Great food and atmosphere. Truly a New York style restaurant in Ansonia. Great crowd every night of the week. Never disappoints.

Love this place! Very good Spanish flare food, fresh ingredients and delicious. A very nice selection of appetizers and I have not had a better Mojito. Prices can be high so try happy hour with drink and appetizer specials first, you will not be disappointed.

the food was very pricey, did enjoy the food we received. Not the fine dining atmosphere for a couple to loud. Have been there a few times, the service can be really great to poor depending on employee. The background noise is extreme. Music is always to loud for an enjoyable conversation. An eating establishment they need to turn it... More

Best food !! Never a bad meal. Great service; love it. Have frequented the place many times with friends and as a couple. Also have attended the outdoor Cinco de Mayo festivities too. All very good and worth trying.

My husband and I were with another couple visiting wineries when we decided to find a place to eat. Looking on TripAdvisor, Crave came up as the first restaurant to try. My friend, being of Cuban descent, was skeptical of finding a decent Spanish restaurant. I had a Mojito, which was delicious. We ordered some chicken croquettes for the table... More

Been there several times. Perfect music for a pseudo-Mediterranean restaurant. Wait lines can sometimes be longer than you would like but the wine list is very good, as are the tapas. Seating is crammed if you go Friday or Saturdays and be mindful of where you park due to a rash of "smash and grabs" from local criminals! Thieves hang... More

I've been to Crave about 12 times in the past 12 months. It is still one of my favorite places. They make a caipirinia (Brazilian run, lime, sugar) better than any other place. The dates, with goat cheese and bacon are a great start to the meal. Sometimes I have a few tappas for my meal. I don't have a... More

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.
