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.
The menu seems a bit smaller than I remember and it would have been nicer if the after 4 menu was available at lunch time. Otherwise it was great.
The staff here was super friendly: from the moment that I stepped in to the restaurant to the moment that I left, it was nothing but pleasant encounters. Aside from a little long wait for our food, everything was wonderful!
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.
First visit in February 2016, party of 2. Delicious food, attentive service. Believe all those great reviews on Open Table! There aren't very many restaurants in Marpole, let alone good ones. So lucky to have Cravings in the neighbourhood!
Very reasonable fixed price menu
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.
warm, friendly neighborhood restaurant with delicious food. There is an excellent chef in this kitchen. We enjoyed the back ribs and lamb entrees and will be back to try more menu items!
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.
We like the variety of the menu and they can get a group in and out for a business lunch within one hour. Prices are reasonable and you can always count on the food being fresh and tasty.
