    Food was excellent. When there was significant lag time in service, the general manager Heather personally apologized & extended the bottomless brunch hour. They were clearly short staffed, but the attitude of the wait staff remained pleasant Would easily visit again.

    Service was poor, food was poor and atmosphere was too bunched up and loud. Tuna was way over seasoned and the lobster curry had a full onion with skin on floating in it. We asked for horseradish w our Oysters politely ......four times Have been there many times in the past and unfortunately wont be coming back. $350 for dinner for two No thanks

    This was my second visit to Crave in one week. I decided on an impromptu happy hour & oyster craving on Tuesday so I googled oysters & I landed this wonderfully location where the food is sustainably sourced 💕🦪 We ordered each appetizer on the happy hour menu & about 3 dozen oysters they were so fresh! & the watermelon sangria was so refreshing! We then decided to make it our place for our next date night so we try some of the entrees that were absolutely delicious & a bottle of rosé. Our service was impeccable & the manager was gracious. 100% will continue to eat here.

    Nice place. Good service. Oysters were served warm. Did not like that. Octopus was amazing, pasta with ink good too. Fries where bad. Saggy and oily. Definitely can do better on that. Overall average experience.

    Service was great. We had the Blue Point oysters. They were fine, but the horseradish we were given was not the kind I like. I like to be able to feel it in my sinuses. This horseradish had zero kick. The tuna was great with the corn and sauce. Good combination.

    We sat outside on the tented street section which had nice ambience, and while it was right on the street was not loud at all. The waitress was great and gave several good recommendations. The salmon sushi roll was so good I got a second at the end of the meal. I chose the squid ink pasta which had a nice little kick to it and overall pretty flavorful although I find this not the most flavorful dish. My sons both got fish entrees and enjoyed them. Reasonable wine selection. Overall a very enjoyable dinner experience.

    I have been here so many times. I love the food. The oysters are so fresh. The host is super nice and friendly. This has to be one of my favorite restaurants. However, last night my server was very rude and passive aggressive towards me and my guest. Before we ordered she stated that the kitchen closed at 9. It was 8:30 so I made sure we knew exactly what we wanted. While I was ordering my food she kept trying to walk away before I finished. I had to call her back to order my drinks. I ordered 30 oysters and French fries. I specifically asked for 1 dozen black duck , 1 dozen blondie, and half a dozen blue point. When I finished speaking she looked at me with a serious face and said “so you only want 6 of each right?” I looked at her again and said “no 1 dozen is 12 I want 12”. She then proceeded to walk away before my guest could order her food and before we even ordered our drinks. Then before we could finish our meals they were taken away from us. Literally rushed us out. I looked at my phone for one second after I finished my oysters and my fries were gone before I even finished them. I wasn’t even asked if I was done. Again I have only had great experiences at this restaurant so I feel bad leaving this review. I just don’t want anyone to get the same waiter and or service I did yesterday.
