My husband and I went for our anniversary and we’re greeted by the host with a nice “congratulations”. We then were greeted by our server with more well wishes and a champagne toast on the house. We ordered the fried calamari, which came out slightly burnt. We mentioned to our server who kindly said she would provide more. It was then delivered by the manager apologizing and said that they would cover due to the inconvenience. We ordered 2 entrees (steak and scallops) which were both absolutely delightful. Once complete, the server also offered us dessert on the house. We chose the double chocolate cake and it was also amazing. Overall, everything was excellent; both staff and food!!! 5 stars!

Second time going to Crave and a much different experience this time. Last time, service was great and food was delicious! This time service was not good and food was still tasty. Hard to enjoy the food as much when the service is so bad

When I booked our reservation, I said we were celebrating our anniversary and asked for a cozy place to sit. No mention was ever made of us celebrating and we were seated at a 4 top table by a large party! Needless to say, it just got worse. We sat there for the longest time with no water, no attention. Finally, a very nice manager stopped by and explained he was helping out due to our waiter dealing with a large group. Our son-in-law had called in earlier and had arranged for 2 glasses of champagne thankfully, otherwise, we would have never gotten anything else to drink. I ordered a drink that never came (waiter later told us it had been sent to the wrong table!) and my husband’s beer came, but it wasn’t what he ordered. Eventually, we did get drinks and the waiter comp’d them.

We both ordered their Mac n cheese, their specialty, with grilled shrimp. The Mac n cheese was a huge serving (impossible to eat all of it) and the shrimp was good. The food was good, but the service was awful. Sadly, no waiter ever came & offered us a dessert menu. We even had to flag down someone to get a check. Don’t ever go here for a special occasion!

In summary, we will NOT be going back and I wouldn’t recommend spending $100+ for this restaurant.

Impromptu visit so appreciated them fitting us in during restaurant week. Made it into a special dinner for my daughters upcoming 7th birthday. Loud drunk guy a few tables down, but that’s not Crave’s fault. Only 2 scallops added to award winning mac and cheese for $15, but very tasty.

The service was a little slow. The drink order took a long time. Our main course order wasn’t taken until we had finished our appetizers. Our water glasses were not refilled. Also the catch of the day wasn’t available so the menu felt a bit limited.

Music was way too loud outside as we were placed under speaker. They never got it turned down after asked 5 times. Not appreciated.

Also- servers clearly needed a bit more training though very nice.

First and foremost, the mac and cheese is really all that plus more, truly delicious. Following it as an appetizer, I ordered the hanger steak as I’m always curious how some of these restaurants make it so tender and delicious. The service was fair yet nothing special, drink was often empty as we rarely saw her. The steak in appearance was an 8/10. Taste was good though I had to request a steak knife as it was so tough/chewy. The steak lived up to its reputation as a tough piece of meat. The menu is nice with much to choose from, I’d recommend something else with greater potential.

The waitress was pleasant and corrected a system glitch. Cocktails came out fast but the cornbread basket took longer than average. Most everything went well though and the food and drinks were very delicious. We would definitely go again.

The kitchen staff should not allow plated food to sit too long under the heat lights. (The food becomes drier.) Also, putting cooked food on unheated plates is not good. (The food becomes colder.) Two negatives do not make for a positive dining experience!

We got a last minute reservation. We were pleasantly surprised with the food. My short rib entree was tender and delicious. My son loved his famous Mac and cheese topped with fried oysters and truffled mushrooms. And the cocktails were refreshing. Our waitress was excellent, attentive but not smothering. Overall, a very nice meal.

Outdoor tented area had a wedding party plus regular diners, making for an EXTREMELY noisy environment. One couple ordered soup and specified that it needed to be very hot. It wasn’t. We ordered a starter appetizer that was never delivered. I ordered a gluten free bun, normally a $3.00 up charge. Without consultation, I was brought my burger on 2 pieces of GF bread, an inferior and less costly substitute, but not reflected in a reduced up charge.
