value. Well priced and I am sure the same dishes somewhere else would be more expensive. Good location, easy to park and will go back again soon.
Found this place when I needed to make a reservation for dinner, relatively near the airport. You have a choice of the Dinning room or the Lounge; my experience was with the Dinning room. We had quick and friendly service. The Menu had lots of options and every dish was delicious. The food was filling enough that we couldn't finish our plates.
My family went to the Craving's restaurant a day after New Years for lunch(brunch). We arrived at around 12 and the restaurant wasn't too busy but it seems that there were only two waiters. They were rushing through things such as forgetting to write down the open table booking ID and took the wrong order(I ordered a meat lasagna but got a meat lover omelet instead). The restaurant is a little old so the isolation wasn't particularly good. We could feel the chill sitting next to the wall.
The food was satisfactory. Lots of jam and spread options but the toasted bread came cold.
I had a great meal there. The salad and the pasta were really amazing. The crème brûlée was very tasty but maybe the top was a bit too heard and served in the mug which is kind of unusual for your caliber of restaurant.
The server was nice but started to take the plates etc. away while there was someone who was still eating and I had to tell her to leave mine until my friend was finished. I wouldn't expect that to happen and your caliber of restaurant. My reading would've been higher if this hadn't have happened.
While the food was good, I told the server we had a flight to catch.
Waited for coffee, waited to order, didn't have the wine my guest selected.
I look for the whole package in the restaurant. Unfortunately my server didn't deliver, so I would be very reluctant to recommend your restaurant.
Presentation and flavours were excellent. Pre-fixe menu was tasty. The booth with 2 chairs was a little cramped and very close to the next party. We could hear every word. Service was attentive ( my knife was replaced without asking ) the food came out hot. The plates were warm.
We enjoyed the beetroot and goat cheese salad, apple quinoa salad, maple-glazed salmon with bacon sauce, short ribs, and a shared caramel-espresso torte. Servings were generous, attractively presented and nicely served. Cravings is a neighbourhood gem, and well worth a trip to Marpole.
We were looking for some place nice for dinner that would also accomodate the needs of my celiac daughter... we were pleasantly surprised by the excellent choices and flavourful meal... with no worries regarding my daughter's allergies... Wonderful evening!
Cravings is located in an out-of-the-way area but is worth seeking out. The beetroot salad and the kale & squash salad were both very good, though the latter could have used more than a few small cubes of squash. We also enjoyed the burgoo, the Sicilian gnocchi and a shared vegan brownie. A problem with the wine was quickly rectified, and the atmosphere and service were just fine.
Dropped by on a Friday evening for a casual dinner out. Food was tasty but not inspiring. Good sized portions and prices are definitely inexpensive. Cliental is mostly a retired crowd who I would guess live the neighbourhood. Service was really quite good - attentive, friendly, nice people and on top of things. The best ovrall description I could give Cravings is that it is like going home to Mom's for dinner.
Have been going to Cravings for years. Always good and reasonably priced. Went there for Brunch on Sunday and lunch on Monday. Friendly staff and nice ambiance. Food was well presented. Our only complaint was that the eggs benny could have been warmer.
Great restaurant to meet friends. Staff doesn't hurry you out the door. Will most certainly keep going to Cravings.
Had brunch here on a Sunday when their heater wasn't working, space was quite cold. We overheard the servers telling other tables why it was so cold but it was never mentioned to us. Coffee was decent and hot, breakfast potatoes were crispy and perfect but the Veggie Benny was bland, flavourless and cold. Prices and service are really good so may give them another go.
Cravings is tucked away on a side street but is easily accessible and convenient to the airport. While the decor is definitely dated, the food was OK. Our server was new, charming and honest. The menu prices were reasonable and the liquor selection was also OK.
Brunch here a few years back was nice for the cheery, warm atmosphere but the food was not great. Now the dark dining room feels like a night spot only. No flowers or color at brunch left only the food to shine despite the brilliant sun locked outside. Service was also cool but faultless. Food turned up in decent portions and tasted fresh. The menu is tailored to 'healthy' Vancouver standards.
