Although we had reservations, we did have to wait a while before we were seated and there was really no comfortable place to stand or sit while we were waiting. While we were waiting, the bartender did come to us and take a drink order, which was an unexpected surprise. Service was really good. Food was amazing, especially the sushi!

Food was delicious! We sat in the room by the parking lot so atmosphere not quite as nice but they had it decorated nicely for Valentines Day. However the room was much quieter. Our waitress was very nice, helpful, and attentive. We will return!

Valentines evening and we arrived a bit early and were seated immediately. The restaurant is beautiful and open with proper spacing between tables. Our waiter was at our table as soon as we settled in and took our drink orders which arrived promptly. We choose the valentine dinner for two special. Dinner arrived in a timely manner and was elegantly placed on the plates. The scallops for appetizers were good and for dinner one plate was shrimp and tuna the other was steak and tiny potatoes. The shrimp were outstanding the tuna was quite tough however and the steak while delicious tasted more like a roast. Dessert was molten lava and cheesecake and both were outstanding. Overall we had a very enjoyable dinner.

The food was good and the server was fantastic. The food did take a while to get though. The people next to use ordered about 15 minutes after us and revived there good well before us for a very similar order

We LOVE CRAVE, however we were very dissatisfied this visit on Valentines Day. Our server was very friendly and pleasant but the restaurant was extremely busy and chaotic. All 4 of our entrees were bought to our table cold, my shrimp and scallop sautee was non flavorful and my scallops were forgotten and brought separate. I had to ask for a second glass of wine, because our server was busy running. For a $200+ bill for our table of 4 was very hard to swallow with our meal being less than satisfactory.

I ordered a Filet Mignon. It was definitely not a filet. It was a thin steak cut in half and folded over to have the appearance of a thick cut filet. It was filled with fat and gristle. I have never had a filet with gristle in it. Not worth $40

It was Valentine’s Day so they had mostly 2 top seating, because of this there were a few very odd tables around. We were seated at a long table for 2 people that put us awkwardly far apart. Food and service was all great as usual!

My husband and I went to Crave for their special Valentine's Day dinner. It was ok, but not outstanding. The crostini was good, but too small. The lobster bisque was very good and my husband liked the scallops very much. This was probably the best course. We both had the seared tuna steak and shrimp skewers. That was a big disappointment. Their dessert Duo was good - especially the cheesecake.
Wine selections were good.
We had to decline the first table they tried to seat us at because it was a narrow table where we would have been too far away from each other to carry on a conversation. So they seated us at a table next to a serving station and in front of a drafty door. But at least we could hear each other talk. The server was excellent, however. That was the highlight. I would recommend this place if ordering off the regular menu, not the "special".

Scallops and shrimp pasta dish was tasteless, the pasta was not made to my request. The scallops and shrimp were delicious, but I needed sauce. My husband’s dish had much more flavor and actual sauce. He had the chicken and mushroom pasta dish. If we do ever try the place again I will get something different. Rob gave us great service.

Stick with sushi rolls and the scallops for a starter. The fettuccine was nothing to write home about... the Chilean Sea Bass was delicious.

Everything was good. The bartender was super cocky when I asked to have my margarita blended. He made me feel like an idiot. Other than that great! And the drink he made was 14 dollars! More than my entree. Maybe prices on specialty drink menu?

My husband and I are vegetarians and we went to CRAVE for a much-needed date night on February 7th, 2020. We ordered their Impossible Burger to share, and it was delicious! They split the burger for us and gave us LOTS of fries! We also ordered their Vegan Sushi Sampler Platter as an appetizer. For us the sushi platter was decent, but we would not order it again. We absolutely recommend the avocado rolls that were on that platter! The sesame sauce was delicious on those rolls! The other rolls were a bit bland.

Service was wonderful, and our waitress (Norma) was lovely! We absolutely will come back, and we highly appreciate the wide variety of vegan and vegetarian foods.

Celebrating 2 birthdays. Excellent service. Our server was so attentive and so pleasant. Good selection on the menu. We were seated in a booth in a nice location. We had reservations. Twice we have had reservations at crave at west end and we’re placed at a high top right near the door in bar area. : ( We prefer M G crave; do not go to west end anymore.

Mentioned twice that it was my husband’s birthday when booking a table and then mentioned it at the restaurant too. Was hoping they’ll get him a candle in the end of our dinner when ordered a dessert but they didn’t care enough. Didn’t feel like a special occasion at all. The only things that were good are bread and mussels. Sushi are extremely overpriced for the portion, and they forgot to bring wasabi and ginger. Tiny portion of rolls for over 30$. Peach tea was tasteless, not a hint of peach there. Venison bolognese is overwhelming, way too much sauce, can’t taste the venison’s normally rich and gamy flavor, nor pasta or cheese. Just the sauce. Blueberry cheesecake is pretty good although we didn’t get to finish it, because they took it away while I was paying the bill. Couldn’t wait to get us out perhaps. Extra charge for employees is a ridiculous idea too. Special occasion that was ruined thanks to this place and it’s employees.

Food is average, but prices are premium.
Still do not like the added employee benefits charge. That should be in the price, not a add on at the end of the bill. That is BS.

When walking into CRAVE we are met by a friendly hostess who is able to seat us immediately. Our waitress took our order and brought our appetizer and sushi rolls out to us in a timely manner. The food was amazing! We were in and out within thirty minutes on a quiet night at the restaurant, but with the ambiance of the restaurant it would have been just as good to hang out if necessary. I will be back again!!

Every time I come to Crave I have a wonderful experience. My last visit which was my birthday everything was wonderful except the waitress, we had to keep asking for things 2/3 times before we would receive them. Overall, everything else was wonderful.

Family went for brunch. Overall really good meal and great service. My only complaint is that I didn’t look at the breakdown of my bill until after I left and I noticed that I was charged for my two kids meals even though on Sunday kids eat free. Everything else was great though.

The Blackened walleye I ordered was a disappointment, it was NOT blackened and had very little spice or taste. The rice it was served on was tasteless as well. I thought it was over priced and disappointing. My wife loved her egg rolls meal as well as the couple we were with didn’t comment on there meals, so I assume they found it OK

Dinner party of six, 5 of us loved it. My sister ordered the Grilled Salmon & Tabbouleh Salad, when she cut into the salmon it was raw in the middle. I called one of the "floor managers" over...she scraped the salmon off the salad and said they would bring out a new one. After the rest of us had almost finished eating, the newly broiled salmon came out...it was a much smaller filet than the original...but at least fully cooked. My sister was comped for the salmon (but not the salad?), and one drink...but left very unhappy. We will probably come back, she won't.

There a great variety of food choices to satisfy our party but the service was a little too slow.
After our server came by to get drink orders (we only got water), she took a while to get back to us to get our food order.
We got calamari for appetizer and we all liked it. The rest of the food took a while to come. Our server did come by 2x to say they are coming but still took too long to actually get there.
Overall, we like that there’s a big menu. Food is good. Service was just slow.
