    The restaurant has a nice feel and the staff, although very scripted, are good, but the food is just ok. If I'm going to pay $230 for 4 meals and 6 drinks - no appetizers or desserts, the food needs to be good and it just isn't. I won't rush back.

    Loved the atmosphere, however my salad, which had a horseradish-type dressing was wayyyyyyy more spicy than anything I’ve ever tasted (and not noted to be spicy in the least). Guessing there was an error in the recipe that evening. Hardly ate a bite and commented to our server as to the level of however not comped.

    The menu for the Rochester restaurant was excellent. The avocado chicken egg roll and the chicken stir fry were some of the best we have ever experienced. The waiter Miguel was great. Great personality and was very attentive. The atmosphere sitting at the table by the expansive window was very enjoyable. Gerry

    We dined at CRAVE during their restaurant week offer of a three course meal. Plus it was 50% off bottles of wine on Mondays. We added the crab cakes as an additional appetizer and they were the star of the night. My salad and my wife's egg roll were fine. My lobster mac & cheese my wife's beef medallions were both very good. The desserts were fine -- tiramisu and French silk. The restaurant is fusion mix of sushi dishes and more regular fare. Nothing on the sushi offerings caught our eye. The space is very airy and open with tall glass walls, metal chairs and tables, and tile floor, which made for a noisy atmosphere as diners gathered. We ate early so it was only 25% full but even then it was on the noisy side. All in all a good meal but not a destination restaurant.

    Short staffed. Waited 5 min. To get sat without anyone at the host stand. Went to the bar instead and sat there for 10 minutes before being awknologded. Slow bartending service! One bartender behind the counter. 4 people at bar. Large party in dining area. Managers are not helping with this. They very well could have!! Instead, having a conversation clueless to the poor service happening around them. I was watching them, not watching me :(

    We enjoyed ourselves immensely. Our server was an absolute standout. I am not exaggerating. I am disappointed in myself for not taking note of her name (enough to remember and also losing our receipt). She was incredibly helpful, made suggestions, took my beef/cow (only) dairy allergy very seriously.... SUCH a professional.

    Food was great, only reason for not great review is because a member of our party is gluten free due to health issues. She ordered a gluten free dish and did not receive one to the table and ended up being rather sick later in the evening because of it. Waitress was nice but slightly inattentive. Working in the service industry myself I can understand that it was a slightly busy night, but she did not pay much attention to our small table.

    We dine at Crave often. The menu has lots of choices, the service is usually excellent and the noise level in the main area is tolerable compared to many other local restaurants. Over the past while however, there has been a noticeable decline in the quality of the food. My partner usually gets the chopped chicken salad but will not be choosing it again. It has been steadily becoming more disappointing. This last time it was so drenched in dressing that the greens looked horrible. Additionally there was a paucity of the usual ingredients and what there was was not tasty. Shredded bits of chicken with many bits of overly ripe mushy avocado, 1 tiny pice of cheese and no apple Very disappointing to say the least. My go to salad is no longer on the menu. I loved the Mediterranean Salmon Salad and alas it is no more. On another note my tuna bowl was yummy!

    Made a reservation and indicated it was a birthday because they asked. Git there and nothing was done. So why ask? Went for happy hour, they sat us and then made us move because where they sat us, happy hour wasn't honored. Moved us to another spot where it was honored, and then the wait staff was non-attentive. There were 5 customers in the entire restaurant when we were there at 3pm. So poor service. However, the food was unbelievably good. And should be for the price. Best food in Rochester.

    This was our first visit to Crave in Rochester. We were informed our table was one of their favorites - in the back by the kitchen where they wash the bar dishes. The menu was extensive but our food was mediocre. Service was the most disappointing, and we left with the impression that we were an inconvenience. This was our last visit to Crave in Rochester.

    We had a fabulous family date night at Crave! Our server Joy was amazing and she did an excellent job. We hope to see her again when we come back. Everything was great, except the mango lobster roll, not the best but glad we tried it. It’s a spendy roll so a little overpriced for my liking. My birthday dessert was a sweet finish, thank you!

    It's very good, but as with most things lately, it's kind of expensive. When the food and service are outstanding, you don't mind paying a bit more. It can get a bit noisy in the atrium area, but the view is nice.
