An interesting place

The decor is nice, the food is good, and our service was good. It's a bit loud, as the bar area is a very popular after work stop-off place. There is a very wide variety of food offered, including sushi.

I went to Crave to get together with a group of friends. There were 8 of us. We arrived and asked to be seated outside, there were 5 or 6 empty tables. We were told they'd move a few tables and seat us right away. After 20 minutes and watching at least 10 other groups be seated we were told.... More

Way overpriced Sushi. There is literally a Tuna roll with a $10 up charge to make it a "Crispy tuna roll" Whoa, must be diamond encrusted Tempora. Don't get me wrong, Crave is not bad by any means but I don't think people in Minnesota know good sushi and I'm saying that as a Minnesotan. I lived on each coast... More

I continue to go here for drinks only. Why? Because its easy to get in and out without all the hassle of crowds etc. The staff always looks miserable at the bar. The drinks are good but the food is forgettable. If you want to come here for drinks, you will be happy. If you come for anything else, like... 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

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 organized, well served location for fun-loving urban professionals who eat there. Not really... 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
