    The steak was good and I loved the truffle fries. However my dining companions Burger was inedible and their regular fries were cold, as if their meal was made and then set aside until mine was ready. It also took over 30 minutes for the food to be ready. The restaurant was busy, but more people came in than went out. The table beside us sat unbussed for the majority of our meal when there were people crammed by the bar, hosts spot and even outside waiting on tables. Our waittress was great and tried to make up for the experience but I doubt I will ever go to this restaurant again.

    Great service- Abigail. Good appetizers: excellent mussels, good calamari and roasted brussels sprouts. Mixed bag on entrees: good salmon and short ribs. Had to sub out the thai mahi- due to soap tasting broth. Tasty and large kids meals.

    I had the absolute best experience here. I brought my 83 year old neighbor here for her birthday, she chose Crave as she’s a regular- I’d never been. We got seated quickly and found a sweet birthday card at the table that the staff had all signed. They also treated us to a complimentary champagne toast halfway through our meal and complimentary dessert afterwards. The food was incredible, service was outstanding. She kept saying how special you guys made her birthday, she saved the card as well. I can’t say enough good things about Crave and I’m looking forward to my next visit.

    We really enjoyed the food at Crave. Our appetizers were the raw tuna and the macaroni and cheese. Both were excellent and we received large portions. I had the cod special for dinner which was cod “poached” in a verde sauce. It was delicious!!! My brother had the scallops, which were fantastic. The waiter was both well versed in both the menu options and the extensive wine menu available at Crave. As we enjoy reds, he helped us pick a nice light Pinot that went well with our dinners (fish) and our dessert, which was a large and delicious skillet cookie with ice cream. We also enjoyed the expresso martini. In addition to the food, the service in the restaurant was excellent. Our server helped us to make great menu selections. He was also able to discuss and make excellent wine recommendations. Crave has a nice atmosphere and a “steakhouse type” of bar—I plan to go back and enjoy food and cocktails at the bar in the near future!!!

    First time eating at Crave's as it was recommended to us. The menu offers a number of options to consider but not too many - which in turn allows the kitchen to focus on the food. and "their" meals! The food was delicious, and we will definitely come back with our family.

    We came for dinner at 5 and were seated straight away. Our waiter, Matthew, was pleasant, efficient and communicative. The Fried Mac balls were outstanding. The soups we had, Broccoli and Cheese (wife) and She-Crab (me) were tasty, flavorful, and served at an excellent temperature. We both had the fish of the day (Cod) with spaghetti squash, in a tomato, onion, and caper sauce, it was delightful and full of flavor. For dessert we had peanut butter and chocolate cup served frozen. We came because of restaurant week and had one of the 4 course dinners for a set price. The food definitely did not disappoint, the service was excellent, and we were dining at a very quiet time for the restaurant (5-6 p.m.).

    Known for their Mac and cheese and add ons, they have a nice varied menu. Service is very high with multiple people taking care of your table. Great marketing with a promotion to get us back. Our booth was nice, but I think the open area may be a bit louder. But I’ll come back anyway!

    Everything was delicious. Matt our server was very attentive to our needs. The only problem was that we got our desserts to go because we were so full and we're going to the movies after our dinner. We received the wrong desserts and were both not at all happy about that. We were already home when we opened the bag because it was stapled shut. That was a major disappointment because I was really looking forward to the key lime cup. I myself work in food and beverage and I know mistakes happen. It was just disappointing since our meal was quite expensive.

    Not a good night at crave. We arrived on time for our 7 o’clock appointment and received our entrée at 7:55. One of us had steak, which was tough. One of us had a salad. Certainly not a long preparation time. We ordered a mediocre wine at $13 a glass. Look like about a 3 ounce pour.

    We have eaten here several times in the past, buy not sure that we will return. The server was polite but obviously untrained and had to keep running back to ask questions. The food was unsatisfactory, especially at the prices here. My husband's steak was touch and chewy. We paid $36 for 3 scallops and they were so fishy tasting I could only eat 1. My green beans were not warm and were raw. There were only 3 other customers, so that is telling also. Nothing positive about this experience.
