Our first visit to Crave. Overall it good and was a nice way to celebrate a birthday. S Yasin was very enthusiastic but could be a little more attentive.

Excellent food. Many options especially those with dietary restrictions. Sushi was fresh and the rice was cooked to perfection.

Crave is a stylish restaurant with a vast menu. Our experience was barely adequate. The noise level is deafening in the atrium area. Recommend sitting in the bar area. We both had the pomegranate salmon dinner. It was ok, just ok and it was delivered before we got our cocktails. Suboptimal! Crave is very popular so we may have just visited on a night when they were not hitting on all cylinders. Give them a try, you may have a better experience.

two orders got rolled into one - apology made by manager on duty - but no attempt or offer to replate was made, diners made use of small plate on table - on reflection, should have been more demanding of a replace.

Worst experience ever! We waited for two hours and not even the appetizers were delivered! After all that time they said they run out of food! Super disappointed and ruined our Mother’s Day brunch

We were disappointed with no choice for the confectionary items (first item on menu), the salad appeared to have been prepared quite some time ahead and the greens did not seem fresh. There were 2 pieces of sashimi. We were there for Easter and for the same price had a much much better choice of food, amount of food and quality of the food. Therefore, the experience on Mother’s Day was a bit of a downer with respect to choice and value for money.

It was very crowded and the Windows were closed. That was shocking, because the weather was very nice and it’s the first time in the pandemic that this place had the Windows completely closed.

We had a great visit at Crave! Our service was outstanding, absolutely top notch! Due to the design of the atrium, it is very loud in the dining area, but that’s because of all the class (no sound absorption). I would be so happy to return

Very nice setting, love the new retractable roof. It wasn’t warm enough to have it open so look forward to going back on a warmer day to experience that. Drinks and food were very good. Salmon, Sea Bass and New York Strip were all yummy.

The ambiance and the food at Crave are second to none. During our visit we weren't able to see the open ceiling and windows, but I imagine, when the weather cooperates, the experience is unique. We'll definitely be back!

It was our daughter's 10th birthday and they made her feel very special. The sushi rolls were better than the ones that we have had in the Twin Cities. Crave Rochester is quickly becoming our favorite Crave. Parking was easy coming in through the Hotel Indigo entrance in the parking ramp. We will be back.

Love the food and ambience. It was very loud when we were seated, but became more quiet once a very large table left. Our server, Manuel was exceptional and had a great personality and attention to detail. We would highly recommend to friends, in great part due to the service which made the experience that much better.

Our server started out great; he was engaged, suggested some beignets, took our drink order. Then pretty much disappeared for 30+ minutes other than droppingoffdrink refills. He was busy with other tables, but we finished our apps and sat around before he eventually took our meal order. Food was great as always, and I'm not blaming the server. It just was frustrating, and ate into our day. We placed our main order 45 minutes after we arrived but knew what we wanted immediately. It wasn't like we asked for more time to decide.

Got to experience dining at Crave for the first time. I absolutely love the variety of foods to choose from. Our family has diverse tastes and some restrictions. It was very easy for everyone to pick something in their wheelhouse. The spacing of tables made it refreshingly intimate without a lot of noise. The food experience was tasteful and well worth the price. The staff was respectful and kind. Thank you for a great Birthday dinner!!

We came here for sushi and it did not disappoint. We started off with the chicken and avocado egg rolls and it was a lot of food for an appetizer for two people (and this is not a complaint!). We ordered the Godzilla, King Kong, Dynamite, and spicy tuna rolls as our mains. I would strongly recommend the Godzilla and King Kong rolls. Our server Emmanuel was amazing. He was kind, attentive, and very courteous. We will certainly be back!

Both the soup and main course came out lukewarm. Unfortunately the waiter did not come by the check so I ate the food.

With little tweaks the food and experience could be much better.

My husband had the walleye and loved it. I had the tuna poke bowl. Fresh and fabulous. Overall ambience is great. Great service. Can't wait to be there when they open up the ceiling. We visit Mayo every three months. This is our new fave!

It was a great experience from beginning to end! Miguel is a top-notch server with a wonderful personality as well! We started with appetizers, had our entrées and finished with dessert. Every part of it was fantastic and we were stuffed!

This is our new favorite restaurant. We drove from the LaCrosse area to Rochester to specifically go to dinner at Crave and then travel back home. It was well worth it!

2nd visit to Crave, it is a much needed addition to Rochester. The food was good, service, good. It was very noisy, all the tables were full and the background music was turned up so everyone had to talk louder.
