    Has not been in a year or two and found that the quality of the food and the service had deteriorated. Very disappointing. Two of us were dining and we ordered the tapas specials where we each had three different tapas and a dessert. The croquettes were too mushy. The arugula, salad unremarkable. The risotto fair. The paella was predominantly rice and the amount of shellfish meager. Desserts will probably the best thing on the menu but not spectacular. Service slow; Too bad Because it used to be a fun place.

    Some dishes were really great - the octopus and the mussels with chorizo. Other's were just okay. The 3 mushroom vegan risotto was Spanish rice (not Arborio) with mushrooms and broth with very little flavor that was very disappointing. Service was good with appropriate pacing of the tapas coming out to the table so you are not overwhelmed with too much food at once, and the ambiance is nice but perhaps some of the dishes need an update. The menu is clearly marked with dietary restrictions like gluten free and vegan which is appreciated.

    Lovely little place with a big tapas menu. Three mushroom risotto was divine, smooth and flavorful. Tuna tartare was very fresh with a nice sauce. They serve wine and sangria but you can also bring your own which is nice. There's a lovely dessert menu. Try the chocolate lava cake!

    We go to Cravings regularly - the service and food are wonderful and quality is always consistent. Our favorites are the pulled pork arepa, empanadas, and paella. Reservations are a must on the weekends.

    Made a reservation for 8:450 arrived at 8:50. Waited to be seated even though there were only 2 other patrons. Then as we were being seated a man came over to us and said that the kitchen was closing so unless we knew what we wanted to order they couldn't seat us. The traffic was horrific because it was town fireworks. They should never have taken the reservation and we could have gone somewhere else.

    I will NEVER go this restaurant again!!! We made a reservation for 2 but they let us sit big table ( for 4~5 people ) later then they wanted we move to smaller size table middle of having diner. So I told them can separate table from us instead of the moving seat.. but she used 'The 90 Minites Rule' as an excuse to get us out. Oh my god!! Me and my friend were kicked out of the restaurant. They ruined our weekend night!!!

    The waitress was wonderful at explaining how the restaurant worked. The food was very good and the atmosphere was lively. The only negative was the food came out sporadically. Due to gluten sensitivity I am not able to eat everything on the menu and, at times, was sitting without food while my spouse had two dishes in front of him and vice versa.

    I’ve been to Cravings 3-4 times now, and it hasn’t disappointed. Their small plates have huge flavor, the service was great- she knew when to come by, anticipated what we needed, and was quick. The ambiance is nice, it’s a pretty small restaurant, and I enjoy that cozy feel. Highly recommend! I always love the empanadas, dips, and anything with shrimp!

    Service was great. Efficient and friendly. Food was overall very good. Octopus, brussels sprouts salad, mushroom risotto all yummy. Tuna was tasty, but a little 'sloppy' for me. Sangria was good but a little too sweet, again for my taste. Overall I enjoyed Cravings and will go back to try other small plates.
