    We enjoyed our dinner at Crafthouse. Service was a little slow but the orders were taken correctly and the food tasty. We’d come back but highly recommend reservations. The prices for drinks were a tad high which we ultimately we skipped ordering.

    We found the restaurant to be so loud we could hardly hear each other speak. They were out of non-alcoholic beer and the daily soup. Food was okay but not worth the higher price. Things did not seem to be working right for the server, who was polite but quite stressed from all the issues. Sorry, but we won't be eating there again.

    Food and service was a 4 out of 5. The experience was dampened by the lack of wine stock. Several selections, simply not available. Puzzling for a well established restaurant to not have the full stock of wines offered on menu. Mind you, wine list is small. Seems like someone is not paying attention to inventory. Take your own bottle of wine, if you want to enjoy wine with your dinner. Odd to say, but true.

    We requested outside seating with room for a stroller. We were jammed in the outside corner with no room to move- made tighter by the fact that the garage door to the outside was closed while we were sitting out there. Rest of the restaurant empty. We were so jammed our plates couldn’t even be cleared. So uncomfortable we didn’t even bother ordering entrees. Food we did order was nothing to write home about.

    Great place to have a date night with good food and good drinks. Food was outstanding, however, on my short rib with mole sauce, the creamy mash potatoes were slightly cooler than the rest of the plate which through me off. The drinks were good, but I thought they were overpriced. I was looking forward to the dead man’s Old Fashioned, but their smoker tool was broken. We will definitely return.

    Love to come back to this place. it seem like they took everything that is highly rated at the other group restaurants and put it on their menu. Every item is wonderful. Chef does such a wonderful job to make sure that every dish comes out right and taste amazing . we celebrated a birthday party and they made sure that items we want to modify to our request and liking. Highly recommend this place for any occasion. Definitely will be back.

    Food and drinks were decent, but priced higher than I personally thought they’re worth - weak, mediocre drink, overcooked burger, amazing ahi appetizer. Very noisy, but it’s located in a food court. Service was average. Great decor. Trendy.

    Excellent service, modern and clean restaurant. I ordered the coconut margarita which is AMAZING! The fish and chips, were a bit "off" they weren't crispy on the outside, they were soft and oily, that's not the norm because I've ordered it before but at some of it and the fries were perfect. My husbands burge was juicy and perfect, he ate every bite. Truffle fries were perfectly hot & perfect. We love this place.

    We had some well behaved teenagers with us, but the waitress was rude to them and probably upset they weren’t ordering booze. Spent $350 with included 20% tip and 5% workers bonus they tacked on. Drinks were bland. Service was unfriendly and slow. Overpriced. Won’t be back. Any of the other Sky Deck bars are much better options!

    So as a long time supporter of Craft House, I was delighted (but not surprised) to see that their quality has not faltered. Their staple chard octopus was as perfect last night as it was 2 years ago @ the grand opening. My new favorite dish is the Oaxaca mole short rib. It is PHENOMENAL Also, tried their new fig Piggy Back drink. Uuuuf, super nice drink also, part of my new favorites. Go check them out. Nothing on the menu will disappoint

    It was closed. I understand it was a holiday (July 4th), but don’t offer a reservation opportunity on Open Door if you are closed. Our family of 5 drove 15-minutes to experience Craft House only to find it closed.

    Had an awesome date night at Craft House. If you’re looking to splurge, try the tomahawk steak for 2. It comes with a choice of salad and a dessert. The steak was cooked to perfection with the fat rendered to a nice crust - if that makes sense. It was 36oz of deliciousness with herb butter melted over a bed of roasted veggies. We also really enjoyed the service at Craft House. Our server, Susan, was so friendly and prompt. We didn’t get the names for the busser and food runner but they were also on top of everything. Overall, would absolutely recommend to friends and family.

    Loved the ambiance of this smaller dining room and the entire Sky Deck! There were 5 of us and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their lunch entree. The service was great and it was quiet enough we could have a good conversation and not have to strain to hear one another. Great place for lunch, happy hour or dinner!

    Fun atmosphere, but loud…so much so that it is hard to hear your companions. Food was good, but it came out so quickly it seemed like it was meant for another table. Bill was pricey. Will likely try again.
