Hole in the wall but very good food!! If you don’t like small spaces, I would not recommend. Prices were a little high for the portion size, food and wine. Music is a little loud so you may have to repeat or speak up when talking with others. Definitely would return!

This is an amazing gem that I happened upon while reading reviews on OpenTable. The food was amazing, and the people that work there were as well. Make sure you try the oysters as they were fabulous! We also had the omelette with Gruyère and crab as well as the fish tacos. All of it was really really yummy!

We had 3 dozen clams and oysters in the half shell, very fresh and delicious. Ordered three different Barramundi preparations and each were cooked nicely. Two of the appetizers, Fish Tacos and Calamari were mediocre at best and the third Plancha Grilled Octopus was good. We all enjoyed the Garlic Chive Griddled Rice but not the Brussels sprouts as much. Overall we felt that the food was not as enjoyable as previous visits and not sure we will return. I have reservation about recommending this location to a friend.

Love the oyster happy hour. Wish they would bring back the really, really wonderful salmon tostada, replaced by a tuna version but the salmon was divine

Went for my wife’s birthday. The food was delicious. Oysters were tasty and fresh. The manager personally came over with a free dessert for her birthday, sang happy birthday, and filled my wine glass for free. Such a kind and personal touch. Will definitely return!

Love Crave. They have the best oysters and always go above and beyond. Their pastas are all great, particularly the squid ink spaghetti. Their sliders and fish tacos are yummy too. Definitely recommend- for couples and families!

Thursday night dinner with friends. Great food in general with a great service, which is hard to find these days. We particularly enjoyed the Eido da Fonte Albarino with our food. We had 2 bottles of this wine that goes down so easily.

Service was very poor. Waitress didn’t bring items ordered, Diet Coke no refills apparently on the Diet Coke (charged twice). Just a struggle to get any service at all.

Ordered the Sea Bass on the recommendation from the young lady who greeted us and poured our water. While we have dined any number of times at crave, never tried the Sea Bass before, what a wonderful experience and suggestion!!!
Thank you!

It was nothing special. This is on a expensive side. Had fish tacos and it was super dry! The Dinasaur salad was good but they charge me extra $10 for three pieces of shrimp, total rip off! Ordered lobster red curry and it was too sweet! I had better Thai red curry before, and we added rice on side which was $8. The bowl so tiny!!!!!! Omg in regular places that would be a big bowl! This is total rip off!

Service was great, food was delicious.
I would have preferred if the restaurant had built a platform on the street, we dined outside and the street has a curve into the sidewalk so the table was slanted and our drinks kept sliding.
Otherwise everything was great!
