All good, all the time and hopefully they will finish their expansion so even more people can enjoy this great Spanish influenced cuisine. Make the trip and help Crave put Ansonia back on the map.

Great little restaurant. In the center of Ansonia. We ordered Stoli Doli's (Stoli infused with pineapple) They were served in a nice-sized glass. The brussel sprouts (were candided, a bit)--delicious! We ordered only Tappas and one was better than the last. The server took good care of us! An overall excellent experience. Cannot wait to go back!

We've been here for lunch and dinner several times with different groups of friends. We've never been disappointed. From drinks to appetizers to entrees to deserts, all have been delicious. The menu is eclectic and unique.

Been here a few times and always an issue. Wrong wine, long wait for a server, standard menu dish prepared differently each time ordered. But, I continue to go back as the food is always tasty and reasonably priced despite the other inconsistencies. Also, be prepared for the noise level - very difficult to have a conversation on a packed... More

My husband was searching on a "fine dining Connecticut" site for a place for a birthday repast and noticed this place. When he said it was Latin fusion I was unimpressed...partially because it seemed pretentious and uber-trendy and partially because I had had tacos for lunch (and in Ansonia, oddly enough). But I was pleasantly surprised. Ambience and service were... More

We came with a party of 9. We made reservations ahead. We got there and they didn't have any menus. I got the hanger steak, plantains, and sweet potato au gratin. The steak was just ok. The plantains were bland. The potatoes were delicious.

I went to Crave last night with a friend. I had a livingsocial deal that was set to expire very soon. I'm happy to report that all of our selections were delicious!!!! We selected four tapas (appetizers) - pastellon, little neck clams, surtido and empanadas. We had the aguacate salad and for dessert Negro y Blanco tres leeches cake. Two... More

My husband and I needed to talk and regroup. Please understand that we have eaten literally dozens of times and, enjoyed ourselves tremendously at Crave. Normally we never go before 6:00-6:30 and on numerous occasions have been with a group of people. We arrived at Crave @ 4:15 pm. Far before the busy dinner hour. When we walked in we... More

Wonderful appetizers in a cozy restaurant. Excellent service. Order several appetizers to serve as you meal. Nice wine menu. This is a restaurant that would appeal to adults.
