Cute, Trendy upscale St Louis Park Stopover

Convenient to Doubletree and other hotels, Crave presented an upscale and trendy stopover for a quick early dinner. Great location, interesting and reasonable happy hour and bar food, and ample parking close-by. Try the Korean BBQ sliders in the bar with kimchee for a different twist. Well... read more

Let me preface this article by saying that my sensibilities are honed in an unusual way. I enjoyed my recent dinner at Crave, as did my husband. But here's why I am giving this restaurant a "just OK" rating. Ready? Here we go. While I am not averse to eating at chains (I clearly like other chain restaurants I've reviewed... More

We chose Crave for a business recognition lunch. There were 7 of us and we were seated in a private booth with a curtain that we could have completely closed for privacy. We liked the booth very much although we didn't need the privacy we found it to be a fun seating option. The food was delicious and the restaurant... More

We were fortunate enough to decide to pre-order their 4 course meal on New Year's eve. And while usually these 'prix fixe' meals at most places have small portions, and average food, this meal was literally YUMMY! It was the most imaginative, best constructed and memorable meal we've had in years. Seared scallop on a butternut squash caponata Lobster bisque... More

To celebrate the visit of a European friend, our group of four chose Crave's attractive West End location for a festive brunch. The eclectic menu offered a broad range of interesting choices. Everything was fresh, delicious and attractively presented from brunch dishes to salads to sushi. We enjoyed a comfortable booth by the window, and the restaurant's bright, upbeat ambiance.... More

This was a private group brunch. The food was delicious, The small cinnamon rolls were to die for!! Seconds, even thirds were tempting! The room was small but adequate. I hadn't been in a Craves before, the front restaurant was appealing and the staff and hostesses service was excellent. .

I have a little trouble with this place since they're menu is a little all over the place for me, but once I decided on a burger and some sushi, the meal was great. The waiting staff was nice as well. It's a little overpriced I think, but it's a "classy" place to celebrate or have an upscale dinner.

Easily found the restaurant, but took a while to find parking. Use the garage and forget trying to find a spot on the street. No reservation and was promptly seated (party of 4) in the middle of the dinner hour. Our server was very prompt and responsive. He explained the specials, got our water and drinks, appetizers were AWESOME in... More
