    We went for the buffet and some of the food came out cold, some warm and nothing hot for both my wife and I. After sending mine back reluctantly (I'm not that guy), the food came back just barely warm at best. Waffles looked and tasted like they were microwaved. Looked like they prepared this in the kitchen in piecemeal. Near the end of buffet time and so maybe the kitchen staff was not as diligent as they should be. Didn't ask but if it were my restaurant, I would have taken off the cost of the meal that had to be redone.

    “Crave” may be an aspirational name. I was mainly unimpressed with the food. I had a Crave salad to which I added scallops. For $15 extra I was given two scallops. Really? The salad itself wasn’t great. My husband ordered a fried chicken sandwich which he liked. But the side salad had dressing poured on top and it made a pool of dressing on the plate soaking the sandwich-tip to the kitchen. Toss the salad in a separate bowl and lift it out to plate it. My son really liked his chicken Marsala.

    Apps were all amazing but the drinks were meh and the entrees were only so-so. My friend’s steak was a bit fatty, another’s ravioli was kinda boring and my short rib gnocchi was very, very bland. Overall, not worth the hype.

    Everything was fabulous the server introduced himself, went over the menu. Then the bartender came over to make some suggestions on wine according to what we were eating. The wine was delicious and so was the food they paired very well. The best was we didn’t feel rushed at all. Next we ordered dessert and after dinner cocktails. We will definitely be returning.

    Upon booking, we were informed of $100 charge for cancellation. Very average food & service. Waiter brought Mac & cheese and recommended a Chardonnay. Failed to disclose it was $30/glass. Objected to manager who defended waiter and argued they were just innocently trying to upsell wine. This establishment has one objective and it’s not to provide a nice dining experience. Caveat emptor indeed.

We were so pleased with the noise level...we were actually able to carry on a conversation.! Our server Steve was amazing and made our meal with friends very special.

    The deal for restaurant week turned out to be a very bad deal. We should have just ordered off the menu and we would possibly have had better food and definitely a better price. We were made to feel that we needed to eat fast and get out. This was our first experience at Crave and we have no desire to return.

    I used to come here all the time and the food was always on the scale of very good to amazing. This is no longer the case. Technically, the brunch menu delivered what the menu claimed; all the ingredients that were listed were on the plate. The execution, however, was not there. One person in the party ordered the Mac and cheese with broccoli. The broccoli was just steamed, unseasoned, on top of a fairly standard Mac and cheese that wasn’t anything special. Another ordered a grilled buffalo chicken on Mac and cheese which was just cubed chicken with some electric orange buffalo sauce squirted on top. I ordered the avocado toast, which featured avocado that tasted like it was just about to go bad. The overall impression was that the kitchen is just pumping out food the fasted and easiest way possible, rather than the way that would produce the best food. Which would be fine, if it were priced accordingly.

    We have always enjoyed Crave- great service, neat vibe, good food. Last night most of the dinners were excellent, but the tuna appetizer was a bit odd. Not as good as the way was previously. And the burger was over cooked as well as a bit dry, and the bun was burnt. But the mac and cheese was delicious once again!

    Great food. Must try short ribs with Gnocchi. Only thing we tend to have an issue with is their burger. It is charred and overcooked often. I am not sure why my teenagers still order it. They usually complain (to us) and only eat half because it’s so overcooked

    We were staying in Charleston for a couple nights on our way down south and had no plans for New Years Eve. We were able to get a reservation at this gem, relatively last minute. The restaurant is beautiful and very cozy. We were seated in a booth which was very conducive to conversation when the restaurant was so busy. Due to the crowd, our table wasn’t quite ready when we arrived and we were given complimentary drinks…despite only waiting less than 5 mins to be seated. The menu was tailored for NYE, but very diverse with lots of options! The food and drinks were truly some of the best we have ever had. Our waiter Jacob and crew provided for an amazing evening. If you are in the Charleston area…this venue is well worth the short trip over the bridge. (Don’t pass up their renowned Mac & Cheese!)
