Took 30 minutes to get waited on, but the restaurant gave us 4 free appetizers and 2 free desserts, which was very gracious and unexpected. Very good service other than that. Food is delicious, ambiance is great, overall atmosphere is a 10/10

My friend and I both had undercooked salmon, we sent it back and by the time we got ours, our husbands were finished eating. The waitress said, “we did not charge you for the second salmon orders”. My goodness, I would hope we wouldn’t be charged! Nothing discounted on our bill. This will not keep us from returning, I just thought it was weird.

I really do love Crave! Service is top notch, although a bit hectic at times. I’m obsessed with their fire cracker shrimp appetizer- probably my favorite thing on the menu. Steaks are great, the only issue is anytime I get any type of steak dish on the menu, it’s always served cold. Everything else is perfect temperature on the plate- but they never seem to get temperatures down... it’s too bad because you’ll spend 40 bucks for it too. Drink menu is also fabulous!

Really like this spot. Experienced both dinner and brunch this trip, service was outstanding on both occasions. The ambiance is great! The patio has a retractable glass roof and walls that slide back. Will be so great when weather permits! Food was good but not great, could very well be what we ordered.

Went there for Valentines day. Its such a unique space in the open room, and it was a great atmosphere. Fairly open layout which was suprising at first, but nothing too bad. The food was great, we got Steak and Sushi. Drinks were very tasty, presentation was great! Overall, a great experience and would recommend.

This was our first time back to Crave since the Covid pandemic. The valentines day dinner
was superb. There was an improvement in the service since the previous visit. Our waiter,Mitch, was very professional in all respects. We look forward to dining at Crave in the future. This is a restaurant that Rochester needs.

I was disappointed that a lot of menu items listed on the Website menu were not on the menu. Possibly due to the Valentine's special menu? The food I ended up with was good, but not what I was looking forward to.
Our waitress was spectacular but the host and servers spent a lot of time in close groups by the computer that certainly made social distancing look like something they didn't really care about. I watched several servers and patrons trying to maneuver around the host as he stood in the path of traffic. I don't think I'll be back anytime soon.

We are long-time patrons of Crave in other cities, so were elated that it was coming to Rochester. We were not disappointed with the service--even though we had to remind them that we had indicated it was an anniversary on our reservation--but less happy with the food and the chairs (we asked to move which was genially accomplished). We know that Crave usually does much better, so are looking forward to next time when we will likely experience improvement.
We were happy to have the opportunity to talk with Kyle, the manager, who listened patiently to our comments. We will go back.
