Contemporary French
The Hoquet's hail from Burgundy, France, where they owned The Moustier restaurant for 16 years. Over the years, they started to vacation in various places across America, and they fell in love with the east coast of Florida. The two decided it was time for a new endeavor, and when they discovered that Krave Restaurant was looking for new owners, the couple jumped at the opportunity for a new challenge.
Chef David was formally trained for three years in a French culinary school. He has won awards as a pastry chef and has worked with some of the most notable chefs and in awarded restaurants in France before starting his own restaurant. He has brought some of his signature dishes to the new menu at Krave Restaurant. The infusion of French and American cuisine means that guests will have more to choose from than ever.
While Chef David prepares your food in the kitchen, his wife, Delphine, and Krissy take care of everything else so that you can thoroughly enjoy your evening wit

Excellent, as usual. This time I had the breast of duck. So tender. So good. Two people had the Cote du boeuf. The other person had the filet ru porc in a pink sauce. I don’t know what the sauce was but he ate the entire dinner and loved it. Very good wine list. By the bottle or glass.

Large portions, fresh salads, mussels were delicious. Salmon was light and moist. Duck was tender not greasy. Meals are a mix of French and modern American multicultural cuisine. Crème Brûlée was perfect!
Great wine list, not your everyday wine, and affordable.

Outstanding from the amuse-bouche to the cappuccino. Service was personal and attentive, but very professional. Quality of the food was only exceeded by the preparation and plating. The Escargots were in a garlic and parsley butter that was perfect. The mussels sans shells were prepared in a similar fashion with panko breadcrumbs and were superb. The skin on bronzino and accompanying vegetables was outstanding. The beef tenderloin filet was everything a filet should be and the accompanying potatoes gratin were a real treat. Wine was acceptable, although not an outstanding list. Overall, a fine dining experience. We will be back soon!

Our first trip to this Top 100 award winner. Small but quaint and intimate (30-40 seats), family owned and operated in a non descript location in a shopping center.

Food was excellent, Seared Fois Gras delicious, Tuna Tartare very well done, Roasted Duck Breast as well. Branzino with a French twist was also very good.

Atmosphere and minimal service support, while acceptable and pleasant, was only noticeable opportunity for improvement or enhancement.

We will go back as menu offerings are regularly updated with daily specials worth trying it seems.

Delphine and Chef David had a restaurant in Burgundy, France. They came here to open Krave a few years ago. If you are “craving” authentic tasting French fare, then head to Krave and you will not be disappointed! I love the classic escargot and lamb shank. The special appetizer of the day was duck rillette. Fantastic. Good wine list also and a nice selection of wines by the glass. Make a reservation as the restaurant only has 12 tables.

We were able to get in for my birthday. This place gets well earned rave reviews, so booking is not always easy. Thank you Open Table.
The ambience is the way a classy restaurant used to. It is QUIET. We will definitely be back to enjoy a meal and wine in this lovely quiet restaurant. Delphine was very attentive and we had a pleasant conversation. (Yes, we could hear each other.)

This restaurant has potential.
Service and attention was excellent. The food was hit and miss. Some entrees were very good.
My wife had the FILET DE BOEUF AUX MORILLES which was excellent though not prepared they way she asked (med) it was rare - just the way I like it.
Her sister had the SAUMON A LA CARDAMONE which she loved and would highly recommend.
Bob had the MIGNON DE PORC and the sauce was wonderful but the pork was a little overcooked and dry. I had the SOURIS D AGNEAU BASSE TEMPERATURE (lamb shank). The sauce was tasty and might have been good but there was no meat on the shank. Zero - very disappointing.
For desert - the CREME BRULEE was good but not outstanding...was hoping for more.
We have decided to try KRAVE one more time and not on New Year's eve.

This is a lovely small, intimate restaurant. Food is excellent, cooked by the chef/owner. The service is delightfully provided by the other owner...his wife. This was our fourth time at the restaurant and completely satisfied. Decent wine list too.

Everything about this place is wonderful. The service is great and the food was excellent. I took my girlfriend there for her birthday and it has a very nice atmosphere. The restaurant is very small and the tables are kind of close together, but it’s not so bad that you feel like you have no space. I would highly recommend this place for pretty much any occasion.

Escargot was bland
Bronzing was excellent
Salad was blah
Duck was extremely disappointing, even though I asked for extra sauce.
Special coconut mousse dessert was flavorless

Restaurant was less than half full at 8pm.

I recommend with reservations...this place is smaller than my apartment and very quiet! So if you want privacy it's odd because everyone can hear what you are saying. Great food, good service.

The food was somewhat disappointing. I was so looking forward to the duck...and wanted crispy duck. Instead it looked like a piece of steak. Taste was ok...not terrivic.
It was a bit pricey for what we got.

As have been mentioned before, the restaurant is a littlest hard to find and in a strip mall between a sub place and a Laundromat. Once you walk in, it is very well appointed and very nice. I believe it is only 8 tables.
The service was wonderful and the food was excellent. Every item was top notch and the Creme Brûlée for dessert was one of the best. Recommended it to several friends.

I was so happy to see a vegan dish on the menu. Fennel crusted tofu was delicious! I love all the little extras too. The tiny frozen white wine and lime was perfect.
